Apollo Olive Oil - Review and Reader Discount #OliveOil #Foodie



I think I have olive oil in just about every food I make - pasta, rice dishes, chicken dishes, you name it!  And it's always nice to find different places that make olive oil, especially outside of the usual brands I find. So I'm really excited to point out this great olive oil brand for you guys -

Apollo Olive Oil was started back in 1999 and family and friends have made up the "backbone" of Apollo Olive Oil. Their focus is on "working towards excellence, promoting health, and rediscovering the pleasures of good food and dining together." And if you need proof of their quality, they've won many awards over the years!

If you are wanting to do more with olive oil than just sprinkling some on pasta, and you really want to find out more about olive oil in general, Apollo Olive Oil's website has some great frequently asked questions that will help you with figuring out things about olive oil that you may not have known before! Things like "What does Extra Virgin Olive Oil" mean and "what should GOOD olive oil taste like"! Read the answer to those questions here.

I had the chance to try out a couple of their olive oils - the Mistral Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil  and the Sierra Organic Olive Oil. It's hard for me to really discern the taste of olive oil when it's mixed into foods but I can really taste the quality of this olive oil. This is much better than what I usually find in the store. Plus I love the aroma of these olive oils. I've tasted olive oil before that tasted greasy, and this wasn't that experience. This is obviously quality stuff. It is priced a bit high - each bottle costs about $19.95. But you know what? I actually think it's worth it. Plus I LOVE the fact that it is labelled organic, that is greatly appreciated.

To purchase the Sierra Organic olive oil, visit this webpage. Click here to purchase the Mistral Organic  Olive Oil.  Be sure to check out the recipes Apollo Olive Oil has posted to their website!

Best of all, all of my readers can use the code firsttimebuyer and receive $10 off their first order.

I received the above items 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 …
