Safe Catch Tuna is Better Tuna Giveaway – Closed

Comments Off on Safe Catch Tuna is Better Tuna Giveaway – Closed

I have been treated to a new tuna taste. Safe Catch tuna has made me wonder what kind of canned tuna I have been eating all these years! What makes it Safe Catch you might ask?

Safe Catch  is making sure all the tuna they process is safe from the dangers of mercury. Every single fish is tested for mercury levels. Each fish that is caught is traceable from the sea all the way to your table. They only work with boating captains that use sustainable methods with little environmental impact on our oceans. Seriously they know a lot about every single fish!

Safe Catch

It does not end with testing. The packing is done without additives. It is all fish! The fish is hand cut then cooked in the can to keep the nutrients such as high levels of Omega-3.

Now you know the Safe Catch Story. How does it taste? In my taste test, courtesy of Safe Catch, I could not believe this was a canned tuna product. I enjoyed the Safe Catch Elite Wild Skipjack Tuna. I could not believe the  fresh from the ocean flavor. It was big chunks of tuna. I enjoyed it over a bed of greens with a light vinegar dressing. It has such a nice flavor I hated adding the typical mayonnaise to make a tuna salad. Although that would probably be the best tasting tuna salad of all time. The difference is the Safe Catch tuna! I will definitely be buying Safe Catch tuna for my family.

Safe Catch is available by online ordering. The price is a bit more starting at $3.50 per can. The orders are in 6 pack quantities. Safe Catch comes in 3 varieties.

Thank you very much Safe Catch!

I can not get enough fruit lately. With summer swimsuit season coming, I am trying to eat more fruits and veggies. I can’t wait for all the summer fruits. My intentions of eating fruit goes well except for outings. You can’t really carry a mango in your purse. Ever stuff a ripe banana in your pocket? Not an easy thing to do.

Crispy Green has the answer. The Crispy Green Crispy Fruit product line are all natural fruit snacks! No added sugar or additives. Each package starts with high quality fresh fruit from their carefully selected certified growers. Each fruit is then freeze dried into a delicious crispy fruit bite.

I had the chance to taste a few of these inviting healthy morsels.

20150418_134934

Crispy Tangerine – 100% Freeze Dried Tangerine had my attention. How could a juicy tangerine be made into a freeze dried morsel and still taste good? When I opened the package I could see the tangerine slices still holding their shape. One nibble, the tangerine flavor actually bursts in your mouth. It had all the tangy taste of tangerine!

20150418_135106

Crispy Mango – a tropical treat. I love mango and having a package of these came in handy during a day out. The flavor is incredible!

Crispy Banana – Not like typical processed banana chips, these are slices of banana made crispy! I bet the little ones will love these. Each package contains 1/2 cup of banana. No peeling needed!

For more traditional fruits try the Crispy Apple, Crispy Pineapple and Crispy Cantaloupes. For an exotic taste, try the Crispy Asian Pear.

Crispy Green offers a full fruit salad of flavors! Each product is Non GMO verified, Gluten Free  and all natural. We can indulge and feel good about it.

3D 6pack Crispy Fruit Apple

High Chi Energy Jewelry

During my recent visit to the Natural Products Expo West, I was drawn into a magical booth. I could feel the energy pulling me towards there direction. I found it enlightening, energizing and grounding. I had found High Chi Energy Jewelry!

Amethyst9ct_196b604a-e715-4984-8de9-212a17b28a9b_large

The booth was filled with beautiful charms, stones and amulets. I was greeted by a wonderfully easy gentleman to talk with, Ross. He explained the story of High Chi and how its founder Deborah has been studying Metaphysical Arts for decades. I became instantly intrigued as he had me hold my left hand just above the Harmonic Gemstone pendants. The energy you need chooses you! I could feel a change in the energy vibration as I passed over the Amethyst. Amethyst is linked to awareness, connecting to intuition and spiritual growth. I then was directed to the Gods and Goddesses collection. Once again the vibration changed over the White Tara pendant. White Tara represents healing on the emotional, mental and physical Levels, courage and perseverance.

Deborah from High Chi was so kind to offer me a discount to create my “chosen” necklace. In a few moments, I was wearing the stunning piece of energy! Shannon took the gentle loving care to put my necklace together.

I can add a Sacred Geometry piece to my necklace at any time. I would love to enhance the energy with the HighChi pendant. I have been wearing my necklace for a few weeks now and honestly, I hate to be without it. It makes me feel calm and protected. Does it have healing properties? I can say it does make a difference when I am wearing it. The subtle energy provides balance in myself. I knew there was a reason I was drawn to their booth. I am beyond happy to have found High Chi.

High Chi offers jewelry collections for Women, Men and also pets! They also have Chi Cubes which you can carry in your pocket or purse. The cubes can be combined for different energies you desire. I purchased a Healing and a THC-CBD Chi cube. Again I could feel the energy vibrations. I had to inquire about the THC-CBD cube as I am a believer in the medical benefits of CBD. While holding the THC cube I started to feel slightly dizzy. Coincidence? Maybe, but Ross had to remove the cube from my hand to calm down the dizziness. I was skeptical until I actually experienced the energy for myself.

You can order from High Chi directly online but I would suggest attending a show to see and feel the energy in action. High Chi will be attending many shows throughout 2015.

I found out a few years ago that I clench my teeth while sleeping. It can create all types of tightness in my jaw and I was getting headaches just about every day. The dentist recommended a night guard which really has made a difference. Cleaning my night guard is important for health and a fresh mouth feeling.

FG2

I was recently introduced to Fresh Guard products by Efferdent. Fresh Guard Soak is a simple effervescent powder packet that you soak your mouth guard, retainer or removable braces in for just short 5 minutes. The powder starts out blue and will turn clear as it completes the soak time. The deep clean kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria! I like the super clean feeling it leaves on my mouth guard. Fresh Guard was so kind to provide a box of the soak and I am thrilled with its action on my mouth guard.

FG1

For those wearing retainers or removable braces, you might be interested in the Fresh Guard Wipes. They are formulated to not damage or scratch and you can use them anytime on the go! The wipes will clean away mouth plaque leaving a fresh minty flavor! They are also alcohol free.

Lilly’s Hummus Giveaway – Closed

Comments Off on Lilly’s Hummus Giveaway – Closed

Lilly's logoMy sister first got me to taste hummus. I was pretty skeptical that it could be any good. I have had some not so tasty hummus until I found the flavors of Lilly’s Hummus.

Lilly’s Hummus started in a home kitchen. By creating unique flavors for dinner guests, Lilly received many requests to market her amazing hummus flavors. Today there are 8 tantalizing flavors of Lilly’s Hummus, one sure to please any palate.

8 flavor pastiche

Courtesy of Lilly’s Hummus, at the Natural Products Expo West show, I had the chance to taste one of each flavor. What a treat! There are people that love hummus or they hate it. I say they never tried Lilly’s Hummus. My husband is one of those folks not really wanting to try it. Well I found him devouring the Roasted Garlic and the Smoked Tomato and Basil Lilly’s. He loved both but I did notice the Smoked Tomato and Basil was gone the quickest.  My favorite flavor was the Black Bean. It was like a creamy bean dip! I could not get enough! I shared a few of the flavors with family and the reviews were all thumbs up. My father-in-law loves anything spicy so the Roasted Jalapeno Hummus was perfect! Each of the 8 flavors was incredibly tasty!

tub_bbtub_rg

Lilly’s Hummus is made from all natural ingredients. Hummus is made from garbanzo beans with tahini and flavorings. It is usually eaten as a dip with flatbread pita chips but it serves well as a vegetable dip or a sandwich spread. Lilly’s offers recipe ideas too!

Lilly’s Hummus is:

Gluten Free

All Natural with no preservatives

100% GMO free

Made from Organic Garbanzos

Trans-Fat Free

CaCoCo logo

I am one of those people that has to have some type of chocolate everyday. It is a rare occasion when I miss my daily nibble of chocolate. I found an incredibly blissful way to have a chocolate moment.

Introducing CaCoCo Creamy Blissful Superfood Drinking Chocolate! While attending the Natural Product Expo West convention earlier in the month, I had a small sip of CaCoCo. A sip is hardly enough to experience the goodness of CaCoCo. What makes it so good for you? CaCoCo is all organic being made from raw cacao beans, natural sweeteners and fresh spices. The drinking chocolate is dairy free, gluten free and free of major allergens.

This is not a run of the mill watered down hot chocolate mix. CaCoCo is a chocolate whole body experience. A little goes a long way! All it takes is two tablespoons blended or shaken to make your blissful moment. I prefer having CaCoCo as a hot drink but its versatily can be used cold, in recipes or in smoothies for a great chocolate flavor!

Look at the richness in my warm cup!

SAM_0004SAM_0005

CaCoCo comes in 3 tantalizing flavors.

CaCoCo Bags

Original – sweet with a slightly spicy kick. It contains Cayenne!

Essential Midnight – my favorite! Deep dark semi-sweet boldness in each sip.

Global Warrior – Dark with a bittersweet taste.

All it takes is a small of amount of CaCoCo in 1/4 cup hot water. The taste is so blissfully chocolaty and satisfying! The amount may be small but the flavor is huge! Just this small amount was enough to satisfy my chocolate craving for the entire day! It is rich and very decadent, not to mention the natural nutrients give your body good things too! It is a total body experience. I am looking forward to trying CaCoCo in recipes or added to smoothies, that is if I have any left from enjoying it as a warm hug of a drink.

You can order CaCoCo directly from their store. The 1/2 pound bag costs $18.99 plus you can order larger size bag or a Mix & Match 3 pack for a better value and you can get one of each flavor!

Happify – Happiness is a Skill

September 10, 2013

Comments Off on Happify – Happiness is a Skill

DCBanner

happify

I could use a little happiness. Things have been a bit of a struggle for my family for the past two years. My health developed some serious issues then my hubby started noticing some problems in his own health. We are slowly getting back to where we were and dealing with our problems. It has been a scary time which would make anyone lose their smile.

Recently I was introduced to Happify! Happify it based on a scientific breakthrough that happiness is a skill each of use can control. Happify is a way of making you think as a happier person.

I am only just beginning my modules in the Happify environment, but they are rather enjoyable little tasks. Each day you log in you will find another task to help you find the “happy” all around you.

Happify works by building your happiness skills through a variety of exercises. Helping others, sharing thoughts, planning special moments are just a few of the activities I have done in my first level of Happify. I like the happiness progress tracking. Although mine has not changed much in the few weeks of my being part of the community, I look forward to seeing how it will make a difference as I get further along. My hardest part is to remember to check in every day. If there was a daily email reminder, it would really help me stay on track.

Each module lets you complete it in around 7 days. As you complete a task, more tasks will open for you, plus you get rewarded with virtual medals. It is very user friendly to see where you are and inviting to try the next task. I like the privacy as well as the group atmosphere. You choose how you would like to share your activity. I prefer on some actions to keep it visible to “only me” but I like to share with the community too. A big part of the fun is reading what others have to say. I really enjoy browsing through the posts by others. Knowing what makes other people smile, makes me want to smile along with them!

I plan on making it my morning habit to visit Happify. Thousands of people are finding their little happiness every day with Happify! It is also available as an iPhone app for on the go. I might have to download it.

Happify FB logo

Check out Happify to bring your happiness skill levels up. I can personally invite 5 people. If you would like to give it a try, let me know in the comment and I will get back to you.

I look forward to my Happify journey. Everyone could use a little Happify!

The Color Run – Colorific Fun! #Happiest5k

July 1, 2013

Comments Off on The Color Run – Colorific Fun! #Happiest5k

DCBanner

This past Saturday I participated in the most fun 5K event ever! The Color Run. It was a total blast! From the crazy outrageous participants to the even crazier hosts – The Color Run was one of the best things I have done this year!the_color_run_logoRoll

It was a bit of a struggle due to the super high heat wave we are having in the West. The temperature was expected to be near 100 at the race event. It was a good thing the races were earlier in the morning. The Color Run adapted by adding water elements….aahhhhh.

IMG_1323IMG_1333

My day started by wearing all white as did everyone else. Wearing white is a must so you can get colorfied by the end of the 5K. The starting line was filled with all types of people. Young, old, non athletes, super pumped athletes, kids in strollers and lots of newbies. My group was the 8:30 AM group, and off we went. The route had us traveling through the inside of the Pomona Fairgrounds. That was pretty cool. We went through the midway and then through the animal barns, finishing up on the horse racing track. The finish line was the center of the horse track. That is where the color party really happened!

 

The fun of the color run is getting colored at each 1k. Because of the excess heat, the organizers added elements of water to the color. The first color was WET orange. I was doused with a bright orange jet stream. Beautiful! Moving on down the course, came pink, yellow and glorious blue. The blue crew….they had it going on! There was a blue cloud hovering over the stable area. They really knew how to dose with color. I looked like a bright blueberry! A big thumbs up to the Blue!

I had no trouble walking the 5k and I did it rather quickly. I always walk fast anyway. I told my hubby, who was waiting at various segments, if I had known how fun it was getting colored, I would have walked a little slower so I could experience more fun. I was ready to walk the course a second time!

The Color Run is more than a sporting event. During the race staging, the excitement started with a Zumba instructor really getting the runners warmed up. Boy could she move those hips. The emcee’s were tossing out lots of swag to the crowd. There were frisbees flying everywhere, plus socks, headbands, fanny packs and more. Bummer I did not catch anything, oh well. It really had the crowd pumped up and ready to go.

Yes it gives you a workout but even the slowest walker can participate. Most everyone was walking. The real fun is turning a kaleidoscope of colors by the end of the race. The party was at the finish line. Everyone gathered at the center stage for some pounding music and color throwing amazement. Each participant was provided with a color packet. A count down at the stage then everyone tossed the color into the air. OMG it was the most beautiful color cloud ever! I was in the middle of the color with the biggest smile on my face – although it was hard to see with all the blue covering me. Gotta love those blue sprayers!

When it was all done, I was covered in color and filled with pride that I had finished The Color Run. It was a goal of mine to participate and I did it! I would recommend to anyone to join the fun at your local Color Run. Even my hubby wants to participate in the next one. Families can walk or run together! Check the Color Run page for events coming to your area, there are many nationwide and new cities added all the time. Definitely take advantage of the early registration prices as it can get a little pricey if you wait. You do get a race packet including a tshirt, headband and your pack of color. Even picking up the race packet is a little party. Overall the entire experience was pure colorific fun!

IMG_1391IMG_1396IMG_1399

I will be back for next years events in my area. I can’t wait.

Watch the Color Run page for upcoming events. Get out there and walk or run! Enjoy the Color Run Fun!
