  • Product Spotlight: Herbal Choice Mari

    Posted on August 11, 2014 by Whitney Faber

    When it comes to skin care, it’s not just about how well the product works, but also how it’s made.

    After all, these are the products you put on the face you show the world.

    The Herbal Choice Mari skin care line created by Nature’s Brands is made with one philosophy in mind: what people put on the outside affects their insides. All of their products are made exclusively with earth- and plant-based ingredients.

    So when two items from the Herbal Choice Mari line arrived for the Gluten-Free Saver team to try, we knew we had two pure, natural products on our hands.

    Here’s what we tried:
    Herbal Choice Mari organic night cream
    Herbal Choice Mari organic skin rejuvenator for normal to oily skin

    Both products come in clean, durable glass packaging with all ingredients and skin care preparations listed on the bottle or jar.

    The organic skin rejuvenator has a light liquid texture, which makes it perfect for day use, but it can also be used at night. Its scent is flowery and sweet, but not overpowering. Just be sure to shake the bottle well before each use so that the oils are mixed evenly.

    The organic night cream seems heavy upon first glance but when it is rubbed into the skin, it has a light, milky texture that moisturizes quickly. The cream smells very earthy but that is not surprising for such a natural and healthy product.

    Overall, the Herbal Choice Mari skin care products are effective and well made. And most importantly, these are products you can trust.

    They are100% certified organic by the USDA and contain no chemicals, additives, fillers, sulfates, parabens, soy, corn or gluten. They are also vegan and certified cruelty free by the Leaping Bunny.

    And for a limited time only, you can try these products at a savings of 40% off the regular price. Receive both the organic skin rejuvenator and the organic night cream for just $34!

  • Guest Blogger: Gluten Free Jenna

    Posted on June 23, 2014 by Whitney Faber

    Certified Personal Fitness Chef Jenna Drew has been active in the gluten free community since 2007.  She has written cookbooks, worked one-on-one with recently-diagnosed Celiacs and been recognized as a Celiac Awareness All-Star by the Celiac Support Association and National Foundation of Celiac Awareness.
    In October 2013, Jenna launched GlutenFreeMealPlan.org to provide weekly gluten free meal plans, grocery lists and recipes. After shopping and cooking gluten free for so many years, she has learned all the dos and don'ts of saving money and time at the grocery. Here are her quick tips on how to shop smarter.
    3 Ways to Save Time and Money When Shopping for Gluten Free Groceries
    Not only can going gluten free be confusing, but it’s also expensive!   A regular loaf of bread is about one dollar, but a loaf of gluten free bread can be as much as ten dollars! Plus, if you add up all of the time you spend reading ingredient labels, you can waste hours at the grocery every single week.
    Here are three easy ways to save time and money when shopping gluten free:
    Plan Meals Ahead
    Plan meals that will include leftovers that you can use for lunch or a snack later in the week.  This way you only have to cook once, and you have an extra meal ready to eat.  Planning ahead can help you save money on groceries, since you’ll be creatively using the ingredients and have less food go to waste.  If you hate being in the kitchen (or more likely the clean up after cooking), this is a great way to spend less time in the kitchen, too!
    Write a Shopping List
    The best way to save time and money at the grocery store is to write a shopping list.  If you stick to the list, then you can quickly make your way throughout the store, and it keeps you from buying those little extras that start adding up.
    Buy in Bulk
    One of the easiest ways to save money on gluten free foods is to buy staples in bulk.  While most of my diet is fresh meats, vegetables and fruits, there are some staples that can be bought in bulk like gluten free pasta, rice and quinoa.  Buying these ingredients can help you to save money.  Don’t think you’re going to go through an entire case of gluten free pasta this year?

  • Product Spotlight: Cuisine Cube

    Posted on April 18, 2014 by Whitney Faber

    Cuisine Cube knows good gluten-free food. They scour the market for the most unique, trusted and tasty brands.

    So imagine the delight of the Gluten-Free Saver team when the latest cube arrived at our office door.

    Cuisine Cube is a monthly gluten-free food delivery service. Once you start a subscription, each month a cube packed with at least five gluten-free food items arrives directly at your door. Each item is taste-tested so that you know you’re always receiving the best gluten-free foods.

    Here is what was in Gluten-Free Saver’s cube:
    Doli di MariaChocolate chocolate chip biscotti
    Pretzel Perfections garlic herb twice baked pretzels
    Quinn hickory smoked cheddar microwaveable popcorn packs
    Mediterranean Sensations lemon and garlic rice pilaf
    Flour Buds Bakery corn muffin
    Goodie Girl Tribeca crunchy chaos and quinoa chocolate chip cookies

    Bonus items:
    Gallo Lea BBQ pizza kit
    Vigilant Eats superfood oatmeal: coconut maple vanilla
    Danny Macaroons salted caramel macaroons

    Overall, the cube was a great mix of food options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time: biscotti for breakfast, popcorn for lunch, rice pilaf for dinner and pretzels for a snack. And Cuisine Cube never forgets dessert. The April box also included crunchy and sweet quinoa chocolate chip cookies.

    It was fun and exciting to try so many new delicious foods, each with its own distinct flavor. Flour Buds Bakery’s corn muffin is so classically sweet it will have anyone craving a full southern BBQ. The hickory smoked cheddar popcorn from Quinn is exactly the type of unique snack that Cuisine Cube specializes in introducing to its subscribers. It was easy to make, totally tasty and – the best part – completely guilt free.

    But the true standout had to be Pretzel Perfection’s twice baked flavored pretzels. They were light, buttery and covered with herbs. They we so finger-licking good, it was difficult to stop from eating the whole bag.

    The only downside is that some of the foods may be difficult to find at a local grocery if you want to repurchase. But don’t worry; your cravings do not have to go unsatisfied. Cuisine Cube’s website features a “Stock-Up” section, where anyone can purchase items included in a cube.

    For just $29.99 per month, and even less if you take advantage of this special offer, Cuisine Cube is worth the price, if for no other reason than the surprise and fun of trying so many new products.

  • Product Spotlight: Van’s Natural Crackers

    Posted on December 9, 2013 by Whitney Faber

    When it comes to powerhouse foods, Van’s “Lots of Everything” crackers pack two knockout punches: flavor and nutrition.

    Made with five nutrient-rich grains, these little wafers are crunchy, tasty and completely addicting. But unlike most foods with that just-can’t-stop-munching appeal, these crackers are totally guilt free. Perfect for dipping, stacking with cheese or plain old snacking, these crackers are a must for lunch or snack time.

    Like all Van’s products, “Lots of Everything” crackers are all natural, with their flavor coming from five great grains: gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. The crackers are also cholesterol free, dairy free, corn free and contain no trans fats or artificial colors or flavors.

    Van’s has been pioneering the path of cooking delicious, good-for-you foods since its start in the 1970s as a California beachside restaurant dishing up healthy, but still tasty, waffles. By now, they have expanded their repertoire to include pancakes, French toast, cereals, snack bars and, of course, crackers, that are sold all over the country.

    Though the original Van’s restaurant is no longer serving breakfast on the beach, the company still aims to bring the same “sunny Southern California sprit” to every product it makes. Maybe that’s why these crackers are so light and easy, just like a southern California day.

  • Product Spotlight: EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars

    Posted on June 11, 2013 by Whitney Faber

    It’s not just the adorable animals’ faces on the boxes of the EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars that has us spotlighting the product – though the faces are pretty difficult to resist. They are also a deliciously sweet snack.

    Finding treats for a child with dietary limitations can be a challenge, but these bars are a yummy take on the classic rice desert. The fruity bursts in each bite make it the perfect light snack during the summer, a time when the regular lunchtime meal may just not cut it after a full day of swimming at the pool or playing at the park.

    And you can be sure these snacks won’t just make your kids happy. The EnviroKidz Crispy Rice Bars follow all the philosophies of Nature’s Path foods: they are certified organic and non-GMO Project verified. They are also low in sodium, but make sure to note that they are produced in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts and milk.

    Nature’s Path is a family-run business with its roots in farming. Their motto is to “Leave the Earth better than they found it,” and they have multiple campaigns to try to do so. In that spirit, 1% of their sales are donated towards species and habitat conservation and environmental education. So snacking on these bars doesn’t just mean seeing cute cartoon animals on the box, but also does a little bit to be sure those faces are still seen in real life.

    For more information on Nature’s Path products and where to buy the Envirokidz line, visit shop.naturespath.com.
