Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - 5/18/19 - New High Tech Food and Drink

Rick is always on the lookout for the latest in food and drinks..

Technology now comes into play with what we put into our body. As summer approaches, here are some new offerings to consider.

Have a listen to Rick and Sully

Sesame seeds are more sustainable than other seeds and nuts because the crop can grow in moisture or heat-stressed environments. On average, sesame seeds take about 125 days from planting to harvest, while other sources of nondairy milk, like tree nuts, take years.
Sesame is also a natural source of vital minerals and amino acids and has many health benefits from normalizing blood pressure and balancing hormones to boosting liver function and reducing vulnerability to breast and colon cancer, among others.

Hope & Sesame took 24 months of research and development to create the ideal nutritional balance, consistency and taste. We would welcome sending you some sesamemilks to try. If appropriate, we’d also welcome going a giveaway or discount for your readers.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Hurricanes and High Tech Food

How healthy do you eat?

Rick steps up to the plate this week, with some healthy food and some app tips for following and preparing for the hurricane season...

Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma.  It looks like a busy hurricane season

Rick has two apps here to make sure you are ready.... have a listen:



1. Hurricane by American Red Cross
 
This award-winning, free iOS and Android app not only tracks and forecasts the hurricanes, it also explains how to make and execute an emergency plan and how to use social media, text, or email to tell others you’re safe during and after a storm.



2. NOAA SuperRes Radar US by Shuksan Software

This iOS app is aimed at weather enthusiasts and boasts high resolution graphics four times more detailed than other apps as well as full text warnings from the National Weather Service.
Multiple map styles and different view options make this app a good one for serious trackers.
This third-party app is not an official platform of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the National Weather Service.
As with any app that relies on mapping software, these hurricane trackers should be used sparingly as maps can drain battery power quickly, which could be catastrophic in an emergency situation. Turn off when not in use.
In addition to SuperRes Level 2 radar, NOAA RadarUS+ offers access to 3 km hourly forecast radar and the following features:
- 3 and 6 day precipitation and pressure forecasts from NOAA weather models
- Temperature overlay
- Snow/mixed precipitation display (only on 1km base reflectivity radar layer)
- 7 day forecasts and current conditions -- just press and hold for a second on the radar map.
- Severe weather (flash flood, tornado, and severe thunderstorm) warnings. Tap on a warning box to display the full warning message from the National Weather Service. Note: these are *not* push alerts. The app must be open to view the warnings.
- Cloud cover and satellite imagery for the continental United States
- Advanced radar layers (echo tops, composite reflectivity, and storm total precipitation).
- Play, pause, and step animations
- Fast zoom in and zoom out
- Choice of radar palettes

Rick and Sully talk a little food this week for you and your dog.

Have a listen:

1.  Fresh Pet Dog Food

According to The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, over 50% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese, but by incorporating fresher, less processed foods into your pet’s diet, along with proper exercise, Freshpet and Dr. Katy Nelson believe we can overcome this life-threatening disease.

"Nothing is more important than exercise and a proper diet for you and your pet,” says vet, Dr. Katy Nelson.

“The more we can do to help motivate pet parents to spend quality time exercising with their pets benefits all of us. We hope everyone will join us in walking our way towards better health.”

Freshpet has a single-minded mission – to improve the lives of dogs and cats everywhere through the power of fresh, natural food.  Packed with vitamins and proteins, Freshpet foods offer fresh meats, poultry, and vegetables farmed locally. The Freshpet Kitchens then thoughtfully prepare these natural ingredients and everyday essentials, cooking them in small batches at lower temperatures to preserve key nutrients. That way, your pet gets the best. Freshpet refrigerated foods and treats are kept cool from the moment they are made until they arrive at Freshpet refrigerators in your local market.

Freshpet foods are available in select mass, grocery, natural food, club, and pet specialty retailers across the United States and Canada. From the care Freshpet takes to source their ingredients and make their food, to the moment it reaches your home, Freshpet’s integrity, transparency and social responsibility are the way they like to run their business.  To learn more, visit www.freshpet.com.
