Huel Hot & Savory World’s First Nutritionally Complete/Instant Curry Meals

Huel Hot & Savory: World’s First Nutritionally Complete/Instant Curry Meals

Sometimes it can get quite challenging to eat a well-balanced and nutritional meal. The supplement industry is booming for that very reason. We rely on vitamins and supplements to fill in the nutrition we’re missing from our meals. While it helps, it’s much better, to begin with already nutritionally complete meals. This is where Huel’s Hot & Savory range comes in. Huel is the best-selling complete nutrition brand in the world and is famous for its on-the-go powder food. We’re sure they’re astronaut-approved. In September 2020, Huel launched the industry-first complete hot & savory instant meals. They recently added America’s favorite take-out foods options bringing their vegan, hot, and savory complete food offerings to six.

Huel Hot & Savory World’s First Nutritionally CompleteInstant Curry Meals

Imagine a quick and healthier spin on some of your favorite takeout meals right at home. You can with the latest additions to the Huel Hot & Savory instant-meal line-up. They are nutritionally complete vegan meals packed with rice, quinoa, vegetables, herbs, and spices. These innovative instant-meals offer the world’s first nutritionally complete curry in two delicious flavors and a healthy take on a Chinese classic. The three new flavors join Huel’s Mexican Chili, Tomato & Herb, and Thai Green Curry.

What we love about them. You can enjoy the wonderful flavors of Yellow Coconut Curry, Spicy Indian Curry, and Sweet and Sour in under five minutes. All of Huel’s plant-based, instant meals have the right amount of carbs, fats, protein, fiber, and all 27 essential vitamins & minerals you need. They contain no lactose or any animal products, no soy, and no GMO.

Yellow Coconut Curry

Huel Yellow Coconut Curry Instant Meal

This irresistible blend boats creamy coconut, delicate spices, sweet sultanas, and cooling cilantro. If you love curry flavors but not a big spicy food fan, then you will love the Yellow Coconut Curry.

Spicy Indian Curry

Huel Hot & Savory World’s First Nutritionally Complete/Instant Curry Meals

If you love spicy food, then the Huel Spicy Indian Curry is a must. It is Huel’s hottest flavor yet and is packed with tomato, sweet potato, and a scorching spice blend.

Sweet and Sour

Huel Sweet and Sour Instant Meal

A mouthwatering mix of sweet pineapple, zesty peppers, spices, and zingy scallions you will thoroughly enjoy.

Two of our favorite things about these meals, first, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy them. In fact, we’ve been alternating between adding shrimp, beef, chicken, or no animal protein at all to our lunches and dinners; second, they are perfect if you’re sick of cooking. After a year of cooking and cleaning up, we welcomed the quick prep time and getting to our meal faster. The amount of cooking time we have saved is incredible; not to mention the money we’re saving on groceries and takeout.

If you have cooking fatigue, you will welcome Huel’s advantage of spending less time in the kitchen.

Three Hermits Shots - Vitality and Immune Boosting Drinks

Three Hermits Shots – Vitality and Immune Boosting Drinks

As we prepare to start double masking, thanks to the advice of Dr. Fauci, we’re also continuing to look for ways to continuously boost our immune system. Our health has never been more important so wellness products are a high priority for us and we hope for you too. We will be highlighting several more health and wellness products, healthy habits, and supplements in the coming weeks, all of which we will be trying ourselves. Today we highlight Three Hermits Shots, three vitality, and immune-boosting drinks.

Three Hermits Shots - Vitality and Immune Boosting Drinks

The plant-based Three Hermits shots are non-GMO, vegan, soy, and dairy-free. They have no added sugar and are made locally in New Jersey. They are available in three flavors: Cinnamon + Fenugreek, Moringa + Ashwagandha, and Turmeric + Nirgundi. Each shot contains a full serving of a key ingredient and its Ayurvedic counterpart, making the drinks more effective. The ingredients used to produce them are time-tested and hand-picked. If you’re worried that you’re not getting enough vitamins, these wellness shots fulfill 100% of your daily multivitamin needs. One bottle a day is all you need to reap the rewards of these beneficial ingredients. If you’ve ever enjoyed a green smoothie or green juice, then you’ll enjoy these Three Hermits wellness shots. Let’s get to know these better:

Three Hermits Shots - Vitality and Immune Boosting Drinks

Moringa + Ashwagandha: Supports immunity, decreases inflammation and stress, and improves sleep. Every part of the Moringa tree can be used for its various healing properties. It’s been called the “miracle tree” for its miraculous healing properties. Moringa has been used for centuries in the Ayurvedic and Unani systems of traditional medicine. Ashwagandha or “Indian ginseng” (which you will be hearing about more and more) is known as the “strength of the stallion” because it has traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system after illness. Ashwagandha is especially great as a stress reliever

Tumeric + Nirgundi: Supports immunity, decreases inflammation, aids in muscle recovery, and helps support an active lifestyle. Curcumin is what makes turmeric a “functional food,” and the most powerful aspect of curcumin is its ability to control inflammation. This makes this shot wonderful for boosting your immunity. Nirgundi is a common ingredient in various healing sciences. It is an analgesic and is also anti-inflammatory. It is effective in treating headaches, venereal diseases such as syphilis, rheumatism, sprains, fever, cough, urinary problems, and various other ailments.

Cinnamon + Fenugreek: Helps stabilize blood sugar and aids with weight management. Cinnamon is known to help lower blood sugar levels, boost insulin sensitivity, and slow down the emptying of the stomach to reduce sharp blood sugar rises after a meal. Itis a great antioxidant that also helps stabilize your HDL. It can also reduce total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels as well. Fenugreek slows the absorption of sugars in the stomach and stimulates insulin. In traditional Chinese medicine, the spice is known as a “phlegm mover” and is said to break up stuck energies and cool inflammation within the body. This wellness shot is perfect for expelling the bad out of your body.

We hope you consider adding the Three Hermits shots to your daily wellness regiment. As the Covid19 virus continues to mutate, a strong immune system is essential to recovery and survival. A box of 12 of the 2.50z bottles usually goes for $42.00, but Three Hermits currently has an amazing sale where you can get 12 for only $12.00; essentially making it $1 per bottle. Get all three varieties now on www.threehermits.com.

Marble Distilling Co: Drink Sustainably with these Spirits with a Conscience

Marble Distilling Co: Drink Sustainably with these Spirits with a Conscience

It’s almost Inauguration Day and we’re in such a celebratory mood. In two days, we’ll have a new administration who promises to really be for the people. As we watch the virtual swearing-in ceremony, we’ll be raising a glass to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. Since we’ll be enjoying a new Administration with an actual conscience, we thought we’d celebrate with a spirits brand with a conscience too – Marble Distilling Co.

Marble Distilling Co: Drink Sustainably with these Spirits with a Conscience

Marble Distilling Co. is an award-winning grain-to-glass to ground distillery located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Their “Drink Sustainably” philosophy is born from their passion to be gentle with the Earth’s natural resources and a duty to do their part to save the planet. Marble Distilling Co. returns all spent grains to the farms where they were grown, recycles 100% of their process water, and recapturing all of the energy from their stills. Marble has committed to being net-zero by 2022. They are at zero waste and use 1/100″ of the water a normal distillery utilizes. Their new addition of a 35kw solar array is getting them close to net-zero electricity. This makes them the most sustainable distillery on the planet!

Marble Distilling Co. produces two spirits brands, the small-batch Marble range consisting of Original Vodka, Moonlight Expresso Vodka, Moonlight Expresso Reserve, Gingercello, and Gingercello Reserve; the second brand, Hoover’s Revenge, features Hoover’s Revenge Whiskey, Hoover’s Revenge Ragged Mountain Rye Whiskey, and Hoover’s Revenge Single Barrel Bourbon. Their Original Marble Vodka is made from locally grown soft white wheat and malted barley, which imparts a smooth and creamy texture. The 80 proof, non-GMO vodka is 5X distilled in a copper pot still to ensure purity and clarity. It is then filtered over crushed Yule (limestone) Marble for a hint of minerality and finish; then the vodka is filtered on coconut husk for a luxurious, viscous finish.

We had the pleasure of getting better acquainted with some of Marble Distilling Co.’s offerings and we’re delighted with this multiple award-winning distilling company. We find ourselves completely obsessed with the Gingercello (a non-traditional take on the Italian classic).

Marble Distilling Co: Drink Sustainably with these Spirits with a Conscience

A contemporary cello adaptation, the gluten-free and non-GMO Gingercello liqueur is pot distilled with fresh ginger and rested on 200 hand-zested lemons and more ginger for several weeks. It combines fresh cut ginger and the sweetest part of the lemon zest creates a refreshing taste. Lightly sweetened, it is citrusy and bright with a ginger forward spiciness (the Gingercello Reserve is aged for a minimum of 1 yr in whiskey casks). the 70 proof liqueur is quite lovely on its own. We mostly enjoyed it on the rocks to fully enjoy what makes this such a distinct spirit, but the Gingercello is also extremely versatile as a modifier in craft cocktails. A Gingercello version of a Bourbon tea cocktail is absolutely divine (just switch out the limoncello for Marble’s Gingercello and you’re in cocktail heaven).

Moonlight Expresso Small-Batch Vodka

Coffee lovers will love the small-batch-from-scratch, coffee-flavored vodka. Made from a family recipe using all-natural ingredients, Moonlight EXpresso is made by distilling vodka, locally roasted Guatemalan coffee, and Ugandan vanilla beans. The result is a rich, dark coffee profile with a smokey, chocolate finish. Combined with a cold brew made in-house, this luxurious coffee liqueur is perfect for fabulous cocktail creations or stand-alone in hot or cold libations. The Moonlight EXpresso Reserve is aged in ex-rye whiskey casks for a minimum of 1 yr.

Marble Distilling Co: Drink Sustainably with these Spirits with a Conscience

The Hoover’s Revenge range is Marble Distilling Co.’s first foray into putting several single casks together, which yielded their Silver Label Whiskey. Each single 53-gallon American Oak cask is hand-selected and tasted for the flavor profiles it brings to this “marriage.” This whiskey is aged a minimum of two years, bottled at 84 proof with bottles numbered and signed by Connie Baker, Co-Founder and Head Distiller. The copper-colored whiskey is a marriage of three whiskies made by Marble Distilling Co: Bourbon, Rye, and Triticale. It features notes of hay, pear, and allspice; its taste is light in body with a floral sweetness with a hint of vanilla. It boasts a long finish with black peppercorn and clove spice that spikes at the end.

Marble's Distillery Doubles

One of our favorite things that Marble Distilling Co. offers during the pandemic is their Marble’s Distillery Doubles. A rotating selection of craft cocktails, such as their house Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Barrel-Aged Negroni, and more. Each Distillery Double makes two cocktails, all you have to do is just add ice. These cocktails are always made sustainably and with all-natural, local ingredients. Unfortunately, you have to live in Denver to enjoy their Distillery Doubles but you can still purchase their spirits online at www.shopmarblespirits.com with free shipping on 3 or more bottles.

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

Guilt-Free Snacking: You’ll Love These Good-For-You Snacks

We’re avid snackers. Try as we may to reduce the number of snacks we eat, there’s just no winning the war. Luckily, we’re slowly winning the battle by switching to healthy snacks; all thanks to the fact that they are all freaking delicious and we can enjoy some guilt-free snacking. The guilt and shame we felt ravaging a bag of potato chips, cookies, or a pint of ice cream are dissipating quickly because we’re enjoying healthier options that taste just as good.

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

Thanks to guilt-free snacking on things like the protein and fiber dense options from Nature’s Path; the wholesome and flavorful handmade crackers from Top Seedz; the protein-packed beef jerky from Old Trapper; and the savory, toasted crackers from Mary’s Gone Crackers. The wonderful thing about these snacks is not only are they beneficial to your wellbeing, they will help you snack better. We have absolutely noticed a change in our snacking habits.

NATURE’S PATH

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

Granola is a terrific way to give your body the healthy sustenance it needs while keeping the bd away. If regular granola is good for you, Superfood granolas are incredibly beneficial to the body. We discovered this when we were introduced to the Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified granolas, cereals, oatmeal, waffles, and more from Nature’s Path. We had the opportunity to treat ourselves to the Golden Turmeric Superfood Granola, their newest flavor Smoothie Bowl Superfood Granola, and their Golden Turmeric Superfood Oatmeal. Hands down, our absolute favorite (although the other two were enjoyed almost as enthusiastically) was the Golden Turmeric Superfood Granola.

This addictive power snack features invigorating turmeric granola with crunchy cashews and powerhouse ingredients turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper, which are known to support anti-inflammatory and blood sugar balancing functions of the body. If you’ve ever had a real Golden Milk then you know that the addition of black pepper magnifies the effects and benefits of Turmeric. Add in its delicious taste and you can’t go wrong. Other reasons we love this are it’s sweetened with low GI coconut sugar (only 5g sugar per 30g serving);  is baked with coconut and avocado oil; and it’s snackable clusters with a delicious, cookie-like melt in your mouth texture. We wanted to see how it would taste with milk but not one cluster made it near a bowl. It was straight from the bag to our waiting mouth.

TOP SEEDZ CRACKERS

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

As of today, with two full containers devoured, we find ourselves addicted to the Kosher certified, vegan, and gluten-free crackers. We have not yet been able to get to the point of putting anything on these delicious, crunchy seed crackers. Available in four flavors, these Top Seedz crackers are so delicious, we’ve been enjoying guilt-free snacking directly out of the package. We will try to resist the urge to gorge on the next flavor of these without topping it with Top Seedz’s recommended toppings. Speaking of, see them below:

  1. 6 Seed Crackers: The newest addition, the 6 Seed Crackers are vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free and also include chia and hemp seeds. Pairs well with: Goat cheese and a bit of tapenade; almond butter and golden raisins; hummus
  2. Sea Salt Crackers: The most versatile of the bunch, the Sea Salt Crackers can be your everyday cracker substitute. Pairs well with: Swiss cheese and a slice of dried salami; sliced apples or bananas with your favorite nut butter; smoked salmon with a touch of cream cheese and a sprig of dill.
  3. Rosemary Crackers: With a hint of rosemary, these take your charcuterie board to the next level. Pairs well with: Honey drizzled over baked brie with prosciutto; sliced fig and ricotta; sliced peaches, pears, or plums.
  4. Cumin Crackers: Move from the ordinary with the Latin flavor of the Cumin Crackers. Pairs well with: Black bean dip or a plain hummus; avocado smash and alfalfa sprouts; smoked salmon with fig compote.

The best part, those with nut allergies can fully indulge in guilt-free snacking as these are made with seeds, not nuts. Why seeds you ask? Seeds are known for their specific taste, texture, and nutritional benefits, such as protein, fiber, and iron. They’re also known for a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. They’re a great source of energy, they aid in digestion, increase muscle mass, enhance brain activity, and so much more. For those who love everything DIY,  Top Seedz has the first-ever bake-at-home cracker kit! Now you can now make your own Top Seedz crackers at home. Indulge in as little or as much of the seed varieties as you want.

OLD TRAPPER BEEF JERKY

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

If you’re familiar with our adventures, you know we’re not vegan. So we’re taking a brief break from the vegan offerings to highlight the only meat option in this snack feature. While we do enjoy several vegan foods and snacks, we are full carnivores. Naturally, any snack list we share will have our main source of protein, meat; in this case, beef jerky. Sometimes nothing beats the delicious taste of a good cut of beef. For the times when you crave meat protein but don’t want to partake in a full burger, or steak meal, old-fashioned lean pieces of beef jerky will sate your appetite. Old Trapper makes beef jerky the way it was meant to be.

The ingredients behind the company’s 50 years of success are as short as its actual ingredient list: lean high-quality meat, quality seasonings, real wood-fired smoke, and a hands-on manufacturing process. Couple that with an affordable price point and you see why Old Trapper has outlasted the competition.

Old Trapper offers a variety of lean high-quality jerky, including Old Fashioned, Peppered, Hot & Spicy, and Teriyaki flavors. Their last product launch was their quarter-pound bag of jerky, which goes against the current industry trend of giving LESS product in the same size bag. If you’ve purchased any bag of potato chips in the last 2-3 years, you know what we mean. Old Trapper offers delicious ways to give your body the protein it needs. What we loved most, aside from taste, was it wasn’t overall dry and the flavors were perfect.

MARY’S GONE CRACKERS

Guilt-Free Snacking: It's Okay to Overindulge on These Healthy Snacks

Mary’s Gone Crackers proves that healthy snacks need never lack in flavor! Focused on impeccable quality and taste, Mary’s products speak for themselves with their delectable, unique texture, and flavor profiles which can only be accomplished by carefully baking whole, organic ingredients to toasted perfection. Crafted with whole ingredients such as brown rice, quinoa, flax, and sesame seeds, each cracker is the perfect pairing of toasty flavor and crunchy goodness. All of Mary’s snacks are certified organic, gluten-free, allergen-friendly, and vegan to fuel active, health-conscious, and epicurean lifestyles with delicious and nutritious snacks. They recently launched 3 new real thin flavorsOlive Oil + Cracked Black Pepper, Chipotle, and Tomato + Basil.

we’d love to hear which of these guilt-free snacking options you’d love to indulge in most.

CBD Tea from Good Company Tea

#NowPouring, A Traveling Tea Experience with Good Company Tea

When the temperature gets really low, or it’s a day ending in Y, there’s nothing more we love than a good cuppa. For non-tea drinkers, we’re talking about a cup of tea. A nice cuppa is not only good for you, but it can also change your mood. We had the pleasure of getting to know a new premium, organic CBD tea brand, Good Company Tea, made with the highest quality, full-spectrum CBD extracts. Now, you may be wondering, do edibles stay in your system and how long does it last, but really that depends on how much you consume. We love enjoying a relaxing cup of tea to reacquaint ourselves with the benefits of our own well-being and so should you.

It’s incredible to see how the cannabis industry is evolving; years ago, the only way to consume CBD was through smoking the marijuana plant. Nowadays, the two most common cannabinoids, CBD and THC, can be consumed in many innovative ways. Some people prefer to consume THC through vaping and thc pods to achieve a high without damage to their lungs through smoking, whilst others are consuming either cannabinoid or both mixed together, in drinks. This CBD tea idea is the perfect idea for those who want to reap the medicinal impact of CBD while enjoying a hot beverage.

CBD Tea from Good Company Tea

Good Company Tea was built with the intention of creating moments of respite in fast-paced, hyper-productive work environments, and reminding us to slow down and reserve time for insightful connection with ourselves and others. Their fair-trade teas are cultivated in the most revered regions across the globe. They only use organic ingredients, with gluten-free blends that are infused with premium CBD. They are non-GMO, and triple lab-tested to ensure each batch is free of pesticides, microbial impurities, and foreign materials. You’re left with a matchless experience in every cup. If you’re wondering what companies create the best CBD products within the medical marijuana industry as of right now, perhaps take a look into CBD company reviews by reading webpages such as https://kamadevayoga.com/best-cbd-oil-companies/ or others. There is a whole host of companies out there who are trying to take advantage of the surge of interest in CBD and it’s health benefits, so there is ample choice. The problem with this is that, due to the popularity of CBD products, you are bound to have knock-offs or copycats versions that aren’t very good for you. This is why it is important to research these companies. If you are in the UK, the Machester Evening News reviews lots of different brands and decides the best CBD oil available, so it should be useful. You never know, you may find a new CBD company that can work better for you than your current CBD derivatives.

CBD Tea from Good Company Tea

Good Company Tea launched with three tea blends: Organic Japanese Sencha, Organic Oolong, and Organic Jasmine. Each tea bag contains 15mg CBD per Sachet, with 5 Sachets per box, all THC Free (Non-Psychoactive). The CBD wellness company was co-founded by former Google marketing executive Thanh Nguyen (pictured below), and former pharmaceutical regulatory executive Khanh Nguyen.

Good Company CBD Tea

The Organic Japanese Sencha (No 1 ? CBD Blend) is bright, earthy, and uplifting. Perfect for enjoying during the daytime, this light-bodied blend features tropical aromas and a warm, buttery finish. It is both stimulating and stress-relieving and is produced in the revered region of Shizuoka Prefecture; their organic Japanese sencha is cultivated in nutrient-rich volcanic soil. It’s combined with pineapple, papaya, and osmanthus flower for an uplifting blend.

Fans of oolong will love Good Company Tea’s Organic Oolong (No 2 ? CBD Blend), a warm, fragrant, and soothing blend. This full-bodied blend boasts honeyed overtones and a round, savory finish. This is the perfect tea for those who need to feel relaxed and revitalized during the daytime. The oolong is cultivated in the Wuyi Mountains in the northern Fujian province of China; known as the premier site of oolong production, and its place of origin, this organic oolong is developed through a considered process that honors the legacy of its source.

Last, but not least, is the Organic Jasmine (No 3 ? CBD Blend), a luminous, floral, and calming blend. This medium-bodied blend features balancing heady floral aromas and a serene feel. The ultimate relaxation tea, this tranquil and transcendent blend is ideal for bedtime. The main ingredient is harvested in Vietnam’s Central Highlands in the perpetually cool climate of Dalat; renowned for its jasmine tea production, this organic jasmine tea features a subtly complex profile and transcendent aroma that celebrate its origin.

Are you ready to relearn how to unwind, pay more attention to your well-being? A cuppa or two of Good Company Tea is a great place to start.

Zatik Naturals Organic Extracts: Here’s to Health and Wellness in 2019

It takes a lot to commit to a healthier lifestyle. Most people don’t get past the three-month marker on their New Year resolutions. Reasons may be time, financial, or just life getting in the way as it tends to. But you can take small steps to a better health and wellness lifestyle in the new year. If you don’t have the time or the budget to go to the gym or buy organic foods, there are steps to a healthier lifestyle. Essential oils and extracts have taken over the wellness and beauty industries in 2018 and there’s no stopping in it in 2019. When we were younger, it was mandatory to take health aids such as castor oil, turmeric, etc, every morning. We thought we’d revisit that old ritual with these organic extracts from Zatik Naturals. We’ve been trying out Zatik Naturals Black Seed Supercritical Liquid and Turmeric Supercritical Liquid; keep reading to get acquainted with both of these wellness wonders below:

Black Seed Supercritical Liquid, 1.0 oz – $24.00 and 6.76 oz – $39.00

A golden-hued, premium quality, cold-pressed Black Cumin Seed oil (or svartkumminolja) that is highly anti-inflammatory, certified organic, and is created with supercritical CO2 extraction method. (Note: Zatik Naturals uses CO2 extraction to efficiently produce high quality, ultra-concentrated extracts.) We started using this 2 1/2 weeks ago. It’s still a bit early to ascertain benefits (they usually say give anything you try a minimum of 4 weeks to see results), but we do notice a reduction of how many migraines we’ve had. We also find we’re waking up feeling more refreshed and energized (and we’re not morning people).

Turmeric Supercritical Liquid, 1.0 oz, $26.00

Turmeric Supercritical liquid

Turmeric is highly prized for its high nutrient content and its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. The market is currently inundated with Turmeric based products. What makes Zatik Naturals’ Turmeric Supercritical liquid stand out from the rest? Its supercritical form and the fact that is blended with black seed oil. We’re 2 weeks into using this and we have seen a decrease in our migraines. We know with longer use, the benefits to our bodies will increase and we can’t wait to see the other positive ways our bodies react.

All Zatik Naturals ingredients are vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy free, alcohol-free, ph balanced, biodegradable, and certified organic. Every product is made in small, limited batches and also rated clean on the EWG Skin DEEP database.

If you’re looking to jumpstart your wellness journey or just kick it into overdrive, you should definitely get to know these wonderful Zatik Naturals organic extracts.
