Made in Nature Review

Made in Nature Review

We were recently invited to review some Made In Nature’s products since New Year’s brings a renewed desire to eat and live healthy.  Sabrina and I over at Everything Food are already huge fans of healthy snacks and treats… SO we were more than willing to try out some of Made In Nature’s tastiness. With the new year, we agree with Made In Nature that too many people set New Year’s resolutions around changing their diet which become too drastic, too restrictive, and just not fun. Healthy eating can be very enjoyable, doable, and sustainable thanks to companies like Made In Nature. Since we all need quick and tasty snacks, organic Made In Nature has created delicious, nutritious snacks which can easily swap out those unhealthy eats.  Here are our suggestions on some of their sweet and savory options. 1. Coconut Chips - Vietnamese Cinnamon and Italian Espresso I’m a huge fan of anything coconut. Coconut is already packed full of nutrition and taste and then Made In Nature went and added some bold flavors.  Italian Espresso is bold, rich, and tastes like espresso coffee.  I personally preferred the Vietnamese Cinnamon Swirl flavor.  Crunchy and cinnamon make this girl happy.  I wish it was a little sweeter, but I still enjoyed the Vietnamese Cinnamon Coconut Chips. The texture and bold flavors reminded me of Corn Nuts.  It would be an easy and healthier swap out for Corn Nuts. 2. Kale Chips - Rosemary Truffle I love baking my own kale chips, so I was excited to try these.  These are perfect substitutes for bold flavored potato chips.  I prefer lightly salted snacks over...

10 High-Fat Foods That Are Good For YOU.

You need to eat more FAT!  No, no… don’t go run to McDonald’s for a cheeseburger.  Try eating these healthy fatty foods.  They help fight off cancer, stabilize cholesterol levels, burn fat, enhance your bodies ability to absorb nutrients, decrease heart disease, and improve memory and ‘brain’ health.     If that isn’t motivation enough, they are also mouthwatering and scrumptious.        1. Avocados   Avocados are nature’s power food.  They’re very low in fructose and provide close to 20 essential health-boosting nutrients.  Avocados are one of the safest fruits.  Most experts believe you do not need to purchase organic ones because of their thick skin which protects against pesticides.  They are great for sandwiches (try mashed avocado instead of mayonnaise), smoothies, salads, soups, guacamole, dips, and toppings for about anything.   2. Coconut Milk   Coconut Milk contains mostly medium chain fatty acids which are more easily burned as energy which makes it a great option for a ‘good’ fat.  It almost maximizes calcium absorption.  This is a great substitute for heavy whipping cream in soups, milk in oatmeal, and many other recipes.  Lots of people have commented they don’t like coconut.  It actually DOES NOT taste ‘coconutty’ at all.  Trust me.  You won’t taste the coconut.   3. Coconut Oil   Coconut Oil,  just like coconut milk, have lots of health benefits.  It’s packed with anti-oxidants and medium-chain triglycerides which help with skin and hair care, stress relief, weight loss, immunity, digestion, diabetes management, and  heart health.  Instead of butter or other oils, try using coconut oil!  Just like coconut milk, you WILL NOT taste the coconut.  Promise.  Also,...
