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.

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
