Confession time – I love bread. While I love all kinds of bread, banana bread has always been the top of the list as my favorite. The day I learned I could make my own banana bread was a revelation, and no doubt changed my life. One of my favorite times to have a slice of banana bread is with a cup of tea, so when I learned that there was a biscotti version from Marlo’s Bakeshop of my beloved bread, I had to try it.
Each time I go grocery shopping I see this colorful display that instantly takes me back to the days of going to the circus and having a treat. Popcornopolis has done a great job of making their packaging unique and bright and they have taken that creativity and made some new popcorn flavors that are sure to be new favorites!
Our 8 Favorite Products from Pure Growth Organic and a Giveaway
Before I began blogging, I did not give much thought to the idea of organic products and what was in my food. Since that time I have learned and have taken that education into each item I eat. When I recently received a box from the organizers of the Natural Products Expo I was pleased to see popcorn from Pure Growth Organic. As I began learning more about this company, I learned that organic items only make up for 5% of US food sales, and snacks are only 4-5% of that number.Continue reading →

GlutenTox Home Gluten Detection Kit Review + Giveaway
I am going to let you in on a secret – when I began this blog I had never heard the words gluten free and Celiac Disease. As time passed I began reviewing more and more gluten-free items, as well as attending the Natural Products Expo for the past 3 years. I have not only learned about Celiac Disease, but also what items in food is dangerous and why it is so dangerous.
Since learning about this silent threat, I feel passionately about making sure that people are aware there are tasty gluten free options available. While not my original path, I am happy that the road led me here.
There are times that people with gluten sensitivities get homemade gifts from friends or family and it is unknown if the item is gluten free. Thankfully there is a home test that in about 10 minutes can tell you if there is gluten – the GlutenTox Home Test Kit.
