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.

Now that wipes of all sorts are back in-stock in most stores, it’s nice to have the option of using a brand made with natural ingredients that are also gentler on your skin.  Elyptol, makers of multi-use cleaning essentials, has just launched its all-natural cleaning wipes in Target stores nationwide and on Target.com.  I recently received a package of Elyptol Natural Cleaning Wipes for use here in the Chickpad so that I can let you know how they work. Here are my findings.

Before you can start using the wipes, you will a need short tutorial (not provided on the container, but provided here by me) on how to remove the lid  (which surprisingly neither twists off nor pops off easily) from the Elyptol Wipes container. First, get a large spoon from the kitchen, turn the container on its side, and nudge the edge the spoon’s bowl underneath the rim of the lid, then push the lid up and off.

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.

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!
