Demo: Mad Hippie Advanced Skin Care @ The North End Store

It used to be that you had two choices when it came to skin care:  Choose a traditional brand with sophisticated anti-aging actives, but run the risk of exposing your body to harmful synthetic additives, or choose a natural skin care line that while safe, did little more than hydrate the skin.  Well, now there’s another choice….
Here at Mad Hippie we formulate our products with two things in mind – safety and efficacy.  We just thought, why can’t you have both?

And, while many skin care lines utilize simply 1-2 active ingredients, requiring a person to buy a multitude of different products, at Mad Hippie we pack each and every bottle chock-full of anti-aging actives, all formulated to compliment one another & work in synergy. 

So, if you are looking for an all natural & safe way to improve the appearance of your skin, you’ve come to the right place.  By putting in only the good stuff & none of the bad, Mad Hippie offers a breakthrough in battling skin discoloration & wrinkles.

Class: Cookin' With Kids: Burrito Bowls!

Burrito Bowls with Homemade Refried Beans & Easy Cilantro Salsa

What kid doesn’t love burritos with all the fixin’s?  We’ll learn how to make our own refried beans, a really yummy and quick cilantro salsa, and why and how to soak our rice before cooking.  Kids will get to assemble their own burrito bowls once we’ve made all the components of the meal – choosing their favorite ingredients.  
All recipes are gluten-free, egg-free and nut-free.  One recipe contains animal foods, and any dairy will be optional.  
Kendy Radasky, a Nutritional Therapist and self-described foodie enjoys testing new recipes on her picky 6-year old son. Her two favorite places to spend time are the garden and the kitchen – using fresh, organic, homegrown ingredients in the meals and snacks she creates for her family. Both she and her son experience food sensitivities, so much of Kendy’s exploration with new recipes centers around gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free options. In her work as a Nutritional Therapist, Kendy guides mothers and moms-to-be, who sometimes feel depleted by the responsibilities of family and work, to deeply nourish themselves so they can reclaim their vitality and creativity, and more fully nurture those they love.

Suggested age range: 5-10 years old.  Kids up to age 12 or 13 are welcome to join us if they are not experienced cooks, this class is designed for the beginner to intermediate parent-helper.

Adults are free with paid kid’s registration. Each child will require a purchased ticket.
