It’s A New Twist On An Old Favorite, Try Tortatos Chips from RW Garcia!

My family loves both potato chips and tortilla chips so when I was open to trying snacks from RW Garcia. RW Garcia was founded back in 1982 in San Jose, California. They are a family owned and operated artisan maker of high quality organic and non GMO corn based snacks!

RW-Garcia

I was sent 4 bags of their Tortatos in Original, Salt & Pepper, Salt & Vinegar and Barbeque flavors. The Tortatos combine white corn and red potatoes in one yummy chip. These delicious snacks have 25% less fat than traditional potato chips and are made with organic non GMO corn. You can’t get much better than that until you taste the exceptional flavor of these chips! Each chip is packed with incredible flavor to tingle your taste buds and leave you wanting more. I personally love how thick these chips are because if you are a dipper like I am, you know how frustrating it can be when you dip a chip and it breaks! Then you try to fish it out of the dip only to get your fingers a mess. These Tortatos are thick enough they won’t break on you and pack a crunch like no other!

This is one snack food I don’t feel guilty about giving my family since they are all natural, non GMO and gluten free certified. I can feel confident in allowing my children to enjoy the taste and crunch of a “chip” and not worry about all the added preservatives and additives like you find in other brands of chips. After trying these once I will never again buy “normal” chips it’s one of those things you don’t know what you are missing until you pick up a bag and try them yourself, you will be in love! I have definitely added Tortatos to my next shopping list!

Tortatos

RW Garcia makes so many different types of healthy snacks like Tortatos, Dippers, Mixtbag, Veggie Tortilla Chips, Flaxseed and Corn Tortilla Chips, and 5 Seed Cracker! You can find RW Garcia Tortaos at your local Whole Foods Market, Safeway, Publix and other grocery chains and health and specialty stores, so hurry and pick up your favorite flavors today and start snacking healthier!

Tasty Organic and Natural Snacks from SunRidge Farms!

I’ve always been a junk food junkie from as far back as I can remember so when I had my gastric bypass over 4 years ago, I had to make a drastic change. For a while I was able to stop snacking and grazing in between meals but once I got pregnant with my daughter, that all ended. I was right back to my normal junk food junkie habits. I needed to get back on track because it’s been almost 3 years since I have fallen back into my old habits and to avoid putting on the pounds I need to get my butt in gear and back on track.

SunRidge Farms is a family owned company that offers a complete line of certified organic and naturally grown nuts & seeds, trail mixes, dried fruits and more. As part of their Green Commitment, their distribution facility is powered by 2,500 solar panels which eliminates 1,315,000lbs of CO2 annually! Talk about an environmentally conscious company! They have worked for over 30 years to become a Certified Green Business and are located in Royal Oaks, Ca. The company was founded in 1982 and their main mission is to “promote healthy living through the quality, integrity, and environmental sensibility of the products they create!” I have never seen a company who pays their employees extra to bike to and from work, I don’t know about you but if my work offered that I would surely do it! I get paid more and the health benefits of biking not to mention it being better for the environment it’s a win all the way around!

SunRidge Farms

I was all to happy to get the chance to sample SunRidge Farms products which included their Banana Chips, Pistachios and Trail Mix. As I was learning and reading up on the company, I was munching on their products and oh my goodness, the trail mix is a blast of different textures and flavors in your mouth and it keeps you coming back for more!

The trail mix has USDA certified organic roasted tamari almonds and sunflower seed, cashews, raisins, peanuts and pumpkin seeds. The all natural roasted pistachios are delicious and flavored with just the right amount of salt and the organic banana chips are crunchy and sweet and perfect for on the go snacking. My kids loved these on car rides and since there is no sticky mess afterwards they are my go to car snack!

SunRidge-Farms-Review

I noticed SunRidge Farms also makes All Natural Yogurt Almonds which is on my grocery list for my next trip to the store! Don’t they just sound phenomenal? They also offer an All Natural Berries and Chocolate Antioxidant Mix that sounds right up my family’s alley too! You can check out their full line of products on the SunRidge Farms website!

A Florida-Style Tailgate in NYC with Florida Orange Juice! #OJTailgate #MC #Sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Florida Department of Citrus. I received promotional item to thank me for participating.

As some of you may know, E and I recently attended A Florida-style tailgate at Herald Square in NYC! E loves to come with me on trips to city and I’m glad I decided to take her along this time because she had such a blast! We are huge football fans so we enjoyed getting the chance to take part in the event!

Florida-Orange-Juice-1

Like many of you, Florida Orange Juice has become a staple in our household. While at the event, We had the opportunity to try samples of refreshing Florida Orange Juice which we ended up drinking a lot of! The juice served was no-pulp too which is our family favorite!

Florida-OJ

Getting to meet Erin Andrews was such a pleasure! Even E was excited to meet her even though she has no clue who Erin was. Erin was very friendly to the children that were in attendance. The group I was with was able to ask her questions and one thing that came up was what her favorite tailgating food. Like many of us, she enjoys fried chicken and nachos on game day! With that being said, She also told us that she keeps fit by exercising regularly!

E’s favorite part of the event was clearly the football toss the Florida Orange Juice team had set up. The staff allowed E to toss the football through the hole a few times before giving some others a turn. It was a lot of fun watching her and she had a great time getting to, “play football” as she called it!

OJSelfie

I also can’t forget to mention that while at the event, we had the opportunity to sample some amazing grilled chicken made with a delicious Florida Orange Marinade! The Florida Orange Juice team was busy grilling up a storm and it looked like everyone who had the chance to try the chicken enjoyed it judging by the looks on their faces!

ojtailgate

We actually tried this recipe on game day and it came out just as tasty as it did while at the #OJTailgate event! The Florida Orange Juice gave the juicy chicken this nice zing, perfect for tailgating! I think that the recipe would taste fantastic using pork instead of chicken and can’t wait to make it for our next Sunday night football get-together with friends! Thank you Florida Department of Citrus for providing this delicious recipe. Check it out below!

Don’t Wait for the Ice Cream Truck and Head to Walgreens! #IceCreamRun

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Walgreens and Global Influence.

Our family loves to beat the heat by indulging in some tasty ice cream treats! I actually haven’t seen the ice cream truck around as much as I used to so instead of waiting around for the truck, we recently went on a Walgreens ice cream run to pick up some of our favorite Unilever brand ice cream treats!

walgreens-ice-cream

We buy everything else at Walgreens so why not ice cream? Our local Walgreens always carries some of our favorite ice cream brands like Magnum, Breyers, Klondike, Frutare, and Popsicle. They were out of Popsicles on this particular day so we ended up getting some Fruttare pops for E and her cousins to try. We also picked up some Klondike Bars and Magnum Double Caramel ice cream bars for the adults!

Walgreens-ice-cream-2

The Fruttare Strawberry and Milk pops were deliciously creamy and are made with real strawberries and creamy milk. These went over really well with the usually picky kids! As I mentioned, We picked up some Magnum Double Caramel ice cream bars for the adults. There was just enough bars in the box for the grown-ups and boy, they were satisfying!

Walgreens-ice-cream-3

An ice cream trip to Walgreens is ideal for hot summer nights with the entire family! It’s super convenient so you don’t have to make a stop at the grocery store. Skip the truck this summer and head to your local Walgreens to grab what you are craving!
