Put on a sombrero, it’s Cinco de Mayo

There’s no time for siesta, only fiesta on this fifth day of May!  It’s a day to celebrate American-Mexican culture and that means parties, dancing, singing and partaking of delicious Mexican food.

To get your senses excited, check out the following three recipes (a main meal, a snack and a dessert) that are flavorful and nutritious, and which incorporate products by PURE. Whether you’re hosting the party or attending, these will surely satisfy.

Tortilla Bake with Mila® chia

Simply delicious main meal that the whole family will enjoy. With the addition of Mila, you know you’re getting your daily serving of nutrition. The fiber found in Mila is predominantly soluble fiber, a form that may be especially beneficial for promoting cardiovascular health. *

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ lbs. lean ground turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 16-oz. cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 16-oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 scoops Mila chia
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 package tortillas, cut into strips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook turkey, onion, bell pepper and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until turkey is no longer pink. Drain.
  3. Combine turkey with remaining ingredients, except the tortilla strips.
  4. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with tortilla strips.
  5. Top them with half of the mixture, spreading evenly.
  6. Repeat layers, alternating between tortilla strips and mixture.
  7. Cover and bake for 25 minutes, or until heated through.

Goji Salsa

This simple and colorful salsa is easy to make and tastes delicious! Serve with chips or on tacos.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe mangos, diced
  • ½ cup Goji superfruit
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, combine the bell pepper, onion, cilantro and jalapeno.
  2. Drizzle with the juice of one lime and mix well.
  3. Season with salt to taste.
  4. For best flavor, let the salsa rest for 10 minutes or longer.

Mila Horchata Pudding

A horchata is a refreshing Mexican drink made with rice, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. We’ve taken the basic drink and added Mila chia for a nutritious and fiber-filled pudding.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup Mila® chia
  • ½ cups hot water
  • 1 ¼ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 14 oz. coconut milk, canned

Instructions:

  1. Place the Mila in the hot water and let it sit for 15 minutes. The Mila will absorb the water.
  2. Mix in all the other ingredients and let the pudding chill in the refrigerator.

Meet IBO Cozy Bixler

Cozy Bixler is a single mom of four children, ages 7-16. Since losing her late husband to cancer ten years ago, Cozy understands the importance of Whole Health for her family. She taught Pilates during the day and always prayed for a way to generate an extra income stream while also being available for her children.

In August 2018, Cozy enrolled with PURE’s 1500 pack and got busy sharing the products with others. She plugged in to the system offered by her upline, attended all PURE events, watched every training video, and consistently dialed into weekly training calls. Her diligence and hard work paid off. She earned the rank of Platinum Director in her first week, and the prestigious rank of Diamond in her fifth week!

Cozy loves every aspect of this business, and gets her family involved as well. She makes sure her children see both the health and financial benefits that PURE provides.

“The cleanse/balance/build/focus system through PURE has helped my family with focus issues, sleep issues and more,” said Cozy. “My favorite product is Organic Sulfur because of its amazing health benefits.”*

Cozy has earned several PURE Destinations trips, two of which her children attended with her. Along with these blessings, Cozy feels grateful for the new relationships she has made at PURE. She believes she could not have had the success she’s had without the help, guidance and encouragement from her team leaders and fellow IBOs.

Reuse those empty bottles and packaging

Let’s make an extra effort to upcycle our PURE packaging this Earth Day. It can be a fun thing for the family to do and it helps reduce our environmental footprint.

Think about how much you recycle daily. Each week, my recycling bin fills up before the week is even over. Recycling is a must; it’s the first step in reaching sustainability. Through recycling, products are broken down into raw materials to be made into new things.

Another great alternative to recycling to upcycling, or repurposing the old. Upcycling  keeps waste from entering our landfills and reduces the amount of CO2 entering our atmosphere that happens when we use resources to create new products. It can also save you money.

Check out these creative ways to upcycle our PURE packaging.

Glass bottles (GoYin and superfruits):

  • Paint it and use as a vase.
  • Fill with sand or shells for decorative purposes.
  • Store lentils or rice and top with a cork.
  • Insert a candlestick for decoration.

Bags (ENERGY, Shakes and GPS):

  • Shred or cut into strips and use as cushioning when packaging gifts in boxes.

Tubs (ENERGY, Organic Sulfur):

  • Use to hold small screws and nails.
  • Create planters for flowers or herbs.
  • Make organizers for a bathroom, kitchen or workbench.
  • Organize kids pencil and pen organizer.
  • Make a piggie bank.

Small bottles (Metabolic ONE, Organic Sulfur):

  • Storage, storage, storage.
  • Create soap bottles. All you need is a twist-on dispenser spout.
  • Create a spice organizer.

Large bottles (CalciuMK+ and Daily Build Liquid):

  • Make a bird feeder and help nature at the same time. Puncture sides and add sticks for landing places. Attach rope and fill with birdseed.
  • Create a drip feeder to use for irrigation. Puncture with holes and place underground, near a plant, slightly above the soil surface.

Spray bottles:

  • Mix water with essential oils and refresh the air.
  • Fill with weed repellant, undiluted white vinegar and spray away.
  • Store glass cleaner: Mix ¼ cup rubbing alcohol, ¼ cup distilled white vinegar, 1 Tablespoon cornstarch, 2 cups warm water and 10-15 drops essential oil.
  • Fill with an insect repellent – 2 Tablespoons witch hazel, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon vodka and 100 drops essential oil.
  • Wash your produce with 1 part vinegar and three parts water.
  • Fill it with windshield cleaner and keep in your car.

PURE Destinations: Bermuda

Bermuda is a group of islands like none other — it’s where British culture blends with laid-back Caribbean beats and where pastel-colored homes, pink-sand beaches and green fairways dot the landscape. PURE is bound for this spectacular island getaway this August on the PURE Destinations 2019 Summer Cruise.

Bermuda, the main island, is only 22 miles in length and 2 miles across at its widest point, so no matter where you stand, you’ll have breathtaking views of blue for as far as the eye can see. Not just any blue, but the most beautiful turquoise blue!

The island is divided into districts, or parishes. Three major roads run from east to west: North Shore Road, Middle Road and South Road. This is the largest port on the island and where our cruise ship will dock, at King’s Wharf.

Points of Interest

Hamilton, the capital, is centrally located on the island. This is Bermuda’s financial center with a population of just over 1,000. Wave to Bermuda shorts-clad businessmen on their scooters making their way to work. Explore the town by foot and admire the brightly colored buildings. Excellent golfing and shopping opportunities abound as well as museums, art galleries and gardens. Notable things to see:

  • Bermuda Aquarium – discover Bermuda’s underwater ecosystem
  • Fort Hamilton – historic site with breathtaking views
  • Front Street – clothing, jewelry and souvenir shopping
  • Crystal Caves – discovered by boys looking for their lost cricket ball
  • Queen Elizabeth Park – garden with statues and monuments

St. George is a quaint town with cobblestone streets, historic buildings and colonial architecture. This is Bermuda’s former capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is located on the east end of the island. Notable things to see:

  • Tucker House Museum – a look at early Bermudian life
  • St. Peter’s Church – oldest Anglican church in Western hemisphere
  • Tobacco Bay beach – underwater coral reefs
  • King’s Square – local gathering place
  • Fort St. Catherine – dioramas and antique weapons

The Royal Naval Dockyard is a 19-century fortress located at the west end of the island, in Sandy’s Parish. This historic site was used during the War of 1812. It was a strategic base for England in the Atlantic and an active shipyard during the First and Second World Wars. It is now home to shopping, dining and entertainment. Notable things to see:

  • Dolphin Quest – interactive encounter
  • National Museum of Bermuda – maritime and island history
  • Snorkel Park – see natural wonders of the sea
  • Clocktower shopping mall – galleries and shops
  • Bermuda Rum Cake Company – a traditional treat
