If you’re looking for a healthier bread alternative give these a try. They are high in fiber and very dense; the texture is very different from regular sandwich breads, a bit of a toast on them makes the texture much better. I personally love them for an open face sandwich. Slather on some hummus, cucumber and a Kalamata olive and you have a wonderful meatless meal. Pile on some corned beef, sauerkraut and a grainy mustard and you have a hearty and healthy reuben. This is an old European staple ready for discovery for a healthy, nutrient dense diet. Oh! And cut them into squares for delicious canapes!
IMPORTANT! The Gluten Free Breads are NOT ORGANIC. The Rye/Oat and Multi Grain are NOT WHEAT FREE.

I LOVE this drink!  The Mastiqua flavor is one of those that people either really like or don’t like.  Sometimes it takes a minute to kick in to appreciate it.  It is very sparkly and has a herbalish flavor to it.  My first impression was a dirty martini without the gin. And speaking of gin….it makes a wonderful, not sweet mixer too.  Add a squeeze of lime or slice of cucumber to make a cool refreshing beverage any time day or night.  It is my two-year-old granddaughters favorite “bubble water”.

Not only is it delicious, it has a wonderful story behind it and is healthy!  Hippocrates used it as a digestive aid back in his time. In Greece it is served with coffee to ease the acid that so many of us battle when enjoying a cup of coffee. The Mastik trees grow on the island of Chios and produce a resin called Mastiha.  Herbal infused waters are one of the biggest trend right now as people look for healthier alternatives to sugary and fruity drinks.

Mastiqua comes in a beautiful glass bottle with a screw top.  I reuse the bottles for my homemade kombucha or as a water bottle.  Mastiqua is new to the market and may be a bit difficult to find. Purchase it here from my Amazon store.

Have you heard about all the fraudulent practices and questionable quality standards in the olive oil industry?

Come to find out, not all olive oils are created equal. Read my blog post here http://www.freshlookfoods.com/olive-oil/ if you’d like the lowdown on what’s happening. These EVOOs (Extra Virgin Olive Oils) are reasonably priced and of exceptional taste and quality.  The oils are from the Koroneiki olive,region-specific, unblended, 100% traceable, no preservatives, high polyphenol*.  The BOLD EVOO is from Lakonia and has a peppery taste. This olive oil can be traced to within one acre of the tree it grew on all the way to the bottle.  My only problem with this product is that the cap can be defective – it doesn’t stay on and will pop off the plastic pour insert.  Other than that, I love this for cooking. It isn’t overpowering and give just the nicest essence of olive oil to your dishes.  The DELICATE & ORGANIC are my go-to olive oils for dressings and to drizzle as a finishing oil.  They both are from the Messenia Region. The DELICATE has a smooth, buttery delicate flavor and the ORGANIC has herbal and grassy undertones. The Oregano Infused is DEE LICIOUS! I use it wherever I can. The Bold EVOO is infused with Organic wild-picked oregano.

This is the REAL STUFF.  Availability is limited right now, check out the website for locations. PURCHASE NOW HERE ……..
