SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM

Recently, we were sent a package containing SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM from Moms Meet to review. I have tried other water drops, and powder mixes before, but never any from SweetLeaf® We were very excited to get to try these. 

Just the facts
  • SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM are a natural, convenient, sugar-free, and gluten-free water enhancer.
  • With no artificial ingredients or aftertaste, SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM make hydration not only easier, but delicious as well.
  • SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM contain zero calories, zero carbohydrates, and non- glycemic response, making it ideal for people managing their blood sugar or calorie intake.
  • SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM come in a convenient bottle that is great for home or on-the-go use and are available in four award-winning flavors: Peach Mango, Strawberry Kiwi, Raspberry Lemonade, and Lemon Lime.
  • One 2.1 fl. oz. bottle of SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM contains 32 servings and retails for $4.99. (shopsweetleaf.com) 

We received four different flavors of SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM to try; Peach Mango, Lemon Lime, Strawberry Kiwi and Raspberry Lemonade. While all were delicious, the Strawberry Kiwi was my personal favorite. 

They are so amazingly easy to use even my children could mix them up. We usually keep some bottled water on hand, so they could easily open up, squirt some Water DropsTM n, replace lid and shake up, and they were good to go.  I love that they could have a drink that was full of flavor but not full of calories and sugar like other sports drinks and powdered mixes on the market.  They are very economical too. For the price of one sports drink, you can buy a bottle of these and it will make around 32 servings! We've been using them nonstop and haven't even come close to running out yet.

In addition to Water Drops, SweetLeaf also makes Organic Stevia® Sweetener available in both packets and a shaker jar, which has a variety of uses. It can of course be used in baked goods, yogurt, beverages, etc., and also in savory entrees like roasted chicken or turkey, pasta sauce, salad dressings, and more. Delicious recipes can be found at SweetLeaf.com and in the new 119 recipe cookbook, Cooking with SweetLeaf Stevia®, which is available for purchase on shopsweetleaf.com/stevia-cookbook 

I really hope you will give the SweetLeaf® Water DropsTM a try. I am confident you will love them just as much as we did!

Xlear Personal Care

I was recently sent a lot full of Xlear personal care supplies. Included was a bottle of Spry mouthwash and fluoride free toothpaste, 2 different flavors of Spry Gems (think Icebreakers mints), Spry gum, and some Xlear nasal sprays. They also included a bamboo toothbrush, which I thought was really neat.

Visit Xlear.com!

Xlear and Spry are different because they include xylitol. 

  1. The benefits of xylitol
    The addition of xylitol to saline nasal sprays, neti pots, and positive pressure bottles has been shown to make them more effective at helping to prevent ear infections in children, sinus infections in adults, and asthma and allergies in people of all ages. Xylitol helps the body’s natural cleansing process to clear away allergens, asthmatic triggers and other harmful bacteria. Xylitol is also one of the newest, easiest and tastiest ways that people can improve oral health. Research done in widely different conditions confirms that xylitol use may reduce tooth decay. 

I really liked the Spry mouthwash. It tastes good, made my breath feel super fresh, and it did not burn my mouth like other mouthwashes. 

The toothpaste also tastes really good. I have never used a fluoride free toothpaste before. I didn't notice a huge difference in the way it worked compared to a regular fluoride toothpaste, but I plan to continue using it until my next dental checkup to see if my dentist notices a difference.

The Spry gum and gems were both a huge hit with all of my family. I loved the cinnamon gems, and the kids really liked the berry ones. They were a nice little pick me up when I felt like my mouth was getting dry. Same for the gum. It did not hold its flavor as long as I would have liked, but it was still enjoyable. 

The nasal sprays were especially useful this time of year. I do get mild seasonal allergies. I felt like it really helped me to keep my nose clear so I could breathe. And the fact that it was non habit forming was a huge plus!!! 

The Xlear Care kit is available for $65, but use discount code SAVE50 to bring that price down to $25!!! 

I hope you give it a try. To learn more, or to purchase, click the link under the picture above!

Recently, BzzAgent and Red Baron sent us on a new mission: try the new Brick Oven Pizza. We were more than up to the challenge!

We got a coupon for a free pizza, a fun Red Baron #LoveAtFirstBite apron, and some coupons to share with our friends so they could try the new pizza too. 

We've tried many frozen pizzas in our household. My children love it, and I love how quick and easy it is to prepare. I'm a big fan of thick crust pizzas, but I'm also a fan of crunchy and crispy too. That usually means I have to choose one or the other when it comes to my pizza. 

Enter Red Baron Brick Oven Pizza! Cooked directly on the oven rack, it's cooked evenly all over, perfect for a crispy crust. It's also thicker than your average frozen pizza, so you get the best of both worlds!

The sauce is the perfect blend of herbs and spices! I'm not sure who liked he pizza the most; me or the kids! We definitely all loved it and are excited to buy more!

#ONEswitch with Purina

I was recently sent a VoxBox from Influenster containing the new Purina One Smart Blend cat food. We received a sample bag, and a coupon for a free full sized bag!!!

My cat is already used to dry food, so it was not very difficult to start her on Purina One. I started mixing her food with 75% of her usual food and 25% of the Purina One. After a few days I moved to 50/50. At about this time I started to notice that she was leaving food in her bowl...her usual food, and eating only the Purina One. 

It was obvious she preferred the taste of Purina. She is now 100% switched over, and we couldn't be more pleased with the positive effect it's had on her. She is becoming more playful than ever, and she's quite vocal about letting me know her bowl is almost empty! 

Here she is napping with a nice full belly!

Purina One Smart Blend comes in a variety of different flavors: Healthy Kitten Formula, Salmon & Tuna Flavor, Chicken & Turkey Flavor, Vibrant Maturity 7+ Formula, Urinary Tract Health Formula, Hairball Formula, Indoor Advantage, Sensitive Systems, and Healthy Metabolism. We received the Chicken & Turkey Flavor for our sample, but bought the Salmon & Tuna Flavor for our full sized bag as my cat prefers those flavors.

I highly recommend you try this food for your cat to see if it's a good fit. We will be buying this brand exclusively from now on. We are very happy with how well our cat likes it.

Weight Watchers Super Bowl Party (and a Giveaway!!!)

I am sure that many of you have heard of Weight Watchers. And I'm sure that there are maybe a few of you who have tried Weight Watchers before. I have definitely heard of them, but haven't tried the program. I have tried some recipes in the past, though. And today, I got the opportunity to share some amazing Weight Watchers recipes with my family and friends at a sponsored Weight Watchers Super Bowl party!!!

They sent us an amazing party pack with decorations, and cookbooks, to share the Weight Watchers vision with everyone. Check it out:

My daughters and I had so much fun preparing our chosen recipes and dressing up for the game!

Our Super Bowl spread might look like others you've seen, but I bet you ours is healthier, using our recipes from the Weight Watchers Big Game cookbook. We made quite a few of the recipes but our favorites were the Cheese Fries, baked instead of fries for 4WW points per serving, and the amazingly flavorful Cauliflower Poppers for, get this, 0WW points!!!

Everyone had such positive feedback for our recipes and decorations. We tuned in to watch the Weight Watchers Super Bowl commercial, and boy, did we feel incredibly proud to be serving our guests such healthy alternatives! And no one felt like they missed out on anything!!!

Did you watch the Weight Watchers Super Bowl commercial? What were your thoughts? I'd love to hear your feedback! I have an extra cookbook left and would love to share these recipes with you! I will choose one lucky commenter to get a free Weight Watchers Big Game cookbook on Friday, February 6. I can't wait to hear your responses.

I received cookbooks and party decorations from Crowdtap and Weight Watchers for review. All opinions and photos are my own. The giveaway is my own, and not fulfilled by Weight Watchers or Crowdtap.

See Why Kleenex is my MVP!

I recently got an opportunity to sample Kleenex Brand Anti-Viral Tissues and Kleenex Brand Tissues with Lotion. It's a perfect time of year for a sample like this! Between school-aged children and holiday guests, it's a safe bet that someone will have the sniffles. 

The one thing I really LOVE about Kleenex is the super cute packaging. They have designs to coordinate with any decor and often have holiday designs as well.

Kleenex Brand Tissues with Lotion are amazingly soft and absorbant. They are the perfect tissue for preventing a raw, sore nose! 

Kleenex Brand Anti-Viral Tissues are new. And they are the first tissues of their kind. They boast some pretty amazing stats!!!

I know that any little bit helps when it comes to preventing the spread of sickness. These tissues are designed to trap germs inside them. 

I think we will be stocking up on BOTH types of tissues. Each type has a special purpose that is much needed this time of year. Give them a try. I think you will be impressed!!!

Toss The Tube!!!

Thanks to another amazing campaign from Crowdtap, I got a chance to sample Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper. Yep, that's right: tube-free. 

What an amazing concept, right?! I am sure you probably have some of the same thought that I did..."How does it stay together once you get to the end of the roll?" Well, it holds together to the very last square!!! 

It's the same quality and softness that you've come to expect from Scott brand. I was pleased that they hadn't changed anything else. 

Oh, and bonus...it's super quiet!!! Usually I could tell when someone was going to the bathroom at night because the echoing of the roll of toilet paper! Not so here. It was silent. Silent night... 😂

I highly recommend you give it a try! Not only are you going to get a great toilet paper, you are reducing your waste by not having to throw away toilet paper rolls! Win-win!!!
