La Farge, Wisconsin, December 2016—Organic Valley has declared an end to 60-year “War on Butter.”

Organic Valley, a farmer-owned cooperative of more than 1,800 organic family farms, is launching a holiday campaign that defends one of America’s favorite foes of the post-WWII era: delicious, creamy butter. The co-op has an advertising arsenal that includes a video featuring its own farmer-owners, and a live-streaming website where they will be sculpting the faces of our nation’s “War on Butter Heroes” in real time out of Organic Valley’s organic, pasture-raised butter.

Glendale, California, October 2016—Ghosts and goblins notwithstanding, there is nothing like candy to hold together (and make even more fun) a special event like Halloween. And Nestlé’s Butterfinger line is making its play to ensure everyone has a shot at the new goodness they’ve come up with.

They are introducing a devilishly delicious treat this fall with called Peanut Butter Cups Molded Skulls, a #BolderThanBoo addition to the candy aisle this Halloween season. Now hitting store shelves for the first time, the BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cups Skulls take on the terror-ific new molded skull shape, with a “crispety, crunchety” burst of bold peanut buttery flavor and smooth milk chocolate coating. (Note: “crispety” and “crunchety” may not be actual English words, but in this case, they’ll do nicely.)

Everywhere There are Women, October 2016—When you’re planning for a fun get-together with friends, everything goes through your mind, from your wardrobe to jewelry and make-up.

What many of us don’t plan for, however, is our meals.  Eating the wrong foods before an event can sabotage your beauty plan. Certain foods can give your gut an instant bloat that looks and feels awful. However, there is a solution to this dilemma. Instead of skipping dinner to squeeze into your little black dress, or grabbing bagels for a quick morning bite, there are ways to get around this tight spot (if you’ll excuse the pun,) by incorporating a belly bloat buster or two.

The Coming of Sustainable Restaurants

Most Everywhere, September 2016—When most of us frequent a restaurant, we aren’t worried about what might happen to the chicken bones left on our plates, or better yet, how that gourmet chicken was raised. We don’t ask ourselves if the chicken we just consumed was treated humanely or if fields were cleared to grow feed for it to grow. We don’t wonder how much fuel was burned transporting it from farm to restaurant.

And those running the restaurant don’t usually offer this information without prodding (few do, to be fair). But with the birth of sustainable restaurants, all that may soon change.

There’s Water and There’s Water

Scottsdale, Arizona, September 2016—Most of those interested and involved in the enrichment afforded them from adopting a healthy lifestyle realize that hydration is a key ingredient in that equation. But when considering all the bottled waters available in today’s marketplace, two problems emerge: They’re either too expensive, contain bells and whistles that cannot be substantiated, or adopt a marketing approach based in part on the importance of pH levels.

Cost is a no-brainer, but the bells & whistles concern is another matter. The Alkaline Water Company (AWC), was, if we understood their pitch correctly, brought into being the importance not only of hydration, but of drinking water that has a ‘balanced’ pH. Their product is called Alkaline88—a lifestyle creation that reportedly delivers a refreshing and economical way to achieve maximum hydration while maintaining and benefitting from a balanced pH.

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, August 2016—The word “artisanal” essentially describes
a person who can do something with great skill and ability. But it seems to be used primarily these days to describe those special breads, the demand for which has grown immensely in just the past few years.

The family-owned Ozery Bakery up in Canada has gone a step further in this nutritious process—by combining their passion for making and selling their artisanal baked goods with a need for nourishing minds—especially when it comes to the arts.
