Gluten-Free Treat Idea: Rickaroons: Enjoy Your Sweet Treats without Guilt [Review + Giveaway]

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to try out some amazing macaroons by this place called, "Rickaroons" and I can't wait to tell you about it. It started by a guy going gluten-free who wanted a cookie too. I totally have been there! And he also wanted to make the gluten-free treat pretty healthy too. And that's not an easy balance to find. (Read more about how Rickaroon got started here!)

Rickaroons are a flourless experience, which I prefer in my gluten-free treats. I also am so loving the macaroon experience of these treats as well and I think it's something you can buy without feeling guilty at all!

I had the chance to try a variety of flavors - Chocolate Blonde, Mint to Be, Mocha and Megaroon. I have to say that of all the flavors I tried, my favorite is a toss up between Mocha and Mint to Be. I love the zing of coffee mixed in with the mocha flavor but I love the spark of mint mixed with the chocolate of Mint to Be. The texture to the "Rickaroons" are a little grainy but I think it matches the unique quality of the cookie.

One thing that makes me really enjoy these cookies are their simple ingredients. Here's what's in the Mint to Be -

 Shredded Coconut, Almond Butter, Coconut Palm Nectar, 70% Dark Chocolate (Cacao, Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquer, Cocoa Butter, Tapioca), Cacao, Coconut Oil, Vanilla, Peppermint Extract

Can I just say that I'm REALLY happy to see that there is 70% Dark Chocolate in this? I'm so happy about that. I love all the great ingredients here - that's HUGELY important to me. Rickaroons take great care in their ingredients too and you cann tell when you see which ingredients they choose and what is so healthy about them - read about it here.

Overall, the next time you are in the store, find these Rickaroons and buy them (find out if they are in a store near you I know you won't be disappointed, especially if you are already a fan of macaroons.  If you can't find it in a store near you, purchase now by following this link and you can buy them online.

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 …
