water

With the temps heating up and our days getting longer, staying hydrated should be top priority for kids and adults alike. According to the Mayo Clinic, men should be drinking about 13 cups and women 9 cups per day, on average. But does plain old water bore you? We’ve come up with a list of ways to freshen up your H2O, that’ll have you thirsting for more:

1. Cucumber: Give your water a boost in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, while infusing a fresh taste – and it’s also been credited with curbing appetite and lowering blood pressure.

2. Fruit ice cubes: Freeze fresh berries into ice cubes and add to your water for a sweet surprise! Take advantage of the anti-oxidants that most berries offer, while naturally sweetening and keeping your water cold – it’s a triple threat!

3. Citrus fruits: Pucker up with lemon, lime or orange slices to add a great summer kick! Along with all the health benefits that come with citrus (potassium, cleansing, reducing inflammation, to name a few) it will also leave you with amazingly fresh breath!

4. Crushed pineapple and mint: Feeling exotic? This duet will feel like a cool breeze on a hot day, not to mention that it should help with digestion and perking up your immune system to avoid the dreaded summer cold.

5. Vanilla: Naturally high in anti-oxidants, fresh or extract, this is a unique treat. If you want it sweeter, add Stevia or the natural sweetener of your choice. Try this one out on your kids, too for a totally new take on water.

6. Apples and cinnamon: Available all year round, this classic combo has been known to lower blood sugar while boosting energy! For best results, slice apples and grate fresh cinnamon, and you can even use the same apples slices up to 4 times without needing new ones.

7. Jalapeno peppers: For sinus relief, a break from your headache relief or if you’re just feeling spicy, add whole peppers to your water and take it up a notch. Muy caliente!

House-made Caramel Sauce

Share HVRShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedIn

We bet you didn’t know how easy it is to make your own caramel sauce from scratch… Try this easy recipe from our kitchen – soon you’ll be adding to caramel to just about everything!

Ingredients:
1L granulated white sugar

1L whipping cream

2 tbsp. butter, softened

Directions:
Add the sugar to a large pot on the stove, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until it becomes liquefied and turns a light caramel colour.

Whisk in the butter.

Add the cream in small amounts very slowly, whisking constantly.

Once it’s all blended, remove the pot from the stove. Strain the liquid to separate any sugar lumps.

Serve and enjoy over ice cream, pie, cupcakes, or anything else! Mmmm… Caramel can be stored in the fridge for up to a month.

2015 Superfoods: Are You on Trend?

Share HVRShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedIn
cauliflower-379873_1280

Step aside, acai berry, quinoa and ancient grains! While you’re still considered superfoods, there’s a new gang in town… Looking for the who’s who of superfoods for 2015? Check out our top 5 to see if you’re on trend:

Kalettes: If kale and brussel sprouts had a baby… then they made the kalette! Kalettes are a hybrid mix of these two power greens. With a milder taste and all the vitamins and minerals kale provides (Vitamin C, K, folate and carotenoids) this one might just be the perfect addition to your morning smoothies.

Cauliflower: Now starring in recipes from Alfredo sauce to pizza crust, cauliflower boasts tons of health benefits… It’s full of vitamins and minerals (including 77% of the daily recommended dose of Vitamin C), and detoxifying, with anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. Looks like it’s time to get creative with cauliflower!

Matcha tea powder: Make room in your pantry for matcha green tea powder. With all the health properties of green tea, the powder form allows you to ingest the entire leaf, rather than just the brewed water. In fact, it contains 10 times the nutritional value and antioxidants of regular green tea. It’s matcha tea time…

Pistachios: If you’re a health nut, pistachios should be on your list – they’re high in protein, fibre and healthy monounsaturated fat. Eaten in moderation, salt-free pistachios can help raise your levels of good cholesterol, so go nuts!

Coconut flour: If you’re baking up a storm, give (gluten-free) coconut flour a try. Not only does it add a very subtle coconut flavour, but it also contains the highest amounts of protein and fibre of any other type of flour. Give your baking a boost with this healthier option!
