I absolutely love Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier because it really makes such a difference, and I think that is a must have for any household. Its compact size makes it easy for storing or displaying anywhere in a small room, without taking too much space. Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier is super quiet, very easy to use and clean, and provides a good humidity level for the room. This humidifier is very effective and beneficial for my whole family because it helps us breath easily and sleep better without stuffy nose in the morning. Sometimes I place it on the shelf next to the chameleon`s cage, and he absolutely loves chilling under the nice cool mist. When the container is filled with water and is turned up at maximum, it goes for around 7 to 8 hours and then shut off automatically which is pretty cool. We are using Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier every single day and night for a month, and I have not experienced any problems with it whatsoever. If you have kids and/or if you are in the market for a humidifier I would highly recommend Vicks® CoolMist Humidifier.

I was looking for some sort of multivitamin because it getting frustrated taking multiple supplements at once. I liked the Vitamin B12 by Nutrabear because they include nine essential nutrients and look just like gummy bears. They are also perfect for a healthy vegetarian lifestyle. I am not vegetarian, but there are tons of food I do not eat and that is why I needed something to boost my energy.

Big Slice Apples Review & GIVEAWAY


I have recently received a box with a big “Made in USA” sticker on it, and when I opened it, it felt like Heaven here. There were 8 different flavor pouches of Big Slice Apples by Grandma Hoerner. The packaging is so fresh and colorful and I could not wait to open and try  them all.

IMG_5985

Big Slice Apples by Grandma Hoerner

What the company has to say about their Big Slice Apples:  We’ve cooked up something pretty special to share with you. We started out making apples, big chunky slices slowly cooked in their own naturally sweet sauce, and then we had a groundbreaking idea. We put them in an on-the-go pouch, capturing all that rich, natural goodness and flavor of Grandma’s best in an industry-disrupting package.

We know you care about what you eat, so do we! Each flavorful pouch is a perfect portion of all natural goodness, off-the-charts flavor, and perfectly good-for-you ingredients. Here are some of the awesome attributes:

  • Non GMO (Pineapple Passion Fruit excluded as a Non-GMO product)
  • Naturally gluten & fat free
  • Shelf stable
  • Most under 100 calories (Pineapple Passion Fruit (110), Banana Mango (170), Caramel (110) )
  • Authentic heritage recipe

Whether you are going hiking, boating bike riding, or just enjoying a picnic at the park or beach, Big Slice will fit your lifestyle. These delicious pouches taste great as a healthy snack straight out of the pouch. Some of our favorite ways to enjoy them are:

  • On frozen Greek yogurt
  • On top of a whole grain waffle
  • Mixed into your hot cereal
  • Paired with a delicious summer salad

When you buy Big Slice pouches, we donate a portion of the purchase to the Sparkle charity – blessing women in need.

Big Slice Apples are available  in 16 amazing flavors in 3 different collections: pure, fit and luxe.

Pure

   Our Pure line was made with just one goal in mind – we wanted to create something simple and delicious. Amazing on Greek yogurt, granola, or all by itself, each recipe is made with pure fruit and spices gently blended together. If it was any more naked, we’d be handing it a bathrobe.

The Pure Collection contains 7 flavors: Orange Ginger, Apricot, Natural, Blueberry Pomegranate, Lemon Berry, Chai, Cherry Vanilla.

IMG_5984

I tried three of them:

NATURAL – Real. Pure. Bliss. Perfectly cooked apples. Simply amazing – just like you.

IMG_5988IMG_5963IMG_6006 IMG_5999

BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE – Check it out – thick slices of apples, pomegranate juice, and whole blueberries. Sure to become one of your faves!

IMG_5987 IMG_5969 IMG_6005 IMG_6004

CHERRY VANILLA – Succulent cherries, chunky apples, real Madagascar vanilla. This is a cherry pie – vamped up! Sweet and sassy – and surprisingly low calorie too!

IMG_5989 IMG_5967 IMG_6008 IMG_6010

Fit

Being fit doesn’t mean succumbing to diet fads – being fit is a lifestyle! Four different varieties promote energy, power, balance, and beauty. Toss one in your gym bag before spin class and go ahead with your fit self. 

The Fit Collection contains 4 flavors: Banana Mango & Hemp Seed, Peach Green Tea & Aloe, Pineapple Passion Fruit & Fiber, Raspberry Hibiscus & Green Coffee Extract.

IMG_5983

I tried three of them:

BANANA MANGO & HEMP SEED – Apple slices, mango chunks and -surprise- hemp seeds! This is your perfect protein! Whether you’re running a marathon, board meeting or after your child, you’ll be able to power through. Go girl!

IMG_5991 IMG_5974 IMG_6011 IMG_6013

RASPBERRY HIBISCUS & GREEN COFFEE EXTRACT – Wow! Apples, raspberries, hibiscus and green coffee extract! So amazingly flavorful! This combo will bring a joyous lift to your spirit and body.

IMG_5994 IMG_5976 IMG_6021 IMG_6023

PINEAPPLE PASSION FRUIT & FIBER – Delicious cooked apples, pineapple and passion fruit. They are all super high in fiber already. We pushed beyond and added more. We made fiber taste way good. 

IMG_5990 IMG_5972 IMG_6015 IMG_6019

Luxe

When it’s time to indulge, reach for a snack from our luxe line. Rich flavors and pure fruit. Decadent AND healthy? Yup, congrats! You’ve just found your new guilty pleasure, minus all of the guilt.

The Luxe Collection contains 5 flavors: Peach Bellini, Cinnamon Candy, Boysenberry Chocolate, Cinnamon French Toast, Caramel.

IMG_5982

I tried two of them:

BOYSENBERRY CHOCOLATE – The richness of boysenberries, chocolate fudge and apples mingle to satisfy your sweet tooth. Totally guilt-free – this is one treat your body will thank you for!

IMG_5992 IMG_5981 IMG_6024 IMG_6026

CINNAMON FRENCH TOAST – Apples, natural fruit juice, and a smidge of brown sugar transcend the ordinary. The ultimate healthy comfort food. All the indulgence of its namesake at a fraction of the carbs!

IMG_5993 IMG_5978 IMG_6029 IMG_6030

Big Slice Apples by Grandma Hoerner is the perfect on-the-go  healthy and amazingly delicious snack. Each pouch was so fresh and tasted unique and full of flavor. I wish I had unlimited Big Slice Apples. I could eat them all day every day forever 🙂 They are probably  the best healthy snack I have tried. Honestly! I am addicted to them and can not wait to try more flavors and purchase again the once I tried already.

IMG_6033

I would highly recommend everyone to try them at least once in their life, but be careful because they taste fantastic and are very addictive.

Each pouch is 4.5 oz/128g ($2.50) and they are also available in sharing size of 19. oz/538g ($5.95) jars.

You could take Big Slice Apples by Grandma Hoerner anywhere with you. The only thing I wish it was different is the packaging. I think that these apples are great snack for my 2 year old and when I opened a pouch while we were at the park, he ate a little bit and wanted to save the rest for later. Unfortunately (for him) I had to eat them, because the packaging is not resealable and it does not allow to reclose it.

Availability: Select Target and Grandma Hoerner’s home webpage.

If you would like to win your own box with 8 different flavors of Big Slice Apples by Grandma Hoerner, all you have to do is follow this blog, Subscribe to my YouTube Channel, Like my Facebook Page, Like Big Slice Apples Facebook Page and write on their timeline that Diana Reese sent you. Giveaway ends Dec 8th. Good Luck.

Number One Nutrition: Advanced Probiotic & Omega 3 Krill Oil

IMG_9898

If you hang out with me for a while, you will notice that I love my supplements. I have been taking all kind of supplements since I moved to New York. Changing lifestyles is not an easy job. I have to admit that I started to feel so unhealthy and most of the time super tired since I live here. I am not sure if it`s because of the fast food that I have been eating and all of the unhealthy food in general or the fact that I became a mommy and have less time for myself  or because of all  the air pollution  in NYC. Maybe it is because of everything together, but I do feel like crap sometimes. I`ve heard a lot about Number One Nutrition Supplements and really was so excited to try them. I have been taking Advanced Probiotic and Omega 3 Krill Oil for the past few weeks.IMG_9891

Advanced Probiotic

What are probiotics? Probiotics are good bacteria who perform a very important role in our digestive, methabolic and immune system. They produce enzymes that break down the food we eat, regulate vitamins intake and convert sugars to the essential nutrients our bodies need.

If you have ever experienced Digestive problems, Constipation, Auto Immune Disorders, Gl inflammation, Fatigue, Irritability the reason could be related to the low amount of probiotics present in your digestive system. That`s why it is so important to take a good Probiotic Supplement!

This is how The Advanced Probiotic may help, according to  Number One Nutrition:

– Drastically improve your digestive health.

–  Balance your intestinal flora.

–  Improve your mood.

– Break down allergy causing proteins.

– Accelerate your fat loss.

There are 60 capsules in the bottle which equals a 30 day supply, if you follow the suggested use on the bottle, which says to  take 2 capsules per day with a meal. IMG_9895

Advanced Probiotic contains 10 Billion CFU’s and is a white powder in veggie-capsule form. I take 2 capsules every morning after a meal with a glass of water. They are easy to swallow and have no aftertaste if taken this way.

Ingredients: (For 2 capsules) Probiotic Bacteria 10.12 Billion Organisms Bacillus Subtillus 2.64 Billion L. Rhamnosus 1.36 Billion L. Casei 1.36 Billion B. Longum 1.36 Billion L.

Price: $19.99  Availability: Amazon 

IMG_9892

Omega 3 Krill Oil

What is Krill Oil? Krill Oil comes from Krill. Krill is a small shrimp specie, the main food source to many omega 3 rich fishes. Number One Krill Oil is a top supplement which is proven to help improve heart health, joint pain, lower cholesterol and ease PMS symptoms.

KRILL OIL  x  FISH OIL

–  Krill is a Natural source of Omega 3 – 6 – 9
– Studies show that Krill oil is 3 times more potent than fish oil.
– Clinically Proven to be 37.2% more absorbed by the body than Fish Oil
– Contains Powerfull Axshantin Antioxidants
–  Dr. Oz Recommends Krill Oil as a source of Omega 3
– Easy to swallow pills and no aftertaste or fish burps.

This is how The Omega 3 Krill Oil  may help, according to  Number One Nutrition:

Promotes Cardiovascular Health

Support Joint Health

Relieve PMS Symptoms

There are 60 softgels in the bottle which equals a 30 day supply, if you follow the suggested use on the bottle, which says to  take 2 softgels per day with a meal. IMG_9896

Omega 3 krill Oil contains 1.0 – 1.5 mg/g of Astaxanthin per capsule. I take 2 capsules every night after a meal with a big glass of water. The capsules are half the size of a fish oil capsule and they are easy to swallow. They have no aftertaste if taken after food with a lot of water.

Ingredients: Krill Oil 1000 mg Providing naturally-occuring essential fatty acids including Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 plus other Phospholipids and Astaxanthin. Other Ingredients: Gelatin, glycerin and purified water.

The Verdict: I have been taking Number One Nutrition Advanced Probiotic and Omega 3 Krill Oil for the past few weeks and I have no side effects of any kind. I do feel more energized and happier.  I believe that these supplements are making me feel better each and every day and I will continue taking them.

 

2 Degrees Snack Bars | Buy a Bar, Feed A Hungry Child

IMG_9780

I recently had the chance to try the 2 Degrees snack bars. If you are not familiar, 2 Degrees is a small food company with a big mission. They want to end childhood hunger around the world. For every bar sold, they feed a hungry child.

IMG_9782

Their snack bars are made with real fruits, toasted nuts and seeds, with ancient grains such as quinoa, chia and millet. They are all natural, gluten free, vegan, GMO free, Kosher and Low Sodium. The way these bars are made is very simple – they use only healthy ingredients, mix them in a bowl and shaped them using magic into delicious, nutritious snack bars. They offer four different flavors:

Chocolate Banana – Delicious vegan bittersweet chocolate, soft, dried bananas, crunchy rice crisps and heritage grains.

Apple Pecan – Dried apples, toasted pecans, figs, sunflower kernels and a hint of cinnamon.

Chocolate Peanut – Crunchy peanuts, vegan bittersweet chocolate, chunky peanut butter and a touch of sea salt.

Cherry Almond – Tart cherries, crunchy almonds, almond butter, plums and whole seeds.

2 degrees bars

I tried all four of the 2 Degrees snack bars and they are absolutely amazing. They are very moist and seedy and the flavor is not too strong. My favorite one is the Chocolate Peanut, but they are all worth trying.

If you are looking for healthy and delicious snack bars, I suggest to give them a try. They will not only make you feel good because of all of the healthy ingredients, but also because you know that meal is donated to a hungry child.

You can purchase them here or now you have the great opportunity to try them, if you sign up for Love with Food box, which is monthly subscription service that sends you healthy, organic and delicious snacks every month straight to your door. They also donate a meal to a hungry child in America for every box sold. They partnered with 2 Degress for their July Box and for every box sold 2 meals will be donated. Check out what I received in my previous Love with Food boxes here.
