Healthy Eating Using Creative Resources…like Activz!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Activz DID provide me with this product to review at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

So, are you tired of hearing me say this yet? “These days we’re trying to eat a bit healthier at our home!” Well…I don’t know how else to phrase it…but we are! 

Since this is a “newer” journey for both of us together, I’ve been experimenting with a lot of recipes and products that I’ve never tried before! So when Brooke from Activz contacted me to see if I wanted to review an Activz product, I had to first stop and to to their website (which you can do by CLICKING HERE) and see what on earth she was talking about. I’d never heard of Activz before, and WOW! How did I miss this?!


When you discover Activz, you’ll discover products such as vitamins and supplements, fruit powders, vegetable powders, grass powders, protein shakes, silver, greens, coconut water powder and more!

Especially since I now have all of that china in my own possession, I have remembered to NOT place it in the microwave. After it’s used, I wash it. It’s stored in my china cabinet. And that’s about it as far as care is concerned.

So when Tate from Keen & Co. contacted me about doing a post and sharing an info-graphic on how to care for your tableware, I was a bit confused at first. HOW to CARE for tableware? I mean, how many ways are there to care for tableware?

Turns out, there are a LOT. And now is the perfect time to learn about them, right before all the Christmas dinner parties begin! So, without further ado, let’s let Tate school us all!
