5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy and Delicious Fusion Drink, November 21, 2014
If you are wanting to get more vegetables in your diet, these fusion drinks which combine fruit juices with vegetable juices are a savvy way to do so. This peach mango mixes the juice of sweet potatoes, yellow tomatoes, and yellow carrots with the juice of white grapes, apples, oranges, peaches and mango puree. You really taste the peach-mango flavor with the other subtle flavors as nuances.

It is 100% juice with no ADDED sugar. However, it does include natural fruit sugar, as all juices do, which is part of the fruit juice - 26g sugar in a one cup serving. What I like to do is use about 1/8 cup - which would be about 3.5g of fruit sugar and 20 calories - and put it in a cup of seltzer with ice to make a refreshing and healthy drink. One cup of this fruit-vegetable fusion drink is 120 calories, but you can dilute it with seltzer to give it fizz and less calories for a refreshing, healthy and tasty beverage. It provides 100% of daily vitamin C and 20% vitamin A in one serving.

It's a great concept to mix fruit and vegetable juices in a healthy fusion drink like this which is naturally delicious. Of all the V8fusion drinks, this is one of my favorites. Mango and peach together are so refreshing and rather tropical tasting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous to the Younger Set, November 21, 2014
This review is from: Amelia Bedelia (Hardcover)
My kindergarten students loved the character Amelia Bedelia. One day I dressed up and acted like her as she acts in the story and they giggled away. This is a fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you want sweet, sometimes you want salty, November 21, 2014
Sometimes you want sweet, sometimes you want salty, sometimes you want cheese or a kick of jalapeno. Sometimes you want a chip and sometimes popcorn sounds tasty. This Popcorners Popped Corn Chips combine all four wants into six flavors of light chips with great texture. The texture is kind of a bubbly, quilted texture which enhances the chips' appeal.

The kettle flavor is just the right amount of sweetness to me so it's not overpowering, yet you can taste a bit of saltiness, too. The sea salt is just a great salted chip. The jalapeno has a nice spicy kick. The buttery tastes like the pre-buttered popcorn. The white cheddar tastes like white cheddar popcorn flavor. And the chips are fairly healthy, as they are lowfat, low sugar and low salt. The sea salt flavor tastes like salted popcorn, the white cheddar flavor tastes like popcorn with cheese sprinkled on top and the jalapeno is a spicy chip with a bite.

Ingredients listed on one of the bags for an example: enriched Yellow Corn {Yellow Corn, Niacin, Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid}, Sunflower Oil, Sugar, Sea Salt. The oil used is a healthy oil and like the use of sea salt instead of regular salt.

These are air popped with real corn. One bag has 140 calories and is low sodium (110 mg or 5% DV) and low sugar (3g), so they are relatively guilt-free. There are no artificial additives or preservatives and they are gluten free.

These mix of chips are great to serve at a party for something a little different. There is a flavor to appeal to every taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Healthy Crunchy Cocoa Treat - Great for Smoothies, Iced Mocha Coffee Drinks etc., November 19, 2014
These raw cacao nibs - or "food of the Gods" - arrived today and I added them to my iced mocha cocoa coffee drink. I am not a god, but they are a delicious addition to my food repertoire. They add great texture and a bit of chocolate cocoa flavor which I like as an added flavor.

They have a very subtle cocoa flavor which would be great in milkshakes, vanilla yogurt, ice cream and anything you might put chocolate chips in. As I've eliminated regular sugar in my diet (had blood sugar scores in the diabetic range and lowered them to normal by eliminating sugar - using stevia or coconut sugar as a natural sweetener instead - and a healthier lifestyle with more exercise etc.), am delighted to have these unsweetened organic, raw cacoa nibs as a little treat.

They are cholesterol, sodium and sugar free. They are non GMO, vegan, gluten free and organic. One oz. is 130 calories and is 22% of your fat allowance. Imagine it's good fat but probably should be sparing with them if you're trying to lose weight. A nutritionist told me we need fat for our hair, skin and nails, but of the right kind. They have antioxidants and are a good source of magnesium and omega fatty acids say the company.

You can bake with these, too, when baking cookies, brownies, dessert bars or granola bars. They have a light crunch. Love the quality in Viva Labs products - especially enjoy their coconut sugar which I put on oatmeal and their coconut flour which make delicious muffins - and am happy to have these in my mix of healthy cooking ingredients.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Chip with a Kick, November 19, 2014
If you like the texture of popcorn in a chip and a cheesy jalapeno flavor with its kick, these chips provide all of these features. They are yummy and not high in fat or sodium. First, the texture: it's light, crunchy and kind of quilted. Great texture. As to flavor, it is a jalapeno cheese flavor with a kick. You will want to have something to drink to chase that spicy cheese flavor down.

These are fairly healthy chips - they are low in fat (9%), low sodium (6%), low sugar, no cholesterol and gluten-free. One serving (1.1 oz.) is 150 calories.

Great to serve on the side with a sandwich, salad or at a party. If you like popcorn, like chips that aren't greasy and like cheesy jalapeno flavor, you should love these chips.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic ~ Billy Baldwin, November 19, 2014
Many designers claim Billy Baldwin has had a great influence on their work. That is why this volume is important to the field of design. It goes into wonderful detail about Baldwin's life and is sprinkled with his quotes. Baldwin is very quotable and entertaining to read about. As designer Tom Britt said about Baldwin as quoted in this book, ""no one had more influence on interior decorating than Billy Baldwin."

Or Edward Lee Cave's summation: "Mr. Baldwin was the first influential decorator who was totally American in his outlook."
The author, Adam Lewis, writes that Baldwin would have been pleased with this.

Have to laugh at one of Baldwin's quotes in this book: "Cotton is my life." Great to have the lectures at the end of this book which are Baldwin's thoughts on decorating in his own words. If you are a fan of Baldwin, you should enjoy this book.
