Better For You Halloween Treats

   Looking for some better for you treats to enjoy on Halloween?


  Eat drink and be scary this Halloween with goodies you will absolutely be batty about! I have some wonderful suggestions of better for you treats and snacks that you can feel good about offering to the kids on Halloween. These delicious treats are made with ingredients that better quality and some are even organic and free of common allergens.




 You don’t have to worry about kids with allergies when you hand out Enjoy life foods Halloween Minis. These delicious bite-size minis don’t contain the 8 most common allergens. No scary ingredients, just scary good chocolate.  They are always free from Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Peanut, Tree Nuts, Egg, Soy, Fish, Shellfish, Casein, Sesame, Sulfites, and Potato.



  My favorite spooky treat is Alter Eco Truffles. These perfectly poppable chocolate truffles are organic and fair-trade. You will love that are made with sustainably-harvested Ecuadorian and Peruvian cacao that’s expertly-finished by Swiss chocolatiers. These truffles are made with pure organic coconut oil and I just love that the truffle wrappers are completely compostable.



Bare Pie Spice Apple Chips are a healthier twist to traditional Halloween candy. This new flavor of Bare apple chips is a guilt-free indulgence that is made with real apples and a fragrant blend of cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and a dash of sea salt.



  Keep it salty and sweet with PopCorners Sweetly Salted Caramel. These caramel flavored popped corn chips are sure to satisfy those ghosts and goblins. It does not get better than caramel. These chips are smooth and sweet. You will love that they contain no gluten, no trans fat, and no GMO’s. A new take on a classic taste in just one bag.

Oven-Dried Roasted Sundried Tomatoes

         Got an abundance of tomatoes?


  I usually make oven-dried roasted tomatoes in the summer when friends give me an abundance of tomatoes from their garden. Roasting the tomatoes in the oven are very similar to sun-dried tomatoes. I like to make oven roasted tomatoes year-round as they can be used in so many dishes. I usually make the roasted tomatoes with cherry or grape tomatoes but any size tomato will work.  These pretty tomatoes were calling my name at the store. I knew that I would not be able to eat them before they spoiled and I knew that they would taste so much better roasted in the oven. Oven-roasted tomatoes taste so sweet and I eat them like candy.


These tomatoes were the perfect size to slice in half. I just love the all the colors!


Oven-Dried Roasted Tomatoes
  oven 250 F degrees
cook time 4- 6 hours

Ingredients
   Tomatoes, any kind will work but I love using cherry or plum tomatoes

 All you do is wash the tomatoes and trim off the tops. For plum tomatoes, you just cut in half and bigger tomatoes slice in 1/4 inch or bigger slices. Place them on parchment paper or silicone baking sheets. Sprinkle with salt. Bake them until they are dried but still flexible. The texture is similar to a moist raisin or prune. I recommend trying a couple as they bake to see what texture and taste that you prefer. If you will be using them within 1-2 weeks then they can be on the moist side. If you are freezing them to use later, make them more dried like a raisin. The smaller ones will dry quicker so check them after 4 hours. Cool on plates. These are wonderful on pizza or in pasta dishes. I love to eat the dried tomatoes on crackers with cream cheese. Store them in the fridge if you will be enjoying them within 2 weeks or freeze them for longer storage. To freeze them, lay the tomatoes on baking sheets and freeze for several hours and then place them into a freezer bag.


This Family Enjoyed Harlem Globetrotters

             My first Harlem Globetrotters game was a blast.

                                     My family was provided tickets to attend the show.

   My family and I went to a Harlem Globetrotters game the other night and we had an awesome time. This was not a typical basketball game and I was so glad as I am not into sports. Instead, this was a family fun event that was filled with lots of laughing. I really loved how the basketball players kept my attention with their silly show. The players even had people in the audience join in on the fun. My boys were so excited when they got selected to go on the court and dance with the Globetrotters. My boys had fun singing the YMCA song with the players.


Watching the Globetrotters was way better than watching a real basketball game. These players knew how to have fun and they made me laugh all night long.


    I was amazed at how Flip was able to jump up and hang on the rim. This was after he made a great shot with the basketball.


 The show had plenty of audience participation. The below photo was a husband who was getting lessons on how to impress his wife. This was after the Globetrotters took the wife's purse. My husband loved when the players did the reverse play in slow motion. That took a lot of talent on the players part.


    I got so many great photos and videos of the show. I would love to show all of them to you but that would spoil the show.  You need to attend a Harlem Globetrotters show so you too can have a fun family night.

Here is a photo from when a player got stuck in the hoop. This made us all laugh so hard. It was so funny when one of the other players was coaching him how to get down.


I leave you with my favorite video from the show. 




With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard and Cheese Chisholm - plus female stars TNT Lister, Ace Jackson and Hoops Green - the Harlem Globetrotters' show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment. Their 2018 World Tour will showcase incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction. After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans.

National Dessert Month And Pumpkin Pie

October is a wonderful month!


  If I had to choose a month that I am loving this year, I would vote for October. I love October for many reasons. This month started out with the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and then a trip to Chicago to visit my family and attend the Moms Meet Wow Summit. The weather here is perfect. I am still wearing shorts and can have my windows open but it is not too hot. It has cooled down enough that I can turn on the oven and do some baking. My teen is happy that I can finally start baking as his birthday is in October and I always bake him a homemade pumpkin pie. October is also National Dessert month so that gives me another wonderful reason to bake.

  My son's birthday was two days after I returned from Chicago and I was busy with work so I did not get a chance to bake him a pie. Sure I could have bought one but my son said it had to be homemade. So I agreed to bake him one the following weekend. By the time the weekend came and I got to the store, this mom was tired. So I decided to at least buy a premade crust, hoping the teen would not notice as the last time I tried to do that he said no way and made the pie crust himself. While I was in the freezer section looking for the pie crust, I saw a frozen pie that was naturally wholesome and decided to try it as this tired mom did not feel like baking. I was not going break my promise of a birthday pie for my teen son. I did buy whipping cream so I could make homemade whip cream for the pie.


  I am glad I took a chance of this frozen pumpkin pie. From the moment it started baking, I knew it was just like a homemade pie. The pie may have been frozen but it turned to a liquid and rose up just like my homemade pumpkin pie. Once the pice was done, it looked and smelled like a homemade pie.


      The real test came when I served the pie to my teenager son. The pie passed the test as he reached for a second slice of pie. This pie tasted homemade and had a nice flaky crust. My homemade whip cream went perfectly with the crust. I don't know why I buy the stuff in the can as whip cream is so easy to make and tastes way better. I do love celebrating National Dessert Month and my son's birthday. So how will you celebrate National Dessert Month?

Celebrate Halloween With Welch’s Halloween Fruit Snacks

My boys were excited about a mock Halloween party!


   My boys and I received a big box the other day that had lots of fun Halloween items in it. So we decided to have a party. It was a rainy day and I knew this fun mock Halloween party would give my boys something to do. So my boys got busy decorating with all the items that were in the box. I made some snacks for our fun party as what is a party without snacks! The box of goodies included my boy's favorite snack, fruit snacks! There was plenty of the delicious Welch's Fruit snacks to eat and my boys just love the cool Halloween shapes that they came in.


Even the packages were decorated for Halloween. I was thinking that these fruit snacks would be awesome to hand out to the Trick O Treaters on Halloween night.


The fruit snacks were also perfect to use for a fun game of BINGO. The boys are having a Halloween party with their Cub Scout troop and asked if they could play this BINGO game with their friends. I said yes and I will have to buy some more boxes of the Welch's Fruit Snacks for the party.


Note to self: buy lots of Welch's Fruit Snacks as it was fun to eat them as I played BINGO with the boys.


I Can Look Great Without Makeup With Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum

                                     I love the natural look on my face.


  I really don't like wearing makeup as it feels heavy on my face and it takes time to apply. The only times I apply makeup is when I dress up and that is once or twice a week. Even when I do wear makeup, I wear very little as all I want to do is cover up those fine lines and even out my skin tone. I also like the natural look. When I do wear makeup, I usually only wear foundation, blush, and eyeshadow. I just can't stand the way things like lipstick and mascara feels and don't get me started on the smudging. I have learned to love my naked natural beautiful face. Now I know some of you ladies are thinking, "go without makeup? no way." There are some days when I have this feeling and it is usually on the days my face is dry and all those fine lines are sticking out like a sore thumb. Those days when my face is so dry that even my moisturizer is not helping are the days that I reach for my foundation. Winter will be here soon and the combination of the dry desert air and having the heat on will make my skin very dry. So in the past, I have used thick creams on my face but they make my face shiny. So when I discovered Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum, I just had to try it.


This is me with no makeup as who wears makeup when exercising?


 This serum combines six types of Hyaluronic Acid and Strivectin's patented NIA-114™ to visibly plump thirsty skin. I have used Hyaluronic Acid in joint supplements before but I have not used it on my skin so I had to do some research on how it can help my dry skin. Here is what I found on Google "Hyaluronic acid isn't harsh or skin-stripping at all. In fact, it's the exact opposite – a powerful humectant (aka moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plump and hydrated and, yes, young-looking. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body."

 I liked the sound of plump, hydrated, young-looking skin. Many years ago, I would have thought plump meant me have a fat face but now I like plump on my face as that means moisture to smooth those fine lines near my lips and eyes. It also means moisture to fill in those large smile lines that drive me crazy.

Did you know that a Hyaluronic Acid molecule can hold 1000 times its own weight in water?

Here is a photo from last year when I had makeup on.

So there really is not much difference between my before and after makeup photos but in each of these, I had moisture on my side. The moisture of exercise and the humidity of New Orleans. Now in the below photo, I have makeup on but it is a very dry day and my face shows all those lines.


So that is why I was excited to try Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum as living in the desert can leave my face quite dry and not so pretty. This silky serum was so easy to use, I love the way how the Hyaluronic Acid and NIA-114 are in separate chambers and combine together each time I press the button on the container. This serum is meant to go on your face first before your moisturizer so after I washed my face I applied the serum. Then I applied my moisturizer to help lock in the moisture so my face does not look dehydrated. My face felt so soft after I did this. I just love that I can continue to go without makeup and have a beautiful natural look. On days that I wear makeup, Strivectin will allow me to look even better. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see before and after photos.

High Hyaluronic Acid levels contribute to the soft skin associated with newborns.

I really notice a difference around my eyes after I applied the Strivectin Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum and my whole face just seemed to have a glow to it. Amazing how moisture can help your skin. Check out this product and Strivectin at the below links.

CBD Is A Feel Good Product For Runners


  I love to run and I want nothing to stop me from getting a good run in. As a runner/older runner, I sometimes get those muscle/joint pain. I guess it comes with the sport and when I forget to stretch. I admit I hate stretching and never did any in my younger days. Now that I am older, I have to stretch or my muscles feel the effect afterward. I also sometimes get pain from previous injuries( link to post) that flare up once in a while. When I do get those dumb/get in the way or running pains, I like to treat it fast and naturally so I can get back to my running. I recently discovered an amazing product that takes care of my pain quickly and naturally. This therapeutic cream that is a feel-good product has CBD(Cannabidiol) in it and I am amazed at how it works. For those that know what CBD is, I am sure you either know the benefits or have questions about it. I know I sure did. I was introduced to CBD at my last conference and was very hesitant about using it. I first had to do my research as I was worried about side effects. So let me tell you more about this product that I discovered from Sagely Naturals.

                                    I received samples from Sagely Naturals.

  Sagely Naturals sent me a couple of products that contain CBD. They sent me three Relief & Recovery products in three forms- capsules, cream, and spray. Before I tell you about how they helped me, I will get the concerns about CBD out of the way.

Will it make me high?
 When most people think of CBD they think of it as that recreational drug that gets you high as it contains hemp. This product is derived from hemp but contains none of the THC( the ingredient that is responsible for the psychoactive sensations and side effects.) So you can relax knowing that you will not get high from CBD. Did you know that CBD is present in many plants like kale and broccoli?

Are these products natural?
 Sagely Natural products have organic ingredients in them like peppermint oil, Argan oil, safflower oil, turmeric, and menthol along with the hemp. The ingredients are Non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and preservative free.

 So after finding out that these products were safe and natural, I felt good about using them for my aches and pains. I first tried the Relief & Recovery cream. This was a thick white cream and at first, I thought I was going to be left with a white residue on my skin but I kept rubbing it in and the cream absorbed into my body leaving no white residue. I guess the company made it that way so you will rub it thoroughly into your skin to get it deep in there. At first, the cream had a cooling effect and a nice peppermint scent. The cooling effect was nice and I thought “ this is all it does?” Then after about five minutes, a wonderful ahh, this feels nice effect happened. I had rubbed the cream into my shoulders and it felt like I just had a nice massage. My muscles were relaxed and feeling good.

 My boys noticed that mom was enjoying the nice feeling and I told them about the cream that I had just used and how it took away my sore muscle pain. My 10 year old asked if he could try the Relief & Recovery cream and proceeded to show me a spot on his leg that hurt from falling down. I rubbed some of the cream on his leg without any hesitation as this was a safe natural product. My son said, “ I don’t feel anything.” I told him to wait 5 minutes and he did. After 5 minutes, he exclaimed, “ my leg feels cool and it does not hurt anymore.” This made the nine-year-old want to try it and he quickly started looking for a place on his body that needed some pain relief. Amazingly, he had no injuries that day. So I rubbed the cream on his arm and he did not complain of any skin irritation. That was awesome as he has very sensitive skin. He quickly noticed a cooling effect also. This cream gave my muscles long-lasting relief and I am excited to try it after a long run or when my hamstring injury flares up.

 Later on that day my husband came home and I told him all about the Relief & Recovery cream and how it would be great for his sore back. I was thinking that this cream would get me relieved of back rubbing duties. I also told him that all three Relief & Recovery products would be good for him to use after the gym. I really wanted him to try the capsules as I have been trying to get him to start taking turmeric supplements. I already take turmeric supplements and know the great benefits of its anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric has helped me with an Achilles injury so I know the addition of CBD is a good thing. My husband also tends to get frequent headaches so I told him about how the spray could help with that.

 These three Relief & Recovery products are going to my go-to products for all my aches and pains that I experience from running. I will be packing the cream in my travel bag for those sitting on a plane sore neck muscles. Want to know more? Then check out Sagely Naturals Relief & Recovery products.

  Sagely Naturals, the innovative CBD wellness brand, was derived from Hemp, a therapeutic super-plant, CBD taps into the existing Cannabinoid receptors in our bodies and safely provides immediate and natural pain relief without the high of straight marijuana. Their Relief and Recovery Cream and the Pain Relief Supplements helps tired, stressed, or fatigued muscles and joints while combating discomfort and inflammation. They also alleviate PMS symptoms, mild anxiety, and chronic aches and pains. We believe CBD is much like Tumeric and Kombucha, and it's about to take the wellness world by storm because of its natural healing properties.

Laundry Made Better with Energy Star Appliances

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.


  Things can get busy and crazy around here. So I have taught my boys how to help out around the house. My boys are learning so much. They already help with the trash, unloading the dishwasher, and folding the clothes. The chore that they are learning right now is how to wash clothes. I am showing them how to properly load the washing machine and how much detergent to use. The most important thing that I am teaching the boys to always use the "color" button on the machine. This button/setting washes the clothes in cold water and is best for the environment. It also saves me money. When I selected my washer and dryer, I made sure they were ENERGY STAR® certified.

Why did I select an ENERGY STAR certified washer and dryer?
ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers and dryers save energy, which means that I will save on my energy bills. Many are also equipped with advanced features that make cleaning and drying easier and more effective.

There are many other features that I like about ENERGY STAR washer and dryers. They are better for the environment which means that I am protecting the climate, leaving it a better place for my kids. ENERGY STAR is also better for my clothes too. The washers are gentler on my clothes and the dryers use less heat and have sensors that reduce wear and tear on my clothes as it prevents over-drying.

    Did you know that you can save $490 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair?



I love saving money and love that my ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and dryer are 25% and 20% more efficient, respectively, than other standard models. My washing machine uses approximately 45% less water than other standard models that I looked at in the store. That can amount to 33,000 gallons of water that I can save during the washers lifetime use!

I was happy that I had options when I purchased my washer. There were many models to choose from and I was able to select a top or front loading washing. Look at all these cool features that ENERGY STAR washers have:

 Sophisticated wash systems– ENERGY STAR certified top-load machines clean your clothing just like standard models without wasting water to fill up the tub. Instead, these machines use sophisticated wash systems to cycle clothes through a mixture of water and detergent, allowing the clothes to be cleaned without using excess water or detergent.

 No central agitator– Front-load machines tumble clothes through a small amount of water instead of rubbing clothes against an agitator, while advanced top-load machines lift and tumble clothes through a reduced stream of water. Both designs dramatically reduce the amount of hot water and energy used in the wash cycle.

 High spin speeds– Efficient motors spin clothes two to three times faster to extract more water. Less moisture in the clothes means less time in the dryer and less energy spent drying clothes.


o   Long live your clothes– Front-load and advanced top-load clothes washers’ sophisticated wash systems use a variety of methods to lift and tumble your laundry, lengthening the life of often-washed items. Additionally, because they are so gentle, many models can safely clean silk, wool, and other hand-washables.



If all clothes dryers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $1.5 billion each year and 22 billion pounds of annual carbon pollution would be prevented. This is equal to the emissions from 2 million vehicles.

Saving money and saving the environment are great reasons why I choose an ENERGY STAR clothes dryers but I also liked the following advanced features:

o   Low Heat Setting– Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look for the cycle that uses the least amount of energy, sometimes known as the “energy-saving” selection.

 Steam Cycles– Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as a steam cycle that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.

Make National Pasta Day Healthier

Now everyone can celebrate National Pasta Day!

                   I received coupons for free pasta to promote national pasta day.

  Pasta is already a healthy food as it is loaded with healthy carbs and vitamins. For some people, pasta is a bad thing as they have gluten problems. Well, gluten-free people can rejoice and celebrate National Pasta Day. Those who want to eat healthier will also like Cybele's Free To Eat Rotini. I love this pasta for its pretty colors. Purple pasta is the best! I love how this pasta gets its color from veggies and it is also loaded with 14 grams of protein. Free To Eat also comes in other pretty colors like green, red, white, and orange. Don't worry about eating this superfood if you have other allergies as it is free from the top 8 allergens. It also has twice the fiber(compared to regular pasta) and more than a full serving of veggies. So rejoice and enjoy some healthier pasta on National Pasta Day on October 17!


   The purple one is my favorite. I love that it gets its cool color from red lentils, beets, sweet potatoes, and purple carrots. The rotini had a nice flavor to it and tasted very similar to regular pasta. I know that a nice red or white pasta sauce would look so pretty on it. How delicious would roasted beets be with this pasta?


I am not much of a green food person but I do want to try the Superfood Green for all the wonderful nutrition in it. A red tomato sauce would help cover up the green color.


The Superfood White looks just like regular pasta and would be a great way to get protein and veggies into my boy's diet. The younger boys love cheese on their pasta so this would make a healthy mac and cheese dish.


I was not able to find the Superfood red and orange at my store but I so want to try those flavors. The Superfood orange has pumpkin and butternut squash in it, mmmm!

So celebrate National Pasta Day the healthy way with Cybele's Free To Eat Rotini.
