Healthy Choice Snack Bar for Night Time Food Cravings

Details:  NightFood offers a satisfactory option to nighttime cravings.  Their chewy granola style bar is formulated to satisfy cravings on fewer calories.  They support better sleep, a healthier profile and help you feel satisfied.  They are offering people a better alternative to chips, cookies, ice cream etc.

#NightFood
Review:  My husband and I like to watch movies at night and since it is usually late, we're hungry as dinner was usually 4 hours earlier.  We like to snack during the movie, and have long since moved away from the traditional microwave popcorn.  However, we do get the munchies for the typical junk food now and then, and have noticed our weight creeping up.  NightFood came to the rescue.

These bars come in two flavors, Cookies n' Dreams, and Midnight Chocolate Crunch.  I wish they would offer a combo box.  We tried the Cookies n' Dreams, a standing favorite for my husband.  The first time we tried these bars, which are only 140 calories each, we had different reactions.  My husband was very satisfied and didn't eat anything else the rest of the night.  I, on the other hand, was ravenously hungry.  I couldn't stop eating.  We gave it another go several days later.  This time, my hunger was satisfied, as well as my husbands. And neither time did we have any problems sleeping afterwards.

Cookies n' Dreams
The Nightfood bars were not as tasty as a typical chewy granola bar, but it does offer half the calories.  It is made with Amaranth, Rolled Oats, Chicory, and Chocamine.  Each have a roll in keeping one satisfied, providing nutritious yet high fiber that doesn't interrupt blood sugar levels.

Right now, you can get a Free box of 6 to try out.  All you need to do is pay $4.95 S/H.  What a bargain. You can't go wrong.  Don't need to wait until nighttime to eat these.  Anytime you need a snack to tie you over this is the product to eat.  Don't wait.  Get your Free box today.  You can also order them from Amazon.

To get the trial box, the consumer signs up for our automatic shipment program, which actually gives a free box every month (buy 3, get the 4th free). The trial period is 14 days. If they cancel in that 14 day period, we take them off auto-ship. When we've tested this kind of program in the past, we see about 40% of the people cancel during the trial period. the other 60% stay on...some for a few months, and some for more than a year! (most people really LOVE the bars.)

These bars haven't actually hit the stores yet.  However, you can keep uptodate on all announcements by following Nightfood on Facebook.

Pros:  Does work to satisfy the craving to eat after one of these bars.  Did not interrupt our sleep pattern by keeping us awake from eating too much sugar.Contains 5 grams of Fiber and 6 grams of Protein.  My husband really liked them.

Cons:  Not quite as tasty as a chewy granola bar.  First bar I ate didn't work at all, but the others have since.

My Rating: Thumbs Up!

Details:  Syono Orthotic Shoe Inserts Plus Gel Insoles are a two for one product providing cushioning and support to alleviate pain throughout your body.  They absorb the shock your feet receive from everyday motion.
Bottom Side #insoles
When using Syono Orthotic Inserts/Insoles walking, running and standing become easier and less painful.  If you stand or walk on hard surfaces every day, or have constant foot and heel pain, be sure to get your very own inserts/insoles today.  You can purchase yours here at Amazon.

Review:  About a month ago, my husband was doing some yard work and ended up with swollen feet from wearing his boots.  His feet were swollen for about 2 1/2 weeks.  They were very painful, and the only thing he had done differently was to wear boots instead of shoes.

When this opportunity came up for us to try Syono Orthotic Shoes Inserts Plus Gel Insoles, we jumped at this chance to really see if they would make a difference.  These came at the perfect time.  We received them 2 days before we had planned another major workout in the yard, where he would be wearing his boots again.  The boots provide more protection to the toes than his gym shoes.

He placed the inserts in the boots.  Quickly realizing they needed to be cut down.  They come extra big so you can cut them to whatever size you desire.  Now he was ready to put them to the test.  We worked all day, and he did very similar projects.  The big test would be how his feet reacted after taking off the boots.

These inserts passed the test.  His feet were not sore.  His feet did not swell up.  He had the protection his feet needed, plus the shock absorption from the inserts to help his feet feel great.

Well, that wasn't enough.  My husband has a great pair of gym shoes, however, they are starting to wear out on the inside.  He placed these same Syono Orthotic Shoe Inserts in these shoes.  He wore these around all day doing various activities.  Where the heel was starting to break down in the actual shoe, these gel inserts provided the cushioning his feet needed.  He says he can go another six months at least with his favorite gym shoes because of the new inserts.
Top Side #insoles
If you find your feet needing more support in the shoes you are wearing, be sure to try these inserts out without further delay.  Your Feet will be Happy.

Pros:  Very supportive for the feet.  Absorb the shock when running or walking on hard surfaces.  Provided cushioning and a comfortable step to the feet.

Cons: May not be the perfect fit if you have very high arches.

My Rating:  A Big Thumbs Up!!!

Vitamin C Serum + Give Away

Details:  Dr. Song Vitamin C Serum contains 20% Vitamin C.  It includes Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Aloe Vera.  It has a smooth velvet finish on the skin that many other Vitamin C Serums cannot replicate.  It comes with a 365 day money back guarantee.  Dr. Song products are made in the USA and are FDA compliant. You can purchase yours here on Amazon.

Review:  I've said before that I usually have a reaction to any kind of Hyaluronic acid.  So why did I request another product that has this in it.  Well, to tell you the truth, the "Smooth Velvet Finish on the Skin" was what caught my attention.  I'm also partial to blue containers.
#drsong
Dr. Song Vitamin C Serum is just that. A Serum.  Not water. Not liquid that is similar to water. A Serum.  I'm not sure if it is due to the fact that aloe vera gel is the number 2 ingredient on the list, or if the way this was made makes the difference.  In any case, I like the serum.  I can place a few drops in the palm of my hand without it running all over.  When I apply it to my face I feel like I have more control rather than trying to clean up the drips from other Vitamin C Serums.  And like any other Vitamin C Serum it is not greasy.

Now, for the Hyaluronic Acid reaction.  Yes, my face broke out, again.  This time only on my chin, and this time it only lasted for about 5 days.  So, is my face adjusting to the hyaluronic acid, or is Dr. Song's product actually better?  I've gone back to trying another company's version of Vitamin C Serum with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera Gel, and my face broke out worse.  Believe me, I went back to Dr. Song's Vitamin C Serum after a few days.

Benefits of Vitamin C Serum include:

  • encouraging collagen production 
  • exfoliates and cleanses
  • helps remove fine lines and wrinkles 
  • great for those with acne or pimples
  • moisturizes and softens the skin

Routine for using the product:

  • Wash and cleanse skin
  • Tone Skin
  • Apply Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid
  • Apply moisturizer
I really like this product. My face feels smoother and softer.  My wrinkles are fading away. I feel like my face gets really clean, especially since I workout in my yard a lot, and can get real dirty doing that.  This is truly a serum in my opinion.


Give Away:  If you would like a chance to try this for yourself, be sure to sign up for the giveaway, by posting a comment below.

Pros:  I really like the thickness of this serum.  My face only broke out for about 5 days due to Hyaluronic acid instead of clearing up due to halting the use of the product.

Cons: Nothing.

Colon Cleanse and Detox

Details:  Premier Colon Cleanse and Detox Plus Weight Loss by Green Tea Life Sciences is an all natural, safe, gentle colon health and detoxification program.  Just take 2 caps a day for 2 weeks.

If you suffer from the following then this will help:  Constipation, chronic fatigue, acid reflux, gas, bloating, difficulty sleeping, diarrhea, low energy, a flabby tummy, or skin problems.

Your digestive system will be more effective and you will maintain regularity while increasing energy using The Amazing Miracle Cleanse.  Results begin within 12-24 hours depending on how much excess waste your intestines may have.

Review:  The Amazing Miracle Cleanse contains great herbs I am very familiar with and have used in the past.  Blended together they make a powerful product.  It contains Senna Leaf, Cascara Sagrada, Psyllium Husk, Flaxseed, Aloe Vera, L. Acidophilus, Licorice Root, and MCT oil.

I must say I was very surprised at how these products work together.  The first time I took 1 capsule, it took 8 hours to start working, and during the next 16 hours, I thought I was going to die.  Not really, but I was way bad off.  My stomach cramped up worse than I had ever had in my life.  I felt sick for 3 whole days.  I didn't dare take another capsule during this time.  This stuff was powerful.  By the time it started to go through me, I was amazed at how well the cleanse was from just 1 capsule, and I eat pretty decent.

#AmazingMiracleCleanse
Most might say I just experienced a healing crisis during this time.  Believe me, I have experienced those before, and this was more like food poisoning, and I know it wasn't that either.  My husband ate the same things I did, and he didn't get sick at all.

I waited almost another week before attempting to try another capsule just to make sure I didn't have some food poisoning or something like that.  The results were similar, but this time I didn't have the severe stomach cramps.  Now I don't dare get to far from a toilet.

I personally believe that for someone who doesn't eat very healthy, and wants to make a true life change and cleanse their system out, and stick with a regular healthy diet afterwards, this would be a great product.  For those who are already eating healthy, this may be too strong for you, as it was for me.  I definitely got cleaned out, but I didn't like the effects I experienced in doing so.  I was quite surprised that taking the ingredients individually work great for me, but the combination that The Amazing Miracle Cleanse offers is way too strong for my body.  Nonetheless, like I mentioned this still contains great products.

Pros:  It does work at cleansing the intestinal tract very well.

Cons:  Too strong for my personal body.  Maybe half a capsule would be better for me.

My Rating:  Thumbs Up for working, but Thumbs Down for the stomach cramps and sick feeling I felt.
