Lifevine Wine has Award-Winning Purity and Zero Sugar

Wine is a staple in most homes. About 25% of adults drink wine at least once a week. Did you know that your bottle of wine may contain up to 70 approved additives and your bottle likely does not provide serving facts and ingredients on the label? It doesn’t have to. Lifevine Wine is introducing transparency to wine and giving you these facts so you know exactly what you are consuming.

Choosing to add zero sugar and other unnecessary additives does not have to change taste or alcohol content. This wine tastes fantastic and is free of harmful toxins and pesticides. Several of their wines have even received the Clean Label Project Purity Award.

There are 6 wines to choose from and the Summer Bundle is a great deal of 4 wines and it ships free! I have served this wine at a dinner recently and it went over so well. To be able and share that there are no sugars or harmful additives made it a hit! Order your bottles of Lifevine Wine and enjoy wine while knowing exactly what you are consuming!

Happy Grub Squeezable Instant Pancake Mix is a Meal Timesaver

My husband is out of town and the past week has been so hectic with back to school week and I was down with a virus and vertigo. I managed to push through it and when it came to dinner, I was exhausted at the end of my days. My son always loves breakfast for dinner, so once I remembered that I had a Happy Grub in the pantry, dinner was so easy. Happy Grub has squeezable instant pancake mixes that are a huge timesaver for meals.

Happy Grub Squeezable Instant Pancake Mix is a Meal Timesaver

Not only do you save time by just adding water, shake and squeeze, the mess is much less! I like making my own pancake mix or using natural brands and I have a mess when mixing the wet ingredients and dry ingredients and dishes/spoons that need cleaning and that is before the pancakes hit the plate! Happy Grub is made of natural and organic ingredients. Each flavor starts with an organic buttermilk base, organic unbleached flour and organic whole egg-that simple! If you have a teen like I do…add some flavor swirls, such as melted sugar-free chocolate…

Choose from 4 Happy Grub pancake (and waffle) flavors – Buttermilk, Banana, Whole Wheat and Apple Cinnamon. Yes, you can make waffles too! Each 8.5oz bottle makes 20 (3 in.) pancakes. They are sold on their site in 2-packs that you can mix or match in flavors.

Head into Fall with Red Vines and Sour Punch Candies

Head into Fall with Red Vines and Sour Punch Candies

In fall, candy is a hot topic. As we near Halloween, stay indoors for cooler weather that make the best movie nights and after school treats, let’s look at what Red Vines and Sour Punch is offering. For me, candy means individually wrapped pieces for my candy bowl at work. I work in the office at our local high school and most kids know to come to my window for candy in passing. Sour Punch candies are always a hit.

Have you seen the Ice Cream Truck twists? These are delicious flavors of cherry sherbet, orange cream bar, americana pop and strawberry snow cone. The tropical flavors are just as popular.

I am also excited for the organic fruit chews, Chewie-Fruities. My go-to for my personal stash are Red Vines made simple mixed berry twists. I always have a tray in the snack bin. This was your fill candy reminder to keep these candies in mind for your treat needs.

American Licorice Company: Sour Punch® brand purpose is, “Embrace Your Punch,” spreads a message of appreciating the differences in others with the goal of encouraging mutual respect and spreading kindness.

FAST BAR – INTERMITTENT FASTING BARS you can eat while in a fast

FAST BAR - INTERMITTENT FASTING BARS you can eat while in a fast

To find a food that you can eat while intermittent fasting takes science. It becomes a balance of the right types and amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients to stay in a fast. With Fast Bar, you can fast on food! This is a game changer for those that fast as I do most mornings. It doesn’t take long to train your body to eat right in your window so you don’t have many cravings as you stay in your fasting state. But, there are those days you just want to grab food too soon. Here is why these bars work…

As far as the ingredients go, these FAST BAR – INTERMITTENT FASTING BARS are plant-based, Keto-friendly, and gluten-free. They are made with macadamias, pecans, almonds, and honey that has a similar fasting impact as a glass of water (see the study). These bars simply do not activate the food-sensing system so your body has no idea it is consuming food.

I grab a bar to keep in my work bag all the time. Some mornings I do fine, but it is there on the mornings I crave food. There are 3 flavors – coconut macadamia, chocolate chip and nuts & honey. I love the nuts & honey in the morning. Order your Fast Bar variety today. You will want one on hand for those days you want to fall.
