Rancho Santa Fe Foodies Gear Up for Dried Plum Digestive Health Month


Rancho Santa Fe foodies are undoubtedly gearing up for the January 1st kickoff of California Dried Plum Digestive Health Month. It’s a great time to pick up plums at one of San Diego County’s many farms, grocery stores and specialty retailers and experiment with some new, intense flavors. On top of that, our state’s dried and fresh plums happen to be very nutritious. So flavor won’t be all that our region’s families will be getting.

According to the California Dried Plums Board’s research, the delectable fruit contains disease fighting phytochemicals, antioxidants and a whole lot of dietary fiber. That’s partially why they are part of Digestive Health Month events. Additional information about improving one’s digestive health with California grown foods may be obtained through any number of our region’s healthcare professionals.

So where are Rancho Santa Fe foodies finding California grown plums for their grand experiments? The extended list of locations includes, but isn’t confined to the following businesses:

A more complete list may be found by visiting the San Diego County Farm Bureau’s website. It also contains a harvest calendar, which shows that fresh plums are in season from May until September. Dried plums, on the other hand, are available in our region year round. We’d suggest that Rancho Santa Fe foodies consider checking the local supermarkets’ shelves for them the next time that they’re out and about shopping.

Rancho Santa Fe foodies in need of a few good, dried plum recipes will find a wealth of them available through the afore mentioned, California Dried Plums Board’s website. Great choices for those Rancho Santa Fe families that want to introduce the kids’ to the tasty fruit are dried plum snack bars, packrat cookies, plumkins, plum raspberry cream brownie cups and chewy plum spiced cookies. They’d make wonderful lunch box additions when the kids return to school later in the month.

Rancho Santa Fe: Come and Celebrate Christmas and New Year’s on the Water


Throughout the month of December 2014, Rancho Santa Fe residents will have ample chances to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s on, or near the chilly waters of San Diego Bay. Some of the events are being sponsored by public entities and others are being offered by private businesses. With that in mind, here’s a look at some of what the Big Bay area’s venues have planned:

Holiday Cruises with Refreshments

Hornblower™ Cruises & Events is sponsoring a number of events on the water. They kickoff on Friday, December 5th with thematic lunch and sunset dinner cruises. Both are due to depart from the Grape Street Pier and continue on throughout the month. The lunch cruises are slated to be two hours long and include seated lunches, a dessert buffet and a champagne or sparkling cider toast. The dinner cruises are longer and more elaborate. They are slated to run 3.5 hours long and include a three-course meal, dancing and the afore mentioned, celebratory toast. But that’s not all. The company will also be offering champagne brunch, Christmas, New Year’s and marine mammal focused cruises in December too. Making advance reservations for any of the Hornblower™ events is paramount and prices are likely to vary per cruise date.

Big Bay Balloon Parade

The Big Bay Balloon Parade is another event that Rancho Santa Fe residents may want to plan on attending. It’s set to take place at 3 p.m. the day after Christmas. The parade is part of the Annual National University Holiday Bowl 2014, which is actually a nationally recognized, sporting event. Scheduled to be broadcast live, it is expected to include a bevy of balloons, live entertainment, amazing floats and snippets of two, very different sporting events. They are the Bumble Bee Seafoods’® 5K and the Wienerschnitzel Wiener® Nationals.

San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl

Of course the Holiday Bowl isn’t the only football event taking place in December 2014. Rancho Santa Fe residents may also get their tailgate on the evening of Tuesday, December 23rd. That’s scheduled to be the kickoff day of the much loved, San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl. Football fans hoping to spend the holidays cheering for their teams at either nationally televised event should think about purchasing their stadium tickets online now.
