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…

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 …
