These days, the notion of Spring Cleaning applies more to tasks like purging your closets or scrubbing the floors: the really time-sucking, dirty jobs that you put off doing as long as possible.  I think I can speak for the majority though when I say that — in the past two years especially — day-to-day cleaning is what is on everyone’s mind. Most importantly, from wiping-down counter tops to being extra vigilant about washing your hands, we look for products that clean effectively, are gentle on the skin, and are made from natural ingredients wherever possible. There could not be a better time than now to introduce you to the Hand over Heart line of household cleaning essentials. Hand over Heart is a family business founded on the belief that no one should have to choose between cleaner living and effective cleaning.

For those in-the-know about natural remedies, it’s no secret that the Elderberry plant has been called “nature’s medicine chest,” since its berries and flowers are packed with antioxidants and vitamins that may boost your immune system. Elderberry dietary supplements are available as gummies, lozenges, syrups and teas to help ease inflammation, lessen stress, improve heart health, and to prevent and mitigate cold and flu symptoms.  As we move through the pandemic, having a strong immune system is more important than ever. While researching elderberry supplements after recovering from Covid, I was introduced to Elderberry Immune Support from Good Made Great Foods, which makes adding an elderberry supplement to your wellness routine convenient and delicious.

I’m not proud to admit it, but it took a pandemic to turn me on to CBD products for alleviating my chronic pain. When NYC was locked down and I couldn’t visit my Chiropractor, PT or Massage Therapist for the hands-on, muscle manipulation I need,  I discovered how topical products infused with natural hemp-derived CBD could work quickly and effectively to relieve my joint pain. Now, I don’t know how I lived without them. If you’re curious about using CBD for better health, but not sure where to start, let me tell you about Keoni CBD. This Kentucky-based wellness brand recently sent me a selection of their most popular products, which I’ve been using for a few weeks now. I am honestly thrilled with the results and excited to review Keoni CBD for The ‘Gig!

Product Review: Elyptol Natural Cleaning Wipes

In this modern Covid life that we live, do you find that your hands are perpetually red and chapped from constant washing, as well as endlessly wiping down counters and household surfaces with disinfectant wipes that can dry your skin even further? Not to mention, but you can see I am about to, the fact that for many months wipes were difficult, if not impossible, to even find on the shelves. I think we can all relate to the intimate new relationship that we have with disinfectant wipes; a product that, prior to March of 2020, I will confess to having purchased maybe once or twice in my entire life. Just being serious.

Delicious Meat Product: Applegate Naturals Pepperoni!

Do you like Pepperoni? I sure do. To me, pepperoni pizza is especially delicious when the pepperoni is very thinly sliced so that it gets crispy like bacon and curls up around the edges when it comes out of the oven. Oh my goodness, heavenly. Pepperoni sometimes scares people, however, because it can contain a lot of salt and hidden preservatives, which are the very things that help to make it so delicious. What a conundrum.

Applegate Pepperoni Sliced
Look How Thinly Sliced It Is!

Fortunately, Applegate Organic and Natural Meats offers two great tasting varieties of uncured Pepperoni, one made from pork and one made from Turkey. Both are lean, tender and flavored with the just the right amount of spice. Not only do they make killer Pepperoni Pizzas, but the taste is mild enough that you can easily use them to make sandwiches and party snacks or just eat it straight from the package. Versatile!

Here are some little sandwiches I made after heating the Turkey Pepperonis in a skillet for just a few minutes.

Breakfast Pizza

I made this Pepperoni and Scrambled Egg Breakfast Pizza using Arnold Multigrain Sandwich Thins as the crust. So easy!

And Frozen Pizza always needs extra Pepperoni on it, amiright?

Applegate Naturals Pepperoni contains no preservatives, so be sure to keep it refrigerated before and after opening. Likewise, it contains no nitrates or nitrites except for those occurring naturally in sea salt and celery powder, which are added for seasoning. All animals are humanely raised and the meat has no antibiotics and is gluten and casein free. All of these qualities contribute to this pepperoni being one delicious meat product!
