WB Kitchen’s Paleo Snacks Review and Giveaway

Friday, January 23rd, 2015


Another blogger friend of mine talked to me recently about WB Kitchens and their paleo snacks.  I was intrigued! It’s hard where I live to find snacks that I don’t end up making myself that stick to the paleo and primal diet. I have to drive nearly an hour to the closest Whole Foods…needless to say, that doesn’t happen often.bigcityburrito

When I wrote to them, I was pleasantly surprised they were a Colorado based company. This coming May will be three years since I left a piece of my heart in Colorado.  My husband’s job moves us quite a bit, and Colorado was one of my favorite places we’ve lived. It was a health food mecca, and eating clean, healthy organic food was so easy.  It was everywhere.  There’s practically a Whole Foods on every corner…ok, maybe not every corner. When WB Kitchens introduced themselves to me as a small company (love!), based out of Ft. Collin’s Colorado (LOVE!!)  I almost asked him to send me a burrito from Big City Burrito while he was sending me some of his products to try (not health food, haha!).  

A few days after emailing, I received a huge box of samples.  I couldn’t believe it.  My kids drooled over them, too.  Brownie, coconut shortbread cookies, honey nut bars and then my favorite, the Java Mocha bar.  It was hard for me to snap a few pictures before keeping them from digging in.  Seriously look at this box!


The ingredients they use are the highest quality. Raw Unfiltered Honey from the a Colorado based supplier called Beeyond the Hive. I love that they use local honey. They label each bar if it is paleo, SCD or GAPS friendly which most are. Their facility is gluten free and they never process soy, dairy, gluten or any grains at all. Check out the nutrition information label. Most of the calories on here come from FAT. Perfect for those high fat, paleo dieters. The fat content also comes from coconut oil, which is great. Coconut oil is a great source of MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides), it’s easily digested, and improves the absorption of fat soluble vitamins.



The only flours they use in their bars are organic almond flour and coconut flour, completely paleo/primal diet friendly. The bars and cookies aren’t super sweet, so if you’ve been eating a paleo diet for a while I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.  They’re a sweet treat, with out being sickeningly sweet.  It’s just right.



Currently they are working at getting the word out about their products. You can find them right now at Whole Foods, and other natural foods retailers.  Why wait for that though when you could win an entire box for your family to try? I’ve partnered with WB Kitchen’s to bring these right to you in my latest giveaway!  Fill out the entry form below for a chance to win a box of your own goodies!

My TrueMoon

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

A few weeks ago I was approached by Shelli Wright the founder of My TrueMoon. My True Moon is a company that not only offers organic tampons, but also offers girls in particular real information regarding their cycle. I have to admit, as a nearly natural mom, I hesitate when it comes to tampons.  There’s been so much bad press lately when it comes to them. It’s nice to learn there’s a safer alternative.



I had a few reservations about this review. It’s out of my comfort zone to talk about tampons, my cycle, and my lady parts. Some ladies can scream vagina from the top of their lungs, and I admire them for their pride. Not me though! My daughter is 8, and I haven’t had much of a conversation with her either. Since girls tend to begin their period between 9-12, I took this time to talk to her with the help of the starter kit. The pamphlet in the starter kit is lovely and empowering. The pamphlet is well written and gives you ideas of how to have this conversation. There’s also a pretty case included you or your girl can store their organic tampons in.


So why organic tampons anyway? Well, to answer that you need to take a look at what’s in conventional tampons. According to Women’s Health the list is a bit scary. Since coming on the market, the fiber ratios have varied to provide comfort, protection against leaking, odor control and absorbency. Fibers that have been mixed with cotton include cellulose (think tree bark?) collagen, polyester, polyurethane (ew?), polyvinyl alcohol, and asbestos (OMG!). This doesn’t include the chemicals that have been used to bleach the fibers such as chlorine, dioxin, and furan, all three have been linked to toxic shock syndrome. Plus, the government says there are NO levels of dioxin exposure that can be considered safe.

If you’re still using conventional tampons, maybe it’s time to make a switch. Shelli and I have collaborated to offer my readers a starter kit giveaway to help you on your path.

The starter kit includes 16 organic tampons, their carrying case, a dry erase tracking chart, and the 24 page booklet Shelli Wright, and her partner Anea Bogue.
