KIND Healthy Snacks Launches New Grains, Fruit & Nut Clusters

KIND Healthy Snacks Launches New Grains, Fruit & Nut Clusters

I’m a snacker – I’m not one to sit and eat breakfast or lunch so aside from dinner I rarely sit down for a proper meal. The problem is that most “healthy” snacks really aren’t that healthy, especially because most of them are hugely addictive so you can easily end up consuming 600-plus calories between meals without even noticing.

Who Needs Bread? Try These High Fiber Crisps Instead

Who needs bread? Well, me…I’m a bread addict. The hardest part about spending two weeks in Japan was that most meals did not come with bread (old habits die hard!).

It’s no secret that big companies more often than not try to cut costs with no regard to the effects on the planet or even the consumer as long as it helps their bottom lines. That’s exactly why a few years ago a number of them started using plastic exfoliating beads in their facial and body scrubs – versus natural products like coffee grounds or nuts.

Lierac Magnificence Eyes Precision Eye Care

Time and time again we’re told to treat the delicate skin around our eyes in a gentle manner. Unfortunately sometimes when you’re half asleep applying your eye cream at 6AM with no time to spare can be easier said than done, which is why I love eye products that don’t require actually touching your eye area.

Yes To Carrots Launches Yes to Coconuts

Hands down my favorite drugstore brand is Yes to Carrots especially now that drugstore brands seem to be either super cheap and chemically filled or fairly pricey (at least in NYC where more and more drugstores are carrying higher end brands). Yes to Carrots stays true to their natural philosophy and continues to deliver superfood-inspired skincare products.
