Oxylent Multivitamin Supplement Giveaway - Ends 7/6

Two of the most important things you can do to improve your health daily are take a multivitamin supplement and drink water. Unfortunately, so many people are not doing one or both of these. The reasons are usually the issue of not wanting to swallow a pill, since most multivitamin pills now-a-days are almost the size of horse pills. Not drinking water is due to the fact that water itself is bland and tasteless. There won't be any reason not to do these things anymore with Oxylent. Oxylent is a high quality multivitamin supplement that can be mixed into water to create a refreshing and nutritious daily drink. It contains a unique effervescent delivery system that offers nearly 100% immediate absorption of vital nutrients. Simply add the contents of the packet to eight ounces of water and you become hydrated, oxygenated and rejuvenated. The convenient packets allow you to take it with you anywhere, it goes where you go! It comes in the great tasting flavors sparkling berries, sparkling blackberry pomegranate and sparkling mandarin. Available in a 30 count single flavor and variety pack box. For more information visit

Cook'n Recipe Organizer Software Review & Giveaway - Ends 6/28

Anytime I saw a recipe I liked in a magazine or online, I would rip it out or print it and keep it in a looseleaf book. The problem is that I now have tons of books full of recipes that are taking up tons of space.

Even worse is the fact that when I go looking for a specific recipe I have to go through every book, and half the time I can't even find it! I wanted a way to save and organize all those recipes and found just what I was looking for with The Cook'n Recipe Organizer Software.

One of the best features is the ability to "capture" any recipe. If you are online and find a recipe that you want to save, with just one click you can import it into your organizer.

Another of my favorite features is the ability to scale the recipe size. So many times I see recipes that make servings for 6, 8,10 and sometimes more, when I just want one serving! Simply change the setting and the software automatically corrects the ingredient amounts.

These are just some of the other things it can do:

Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Cream Product Review & Giveaway Ends 6/21

Whether it's carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, sore shoulder, achy knees, or any place in between, there are some pains we just have to live with. The most common way to deal with the pain is to rub some pain relieving cream on it. For most creams, the first ingredient is menthol (that is what gives it that minty "you can smell it from a mile away" odor), but Noxicare is different. It does not have that odor, in fact it has no odor! That's because it is a natural pain relief cream, specially formulated for joint, nerve and musculoskeletal pain.

It contains these natural ingredients; turmeric, willow bark, ginger, holy basil, rosemary extract. It was very surprising to see Turmeric listed as the first ingredient. Turmeric is a very well known anti-inflammatory. I have never seen it as an ingredient for a pain relieving cream before. Every article I read about anti-inflammatory foods, turmeric is always on that list, usually at the top of the list, (ginger and rosemary are on the anti-inflammatory list as well) big pluses in my book. I already incorporated turmeric, ginger and rosemary into my diet, so it is great to be able to put them on my skin as well. Noxicare comes in an easy-to-squeeze tube. I was feeling soreness and pain in my shoulder and rubbed some of the cream there. The cream itself was easily absorbed into my skin and did not leave my shoulder or the hand I used to rub it in greasy at all. A few minutes after I rubbed the cream in, I felt a slight tingling, (the "it's working" good kind of tingling) and sure enough, the pain I was feeling did subside and I was pain free for hours. If you suffer nerve, muscle or joint pain and want to use a natural pain reliever try Noxicare today! Noxicare comes in a 3 oz tube and sells for $19.95. It is available for purchase on their website,

Three Lucky winner will each receive a tube of Noxicare and a Noxicare T-Shirt.

    Let's face it, public restrooms are just gross. You don't know what kind of germs and filth is lurking there, so toilet seat covers area must.

They are disposable, individually wrapped toilet seat covers for children (and adults).They are made of a soft, non-woven fabric top coat, with a layer of plastic on the bottom, that creates a waterproof barrier between your child and the seat. This product has the largest coverage of all seat covers on the market. It has an extra large flap to keep legs and clothes from touching the front of the toilet, as well as side flaps that cover the sides of the seat, which most children grab to steady themselves. These are a must-have item for everyday on-the-go parents and an essential item for your travel bag. PottyCovers come in a package of 6 for $5.99 and can be purchased on Amazon, Ebay, all Buy Buy Baby stores around the country and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores.

    SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-up Kit Giveaway - Ends 6/1

    When you want a tasty and refreshing drink, whether your favorite is soda, seltzer or flavored sparkling water, all of these are great options. But it is such a hassle to lug and store all of those bottles and cans home, and then lug the empties to the recycling bin. Not to mention their cost, which keeps going up and up. There is a way to cut the cost and the waste (not to mention gain back storage space) with the SodaStream Fountain Jet. It can turn ordinary tap water into a liter of your favorite carbonated water or soft drink in under 30 seconds without the use of electricity or battery (just a carbonator filled with CO2) and is capable of making as many as 60 (1-Liter) bottles before the carbonator needs replacing or recharging. The best part about the SodaStream is that you can fizz the drink to your taste and choose your flavor by adding in the flavor syrup of your choice. There are over 50 flavor syrups to choose, from the classic cola and root beer to exotic fruit flavors like orange mango and even an energy drink mix. Available in regular, diet, and caffeine-free versions. (None of which contain high-fructose corn syrup, a plus for your waistline!). The SodaStream Fountain Jet comes with a starter kit that includes the soda maker as well as carbonators and a reusable BPA-free carbonating bottle where you can store soda. The SodaStream Fountain Jet is priced at $84.99 and additional flavors, carbonators and bottles are available from SodaStream.

    One lucky winner will receive a SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit ($99.95). It includes:

    - Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white)
    - 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years
    - Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda

      De-Stress in 5 Minutes or Less

      Here are some great tips and tricks to help you de-stress in 5 minutes or less:

      When the body absorbs sunlight, it enhances the effect of mood-stabilizing chemicals like serotonin. Open the curtains during the day.

      Take a virtual vacation. Close your eyes and visualize being on a luxury ocean liner. Feel the rhythm of the waves and inhale the smell of the ocean.

      Jump rope. Jumping rope for 20 minutes triggers your body to release feel-good endorphins, and its repetitive motion makes you relaxed and focused.

      Play music that brings up good memories. Many people find they have a visceral reaction to something they heard in their youth.

      Breathe deeply. touch your middle finger and thumb together on each hand to signal to yourself that I should stop what I'm doing and take a deep, cleansing breathe. You can do it wherever you are - in the grocery store or at a conference.

      When upset, recite the alphabet backwards. You really have to concentrate on the letters, so by the time you get to "P", you've forgotten what was bothering you.

      Lie across several stairs upside down. It has something to do with all that blood rushing to your head. It totally changes your outlook and mood.

      Use lavender essential oil to get calm. Put it in a plug-in diffuser or add a few drops to distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz it on yourself and all over the house.

      Laugh it off: laughter lowers your levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. so go ahead and giggle out loud, it'll make you feel better.

      Glenny's Classic Fruit & Nut Energy Bars Review

      Glenny's Classic Fruit & Nut Energy Bars, are pure, simple and all natural. These bars are packed with whole and half pieces of the classic nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, brazil nuts) and dried fruit (raisins, dates and apricots) you would expect in an energy bar. All of it is held together by honey and brown rice syrup, which softens the nuts, making them easier to chew. Those are the only sweeteners in the bar. There are no refined sugars or corn syrup in these bars to give you that sugar "energy" high and crash. These bars give you energy the natural way, from the nuts and fruit in the bar, not to mention they are both gluten and dairy free. Also mixed into the bar is crisp brown rice, which as you would expect adds crisp and crunch. Each bite gives you a combination of nuts, fruits and crisp brown rice, creating a nutty, crunchy and sweet mouthful. For more information on Glenny's Classic Fruit & Nut Energy Bars, visit their website

      Water, the Great Anti-Ager

      Water is the greatest anti-aging substance around. Healthy cells retain water, aging ones weaken, and their membranes are damaged by free radicals and inflammation allowing vital water to seep out. When they deflate, the havoc is widespread affecting blood pressure, tissue health, and your complexion.

      Choose foods wisely: Almonds, avocados, and salmon provide hydration; beans, lentils, and soy foods help build connective tissue.
      Eat foods as close to their natural state as possible: water and nutrients are lost with cooking.
      Drink lots of purified water: eat plenty of water-packed fresh fruits and vegetables.
      Have one or two eggs every week: they're an excellent source of protein, vitamins A and B-12, folic acid, and lecithin (a major component of cell membranes). Take dietary supplements daily to ensure appropriate nutrient levels are maintained.

      Relief from Allergies with Children's Claritin Redi Tabs

      It's bad enough to experience allergies, but when allergies hit the first step in fighting them is to reach for the allergy medicine. The answer is not that simple for children. Most children cannot swallow allergy pills and even if they can, some types of allergy medicine can cause them to become jittery or drowsy. That's the great thing about Children's Claritin Redi Tabs. They dissolve instantly on the tongue (not to mention they have a sweet grape flavor to them) so no swallowing is necessary and they give 24 hours of symptom relief, plus they don't cause drowsiness.

      Whisk Bliss Gluten Free Gift Pack Giveaway! Ends 5/11

      It's not easy to cook from scratch when you are on a gluten-free diet, since most dishes usually require the use of flour somewhere in the recipe. But now those on gluten-free diets can make and enjoy creamy soups, and savory dishes that would usually require the use of flour with "Shirley J's" new Whisk Bliss Gluten Free.
      Check out creamy the Whisk Bliss Becomes!

      Whisk Bliss is a just-add-water universal cooking base that creates a cream sauce that can be used in place of cream sauces, canned cream soups, milk and other cream sauce components in hundreds of recipes. It's so easy to use the Whisk Bliss Gluten Free, check out these are two tasty (and simple!) dishes made using it: 

      Broccoli Cheese Soup

      1 1/2 c. Shirley J Whisk Bliss Gluten Free

      1 lbs Fresh Broccoli Cut Into Bite-Size Pieces
      6 c. Water
      3 c. Cheddar Cheese, Grated


      In large stock pot combine broccoli and 3 cups of the water, bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining water and Whisk Bliss Gluten Free and stir well. Bring mixture back to a boil and add cheese, simmer for 3-5 minutes. Serve. Garnish individual bowls of soup with shredded cheese, if desired.


      2 tsp Shirley J Chicken Bouillon
      1 c. Shirley J Whisk Bliss Gluten Free
      4 Large Zucchini
      4 c. Water
      1 tsp Garlic Powder
      1/2 c. Sun Dried Tomatoes(chopped, drained)
      1 c. Cooked Shrimp(peeled and deveined)


      Wash zucchini thoroughly. Using a vegetable stripper (or by hand) cut zucchini into long thin, spaghetti like, julienne strips, do not use the seeds. Place zucchini “noodles” into a bowl covered with cold water, set aside.

      For sauce, combine Whisk Bliss Gluten Free with water in a medium sauce pan. Stir and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat, add garlic, tomatoes and cooked shrimp. Simmer for 2 minutes.

      Meanwhile select a large pot and a colander. The colander should fit into the pot. Fill pot ¾ full with water; add chicken bouillon to the water, stir and bring to a boil. To cook noodles, quickly blanch zucchini strips in boiling water by placing them into the colander and immersing into boiling water for 30 seconds or less. Quickly drain noodles and place in pasta bowl or directly onto serving plate. Top noodles with sauce.

      There are hundreds more recipes on Shirley J's website. (As you search their website, recipes that call for Whisk Bliss Original can be substituted for Whisk Bliss Gluten Free.The products are the same in form, taste and function, just one is gluten free.)

      Win a KitchenAid Premium Blender! (ARV $149.99) - Ends 4/27

      Are you thinking, what makes this blender a "premium blender?" Well,
      first there is the visual aspect, it has a sleek, elevated base with a heavyweight die cast metal construction and a virtually indestructible, and 56-oz. one-piece BPA-free pitcher. It is available in the colors Empire Red (as seen in the picture), Espresso, Onyx Black and Silver Metallic.

      As for the physical aspects of the blender, it has a powerful .9 horsepower motor with Intelli-Speed motor control that maintains an optimal blending speed based on the thickness of ingredients. Have you ever used a blender that does more chopping then it does blending? Where you try to make a smoothie but end up with a yogurt-ice-stawberry-small-pieces-mixture? The KitchenAid premium blender is designed to promote fast, thorough and consistent blending. (So you will end up with that smoothie you wanted and not the small piece mixture.) Its automatic Soft Start technology is another feature that pulls ingredients into the blade rather than spraying them away from it. A sharp blade with thick tines is aligned on four different planes, while a unique pitcher with special contours forces contents to move up, around and down.

      The modes on the blender include a Crush Ice function that uniformly crushes a tray of ice in seconds, along with Stir, Chop, Puree, Liquefy and Pulse options. The pitcher is dishwasher safe and can be placed vertically in a standard dishwasher. The base features a smooth Clean Touch control pad with no cracks or crevices to trap ingredients.
