Pointers for Packing the Perfect Summer Picnic

(NewsUSA) - There are a few things that signify summer is in full swing: the sound of an ice cream truck driving down the street, catching lightning bugs on a warm night and outdoor picnics with your favorite fare. Between meal prep and setting up shop, packing the perfect picnic basket may seem like a chore, but it can be a walk in the park with a few quick tips.

Whether you're planning an outdoor outing for your whole family or just a party of two, you're sure to have a great time if you keep these pointers in mind:

* Forget the Forks: Portability is number one when it comes to a mess-free picnic. Save yourself the hassle of creating dishes that require multiple utensils and opt for simple sandwiches instead. For easy assembly and a fun twist, bring along delicious ingredients like lean protein, sharp cheeses and tangy condiments for a "build-your-own" bar. Guests will love testing their culinary chops with protein-packed options like Simply Delicious sandwich meats from Land O'Frost. Available in a wide selection of flavors, from black forest ham and slow-roasted beef to honey-roasted turkey breast, the entire line of Simply Delicious products contain no artificial flavors, by-products or added hormones.

* Reverse Your Thinking: Once you've identified your picnic destination, it can take a while to prep before you can chow down. Streamline setup by packing your basket in reverse order. Rather than placing food items on top, move them to the bottom of your basket, followed by serving items and a tablecloth to top it off. This will make it easy to grab what you need when you arrive. * Squeeze In Extra Savings: If you're planning to grill at your next picnic, save yourself the trouble of packing full-size condiments for burgers and hot dogs, and bring along portable packs. Save extra condiment packets from your favorite fast-food restaurants to add to your next picnic basket. Taking up almost no room, these are ideal for outdoor meals.

With these time-saving tips in mind, your summer picnics will be a breeze. For coupons and more information about Simply Delicious products from Land O'Frost, visit www.landofrost.com.

Natural Snacks Make Nutritious Meals

(NewsUSA) - Three square meals a day are a thing of the past. Busy schedules, diverse dietary preferences and the flow of modern life necessitate more flexible and convenient meals. Luckily, snacking is in the midst of a revolution. Traditional snacks like chips and pretzels have given way to bigger, better and healthier options that deliver both convenience and nutrition in one tasty package. Whether clean-label, organic, vegan or nutrient-added, it's up to ingredient suppliers and manufacturers to develop products that meet all of these demands. That's certainly a tall order.

While there are no standard requirements for clean label snacks, naturally derived gums, hydrocolloids and colors are generally accepted in such applications and have become increasingly popular. You might see these ingredients listed as carrageenan, a soluble fiber from red seaweed, or cellulose gel, which is a refined plant fiber. In many foods and beverages, these ingredients improve shelf life and nutritional value without diminishing taste -- like giving drinkable low-fat yogurt that distinctive creamy consistency with every sip.

They also prove quite functional in products that meet strict dietary requirements, like gluten-free and vegetarian options. Hydrocolloids and gums like carrageenan, alginates and cellulose gel can be sustainably sourced from nature and are perfectly suited for vegetarian and vegan foods. Either by improving the flavor and fullness of meatless sausage or producing non-dairy ice cream with that definitive indulgence and delectability, these ingredients are making new snacking options both possible and palatable.

Reducing the number of ingredients in a recipe is one challenge and, more recently, adding ingredients has become another. We want foods and beverages with added value, but it's important to understand that introducing vitamins or nutrients to any product can significantly affect flavor and texture. Enriched, shelf-stable snacks that boast added protein need a stabilizer to maintain the quality of the product. Without the added ingredients like carrageenan, similar products might separate, taste chalky or be less effective than their claims imply.

Food companies are adapting their product formulations and rolling out new products to meet demand for healthy snacking solutions. Naturally derived ingredients that help reduce fat and sugar content but maintain product integrity are changing the way we snack. They deliver that indulgent experience we all appreciate.

How American-Made Products Benefit Many

Lifestyles - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 08:24

(NewsUSA) - "Made in America" matters; almost 80 percent of Americans would prefer to buy an American-made product instead of one made abroad, based on data from a national survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. The findings appeared in an article in the February 2013 issue of Consumer Reports magazine.

In addition, more than 80 percent of the survey respondents cited keeping American jobs and maintaining America's strength in the global economy as reasons to support American-made products.

Henry Repeating Arms, maker of repeating firearms based on the design that was patented in 1860, is one example of a company that takes pride in its American roots and gives back to the country and communities.

The company's Guns for Great Causes program includes a range of activities that benefit individuals and organizations of all sizes.

Examples of how the company has made a difference include a donation of two Henry rifles to a Missouri high school fundraiser to send the school choir to perform at Carnegie Hall, as well as a donation of 100 Henry rifles custom embellished with the Kansas state flower to benefit a sick 4 year old girl from Sedan, Kan. Henry is the lead sponsor of the Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam 40th Anniversary to benefit The Journey Home Project program for veterans. It has made donations to many medical charities, including the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital, the Roger Maris Cancer Center and the Ronald McDonald House. Within its industry, Henry supports the NRA, as well as many wildlife conservation and youth shooting sports organizations.

Henry Repeating Arms is one of many companies that support American troops via the USO and a multitude of charitable military organizations -- such as the Marine Corp Scholarship Fund, Operation Homefront and Paralyzed Veterans of America. Anthony Imperato, president of Henry Repeating Arms, has personally thanked many veterans for their service with a gift of a Henry Military Service Tribute Edition rifle.

Extraordinary customer service is a key foundation of the company's success. Henry's Extreme Customer Service policy means that all customer service issues are handled in-house by a staff operating with a mandate from Mr. Imperato to do whatever it takes to make certain the customer is satisfied. The policy includes an unlimited lifetime guarantee on products, and Mr. Imperato responds personally to customer emails seven days a week.
