Wine Hug

By Bob on March 8, 2012 5:51 AM

I've got a question for you. Have you hugged your wine today? Well, then you definitely need the Wine Hug!

The Wine Hug is a new gadget that's so rugged and durable that anyone can travel with a bottle of wine.


It's an inflatable, re-usable wine wrap that securely and safely "hugs" just about any wine bottle. It's perfect for taking a bottle along on your next trip, because you can wrap up your wine - put it in your checked baggage - and forget about it until you land.


It's incredibly easy to use, because it "self-inflates" like that air mattress you just bought at the sporting goods store. There's nothing to blow up - just unscrew the cap - and it inflates to securely "hug" your wine in a protective bubble.


Just unscrew the cap when you're through using the Wine Hug and it will deflate and go flat for easy storage between trips.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
