I decided a while back to try eating Gluten-free. I always had sensitivity to gluten but not enough symptoms to be a concern to my doctor.I still felt it could not hurt to see what happens. It has been almost two months of eating gluten free and I can really feel a difference.

At first I was not sure what to actually eat. I hated the thought of giving up breads, sweets and all the tasty good stuff. A little bit of research and store browsing, I found a whole new world of gluten free foods. One of my favorite brands is Enjoy Life!

Enjoy Life products are all gluten-free and allergy friendly! They also contain no artificial ingredients, trans fats or GMO ingredients. Enjoy Life really wants you to Eat Freely as their motto says!

Adding to their extensive product line of cookies, bars, cereals and more are the new Decadent Soft Baked Bars. Four scrumptious flavors are great for anytime snacking. Drizzled with chocolate or white chocolate coating – these are truly indulgent!

Cherry Cobbler – I love anything cherry. The sweet and tart flavor of cherry comes through and I loved the creamy white drizzle.

Chocolate Sunbutter – A burst of nuttiness in a deep chocolate base.

Cinnamon Bun – Like eating a cinnamon raisin roll. This was my favorite of the flavors. Yummers!

S’mores – Just like the best campfire flavor ever.

Halo Moment

There is a hero in all of us. There are heroes all around us too. The Los Angeles Angels along with St. Joseph Health are wanting us to notice our everyday heroes with their program –  Halo Moments.

“Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing’s certain: We love the ones who pitch in for a better community,” said Angels catcher Chris Iannetta, who is supporting the awareness and recognition campaign. “Baseball players are looked upon by many fans as heroes, but the true heroes are the people who give selflessly of themselves to make their communities better for all. So go to halomoments.com and nominate your community hero today.”

SJH-SOCAL-Regional-color

The St. Joseph Health Heroes campaign features a special website to visit, where anyone can nominate a local hero. Submit your hero story plus a photo of someone you know that is making a difference. It could be a special moment, a special day or a big event that you find inspiring to the community. Share this individual on the Halo Moments designated website!

My beloved Angels baseball team is the perfect partner behind Halo Moments. After all, they are always lighting up the Big Halo! No worries Angels, we will get them next year!

The St. Joseph Health Heroes and Halo Moments campaigns are part of a new three-year partnership between the Angels and St. Joseph Health, the Official Hospital Partner of Angels Baseball. St. Joseph Health is my health group too so this is near an dear to my heart. I love my Angels and I love St. Joseph Health!

Lyfe Kitchen – Love Your Food Everyday

April 12, 2013

Comments Off on Lyfe Kitchen – Love Your Food Everyday

DCBanner

I have been making very strong efforts in healthy changes. One of my family’s biggest health makeover involves our meals. My hubby – is the fast food king. His work schedule and  constantly changing locations, makes fast food the only option most of the time.

At least I know what he is eating when at home. One of the most eye opening, and mouth drooling events I attended at Natural Products Expo West, was the Lyfe Kitchen breakfast.Lyfe Logo

In one word – scrumtiodeliciyumeasy!  Okay – it is scrumptious, delicious, yummy and easy.

The beginnings of Lyfe Kitchen started with a mission to change how people think about frozen and ready to eat meals. An elite group of chefs and foodies worked together to create good for you, healthy nutritious meals that can be prepared easily. The products are Chef inspired, low in sodium and free of artificial ingredients and no trans fat. Every one of the meals is under 500 calories per serving.

While at the breakfast, I tasted the Farmers Market Frittata and the Steel Cut Oatmeal. I really enjoyed the Frittata but found the garden salsa a little too spicy for me. My favorite was the Steel Cut Oatmeal. Oh my goodness, I could eat this everyday! The oats are a mixture of oats and quinoa (a really good for you food) plus a fruit mixture of apples, pineapples and peaches. I loved the fruit! I usually don’t each much oatmeal, but this one is something I actually crave! More, give me more!

Making the Lyfe Kitchen meals are simple to prepare.  The meals come in a unique microwaveable steam in the paper pouch. A few minutes in the microwave, cut open the pouch and let the contents slide out onto your plate. They will look super tasty too!

Lfye Kitchen shared a couple entrees for me to try. The Whole Grain Pilaf was very satisfying! Brown rice with quinoa and red wheat berries, with a lovely mix of vegetables plus a crunchy topping of toasted almonds, made for a flavor party! I am finding out I really like quinoa, at least the way Lyfe Kitchen makes it. I have one more meal to taste – I am saving it for a special evening when I only have to cook for myself. I don’t want to share – they are that good! Orange Mango Chicken will soon be enjoyed.

product_WholeGrainPilaf

Lyfe Kitchen also opened a new restaurant in California. I wish I lived closer to Culver City, I would go there a lot.

Look for Lyfe Kitchen frozen entrees at select locations such as  Safeway and Whole Foods in Northern California. On the West Coast, check your local Ralphs, Fred Meyer and QFC. For those in other areas – you can order online at Amazon and HSN.com.

Bring a new taste sensation into your home. Treat your family to Lyfe Kitchen. Love Your Food Everyday!

Nature’s Path Organic Granola Bars – Review

March 29, 2010

Comments Off on Nature’s Path Organic Granola Bars – Review

Nature’s Path Organic Granola Bars are “A Smarter Way to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth”. Nature’s Path is introducing delicious new flavors of Granola Bars.

Nature’s Path was founded in 1985. They are headquartered in Richmond British Columbia and employ over 350 people. Nature’s Path, a family owned company produces breakfast foods and snacks available for purchase in specialty food stores in 40 countries around the world. An interesting fact about Nature’s Path – they recently purchased over 2000 acres of fertile Saskatchewan farmland to partner with local organic farmers to increase organic cropland while supporting family farms. Way to give back Nature’s Path!

The new exciting flavors of the granola bars are mouthwatering. Mmmaple Pecan, Berry Strawberry, Lotta Apricotta and Sunny Hemp are great additions to the granola bar line. Other flavors include Peanut Buddy, Peanut Choco, Chococonut and Pumpkin-n-Spice. The Mmmaple Pecan is made with organic maple syrup, pecans and a drizzle of creamy icing. I love this new flavor. It is salty and sweet with a delicious maple goodness. It was like having maple pecan pancakes in the go. The whole grain oats blend nicely with the pecans. This bar is filled with Omega-3’s too. Love it! Lotta Apricotta and the Berry Strawberry are Chewy Granola bars made with real fruit and a real yogurt coating for creaminess. I enjoyed the fresh fruity taste of both these bars with the Berry Strawberry being my favorite of the fruit bars. Sunny Hemp is a more nutty trail mix type of bar. Made with hempseed, flaxseed, sunflower seeds and juicy raisins. I prefer the yogurt and the Mmmaple Pecan Bars over the nutty taste of Sunny Hemp but it was delicious. If you enjoy nutty flavors this bar would be for you.
What is great about the Nature’s Path Organic Granola Bars is they are:
-Low Sodium
-No Trans Fat
-Vegetarian
-Wheat Free
-Whole Grain

All this goodness mixed in with great taste! Make Nature’s Path your new granola bar of choice.

You can find Nature’s Path at select retailers nationwide or you can order directly online.
