Do You Take a Shower or Bath with Natural Soaps, Fizzies or Scrubs?

Please Rate Article: 
Taking a shower, or bath, is something people do on a daily basis. So, it is important to use a shower or bath product that is good for your skin. Did you know that what you use on the outside of your body, affects the inside of your body as well? This is why it is important you read all labels and learn what the ingredients are of the products you decide to scrub on all over your body.

Well, I just recently found this company online named The Soap Shack Baby. This company is new and amazing! The owner, Tiffany and James Meek, started their company in 2013 in the town on Lakeport, California. Tiffany grew up watching her Mom make soaps and other natural products and believes, like her Mom, that there are healing properties in nature. James, who deals with allergies, thought making homemade soaps would help deal with the allergies and now, he makes the soaps and other natural products with his wife, Tiffany.



 So, when I found The Soap Shack Baby, of course, I was looking for all natural and healthy soaps. I wanted some solid soaps and I have begun using thing again instead of that liquid soap found in 'other' soap stores found in malls and such.  I was so excited to find The Soap Shack Baby and the first soaps I used were Pick Me Up Baby!, Goat Milk? Yeah Baby and Lavender My Bath Baby. Of course, there are other cool soaps, scented or unscented, for your shower and bath pleasure.

The soaps I plan to purchase next are Coconut, Coconut Sugar Scrub and the Chardonnay Wine soap. Oh, it is so exciting for find body products that really good to use on your body and lips and made with love. I mean, Tiffany and James really care about their customers, just as they care what they are using on themselves and for their family and friends. When it comes to creating new soaps, scrubs and other natural body products, for Tiffany and James, it is all about their community and their new online customers.

Never, ever go another day without using natural and good for your whole body soaps, scrubs and lip balms that are not made by The Soap Shack Baby.  Oh! And one more thing, when you open your account with The Soap Shack Baby, everything you place an order, you receive points that will add up and you can use those points towards your next purchase. How cool is that!


And finally, when you buy any of The Soap Shack Baby solid soaps, when you remove the paper that surrounds the soap, you can plant the paper! Yeah, it is made with seeds that will sprout! Now, I bet you do not know of a company that literally, gives back to nature in this fashion, right?

Pretzel Crisps© are thin and come is a variety of flavors

Please Rate Article: 
If you are a pretzel lover like I am, you will have to try the more than one flavors from Pretzel Crisps. Now, I have not tried every single flavor, yet, but I have to say my favorites so far are the hot and or spicy flavors. I just love hot and spicy snacks. So, the Pretzel Crisps I have eaten and keep purchasing are the:

 Deli Family



flavors which can be eaten alone, or with a tasty piece of cheese or veggies on top. Each package of Pretzel Crisps comes with a suggestion on how they can be eaten as well. Other flavors I have tried and like as well are the original flavor, garlic parmesan, honey mustard & onion and sea salt & cracked pepper. Each flavor tastes exactly as you would imagine they would taste and are excellent to eat on the go, in the car, to put out for snacks when having a home gathering, sharing with co workers and snacking throughout the day.

Now, there are even newer flavors, I have yet to try and they are the modern classics and minis. Oh, and if you really like seasonal snacks, Pretzel Crisps now has seasonal indulgents like dark chocolate & peppermint and white chocolate & peppermint flavors. As I was walking through my grocery store a couple weeks ago, I came upon a bag of the dark chocolate & peppermint bag of Pretzel Crisps and had to buy them. These two flavors are just delicious together, they were also on sale.

How do you prefer your Premier Protein?

Please Rate Article: 
Goodness, I am not sure what flavors I like most, the Premier Protein Chocolate Shake, Vanilla Shake or Strawberries and Cream. Well, I have tried them all and I actually like them all, but chocolate is my favorite flavor, if you know me by now. I will have to say the Premier Protein Chocolate Shake is delicious. Just like the Vanilla and Strawberries & Cream shakes, the Chocolate shake is made with 30, or 18, grams of protein, including essential amino acids, 24 vitamins and minerals, provides an excellent source of calcium, only 160 calories and low in fat and only one gram of sugar.

 

Now, sometimes you, like myself, might not want to drink a Premier Protein Shake and this is why there is also the Premier Protein Bars to eat as well. The Premier Protein Bars come in a variety of flavors such as:
 
For all my family and friends who are gluten free, all the CRISP bars are the ones for you. That is right, even if you are gluten free, you can now eat these Premier Protein Bars all you want. Now, whenever you are hungry, or want something good to drink, there is no need to drink a soda, oh no, now you can drink these delicious shakes and eat one, or more, of these bars several times a week. There is no need to go without a meal if these shakes and bars, are around your home. They are great for work and school as well.

When in cold weather, a bowl of warm soup is required

Please Rate Article: 
With the weather being so cold, rainy and snowy lately, this is the best time to eat something warm. It is especially a good time to eat something quick and easy to make with food products you already have in your pantry.

This is when making a Baked Potato Soup for one, or more, sounds delicious. In fact, using a Baked Potato Soup Mix is an easy meal to make in no time at all. I have made this soup more than once now and this is a soup  mix that needs to always be in your pantry.

Now, the packet inside the box suggests you use a creamy broccoli mix, if you so desire, with chedder cheese, but, I used fresh broccoli and chedder cheese in my soups. This Baked Potato Soup can be made with or without this added vegetable. But let me tell you, this soup is delicious and you will want to share a pack with your family and friends. In fact, invite your family and friends over for lunch or dinner.

This soup is not the only one you can try at Homemade Gourmet either. They also make, and sell, a Taco Soup Mix, Hearty Beef & Vegetable, Tomato & Basil, Chicken Enchilada and other mixes as well. These are not the only products Homemade Gourmet sell either.

Other yummy products from Homemade Gourmet provide for their customers, myself included, are:
For all my gourmet family and friends out there, I suggest you bookmark and begin buying delicious products from Homemade Gourmet.

Cheese, the best way to buy and use it, is if comes from the Organic Creamery®

Please Rate Article: 
Honestly, I can not imagine living without cheese. Cheese comes in so many different forms. Now, the best way to use cheese, in my opinion, is when it is organic. The last thing one wants is to be using cheese full of preservatives and other ingredient that are not recognizable. When looking for any type of cheese, American, Baby Swiss, Blue, Feta, Goat Cheese, Pepper Jack and even String, it is always best to buy organic. When buying cheese from the Organic Creamery® not only are you supporting this awesome company in their efforts to keep you and your family healthy, you are choosing to stay healthy, without adding unnecessary chemicals to your body.

 
The Organic Creamery®, on every page of their cheeses, on their website, show that their milk does, indeed, come from cows and the cheeses are made in Wisconsin. Ever since I have begun buying the Organic Creamery® cheeses, specifically the Feta, Blue and Goat Cheese, I have been adding it to my salads and I love it. Oh goodness, there is no way I can eat a salad now, without adding crumbled Feta and Blue cheese to every salad. Adding these cheeses makes eating my salads that much more desirable to eat...and I do not eat salads everyday.

Right now, I am eating some String Cheese and I love it. It is the perfect snack at home, in the car, or anywhere you may be because it fits in your purse or backpack. My twins love eating String cheese and they will eat some when they come home from school every now and then.

So, remember, it is always a good idea to have some
Organic Creamery® cheese on hand, that is, in your refrigerator, all the time, as cheese is good for making any type of meal.
