Gluten-Free Treat Ideas: Hnina Organic Chocolate [My Review]

Chocolate is one of those things that is actually good for you, But let's be real though, some chocolates have more of a "wow" factor than others. Am I right?

So I had the chance to try some healthy rich chocolate made by a company called, "Hnina Gourmet." They have a mission to provide delicious and HEALTHY chocolate to all of us chocolate fans. Founded by Vanessa Morgenstern-Kenan, she decided to create chocolate of her own just because she couldn't find any quite good enough for her and her family. I think that's pretty awesome! Check out her story here.

I got to try out some amazing truffles and chocolate bars by Hnina Gourmet. Their truffles are so incredibly rich and they actually aren't too sweet. They are truly a healthy chocolate experience so you will actually feel REALLY good about yourself after enjoying this chocolate. 

I ended up wanting to try out this chocolate in baking and I bake muffins on the weekends usually. I broke up a chocolate bar and sprinkled in the top alongside some berries. And you guys, this chocolate cooks up GREAT! It inspired me to think up more creations and I would love to try out this chocolate with some hot chocolate. Yum! 

If you are curious about some great recipe ideas then here's a few that I think you will be inspired to create thanks to this chocolate - 

Homemade Smores Fudge Wedding Favor

Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Have your taste buds been activated??? Well, I highly recommend going online to Hnina Gourmet's website and selecting some of their delectable chocolates. Remember, they aren't overly sweet so this makes them great for healthy tasty snacking and also adding them to any recipes you feel inspired to create! Best of all, it's vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, and so many other amazing things!

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.
