Jovial Foods Einkorn Pasta

As you all know, I am always looking for ways for my family and I eat healthier. However, we don’t want to give great tasting foods either. That is why I am super excited when I find products that are healthier for us like Jovial Foods Einkorn Pasta. Einkorn is nature’s original species of whole wheat, first cultivated nearly 12,000 years ago. Considered even healthier than modern whole wheat, ancient einkorn grains are inherently more nutritious. It has more naturally occurring high protein (9 grams per serving), nutrient, mineral, vitamin and antioxidant content (a 2-ounce serving of einkorn pasta outperforms “superfoods” including the raw blueberry, in its nutritional value). Einkorn also is a healthy source of dietary fiber, zinc, iron, and the antioxidant Lutein, making the pasta a nutritional powerhouse and ideal for both vegan and non-vegan diets alike.

That all said, I know you have to be asking “how does it taste”. I used my two pickiest taste testers in my house — Madison (7 years old) and Will (4 years old). After asking me why these noodles looked different, they went to town on these noodles (I served them with some spaghetti sauce). Both kids asked for more helpings twice! Now, in my house, the kids normally finish their plate and don’t ask for seconds. That just tells you how good their pasta is! I personally didn’t find a taste difference between this pasta and the pasta I normally make (which is no where near as healthy as this!). Here are few recipes if you want to be way more exciting than me.

Jovial Foods Einkorn Pasta is definitely something I would buy and continue serving to my family!

Splenda Essentials Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

When it comes to staying healthy and making simple changes in order to see big results, we all have a few essential methods that we rely on. From biking to the grocery store instead of driving, to brown bagging our lunches instead of ordering out, a few small tweaks here and there can really make a difference. Splenda Essentials includes three smart ways to sweeten the foods you know and love with an added boost of B vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. It’s a calorie-free way to add a small boost of essential vitamins or fiber in each packet or teaspoon, and a way to add a little more than just ‘sweetness’ to foods and beverages.

I know, but how does it taste? Personally, I didn’t see much of a taste difference than if I had used sugar! I love that they have included ways to help you with the added vitamins and antioxidants. Many of the recipes that you can use this in (they have a list of Splenda recipes to check out) are superb like the icy lemon sorbet (can you tell that we’ve had over ninety degree weather for 2 weeks now?).

Since we’ve enjoyed this so much, I’ve got a Splenda prize pack for one of my lucky readers.  Here’s what you need to do:
