Alternative Baking Company - One Smart Cookie [Review and Giveaway]

Remember my review of the Alternative Baking Company? Well I reviewed some of the amazing treats some time ago, and I can't wait to tell you about some more treats I had the chance to try recently.

The last time I reviewed some of the awesome, tasty "I can't wait for more" gluten free cookies. Well, this time I had the chance to try something called, "That's One Smart Cookie" made by the same amazing baking company. Check them out below -

I tried out Chocolate Chip and Coconut Fudge. And you know what? I thought they were pretty good! They are definitely not very sweet but actually I didn't mind. You know what I did? I stirred it into my yogurt (which gave it a major upgrade) and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. The chocolate chip has 7 grams of protein (and 8 grams net carbs) and the coconut fudge has 7 grams of protein. These were definitely a treat that needs something with it, like maybe a mild slathering of peanut butter or almond butter, or honey. As a stand alone treat, it won't be as sweet as you may like it. So definitely expect to pair these with something.

Overall, I am so excited to see what other goodies we can expect from this baking company. I think they have so much to offer the gluten-free world! Purchase "That's One Smart Cookie" by visiting this link and also feel free to like them on Facebook so you can keep track of when they're coming out with the treats in a store near you!

Also purchase other treats that are available for purchase online from alternative baking company, and you will be so happy you did.

Best of all, I get to giveaway a basket full of treats to one lucky reader. Enter via Rafflecopter below.  Giveaway ends 8/22.

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.
