Udi’s…Review

Have you heard of Udi’s gluten free foods?  I have seen them in my grocery store, but have never tried them until now.  I don’t have an allergy to gluten but I try to watch my gluten intake while following a clean diet.

Udi’s Foods has a great selection of food that is available for those that need to eat a gluten free diet.  I was surprised at how many options they offer!   They make bagels, breads, buns, granola, cookies, muffins, cinnamon rolls, pizza, muffin tops, and brownies that are all made with the freshest, gluten free ingredients. On their website, Udi’s gluten free foods, they offer incredible recipes  for those that are eating gluten free or wish to live a gluten free lifestyle. The site also offers forums and chats to find out more information about this specific type of diet.

I received a shipment of various products from Udi’s to try out.  I received bagels, buns, muffin tops, granola, and chia bread.  My favorite item was the blueberry oat muffin tops!  They were so good – I would have never guessed they were gluten free.  I like that they came individually packaged so you could take them with you.

My second favorite was the granola.  It was awesome!

The bagels and buns were a little different than what I am used to.  Not in a bad way, just different.  I found that I liked them best toasted.  The Millet-Chia Bread really excited me – I felt like I was eating something that tasted great and was super healthy for me.  What a win-win!

I would totally recommend Udi’s to anyone who can’t eat gluten…but also to those that can have gluten.  They are delicious & healthy.  If you have one member of your family that can’t eat gluten there is no need to buy separate foods for them.  You can all eat Udi’s together.  Udi’s is available at Kroger, Publix, Whole Foods and some Wal-Marts.

I received products for reviewing purposes. All my opinions are my own and not swayed by outside sources.

No Orange Fingers.

What a great idea this is!  A lotion applicator…allows you to apply lotion without getting it on your hands.  This would be awesome for applying sunless tan lotion, right?  You can find it at Ulta for $6.  I’m getting one today.

You Know I Love A Great Monogram…and a great cookie!

I love this monogram cookie stamp!  What a great gift this would make for anyone – especially a newlywed.  I might just get one for myself…then no one would think my cookies are store bought.  Not bad for only $23

As seen on Pinterest…

I have seen this little guy all over Pinterest!  It is being pinned like crazy.  What is it? A 20-ounce Crock-Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer, which warms leftovers, soups, oatmeal and just about anything in amazing slow cooker fashion. But…it is portable!    A dishwasher safe food vessel with sealable lid easily gets your food to and from home allowing you to leave the Crock-Pot Lunch Crock base at work so it’s ready to plug in and warm your food at a moment’s notice. Amazing portability features include outer lid, cool-touch exterior and cord storage.  This would be great for lunch at the office or a dorm room.  I love it!  For about $20 it might save you some lunch money too!

Safety First!

I love this little safety device!  Not only can you lock your precious treasures (your iPhone) inside this portable safe, you can also strap it to an object like the good old fashioned bicycle locks.  The cable comes out and you can strap it to your desk or other fixed object.  Also, you can charge your electronic device while they are on lock-down.  I can think of a few great ways to use this:

 

  • At the gym – I am always worried that my wallet & phone are going to disappear while I am logging my miles.  I would strap this little guy to a fixed object.
  • Studying at the library – for you students who fall asleep at your desk while studying…you never know who is going to come along and grab your stuff while you are grabbing some zzzz’s.
  • On a cruise – keep it strapped down in your room with your passport inside.

It has a set your own combination lock that I think is awesome too.  This little guy sure packs a punch for only $19!

Ball Claw – Genius!

Soccer season has started back up – yay!  During the off season I was on a mission to control the soccer gear hanging around our house.  Especially the soccer balls that seem to be taking over the garage, coat closet, and Riley’s room!  She has practice balls, special signed balls, and old soccer balls that she refuses to throw away.  What do I do with all of them??  Thankfully, I found the Ball Claw.  And it solved my problem.

The Ball Claw is a great way to organize all of your sports balls.  It is a claw like holder that mounts to the wall  (the mounting hardware is included)- then you just pop your ball into the holder and it is there to stay.  When you need to use the ball, simply pull it out of the “claw”.  Not only do they hold her soccer balls, they also preserve the life of the ball.  Love it!

We put some up in the garage to hold soccer, football and basketballs.  I also put some in her room to hold her commemorative and signed soccer balls.  They look really great hanging on her wall.

They are very inexpensive (around $12 each) and come in 4 different styles – Soccer, Basketball, Football and Volleyball. You can find them online here or at The Container Store.
