Hey, Check This Out! October 2017

Seventh Generation Botanical Disinfectant Spray

Germophobes, rejoice! Seventh Generation has just come out with a no-rinse-required botanical disinfectant made from essential oils. Powered by compressed air, this spray kills 99.9 % of bacteria and viruses with the active ingredient Thymol, which is a component of Thyme Oil. It’s non-flammable, works on all hard, non-porous surfaces, and comes in three really nice scents—Eucalyptus, Spearmint, & Thyme, Lavender, Vanilla, & Thyme, and Fresh Citrus & Thyme. So spritz and spray and kiss your household germs goodbye!

Jack’s Quality Organic Beans

No cans. No BPA. Just great organic, non-GMO, low sodium beans. Michigan-based Jack’s Quality saw an opportunity to make their mark on a more sustainable future by filling a need for an alternative, eco-friendly packaging option in the canned vegetable aisle. And Jack’s carton packaging—made mostly of paper—results in beans with a clean, bright flavor. A win-win for all. With the cool fall weather finally here, we’re pulling out recipes for Italian Vegetable Stew and Black Bean Soup and Greens & Beans.

So, ditch the can opener. Just squeeze, tear, and start cooking! You’ll find Jack’s Black, Cannellini, and Kidney Beans in Aisle 2.

Big Tree Coconut Nectar

Have you heard of Coconut Nectar? It’s a low glycemic, natural sweetener collected from the coconut stem blossom. Raw coconut nectar has lots of nutrients—it’s high in potassium, zinc, magnesium, and iron, and contains B vitamins and vitamin C.

Big Tree Coconut Nectar is a great swap for honey, maple syrup, agave, or cane sugar. But how does it taste, you ask? Pretty darn good! Coconut nectar tastes like a mixture of molasses and maple syrup. 🙂
