Canyon Bakehouse Giveaway

Are you looking for new breakfast ideas for either yourself, spouse, or kids? Canyon Bakehouse has some ideas for you! You need to start your day with a nutritious breakfast that will fill you with focus and energy for the day. You're probably looking for fast and easy ideas too, right? I know I am. Breakfast for me is the hardest meal of the day to plan. I can never find foods that will give me the energy I need.

Canyon Bakehouse provides gluten free breads that taste and feel like “real” bread. Made with 100% whole grains for energy and nutrients, the breads are baked with ingredients you can pronounce and find in your own kitchen, such as extra virgin olive oil, organic agave syrup and eggs.

7 Grain= pair this bread with a slice of turkey -- You're probably thinking "turkey?!, that's a lunch food"... yes... but it's full of protein and is very low in sugar.
Cranberry Canyon Crunch Muffin -- pair this with a hard boiled egg
Mountain White- Pair this with avocado and cheese. Avocado is a good fat. It keeps your stomach full. Who doesn't love cheese? Cheese is perfect for any meal.
Cinnamon Raisin - Almond or Nut butter. Use all natural.

Flavors?
Cinnamon Swirl
Chocolate Butter
Strawberry Banana
Cherry Chocolate
Chocolate Fudge
Chocolate Mint

My favorite so far is the Chocolate Fudge and Chocolate Mint. I'm normally not a chocolate person, but they are really good! I eat a bar and then I don't crave for anything else. I don't need to have another snack, or I don't need to reach for something I know I don't need. They satisfy my hunger, and my cravings. They are really nutritious! I can see myself trying more of the products to a healthier me!

They also have many supplements too. I would definitely love to try the belly fat buster program. That's one of my main goals right now. They also have glucose management, vitamins, weight management pills, and body system plans. You should check them out here. I know I've been doing some checking out more than once. I'm interested in a few of those supplements and plans. Check them out on facebook, and twitter.

They are great for birthdays, weddings, beach days, school days, work days, lazy days, pretty much any time you need something tasty to satisfy a craving. They also last longer than a dum dum sucker.

WB Kitchen Review

I'm always looking for snacks that are on the healthier side, and snacks where I can read the ingredients. If I can't read the ingredients I normally won't buy it. I was given the chance to try WB Kitchen's Paleo snacks. Their Philosophy:
What White Buffalo offers is not just all natural honey sweets, it represents a state of mind. As humans our food choices directly reflect the level of conscious awareness we bring into the rest of our lives. Choosing to nourish our bodies with real and harmonious foods brings us more in balance with our community and our planet. Eating the foods mother nature intended allows you to feel and be healthier, happier and more vibrant. This is how we choose foods for our own bodies and wish only the same for YOU!
At White Buffalo Kitchen we believe in real food for real people. Our honey sweets are hand crafted using local Colorado honey and all natural ingredients. Preservatives, artificial colors and flavors have no place in our products and are never used.


If you like honey then you'll like these snacks.
So the flavors are
brownie cookie (not posted)
maple pecan (my favorite)
cinnamon raisin
Coconut shortbread
peanut butter
and the bars
honey nut (my favorite)
peanut ginger spice
and chocolate chocolate chip

So every time you bite into one of the cookies or the bars, you not only can taste the flavor of the cookie, but there's also a taste of honey. IN every single bite you get the taste of honey and since I love honey, it was very refreshing. My favorite was the honey nut ar and the maple pecan cookie. The others were good too, but those two got my attention. Wish I had more of those! I also love the fact that you can read every ingredient in the cookies/bars, and you know what you're putting into your body.
I'm really big on my healthy lifestyle right now and eating snacks like this helps me along. They are definitely worth the try. You can find out if they sell them near you by clicking here. When I go back home to MI, I'll have to go to one of the stores and buy some more. You can also buy them online.

connect with WB kitchen on: Facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Elemer's Fine Foods review & giveaway

Are you looking for a different snack to try? Elmer's Fine Foods may be for you. They are known for their "Cheewee" chips and let me tell you -- they are quite good! So what are Cheewees? They are cheese curls, and you probably already like cheese curls, so you'll probably fall in love with these. Also, you probably think that cheese curls are only offered in cheese flavor right? Nope! They come in a variety of flavors.
I received each flavor of the cheewees, and they also sent me their popcorn and peanuts! The flavors of the CheeWees are:
Original
Bar-B-Que
Green Onion
Hot-n-Spicy
and Jalapeno

My favorite are the hot and spicy and jalapeno.
They are baked not fried. They are made in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I've shared them with my boyfriend and my co-workers are everyone seems to really like them. One big compliment, is that they don't leave a mess on your fingers, and once the bag is empty people are begging for more! You too can try your own Cheewees! You see that picture that I posted at the very top? That's the lunchbox special. Each bag is only 140 calories, and you get:

Ageless by Thera Vita Review

This is professional aging beauty moisturizer. This cream helps make your skin look a lot younger by melting away the fine lines. You feel a difference right when the cream touches the skin. It's made with natural ingredients. Some of them including: Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel and Lavender Oil. It's packaged beautifully and it has some great reviews on amazon.com One great benefit besides that it makes your skin look younger, is that it works on all skin types.

My opinion: I have a thing for lavender, and not only does it have lavender in the ingredients, but it also has a small lavender scent. I'm too young to have many wrinkles on my face, so I can't really say how well this works for me, but it's nice to have a moisturizer to use. It's very soft, and my face feels smoother with it.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

TheraRelief Review

When you have any kind of pain whether it be joint, knee, neck, lower back, or any other pain, you want a cream that's going to be fast acting, not smell, and not leave a greasy feeling on your body. This would be TheraRelief. I've used other creams in the past like icy hot, and those don't really do much except smell, and when I mean smell, I mean smell. Even after you wash your hands, there's still a smell. Not with TheraRelief.
I work out on a daily basis and there are days when my trainer works me out where I can't feel any parts of my body -- I'm in a lot of pain. There are days when my boyfriend doesn't want to give me a massage, or it just hurts too much. There are days when a hot shower only works for so long... then there are days when I can use this therarelief cream. I don't even need to put a lot on, just a dab, and in a few minutes I feel some relief, and I can relax.

TheraRelief is safe -- free of parabens. It delivers fast results, and it supports healthy joints. It doesn't leave any odor, and doesn't leave any grease, and if you're not satisfied, it comes with a money back guarantee. I'm telling you, throw all the other products away, and just keep TheraRelief. I wish I knew about it sooner!

Luke's Organic Review

"Hi, I’m Luke. I was diagnosed with celiac disease when I was 7 years old and I’ve been on the lookout for great tasting, gluten free snacks ever since. Finally, here’s one that doesn’t taste like tree bark. You’ll be so happy, you’ll eat them all. I’m also passionate about weather and part of the proceeds from our sales will go to the red cross (for severe weather disaster relief)."

Great tasting is correct. Luke's line of crackers and chips are absoutly amazing and they are definitely great tasting. A lot of Gluten Free foods aren't that good (the ones I've tasted) and it's hard to find ones that satisfy a craving, but Luke's Organics do just that.
When I looked at the nutritional facts on one of the boxes of chips and crackers, I immediately got excited. They aren't bad for you at all! I basically have at least chips or crackers in every lunch I make for work. I am very, very, very pleased with the Superfood and Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia Seed chips. Those two are my favorite, and those two are gone. It's crazy, I was in Marshalls the other day shopping and I always look at the specialty food that they carry, and I saw a bag of Luke's Chips. The Chia Seed one to be exact. I should have bought it.
-- Sodium count is perfect, there is no sugar (perfect), and there is 5g of protein. I have to say I'm quite pleased, and the best part? I can read the ingredients!

You can pair the chips/crackers up with salsa, guacamole, hummus, spinach dip, peanut butter, or whatever else you please, or better yet, eat them alone. They don't need any pairings! If you're interested in learning about other pairings, check pinterest out. You should also check out the website. It's highly user friendly and very cool. Check them out on facebook, twitter, and instagram. I'm so glad I've had the chance to try a healthy, good for you, snack.

ProTings review

If you've been reading a lot of my posts, you'd know I've been trying to live a healthier lifestyle and protein is a HUGE part of it. I've been eating better and also trying to find snacks that I can still eat (because I have a thing for snacking). I actually found a snack that contains lots of protein and is very tasty. They are called Protings.

Two friends who both worked out were sitting on a couch one day thinking about why protein snacks don't exist. They were friends in college, and then moved to NYC together. Through the years they were always taken back to the fact that there aren't many snacks out there, or really any that contain lots of protein. They finally decided to work on that and with much experimentation in the kitchen and starting a business, in 2013 Protings launched.

Protings are
All Natural
Lots of Protein
Gluten Free


Just look at the nutrition facts. 15 grams of protein. 1 gram of sugar. Sodium is a little too high, but if you eat these in moderation, it's okay. The chips include: pea protein, flax seeds, and sunflower oil. I've been doing a lot of pea protein lately, so this is good for me.

Pea protein is said to be one of the most perfect proteins for human consumption. Its benefits over both animal and other vegetable proteins include: Ease of digestion Lack of allergens Ideal amino acids for sports

So there are three flavors, chili lime, bbq, and sea salt. My favorite so far is the chili lime. Let me tell you that when I took one bite, the chili spice went straight to my nose. I had to sit back for a moment before taking another bite. It was really good. The bag was gone in no time. I was in great need of protein that day too, and that bag did the trick. Chili Lime has been my go-to flavor this week. I have yet to try the other two, but they will be part of my lunch routine this week for sure. If you're looking for a great protein snack outside of protein shakes and protein bars, these Protings are for you! You can buy online, or see if they sell them near you.

Find them on facebook, twitter, and pinterest. Check them out today!

Pure Care Review


premium eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products with a unique aromatherapy effect

I really needed to clean my bathroom. If I showed you my sink, you'd be disgusted. The All-Purpose cleaner I received and the Glass cleaner came in handy. Everything looks a lot better, and it smells a lot fresher.
We haven't thought about using this for our floors yet, but since it's "all purpose", might as well give it a try. All-Purpose is 8.99 a bottle.

We go through our dish soap really fast. I cook a lot, and we always wash our dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, and with the pots and pans, they don't go in there, so the soap always comes in handy. My boyfriend was really excited to see the dish soap. You can use this soap without protective gloves. The dish soap is 9.99 a bottle.

Glass Cleaner- "Pure Care V.O.C. Free Glass Cleaner contains no harsh chemicals such as ammonia, solvents, or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). It is designed for the effective streak free cleaning of windows, mirrors, metal, chrome, plastic, fiberglass, plexiglass and other hard surfaces.". My windows in my car are filthy. We thought that it was on the outside, but some how it's all on the inside. I've tried many glass cleaners in the past, and nothing has seemed to work. Then I used Pure Care's glass cleaner and it worked wonders. I can see again! The glass cleaner is by far my favorite item of their line. It's also 8.99 per bottle. It comes in three different flavors: EUCALYPTUS CLOVE CEDAR -- LEMONGRASS VETIVER -- and CEDAR PATCHOULI ORANGE.


Pure Care also has a line of bathroom cleaner. You can either buy the products separtely or you can buy the in a package. You can check out the prices and see the products here. You’ll feel confident knowing you’re using 100% natural, non-toxic cleaning products from Pure Care, and imagine how nice it’ll be to fill your house with natural aroma while cleaning!

I recommended, you try out these Pure Care Products. Go Green!

2 Piczzle - Your special puzzle with your own photo. Review + Giveaway



Do you like putting together puzzles? What if you were able to pick the photo yourself and then put it together? That's what I was able to do with Piczzle. I picked a photo as you see above, and I picked the size, and then it came to me and my boyfriend put it together. It was funny, I didn't realize he was a puzzle fan, but he enjoys puzzles that are 200 pieces and less. I came home one day to my boyfriend sitting at the kitchen table putting the photo puzzle altogether. He felt very proud of himself.


All you pretty much do is upload your file, pick the text if you want any, pick your size and shape, and then press send! Shipping doesn't take long at all, and they accept paypal! These puzzles would be good as a gift! To see the some examples of what other people have picked for their puzzle, head on over to the Piczzle Picture Puzzle on facebook. Also, if Facebook isn't winning you over yet, head over to the Piczzle Photo Puzzle on YouTube There are so many different photos that you can choose for these puzzles. Why go to a store and spend a long time trying to figure out which one you want to put together, when you can just make your own? It's more creative that way!!

You too can win your own puzzle. I believe if you win, you get to choose between the small and medium size. So enter below, or better yet, after you enter, head over to Piczzle Picture Puzzle and buy one today!

fulcrumgallery.com review

This could not have come at a better time. Since moving in with my boyfriend, all he's had on the walls have been a picture of a duck. Not really sure how he got that duck picture, but it was definitely time to upgrade. A few months ago, his parents came to visit, and we went to a store that specialized in paintings. They picked out a few for the house, but not one for the bedroom that has all my stuff from my previous apartment. I couldn't find a picture that I fell in love with. I also didn't want anything to do with the beach, or flowers. Then a couple weeks after I received an email, from fulcrumgallery.com asking if I wanted to review one of theirs. Of course I said yes! It took me literally all weekend to pick a piece that I really liked.

(I apologize for the blur)
I have a thing for Realism art. At my parents house, there are many pictures, and they are all of realism art. I'm not a drawer, nor do I want to be, but I remember growing up and always looking at the pieces and wondered how they painted such beautiful pieces that resembled something real. Those are the paintings I am a fan of. I chose Bogies Pub. It's a "Ruane Manning" piece. You can click the link to learn more about the artist if you please.

Fulcrumgallery.com has so many different categories of art for you to choose from. You can also choose from where you want the piece to go: bedroom, office, kitchen, ect. There will be selected pieces and you can browse through there, and if not satisfied, choose a category that suits you and browse. If you're like me, you could be browsing forever. You can also upload your own photos and have them put on canvas. That's a pretty cool option as well!

What I like best about fulcrumgallery is the prices. They are reasonably priced, and they come out quite nice. You also can choose different framing or mounting options. If you're not sure, you can always call or email and a customer service representative will help you out. I can tell you from my experience, I picked an "unstretched canvas" and pretty much as told that it was just basically the print. Which meant I would've had to go across the street to Michael's and would've spent a lot of money to get it framed. The woman I was working with, helped me with options, and what I received, I really like!

Not only can you purchase art, but they also offer: greeting cards, poster hangers, and wall mirrors. Fulcrumgallery is pretty much a one stop shop for all your walls needs. As much as I like going to art fairs, I like having the option of sitting online and browsing until I find the perfect piece, and there's no time frame for picking one out either. I used to recommend Kirklands to people looking for art... now I recommend fulcrumgallery.com.

drop2o Review

If you're like me and you drink lots of water throughout the day, every so often you want some flavor to it. I don't mind drinking tap water all day long, but every once in awhile it's nice to kick things up a notch and change my routine. I'll normally drink a vitamin water every so often, and I'll keep the water enhancer sticks with me too. I was able to try drop2o and this is added to my drink routine now.
If you haven't already guessed, drop2o is a water enhancer. They come with all natural flavors, and are sugar free. They are also sweetener free, and calorie free which is another plus! They offer six different flavors:
Watermelon Mint
Strawberry Mint
Peach Mint
Pomegranate Mint
Orange Mint
Spearmint Mint

I received Peach, Pomegranate, and Orange. It's crazy, they must have read my mind, because lately I've been drinking a lot of pomegranate sparkling water, and I really enjoy oranges and peaches in the summer time.
So basically you just squeeze one drop into your water and shake and then drink. I've tried the pomegranate one so far and I really like it. You can really taste the mint, but there's also a hint of the pomegranate which is good.
It's definitely a different type of flavor -- but it's really good. It also leaves a sense of mint aftertaste in your mouth, but mint is always a good thing, since mint freshens breath!

Right now you can buy this on amazon.com. Or if you want more information, you can follow on facebook, and twitter. If you're looking for a new way to enhance your water, drop2o may be for you!

Pure Raspberry Ketones Review




Are you looking to lose weight, and everything you're doing isn't working out for you? Summit Nutrition Pure Raspberry Ketones is a fat burner and appetite suppressant that might just be what you're looking for. There are no fillers, no additives, no artificial ingredients,and they are Vegetarian capsules. You're probably thinking, "another diet pill out there?". According to Dr. Oz, it's the number 1 miracle in a bottle to burn your fat.

I've been using other products to try and burn fat. I've been talking to different people to hear what they use, and crazy enough, no one has mentioned Raspberry Ketones yet. I love raspberries, and if they are the key to fat loss along with a great workout, then it's definitely worth a try.
My body has told me that the key to fat loss is a good diet and exercise. I like using protein shakes, and bars to help with the lifestyle. I'm not so sure how I feel about a pill. I'll have to do some more research before I try it out.
