Science fiction? Nope. Just freeze dried goodness – Frontier Soups review & special discount!

Thanks to my lovely friends at Moms Meet I was lucky enough to try some Frontier Soups. Their lovely gift set included – Chicken Noodle, Red Pepper Corn Chowder, Tomato Basil, Tortilla Soup, Alphabet Soup and Kale & Quinoa Vegetable Soup. All the soups they sent me (except the Alphabet Soup) are certified Gluten Free! All Frontier Soups are free of preservatives, use non-GMO corn and even contain some organic ingredients.

We’ve all seen em at the grocery store – those little cellophane bags with tiny dried veggies. I’m not a soup aficionado or anything but they just seem like a lot of work right?? I couldn’t have been more wrong. How long does it usually take you to make dinner? I swear with all the prep work and my kids distracting me it feels like hours. With Frontier Soups you’re looking at 15-20 minutes TOPS. Add some warm bread, a small salad. DONE.

My kids are hard pressed to eat soup. They’re 4 & 5. They don’t get it. Do we drink it? Do we chew it? confusing! I made the Alphabet Soup and nothing changed. They totally thought it was awesome that it had letters..score! However it wouldn’t be cool enough for them to actually eat it. Anyways.. I was psyched because it was DELISH AND ALL MINE.

Vegetable Soup -

1 package Frontier Alphabet Soup mix

6 cups chicken broth

2 cups cooked chicken

You can add what you like which is the best part! I’m usually wary of soups because of their high salt content. Ask me what the Alphabet Soup mix has? 30mg. (Did I mention they don’t add any salt to their mixes?) Not sure how salty most canned soups are? Head to your pantry… right.. now!

…..

………

Do you believe me now??! 500mg or higher I bet! This doesn’t mean I don’t want ANY salt. So what I did was add half no sodium stock and half normal stock. For the cooked chicken part.. I grabbed some off my local salad bar. Could it be any easier? And there isn’t any sacrificing of flavor. All the soups I tried were perfectly and expertly seasoned. Those ladies at Frontier sure know what they’re doing. Check out their story.

My total favorite – Red Pepper Corn Chowder. With this soup you start with a broth and then a little cream. The best part – it totally has some heat. I added some kielbasa to mine so it was this great smoky, spicy flavor. OMG I need to buy more STAT!

The Ladies at Frontier were nice enough to extend a discount to my readers and Green Moms Meet members. You can order the same 6 pack I received for $28.80. That’s savings of $7.20!!

Day 1 : Aveda Naturally Straight

I’m not gonna lie.. Blow drying my hair is THE worst. I loathe it. Mostly because my hair gets wavy and slightly frizzy. In order to tame the mess I have to use my flat iron.

Heat + Heat = Dry!!

The lovely folks at She Speaks and Aveda sent me Aveda’s new product Naturally Straight.

From their website:
*After 5 consecutive applications of naturally straight, hair will stay straight for up to 3 washes*

Ok here are my results from my FIRST use. FIRST! Oh and did I tell you I just used the blow dryer? No flat iron!!

Zevia soda – refreshing drink or cocktail must have???

zero calories + naturally sweetened + delicious= trifecta of awesomeness!

zevia-logo1

Thanks to my friends at Moms Meet I got to try Zevia zero calorie soda in some pretty awesome flavors! Black Cherry, Ginger Root Beer, Mountain Zevia, Grape, Cream Soda, Orange, Lemon Twist and Grapefruit Citrus to name a few. What I didn’t realize was that they make almost 15 DIFFERENT flavors.

zevia-productHands down my favorites were Grape & Grapefruit Citrus. I have ALLLLWAAAAYYYY been a grape soda fanatic and minus heading to our local soda shack you can’t find anything that doesn’t have everything TERRIBLE about regular soda – artificial everything, high fructose corn syrup etc etc.

pssssst. Can I tell you a secret.. ? Can I trust you..?

These sodas are important to keep in your pantry. What? Did you just ask ‘WHY?’

Because. Like every other parent out there.. when the kids go to bed.. what do you want to do more than anything in the world? (remember that this is a family friendly blog.. minds out of the gutters people!)

MAKE COCKTAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are many variations. My favorite recipe:

matchingmummies-stress-relieving-tasty-beverage

2oz Tequila (2oz is for a normal day, 4oz is preferred)

1/2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice

Combine, add ice, top with Zevia Grapefruit Citrus soda

(you’re going to thank me later)

Have I not shown you the ways of Zevia soda yet? Here’s some other game changers:

*This soda contains no calories, sugar or artificial sweeteners.

*Zevia Zero Calorie Soda is sweetened naturally with a unique blend
of high purity Stevia (grown right here in the US!) and Monk Fruit.

*It’s totally Kosher, Vegan, and Gluten-Free! totally.
