Tips & Picks for Game Day Entertaining

As the dust from the playoffs start to settle, and the last two teams standing face each other for the big game, football fans across the country congregate to enjoy the competition, food, friends and of course, those awesome commercials!

If you’re planning on hosting a game day party to root for your favorite team (or just enjoy this last hurrah of the season if your team didn’t make the cut!), here are a few tips to get you prepared along with some of our top picks for football fun at home:

It’s all about atmosphere. Make your home more festive than any bar in town by incorporating team colors—napkins, paper plates, serving bowls, pennants, balloons… It IS a party after all! Try having a football ready to toss around between guests during halftime. It’ll get everyone in the touchdown spirit!

Snacks, snacks, and more snacks! Chips and dip are a great game-day go to. Since this IS the biggest game of the year, why not elevate your selection of dips by whipping up something special in a slow cooker? Mom’s chilli anyone?

Highbury Whittier 3-Section Tray, 7. Waring Pro Buffet Server, 8. Wilson NFL Game Ball, 9. Bodum Picnic Charcoal Grill

Tailgate favorites are always a hit. An at-home football party calls for BBQ classics, wings and ribs! They keep hungry guests happy…even if their team is on the losing end. Set up a buffet-style table with a heated server, some colorful serving plates and some stick-to-your ribs recipes.  

Cheer on your team with a selection of beverages. Beer and soda are the obvious must-haves for football parties, but make sure you offer lots of cold water, too! If you really want to impress your guests, bring the bar home by serving a traditional foam-topped beer from your personal beer draught tap!

Juicers 101: A Healthy Start to Your New Year

You’ve probably heard of all the great benefits of juicing as a way of consuming fresh, raw foods in your daily diet. Sounds simple enough, right? Extract all the nutrients inside fruits and vegetables, drink them and reap the health benefits. But selecting the right kind of juicer can be a bit tricky for the juicing novice.

We’ve broken down three of the most common types of juicers on the market to find the one that works best for you:

breville, Breville juicers, citrus press, different type of juicers, healthy eating, healthy habits, healthy lifestyle, juicers, juicing, krups, Krups citrus press, new year's resolution, Omega, Omega Juicers

1. Breville Juice Fountain Compact, 2. Omega Nutrition Center Heavy-Duty Juicer, 3. Krups Silver Art Citrus Press

Centrifugal Juicers: This is generally the most affordable kind of juicer and therefore the most popular type on the market. They’re great for juicing most fruits and vegetables quickly and efficiently. However, they’re not as effective at yielding high volumes of juice from grassy and leafy plants such as wheatgrass, spinach, lettuce and other greens.

Centrifugal juicers usually have large feeding chutes allowing you to take the whole or half the fruit without the need for cutting them into smaller pieces.

The juice from these types of juicers typically has a very short shelf life and should be consumed right away to get the most nutritional value.

Masticating Juicers: Also known as single-gear juicer, this breaks up the plant cells resulting in more fiber, enzymes and trace mineral yields. These are generally more efficient than Centrifugal juicers in extracting more juice (i.e. the pulp comes out drier), and are great at juicing greens/leafy vegetables. However, they are more expensive than centrifugal juicers.

These operate at lower RPMs (rotations per minute), meaning there’s less foam and heat conducted, increasing the shelf life and nutrition yield per serving. Masticating juicers are also more versatile since they can homogenize foods to make sauces, baby food, ice cream, sorbets, nut butters, etc.

Citrus Presses: An electric citrus press works similarly to manual ones but more quickly and yields more juice per fruit. Some of the benefits of fresh-squeezed citrus juice versus the store-bought kind are: a fresher taste, fewer or no additives and preservatives, and more nutrient integrity. Remember, as soon as the juice hits the air, oxygenation begins to degrade the nutrient content. That’s why treating yourself to fresh-squeezed orange or grapefruit juice every day with a balanced breakfast is by far the healthier option!

Drink up for a healthier you in 2013!
