"Kiss My Face", a well established line of beauty products, offers a shower gel that promises to "provide a dose of soothing comfort". Their "Cold and Flu Body and Shower Gel" is made with therapeutic Eucalyptus that will calm and cool any malady, Fennel, a wonderful anti-inflammatory, as well as Horehound, an aromatic ingredient that also helps sooth. Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, and Allantoin will also serve as a pick-me-up during the most uncomfortable time of this season of change!

So if allergies, colds, or flus have you feeling down, stop by Food For Thought and snatch up a bottle of pure soothing comfort, "Kiss My Face's Cold and Flu Shower and Bath Gel".

Angie's Lite Kettlecorn

Food for Thought now carries Angie's Kettlecorn, including their "lite" version! True, you could purchase a "pop it yourself" brand from the grocery store but did you know that most microwave varieties are made with hydrogenated oils and the artificial sweetener Sucralose? This is due to the fact that sugar in the microwave burns. So if you are looking for a healthy version that's simply made with only popcorn, corn oil, sugar and sea salt look no further than Angie's! They use no artificial flavors or preservatives in a facility that is free of nuts and wheat.

A two and a half cup serving will run you 120 calories with only 4 grams of fat, 4 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber!

Supplement Shorts: D3

Dodge disease and stay Happy with Viamin D3

Blood levels of certain nutrients drop as we age, slowing production of mood-boosting neurotransmitters. Luckily, scientists have discovered that upping your intake of the "sunshine" vitamin makes you 40% less likely to suffer from age-related depression! It boosts your brain's production of serotonin, the most important mood-regulating chemical. It also boosts immune systems as we age, slashing our risks of getting sick up to 50%.

Aim for a 2,000-IU supplement daily, or spend 15 minutes in the sun without sunscreen.
