Spring Table Decorations

Posted on

Spring is undoubtedly the brightest time of year – a time to celebrate colors and all things fresh! If you’re planning a party during the spring months, we have a few floral ideas for decorating your tables to suit the season.

  1. Daffodils
    A sure sign that spring has arrived! Daffodils can be purchased inexpensively at local grocery stores for the next few months, making them not only a great table decoration for parties, but a beautiful bouquet for your home.

  1. Tulips
    These spring-blooming perennials grow from bulbs, ready to enjoy in March and April. By themselves in a vase, or paired with floating candles, tulips make breathtaking table decorations.

  1. Citrus
    Believe it or not, you can decorate a table using lemons and limes. With a bit of creativity, these stunning citruses will brighten up any table. Check out Pinterest for some inspiration.

  1. Bunting
    Not strictly a table decoration, bunting are a series of small triangular flags, used to decorate for a festive event. Etsy has some cute examples.

The Skinny on Diet Soda

Posted on

Diet sodas were once touted as a healthier alternative to full-calorie soda, but the more we know about diet soda, the better. The fake sweeteners found in this beverage may suit your calorie count, but they’re a chemical time bomb waiting to explode.

  1. Diet sodas still ruin your teeth
    Sugar isn’t the only cavity causing culprit. The acid in diet soda breaks down your teeth’s enamel, causing decay.

  1. A diet soda habit increases your risk of Type 2 Diabetes
    Artificially sweetened drinks can alter the processes of your digestive tract, causing blood glucose to rise. Check out this article here for more information.

  1. Frequent consumption of diet sodas are linked with depression
    Diet soda won’t give you depression, but this article published in Huffington Post outlines the legitimate link between the two.

  1. … They might actually make you gain weight!
    The chemical sweetener’s effect on your gut bacteria may be to blame. Check out this article in Time Magazine for more details.

Snack Right

Posted on

Snacks have taken a bad wrap in the past, being viewed as a departure from regular healthy eating. Modern snacking trends have gone back to basics, with most people reaching for natural snacks when 4PM strikes. Here are a few snack trends we’ve seen this year:

  1. High Protein
    These snacks don’t mess around – protein bars, jerky, nut butter, cheese and seeds are all densely nutritious bites for serious snacking.

  1. Low Carb
    Matching the high protein trend, is a need for snacks that are low on carbs. Olives, celery with cream cheese, or low fat string cheese really hit the spot.

  1. Calorie Controlled
    Certain brands of snack food produce portion controlled packs of their product, clearly labeled with the amount of calories per pack.

  1. Fewer Ingredients
    Clean eating is about consuming food that is natural. With fewer, pronounceable ingredients, people feel more comfortable about reaching for these snacks.
