PB Crave Review


I got to try out some awesome peanut butter this week. I wanted to share with you guys!

Who has time for plain PB? I mean yeah. It’s good! But add-ins are all the rage.

Made with wild honey, natural banana, and chocolate. I literally only got 2 bites of this. He would not share. Perfect for a quick healthy sweet treat, or on a piece of toast.

Cookie Nookie

coonoo

Made with cookie dough, honey, and chocolate chips. I loved this one! I used it to make frozen peanut butter balls! Sweet but not overly sweet. Just the right balance.

Razzle Dazzle

Made with wild honey, white and semi chocolate chips, and raspberries. I am not a huge fan of raspberries if I am being honest, but I would still eat this! Not overly raspberry. Sweet from the chocolate.

The nutritional stats are great and the company is small. This means fresh batches of the yummiest peanut butter every single time.

Cedarlane Omelet Review!


  • I never know what to make for breakfast. About 4 years ago, I went on a smoothie binge and literally drank a smoothie every single day for a year. That kind of died out. I am always looking for other options. http://www.cedarlanefoods.com/ asked me to try out their omelets. They are a 30 plus year natural company with healthy but still super convenient choices. With 20 grams of protein per omelet I knew this would make a good breakfast for when all I had time for was to pop something in the microwave. They sent me four flavors.
  • Spinach and mushroom
  • Garden vegetable with mozzarella.
  • Turkey bacon, vegetable and cheese.
  • Green Chile, cheese, and ranchero sauce.

IMG_7117.JPGThe spinach and mushroom omelette left me super full! I always love the combination of spinach and mushroom so this was a win.

IMG_7034.JPGThe turkey bacon omelette was good too! My only complaint? Needs more bacon. Everything needs more bacon 😉

IMG_7036.JPGThe veggie omelet was my least favorite of the bunch. It wasn’t bad, but it just wasn’t amazing. A little bland. I added some hot sauce and that helped.

Is it cheaper just to make your own egg white omelet for breakfast? Absolutely. Do you always have the time to chop up your veggies, get your protein together, and cook. Oh and not screw up the flip part of the omelet?! Ha. No you probably don’t. These are great in a cinch. Left me full for 3-4 hours.

Check out their facebook! They have a ton of other products ranging from tamales to enchiladas.

Perky Jerky Review.


I am always looking out for protein snacks for on the go. I recently got a chance to try Perky Jerky and had to share it with my readers.

2oz-turkey-sweet-spicy-bag-front

Perky Jerky is all natural, gluten-free, with no preservatives, and no nitrates. It’s literally the softest jerky I have ever tried. They marinate it overnight to make it extra tender. They have a ton of flavors and come in turkey or beef varieties.

I was mostly impressed with the nutrition. Each ounce of jerky has at least 10 grams of protein, is low fat, low sodium, and 60-80 calories. I tried the sweet and spicy turkey first and wow. It’s savory, sweet, and SO soft. I ate the whole bag. It’s addictive!

The beef jerky was also good. I recommend the teriyaki.

Since I am on Nutrisystem, 1 oz of jerky is equal to one powerfuel for me. It’s great for on the go! After I ran through my two sample bags I ordered 5 more bags! There is a special on their website right now if you buy 4 bags you get the fifth one free. Or you can try all 8 flavors for 29 dollars.

10/10 product review. There isn’t one bad thing I can say about this awesome product. Give it a try! I promise you won’t regret it!

Arctic Zero. A low calorie Dessert.


arctic

I recently got the opportunity to try Arctic Zero. A low calorie dessert. They have a  few different products ranging from pints of dessert to frozen dessert bars. Arctic Zero is naturally sweetened with a proprietary blend of monk fruit concentrate and organic cane sugar.

As I have recently started a low carb diet, I have been DYING for something sweet. I was so shocked to find out a serving of this desert is only 4 carbs. 4 of them! Totally doable! And you can eat the entire pint and only be out 150 calories with 0 grams of fat.

Okay this sounds to good to be true right? I know. That is what I thought. I anxiously awaited for my samples to arrive.

This is what I received.

  •  1 pint of chocolate
  • 1 pint of maple vanilla
  • 1 pint of cookies and cream
  • 1 pint of strawberry
  • 1 pint of mint chocolate
  • 1 pint of chocolate peanut butter
  • 1 pint of coffee
  • 1 box of strawberry and orange chocolate dipped bars
  • 1 box of vanilla and chocolate dipped in chocolate bars

Holy desert! Here are my honest opinions of each flavor.

Chocolate. 9.5/10.Chocolate-350x375

This is a winner. The flavor was right on. I made my husband a chocolate milkshake with this flavor and he was hooked. If you are a chocolate fan this is for you. A tip. Leave Arctic Zero on your counter for about 10 minutes before you start to eat it. It softens up and it gets the best texture. You can eat it straight out of the freezer but it might hurt your teeth! It kind of reminds me of a sorbet. It needs to soften.

Maple Vanilla. 9/10.Vanilla-350x375

I am a true fan of vanilla. I wasn’t sure how the maple part of this desert would play out but I was certainly delighted. Sweet but not overly sweet, and perfect with a handful of chopped macadamia nuts had my mouth singing.

Coffee. 9/10.Coffee-350x375

Another winner! Creamy and great coffee flavor. This is a great palate cleanser.

Strawberry- 8.5/10.Strawberry-350x375

My husband devoured this flavor. He said it was his favorite of the bunch. A nice strawberry flavor that tasted real and not artificial.

Mint Chocolate- 8.5/10.MintChocolate-350x375

I love mint chocolate! It’s my favorite. I could eat this dessert every single day. The mint flavor isn’t overpowering, and the chocolate is nice and light. Will keep this in the freezer for sure.

Cookies and Cream- 7.5/10.CookiesCream-350x375

Good texture, good flavor. This would make a great milkshake as well.

Peanut butter chocolate- 7/10. ChocolatePeanutButter-350x375

This was my least favorite. I was expecting more peanut butter!

The bars. 8/10.bars1 bars2

The fruit flavors are my favorite. Orange arctic zero covered in dark chocolate? Total home run. The other bars were good as well.

You can purchase Arctic Zero at your local grocery store. If they do not carry it, you can always ask the store manager to start!

At 150 calories a pint, 0 fat, low carbs, I would say this product is totally worth your time. It even has PROTEIN in it. It’s a no brainer. A great treat for those trying to watch their weight or live a healthier lifestyle.
