Sambazon: Making it Easy to Enjoy Organic and Non-GMO Acai Bowls at Home

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, May 29, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

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

The first time I had ever heard of Acai was at a surf contest I attended years ago in Huntington Beach, CA with one of my Brazilian friends. “You’ve got to try this stuff! It is from Brazil and tastes amazing. It is so good for you!” I can literally still hear her accent…

Well I did try it and thought it was great – but that was the end of that. It was impossible to find anywhere and most people who I mentioned it to had never even heard of it.

No...

Kuli Kuli Bars: Born in the Heart of West Africa and Brought to You Thanks to the Moringa Leaf

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


When your hungry, how often do pick up the food you are about to eat and think, “Hmmm, there must be a story behind this product?” Probably not often. And frankly, I didn’t either until I’ve recently started thinking about creating my own. (But that’s for another time…)

Most products do actually have a story behind them, and a passion from the person who created them – whether it be a product, a food, a beverage, or pretty muc...

Taste of Nature – Organic Bars that are So Close to Nature You Can Literally See It

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 23, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


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


The majority of nutritional bars and other snack bars are so overly processed that you would never be able to guess the nutrients based on just looking at them. In fact, there are usually so many additives, artificial flavors and other fillers that you can’t even tell by tasting them what they’re really made of.

Well thanks to Taste of Nature and their 100% Certified Organic snack bars, you cannot only taste, but literally see the differe...

Square Bars – Healthy Chocolate Bars at Their Finest

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

If only healthy eating were more enjoyable… With sweets and snacks, and all of those “sinful” treats, eating loads of junk is so much easier, and often much tastier, than eating the healthy stuff. At least that’s the way the majority of American’s think.

And now add to that the fact that you are pregnant, or are constantly chasing a little one around, and all those “convenient” snacks become all the more appealing, if not down right irresistible!

But just because you want to ea...

18 Rabbits: Granola and Granola-based Bars for Both You and Your Little Ones

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, May 19, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

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

Granola is one of those foods that has gotten a bad rap over the years. From being a food that only “crunchy” people eat to one that is not really good for you at all – thanks to all of the added sugars, chocolate, etc. that brands throw in there to make it more appealing – it seems that granola is one of those foods that you either like, or you don’t.

I personally [used] to fall in the later category due to all of the added sugars and high amo...

Veggie Go’s: This Organic Fruit & Veggie Version Wins the Taste Test. No Fruit Rolled Up Here.

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 16, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


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

I was one of those kids that always brought my lunch to school. Every day my mom would pack a lunch for my two brothers and I, and off we went. Even when I was in college I would bring my own lunch. It’s what I was used to, and how I liked it.

From sandwiches to chips, to some kind of fruit, this is what we used to think of as a well-balanced lunch. And hey, compared to a lot of kids’ lunches, it was. My favorite part? Definitely the f...

Truce Cleaning Products: Naturally Clean Every Inch of Your Home

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, In : Product Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

Growing up my mom never thought twice about the cleaning products that she used around the house. She just wanted ones that would “get the job done”. From Clorox Bleach to Windex, these were the staples that she always had on hand.

And as I grew up and began to help clean too, I knew that the scents would burn my eyes and give me a headache, and the chemicals would severely dry out my hands, but my fix was to wear gloves and to clean faster – I never thought abo...

GoLo Foods: Healthy Substitutes for Commonly Unhealthy, Every Day Foods

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, May 12, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 


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

When a company boasts of being low-carb, I don’t generally think of it as an enticing label. This isn’t because I don’t care about my carb intake, I do, I just tend to associate the phrase with tough and cardboard-like, neither of which are things I want to use to describe my food. Gluten-free foods have also gotten the same bad-rap; foods that are tasteless and really not that appealing.

However, both low carb and gluten-free foods don’t just ref...

Planet Rice: A Healthier Take on Your Traditional Rice

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, May 8, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


FOR TODDLERS 9 MONTHS+, MOMS, AND MOMS-TO-BE

Rice has long been an everyday staple for civilizations around the world. From Old World Kings to modern-day sushi enthusiasts, there is no denying the popularity of this grain. And while white used to be the rice of choice, brown has recently gained footing thanks to its extra nutritious properties, including fiber and antioxidants, compared to the “stripped down” white version.

Yet, as many have come to realize, rice can get ...

Veggie Evolution: A Unique Alternative to Getting Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, May 5, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


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

There is no denying the amount of health benefits you can get from eating your veggies. This is why most American’s will add a few pieces of broccoli to their plates, or put carrots alongside their butter-drenched twice-baked potatoes and hefty steak. Not exactly what should be considered a “healthy” meal, but somewhat better than nothing – I guess…

However, vegetables aren’t one of those things that most people really enjoy ea...
