New product alert! And this new product is also a limited edition item! Today I am sharing my Tasty ice cream review with you. I just recently discovered that my local Kroger store carries these new ice cream pints from Tasty and they are available in four fun and very delightful flavors. Tasty ice cream pints feature some super-duper creamy ice cream with the addition of unique mix-ins. The flavor combinations of these Tasty ice cream limited edition flavors are not only creative but make for one memorable ice cream experience! Tasty ice cream succeeded in slapping a big fat smile onto my face with these sweet treats!
I love when I am browsing the interwebs and come across a super duper cool online store! I recently came upon Nutty Steph’s while checking out a gift-guide chock full chocolates. Nutty Steph’s really stood out to me with their Bernie Bar! I really do try to avoid politics over here at Give It A Whirl Girl, but truth be told, and cat’s out of the bag… I absolutely love Bernie Sanders. Nutty Steph’s hails from the state of Vermont so it only makes sense that this online store backs Bernie as a big supporter. Nutty Steph’s also is a big backer of Planned Parenthood and they have the Vulva Chocolates to prove it!

If you are looking for a good, clean source of energy, look no further than to Redd Bar Superfood Energy Bars. Today I am sharing my Redd Bar review with you on the blog for Tried It Out Tuesday. These snack bars are gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and contain 35mg of caffeine per bar. These bars will give you the jolt that you need without any jitters.

It has been a great year for 2018 over here at Give It A Whirl Girl! I started up this blog in early June and it has been one hell of an awesome ride! At the start of 2018, I made a new year’s resolution to start a blog. I am so happy to say that it was one of my new year’s resolutions that I actually stuck to and accomplished.
Today I have compiled this list of gluten-free food that I am just dying to try! I searched high and low on Amazon to bring you a list of my top 10 favorites that are on my wishlist. Many of these items are also paleo and keto-friendly and you can easily incorporate these gluten-free items into your healthy diet and lifestyle.

Hello friends and readers! On this day I will bring to you more of my top items on my Healthy Hot List. This list contains healthy food and the products that will also help you create them. The healthy foods that I have included in this compiled list are for a variety of diets: gluten-free, vegan, paleo, Whole 30, or keto. I also figured that this week I would throw in a couple products as well that will help you create your own healthy foods at home. The ones that are included here are quite essential for a kitchen that cranks out healthy eats. I am really wishing and hoping for everything on this list this week. Enjoy and I hope you see something that catches your eye!
I would like to start up a new regular feature on the blog featuring items that I have used and fallen in love with. I will be calling this the Healthy Hot List. These are all items that I have given a whirl and want to spread the word about. Many of these items fall within the realms of several different diets: gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, Whole 30, keto, and vegan. Whenever I try out a new product and I become a fan I do my best to promote these items and spread the word about them. I would love my good words for these brands to travel far and wide because they earned it with their quality food products.
If you are local to the Detroit area, chances are you have been to Eastern Market at least once in your life. If you are a foodie like me then chances are you have visited several times. Eastern Market is a bustling area of visitors looking for the best deals on fresh produce, other food items, and flowers.Â Each and every time you visit Eastern Market it is a different experience because there are different vendors.
Through Groupon, we have also discovered a miraculous place nestled down there in all of the action, DeVries & Company 1887. We regularly purchase Groupons to get some good bargains there and we went equipped with one yesterday to stock up on some unique foods.
Wow gals and guys! Can you believe that in the past 4 1/2 months I have been blogging here at Give It A Whirl Girl and this is a milestone post? 100 posts have been drafted and published as of today! I figured the best way to celebrate my hard work was with a bowl of Balsamic Raspberry & Chocolate Balsamic Fudge Ripple Nice Cream! No champagne bubbles flowing here, just some paleo and (almost vegan... I did use raw honey) nice-cream for my daughter and I to share.
Blogging has just been a fantastic journey and experience for me. I feel blessed that I am able to work from home and combine my passion for cooking, baking, and writing. I am learning new things as the days go by. There is also never a shortage of things to do. I am consistently keeping myself busy and occupied. With blogging, there is always a lot of behind-the-scenes work.Â Â
Erma's Frozen Custard in St. Clair Shores is the place to be if you want some top quality frozen custard and some exciting, fun ways to top it. This place has so many wonderful flavor concoctions it is somewhat overwhelming to decide on just one! Give me two. NO! Give me three! The flavor options here are just mindblowing. This was my first time visiting with my little family of 3 and we each chose our own parfaits. I just had to go with Peanut Butter & Jelly. I really have a thing for PB&J and that is my jam right now. My husband went with the S'mores Parfait. I believe I heard him moaning over just how good it was. And last but not least my daughter, Chloe, went with a Candy Parfait.
If you are a health nut and you also love to indulge a bit in a tasty treat then Skinny Dipped Almonds might just be your go-to snack when you are having a snack attack! I just recently had a chance to sample three different flavors of Skinny Dipped Almonds. I tried out the Dark Chocolate Cocoa, Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Spice, and the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. Skinny Dipped Almonds come in two additional flavors as well: Dark Chocolate Espresso and Dark Chocolate Raspberry. These three bags of almonds went pretty quick in my home and we all enjoyed these flavors. Consider me a fan for life! I really do need to get my hands on the other flavors. Keep reading this Skinny Dipped Almonds review to find out more and find out how you can save with my Skinny Dipped Almonds coupon code.
I recently had the opportunity to try the line of supplements for adult by Good Day Chocolate. I was so impressed with the quality and effectiveness of these supplements for myself so I figured I should have my daughter, Chloe, give them a whirl too! She sure is excited! I know she was a little jealous when I had my supply for myself. Who doesn't love chocolate? Good Day Chocolate Supplement For Kids comes in four different varieties: Multivitamin, Calm, Probiotic, and Sleep. You can also grab yourself a variety pack for children if you want to try them all.
The great thing about these is that your child will get excited to take their vitamin. Who doesn't love chocolate?! They are also naturally colored from fruits and vegetables, so no artificial colors here. Also, the chocolate is ethically sourced fair-trade chocolate. One piece of chocolate has 2g of sugar and each piece has approximately 15 calories.
Sorry readers... no recipe here. I really should have taken measurements and gotten out my pen and paper. I still, however, would like to share the details on how I created this scrumptious and healthy-ish bowl of paleo and vegan double chocolate nice-cream! As you can see in the photo below there are three spoons in that little Fiesta bowl fighting for a bite of this frozen treat! I was a little short on ingredients so I worked with what I had and ended up with one lone bowl. Oh well, better than nothing right? If you love chocolate then you are in for a real treat. Continue reading to find out how you can make your own healthy ice-cream at home with a few simple (and affordable) ingredients!
I was given a care package of Enjoy Life Protein bites and I am loving each flavor of these little chocolate morsels. As you may already know, I am a big fan of the Enjoy Life Foods Brand. They create and produce food that is free of common allergens that anyone can eat. You will not find gluten (wheat), dairy, peanuts, soy, egg, tree nuts, among other food allergensÂ in any of their products. You can have peace of mind with this brand because they only use quality ingredients and their products are REAL FOOD. If you are following a gluten-free diet or vegan diet this brand has a ton of great products available to you.
