February is for the hearts!

February is American Heart Month and the celebration of Valentine’s Day, so who wouldn’t be picturing hearts? 

That being said, it is a great time to take care of your heart, both in a physical and emotional way. There is a great initiative going on called Million Hearts. Their goal is working to help prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes across the United States by the year 2017. Visit http://millionhearts.hhs.gov/ for tons of information on how simple changes can make a big difference and how to make blood pressure control a goal for yourself this month.

Treat your sweetheart to home-made
Organic Chocolate
Covered Strawberries

6 ounces Organic semisweet chocolate, chopped
3 ounces  Organic white chocolate, chopped
1 pound Organic Strawberries, with stems (about 20), washed and dried very well

Put the semisweet and white chocolates into 2 separate heatproof medium bowls. Fill 2 medium saucepans with a couple inches of water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat; set the bowls of chocolate over the water to melt. Stir until smooth. (Alternatively, melt the chocolates in a microwave at half power, for 1 minute, stir and then heat for another minute or until melted.)

Once the chocolates are melted and smooth, remove from the heat. Line a sheet pan with parchment or waxed paper. Holding the strawberry by the stem, dip the fruit into the dark chocolate, lift and twist slightly, letting any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Set strawberries on the parchment paper. Repeat with the rest of the strawberries. Dip a fork in the white chocolate and drizzle the white chocolate over the dipped strawberries.

Set the strawberries aside until the chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.

February is American Heart Month

5 Diet Rules for a Healthy Heart:

Half of heart disease deaths in the U.S. are preventable. According to an Emory University study, the leading five controllable risk factors are obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and smoking. Eighty percent of Americans have at least one risk factor. Follow these heart-healthy diet tips to fight the big 5 risk factors.

1- Focus on Fiber
            You don’t have to follow a strict diet to lose weight, according to a 2015 study in Annals of Internal Medicine. Individuals who simply ate 30 grams of fiber daily last almost as much weight as those on a low-cal diet. So chow down on fiber-rich foods, such as raspberries, broccoli and lentils.
2 – Skip Sugary Sips
            Sugary beverages are so sweet for type 2 diabetes. When British adults swapped their daily soft drink for water or unsweetened coffee or tea, their type 2 diabetes risk dropped 14 to 25 percent. Smart sipping doesn’t have to be boring – infuse your water with cucumber or mint or switch to seltzer with lemon. 
3 – Go Vegetarian
            Giving up meat may have a similar impact on your blood pressure as nixing salt, sound a review published in JAMA Internal Medicine. Going vegetarian was associated with a 5 mmHg drop in systolic blood pressure, which could reduce your risk of death from heart disease by up to 9 percent.
4 – Get Omega-3S
            Omega-3S may help you quit smoking, according to a study. Smokers who took supplements of EPA and DHA (two types of Omega-3S) for a month, smoked less and had weaker cravings. To get this from salmon, you’d need over 12 ounces daily, so supplements may be more realistic.
5 – Enjoy Eggs
            No need to give up eggs, found research from the FASEB journal. Compared to those who ate an oatmeal breakfast every day for a month, egg-eaters saw no increase in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Plus, HDL (“good”) cholesterol increased. Oatmeal eaters kept LDL steady, but didn’t get the HDL bump.

Welcome 2016!

With the start of each new year, many of us make resolutions, set new goals, make plans and get excited for a new year and new beginnings.  And for many of us, those plans may involve eating a healthier diet or taking better care of ourselves. Maybe workout a little harder or really concentrate on making the effort to live a healthier lifestyle. We get a chance to start fresh, start over or continue to work just as hard as we have been in the past year to reach our new goals. Whichever path you may be following, we are here to help you succeed and conquer all those goals!


Need an immune system boost?
Try Elderberry!
Focusing on boosting the immune system with top natural ingredients is the best way to avoid illness.
Research says elderberry is used for its antioxidant activity, to lower cholesterol, to improve vision, to boost the immune system, to improve heart health and for coughs, colds, flu, bacterial and viral infections and tonsillitis. Bioflavonoids and other proteins in the juice destroy the ability of cold and flu viruses to infect a cell. People with the flu who took elderberry juice reported less severe symptoms and felt better much faster than those who did not.


Produce Spotlight!

Winter Squash: 
Butternut Variety

  • What it looks like: This pear-shaped squash has a smooth, cream-colored exterior with bright orange flesh and comparatively few seeds.
  • Buying and storing: Look for squash that’s firm, heavy for its size, and free from cracks and soft spots.
  • Flavor: This is the sweetest variety of winter squash.
  • How to use it: Butternut squash is extremely versatile. It’s perfect for roasting and sautéing, or making a smooth purée or soup.

New Windsor Store

Construction at Nature's Pantry New Location in New Windsor
By Jessica Dinapoli | 
Times Herald-Record | Published: 2:00 AM – 06/26/13

NEW WINDSOR — Attention, people suffering from various food sensitivities, including gluten or lactose intolerance. Your mecca, Nature’s Pantry on Route 17K in Newburgh, is moving and tripling in size.

The specialty market, which also offers a bounty of organic and natural foods, plans to relocate in August from Newburgh to the New Windsor Commons on Route 94 in New Windsor. The recently revamped strip mall is better known as the former home of Upskate, a roller rink.

The new 15,000-square-foot store will offer shoppers an expanded produce selection, at least twice as much frozen food, a deli counter and seating, said owner Richard Masterson. There will be more dairy products and dry grocery items, like crackers and noodles, too.

“Business has grown over the past five years,” Masterson said. “We certainly need more space, because the variety of products has increased over the years.”


Featuring gluten-free

When Masterson bought Nature’s Pantry in the late 1980s, then just a small shop in Wappingers Falls, he found that most of his customers were lactose-intolerant. About one-third of the ‘dairy’ products at his stores now are lactose-free — like soy yogurt and soy cheese. Since then, he’s seen food sensitivities change dramatically.

“We have more gluten-free customers now,” he said.

A large section of the new store will feature products manufactured by companies that only make gluten-free food. The section doesn’t include naturally gluten-free food like rice, or gluten-free products made by conventional brands, like Amy’s Kitchen, Masterson said.


More parking

Space in the 5,400-square-foot Newburgh store had been tight for awhile. In 2007, Masterson opened a 14,000-square-foot store in Fishkill, which will serve as the model for the New Windsor shop.

He has been planning the move for the past two years, and had a Realtor scout out suitable locations.

The New Windsor location, which was once a supermarket, worked because it has a stop light at the entrance and more than ample parking. Getting in and out of the Newburgh shop is problematic, and the parking lot is small.


Marketing groundwork

Before picking a new location, store employees asked customers for their ZIP codes. Masterson knew he had a big base of customers — mainly those with food allergies — who traveled from 30 miles away or more.

But, 70 percent of his customers came from a 15-mile radius of the store, with many concentrated in the Newburgh, New Windsor and Walden areas, Masterson said.

It was another reason to move to New Windsor — even if the new shop is on a quiet stretch of Route 94 off the beaten path for retail development. The strip mall, nearly vacant since Upskate closed, is also within a mile of two relatively new supermarkets with large natural-food selections, Hannaford and ShopRite.

Nature’s Pantry has a different variety of products, Masterson said. He works with a number of small food manufacturers and also sells locally sourced products.

“If we do our job right, we’ll have no difficulties,” Masterson said.
