Ultima Replenisher is an advanced, balanced electrolyte drink that provides highly effective hydration using only clean ingredients, electrolytes and no sugar, calories, or carbs.

The World of Ginger
Exploring how ginger is used around the world, may open up your world to the possibilities os ginger!
Ginger is a fruit-of-all-trades, it is used in many forms. Ginger is enjoyed fresh, dried, ground into a powder, frozen, turned into a liquid or pickled. Because of the many forms that it can take on, it is popular in countries all around the world.
In Asian Countries, Ginger is used as an ingredient in many types of meals. As well as enjoyed along side the meal. Originated in China, Ginger has also been used for its medicinal properties such as aiding in digestion.
Inspired from Japan, but enjoyed around the world, ginger is an important condiment to go along with sushi. This is due to digestive aid properties, but also more importantly is powerful ability to cleanse the pallet between bites so that each piece of fish can be enjoyed.
In the U.S. it is more common to enjoy ginger when visiting an Asian restaurant, however; with companies like Prince Of Peace packaging it up so nicely, it’s a lot easier to enjoy it at home on a more regular basis.
Continuing our journey South, Mexico uses ginger in red enchilada sauce, moles and pipians.
Ginger is also enjoyed in many Carribean dishes, though it isn’t native, the climate is perfect for Ginger cultivation. As a result the Caribbean is famous for jerk ginger and ginger beer.
One thing that the entire world has in common when enjoying ginger is using it as a confectionary in candies, cakes and pastries.
Prince of Peace had a vision of bringing ginger into our homes in delightfully packaged bites blended with delicious flavors for everyone to enjoy it. They bring the world of ginger right to you.

You’ve probably heard the phrase many parts are edible…well, with an acorn, it seems the entire nut can be used. Not necessarily just to eat, but it’s shell and tannins can be used as well.
The unheralded acorn is a very sustainable food source providing nutrients essential to maintain a healthy body. It can help improve digestion, reduces symptoms to help manage Asthma, inhibits an enzyme reaction which contributes to diabetes management, boosts bone health with an abundance of minerals, improves metabolic activity, plus the tannins extracted from the seeds can be used to topically reduce inflammations and rashes.
Miracle nut? Well…It just has a lot going for it.
The tannins are used as an ingredient in ink. The shell can be used for animal feed.
And, there’s a lot more.
The Acorn Story:
“Living in Thousand Oaks for over 25 years, we planted oak trees to make a forest, we visited the rocks where the Chumash ground their flour. Each Fall acorns fall into swimming pools and are in parking lots smashed on the asphalt. And then you look at your cereal and your bread and realize how far it has travelled to feed you when you could be a “locavoire” and do what the Chumash who have lived tens of thousand of years did, eat acorns which grow in this area. As our journey for sourcing branched out, we found that acorns have been eaten for thousands of years in South Korea, China, Spain, and Greece. And, there are sources for high-quality, gluten free, kosher acorn sources in these countries. So, as we develop our local acorn source we are able to bring you Gluten Free Goodness today.”

“Ever since I was a child, food has been a fundamental part of how I experience the world and connect with others”. ~Founder Eat-fficient
The Eat-fficient Story:
When I was 4, I remember watching my father chop vegetables while I sat on the kitchen counter and helping my parents bring each plate to the dinner table. These moments of connecting defined my love of cooking throughout childhood.
When I was 12, I opened up Brookie’s Cookies and baked every day after school, often sharing these sweet treats with my family!
When I left for college, my parents were confident in my ability to take care of myself because my father taught me how to cook almost everything.
Now as an adult, I enjoy nothing more than cooking for others and sharing food with friends. Even when I am stressed out, it’s well known that I can most likely be found in the kitchen baking my old school recipe of chocolate chip cookies.
Before starting this platform and service, I continued to hear busy professionals and parents talk about the difficulty of getting proper meals on the table, yet I knew from my own experience as a long-time foodie and nutritional consultant that there was another way. I realized that all these people needed was a little guidance, a push in the right direction. With a few simple tools, cooking would no longer be seen as a stressful chore and instead as an efficient and easeful part of their daily lives. It is my goal to teach others how to eat well, thus defying the stigma that meal prep sucks and that eating for our health is challenging.
This is also a space for some of our favorite foodies- from farmers to ranchers and artisans- to come together to showcase their products.
