Eat and Drink Local at Evergreen Fine Fresh Foods

November 19, 2014 5:03 pm

If your stomach is rumbling around lunchtime, take a tip from Englewood locals and get yourself to Evergreen Fine Fresh Foods. Unlike most of the other area delis, this place stands out with a commitment to seasonal, fresh foods.

The menu changes each and every day, but a few things remain consistent. The “low carb lunch” is a popular among dieters, pairing lean protein (most get it with chicken) with delicately seared haricots verts, asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower seasoned with a hint of sesame oil. The accompanying lemon basil aioli also receives two thumbs up from regulars. Sandwiches and wraps are equally robust, while the popular juice bar serves both traditional blends and some unique offerings. (The Green Tea Arnold Palmer is a zesty, invigorating drink that wins raves.)

Prices are very reasonable at Evergreen Fine Fresh Foods.

November 12, 2014 6:39 pm

It helps you to find out what works best for your body, and it helps you to stay motivated and keep going back for more.

It’s not all nerve-wracking, however: you’ll also earn cold, hard cash from other members when you stick to your diet or hit the gym!

Three Uncommon Uses for Dryer Sheets

November 6, 2014 5:03 pm

From brand-new dryer sheets to used ones straight from the dryer, there are a number of different ways to use dryer sheets around the house. These static-absorbing, fresh smelling sheets are some of the most useful household products you can find, and they’ll even help you in places other than the laundry room. Here are some of the best lesser-known uses for dryer sheets.

  1. Quickly eliminate static. Dryer sheets are made to remove static from your laundry in the dryer, so why not use them on the clothes you’re wearing, too? Simply run a dryer sheet up and down that static-prone blouse or shirt, and you’ll be good to go.
  2. Dust hard surfaces. Used dryer sheets make cheap, effective tools for dusting furniture. Just use the sheet like you would a rag or paper towel. Because they're meant to attract static and lint, dryer sheets will attract dust as well.
  3. Repel insects. It seems unlikely, but bugs really do not enjoy the fresh scent of dryer sheets. Tuck one in a lunchbox or picnic basket to keep insects at bay, or even rub a new sheet across your skin before you go out on an afternoon hike.
