Blue Diamond Almonds Wheat & Gluten-Free Artisan Nut-Thins

IMG_0563

Flax Seeds: These crackers are made with brown rice, almonds and flax seed. These were really good, actually my favorite of the three flavors. Has a good nutty flavor with a hint of salt. I enjoyed these cracker with hummus and as well as alone. The flax seed nut-thins provides 400mg of ALA OMEGA-3.

Multi-Seeds: These crackers are made with brown rice, almonds and multi-seeds. These tasted similar to the flax seed nut-thins, still flavorful and nutty. I used these to eat salsa instead of corn tortilla chips and I thought it tasted just as good if not better. The multi-seed nut-thins provides 21g of whole grain goodness.

Sesame Seeds: These crackers are made with brown rice, almonds and sesame seeds. These were not too bad, it has a strong flavor of sesame seed and I’m not fond of sesame. My husband and aunt on the other hand liked them a lot. I used these crumbled in a bowl of chili and it tasted really good and masked the sesame flavor. The sesame seed nut-thins provides a good source of fiber.

In the end, all three nut-thins have great healthy benefits and is a nice guilty free snack. For delicious dip recipes to compliment your nut-thins, you can visit bluediamond.com.

Chef Boyardee Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is shelly aka allysmama. Congrats!

Did you know that Chef Boyardee has new whole grain products and a new website they have just launched called Club Mum?  I didn’t either till recently.

Lead by a panel of four mom bloggers and launched by Chef Boyardee, Club Mum is a new online community for moms to share experiences, ideas and tips around how to get the “good stuff” in their kids. The website will include editorial and video content on a broad range of topics, such as getting more vegetables into kids’ diets, keeping kids active during winter weather, packing nutritious lunches and encouraging philanthropy among the whole family.

Their new whole grain product launch goes hand in hand with this.    Now, I already loved that a can of Chef Boyardee counts as a serving of vegetables.  However, the whole grain aspect just makes it all the better.  I recently tried the Whole Grain Lasagna.  I’ll be honest — I couldn’t tell the difference between the whole grain and the regular lasagna.  They tasted exactly the same!  If you like Chef Boyardee products, you will love their new whole grain products.

Since my family and I enjoyed these so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to win a Chef Boyardee Prize Pack.  In it is a lunch box and 3 of the Chef Boyardee products!  Here’s what you need to do:
