It’s the time of year to give thanks- for friends, family and good health! No Thanksgiving feast is complete without tasty appetizers and warm fall beverages.

Instead of conventional chips, choose Late July Organic Snacks’s USDA Organic Multigrain Chips- vetted by POB! They are non-GMO and organic, meaning without pesticides like Atrazine and Glyphosate (which are known endocrine disruptors and probable carcinogens). Pair these heavenly chips with this Organic Spinach Artichoke Dip to start your dinner the right way.

Next, before you warm up with hot apple cider, make sure you know what’s in your drink. Many store-bought ciders contain residues of 47 harmful pesticides found on conventional apples. This Thanksgiving, choose good health with this #Organic Apple Cider Recipe. Your bellies will thank us later.
