As you know I am on a quest to help my fans remove as many Toxins as they can in 2014, so I am reviewing & giving away many products that are toxic free including snack items. So I am happy to be sharing yet another snack you & your family will enjoy that has made my Toxic Free 2014 list LÄRABAR. But not only will I be telling you about LÄRABAR’s I get to give one of my fans a variety pack for them to try them out too. And Homeschool moms I recommend LÄRABAR as a great snack for your kids to eat while doing school work.

Yes I have a favorite & so did my kids, beware though as I discovered they are so good you want to be greedy & not share. But not to worry I shared with my kids so we could all sample each flavor & pick our personal favorites. Check here & see if you see your favorite flavor.

I was sent 6 flavors for me & my family to try. My Favorite LÄRABAR was Cashew Cookie, it had the perfect blend of sweet & salty & healthy, this bar has only 2 ingredients, yes just 2! Cashews of course & dates. I know, I know you are sceptical, but just take a bite & you will agree, yum! My very close second favorite  LÄRABAR is Banana Bread, it taste just like an amazing homemade Banana bread the way it should taste, & with only 3 ingredients! Bananas, dates & almonds, yes really that is it, I think now you see how these are so pure & simple & a whole food that is perfect for anytime of the day. Add them to school lunches, take on a hike, take camping whatever, & as you can read on the LÄRABAR website they do not freeze so taking them hiking in the snow. (You know you want to put your snow gear on & go out with your new awesome LÄRABAR flavors just so you have an excuse to eat another 🙂 ).

LÄRABAR® is a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from whole food, each flavor contains no more than nine ingredients. Pure and simple, just as nature intended

And LÄRABAR gets an extra thumbs up from me for their wrappers & packaging being recyclable, & the boxes are made from recycled paperboard using wind energy, A+ & that is awesome.

All LÄRABAR wrappers are able to be recycled through our partnership with Terracycle. The LÄRABAR caddies/display boxes are made of 100% Recycled Paperboard and made using 100% Wind Energy.

But wait what about my kids? did they love LÄRABAR’s as much as I did? Well yes they did, each of them of course had their own favorites.

And my kids used comments like: ” I tried 2 of them & I liked them so much because they were not bad for me & they tasted just like the real thing”  & ” I could gobble up more of these yummy treats” And so much more yummy things they said.

These snack are the perfect healthy pure, simple, natural treat for you & your family, LÄRABAR’s are Non GMO, Gluten Free, Kosher, Raw, Plant based, Vegan, & Whole food for more information go here. As a homeschool mom these snacks are perfect for brain food for my kids.

Skinny Coconut oil Medicinal grade Extra Virgin 100% pure – Review – DIY uses

Skinny Coconut Oil is the only medicinal grade coconut oil available on the market.

I fell in love with Skinny Coconut oil!

Skinny coconut oil logoJoin me in My Skinny coconut oil love!

As my fans know I am totally Crazy for coconut oil, I take it, cook with it, oil pull with it, use on my skin & hair, as deodorant & to brush my teeth. And I am very picky about the coconut oil I use & so I am saying a lot when I say that Skinny coconut oil is now one of my 2 top favorites & yes I recommend it, as a matter of fact for oil pulling & taking I recommend Skinny coconut oil over all other brands (& I have tried a lot of them). Let me just say about Skinny, “I really, really like it 🙂 ” As a matter of fact I love Skinny coconut oil, how much do I love it? So much so I could sit & eat it off the spoon over & over again.

Why do I love Skinny Coconut oil & Why have I added it to my “Cheree’s Favorites” list? The quality is apparent from the first moment I opened the jar, but then I tasted it & it was the perfect coconut oil, creamy & smooth with just the right amount of coconut taste. I utter the words that it was eating “coconut pudding”, my daughter says that she is pretty sure the things I say about coconut oil are just strange lol. But why don’t you give it a try & decide for yourself just how amazing Skinny coconut oil is. If you have not been getting the desired results you were looking for from taking coconut oil & from oil pulling with coconut oil it can be the brand you are using, so I am glad to know of another great brand to tell my fans about trying.

I find myself totally worrying about running out of Skinny Coconut oil, yes it is that great & so I must add it to my “Family Wishlist”. I think I am addicted to the unique smoothness of Skinny. I even think it is very possible for those that gag during oi pulling that Skinny coconut oil & the smoothness could be the answer for some & that gagging issue. And anyone that has a hard time with the texture of coconut oil rather for taking or oil pulling you might want to give Skinny Coconut oil a try because as I keep saying the smoothness is amazing.
