Pistachio + Cranberry Chewy Bites, Yes, Please!


Well if you haven't figured it out already we just went through Hurricane Irma, and well when you go through such a thing, you need to stock up on water and lots of non-perishables. Of course you get a few snacks which will last a little while also which I always look for peanut stuff because it has protein. 


One of the items I was able to enjoy during the storm was the Pistachio + Cranberry Chewy Bites by Setton Farms. I already love Setton Farms pistachios but adding in cranberry yum! My family and I really enjoy trail mixes and this was a great treat for us. The Pistachio + Cranberry Chewy Bites are just that, individually wrapped snack bars and each is the perfect size that your good on one or two for a few hours. It is the perfect combo of sweet and tanging? not sure how to describe a pistachio, but it is a great combo. So good you could even pass them out for Halloween, and give a healthy yummy treat. 


The Setton Farms Pistachio + Cranberry Chewy Bites are great in so many ways, they taste great, they can be carried in kids lunches, purses, pockets, backpacks anything! They are the perfect on the go, or staying at home snack. A healthier option to others. You can see all of Setton Farms products by visiting http://www.settonfarms.com/

Rise-N-Shine with Wake Up On Time!


My husband has to get up at 4am to be to work at 5:30am every morning, he sets his alarm on his phone and still sometimes misses the alarm because he is so out of it. He also has tried a old school alarm which worked until dogs/kids knocked it off one to many times. He also has done 4 alarms in a row, one at 3am, 3:30am, 4am and finally 4:30am and still that will not always work. 



I was contacted by Rise-N-Shine to try Wake Up On Time, I couldn't pass this up because it sounded like something that would work for my husband. How it works is you take Wake Up On Time before you go to bed, strange right. Well it Wake Up On Time is made so it is time released, when it is time to wake up, vitamins like B-6 and B-12 are released to help you get more energy. 

My husband is a stubborn person, who wants all kinds of facts before trying anything new, but I forced him to try it and both him and I are in much better moods now that he is on it. The Wake Up On Time has worked wonders and has improved his mood because he is getting more real sleep and waking up in a better mood, which is why it benefits me because I do not have to walk on eggshells around everything when he is up.  If you have a hard time waking up ready for the day I would truly recommend you trying this great product from Rise-N-Shine. 

Rise-N-Shine's patented Wake Up On Time is the first product of its kind, taken BEFORE bed, but doesn't start working until it's time to wake up! Wake Up On Time will never prevent you from falling asleep - thanks to the magic of time release.

BasicBites a great way to get through the day and help your teeth


Being a mother of 5 I am always on the go, so I often let things slide, sadly one of those things is oral health. I normally find myself snacking at fast food places, or eating a candy bar to keep myself full while on the go. The BasicBites area a great way to give me a little boost along with being a major kick in oral care. 

BasicBites take advantage of your mouth’s natural protective processes to neutralize harmful sugar acids and enrich and fortify tooth enamel. This revolutionary technology was developed by renowned research scientists at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine.

Eating two BasicBites a day is good for: 
 Adults, teens and children*
 Those with dry mouth 
 Anyone interested in extra oral care support



BasicBites are delicious, sugar free, chocolate soft chews that can help maintain healthy teeth and support the acid-base (pH) level on tooth surfaces that are already in the normal range. BasicBites contain the patented AlkaGen Technology. This breakthrough technology was developed at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. BasicBites coat the teeth with a unique blend of vital and natural nutrients. These nutrients were discovered to be present in healthy saliva and mimic saliva's supportive, natural benefits.

G.H. Cretors Popped Corn Making a Great School Snack

My kids started school August 10th and it seriously came out of nowhere, I was not ready at all. The kids kept complaining because I didn't have any snacks for them and at the school they make things a little more complicated because it has to be a healthy snack. 


With the whole healthy snack thing I started to think out of the box, which one item I thought of is popcorn. G.H. Cretors Popped Corn rises above the competition in its commitment to quality ingredients and artisanal craftsmanship, which is why its popped corn is nothing short of incredible. Obsessively delicious flavors include: - The Mix - Just the Cheese Corn - Organic White Cheddar - Organic Salted Butter Kettle Corn - Organic Salted Butter - Organic Dill Pickle.


Popcorn on its own is already a healthy option because it is just air. But wouldn't adding things to it make it less healthy? No because G.H. Cretors Popped Corn uses only nature ingredients making for the perfect tasty treat. My personal favorite is what G.H. Cretors Popped Corn calls The Mix, which is a fun bag of butter caramel corn and real cheddar cheese corn. The perfect mix of salty and sweet. 

You can never go wrong with the basic of Organic Salted Butter or Organic Salted Butter Kettle Corn, everyone enjoys these flavors. My oldest son really loves the White Cheddar, he can finish off a bag in minutes. The Organic Dill Pickle was one I will not lie I was a little scared to try, although I do love pickles the idea of pickle popcorn didn't seem so ideal. But because I had it in hand, and I am always open to trying new things. WOW I am so glad I did, it was super good perfect amount of flavor to popcorn. Possibly my 2nd favorite of the bunch.
