Amazing Foods for Life Gluten Free Baking Mixes - Review and Giveaway [Ends 2/8]

Rarely do you find me doing a lot of baking, but one thing I have always wanted to find an easy solution to was making pancakes. It's not like I don't like them, but you have to make them one at a time most of the time and by the time the cook gets to their batch, everyone else is ready for more!
So I had the chance to try some baking mixes by Amazing Foods for Life and when I received their amazing pancake mix, I thought I would give pancakes a brand new spin.

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. After that, for the most part, the process is the same. You follow all of the directions listed out on the packaging. The only thing I added was about one teaspoon of cinnamon. I would also recommend about a teaspoon of vanilla extract too.

You take your muffin tin and you butter the tin thoroughly. If you have them, I recommend using baking cups, because although these pancake muffins don't stick to the pan, they are very light and you run the risk of them falling apart as you try to take each one out when they're done.

Anyways, after you've mixed the ingredients you feel each muffin tin with the pancake mix, with about 1/4 inch room at the top.



 
 
I baked these for about 15 - 20 minutes, but check on these to be sure they are done thoroughly otherwise they may come out gooey (and not in a good way) if they are out of the oven too soon.

Overall, I these pancake muffins were perfect. Also what I loved about them was the fact that they didn’t have a whole lot of sugar in them and they were extremely easy to make. I made these with the Amazing Foods for Life Pancake mix and I really loved this mix because of all the healthy stuff in it! Plus, it’s gluten free too and with the texture and flavor of these muffins, you wouldn’t even tell that they were gluten free.





I also had the chance to try their Chocolate Banana Muffin mix. It was good but I’m not a huge fan of the banana in it and next time I may try to make the banana muffin mix without the banana. Lastly, I made their cookies with their Oatmeal Cookie mix and this was really tasty as well!

I definitely plan on buying these for myself, especially the pancake mix. These were just amazing in general and I hope to see these in more stores. If you are a lucky Californian, you might just find them in a store near you. Just follow this link to find out
. For those of us who live elsewhere, you can find their products online and purchase them from their website. Also another major perk is that their prices are really reasonable. Each mix is about $6.75 and right now if you order 3 bags you can get FREE shipping! I plan on taking advantage of that!

Be sure to follow them on Facebook. And they have an maxing new design and one lucky reader will receive one of each of their products (certified organic and gluten free):

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Oatmeal Rasin Cookie
Pizza Crust
Sugar Free Pancake and Waffle (Sweetened with Stevia)

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
