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!

Visit their website to shop for chocolate. Plus be sure to visit them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Also their blog has some great recipes that you must check out, here.

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 …
