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…

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 …
