We’ve partnered up with Honest Tea to do a 5 day challenge +GIVEAWAY! Day one starts on Monday, and the challenge ends on Friday. All you need to do is take a pic of your challenge activity on facebook, instagram, or twitter, and tag us in it with the hashtag #mywellnesspledge. We came up with super simple and fun pledges. We’ll randomly pick one participant who has done the challenge and they will get a 30 day supply of unsweetened Honest Tea- we’ve tried their stuff and it’s pretty damn good. It’s organic wholesome goodness packed with all the magical benefits of tea leaves. So with that being said…who’s down?
Starting next week, we will be releasing new nutrition and cooking videos every MONDAY for an entire year. If you haven’t already, get ready by subscribing to our youtube channel.
To celebrate our releaunch we wanted to do a vintage 50s pin-up photo shoot. If you dig the pics, remember to like and share with your friends. Thank you guys so much for rocking with us this far. We are so excited for what is in store. xoxo, Wendy and Jess
Blend 5 cloves of garlic, 1-2 tomatos, 1/2 bunch of cilantro, 1 onion and 1 bell pepper with a little water and/or olive oil and then freeze the mixture in a couple ice trays. Add a cube or two to spice up dishes you make throughout the week (beans, soup, pasta, salad, etc). Enjoy the fresh flavor burst without any chopping or dish washing. #FoodHeavenMadeEasy

Big thanks to everyone who participated in our giveaway! It was a tough decision, but in the end we had to go with Kevina from Brooklyn, NY. We judged based on creativity, balance and overall healthiness of the meal.
Kevina impressed us by remixing our unhealthy fried chicken and french fry platter into this scrumptious and healthy meal.
I would switch the french fries with some yummie & healthy baked sweet potato fries. And then take some lean boneless chicken & stuff it with low-fat ricotta cheese, spinach, and grape tomatoes(cut up). To mimic the crunchiness of the fried chicken, you could coat the chicken with panko bread crumbs & sear it in some olive oil before putting it in the oven. The stuffing inside the chicken would replace the dipping sauce.
Kevina was also kind enough to provide us with a healthy eating tip:
When grocery shopping, always read the ingredients list! You’d be shocked at some of the things they put in pre-packaged food. If you can’t pronounce or identify an ingredient, DON’T EAT IT!
“With salsa music playing in the background and kale decor in their hair, nutritionists Wendy Lopez and Jess Jones are producing a cooking show that teaches viewers how to eat and shop for healthy, affordable meals. Super healthy and super affordable, as Wendy would say.”
