Jen’s Pick: Peeled Snacks

Some of my favorite snacks of all time, I cannot keep Peeled Snacks keep to myself; they’re like gummy treats for adults made with organic and all-natural ingredients  –  no sugar or oil added. I can’t go a day without some of their dried mango.

Peeled supports local farmers and growers when organic crops are not readily available, and they strive to use the most environmentally sustainable business practices. For their product display cases, they use recycled paper making them not only delicious, but ecologically friendly.

Take a bite out of that!

 

Celebs Who Support Ethical Fashion

Aside from beauty, I have two other obsessions: celebs and their style. Imagine how thrilled I am to find more and more celebrities incorporating ethical fashion into their everyday wardrobe. An increasing number of Hollywood’s elite have been associated with sustainable style, including: Jennifer Aniston, Sheryl Crow, Rachel Bilson, Alicia Silverstone, Adrian Grenier, Cameron Diaz, Natalie Portman.

So spill, tweet or post on Facebook the eco-friendly brands hanging out in your close.

Brunch Date!

What every neighborhood needs and every New Yorker wants is a chill, go-to Sunday brunch spot. So this weekend I suggest you extend your Saturday dinner-date with your Vday crush (or your favorite single girlfriends) to Sunday morning brunch at Jane in the West Village. This American bistro is the perfect downtown spot for two (or more). The vanilla bean French toast is to die for. Ohh and this comes with an alcoholic beverage of your choice (good morning mimosas)! Unlike many NYC brunch spots they do accept reservations. Being as chic as Jane is you can expect a crowd so be sure to go to opentable.com before you attempt a walk-in! And this is no plain Jane, the ingredients that make their hearty dishes so amazing are sought out to be local, natural, organic & sustainable. Enjoy!
