Ladera Granola Immortal Chocolate Almond

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

If you've been reading my blog, then you know that I've been trying to make some changes, and that we are starting our journey to healthier eating.

Well, the timing for this product review couldn't have been more perfect. If you remember, I tried Ladera Granola earlier this year, and you can read that review here. I liked the granola, and when I heard about Immortal Chocolate Almond, I jumped at the chance to give it a try. Hello, you said chocolate!




Well, with our new way of trying to eat real food, I'm trying to eat less processed, and if I can't pronounce the ingredients list, we are trying to stay away from that food.


You want to know the ingredients in the Ladera Granola Immortal Chocolate Almond? It's WHOLE grain oats, slivered almonds, olive oil, cocoa powder, brown sugar, and salt. So basically, I know what I'm eating. And I personally feel good about that.

Now, the real test, how did it taste? I loved it! A quarter cup (the serving size) was actually just the right amount to satisfy my sweet tooth. But with the almonds and the oats, I also got a crunch. It was really the best of both worlds. And that was just plain. I would imagine it would be awesome in yogurt, and well of course on ice cream ;)

But, I asked Hubby to give it a taste. He wasn't thrilled to try it. He's not a big fan of chocolate. I mean he likes chocolate. He just isn't crazy about it. But he reluctantly took a small pinch. Then, he reached for more ;). I said, be honest, what do you think? He said it was 'pretty good' and coming from him that's a pretty big compliment. So he'll be getting some in his lunchbox since he liked it.

The slogan for Ladera Granola is "We're nuts about natural."

I really like that slogan, and so far, I've really liked their products. Check Ladera Granola out at their website http://laderagranola.com. You an also find them on facebook and twitter.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
