Tips for savoring the last of summer

Posted on August 14, 2017 by Bennett Coffey | 1 Comment


We hope you've been thoroughly enjoying your summer. 

How does this happen every year? One day it’s July 4th and the next it’s mid-August. It always blows us away how quickly it all happens. We wanted to touch base before the summer comes to a close to give you some updates and to share some of our tips for enjoying these last few weeks of Summer.

For those of you who aren't on island with us all the time, maybe you've heard by now that we are now serving food at our cafe in Vineyard Haven. That's right, breakfast, lunch, dinner and more! Check out our menu here to see all that we have to offer. If you haven't tried it yet you are SERIOUSLY missing out. We're talking dips, spreads, sandwiches, salads, juices, smoothies, tarts and tons more. If you're here visiting be sure to stop by and see us. 

No matter where you live, be sure to soak up the rest of your summer in whatever small ways you can, September is just around the corner. Here are some of the ways we will be savoring the rest of our summer: 

-Take the scenic route
Do you always drive home from work the same way? Try taking the longer, more scenic route and soak up some beautiful views. 

-Take 10 minutes (or more!) to soak up some Vitamin D
Taking a quick break from your routine to soak up some rays can seriously give you a dose of energy and maybe a much needed mood-boost. 

-Breathe more!
Seriously. When we slow down and sink deeper into the moment by deepening and lengthening each breath, we can slow time down! Although time is still moving at the same pace, when we are more present time won't feel like it's racing by quite as fast. 

-Catch a sunset
Break up your nightly routine by going outside after dinner and watching the sun set. Such a great way to put things in perspective. How lucky are we to be on this globe rotating around the sun? What a trip. 

Happy Summer everyone, hope to see you all soon.

Spring Cleaning Body and Soul

Posted on March 01, 2017 by Bennett Coffey | 0 Comments

Hi Friends, 
Hard to believe, but this month marks the first day of spring on March 20th! It's always interesting when the seasons change. 
March is typically a slow month here on the island. But everywhere else seems like it gets a little more of a taste for spring. It’s when we start thinking about GREENS again. Greens are nutritional powerhouses and help cleanse our insides. It’s a great time to start adding fresh leafy greens and sprouts to your meals to help your liver detoxify from the heavier winter months. Winter months are typically filled with more comforting foods and sometimes this creates a little build up in our systems. Mother nature is aware of this and that’s why fresh greens, sprouts, dandelion etc start to come into season because they are great cleansing foods. It’s a nice time to give your system a little refresher before the warmer months come! Aside from adding more leafy greens to your meals, also try this cleansing water you can easily make at home and sip throughout your day.

Recipe:
4-6 cups of filtered water
1/3 organic cucumber, sliced
1/2 red grapefruit, sliced
1/2 organic lemon, sliced
1 tbs loosely packed mint
Place all ingredients in a pitcher and let it sit for at least an hour, store in your refrigerator and sip throughout the day. When the water runs out, refill it! The sliced veggies/fruit will last a few days in the refrigerator until you might want to refresh and start again. 

This is a great month to also take inventory of other areas of your life and maybe reassess where you are mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It’s nice to pause every once in a while and make yourself aware of certain things you may be feeling so that you can set goals and move forward in an empowered way instead of staying on auto-pilot for too long. This is a great time to journal and work out some of your unprocessed feelings and emotions. Or take more alone time, maybe some solo walks carving out some time for reflection. Spring is such a wonderful opportunity to reboot and refresh, how do you feel during the transition from winter to spring? Please share in the comments! 

Keepin' it real,
Ky & Bennett
