Thanks for the links Celeste. One article says ALA can have anti-cancer properties (with regard to breast tissue). Another says ALA may reduce risk of heart disease while it could be a risk factor for prostate cancer. Confusing! The studies are 6-9 years old, so I’d be interested in seeing if more recent research has been done on this topic. It’s definitely worth looking into. Thanks for passing them along!

Why overpay for a gourmet Bistro Box, when you can make one at home, for less and pack it with better ingredients! The best part about DIY? You can put whatever you want in it. We gave you some of our favorite toppings, but feel free to swap toast for crackers, cheddar for mozzarella, nut butter for hummus, maybe even add in some turkey slices — you get the point, pair up and enjoy.
I love agar agar and have used it to test out a cheese recipe! I, too, wonder why the double “agar agar” lol! So silly! But, hey, whatever! I’m dying over how gorgeous and vibrant these are and dang, I love how much healthier they are than the sugar-tastic ones full of crap at the grocery stores! My husband is not a big sweets fan, but he absolutely LOVES gummies, so I absolutely need to make these for him. He’d gobble them up super fast I’m betting…oh and me and Olivia would too. I love that you did 2 different flavors and I would be all over the orange ones. I love orange juice and syrup of course, so I’m practically salivating all over my keyboard looking at them and thinking about them. Totally serious. What a wonderful and easy recipe. Totally better than black-eyed pea cupcakes, haha! Ewww!!
