This Bar Saves Lives: and it Tastes Really Good Too

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, April 30, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 


FOR TODDLERS 2+, MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

Usually when we are hungry we only have one thing on our minds – ourselves and how we our going to feed our growling stomach. But what if every time you fed yourself you were also benefiting someone else and helping to feed their hunger as well?

That’s the idea behind This Bar Saves Lives, because in reality, that’s what you are doing. By feeding yourself you are indirectly giving a packet of food to a child in need (through a third...

Yogavive – Organic Mango and Apple Chips with 10 Different Flavors to Choose From

FOR TODDLERS 1+, MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

My toddler loves his fruit. From berries to watermelon and pretty much everything in between, give him a big bowl of fruit and he will be happy. However, carrying around fresh fruit with me everywhere I go isn’t always convenient, and is a bit messy to say the least. And while dried fruit is a good stand-in, the sugar content is generally pretty high and I like to “regulate” his raisin (and other dried fruit) obsession to no more than ¼ cup a day...

Simple Squares – Simple Ingredients. Simply Delicious.

FOR TODDLERS 2+, MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE 

When it comes to food, less is often more. And this isn’t just in reference to quantity, although that applies here as well. Simple food really is a healthier option, and if the ingredients are of good quality, it often tastes much better too (not to mention the way that it makes you feel).

From freshly picked fruit, to just cut herbs, to honey straight out of the comb, these natural indulgences all speak for themselves, elevating a simple meal or sw...

Wellements Baby: Organic Products for the Betterment of Your Baby

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Saturday, April 19, 2014, In : Supplement Reviews 

 

FOR NEWBORNS+

As a first time mom, there are a lot of unknowns going in. From the moment you bring your baby home, it seems like a never ending guessing game of “Is she hungry?” or “Is he tired?” or “Does she need changing – again!?”… The list goes on and on.

We all try to do our best and over time, we do learn what the different cries mean and generally what our child wants/ is asking for. However, there are still a lot of times, no matter how many children you may have,...

Just Pure Foods: Kale and Veggie Chips that Will Change the Way You View Snacking

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 1+ 

Vegetables are not something a lot of us crave or necessarily turn to when we need just a little something to tide us over. However, snack foods that are bite-sized, crunchy, and usually a little bit salty, are.

So when there’s a food that incorporates the two, and actually tastes good, it’s pretty great. And as a mom who is not only trying to eat the healthiest I can for my baby, but is trying to encourage the rest of my family to...

LIVE Kombucha Soda: Traditional Soda Has Truly Met Its Match

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, April 14, 2014, In : Beverage Reviews 


FOR MOMS AND MOMS-TO-BE* 

I’ll be the first to admit that Kombucha is an “acquired taste”. Often compared to a sweetened vinegar, it’s not a drink that the majority of consumers are going to choose to sip on.

The palatability of Kombucha has definitely developed over the years though, and not all Kombucha beverages are created equal. With that being said, trying to convince someone that they should switch out their favorite soda for a healthy Kombucha drink probab...

NestFresh Eggs: So Fresh You Might As Well Have Pulled Them From the Nest Yourself

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, April 7, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & BABIES 8 MONTHS+

I went a long time without eating eggs. I did eat egg whites and various egg-substitutes every now and again, but I always turned my nose up to the yolks and anything that included them.

Unfortunately the only excuse I have for this was my naivety and the thought that egg yolks are full of fat and cholesterol and therefore, will make you fat and unhealthy. Oh the joys of our teenage years... 

Luckily I decided to educate myself (eventually going on...

Lilly’s Hummus: So Fresh No One Will Believe it’s Store Bought

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, April 3, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & BABIES 7 MONTHS+

Hummus is one of those condiments that I don’t think gets enough hype. Serve it alongside vegetables or chips, as a spread on sandwiches, or on top of your favorite entrée; there really isn’t too many dishes that can’t use hummus in one way or another.

However, not all hummus is the same, and for those who say they don’t like it, definitely haven’t tried Lilly’s Hummus. As good, if not better, than homemade, and a lot mor...
