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…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
