#HolidayGiftGuide 2015

The holidays are near and it's that special time of year to find the perfect gift for your loved one!

If you want your product reviewed please contact me  Next to Halloween Christmas is my favorite time of year from the first beautiful snowfall, the smell of pine trees, sipping on hot chocolate to keep warm on a cold winters night, the delicious smell of cookies baking in the oven, eggnog and the joy on my loved ones faces on Christmas morning as we all spend time together opening our gifts. 
It isn't the gifts that is the most important thing it's the time spent together, we all get together for a big breakfast on Christmas morning and cook together as a family.

Here are a few things that my family has been hinting at lately for the  upcoming holiday season. 
For the baker:

Practical Paleo cookbook because well who doesn't love to cook!?

Apple Picking at Narrow Lane Orchard

My favorite past time has to be going apple picking with my family there was something about it that was just so exciting from the beautiful Fall colored leaves, the big bright orange pumpkins in the patch or the delicious sweet smell of the apples on their trees. 
There's something about Fall that I love the crisp air nipping at my nose, the way the leaves crunch beneath your feet as you walk, candy apples, apple cider, pumpkins I love it all its the most beautiful time of year when the leaves change colors it makes everything colorful and full of life. 
And how could I forget the apple cider after a long day at the orchard it was like the icing on the cake so crisp, sweet and delicious! 
Whether served hot or cold it's still a tasty treat! 
Ever since I was a kid my favorite fruit was apples.

The way they crunched when you took a bite, the way they made apple pies taste so sweet and delicious.
Tucked away in north Kingstown Rhode Island is Narrow Lane apple orchard where yo…

Homemade zucchini lasagna with Kite-Hill ricotta cheese

Kite-Hill started off with a dream for plant based food that would have all of the features that we rapture in the prime artisan dairy cheeses.
Kite-Hill products are for all food lovers from living a plant based diet or  seeking a more healthier lifestyle.
Kite-Hill offers more than just their artisanal almond milk products after all they are known for their  impeccable taste being a dairy free product. Their products are made with real simple ingredients  from an array of nut milk yogurts, cream cheese style spreads, entrees, artisanal delicacies and desserts.  With the crisp Fall weather here I've been not only in the mood to cook wholesome meals but have been craving lasagna lately and being that I've recently made changes within my diet it's been hard to say the least but  with a little research on Pinterest it hit me why not make lasagna with zucchini instead of lasagna noodles.
So as I was walking around WholeFoods I wandered into the cheese aisle and came across K…

It all began with Pete Maldonado when he realized that his favorite snack sticks were anything but healthy they were filled with preservatives as well as additives. He wanted something more cleaner to say the least but turned up empty handed.

Chomps snack sticks are a great source of protein especially after a workout.

Egg Muffin Cups recipe

I have the perfect recipe for you that will save you time for those mornings that your in a rush and don't have time for a sit down meal whether your off to work, dropping the kids off at school, or headed to the gym.

Wild Zora meat and veggie bars review

Ever eat jerky and it feels like your chewing on rubber? 
Some jerky can be too salty, too hard to chew and made with nitrites, additives as well as added sugar.
It all began in 2011 when founder of Wild Zora company Zora and her family became interested in learning about gluten free, primal food and Paleo since they became wary of the snacks out on the market that were full of sugar as well as filled with grains.
They wanted a snack that was made with simple ingredients, healthy and delicious. 
Jerky snacks provided them with false hope being filled with nitrites, added sugars, msg and nitrates that were tough to chew and way too salty. 
When hunger approaches we want something that will provide us with lasting energy as well as nutritious and nothing in stores provided them with that.
Then in 2013 in the comfort of their own home they came up with their own. They always thought of vegetables and meat to be a complete meal so they began to dehydrate 100% grass fed beef from their lo…
