Healthy Recipes for Your Next Sports Party

Now that most sports are back in full swing, Teatulia Organic Teas is here to help you plan your next big party with some delicious, healthy recipes that will make a hometown victory taste that much better.

The recipes featured below are from “Out Cooking It – Recipes from Cancer Survivors & Supporters”, a collection full of yummy, healthy, and easy to make recipes submitted by cancer survivors. Our long time friends at First Descents, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young adults battle cancer, put the collection of recipes together. We have contributed to a number of their works and even offered up our Tea Bar for the photo-shoot of all these delicious recipes!

The proceeds from the book will go to helping young adults who are battling cancer cope through various recreational and outdoor activities. To learn more about First Descents and their cause, visit their website at: https://firstdescents.org/.
