I tried an Acai Berry Chia Bar today that is made by Health Warrior, and was pleasantly surprised. This chia bar is 100% natural and has a nice chewy texture that is also crunchy at the same time, which makes for an interesting combination. The bar is packed with chia seeds to the point where it contains 1,000mg of Omega-3's, four grams of fiber, and three grams of protein...and yet contains only 100 calories and 15g of carbs! For those of you who like to have a quick, healthy snack on hand, this bar is an excellent choice. For more info visit their site.
When a company comes out with a new energy drink, I'm generally skeptical—I mean, you're talking to a serious coffee drinker here! But after trying this great new product from IDLife, I have now made the switch. No more coffee in the afternoon—only IDLife's energy drink. The recommended scoop gives sustained energy from late morning to mid-afternoon and the berry flavor tastes delicious. While this energy drink does contain caffeine, the boost you get is obviously very different from a cup of coffee. Some important ingredients include Bitter Orange Extract, Quercetin and Taurine. Bitter orange stimulates the digestive function by stimulating production of digestive enzymes. Quercetin is an antioxidant that provides cardiovascular protection. Taurine is an amino acid that helps regulate the level of water and mineral salts in the blood. Something else I really like is that this energy drink is sweetened with stevia, not sugar. And last, but not least, it contains red beet powder which is a rich source of protein. A jar of this magical powder lasts a long time and is much less expensive than pre-made liquid energy drinks. It also comes in handy travel packets. For more information visit: www.Health4Life.idlife.com. Review written by Patricia Seeley.
A light, fruit-focused recipe that tastes great with whatever fresh fruit you have on hand! Video demonstration link included! Ingredients: ½ cup Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour* 1 ½ cup gluten-free oats ½ cup brown sugar ½ cup (8 Tbs.) cold butter or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon 4 cups rinsed, chopped fruit ¼ - ½ granulated cane sugar ½ tsp. almond extract (if using peaches) Directions: Preheat oven to 375F (static) or 350F (convection). In a large bowl, add ¼ - ½ cup granulated cane sugar to the fruit, to taste, and pour into an 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Set aside to allow the sugar to encourage syrup to form. In another bowl, combine the Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour with the gluten-free oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in the butter or Buttery Sticks with a fork or pastry cutter the mixture becomes a rough crumble. Crumble the mixture over the fruit in the baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the topping is light brown and crispy. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream – there are soy and coconut versions available now that are great options for non-dairy toppings.
