Teeccino & TeeChia Start Your New Year off Right!

Like many Americans I say every year that I am going to make a better life for myself and my family, and like many I fail. This year I have become bound and determined to keep that promise. My family has been making great efforts to live a Gluten Free lifestyle and reduce our caffeine intake. Recently I was introduced to some great products that are helping us do just that. I am an oatmeal LOVER so naturally I was eager to try this first product TeeChia High Performance Super Seeds Cereal. I received two flavor to try, the Blueberry Date and the Cinnamon Cranberry. I first tried the Cinnamon Cranberry which smelled simply AMAZING! I mixed it as directed and wasn't really a fan of the texture, although the flavor was great. When I made the Blueberry Date I decided to leave out a little bit of water and the texture was much better. I really preferred  the Cinnamon Cranberry for a hot morning cereal, I found a great use for the Blueberry Date though! I discovered if I take 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 banana and 1/3 cup TeeChia Cereal it makes for an amazing and filling smoothie! Here are some of the great benefits of TeeChia Cereal:

  • Gluten Free
  • 6 grams of Fiber per serving!
  • 1100 ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • No Sugar Added
  • 26 Grams of Whole Grains
  • Antioxidant-Rich Seeds & Fruits
The second product that we review here in our household was Teeccino. Teeccino was quite an interesting product, a naturally caffeine free herbal coffee, I know what you are thinking that really isn't that interesting.lol Here comes the interesting part:
  • Naturally Caffeine-free:no processing or chemical residues
  • Non Acidic:helps restore your alkaline balance
  • Natural Energy Boost:from nutrients not stimulants
  • Heart Healthy potassium and soluble fiber (1 gram per cup)
  • Prebiotics are found in the ground coffee and Inulin in the teebag

I bet I caught your attention at the word Teebag huh?? I was a little curious when these arrived. Basically it is coffee in tea bag form! Have hot water?!? You can have a cup of Organic, caffeine free coffee. Now I will admit I have never had a cup of coffee. So this review was left up to my husband. He was leery at first because of the words CAFFEINE FREE! However after I snuck it into the coffee pot the first time he was hooked! He said the flavor was very deep and rich, he couldn't even tell it was caffeine free. We tried one Teebag to just to see how it worked. It was a pretty cool little thing! We decided they would be perfect for our camping adventures and has since been placed in the camper.

*I received the above mentioned products by being a NaturallySavvy Sampler. All views expressed were that of my own and were in no way influenced.*

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
