Nutty Steph’s REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Chocolate That Actually Makes A Loud Statement

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!

Kiss My Keto Coupon Code & Chocolate Bar & Energy Supplement Review

When I stumble across a product that I love I just really want to spread the good word! I recently tried a few different products from Kiss My Keto and I was very impressed with the quality of these products. Kiss My Keto has a wonderful online store chock full of keto products for you low-carb, low-sugar diet and lifestyle. I recently gave their chocolate bars a whirl along with their energy supplement. Keep on reading for a special Kiss My Keto coupon code.

Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars

I placed an order for a couple of Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars. I went with the Original flavor and Hazelnut bar. These (almost guilt-free) ketogenic chocolate bars are sugar-free and sweetened with stevia. Why do I say almost? Though they are sugar-free they still do have some calories that you need to be aware of! If you eat the entire bar of the original flavor that comes out to 380 calories… so don’t eat the entire bar in one day! What I like to do is enjoy the chocolate bars in thirds, which is the suggested serving size. One serving is 130 calories. You can see the macro breakdown below.

A 1-ounce serving of our bar will give you the following macros:

13g Fat, 2g Net Carbs, 0g Sugar, 10% MCT (source)

 

Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars
Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars

Besides being nutritious, this Keto Chocolate Bar is also:

Gluten-free, Vegetarian, Soy-free, Lactose-free, Sugar-free (source)

These delicious Kiss My Keto chocolate bars are specifically designed for anyone doing a keto diet AND you still want to enjoy your chocolate. The macros will allow you to remain in ketosis. One serving is only going to be 2 net carbs, which is fantastic considering that this is for your sweet tooth! The chocolate bars are also infused with MCT which is going to help you along on your weight-loss journey. Burn fat with fat!

Kiss My Keto Hazelnut Bar

This Kiss My Keto Toasted Hazelnut Dark Chocolate Bar has the right combination and nuttiness happening here. A nice plus to this hazelnut bar is that the hazelnuts are going to give you a boost in fat. One serving size contains 13g of fat, 130 calories, and 2g net carbs.

Other flavors of Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars

There are two other flavors of Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars that I have yet to give a whirl too! Kiss My Keto also has a Chocolate Pumpkin Seeds & Sea Salt bar and a Dark Chocolate Roasted Almonds bar.

KETO CHOCOLATE PUMPKIN SEEDS & SEA SALT (4 PACK)

This flavor of Kiss My Keto Chocolate contains pumpkin seeds and sea salt along with dark chocolate. Did you know that pumpkin seeds are a fantastic source of zinc for your diet? This nutrient is perfect for skin care and your immune system.

KETO CHOCOLATE ROASTED ALMONDS (4 PACK)

Lots of great stuff happening here with this Kiss My Keto dark chocolate almond bar. Almonds are a great source of Vitamin E, protein, fiber, magnesium, folate, potassium, among others! This particular bar is a powerhouse of healthy vitamins and nutrients.

Healthy chocolate! Who knew?

Who knew chocolate could be so beneficial for your healthy diet? It really just depends on the chocolate bar that you pick up! You can’t get ahold of Hershey Bar and think that there are health benefits to that… right? I think with chocolate you get what you pay for. When you do the math with these, if you make a one-time purchase, each bar comes out to be $6.25 in the four-pack. If you only nibble on one serving per day, your cost is around $2 for each serving. Not too shabby when you look at it that way.

Kiss My Keto’s chocolate is chocolate that you can feel good about putting in your body. I need my regular fix of chocolate and Kiss My Keto Chocolate will be one of my new go-to brands that I reach for when I have that chocolate candy craving.

Kiss My Keto Chocolate Bars & a way to save!

You can order a 4-pack of chocolate bars for $24.99 or you can sign up for a subscription and get a 4-pack of bars for $21.24. That is a 15% savings. And you are going to want to subscribe because these chocolate bars are the bomb and you are going to want more. Trust me on this!

Kiss My Keto also has this wonderful thing called The Keto Club. With the Kiss My Keto Keto Club, you earn points on every order and those points can be redeemed and you can earn free product. Here is how it works… for every dollar spent you can earn 1 point. For every 100 points that you earn you get a $1 credit for your next order.

Kiss My Keto Energy – one other product that I had to try!

Kiss My Keto Energy Supplement
Kiss My Keto Energy Supplement

I also threw in a Kiss My Keto Energy supplement into my order. For a while, I had a bit of a problem with energy drinks. I know they are terrible for you but I am a big fan of Bang Energy. I am looking to cut back and eliminate energy drinks from my diet. When I came across the energy supplement I was intrigued. Wondering what is inside these gel caps?

Kiss My Keto Energy Supplement Nutrition Facts
Kiss My Keto Energy Supplement Nutrition Facts

This energy supplement has MCT oil in it. The MCT is going to kickstart your ketosis and burn fat. The MCT oil is a must-have for anyone doing a low-carb diet and wants to shed some pounds.

The l-theanine that is used in this supplement is known to improve cognition, attention, and focus. After taking this supplement I did feel the increased focus and I was able to get some things done around the house.

I took the supplement in the late afternoon, which is when I start to feel drained because I was up at some insanely early hours. This supplement enabled me to push through and fight fatigue.

The Kiss My Keto energy supplement contains a blend of caffeine, MCT, and a big dose of l-theanine. Each supplement bottle contains enough for a month supply. I gave them a whirl and I did notice a big boost in energy and focus. For me, there were no side effects.

This supplement sells for $29.99 so that comes out to being only a buck a day for good, clean energy without the jitters! If you subscribe you can save 15% and get a bottle for $25.49.

Here are some of my blog highlights that feature chocolate I would love to share:

Paleo & Vegan Cookie Dough Cheesecake Recipe

Slice of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake
Slice of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

This recipe turned out quite fabulous and I am really proud of this one and had to share it here on my blog! I am a lover of pretty much anything this is cookie dough. This was a delectable treat that truly pleased my palate. This recipe is perfect for anyone that loves to indulge in chocolate.

Paleo & Vegan Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe

A nice slice of the Vegan Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Ahhh yes… we have another cheesecake recipe that I would love to share with my readers. So yeah I am a big time cookie dough lover but you want to know what else I love? The combination of dark chocolate and raspberry. Pure bliss! This is another recipe for the chocolate lovers out there. I am quite obsessed with all of these paleo and vegan cheesecake recipes. It is nice to know and reassuring that those of us who need to opt for a gluten-free diet have a wide variety of things to choose from nowadays.

Paleo Chocolate & Matcha Cheesecake

Paleo Chocolate & Matcha Cheesecake
Paleo Chocolate & Matcha Cheesecake

One more cheesecake recipe. This recipe is paleo friendly. I could have made it vegan-friendly as well but silly me decided that sweetening this up with honey was a great idea. Great idea, yes, but not friendly for the vegan readers. This chocolate and matcha combination had a very unique flavor.

So tell me… what is the first product that you are going to give a whirl if you win my chocolate giveaway? Leave a comment below and make sure you enter the giveaway. Good luck to all!

My Skinny Dipped Almonds Review

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.

Skinny Dipped Almonds (Dark Chocolate Cocoa, Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Spice, and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter)
Skinny Dipped Almonds (Dark Chocolate Cocoa, Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Spice, and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter)

Not So Skinny Taste

Don’t let the name “Skinny Dipped” fool you because these almonds are certainly not lacking in flavor, in fact, each flavor that I sampled is actually bursting with flavor! Skinny Dipped Almonds are whole roasted almonds that have a hint of maple sugar, a touch of sea salt, and a skinny layer of dark chocolate on them. These are created with ethically-sourced artisan chocolate and organic ingredients. Skinny Dipped Almonds does not use any artificial colors or flavors in their snack.

No funky ingredients… just real food.


Skinny Dipped Almonds Are Nutritious Nuts

Looking for a protein punch? These almonds are a fantastic source of protein! 15 Skinny Dipped Almonds will give you 4 grams of protein and it is so easy to eat more than 15 of these delicious morsels. I could easily eat an entire bag in one sitting! If you need a boost in fiber, Skinny Dipped Almonds comes in at 2 grams of fiber per serving (15 almonds).

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Skinny Dipped Almonds

The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter reminds me so much of eating a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. This dipped almond has a layer of dark chocolate on it and a dusting of some creamy, dreamy peanut butter.

The Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Skinny Dipped Almonds can be found online and in Target stores. They will be available at Skinny Dipped’s online store soon.

Cactus Pear Nice Cream RECIPE With Pomegranate & Enjoy Life Foods Protein Bites – (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

Wondering how I naturally obtained this lovely shade of hot pink in my bowl of nice-cream (vegan ice-cream)?? Easy! I owe it all to the cactus pear, also known as the prickly pear. The flesh of a cactus pear, when combined with a banana, will give you this gorgeous magenta hue. This cactus pear nice cream recipe is a healthy dessert that will most definitely make your child excited for a yummy treat that is naturally sweet from nature with no added sugars. Other ingredients in this frozen treat are frozen pomegranate, two frozen bananas, some coconut milk and Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Raspberry Protein Bites. This is a much healthier alternative to traditional ice-cream and I always enjoy creating this and serving it at home. Super simple and easy to do too!

Nice-cream is the vegan and paleo version of ice-cream. It is dairy-free and lactose-free.

A good food processor comes in handy for making vegan nice-creams at home. You will also want to prepare in advance for making this by freezing two sliced up bananas overnight. Also, chill a can of full-fat coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight for best results. If you have a can of coconut cream on-hand that makes for even better results, a lot more creamy, but coconut cream is usually around $4 a can and coconut milk works just fine.

The Enjoy Life Foods Dark Raspberry Protein Bites were a wise choice here as a nice-cream topping. I chopped them up small and placed them on top. The dark raspberry flavor is actually my favorite flavor of all the Protein Bites and it paired nicely with the flavors of the cactus pear and pomegranate. It also gave this bowl of nice-cream a boost in protein, which is always welcome, especially if you are following a vegan diet.

Final thoughts on the cactus pear nice cream recipe

I do believe that you will love this hot-pink cactus pear nice cream recipe if you do decide to give it a whirl. It is super unique in its flavor and unlike anything I have ever tried! I am extremely happy with the results of mixing these ingredients together. I was not sure what the outcome would be, but I got brave in the kitchen and I have no regrets!

If you are looking for a healthier alternative to ice-cream that is dairy-free and contains no added sugars, you should try making vegan and glutern-free nice creams at home. They are very versatile and you can get creative by whipping them up and experimenting with different ingredients. As a base, I usually use two frozen bananas and make sure I have a can of chilled coconut milk (it must be full-fat and not light coconut milk) on-hand to make this. This will result in approximately 2-3 servings. Most often it is just my daughter and I sharing but sometimes my hubby wants some too.

A Day Of Good Eats With Good Family

We had an awesome day yesterday full of good eats and great times with family. I got super lucky and won a prize pack from Coleman Naturals on Facebook. I won a variety of organic hotdogs and sausages. As soon as I received my prize pack I knew I had to host a family get-together. I am always looking for an excuse or reason to have people over and cook for them. It brings me a lot of happiness and joy putting a party/family gathering together. Is there really anything better in life than having your good family come together to have a day full of great eats? So we had some hotdogs, sausages, potato salad, macaroni salad, and corn on the cob. It all added up to a scrumptious meal. My sister also brought some side dishes and my mother-in-law brought a fruit tray. We had quite a few healthy foods to eat.

20180822_1022552008145284.jpg

This was my first time trying out anything by Coleman Naturals. I did a bit of research on their products and think that they are an incredible brand. Hotdogs and sausages are often filled with weird, garbage ingredients but not Coleman Naturals. They do not use antibiotics, hormones, steroids, they are non-GMO, use only all natural ingredients, are gluten-free, are free range, and only use organic ingredients. I don’t feel so bad about eating a hotdog or a sausage when I know that they are only made with quality ingredients.

These hotdogs and sausages were the stars of the show yesterday. I had most of my family over and we all enjoyed these. There were chicken hotdogs, pork & beef hotdogs, apple chicken sausage, and some andouille sausage. I also created some other dishes to go with the gathering. I made a healthy potato, a gluten-free macaroni salad, and I also made paleo dark chocolate fudge cupcakes. My dad and my stepmom also brought over some Michigan sweet corn. I brushed mine up and down with some ghee and was in corn heaven!

On Friday night I got home from our day trip out to Birch Run and I had to get my potato salad and macaroni salad done. For both salads, I used my jar of Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo. This was my first time using this mayo and I had no doubt it would be great because I love everything that Primal Kitchen has to offer. This avocado oil mayo can be found on Amazon but the price at Primal Kitchen is a tad lower.

The Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo is Whole 30 compliant, paleo-friendly, keto-approved, sugar-free, gluten-free, and has ZERO grams of carbs! I was super pumped to try this healthy mayo. I love when I come across a food product that is REAL FOOD and allows me to eat clean. Primal Kitchen always comes to mind when I think about clean food. I am so happy to be able to represent and work with a brand that offers nothing but the best when it comes to eating healthy and well.

RECIPE – Make You Own No-Bake Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, & Chia Granola Bars

There are so many ways you can make your own granola bars at home. Making my own is a fun, rewarding experience for me. I ask my 8-year-old daughter, Chloe, to help with the stirring because she has some good muscles for her age and you really have to give them a big stir with the spatula. For these granola bites I used gluten-free ingredients and also paleo-friendly ingredients. No sugar was added to these, they are naturally sweet from the Medjool dates and raw honey. These are a great snack that you can just grab and go. I hope you love these paleo granola bars as much as we did. They sure went quick!

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chia Granola Bars

Ingredients Used For Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, and Chia Granola Bars

Ingredients:

Recipe:

  1. The first step is to heat up some water on the stove so you can soak/soften up your Medjool dates. They will be easy to process if soaked for a few minutes. Place 1 cup (apx 8 dates) into a warm bowl of water and soak for a few minutes.
  2. You will then heat up a tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan. Once the oil is warm add 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut and cook until golden in color.
  3. Using a food processor, place your dates inside and blend them up until no lumps remain.
  4. You will need a large mixing bowl for this next step. Place the date mixture, oats, raw honey, almond butter (you might need to warm this up to soften it), desired quantity of chocolate chips (1/4 cup works best), and chia seeds in a large bowl. Stir until well combined.
  5. Line an 8×8 square cake pan with parchment paper. Place granola bar mixture in the lined pan and spread until flat and the mixture reaches the edges. You can use a flat-bottom measuring cup to help press the mixture down.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  7. Slice into bite-sized bars and enjoy.
  8. Keep refrigerated to maintain freshness.
