Resolution # 1: DIETING

  By far, the resolution that tops almost everyone’s New Year’s list is losing weight. The key to success in this challenging endeavor is not to bite off more than you can chew. Stringent diets can lead to frustration and ultimately, failure. However, there is a way to cut back gradually without totally denying yourself the pleasure of eating what you like. Instead of “doing without” just “swap it out!” Did you know that unsweetened applesauce can replace sugar or oil/butter in baking? The measurement stays the same, but when replacing sugar with applesauce, you may need to cut back on the other liquids in the batter. A mashed banana can also take the place of an equal amount of butter or oil.   Pureed avocado can be used for butter in some recipes (including brownies) or spread on whole grain toast for a healthy breakfast.   Substitute vanilla to cut back on sugar in recipes. For example, if a recipe calls for one cup of sugar, use one-half cup sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla. That alone cuts out about 400 calories!   Use an equal amount of evaporated skim milk instead of cream in your coffee.   Quinoa can replace couscous anytime. They have similar textures, but quinoa is packed with proteins and nutrients.   Pasta will get you every time. But your favorite sauces will still stand out and may even taste better over a plate of spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. Time to get out the spiralizer.   There are plenty more ways to trade up to a healthier diet with less pain and less gain.

Head to Toe TLC Tips for the Winter

  It’s important to protect and nurture your skin during the harsh winter weather. Here are some simple and natural ways to stay aglow even in the snow. Hydrate: Drinking water helps maintain the skin’s elasticity and also gets rid of toxins. Steam: A steam bath or facial steamer is a great way to open up your pores, increase circulation and keep skin feeling softer. Exfoliate: Gentle, natural exfoliating scrubs remove dead skin. Try a mixture of brown sugar or coffee with baking soda. Moisturize: The best and most effective moisturizers contain natural ingredients like olive or coconut oils and natural scents or essential oils for fragrance. You can easily make your own at home or purchase products from producers like Lotus 8. Cover up: Hat, gloves, scarves, boots…whatever it takes to keep you warm and dry will also keep your skin from drying and cracking. For the parts you can’t cover up, like your lips, make sure you use lip balm. Visit us at Doylestown Food Market to see our full line of body care products from Lotus 8, The Brown Soap Company and Barefoot Body.

Featured January Producer : Tea Can Company

Written By Eileen Seiler  The Tea Can Company Blends Artistry and Original ”tea”    A truly great idea never loses its potency; but sometimes it has to steep for a while before its ambition can be realized. Such was the case with Donna McCafferty. Her college project, a smartly designed tin for holding tea, aptly named “Creativitea,” sat on her office shelf for years until a lifestyle change carried with it the opportunity and inspiration to launch The Tea Can Company. McCafferty studied at Parsons School of Design operates her own graphic design business. Over the years, she occasionally would present her advertising clients with gifts of tea in customized tins, all to rave reviews. At the same time, McCafferty was facing some personal challenges and started learning about teas as a way to reduce stress and foster wellness. “Everyone was telling me, ‘You have to do something with this,’” McCafferty says. “So I resurrected my college project in high end fashion.” The Tea Can Company now serves a wide variety of clients, creating custom canisters filled with premium teas for everything from fundraisers, corporate promotions and travel venues to weddings, special events and holidays. For example, you can find “Universiteas” created specifically for Penn State, Drexel and Rutgers among other schools. And, of course, there is Bucks Countea. McCaffrey also has done designs for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Flower Show and the Celtic Festival. Her most interesting request yet was to have her teas depicted on a poster promoting the recent movie, Me Before You. Personalization is very important,” McCafferty says. “We can tie any event, logo or concept into something tea-related. It is a great marketing tool.” The Tea Can Company also has a fundraising program in which non-profits can sell the products to raise money for schools, churches, foundations and organizations. While the exceptional design catches your eye, the amazing tea inside captures the rest of your senses. McCafferty selects only the “best of the best” all natural teas from around the world for her collection, which includes 24 core flavors; some of a floral nature such as Hibiscus Flower and some more traditional teas like Earl Grey. She also offers a line of organic teas and some non-traditional options such as wine teas and her Candy Shop collection. The teas are packaged in biodegradable sachets and each brews two to three cups. “Tea is a living plant,” McCafferty says. “We go through great investigation to really learn about the tea we choose. It is the part of the business I love the most.” The Tea Can Company products also are available for sale at local farm markets and natural food stores like Doylestown Food Market, where McCafferty will be showcasing her teas on January 14th and 21st from 2 to 4 pm. “Doing business locally is a win-win situation,” she says. “We believe in supporting our community.”
