V8 Goes Energy

V8 Energy Shots are a naturally powered shot of 100 percent vegetable and fruit juices combined with green tea extract, which provides natural caffeine comparable to an 8-ounce cup of the leading premium coffee. They are available at participating convenience stores, supermarkets and drugstores in Colorado, Florida and Minnesota.

The popularity of those little 5-Hour Energy drinks unsurprisingly has inspired the makers of V8 to throw their hat into the energy shot ring. Also launching is the larger-sized V8 V-Fusion + Energy. Read on for details.

Spin And Dip

B. Smith Lazy Susan with Serving Bowls Set

Everybody loves dip; not everybody loves everything that goes with it. Carrots and cauliflower pieces are often passed by for a pretzel stick or some kind of chip. In the end, salty and starchy wins over healthy and natural. However all that reaching over the veggies is sure to cause some sort of guilt trip. Better to just spin them out of the way altogether.

The B. Smith Lazy Susan with Serving Bowls Set features a revolving base allowing for the best snacks to always be within reach. The four porcelain serving bowls each hold 11-ounces, while the top large bowl hold 21-ounces. The bowls are all microwave, oven and dishwasher safe so clean up and prep is a breeze. A small tea light in the center helps to keep the dip warm, no matter how many broccoli florets get passed by.

Good idea for veggies is full of holes

Skillet Steamer

Steamed veggies are great, but the one problem they have is that they require steam. The fastest, simplest way to achieve this is to boil water. In a pot with a steam basket. In a pot that happens to be dirty. Oh well, leftover pizza sounds good too.

Loofah those fruits and vegetables

Eggplant, Ladybug and Pineapple Kitchen Loofahs

Fruits and vegetables never looked better after getting scrubbed with these Loofah-Art Natural Non-Scratch Kitchen Scrubber – Assorted Vegetables (Eggplant). Choose between Eggplant, Ladybug or Pineapple (and more) and easily wash dirt and grime away from everyday foods. The soft surface also means that these loofahs can also be used to safely clean non-stick pots and pans.

The best part is when not in use, these little loofahs look great hanging next to the sink. They each measure about 4-inches by 3-inches, and are instantly recognizable as the thing that they portray; although I’m not exactly sure what a ladybug has to do with a pineapple and an eggplant.
