Unjunk Your Junk Food!

DSCN5974

You may know as a reader that my down fall in life is junk food. Usually the more unhealthy it is the more I like it! So naturally when I was given a chance recently to review a book that could help make my evil habits a little more healthy I was excited. Unjunk Your Junk Food is a book about how to chose healthy alternatives to your conventional snack foods. Written by the creators of NaturallySavvy.com (a site you have likely heard about) along with Lisa Tsakos this books takes a dive into the ingredients that are actually inside some of your favorite foods.
When the UPS man brought this book  to my door I opened it right away and started to take a peak inside. It starts off with some of the basics on nutrition like ingredients and making label reading easier with a list of key terms and what they REALLY mean. I was actually startled by some the these ingredients that I suppose I had never really thought about before making me really not want to eat anything that has been processed.

The book then goes into your favorite junk food categories. It has many name brand and store brand products listed with a full color picture. I love that not only does it just say that it is bad but it gives you the reasons as well! Then on the next page there is the healthy alternative, and again it doesn't just say this is better eat it eat it! It gives your the reason that this is a healthier selection. Most of the healthy brands are brands I have heard of and I think some actually surprised me like picking my Breyer's ice cream over Blue Bunny removing gluten, fat, calories and TONS OF SODIUM! If you can't find that brand in a store near you most also have a couple honorable mention products that you can substitute and still being taking that healthy step forward.

If like me you are becoming increasingly worried about the things put into our food, or if you just want to know how you can make your life a little bit healthier I highly recommend this book. You can find it for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart and of course on the Naturally Savvy Website.

This looks like an interesting book. Nice that they made a book like this cause I am sure there is a lot in it that most people do not know about.

#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

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite!

In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
