Gluten-Free Food Ideas: Santa Cruz Peanut Butter Powder & My Surprisingly Positive Experience



When I had the chance to try out Peanut Butter Powder made by one of my favorite peanut butter companies Santa Cruz Organics, I was...reluctant. Peanut Butter POWDER? I'm imagining those big huge containers that you can buy in bulk at the health store, a nerve wracking container overloaded with these strange vitamins and odd things. So with great dread examined the packaging for ingredients.

And you know what the ingredients contained? Organic Peanut Powder.

No weird ingredients or overloaded additives. Just peanut powder. Immediately I started feeling pretty positive about the experience.

First taste test with the peanut powder is I added a tablespoon in my yogurt. I mixed it in with blueberries and cinnamon (with vanilla Chobani yogurt!) and I have to say that I was impressed! I could have added SO much more to my yogurt, it gave it a sweet extra something-something to the yogurt. It really enhanced the experience and just knowing I had that added taste made my yogurt extra amazing.

Since first having the chance to try out the peanut butter powder, I am such a new fan. It tastes so good to add into yogurt, it gives it an ice cream type of taste to me (it helps of course that I leave it in the freezer for a while)! And I love it so much. I am interested in trying this out with future recipes, because it's more likely to blend (texture wise) with a wider variety of recipes and give it a little extra something without an overwhelming PEANUT BUTTER taste. For things like smoothies, this is especially nice. And I'm really interested in trying the peanut butter powder out with some recipes like this Apple Peanut Butter Granola.

I HIGHLY recommend you go check this out, and I am definitely going to be check my local grocery store for this.Check out the Santa Cruz Organic website for more information on their peanut butter powder by visiting this link. Also make sure you check them out on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

And best of all I get to giveaway a package of peanut butter powder to one lucky winner along with some blogger swag! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends April 3rd. US Only.

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.
