Wow, you have to try my new addiction! I stumbled upon MANGO, an amazing new product and yummy treat from a company called, The Raw Choice. The dried Mangos are made with ONLY organic mangoes (no funny sweeteners).
This all-natural alternative to candy is so tasty, I keep a package in my purse, car and next to my computer and chew away when hunger hits. With 2g of dietary fiber per serving, this 2g-of-protein snack rates high on my list. Research has shown that dietary fiber has a protective effect against degenerative diseases, especially heart conditions and certain types of cancer, as well as lowering blood cholesterol levels. Mangos are also a great way to replenish lost potassium during exercise.
Mangos, known to many as the "king of fruit", really do make you feel great. Beyond being delicious, this comfort food is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, as well as an enzyme with stomach soothing properties. These comforting enzymes act as a digestive aid and add to that feeling of contentment we experience while indulging in this this sweet tropical treasure.
Go ahead, feed your cravings for something sweet in Mango; tell them Beth sent you!

I've been reading so much information about how plastic water bottles are linked to breast and other forms of cancer that I've decided to invest in stainless steel water bottles for my family, just in case!
The water tastes so much cleaner and it's easy to just fill up the bottles from our kitchen sink (with an under-the-counter filter installed). It saves money in the long run and you feel much better when you see your children drinking from a safer bottle alternative!
Check out Klean Kanteen at www.Kleankanteen.com for more information about this bottle pictured here! They even offer a sippy top for the little ones!
