Wishing all of you celebrating Eid a blessed Eid.
Eid Mubarak.I had the opportunity to taste the creamy new Gay Lea's Coconut Whipped Cream made with pure coconut cream. This non-dairy and lactose free whipped cream is perfect for vegans, and those who are lactose intolerant. Gay Lea's Coconut Whipped Cream is cholesterol free and has 13% fat. It taste just like the regular whipped cream that my family and I are used to, and is fabulous served with fruit, dessert, and hot beverages.

Staying hydrated is an important part of living a healthy lifestyle. A new survey of Canadian mothers conducted by Ipsos Reid on behalf of Nestlé Waters Canada reveals that, on average, moms are consuming between three to four soft drinks per week. 39 percent say they are not looking to reduce their intake of these drinks at all. When thinking about the number of teaspoons of sugar an average soft drink contains, just two in ten moms correctly identified 10 teaspoons per container. Juice can also come in at a high count with an average 355 ml glass of orange juice containing just over 8 teaspoons.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed sweeping regulations that would require states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector by an average of 30 percent nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration’s policies designed to eliminate low cost and reliable electricity and replace it with expensive and less reliable sources. The impact of this regulation will be felt by all Americans, as the electricity bills will become expensive.

I recently checked out the FoodSaver® 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealing System, which I never thought would be very useful. When I usually buy meat and fish in bulk or have extra vegetable and fruits from the garden I like to freeze, but bagging them or putting in containers don't usually keep the produce fresh. When I tested and used the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer, I was impressed how easily I can freeze both cooked and uncooked meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits. FoodSaver® preserves food five times longer than other storage methods like Ziploc bags.
