Hug a tree? Hug an avocado

I can’t wait to eat half an avocado. Then I can use a Food Hugger for the leftover half. Seriously, Food Huggers are the deal. The round silicon disks go over and grip your partially-eaten lemons, tomatoes, etc. Different sizes do the job and I plan to be using the biggest one for purple onions. You wouldn’t believe me if I told you why, but purple onion halves are always coming into my life.
The avocado food hugger is a work of art because it even has space for the pit. It’ s like sculpture that keeps your food fresh.
I love eating even more than I hate wasting food, so this is a win-win situation. You can also cover opened cans and jars with this, so go be a Food Hugger.

CoolBrew can get hot
Toasted almond, mocha, vanilla and other CoolBrew Coffee Concentrate flavors are designed for hot and cold enjoyment, but this summer I’m running cool with the New-Orleans based fresh coffee fast concept. CoolBrew comes in a plastic container you squeeze and a space on top fills with your flavor. It’s up to you how you want to go with the rest. Make it hot (like the logo’s wisps of smoke that form a fleur de lis) or enjoy it over ice. This season, the iced coffee is where it’s at for me. For more adventures, use the coffee to make a barbecue sauce or go traditional with a fizzy brunch punch of CoolBrew Coffee Concentrate, vanilla ice cream, sparkling water, simple syrup or sugar and a garnish of cinnamon, nutmeg or cocoa powder.
This stuff is very easy to use and very delicious. Store your containers in the fridge and you’re good to go.

Power Snacks
Does Coffee Cacao and Lemon Goldenberry do it for you as a power snack? Navitas Naturals introduces these two new flavors of “bite sized goodness” in a line that the gluten and dairy free and organic raw superfood crowd with love.
Beware: You may fall into the “it’s good for me and I’m willing to try new things” category or the group of those who head to the vending machine for junk food. I know some health seekers who will love these browning-looking bites, but I served them to a bunch who recognized “those grainy things.” Three tasters skipped these in favor of a bowl of sugary snacks. One wouldn’t even try.
Even people who straddle should be culinary thrill seekers in the quest for food that nourishes and helps you become the person you want to be. Navitas Naturals is a company that those folks want to be associate with. Makers say:
“In addition to the raw Cacao Powder that Navitas Naturals is renowned for, the Coffee-Cacao Power Snack features these organic superfoods: Maca, Chia, Camu, Cashews, Green Coffee Powder and Lucuma. The superfoods in this energizing mocha snack are combined with other wholesome organic raw foods including date paste, raw almonds, fig paste and sunflower seeds. Along with Goldenberries from Colombia, the tart and sweet Lemon-Goldenberry Power Snack contains Maca, Chia, Camu, Cashews and Hemp superfoods, combined with date paste, fig paste, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, dried cranberries and orange peel powder.”
