re you ready to start the New Year right? That might be as easy as a wholesome breakfast, especially since what you eat in the morning can impact your entire day. Starting out with a nutritious meal fuels your body and mind, and helps to stabilize your blood sugar levels, increasing your energy naturally for hours. Barbara’s High Fiber Medley's are a case in point.This innovative breakfast array is no mere cereal. Rather, it’s a symphony of tasty whole grain goodness that fills you and your kids up deliciously to launch an A+ day. When it comes to a healthy morning menu, nutrient-dense, high fiber choices make the grade, especially when they’re also quick and easy. Busy school days may not allow for elaborate morning entrées, but that doesn’t mean you or your kids have to get short changed on the most important meal of the day! Even a light breakfast serves to kick your metabolism into gear, helping you burn calories more efficiently. That’s a major benefit for people who tend to overindulge during the holidays, and want to get back to fighting weight as soon as possible. A nourishing morning meal puts you on track to make better choices all day. In fact, research suggests that individuals who eat breakfast regularly tend to have a more nutritious diet overall. This is especially important for kids, who are developing eating habits for life. Not only do refined,
sugar-based morning foods promote childhood obesity, they also fail to provide children with the fuel and important nutrients they need to operate at peak levels throughout the day, both academically and socially. Did you know that people of all ages who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to have greater concentration, better problemsolving skills, and more effective hand-eye coordination? Barbara’s High Fiber Cereals are nature’s ultimate recipe for a smart, fiber-rich breakfast offering a sweet blend of multigrain, crunchy goodness. Packed with irresistibly nutty whole grain flakes and satiating bran, each variety has its own unique blend of antioxidant-rich ingredients. Enjoy Barbara’s Original, Cranberry and Flax & Granola Medleys. Or try all three, there’s a favorite for every member of your family. Some cereal lovers prefer to combine them all when they serve up the morning meal. Add some sliced banana or fresh berries if you like! Want more good news? Barbara’s High Fiber Medley covers over 50% of your daily fiber needs! Most Americans don’t get enough fiber in their diets, which may impair proper digestive function. The recommended intake is between 20 and 38 grams of total fiber per day, depending on your age and gender, with 25 grams being a realistic goal for most people. Unfortunately, the average American consumes a mere 14 grams—and many eat even less. Not only are Barbara’s High Fiber Medley whole grain cereals a yummy way to meet your daily fiber quota, they’re also low in fat, sugar, and sodium, Kosher, vegetarian and cholesterol-free. Great breakfast, great day! Visit www.barbarasbakery.com

hen you combine busy lives with winter chills, wellness can suffer. Can we outsmart the flu and other preventable ailments this time around? The key is fighting symptoms before they escalate. Between proactive steps like frequent hand-washing and taking a multi-vitamin, and waiting until you’re “sick enough” to address symptoms with heavier medications, there’s Oscillo®. Oscillococcinum®, a.k.a. Oscillo, is a homeopathic medicine that has been clinically shown to reduce the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo doesn’t interact with other medications, herbs or supplements, nor is it contraindicated with pre-existing conditions. That’s why doctors and pharmacists recommend it in more than 50 countries around the world! Not only does Oscillo work naturally with your body, it’s safe whether you’re 2 or 102! Best of all, it works. A recent study in a British scientific journal found that when patients took Oscillo within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms, nearly 63% showed “clear improvement” or “complete resolution” within 48 hours. In France, where Oscillo has been used successfully for over 65 years, it’s the best-selling over-the-counter product in the cough/cold/flu category. Oscillo should be taken at the first sign of symptoms: fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Its sweet-tasting pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue, so no pill swallowing or chewing is required. Oscillo is widely available in drug stores, supermarkets, health food stores, and mass merchandisers in the cough, cold and flu section. Yes to wellness!

re you familiar with the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World? From the Hanging Gardens of Babylon to the Pyramids of Giza, to the Temple of Artemis, these amazing creations have enriched our lives immeasurably. Like these global treasures, the 7 ancient grains also have a long and venerable history, nourishing cultures around the world since early human evolution. And we continue to benefit from them today. Crunchmaster® makes it easy by combining all 7 ancient grains into a perfectly irresistible cracker. It is believed that rice was first cultivated over 6,500 years ago. Sorghum and millet have been important staples in the semi-arid tropics of Asia and Africa for centuries. Quinoa and amaranth, originating from South America, are complete proteins—which means that they contain all of the 8 essential amino acids our bodies can’t make on their own. Flax, thought to originate from ancient Egypt, is rich in valuable Omega 3 fatty acids. And among edible oil plants, sesame contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants. That’s a lot of collective nutrition in one delectable cracker! Delicious straight from the package, they also make the ideal base for your favorite gourmet spreads and toppings, or beautifully accompany your favorite dips. Ancient wisdom, powerful nutrition.

Zevia provides all of the enjoyment of the classic sodas you grew up with, but none of the sugar or artificial ingredients.

It’s a delicious alternative to both sweetened and diet sodas that your entire family will enjoy. Zevia was made by soda loving people for soda loving people because it’s time to feel good about what you drink.
