Pereg Gourmet Review and Giveaway [Ends 1/25]

I am always on the hunt for healthy food items - particularly healthy food items that are gluten free, taste good, and aren't strange. A very difficult task I have to say!

I had the chance to try out some of their gluten-free noodles and their dried beans and I was pleasantly surprised! First of all they truly have a wide variety of options for both gluten-free and non gluten-free people, which I really appreciated. Pereg Gourmet was established in 1906 and is a family business passed down from generation to generation. You know how I love businesses that stay close like that, so I loved reading this!

For their gluten free noodles, I tried their quinoa spaghetti and curvo rigate. I also had the chance to try their black beans and chili beans.

I definitely enjoyed myself when I had the gluten free noodles. I would really suggest something creamy when you make it, because I had mine as Alfredo pasta dish and it was really good. I would say the taste of the quinoa noodles was hearty, a little nutty tasting and thick texture. I don't think I would have liked the curvo rigate with regular pasta sauce. With the quinoa spaghetti noodles I DID try them with pasta sauce but I added a lot of spices and included some ground meat so the flavor was really packed in there. I did enjoy them, too. I thought the texture was different than what I am used to but I really loved the flavor.

For the black beans and chili beans, I did enjoy those and I made them in the best time of year (when it's REALLY COLD there is nothing like chili or black beans and rice). I did their recipe for the black beans and it's more involved than what I would usually do for black beans. I'm thinking though you can modify the recipe any which way you want to. What I loved about the beans that I received they were quality. I especially enjoyed the chili beans, mostly because I had gotten the hang of how to make them!

Overall I highly HIGHLY recommend checking out Pereg Gourmet and purchasing their food. They have such great selections - you won't be disappointed! Plus their prices are really good and you can get amazing deals on spices (which can be EXTREMELY expensive in grocery stores). Make sure you visit their website and see what you can find to try!

You can visit Pereg Gourmet's website,  follow them on Facebook, and follow them on Pinterest. Also be sure to check out their recipes to get some tasty ideas!

I am also so excited to announce that I am giving away the curvo rigate quinoa noodles and chili beans! Giveaway ends on 1/25. Enter via Rafflecopter below.

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 …
