If a cup of Belly Rub Blend isn't enough to entice you, perhaps the brand's charitable efforts might: 20 percent of all profits are donated to rescue organizations that provide safe havens to dogs between homes.

2. D’Vash Organics
If you're growing bored with honey, you'll definitely want to keep this line of date syrups at the top of your list. These superfood sweeteners can be added to tea, coffee and oatmeal — and they contain 25 percent less sugar than honey.
Plus, dates — the star ingredient in D'Vash's syrups and bars — are a great source of antioxidants, mainly carotenoids and phenolics, according to a March 2014 study in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine.
"Using date syrup as a sweetener can also provide fiber and minerals to your diet," Holly Klamer, RDN, explains. Though, keep in mind that date syrup still counts as a source of added sugar, so you'll want to use it in moderation. But, unlike white sugar, you do get some health benefits with date syrup, Klamer says.
This Labor Day weekend, D'Vash Organics is offering 35 percent off with the code LABOR35 at checkout. This sale lasts from Sept. 2 until Sept. 9.

3. Blue Circle Foods
Blue Circle has you covered with wild-caught seafood that's also sustainably sourced, so go ahead and stock up on salmon burgers, Atlantic cod and Pacific white shrimp.
And if you have picky eaters in your family, not to worry: The brand's fish-shaped cod or salmon patties might pique their interest.
"Because fish is an important source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats in our diet, choosing fish that is caught in a sustainable way protects our oceans and ensures a healthy supply of seafood in the future," Blatner tells us.
Add some sustainably sourced seafood to your plate and use the code SAVE15 at checkout to enjoy a 15 percent discount on your order this LDW. This sale lasts from Sept. 1 to Sept. 15.

HUROM is sure to be your new BFF in the kitchen, as its line of appliances will create nutrient-dense smoothies, dips and juices in a matter of minutes.
HUROM's slow juicer extracts every last drop of juice from fruits and veggies, which helps avoid food waste. Using a slow juicer has its share of health perks, too: "It also allows for fiber, vitamins and antioxidants to be left in juices, and this helps slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream," Blatner says.
If you prefer a blender, the Hexa Power High Speed Blender is 30 percent off this weekend. "The HUROM high-power blender is a smart kitchen gadget to help you get more fruits and vegetables easily in your day," Klamer says.
"When you don't have time to sit down and eat a balanced meal, you can make a smoothie with multiple servings of produce, protein and other boosts like chia and flax seeds," she says. "You can also use it to make healthier sweets like ice cream from just yogurt, blueberries and a touch of optional honey."
This sale lasts until Sept. 6, so grab your favorites before it's too late.
