Let's get smart about Diabetes and Cheerios®

Let's get smart about Diabetes and Cheerios®

Having a loved one diagnosed with diabetes is hard words to hear,And when it comes to my loved one I want to do the best I can for them and help them manage his diabetes , not only making sure that he takes his medication but to make sure that he eats right too , to control and manage it, And to start off with breakfast I have him begin with a bowl of Cheerios® followed by some fruit, I feel that Cheerios® cares and wants to help people with Diabetes. I know I do my very best but I can’t do it alone it takes patience and effort to help some one manage their diabetes. I did not think that he would eat Cheerios® but once I told him that it is okay to eat and won’t affect or mess with his diet that I have in place he was more open to eating them, So raise those spoons and get started and get smart .Cheerios®

A Mountain of Clothes deserves Purex Crystals Mountain Breeze

A Mountain of Clothes deserves Purex Crystals Mountain Breeze

With kids comes clothes and with that comes laundry and I have at least a ” Mountain” of laundry come the end of the week, With one child that wears uniforms and then she comes home and puts on play clothes, but like with most kids it’s just not going out side oh no they seem to be attracted to sand, leaves , dirt etc.. My son will find away to get his clothes dirty and with that comes odors , funky smells and all around teenage boy smell. My girls are no exception my youngest has a habit of spilling what she eats on her clothes and mostly it is Milk and at the end of the day it has one of those smells and then there is the teenage daughter that prefers to lather or bathe her self in perfume and what not, So when it comes to Laundry day which is usually the entire weekend those “smells” are not so great and then there is the bedding ie.. blankets, sheets pillow case for all us and they of course trap in smells from body odor, dog odor . Into the washer they go now normally I would use liquid fabric softener but alas there is a newer concept out that involves a “crystal” like that gets added to the wash that dissolves while washing laundry and then when dried the scent is carried out , Does it last after being dried you ask ? Why yes ,Yes it does I used Purex Crystal Mountain Breeze on last weeks load of laundry and I could still detect it through out the week,It is a simple concept really, Just add your desired amount with the pre-lined cap that is provided and add to the wash as the water in running to fill up your machine and that is it.DSC01639Purex Mountain Breeze crystalsDSC01641

Fiber One Fruit Flavored Snacks ( Review)

Fiber One Fruit Flavored Snacks ( Review)

When I hear the word FIBER I think of Breads and grains and all that stuff you find in health food stores. But now as I get a little older and am told to eat more Fiber and so is my husband, also with him being a diabetic and other health issues his Dr. , Has told him to increase his Fiber but like most he is stubborn and will only eat what he feels like eating, But Now I’m thinking well If people our age need more FIBER in our diet what about my kids, Should they also need more in their diet too?. Well I have picky eaters and if you tell them or they even catch on that something may be healthy for them, Well they may as well turn up their noses and proceed to stick out their tongue with much distaste , Well Now Fiber One® has come out with a very great concept that is sure to please even the most hesitant eater/ snacker But the best part is that you can taste the fruit flavors in them, the taste is so mouthwatering and so delicious and no weird after taste. I gave them to my kids to try with out first telling them what brand they were and their first response was ” Wow these taste really good” Then when I showed them that they were from the Fiber One® brand they were is awe. So I guess from now on these will be purchased and replacing other brands of fruit snacks And if you would like to learn more about Fiber One® Please head over to their website or Fiber One® Facebook page Fiber one fruit snacks
