Natural Year Challenge: Month Nine

Welcome to Month Nine of the momsAWARE Natural Year Challenge! It's never too late to follow along on our 10-step journey to a healthier, more natural lifestyle. Join us for this month's topics:

  • Natural Year Challenge: Household Edition

    Natural Air PurifiersClean Your Air. Most commercial air fresheners do little to purify the air and much to hamper our health. In our Month Nine Household Challenge we explore safe, natural ways to freshen the air in our homes and offices, while actually reducing the number of toxins we breathe. Baking soda, essential oils, houseplants, and more—you'll be surprised by the cost-saving simplicity of these healthy alternatives!

  • Natural Year Challenge: Food EditionHealthy Snack Ingredients

    Make a Healthy Snack. In our Month Nine Food Challenge we learn how to make natural, nutritious snacks that even your kids will love! Energy bars, fruit leather, dried fruit, kale chips—pick your favorite to try this month and see if you don't find yourself enjoying familiar foods in a whole new way! Great recipes and a video demonstration of Andrea's popular fruit leather are included to help you along the way!
