Summer Truffle Flavors Are Scrumptious

What Is A Truffle

Is a truffle a MUSHROOM or CHOCOLATE?  Good question and the answer is both!  Now yes the truffle is well known in the culinary world has a mushroom, but we are not going to be talking about that kind of truffle today. Ever wondered where do truffles get their name from? Well, the word “truffle” comes from a Latin word meaning “Lump.” Truffles are lumps of goodness that is for sure! Truffles are made from a dough- not just chocolate which I didn’t know.

I’ve only eaten chocolate truffles in the past but Fanca Rebecci truffles opened my eyes to all kinds of flavors, amazing summer treats.

Perky Jerky Best Tasting Jerky On Earth

Perky Jerky Bold Flavors and Tender Texture

My family loves Jerky but some brands are far better than others and we found the brand we like Perky Jerky! They just introduced a new product that takes this brand to another level, we now can enjoy PORK.  They already do beef and turkey but bringing the pork is going to blow the competition away!

Perky Jerky Best Tasting Jerky On Earth

 

Please look for Pork Perky Jerky in the stores in June 2018. Look for at Whole Foods, Target, Kroger, ShopRite, and Publix. 

Perky Jerky Best Tasting Jerky On Earth

Perky Jerky has the most tender (for real too), flavorful, and bold taste indeed. I enjoyed the texture of the jerky the most, so tender and not so chewy.  Yes, I know jerky is chewy but sometimes too chewy but not Perky Jerky. There are less than 80 (or less) calories per serving, low-fat, 8 grams of protein and gluten-free! Natural ingredients make this jerky the best tasting jerky on the earth. Also free of nitrates, preservation’s, and has no added MSG.

Jerky SNACK ATTACKS

If you are looking for high protein, low carbs snacks then you need to get you a couple bags of Perky Jerky.  Sitting at my desk all day I tend to get snack attacks all day and so I’ve been pulling out Perky Jerky bags and it just hits the spot. Also, I was able to try out the TURKEY STICKS- oh my these are so good.  I love that they are perfect for my purse and so when I need a snack, grab a turkey stick.

The new pork jerky flavors are Moutain Maple (my favorite), Asian Five Spice (kids favorite) and Coconut Curry. My favorite is the Moutain Maple and yes I ate it for breakfast on the go one day. Perky Jerky nailed the pork because they use high-quality cuts of pork, the marinating process and using natural ingredients makes for a tasty snack. I will admit I like the texture of Perky Jerky.

I love the name brand hazelnut spreads but I rarely partake in them because I know they aren’t the healthiest. There are rare occasions that I like to indulge, so I tend to buy a jar to enjoy with fruit. However, did you know there is a better option?

I am so excited to share the guilt-free hazelnut spread with you! Yes, a product does exist! You can still enjoy a sweet treat!

As the mom of four little ones under six and under I’m bad about not taking the time to do things for myself, or I don’t always put myself first. I’ve decided that lately, I needed to take time to change that because as a parent I’m important too.

How can I make sure to treat myself?

Celebrating National Snack Day With a Bang

Celebrating National Snack Day With a BANG

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Did you know that March 4th is National Snack day? I didn’t either but I’ve found some awesome snacks that I think you and your family will love. So let’s get down to the tasty goodness!

Now I have four kids ( ages six, four, two and three months), three of which are old enough to love snacks. I’m pretty sure that

“Can I have a Snack mom”??? 

is the number one thing I hear in my house every single day. So I’ll start with some of our favorites in this household.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks

Go Organically Fruit Snacks:  These are one of my kid’s favorite snacks by far! These tasty treats are USDA-certified and made with real fruit. At 70 calories each, I don’t mind giving them to my kids when they are in need of a snack.

Keeping with the fruity theme another go-to snack here is Welch’s Fruit Rolls. Did you know that fruit is the first ingredient? My kids love them and can’t get enough. I don’t feel bad sending these to school with my oldest daughter to school because I know that there is nothing in it to set off an allergy attack because she has so many allergies.

Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes

 

Another favorite here is the Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes. These are so great, helps keep your little ones full while at home or on the go, these are perfect to just put in your diaper bag or a school lunch. They are great for breakfast for your little ones too. This perfect snack is whole grain, vegan, and gluten-free. A great choice for any time of the day for sure.

So now that we have covered kids you ask “Well what’s a good choice for me”? I’ve found some I think you’re defiantly going to like.

Sparkling Ice is your option if you want to cut out the soda. For me, its all about the fizz and this carbonated drink is a great switch. It has zero calories and zero carbs. Its got Vitamin D and B-Vitamins along with antioxidants. There are over twenty flavors, from lemonades to teas. My favorite is the Black-Raspberry!

If you’re always on the go like I am, sometimes I honestly forget to stop and eat, which isn’t great but its life as a mom sometimes. Well, Gaea Veggie Snacks are great on the go option for that busy lifestyle. They offer Pickles ( My Favorite! ) carrot and cauliflower.  They are all natural and resealable and are great on the go snack.

Carrington Farms line of Paks

Carrington Farms line of Paks is great for adding in some extra nutrition in almost any product! Mix in water, smoothies, or sprinkle over some ice cream, great for keeping you fit and full.

Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. I love it so much, that I don’t limit eating it to the early morning hours, either. Breakfast foods are delicious no matter what time of day or night it is, even the wee hours of the morning are prime breakfast eating, in my opinion.

However, some people have to be a little more careful than others about what they eat. Increasingly, I’m seeing more and more in the media about those who suffer from gluten sensitivities that cause health issues aggravated by certain food products. My sister-in-law lives with this condition and has to be careful about what she eats. Fortunately, I’ve noticed a marked increase in the gluten-free food products available at the grocery store (even in our relatively small town). The newest line of gluten-free food I’m currently trying in our home are Start Right™ Foods Belgian Waffles and Waffle Slider Breakfast Sandwiches. (Spoiler alert: This brand is going on my “good” list!) [read more]
