Spices should be stored in a cool, dry place...not next to or near a heat source. Their shelf life will dwindle when exposed to heat!!!

Here's another easy way to add healthy foods to your diet: a morning smoothie. I make mine every day but you can make 3 days worth in a blender and have them ready to go in quart jars.

My base is romaine lettuce, spinach, lemon juice and almond butter (just almonds, nothing else). To this I add either 1/2 an avocado, a banana, or a ripe pear. To ramp up the number and type of veggies I use Dr. Cowan's Powders which are grown organically/biodynamically and sold in miron glass which keeps them fresh - swiss chard, low oxalate greens, beets, carrots, tree collards, and ashitaba all of which are packed with nutrients. I also add matcha powder.

These powders can be added to things like eggs, vinaigrettes, veggies, chili, pasta sauce, etc... and will easily increase the number of different plant parts you consume with no additional preparation required. There are hundreds of suggestions here.

@blackwhitestripe, totally agree! I wash my smoothie produce when I get home from the store and put the mixed berries in one smoothie glass container so they are easy to prep when I'm bleary eyed, and sometimes I put the ingredients that will stay fresh together in the cup the night before. And the Ninja has to stay out on the counter in my face to force me to make them!
