Hurricane Harvey Relief - Global Giving

I'm sending out this newsletter a day early to announce we are partnering with Global Giving and the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund to assist the flood victims in Houston. 

For the next two weeks we are donating 10% of your purchases to Global Giving and the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.  We've vetted the organization and learned  GlobalGiving is a top-rated (4-star) charity on  Charity Navigator . They are also accredited by the  BBB Wise Giving Alliance . Learn more about them here .

Crews in Texas have found the bodies of over 40 victims of Harvey's wrath, and warned that the number of dead would almost certainly soar as water levels across much of the Houston area start to recede. 

FEMA administrator Brock Long said more than 230 shelters are operating in Texas, housing more than 30,000 people. Let's support the Harvey Relief Fund together.

All PPI purchases made from September 1-15,
10% will be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund with Global Giving

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will support longer-term recovery efforts.

Do something nice for yourself while helping 
flood victims.

Why Hyaluronic Acid in our 
Retinol Plus?

Most of you know that Retinol is a  proven pro-aging ingredients in skin care. Doctors discovered its wrinkle fighting benefits when prescribing it for acne in the 70's.

D ermatologists noticed almost immediately that a lot more than just breakouts were vanishing. Scores of patients began reporting a reduction in fine lines and hyperpigmentation, and the stampede began.

The problem with prescription strength Retinol though, is it can be very harsh and drying to those of us with sensitive skin. It can also cause redness and peeling.

Finding a formula that straddles the gentle vs. effective divide is key.  We've found a way to reap the wrinkle-fighting benefits of Retinol minus the side effects with Hyaluronic Acid. 

Hyaluronic acid has the stunning capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture, making it the perfect partner for Retinol.

As we age, our skin also loses the ability to preserve moisture, resulting in the visible loss of firmness, pliability, and plumpness. Hyaluronic acid swoops in with the ability to replenish moisture that is crucial to having younger-looking, supple skin. The combination of Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid is magical!

Purchase Retinol Plus today and we will donate 10% to Global Giving and Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund!
Chick n Pasta Alfredo 

Dairy free Alfredo Sauce in 15 minutes! Creamy, satisfying and flavorful. I served with  Edamame Spaghetti,  Chick n Strips (Beyond Meat brand pictured) mushrooms and broccoli.

  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 2-3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbls white wine
  • 2 cups + 2 Tbls. vegetable broth  
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 heaping cup roasted unsalted cashews (soaked for 8 hrs in hot water if you don't have a high powered blender)
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice (don't omit, as this omits any cashew flavor!)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (I used a little more)
  • 4 oz mushrooms, sauteed
  • 1 crown broccoli, broken into bite sized pieces
  • 6 oz. Beyond Meat Grilled Strips
  • Pasta of your choice - I used Edamame Spaghetti

Saute onion in 1 Tbls. Olive oil, over medium heat. Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper. Saute for 4-5 minutes until translucent. Add 2 Tbls wine. Let reduce until wine is gone. Add 3/4 cup vegetable stock. Cook about 10 minutes until all liquid is evaporated. Add garlic, saute 3 minutes, add 1/4 cup vege broth. Cook until veges are creamy and liquid is gone.

Add mixture to Vitamix or other high powered blender (will not work in food processor). If you don't have high powered blender, be sure to soak cashews at least 8 hrs. or sauce will be grainy.

Add remaining cup of broth, salt, pepper, cashews, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast (I found yeast at Trader Joe's). Blend on high for 2 minutes until creamy. Taste to see if you need more lemon juice. 

Saute mushrooms, broccoli in 1 tbls olive oil over medium heat 5-6 minutes. Add a little broth (2 Tbls) and steam the last 2 minutes. Add strips to pan and heat 3 minutes. Don't overcook the strips like I did the first time. It made them too chewy.

Serve vege's, strips, and alfredo sauce over your choice of pasta. I used Edamame Pasta purchased at Costco. Cooks in 3-4 minutes!
