Mother Hen Organic Baby food #Review (Guest-post from Melissa Fowers)

 

Mother Hen Organic Baby Food is gluten-free, No added sugar or salt and best of all it is a homemade recipe. This product is also Peanut free which makes it safe to bring around other children with possible nut allergies, which is so important at a young age.

It comes in many flavors and varieties available in the frozen section of the baby food aisle. (I located mine at Shoppers drug mart).
The 3 flavors my daughter and day care child tried were:
  • Strained Apples and Prunes Puree
  • Strained Mango’s Puree
  • Strained Carrots Puree
My daughter loved the Apples and prunes puree. My day care child loved the carrots puree however I personally found the mango was more sweet. (Yes i tried them too!)
image[3]
Each Box contains 6 ml cups and must remain frozen.

Preparing this baby food is very simple and quick. There are two options:
  1. Double Boiler: empty contents of cup in top part of a double boiler and thaw (This way takes 4 – 5 minutes)
  2. Or by Microwave: Remove cover head on defrost for 1 minute, stir.
image[2]

I choose to use the microwave option which I found extremely easy and fast. It also did not make the food too hot. As a mother of two and a day care provider of 3 I would definitely use this product over and over again as the baby’s loved it, It is organic, healthy and easy to prepare. I also love that it is gluten-free making it gentle on baby’s tummy and safe for children with gluten intolerance.

This baby food is more expensive than other options however I definitely felt the positives (Organic, gluten-free,no added sugar and salt) outweighed the extra cost for sure.

I would highly recommend this product to other parents out there wanting to feed their baby the best 🙂

Namaste Foods: Food For Everyone

Namaste

Imagine having to cook pretty much everything you eat from scratch. This is the reality of someone with Celiac and other food restrictive diseases and it’s not easy when there are ingredients that are missing key components! Thankfully there are companies who have dedicated facilities that are:

  • wheat/gluten-free
  • corn-free
  • soy-free
  • potato-free
  • dairy-free
  • casein-free
  • peanut/tree nut free
  • preservative-free
  • GMO-free
And
  • Vegan friendly
One of these amazing companies is Namaste Foods and some of these tasty products include:
  • Pasta Kits
  • Pizza Crust Mix
  • Coating Mixes
  • Cookies
  • Cakes
  • Bread mixes
  • Soup/Noodles in a cup

And much more!

We received a couple of products. The first being their Pizza Crust Mix which yields 2-14 inch crusts which can be made at separate times. We love that the only things we needed for this was water and oil, both of which we always have on hand. This mix has a delicious blend of spices that totally enhances the flavour of your pizza and you can also use this mix to make chicken nuggets which we only realized after we made a pizza and garlic finger. This product is also sugar-free. Yay!

Pizza

The second product we received was their Pasta Pisavera Dinner. This pasta mix has spiral vegetable brown rice pasta with a delicious Italian seasoning that you mix with sautéed veggies. We really like that the pasta wasn’t sticky as a lot of gluten-free pastas are. This is a nice and healthy side dish that will compliment any meal and appeal to the family.

Pasta

The last product we received was their Chocolate Cake Mix which makes a 2 layer cake or cupcakes and can be divided so that you can make a single cake now and one later on. We really like the way the cupcakes looked after they were done and we especially like that it has that spongy cake texture which is sometimes hard to find when it comes to gluten-free mixes.

Cupcakes

Overall, we’re very impressed with Namaste Foods and their products. We’re especially excited to find their new soups that come in a cup 🙂

MAM Products – Toothbrush & Sippy Cup review

The folks at MAM have developed a great line of products to help your little one make an easy transition from bottle/breast to a big kid cup 🙂 This will definitely make it easy and mess-free. Yay!

The MAM learn-to-drink cup has a soft spout and a slim shape that allows your child to comfortably hold the leak-free cup and it’s BPA-free which is very important to us!
One of the great things about these cups is that the various pieces are interchangeable with other MAM cups.  They also have the option of being spill proof or free-flow for when your child gets a little older. 

These products are great for transitioning or for the mess makers like our little guy, lol! They’re also a money saver as they don’t break when dropped. Overall, we’re impressed and recommend trying these learn-to-drink cups which come in the colors of pink, green or blue.

Toothbrush

The other product that we received to review was MAM‘s training toothbrush. This toothbrush is perfect for little mouths and has a long rubbery handle which makes assisting them a lot easier. It’s important to teach children about oral hygiene and this product is a great way to start 

The MAM training brush was developed with Dentists so you know it’s of top quality! Not only does this toothbrush keep your little ones teeth clean but it also has a gum massager. This is perfect for relieving sore gums or teething pain.  

 

These are definitely products that we recommend to parents, caregivers and even day cares. If you have kids or are involved with kids this is a company worth checking out.

Avogel’s “How Do you #Herbamare”? Challenge – Homemade Broth

Since my diagnosis of Celiac Disease there are many foods that I’ve learned to do without and many that I’ve taken to making myself. One of the things I love to make is homemade broth! I can make turkey, chicken, beef, vegetable and I’m sure if I wanted to I could make a seafood broth. It’s a great way to reduce waste as I use scraps from vegetables that normally get thrown out like peels, end and skins. It’s also a great way to get proteins, minerals and fats that help heal our bodies. This is especially true for people with Celiac Disease as our bodies use the collagen to repair our damaged intestinal track!

It’s very simple to make a (bone) broth or any broth for that matter. Simply allow the carcus of poultry or a beef bone to simmer for a few hours. The longer it simmers the better. Add vegetable scraps and spices for taste. Strain, cool and freeze. You now have broth that can be used for all kinds of recipes like soup, stew, gravy and more.

Vegetable broth is done the same way but with vegetables. You can use anything you’d like. I normally use broccoli stems which are also great for homemade cream of broccoli soup. Onion peels & ends, carrot peels, cauliflower stems, celery tops & bottoms and I like to throw in a handful of cherry tomatoes to give it that nice reddish-orange color. Add your favorite spices and simmer for a few hours.
*If you want to use peppers I suggest using the top with seeds not the pepper itself as your broth will be slimy*

I made a vegetable broth today and used Zesty Herbamare from A.Vogel to season/salt it as part of our 30 day blogger challenge and I’m impressed with how good it tastes 🙂

How do you #Herbamare challenge from Avogel.

How do you #Herbamare challenge,…

A.vogel has created a delicious, natural fine sea salt infused with organic fresh herbs and vegetables. You may be asking yourself what is the difference between table salt and Sea salt?
The short answer is the chemical processing that it undergoes. Basically all of the nutrients from table salt get eliminated with the purification phase.

Herbamare is also fresh and organic which is something important to us and is loaded with minerals. I love that it comes in a ready to use shaker which is soo convenient and it makes foe a non-mess. Herbamare is GMO & MSG free. I really love that it doesn’t leave you feeling full, tired and disgusted after your meals like salt does.

Aviary Photo_130455782127232228

Herbamare’s mixture includes 12 freshly harvested organically grown herbs and vegetables. Its delicious taste will definitely enhance any recipe ..

Here is how we have decided to do our 30-day challenge.

Starting June 1st, this family will put away the salt shakers and bring out the Herbamare. We’ll share photos and recipes with you all and would LOVE your feedback on everything. So join us on our little journey to eating healthier 🙂

It’s sad to say that our Herbamare challenge with has come to an end but our healthy eating habits have not. Admittedly, we feel better knowing that we’re making a better choice with this product and are happy to recommend it.
We had a blast sharing our creations with you and even more so eating them, lol. A huge thank-you to A .Vogel for allowing us to be a part of this tasty & healthy challenge and for helping us see that Herbamare can be used in any dish at all.
