Kiss Me Organics - Organic Matcha - Green Tea Powder review






I've been a green tea drinker for a couple of years now, and I'm always looking for ways to improve my health and energy levels. I was recently introduced to Organic Matcha Tea Powder from Kiss Me Organics. This green tea powder from Japan is used for drinking as tea or as ingredient in recipes. I have used this brand to make tea, added to baking recipes, and add a little to my morning juicing routine. It doesn't take much to make tea, or add to juice or smoothies. The taste is vegetal and sweet - a good combination. The health benefits of matcha is great, good for diabetics, or those wishing to reduce sugar content. Matcha is filled with antioxidants, fiber, and chlorophyll. I get steady energy adding this product to my diet, but I don't get nervous, or lose sleep. I am seeing good results with my energy level being boosted, and also seeing a slight improvement in my skin health. 

Culinary Grade Description:
  • ALL DAY ENERGY & FOCUS: Lift your vitality and concentration with the slow release natural energy from Organic Matcha
  • CALORIE BURNING BOOSTER: Support your weight loss goals with an all-natural way to increase your body's metabolism
  • LATTES | SMOOTHIES | BAKING: Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder arrives in an easy-to-use airtight health grade packaging allowing for as much or as little use as you need for any occasion. Enjoy a relaxing latte in the morning, bake a dozen cupcakes or simply add a small boost to your morning smoothie
  • 137x ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA: USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea can only be used in a powdered form because, unlike brewed green tea, it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content.

This product comes with recipes. I like to add a little honey to my tea. I can also use soy milk with this for smoothies. So many ways to make this product work for you. It works for me. I love it.

Kiss Me Organics offers a LIFETIME GUARANTEE 110% MoneyBack! You can find this Organic Macha Green Tea by Kiss Me Organics on Amazon

How To Track Ovulation

Are you looking for information and tips on pregnancy and conceiving? There is so much to read and enjoy on this site. Check them out.

When you are trying to conceive, you sometimes get too stressed when you see that your pregnancy test keeps showing negative. Don’t fret, most couples get pregnant after around 2-4 months of trying to conceive, some couples take longer than that. Pregnancy doesn’t just happen in a blink of an eye. According to Pregnancytips.org, there are several factors why attempts to getting pregnant aren’t successful. A woman only has a 2-day window of opportunity every cycle. That is when she is ovulating. If the sperm isn’t able to catch the egg when the woman ovulates, chances of getting pregnant may not be possible.

The woman should be able to track her cycle and her ovulation day to make sure they don’t miss that short window of opportunity when trying to conceive. There are several ways to track ovulation. A woman can either use a basal body thermometer or an ovulation predictor kit; both are available over the counter. She can also use an online fertility app for android/iPhone user, or can even detect ovulation just by checking her cervical mucus.

 I received this DVD 2-Pack for review purposes. All opinions are my own.


Details: 

This Faith & Family DVD 2-Pack features two movies - All Roads Lead Home and Your Love Never Fails.In All Roads Lead Home, Belle (Vivien Cardone) was once a happy-go-lucky 12-year old, but her mother's death causes her to become sullen and withdrawn. In an attempt for to get away, her father sends Belle to live at the horse farm of her gruff maternal grandfather (Peter Coyote). With the help of the animals, Belle’s work on the farm transforms the entire family. Life takes on new meaning as the family makes some tough choices involving compassion, trust and letting go of the past in order to find hope in the future. In Your Love Never Fails, Laura (Elisa Donovan) longs for more time with her daughter Kelsey, but her demanding boss Paul (Fred Willard) continues to pile on more work. When Kelsey’s father, Dylan (Brad Rowe) files for joint custody, Laura is forced to take Kelsey to Texas. Laura must confront the lifestyle, church and father (Tom Skerritt) that she left behind. With the help of the local church pastor, Frank (John Schneider), Laura and Dylan will find their way back to the commitment they made to each other and to Kelsey.

Once upon a sleepless night, while I perused Facebook, stealth and might,

Like jack-o-lanterns dancing, dancing on my computer with more



  "Just some giveaway," I mumbled, "dancing on my computer and more-



                Only this, and nothing more.  Bringing me a giveaway from Halloween Forevermore…”

Keep Momming

 “I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all. And as a mother of four, she’s encountered just about every parenting challenge you can imagine. One of her biggest challenges as mom is building and maintaining a close relationship with her teenage daughter, Ryan.

The mother-daughter relationship is a unique one, and that dynamic can be even trickier during the tween years. Yet sometimes, people dismiss certain behaviors as “typical tween girl behavior” when those behaviors can be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

I’m proud to be joining forces with Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

Don’t miss Holly’s message about the keep momming initiative http://goo.gl/Uayao5, and be sure to check out the website at KeepMomming.com.

Honor The Earth




Welcome to the April 2014 Natural Living Blog Carnival: Honor the Earth.  

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Natural Living Blog Carnival hosted by Happy Mothering and Crunchy Farm Baby through the Green Moms Network. This month, our members are talking about how they honor the Earth year round. Stop by all of the posts to get ideas on how to live a more Eco-friendly lifestyle.

What are some things that your family does to reduce your footprint on the Earth?

1.We use cold water when possible.Waste Less Water. Take shorter showers, turn the faucet off while brushing teeth, do only full loads of dishes and laundry.
2.Hanging clothes on the line to dry.
3.Buy organic or locally-grown food. Eating locally-grown, seasonal or organic foods supports local producers.
 4.Combine several errands into one trip to save time and money.
5.We walk places instead of driving when weather permits. Biking is also fun.
6.Turn off those lights when not in use.
7.Combine several errands into one trip to save time and money. Make sure your tires are aligned and inflated properly to reduce emissions.
8.Recycle - paper, plastic, glass bottles, cardboard, and aluminum cans. If you’re not already doing this, bring your own bags to the store with you. 

How do you share your Eco-friendly choices with those around you?

I share Eco-friendly tips and articles on social-media, through my farming groups, blogging and however I can get the word out. I like to share samples of Eco-friendly products with others when possible.

1.Plant a tree, shrub, flowering bush, or a garden. Give a tree, or shrub as a gift.
2.Take a bag and collect trash when going for a walk in woods. Along streams and rivers is a good place to start.
3.Buy and use green cleaning products.
4.Use green and environmentally friendly products for your pets to help reduce the emission of poisons and toxins.
5.Start a compost pile for gardening. Reduce waste and reuse valuable organic matter by starting your own compost pile.
6.Use solar ovens. Solar ovens are easy to use and will save you a great deal of money on energy bills. Since the fuel source is free, you can use it as much as you want without any guilt. These are fun to use, and really do work.
7.Community Supported Agriculture is a great way to bring farm-fresh ingredients directly to consumers. Participants sign up for a share, and every week, they pick up a box filled with local, seasonal food from a nearby farm(s). It’s delicious, nutritious, and sustainable, so see if there’s a CSA near you.  
8.Leave messages for family members/roommates on a reusable message board.
9. Those packing peanuts. Drop off at a local packing, shipping or moving store.
10.Non-GMO. Say no to GMO products.

Get your family involved by asking for specific changes in everyone's habits!

Visit Happy Mothering and Crunchy Farm Baby to learn more about participating in next month’s Natural Living Blog Carnival! Please take some time to enjoy the posts our other carnival participants have contributed:
