Daily Goodie Box - May 2022

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   A short and sweet May Goodie Box to share with you guys. This one was filled with full size products and samples, all great for getting your body back on track and healthy.

Tipson - Liver Cleanse Tea. This tea is made with dandelion so it has a slight bitterness to it... definitely better when drank warm. It's not awful, and it's easy to have a cup a day for a clean liver.
Ultima Replenisher - Electrolyte Powder. These little drink mixes are good to have on the go. They're great to give your body some extra hydration and electrolytes. I like that they are plant based and come in a variety of flavors. 
Vitamin Friends - Kids Vegan Iron Gummies. These vitamin gummies are so easy to take, just one a day to give you some extra iron and other vitamins. The first initial taste of the gummy is really good, but then it leaves an awful after taste. Must be due to the iron in it.
Cleanse Freshen Go - Dental Appliance Cleansing Towelettes. These towelettes are nice to have on hand, for using to wipe my night guard, when I don't have a drink available right away. The wipe seems to cleanse the guard and smells nice n' minty, although it doesn't leave much of a minty taste to it. I wish it did though!
SmartPatches - Classic Hangover Prevention. I have yet to use these patches, as I don't drink alcohol much, and if I did, I more than likely wouldn't be driving enough to get a hangover :) but it's a nice concept stuff I hope they work really great for those that need them!
What product do you think you would most like to try? 
It's been fun as usual. Looking forward to the next Goodie Box!

Gnarly Sports Nutrition Greens, Collagen and Protein

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   I recently tried a couple products from the Gnarly Sports Nutrition line: Performance Greens, Collagen Pro, and Vegan Plant Protein. Each of these products help your body in different areas and give you the supplements to build up your nutrition.

The first product I tried was the Performance Greens in the flavor of Blueberry Acai. This drink is supposed to support blood flow, endurance, and recovery. I was really hoping to like these greens, as they're an easy and healthy way to get in those needed vitamins... But that flavor was just too bad for me to handle. The powder did dissolve well in water, and it made a nice green color, but that taste... It was basically all green and no blueberry...I just can't get past that lol. 
The next product I tried was the unflavored Collagen Pro, made with pasture raised peptides, vitamin C and Zinc. I've tried several different Collagen in the past, and unfortunately this one was probably the worst. I know it says it's unflavored, but it definitely has a taste. A very bad taste, that I couldn't stand to drink... But the scent was even worse. I won't go into describing that scent and taste, but just know, it's a hard one to stomach. It did also mix well in water, but unfortunately that's all the good it has going for it. 
   And the last item I tried, the Vegan Plant Protein, in the flavor of chocolate. It was my favorite of the three! This drink is made to build, nourish, and support muscles. It mixed well in water, and it had a fantastic chocolate flavor. For it being a meal replacement, it didn't seem to keep me full for very long, but I did enjoy drinking it for breakfast. It also seemed to give me a little boost in energy, which I'm not sure if that was supposed to happen, but I definitely enjoyed this protein shake! 
   It's been fun trying a few of the Gnarly Sports Nutrition products. I would love to try their other items and see if there anything else I might like!

Jam Jar Oat Bars + Recipe

   If you have some leftover jelly or jam in the jar, and are tired of making sandwiches with it, try making a tasty dessert! These Jam Jar Oat Bars are easy to make, and taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but without the peanut butter. To make these bars, you first build up the crumb bottom.
Mix together:

1 Stick of Softened Butter
1 Cup of Flour 
1 Cup of Oatmeal
A Dash of Salt
3/4 Cup of Brown Sugar

Add about 3/4 of this crumb mixture to the bottom of a greased 9 inch baking pan, shaping it together to form the crust. Once layered, spread across your jam or jelly, and sprinkle across the remaining crumb mix you made above. Bake in the oven at 350° for about 30 minutes. Let cool and enjoy as is, or top with ice cream for the ultimate treat!

Daily Goodie Box - March 2022

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

   My recent Goodie Box for the month of March came with lots of fun things to try. This one was filled with a handful of beverages and health products.

Rejuva Minerals - Loose Foundation. The powder goes on nicely and blends well into my skin. I thought it was going to be dry and not look good, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well it blended.
North Coast - Strawberry Apple Sauce + Probiotics. This applesauce is sweet and you can really taste the strawberry in it. I think it makes a really great on the go snack, but I can see it being better if it has less sugar.
Banana Wave - Chocolate Banana Milk. I thought this drink would've been amazing, but I was surprised by the artificial tasting banana and tartness that came with it. I think it would be better suited for smoothies, than a drink for me, but I can see young children liking it.
ShiKai - CBD Cream with Borage Oil. The first thing I noticed about this lotion is the scent... It's awful. The smell makes me think of spinach. If I can get past the scent, the lotion is pretty nice. It moisturizes good and feels soft to my skin.
Rowdy Bar - Snickerdoodle Protein Powder. I really hoped I could like this protein powder, but for the amount of powder they recommend you add to water, makes it taste so plain. I wish the sample was a bit bigger to try it with more powder a second time, because the first was just an overwhelming use of cinnamon and water.
Tipson - Organic Turmeric Ginger & Cinnamon Tea. This tea has a pretty bland taste to it, but also comforting at the right temperature. I'm glad the flavors aren't overwhelming, though I wish the cinnamon was a bit stronger. I like that it's caffeine free and can easily be drank.

Auromere - Cinnamon Ayurvedic Toothpaste. This toothpaste is nicely cinnamon flavored and not too spicy. It gets the teeth clean but I wish it was more minty in my mouth. I'm also not fond of the color when you spit, compared to typical white toothpaste, because it makes me feel dirty, but if you need a quick brush, it does the job.

ICE CHIPS® - Berry Mix Xylitol Candy. I've tried ice chips before and really liked their minty flavor, but these ones were not as good. Their berry was just too sweet and tart, not very enjoyable unfortunately. I would love to see other flavors to try as well. 

It's been another fun box of samples to try. Some to like, some to not. This is such a great way to find new purchases. I can't wait for the next box, to see what kind of goodies I get!!

Strawberry Cheesecake Snowboard Sandwiches

   One of the best I've cream sandwiches I've tried yet, the Strawberry Cheesecake Snowboard Sandwiches have an amazing flavor that leaves you wanting more. 
The outside cookie is vanilla instead of chocolate, and the cheesecake flavored ice cream inside has a strawberry jelly swirl along it, giving a much different taste than an ordinary ice cream sandwich. They are so good! And the best part is I got these boxes on a super sale for just 49¢ a box! So good they're addicting!

De-Stress Snooze with Ashwaganda by Stressballs

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.
   I recently had the opportunity to try out the De-Stress Snooze with Ashwaganda by Stressballs, to help aid in better sleep and less stress. These gummies are made with whole-plant ashwagandha, lavender, chamomile, and melatonin, while also being drug-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, gelatin-free and non-habit forming.

   I was pleased with how quickly the Stressballs made me tired and ready for sleep! The gummies were easy to take, and in less then 30 minutes, I was feeling extremely tired, and fell asleep near instantly. But the problem was, I couldn't stay asleep. After sleeping for about 6 hours, I would wake up, wide awake, but feeling so tired and cranky that I couldn't sleep longer. I didn't notice any changes in my stress levels, only the instant tiredness upon taking. If these could have kept me asleep for a straight 8-9 hours, I would have loved them. I know the results may vary per person, so I do want to point out that they were extremely easy to take, the gummy isn't too chewy, and they have a decent taste. Definitely worth the try.
