Ballasox USA

OK Gals! This has got be the most comfortable sandal ever! Thank you very much to Ballasox USA. Sure it's absolutely adorable but what I really like is the extra cushy comfort that carried me through an entire weekend of errands, shopping and chasing around kids. Nothing at all like your typical flip flop which has no support at all and leaves your feet and back hurting after a few hours.

Ballasox USA has some amazing styles including Ballet Flats, Espadrilles, Sneakers and Sandals. I'm wearing the LIZ Sandal and am in love! I feel like I'm walking on a cloud!

I consider this an advanced sandal since your getting much more than a typical sandal we we all wear. I'm thrilled how I just keep going and the bonus is my pinched nerve from sciatica hasn't flared up like it usually does after a long weekend of activities. Go me! Go see for yourself all the cute and comfortable shoes over on the site for yourself. I'd love to know what else you have your eye on!

Ballasox USA has generously offered to give one of my readers a pair of they're own! I knew you'd all love that! Retail 98.00 USA only. Ends 7/13.

Little Diablo Salsa

Don't you just love salsa? We sure do in my family. Little Diablo Salsa recently sent me a generous box with three of they're amazing salsa's and I adore them! I received the Mild Garlic, the Medium and also the Mild Artichoke. I started off right away with the Mild Garlic and the first thing I noticed was how fresh it tasted. I could actually taste the tomato's, peppers and spices individually yet at the same time. YUM! Just the perfect amount of heat too and the kiddos loved it on they're scrambled eggs. That jar did not last long and I ended up using the last of it on my salad which is perfect since.... say what? No fat grams!

The hubby totally demolished the entire jar of Medium in one sitting. Since he considers himself a Salsa Aficionado living in Texas this one clearly gets two thumbs up. Looks like I will need to get more!  Little Diablo's Mild Artichoke is the one I used to make baked chicken and rice. Just added the jar right on top of the chicken while it baked. This came out so delicious and juicy. A little on the spicy side for kids but perfect if you like a kick in your meals and for entertaining. Little Diablo Salsa's are all totally natural vegetarian, gluten and preservative free and made with the freshest ingredients. Don't forget Father's Day y'all! This is absolutely a perfect gift! Check out Little Diablo Salsa on they're site and see all the goodies including gift boxes for yourself.  Can't wait? Little Diablo Salsa is giving away an awesome gift box to one of you that includes salsa's and a serving tray! Ends 06/22/2015 USA only. Enter on the form below and good luck!

Happy Earth Day!

April is the month we celebrate Earth Day! It's a reason to take a look at how you're doing in the kitchen when it comes to being more mindful about what we're eating, how we're getting it to the table and what happens after the meal is over. Here are a few tips to get you started:
  • Plant a garden. Gardening is fun activity for the whole family. Even toddlers can help with planting and watering the plants. Container gardens are a great way to accommodate small spaces. Tomatoes, lemons and herbs are just a few of the things that are easy to grow in a pot. A fun idea is to plant a theme garden. A spaghetti sauce garden can include tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and herbs. A salsa garden might include tomatoes, jalapenos, onions and cilantro.
  • Start a produce co-op to share with gardener friends. Last year, I started a produce co-op in my neighborhood. We have an online group to post when we have produce to share. Sometimes we might have more tomatoes, cucumbers or squash than we can use or process before it spoils, so sharing the bounty is a handy option. These Baja Breakfast Burritos would be a great way to use up extra produce.
  • Start a compost pile. Fruit and vegetable peels can add up and instead of throwing them in the trash, a compost pile is a natural way to let the waste work for good. Once the compost is ready, it is full of nutrients and can be added to your garden. Compost containers come in all shapes and sizes at garden centers, online or you can build your own to work in different spaces.
  • Go meatless one day a week. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet is not only good for your body with all the extra vitamins and minerals, but it's also good for the planet. Growing and producing fruits and vegetables creates fewer greenhouse emissions than the production of other food items. This Bow Ties & Veggies recipe is simple and flavorful.
  • Choose seasonal, local produce. Seasonal produce is often less expensive because it is more plentiful and easier for farmers to grow. Produce grown in greenhouses or far away is just more expensive to grow! You'll also be helping reduce the amount of fuel it takes to transport the food. These Fruit & Cream Delights highlight seasonal summer fruit and are a healthier way to enjoy a sweet treat.
  • Preserve seasonal produce to enjoy year-round. Take advantage of fresh produce sales or the bounty from your garden by freezing or canning produce. You'll not only save money but you can feel good knowing your choices today can be enjoyed all year long.
It’s simple to be a bit more mindful about the way we enjoy the foods we eat. Choose one new idea and before long it might just become a habit! Thank you Produce for Kids for the great recipes!
