Spin Your Salad With Key Largo Traders Salad Spinner

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. 

As you know, I'm trying to eat healthier with real whole food. (Our Journey To Healthier Eating Begins) and that has prompted me to eat more salads (minus the sugary fatty dressings and croutons).

But, I didn't have a salad spinner, and although I would try to dry my lettuce with paper towels, I would still wind up with super wet lettuce. So when I heard about the Key Largo Traders Salad Spinner, I couldn't wait to test it out.

It is a large 4.5 quart salad spinner. The basket doubles as a colander, and the bowl could be used as a serving dish for the salad.

So Lil Man and I put it to a test. First of all, it was super easy to use. Put the washed lettuce in the colander, place it in the bowl, put the lid on, and press the handle. Yeah, it isn't really that complicated is it?

Lil Man thought it was super fun to do. :)

And it definitely spun the water off of the lettuce. 

I put a lot of lettuce in there, and I probably should have spun it some more. The lettuce wasn't bone dry, but it was definitely dry enough to make a salad. And next time I will either use a smaller amount or spin it longer.

The 'stop' button came in handy to stop the spinning so that I could go ahead and get the lettuce out without having to wait for it to stop on its own. Overall, I'm pleased with the Key Largo Traders Salad Spinner, and I know that my family will put it to good use.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

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


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
