Nana Joes Granola - Upgrade Your Breakfast! [Review and Giveaway]



I had the chance to try out some granola by Nana Joes. It was started by Michelle Pusateri who wanted to create something nourishing that she could eat in between surfing. I think that makes her cool in my book! She taste tested granola and voila! Here we have Nana Joes! Read more about the company here.

I got the chance to try out a few different granola types. 

The Trieftca Blend 

This has a variety of things in it - rolled oats, maple syrup, pieces of cocoa nibs, cranberries and more! Make sure you click on purchase now above to read the rest of the ingredients. It's gluten-free, and nut free too.

I thought this granola was perfect with yogurt. It wasn't too chunky and it blended nicely in my yogurt - wasn't totally awkward to eat with a spoon. I could really tell this was a healthier granola too - not a whole lot of junk in it, and that is greatly appreciated. It's a looser granola than what I usually see - not sure how else to describe it. 

Sunset Blend 

I enjoyed this one, but maybe not as much as I have others! It still tasted good, but I was hoping for a bit of a stronger flavor in the granola - or maybe I missed the added chocolate. Still good though and VERY healthy, you can tell. Also more of a looser granola than chunky.

Grain Free, Paleo Friendly, Urban Radish Blend

Okay this one surprised me by far and was DEFINITELY my favorite. It had little coconut chunks with the occasional nuts and dried fruit. This surprised me because I wasn't sure what the taste would be like. But I really really really enjoyed it - this is something I would buy again. It made for a great snack and something I could take with me separate from yogurt which I loved. It had so much coconut goodness! By far, I can't say enough, this one is for sure worth trying out for yourself. It's really unique too - not something I've seen before. 

Tony's Trail Mix

This was definitely good - very flavorful. I loved the variety of foods you get in it. I think this makes for a great snack too. Loved the big chocolate pieces (I'm such a sucker for chocolate!) and the dried fruit. The price is a tad steep considering you are getting a 7 ounce bag, but I kind of think it's worth it because of how much good stuff you are getting. This isn't your average trail mix.

Overall, I really like what Nana Joes has to offer and I'm sure going to look for this granola in stores. You can probably buy some in a store near you too! Check out this list. Also you can purchase online here as well.

I'm also happy to announce that I get to giveaway some granola to one lucky reader! Ends 9/29. 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 …
