Taste the Adventure! Kalahari Biltong #Giveaway

March 28, 2017 at 6:04 am

The Husband and I loved everything about our trip to South Africa – especially the food. Out on safari, we had delicious flapjacks (crunchy cookies) and biltong. I’ve been looking for both ever since. Have you tried biltong? Do you know what it is? It’s a thinly sliced, air-dried meat traditionally eaten as a snack. The meat is cured in a mixture of vinegar, salt,…

Sorry for the wait, I’m ready to share some of my loot from Expo West. If you missed it, here’s my recap (Day 1 and Day 2). I went for 2 days plus 90 minutes and met lots of great new vendors.

Currently… A post on “things of the moment” for me (#16). [Inspired by Marcia and other bloggers.] State of things: Mother Nature is playing tricks on us in Chicago!

Healthy, Delicious Snacks from Pure Growth Organic #Giveaway

March 20, 2017 at 6:07 am

Imagine that you could buy organic snacks for your family for the same price as conventional. Would you? Of course you would.  A new mom noticed that there were a dearth of organic snack foods for the 2 – 12 set. She decided to do something about it. Pure Growth Organic believes that organic snacking should be “more delicious, more engaging for children, and more…

So Much More to See At Expo West – Day 2

March 14, 2017 at 6:11 am

After a jam packed Friday at Expo West, I barely scratched the surface of the show. I spent Friday night (with my feet elevated) making a detailed plan of attack. I wanted to check out all of the “Hot Products” exhibits at the Marriott and Hilton because they closed on Saturday. Elizabeth invited me to a 5K fun run with Nuun and Health Warrior. She told…
