Cool Down This Summer with Healthy @Sambazon Treats!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Looking to cool down with a sweet but HEALTHY treat this summer? Then check out what I have been using to cool down and stay healthy on the hottest days!

Sambazon, the first açai brand to bring organic açai to the States has some great new products including their frozen Superfruit packs and their Sorbets! Both are delicious and healthy and have become the treat to have in our house!


All Sambazon products are USDA Certified Organic, Certified Fair Trade, plant-based, non-dairy, non-GMO project verified and rich in antioxidants. This little berry is one of the only fruits on the planet to be naturally sugar free, packed with antioxidants, and full of healthy omegas – giving it a one of a kind mouth feel that’s rich, refreshing, and totally unique. Unlike any other fruit, the real magic of Açaí is that it has a perfect combination of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, giving it a creamy mouth feel and loads of trace minerals and essential nutrients.



The Superfruit packs (Original, Unsweetened, Supergreens, Performance Protein) from Sambazon are ideal for making açai bowls and smoothies at home. I make a daily smoothie for lunch and these Superfruit packs are perfect for adding my smoothies for a great boost! I especially love the Supergreens & Performance Protein pack so I get an extra boost of protein and nutrtion after a hard workout or to curb the cravings! The Unsweetened and Original were also great for adding into our homemade banana ice cream!

And the two new sorbets (Acai + Acai Coconut and Acai Chocolate + Chocolate Chip) are another great option for a healthy indulgence to satisfy cravings without the guilt! My children especially enjoyed having these sorbets as a special cool treat and I loved that the sorbets were made with healthy, organic ingredients!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


I have raved many times before about how much my family (and I!) LOVE Pirate's Booty! It really is the perfect snack for healthy summer snacking this summer, especially with their individual 1/2 oz packages! It is great to throw in the beach bag, travel bag or eat on-the-go wherever and whatever you are doing this summer!


But your children will love Pirate's Booty even more this summer because each package features limited-edition Finding Dory packaging. From April to June, Dory, Nemo and their new friend—Hank the Octopus—will join Pirate and his first mate, Crunchy the Parrot, to bring adventurous snacking to kids of all ages. The limited-edition packaging comes in a variety of sizes, including seven ounces, 10 ounces and a 12-pack of half-ounce bags of Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar.

I personally CAN'T WAIT to see Finding Dory! I loved Finding Nemo and this sequel looks just as good! Every time I grab a bag of Pirate's Booty with the cute Finding Dory characters, I get excited all over again for a family movie night watching Finding Dory!


So this summer snack healthy and join Pirate’s Booty as they celebrate Disney·Pixar's Finding Dory. Set sail for a new adventure in the deep blue sea with baked to perfection puffs made with real, simple ingredients.

Healthy Summer Eating

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Summer is the perfect time to start eating healthy and/or to continue to eat healthy! It helps the swimming suit look great and keeps you energized through the heat and the sun!

I have two healthy food companies to feature today that are helping me and my family stay healthy and eat healthy this summer - whether we are snacking or making dinner! Check them out below:

Three Bridges

We are HUGE fans of pasta in our house and my personal favorite is tortellini! My favorite brand to make for dinner is Three Bridges because they offer affordable, delicious organic pastas! And their sauces are really delicious too! Their range of products makes it easy to whip up a healthy, delicious meal in minutes!

Three Bridges’ products embrace the simplicity of fresh, premium natural and organic ingredients that you can see and recognize. Their line includes 100% Natural, Certified Organic & gluten free varieties. Three Bridges pastas and sauces are made in small batches with only the finest ingredients, sourced locally when possible.


Check out some great meal ideas below that are perfect for summer meals, entertaining and healthy eating. Find out more about these recipes on the Three Bridges website:

Crudité and Lemon Pesto Goat Cheese Dip—take a break from the overused store-bought guacamole and chips and change up your appetizer dip!

Beanitos

And for all you fellow snackers, grab a healthier snack this summer - Beanitos —makers of USA-farmed whole bean snacks that pack up to 5 grams of fiber and protein per serving.


Their newest offerings include:

My children were big fans of the Mac n' Cheese Crunch snacks because they were cheesy and crunchy good! Little did they know it was good for them too! :) And my husband loved the Nacho Cheese White Bean chips and he didn't know he was eating bean chips until I had to point it out!

Our snacks are healthier this summer with Beanitos!
