Spread the Love | A SIMPLE, HEALTHY HUMMUS RECIPE (GUARANTEED TO IMPRESS)

By Katie Galeotti


It's safe to say that in the project: CLEAN FOOD household, we're hummus fanatics. And why not? It's full of protein, fiber, and vitamins – making it one of the healthier dip options. But, as much as we love to eat it, a thought struck me: what would it be like to make it from scratch rather than buy it pre-packaged? So, yesterday, as I prepared Mother's Day dinner, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make my own hummus for the first time (which is actually a little risky, now that I think about it). The result? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the preparation was simple and the taste was rich, creamy, and delicious.  Whether you decide to make it for yourself, for friends, or to impress your mother, we're sharing our recipe – guaranteed to wow.

Clean Style, Clean Living | THREE TIPS ON LIVING STYLISH AT HOME, MAKING A BEAUTIFUL LIFE

By Dominick Hiddo

Home of Naomi Watts + Liev Schreiber / Arch Digest

Home. It's a sanctuary. A retreat. A place of refuge. Ideally, home should be a place to let go of all the subtle inhibitions and nuances of our external lives. And truthfully, it should represent the truest and most liberated expression our entire being. What we see in our home will provide a beautiful mirror reflection of what we see in ourselves. This is probably why when we have people over for a visit, we're always so super particular as to who's granted access to our humble abode. And whether you love to entertain or not, we all love when those fortunate few come into our home and experience those other beautiful parts of our life: our food, our family, our inner beauty, our entertainment, and most importantly, our decor and style.

The color combinations of fabrics and drapes, of wood finishes and rug choices, it all adds to the look and feel of our home. The choices in art, the creative display of coffee table books, the fragrances pervading the air of the home, the arrangement of furniture, fixtures and florals, it's all super important for creating that clean living lifestyle in our place of solitude. And this is not just for your guests, this is for you: for your peace, happiness and tranquility. We do this to feel good about our home: when we leave it and when we return. So whether you're super organized and cleanly, or a hoarder of all things beautiful (and not so beautiful), here are some things to keep in mind when creating a stylish home with a peaceful energy flow.

Superfood Sunday | STRENGTH, HEALING AND REJUVENATION IN ONE LITTLE RASPBERRY

By Dominick H.


Superfood Sunday is a weekly series where project: CLEAN FOOD features the absolute best foods to nourish – and naturally heal – your body.  To help you start each week right, we reveal the one must-have food to add to your diet. Enjoy, and share your inspiration with us by tagging #projectCLEANFOOD on Instagram.

This fruit may appear small, but it definitely packs a super strong dose of nutritious benefits. Raspberries are probably the most powerful of the berries by far (next to blueberries and blackberries). They can be found in many parts of the world, from Asia to Central America, and even right here in the USA. The raspberries come in many varieties and many species; so it's not uncommon to see them in other colors like purple, yellow, and even orange. The most common color of raspberry is red: and even the red ones come in various varieties as well.

Each raspberry has a balanced set of nutritional benefits that are not always the same in each variety. So depending on where the raspberry is cultivated, one variety may have more protein or more manganese than others, for example. This is great because the raspberry will provide an adequate and balanced nutritional boost that is most likely necessary for that particular environment of cultivation.

Rinse & Repeat | THE SAFE, NON-TOXIC WAY TO MAKE YOUR LAUNDRY SOFT & STATIC-FREE

By Katie G.


Laundry is probably one of my least favorite chores. I get it, some people love it – the peaceful monotony of folding coupled with the smell of fresh clothes – but not me. For as long as I can remember, I have gladly left laundry in the very capable hands of my laundromat and never thought twice about it. Well, that was before I ended up at the dermatologist's office a few weeks ago, with a full-body allergic reaction. As she looked at me, she said, without hesitation, "this is an allergy to fabric softener. I just know it." Now, I am allergic to a lot of things, but fabric softener was never one of them. But, as I scanned my body, I knew that I had to change something. And luckily, through trial and research, I found a pretty incredible alternative to fabric softener that is safe, non-toxic, and most likely in abundance in your home.

Bella Moda | WHEN YOU STEP INTO YOUR OWN BEAUTIFUL STYLE, YOUR LIFE CHANGES

By Dominick H.

For some of us, stylish clothes and accessories are just vain idols of our materialistic fashion industry. Um, duh. Of course they are. And, with a little twist of life enhancing benefits. We all love fashion and style. There are many, though, that tend to relegate our industry of beautiful things as just merely, "stuff". And in essence, it is stuff. But our dear friend Miranda Priestly, would abhorrently disagree. The [fictional?] fashion queen has beautifully said that this thing we call 'stuff' only came to be because of the beautiful fashion styles from designer collection upon collection, which would eventually trickle down to the casual corners of the world through mass production. So thank goodness for innovative designers like DVF, Ralph Lauren, and Marc Jacobs for their amazing creations leading to our beautiful and joyful bounty of stuff. Ah that stuff. It brings us such sweet joy. It makes us feel good. It makes us feel appreciated. And not because we try to be stylish and fashionable. But, it's when we become that fashion and style, our lives pour over with happiness. It's Bella Moda (Italian, pronounced Bel-la Mo-da): that beautiful fashion of yours. That individual unique style and fashion. It is when we step into that and live like the fashion deities that we all are, then we experience that life changing and enhancing bliss. But how does this happen? When does this happen? Well, in all honesty it's not something you're taught, but it's something you just kinda figure out: like most things in this wonderful world.
