London, England, UK, October 2016—Global market research company Euromonitor International recently presented new research at a London press briefing, ‘No Sugar Please: How Snacks are Being Redefined’.

According to the presentation, growth of healthy snacks rose by 7 percent in 2014-2015 compared to ‘conventional’ snacks, which only increased by 5 percent. “The growth in healthy snacks was driven by Western Europe and North America, when combined, increased by $10.8 billion (in U.S. dollars) from 2011 to 2016. These numbers further identified an emerging trend that could transform the food industry,” says Jack Skelly, food analyst at Euromonitor International.

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.

San Diego, California, August 2016— Hold the top sirloin, the fried chicken and the BBQ. An analysis by one of the world’s largest providers of shelf-stable seafood has suggested that residents of a number of non-coastal cities known for their traditional meat-eating ways may actually prefer salmon.

The internal analysis, conducted by Chicken of the Sea in honor of the second annual National Salmon Day on October 8, has named 10 markets as the “Top Salmon Cities” in the United States. Local residents in these markets eat more fresh and shelf-stable salmon per person than their counterparts in other U.S. cities. As a result, they also have the potential to eat more salmon or are more likely to try new salmon products, prepare salmon recipes or serve this super seafood.

Stamford, Connecticut, July 2016—Westin Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Inc., recently declared the ‘death’ of Happy Hour as it was once known.

Today’s time-deprived travelers are combining business and fitness, in an effort to keep their well-being routine while on the road; and increasingly, they have chosen to catch-up with colleagues on running trails, rather than over cocktails. Earlier this summer, the chain helped kick off National Running Day, with participating Westin hotels nationwide hosting 5K runs during Happy Hour (4-7pm local time), bringing together guests, associates and local businesses to network while working out.

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.

Everywhere USA, July 2016—Why did Ringling Brothers stop using elephants in its circus performances?

After years of criticism from animal rights activists, Feld Entertainment, the parent company of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, announced in 2015 that it would phase out the use of endangered Asian elephants in its circus performances within three years. Then, less than a year later, the company expedited the process and began retiring the last 11 of their pachyderms earlier this summer.
