Product Review: Copper Mug for Moscow Mule

I don’t really know if this is true, but according to Ayurveda, water stored in a copper vessel has the ability to balance all the three doshas in your body, (vata, kapha and pitta) and it does so by positively charging the water. It is true however that, copper holds the temperature of the drink for a longer period of time. So, if you put your smoothie in there, you can be sure that it’ll stay cold longer than it would if you put it into a regular glass. Today, I will be reviewing a cute copper mug by PureCopper.

My Thoughts

The copper mug came nicely boxed and inside, it was wrapped in an onion skin paper and plastic to make sure it will not be scratched during shipping. Along with it are some drink recipes that I have not tried, yet. The mug looks really nice and I can say the it was delicately crafted. It is shining and very light, yet it looks strong and durable enough to last a long time.

I have been drinking my cold water from it and sometimes I use it with my smoothies. The drinks stay cold longer, which is perfect in these hot summer days. This mug is really cool and I would recommend this to anyone.

7 Essentials for Your Commercial Kitchen

Whether you’re opening your first restaurant or just renovating your existing one, you’ll need a good list of supplies to make sure you have everything you need. Here are just seven must-haves for the commercial kitchen.

1. Freezers

Not all freezers are created equally. For example, if your restaurant is a busy one, you’ll want to indulge in walk-in freezers to accommodate all of your raw food. If you own a small cafe, however, you might only need a number of deep freezers.

2. Hospitality Carts

Carts are absolutely essential for getting ingredients from one area of the kitchen to another. They can also be used for the transfer of everything from dirty dishes to full-course meals. Make sure you’ve supplied your staff with a variety of carts before you unleash them on the kitchen.

3. Toasters

Toasters can mean the difference between a delayed dish and a plate going out on time. If you’re serious about providing speedy and delicious meals to your clientele, be sure you stock up on toasters.

4. Dishwashers

Not every restaurant has them, but if you’re serving a large volume of customers every night, it’s a good investment to make. It will also save you labor costs when you don’t have to hire employees or divert other members of your staff to dishwashing duty.

5. Ice Makers

This is something that not every restaurant owner thinks to buy, but they can really come in handy when the dining room is packed and you don’t have time to freeze ice cubes the old-fashioned way. Check out sites like Mission Restaurant Supply to learn more.

6. Sinks

Commercials sinks aren’t like regular sinks. They’re built to accommodate multiple people at once, and they often come with special or heavy-duty drainage systems that won’t falter at the amount of food, drink or other debris that get tossed into its depths.

7. Work Tables

Last but certainly not least, you’ll need a wide variety of work tables to serve as platforms for your meal prep. Most restaurants opt for stainless steel tables, but you can also buy wooden or even titanium ones.

These are just a few things you’ll want to have on hand before you open your doors to the public. There are many more, of course, but these should be enough to get you started on your journey of good food and excellent customer service.

Eating Healthy This Summer

As the good weather arrives, you know that you and your family will be on the go. You’ll be making the rounds to barbecues and parties. It’s time to hit the beach and go on picnics. When you’re at home, it will be too hot to cook anything involved. Don’t sacrifice wise, healthy choices for convenience. You can prepare and make sure everyone eats well over the summer. You’ll look good and feel even better when you pay attention to what you eat.

Hit the Produce Aisle
You need plenty of fresh produce in your diet. You should be getting five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. You’ll find the best selections during the warm months. Don’t pass up your chance to have a variety of types of produce at the ready in your refrigerator. Always have a bowl of fruit out on the counter that is easy for your family to grab for a snack. Prepare baggies or containers of fresh vegetables to give everyone another option. When it’s available, your family will eat the right kind of food.

Bring a Healthy Dish to the Party
When you are invited to a gathering, be sure to bring something that is good for you as an offering. You can still sample other foods at the party, but remember to use moderation. Include your dish, drink plenty of water, and avoid loading too much food on your plate. Try small samples of each food you would like to try and only take one trip to the food table. You will be happy when you set limits for yourself.

Think Outside the Box for Dessert
Dessert does not have to add up to an overload of calories. Think about alternatives that taste great and are good for you at the same time. Fresh fruit with low fat whip cream is always a hit. Smoothies are another refreshing option. You can also go with frozen yogurt. Turn to Gelato Products when you are looking for frozen yogurt supplies, especially when you are planning a large gathering at your home. Make sure you offer plenty of cold drinks to keep everyone cool. When you have a broad selection of sweet treats that are healthy, you’ll leave your guests satisfied. Everyone will head home with a smile on their face and good memories of all the great food that made your gathering complete.

Product Review: Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set

I seldom use plastic when it comes to storing food. With all the articles I read about the harmful effects of plastic containers, I get really scared. Then, I was invited to review the green earth storage container set by Ozeri. I agreed because the containers are freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe.

Product Description

* Instant vacuum freshness without pumps, motors or confusing parts. Simply press down on the lid and air is forced out via the one-way valve
* Patented valve removes excess air to reduce naturally occurring bacteria. It also releases pressure to prevent spills and splatters in microwaves
* The wave pattern on the bottom of each container keeps cut fruit and vegetables elevated from water and juices
* The handy date dial allows you to record when the food was first stored and monitor days kept in the refrigerator
* Bpa-free, stain-resistant, shatterproof, and as transparent as glass. Freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe. Satisfaction guaranteed.

My Thoughts

These aren’t the ordinary plastic containers you usually see in the stores with press on lids. The lids have air locks on the top and flaps on each side. The flaps will ensure the lids will stay in place, while the air lock serves as a vacuum seal, to ensure the food won’t spoil easily and keep food fresh longer.

I like that you can use it to heat food in the microwave without splatters. The oven can get messy if you heat the food without covering the container. The green earth containers have valves to prevent the food from bursting while inside the oven.

If you will notice, there are numbers on the dial. You can use these numbers to mark the date you placed the food in the container, allowing you to keep track how long it’s been there.

Overall, these containers are amazing. They are BPA free, shatter and stain resistant, and they will not only keep your food from bacteria, but make them last longer as well. If you are looking for a food storage that is of high quality, these containers from Ozeri are worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Ozeri INSTAVAC Green Earth Food Storage Container Set through the Moderna website and on Amazon.
