Food for Good Thought Pizza Crust Mix - Make Your Own Gluten-Free Pizza Dough [Coupon Inside!] [My Review]


I had the chance to try out a pizza dough mix by Food for Good Thought (and sold by this great company bTizzy, which sells product made by people with disabilities). And I was intrigued by doing this, because I'm usually going out to buy pre-made crusts that are frozen so I was really eager to try something that had more of a homemade flavor to it.

I went out and purchased the few ingredients needed (not many at all - cider vinegar, olive oil (which I always have on hand), dry active yeast (found some that was gluten-free) and of course, water. 


When I started making the pizza crust, I made a tiny error in the first batch - I didn't follow the water amount directions! I added a cup of water, the directions called for 1 and 1/3. But it turns out, my accident, made the crust a consistency that I could more easily work with. The second time around I though the dough was a bit too liquidy and sticky.

But here's a premiere of how things went on that first batch -


You wait for a few minutes (about ten) and soon the pizza is ready to roll out for a dough. I didn't have a pizza pan to make this so I did what I could with a cookie sheet. I was pretty proud of myself for how this turned out. Check it out!


Then I put the crust in the oven for about ten minutes. Um, I ended up overcooking it JUST a tad (my fault, it became more like fifteen minutes instead ten) but overall, check it out -


And here's the near end result -


Check it out! It totally looks like a pizza! What I liked about this is that it wasn't a messy involved process and it was fairly easy to make. I did it on a Saturday night when I knew I would have the time and energy.

Plus, I think the dough turned out to taste great. I loved the rosemary flavor and the nutty quality that the garbanzo beans gave the dough (it's made with garbanzo bean flour!). I think this was one of the more better tasting pizza crusts I have had in a while. In terms of the process of making it, I think I need more practice. Ha! But I am interested to try again (maybe with a pizza pan and different pizza sauce!) and see how things turn out.

Again I would recommend not adding as much water as mentioned in the directions (maybe a bit more than a cup of water but not so much a cup and a 1/3). My second pizza I didn't photograph because it was a little...odd looking.  But I can't wait to try this again and I highly recommend purchasing it today at bTizzy by visiting this link. Best of all, you can use my discount code for 15% off - UFANCY15

Special thank you to bTizzy for letting me try out this pizza dough. I received the above product in exchange for my honest review.

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 …
