oSalt is the all natural, great tasting reduced sodium salt from Scotland, UK that can be found in natural food and grocery stores across the US. Containing 66% less sodium than regular, sea and rock salts, it has all the flavor of salt you love but fits in perfectly with a healthier lifestyle. But why should we be concerned about salt anyway? Throughout history, the story of salt and humans has been continually linked. In ancient times, it was a valuable commodity. Wars were fought over it, soldiers were paid in it and it was vital in the preservation of food. And these links have led to dependence, or even an addiction, to salt. We feel we need it to flavor our food and liberally sprinkle it on our meals, often with little thought to the potential risks of too much sodium chloride! Sodium chloride is the technical name for salt and it is the intake of the sodium part that has been strongly linked with increased blood pressure—a major concern with around one third of Americans having high blood pressure—and its association with cardiovascular disease and stroke. With Americans on average consuming 3,436mg of sodium a day—which is 150% more than the CDC’s (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) recommended daily allowance—there is a real need to find a solution which will give us the same great taste of salt we love, but at the same time allow us to significantly cut down on our salt intake.

5


LoSalt provides this solution. It contains only one third the sodium of regular, sea and rock salts, but can be used in exactly the same way—making it ideal for all your home cooking and as a seasoning on the table. What’s more, it is a natural product—a blend of two natural minerals, sodium chloride (33%) and potassium chloride (66%). Potassium is a natural mineral that our body needs to function properly, including helping your kidneys work more efficiently. Americans consume 2,790mg of it each day, which is only 60% of the CDC’s recommended daily allowance of 4,700mg. Using LoSalt is therefore a great way to help you top up your potassium intake. LoSalt is available in Original and Iodized variants and is Kosher (Parev/Passover) certified, Halal certified and gluten and allergen free—so it appeals widely. What about sea salt though many of you might say, isn’t that the healthy salt? Well actually no. Sea salt may have this reputation but in truth it is almost 100% sodium chloride, the same as table and rock salts. So sprinkling it on your favorite recipes has the same effect. And those extra minerals a sea salt brings that you hear so much about are in fact only traces of them, so they have negligible impact on your health. So when you are looking for a real solution to sodium reduction and maintaining a healthier blood pressure, try LoSalt. It not only tastes like regular salts but you can use it in the same way—if you use one teaspoon of regular salt, use one teaspoon of LoSalt instead. Find it in stores nationwide—either in the main spices aisle or the natural foods section.

y now we know that people in Mediterranean regions tend to live longer, healthier lives than many Americans, largely due to an active lifestyle, weight control, and a diet low in red meat, sugar, and saturated fat and high in vegetables, nuts, beans, legumes. One way we can emulate this enlightened eating lifestyle is to incorporate healthier snacks, especially baked snacks, not fried. Mediterranean Snacks® brings ancient diet wisdom to their innovative, tasty snacks. Their Lentil Crackers are baked with protein-rich lentils and other natural ingredients. They’re the only bean based non-GMO project verified, gluten-free certified cracker, offering 5 gr protein in a 14 piece-serving in four delicious varieties. Mediterranean Snacks Baked Lentil Chips® are also gluten-free certified, with a satiating 22 chips per fiber-rich serving, in 7 savory Mediterranean-inspired flavors. Each legume-based product has a sterling nutritional profile: naturally protein-rich, baked, trans-fat free, vegetarian, and calorically smart. From fiber, to protein, to great taste and sturdy crunch, few healthy chip alternatives match the nutritional benefits of these Mediterranean Snacks, which are certified through Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO), vegetarian, and most are non-GMO too! Their newest innovation, tapaz2go™, is a convenient, gluten-free certified, mini-meal solution combining a single serving of protein-packed Mediterranean Snacks Lentil Crackers with a generous portion of hummus, in three yummy flavors: Roasted Garlic, Red Pepper and Classic. With 250 calories or less per serving, 7 grams of protein, and portable convenience, these shelf stable nourishing snacks are the ultimate solution for busy, health-conscious people. Live Snactive!

o you know how much sugar you drink on a daily basis? Many Americans realize ice cream and donuts promote obesity, but they may not factor in what they sip throughout the day. Since sweetened drinks fill you out without filling you up, it’s easy for some people to remain unaware of how much they actually consume. Despite the obvious health hazards of sugar-laced beverages, a Gallup poll revealed that 48 percent of surveyed Americans—nearly half—drink them on a daily basis. What’s more, among those who do, the average daily intake is 2.6 glasses per day! Is this because many people don’t realize that deliciously healthy alternatives exist? Well, they do! Zevia is a team of soda-loving people with a passion for making smarter choices a little easier. They believe in better alternatives, both for the well-being of ourselves and our next generation. Sweet treats will always beckon, including beverages, and they’re ok periodically, but it makes sense to focus on fluids that hydrate, delight, and satisfy without compromising our wellness. It’s time for smarter choices. To that end, Zevia has created a compelling video called 12 Million Reasons for Smarter Choices: www.zevia.com/smarter-choices. If you’re new to these enlightened, stevia-sweetened sodas, prepare to be enchanted by both familiar and innovative new flavors including Cola, Lemon Lime Twist, Orange, Ginger Root Beer, Black Cherry, Ginger Ale, Cream Soda, Grapefruit Citrus, Caffeine Free Cola, Grape, Cherry Cola, Strawberry, Lime Cola and Mountain Zevia.

mmm, chocolate. The very word can lift our spirits. We’re sure you would agree that chocolate is one of the richest, most distinctive flavors in the world! Nonetheless, it can vary in quality, which is why many chocolate lovers seek out the finest organic options they can find. Some take it even further, like Craig Sams and his wife Josephine Fairley, who founded an organic chocolate company based on their first taste of a 70% dark chocolate sample bar made from 100% organic cocoa beans. They named their unique company Green & Black’s—Green for adherence to organic, Fairtrade principles and Black to symbolize the intense, decadent flavors of this premium chocolate. Launched in the UK in 1991, Green & Black’s entered the U.S. market in 2007 and it quickly became a hit. All Green & Black’s Organic Chocolates are both organic and Fairtrade certified. They source fine organic cocoa beans grown under the shade of indigenous rainforest trees, and all their products meet the organic standards set by the USDA. Green & Black’s helped pioneer organic, Fairtrade, supremely high-quality chocolate, and this integrity makes a scrumptious bar of natural, organic chocolate taste all the sweeter. Whether you’re in the mood for something distinctively spicy, sweet and decadent, or uniquely refined and balanced, there’s a Green & Black’s bar for your perfect chocolate moment.
