Orlando’s Best Salad Bar: Greens and Grille

Orlando’s Best Salad Bar: Greens and Grille

The best salad bar on the planet is seriously greens & grille. The greens are organic, and the dressings and vinaigrettes are housemade. You can indeed have it your way by choosing what type of protein your heart desires from beef, turkey, salmon, chicken, or 

Could Your Sunscreen Be Toxic?

Could Your Sunscreen Be Toxic?

Last year we went on a hunt to seek out sunscreens that have an SPF number that was not too high, but moderate and effective. Some dermatologists have reported a high SPF number could be damaging. We also went a step further and investigated the 

Sustainable Independence Day

Sustainable Independence Day

We know supermarkets all across America will try to get consumers to purchase conventional brands by running special promotions this Fourth of July but don’t give in. Think of your family and friends by buying meat, produce, and condiments that are raised and produced with your health and well-being in mind. There are so many great American food companies that are doing the right thing by putting consumers first while making a good profit. That alone is another reason to celebrate the stars and stripes. Below are a few items that I believe will make your holiday celebration extra special. Don’t just keep this good information for yourself. Share it with the world. These specialty food items deserve world-class fame on Independence Day and beyond.

1. Sir Kensington Organic Mayo

Whether you are in need of a little mayo for your famous potato salad or just on a burger, Sir Kensington mayo has got you covered. This organic mayo is by far the best mayo I’ve consumed and its made with organic sunflower oil. Just what summer ordered and you don’t have to worry about guessing whether this substance is real mayo or not; you will taste it and never go back to the so-called nation’s number one seller. Try it for yourself you won’t regret it.

2. Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Juice

Grab a bottle of the best lemon juice and make some lemonade for your guests. Consumers are always looking for a way out of squeezing lemons by hand. Although we know there is nothing like freshly squeezed lemon juice, we also understand you could be short on time. Try Santa Cruz’s organic lemon juice, its straight up lemon juice and nothing else added.

3. Rudi’s Bakery Organic White Hamburger Buns

Don’t forget the buns for your backyard barbeque. While most hamburger buns could be filled with so much junk such as high fructose corn syrup and preservatives, our friends at Rudi’s produce hamburger buns that are dairy-free, non-GMO, and has 1 gram of whole grains. The taste of these delectable buns are heavenly you won’t forget ever again the next time you have a summer get together. Go to rudisbakery.com and explore the difference you may find a coupon to save on your next purchase.

Julie's Classic Vanilla Ice Cream

4. Julie’s Organic Classic Vanilla Ice Cream

Right in the middle of summer, we all scream for ice cream, but not all ice cream is produced the same way. Most brands add various fillers and artificial flavors that I wouldn’t necessarily call ice cream in the end. Try Julie’s organic vanilla ice cream made with high-quality ingredients without soy lecithin. Experience nothing but the best delightful rich, creamy ice cream.

5. Dakota Organic Grass-Fed Beef

The most superior grass-fed beef on the market. The taste is sinfully delightful, and I always have a peace of mind knowing the livestock was treated, and it just doesn’t get any better than that. Other brands may feed their herd of cows with grains and other necessary food items, but at Dakota grass-fed cattle starts and finishes on grass. So if you are looking for authentic organic grass-fed beef, Dakota is your brand. No doubt about it, you will taste the difference.

6. Applegate’s The Great Organic Uncured Beef Hotdog

Not all wieners are clean, so I recommend trying the great organic uncured beef hotdog by Applegate. The taste is so much better than the nation’s leading brand, and you don’t have to worry about nitrates they don’t exist in this dog. Grab a bun, grill, and enjoy this hot dog all summer long that is indeed premium.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.[/bigletter]

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…

But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

Whole Foods Market Halts GMO Labeling Promise

Whole Foods Market Halts GMO Labeling Promise

Five years ago, Whole Foods Market announced they would require brands to inform consumers of the presence of GMOs by mandatory labeling on food packaging. Unfortunately, the health-food chain has put the mandatory GMO labeling program deadline of September 2018 on pause. I am hoping they will keep their promise because as consumers it’s our right to know what ingredients and practices used that are producing foods we all consume on a daily basis.

I’m hoping the health-conscious grocer will stand its ground and don’t let the government come in and try to change things. We have come way to far to turn back the clock. I am not sure to the degree how operations at Whole Foods Market have changed since the grocer was purchase by tech giant Amazon, but one thing for sure if WFM doesn’t make the right decisions for the conscious consumer things could go into the wrong direction with our food industry quickly. Consumers will start to seek other health food grocers that are upholding their promise of food transparency.
