ANSI Gourmet Cheesecake Bars – Reinvented: Cheesecake Has Never Been So Nutritious

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.

Canyon Bakehouse: The Best Gluten-free Breads I’ve Ever Tasted

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, December 22, 2015, In : Food Reviews 

  

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

Gluten-free bread can really be a touchy subject. While many of us are aware of the negative consequences that eating gluten can have on our bodies (read severe bloating and/or troubles in the bathroom), we frankly just aren’t willing to part with our favorite sandwiches or succumb to eating [veggie] burgers on lettuce buns for the rest of our lives.

And while yes, there are many different gluten-free alternatives out there that yo...

Looking for a quick and healthy treat for both you and your littles? Than you should definitely get your hands on one of the great flavors from GFB (Gluten Free Bar). We first did a review on their line of bars, but frankly, were a bit turned off by the amount of sugar in them (although it is still less than many of the other bars you find), and so wanted something a little, well, portable.

Finding a bar that really stands out from the rest is not easy these days due to the fact that there are 100s of different brands, flavors, etc. on the market. And with each one claiming to be better than the next in either taste and/or quality of ingredients, it really just comes down to personal preference in the end and whether or not you “care” how healthy and nutritious the bar actually is compared to the flavor profile.

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

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...

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.

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...

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 :-/)....

You Are Loved Foods: Healthy Chocolaty Treats that are 100% Paleo Friendly

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and BABIES 10 MONTHS +*

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.

Among Friends Baking Mixes: Helping to Make Healthy Baking Easier and Tastier than Ever

For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and KIDS 5 YEARS+*

I’ll be the first to admit that the idea of a healthy cookie is anything but appealing. In fact, most are extremely dense and pretty tasteless – or at least void of any good taste. And the same can be said for a great majority of other “healthy” baked goods too. Moreover, many of these foods aren’t really that healthy any way, but filled with lots of sugars, artificial flavorings, and unnecessary preservatives.

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, In : Food Reviews 


For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, and Toddlers 1+*

Claiming that something is “perfect” is a pretty bold move. Especially in a “bar filled world” where every company thinks they have the “next best thing”. From the perfect amount of protein, to the perfect taste or perfect calorie count, every company thinks that their product is just that – perfect.

But to call yourself “Perfect Bar” you must really be something special. Well if you look at the history behind Perfect B...

Finding a bar that tastes good is one thing, but finding a bar that is truly good for you and that will actually replace a meal is a whole other thing. Most “nutritional” bars really aren’t that nutritional at all, and are in fact filled with a whole bunch of unnecessary fillers, flavors, and preservatives that should hardly be considered healthy.

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

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...

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...

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.

Chickpeas (aka, garbanzo beans) have long been one of my go-to protein sources. From salads, to stir-fries, to pasta dishes, and of course hummus, chickpeas are an extremely versatile food that are also super healthy for you.

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.

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.

Having a well-rounded diet is extremely important. Carbs, protein and healthy fats should ideally be a part of every meal.
