Zevia Zero Calorie Soda

"Zero Calories, No Sugar, & No Artificial Sweeteners!"
Holidays are right around the corner. Its the time for family gatherings and outdoor festivities. Maybe host a BBQ or just enjoy the cool air outside with friends. I, myself, have a lot of nieces and nephews.  When having so many people come over it is a great idea to have plenty of drinks on hand ready to go. When it comes to drinks the one thing most kids love these days is soda!  Recently I went to the Wow Summit in Orlando where I learned a lot about eating and drink healthy especially involving children. I do not have any kids yet but getting educated with what I should be serving at activities with so many relatives that do have children (as well as eating healthy myself) was incredibly helpful. There was so much information to consume that my brain is still wrapping around a lot of things to consider and change in the future. But its a good change :)  One of the products that I discovered was the Zevia Zero Calorie Soda!
No sugar soda. Can you believe it? I can relax knowing that I'm not hyping up kids after offering them a cold soda beverage! A seemingly healthy soda choice option for the next gathering. There are several flavors to choose from. Some containing caffeine and others not. My favorite was the Ginger Root Beer (no caffeine). It tastes sweet with a nice soda fizz just as any other soda. That was a popular hit at the Wow Summit event. Everyone seemed to love it. I would recommend this as an alternative to those who drink diet soda! 
These drinks are also Vegan, Kosher and Gluten-Free.  All natural ingredients. Sweetened with Stevia.

Ricola Lemon Zest

"Get your energy back. Take a Ricola!"

Ricola has created their newest Revitalizing Herb Drop. Experiencing the frequent cough drains your energy and you feel like you lose a bit your usual self. I know I do when ever this season affect me in this way. Getting through work on my feet with a cough can be a exhausting. With the revitalizing Herb Drops it offers a natural boost of energy. All the way from Switzerland, each drop has a lemon-y flavor with a powdery combination in the center filled with a bunch of great stuff! Really, there is a refreshing blend of Swiss alpine herbs and ginseng. Also, In just 2 drops it provides 20% of the Adult Daily Value of Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12.  Take between 2-10 daily depending on your condition.
I love that the wrapper is so discreet! Almost appears like a candy wrapper.  Good idea :)

I love the flavor!  Everyone who has tasted the drops loved the flavor. Highly recommended.

Clean Like A Pro Zep

Battle the flu and germs with newest Zep products Zep Quick Clean Disinfectant AND Zep All-Around Oxy Cleaner and Degreaser.

Winter is approaching and this weather is getting pretty chilly! With this change usually follows the cold and flu season. With Zep Quick clean Disinfectant you can fight gems that linger on surfaces. This product kills 99.9% of bacteria in just 5 seconds. That's great to have for this time of the year.
The other product I love using is the Zep All-Around Oxy Cleaner and Degreaser. This product quickly cleans virtually any surface. So that means when you experience a wine or juice or any other colored liquid spill this product cleans it right away. Simply spray, wait 1 minute, then wipe and rise. I use this a lot since I have 4 cats. I've also tested this cleaner on my stove surface too. I had just finished enjoying a delicious meal of Campbell's Shrimp Scampi. For the clean-up afterwards I applied the product. It didn't clean everything on the first try but for the most part it worked wonderfully.

Although be careful. When you spray the cleaner just be aware of what is around the area. The range that is applied sprays pretty far. I'd estimate around a foot in measurement. My stove is right next to my dry dish rack so I had to make sure nothing is too close.
This product is NOT made to use on leather, silk, suede, sensitive stone surfaces, marble, or any surfaces harmed by water.
Recommended. I will purchase this product in the future. For more household supplies visit Zep on their Facebook page.
