My Review:
This time of year always seems to wreak havoc on my family and I. We're often sick week after week with some new bug and since there's four kids and two adults in the house by the time one sickness is on it's way out we've caught something else. I'm also currently in the middle of packing to move in a couple of weeks so my eating habits are a bit abnormal to say the least. My stomach hasn't been too happy with those abnormal eating habits.

Flora Udo's Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend has been a lifesaver! I've been so busy packing that I often forget to eat and my go to meal has become crackers, chips and unfortunately fast food if I'm running errands. Because of these bad eating habits I've developed a lot of  heartburn, gas, bloating, and indigestion. Since taking Flora Udo's Choice® Adult Enzyme Blend my stomach issues have improved 10 fold and I will definitely continue to take this because even when my eating habits improve I still have some heartburn, gas, bloating, and indigestion that I'd love to get under control.

Flora Udo's Choice® Super 8 Hi-Potency Probiotic are simply amazing! My husband recently began taking these and is amazed at how well they work. He has always suffered from stomach issues and now that he has a very stressful job his stomach issues have gotten out of control. He's been taking Flora Udo's Choice® Super 8 Hi-Potency Probiotics for about 8 days now and he says his stomach has never felt better. I've even begun taking it since my husband has been so thrilled with how well it's worked for him and while I'm only a few days into it I can honestly say I feel like it's doing an amazing job. My evening bloating is a thing of the past and even my husband has asked if I lost weight, which I haven't. My stomach just looks flatter because I'm not extremely bloated after dinner. If you're looking for a powerful and amazing probiotic, then this is it! 

Flora Udo's Choice® Green Blend is the perfect way to stay healthy! Recently my entire family has come down with a cold, and possibly some other bug. They've been sick on and off for almost a month now and while I got the cold about 2 weeks in I've yet to get the second bug and I believe it's due to starting Flora Udo's Choice® Green Blend. As a mom of 4 I get very little sleep and have felt extremely sluggish over the past few months especially with the kids being under the weather. I've been taking Flora Udo's Choice® Green Blend for almost 2 weeks and love how healthy and energized it has made me feel. I actually feel motivated to get up and get moving which I absolutely love! Flora Udo's Choice® Green Blend has given me back my energy and I highly recommend it!

All of these products from Flora are amazing I know you'll love them just as much as I do!

About IHOP®
Since 1958, IHOP® has been the place where people connect over breakfast, enjoy study breaks, grab a bite before or after sporting events, and so much more. And no matter what menu items they order, there’s one ingredient that’s always constant — a smile. We’ve seen millions of smiles over the years in our restaurants, and now shared in photos across our social properties. In fact, smiles are so much a part of our culture that we changed our logo to include one.

This is just one of the many fun and exciting changes you can expect from IHOP®. Because we know the shortest distance between two people is a smile.


GET A FREE SHORT STACK OF PANCAKES ON IHOP® NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY®

On Tuesday, March 7, the Breakfast Brand Teams Up with Notable Children’s Charities to Make More Moments for Kids and Families Along with a Goal of Raising $3.5 Million for Thousands of Local Hospitals

IHOP® Restaurants announced the kick off of its 12th annual National Pancake Day® campaign – and for one day, the humble, delicious pancake will serve a much bigger purpose.

In return, guests are asked to help make a difference by leaving a donation of any size on-check or in-restaurant with all funds going to the charity partners’ local hospital affiliate.

The most anticipated Breakfastarian event of the year, IHOP National Pancake Day is the brand’s signature day of giving and underscores its longstanding commitment to helping families create more moments together. This year, IHOP expects to serve a record-breaking five million pancakes in a single day.

Now through March 7, guests visiting any IHOP restaurant in the U.S. can help reach the ambitious $3.5 million goal by purchasing a “Wall Icon” to publicly pledge support or donate on check.

Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth with Heavenly Organics Honey and Honey Patties!


Heavenly Organics was founded in 2005.

However, our story began over 25 years earlier,
when Amit Hooda was a young boy growing up around conflict during the Punjab Insurgency. The experience of living near a conflict zone stayed with him.
   
Amit’s family home in the countryside of Northern India was steeped in vibrant culture, ancient traditions and vast wilderness.

Amit had a pet cow, a buffalo and a great organic garden.

He was taught to live a purist life from his altruistic mother and renowned agronomist father, Dr. I.S. Hooda.

Amit loved living off of the land and had a great respect for all living things.  He often contemplated how he could help people living in isolated and conflict areas of the world and discussed these ideas with his father.
   
For over 35 years, Dr. I.S. Hooda had cultivated relationships with small farmers to help preserve traditional and sustainable organic farming methods while helping them earn a living from selling their delicious organic goods.

In the untouched forests of India live wild beehives that contain the most pure and delicious honey varietals known to humankind.

Amit’s father was an integral influence in developing a sustainable, bee-friendly and smoke-free method of extracting the honey and worked with local honey harvesters to teach them this method. 
Amit eventually decided to pursue a higher education in the United States.  His parents encouraged him to attend the Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa to continue his studies and spiritual growth (MUM is consciousness-based education, where all students practice the Transcendental Meditation method and study traditional academic programs).  While attending school and studying Computer Science, Amit and his father continued talking about how they could help eliminate conflict in areas of Northern and Central India and parts of the Himalayas, where conflict was still present. 

They came up with the premise that the only way to eliminate conflict is to provide the people in these areas with ethical job opportunities.

The duo saw the potential in combining this idea with Amit’s father’s organic agriculture projects, and the idea of Heavenly Organics was born.

In 2004, Amit and his father made it official by building worker-owned cooperatives to foster long-term trade partnerships that mutually benefit both farmers and consumers.

Today, Heavenly Organics supports nearly 600 family farmers
and produces 100% Organic Raw Honey, Chocolate Honey Patties and 100% Organic Whole Cane Sugar.

This work helps displaced people find markets to sell their goods and ensures them a reliable income.  Without it, their means of livelihood would be very limited.  For the past decade, Heavenly Organics has been leading the authentic fair trade movement and creating big change.  Our goal is to increase the number of farmers we work with to 5,000 in the next five years and to extend this business model into other countries to help create long-lasting sustainable economies in other isolated areas and conflict zones.  Our company was built on the belief that profits can create peace, and we will continue to expand on Dr. I.S. Hooda’s early visions of respecting the earth, animals, humankind, and all who contribute to the circle of life.


Our bees live outside of the box in naturally occurring, wild beehives that originate from wildflower fields of the Gangotri, Jammu and Kashmir regions of the Himalayan Mountains. This delicious honey opens your senses to a multitude of exotic flowers as it lingers on the palate. White in color, velvety in texture with a smooth, sweet taste. Perfect for anything you use honey for like spreading on fresh baked breads, or just eating by the spoonful.


These wild beehives are located in the secluded valleys of the Jammu region of the Himalayan Mountains. Acacia honey is prized for its delicate fruity taste and mild tangy finish. This rare honey is perfect for anything you use honey for like drizzling on fruit and yogurt and in herbal and green teas.


This honey originates from bees pollinating the blooming Neem flowers in the pristine forests of Central India. The Neem tree has been used for medicinal remedies for centuries and is known for its antibacterial and digestive health properties. This dark, robust and rare honey is perfect for anything you use honey for like drizzling on warm cereals and pancakes. Also makes a wonderful baste for fish and meat.


Our Chocolate Honey Patties have a dark chocolate shell made from 100% cocoa that is filled with 100% organic raw white honey blended with natural ginger extract. These decadent, bite-sized treats not only taste amazing, but dark chocolate and raw honey both offer minerals and immunity-boosting antioxidants.

My Review:
I have a huge sweet tooth and always have but now as an adult I've become somewhat concerned about all the sugar that I consume on a daily basis. I've recently been trying to cut out processed sugar from my diet but still crave sweets like none other. Heavenly Organics Honey and Honey Patties are the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth the healthy way. 

Heavenly Organics Honey is absolutely amazing and tastes like a gourmet treat! I love that Heavenly Organics honey is 100% Organic and Raw. Their 100% Organic Raw White Honey, Acacia Honey and Neem Honey is heavenly which I suppose may be where they came up with the name Heavenly Organics. Each honey has amazing flavor and is perfect for adding to yogurts, cereal, smoothies and so much more. I was recently blown away at the amount of sugar in my favorite yogurt and have since begun buying plain Greek yogurt and adding some Heavenly Organics honey into my plain yogurt for a simply delicious treat. Adding honey to my everyday foods instead of processed sugar has seemed to increase my energy level and I honestly love the flavors that the honey adds.

Heavenly Organics Honey Patties are oh so delicious and make the perfect treat any time of day! I love eating a little treat after I get the kiddos to bed but normally I go overboard. With Heavenly Organics Honey Patties I found them to be incredibly rich and filling. The flavors are amazing and they satisfy my sweet tooth without the guilt. Heavenly Organics Peanut Chocolate Honey Patties are my absolute favorite and I love that I can have a sweet treat anytime of day without the guilt!

Heavenly Organics Honey and Honey Patties are the perfect way to kick processed sugar to the curb!

DIY Upcycled Piggy Bank for Kids from Chick-fil-A Soup Containers! #chickfilamomsDIY

Did you know Chick-fil-A serves soup?! 

I didn't know until recently while searching their menu for something my daughter could easily eat since she just got braces. We ordered her some Chicken Tortilla Soup and she absolutely loved it. My daughter is 9 and is big time into crafts and upcycling everyday items so she was excited to upcycle her cute soup container from Chick-fil-A. My local Chick-fil-A actually had 2 different soups to offer so you could get either one for this upcycling project.


Our hearty chicken tortilla soup features shredded boneless breast of chicken, navy, northern, and black beans in a white creamy base with a perfect blend of vegetables and spices to heat up your dining experience. Topped off with seasoned corn tortilla strips. Seasonal item only.


Shredded Chick-fil-A® chicken breast, chopped carrots and celery with egg noodles in a hearty broth. Served with Saltine crackers. (Served only as a seasonal item at many Chick-fil-A Mall Restaurants.)

DIY Upcycled Piggy Bank for Kids from Chick-fil-A Soup Containers! 


My daughter quickly got the idea to upcycle her soup container into a piggy bank to save money for her next trip to the toy store. And like most little girls would she chose a pretty pink paint to paint her bank. We then cut a slit in the top large enough to insert all size coins as well as dollar bills and used some glitter glue to fancy up the lid a bit.


The finished project turned out pretty well! 

As a mom of 4 I love upcycling because it turns something that would normally be tossed out into something useful and also turns it into something special that kids will cherish. Another great thing about upcycling is it keeps kiddos busy creating as well as helps up to spend some real quality time together. My daughter has already begun using her new bank and has it proudly displayed on her dresser.

A private company, JSSI has been in the footwear business for over 80 years, designing and distributing footwear. Ermerils Footwear is being distributed by S4 LLC, a JSSI related company.

Emeril’s shoes feature multiple innovations that are specifically tailored to the restaurant environment. Knowing that duty shoes need to stand up to the tough environment that culinary professionals face, Emeril worked with JSSI’s creative and engineering teams to integrate antimicrobial and water repellent technologies into the material of the shoe upper itself, while also introducing a memory foam insole for enhanced comfort. Each shoe also includes an Emeril-inspired slip-resistant outsole to provide reliable traction on any surface, an essential consideration in busy kitchens. Beyond the functional innovations, the shoes are designed to meet the evolving tastes of culinary professionals, offering both style and substance

My Review:
Emeril Lagasse Footwear Line is perfect for those in the restaurant industry! Emeril’s shoes feature multiple innovations that are specifically tailored to the restaurant environment such as their slip and stain resistance as well as their superior comfort. Many people in the restaurant industry are on their feet for most of the day so having a shoe that is comfortable is an absolute must. I remember back in the day when I worked at a restaurant and even though I was much younger in those days my feet would ache at the end of the day. I also remember in culinary school spilling stuff on my shoes extremely often so I love that these shoes are stain resistant. Another terrific thing about these shoes is that they're extremely fashionable and can even be worn when not at work. 

Emeril Lagasse Footwear Line is a terrific solution to all those in the restaurant industry seeking a practical yet stylish shoe to wear! Even if you're not in the restaurant industry these shoes would still look and feel amazing on your feet. I know as a mom of 4 I could definitely use a shoe that offers slip and stain resistance as well as comfort and style!
