Who remembers the Fla-Vor-Ice pops from when you were little? I bet you don’t remember that they were also artificially died, loaded with sugar and lord knows what else! I’ve been reading labels more and paying attention to what I’m eating. I found these frozen fruit pops by Power of Fruit. Let me break it down for you:
- 100% Whole Fruit
- No corn syrup
- No additives
- No preservatives
And just to keep it real…every fruit bar you’ve tried (cough, cough Edy’s) probably has a small amount of real fruit in it.
They come in cherry berry, banana berry, tropical all fruit and (my fav) orange tango.
Roasted Heirloom Vegetables VIDEO: http://tinyurl.com/6v3v3e4
As much as I have a sweet tooth, I need to balance it out with healthy, clean eating once in awhile. I was so excited to have discovered www.chefs-garden.com. They produce specialty and heirloom veggies, herbs micro greens and edible flowers. AKA stuff that you just can’t buy in your local store (especially during the winter months). Chefs Garden is supported by top chefs and restaurateurs across the United States. They deliver direct from the farm, are socially/environmentally/economically responsible and pride themselves on food safety and quality. Availability changes based on the seasons and they have a variety of packages available (everything is super affordable). If you have parents/grandparents who can’t get to the store, family or friends who live across the country…this is such a cool monthly gift!
Kombucha Wonder Drink Review:
Car sickness is something that I’ve always had. Dramamine knocks me out for hours and those “sea bands” cut off my circulation. My secret weapon is anything carbonated with pure ginger in it. One of my favorite products of the month is the Kombucha Wonder Drink. Kombucha is a fizzy elixir that promotes health, longevity and mental clarity. They infuse it with organic teas and fruit concentrates. The naturally occurring acids are said to detoxify and energize your body. My favorite flavor is one of their newest, the Asian Pear & Ginger (I’m sipping on it right now).
