Organic Golden Flax Seed for good health: a Review #goldenflaxseed

You know that I am the healthy and fit mama by now. Well, if you had an 80+ year old mama yourself who keeps herself in tip-top shape it would motivate you too. I really find I have to work harder to keep my body in great shape and I rely on supplements and things like Golden Flax Seed to help me out a little bit. The nice part about Golden Flax seed is that it is the perfect option to get Certified Organic Omega 3s for Vegetarians and Vegans. This was always an issue for my husband since he is vegetarian. Now you have a great way to add those Omega 3's into your diet if you follow a Vegetarian or Vegan lifestyle. I still like to sneak in some lean meat, chicken and fish here and there but I need my Omega 3's so I love my Golden Flax seed.

I recently had the opportunity to try out an organic, non-GMO American grown and processed Golden Flax seed that is actually packaged in downtown Chicago from eSutras.  I love to support US based businesses so I was thrilled to check them out. I love that this Golden Flax seed is non-GMO.  That makes me feel wonderful.

This is so easy to use have three options with this easy to handle 8oz container: Flip Top, Sprinkle or Pour to your desired amount!  Studies have indicated that Golden Flax seed can help heart disease and has the potential to lower cholesterol.  It has been shown to have high levels of Alpha linoleic acid as well. This is one type of Omega 3 fatty acid, similar to those found in fish such as salmon.

A best practice is to grind flaxseed in a coffee or seed grinder in order to enhance their digestibility and increase their nutritional value. I have an extra grinder that I use for nuts and seeds. They are very inexpensive and great to have around the kitchen. If you are going to add ground flaxseed to a cooked cereal or grain dish eSutras suggests doing so at the end of cooking since the soluble fiber in the flaxseed can thicken liquids if left too long.

Ideas for flaxseed recipes are everywhere from Pinterest to Instagram. Some of the ways I often use Golden Flax Seed is to sprinkle ground flaxseed onto my hot or cold cereal like oatmeal.  I always add a bit of ground flaxseed to my homemade muffins and bread recipes. A fave and fast flax seed energy shake for breakfast is easy too. Add ground flaxseed to a blender along with a frozen banana, a bit of spinach, some almond milk (or dairy milk) and some fruit. Try blueberries, cherries, peaches or whatever is available and blend it up with some ice. You can also sprinkle some ground flaxseed on cooked vegetables for a nice, nutty flavor.  The possibilities are really endless. You can even add a tablespoon of flaxseed oil to smoothies to give a delicious treat a fiber boost!

I was impressed with the quality of the Organic Golden Flaxseed that eSutras sent me. It tasted fresh and ground up smoothly.  I used it in a smoothie that I shared with my little one. She thought it was yummy and so did I. I plan on baking some banana chocolate chip muffins later this week and you can bet they will have some Golden Flaxseed in there (shhh, don't tell hubby he loves it as long as I don't tell him what I have hidden inside my treats!).  The container is convenient and stores well. I am happy that eSutras Organic Golden Flax seed is available on Amazon since it makes my shopping very convenient.

PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands let you exercise anywhere:a Review #phantomfit

Some of my friends ask me how I do it? What do you mean by "do it?" I mean keep fit after 40.  It is a lifestyle for me. Does my weight stay exactly the same week to week? Of course not. Don't be totally ridiculous. But I am careful. I enjoy life and I love to eat but I know it is not an endless pit. Well, it could be if I just ate everything I wanted. I have to really think about it more and more as I get older. I will treat myself but then go back to the diet and fitness plan.  I don't mean "diet" in the crazy sense either, just a healthy eating plan that includes lots of fresh veggies, lean meats and fish and fruit. A few treats here and there too of course.
 Included in the whole master plan is fitness. It doesn't work if you don't eat right so pair it all together in whatever way it works for you. I try to keep it fresh with new equipment and even a new pair or capris or top here and there to keep me motivated. I recently had the opportunity to try out PhantomFit Resistance bands.  These are a fantastic fitness solution because they:
  • Are perfect for physical therapy exercises all the way to intense workouts
  • Works flawlessly for arm, ankle, and leg workouts
  • Are separated by resistance level to meet your needs
  • Are extremely durable and long-lasting
  • Are lightweight and portable so you can take them anywhere including on a plane

They are easy to learn how to use and very comfortable to use anywhere on your body to add that necessary resistance to build and sculpt muscle.   They are color coded for resistance so you can start at the right level for you from light to extra heavy. You can even combine bands!

What's Included with the PhantomFit Resistance Bands Package

  • 1 Blue "Light" Band
  • 1 Red "Medium" Band
  • 1 Green "Heavy" Band
  • 1 Black "X-Heavy" Band
  •  Nylon carrying case for portability
  • A bonus is the PhantomFit favorite workout music downloadable as a mp3 file

I am using the red Medium PhantomFit Resistance Loop bands here for lunges and let me tell you these give your legs a real workout. I am in top shape...I do bootcamp type workouts regularly, run hills and all kinds of crazy regimens and these are the real deal. They feel comfortable and don't bind either. I can think of all kinds of ways to incorporate these into everyday fitness plans.  My PhantomFit Resistance Bands are definitely coming with me on my next business trip....easy way to avoid that crowded gym and still get my workout in!  I bought my PhantomFit bands on Amazon.

Rtgs 20 Micro LEDs String Lights Review #rtgspoducts

If you have been looking for battery operated string lights I found a great brand frot you. These are so tiny but are super bright. You really have to see them in action to believe how gorgeous they look. Perfect for summer parties or get togethers...or just to light up some of your space. Rtgs Products makes these 20 LEDs Micro LED Battery Operated String Lights and they really are the ideal lighting element to use for any decorative project or event with no worries about plugs or electricity. 

They have a very thin wire that hosts 20 very small LED bulbs. Each micro bulb is about the size of a rice grain but is  intensely bright. They give off a steady 360 degree viewing angle so they illuminate in every direction. It provides a pretty look that I love.  It really makes any area from an outdoor deck to a tree or trees or even a porch look special and even adds a bit of glamour.

I tried these Starry String Lights out this weekend and they worked perfectly. They lasted all evening long and added a beautiful glow to our weekend get together with friends on our back deck.  My friends ooohed and aaahed the minute they walked around back. Everyone was amazed that these beautiful lights operate on a few little batteries and put out so much light. A really special look.  The company shares with me that when used with new batteries they will last for over 48 hours. They are easy to hide, give beautiful true color and use a fraction of energy needed by regular light strings.

Some people also call Starry String Lights Fairy Lights and I can see why.  They are so delicate and pretty...they emanate a fairy-like light perfect for summer or fall evenings indoors or out. 

You can find Rtgs Micro LED's String Lights right on Amazon too so you can have them fast ready for your next outdoor party or get together.

I have tried so many creams and lotions but I have been working towards using more and more organic products.  I recently found a wonderful organic Shea butter than it imported directly from Ghana.  Beauty By Shea has a lovely and luxurious Shea butter product that keeps my skin looking beautiful and actually kind of luminious.  It is so easy to use too. Beauty By Shea crafts organic, raw ivory Shea butter direct from Ghana.

As you use it regularly you will be able to easily determine if you need more or less.   Shea Butter can even melt in the heat but this is not an issue.  All you need to do is simply pop it in the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes and it will solidify again. I like to store it at room temperature or in my refrigerator at home for the ideal consistency.

Shea butter is always a staple in my creations.  I love Beauty By Shea Shea Butter because it is organic and a high quality product to work with.  I feel like I am using the highest quality ingredients which is important to me.  I will sometimes make a body butter for friends or colleagues to give as a little gift.  Shea butter is a critical ingredient in any handmade soaps, body butters, lotions, and conditioners.

A fun look for a party or celebration or just a GNO or in. We had a lot of fun getting ready for the concert we drew on our arms and on our faces. We brought it with us and while we were tailgating pre-concert we did up our friends too

KIND Nuts and Spices NEW flavors are a perfect afternoon pick me up with a hot or iced coffee #kindawesome

If you haven't tried KIND bars yet you better run over to the store right now or get over to the KIND website if you want to save time.  You are missing an amazing snack that is chick full of good stuff to keep your energy up up up! I remember the first time I tried one...the hotel out them out during one of the breaks at our business meeting. People went nuts!  It was so funny because everyone was checking out the clean ingredient list and oohing and ahhing over the flavors. The upper management was not so thrilled because people were paying more attention to their KIND bars than the presentation. They are that yummy. I have a meeting coming up and I am hoping that KIND bars are going to be available for the coffee breaks again.  It would really make my meeting a lot more fun..and tolerable...ooops, I didn't say that last part.

Now  KIND has added a few yummy new options to keep it all interesting. Caramel Almond + Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond is the newest option to the KIND Nuts and Spices line of bars. Now the line  includes eight delicious and a tiny bit indulgent flavors. Believe it or not, each bar only has 5g of sugar (or less) and nothing artificial at all. That is a really low sugar option...much better than so many other options out there in the snack-o-sphere. A great snack to stash in your purse or even to take on the plane.  See, I have that upcoming meeting on my mind....gotta fly down south in a week or so. A KIND bar IS going in my purse.

KIND's newest flavors demonstrate that you can naturally keep sugar to a minimum while still allowing for a sweet and indulgent flavor. Each KIND bar is also crafted from a healthy foundation of whole almonds. We all know that studies have demonstrated the heart healthy benefits and even life-extending properties of almonds.

A little about each bar and my experiences so you can know all about them even before your first bite.  Caramel Almond + Sea Salt is made with a seemingly indulgent blend of savory sea-salt combined with sweet caramel. This heavenly combination is then drizzled over fresh, crunchy almonds.
KIND Caramel Almond + Sea Salt is a yummy low-sugar healthy snack that only tastes like you are stepping over the line into indulgence. It really is the best of both worlds.  I don't like to deprive myself but on the other hand, I work out 5-6 days a week and I don't want to undo my hard work.  KIND bars like this variety let me enjoy without guilt.

The other variety that I was able to sample was the KIND Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond barThis yummy bar is crafted by blending dark roast coffee and whole almonds along with honey. This amazing concoction is then drizzled in dark chocolate to form a bar that, again, with just 5g of sugar, only tastes like you are indulging yourself.

Both KIND Nuts and Spices bars contain a great blend of 7g fiber, 6g protein and 5g sugar.  An excellent blend to make you feel like you are treating yourself while providing energy and fuel to keep you going all day or all evening long. It is the perfect snack to carry you through a meeting, school or an endless plane ride. You can check and conveniently purchase these two new flavors out on the KIND website store. While you are there you can get more information on all their yummy bars and snacks.
