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…

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.
