prAna

As a busy mama I love stylish but functional clothing I can move in. It’s no fun wearing constricting clothes that don’t breath while your with your toddler at activities like gymnastics and mommy and me.

Thanks to prAna sustainable clothing I found good, breathable clothes that are stylish AND good for the environment.

prAna creates versatile, stylish, and sustainable clothing and accessories that you can wear during every activity, every adventure, every day. How do they know? Because they base their designs on their own experiences. You see they’re more than makers, they’re doers—yogis, climbers, and world travelers—and they use their knowledge to make clothes that look good and play hard. They like to focus on the details, and aren’t afraid to go bold when it comes to colors and whimsical patterns. They love to combine classic style with modern materials, ever mindful of where and how their creations are made.

I put prAna to the test and picked out two items.

I picked the Deedra Sweater Tunic and paired it with these tights and these shoes.The Deedra Sweater Tunic is a mid-weight knit woven from an organic cotton blend. Design features include a V-neck, mixed knit pattern styling, dropped hem tail, and side vents for a relaxed fit. My 2nd item was the Caraway Tights with this shirt and these sneakers.The Caraway Tight is a performance tight with moisture wicking properties. These high-rise compression pants are designed with flatlock construction and a triangle gusset for added durability. Complete with wide waistband, internal drawcord, and hidden mesh pocket.Both pieces were comfortable yet stylish. I love the rich colors and breathable cotton. Here are some more fun looks by prAna.

Lundberg Grounded Snacks

Eating schnitzel in our home is a staple. So when I was asked to review Lundberg Grounded Snacks Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips, I knew I wanted to use it as my breading on our favorite schnitzel recipe.

To decide on our favorite, we sampled all the flavors one afternoon.

Our favorite flavors were Ancho Chile (smoky and mildly spicy with a bit of sweetness) and Aged White Cheddar (creamy white cheddar with a hint of garlic). Hubby came home and said he liked Pink Himalayan Salt (lightly salted to highlight the subtle nutty grain flavors). I stuck with hubby’s favorite and followed my schnitzel recipe. I put half a bag of Lundberg’s Grounded Snacks Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips in a bag and mashed it with a bottle of wine. I coated both sides of the chicken and cooked it for 4 minutes.I flipped it over and cooked it for another 3 minutes.My plan worked! My schnitzel recipe was even better with this new and improved breading technique.

Lundberg’s Grounded Snacks Red Rice & Quinoa Tortilla Chips are USDA Certified Organic, whole grain, gluten free, allergen free, Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, and kosher. I served it with broccoli and cauliflower mash. I love Lundberg snacks for many reasons, but what I really like is that they are dedicated to remaining a family-owned, independent company committed to farming practices that fuel a healthier planet.

They are passionate about taking the organic grains they grow and pairing them with the most unique and flavorful organic spices from around the world.

The Grounded Snacks made with Available in 5 different flavors; Cinnamon Sugar, Ancho Chile, French Onion, Aged White Cheddar, and Pink Himalayan Salt.Which flavor sounds the best? Please comment below.

Sea-Band Mama

Do you suffer from travel sickness? Morning sickness? Or other types of nausea?

Then check out Sea-Band Mama!Sea-Band Mama is recommend and used by midwives and pregnant women around the world as a natural and effective relief for morning sickness. Sea-Band Mama bands are a knitted elasticated wrist band, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. The bands can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous.

Having a quick, easy and safe relief is a great way for mamas and mamas-to-be to still go about their day and get the instant relief that they need.

While pregnancy is a magical and beautiful time in a women’s life, it can also be hard on your body. From morning sickness to exhaustion my body was working hard to make sure my baby was getting what it needed. Unfortunately throughout both pregnancies I was nauseous most of the time. In fact, morning sickness effects around 50% of pregnant women at some point during their pregnancy.

 See more maternity pictures here and here.

I wish I had known about Sea-Band Mama products when I was pregnant.

Personally, I love the soothing Sea-Band Mama Ginger Lozenges that offer a calming way to soothe my nausea during my menstrual cycle. I also really like the bands during road trips and while driving windy roads.

To help my mama readers out, I am having a Sea-Band Mama set giveaway! 

The set includes:

Sea-Band Mama acupressure wrist bands: Sea-Band is a knitted elasticated wrist band, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. The bands can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. Scientific studies have proved that one of the most effective drug-free treatments is Acupressure on the P6 (Nei- Kuan) point between the two central tendons near the wrist. 

Sea-Band Mama Ginger Lozenges with Folic Acid: Completely free from artificial colors and flavors, Sea-Band Mama!

Foodstirs

My family and I love a good subscription box! We’ve tried science experiments with Kiwi Crate, yummy and fun snacks with Graze, and really cool jewelry with Rocksbox. Our newest favorite subscription box is Foodstirs.

Foodstirs is a kid friendly baking subscription box with fair trade ingredients, real sugar cane, chemical free colors, and organic.

You can pick from 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscription options. They come in these cute blue boxes and you only need a few staples from home to complete your recipe.  Our first box was a Strawberry Lemonade Shortcake Kit. Our most recent box was a Campfire S’mores Brownie Cupcake Kit.They didn’t turn out the prettiest, but Sarah and her friend Ella had so much fun making them.

Even though I bake with my kiddos often, getting a package in the mail is just so much fun!  

Do you like subscription boxes? Which one is your favorite?

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I’m just mom to two kiddos who likes sharing fun things with my readers.

Arctic Zero

To celebrate the first day of summer, my sweet friends at Arctic Zero sent over their Fit Frozen Desserts. We celebrated the longest day of the year with an ice cream party and water play.   ARCTIC ZERO Fit Frozen Desserts Pints are the perfect zero-guilt sweet treats for moms who care about clean ingredients. Each crave-worthy, low-calorie, lactose free pint is made with hormone-free whey protein and sweetened naturally with monk fruit, making it low in sugar. We sampled Cookie Shake, Cherry Chocolate Chip, Cake Batter, Salted Caramel, Rocky Road Trip and Peanut Butter Swirl. For the perfect creamy texture we let them thaw out for 15 minutes before digging in. Both kids and adults came back for seconds. 

We had so much fun! The ice cream was a delicious treat on this hot day and the slip and slide brought back such fun memories!

Happy summer, friends!

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion

Ever feel like this?

Unfortunately I do. Between my constant reach for more coffee and feeling sluggish through out the day I knew I needed to do something. I started small. I wake up, pop a NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion and drink tons of water. Only after I have taken my daughter to school I make a cup of coffee and drink water the rest of the day.

I love this product so much I even brought it to Jacob’s mommy and me class.

  During snack time I told them all the great benefits like, NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion has been specially formulated using three clinically tested probiotic strains to support women’s health through every stage of life. 

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion features L. rhamnosus HN001 and L. acidophilus La- 14 which have been shown to colonize the vaginal tract and help to maintain healthy vaginal pH when taken orally.

I even also shared that both the B. lactis HN019 and HN001 strains may help to support healthy immune system function in pregnant and nursing women. These mamas were super happy!HN019 also supports GI regularity and reduces occasional gas and bloating.

These specialized strains also support healthy, balanced immune system function in women of all ages.

NOW is one of very few supplement companies that is using technology to genetically verify their probiotics. They are using DNA- ngerprinting technology to guarantee the identity, potency, and purity of the bacterial strains used in their probiotic products, as well as help identify potential bacterial contaminants prior to production.

The Women’s Probiotic has 20 billion Colony-Forming Units (CFU) and has a guaranteed potency.

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.

PACT Organic clothing

As a busy mama to two kiddos I’m always running around town. Last week I got to try my PACT Organic Clothing bundle and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you all about it.

I put my leggings, camisole and hoodie to the test. I went from taking my daughter to school on a chilly morning,    to a warmer Mommy and Me with my son,

to ballet with both kiddos,

and finally at home with the family.

After 10 hours of wearing the same outfit my PACT Organic clothes were still comfortable, soft and didn’t stretch out. I call that a win-win!

The hoodie was my favorite piece. The stripes were flattering, the hood was not to constricting and it had a thumb hook. Love it!

Not only does PACT Organic make super soft cotton clothing that is better for people, but it’s also better for our planet. PACT Organic uses organic farming practices that don’t pollute the soil or water while partnering with organizations that protect the well-being of the people who make the clothes.

Did you know?

Organic cotton uses 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe because they are not exposed to toxic chemicals.

My Pact Organic clothing bundle was so soft and comfortable! I want you guys to try it too. Click here or use my unique code: ChitChat25 and save 25% off your total!
