Thirst. Everyone gets it and when it hits, it must be satisfied. So, the next time your fluid balance is off, treat it to an antioxidant-filled, fresh-squeezed carrot juice or an Orange Mango Passion. Need something with a little less, uh, juice? Try a Blueberry Oatcake, Reduced-fat Cranberry Orange Loaf, or maybe a Chunky Strawberry-a blend of bananas, creamy peanut butter, non-fat yogurt, soymilk, organic granola and strawberries. A spoon is highly recommended.

The Gaucho brings unique Brazilian flair to your table, serving large pieces of skewered steak. Prepared with a sea salt rub, they proceed to slice it onto your plate. They do, of course, offer plenty of other skewered favorites such as marinated chicken, lamb steak, ham, shrimp and even pineapple.
