in my cupboard: helen’s kitchen frozen meals

A flavorful, preservative-free, frozen meal can be hard to come by but Helen’s Kitchen has got it down.  I tried the Indian Curry with Tofu Steaks over Rice – it is perfectly flavored and tastes like it came straight from the Indian take-out restaurant. It is Certified Organic, Vegan, a good source of Calcium, high in Iron & Vitamins A & C, and Gluten, MSG & GMO free. My only complaint is that they don’t use brown rice but even that won’t stop me from trying other varieties. Keep your eye’s out for their new products coming out soon – I sampled some at the Natural Products Expo West and was very impressed.

in my cupboard: borba water


I found this water at Target and was initially intrigued by it’s unique bottle shape.  After a closer glance I knew I had to try it.  It is high in antioxidants Vitamin C & E, contains B vitamins, uses natural flavors and is calorie-free.  The lychee fruit flavor was very refreshing and not too sweet. This drink was originally designed by a Esthetician to diminish skin’s dryness, sensitivity and roughness, but I will definitely be buying it again because it tastes great and makes a great cocktail!  Find more information about Borba products here.
