I have partnered with Lovely Candy Company for this feature

The Lovely Candy Company just launched a first-to-market Organic Candy

Candy! The common belief is that it is loaded with artificial ingredients, loads of sugars and unhealthy sweeteners that rot your body and teeth. However, they also told us once in a common belief that sugar MAKES our kids hyper and that was proven false. So what is the candy debate results?

Let’s just say that MOST candy is harmful. It can be fun in small doses, but too much leaves your body trying to digest and store a multitude of bad ingredients. So here is how you can eat your candy and feel a little less guilt about it too…..

Eat the candy in moderation and make sure it is made with ingredients such as the ones found in the Lovely Candy Company products of chocolate, gummy and hard candy sweets.

Lovely Candy products are free of high fructose corn syrup, gluten, trans fats, GMO’s and artificial colors and ingredients. The candies are also kosher. This makes a great snack choice to soothe that sweet tooth for you or the kids.

Here are some of the ingredients used to make these candies:

  • real butter
  • pure vanilla
  • hormone-free dairy
  • natural flavors
  • raw honey
  • natural extracts
  • pure 99% dark chocolate liqueur (in the truffles)
  • rich dark chocolate
  • coconut
  • real fruit bits

gummies

You can find a variety of these organic candies at retailers such as Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Whole Foods and even Hallmark and Burlington Coat Factory stores just to name a few. A list of all retailers is found here.

Helping Kids and Parents Get More Veggies Into Their Diet with Garden Lites

I have partnered with Garden Lites (unsponsored) for this feature

With vegetables as the primary ingredient in all of their items, Garden Lites is helping kids and parents get more veggies into their diet in delicious ways. These frozen snacks are made with only clean/simple ingredients, Gluten Free, non-GMO certified, nut free and kosher.

 

 

My favorite are the Chocolate Muffins. When I am trying to eat clean and have a sweet tooth, I grab one from the freezer and pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and the chocolate chips melt just a tad for a delicious, gooey treat. You don’t have to microwave them, they thaw fast such as throwing one from the freezer into a lunchbox or picnic basket. They will be ready to eat real soon and most assuredly by lunch.

The Chocolate Muffin’s first two ingredients are zucchini and carrots and are 33% veggies. They also come in Blueberry Oat, Banana Chocolate Chip and Carrot Berry.

Garden Lites® Superfood Veggie Cakes, launched only 2 years ago, are already a best-selling item. They are are packed with nutrient-rich superfood veggies like kale and cauliflower.

I just wanted to put these little snacks on your radar this summer! You can find them in retailers in the frozen section. For more information on Garden Lites products, visit www.GardenLites.com and be sure to follow on Facebook and Twitter!
