The Specialty Food Association's Annual Fancy Food Show in New York City is probably one of my favorite things to attend - I mean, where else can you indulge yourself with over 150,000 types of food related items over the span of three days?
Low Calorie Lovin'
In an ideal world, I would be able eat big bowls of pasta everyday and not gain weight. Living in a dream world right? WRONG! With Miracle Noodles, you can actually get the feel of eating spaghetti and rice without the calories!! Is this some sorta of Jedi mind warp? Nope - this low calorie, soy free, gluten free, vegan and non gmo, Kosher Shirataki noodle is made mostly with fiber which slows digestion and provides the sensation of fullness -but still gives you the sensation of eating your favorite pasta dish! A "Miracle" for weight loss/healthy living/cutting extraneous calories indeed!
The Mister is a long time Burt Bee's lip balm fan, but he recently discovered a product that will give Burt (or should I say Clorox...hmmm) a run for his money! Savannah Bee Company Beeswax Natural Lip Balm contains a quadruple threat of organic beeswax, additional softening honey, pure propolis, and nourishing royal jelly - all to keep the Mister's lips soft and smooth. Plus, these lip balms come in a variety of yummy foodie flavors - so you can start off with some Earl Grey in the morning, have some Peach for lunch and end with some Key Lime for dessert - hooray!
Bye Bye Bad Breath
In my Finance by Day job, nothing is worse than being stuck at a meetings with someone who has terrible breath - unfortunately this has happened many a times - and I am talking cringe-worthy type Dragon breath! Next time I'll be sure to pass the offenders a Sencha Naturals Green Tea mint. Made with Green Tea (a natural germ / bacteria killer), these tasty terror fighters come in a variety of pleasant flavors like ginger lemongrass and cinnamon. Plus, unlike some of the artificial breath fresheners out there, Sencha's mints are sweetened with natural coconut sugar and comes in a eco-friendly recyclable tube - good for the environment and good for your breath!
Livin' for Lobster
Now most people know I love me some lobster and would love to eat it all the time. However, lobster is not easily cooked/procured and can be a mess to prepare - until now! Hancock Gourmet Lobster Company's frozen ready to eat lobster entrees are the bee's knees when it comes to frozen meals - just a taste of the lobster risotto (made with REAL Maine Lobster) had me doing a little happy dance. And it is so easy to make - just pop it in the oven for a few minute and dinner is served. Hancock has a variety of lobster based dishes - from the risotto, to cakes to pot pies and more - they got all your lobster craving needs covered.
~*~*~*~*~So there you have it - a little bit of all-good everything, I'm signing off - until next year that is!
