Teffola Nutty Granola by Tenera Grains was born.Claire grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere in southern Michigan. Teffola started from necessity. Dwindling crop prices put her Michigan family farm at risk and her father had to adapt. So he started growing teff – a tiny ancient grain from Ethiopia with mighty amounts of protein and iron. Claire added the teff to high quality ingredients, sweetened it with maple syrup and
What is Teffola? Teff + Granola = Teffola
What people love about Teffola is the hearty and rich taste due to the variety of ingredients. There’s no one flavor that dominates – no sickeningly sweet or artificial fruit tasting flavor. There is maple syrup in Teffola, but it’s not just maple syrup that you taste. The nuttiness of teff blends with the almonds, walnuts and buckwheat. Then the pumpkin and sunflower seeds come through with a hint of coconut highlighted by the coconut oil. Finally, the perfect balance of sweetness from maple syrup and tartness from dried cranberries comes through leaving you digging in for your next bite.
Teffola Nutty Granola crumbles perfectly into a bowl of yogurt and berries. It adds crunch to a steaming bowl of oatmeal and when those mid afternoon munchies hit, is perfectly satisfying on its own.
When you open a bag of Teffola, you’ll be able to smell how fresh it is. The Teffola is packaged as soon as it cools. Tenera Grains believes a shorter shelf life makes kind of food taste better and is better for you when it’s fresh. She is not interested in granola that has a shelf life of one year to maximize profits. And she is really not interested in dry stale granola with only a handful of ingredients. The date that the Teffola was baked is stamped right onto the package. Breakfast lovers deserve a tasty, healthy, and fresh granola and Teffola delivers all three. Can your old granola say that?

Helping Handles Transfer Belt is the most innovative patient assistance device since the Gait™ belt. It revolutionizes fall prevention, transferring, and ambulation assistance. This transfer belt increases stability and confidence by giving the caregiver and patient helping handles to hold onto. Helping Handles ergonomically correct harness helps to avoid back injuries by keeping your back straight while helping the patient to stand or when lifting a person up off the floor or bed. This device can also be utilized as a vital piece of emergency equipment as well as a physical therapy tool for stretching, isometric and resistance training. The Helping Handles Transfer Belt is made with 600 pound nylon webbing and mid durometer PVC handles. With easy to grip ergonomically designed handles, it is completely adjustable and machine washable. This ambulatory aid is used to mobilize and move patients and assist with walking, transferring, and handling fall risk patients.
Helping Handles makes transferring, ambulating, lifting, and repositioning easier and more controlled. It has the potential to eliminate scratches and lacerations to the caregiver from the person being assisted because they had nothing to hold on to. By placing a second Helping Handles harness under the arms or buttocks of the patient, the caregiver has a better, more ergonomic lifting position providing more stability and security to the person being assisted.
When used properly, the Helping Handles Transfer Belt can help prevent caregiver back injuries while providing stability to the person being assisted. This will drastically help in the battle against falls in the patients facility or home.
- Increase Stability
- Increase Confidence
- Ergonomically Correct
- Keep Back Straight
- Avoid Back Injuries
- Using a regular gait belt to lift all or most of a patient’s body weight is not an acceptable practice.
- Belts that are too wide may affect a patient’s ability to lean forward. Narrow, unpadded belts may dig into the patient’s waist.
- Gait belts without handles encourage the caregiver to grip the belt with a clenched fist. This generally causes the knuckles to press into the patient’s side, resulting in discomfort.
Every EMT, nurse, physical therapist, and caregiver should have a Helping Handles Harness Transfer Belt for ease of lifting and provide confidence for the patient.
10-Toxin-Free Nail Polish that glimmers, shimmers and shines.Northern Nail Polish founder, KC Springberg spends her days happily stirring up bottles of
The Traverse City, Michigan resident began making her own nail polish in 2012 when she learned about exposure to chemicals like endocrine disrupters and carcinogens that are found in many store-bought polishes. She loved painting her nails too much to quit and wondered if there were other options. After experimenting with formulas, she finally found a formula that was 10-toxin-free, which means it doesn’t have the seven toxins found in store bought polishes like toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and formaldehyde.
KC focused on producing glitter nail polishes. To her it was all about holographic, shimmery and sparkly because that’s what she liked. But people asked for more matte colors so she made a whole line of that too. The solid colors were added in 2017 with many of them inspired by the natural beauty of Northern Michigan and the people, places and things that exemplify the Great Lakes state. With nail polish names like Petoskey Stone, Beach Glass, Great Lakes State of Mind, Hand As Your Map, Michigander, Lake Superior Agate, Northern Lights, and Pure Michigan….those are some of the best seller polishes.
Women of all ages, from kids who love the neons to working women who are looking for something subtler, love Northern Nail Polish and wear them with the confidence of knowing they are 10-toxin free. The bottles come with the cute turquoise Michigan logo on the front, and the names of the shades are visible from the top of each bottle’s cap.
So what is 10-Toxin-Free Nail Polish?
- No Formaldehyde
- No Camphor
- No Triphenyl Phosphate
- No Ethyl Tosylamide
- No Xylene
- No Toluene
- No Dibutyl Phthalate
- Phthalate Free
- Paraben Free
- Fragrance Free
- Cruelty Free
That means that all of the nail polishes are not only made without the 3 common chemicals found in nail polishes (Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde), but also without 7 other very dangerous chemicals (Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP, Ethyl Tosylamide, Parabens, Phthalates, and Xylene). Northern Nail Polishes are FREE of these TEN chemicals. You should never have to sacrifice health for beauty.
Northern Nail Polish uses the most natural, vegan ingredients known to form a long lasting, chip resistant nail polish that can be easily removed by regular polish remover. And, because Northern Nail Polish uses natural mica as the colorant to the nail polish, you don’t have to worry about stains being left on your nails or any animal derived ingredients in the nail polishes.
Northern Nail Polish has something for everyone – the crazy colors for people who like to be out of the box and polish for women who work in an office and just want something sheer such as ‘Barely There,’ which is a nice neutral pink and that one flies off the shelf. There’s even a base coat, a top coat, and a ridge filling coat.
People buy it first because of the toxic free formula, and the name or the color. But then they keep coming back because they love the quality and the beauty of Northern Nail Polish.

List Your Life: A Modern-Day Memoir is a new book that is a beautiful blend of journal and memoir written by Angela Berent, a Michigan author/teacher/mom, and designed by Lisa Michele Carpenter, a Michigan graphic designer.Always want to write but never have time? This is the journal for you!
In short, quick lists of three, the reader can respond to various topics and create their own modern-day memoir! List Your Life: A Modern-Day Memoir is written in journal format under the premise that no one has time to write, but everyone has a story to tell. Together with lists that the author has written, readers will find inspirational quotes and lots of space to write – beautifully arranged among the watercolor graphics. Unconventional, for sure, but it’s just the thing for today’s fast-paced life.
Many people don’t view themselves as writers. They think it’s a special skill that only others hold – yet we all have stories, and those memories are worth recording and sharing. Angela absolutely recognizes how difficult writing memories can be for someone who doesn’t view their self as a writer. That brought forth the entire focus of the project: making writing accessible, easy and pain free. Writing down all the details of all the memories would be wonderful, but it’s just not practical for a modern-day life. Instead, take a look at a topic and jot a few lines. Some days you may elaborate and lengthen your response, but many times, you’ll only have time for a list of three. And that’s enough. The List Your Life: A Modern-Day Memoir Journal will help you capture your memories and achievements.
This List Your Life: A Modern-Day Memoir Journal goes beyond intimidating blank lines with topics that range from fun and light to deep and compelling – all created to invite readers to interact and record their own lists, leading them to recognize the beauty of their memories and realize their achievements.
Before Age 55by Angela K. BerentAs List Your Life was percolating in my mind, I heard a very important piece of advice: Everyone should write their stories before age 55. It was a tremendous jolt to my thinking. Ralph Fletcher had long been influential on my teaching practice with his straightforward approach to writing with students – he is all about making it accessible and fun. This particular sentiment was a key to motivating me to write. With his words, the project began to take shape.I thought about my grandmother who had recently passed away, and I wished I knew more of her memories – I immediately knew that I’d missed an opportunity. I thought of my grandparents who’d been gone a long time, and I thought of how much I would have liked to have known about when they were kids, travels, their proudest moments, stories about my parents – any old thing from their lives.Age 55. Of course, I thought of my parents. At that time, they were 68 and 63, and I realized that I knew so much about them, but there were so many things still to learn. Through the lens as their little girl, the daughter they raised, I wondered about them beyond their position as parents. What of their life aside from me, my brother, our children? I distinctly remember dwelling on that side of things for a long while and growing more curious about their most important memories.But then I was really struck: What about ME? I have a hard time realizing my age sometimes. I get stuck in the daughter phase, that role of my life, and I forget I’m in my 40’s! Age 55 is surprisingly close. That thought launched me forward into this writing project. A sense of responsibility fell over me as I thought of my own sons – I wanted to share my memories.Fifty-five years old is a good point in life. Memories are fresh, health is probably pretty good, kids are likely grown (or getting there), and you have enough wisdom to know what’s behind you along with a sense of what’s to come. That other side of 55 is a bit intimidating, and getting the words on the page while life is relatively smooth makes sense.I knew that I couldn’t ask anyone to share their stories if I didn’t have the nerve to tell my own. This advice, to write before 55, propelled me forward to develop a format that would work for others to collect and share their stories. Thus, a journal of lists to make memory-collecting a little easier.
