Happy Birthday, U.S.A.!
It's a day about fireworks and fun and picnics and sun. Add a parade of hungry ants, a few loud (and hungry) relatives,
and the tradition feels complete. Well, almost. Because this year (a first for some of you) you'll be doing
it low carb. And we're here to help.
Some great low carb recipes, and some advice from our own Jo Cordi Sica on how to handle the family gatherings! So let the party begin! Dodge the ants and feed those hungry relatives!
Gonna Fly The Flag?
Proper Display of the Flag:
The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously.
When the flag of the United States is displayed from a staff projecting horizontally or at an
angle from the window sill, balcony, or front of a building, the union of the flag should be
placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half staff. When the flag is suspended
over a sidewalk from a rope extending from a house to a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the
flag should be hoisted out, union first, from the building.
When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost
and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window, the
flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the
observer in the street.

Thin Ice Hard-Lemon Malt Beverage!
There's a new beverage on the shelves that low-carbers
who wish to indulge a bit won't want to miss out on. It's called Thin Ice, and it's
a Citrus-flavored malt beverage. New from Long Beach Brewing Company, Thin Ice is surprisingly refreshing. Several of our tasters who are not beer drinkers
actually enjoyed this beverage quite a lot.
Their slogan, "90 calories, 1 carb, zero guilt" is
a very appropriate one, as they are less than half the carbs of Michelob Ultra (2.6 carbs,
95 calories), the previous low-carb winner. If you were a fan of Mike's Hard Lemonade (which
comes in at a whopping 36 carbs, and 260 calories,) you're gonna love the new Thin Ice.
You might have guessed that Thin Ice is sugar free, but better yet, it's sweetened with
Splenda! So it's refreshingly and lightly sweet with no "off-taste" at all. It contains
4.2 percent alcohol, (about what most light beers offer up.)
Thin Ice is available in 12-oz glass bottles (by the six-pack) at more and more groceries. And it's now
showing up in bars and restaurants. I'm hearing commercials for it (..."Thin Ice — Get On It") and
I see this alternative carb-legal drink getting a lot of attention. Yes... Thin Ice has squeezed all of the guilt out of hard-lemon malt beverages... deliciously!
