Love Your Health: Savory and Slightly Sweet Soy Nuts that are Packed with Nutrition and Great Flavor

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, September 26, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 12 MONTHS+

We all know that nuts are a great source of nutrition. Filled with healthy fats, fiber, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, there is no denying that nuts are a great snack. But did you know that there’s really not a ton of protein in a handful of nuts? In fact, you’d be eating quite a lot of calories in order to get a good amount of protein [from nuts] into your diet.

However, just ¼ cup of soy nuts can give you the sam...

Finding convenient and healthy foods that the whole family will enjoy is really tough, especially when it comes to feeding your babies and/or toddlers. I think that’s why peanut butter has been such a generational staple. Easy to use and simple to eat, it can be eaten as a spread, mixed in dressings and sauces, or eaten straight out of the jar.

However, with so many people developing peanut allergies, many have questioned the future lifespan of pea...

Super Eats Kale Chips: Like Regular Chips, They Just Happen to be Made out of Kale

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 18 MONTHS+

Trying to convince a chip lover to switch out their favorite snack for a piece of baked vegetable that looks like anything but a true chip is not easy. Trust me – I know from first hand experience!

From the way it tastes to the look and texture of it, Kale “chips” are definitely not for everybody. Even when they taste great, it’s often the look of them that scares consumers away the quickest.

The Founders of Super Eats Kale C...

Raw Revolution: Get a Little Raw in Your Life and Try These Organic Live Food Bars

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, September 15, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 18 MONTHS+

With the word “Raw” being a health-food industry buzz word for the past handful of years, it can be quite a challenge trying to figure out if the product you are eating is truly good for you, or is just another gimmick. And, if it is as nutritious as it states, it often will taste “earthy” and “healthy” – two words that aren’t exactly positive ways to express the taste of foods.

However, “raw” products really c...

Neat: A Meat Replacement that is Actually Healthy and Delicious, with a Great Texture Too!

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, September 12, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 7 MONTHS+

I’ll be the first to admit that the vast majority of meat replacements are not good. In fact, they are down right disgusting! My take has always been that if you are looking for something to replace your meat products one-for-one, by having it taste and feel like actual meat, you aren’t going to find it. These products are generally filled with hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (whatever that is!), fillers, preservatives, etc. to make...

Like many, I was a bit skeptical when hearing about quinoa for the first time. But after trying it, I was hooked. And while it used to be pretty hard to come by, it seems like every where you turn these days there is some kind of quinoa-inspired product or menu item.

As one of the only plant-based proteins that contains all 9-essential amino acids, quinoa truly is a star in its field. Great as a savory dish or to eat in a bar or “bu...

Once Again Nut Butters: So Fresh they Taste Like they Were Made Just for You

It has long been said that you shouldn’t introduce your young child to [possibly] allergenic foods at a young age because they will be more likely to have and/or develop an allergy to them. Peanut butter and tree nuts are usually at the top of this list, as are eggs, shellfish, and several other foods.

Fortunately this advice has recently been altered, saying that it is no longer necessary to wait on introducing these foods as long...

Navita’s Naturals: Bringing the World’s Greatest Superfoods Straight to Your Pantry

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, September 2, 2014, In : Food Reviews 

 

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 6 months+*

I admit that the word “superfood” has gotten to be an overplayed buzzword in the past couple years. In fact, many people are starting to put it right along there with “all-natural” – a basically meaningless word that companies use to exploit consumers.

However, when it comes to superfoods, there really is meaning behind the madness. Superfoods are called that for a reason. The easiest way for me to explain the word is this: a nutrient-d...
