Mike's Muffins - Gluten-Free Breakfast Option! [Review and Giveaway]

gluten-free, mikey's muffins

I had the chance to try these out recently and I couldn't wait to tell you about it! They certainly provide a healthier and unique twist on the English muffin. I love English muffins and since going gluten-free, I really thought I had to give them up! They are one of my favorite breakfast bread choices!

So when these came along I knew that I had a great find. I had the chance to try out two kinds - cinnamon raisin and toasted onion.  What I liked first hand about these muffins were the simple ingredients inside.

For the toasted onion, the ingredients include Eggs, Almond Flour, Purified Water, Coconut Flour, Toasted Onion Flakes, Baking Soda, and Kosher Salt.

For the cinnamon raisin, it includes eggs, almond flour, purified water, coconut flour, raisins, cinnamon, baking soda, kosher salt, and stevia.

I have to ask, have you ever purchased a flavored food product and notice that the flavor they are saying it is, isn't even in the ingredients list? I've noticed that before in some yogurts I've purchased and it bothers me a lot! So when I looked over these ingredients, I LOVED the fact that I actually saw TOASTED ONION FLAKES in the ingredients list for my Toasted Onion English Muffin! And then in my Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins, were raisins AND cinnamon! How about that??

Taste-wise, of the two kinds, I preferred the cinnamon. I am sure what helped me love it even more was the fact that I could easily add peanut butter to it. SO GOOD. I highly HIGHLY recommend putting these under the broiler to toast and taking time to make sure they get fully toasted. (The site also mentions this, but gluten-free bread takes longer to toast). I tried it under the regular toaster and it just didn't taste right. So make note of that.

I liked the toasted onion but it just didn't have the same flavor as the cinnamon kind, I thought. But to each their own!

Overall, this is one of the healthiest gluten-free breads I've seen out there and I hope to see them make even more kinds! Make sure you visit their website to find out where you can find Mike's Muffins in a store near you and you can also purchase these online, just follow this link. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

I'm also excited to announce that I get to giveaway a grand prize of one of each variety of Mikey's Muffins to one reader and two additional winners will receive a variety of their choosing. Enter via Rafflecopter. Ends July 19th.

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.
