Inside Pepper's

Pepper's Newsletter May 14, 2019

Pepper's Newsletter May 14, 2019

Good morning!  The majority of the world recognizes Mother's Day as the second Sunday of May but many countries do not. If you celebrated your mother, your grandmother, wife, aunt, daughter or the significant matriarchal women of your life this past weekend, we sincerely hope that you enjoyed the day honouring these special people! 

This week's newsletter contains an abundance of health and beauty and other items but before we get to that, we'd like to remind you of the upcoming Victoria Day Long Weekend store hours. It's business as usual on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so the only real change is on Monday, May 20th when we will be open from 7 am until 7:30 pm.

Just in time for the sunny weather we have new Maui Vera Organic After-Sun Moisturizer. With soothing organic aloe vera, peppermint and noni, you'll feel the healing touch of Hawaii with this special Hawaiian formula! It feels and smells fantastic on your skin but doesn't contain parabens, EDTA, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances. 

Another excellent option for healing and repairing dry or damaged skin is by using Realaloe Aloe Spray. It hydrates and rejuvenates skin, absorbs quckly and promotes elasticity! And it's unscented, containing pure, certified organic aloe vera juice.

If the winter took its toll on your facial skin or you've been burning the candle at both ends and it shows, then Burt's Bees has a Hydrating Sheet Mask with clary sage and a Rejuvenating Eye Mask with rosehip seed extract & jojoba oil to help reverse your Frankenstein-like appearance and make you feel good again! All you do is place on your face or under your eyes, wait five minutes and then remove. Massage any excess formula into your skin and voila, you're all done! No rinsing required!

Whether you're stressed, work overtime, consume too much caffeine or use your devices too much there's a decent chance that you aren't getting the sleep that you require every night. In fact, a StatsCan study found that insomnia increased by 42% from 2007-2015 among Canadian adults. And we've lost an average of one hour of sleep since 2005. This might explain why we are selling out of U-Dream Herbal Mixture. This is an all-natural sleep aid which can help with the quality and duration of your sleep. As with any supplement, make sure to read the cautions and warnings on the back of the package, or talk to your doctor, to make sure this product, and any of the others listed in this newsletter, is right for you.

There's nothing worse than getting a summer cold or flu, right? So if you feel either coming on, make sure to use Cold-Q Natural Oral Spray to help your immune system fight of cold and flu viral attacks! Brought to you by United Biopharmaceuticals Inc. of Richmond, BC, this is a 100% natural remedy free of pesticides and heavy metals (I would certainly hope so!). If you'd like to read more about this product, please visit their website www.coldq.com

Spatone Liquid Iron is another 100% natural iron supplement new to Pepper's. As per the box, iron is an essential mineral for carrying oxygen around your body and maintaining good health. It helps to reduce tiredness and fatique caused by iron deficiency anemia. The liquid formula is naturally occuring in water so it is readily and gently absorbed by your body and should cause fewer of the side effects associated with typical iron supplements. And each box contains 28 one-a-day sachets.

Alright, now let's get to the stuff you can eat! La Dee Da Gourmet Sauces are made in Ontario and are going to be your new fave sauces if eating vegan and gluten-free is a requirement. Even if they're not, you're still going to want to try these super versative sauces! First, there's Savoury Mushroom Basil Sauce, which, as the website states:  This vegan sauce is our "open and pour sauce". It can be used over pasta, chicken, pork, fish, vegan/vegetarian dishes, enjoyed over rice or quinoa or as your new favourite gluten free gravy! Dairy-free so you can add it to a crock pot without any issue! Experience how flavourful a “cream” sauce made from veggies can be.

Next, the Twelve Veggie Tomato Sauce is one of the only sauces on the market that you can eat both hot or cold! Amazingly versatile, it can be used as a salsa, bruschetta topping, pizza sauce, pasta sauce, enjoyed over rice or quinoa, soup base, chili base and pairs well with any meat or fish. No acidity as it is produced with water versus sugar typically found in other sauces.

And finally, for those of you with nightshade veggie sensitivities, there's Butternut Squash Beet Sauce a brilliantly delectable tomato-less alternative. For those who can’t digest nightshades such as tomatoes, eggplant and peppers (to name a few), itoffers a delicious solution (and of course can also be enjoyed on almost any diet). Fantastic over pasta, as a pizza sauce or simply for dipping! Try our ‘No-Mato’ Sauce and taste what you’ve been missing.

"Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?" This is classically quoted "go to" Monty Python and the Holy Grail material. And we're suggesting that you try new Go Co Bites, gently toasted coconut pressed into bite sized pieces which will soon become your new "go to" snack! Available in Simply CoconutCoconut with Salted Caramel and Coconut with Cocoa they're gluten free, high in fibre and full of delicious coconut flavour!

Another new product, sweetened with coconut sugar, is Nature's Path Organic Grain Free Granola in Vanilla Poppy Seed and Caramel Pecan flavours, respectively. These paleo friendly granolas are made with seeds and nuts and are a great source of Omega-3 polyunsaturates!

And for all you sweet-toothed folk out there, we have two new types of candy! Waterbridge Red and Black Berries Winegums taste of delicious raspberry and blackcurrant, not your typical winegum flavours! And Waterbridge Fizzy Pop combines ginger beer, pink lemonade, classic cola and cherryade flavours for  a super tangy, gelatine free treat!

Whew, that was a jam-packed newsletter! Hope you enjoyed reading about everything new to Pepper's Foods for another week. Until next time, take good care!
