ORGANIC INDIA’s Moringa Leaf Powder and Capsules plus tea #momsmeet @organicindiausa

Consult your healthcare professional prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medication or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

I strive to live a healthy life and set a good example for my family. It mostly comes naturally to me because my mom always did that. I remember her jogging at 5:15am in the morning before work because it was the only time she had to get her exercise in and keep herself fit. She is in her early 80's and she still exercises about an hour a day. Mom is in amazing shape through years of exercise and a healthy diet. She takes a ton of supplements too. 


I get my fitness in mostly in the afternoons after work on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and some Sundays. It works for me and keeps me fit. I take supplements on a regular basis but had never tried Moringa Leaf though I had heard about it. I knew it was a supplement that contains lots of nutrients. One of the first things that caught my eye was ORGANIC with this brand. I really prefer foods and supplements that are organic so that got me interested. I had the opportunity to check out Moringa Leaf Powder and Capsules along with their teas recently through Mom's Meet and Organic India.

ORGANIC INDIA has a true mission which appealed to me. They seek to provide true wellness for everyone by producing 100% organic, pure, and natural products. More and more I seek to buy foods that are organic and pure for my family. I see so many sick people everyday with poor diets and no fitness regimens and they wonder why. There are some things you can control and some you cannot but the more good things you can put in your body the better. So I really like that Organic India is a company that works to do good on a daily basis. Organic India strives to create a sustainable global environment starting from home in India. They work closely with thousands of family farmers in India on tens of thousands of acres of certified organic farmland. The company actively promotes sustainable agriculture and pays these farmers premium prices for their crops. That is a some thing that makes me feel good when I consider my supplement options at the store.
 

Organic India has a ton of great products from supplements to teas. I was surprised when I took at peek at their website. Have you ever tried Holy Basil, sometimes called Tulsi tea? This is a trademark product for ORGANIC INDIA. It comes in over 20 yummy flavors. I love to relax in the afternoon with a big mug of their tea. It is so calming.  They know everyone leads such a busy life these days, we all need a little mug of something warm and healthy to keep us going. The company also has a variety of organically grown herbal supplements, including the Moringa Leaf Powder and Capsules that I was able to try out recently as well.

So I know I was curious to learn more and I am sure you are too. What is Moringa? Moringa is considered one of the most complete, nutrient-dense plants on Earth, containing over 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and abundant minerals. Moringa leaves have been eaten for thousands of years as a super-food nutritional supplement.  They are even  used as a supplement to combat malnutrition in impoverished countries. The daily use of Moringa as a dietary supplement can help support nutritional balance. This a concentrated superfood is both alkalizing and energizing. At the same time it is abundant in vitamins, minerals and complex amino acids.

Moringa is a powerful bit of nutrition that is easy to incorporate into everyday meals and beverages. You can sprinkle it in soups, smoothies, and over salads, or combine it with almost anything to create a power-packed punch of nutrition. Moringa can be mixed in with any of your kid's meals to add a serving of the green superfood to kids’ diets as well. Add it to stews, soups, pot pies or whatever they enjoy the most. I won't tell if you won't....shhhh! My tween is pretty open to most foods and supplements and she was even as a kid so it was pretty easy for me. I made a smoothie and I just told her to try it. She thought it was yummy. I used frozen bananas and strawberries and added the Moringa Leaf Powder. Easy peasy and I had a nutritional but fast breakfast ready for her in a minute. You work it how you can mamas, if you have to keep it our secret then so be it. I bet you could even add it to macaroni and cheese or pasta dishes. Get those supplements in any way you can.

HOT + SWEET Smoked Spanish Paprika Powder adds a dash of flair and flavor to my recipes #SmokedPaprika




I love to cook and bake. Paprika is one of the more interesting herbs that you can use in your recipes to add some flair. You can add it to chile or eggplant dishes and it really brings out the flavor. I was excited to try two new kinds of Paprika from KIVA that are both a bit different. Paprika can vary widely and there are actually tons of varieties. I received one bottle of sweet and one bottle of hot smoked Spanish paprika powder.

This is not any paprika either. KIVA imports their beautiful smoked paprika from the famous La Vera region of Spain. Following a century old recipe, hand-harvested peppers are smoked dried over holm oak for a minimum of 14 days. This gives the KIVA paprika its unique rich flavor.



They are both really different though they are the same spice. Sweet Smoked Paprika has a deep, rich flavor with a slightly sweet undertone.
On the other hand, the Hot Smoked Paprika has a deep, rich, more spicy flavor.  Here is a simple recipe that I have made before that tastes wonderful. You can use either variety of Paprika depending on your personal preferences. Here is a fun appetizer or first course where you can use your paprika. I must credit Food for the idea and recipe. 

Goat Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomato Crostini


Ingredients

  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
  • 2 tablespoons oil, from the tomatoes (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 bunch basil leaves
  • Crostini

  • 1 loaf French baguette
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions

  1. Slice the baguette into 1/4 thick slices.
  2. Brush the slices lightly with the olive oil.
  3. Place on a baking sheet and toast in a 425 oven until browned.
  4. Cool completely.
  5. Combine the sundried tomatoes, oil and goat cheese in a food processor and puree until very smooth. There should not be any lumps.
  6. On each crostini place a small basil leaf, or half a larger leaf.
  7. Spread the goat cheese mixture on the crostini, covering half way up the basil leaf.
  8. Arrange on a platter and garnish platter with additional basil.

A little bit about KIVA and their spices. Their paprika is only made in small batches to ensure optimum aroma, color and flavor.  Think about all the places this paprika can add flavor and depth to rice, meat, seafood, stews, soups, eggs and even vegetables. At Kiva, they strive to provide you with innovative spices from around the world. They do this by ensuring that the food they share tastes great, is healthy and is of the highest quality. Kiva remains committed to using only ingredients that are sourced directly from local farmers that practice sustainable and eco-friendly methods.

Juju Aroma Tea Tree Essential Oil is great for a myriad of uses plus a discount and a giveaway #JujuAroma


Tea Tree Essential Oil is a wonderful little trick to have in your beauty bag. First of all it has a fresh and clean aroma. JuJu Aroma Tea Tree Essential Oil comes in a perfectly sized 10ml bottle too.  If you are a stickler for 100% pure, unadulterated essential oils, Juju Aroma has them. They have lots of other oils in addition to Tea Tree Essential Oil. I use them for all kinds of beauty needs...they are great. Essential oils are distilled from organic, aromatic plants that are grown, harvested and processed all over the world. They have been ensured to stay in their purest state.

The quality does vary from brand to brand and I know personally I have seen a huge variation. Some oils just don't have the quality that I demand. I like that all of Juju Aroma essential oils are tested with Gas Chromatography (GC). This guarantees that the oils are pure and the amount of chemical components are within the predicted norm.  I know each time I open a bottle of JuJu Aroma Essential Oil it is going to be a quality product.  They even look like a high quality product on the exterior of the bottle. All of the JuJu bottles are made of a semi-transparent black glass. They offer the most protection for high quality essential oils.


JuJu Aroma even uses special caps for safety. They are tamper-resistant with twist-and-break seals. They also have built in, oil resistant dropper inserts. They are really focused on ensuring that  clients are protected and feel confident with JuJu Aroma oils.You can see, smell and feel the difference.  You can use tea tree oil for so many things from skin irritations to blending it with other oils for beauty creams, lotions and butters. Let me know what works for you, I love to share.


Take a peek at their label. You can see right above here. The labels on the JuJu Aroma bottles utilize high quality hot stamping technology with silk screen printing. Everyone spills a bit of oil from time to time even if you are careful. It has happened to me too. When you accidentally spill some oil on the label, you can wipe it off easily without worrying that it will stick onto the label. JuJu Aroma has offered a special discount to readers of Glamamamas Goodies too. New customers can get 10% off coupon
