Welcome to the wonderful Epicure Gourmet Market. Talk about a place to really excite your appetite, and motivate you to do some fun things in the kitchen! Gourmet products galore line the shelves, from the obscure cheeses found in Epicure’s amazing deli, to a wonderful selection of Italian (pastas, olive oils) and gluten-free products to tempt your taste buds…even down to the basics like water!
This time of year, proper hydration is a big deal — and most of us simply aren’t drinking enough water. If a plain old glass of the good stuff isn’t appealing, Epicure carries some tasty alternatives. Store Manager, Stephanie Hernandez, and I sampled a trio of brands you won’t find just anywhere.
ALO waters come bottled with real aloe vera, are all-natural and contain no artificial colors or flavoring. One we tried was called “Comfort” with watermelon, peach, aloe vera pulp, and juice. Very invigorating and great for digestion.
Penta water is one of the highest quality waters you can buy today anywhere. It’s patented 13 step, 11 hour filtration system filters only the purest water in container form. With no ‘bottle’ aftertaste, this enhanced H2O is actually nourishing for your skin and organs…and even comes doctor recommended!
Coconut water is one of my favorite new finds. They say it’s Mother Nature’s energy drink! Perfect for pre or post-workout, Victoria’s Kitchen is a lovely line that comes loaded with potassium as well as other essential vitamins you’ll need to make the most of your exercise. All three options are best when refrigerated. Treat your body today!
