Cucina & Amore - Tasty Food! [Review + Giveaway}



Happy Thanksgiving! What better time to talk about food than today, right? And I love the chance to try some foods that take me out of my comfort zone. And I found that opportunity with some amazing foods by Cucina & Amore. They sent me a few items that I can't wait to tell you guys about.



Cucina & Amore is a company that focuses their attention on healthy food. Isn't that awesome? Founder Ruth Wilkinson who wanted to create simple and healthy meals for her family. A mom, breast cancer survivor and a pretty obvious foodie if I do say so myself, she created this business to be the thing that she wanted to see in her pantry. Read more about the company over on this page.



First I had the chance to try out their Quinoa Meals. That was definitely a unique experience! I hadn't had anything like that before. They have a ton of different kinds to offer (check it out here!) and the thing I like about it is that it isn't too filling. I like a light snack kind of vibe for meals like this. I would highly suggest heating it up and one of my favorite was the Spicy Jalapeno and Roasted Peppers which was VERY flavorful.



Also I had the chance to try out a very unique salsa called Piquillo Pepper and Mango! I loved the smell if it because it had that hot salsa scent but also a mild sweetness thanks to the mango. It was so good to dip chips in and it was so tasty. I actually really recommend this! (Check it out here!)

I've gotten really into artichokes lately so I also enjoyed their artichoke bruschetta that worked so well with some of these gluten-free crackers I found. It's a great addition to any holiday pre-meal snacks that you may have prepared! (Check it out here)

A few other items I had the chance to try was their Truffle Sauce. I hadn't tried truffle sauce before and I really have to say I enjoyed it with rice and sundried tomatoes (just a little bit mixed in). That you guys was so good. I highly recommend this. (Check it out here)

Overall if you are looking for a great food experience, I would suggest Cucina & Amore. They have quality excellent tasting foods to offer and they are such good quality. I would say find out where you can find them in a store near you! Need some recipe ideas? They have some really good ones here! Make sure to like them on Facebook and Twitter.

I am so excited to announce that I get to giveaway a Quinoa Meal Box (6 meals in one box) to three lucky winners! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 12/16. US Only.


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 …
