Peppers Newsletter February 16, 2021

Good morning!  Say, you know who had a good morning on today's date in 1923? English archaeologist Howard Carter had a very good morning then because it's when he discovered the final resting place of the teenaged Egyptian King Tutankhamen. after five years of unsuccessful attempts to locate it. After 3000 years, the solid gold casket of King Tut, who lived around 1400 B.C. was discovered in the last of four chambers unearthed that day in Thebes, Egypt. Thousands of other artifacts and relics such as golden shrines, jewellery, a chariot, weapons and clothing were found, but it was ther perfectly preserved mummy of King Tut, the first that had ever been discovered, that was the most valuable find. Today, the permanent home of the “Treasures of Tutankhamen" exhibit is the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

Here's hoping that everyone stayed safe and sound throughout this weekend's stormy days and that your Valentine's Day and Family Day long weekend was otherwise thoroughly enjoyable! We have some beaty items to tell you about this week so let's get started!

Fresh juices are chock-a-block full of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, especially if they've been created using cold pressing. That's when intense pressure is used to squeeze the living daylights out of the fruit, as opposed to using spinning metal blades to chop and extract which creates heat and introduces air (causing oxidation and thus, reduces vitamins and enzymes). So if you're looking for some excellent, locally made (Vancouver) cold pressed juices, look no further than our own Produce Department! Chaser's 100%  Cold Pressed Juices (500 ml) has grown from a small stand in Yaletown to one of Vancouver's largest producers of fresh juices! And with varieties such as Alkaline Me, Supremely Kale, Cold K, Taking Car of Business, Beet Rejuvination, Turmeric Sunrise and Tropical Greens it's easy to see why! We also have an assortment of 1L bottles of their Apple Cider, Cranberry Cider, Lemonades and other kinds!

Ever since Bubly Sparkling Water made its way onto the scene it's helped to explode the popularity of flavoured sparkling waters containing no sugars or calories (it doesn't hurt that crooner Michael Bublé endorses the product). As if the selection of flavours wasn't already extensive (blackberry, cherry, orange, strawberry, grapefruit, to name but a few) now they've added new Pineapple as well as Peach flavours! Enjoy some flavours of summertime right now and fend off the February blahs!

Stubborn Chef is the Victoria BC business responsible for bringing you their incredible Ginger Sauce as well as numerous other captivating culinary creations! Another new item in our Produce Department is Stubborn Chef Spicy Pickled Daikon, the mild, Japanese radish high in potassium and vitamin C. It's been said that steaming hot white rice with pickled daikon is like the bread and butter of Japanese food. Give it a shot and see for yourself!

If you need a little somethin' somethin' to spice up your Asian cooking a bit more then try A Taste of Thai Roasted Red Chili Paste, "a concentrated blend of red chilies and Thai spices, combined for a spicy flavour. Use as a stir-fry seasoning, a soup base, or as a condiment for noodles or chicken. Add a teaspoon to your favourite marinades for a bit of spiciness."

Avalon Dairy has been a local tradition since 1906. It says so right on the product. And with their new Triple Cream Honey Yogurt, they're helping to ensure that they stay in business for over another 100 years! This yogurt is 100% natural and probiotic. It's a balkan style yogurt and it's keto friendly while the 9% milk fat content makes for a rich and creamy treat! 

If you want the absolute ultimate rich and creamy treat, though, you're going to have to head over to the other side of the store to the frozen food section. There you will discover two of the greatest frozen ice cream bars EVER created, especially if you're a fan of chocolate (and a lot of you are!). Magnum Infinity Chocolate is a combination of dark chocolate ice cream with a chocolate swirl dipped in dark chocolate and cocoa bean nibs. The Belgian unsweetened chocolate is out of this world so, as Buzz Lightyear would say, "To infinity and beyond!" You can also choose new Magnum Mini Dark, the vanilla ice cream bars dipped in dark, unsweetened Belgian chocolate. They're smaller (you get 4x55 ml bars so you'll feel better about eating one because they're smaller but you'll only end up eating them all because they're just like potato chips and impossible to stop with just one).

Breakfast just got a little bit better because Kellogg's has introduced Vector Maple Crunch, the high-protein breakfast cereal with 11 vitamins and minerals sweetened with natural maple syrup. Tastes great in a bowl with milk or eaten as a snack all on its own!

But if a high-protein snack for busy folks is required then Rock Coast Vegan Protein Bars in Mint Chocolate (16g protein) or Peanut Butter Chocolate (17g protein) are the perfect choice. They're made with seven high quality organic plant-based proteins, without any artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours. They contain no pea protein, no sugar alcohols and no isomalto-oligosaccharidea (common sweetener used in protein bars). Plus they're gluten-free!

Thanks for tuning in again this week! Stay warm and dry out there and always remember to take good care!
