Jaime’s Picks | by Jaime Slavin
Review of clean eats, household and beauty products for a healthy life by our very own Jaime Slavin
I first discovered this product at the One of a Kind Show when I saw a swarm of people around their booth; I had to see what the buzz was about. Wouldn’t you know it was about a beeswax wrap that keeps food fresh! Say goodbye to plastic cling wrap on your food. This is important from an environmental and health perspective, as the chemicals in plastic not only leach into our environment, they leach into our food.
I love using my Abeego to wrap foods on the go such as carrots and celery sticks, apple slices and sandwiches. It’s also awesome to use for foods that you would typically store in the fridge with plastic wrap, such as a premade salad or half used cucumbers that you want to seal in the freshness. Best part, it is reusable, so it’s the wrap that keeps on giving! Check out the website for more details.
Raw Juice Guru: rawjuiceguru.com
It was love at first sip for this juicy goodness. Whether you are new to the juice world or have dabbled in a juice cleanse every now and then, this juice guru is for you. It was exceptionally refreshing to see these cold pressed, organic, raw juices delivered in a glass bottle. Again, this is a boon to our environment, but it also a boon to our health. There are a bevy of juices to choose from, 900 to be exact. Out of the five I sampled, my favourite was their green juice packed with a variety of green veggies and a few fruits to perfectly round out the flavour. Your taste buds, organs and cells will thank you for this, whether you opt to incorporate juices in your daily regime or you choose to partake in a juice cleanse. Raw Juice Guru makes it easy for you to do either! Check out their website to learn how to place your order.
Tissue and paper products that are treeless! How can that not excite you? The amount of trees we kill everyday for our household needs are ludicrous. Consider this: Globally humans cut down around 900,000 trees daily for paper products and 27,000 trees for toilet paper alone! It is a relief that Caboo’s products are made from a more sustainable source, sugarcane and bamboo! Bonus, Caboo’s products are free of inks, dyes and chemicals.

Hooray for Hurraw! Seriously. This lip balm is incredible. Silky smooth, loads of delicious flavours and it’s actually nourishing for our lips, which is rare in the cosmetic world of synthetic products. Hurraw is all raw, organic, vegan and fair trade. Feel good about what you’re putting on your lips. Remember, what goes on your body goes in your body, so steer clear from lip balms with funky ingredients. Hurraw does not use any petroleum, parabens, preservatives, artificial flavors or colours. Check out all the amazing flavours on their website and learn more about this lip-smacking product.
