Enjoy NatureBox with Monthly Snack Deliveries - Giveaway

How easy is it for you to find healthy snacks that actually taste good? I mean a real healthy-not those foods with tricky labels appearing to be healthy. By healthy I mean real ingredients and nothing artificial added. Snacks that have gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO options and still taste good. Have you found such snacks yet that you enjoy over and over? It’s hard.

Many labeled healthy actually add not-so-healthy sweeteners so they can call them sugar-free and keep that addicting taste. That’s cheating. NatureBox doesn’t cheat…at all and they are constantly adding to their snack list so you can find those healthy snacks you’ll want to eat. Start Here!

What is NatureBox?

It is a monthly club. Different than a subscription service you pay $5 a month is all and when you shop each month that same $5 fee is applied to your purchase or can build for up to a year. So you get your fee back as a regular customer. Shipping is free on orders over $25. We all know we eat more than $25 of snacks and desserts so spending only $25 a month is no real issue.

The Snacks at NatureBox

There are over 100 different snacks and new ones added each month so I cannot feature them all, but I did order one of their top sellers and I now know why it is a top seller. The Probiotic Power Mix is the best trail mix I have ever snacked on. I opened the bag during the Seahawks game this weekend and my husband and I dug in. He kept stealing all of the Greek Yogurt Diced Apricots. I love eating the cashews and pecans.

Trail mixes are not all you will find. Search their jerky, cookies, bars, crackers, meals, popcorn, coffee and more. It is fun to pick a few items each month and always have the snacks ready to pack for healthy morning starts or office munchies you don’t have to feel guilty about. There are typically specials for new members so head over! Shop new arrivals at NatureBox

La Tourangelle Artisan Oils Gift Packs

Product was sent for feature

La Tourangelle Artisan Oils Gift Packs

Authentic. Quality. Natural. These 3 words are how you describe the artisan oils  of La Tourangelle. They also make great gifts. You can either keep them together in the box or separate them to add around the inside of a gift basket. La Tourangelle is one of the last remaining mills still in operation today that roasts and presses nuts and kernels into oils based in Saumur, France.

They are priced very well ranging from $17-$31 for the 3-pack gifts. You are getting quality oils full of certifications you will love. These oils are certified gluten free, USDAOrganic, Non GMO, Kosher, Fair Trade and the nut oils are handcrafted in a California mill.

The choices are wide from Walnut or Almond oils to Pumpkin and Basil oils. Once you flip off the top, you get a handy spout built into the oil package. This makes using and storing so handy. I love to choose these oils for all dishes from serving with warm sourdough breads or baguettes to using in the wok with meats and vegetables.

Gift Ideas For The Foodies On Your List

I have partnered wit the following brands for this #HolidayGiftGuide feature

Gift Ideas For The Foodies On Your List

In this round-up of gifts for Foodies, I an excited to feature these 2 unique snacks. We have Meatcrafters Artisanal Skinny Salamis and Sanaia Applesauces. I have to say that my idea was to do a taste test and feature that for you on both of these brands but I can only partially do that. The Salamis arrived first on game day, with friends over and they tore into them faster than I can hide them. They were such a hit. So when the applesauces arrived I was a bit more stealthier and kept those aside so we can taste test those on camera for you.

The Taste Test of Sanaia Appplesauces

About Sanaia Applesauces

Sanaia Applesauces are made with organic green apples with the skins left on then add exotic fruits and flavors. These are fantastic for those who love flavor and natural foods. There are 6 flavors – Guava, Hibiscus, Tamarind, Lychee, Ginger and Lavender Pear.

The applesauces offer a more tart taste yet with the added exotic flavors to eat alone or even use to add to oatmeals and bake with. They are made to order so they ship right after a fresh batch. At only $3  a jar you can order all 6 flavors for a fun gift basket to gift.

About Meatcrafters Artisanal Skinny Salamis

Like I mentioned before these were a hit on a recent Seattle Seahawks gam day. The boys tore into these and started devouring them. I had one rule and that was to leave 1 of each out for me so I can get a sapling in too. Meatcrafters has salamis and sausages that are handcrafted and the Skinny Salamis are made with the highest quality meats and the finest herbs and spices. They are slow cured, antibiotic free and no added hormones.

There are six different varieties using Duroc Pork, Black Angus Beef and All-Natural Lamb. More flavors are coming soon. I love the Black Angus Beef!

Both of these products come packaged well enough to gift or add to baskets. Sanaia Applesauces can be ordered directly from their website and the Skinny Salamis are available on Amazon.

Get Some Goodness From Your Freezer

 

Get Some Goodness From Your Freezer

This summer my husband and I switched to a Paleo-style diet. We cut as many carbs as we can 6 days a week. That means no rice, bread, pastas and then on the weekend we have 1 cheat night. My husband is down 42 pounds and I did not have a lot to lose so I am already at my goal weight. The hardest part of eating this way was learning to cook with real foods, no more boxed and easy frozen meals. So, I want to share a brand we now keep in our freezer. Coastal Range Organics really helps us to eat healthier. Having Coastal Range Organics in our freezer is so great for quick and easy meal ideas that fit our menu.

Get Some Goodness From Your Freezer

Coastal Range Organics has many different varieties of organic chicken that include: crispy stripsbuffalo wingschicken nuggetspopcorn chickengrilled breast stripschicken burgers and others. We typically use the grilled chicken breast strips, chicken meatballs and chicken burgers because these options are not breaded. Our only grocery store in our small town is a Safeway and because they carry the Coastal Range Organics brand I can keep my freezer stocked.

Want a delicious, healthy and easy dinner idea? I used the Coastal Range Organics Meatballs and made a Korean BBQ dinner. I wrapped them in Romaine and added some feta, cabbage and cashews for a good crunch and put some veggies on the side. It was so easy and as we head out the door to soccer practice with my son it was an easy dinner for a busy night and fit our diet plan menu.

I won’t pretend I am savvy enough to create my own sauce. I found one online, here. Instead of standard brown sugar for BBQ recipes, I use half as much Truvia brown sugar blend and cut the calories by a lot. I make my sauces with coconut and sesame oils and only fresh herbs and spices. Because it was so easy to make the sauce and heating up these chicken varieties are quick and simple, I have dinner ready in no time.

The Giveaway

I would love to give you the opportunity to try these Coastal Range Organics products by hosting a giveaway. The brand wants to send 1 lucky reader of mine $80 in Coastal Range Organics Coupons. US Only.

**Please Note: Coastal Range Organics products are currently only available in Northern California, and at Safeway and Albertson’s stores in the following areas: Seattle, Denver , Salt Lake City and throughout Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. If this is you then enter below!

Featuring Honest® Tea for National Fair Trade Month

I have partnered with Honest Tea for the feature

October is full of recognition from Breast cancer to Non-GMO month. Did you know October is also Fair Trade Month? What does that mean? Simply put, we can stop to focus on who and where our products come from. In our part of the world we can celebrate brands like Honest® Tea and the retailers who support such brands; who support safe working conditions and the Farmers who crop without chemicals and pesticides.

When retailers and brands support these farms they can stay in business. No longer are the days where one could not afford sustainable products against factories and farms practicing recklessly for mass production. As consumers we want our food to come from safe places and we don’t want another human treated inhumanly to get us our products. We just don’t want to support that and the brands and retailers are listening. I can find sustainable brands right beside any other brand in my local grocery store.

My son is allowed to choose 2-3 lunches at school and the rest we make at home. Honest® Tea pouches for kids are always in my fridge ready for lunch days, neighbor kids when they are over, snack day for the soccer game and even all summer. They have plenty of flavor options so I can rotate flavors to give him variety. Honest® Tea products are USDA Organic-certified with sustainable ingredients and fair-trade certified cane sugar and tea.

Honest® Tea is the #1 organic tea in the U.S. and their products are:

  • Fair Trade Certified
  • Zero Calories per Bottle
  • USDA Organic
  • NON GMOs
  • Gluten Free
  • Kosher
  • Available in flavored Honest Tea, Honest Sport and Kids pouches

So, let’s celebrate these brands all year long! Start with Honest® Tea by visiting their website for more information.
