7 Workarounds for Dietary Restrictions

This is a sponsored post.

 

Are you struggling to lose weight before a big event? Have you recently been diagnosed with diabetes or celiac disease? If you’re facing a lifetime of dietary restrictions, don’t throw out the contents of your fridge just yet. Here are seven healthy swaps that you can make for junk foods and bad ingredients.

 

 

1. Macadamia Nut Oil

If you love the taste of butter but hate all the health hazards that come with it, switch to macadamia nut oil. It has a much better fat ratio and can be added to meats, veggies and stir fry dishes alike.

2. Almond Flour

If you’re avoiding gluten, this is the product for you. Almond flour is the organic, low-carb and all-natural substitute for white flour. It even offers a healthy serving of the good fatty acids!

Yay for Fall and Upcoming Holidays

 

I know my kids are not the only ones excited about the upcoming holidays! With Halloween just around the corner, all my kids talk about are the upcoming events and how they get to dress up. Halloween costume ideas have been floating around for months. It took a while, but my kids have finally decided on what they are going to dress up as.

 

My son has decided to be a pirate, while my daughter wants to be an angel…again! Chloe was an angel last year! I think she likes the dress that she wears, a white flower girl dress. This fancy dress doesn’t really have any other purpose than for dressing up. Last year we added wings and a halo to the white dress and she loved how she transformed into an angel. Last year my son was a Red Ninja.

Care for your Body Naturally with eBody from e-cloth

Product was given to me from e-cloth in order to post my honest opinion.

 

For years I have committed to using natural products in my home. Using products without chemicals has made me very aware when I am around certain fragrances. I wash my body and my face with naturally made products and I can tell when something has artificial scents and ingredients; I can feel them. Therefore, natural is always on my mind when looking for new products.

I was intrigued when I saw the eBody collection from e-cloth. Their micro-technology creates cleaning products that needs little to no soap, along with water. The eBody collection makes washing your face and getting out of the shower a soft and quick drying experience. There is nothing better than getting out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a soft towel!

 

Their Eye Cleansing Pad easily and gently removes eye make-up, including mascara. It eliminates excess oils and no expensive eye make-up removers are needed. To use, insert your index and middle fingers into one the the Pad’s pockets. Add a dab of gentle soap or face wash and with a little water, the micro-bubble technology will form a rich lather. With a gentle circular motion, wipe the Pad around the closed eye lid and surrounding eye area. Repeat on the other eye using the opposite Pad pocket. Rinse thoroughly after every use and hang dry.

Encourage Healthy Eating for Picky Eaters with Pick-Ease {+ a Giveaway} Ends 11/2

Product was given to me from Pick Ease in order to post my honest opinion.

 

I am so grateful that my kids are not that picky of eaters. There are certain things each of children won’t eat, but overall, they try most things. Pick-Ease was created with the idea of making eating time more enjoyable for kids.

Shaped like a “toothpick” Pick-Ease is a new utensil for young kids. Making food fun to pick up encourages kids to eat it, even if they are picky eaters. Pick-Ease comes in variety packs with different colors and designs on the handles.

 

Pick-Ease Make Mealtime Fun for Picky Eaters

 

Pick-Ease was created by Melissa, a mom to two young boys. Her second child became a picky eater so she was putting everything on toothpicks to get his attention. Her picky eater enjoyed eating the small food that was on the toothpicks. Melissa soon realized that other parents were doing the same thing. Pick-Ease was the solution for safe and fun eating.
