Hi there, orange! We’ve been waiting for your warm, zingy energy. Orange is the “wow” part of sunsets – you remember those? Now they’re finally hanging on a little later than happy hour, and you don’t have to watch them in your rearview mirror on the way home from work. Think of sweet-tart mangos and simmering saffron. Peachy-colored roses and bright turmeric-spiced curries. The paddle of duck feet, the flash of a bird’s beak. Bonus points for catching spring’s mascot – the bunny – chewing on an actual carrot.

The eyes of your littlest one open wide in wonder at what their green garden is growing. Take a moment to just sit and be in the green grass. Maybe you’ll find your lucky clover.

If your blender gets a daily workout, bravo! Smoothies are an easy way to get fruit and veggie goodness into your diet during the winter. And they’re particularly good for those eating dairy-free – the satisfying creaminess of a well-blended smoothie can’t be beat! Looking to shake things up?

She works on the company newsletters and homepage and is steadily making her way up the Scoville chart of local Texas peppers.
