I am hosting a giveaway with Betsy’s Best. One winner in the U.S. will have the opportunity to win a four pack of her delicious nut butter, including 1 jar of Gourmet Seed Butter, Cashew Butter, Almond Butter and Peanut Butter. All of her products are feature unique ingredients like chia seeds, cinnamon and pink Himalayan salt making for an unbeatable tasting experience.
When I started purchasing nut butters lest my typical crunchy peanut butter, I always just assumed to use them as an alternative to spread on English muffins, toast, and other breakfast breads. It was not long after a close friend recommended I add almond butter to my daily protein smoothies that I had that “aha” moment. Nut butters are so versatile and can be incorporated into all three meals in a healthy and satisfying way.
I was recently introduced to Betsy’s Best, a gourmet nut butter company based in Naples, Florida. Founder, Betsy Opyt has created four incredibly scrumptious nut butters. Let your spoon dive in to pure comfort and nutty decadence (in a healthy way)! Her four nut butters include Gourmet Almond Butter, Sunflower Seed Butter, Peanut Butter, and Cashew Butter, which all include chia seeds. Chia seeds are rich in fiber, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals such as Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, copper, phosphorus, zinc, and potassium.
At my third visit to the Summer Fancy Food Show, I combed through hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of products to learn of the up-and-coming food trends. In addition, I seek out new and interesting specialty food products and local grocery stores and specialty markets. I am especially thrilled about this year’s top ten selection.
Discover my ten favorite specialty food brands and items from 2016.
What a year 2016 was! I had the pleasure of dining at the best restaurants in the Hamptons and North Fork as well as some notable restaurants in Manhattan, Connecticut and Washington D.C. It proved to be very tough to narrow it down to ten favorite dishes, but after careful consideration, I am thrilled to present the ten best things I ate this past year. I could only imagine what delectable plates 2017 will bring!
This year was filled with many great sips throughout both forks. I visited several new vineyards this year and had the opportunity to try many new, luscious beverages. Many of these bottled beauties are now enjoyed by me and my family on a regular basis. From a refreshing, floral lemonade to a sparkling ‘royal’ champagne, below I feature my top ten favorite things I drank in 2016.
