Product Review: Amara Sports Drink // 100% Paleo, Raw Fruit sports drink

fruit-2

I have never been a big fan of energy drinks, sports drinks, or enhanced water. These drinks either are not good for you, being high in sugar— many sports drinks contain as much as two thirds the sugar of soda—or they contain artificial flavors, ingredients or food coloring.

Then there is Amara. The creators of the Amara sports drink had exactly this in mind – to make a healthier, unprocessed version of an athletic drink. They also wished to blend the various types of drinks, such as traditional sports drinks, energy drinks, and superfood drinks, and the result is a drink that nourishes athletes and promotes healthy balanced lives.

AMARA – (Ancient Greek) – “Immortal.” Like history’s greatest athletes, who prevail against the odds to achieve awe-inspiring feats, Amara means standing firm and refusing to give up. Amara reflects the idea that everyone should enjoy a healthy, balanced life, and relentlessly pursue what they love.

Amara raw, paleo sports drink blends two super fruits, maqui and coffee berries, with the 5 essential electrolytes to create the ultimate fitness drink that hydrates, energizes and nourishes.

Amara sports drink is also Kosher, vegan, gluten free, soy free and non-GMO.

Amara is designed to give you the energy boost you need from CoffeeBerry®, a full spread of B & C Vitamins and Antioxidants, and 5 of the key electrolytes found in the human body, all at isotonic levels to hydrate you as rapidly as possible. 

Amara_MECH_041113

All of the ingredients used in Amara are 100% natural and Paleo-approved and contain zero artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors, all while maintaining a low-calorie profile.

With just the right amount of low glycemic, organic Agave Nectar and Monk Fruit, Amara tastes delightfully sweet, without overloading you with calories or crashing your energy and diet with processed sugar.

The only potential downside to this drink, which is also an upside for many, is the caffeine content. With 75mgs of caffeine per serving, and two servings per container, each drink has a little more than the content of 1.5 cups of black coffee. This will certainly help with performance, especially in anything cardiovascular, but not everyone wants the caffeine, especially if they workout close to bedtime.

With only 30 Calories per 16oz bottle and 4g of sugar, you can rest assured Amara will help get you through your workout without adding the Calories right back like most of the leading sports drinks. Amara drinks are literally made with fruit, electrolytes and water blended together and bottled raw to avoid the vitamin loss that comes with pasteurization. It’s that simple.

This drink is ideal for paleo dieters, people eating raw or organic, and – honestly – it’s right for anyone interested in a sports drink.

You can purchase Amara Sports Drink online for $29.99 for a 12-pack, with free shipping. That’s about $2.49 per drink, very comparable to other sports and energy drinks on the market.

Bridge Lane Lieb Cellars White Wine Blend ($10 off promo code) & Engraved Stemless Wine Glasses Review + Giveaway

iusb_760x100.14790524_agjo

Today I am going to talk about one of my favorite things: wine!

Yes wine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of New York, but areas like the Finger Lakes and Niagara are doing some fantastic things with wine and as whole, the state is the 4th largest wine producer in the United States! Definitely not the first place you would think to look for a vineyard, but lo and behold, Long Island is producing some excellent wines too. 

logo

Last year, Lieb Cellars in Cutchogue rolled out a line of tasty yet affordable boxed wines under their Bridge Lane line. Each Bridge Lane boxed wine costs $40 and contains the equivalent of four bottles of wine. Boxes retain their freshness up to one month after being opened. 

BoxBridgeLaneWhiteBlend10x61

The 2014 Lieb Cellars Bridge Lane White Blend is a light bodied, dry wine with no residual sugar, does not undergo malolactic fermentation and is aged in 100% stainless steel. All of this makes for a very fresh wine that despite being dry (not sweet) still features a ton of delicious fruit. Highly aromatic on the nose, the wine features abundant aromas of lemon, tangerine and apricot. All that fruit continues when tasting this well structured wine. Tangy citrus and tropical fruit lead into the dry, long, slightly chalky, mouthwatering finish. Excellent and highly recommended!

Composition: 35% Chardonnay, 26% Pinot Blanc, 20% Riesling, 15% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% White Pinot Noir

USE CODE BZBX10 for $10 OFF BRIDGE LANE BOX WINE!

That means, $30 for 4 bottles worth of dry, hand-crafted, expert-approved #farmtobox wine. JUMP ON IT!

Skinny Kosher Creations Gluten Free Weight Loss/Energy Bars

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 6.08.32 PM

Women, in general, are continually wearing many hats a day. Working, parenting, helping family, being a wife or Girlfriend, planning….They try to do it all. Throughout these busy moments on the go we either grab something easy (often junky) or go to the protein bar isle of the store feeling confident that we are choosing a healthier option. The problem is that many of these bars are either rice crispy bars with some flavoring therefore airy and empty or they are chocolate bars remarketed as a protein bar, loaded with unwanted calories, fat, sugar or carbs. 

Skinny Kosher Creations offers something different; a low calories bar, made with healthy ingredients, and addresses allergies and dietary restrictions. Skinny Kosher Creations is based out of Woodstock, New York. Owner Brenda and her team have over 12 years of senior management experience within the weight loss industry, combined with their entrepreneurial skills, energy and focus, you have an awesome foundation! Striving to become game-changes in the weight loss/energy bars industry, they have not only made the bars Kosher and gluten free, but also peanut free, dairy free, and lactose free, all wrapped in a mere 130 calories!

photo 3

The first product they have launched are delicious Energy Bars. The bars are available in three flavors; Choco Chip Coco’Tini, Choco Chip Mint’Tini, and Choco Chip Orange’Tini.  

The bar looks dense and therefore most people, including myself, think it is chocolate. The base of the bars are actually dates, which makes the bars higher in fiber and excellent for digestion.

photo 1

I was impressed with the lightness (aka not dense) of the bars and the subtle flavors. I was weary of the orange flavor, because I do not like anything orange-flavored, but to my surprise there was only a faint orange taste, and I really enjoyed the bar. The same can be said with the mint bar, which Jeremy, who hates mint, could actually tolerate the flavor.

WHY Skinny Kosher Creations BARS?

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 6.11.13 PM

SKC bars…

The bars are not meant to be meal replacements however they are meant to help fight hunger and because of the high fiber content and its date paste base, they are very satisfying and an easy “go to”. With a sensible diet and two bars a day, they are a wonderful addition for weight loss or weight maintenance as well.

You can purchase Skinny Kosher Creations Bars online.

They are cooking up many ideas that will bring about many new flavors and shelf stable Mediterranean inspired all natural vegetarian meals with zero chemicals or additives.

Chantilly Mega Supreme Chewable Enzyme Probiotic Review + Giveaway

61rWqpHrfjL._SL1000_Get the best of both worlds with Chantilly Mega Supreme Enzyme Probiotic! While the enzymes help the body digest food and get rid of damaged cells, the probiotics replenish the good bacteria taking over the bad bacteria, which caused bad odor, rotting, bloating and all range of issues.

Most people are well aware of the benefits of the probiotics but for some reason there is not much talk about digestive enzymes, which could be the the missing link to feeling better.

Digestive enzyme supplements are designed to support digestion by working synergistically with the body’s digestive system. The human body naturally manufactures some digestive enzymes, but others have to be supplemented through the diet. As we age the enzymes in the human body diminish and the body has to work harder to keep up with the demands. One can easily become enzyme deficient. Indigestion, bloating, gas and bad breath are among the signs of enzyme deficiency. Or, for people like me, my body lacks some of the digestive enzymes needed to break down food, and I rely on digestive enzymes at every meal.

I also take probiotics, so having both of these combined into one chewable is great! Less pills is always better. But this ias actually not a pill, it is a chewable tablet.

This multi-enzyme formula with probiotics offers BioCore DPP-IV, known for its ability to digest gluten and fiber. The formula contains proprietary enzyme blend with amylase, acid maltase, bromalain, proteases, alpha-galactosidase, lactase, cellulase, lipase and invertase to help with proper food digestion and assimilation.

61Lqzx8FDDL._SL1000_

Why should You buy Chantilly Mega Supreme Enzyme Probiotic?

61WKAIh2xDL._SL1000_

I have been taking one tablet with each meal and I’ve noticed that the bloating I get after eating, is much lesser. For anyone with IBS, this has really helped me with the bloating issues, and it could be worth a try! If your body has trouble digesting anything, this can help because it has the key ingredients that your body needs to digest many of the foods we eat.

So, where can you get Chantilly Mega Supreme Enzyme Probiotic? Well I have one bottle to giveaway to one lucky fan BUT you can also purchase a 90-tablet bottle on Amazon for $29.99.

Now, for the giveaway! To enter, simply click on the rafflecopter below!

This giveaway will end on May 1,2015 at 11:59pm. Open to U.S. residents only.

Promenade Bar & Grill now offers Gluten Free Burgers // & Join Us April 29th for a Gluten Free Burger Event

photo 2

Sports bars are one of the hardest places to find gluten free options. Has this ever happened to you?  You meet your friends at a sports bar, ready to cheer on your favorite team, and there’s nothing you can eat. Well, you can usually find a bed of iceberg lettuce and a glass of water, but what’s the fun in that? You’re hungry too and you wish you could eat what everyone else was eating…

photo 3

Well thanks to Promenade Bar and Grill, now you can! Promenade is proud to introduce Gluten Free Burgers to their menu! All three burgers – beef, turkey, and veggie – are gluten free and can be served on an Udi’s gluten free bun. Not only are the burgers gluten free, but the fries that are served with it are also safe.

photo 1

With two dedicated gluten free fries, which are only used to make French fries, sweet potato fries and corn chips, you can enjoy your meal worry-free.

photo 2

Let’s talk about the Veggie Burger, which is actually a Vegan Burger. Made from a mix of fresh, all natural kale, sweet potato, spinach, water chestnut, roasted corn, broccoli, brown rice and garlic, this veggie burger is unlike any veggies burger I’ve ever had.

photo 3

The big chunks of vegetables tasted garden-fresh. With very little brown rice, the burger fell apart a little bit, but I did not care. It was too good to care. The only solution would be to add more fillers – rice, quinoa, GF breadcrumbs, etc. – and this would take away from the flavor of the burger. I prefer Promenade’s burger that’s a little messy, but full of flavor and chunks of healthy, fresh vegetables.

photo 4

The “All American Burger” is made with four cuts of beef; brisket, short rib, prime chunk and hanger steak. Yes, you read that right.

All of the burgers are prepared in a manner to avoid cross contaminate with any gluten products.

All burgers are served with your choice of French fries or sweet potato fries. Obviously, I ordered the sweet potato fries. It’s not everyday you find 100% gluten free safe sweet potato fries. The fries had a nice cinnamon coating and were also delicious.

Tito’s gluten free vodka is on hand for all vodka drinks (check out the bottomless bloody Mary weekend brunch!), Redbridge Beer, and Stella Cidre.

Promenade is a great spot to catch your favorite game on one of their many 60” tv screens. They also have individual listening boxes for your table if the game you want to watch isn’t on tv. Better yet, the restaurant is equipped with iphone charging “stations” all throughout the restaurant.

photo 2

On Wednesday, April 29, 2015 join us for a Gluten Free Burger Meal! This is a gluten free meet up event with a chance to find a great place to meet other gluten free New Yorkers while enjoying a delicious gluten free meal along with gluten free cider and a great dessert. The cost is $20 per person, and you will get one choice of veggie, turkey or beef burger with your choice of sweet potato or regular french fries as well as your choice of corona beer or Stella cidre.  A delish gluten free brownie dessert is also included.   Tip not included. Tickets.

So make a night of it come down and mingle with other gluten free New Yorkers and enjoy some great food!

Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager Review

61Mof0cEYkL._SL1500_
 
Yes, this is a strange looking product, isn’t it? Although it looks awfully peculiar, it’s actually a neck massager!
 
I’m one who is always up for- or needs- a good neck massage or any type of massage. It’s comforting and helps relax me, not to mention helps with the constant knot I always seem to have in my lower neck and shoulder area. I figured I give it a try; I will do almost anything to help with the pain in my shoulder. 

Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager is perfect if you build up a lot of tension in your neck. Also perfect if you love firm massages that you can’t normally get at home. For those of you not familiar with is, Shiatsu is a type of deep tissue massage, they’re relaxing, tension-freeing and soothing. And now you can get one at home! 

Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager uses the Eastern practice of pressure massaging to help people relax and cope with issues such as stress, muscle pain, nausea, anxiety, and depression. Neck pain often results from poor posture, bad sleeping positions, and even traumatic injuries. By using the Syono Neck Massager everyday you will break down the injured collagen fibers inside your neck and allow healthy and flexible collagen fibers to take their place.  Breaking up some of that tension felt great; You have no idea!

The Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager is U-shaped, made of plastic, that goes around your neck and has two roller balls that land on your neck. The two pieces of plastic are very tight and can hurt if you just let them clamp to your neck, but can relieve the tightness by spreading the handles.  It’s not hollow, which made me feel comfortable and confident that it wouldn’t break during use no matter how hard I pulled or squeezed. The handles are thick, which makes it easy to hold on to. The rollers are soft and easy on the skin. 

When I first received the Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager, I wasn’t really sure how well it would work. There was no directions that really came with the product or package, and I was a bit confused. It took me several tries to figure out how to get it to work where it actually massages your neck and doesn’t just try to pinch or cause pain.  
71tDE7KPDrL._SL1500_
 
How to use The Syono Shiatsu Neck Massager:
  1. The rollers should be angled down in the middle and the handles should be pointed up to help provide the rolling massage when one is doing the lower neck and middle neck. 
  2. The rollers should be pointed up in the middle and the handles should be facing down to help with the rolling massage when doing the upper neck or near the head.
I am fairly petite so I am able to get the pressure that it is not too tight yet enough to give me pressure appropriate for a massage. This neck massage applies a lot of pressure, which to me feels great, as long as I don’t squeeze too hard! You control the pressure yourself with how tightly you squeeze, so if you prefer a lighter pressure you can easily adjust it. 
 
The little rubber knobs can rotate to fit different areas of the neck. You can roll this anywhere from the base of your skull down to the shoulders. It doesn’t take much effort to use and if you have any neck muscle issues, it’s worth to have around for instant relief. It feels like it’s providing a deep massage right at home!
 
Overall this is a pretty simple product but quite effective at that, and for less than $20, you can’t beat that. It allows you to really get those tight muscles to loosen up and can ease any tension that you are having. I’m bringing mine into my office tomorrow, I seem to have more pain and tension at work from sitting at a desk all day.

Product Review: Coco Joy Coconut Water

3ac362e31c3d0ea37176934bc3be0106243e90f2

Coco Joy Coconut Water gives you the sweet flavor of all natural, pure coconut water from 100% green coconuts with no added sugar, preservatives or concentrates.

Extracting the water from a young coconut is of key importance to the benefits and taste that sets Coco Joy apart from its competitors. Compared to leading coconut water brands, Coco Joy has fewer calories, less sodium, no added sugar and no preservatives, offering a guilt-free, refreshing, healthy hydration option for people of all ages. 

Coco Joy offers a new approach to harvesting the health benefits of coconut water, utilizing a method of cultivating coconuts from the best locations, at the perfect age and time, to create a refreshing, delicious taste. Unlike other coconut water beverages that mix the fatty, milky juice of aged brown coconuts with green coconut water, Coco Joy is is never made from concentrate and is made purely from fresh, young green coconuts picked from Southeast Asia’s tropical forests. 

2afcc5eff3500bddd7ab8ecf96979c087340f5a2

Coco Joy Coconut Water is gluten free, lactose free and dairy free, making it a safe and healthy choice for widely varying diets and nutritional needs.

Coco Joy is unlike any other coconut water I’ve ever tried. It had a bold, sweet, pure coconut taste. It was much sweeter than I was expecting, and I had to double check that coconut water really was the only ingredient, and it is! Surprisingly it only has 6 grams of sugar per serving. 

81JTiaTu56L._SL1500_

Over the last decade, coconut water has seen a rapid growth in the ready-to-drink beverage category, in part due to its popularity with athletes, celebrities and health-conscious consumers. While Coco Joy does not make any direct wellness claims, coconut water is known for its health and anti-aging benefits. Coconut water is rich in calcium to support strong bones, electrolytes to offer superior hydration, potassium to combat muscle fatigue and cramps, and cytokinins which have anti-aging properties.

Coco Joy is also the perfect way to refresh after a tough workout. It’s full of naturally hydrating electrolytes, antioxidants, calcium and magnesium. It has fewer calories, less sodium, and more potassium than sports drinks, and will actually rehydrate you and your hard working muscles. You can also use Coco Joy Coconut water in healthy recipes, including my favorite, smoothies.

This amazing coconut water is available in 8 oz. cans, 42 oz. bottles and coconut water cases. A 12-pack of Coco Joy 8 oz. cans cost $19.15, making it only $1.60 per can, very reasonable compared to other coconut waters in the market. You can purchase Coco Joy Coconut Water online via Amazon on their online store

No chalkiness, no bitterness, no nutty aftertaste

91b9043df8230f9d8a99f02c5f73d8227d667541

Rosacea Soothing Cream works to calm and lessen the effects of rosacea.  Reddened skin, inflammation and irritated skin are all hallmarks of rosacea. With Rosacea Soothing Cream, these symptoms will be effectively reduced using natural elements.

The developers of Rosacea Soothing Cream have put together a powerful formulation containing skin-soothing aloe vera, inflammation-busting Vitamin E and natural peptides rich in antioxidants. The reddened skin will be greatly lessened with the twice-daily use of Rosacea Soothing Cream.  Irritated skin will be calmed and less inflamed, while the release of harmful proteases will be reduced.  This calming cream will aid in preventing damage to the skin’s very structure, as it soothes skin and makes for younger, revitalized complexion.

Ageless Derma Rosacea Relief Cream contains Vitamins E, a natural moisturizing agent, free-radical fighter, anti-inflammatory and anti-wrinkling aid. A form of Vitamin C lessens the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays that can aggravate rosacea and form lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also fights free radical damage.

But the main star in Rosacea Soothing Cream is the aloe barbadensis leaf extract. This botanical extract comes from a succulent plant that has anti-inflammatory powers to fight the effects of rosacea. It will also stimulate new cell growth and correct damaged skin tissue.
