Review: Salba Chia Seeds

School has started for me and my daughter!   I think many of you know I am a teacher so getting back into a routine can have it's challenges for this mamma.  I also just found out that I have low iron so I am trying to find many new ways to increase my iron but also my energy levels.   Chia seeds is a great way to help increase energy without icky junk in your body.   

Healthy Back to School tips from Salba Chia:
·         Eat a nutritious breakfast every day. Studies show that breakfast eaters tend to have higher school attendance, less tardiness, overall higher test scores and better concentration, according to Try delicious breakfast ideas at
·         Pack rainbow-colored lunches: Cut up a mix of red, green, yellow, orange and purple fruits and veggies to dip into hummus mixed with chia seeds for an extra boost of nutrients.
·         Power up with a healthy snack before after-school activities: Make fiber-rich Salba Chia fruit smoothies or get ideas from other moms at

Kids aren’t the only ones who need to feel their best when school starts – their parents have to keep up with them! 

Here’s a little bit more about Salba Chia seeds:
·         Provide 3,400+ mg of Omega-3s (ALA) and 5,000+ mg of dietary fiber per serving
·         70% more vegetable protein than soybeans
·         200% more potassium than bananas
·         30% more antioxidants than blueberries
·         25% more fiber than flax seed
·         All-natural, gluten-free, non-GMO
·         **Unlike other chia seeds, Salba Chia is the only form of chia for which there are positive published clinical studies.

My Review:
I am a fan!   Yes, I truly am and these tiny seeds are so easy to hide in meals that my children have absolutely now clue that they are in their food!   So where have I been adding them:  smoothies, rice, veggies, oatmeal, and my favorite pancakes.   My kids love when I make my 3 ingredient pancakes (4 with the Chia) and adding the Chia seeds are a great boost for all of our health.  

Here is my pancake recipe:
In a blender add 2 bananas, 6 eggs, and roughly 2 cups of oatmeal and 2 tablespoons of the chia seeds.   Blend it up to the right consistency and put it on the pan.   My kids have no idea the chia seeds are in because everything blends so nice and their is not much of a taste.   My kids enjoy eating their pancakes with peanut butter and a little syrup drizzle.   YES, these are amazing an addicting.    

You should buy some today and starting finding ways to add them to your meals!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
