I had the pleasure of testing this neat little electric can opener by Zyliss today. I was very impressed with its performance.  I honestly didn’t think it would really do the job after opening the package and seeing how simple the design was, but boy was I wrong. This opener is a blessing for people like me with cramping or arthritis in their hands – no more cranking to open a can.  The can opener actually removes the entire lid – no more dirty can lids in your food (you know how it always falls into the can and touches your food!)  It cleans up in a flash just wipe any splatters that may happen in the opening process.

The Zyliss EasiCan removes lids from any size can.  It locks onto the can with a magnetic feature for easy one-hand operation.  No sharp edges, so even the kids can operate this with ease and safety.  The opener is powered by 2 AA batteries (not included), so you are not limited to where you can use this product. Take it anywhere without needing an electrical outlet even on a camping trip or to tailgate at the ball park.

It is light weight and fits in the palm of your hand.

www.eatology.co – my journey to lose weight!

As many of you know I’ve had lots of medical challenges for the past 4 or 5 years now.  These medical conditions were something I had no control over, they were conditions that I was not even aware of that existed in my family’s medical history.  Because of the sedentary lifestyle and these medical conditions that I have had to battle I’ve managed to pack on 40 (yes 40) pounds.  At my age not only is it unhealthy but it’s not attractive.  When I look in the mirror I want to cry and ask “What happened to that tall slender girl I used to be?”  I am 5 feet 7 inches tall and people will say to me “but you’re tall you can carry the extra weight!” to which I say no thank you I don’t feel well at this weight.  I weigh more now than when I was 9 months pregnant with my son.  So I decided enough was enough and I was going to not only get this weight off but take better care of myself from this day forward.  I want to be around to see my new grandbaby graduate from high school, college, and get married and have his own children God willing, but at this rate I won’t.

Many of you know not only of my blog but the many hours a week I dedicate to my charities.  I started and run a foundation that provides financial aid to children who cannot afford private music instruction; I work with the local battered women’s shelter, and combined with the blog work I can sit up to 15 hours a day.  I try to take breaks but that doesn’t always happen as I get busy with a project and I just don’t want to stop.  The same can be said for my eating habits.  Taking time to prepare a proper meal for myself never happens.  I just grab anything I can find in my kitchen (which is never anything healthy) and eat it while I work at my computer.

So when I decided that I was going to take charge of my eating habits and lose this excess weight I started doing some research about prepared meal delivery plans and I came across Eatology. Eatology Kitchen Studios, specializes in preparing healthy entrees that taste like “cheat meals.” These dishes replicate the foods that people miss most when cleaning up their diets, making clean eating easy to stick with! Using fresh, whole-food ingredients, they turn out some killer Paleo-Zone meals…like Puerto Rican Lasagna, Chili Cheese Fries and Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake. All menu options are “Clean Eating Friendly” and can accommodate specific needs like Paleo, Whole30, Vegetarian, Zone etc.  All meals are Gluten / Hormone / Preservative-Free, No Added Sugars and Low Sodium.

Now you might say these meal delivery plans are all alike and I am here to tell you that is the furthest thing from the truth – they are not all alike.  I did the research and found that most use tons of artificial additives and preservatives to get that food to you so it won’t spoil.  Eatology does not use any artificial additives or preservatives, its good clean (delicious) fresh food that is convenient and will keep you on the straight and narrow to achieve your goal of losing weight.  Eatology prepares your meals in house, with a small group of employees, and that really appealed to me.  Knowing my food was not going through the “factory” process on an assembly line by robots was something that I really appreciated.  They will work with you to customize a Paleo or Zone approved meal plan that consists of 3 meals per day per week or a total of 21 prepared cooked and flash frozen meals. Your meals will come packaged in dry ice and will be delivered right to your door.  All you have to do is unpack the box, put them into your freezer and use them – what could be easier?  You can go onto their website and chose your own meals from the list of what is available or you can just go on auto-ship and an assortment of meals will be chosen for you and shipped out once a week to keep you supplied with approved meals.

You will be assigned a coach that will be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have but the plan is pretty straight forward.  You need to eat 5 times a day, 3 meals and 2 snacks and drink lots of water.  I know for some people that is difficult but for me it is not because I do my best to drink plenty of water all day long.  Putting a piece of lemon, lime or even a slice of orange into your water, that might help you to get that water into your daily diet if you are not a water drinker.

A few years ago I partnered with a well known company and did a review of their frozen meals.  The food was very good but I found myself hungry all day long as it wasn’t enough food to satisfy me.  It was very small portions (as most of them are) and I just needed more food to keep me from feeling hungry and getting horrible headaches.  Unfortunately the weight that I lost in the first two weeks came off due to starvation which is not the best way to lose weight.  We all know that as soon as you go back to eating your regular intake of calories you will gain all that weight right back.

So this morning I had my first Paleo Eatology meal for breakfast – it was called “Banana Nut Bread” which was scrumptious.  It was three large pieces of Eatology’s version of Banana Nut Bread and a side of sweet potato fries.  The ingredients may surprise you as they did me but I’m telling you this meal was so delicious I didn’t miss the sugar.  The ingredients are Turkey (yes I was shocked as you cannot taste it at all), egg whites, banana, apple, sweet potato, applesauce, pecan, honey, agave, apple juice, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, tapioca flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt.  It was more than enough to keep me from getting hungry until snack time (3-4 hours after my breakfast) so I actually saved the last portion for my snack.

You will see my lunch in the video above.  I chose Tropical Coconut Burgers with Carrot Fries and Beets by Dre (LOL how funny).  It was also more than enough to fill me up so I saved the last burger for my afternoon snack.

All of the ingredients are clearly marked on each meal so that you can see exactly what is in your food.  No mystery ingredients.

There are three possible meal plan options you can choose with Eatology.  There is a B2 and B3 or the Family Meal Plan option available to purchase.  You can read all about the different options on Eatology’s website at www.eatology.co 

If you are struggling to lose weight I urge you to go to their website and read about their dedication to helping you lose that excess weight.  This plan is great for anyone who has sugar issues such as diabetes and hypoglycemia.  However we urge you to consult your physician before you start any diet or meal plan service.  Show your physician and I am certain he will approve 100% with Eatology’s meal plan service.  Checking out the website may pay off in the end of my journey (hint, hint) with a special surprise offer from the folks at Eatology for my followers. www.eatology.co

If you are interested in trying Eatology here is a special code for Reviews And More By Rosey followers.  Enter the code ROSEYEATS at the checkout for a 10% discount.

That being said I hope you will come along with me and watch my progress for the next few weeks.  I am hopefully that my journey will inspire many of you to do the same.

Today I weight myself (it’s not pretty) and I will tell you what I’ve lost at the end of each week.

In closing I’d just like to give a huge shout out to Laurah at Eatology for being so kind and caring.  She really does want me to succeed.

I was so excited to receive this 10 piece bakeware set by Ayesha for a few reasons.  Customers gave it a 5 out of 5 star rating.

I greatly admire Ayesha Curry as a person, a wife, a mother and an entrepreneur.  She manages to do it all with such style and grace.  I have watched several interviews that she has done on talk shows and really love her spunk.  She’s someone that young girls, especially young girls of color, can aspire to be like.

The set comes with the following pieces:

  • (1) 12-Cup muffin pan with plastic lid
  • (1) 9-Inch by 13-Inch cake pan
  • (2) 10-Inch by 15-Inch Cookie Pans
  • (1) 9-Inch by 5-Inch Loaf Pan
  • (2) 9-Inch Round Cake Pans
  • (1) 9-Inch Square Cake Pan
  • (1) Cookie Pan Cooling Rack

This particular 10-piece set In my opinion well worth that price as they are nice and heavy (not think and cheap) baking pieces that I am sure you will have for many years.

I found the best price for this set here!  Not easy to find the entire set.  Most places sell individual pieces.

Omie View Bassinet Mirror Review

Disclosure: I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion in this review.

 

Omie View Bassinet Mirror by Aluri, Inc.

First time Mom’s have so much to worry about with a brand new baby.  I know I did over 30 years ago when my son was born.  I can remember waking up in the middle of the night to make sure he was breathing or standing beside the bassinet or his crib and watching his little chest go up and down because I worried about SIDS.  SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) is a huge concern for all moms, especially with new born infants, as it can occur in infants up to 6 months old.  The Omie View mirror is a solution to elevate the worry of not being able to see your baby while they sleep in a bassinet, cradle or crib.

The Omie View Bassinet Mirror is the first and only of its kind. The Omie View Bassinet Mirror was created to allow parents/caregivers to monitor a baby resting in a bassinet. Due to the design of most bassinets, it is practically impossible to see the baby unless you are standing or sitting up in bed, right next to the bassinet. The Omie View Bassinet Mirror provides an added range of view of the inside of the bassinet, without the parent/caregiver needing to get up from the bed or sofa, or even be able to multi task around the house while having clear view of the baby resting. This is not a camera or app that requires loading or anything else–this is real time, real image of your baby at the moment you need it. And the Omie View is as mobile as your bassinet or playpen; take it with you or move it around wherever you take your bassinet; quickly adjust it as needed with the remote control as many times as you need to.

The Omie View Bassinet Mirror has a convenient remote control that you can keep with you to adjust the angle of the mirror and a night light as well.

Here is a short video I have prepared to show you how it operates.

The Omie View Bassinet Mirror is available to purchased at on their website at https://www.omieview.com/product/omie-view-bassinet-mirror/

I believe this product would make a wonderful gift for any mom to be or any new mom to give them peace of mind.

Here is a video that the inventor has created to give you some information about the product and why she invented it.  Omi View Bassinet Mirror

Celery Juice – the benefits of juicing!

Disclosure: I received a sample (as described below) to conduct my review for this blog post.  All opinions stated in this post are truthful and mine alone.  Receiving a sample(s) of this product in no way influenced my opinion in this review.

As many of you know I have a battery of medical issues that have crept up in the last few years.  One of which is a ton of inflammation in my body causing Fibromyalgia and Arthritis.  I am always looking for a new holistic or natural way to cut the inflammation and I came across a book entitled Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease by Anthony Williams.

I am a firm believer in the theory that inflammation in our bodies can cause a multitude of medical issues.  Mr. Williams believes that a toxic liver is the root of most of the issues listed in the title of his book. I have read hundreds of testimonials from people who bought his book and applied his suggestions that cured their afflictions.  For this reason I decided to give celery juicing a try.

In the weeks to come I will update you on how my journey with celery juice is going so stay tuned.

The kind folks at TheGrommet.com sent me this amazing Novis 4 in 1 juicer so that I could give juicing a try.

TheGrommet.com has a variety of unique gifts and innovative products from local marketers and small businesses for the most difficult person on your gift-giving list. From unique baby gifts to fresh ground spices, TheGrommet.com has so many wonderful gifts to choose from and many with free shipping.

Supporting small and local businesses is something that most people don’t think about when making a purchase.  We are all guilty of going to mass marketers thinking we will save a bundle but that’s not always the case.  I have found that supporting local and small businesses can yield the same prices if you just ask the owners.  For this reason I try to support my local area businesses as much as possible and you should too.

TheGrommet.com has gathered some amazing unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list.  Each product that they carry has a story about the manufacturer or creator of that product which adds an interesting and personal touch.  I very much enjoyed reading the personal stories from the product inventors/creators on how they conceived the idea for their products.

About the juicer:

This amazing 4 in 1 juicer is manufactured by Novis and developed in Switzerland. The Novis Vita Juicer carries a 5 out of 5 star customer rating. This four function juicer (citrus press, press and centrifuge, juicer, and pureer) extracts up to 20% more juice, that’s more nutrient-dense (with less pulp) than some other juicers can. One button is all it takes to make quick work of fruits and veggies, including bananas and leafy greens. A wide-feed chute automatically pulls in fruits and vegetables and the drop spout eliminates drips. All the parts go in the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

The juicer comes in 7 amazing colors which you can see on TheGrommet.com

So here is a video I prepared to demonstrate how easy it is to operate the Novis Vita Juicer. If my video instructions are not clear to you please do visit The Grommet’s wensite for more detailed video instructions and receipts.

I was very impressed with the ease of operation and easy clean up on this unit.  I have owned juicers in the past and got so discouraged with their lack of producing juice and the time consuming clean up that I wind up giving them away or selling them.  The unit is quiet (most you cannot hear yourself above the motor) and produces a good amount of juice with little waste.

I highly recommend if you are going to invest in a juicer to spend the money and get one that will last.  Cheap juicers are just that cheaply made and the motor will burn out quickly and not produce much juice. Do the research and you will find that the Novis Vita Juicer is one of the best on the market today.  The Novis Vita Juicer is one of Oprah’s favorite things as featured in Oprah Magazine.
