Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter August 14, 2018

Pepper's Newsletter August 14, 2018

Good morning!  Sunday was the annual Cadboro Bay Festival at Gyro Park, and despite the cooler temperatures, the day was massively successful! We had world class sand sculptors, live music, bouncy castles, hands-on activities, food vendors and face painting! Hundreds of people turned out for some great family fun times and it was amazing to see such lively community spirit! Thanks one and all to everyone who contributed to the event and for those who participated!

This week we have (mostly) breakfast items that are new to our shelves. Now I don't know about you but I don't have a lot of time in the morning to make breakfast. But I also need something more satisfying than a regular old bowl of cereal. Quaker Overnight Oats are just the ticket!  Available in Walnut, Raisin & Honey as well as Toasted Coconut & Almond flavours all you do is add milk the night before, put in the fridge and come morning time, you end up with a delicious, healthy and hearty breakfast! What could be easier than that? Steep. Sleep. Eat.

Or if you have the time in the morning, perhaps you'd prefer good, old-fashioned pancakes? If so then maybe Anita's Organic Mill Pancake & Waffle Mix fits the bill. In addition to the High-Fibre variety that we already carry, you can now choose from Multigrain or Ancient Grain mixes! This company was founded over 20 years ago in Chilliwack, BC, and offers "premium flours, cereals and mixes for a new generation of makers and bakers." Canadian certified organic, non-GMO, and of course, 100% free of pesticides and hebicides. Visit www.anitasorganic.com for delicious variations including muffins!

You're going to need something to wash down that breakfast with so it might as well be Minute Maid Heart Wise Orange Juice! Heart wise? YES! You see, this delicious orange juice contains plant sterols which is a proven agent for lowering LDL Cholesterol. That's the so-called "bad' cholesterol that collects on the sides of your arteries like bacon fat down the kitchen sink drain. This is the ONLY juice clinically proven to help lower cholesterol. And it also contains vitamins B, B6 and B12. Raise a glass and lower your cholesterol!

Ok let's switch gears for a minute and showcase a few new items from our Health & Beauty department. We have a bunch of exciting new items from Island Essentials, a Vancouver Island company specializing in producing home cleaning and personal care products that are all natural,  environmentally safe, not tested on animals and contain no harsh artificial chemicals.

First off is Island Essentials Castile Soap available in Natural, Lavender and forThave's Chai.

Castile Soap is made from vegetable oils and contains no animal fats whatsoever. You may not be familiar with it but you should definitely consider adding this to your arsenal of cleaning products because of its super versatility. You can clean your body AND your house with it!  And you can do so effectively. In fact, there are far too many uses for this soap to list so here's a website that you can check out that will answer all of your castile questions:

We also have a whole new line of Island Essentials Natural Bar Soaps that are sure to be a hit in the bath or shower. Make sure not to use on an empty stomach or you might be tempted to take a bite. They smell that good! 

And if you're looking for a new type of body cream to try, Island Essentials Natural Hand & Body Cream may very well be your next favourite! These luxuriously rich creams are highly absorbent and moisturize with their non-greasy formulae. Nurture through nature with these hand-crafted emollients!

Almost forgot to mention that this weekend from 11 am until 5 pm on both Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19th, Island Farms will be in-store offering free ice cream samples! It's summertime and the livin' is easy! Get down here for some delicious frozen goodness!

As always, we look forward to seeing your smiling faces in the aisles! Have a great week!
