NaturOli Review + Coupon Code

I’m so excited to be able to write this review. Even though its funny that I’m excited over laundry detergent, shampoo, and soap, but the mom in me is one happy camper. Finding products that are truly safe to use around children can be hard. Some claim to be safe, but once you get down to the nitty gritty in the ingredients, some can be debatable.

I bring you…  NaturOli..

I was happy when I came across their website. They have a lot of great options. The products I tried were Soap Nuts, Liquid Laundry Detergent, Pretreat Laundry Stick, Shampoo Bar, Liquid Shampoo and a Cleansing Bar.

The ingredients in all the products are pure and natural. It was nice to be able to pronounce every ingredient and even know what it was! NaturOli are all about preserving the environment. The use all recyclable and biodegradable packaging and they take all the steps necessary to ensure and promote eco-friendly practices.

Speaking of the environment, I want to start with one of the products I was on the edge about first. I really wanted to like it because here in America alone, we dump thousands of gallons of shampoo down the drain daily just from rinsing it out of our hair in the shower. Shampoo contains chemical after chemical and our water treatment plants aren’t  designed to eliminate these chemicals, so all of these harmful chemicals make it back into our water supply. Scary….   So having safe alternatives, I love..

This product was NaturOli’s Secret Shampoo Bar.

As a hairstylist, I was stoked. I wanted to like it, because it would give me another option to use in the salon. However, my experience was a little different.

I got in the shower and had the bar in my hand. I tried rubbing it in my hands and then into my hair… that didn’t work well for me. I found it worked best if I just rubbed the bar directly onto my head. It was so smooth.  It wasn’t extremely foamy, which is a positive thing. Plus, you can really tell where your missing to wash. It felt very conditioning, probably because it has coconut oil and olive oil. I didn’t feel like I needed to condition, but out of habit, I used just a little..  this was a mistake!

I had to wash my hair again the next morning. It felt greasy, like I didn’t get out all the conditioner. So, I rewashed with the shampoo bar and then blow dried. Once again, I wasn’t excited. My hair looked frizzy..but I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt. I’m so glad I did. As the day went on, the better my hair looked. I had volume like WOAH!

 20160726_124812Last night, after my husbands shower, he mentioned he used the shampoo bar on his beard. He said he was pleased because the little bubbles it creates really gets in and cleans! I wouldn’t of even thought about using it for facial hair but it makes sense and could eliminate beard oils!

I read on their site that it takes a few washes to really get used to it, because it takes a little bit of time to eliminate all the stuff that’s in our hair that shouldn’t be there. Which explains why my hair felt the way it did. They are right though, the more I have used it, the better my hair looks and feels and it hasn’t faded my color one bit!

I used the liquid Nut Shampoo on my daughters hair. Her hair does tangle very easily, but I do feel as if I was able to brush through her hair easier! This was a win win for us. No tears and a happy child!


The other bar I tried was the Cleansing Bar. Using the “soap” from the soap nuts with beneficial oils really makes this cleansing bar great! It left my skin feeling soft and clean. The soap it creates is very creamy feeling and I knew it would be hydrating, which my skin always needs. I am a sufferer of psoriasis and my skin can freak out with certain products. With the cleansing bar, it was calming and actually helped with the redness!

20160724_213951_resized_1


Next, the Pretreat Stain Stick. With having 2 younger kids, comes with a ton of stained clothes. Every meal, every step outside, will lead to a stain. One of my kids favorites though to make would be a fruit stain. Blueberries, blackberries and strawberries are the most popular. Plus, the hardest to get out. So I wanted to try this stain stick on a fruit stain. I didn’t have to wait long for a stain to happen. This is a strawberry stain. It happened at a birthday party and it dried and sat for a good 5+ hours before it was even touched with the pretreat. I followed the directions and wet the stick and rubbed it on the stain. Waited 5 mins and threw it in the wash. I was shocked when it came out. Most of the fruit stains don’t come out on the first wash, but this one did! I was ecstatic. Check it out!

IMG_20160725_223508_resized_1


I loved the Extreme 18X concentrated liquid detergent. It is a very concentrated soap berry detergent that is gluten, corn and soy free. No sulfates, parabens, phthalates, phosphates, petro-chemicals, dyes or chemical brighteners. 100% fragrance free and great for sensitives skin and noses!

20160722_085503_resized_1

I was surprised when I read that you could use it for more than just detergent! You can mix it to make household cleaners, carpet cleaner, dish soap and even to wash your fruits and veggies! How many laundry detergents can you do that with?

100% Non Toxic!!  I love it!


When making the concentrated liquid detergent, they use Soap Nuts/Berries.

20160726_115439_resized

Which you can actually make your own liquid detergent and I’ll show you how in another post, but it is all based on a small nut! I am a huge fan of soap nuts. They are my all time favorite for laundry soap.I am very pleased with NaturOli’s soap nuts. The quality is great and they clean really well.

You only need about 5 or 6 nuts and you throw them into a muslin bag and toss it into the wash. It stays in there the whole cycle until the load is done. Like I mentioned before, with all the stains my house sees. The soap nuts do the trick!

20160726_115537_resized

You’ll want to find your nuts after every wash though. They can easily get lost in the clothes.

They don’t have a scent, which is okay! I usually add a drop of essential oil into the wash just to give a good smell naturally!

I also noticed with most soap nuts, you get a longer life from your nuts if you use cold water. Not as much soap is released with cold, but it still cleans well.

Overall the soap nuts are probably my favorite NaturOli product. I can do so much with it. Make cleaners, laundry soap, veggie cleaner and other household uses. Plus, when I’m done with it, I can put them in my compost to help add nutrients to the soil and plants! Very cool!

If you would like to get all of the products I mention, I have a special for you!

NaturOli has a great set with all of these included HERE!

AND you can get an additional 10% OFF by using the code:   ohmyorganics16

 

I hope you guys take the time and check out NaturOli. I promise if you’re like me and love non toxic ways of living…. this is for you!

Sun Basket Vietnamese Cod with Rice Noodles and Mango Salad Recipe and Review

One of the meals I received from Sun Basket was a Vietnamese cod over rice noodles and mango salad on the side. They sent all the ingredients needed to make this dish, The only things I needed from my own pantry were cooking oil (I chose an organic olive oil), salt and pepper.

Here’s how it went!

Ingredients:

2 6-ounce Pacific Cod Fillets

Marinade Base (fish sauce-turmeric)

1/4lb rice noodles

2 scallions

Fresh Dill

1 ounce roasted peanuts

1 mango

1 lime

Mango Dressing (fish sauce-lime juice-water)

1/2 tsp kimchi chile flakes

Pineapple-Anchovy Sauce (pineapple-anchovies-brown sugar-fish sauce-lime juice)

20160725_134806_resized

Here are all the ingredients Sun Basket sent to use.

20160720_213343_resized

This was pretty quick to make! I was surprised how easy it was! Plus, what I love is that I can make this again and again, because the ingredients aren’t hard to find!  Trust me… this one, I’ll be making again!

First, I prepped the cod. Cutting the fillets into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

20160722_180334_resized

Then, in a bowl, combined the marinade base (fish sauce + turmeric) with 2 to 3 tablespoons of organic olive oil. It tends to separate quickly, so you may have to whisk or use an emulsion blender stick. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the mix to use later with the noodles.

20160722_180711_resized

 Add the cod pieces to the bowl and gently stir to coat. Let stand while you prepare the noodles and mango salad.

20160722_181332_resized

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop it from cooking. Rinse again with very hot tap water to remove the excess starch, then rinse a final time with cold water to firm them up.

20160722_190011_resized

Trim the root ends from the scallions, cut the scallions into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Remove any touch stems from the dill leaves.

Coarsely chop the peanuts.

Peel and pit the mango, Cut into chunks or slices.

Zest the lime, juice half and cut the other half into wedges.

20160722_182848_resized

In a bowl, combine the mango slices, lime zest and juice, mango dressing, and as much kimchi flakes you want. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.

20160722_183129_resized

In a pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot, but not smoking. Add the cod with it’s marinade and cook until the fish begins to turn opaque, 1-2 minutes.

20160722_191439_resized

Turn the cod, add the scallions to the pan and cook till the cod is cooked through, 1-2 minutes longer.

20160722_191451_resized

Stir in the dill and remove from the heat.

20160722_191619_resized

To serve, transfer the noodles onto a plate or bowl. Spoon some of the reserved marinade over the noodles and top with the cod, scallions and dill. Garnish with the peanuts, and serve with the mango salad and pineapple-anchovy sauce on the side.

20160722_193239_resized

How amazing does that look?? It was so delicious! The cod was flaky, the sauce was very bright and flavorful. The noodles absorbed a lot of the flavors. I didn’t need to use much of the pineapple-anchovy sauce, but it was a nice addition. The mango salad was sweet and salty.

20160722_193224_resized

I will be making this again! It was very filling. Sun Basket does a great job on giving you the correct amount of ingredients for a full meal.I wouldn’t change a thing!

Kabana Sunscreen Review

Well, I live in Ohio… You never know what the weather will be like everyday. All I do know is, that if it’s summer, it’s going to be hot outside. Not just hot, but humid and gross. If it were up to me on most days, I’d just stay inside all day. Since I have children, this really isn’t an option for me. They want to play outside in that super hot sun, but as I’ve posted before HERE, one of the real concerns isn’t the sun..it’s what sunscreen you use. Lately, I’ve been struggling to find a good sunscreen, one that protects you from the sun, safe for babies and kids and where you don’t have to reapply every half hour, because it melts right off.

I decided I wanted to try Kabana Sunscreen. Going to their website, first off they were all about educating. Talking about how our skin is our largest organ and how we need to protect it without the chemicals.. This had me excited. As I ran down their list of sunscreens, I was pleased. They had a little something for everyone. Original, Tinted, Water Resistant, Lip Balm and even a SPF Body Wash!


I got the Original for myself and the water resistant for my kiddos.

20160713_173219The original GreenScreen is SPF 30. It’s Organic, Non Nano Particle, Chemical and Fragrance Free and Biodegradable. It was easy to squeeze out, smooth to go on and covered well.

The  BaliBlock is what I used on my kids. It smells like vanilla and you can even see the vanilla bean in the sunscreen. Its also Non Nano Particle and Organic. It is water resistant. It is very thick to go on.I found it easier to rub the stick in my hand first then apply to my 3 year old. My 1 year old, she didn’t mind me rubbing the stick over her legs and arms, then rubbing it in. It is very white on the skin. I choose not to rub it in completely, as this would take you forever. Plus, I think the zinc oxide being on top of the skin really helps protect from the sun. Think about old school life guards with their white noses!

20160713_173230 Both of these sunscreens are safe for all ages including babies under 6 months old. Both are to be reapplied every 2 hours and initially 15 mins before being exposed to the skin. Most importantly..check out those ingredients! Who can complain with that? So exciting!

So here we are playing outside! Playing in the water table in the morning and swimming in the afternoon!

IMG_20160712_105834

20160713_130643

Oh my precious water babies!! They are very fair skinned like myself. Plus, their dad has red hair. So, being burnt by the sun can happen very easily for all of us.

BUT…… after using Kabana Sunscreen while we were outside… NO SUNBURN!!  YAY!!

I am so excited and happy by this. Trying out new sunscreens can be a little nerve wrecking for this momma. Kabana came through with flying colors!

THANK YOU KABANA!!

Sun Basket Unboxing Review

I can’t tell you how excited I was to open my Sun Basket box when the Fed Ex driver dropped it off. I was running around trying to get my children situated so I could get that bad boy opened.

If you don’t know what Sun Basket is, they are a meal delivery service based out of the West Coast that offers meals that are all organic, containing no hormones or antibiotics, humanely raised, fresh ingredients to make some fancy looking meals! They have a lot of different options to fit all diet needs. I personally chose a steak, shrimp and cod dish to try. I got 3 meals, each having 2 servings.

I received notice on Tuesday that my package was shipped and on Wednesday it was delivered. I was very surprised to feel that the box was cool to touch. Which made me happy. I was a little nervous on how all the works, considering they are shipping meat.

20160720_212641Well, there it is! Loved the box design. I think that’s initially what made me excited. It just screams… Open Me!

20160720_212919_resizedThe Box is fully insulated and was cool to the touch. I knew everything that was inside remained the appropriate temperature throughout it’s travel. Opening you can see that all three meals have their own back of ingredients. I thought this was awesome. How much easier can it get right?

20160720_213001_resized

Under all food bags was another cooler section that had freezer packs surrounding the meat! How smart!

20160720_213012_resized

The meat looked great. The best part that they are labeled with handling instructions and when to use by. So, even if your plan isn’t to cook right away, you’ll know when you need to do it by.

It comes with all the recipe cards as well and any tips you may need when it comes to cooking your food.

20160720_212848_resized

Here are the meals that I chose.

Vietnamese Cod with Rice Noodles and Mango Salad20160720_213343_resized

HERE it is made!! YUM!

Steaks with Frying Peppers and Gremolata

20160720_213653_resized

Cuban Shrimp Mojo with Lime Roasted Vegetables20160720_213849_resized

I am so pumped to make these this weekend! I will be posting all of the recipes so if you want, you can try to recreate these in your own home!

Overall. my first impression with Sun Basket is A+ with no complaints. The quality and freshness are wonderful! Now if I can just cook all of this so it can look like it does on the card… we will be in good shape!!

 

Thank you, Sun Basket!

Homemade Non-Toxic Baby Wipes

So, as a mom I can say, baby wipes are my best friend. With every dirty face and sticky finger, I keep a stack of baby wipes near me at all times. However, the chemicals and fragrances that are in them, I have always HATED using them on my children. My poor babies would scream if I wiped them when they had a diaper rash and it took me forever to realize that the wipe was in fact making the rash worse.  Nothing like rubbing chemicals on an open wound..

There are a ton of ingredients that are hidden in baby wipes. One being formaldehyde…  You may not see it on the label… but it’s there. Formaldehyde releasers are lurking..  Look for these common ones..

  • Diazolidinyl Urea

  • DMDM Hydantoin

  • Imidazolidinyl urea

  • Quaternium-15

  • Tosylamide/Formaldehyde Resin

  • Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate

  • 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol (bronopol)

  • Polyoxymethylene Urea

  • 5-Bromo-5-Nitro-1,3 Dioxane

  • Methenamine

  • Glyoxal

  • Benzylhemiformal

How about those lovely carcinogens??  Yup..they are in there. Some to look for are Ethylene Oxide and 1,4-Dioxane..  Cancer Causing… If you can’t find those on the label. Look for these instead.

  • Bis-PEG/PPG-16/16 PEG/PPG-16/16 Dimethicone

  • Potassium Laureth Phosphate

  • Polysorbate 20

  • PEG-75 Lanolin

  • Ceteareth-20

Ya no thank you….Solution= Make Non-Toxic baby wipes!!

Thankfully, I represent a non-toxic company (Pure Haven Essentials) that offers a full line of products that makes this recipe so easy. If you do have your own favorite non-toxic, organic brand that you prefer to use.. then you can use that too 🙂

The way to make these baby wipes can not get any easier. It’s minimal ingredients and will take less than a couple minutes.

Things you will need:

20160719_174909_resized

1 roll of paper towels

A sharp knife

2 cups distilled water

A container to store wipes

1 Tbsp Non Toxic Hand Sanitizer

2 Tbsp Non Toxic Baby Wash or Shampoo

2 Tbsp Melted Organic Coconut Oil or Olive Oil

A few drops of essential oil (lavender is what I use)

Step 1. Cut Paper Towel Roll In Half with Knife

20160719_174952_resized

 

 

20160719_175016_resized

 

Step 2. Remove Cardboard from rolls

20160719_175346_resized

 

Step 3. Mix oil, shampoo, sanitizer and essential oil in water

20160719_175835_resized

Step 4. Soak both rolls of paper towels in mixture

20160719_175415_resized

Wipes are DONE! Easy Peasy! Store in an airtight container.

IMG_20160719_185305_resized

Another huge benefit to making your own baby wipes is…..  SAVING YOU MONEY!!  You may not think that it’ll save you a lot, but on average almost $400 is spent yearly on packaged baby wipes.  Making your own baby wipes, even ones that are non-toxic will only cost you around $167 a year!

Do you make you own wipes? What are you favorite wipe recipes?

Plum Organics Review

One thing that my oldest daughter always loved was cereal bars. I would give them to her, but I was never all that confident in the ingredients. High fructose corn syrup and nasty binders. Since I started “doing my homework” and learning more about food and reading labels, I realized I didn’t want to give any regular cereal bar anymore. I was happen when I came across Plum Organics Mighty 4 Nutrition Bars. These are perfect for toddlers!

20160629_114203_resized_1They are soft and chewy. They are moist enough so little kids don’t get choked up. They really taste good! If I didn’t feel bad stealing them from my daughter, I would probably throw a couple in my purse for a snack. ha ha…

 

20160629_114249_resized_1

For 70 calories, they are once again perfect for kids. I give one to my daughter when she needs a little snack before dinner to help hold her over.

Another one of my favorites from Plum Organics is the PUFFS!! I don’t know what I’d do without puffs..

20160629_114849_resized_1They are naturally flavored with strawberry and beets and they are sensory foods! Puffs are one of the first little snacks that kids usually get. Something that they can play with and eat to keep them occupied for the moment. They are a puffed grain that are small, but easy to pick up with little kid’s fingers. So, not only are they good, but they teach children to use their fingers. Pretty cool!

20160630_120216_resizedSee…she loves it! My oldest daughter who is 3, loves them just as much. Not gonna lie, I’ve had a handful or so as well. They are just fun and crunchy!

I know there are brands out there that do make “puffs”, but please… read your ingredients. Plum organics really has what you want. Not all the artificial stuff.. Modified rice, artificially flavored and dyed.  yeah ill pass..

Plum Organics doesn’t cost much more than Gerber or the store brand.. but if you compare the ingredients you’ll see what I’m talking about.

 

Do you like Plum Organics??  What is your favorite product from Plum?

Emily’s Handmade Soaps Review

I’ve always been one to support small businesses, especially ones that make crafts and products. I appreciate the time and effort they put into each thing that they create. I love to go to craft shows and one of my favorites stops are the handmade soap tables. I’ve tried some that I was not a fan of, so I was intrigued when I made a connection with Emily. Her soaps were gorgeous and I was excited to try it!

Emily‘s Handmade Soaps are handmade in small batches by Emily Davis, a longtime resident of Des Moines, WA. They use vegan-focused ingredients and include combinations of oils, butters, earth clays, and other botanical ingredients to enhance your daily bathing ritual. While the purpose of soap is to clean you, Emily‘s Handmade Soaps endeavors to make nature-inspired soaps that are lovely to look at, sensational to smell, and add a little luxury to your daily routine.

My favorite thing about Emily’s Handmade Soaps, is that she takes pride in the ingredients that she uses and carefully labels everything so you know exactly what you are getting. Plus, it helps when you can pronounce everything on the label.

When my mailman dropped off my package he said, “something smells good in there.”  He was right too. I didn’t even have to open my package to know what was inside. When I opened it, it smelled so good! I could almost tell the kinds of “flavors” or “types” they were, without looking at the label. What I love is that they aren’t made with harmful fragrances, so even though they smelled so strong, it wasn’t overwhelming. Once I got rid of synthetic fragrances in the things I used in my home, I became more sensitive to smell, I get headaches easily when things are artificially fragrant. Emily’s soaps were different. They were wonderful!

I got 2 different kinds. Grapefruit Orange and Lavender Rosemary… Aren’t they pretty??20160709_192532_resized

 

The soaps are beautifully made. They lather well and really conditioned my hands and left them extremely smooth. Next, I’ll be using this as body soap!  I have pretty sensitive skin due to psoriasis. Emily’s soaps gave me no problems at all.

I really can’t get over how pretty they are.. Emily definitely uses her own creative ways to keep things as natural as possible.

 • Natural colorants (i.e. indigo, cocoa powder, and clays)
• Essential oils and high-quality, phthalate-free fragrances
• Alternative liquids (i.e. aloe juice, coconut milk, & almond milk)
• Botanical additives (i.e. oatmeal, raspberry seeds & coffee grounds)

Original 20150222 093314

I highly suggest Emily’s Handmade Soaps.. You can read more about Emily and her soaps here

Simply Organic Laundry Review

For a while now I’ve been making my own Laundry liquid soap, but I really wanted to try a powder. As I was looking for some recipes, I came across Simply Organic Laundry’s website. The ingredients looked great and I was super excited that they were based out of Ohio! So, I decided to give it a go! Boy am I sooo pleased that I did. Upon opening the box, it smelled amazing!! I was so excited to try it!

Simply Organic Laundry powders are earth-friendly, full service laundry powder to meet all your laundry and clothes washing needs! Simply Organic Laundry is safe to use on all fabrics including baby clothing, diapers,and your delicates. Of course, Simply Organic Laundry cleans typical laundry items, as well, such as sheets, towels, active wear, pet bedding, and heavily soiled clothing.

Simply Organic Laundry has four simply natural, yet powerful, ingredients selected for their excellence in cleaning clothes throughout the ages: Soda ash (common washing soda mined from the Green River Basin in Wyoming). Soda Ash both cleans and deodorizes. Sodium Percarbonate for whitening and brightening, an enzyme mix to break down common stains, and finally, ground Soap berry. Soapberries are fruit from the Sapindus Mukorossi tree, one of the earliest known species which produces natural soap (saponin) and cleaning power. The soap berry, not only cleans, but also serves to soften your laundry in the washer and the dryer. Simply Organic Laundry is low sudsing and works for all washer types, both standard and high efficiency models. A 50oz. bag can wash 100 high efficiency loads. One tablespoon per load is all that is needed for an average load.

Simply Organic Laundry offers four, choices: Simply Naked-the original with no added oils or fragrance, Simply Baby with a delightfully soft fragrance, Simply Lavender and Simply Mint-both scented with the purest essential oils. Even the packaging is earth-friendly and biodegradable.

The instructions were pretty straight forward. 1 wooden scoop (that’s included) for a HE load and 2 scoops for a standard washer load. Plus, the wooden scoops are so adorable and fun!

 The laundry powder couldn’t of come at a better time. My two daughters were outside playing all day yesterday. My 1 year old, who can not walk yet, still crawls everywhere. They were playing in their water table, where water and dirty concrete with a crawler, doesn’t mix. Her shorts were wrecked.  The mud and dirt was so ground in, I was certain they were gonna be trash. So, I figured this would be the perfect time to try out Simply Organic Laundry Powder!  The Mint was calling my name. It smelled so good, I wanted to eat it. haha..  I can tell you though, It may smell lovely and gentle but It really did get the dirt and grime out of my daughters shorts. I was stoked!

 Today was a whole other day. Same little 1 year old and a full day playing outside…in a dress of course. Water and mud were her friends. I came home from work and the bottom of her dress was drenched and once again, She crawled around and rubbed the dirt in good. I thought, let’s put the Artisan Laundry Powder to the test again! Grabbed the Lavender, tossed in my 2 scoops and patiently waited to see the results.  As soon as I heard the buzzer I ran in.. What do ya know.. her dress was perfect again! Didn’t even look like it was sent through the ringer!

 I am so happy I found this laundry powder. It smells amazing and really gets the yuck out! My clothes smell fresh clean and look great! I will continue to buy Simply Organic Laundry powder! If you’d like ot try it you can go to:

  • Simply Organic Laundry can be purchased at any of twenty Heinen’s Grocery Stores surrounding Cleveland, Ohio and Chicago area suburbs. For locations go to www.Heinens.com

  • Pure Enchantment 19100 Old Detroit Rd. Rocky River, Ohio

Bob’s Red Mill Oatmeal Review

I love oatmeal. Its quick to make and very filling. A great grab and go breakfast. Even better, Bob’s Red Mill make these quick cooking cups that are convenient when you’re running out the door.

Upon opening the cup, I was pretty impressed. You could see all the ingredients. The Oats, cinnamon, salt, apple chunks, chia seeds and flax seeds. There weren’t bits and pieces, they were whole oats and quality ingredients!

 

This was super easy to make too. I boiled water in my percolator and filled the cup up to the designated line.

 

Put the lid on it and waited the suggested 3 minutes. However, I felt like it needed a couple more mins to fully absorb all the water. Nonetheless, it was still quick. Once it was done doing it’s thing… it looked and smelled amazing!

 

 

If you’re used to eating a packaged oatmeal, say like Quaker Oats or some other conventional brand, you’ll notice that Bob’s Red Mill is not as sweet as the others. It doesn’t have all the extra added sugars and who knows what. Which you could see the difference, because it wasn’t powdery like the conventional brands. The only thing that I may add to the Bob’s Red Mill is a little more organic cinnamon.

The nutritional facts are great! For only 270 calories that filled me up, I was excited! Pair this with a banana and breakfast is complete!

 

Overall, this is a great oatmeal! I loved the apple chunks, as they don’t skip on the quality and amount! I had a bunch in every bite!  The one thing I will add though…..please wait for it to cool! Those little apple chunks can get super hot and will burn your mouth if you’re not careful!

I will definitely keep these oatmeal cups in my pantry at all times. My husband was a huge fan of the blueberry oatmeal that they carry. They run about $1.88 at the store, which is a great price for an all natural, gluten free breakfast!

If for some reason you don’t have Bob’s Red Mill at your store, you can also purchase them here in a 12 pack of multiple flavors.

Kevita Review

 

If you have never seen or had Kevita, I suggest you head to your local grocery and see if they have it. It’s delicious! It’s bubbly and refreshing. Great to sip on and enjoy!

My husband always loves when I bring home new things for him to try….  (sarcasm at its finest right there).. When we got home the other night and I was unloading groceries, I told him I had something new for him to try. He wasn’t at all excited but he is a good sport. He is a huge fan of anything lime, I thought the Lime Mint Coconut would be right up his alley. He popped the cap and took a big gulp, not realizing the lime is very strong. It struck him right in the jaw. After a few more sips, he kept saying “I really like this!!”  Yay! WINNER!! I tried this one as well. Its full of lime in the beginning and the mint comes in real light with a coconut finish..

I had the Lemon Ginger, I love it. Just like the Mojita one, its light, crisp and refreshing! The Ginger gives it a nice kick. Reminds me of a spicy lemonade.

Not only does it taste great, it has 4 live strains of probiotics, so its great for you! Kevita is organic, non-GMO, low in calories, and non-dairy. Naturally sweetened with stevia and contains no added sugar.

This is something I will definitely continue to buy every time I go to the grocery! I suggest you to do the same!!

 Have you tried Kevita? What are your thoughts?

Amy’s Pad Thai Review

 I used to live off frozen dinners. They were cheap and convenient, but horrible! Nothing like microwaving plastic wrapped processed food….mmmmmm… Plus, a lot of them are targeted towards diet and weight loss. This is where they got me. Sure, some tasted good but when I started reading labels, it turned my stomach. I couldn’t believe I was eating that. Over time more and more companies are leaning more towards all natural foods, better ingredients, safer packaging and the ability to cook the food without a microwave. So, after about 5+ years of not eating these convenient meals, I thought I would try one.

I had some coupons from Amy’s Kitchen and decided to see what they had to offer when I was at the grocery. I’m a sucker for thai food. So, it was a no brainer for me in getting the pad thai. Reading the back of the package, they stated that their company is very strict on the ingredients that they use. They also prefer to only use organic ingredients and promise not to use any GMOs. So I was happy with this. Their ingredients looked great.. plus I was happy I could pronounce all of them.

I was pleased with the option to heat in a conventional oven or toaster oven. The packaging wasn’t a plastic container like many frozen meals which is why I was able to pop it right into my toaster oven. It was done in about 35 mins. For those that like to microwave, it only takes a few minutes.

I can say it wasn’t what I was expecting. Usually pad thai has alot of peanut flavor. This version was lacking that. The flavor was kind of weird. I can’t explain it. I like the idea of them using cashews instead of peanuts, but for me this is what makes a traditional pad thai. The tofu was a nice addition, if I didn’t know it was tofu I would of thought it was chicken. The veggies all cooked up tender and crisp. The noodles were al dente and didn’t get mushy. The on downfall for me thought was the sauce like I mentioned. It ruined it for me. I only ate about a quarter of the meal and it was mostly the vegetables. I unfortunately do not think I’ll purchase this particular one again.
