Naturally Fresh Deoderant Crystal Review

 Naturally Fresh Deoderant Crystal sent us some products to review. 

Here's some info about them:
Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal products are made of mineral salts, which are * Pure and natural * Fragrance Free (products also available in scented varieties) * Non-staining * 24-hour effective * Hypoallergenic The products function as natural deodorants that kill odor-causing bacteria, while permitting the pores to excrete toxins naturally. This is vital to maintain healthy, auxiliary lymph nodes which are located in the underarm area

Who Should Use the Products? Approximately 10 percent of the population cannot use conventional deodorants for various reasons. Generally, either the perfumes which are used to mask odor or the antiperspirant ingredients will act as allergens and cause rash and irritation. Naturally Fresh Crystal Deodorant is ideal for: * Men and Women with sensitive skin and require hypoallergenic products * People seeking a healthy alternative or better lifestyle * People undergoing radiation and cancer treatment.

Aluminum Issue Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal has no harmful aluminums. Naturally-occurring aluminum compounds are abundant in our environment. They are found in most foods and drinking water. Many people and doctors have concerns in respect to the processed aluminums found in conventional deodorants. These processed aluminums have very small molecules and can penetrate the skin. Alum, on the other hand, is naturally occurring and not processed. It has a large molecule and does not penetrate the surface of the skin. Our products are officially endorsed by Dr. Melanie Bone, a gynecological surgeon and long-term breast cancer survivor. 

# 1 Dr. Recommended Dr. Melanie Bone is a gynecological surgeon with over 20 years of experience and long-term breast cancer survivor. She is the founder of the Cancer Sensibility Foundation (www.cancersensibility.org) as well as Cancer Shop USA (www.cancershopusa.com). Her goal is to provide consumers with insight into the benefits of using our Roll-Ons and Spray Mists, specifically for people looking to prevent cancer, for cancer patients and for cancer survivors. Dr. Bone also encourages the use of our products prior to mammogram screenings to avoid reading errors sometimes associated with the use of conventional, aluminum-containing antiperspirants.

We enjoyed using the roll-on the most. The spray was a little more messy, but still worked well. The chapstick was great! It took a little getting used to this new deodorant, but overall, we enjoyed it. The most unusual part about it was that you still sweat on your underarms, but it doesn't STINK! I originally thought it wasn't working that well, but it actually did! After we got over the fact that we would still sweat, we enjoyed the products more...

Tru-Nut sent us some of their powdered Peanut Butter to review! Here's some info from their website:
Powdered Peanut Butter is the newest thing to happen to peanut butter in… well, a long time.  Tru-Nut makes Powdered Peanut Butter in three flavors, original peanut butter flavor and chocolate, and their newest addition, CINNAMON. Unlike traditional peanut butter, Tru-Nut contains at least 85% less fat and fat calories.  Tru-Nut is non-GMO, all-natural and gluten-free.  So how is it made?
Powdered Peanut Butter starts out with high oleic, roasted peanuts.  The peanuts are then pressed to remove the oils.  The peanuts are then ground into a fine powder that still retains all of the natural peanut flavor.
Who says you can only use it to make peanut butter?  Tru-Nut is perfect for all kinds of uses, make Powdered Peanut Butter a part of your daily diet!

We loved these! Our favorite way to eat the PB was in our Oatmeal Bakes!

We loved that we could get a yummy Peanut Butter flavor without adding tons of fat and calories. It still gives you a strong peanut butter flavor and tastes great! We also add them to our smoothies for a little added protein as well.

Revitalize Protein Powder Review

We were sent some samples of SBV High Quality Supplements to review. 

Revitalize Classic Blend
Ultra High Quality German Whey Concentrate (80% protein)
Micellar Casein
Sweetener: Stevia (All Natural)
No Soy
Gluten Free

Peanut Butter Cookie Crumble
Banana Nut Bread
CocoaNut (Chocolate Coconut Almond)

Our Review: 

First of all, I have to share info from an email from the owner.
"Our samples are hand made upon order fresh from an open jar. We don't pre-make them and allow for them to sit for extended periods of time." 

 We really enjoyed that these protein powders were super fresh! We appreciate the extra time and effort from the company. 

The flavors tasted great! I really liked the Peanut Butter Cookie and Banana Nut Bread. 

***Funny Story***
I immediately gave Jared the CocoaNut (since it was chocolate flavored and I don't eat chocolate). He said it tasted good, but that he didn't think I should try it because it tasted chocolatey. I told him, "Of course it does, it is COCOA NUT! haha" and He replied, "ohhhhh... I thought it was just plain coconut. I didn't notice the spelling." HAHAHAHA!!!

Aside from the flavor misunderstanding, we really enjoyed these powders! They weren't chalky. They mixed smoothly and tasted great!

We were sent Eat-Smart Bars, Nogii Protein Bars and NOW Energy Bars.

Soy protein is a high-quality, plant-based protein which promotes muscle growth and development and can help preserve lean body mass during weight loss. A blend of proteins – soy, whey and casein, may also prolong muscle building after exercise and increases recovery compared to whey alone.

Fall Happenings

We have been enjoying a lovely fall so far! Luckily, it hasn't been TOO cold yet, and I have been able to enjoy nice walks with the kiddos I nanny for during the day. I love the family! The kids are super sweet and a pleasure to hangout with, and the parents are extremely nice and help us with whatever we need during the day! Jared practices at a golf course on Mondays that is five minutes from the house, so he stops by for lunch when he can. The kids love him as well and he enjoys hanging out with them too.
Yesterday, the weather was beautiful, so we headed over to the park to play for a while. It is right next to the golf course, so Amelia was super excited to "putt" with Mr. Jared. (she just rolled the ball on the green..hahaha) She also got to "pretend" she was driving the golf cart.

I've been trying some new recipes lately, and this was just one evening's menu. I made a version of chicken cordon bleu from a Hungry Girl Recipe.  I just eliminated the bun. I made a batch of Apple Pie Protein muffins for dessert (and snacking throughout the week). They were really good!

For Halloween, our niece and nephew had the cutest costumes. 

Boston was Super Grover. He is OBSESSED with him. On a daily basis, he will put on a cape and "fly" around the house and answers to "Super Grover", not Boston. haha.

Charlotte was "Charlotte's Web". I thought it was a very clever idea! Props to Holly (her mom) on that one! :)

Well, that's what has been going on with the Wolfepack lately. Hope you all are enjoying the fall season as well!

Enjoy Life Chewy Bars (New Formula) Review

Enjoy Life sent us their Chewy Bars with their new formula to try and review!

Here's some info from their website:
Soft and chewy, our bars are a perfectly delicious and wholesome breakfast, midday snack, lunch box treat, or late day pick-me-up. There are four great-tasting flavors to satisfy everyone's cravings and they are packed full of essential vitamins and minerals for added health benefits. Our portion control, 1 oz bars are sure to make everyone smile with delight! Look for them in our bright new packaging in the gluten-free or cereal bar section of your favorite store.

Our Review: 
These little bars were full of flavor and yummy goodness! The caramel apple was Kelsey's favorite. Jared liked the Cocoa Loco the best. (Go figure, considering Kelsey loves caramel and Jared loves chocolate! haha) 
The only reason we gave them a 9/10 was because we wished they were bigger! (that always seems to be the case with us! haha.. we have big appetites!) But, we enjoyed these as an after meal dessert. They were just the right size for those times when you're still a little hungry, but don't want to eat too much more!

I also gave some to the little two year old I nanny and she LOVED them! Her mom was so impressed by the company because it's hard finding her things to eat because she is allergic to tree nuts! Her mom is going to buy more Enjoy Life products! :)

Our Review:


These little bites were awesome! We loved the chewy texture! They were full of great flavor! Jared enjoyed the chocolate covered ones as a little treat. We liked to eat these by themselves, but we also added them to our oatmeal bakes for a yummy surprise in the middle! :)
