Fun in the Sun

Hey everyone! It is summer time and it is officially the time of year I miss my hometown area the most. I grew up spending summers in Surf City, NJ on Long Beach Island and spent probably 8 hours a day in the sun. Well, now we know that is not the best idea and also that if you are going to surf the summer away, you better be wearing some strong sunblock. Some of my favorites include: Dr. Hauschka SPF 20, Aubrey Organics Green Tea SPF 25 & California Baby SPF 30 Fragrance Free (for the little ones). For more information on summer sun protection check out this pdf of our Be Good To Your Whole Body brochure from June. Don't forget to grab some Aloe Vera Gel too, just in case you do get burned, it is still the best for soothing sun-fried skin. On another note, if you are like me with stress, travel and the general day-to-day chaos, you might not always eat enough vegetables or greens. This month we launched a great EXCLUSIVE product from the folks at Amazing Grass called Amazing Meal. There are 3 flavors (Original, Chocolate and Pomegranate-Mango) and it provides a power-packed punch with 3000mg of raw greens, a serving of protein, a blend of goji, maca, açaí and other antioxidant rich foods, complemented with a probiotics and a comprehensive enzyme blend. It is guaranteed to liven up your morning shake or give you a quick boost while on the run this summer. Have fun!

I agree that travel can be tough on the body. My wife and I needed some much deserved R & R so we decided to take our new motorcycle for a small road trip from Tampa to Sarasota Florida (about a 150 miles round trip). We had a excellent time including going to the John and Mable Ringling museum, hanging out at Lido beach and taking up some of the sights on the bike. On our last day of vacation we were delighted to come across a Whole Foods Market in downtown Sarasota Florida. There were lots of folks sitting outside having a healthy meal and enjoying the sunset. Filling the effects of a not so healthy breakfast earlier that day and dinner the night before, we decided our bodies deserved what Whole Foods had to offer. The meal was amazing as well. We had the perfect table for people watching as well. What a great place to put a Whole Foods Market. Now if you would only build one in Tampa I would really be a very happy guy :) Brent Bradley Podshowradio.com
