Gorton’s Grilled Gluten-free Fish is a go-to for Dinners!

During the school year, it seems that we are on the go.  On our way to school, from school, soccer, swim, music and then social events, too!  With all the running, sometimes it feels nearly impossible to make sure that the girls (and me and the hubby!) are getting quality meals.  While many turn to quick frozen meals, or pre-prepared proteins to make meal prep faster, that was not an option for us most nights due to many not having gluten-free options, or the ones that were gluten-free, being price prohibitive. With that in mind, I was really excited to find out that Gorton’s Seafood now has a grilled gluten-free fish products that are not only delicious, but affordable, too!  I received some Gorton’s Seafood products in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think?

When I heard that Gorton’s Seafood was now offering gluten-free fish products, I was really excited.  Gorton’s Seafood was one of my favorites when it came to quick and easy meal prep, but when Miss LadyBug and I had to change our diets, that meant saying goodbye to some of our favorite brands.  This grilled gluten-free fish line includes tilapia, salmon, haddock and fillets.  Unfortunately for me, the stores near us were sold out of the haddock, but I did stock up on the tilapia and have to say, that I am loving this!  The Signature Grilled Tilapia is so versatile.  You quickly and easily prepare it in your oven or microwave and at just 80 calories, will have very little guilt afterward!  The grilled gluten-free fish fillets made my nights so much easier when I knew I just needed to throw together some rice and a veggie or throw it on top of a salad!  The best part?  Even the girls liked it!  The fish was flavorful, flakey and texture-wise, delightful!  I have already picked up several more boxes to keep on hand for quick meals!  So for a great price, you can get gluten-free fish, no MSG and amazing flavor without artificial flavors, fillers or colors – awesome!

Artisan Scents Lavender Bath Gift Set Review Reduce Stress and more!

I love going to the spa.  Unfortunately, my bank account and schedule do not allow for that in cost or time.  So I started looking for ways to bring spa experiences home to find a better way to relax at home and reduce my stress level.  My favorite way is by soaking in the bathtub.  The trick to a good, relaxing soak that makes you feel good is to find quality bath products that make you feel luxurious, while in your own bathroom!  I received a Lavender Dead Sea Bath Set from Artisan Scents in exchange for my honest opinion.

What did I think?

What you use in your bath water can really make a difference to how you feel when you get out.  You can choose an uplifting scent, something relaxing or soothing or even something to help with illness!  When I am really in the mood to unwind and am looking forward to a restful night’s sleep, I turn to lavender.  Lavender has long been lauded for its stress relieving properties and this set from Artisan Scents will help you not only achieve relaxation, but healthier skin, too!

This beautifully wrapped gift set comes with three bath-enhancing products, as well as a sachet of lavender that is perfect for your dresser drawers, or to slip under your pillow for some added aromatherapy!  The three products you can expect are: the Dead Sea Mineral Salt, the Dead Sea Mineral Body Scrub, and the Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask.  This set has quickly become one of my favorites – not only for stress relief, but for leaving my skin soft, silky and super moist!  The Dead Sea Mineral Salts are great for just a hot soak in the tub, they leave a light lavender fragrance on your skin that smells natural and wonderful.  The Dead Sea Mineral Scrub is a great way to exfoliate your skin and leave you feeling fresh and clean!
