Colorado Mountain Jam Organic Fruit Spread

Crave the fruity sweetness of jam but want to avoid high fructose corn syrup and empty calories? Colorado Mountain Organic Gourmet jams and jellies are as nutritious and healthy for you as they are delicious and pleasurable to eat. Unlike most mass-production jam companies, Colorado Mountain Jam grows their own apricots, peaches, and plums in their Palisade, Colorado organic orchards. Because the fruit has been allowed to sun ripen on the trees to develop its full flavor naturally, the jams need minimal added sweetener. They contain one of the lowest, if not the lowest, amounts of calories and carbohydrates of any jam on the market and offer nutritional value—vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron.

Flavors include apple pie, apricot, apricot jalapeno, blueberry, cherry, crabapple, ginger peach, ginger pear, grape, peach, peach jalapeno, pear, plum, rhubarb, spiced peach, spiced plum, strawberry, strawberry rhubarb, and tomato marmalade. Culinary uses are limited only to your imagination, and the jars are elegant enough for gift giving.

Nip n' Tang Fruited Horseradish for the Holidays

Looking for an intriguing new flavor to add to holiday favorites? Try Nip n' Tang Fruited Horseradish for both bold flavor and healthful benefits.

Nip n' Tang is a unique, all-natural, gluten-free condiment that can be used as a dip, glaze, fondue, spread, mix, and more. Because it is made from horseradish, it also boasts the health-promoting/healing properties associated with the root:

  • Helpful in treating rheumatic and respiratory disorders

  • A good source of vitamin C and B complex, nutritive minerals (potassium, calcium, iron), and natural antibiotics.

  • Horseradish contains glucosinolates which increase resistance to cancer, have powerful antioxidant properties, can be used to reduce thyroid function, and help relieve aching joints.

  • Glucosinolates also act as natural antibiotics against different types of infections by increasing blood flow in the infected area and removing the waste products.

  • Due to its antibiotic properties, horseradish can help cure urinary tract infections and kill bacteria in the throat that cause bronchitis, coughs and related problems.

  • Horseradish can release sinus infections by dissolving the mucus in the nose.

  • Horseradish may also improve diabetes, mild circulatory problems, water retention, and digestion.


Nip n' Tang is available in 5 interesting flavors that'll add "WOW" to your holiday table:

Apricot Nip ‘N Tang® Fruited Horseradish: One of the sweeter flavors, use as a glaze for shrimp and chicken, a marinade for chicken and as a glaze and finishing sauce for salmon.
Blueberry Nip ‘N Tang® Fruited Horseradish: One of more intense flavors, the manufacturer suggests this on breakfast foods, on toast and pancakes; instead of jelly on peanut butter sandwiches; and for something different and sassy, use a dab on vanilla ice cream instead of a traditional dessert sauce.
Cranberry Nip ‘N Tang® Fruited Horseradish: Try this on a turkey sandwich instead of your usual spread or at the table instead of cranberry sauce.
Pineapple Nip ‘N Tang® Fruited Horseradish: Great paired with cheeses.
Pomegranate Plum Nip ‘N Tang® Fruited Horseradish: More plum than pom, this is the most “candied” of flavors, and the one to use on ice cream or sorbet. If you like duck sauce and sweet and sour Chinese dishes, this may be the one for you. Try it with beef, chicken, duck and lamb—and as a dip for fried wontons.

Cool Off with Healthy Beverages

The heat of summer has everyone thirsty for cold drinks to help cool off and stay hydrated. The trouble is that too many people forget that what you drink is just as important as what you eat. Although it may seem like a good idea to grab a sugary soda or fruit-flavored drink, these liquids don't really hydrate the body and their sugar content provides nothing but empty, useless calories.

Children are a particularly difficult crowd to please when it comes to drinks, but Wellbaskets.com has some healthy beverages that are tasty enough to lure them away from their unhealthful favorites.

If you or your child are soda lovers, it's time to make the Switch to something healthier. The Switch is a 100% carbonated juice beverage that has all the appeal of soda, but no added sugar and a host of vitamins and minerals because it's made with real fruit juice.

Hooked on fruit punch or other flavored sugar water? Try Vruit fruit and vegetable juice for a no sugar added, potassium-rich drink that provides 100% daily values of vitamins A and C. Each juice box counts as a serving from the fruit/vegetable group!

Everyone knows how important it is to drink water. In fact, there's nothing better to hydrate the body than plain, simple water. If unflavored water doesn't appeal to you, don't reach for a bottle of water sweetened with sugar or artificial sweeteners, try Hint, premium drinking water with just a hint of natural flavorings. This water is extremely refreshing and has absolutely no sweetener of any kind. It's a zero-calorie thirst quencher that makes it easy to keep yourself cool all summer long.
