    Fun @FoodFete NY @SomersaultSnack @jonessodaco @earthboundfarm

    I went to Food Fete this week to preview healthy snacks and foods new on the market. It was delicious, well attended and really well organized.

    Do you know all the cool things you can make with California figs? Yum. They are an excellent source of fiber and they contain potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, manganese! Hard to match by any other fruit really.

    These Hemp Milks are sensational in smoothies and perfect for anyone who is lactose intolerant or want to rid diary in their diet

    You can put Hemp Hearts in your breakfast, yogurt or even smoothies (like i had this morning!)

    Lately, I have been nuts about Pecans and the way they taste in salads with strawberries and goat cheese.

    Somersaults are the new snack that are salty in just the right amount made of sunflower seeds. They taste so good and is a perfect pairing for tea, coffee or even beer.

    Jones Soda has a new drink! I’ts Jones Soda Au Naturel. Only 35 Calories. Amazing!

    Seems like someone at Earthbound Farms heard my prayers and pureed all the things I need for cooking and never end up using in a tube that lasts 3 months!

    Can’t wait til the next Food Fete in June!

    @ApplegateFarms – Yummy in my Tummy

    I got this package last week and it was from the people at Applegate. I am familiar with this brand because there are a ton of organic supermarkets in West Village.  I love me some hot dogs and breakfast sausage links and now I found a healthy, humane and junk-free brand. Yipee. I am always curious about brands and always read labels. This media Kit Applegate sent me tells me their story… Here is what it boils down to and that’s why I love them. Straight forward and delicious.

    I actually don’t have a preference or knowledge of deli meat. Applegate offers a wide selection of organic and natural deli meats – more than 25 choices – either pre-sliced/packaged or by the pound at the deli counter.  In addition to deli meat, Applegate offers pre-sliced and bulk all-natural cheese, organic and natural hot dogs, sausages and bacon and a variety of frozen meat products like chicken nuggets and beef and turkey burgers. Whether it’s from the deli case or the freezer section, all products are antibiotic-free with no artificial ingredients. I guess because now that I am familiar with Applegate, it will be my brand of choice.

    The kit came with a USB with all the company info, a coloring book and some coupons. I am surely gonna redeem them this week! 🙂
