Taste Of Nature – Healthy Organic Bars review

We’re a pretty active family who love adventuring, weather permitting of course. It’s so much easier to be out and about now that the little one doesn’t need a trunk load of stuff to be comfortable and prepared. One of the great things about that is being able to have what I like to call “grab & go” snacks, basically anything you can conveniently take with you as a snack. Obviously the healthier ones being the top choice! Which brings me to a company by the name of Taste Of Nature, who manufacture a very deliciously healthy line of snack bars that are *Certified Gluten free, Non-GMO Project Certified, 100% Certified Organic and Vegan Certified!

These bars are made of delicious fruits and nuts and use fruit nectar to sweeten them as well as to work as a binding agent. These tasty bars come in a few different flavors with different ingredients including Quebec Cranberry Carnival, Brazilian Nut Fiesty and newly introduced Louisiana Pecan Parade. Just the names of these bars make a person hungry, lol. The hunks of fruit in them are absolutely delicious, by hunks I mean whole pieces such as whole cherries and so on. This combined with the nuts and other healthy ingredients like sesame seeds, apples, cranberries and more are what make them a truly healthy treat 🙂 Whether you’re a health enthusiast, active and on the go or just looking to make a healthier snack choice, these bars will amaze your taste buds 🙂

This is definitely a product that I recommend. We love that it’s so healthy and Organic also!

Candy Meister’s – Aseli Marshmallows Review

cm4cm3

Being a candy addict I’m always on the lookout for gluten-free sweets. One of the amazing companies we’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past, Candy Meister, has created NEW deliciously cute marshmallow products known as Aseli Marshmallows. These tasty treats come as assorted mice, large bears and an animal mixture in the flavors of strawberry, lemon, peach, pear and caramel. 

 

cm

They sell for $3.18 a bag and can be purchased online at Candy Meister’s Store. These are absolutely adorable and would be perfect to decorate the sides of a cake or simply to put on the top of a cupcake and they’re soft like a marshmallow too! The best part is that they’re all natural, gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free 🙂 

 cm2

The big yellow bear is coming out soon 🙂

 This is definitely a company that’s worth getting acquainted with. They’re products are absolutely delicious and I can’t wait for the day that they expand nation wide!

Poetic Cases Review

Anyone who owns any type of mobile device has had those heart stopping moments when you’ve either dropped it or its vibrated off of the counter, table or numerous other places you’ve set it down! It’s happened to me at least twice. Once being my fault and the second time our cat knocked it off a divider, which technically is my fault for putting it there but we’ll blame the cat, lol! I’ve found an amazing company, based in the US, who manufacture protective cases for mobile devices named Poetic Cases. These products are very durable and some are even equipped with Bluetooth accessories that are compatible with other Bluetooth enabled devices.

IMG_3060

The case I received is the black Keybook which also comes in white and red 🙂 This case is for the Galaxy Note 8 and has a hard shell that’s covered in a smooth leather with a cracked look and commendable stitch work. I really like the fact that there’s a thick stand that supports the weight of my Galaxy Note 8, as little as it may be, giving it a miniature laptop look.

2

There’s also place cut out for easy removal of the Stylus pen as well as access to the volume and power buttons. The Bluetooth keyboard attached to it comes in very handy when typing up posts, writing e-mail and various other documents. It’s attached with a magnetic plate that’s built-in for easy removal and it’s keys are spill proof and also keep the screen from being scratched when closed. It takes roughly 2.5 hours to fully charge the keyboard and it has approx 60 hours of power on a full charge. The case also puts the Galaxy Note 8 in sleep mode when it’s closed and wakes it up when opened, which is so much more convenient than having to do it manually. This case sells for a very decent price of $34.95 US and is totally worth it. I absolutely love my case and think those of you with Galaxy Note 8’s will too 🙂

Cetaphil Body wash & lotion

Cetaphil RESTORADERM skin Restoring Body Wash & Replenishing Moisture Lotion

Suitable for children 3mts +

Products_RestoraDERM-Page_RestoraDERM_EN

Well for most of you who follow our blog, you know that our 4 year old son has had eczema & dry skin since birth. And recently we were given the opportunity to review 2 products from Cetaphil, the Body wash and Lotion. It has been 2 weeks so far that we’ve been using it and I am proud to say that he hasn’t asked us to scratch his dry spot on his back this whole time. Usually every night after his bath we got him ready for bed and he was forever asking us to scratch his back. You have no idea how happy it makes me that he isn’t “suffering” from his eczema anymore. I even find his skin to be more soft now then it was before..We definitely LOVE Cetaphil in this house and plan to keep it on our grocery list 🙂

After his bath we usually lotion him up with the Replenishing Moisture Lotion. I find both these products are a perfect pair 🙂 Its a hydrating duo 🙂 Cetaphil is gentle, soap-free, fragrance-free and non-allergenic which makes it suitable for everyone. It foams up nicely so you feel really clean after rinsing. And it is safe to use daily and Non-greasy 🙂

You can shop Online or at a Retailer near you, CLICK HERE for a list of places. I highly recommend you to try Cetaphil for yourself. Cetaphil RESTORADERM products are Pediatrician and Dermatologist recommended. It’s also Accepted by the Eczema Society of Canada.

Dizolve Laundry Sheets Review

Dizolve laundry sheets Throw in and forget about them 🙂 I received these awesome laundry sheets from a Canadian company called dizolve. I can honestly say with inventions like this it makes me not mind doing the laundry every-single day. They are made with ultra-concentrated, natural cleaning powder that has been pressed into sheets of 4 strips. Each one is pre-measured for the maximum cleaning power. They are great for all washing machines including HE. g I love Dizolve because its free of: Parabens, phosphates, chlorine bleach and perfumes. Another great thing is they do not test on animals.. Dizolve laundry sheets are hypoallergenic which is great for those with sensitive skin and they are also biodegradable.. They have 2 different scents…. Fresh Linen & Fragrance-Free One of the many things we do to save money around the house is use cold water to wash and rinse our clothes. And did you know that Dizolve laundry sheets are great in hot Or cold water??? As soon as you put it under the flow of water you automatically get bubbles/suds. My clothes come out clean and fresh every time. I cannot wait until the summer so we can hang dry our clothes. ss For $13 you get 64 loads which turns out to be roughly $0.21/load = awesome price for laundry detergent in my books 🙂 Overall  this is a great time-saving/ awesome product that i highly recommend to everyone, especially those who hate doing laundry.

NaoSap Harvest Rice Review

Oriental foods have been a long time favorite of mine and a lot of the dishes I’ve tried contained rice or were rice in general. This has allowed me to try a variety of rice that I honestly never would have tried or even thought of trying! One of my favorite varieties to eat is wild rice. This technically isn’t rice though, it’s actually a grass that is grown in man-made lakes and ponds and has been eaten for centuries by Native Americans. This grass still grows in parts of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and parts of the US.

IMG_20140215_103044

 NaoSap Harvest is a family owned company in Northern Manitoba who produce GMO Free, certified Organic, wild rice and rice linguine. This rice is delicious on its own or broken into smaller pieces and mixed with white rice or in any type of dish you make for that matter. One of my favorite things about this variety of rice is that it’s rich in nutrients such as potassium, thiamine & iron. As well as niacin, zinc,  magnesium, copper, vitamin B6 and more. Talk about healthy 🙂

The fact that NaoSap is located on the edge of the Canadian Sheild and surrounded by Boreal Forrest makes this a great area for this type of rice to grow and is untouched by contaminants makes this a great product and soon to be Superfood (research is in progress) so I’ve read. And seeing as it’s grown in lakes, it’s also gluten free.  Now, there are many different ways to incorporate wild rice into your diet like adding it to salads, soups, pasta dishes and so much more MORE! Why not give it a try, there’s nothing but benefits to look forward to. Ok, not true!  You also have delicious new recipes you’ll be able to make 🙂

You can buy this delicious and healthy rice through NaoSap’s online store ranging from $3.50 for a 1/2 pound cone to $275 for a 50 pound sack. Gift baskets are also available. To make a purchase, browse their products or just read up a bit more about them please visit their website Website

A.vogel’s 30-day #BeatTheFlu #Echinaforce Challenge

We are among the lucky bloggers who get to be part of A.Vogel’s 30-Day Echinaforce Challenge. Follow us on our journey to becoming healthier and bug-free this flu season 🙂 January and February are the months when cold and flu bugs seem to be at their worst. For people who have compromised immune systems this can be a dreaded time of year. Thankfully there are amazing products available from A.Vogel that are made using fresh Organic plants which contain 10 times more active ingredients than dried plants. It’s clinically proven that the Anti-viral, Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory actions of this product help strengthen your immune system. This magnificent product is known as Echinaforce and is made using Echinea Purpea also known as the Cone Flower, which is 100% natural. We honestly couldn’t have been more excited when we read the health benefits of this plant, or flower if you’d prefer. From easing pain and healing infections to chronic fatigue and even detoxifying, this is a miracle plant!

 

 

Echinaforce is available in many different formulas, one being liquid drops that you add to water, and they’ve recently introduced a new hot drink. This drink contains the same amount of ingredients as the drops, the drink is just another way of taking the product and who doesn’t like a nice warm drink? Whether you’re sick or not, lol! We honestly thought this was going to taste like a flower, kind of like Camomile tea, but we were surprised to find that it actually tastes like berries. The Elderberry fruit extract is the delicious fruit flavor that hides, possibly even blends with, the Cone Flower and also gives it a slight sweetness. It also contains herb and root tincture which also have great health benefits to them 🙂 We really like the taste of it and most of all, that these products are gluten-free. This is the best part for the Hubby as his two diseases (Celiac & Type 1 Diabetes) plus his kidney failure have severely weakened his immune system. There could be a simple cold going around, if he ends up catching it he usually ends up in the ER as it sets off all his conditions at once. Thankfully he’s able to take something that helps power his body to fight off anything that he may catch or even make him a little less susceptible!

 

 

 

Keep an eye on the #BeatTheFlu & #Echinaforce hashtags on Facebook and Twitter for more content and for a little treat, for the month of February and the Month of March readers who use the hashtags mentioned above on either social media sites will be eligible to win Echinaforce prizes compliments of A.Vogel 🙂 *Canadians only* You can find more information on EchinaForce products and the amazing benefits of this product Here

Product links –

*************************************************************** It’s now day 5 of A.Vogels #BeatTheFlu blogger challenge and we’re doing great! We’ve had 3 family members who have had colds and are always around us, we haven’t gotten sick! There’s no doubt in our minds that this product works as normally the Hubby would have caught what is going around had he not have taken #Echinaforce. We undoubtedly love this product and recommend it to anyone with a low immune system.

Crunch Master Products Review

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 1 year since my (Hubby) diagnosis of Celiac Disease and with the continuous learning it sure doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, lol. I’d say that I’ve adjusted fairly well to this new way of eating, but there are times when I find myself opening cupboard after cupboard in hopes that delicious gluten-free snacks will somehow magically appear! Wouldn’t it be nice? My problem with the snacks is that I can only seem to find chocolate or something strange like Seaweed flavor, not my thing at all! Of course I’m able to find umpteen different brands of chips that are gluten-free but with my kidneys failing, sodium and oil aren’t exactly tolerable!

We’re very excited to have been given the opportunity to review some very delicious rice crackers and introduce you to the company who makes them: Crunch Master 🙂 This wonderful company is located in the US. Their products are Peanut Free and Gluten Free certified by GFCO (Gluten-Free Certification Organization). They’re also certified Kosher, 100% Whole Grain, Low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol Free and have 0 grams Trans Fats. Some products are even GMO Free, which you can find more information on  HERE

Some of the delicious snacks they make include some for the kids known as Kids Crisps. Grammy Crisps are a very tasty cracker with a light cinnamon & sugar-coating and just the smell of these makes my mouth water. I honestly don’t know how it would taste but I’m willing to bet that these would be good with some milk on them. Possible experiment in the future 😉 Another very tasty cracker is their Cheesy Crisps which are bite size and coated in a powdered cheese sauce. It’s a known fact that Diabetics love cheese so of course I absolutely love these, lol.

The other scrumptious products that we think you’d like are the Multi Grain crackers which have 65% less fat than multi-grain tortilla chips, have tasty flax & sesame seeds and come in 3 different flavors, Sea Salt, White Cheddar and Roasted Vegetable. Then there’s the oh so delicious Multi-Seed crackers. These yummy little snacks come in a few different flavors as well such as Rosemary & Olive Oil, Garlic and original. Keep in mind that these crackers are made from rice so they are a bit crunchy compared to regular ones.

We absolutely loved these products and are so looking forward to trying more products from Crunch Master. These and other delicious snacks are available  Online  And through club stores in Canada and the US.

Gluten-Free Kind Snack bars Review

The world today isn’t a very friendly place and it only seems to be getting worse 😦 What happened to the days of knocking on the new neighbours door and welcoming them to the neighbourhood? We try our best to share our love with the world through our blog as well as in our community by giving back. We hope and feel as though we are helping to make someone’s day, whether it be with a donation to a shelter, a simple comment that made someone smile or a post that someone can relate to and gives them hope.

IMG_2992

 

  I’d like to introduce you to a company named Kind Snacks, who believes in spreading kindness. From small acts like helping the environment to large acts like a fundraising campaign for the less fortunate. Kind encourages people to spread their kindness and started the #KindMovement so people can share their stories of kind acts and be recognized for them. They also make some very tasty snacks like “Whole Grain Clusters” that can be added to yogurt, eaten as a dry snack or even as cereal. These gluten-free clusters come in 4 delicious flavours, Vanilla Blueberry, Oats & Honey, Cinnamon & Oats with Flax Seed and Peanut Butter. As I have stated in previous reviews, gluten-free* or not, whole grains and oats cause me abdominal pain. I also have an extremely low tolerance to these products due to the Celiac, so I suggest eating these at your own discretion as you know best how oats and grains affect you!

bars

The other scrumptious products Kind makes are gluten-free* snack bars. It’s no secret I love nuts! Cashews, almonds and many more that make a very healthy and tasty snack. These delicious bars are made of exactly that, nuts! They use honey and fruit as a binding agent and use nuts instead of oats. There are 22 different flavoured bars to choose from. We were sent Madagascar Vanilla Almond, Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Almond & Coconut and Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein. I’m sure you can guess which my favourite is? The Almond & Coconut? How’d you know 😉 I absolutely love coconut and this bar was chewy, not too sweet and my favourite. I’ve also stated before how much I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, but the combination of the Sea Salt with it totally changed my mind. I actually like dark chocolate with sea salt now 🙂

(The wife made the below snack 🙂 she just used left-over chocolate from christmas and mixed it with the clusters!!! She LOVES them)

aaaa

I’m very impressed with this company and their products and recommend giving them a try, you won’t regret it! These delicious products can be found in major retailers as well as on-line and sell for $2 a bar or $7 for a bag of clusters.

*These products are gluten-free according to the Canadian and US standards of 20 ppm (0.002%) and are produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility*

MyPakage Men Underwear Review

Who likes underwear shopping? Personally, I despise it! I have a hard time finding the right size as every brands sizing seems to be different, a medium could fit me from one brand yet I’ll need a small from another. And we all know you can’t return undergarments thankfully, but a waste of money at the same time. Or I’ll get a pair with excess material that bunches up and we can’t forget the ones that ride up your leg. Talk about annoying! There’s also the stitching that is uncomfortable to sit on, not to mention that sometimes pinches.

un

 MyPakage has created the most comfortable, flexible and supportive underwear ever. These amazing underwear come in 5 styles: weekend, weekday, action series, weekday trunk and weekday first layer. I was honestly a little skeptical about underwear that basically cradles my stuff but I can honestly say that it’s not something I notice. I’m actually excited for the Summer to see how great this invention is at preventing sticking, you know what I mean guys! The fact that these are made from 95% Modal and 5% Spandex makes them form-fitting, as well as keeps them from riding up and keeps you nicely ventilated too, woot!

I love that the stitching is in areas that you won’t be sitting on them or rubbing them and that there’s no tag to make you itchy. These sell for $25 – $30 a pair but the quality and comfort definitely reflects the price. I also really like the fact that MyPakage supports events in their community as well as sponsors athletes. Investing in the people who keep your company going makes you awesome in my books 🙂

Some Wild Animals around the house!!

RECYCLING/COMPOST/WILD ANIMALS

So this is something that I did all last summer. I keep all my scraps and threw them outside at night for the animals.. Now I live in the woods, (so I am able to do this) but all summer I had a Fox (whom I could feed right out of my hand), 2 raccoons (a mom and baby), 1 skunk, then the first stray cat came around and even a little mole used to stops by in the mornings.

So my point in doing this was to recycle everything that could be recycled and we then HARDLY ever had any garbage. Which is good on our part!.
To those who can’t just throw their scraps outside like us, I would recommend starting a compost!. It will be one of the best decisions you will make 😀

Here are a few snap shots I got of the animals who stopped by!

What do you guys think about this post?!!!!

Tulip Spice Grinder Review

The third product I got to review is called the Tulip Grinder. It has a piece in the top that allows you to change the coarseness of the spice you are grinding. You turn it upside down to grind then it conveniently stores the spices in the jar for the next time you need them. I love how nice, small and handy it is, I like to leave mine on the counter.

Now I’ve been talking about it all last year, we want to build another garden as well as our own herbs. We make a lot of our own foods and spices for us are a must. The tulip grinder will come in handy for sure then.

They have a few different choice of colours making it something that will go with any kitchen. Some folks even get 2 of them to use as salt & pepper shakers which is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. You can find this Tulip Grinder HERE for $24.

Cover Blubber Review

The second item we got to review is the Cover Blubber. They come in a pack of 4 (or you can get them individually) and they are multi-coloured..

This is the perfect product for covering bowls, fruit (oranges, watermelon etc) containers and so much more. The different sizes make it so easy and convenient, you’ll want to cover everything 🙂

 WP_20140129_015

The best part about the Cover Blubber is it can be used to store dry goods, products for the fridge and freezer. This is the safer alternative to plastic wrap. It’s made with a food-safe sticky rubber. It is however NOT microwavable or dishwasher safe.

WP_20140129_019

The money you will save with this product will add up quickly. Instead of buying plastic wrap every time you need more (polluting more of the earth and since plastic is no good either, you are hurting your health) you’ll be saving everything by having the Cover Blubber on hand. I highly recommend it.

Just another way we are saving money and the earth 🙂

Cusinart Stick Blender Review

I received these great products to review from a company called Hendrix. Who are they you might ask?

” Hendrix Restaurant Equipment and Supplies is one of Canada’s premier foodservice equipment specialists and it is our commitment to you as a business enthusiast, restaurateur, home cook, and foodservice employee to provide you with the highest level of customer satisfaction and excellence.”

The first product was a Cusinart stainless steel 2-speed (high & low) stick blender. It has a powerful 200-watt motor, push-button control for continuous or pulse action and a comfort grip handle. It comes fully equipped with a chopper/grinder attachment, whisk and mixing/measuring cup. I absolutely love this product, it’s like an all-in-one kitchen tool. One of the attachments (food grinder) is made to be used with the top piece of the stick blender to motorize it. I love how everything works together and its stores away nicely.. Be careful because the blades are extremely sharp.

I have used my blender/food processor to mince some fresh garlic. Normally we buy a 3 pack at a time so it comes in handy to prepare it in some mason jars and it’s always ready when we need it. I cannot wait to make a nice pot of home-made creamy broccoli soup. I will be sure to add some pictures for your viewing pleasure 🙂

You can find the Cuisinart 2-Speed Blender HERE for $65

Kicking Horse Coffee Review

It’s no secret that we LOVE our coffee. So it shouldn’t be much of surprise to hear how much we love Kicking Horse Coffee. This amazing company is a fair trade coffee manufacturer from the West Coast of Canada. We really like the fact this company helps keep wages fair in impoverished countries with their Fare Trade beans. We also really like the fact they produce 100% recyclable containers, only we can make a difference after all! These aromatic beans are also certified Organic, as they are growing on the rainforest canopy under the shade of the trees. They also only come in whole beans!!! We normally grind enough for the week and keep it on hand 🙂 Very convenient!!!

When it comes to being a morning person I can usually jump out of bed fairly easily. The hubby however, is as slow as molasses. This coffee known as Kick Ass, is a dark roast and the name says it all. You will definitely wake up with this coffee, which is another reason why we love it 🙂 It is a little strong but nothing we can’t handle hehe but there are other choices of coffee to choose from. I would definitely recommend this one to other coffee lovers!!
