Gluten Free Treat Ideas: Emmy's Organics Macaroons

I have to say the cookies I'm about to share with you didn't last an HOUR at home. We tore into them like there was no tomorrow. So I can't wait to tell you about them!

Emmy's Organics started out in 2008 when Samantha and Ian met at a musical festival. Later when Ian tried out a cookie recipe at his mom's kitchen (aka Emmy), Samantha thought these would look great in a little package and soon Emmy's was born. Emmy's Organics started in a small (certified) kitchen and soon running the business from a basement was no longer big enough for them to handle all the business coming in! Read more about their amazing and inspiring story on their website!

I tried out a few different flavors of macaroons - Dark Cacao, Lemon Ginger and Coconut Vanilla. Out of all the flavors I tried, my personal favorite is Lemon Ginger. I personally love lemon (in general) but in the context of a sweet treat it's even better. It's SO good and you can actually taste the lemon inside. I loved the Dark Cacao too - it wasn't too overly sweet and you can tell they used the good dark chocolate. I did like the coconut vanilla but the flavor wasn't as powerful as these other two kinds.

Overall I highly recommend these. Easter is just around the corner and I think this would make a perfect little addition to an Easter basket or heck just something to have as a treat yourself.

Make sure you visit their website and purchase your own macaroons! You might also be able to find them in a store near you, so click here to find out.

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…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar

Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
