MegaFood – Fresh from Farm to Powder

I am reviewing a product offered for review to me by Momsmeet, a company that lets us review Better- for-you-Products.

Today I am reviewing MegaFood a Hew Hampshire company that uses family-owned farms real food to make a difference. They believe connecting, having real relationships with the farmers that produce the food they use.  The take to time to know the farmers and the land that the products are being grown!  MegaFood has been around sense 1973 winning awards for their supplements. Their are a pioneer in the natural products industry, manufacturing thirty-six different innovative FoodState Nutrients.  They have a proprietary Slo-Food Process a nine step process to bring their customers a pure fresh innovative vitamins and minerals from scratch all at home in New Hampshire.

The scientific Slo-Food  Process™ is a nine step journey from farm to your home.

Step one Relationship –  building relationships with the farmers that grow the natural produce they use.

Step two Picking – making sure that the right ingredients from family-owned farms. MegaFood™ buys over a half million pounds of fresh produce each year. These products are delivered directly to MegaFood, no third party manipulation!

Step three Grind -MegaFoodlikes to turn the massive amount of ingredients into a product that looks and has the texture comparative to Italian ice.  They accomplish this by taking whole fruits and vegetables then Smushing, Squishing and Smashing each product until it meets the right consistency. This scientific Slo-Food Process makes the food taste better as it should, because instead of the easy route of mass produced mega farms with who knows what going on the plants and in the ground it is real food from farms they are Real Friends with!

Step four Transform – This is where they take the Italian Ice looking real food tasty pulp and move it through a series of containers, tanks ( they actually have a video on their website where you can watch this process yourself) adding additional vitamins to better the final product for your kids! This process of integrating vitamins increases the potency of the powder thus allowing your body to absorb the product. Children’s as well as adult bodies recognizes real whole foods and is super fresh nutrients , thus able to readily absorb them.  Our bodies are happy to absorb natural ingredients and whole foods!

Step five Dry -They take a gentle and cool approach to drying the vegetables with their Refractance Window Drying™** technology carefully dries the squished fruits and veggies to the exact point of dehydration (no more, no less) while preserving all of the nutrients, colors, and aromas of the fresh produce. This allows them to preserve the items exactly if they are drying carrots then when the process is done all that’s left is dried carrots.

Step Six Tumble – This is the step MegaFoods uses to turn there dried produce into the Powder used in  the supplements.

Step seven Press -MegaFood uses a tablet presser in what they call their “magic treehouse” A real treehouse  They even let you watch this part of the process anytime you want.  It is a great to know a company is doing such a proper job in taking care with their product that they give you live access!  Watch our live cams 24/7 →

Step eight Seal – With MegaFoods other supplements such as vitamins this is where they take care to collect the proper amount and place them into the containers we know and love with an amber hue and seal them with care.

The final Step nine  Ensure – They use a hard working they call MegaWork quality assurance department  do what they do best, ensure quality. This is a process taken very very seriously.  This allows MegaFoods to guarantee their products are made with in a way that makes them a pioneer in the Natural products industry!

With MegaFoods Fresh From Farm to Powder Supplements be it the Kids Daily Multi, Kids Daily Immune or the Kids B-Centered are bodies naturally need and crave this real food!  How great is that!  We all know that getting our children the right amount of healthy fruits and vegetables as well as vitamins can be a full time job in itself.  MegaFood takes their partnership with Kauai Organic Farms, Lundberg Family Farms and Uncle Matt’s Organic to create these Mom approved, Kid friendly powders that are easily slipped into this that and the other drink at any meal or snack and Pow!  the job of making sure our children have the right amount of natural healthy intake a win win situation!

When MegaFoods partnered up with these family-Owned harms they did it to make the process of getting the essential vitamins and nutrients into kids without hassle.  These are Kid friendly powders that are easier to swallow than any other kid supplement on the market! It works for those who have a hard time swallowing for any reason and who are not ready or unable to swallow a pill form multi-vitamin.

A few tid bits about the three supplements I was able to sample – I have to say each was well enjoyed and even asked for – the Kids Daily B Centered, really did the job at keeping my kids focused and having a great sense of calm well being! It takes 236 hours for one batch of their from scratch farm fresh whole foods supplements!

Kids Daily Multi – This powder is made with 23 vitamins and minerals that are essential per serving containing Organic turmeric, carrots and fresh fruit!  All promoting healthy development!

Kids Daily Immune – Strengthens their immune system year round! This with the help of Uncle Matt’s Organic Farms echinacea and elderberries!

Kids Daily B Centered – This is to help with support daily  mental focus, sense of calmness and cognitive function. This supplement contains organic brown rice from the Lunberg Family farms. The formula of the Daily B-Centered has a full spectrum of FoodSafe B- Vitamins blended together to support healthy energy as well as physical levels.

My children found that regardless of which supplement I introduced, in juice mainly as “Tasty”.  “Mom are you sure you put something in here, it tastes like normal Orange Juice”. These simple statements and the way I could see my children become happier and healthier  let me know not only did I find a product that actually does what is intended, but that their little bodies were absorbing the vitamins and nutrients better than when we tried other multivitamins in powder or chewable form.

We started using the MegaFoods supplements as soon as I received my kit, we avoided the early fall colds, when all around us people did not.  I found that MegaFood Supplements were the perfect answer to how do I get the right meal put together three times a day that will give my growing children the natural Fruits, Veggies, Vitamins and Minerals they needed.  I would and have recommended these products to several moms who like me want their children to grow up healthy, healthy, healthy!  It is great knowing that all MegaFood supplements are gluten, dairy, soy, herbicide and pesticide free! Not just that they test them to make sure this is a true statement not just a item to place on a logo. There are no sweeteners they are not needed!  No flavorings, coloring or preservatives – to me as a mom that is a huge advantage and something I look for in my children’s products! The product claims no stomach upset and that in our case turned out also to be factual, Joy!

A Review of Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste

I am so excited to get the opportunity to share with you about a product line that s roots are unbelievable!  Get ready to rethink What, How and Why you use the toothpaste you currently use.  Today you get the chance to make a decision that will improve your oral health and it will also be helping support the very planet we have the pleasure of taking care of! Here we go – A new way to think about your Toothpaste experience!

I was so excited to receive my MomsMeet Himalaya kit!  I received six 5.29 oz types of toothpaste.  Himalaya has a full line of toothpastes that include; Whitening Complete Care Simply Peppermint, Whitening Complete Care Simply Mint, Complete Care Simply Peppermint, Simply Mint, Simply Cinnamon, Simply Spearmint, Original Neem and Pomegranate. The containers each of the toothpastes come in are recycled corrugated cardboard, really cool packaging!  As well as the paper that lines the toothpaste box is made with 100% recycled material and printed with Soy based inks.  Each box informs the consumer to store the toothpaste at room temperature, it includes the manufacturing licence number, batch number and a best before date. The Himalaya toothpastes are a product of India, and are manufactured by the Himalaya Drug Company in Makali, Bangalore India.

I chose to start with the Whitening Complete Care Simply Peppermint toothpaste.  My kits toothpastes best before dates are 2018, which is great seeing as I don’t have to worry my next toothpaste will expire before I get a chance to open up my next tube! The texture of the toothpaste is a perfect blend of not to runny and not stiff as glue.  I am able to squeeze the perfect amount on to your brush and you can do so with slight pressure.  You don’t have to worry about squeezing and having toothpaste everywhere or worse fighting with the tube and working out your hand muscles just to get the desired amount of toothpaste on your brush. I like a little more than a pea sized for my brushing experience, I am able to turn my brush upside down, say while turning on the faucet or replacing the cap without any product falling onto the counter, sink or heaven forbid your clothes!

The Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpastes use a unique blend of ingredients that leave your mouth clean and healthy.  They blend the Neem leaf which has been a staple in cleaning houses forever.  The Neem leaf works to keep the mouth clean, and it does just that, my mouth feels invigorated during and after my brushing routine.  Himalaya uses Triphala to clean your teeth and giving you a radiant smile.  Triphala was new to me and I have learned that is is a natural detoxifying formula in ancient Ayurveda.  Ayurveda is a type of complementary and alternative medicine that originated in India.  It is made up of three myrobalan fruits, myrobalan referring to several unrelated fruit-bearing plant species in South Asia (India).   Himalaya uses Pomegranate as an astringent in their toothpaste – How cool is that, Eco-friendly fruit that is SOOO good for you.  As the use it as an astringent it actually helps your gums by tightening the tissues which makes your gums look radiant and healthy!  By far this toothpaste sampling experience has been one that has changed my opinion on toothpaste and the way I look at products that say they are Eco-friendly.  Himalaya has put together a product in which each ingredient is needed for a specific reason, and those reasons are Natural, Healthy and has USDA organic pure herbs.  Their are a family owned company since 1930.  Their use of a sweetener that is not sugar is another reason I feel in love with this product line!  They use Xylitol which has been studied clinically to support good Oral Hygiene – You don’t see that on many sweeteners! That makes Himalaya Botanique a company that’s toothpaste contains Neem leaf  a age old hardworking cleaner, Xylitol a tooth-friendly sweeter, A natural fruit Astringent to keep those gums looking great with Pomegranate, as well as a detoxing formula that comes from a 5,000 year old alternative medical system that believes that the journey back to wholeness begins with nurturing the capacity for joy!!  A little something special for Himalaya Botanique’s Whitening Complete Care Toothpastes, they have two Simply Peppermint and Simply Mint both have additional ingredients to help remove surface stains. The combination is that of of Papain and Bromelain. Bromelain is a mixture of enzymes found in pineapples and Papain is a powerful digestive enzyme commonly found and extracted from the papaya fruit.  What a great way to use what is natural to help us remove the stains we gather on our teeth during the day from our mostly un-natural products!

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare offers a full line of herbal formulations for body care products.  I tried this product with the assumption that it would be a healthy toothpaste that would suffice period.  I was wrong.  I have been overwhelmed with how much I enjoy and look forward to my tooth brushing ritual these days!  I have learned that as I continue my tooth-brushing ritual, with Himalaya Toothpaste I am helping my body remove plaque tighten my gums and whiten my smile, just due to the time and effort taken to put together this specific formulation of ingredients.  Knowing that the toothpaste I am using was not just made in order to clean teeth and create a product, rather this is a company that has been family owned since 1930 and has taken the time and financial investment for clinical trials on their products, even the time and energy to use USDA certified Pure herbs.  This company top to bottom has put 5,000 years of natural complementary and practical medicinal knowledge along with real pure organic products to produce a toothpaste that leaves your mouth happy, maintaining whiter teeth, tighter gums and your mouth more Radiant!

Himalaya believes that is wellness is the path to happiness, they must contribute to the wellness of all things: the environment and communities.  They believe in supporting community health, sustainable farming and environmental responsibility.  I believe this company has a bright future, as I recommend Himalaya Toothpaste to everyone!  It is by far a superior product from the packaging to the ingredients!

A few more morsels of information about how YOU can try Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste yourself!! It retails for $5.99 and is Gluten, SLS, Fluoride and Carrageenan free!!

Stampin Up Sheltering Tree Tutorial

Stamp Right Up!

Hiya Stampers!

With the holiday madness coming to a close, I thought I would start the New Year off right and create my second video tutorial.  I knew as soon as I made this card that I wanted to create a video tutorial for it so I could share how great this set is.  I admit, when I first got it I wasn’t in love with it, but as soon as I started tinkering around with the images I quickly changed my mind.

You can find all the measurements for the card stock below, along with the video and a link to my online store where you can pick up any of the supplies you might need to complete this project.

My Babies are Going Running!!

Hi – This is a bit off the norm – but hey with me sometimes everything is a bit off the norm.

My children are both running at Ivy Creek Fund Run to raise money for there school and the Technology Department.  Both Abigail and Owen Love to Run!  They think this is the most exciting event!  They both have a goal of $300.  If they reach it they get Kid sized Kid loved prizes that make us go HMM; but happy they are happy – Like a Yard of Gum, and a Limo Ride to Ice Cream with the Principle!  Okay that does sound like fun! I was hoping you might consider taking a look at their fundraiser pages and decide if you can help support them.  It is a one time donation – not a donation by lap (Too many people say sure $5 a lap, then the kids run 40 laps) much easier this way:).

Here is an example of the e-mails the kids sent out.

Hi its Me Abigail/Owen!  I am running in the Ivy Creek Fun Run On October 18, 2013, to raise money for my school!  Would you please support me with a one time donation? My goal is to raise $300.00.

Also, If you would like to come see me run please give my parents a call. I would love to have you cheer me on!  I am helping raise much-needed funds to help our school with technology equipment to help better our education.

Please consider donating to this important cause. I am going to have a blast running!! Nothing more fun, and it’s even during school! You can use the link at the bottom of this post to visit my site where you can donate to my school fundraiser.

As always I really hope you have a super day!!

Abigail & Owen

Product Review: Calorease A New way to cut calories and help in the weight loss battle!

calorease-logo

I am a member of Momsmeet a great website that introduces moms and to great new products that have a positive influence in our lives and the world around us. Through that program I was had the opportunity to try a new

This is a simple two tablet supplement, that I took three times a day an hour before or after a meal three times a day.  As long as I stayed on track and take two tablets with a fat-containing meal everyday it gave me the chance to cut my caloric intake by 500 calories.  The best was that it does not contain a stimulant.  (Basically – I don’t have to stay home to cut my caloric intake! Nice).

calorease-product

It took between two and three weeks for me to see results.  As the weight I have carried is not going anywhere.  When I cannot go run around the block – (Oh I wish I could) this was a chance.  Ever since my back started having problems I started gaining weight.  When  a person is sad, hurting or just in a situation where moving around and exercising is not something that is easy or sometime even can be done. I was given the opportunity to try this new product gave me the chance to help me cut the calories going in, as I am not helping them go out as I would like too.

Its easy if you take it as recommended, and realize that this product is not a gift or a free pass at over eating, you can make some changes.  As with all products that help with weight loss, Calorease is not a Magic Pill, Special one hit wonder that makes the fat melt off – Just wanted you to know :).  I ate as I regularly do; a sensible diet with fruits and vegetables and the right amount of protein or supplement and yes the bit of chocolate here and their,I am Human :).  The Calorease product nicely does not contain gluten, lactose, yeast, wheat, sugar, salt, egg, soy, dairy, artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives. It is naturally sourced from grain and is suitable for vegans.  Calorease’s website contains sample meal plans to help you carry out your goal www.calorease.com the website will give you much useful information and ways to connect with Calorease and others directly. Calorease is also linked to the main social media sites for questions and reviews.

Like “Calorease” on Facebook to stay up to date with all their new and helpful information to help you meet your weight loss goals, as well as stay informed for contests and promotions!!

Sometimes seeing things with your own eyes is the only way to really understand, so I suggest that you click the link below to watch a video to see how exactly Calorease works. I watched the video before starting the program and the video answered many of my questions. Go ahead Click here to watch this video to see how Calorease works.

Calorease comes in convenient blister pouches. each pouch contains\ two pills equal to one service, again taken one hour before to one hour after a caloric intake meal. The 90 tablet pouches run $29.00 Though for each of my readers you are able to save 50% off the cost of their 90 tablet pack!! Everybody likes 50% off!!  Just visit Calorease and you will only pay $14.00 for a 90 tablet pack!  The Code for this special offer is 4MOMS.

This I learned directly from Calorease ~”Science has found that fiber can bind with dietary fat and prevent fat from being digested. But since most fibers bind fat at a 1:1 ratio, you would have to consume unrealistic amounts of ordinary fiber to gain any benefit—until now. The unique, patented fiber in Calorease (FBCx) binds up to 9 times its weight in dietary fat, reducing up to 15,000 calories per month from a normal diet.” ~

~My Story~

I thought that if I decided to do this, it would be a waste of time, I would spend hours on the toilet and would still end up with the same weight.  I WAS WRONG!  I have had none NO unexpected rushed trips to the bathroom.  No lose stool, I had no problems eating ice-cream and not getting sick. Calorease having No Stimulant makes all the difference!!  I have learned that if I want this to work I had to pay attention to my food intake, try to cut the snacks, ice-cream and really try to let this product help me.  Guess what, it has!! I really feel I have lost a few pounds and there are more to come.  We started in the slow lane and now I am feeling better about food choices all together.  I told myself not to expect the weight to melt off, but any help, helps my back (Less weight on my back the better) and helps me.  I feel very uncomfortable being larger.  I was not expecting to look like I did seven years ago, but for my self-esteem, loosing a little weight goes a long way!  I plan to keep working this program for a few more pounds that I would like to lose before going back to just watching the caloric intake. I will continue to update you on my weight

It was a great pleasure to work with Momsmeet and Calorease on this program.  Please know that I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meets program,MayMediaGroupLLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a MomsMeets blogger,I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC. or the manufacturer of the product.

I hope you have enjoyed my Honest review of Calorease.  May it help you accomplish your weight loss goals!!

Jenn 🙂
