Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 17, 2017, In : Food Reviews 


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

When I hear the word “cheesecake” I generally don’t associate it with something that serious athletes would eat on a regular basis, and I definitely don’t think of it as a health food. But thanks to ANSI and their line of Gourmet Cheesecake Bars, I have been proven wrong.

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

Although now more mainstream than ever before, many people still view granola as that “crunchy” food that only the uber health-conscious eat – those who don’t care about taste but ONLY eat food for it’s health benefits.

On the flip side, many people “trying” to be healthy also eat granola and think they are really doing something great for themselves. As if eating granola for breakfast will make up for the junk-food bingi...

The Good Bean: Protein-Packed Chips & Chickpea Snacks that are Too Good to Pass Up

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

           

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

I’ll be the first to admit that snacking on chips, crackers, and the like has never really been my thing. This is especially true as I’ve gotten older and have become more and more educated in the field of nutrition and learned how the food we eat should be functional and not merely eaten because it tastes good (although that is obviously really important too!).

However, as I’ve become a mom, and now have a toddler who is constantl...

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...

Healthy treats seem like an oxymoron, especially when you hear that it doesn’t contain any gluten, soy, sugar or sugar alcohols, dairy, starch or grains. And even more, that same treat is full of chocolaty goodness, and yet is still low calorie, low fat and ultra-low carb.

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, April 13, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 9 MONTHS+

Pumpkin Seeds aren’t generally a food most of us think about eating year round. Long thought of as an unfortunate by-product of carving your own pumpkins come Halloween, there were always those adventurous few who decided to take the risk and try roasting them for later consumption. However, as was generally the case in my family growing up, a few handfuls got eaten while the rest ended up in the trash shortly thereafter.

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 5 YEARS+

Chocolate is one of those foods that just seems “to do it”. It helps us feel better when we are down, it curbs those sweet cravings that tend to hit mid-afternoon, and it even helps to give us a boost of energy when we feel like we need it most.

Whether eaten by itself, or as a component of another dish, there is no denying that chocolate is a go-to ingredient for most of us women. And best of all, many health gurus actually have added it to th...

Bliss Nut-Butters: Putting a Tasty New Spin On Peanut Butter

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and Toddlers 1 year+

Growing up, my mom used to always make me peanut butter and honey sandwiches for my lunches. And while I loved this combo, the peanut butter was not the healthiest of brands and the honey was nothing more than the bottled bear variety. Thankfully, I have grown to know a lot more about nutrition than I did back then and have discovered the health benefits of local honey and that your typical name brand peanut butter is actually filled with several in...

The Gluten Free Bar: Proving that Gluten Free Foods Don’t Have to Be Boring – or Tasteless

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 2 YEAR+

While many people believe that the whole idea of going “gluten-free” is just a fad, I believe that there really is science behind the idea. I mean, the fact that the wheat itself has drastically changed in purely a genetic sense (over the past 50 years or so), making it grow faster, taller, thicker, etc. should be telling you something. Don’t you think that must have some affect on how it is broken down and processed in your bo...

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 6 MONTHS+

I’ll admit that my first impression of a new type and/or brand of food is generally made in a two part assessment: first off, it has to taste good (duh!), and secondly, it has to be good for me, or at least not bad for me. However, as I’ve become a mom and begun to think about the future for my children and how what we [as a society] do today will impact the world around them, I’ve started to pay more and more attention to w...

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


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

When I used to hear the word “chip”, I would generally think about fried, greasy, and nutrition-less. Overly salty is another word that would often come to mind. Thankfully, companies have become much more in tune with the “health-conscious” population and started creating chips that were not only cooked in a more nutritious way, but that used much healthier ingredients as well. From Kale, to Snap Peas, to Assorted Root Veg...

Lily’s Sweets: Chocolate that Tastes Way Too Good to be Sugar-free!

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Thursday, October 23, 2014, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 4 YEARS+

The moment something claims to be “sugar-free”, two thoughts generally come to mind: 1) tasteless, and/or 2) filled with artificial sweeteners, preservatives, etc. and therefore, extremely unhealthy. And while I will admit that there was a time that I thought anything “sugar-free” had to be better for you, I thankfully have learned that this is not the case.

It’s amazing how popular coconut, and coconut-inspired, products have become over the past several years. With coconut water and coconut oil being at the forefront of these, coconut sugar has also started to gain a cult following, now replacing table sugar in many published recipes.

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...

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.

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.

Nuts are such an easy go-to snack, but it seems like they often get pushed back and forgotten thanks to the endless amounts of energy bars and other “healthy” snack foods that are on store shelves these days.

Ok, I’ll admit that I am not a true “dairy lover” and am not a big fan of a lot of the dairy-based products that are out there. And while this probably has a lot to do with the way eating dairy makes me feel (ie, not good!), I was never one of those people who felt like I was “addicted” to milk or cheese or other dairy-based foods (although I am definitely a sucker for some good frozen yogurt!).

I’m sure you’ve all heard how great nuts are for you and that you should probably be eating more of them. Filled with healthy fats, protein, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals, nuts not only help keep you full and satiated, but are such a convenient snack that can go with pretty much anything.

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.

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.

The majority of us know how important it is to eat healthy and how much better we can feel with a well-rounded diet.
