Wildtree is today’s product spotlight.   What is Wildtree?

Wildtree offers the highest quality herbs, spices and culinary blends that are free of preservatives, additives, fillers and promote a healthier lifestyle. We believe in the value of making cooking a quicker, easier, more healthful project for those who are short on time. 

Leslie Montie never dreamed she would become the founder of a company that helps families enjoy great tasting, nutritious meals in minutes.  Leslie’s two young children had medical conditions that require special dietary restrictions so she began her search for healthy alternatives. Her sincere desire to help others was the inspiration that led her to found Wildtree in 1996.

  I was looking for a different kinds of salad dressing.  Low in Weight Watcher point value and where a little went a long way.  I found it in the Beet Citrus Dressing.  Just 1 SP for 4 TBSP.  It is more than enough to cover a BIG salad and tastes great with my kale. It is deep, earthy beets pair with sweet orange and acidic white vinegar to make a nuanced dressing that will enhance everything from salad to pizza to a marinated steak! Makes a salad for 6, six times.

AboutCoconut_glam2 I had heard AMAZING things about organic coconut oil but I was afraid that it would test like coconut.  The only way that I like coconut is in my pina coladas.  Most places had LARGE jars and were a bit pricey.  This size jar was perfect and was only $9.00!  Coconut Oil can be used for oven roasting, pan frying, and in place of butter in many baking recipes. I didn’t find it to have any taste or change the flavoring when I cooked but I know they say it can give food an “exotic taste”.  Maybe our taste buds are just a little OLD!  Here are some health facts about Coconut Oil:

  • Coconut oil is 86.5% saturated fatty acid. 
  • 58.1% of the saturated fatty acids are medium chain fatty acids 1 which compose medium-chain-triglycerides (MCTs). 
  • As part of a balanced diet, plus exercise, using coconut oil in the place of a selection of other fats or oils has been shown to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity.

  I wasn’t sure how I was going to use this.  The suggestion was combine it with oil for dipping but I’m not a big fan of the bread/oil combo.  So I decided to use it on my roasted veggies.  OMG!  This with some olive oil was amazing!

I was not paid for this review, these are all products that I have used or use.  Click HERE to check out more AWESOME products.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Saturday Spotlight: Angel of the Word

Today’s Saturday Spotlight is on a local business run by a friend of mine, Cress.  I bought one of these as a gift for my mom for Christmas.  She loved it and everyone she showed it to thought it was AWESOME.  Not the usual “trinket” but something which conveys a special message to the one receiving the gift.

“Angel of the Word” is made of recycled prayer books and stands approximately 10 inches high.  They are the perfect gift for those “special celebrations” as well as an “every day” gift to let someone know that you care.  Here is information direct from their website:

Unique Gifts are Memorable…
The creation of our “Angel of The Word” figurines was inspired by the desire to re-purpose the beautiful Magnificat monthly prayer books once they became outdated. I felt they were too special to be thrown away…and in sharing this Angel with others, I have found that I was not alone in how I felt…as it was not long before I became the recipient of these recycled prayer books via the thoughtful donations of those who desired to see more angels this side of Heaven.

The original “Angel of The Word” was created for family and friends as Christmas gifts in 2011. My husband suggested the verse: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us…”

Only in late September of this year, was I prompted to make more of these angels…and the greetings / verses have grown in number and, as with God’s Word, the possibilities are endless.

Stop by her website and check it out.  Don’t see a message you would like, let her know.  She is AWESOME at finding things to fit your special need.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
