Coffee Suggestion: Ethical Bean Coffee - Tasty Coffee, Doing Good for the World [My Review]



I'm such a coffee fanatic and any chance I can find a new coffee company, I'm all over it to try out their coffee! I came across "Ethical Bean Coffee" lately and was so happy to try out some of their dark roast coffee.

One thing that makes Ethical Bean Coffee stand out is that they make their coffee using fairtrade certified organic beans. This means that they are using an alternative system to produce and trade coffee.  And Fair trade regulations ensure that participants are operating in a fair and just manner. Find out more here.

Plus one thing that is extremely cool about Ethical Bean is that you can actually track your coffee's journey from farm to shelf! I think this is so amazing. I love how they are uniquely creating a way for you to connect even more with your coffee. This is the first time I've ever seen anything like this and it makes me want to buy the coffee so I can give it a try!



I had the chance to try out their Superdark French Roast and their Ethical Bean Bold Coffee blend. You know,  I absolutely enjoyed both. They have such rich coffee and it was so flavorful. Sometimes with dark roasts the beans end up tasting so burnt and I can't enjoy it. But these roasts were so rich.

Right now you can buy their coffee on Amazon and it costs about $10-$11 right now. Considering the quality of coffee you are receiving, this is absolutely worth buying. If you are a dark roast fan, you must try their dark roast coffees. You won't be disappointed! I also think you should check out their medium roast coffee even because it's such a good company.  Purchase their coffees now.

One lucky winner will receive a case of Ethical Bean coffee! It will be 6 bags of their whole bean or compostable pods. Enter to win via Rafflecopter. Ends 3/17.

Be sure you like them on Facebook  and follow them on Twitter.

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…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
