Gluten Free Lunch Idea: Evol's Tasty Gluten-Free Meals [Review]

I only recently, within the last couple of years or so, discovered Evol food products. And thanks to my mom, I discovered within the last couple of weeks that evol spells "LOVE" backwards. How about that? So I really couldn't wait to try out Evol and share my opinion with you guys about the whole experience!
First of all, you must check out their mission statement. Something there spoke to me, because they said, "When did frozen food stop having food as an ingredient?" Half the reason I have become against frozen foods (aside from the fact that I've gone gluten free and many frozen foods have gluten in them) is that the ingredients in these meals don't even look tasty, appealing or like edible food products.

You can see by their food philosophy that they also have an unacceptable ingredients list and it's for this reason I really love their products. Check out what you WON'T be finding in your Evol foods.

Not all of their products are gluten-free, so for those of you not needing to worry about that, you definitely have your options to choose from them.

I had the chance to try out their Gluten-Free Beef Burrito, Gluten Free Chicken Quesadillas (with Guacamole!!) and Fire Grilled Steak.

First of all, I loved - LOVED - the chicken quesadillas. They were phenomenal and plus you get the best thing of all - GUACAMOLE! I love it. I was so excited to take this with me to work. It cooks up funky when you JUST microwave it, though. I noticed they do suggest that you heat it partially in the microwave and the rest on a pan but since I didn't have that option, I just cooked it longer in the microwave. It got a little crunchy around the edges but I certainly didn't mind. Also be careful if you use a paper towel to wrap your quesadilla while cooking it, because it might stick to the sides! So I would just cover it very it loosely.

Next was the gluten-free beef burrito. Also very yummy and VERY hearty. I usually am not a huge fan of beef, but this tasted good. I love a little hot sauce or salsa with burritos I have for lunch and it made it that much better. It isn't SUPER filling. Since I eat light during the day, I would recommend this for a lunch you take with you.

Actually my brother tried out the Fire Grilled Steak, since this wasn't a gluten-free item. This was also very good, he said! He also said it was hearty (and I can tell you it smelled good!).

Overall, you can tell I'm a huge fan of these food products. I am sure you will find Evol foods in stores and they have a lot to choose from. It's nice to see so many tasty options for gluten free people.

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.
