    Super Easy No-Bake Treats You've Never Heard Of

    Super Easy No-Bake Treats You've Never Heard Of

    Over the last decade, no-bake treats and sweets have really begun to gain steam and notoriety. Perhaps it is because they are usually pretty easy to make and don't require much prep time, or maybe it is because you don't have to use an oven which can be a huge benefit on hot summer days. Then again, it could be something to do with the fact that these types of goodies can easily be build into a fun and creative activity with children. No matter what the reason may be for the surge in the no-bake phenomenon, it sure looks like it's here to stay. And as such, I thought I'd offer a few unique ideas that you likely have not heard of.

    Sourdough Simplicity

    In my kitchen, Elvira is starting to stretch herself, expand herself, push herself up against the confines of her jar and reach toward the lid settled lightly above her. A few hours ago I took her out of the fridge, added rye flour and water, gave her a gentle stir, and set her on my counter. Now, I peek under her lid to see how she’s getting on. Hey, Elvira, I say. Looks like we’re nearly good to go.

    Wave Soda

    Wave Soda

    Wave Soda boasts few ingredients, but the ones they use pack a punch. Before I read more about the flavors and beverage, I expected this one to be more like a natural soda (similar to Hansens), but it’s different, in a good way. For me, the definition of this drink sits between being a sparkling juice and being a soda. If I were to parallel it to another (excellent) brand on the market I’d say it’s closest to Spindrift. Sparkling juices don’t seem to have harnessed the right carbonation to juice ratio, and the fizz sparks a little more than the fruit juice does... sparkling juices haven’t been perfected yet. I’m willing to argue about this, but the facts (my opinions) remain. Across the board, in a universal sense, sparkling juices haven’t gotten the formula right. Soda has that perfect ratio, usually in part due to the devil ingredient high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup is probably one of the most controversial food ingredients, and concern about it has only increased over decades. While some soda brands (like Hansens and Wave) are proud not to use it, other beverage brands (like Snapple), sneakily put it in their beverages and include it under the tricky umbrella of “natural ingredients.” Though around 2013, Snapple claims to have removed high fructose corn syrup from its beverages, there’s no way to know for sure—because of that “natural ingredient” listing. I could talk about this more, and will in a later post, but for now I’ll stick to the matter at hand.

    Foods Celebrities Refuse to Eat

    There are certain foods that people don't like after tasting them. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they look. There are some foods people don't like because of the way they smell. Then there are some foods people refuse to eat because they were forced to eat so much of it when they were young. They vowed to never eat that food again when they grew up and left their childhood home. They said when they make their own money, they would eat what they wanted and not be forced to eat what they didn't like. Many of those people have kept the promise they made to themselves long ago and still refuse to eat certain foods today.

    Snacks for a Weak Wine

    Snacks for a Weak Wine

    Today we are going to tackle a tricky question of snacks for weak wine. Whether you are having a hen party, stag party, or you are a birthday girl or boy, you need a lot of beverages and, of course, snacks to go well with them with no messy clean up to worry about afterwards. Also, they are meant to need no fancy ingredients. So, our top priority is something store-bought or easily whipped up. Pairing food with drinks can be a lot of fun for your party and there are a lot of amazing snacks to serve with wine. First off, your snack should only be about 100-200 calories. Snacks aren’t meant to satisfy every wave of crave, or keep your company while lonely, or make you feel better about your most recent break-up. They are to keep your metabolism running, and hold you over until your next meal. Store-bought variants to gulp down are great in number: buffalo wings, chips, pizza, but all of them can tell sadly on your health. As we poison our body with wine, our snacks are expected to provide some health benefits! And here come chicken-based meals! A must have for people keeping fit or losing weight! So perfect texture, rich flavor, low calories and, not the least, a real bargain in a shop! It's absolutely everyone’s all time favorite, matches almost any beverage, and is quick to cook! Among my personal choices, I can advise stuffed chicken breast, grilled chicken breast recipes, and pan fried chicken breast. They are most likely to fight off your hunger without giving a feeling of overeating and at the same time enrich the flavor of the wine. And these are the easy skills to master! Weak wine is a natural match for chicken snacks, playing against the salty heat of the breast and the crunch of the skin!

    7 Benefits of Switching to Organic Food

    7 Benefits of Switching to Organic Food

    The question of whether organic food has any merit as a healthier alternative is a controversial one. The reason for this is because it should be healthier in theory, but you should be keenly aware of the fact that produce is defined as organic within certain parameters, and a willing grower of these groceries can find holes in these parameters in order to save money, and still retain the required stamp of approval. Still, the bottom line is that the organic variety truly is healthier most of the time, so it really ends up being a question of whether the quality corresponds fairly to the increase in pricing. In order to be certain about this conundrum, you should just take a look at seven benefits of switching to organic food.

    SAP! Review

    SAP! Review

    What do you know about Sap!? Before trying these drinks, I knew little to nothing about it. In my head, I always confused it with maple syrup. I’m aware that these two things are in fact, different, but I never had a reason to seek out any answers. I guess it was just one of those things I was comfortable in my confusion of. I knew it was sticky and came from trees. That’s as far as my knowledge went. So when I saw the Sap! variety pack of maple seltzer, maple soda and sparkling birch, I thought I could use this as a learning experience.

    Kin Euphorics Pear-Cinnamon Tea

    Kin Euphorics Pear-Cinnamon Tea

    Recently, I was thinking about alcohol. I don’t drink, and the main purpose of my beverage blog is to introduce products and recipes that are not alcohol-focused. I don’t enjoy drinking, because I don’t like the feeling of being hungover, and I don’t enjoy the post-drinking haze that sets into my brain. I feel foggy, uncoordinated and like every motion I make through the day is going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Alcohol effects different people in different ways, but I actively choose not to have it as part of my life. What other people do is none of my business, and I have no opinion on what other people choose to do with their bodies. That being said, I’ve noticed an influx of drinks lately that tout having relaxing effects. I’ve tried a couple of them (reviews to come later), and my overall experience with them is that they simply make me sleepy. Tired and relaxed are different feelings for me, and I like to keep them separate. I’d yet to discover a drink that made me feel effectively calm without loopy side effects where I felt too tired to even walk across the room in a straight line. I think those beverages have a time and place, but that feeling isn’t “relaxation” for me. If I wanted to feel like that, I could just take two melatonin and watch cartoons until I rolled over and passed out face-down in bed. I wanted to explore something different.
