brunches

We think that no weekend is complete without the enjoyment of a satisfying brunch. Lucky for us, Lonely Planet (www.lonelyplanet.com) has published a compilation of “The World’s Best Brunches: Where to Find them and How to Make Them”, with a foreward by Bill Granger and contributions from a global army of food writers.

Although Eggs Benedict are a staple in the United States, this combination travel guide and cookbook featuring 100 recipes from food writers across the globe invites you to consider shaking up your weekly brunch with such ethnic specialties as Matias Herring from Russia, a Smoked Halibut Open Sandwich from Greenland, or a hard boiled egg and eggplant sandwich native to Israel. If your passport is valid, you may be inspired to get on a plane to enjoy brunch in its native locale while the rest of us use this very imaginative cookbook to recreate international specialties in our own home kitchens.

Activz

Whole foods are the best way to enjoy nutrient-dense meals and now Activz ( http://www.activz.com) offers you an easy and convenient way to make any meal more nutritious using thier whole-food powders.

Especially in these busy times when individuals don’t always make the time to clean greens for a salad, slice and dice fresh berries or bake a sweet potato, Activz organic and non-GMO powders are simple and easy to add to juices and protein shakes to make them more delicous and nutritious. The Frosty Raspberry Lemonade recipe we tried from the Activz “The Simple Scoop” recipe book, using a packet of Activz raspberry powder, was very refreshing and quick to create, and a much better alternative than reaching for a can of sugary soft drink! Activz whole-food powders come in a wide range of fruits and vegetables, including Beet, Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, Spinach and Sweet Potato.

prosecco

If you are planning on entertaining guests at home this holiday season, Martini & Rossi Prosecco (http://www3.martini.com/us/products#product/martini-presecco)  is the perfect sparkling beverage to have on hand.

This libation offers the perfect blend of crispness and tart fruit flavor. It tastes great and is very refreshing served chilled in a champagne flute or when used as a mixer with other beverages, including gin, light rum or tonic water. Prosecco adds a festive touch to any brunch menu and is a worthy addition to your holiday beverage offerings.
