FitTea Review: Start Your 14 Day Detox #FitTea



Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with FitTea and Markerly. All opinions stated are my own.

I love tea. There has always been something special about it to me ever since I was a kid. I remember my grandma making sun tea in a pitcher outside and I remember her having her hot tea every night to unwind. As an adult, I now love making sun tea in the summer and sipping on a hot cup of tea, either to wake up or relax, depending on the time of day. Who knew that tea would be so useful as to help a person detox or lose weight? Well it can!  If you are looking for a natural and delicious way to detox and loose a few pounds doing it, look no further than FitTea. FitTea is the all natural detox tea that suppresses appetite. In fact, their motto is “Give us a few weeks and we’ll give you a new waistline”.

It’s being widely used by celebrities as well as regular folks such as myself.

I was sent a 14 day detox pack recently, so that I could write this FitTea review. Being a tea drinker, I was really looking forward to giving it a taste test. While I could personally stand to lose a few pounds, I was really more interested in the detox aspect of the tea because I had been getting some serious headaches, overall sluggishness and brain fog which I can assume had been coming from some of my poor food choices. For me, all of those things are a sign that my body could use a good cleanse and also because I just love tea and trying new brands. Now that I’ve given you some background, I wanted to answer some questions you may have and give more details about FitTea.

What is FitTea?

Fit Tea is a detoxifying loose leaf tea, that contains a powerful blend of Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, corn and Honey Powder. The all natural ingredients in Fit tea may help boost your immune system (to help keep you from getting colds and flu’s throughout the year), promote fat burning by increasing your metabolism, promote and soothe digestion to make you feel lighter and healthier and has antimocrobial properties to help you feel healthy physically an mentally as well as help detox the body.

Who can use FitTea?

The FitTea is meant for adults but can be taken by children ages 13 and up with parental permission and guidance throughout.

What does FitTea taste like?

Hmmm. I am not sure that I could describe the flavor. It’s a very delicious, hot tea. It’s like a wild combination of many flavors, none of which I could put my finger on, but they blend very well together. It’s a bit on the tangy side, but not like an orange is tangy. If you like your tea sweeter, you can add honey, but I haven’t because I like the flavor as it is.

Will I lose weight with FitTea?

While FitTea helps to suppress the appetite, weight loss results may vary from person to person.

How should I use FitTea?

For best results, FitTea should be taken in the morning. It does contain caffeine (the same amount as one cup of coffee), so you should definitely not take it at night if you are sensitive to it. For the detox, you should have 1 cup a day for best results. It is also recommended to stay hydrated with plenty of water, exercise regularly 3-5 times per week, eat healthy, balanced meals, and repeat.

How do you prepare FitTea?

Place 1 teaspoon (2 grams) in a strainer/infuser to a cup of near boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Remove strainer and enjoy. (Cold or Hot).

How long can I use FitTea?

You can take FitTea for as long as you like as long as you want to lose weight or maintain weight.

What were my personal Fit Tea results?

I have been using Fit Tea for just a few days, so I really can’t say that any major change has happened for me as of yet in the weight loss area. I did notice that my headaches are gone, and the brain fog has been lifting which is really what I was going for. So for my purposes, I’d say it’s working. If I lose some weight in the next week or so, it’s a great bonus.

Where can I buy FitTea?

FitTea can be purchased online at the FitTea site. They have several products and options available for purchase.

You can follow FitTea on these social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube to keep up with their latest news and promotions.

Have you tried FitTea yet and if so, what were your FitTea Results?

Introducing the Del Taco #Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito & $20 Giveaway #EpicAvocado #UnFreshingBelievable (Ends 6/25)

Burrito
Disclosure: I received free product as part of this review. All opinions stated are my own.

One of my family’s favorite places to eat these days, when we choose to dine out, is Del Taco. Not only are they budget friendly, but their food is always fresh and delicious whenever we go there. I was so excited to learn that they are now offering avocado (one of my favorite things) which can be added to any menu item for 30 cents per slice or get three slices for 90 cents AND they have added a new item to their menu called the Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito! It’s loaded with six fresh slices of Hass avocado, freshly grilled chicken, handmade pico de gallo, fresca lime rice, seasoned black beans and salsa casera wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. It’s priced at $5.29.

I was able to visit recently and try out the new burrito and it sure was good. And let me tell you that you get ALOT of burrito for $5.29. It was huge! Definitely a full meal for most people. It’s the perfect food for these hot summer days we’ve been having. The pico de gallo added a little bit of spiciness to it, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly hot. It was nothing that a $1 strawberry lemonade couldn’t take care of.

Buy it: You can get the Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito at a participating Del Taco near you. Through 6/17, you can get a free small drink with purchase of Epic burrito.

Win it: One of you will win a $20 Del Taco gift card so that you can try the Epic Grilled Chicken Avocado Burrito or add avocado to any menu item for yourself. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Level Foods decadent low carb/low sugar treats review & giveaway (Ends 6/18)

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.36.55 PM
Disclosure: I received free products as part of this review. All opinions stated are my own.

If you are diabetic or are just into weight loss or low carb foods and you have a sweet tooth, I want to share with you about Level Foods. Level Foods products are low glycemic, gluten free, low carb with added protein and fiber to help you feel full and aid digestion, all while helping you lose weight. And, they taste good.

level foods
I was sent this awesome sample pack of snacks and shakes to try out for this review. While I am not diabetic, I still wanted to try these because I tend to get low blood sugar at times. In the box were packs of shakes, bars, sweet snacks and glucose gels.

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.12.24 PM
The protein shakes come in four flavors: Rich caramel, Classic vanilla, Strawberry creme and Milk chocolate. There are four shakes in a pack. I really like these. They all had the expected amount of sweetness and the flavor was right.

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.16.15 PM
The protein bars available are Caramel chocolatey peanut, Chocolatey crisp bar, Double chocolatey chip bar and Chocolatey peanut crunch bar. My favorite thing about these is that the recurring theme is chocolate. Usually when I am craving a snack when I am out, I really want something chocolatey, which could lead to a stop at a vending machine for a candy bar, so this is really much more convenient for me and not a sacrifice.

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.16.37 PMThe glucose gels also come in four flavors: Mandarin orange, Green apple, Vanilla and Strawberry banana. These are great for when you need to raise low blood sugar fast. You know, when you get hungry and are super grumpy because you need to eat? Yeah, that’s what these are for. They are conveniently sized, so they would easily fit in a purse or coat pocket.

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 2.15.55 PM
The sweet snacks available are Peanut butter cups and Peanut turtle bars. These were my favorite, especially the peanut butter cups! My kids did see me with them so I had to share. They also gave a thumbs up on them.

My family and I sometimes like to go out for long nature walks in the park. These products are actually perfect for bringing along on trips like these. When the kids start getting cranky and hungry when you’re out on a trail, it’s so nice to be able to give these to them. They taste good, so the kids don’t complain and they are just filling enough. Not so much that it spoils their dinner, but it’s just enough to tide them over. They are also great for us parents too.

Buy it: Level Foods are available to purchase at your local retailers or online. If you order online, you will save 25% off your order of $20 or more with code TRYLEVEL25. Click here to shop.

Win it: One of you will win the same Level Foods products as I did! (RV $60) Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Milford Valley Chicken Strips & Nuggets: They’re Not Just for Kids

milford valley
Since Milford Valley Chicken products recently came to the NW, I have buying my share. They are really delicious and crispy. You can read my full review on them here. And please note, that Milford Valley also has entrees available as well as the nuggets, strips and patties.  In fact, there will be a coupon for the entrees soon on their site. You can look for a new $1 off coupon good on any 10 oz or 30 oz Milford Valley entrée on the website on Monday (April 27, 2015).

nugget meal
If you are the parent of a child, you likely buy a lot of chicken nuggets. At our house, I usually have what my kids are having, which means that I get to partake of chicken strips and nuggets o’plenty. Most often, our plates of nuggets look like what you see above with some added dipping sauce. While this may satisfy my kids, I can sometimes get nuggeted-out, so I try to get creative in the ways I use them. Some alternatives to eating just plain strips or nuggets that I like are to cut them up and put them in a salad, or quesadilla. Making a wrap sandwich out of them is also great too. What are your favorite alternatives to eating just plain chicken nuggets or strips? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Spring is Here. Celebrate with Tinkerbell & the Legend of the Neverbeast

TinkerBellAndTheLegendOfTheNeverbeastBluray
Spring is here and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with Tinkerbell. Have you heard about the new Disney Tinkerbell & the Legend of the Neverbeast movie that recently came out on Blu-ray & DVD? It was released on March 3rd. If you haven’t yet watched the movie, here is a short overview of the film:

“Return to Pixie Hollow for the heartwarming and humorous adventure “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast”! An ancient myth of a fabled creature sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell and her good friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to help an animal in need. But this creature – massive and wondrous with glowing green eyes – is not welcome in Pixie Hollow – and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast, who they fear will destroy their home. Fawn, who sees a tender heart beneath his gruff exterior, must convince Tink and her fairy friends to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast.”

My daughter and I always love to watch this movie together. Without giving any spoilers, I will say that we are very sensitive movie watchers and there is a scene where we both get a little choked up. For us, getting emotional is a sign of a good movie.

Buy it: Tinkerbell & the Legend of the Neverbeast is now available on Disney Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD & On-Demand.

Milford Valley Chicken Comes to the Northwest & Giveaway (2 Winners) Ends 3/29)

milford valley
A company that some of you may be familiar with, Milford Valley, is expanding to the Northwest. I was not familiar with these products until recently when I received a nice selection of their Patties, Strips and Nuggets for review.

At our house we go through a lot of chicken products, especially nuggets and strips. I was surprised to see on the box that these should not be cooked in the microwave because these are raw. They should only be cooked in the oven. I think this may have something to do with why they are so tasty. We tried all of these products and each time they came out, golden, crispy and moist. They did not disappoint. I found these to be super convenient for lunches and even week night dinners. We all became BIG fans of the Patties, so I am glad that these will be available locally, so that I can get some more.

If you are in the North West, you can get Milford Valley Patties, Strips and Nuggets at the following stores:

Food 4 Less – N. Calif.
Saar’s — WA
Sherm’s – OR
Shop N’ Kart – OR

Buy it: Milford Valley Chicken products can be purchased at select retailers. Go here to find a location near you. Right now you can get a coupon for $1 off when you buy one (1) 20 or 30 oz. Milford Valley Chicken Patties, Strips or Nuggets products.

Minecraft Ocelot Premium Zip-up Youth Hoodie Review #ocelothoodie

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.38.42 PM
I can’t think of anything that’s hotter with the kids right now than Minecraft. It seems to be the running theme in our house over the last couple of years. All of my kids, ages ranging from 12 to 5, all love it completely. Whenever it’s time to buy gifts, whether it’s for a birthday or another holiday, I can guarantee that something having to do with Minecraft will be on their list.

oscelot hoodie
I love that Jinx has come out with an assortment of Minecraft clothing and toys.  While my kids have a good collection of Minecraft t-shirts, they did not yet have hoodies, so my son was super thrilled when Jinx sent me an Ocelot Premium Zip-up Youth Hoodie for this review. My 8 year old son was the lucky recipient of this item. He is in about a size 10 boys right now and I got him the size Youth XL. It fit just slightly big, but to me, that means he can wear it for longer.

oscelot slly
This is a super soft hoodie made with a mix of 60% Cotton and 40% Polyester Fleece with ultra-soft interior. It features the super cute Ocelot face as well as pixel graphics on the arms and front pockets.

The zipper pull features the Minecraft Logo which is very sturdy.

Ioscelot creeper
Another fun detail is the creeper located on the bottom band of the sweater.

My son just loves his new hoodie and he wears it to school everyday. He has received many compliments on it from his friends. I think it’s as cute as can be and think I know what my other two kids will be asking for when their birthdays come.

Buy it: You can get your own Minecraft Ocelot Premium Zip-up Youth Hoodie as well as many other Minecraft items from Jinx. Click here to shop.
