Fall is rolling in, no better time for a seasonal *healthy’ish* re-boot for your pantry, fridge & freezer! Heather Smith, Food + Beverage Trends Expert with theHAUTEbar.com.
For the pantry:
A SuperSnack Swap with brain benefits! Brainiac Foods makes snacks — bars and fruit pouches — that contain a unique blend of brain super nutrients including Omega‑3s and Choline. As kids are in school / have homework, and us adults are working in front of screens SO LONG — these nutrients are critical for learning, focus, attention, even mood!
For the fridge:
This is THE time of year to stock up on immune boosting nutrients — like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc. Heather’s go to beverages are Uncle Matt’s Organic Ultimate Immune Juices. They start with an orange juice and elevate it with the antioxidant black elderberry (that is the purple color here!) and 300% daily dose Vitamin C, 50% vitamin D, 25% Zinc. Their Ultimate Defense Orange Juice has ingredients like whole root turmeric, ginger and pineapple.
