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!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -

1) Jessica's Natural Foods Chocolate Chip Granola

2) Beanits Bean Chips Hint of Line

3) Betty Lou's Strawberry Fruit Bar

4) Health Warrior Chia Bar - Acai Berry

5) Betty Lou's Just Great Stuff Bar - Superberry

6) Brami Beans: Chili Lime

7) Ener-G Original Pretzels

8) Hippea's Organic Chickpea - Vegan White CHeddar

One thing I was so excited to see - Jessica's Natural Foods Chocolate Chip Granola! You actually get a really nice sized bag of granola as well. One thing I love about Jessica's Natural Granola is that it's soft, it's not really crunchy. And it's a really tasty snack.

The Beanitos were also a nice surprise for me too. I've had the chance to review them on this blog before and they are such a great snack chip. They come in so many different flavors and the fact that they are made from beans make them kind of guilt free for me.

The other stand out snack that I enjoyed was the Betty Lou's strawberry fruit bar. That was tasty. A little TOO sweet but I never really mind that problem.

As for the other snacks, I thought they were okay. I was a bit wary of the vegan options, such as the vegan white cheddar puffs and the brami beans. I almost wish in this snack box you could specify whether or not you need dairy free snacks. Although I do know a lot of people with Celiac Disease and who are gluten-interolant that can't have dairy. So I definitely understand the need!

One thing I really like about subscription boxes is that you get so much variety and you are exposed to companies you may not have thought of before. The price is about $24.95. Considering I received 8 items, I think this is a really great price.

If you know anyone who is vegan and gluten-intolerant who could use some new snacks in their life, I would introduce them to this snack box. Purchase now.

They also offer a gluten-free foodie box too which has about 7-9 full sized ingredients and food staples. This is a bit more expensive, about $36.95. But I like the fact that these are full sized, so check it out. Purchase now.

Be sure to follow them on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram .

I am also excited to announce that I get to giveaway a snack box to one lucky reader! Enter via Rafflecopter below. US Only. Ends 5/27.

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 …
