Pack these on your next picnic: These fully biodegradable plastic utensils are derived from corn, making them a more eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastic products.
Organic. Vegan. Soap?
That’s right: Herban Cowboy personal grooming products — including cologne, aftershave balm, deodorant, shave cream and soap — are 100 percent vegan, made with organic ingredients, and even come in recyclable packaging. We think they make great gifts for dads who love the planet.

Our beer brats are made with 100 percent natural PrairieFresh pork shoulder, our own mix of spices and Sudwerks beer. Plus, they’re 100 percent delicious.
Health Notes from Dr. Liz:
Delicious and Nutritious Peaches and Nectarines
Nothing tastes more like summer than a juicy, sun-kissed peach or nectarine. These stone fruits, which have an inner hard-shell-protected seed, are available in several varieties with either yellow or white flesh. Their skin comes in tones of blush orange and red making both peaches and nectarines rich in disease-fighting compounds such as flavanoids and carotenes. A medium-sized peach or nectarine supplies a mere 60 to 70 calories with a wealth of potassium, a mineral that plays a vital role in maintaining healthy blood pressure. Each piece of fruit also supplies more than 10 percent of the daily value for fiber, much of it the water-soluble type, which helps lower circulating cholesterol levels.
