Product Review: Brew n Fill; Keurig Reusable Refillable Coffee Filter Pod

IMG_1144

I finally broke down and got reusable coffee filter pods for my Keurig. I’ve been meaning to buy one for a while now but never got around to it…I have ground coffee, unopened, I haven’t been able to use…until now that is.

I was recently sent three Keurig reusable and refillable coffee filter pods from Brew n Fill. Now I can enjoy my favorite cup of coffee – or tea – in the new range of Keurig smart reusable and refillable coffee filter k-cups, which is a set of 3 pods with stainless steel micro mesh screen. The best part about these pods is I don’t need to bother about throwing away the used cups and buying new ones. Hence, saving lots of hard earned money as well as the environment. The reusable Keurig k-cups allow me to reduce my carbon footprint, lower my costs (we all know how expensive k-cups can be!), and increase my personal choices of coffee. These cups can be easily cleaned and reused n number of times! So eco-friendly isn’t it? 
Apart from being environment loving, these k-cups come in the finest quality design. The reusable coffee filters are made from the best quality stainless steel available. They are made with thick BPA-free construction and stainless steel micro mesh filter, with the lid of the filter being made up of a silicone O-Ring, which facilitates comfortable fit and less seal deterioration. It comes with side mount grips for immediate removal after brewing. It is super easy to use; just like a k-cup. It fit perfectly into my machine and was easily removed as well.

Doesn’t all this make these Keurig k-cups as the perfect selection for a perfect coffee day? Moreover, the k-cups are compatible with a wide range of brewing systems. You name one and yes, it fits it! Compatible with:

A set of 3 pods sells for just $9.99 on amazon (plus free shipping for prime members).

Finlandia Butter

I’m participating in the Finlandia butter campaign through bzzagent and I have to say before this campaign I had never tried their butter and let me tell you I am so glad I got the chance to because it’s irresistibly creamy unlike no other butter that I’ve tried, It is truly different and just super creamy, buttery and delicious whether you put it on a bagel, muffin, while cooking and much more !
 
40920990198713137829
 
Jeremy also thinks Finlandia butter is smooth, creamy and delicious. It is easy to spread on muffins, bagels, and toast, which is great because there is nothing worse than hard, un-spreadable butter. 
 
For this campaign I received an oven mitt along with some coupons for me to purchase free butter in the store and also coupons to share with friends. My friends hadn’t heard of it either but were willing to give it a shot.

What makes Finlandia Butter so special is that it’s crafted with pure milk from family owned farms giving it that rich and creamy buttery taste. Finlandia’s savory butter has been made for over a century from the milk of cows who spend good weather freely grazing the picturesque pastures of family-owned farms within Finland’s Valio Co-op. Since 1905, they’ve been ensuring pure and delicious dairy products by keeping their delectable milk free from hormones and additives, including rBst.
 
 
 Finlandia Health Facts:

 The Ceviche was delicious and a must try if you find yourself at Ñaño Ecuadorian Kitchen. 

The portion sizes were quite large, my dad and I shared the Carne en Palito and there was plenty of food. The meat dishes are on the saltier side, as you would expect from South American meat, but nonetheless delicious, tender and cooked to perfection.

Enjoy delicious, fresh home made meals in a friendly and cozy environment. So stop by soon to have a little taste of Ecuador. I would recommend you make a reservation as the restaurant is quite small with only 6 tables (and two outside when the patio is open).

PhillySwirl Frozen Novelties: Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free summer treats!

Philly_Swirl_logo

Can two nice young men from Philly make a living selling Italian ice on the beaches of Florida? That’s what the founders of PhillySwirl, Max and Alex, set out to discover some 20 years ago.

In 1987, PhillySwirl’s co-founders, Alex Plotkin and Max Lapin were attending Penn State University. One day Alex was leaving his dorm room and the door hit another student in the head. That unfortunate student was Max Lapin. (Talk about opportunity knocking!). After becoming friends and graduating college they came up with a really sweet – if not a bit crazy – idea: Drive 1,100 miles to Tampa, Florida and start selling Italian ice!

To their delight, their simple enterprise and delicious frozen treats not only soon caught on, but captured the attention and taste buds of the entire city of Tampa. Encouraged, the partners had another big idea. Why not combine two or more of their Italian ice flavors to create something entirely new in the frozen treat world? And so “the swirl” was born. Now with so many inventive and delicious flavors to choose from, PhillySwirl has become a family favorite across the entire country!

IMG_1133

These sweet treats are colorful, classic Italian ices swirled into a variety of products like :

PHIswl_SwirlStix_12ct_HR1

PHIswl_Popperz_8ct_HR

PHIswl_Spoonz_6ct_HR1

Fun, Delicious and Allergy-friendly, all Swirled Into One! PhillySwirl frozen novelties are free of the top 8 allergens and are made in a peanut and tree nut free facility.

Why settle for just one flavor? Each box contains a variety of flavors like cotton candy, very berry, orange dream, banana split, rainbow, and even a mystery flavor.

FullSizeRender

I recently tried the PhillySwirl Popperz, PhillySwirl Candy Spoonz, and PhillySwirl Stix. All three varieties are dairy free and 100 calories or less per serving. Jeremy LOVES the Swirl Stix. 

PhillySwirl Stix flavors:

Orange Dream – Orange & Marshmallow swirl
Verry Berry – Blackberry & Cherry swirl
Cotton Candy – A swirl that speaks for itself
Banana Split – Banana, marshmallow & strawberry shortcake swirl
Applelicious – red and green apple swirl
Rainbow – White lemon, Cherry & Blueberry Swirl

Swirl Stix Nutrition

Swirl Stix Nutritional Information 

Ingredients: Water,Sugar,Corn Syrup,Natural and Artificial flavors, Orange Juice Concentrate, Stabilizer (Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Citrate, Guar Gum, Pectin) Citric Acid, Red # 40, Yellow # 5&6, Blue # 1

While I did enjoy most flavors, I am not a fan of orange and I did find some of the products to be a little too sweet, probably because of the 20+ grams of sugar per serving. But Jeremy is loving them and it’s better than most frozen novelties on the market.

Candy Spoonz Nutritional Information

Candy Spoonz Nutritional Information

 

Over all, PhillySwirl frozen novelties are a great tasting and healthier gluten free, dairy free alternative to ice cream and other calorie and fat-laden summer treats. 

PhillySwirl frozen novelties can be found in groceries stores, Walmart Supercenters and club stores across the US.

Goldfish® goes gluten free with Goldfish® Puffs

4243449011cde28f0edcf85144503940737a5c69Can you guess why he is so happy?  ‘Cause he is gluten-free! 

Goldfish® is proud to present a gluten free offering to consumers with Goldfish Puffs. Pepperidge Farm® has responded to the increase in demand for gluten free products both for allergies and for health and wellness perceptions with its Goldfish Puffs, and I for one am over the moon!! I LOVED Goldfish® as a little girl and I am excited to finally be able to eat them again.

FullSizeRender

The new Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs, come in super-bold flavors but all have the same incredible crunch factor. That’s right — your favorite childhood snack has been taken to a whole new level. Not only are these Goldfish the brand’s first gluten-free option, they are also bigger and bolder than the original Goldfish®. These larger bites, which remind me of cheese puffs, come in four amped-up flavors: Mega Cheese, Cheddar Bacon, Barbeque, and Buffalo Wing. Did I say four? Well it’s actually six as of May! Last month Goldfish Puffs introduced two new bold and fun flavors: Twisted Grilled Cheese and Sizzlin’ Hot Wings

These wholesome, puffed snacks have a unique, crunchy texture, are baked, contain no artificial preservatives, and are made in a certified gluten-free facility. It’s great that this snack is made in a GF facility and it really helps kids and parents avoid cross contamination issues. 

And all this decadent flavor won’t blow your calorie-budget either: a generous 41-piece serving has just 140 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 10 grams of whole grains.

GoldfishNutrition

I was sent both new flavors to sample. Jeremy and I both love the new flavors, especially the Sizzlin’ Hot Wings flavor.

Do you like eating hot wings? If your answer is yes then I think you will like the Buffalo Wing flavor.  I mean who doesn’t like Buffalo Wings? And now you can get the same flavor in a snack!  It’s not as hot as I was expecting but was still incredibly flavorful. Needless to say, the bag did not last long in our house!  

FullSizeRender (1)

What I like most about these Goldfish Puffs is that they are light but not filled with a lot of air like other puff snacks.  And knowing they are baked in a certified gluten free facility, and have no artificial preservatives makes me feel so much better about eating them, and there is no need to worry about cross contamination. 

To support Goldfish Puffs and the launch of the new flavors, there will be an coupon dropping on June 14th in Sunday Newspapers! This is one product that truly satisfies the afternoon munchies.

Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® Puffs are available in major supermarkets, grocery stores and mass merchandisers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.99 for a 7oz bag.  A 2oz bag is also available in convenience stores for a suggested retail price of $.99.

MAIVITA Premium Organic Coconut Flour Review

71ZSHjW-c8L._SL1500_

Have you heard about the benefits of baking with coconut flour? As the interest in grain free diets continues to rise, many cooks are looking to alternative flours, such as coconut flour, for their baking and everyday needs. 

The Finest Coconut Flour From The Finest People

MAIVITA Premium Organic Coconut Flour comes from only the best coconut crops in the Philippines The manufacturing and production process follows strict guidelines under a fair trade supply chain.

With a texture very similar to wheat flour, MAIVITA Premium Organic Coconut Flour provides the perfect wheat and gluten substitute. It is also high in fiber and protein, and low in sodium, cholesterol, and digestible carbohydrates. Though it is free from gluten proteins, coconut flour contains an impressive number of other proteins. In fact, 100 grams of coconut flour contain 19.3 grams of protein, or 38 percent of our recommended daily value – far more protein per serving than other leading flours such as white, cornmeal or rye.

71rr8ccZSTL._SL1500_

Why Coconut?

Quick Tips

1. In baking, you cannot substitute coconut flour for wheat or other grain-based flours at a 1:1 ratio.  They are not equivalent. Coconut flour is extraordinarily absorbent and very little coconut flour is needed to successfully produce a recipe.  In baked goods, you generally want to substitute 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup coconut flour for 1 cup grain-based flour.  You will also need to increase the number of eggs. 

2. Coconut flour can also be substituted for up to 1/3rd of wheat flour in standard recipes. Baking with coconut flour presents unique challenges as coconut flour does not perform the same as grain-based flours in baking.  Due to its high fiber content
it absorbs lots of liquid, so increase the liquid in the recipe by an equal amount. Because it is gluten free, it is necessary to add egg, chia gel, or even substitute a small amount of tapioca flour to assure that it binds properly.

3. Every flour has its own characteristics and baked goods made with coconut flour tend to be dense and dry.  To reduce dryness, make sure to use plenty of eggs and you can also add cooked, pureed or mashed fruit or vegetables to your baked goods to increase the moisture. 

Where to Buy

You can purchase MAIVITA Premium Organic Coconut Flour – which comes in a 3 lb. bag that will last you months – on Amazon for $15.97. That’s only $5.32 per lb.

Product Review: Zantex SkinnyStix

Earlier this year, Shape featured actress/comedian/anti-vaccination nut Jenny McCarthy, and focused on her hot body and how she manages to stay thin.  She claims it’s not hours at the gym (or photoshop), but instead her secret is a diet supplement, Zantrex SkinnyStix.  Here is an excerpt of the article below: 

screen-shot-2015-01-14-at-9-26-52-am

Whether or not Jenny McCarthy is telling you the whole truth or not, let’s look at this product in a little more detail.

Zantrex-3 has transformed an intense, super- powerful weight-loss formula into a take-anywhere powder available in 3 flavors: Electric Lime, Tangy Tangerine or Berry Fusion. This five-calorie powder you mix in water can help increase satiety and reduce caloric intake without “conscious” dieting.

1c003bf14e68117d84645259e77290c618e87bd5

Use promo code SSReview for 20% off and free shipping!

The directions note that you should use this in conjunction with any sensible diet and exercise program, and individual results will vary. So if you are looking for a miracle product to help you lose weight without changing anything in your daily exercise routine or diet, think again. But if you are looking for something that can be effective in weight loss, paired with diet and exercise, then you might want to try SkinnyStix.

SkinnyStix also claims to control appetite, elevate your mood, increase energy, burn fat, provide stamina, and improve focus.

Let’s talk about the good first.  

Now, the bad stuff:

Jenny does have another good point. “they’re a great addition to my cocktail”. Now caffeine and alcohol are not a good mix, but let’s face it people do it all the time with soda and red bull. Personally I do not, but it happens.  (Again, I’m not advocating for this! As always, use precaution when drinking!!) Using a five-calorie drink mix instead of a high calorie, high sugar mixer can help you drink less calories and decrease your intake of sugar, two things important if you’re on a diet, or watching your weight.

Use promo code SSReview for 20% off and free shipping!

You can purchase Skinny Stix on their website for $29.99 (or $25 on Amazon

Mayacamas Fine Foods All-Natural Gluten Free Pasta Sauce & Gravy

For 30 years, Mayacamas Fine Foods has produced high quality dry seasoning mixes at its facility in the heart of the wine country, Sonoma California. Now, by popular request of many local support groups and concerned consumers, the SOUPSGRAVIESPASTA SAUCES and SKILLET TOSS mixes are available GLUTEN FREE!

In 1972, Ross and Pauline Webber, together with Jack and Mary Taylor founded what is known today as Mayacamas Fine Foods. Ross had been an executive with Dole Pineapple for many years and was looking for a chance to start his own business. Mary Taylor was a well-known gourmet chef and was looking for someone to produce and market her newly created seasoning blends. They met quite by chance as their paths randomly crossed at a bottle manufacturing company where they were both purchasing some supplies to begin their separate ventures. They quickly formed a partnership and began producing Mary’s seasoning blends. They soon developed dry soup mixes and eventually some sauces. Today all products are gluten free and all natural. 

Gluten Free products include:

SOUP PASTA SAUCE GRAVY SKILLET TOSS GOURMET SAUCE
 
Potato Leek
Tomato
Dark Mushroom
Lentil
French Onion
Peppered Lemon
Chicken Fettuccine
Creamy Clam
Alfredo
Pesto
Cream Pesto
Chicken
Brown
Savory Herb
Turkey(all vegetarian)
Black Olive Pesto
Green Olive Pesto
Seafood
Spicy
Garden Style
Dried Tomato
Hollandaise

91rlYtf39EL._SX425_

The Pesto Pasta Sauce is the classic Basil and garlic sauce for pasta. Not only can is be used with pasta, but also makes a great compliment to all kinds of dishes. When made extra thick, it makes a great sauce to be used over steaks and chicken. You can add a little to your favorite red sauce or, sprinkle over some fresh sliced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and slices of mozzarella cheese. The pesto is all natural and vegetarian.

Ingredients: Basil, Garlic, Romano Cheese (Skim milk, Bacterial Culture, Salt, Enzymes), Salt, Parsley, Spices, Guar Gum. Contains NO Trans Fats / Hydrogenated Oils

91Bte7rD3NL._SX522_

Even before I was gluten free, making gravy was NEVER something I enjoyed.  It never came out right and once I did find a good consistency, I could never replicate it. Until recently, it was incredibly hard to find gluten free gravy mixes that actually tasted good. Now there are a few brands out there, but I do have to say Mayacamas is by far my favorite. Mayacamas makes 4 different gravy mixes – chicken gravy, brown gravy, savory herb gravy and turkey gravy.

mayacamas-chicken-flavored-gravy-mix-0-75-oz-pack-of-12_964604

My favorite is the Simple Chicken Gravy Mix. It is super quick and easy to make.

Ingredients: Potato Starch, Whey, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Autolyzed Yeast, Onion, Celery Guar Gum, Spices. Contains NO Trans Fats / Hydrogenated Oils.

91e-rg2uKNL._SX522_

Products are made in a gluten free facility and are routinely tested using the widely accepted ELISA method to ensure their gluten free status as determined by the World Health Organization.
