Raw Balls by Simply Dara: Tastes like Raw Cookie Dough, Only Healthier!

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 29, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

        

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 2 YEARS+

I’ve got to admit, there’s nothing quite like raw cookie dough. Taking me back to my childhood of making cookies with my mom and then licking the bowl clean, there’s  something so nostalgic about it [and tasty!] that I just can’t ever seem to get enough. With that said, I can’t tell you the last time I actually ate the good, old-fashioned stuff, since I no longer eat butter, white flour, white sugar and/or raw eggs.

However, I have...

O3 Chia Premium: Chia Seeds and Supplements that are Great for You

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 7 MONTHS+*

Chia seeds are one of those foods that have gotten a lot of buzz lately. Packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, as well as other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, these tiny little seeds really can be considered a superfood (aka, a nutrient-dense food that packs a ton of nutrition with a relatively small calorie count).

Like most foods, however, not all chia seeds are created equal, as some brands are definitely higher qu...

SCD Probiotics: Liquid Probiotics that Help Keep Your Gut in Check

For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 2 YEARS+*

Supplements are a dime a dozen these days with more and more companies popping up on a weekly basis, all promising to deliver exactly what you're looking for. Whether it be a multi-vitamin, Omega-3's, or some other "answer to your health concerns", I can't imagine there being a shortage of supplemental options any time soon.

However, how do we know which companies really are as great as they claim to be and that their products actually do what they ...

The Gluten Free Bar Bites: Perfectly Portable. Perfectly Delicious.

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 15, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 18 MONTHS+*

Back in January we did a review on the Gluten Free Bar (GFB). The response was great and everyone seems to love them. My only issue with them: is there is a bit more sugar (per serving) then I generally like to eat. Granted, it is low-glycemic organic agave, but still… Plus, sometimes you just want a “bite” of something rather than a full on bar (which is why you’ll find half-eaten bars in containers around my house :-/)....

NOW Real Foods: a Brand You Can Trust, Foods You Will Love

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, May 14, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & BABIES 7 MONTHS+*

(As is obvious through all of my postings, blogs, etc.), I am all about foods that are not only healthy and nutritious, but that also taste great and that your whole family can enjoy. Whether just a couple products or a complete line, I think that quality is key and that companies who really pride themselves on using the best ingredients without compromising taste – or their integrity – are the companies that I want to support an...

MELT Organic: The Healthy Butter Alternative You Can’t Help But Eat with a Spoon

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

 


For MOMS,  MOMS-TO-BE, & BABIES 7 MONTHS+*

Butter is one of those foods that I haven’t eaten for pretty much as long as I can remember. It’s just always been one of those foods that I’ve tried to steer clear of, even before I went dairy-free. In fact, I used to prefer margarine as my “butter substitute” of choice, back before I knew how unhealthy that chemical-laden stuff was as well.

However, since I’ve become educated on different fats and the importance of having a combination...

Two Moms in the Raw: Cookbook Review

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 8, 2015, In : Product Reviews 


THE BACKSTORY: Two Moms in the Raw is a family-owned gluten free, raw food manufacturer located in Boulder County, Colorado. Starting out as a natural path to wellness after Shari Leidich was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2004, the raw treats she began to make for herself became so popular with friends and family that she decided to share the goodness even further, getting help from her own mother, Marsha, along the way.

After lots of sales from the back of her car to parents of her chi...

Kombucha Wonder Drink: Organic Kombucha Teas that Don’t Have to Be Refrigerated – Genius!

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 6, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


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

There’s no denying that I’m a big fan of kombucha. From the way it tastes (yes, I do really like it!), to the way it makes me feel, kombucha is one of those products that I literally have every single day. Even while pregnant*, this sparkling, fermented tea can do wonders for your health.

And it’s not just me that feels this way. Over the past few years, the popularity of these ancient “wonder drinks” has exploded. Once onl...

Raw Food Central: Raw Chips & Crackers that are Simply Delicious

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, May 4, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & BABIES 10 MONTHS+*

It seems like everywhere you turn there is a new brand of kale chips, flax seed crackers, or some other healthy, raw snack that you “must try”, promising to convert you from your fried-snack-food-loving self, to someone who only eats foods cooked below a certain temperature, doesn’t drink anything but water, and exercises 5-6x per week.

Well frankly, no matter what a company “claims” about their products, there really is no “miracle food...

Moms, it’s Time to Drink Your Way Svelte (by CalNaturale)

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, May 1, 2015, In : Beverage Reviews 


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

No matter how busy and hectic your life was before, once you have children you realize that the saying is true, “no job is harder than being a Mom.” There is no longer “sick days” or time for an hour lunch, your job is to always be “on” and there is no time to “take time”.

Because of this, us Moms often feel neglected or that we have to “let ourselves go” since our children are our first priorities. Exercising beco...
