No Whey Chocolate Review

No Whey Chocolate Chocolate No No's

Raise your hand if you love chocolate. *raises both hands* I love dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. The only time I don’t like chocolate is with coconut.  *insert green nauseous emoji* Nikki, on the other hand, likes chocolate in moderation. She only likes white and milk chocolate.

Oftentimes when a person has an illness, there are physical signs that we can see. This could be hair loss, puffy cheeks, or weight loss/gain.

This Blondies mix has been hanging around in my kitchen for a while. We’d been meaning to make them and decided Mother’s Day was a pretty good reason.

Allergen-Free Easter Candy Review

Allergen-free Easter candy

Candy is often associated with holidays. Who doesn’t like candy? (This is rhetorical, BTW) If you have dietary restrictions, it can be hard to find candy that you can consume safely. There are plenty of candies without gluten or dairy, but they often have soy. A few months ago, I came across the Natural Candy … Read moreAllergen-Free Easter Candy Review
