The Good Bean - Snacking at It's Best [Review + Giveaway]

I had the chance to review a variety of products from a company called The Good Bean.

I tried Jalapeno Cheddar Chips, Sweet Chili Chips, Sea Salt Chips as well as a variety of chickpeas including Smoky Chili & Lime, Thai Coconut Lemongrass, Sea Salt, and Sweet Cinnamon.






I will admit that I do love having something to snack during the day. I know chips probably aren't the BEST option to choose from when snacking, but sometimes, you know, you just got to have it. What I like about these chips and it's something I really could see happening with the Good Bean chips, is that they would be great for nachos. Because they are sort of strong chips, not the kind to wilt under the pressure of hot cheese. I haven't tried yet actually but based on the crunching and munching action that DID happen with these chips I can tell you they make great dipping chips.

Of all the chip flavors I tried, the Jalapeno Cheddar and the Sweet Chili Chips were my absolute favorite. They were SO flavorful and amazing. But The Good Bean also has some other flavors that I would love to try out like BBQ Bacon and Cheese Nacho. SO GOOD. I think what makes these chips unique is that they have good ingredients. Like the ingredients for the each of these includes a bean protein blend such as Chickpeas, Navy Beans, Red Lentils, and Red Lentils. They also have quinoa and I LOVe the fact that the Jalapeno cheddar chips includes ACTUAL vermont cheddar and jalapeno peppers in the ingredients list. Of course, check it out for yourself. 

Overall I'm really impressed. I mean if you are the type to love snacking you will want to give these a try. They are amazing.

Next on my review is the chickpeas! They were new to me and VERY CRUNCHY. Of the flavors I tried I liked the smoky chili and lime, and I think they tasted really good with soup. If you are gluten free and can't enjoy crackers in your soup, this is a phenomenal alternative. Overall these snacks weren't my favorite but they were unique tasting and I didn't feel guilty for having them. I vote that you should give them a try!

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!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
