Happy Earth Day! There's no easier way to be one with Mother Earth than with an outdoor meal — and thanks to these four eco-friendly items, your feast will be as green as the grass beneath your picnic blanket. Watch the video to see our picks for an earth-friendly picnic, plus tips on how to pack everything from bottles of wine to smelly foods.
Upcycled, recycled — either way you spin it, there's something special about items that get another life. That's why we're loving these kitchen tools made out of everything from steel to old Coca-Cola bottles. This Earth Day, clean your veggies and serve your drinks knowing you're using products that have been made out of recycled material. All you have to do for your part is shop on. Does it get any easier than that?

Miss out on Spring break? Not to worry: mango, avocado, pineapple, and a few splashes of milk are all you need to go on a miniature tropical getaway.
Why, you might ask, should you add avocado to the smoothie? Don't skip out on it: the fruit imparts a pleasant green hue on the drink, plus it contributes to the overall thickness and mouthfeel of the smoothie, since avocados are naturally high in fat. It won't really affect the flavor, though: this smoothie is all about the mighty sweet mango and mouth-puckering pineapple.
I prefer my smoothies on the thicker side, but keep blending it with more milk until you reach your desired consistency. I like to pop my smoothie in the freezer for 10 minutes or so to really chill it up.
Earth Day is today, and it always serves as a good reminder to rethink our eating habits and cooking practices. There are so many small changes that we all can make in our everyday lives that, over time, significantly impact the world that we live in. While we may not be able to implement all of these changes all of the time, it is important to consider how our actions affect the bigger picture. Find out how you can make a difference when you keep reading.
Spring is definitely in the air and we're pumped — not only for a newly sparkling kitchen (thanks to Spring cleaning!), but also, in particular, for the colorful and diverse produce that the season brings with it.
