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!

108432 Are you tired of PLAIN balsamic vinegar on your salad?  I tried the Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar ($10.00) as a dip at a home sampling and fell in LOVE.  The strawberries enhance the natural sweetness of balsamic vinegar.  The reduced strawberry vinegar goes particularly well in already sweet applications.  I use it as a dressing on my salad with a little extra virgin olive oil and as a low call dip for roasted veggies.
