THE ANCIENT WONDERFRUIT

YUMMM!!! Stocking stuffer alert:  CaPao, the first ever brand that is creating snack foods out of the cacao fruit (normally the beans get all the love). Entirely plant-based with no added sugar. These snacks are energizing, nutrient-dense, delicious, and super convenient.

www.capaofruit.com

Cacao is an ancient fruit that has been grown by farmers in South America, Africa and other tropical regions for centuries. They are the pods whose seeds are used to make chocolate. But until now, most people haven’t had the full cacao experience because after the seeds are used, most of the remaining fruit is discarded.

Rescuing this Wonderfruit is important because cacao contains many nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron and fiber; and its husk, pulp and butter have unique tastes and textures that can be transformed into unique snacks.

What are cacao fruit snacks and why are they innovative?

Usually when we think of cacao, our next thought is chocolate, but the cacao fruit is so much more than just the cacao beans used for making chocolate!  CaPao is creating smoothie balls and fruit jerky using every part of the cacao fruit (minus the beans) leading to a nutrient-packed, energy optimizing, absolutely delicious wondersnack. These nutrient-dense, mouthwatering snacks are entirely vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. They contain no added sugar or preservatives. The snacks are individually wrapped and all of the packaging is recyclable.

Who are these for?

CaPao’s snacks are ideal as a snack before the gym (bye bananas!). Feedback from customers tells us that they are great for parents on the go. Kids who are ready to upgrade their snack game and teenagers already tiring of those “back to school” snacks they loved so much last month will love CaPao. The taste is so good and the natural energy will keep the whole family fueled. Try a smoothie ball in place of your morning coffee or even better, during your afternoon “wish I could take a nap” time. Keep the hangry at bay during traffic or long road trips. Your family and fellow drivers will thank you! If you’re not a breakfast person, customer feedback has told us that the smoothie balls can turn you into one!

It’s National Seafood Month And SLAPFISH Has Your Tail Covered

October 12, 2019

In honor of National Seafood Month, Chef Andrew Gruel, Founder and Executive Chef of  award-winning seafood focused truck turned brick and mortar, Slapfish, shares some of his best practices and tips for
shopping and buying seafood. 

  
  • Rule of thumb: if you are fearful of high levels of mercury: Don’t eat fish that require a steak-knife (Think: swordfish, bluefin tuna, marlin, shark, etc)

  • Look for a BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) logo when purchasing fish

    • The blue logo ensures the fish farm has been assessed on varying levels from feeding, to processing and harvesting.

  • Buying farm fished is safe because it is a controlled environment. I’m a huge fan of fish farming when it’s done right because it is incredibly efficient and removed pressure from wild stock species.

  • If you want to have a fail-safe approach to seafood then buy frozen seafood. When the seafood thaws it begins to develop the bacteria and histamines, but if bought frozen then you don’t risk that process.

  • Make sure there is an origin label before buying seafood at a seafood counter. The more information posted, the more trustworthy the fish monger.

  • Cooking Tips

    • “Low and slow” is always better for cooking – you can ensure it is cooked all the way through without worrying about it being overcooked.

    • People have a fear of overcooking, so if you do low and slow then it won’t dry out; also, use fresh herbs, olive oils and citrus to spruce it up!

    • General rule: For each inch of thickness, 10 minutes of cooking if ‘low and slow’ at 350 degrees

THE NON-CAFFEINATED ENERGY SUPPLEMENT MIX THAT WE ARE ADDICTED TO

September 1, 2019

When we first about Revive, we thought, oh no, another “energy supplement” – the only thing that caught our attention was this part:  “non caffeine energy generator”…

Hmm…well, that did sound interesting…And we read on about REVIVE and grew even more intrigued.

  • SFH REVIVE is formulated and clinically proven to be a non caffeine energy generator perfect for fueling your body with the energy that it needs.
  • REVIVE is unique. Other marketed energy products are in large part just mixtures of caffeine and high glycemic sugars that potentially increase insulin release and raise heart rate.
  • In clinical studies involving 62 participants over a one-month period, REVIVE’s premium blend of CoQ10, BioEnergy Ribose, and N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine, has been shown to:
  • increase energy
  • improve alertness
  • decrease fatigue
  • encourage hydration

Ok, let’s try this thing!

And LO AND BEHOLD – we were obsessed from the first taste of the Mojito. IT IS THAT INSANELY GOOD.  Not to mention – zero buzzy coffee feeling. None. Just sustained energy and hydration tested over several weeks of 2 hour mountain hikes.

“REVIVE was designed to be a biochemical energy generator by enhancing our mitochondria’s ability to generate energy (ATP). Ribose, carnitine and C0-Q -10 are absolute requirements for our mitochondria to generate energy. We have filed a US Patent Application concerning “Comestible Compositions for Promoting ATP Synthesis.” This patent teaches how a combination of Ribose, N-acetyl-L carnitine and Co-Q- 10 is an effective combination to enhance ATP Synthesis in mitochondria and thus enhance cellular energy generation (people have more energy and are more alert).”

Ingredients Explained:

  • REVIVE dissolves easily in water and has a slight sweet taste. The slight sweet taste is from ribose, a sugar by chemical structure, that does not function like a sugar at all! In fact, in contrast to other sugars, Ribose has a negative glycemic index and has been shown to lower blood glucose. Our bodies need Ribose to make ATP, the most basic form of energy.
  • Co-Q-10 is a powerful antioxidant that our bodies make naturally but production declines as we age. Co-Q-10 is an absolute requirement for energy generation Our bodies use this to generate energy at a cellular level.
  • N-Acetyl-L-Carnitine is a brain active form of Carnitine critical for energy generation. It transports fatty acids into the mitochondria so that they can be oxidized (burned) to produce energy.
Stronger Faster Healthier (SFH), a sports nutrition brand that manufactures gluten-free, soy-free and non-GMO supplements with no artificial flavors. The brand was started by a pharmaceutical and medical scientist who has designed and developed nutraceuticals to positively influence consumers’ health and wellness.
 
 
Through intense research and case studies, SFH has been able to prove that the science behind REVIVE is what differentiates their product from the traditional sugar and caffeine packed energy drinks. In a 2018 clinical study involving 62 participants over a one-month period, it was proven that their energy surged while their fatigue decreased. The results found that 85% of all participants reported increased energy or alertness. In addition, participants noted that they did not experience the extremes of jitters, racing heart or the “crash effect”, which can happen on a daily basis to most caffeine consumers. A follow up survey was given, and 58% of participants that completed it indicated their daily coffee consumption had decreased.
 
Dr. Jeff Leighton, Chief Scientist at SFH, stated “REVIVE is a unique approach to addressing low energy conditions. Biochemically, REVIVE was designed to activate mitochondria and make more energy.” SFH focused on the consumer demand for a more efficient energy intake, while also discovering ways to lead healthier lifestyles and improving quality of life. REVIVE is the solution for these needs and is an ideal product for working professionals, parents, students, and athletes. The patent-pending formula is positively changing the energy supplement industry.
 
The key ingredients in REVIVE include Bioenergy™ Ribose, which is a sugar-like molecule with a negative glycemic index. This is beneficial because our bodies use Ribose to make ATP, the most basic form of energy. REVIVE also uses a brain active form of Carnitine, which transports fatty acids into the mitochondria to produce energy. The third ingredient, CoQ10, is a powerful antioxidant that our bodies make naturally, but which declines as we age. CoQ10 supports heart and health and immune function. 


REVIVE is easy to use on the go. Each product comes with a Scoopie® funnel, a portable tool which allows you to pour the supplement easily into any shape water bottle or canteen. Study results show the effectiveness of REVIVE increases with how many times it is consumed daily. Drink one to three times daily, or as needed.
 
Available online at SFH.com, on Amazon, and in 3,900 CVS stores nation-wide. REVIVE comes in two all-natural flavors including Mojito and Citrus Punch, and retails at $34.99 for a 20 serving container. Skip the expensive coffee shop visit this afternoon and shake up some refreshing Revive for just $1.75 per serving. Your wallet and sleep schedule will thank you!

DIRTY LEMON Drops First Seasonal Drink, +aloe, To Keep Your Skin Hydrated This Summer

June 15, 2019

Summer is here! Let’s celebrate!!

My fave go-to, DIRTY LEMON, captures the essence of summer in a bottle with its first limited-edition seasonal release, +aloe. I am obsessed with Dirty Lemon and their new wellness formulations and cutting edge eye on beauty enhancing ingredients.

The formula combines the benefits of aloe vera and coconut water to deliver a thirst-quenching daily beverage to hydrate, cool and soothe summer skin. Perfect for, well, all day everyday, this summer.

“Proper hydration is often overlooked as a necessity for optimal skin health,” says Dr. Laurie Brodksy. “The vast majority of us don’t drink as much water as we should and when we become dehydrated, as we do by spending more time outside during the summer, our skin requires restoration to correct this imbalance.”

DIRTY LEMON’s +aloe is designed to replenish this moisture loss and maintain optimal hydration levels needed to prevent the most common skin concerns associated with dehydration and ensure a healthy summer glow.

The flavor profile is inspired by a beachside favorite, the mojito. The refreshing and tropical elixir contains aloe vera juice harvested from Mexico blended with organic Idonesian coconut water and paired with vanilla, mint and lime. Each bottle contains only 15 calories and less than 1g of sugar.

+aloe FORMULA:

● Aloe Vera —Packed with over 200 biologically active amino acids, minerals and immune-boosting polysaccharides to soothe, cool and hydrate inflammatory skin problems, such as sunburn, acne and rosacea

● Coconut Water —A great source of natural electrolytes as well as vitamin C, potassium, calcium, magnesium and glucose, the primary energy component of skin cells

● Lucuma —†Abundant in beta-carotene, zinc, iron and vitamin B3, studies show the Peruvian superfood has wound remedying properties and supports skin rejuvenation

+aloe BENEFITS *Provided by Dr. Brodsky:

● Hydrates —Aloe vera contains mucopolysaccharides (sugar molecules) that help bind water droplets to the skin, replenishing cells from the inside out

● Heals —Studies show ingesting aloe vera reverses the effects of aging and visibly reduces wrinkles. The amino acids in aloe vera soften dehydrated skin cells, while zinc acts as an astringent to tighten enlarged pores for a more supple appearance.

● Protects —Aloe vera provides an antioxidant-rich barrier to fight off acne-causing bacteria and inflammation associated with free radical damage

Plumps —Studies show drinking aloe vera stimulates fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin fibers, helping skin look smoother and feel more elastic

+aloe is available for a limited time only on June 17th from $45/case. To order visit DIRTYLEMON.com
