Tetley-Super-Herbal-Tea-Peach

Good morning loves. This is the time of year where there is a lot of rain and much cooler temperatures, which sometimes brings colds and flu and for me more drinking tea in any kind of form whether that is cold sweet tea, warm tea or in a cocktail. I am coming today quickly to remind and introduce to some 3 delicious ways to enjoy Tetley Super Herbal Tea Immunity.

Tetley-Tea-Orange-VitaminCSome facts about this tea since it is blended with orange and peach it has vitamin C, which helps with the normal function of the immune system, has antioxidants and fiber.

  1. I enjoyed the first time my tea as regular iced tea and I threw some peaches in it, however, Tetley has provided a great Sparkling Peach Tea recipe that is great anytime of the year.

Tetley-Tea-Super-Herbal

Sparking-Peach-Tea2. Hot tea for those times you want to curl up in a corner with a book and drink some hot tea. It may as well be tea that adds to your immune system instead of tea that does not add anything to your body. Favorite cup, one peach and orange tea bag, steeped for 5 minutes and enjoy.

Tetley-Super-Herbal-Tea3. The last is one of my favorite ways to escape after a long day of work. To help ease some of the stress, I make a cocktail (peach bourbon tea), prepare as you would prepare 1 cup of iced tea, add 2 parts of bourbon and add more sugar to taste.

Tetley Super Teas Voted #1 Beverage Product of the Year and I can see why after trying a member of the Immunity Tea family.

What is your favorite way to enjoy tea?


Tiff’s Treats: Warm Cookies Delivered To Your Door

Tiff’s Treats: Warm Cookies Delivered To Your Door

(Thanks to Tiff’s Treats and Atlanta Food & Lifestyle Bloggers Society for this opportunity. I have received these tasty cookies, gift card for additional cookies, and more for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion).

Tiff's-Treats-Delivered

I am not sure about you, but there have been several times in my life where I have had things delivered to loved ones and friends, but never has it been cookies at least not until recently. Tiff’s Treats is a brand that you can have delivered warm cookies delivered to your door and not just yours, but to your loved ones. Be on the lookout for one of these cars and if it is not coming to your house, I hope you know the neighbors who are about to get this delivery.

Sweets are one of my comfort foods. Some people want mac n cheese, fried chicken, chicken noodle soup, etc, but I want some yummy ooey gooey cookies and please please let it be chocolate chip. Those are my favorite unless you make it a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie then I would move that chocolate chip cookie out of the way:)

Tiff's-Treats-Warm-Cookies

I almost could not wait long enough to take pictures before I almost used my teeth to get into that ribbon and start munching. I was able to slow myself down and take my time to take the pictures, but believe you me I did not want to do so.

On this day, hubby was about to leave me for one of his many trips that month and I just wanted to sulk and have a pitty party, so what did I do? I had a warm cookie party. As soon as I took the pictures, I let him taste one before he left and I ate like four in a row and I was so grateful that it was an assorted bunch, so I had like one of each and then would sulk some and then repeat:).

Tiff's-Treats-Warm-Cookies-DeliveredA special surprise that was in the package was the tiffblitz which was vanilla ice cream blended with chunks of chocolate chip cookies and brownie bites. Topped with crumbled sugar cookies. So tasty.

Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Review

ozeri-veg-pic

Thank you Ozeri Instavac and US Family Guide. I received this product to review for my honest opinion. This post contains affiliate links. #ad

I have never used a food storage product due to seeing others reviews of them that were not so great, but with the need to eat better and be able to have some of the fresh fruit and vegetables last longer, I jumped at the chance to review Ozeri Instavac containers.

ozeri-veg-pic

I had purchased some veggies from my local Kroger and when I find that specially priced produce I am on it, but I forgot to use it quickly so what did I do? I used some of the veggies and then used the 3 cup size bowl and put it in the refrigerator.

So easy to use and all you have to do is push the air out and the airtight container does the rest. You put down the valve and then press the air out and as you do that it makes a cute noise (whistle) and then you can change the date to the day you put it in the refrigerator.

The Ozeri Instavac kit comes with 4 bowls and lids in different sizes. The sizes are 21 cups (5.0 Liters), 12.7 cups (3.0 Liters), 6.3 cups (1.5 Liters), and 3 cups (0.7 Liters). The lids have a dial on air valve, so you can set the date that you put your food in there so you know how long it’s been in fridge.

Ozeri-WebThe kit is BPA-free, stain-resistant, shatter-proof and as transparent as glass; Freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe; Satisfaction guaranteed.

What everyone wants to know is whether or not it worked? It did work! I went out of town for 4 days and still did not touch it for 3 additional days, so more than a week later the veggies were still good. Worth the purchase? Yes indeed,

Do you use a Food Storage Kit? If so, what kind and how well does it work? 

 

 


Perfect Bar is Perfect for You

Perfect Bar is Perfect for You

Disclaimer: I received this product for free from Moms Meet, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog and social media accounts. The opinions posted are my own. Compensation for this post was provided.

Perfect-bars-are-perfect

Perfect Bars create perfect vibes and who does not like that. Hubby and I have basically been working 2 jobs because let’s be honest having your own business is another job within itself. The perfect bars have come in handy for us. We have been using the bars as partial meals instead of stopping by a fast food restaurant and eating horribly we ate a bar or two and was satisfied.

They are gluten free, non-gmo, contains 20+ superfoods including kale which is a great way to get some veggies into the kiddos bellies without them knowing it.  Each bar is packed with up to 17g (5g in minis) of whole food protein (no whey or soy) to keep you satisfied throughout the day. The size of the minis are perfect for snacking on-the-go, while traveling and especially for every day snacks in lunchboxes.

Perfect Bars were a big hit in my household and the group. They are all very flavorful and delicious and everyone seemed to have found a favorite. Since, I am writing this post, I will share my favorite: probably because I love chocolate was the Dark chocolate chip and peanut butter and my least favorite was the blueberry cashew.

The full perfect bars kept me full for a good couple of hours and actually I am used to eating every couple of hours and there have been times that I forgot to eat, so these would be great as a meal replacement.

What would you say is your perfect healthy on-the-go snack?


Food Cooked with Love Zeal Modern Eatery

Zeal-modern-eatery

According to the Oxford Dictionary, one of the synonyms for zeal is love and that is what I tasted in every bite while dining at Zeal Modern Eatery in East Cobb.

Any time I get a chance to go to East Cobb in Marietta I jump on it and I am never disappointed. I was able to visit one of my favorite areas thanks to Culinary Local. Prior to today I had not heard of Zeal Modern Eatery and was kind of disappointed that I had not heard of it this eatery.

This was a special night of beer and bar bites pairings with the dynamic duo Zeal Modern Eatery and Gate City Beer.

5 courses and 5 chances to love or hate the pairings created by Chef Kristian, co-founder Scott Sawant and Gate City Beer. Did I love or hate these pairing? Stay tuned to find out…

1st course:

Zeal-modern-mahi-mahi

20 Grand Cream Ale with Smoky Mahi Mahi Taco

 

2nd course:

zeal-modern-eatery-beef

1864 IPA with Spicy Beef Tenderloin Monchow Soup

3rd course:

zeal-modern-eatery-wahoo

Pitt Hopkins Pale Ale with East Coast Wahoo w/roasted corn, baby kale, andouille sausage, and shoestring potatoes

4th course:

zeal-modern-eatery-rib

OTP IPA with Caribbean Jerk Barbeque Rib

5th course:

zeal-modern-dessert

Terminus Porter with Truffle Cheesecake Fritter

Like I mentioned before, I am not disappointed when I come to the East Cobb area and I certainly was not today either.

My vote for the best combo was the Wahoo and Pitt Hopkins Pale Ale. I LOVED IT!! and yes I wanted more of it. With every bite, I could taste the love in every bite.

Zeal Modern Eatery stays busy. Even after the pairing event, plenty of, it seemed regulars, just hung out with Scott and other staff having a grand time. To be honest, I almost felt some type of way because at first I kind of felt ignored, but after a while the atmosphere seemed to have changed and I felt more at ease. I told one of my friends that I will have to make sure to come back with some of my friends and family to check out the wonderful tasting food and to share in some of the love I felt while eating it.

zeal7

You can have a grand time as well and apparently, on the regular they have live music playing, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Check them out here (www.zealrestaurant.com) and see their other special events like half off wine bottles on Wednesday. Drink and eat up!!

Zerowater-Pitcher

Hydrating is important and drinking more water is part of that, as I have mentioned in my last post, there are different ways to achieve that, but the most common way is just good old water, whether it is filtered or not, flavored or not, etc.

Usually my go to water is seltzer water, but at times costs a lot of money especially to get the kind without sodium, sweetener or other additives/preservatives. There have been times during a visit to my local, Home Depot, where I would see signs about testing your water and I was always interested and intriqued.

I was given the chance to try Zero Water and this was what I was looking for. The opportunity to check my water to see if there is actually a difference from filtered and non filtered water.

Zerowater-tap-results

So, I dived right in and opened the Zero Water pitcher box, which included a TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) Tester and so I turned on the water and put some in one of my favorite glasses and then put the TDS tester in the glass. The results were 047, so I had to see what the number was filtered……

Zerowater-filtered

Different glass, and poured some water from the ZeroWater pitcher (filtered) and once again put the TDS Tester in glass and the results were (drum roll please): 001. Different from the sink and it is enough for me to take notice.

About ZeroWater

  • Only Filter Pitcher Certified by NSF to Reduce both Lead and Chromium
  • 5-Stage Filtration removes 99.6% of Dissolved Solids
  • BPA Free
  • One-handed “push to dispense” spout to fill any bottle or cup
  • TDS meter that provides a digital reading so you know when it is time to change your filter

This product is a good way to provide cleaner hydration to your families. To get your own Zerowater Pitcher ⇒ Cleaner Water for less than $35.00 for the pitcher and replacement filters can be found here ⇒ Need More Filters.

Have you tested the results of the filtered water you had recently?

hydration-smoothie

It is truly official this year has been the worse for heat, humidity and just plain energy draining. Maybe I am just spoiled coming from the North, but it is just sometimes just too darn hot to do anything and what I have found is that water and more water is the key to surviving in this type of heat.

Keeping yourself hydrated is one of the most important things to do if you are finding yourself doing a lot of outdoor activities, working out and at times just standing out in the heat. To help keep me hydrated in particular after working a full time job and a side gig until we get up some more faithful staff, I have found myself needing more help than just regular water. I am good for wanting something sweet instead of water which of course is the best for you, but hey if you are like me and want something other than water try the Hydration Smoothies New At Smoothie King to replenish yourself after sweating in the Georgia sun.

I had the pleasure of trying the Dragon Fruit and it was totally delicious. I could not get enough of it. I had the 32oz and it was more than enough for me. I had it as a quick pick me up and you will find that the dragon fruit according to www.smoothieking.com, it has 6 grams of fiber. Some of the ingredients were: mangos, stevia, coconut water, dragon fruit of course and juice blends. What I love about these the most are that there is no artificial sweeteners or sugars added.

Never fear, if you do not like dragon fruit, try one of the other members of the hydration line: Watermelon Hybiscus and Lemon Green Tea.

Have you tried the new hydration smoothie line? Which one(s) are you looking forward to trying?

Ooops almost forgot, here is the recipe:

At-Home Dragon Fruit Hydration Smoothie Recipe

  • Pitaya Plus Smoothie Pack 1 Pack
    • “Pitaya” is another word for dragon fruit; these are organic and frozen dragon fruit cubes that can be found at Whole Foods.
  • Mango                           ½ Cup, Diced
  • Coconut Water               ½ Cup
  • Papaya Juice                 1/3 Cup
  • Ice 1 ½ Cups

Place all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
