GIFT FOR THE LUSH GYM RAT- OR YOURSELF
CalNaturale sent some awesome products our way! I jumped at the chance to review their Chardonnay, made from organic grapes. Doubts surfaced when I saw the “Tetra Pak” carton (which, btw, is made mostly of paper for sustainability and takes half the energy to produce as a glass wine bottle). But the wine was crisp and delicious, and the 1L container holds a third more volume than the traditional 750mL bottle.


Being the gym bunny that I am, I was happy to sample Svelte, the “sustained energy protein shake.” As a lactose intolerant consumer, I appreciate their use of organic soymilk as the primary ingredient. One 15.9oz carton provides a third of your suggested protein and dietary fiber for the day, and the sugar content is a super-low 9 grams. Much better than that mid-afternoon candy bar from the office vending machine (and the cappuccino shake tastes just as good)! Svelte case of twelve 15.9 Oz: 35.99 (variety pack $37.99)

Both of these would be great gifts for health- and socially-conscious foodies (organic and sustainable). Also, imagine the impression you’d make at a holiday dinner party, greeting your hosts with a carton of CalNaturale organic chardonnay or cab sav!
(Or maybe you should save this one for yourself.)
