Cappello's Review

Cookie Dough, Pasta and Pizza -- they are Gluten Free and Grain Free Products that Cappello's Offers. They are based in Colorado. Their mission: provide fresh, uniquely delicious options for gourmet food-lovers, healthy eaters and people with dietary restrictions.

Cappello's is sold in Earth Fare stores near me. I was lucky enough to receive some coupons to try out their products. Since I don't eat pasta, I was on the lookout for Cookie Dough and Pizza. I found the cookie dough, but not the pizza. I'll have to check out another Earth Fare around fourth of July time to see if that store carries it. -- So on my trip to Earth Fare, I bought some cookie dough. So easy to make once it's thawed out!
They were so chocolaty and so tasty! I ate one warm and glad I did. I brought some to work too and everyone really enjoyed them.

I love pizza so I'm really hoping that the next trip will have the cheese pizza they offer. The kinds of pizza they offer are: Pepperoni (my favorite), cheese, sheeps milk cheese pizza, and naked crust. They all sound good, don't they? The pasta they offer are gnocchi, fettuccine, and lasagna sheets. I should get some pasta since my husband likes it, but I want to try something that I will enjoy too. Maybe I'll get two types of pizza, or maybe I'll get another round of cookie dough since it's so good! All Cappello's products are paleo friendly, grain free and gluten free. You can find out more on facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Drink Nooma Review

After a long, hard, workout what do you normally reach for? Water, or some sort of supplement in liquid format? Either or works, but then there's Nooma. A clean, electrolyte drink that refreshes you in minutes!
A few weeks ago I worked out with my trainer for the first time in a long time... She worked my upper body quite hard.. when I was finished I was sweating and needing something refreshing. I remembered I brought two Nooma drinks with me... one for me and one for my trainer. We both tried it for the first time and smiled. It was so tasty and was definitely needed. Not only do you taste the pure coconut, but you taste the flavor of the drink. I tried the Mango and she tried the Cherry Lime. I drank the whole thing! I love mango, and I love coconut water, and it was definitely a refreshing drink that was needed.


"When you workout, you sweat. When you sweat, you lose water and electrolytes. So to stay hydrated, you need to get your fluids and replace these minerals. Most importantly, potassium and sodium.
All of NOOMA’s electrolytes come from the earth. We decided we’d rather use ingredients you’d find in your kitchen over a mineral blend formulated in a lab. Our high level of potassium comes from organic coconuts and the sodium is sourced from natural sea salt.
This simple, yet effective blend of electrolytes means your body’s fluids are kept in better balance and you’ll be saying goodbye to dehydration, cramping, headaches and muscle fatigue."

Nooma has four flavors: Cherry Lime, Blueberry Peace, Mango, and Chocolate Mint. All are fabulous.
I was browning their website today, and you can use the drinks in smoothies. I'm on a huge smoothie kick lately, so I'll definitely be trying some of them out and even some of my own creations! If you go to their website and start browsing and want to buy some.. if you type in your email at the bottom of this page.. you can sayve 15% on your first order! Find Nooma on facebook, instagram, and twitter.

Brandini Toffee Review

Mmm Toffee... what a great creation and what a great dessert! I love toffee...

Brandini Toffees most important ingredient is "passion". When you read a line like that you know you're going to get something good. " Brandini Toffee began with a simple act of encouragement; a family friend who inspired a young confectioner to pursue his creative passion for making sweets with a lesson in how to make toffee. Perfecting his recipe over time, the toffee became the aspiring candy-maker’s gift of love and chocolate decadence for holidays, birthdays, and just-because occasions for family and friends. This confection made with affection would soon become the catalyst among two life-long friends and their families to share their scrumptious gift with people around the world."

The toffee has become a featured favorite on Oprah Winfrey's O List, Martha Stewart, and the Food Network. -- When I opened up my tin of the toffee bites, or "Brandini Bites" I was in heaven. Just look at how amazing this looks.
Pure heaven. I like eating my toffee cold.. I don't know why but I do. It's great either way though. I could pretty much eat the whole tin, but that wouldn't be right, so I have a piece after dinner each night. It's so incredibly good. Then I received the Cashew Almond Toffee Popcorn. -- Popcorn and toffee.. two great favorites in our household. The bag is almost empty!
Brandini's Toffee would make a great gift for any chocolate lover! They have so many gift options to check out! All I can really say is mmm mmm Delicious. A definite must try! Find out more on facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Lotion Sunscreen Review

The sun is really hot in NC. You almost need sunscreen every time you walk out the door... you definitely need it when you're laying at the pool or beach though! I learned the hard way the other week when the sun was out, but it was cold out... I didn't think I needed any sunscreen and then I came home and a few hours later my legs were BRIGHT red! Oops! I was sent some Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Lotion Sunscreen from #Crowdtap. It came at the perfect time. Yesterday it was at least 90 degrees out. It was really hot! I put some of the Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen I received and it definitely helped protect my skin against the hot hot sun.
Hawaiin Tropic not only protects your skin but the sunscreen smells good. I'm a huge fan of the brand.

The kind I received: here's a tid bit on this: "Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration Weightless has a unique breathable formula that feels as if it is barely on. The light, air-soft texture feels weightless on your skin, while hydrating silk ribbons provide 12 hours of luxurious moisturization, so your skin feels silky soft while being safely UVA/UVB protected". They have 15/30 spf. It also works well and smells really good!

You can buy the sunscreen at most stores or online. If you're looking for a good Sunscreen check out Hawaiian Tropic.
