Genesis- Juice Box Review and Giveaway

I, like many parents are checking food and drink labels all the time.  We are trying to remove high fructose corn syrup and every day I keep getting frustrated!  ANY ONE WITH ME??  It's everywhere even when you least expect it!  A few months ago my mother in law was visiting and even noticed the bread I bought had it.  :(  I never even checked bread!  Also, I really love ketchup and I have yet to find a Ketchup that I like that does not have it?  Can anyone recommend one?  


Juice is a big area where I am checking labels, the hard fact is many juices have pictures that catch my daughters attention and she wants that type of juice.  Sadly, I look at the label and have to tell her we can't buy that kind of juice.  Genesis Juice has created a great juice that even has Power Ranger characters to interest the kids.  :)  It has no High Fructose Corn Syrup, no preservatives, no added colors, 50% less sugar then most other juices, and it has some great vitamins in it.  If you are like me then you were like awesome, but will it taste good and will my kids drink it?  I can proudly say that they do taste GREAT!  With two great flavors, Blueberry Power Blast and Berry Power Blast I figured my kids would hopefully enjoy one of the flavors.  So happy to find out they love them both!  I had to give them a taste and see what I thought, and to my surprise for having 50% less sugar and no High Fructose Corn Syrup they were still very tasty and very sweet.  :)

I try to give my kids very limited amounts of processed food. I know to check everything. I look for the no corn syrup label since the brands that don't use it brag about it!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
