Pasta Chips

Yes, they’re a thing…

We love chips; we love pasta - ok who doesn’t? - so it’s fitting that we love, love, LOVE Pasta Chips.

The new snack was conceived by Jerry Bello who is the force behind a slew of health-conscious snacks including Sensible Portions, Pita Bites, and Veggie Straws. The idea for Pasta Chips came to him while enjoying a meal in Tuscany and while they taste similar to a Wheat Thin, these chips (about 120 calories per serving and have 60% less fat than regular potato chips), are made with semolina flour and oven-baked. Fittingly they also look like a ravioli.

Each of the five flavors is inspired by [...]

Botan: 100% Soluble Vegeteble Protein Drink

The first of its kind

An innovative plant-based beverage, called Botan, has just launched and it delivers 12 grams of soluble vegetable protein and vitamin goodness with just 110 calories. This is a great alternative to those chemical-latent protein powders so many men and women drink and an especially fantastic option for vegetarians. It’s the first 100% soluble vegetable protein beverage- just one bottle contains 25% of the recommended daily protein intake and it comes in three flavors: Pineapple Coconut, Cherry Tomato, and Strawberry Cucumber.

We love a scoop (ok a few scoops…), of peanut butter to get our protein fix, but this [...]

Hamilton Beach’s Brewstation Coffee Maker

Nothing to spill, break or burn

Hamilton Beach’s Brewstation Coffee Maker line’s motto is “nothing to spill, break or burn,” a motto which any mother of small children can appreciate! Now we know that coffee gets a lot of flack, but not only are we not willing to give up our morning caffeine boost, it may have a ton of health benefits. In fact one researcher called coffee “more healthful than tea.” Why? Well among other things it has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke, ease muscle pain, improve memory, keep you regular, and reduce the risk of certain diseases. Not bad if you ask us.

While there are countless option for coffee makers - and yes we do love capsules, but they are just so darn expensive - we love Hamilton Beach’s affordable yet effective line. They have a variety of machines available and all offer convenient one-hand dispensing without a conventional glass carafe. There’s no pouring or spills, and nothing fragile to break and replace. The machines also have a keep-warm heater for those times where we get caught up doing who knows what [...]

Five Mistakes You’re Making in the Shower

Showers aren’t as straight forward as you think

Odds are at least one step in your well-meaning shower routine unintentionally leaves your skin or hair worse for wear. For anyone who’s ever gotten that dry, tight feeling, an itchy scalp, irritation or redness after a shower, these five common shower mistakes are likely culprits that unintentionally strip skin of oils and throw the skin’s pH balance out of whack. Fortunately, the fixes are simple! Spending five minutes to optimize your cleaning routine makes can leave your body balanced and refreshed. Here’s a look at some tips we got from SebamedUSA:

Mistake #1: Overdosing on Shampoo. Ninety-three percent of the country’s adults shampoo almost daily, according to market research firm Mintel. But so much washing strips hair’s natural oils, drying and weakening the strands and irritating the scalp. Dermatologists lathering up just 3 to 4 times per week (or less!) with just a dime sized dollop of soap free shampoo, and only rinsing hair on other days. If you can’t resist washing daily, make sure to choose a pH balanced formula like Sebamed Scalp Activating Shampoo ($14.99), as balanced formulations which won’t strip hair of oils.

Mistake #2: Washing with Soap and Hot Water. They may seem innocent, but traditional soap bars can have a pH of up to 9, leaving skin dry, tight and vulnerable to damage. Ditch the soap and switch to a soap-free cleansing bar or soap-free milky cleanser for both the face and body, like Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash ($19.95).

Mistake #3: A Sudsy Shave. Shaving with foam and water alone may protect from cuts, but foam isn’t protective enough to defend against razor burn and redness, especially if you’re using hot water. If skin is dry, try using your hair conditioner as an alternative shaving aid. It hydrates and sinks deep within skin to prevent nicks, cuts and razor burn, but its smooth consistency won’t clog your razor, as long as you rinse.

Mistake #4: Using Your Regular Body Wash on Intimate Areas. The intimate area’s ideal pH is actually different than the rest of our skin (3.8 as opposed to 5.5) and regular soaps and showers, certain clothing, diet and even sex all affect that balance. Stock your shower with a product like Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash ($14.95) that’s specifically formulated at pH 3.8 to balance the delicate pH down there, making it easy [...]
