The annual holiday to express your love has some rather fascinating (and convoluted) roots.  Imagine for a moment you’re in ancient Rome.  As February 14th approaches, young Roman women would write their names down on a piece of paper.  As the village celebrated Juno, the Queen of the Roman Gods, and Goddess of Women and Marriage, young men would randomly draw a woman’s name.  The two would be paired for the duration of the celebration.  The next day brought the feast of Lupercalia, which is also the “fertility festival.”  Wow!  Talk about love at first sight!  So where does St.

It’s not easy to find a little sunshine right now.  In fact, it’s been pretty impossible.  But just because the sun is being more than elusive, we have a couple of good-for-you treats that will perk up the winter doldrums.  Let’s start with Klarbrunn Sparkling Water.  A sweet and bubbly way to refresh.  If plain old tap water just isn’t your thing, give Klarbrunn Sparkling Water a try.  No sweeteners, no calories, and no sodium.  Just super-pure water from underground aquifers deep inside the earth.  You can get a free 12-pack this week with a $20 grocery purchase.  But don’t stop there.  W

Some places have sales just to get items out of the store.  When we put a special price on something, it’s because we know it’s at its peak of freshness, and when you bring them all together, you get a great meal!  This is the time of year for heartier veggies like yams and brussel sprouts.  This week is a great week to visit Fresh Madison Market and start building some meal prep boxes.  See how easy it is with this great idea  that gets high marks at Tasty: One Pan Chicken Veggie Meal Prep

Something as simple, and modest as an egg, is almost overflowing with nutrients, protein, and energy.  Eggs are full of antioxidants that have been shown to improve the health of your eyes and reduce the chances for macular degeneration and cataracts.  Eggs are loaded with great proteins, lots of iron, vitamins A, B12, B2 and B5.  They have nutrients that are good brain food, and they can even help you lose weight!  Eggs are filling and tests have shown that just 8 weeks of substituting eggs for carb-high things like bagels and cereal resulted in 65% greater weight loss.  People across Amer

When a store like ours has the word “fresh” in the name, it’s pretty crucial that we go over every product to make sure that our promise to always be fresh is never compromised.  Open Acres is one of the brands we never question about freshness.  When it comes to salsa, you’re going to have a hard time getting something better than Open Acres Salsa.  It’s made with fresh, simple ingredients all combined to make what could be the most perfect salsa.  Fresh is the big word here.  Just one funky tomato can wreck a great salsa.  But don’t take our word for it.  A big 16 ounce container of Open

It’s a dish that dates back to the Aztecs.  Everyone you talk to has their own unique take on it, and to be honest, it’s a recipe that’s pretty fool-proof.  But to serve up a guacamole dip that will make your guests eyebrows jump and start the party talking…we thought we’d snoop on the recipe master chef Wolfgang Puck uses.  Garlic and jalapeno are the extra twist that makes this one special!  Here’s what you’ll need: 3 medium, fully ripe avocados 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 1/3 cup freshly chopped cilantro 1 medium shallot, minced

You’re watching the game with a brew in your hand.  You know what’s happening?  Your hand is making your beer warm…and nobody want’s that!  That’s where Thermos comes in.  The company you trusted years ago to keep your soup warm in your lunchbox…is coming to rescue you from warm beer (or pop, or anything else you might want to keep cool).  The can koozie has grown up from a flimsy foam pad to modern technology.  The Thermos Stainless Steel Can Koozie holds a 12 ounce can, and (more importantly) holds in the cold.  You can put a cold can in there at 10am, and it will still be cold at 8pm!  T

If you’re an attorney who happens to love ice cream, but you also happen to have some hypoglycemic diet restrictions, do you give up ice cream?  Absolutely not!  You get in your kitchen and start making it yourself!  That’s the story of Justin Woolverton just eight short years ago.  To get his ice cream fix, he made it himself.  Soon, it became clear that Woolverton wasn’t the only one who loved the idea of having ice cream that didn’t involve blowing up your calorie count for the day.
