New Product Review – Blissfully Better Chocolate

As far as I’m concerned, there is no BAD time for a piece of chocolate. Wouldn’t you agree?

I don’t, however, indulge very often, because chocolate isn’t all that great for you. Now, I’m not a healthy example for the masses, but I DO try to eat good things, and if I “indulge” in the bad ones, I make sure it doesn’t happen all that often.

But, thankfully, I’ve been introduced to something sweet that doesn’t fit the usual mold! It’s called Blissfully Better Chocolate.

The Soup’s On – with Boulder Organic Foods! GIVEAWAY INCLUDED!

I’ve been talking about what I call “soup weather” here on the blog – have you noticed? This time of the year is when I really adore a bowl of hot soup! There’s something so comforting and happy about soup, don’t you think? 

So when Lainie from Boulder Foods informed me that January was National Soup Month, it all made sense! Now, I had not previously heard of Boulder Foods until Laine contacted me, but she shared all about their certified organic, gluten-free and Non-GMO soup’s tasty line-up:

  • Butternut Squash with Sage
  • Roasted Tomato Basil
  • Red Lentil Dahl
  • Garden Minestrone
  • Cuban Black Bean
  • Green Chile Corn Chowder
  • Potato Leek
  • Golden Quinoa and Kale
  • Chicken Quinoa & Kale
  • Chicken Vegetable Chili

Are you hungry yet?!

Now, I must admit, I was a bit hesitant with these soups at first. I mean, really, how GOOD could soups found in the refrigerated deli section actually BE?

Well, Boulder has proved my hesitancy completely unnecessary! 

Boulder Organic Foods was founded in 2006 by Kate Brown, who had a vision to craft “oh my gosh!” good food using garden-fresh ingredients. Boulder Organic soups are made in small batches and are certified organic, certified gluten-free and non-GMO verified. They are sold in the deli refrigerated section at grocers nationwide – please check the locator for a retailer near you!

I went by my local Fresh Market to see what Boulder soups they had to offer, and came home with a Roasted Tomato Basil and a Garden Minestrone – YUMMY! I decided to pair them up with a couple slices of cornbread.

NestFresh Eggs Giveaway!

We all like our specific food brands, don’t we? I know there are certain food items that I buy from a specific store or I only purchase a specific brand of, because I like the taste or the price or the packaging. And one of the things that I’m particular about when it comes to purchasing is definitely eggs. Because, you know what? I really can tell a difference in taste in organic eggs verses regular eggs. That’s some thing that I don’t like to compromise on!

And that’s one reason why I’m so excited about today’s post and a special giveaway! Check it out!
