Starting the Day with Crazy Faith Awakening Coffee

Posted in Reviews

Special thanks to Family Christian for providing a sample of the Crazy Faith Awakening Coffee. Mornings start early at our place. With winter approaching, I head out to feed the animals before the sun even thinks about making an appearance on the horizon. Today, clouds filled the sky blocking out the normal light from the stars and moon. The smell of moisture was in the air. It was the type of morning where you could feel the chill in your bones even if you were all bundled up. My day starts with feeding the animals and quickly switches to preparing…

Valley Food Storage: Enchilada Beans & Rice

Posted in Reviews

Special thanks to Valley Food Storage for providing a sample meal for us to test in our home. It’s hard to find long term food storage items that are not only gluten free but also on the healthy side. When you add in the fact that we want the food to taste good, it makes it even more difficult. Whether we’re putting aside food for emergencies, backpacking, or camping, we want to know that the food is at least fairly healthy, gluten free, and good tasting. When I was asked it I would be interested in testing out one of…

Organic India Moringa

Posted in Reviews

Special thanks to Organic India for providing a sample of their products through Moms Meet. I first heard of Moringa when we moved to California. The health foods stores talked about this nutrient dense food that had over 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and loads of minerals. It’s a concentrated superfood  that is both alkalizing and energizing, and it’s abundant in vitamins, minerals, and complex amino acids. People used it to help restore imbalances in their system and increase overall well-being. The Organic India brand of Moringa products are USDA certified organic, non-gmo project verified, Kosher and Halal certified, gluten free,…

I have to admit that I’m normally not one to use sugar alternatives other than things like honey or coconut sugar. I stay away from artificial sweeteners due to how I respond to them healthwise and due to their horrible aftertaste. My previous experience with Stevia hadn’t been that great, but I went into the review with an open mind as I am always on the lookout for good products. NuNaturals is committed to providing top quality products that taste good. I had heard wonderful things about their products from an online friend, but I also knew that I’d heard…

Applegate Natural Deli Meats Giveaway

Applegate Natural Deli Meats

So you’ve decided that you want the convenience of pre-sliced deli meats but you don’t want all of the additives and other “yucky” stuff that can be found in many of the prepackaged meats. At the same time, you don’t want to sacrifice taste when looking for a good alternative. This is where Applegate Organic and Natural Meats enter the picture.

Applegate Natural Meats are humanely raised without the use of antibiotics, and are free of nitrates, nitrites, and other artificial ingredients. They don’t sacrifice flavor or texture when providing a healthier alternative to traditional packaged meats on the market.

Now, if you’re like me and live in an area without a bunch of health food stores, you may find the meat a bit difficult to find. In fact, you may learn that you need to pick up the meat when you’re visiting a location where they have places like Whole Foods, Sprouts…. (Our local stores carried a few Applegate products, but they did not carry the natural meats.) You can check out the store locator to find a retailer near you. On a positive note, when you do locate them, you’ll be pleased to know that they are gluten free. In fact, many of the Applegate products are gluten free.

Mouse Egg Salad

Of course, since we’re gluten free, we often find ourselves taking our lunches on the go which means I need to find easy lunches/snacks for on the road. We enjoy having things like meat, cheese, and crackers with veggies and/or fruit when we’re on the go. If I get a little more creative, Munchkin may find herself having a fun lunch like the Mouse Egg Salad pictured above.

Would you like to try out the Applegate Natural Deli Meats? Two of my readers will win an Applegate Natural Deli Meats prize pack courtesy of Applegate through Moms Meet. Giveaway is open to US residents and ends 10/31.
