Ambro_prod_5

Ambronite is a nutritional drink intended to supply all of a human body’s daily needs, made from 20 ingredients, including spinach and wild sea-buckthorn. Ambronite’s name is based on the Greek word for “food of the Gods”

I was contacted by Valerie from Ambronite to see if I would like to try their product. Well after reading about it, I was like YES, please. Talk about being excited waiting to receive a shipment.  I was pumped. So while waiting I started reading and stalking them on Social Media. Instagram Pics. Tweets, you name it, I was hooked. So once I received it, it was a test of wills for me. I wanted to try it on an upcoming flight to Florida I had coming up, so I had to look at this box for 1 week before being able to try it.

I always get crazy hungry when I travel. Not sure why really, it’s mostly just sitting and waiting when starting your journey by plane. Must be the boredom and thought of being in a capsule with nowhere to go that does it. SO first let’s get down to what this product is.

Organic Drinkable Meal

Ambronite is a quick and healthy drinkable shake. Each bag contains one full meal (500 kcal) of all of your essential nutrients.

Ambronite goes where you do; Home, office, in your bag and on your travels and outdoor adventures.

Packed with natural goodness and free of artificial nasties, it tastes of oats and fresh nuts with a hint of Nordic herbs and berries. The pure, neutral taste mixes well with water, juices and your favorite fruit.

Get over hunger for 4-5 hours

-Boost your productivity and stay in flow
-Avoid afternoon sleepiness and sugar rush
-Concentrate on what you do best
-Get everything your body needs
-Only organic real-food, no cheap supplements

Full 100% meal for optimal productivity / Satisfies hunger fast, gives steady energy for 4-5 hours / With new improved Ambronite v3 recipe

Ambronite. The super-meal, to help you live your whole life. Beautiful packing and lovely green color caught my eye, but it was the flavor and healthy benefit that really won me over.

DSC_2273

Food for a modern lifestyle

We believe that a creative and ambitious individuals deserve the best possible food to live life to the fullest. Food has a critical impact on our productivity and happiness. Our daily meals should let us do more of what we love.

Ambronite is your unfair advantage

We’ve crafted a drinkable supermeal to give you more freedom, time and choice. With Ambronite, you can boost your productivity and stay in flow. Ambronite takes away your hunger for 4-5 hours in a few minutes. Instead of distractions and afternoon sleepiness, you can concentrate on what you do best.

Here is my experience:

So on my way to the airport I drank my Supermeal. I really wanted to see if it would hold over my hunger for 3-4 hours possibly 5 if any flight delays occurred. Well it did. I had a late flight to Fort Myers to go visit my friend Jody. Leaving at 6:45pm and arriving at 11:00pm, I really did not want to be tempted by expensive and unhealthy food in the airport. I always have healthy snacks packed but I wanted to have a very healthy meal prior to traveling to help keep me healthy and my immune system working well while I traveled. Just being on a plane can get you sick with all the germs and people who travel while they are sick.

So I am one of those people who love texture in foods and smoothies. I like to have a little chew or bite when making smoothie bowls and eating oatmeal. I love the texture of grains and I really love chewy grains. I love the flavor of oats. This product is amazing. It mixed up easily with just a few shakes. It had real texture and real flavor of the natural ingredients. You can truly taste the greens in this. Healthy greens and grains. Perfect combo. I do not want fake flavors, with sugary ingredients. I want real and with this Ambronite Supermeal it WAS REAL.  I honestly do not think I have ever tried a product I was so happy with. This stuff is the real deal. Healthy, Easy to Make, Great flavor and Convenient anywhere any time.

Just perfect as a total meal replacement.

I also had a packet on hand with me over the week-end so I could have it on my way home! Again, it did not disappoint. I just mixed and enjoyed on the flight home.

Just a few of my favorite Skull things! I don’t ever think of my self as having any particular fashion style I just wear what I like and what brings me joy.  Being in my mid 40’s I still don’t think I will ever be too old to wear my skull clothing, or express my personal style. I plan on being a hip old chick. I plan on rockin’ funky color nails, fun jewelry and clothing that I love.

Hello and Cheers to July. Started out with a small post and it quickly changed into a huge post with losts of recaps. Just felt like I had so much to share, I just went with it.

1055

Totally loving my Michigan Bamboo Cutting Board! I love my Michigan Mitt.

Enjoying some good Michigan Weather.1124

 

We have had some beautiful sunsets lately. Snapped this one just in time.

Recently tried a new Sun screen from Block Island Organics. They sent me a bottle to try out. I really have to work getting into a routine of using sunscreen more regularly. With being on the boat and on the motorcyle, I really need to be better at applying and reapplying. I usally do not burn and tan very easy. So with that I tend to be more relaxed about using sunscreen, but with age I have realized that I am not doing myself any favors. At 46 I have to take better care of my skin. So here is a look at Block Island Organics Sun Care SPF 30.

DSC_2219

 

NATURAL MINERAL SUNSCREEN SPF 30
An ultra lightweight, non-nano and instantly absorbing natural mineral sunscreen great for babies, kids and adults….

Play Smart. Play Safe.

Visit Block Island and you will find a culture that celebrates life, the outdoors, and making time with friends and family the first priority. The people and values of Block Island’s local community combined with its stunning natural beauty and impressive conservation efforts form the back bone of our company. We hope to embody that Block Island spirit in our brand, bottle it, and bring it to you in the form of safe, quality, and lovable non-toxic suncare and skin care products so you too can get outside and play.

DSC_2221

 

The ingredients (from the website)

We believe ingredients matter. Thus, we pledge full disclosure of our ingredients and our reasons for choosing them. We intend to build a brand that can be trusted to consistently create great quality and safe products while keeping in mind affordability. That means sometimes we don’t choose the certified organic ingredient because it would cause us to raise our prices too much. Our goal is to keep our prices as low as possible to make our products affordable to as many as possible. The safety of our ingredients is and will always be a top priority. We believe our formulas are the optimal balance of quality, safety, and affordability.

My thoughts:

I just tossed it in my boat bag and applied. First off it smelled good, and spread out on my skin with ease. I always get fustrated when I have to work hard to apply sunscreen evenly. We spent a few hours on the boat and then headed out on the bike for a 3 hour ride.  So I applied it 3 times in the day and a few things I noticed. It did not get sticky or messy. It absorbed and did what it was supposed to do and protected my skin. I also noticed that it covered much better that the normal sunscreen spay that I use. I also realized that my skin felt soft and not dried out. So even after a full day of boating and being out in the sun and also being on a motorcycle with the wind beating me up my skin still felt hydrated. Gotta say I really loved trying and using Block Island Sunscreen.

About Block Island

“One of the Last 12 Great Places in the Western Hemisphere” ~The Nature Conservancy

Block Island Organics is built on the values and natural beauty that is Block Island, Rhode Island. Only 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, but feeling like a world away, Block Island is a welcome step back in time to a place where shorts and t-shirts are seen in the finest restaurants, phone numbers are exchanged with just four digits, and the homes are without street addresses.

At the heart of Block Island is a commitment to protecting the environment and a celebration of life spent enjoying the outdoors. In addition to being home to more than 40 rare or endangered species, over 40% of open space on the island is protected by an ardent community of conservationists. When not drumming up support for another environmental cause, Block Islanders spend their leisure time walking the 17 miles of beach or the 28 mile network of hiking trails called the Greenway Trails. Numerous other land and water activities including fishing, sailing, clamming, diving, biking, windsurfing, kayaking, yoga, pilates, surfing and just sitting on a porch or the beach pass the time as well. It is this commitment to environmentalism and this celebration of outdoors life that forms the values and core of Block Island Organics. We hope you come visit our island, unwind and get a little break from modern-day stresses, and remember to wear sunscreen!

Store Locator: Sold mostly online, Please go to www.blockislandorganics.com.

Some good cooking going on over here lately.

 

I am hooked on Blue Apron. We have been ordering it about two times a month for about 6 months and I really love this service. The variety and quality is amazing. Posted a ton of dinners in this Previous Post.

Made one of my favorite easy go to meals. StoneFire Naan Flatbread Pizza.

Just used what I had on hand and threw it all on.

Yummy.

 

DSC_2211

 

Naan is great to have on hand for so many easy dishes. Plus its great to have on hand for the weeks I do not get a Blue Apron order. Throwing a pizza together is super easy. I linked a previous post on Naan Here. I also just like to use it to dip into my hummus for lunch.

 

Organizing my everyday portable essential oils for summer has kept me busy. I love my oils and have been using them for over 10 years for everything from cuts, headaches, bug bites and household cleaners. I love seeing it being used more and more now in people’s homes. I  cannot remember the last time I used store bought house-hold cleaners.

1021

I love creating and making homemade bug spray. Here is the link to my recipe from a previous post.

bug

Here’s the Recipe I Use:

  • 4 ounces Witch Hazel
  • 4 Ounces Water
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin
  • 15 Drops Tea Tree Oil
  • 15 Drops Citronella Oil
  • 15 Drops Peppermint Oil
  • 15 Drops Eucalyptus Oil
  • 15 Drops Lemon Oil

Mix, Shake Well and put in spray bottles.

Spray usually lasts for a few hours, but is safe to reapply several times throughout the day.

It also has a nice fresh and clean scent!

oils

 

In a previous post I made a DIY Neck Pillow for a gift using Lavender Oil. Essential oils are a huge part of my life. I love making Spa type gifts for my friends and family and introdcing them to the many uses of essential oils.

Here are a few things I am so excited to share…First off I went to Bora Bora. Crazy Right! Check out these pictures. This trip was a celebration of our 20th. Wedding Anniversary.

We flew from Detroit to LA and then boarded Air TahitiNui. It was such a long flight but totally worth it. Once you arrived.

Dreamed of this day for a long time. We started planning this trip over two years ago.

 

IMG_0039

 

I researched every blog, website and review and got some amazing tip on items and things to bring from home. One being tubes and floating rings. So that’s what I did. Brought my own so we could float the day away. I also brought rope to tie off to our deck…Kinda have a fear of being in the Open Ocean.

Four Seasons Bora Bora was the most amazing place to stay on earth. They are amazing hosts. From the first sight of the island to the last they were the most friendly people I have ever met. They really made every single day so special.

Collagen Type 1&3 Benefits:*

Provides specific amino acids necessary to replenishing the body’s collagen supply helps minimize fine lines & wrinkles, and improves elasticity in the skin builds and supports bone matrix, corrects weak, broken, split and damaged nail beds thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity; improves circulation; promotes glycine builds lean muscle to help burn fat while you sleep.

Collagen: The Body’s Anti-Aging Protein

Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body’s major systems.

Although abundant in our youth, the body’s natural collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the tell-tale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis. Super Collagen+C™ utilizes Collagen Types 1&3, which is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.*

DSC_2174

I used NeoCell Biotin Burst every day for 30 days and I did notice some changes in my hair. It did not crack off at the bottom like it normally does and my scalp seemed to be healthier. I normally get really dry scalp around my crown area. I also want to comment on the flavor of the chews. They are just taste little nuggets of flavor. I really looked forward to them every day. Wonderfully made product and a great website with lots of health items.

I also loved having the Collagen  shakes. The flavor was so good. It mixed well and was easy to just add water and sip on after yoga or a long walk.

This summer I went to New Orleans with my Husband and our Friends. We love this town! This is our Third time visiting this fun and never-ending party town. Our trip was centered around the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Which features Music, Food and Culture.

I love New Orleans, so much so I decided to Get Some Ink.

Fleur-de-lis

So many different venues to visit with so many live bands playing at the same time spread over the entire festival. Always something to do, see, and eat.

555 - CopyWalked about 6 miles checking out the entire festival.

554

They had parades and so many activities happening everywhere you looked.

553

After the Festival it was back to Bourbon Street where we walked the streets and enjoyed the town some more.

515Had a few Specialty Drinks.

504Well it was more than a few.

Had Lots and Lots of Amazing Food.

Speaking of Vacations, I also wanted to share a new candle I just recently tried out for the blog. Sold on Amazon made by Old Factory . These all Natural Soy candles have a variety of scented candles to choose from, I went with Vacation.

017

The prepper in me has already started my Christmas shopping list. With the list comes keeping my eye open for fun gift ideas. Well here is one I was recently lucky enough to score from Old Factory Candle sold exclusively on Amazon.

001

I love opening Packages. I also love candles. I have not had too many soy candles so I am really excited to have a natural burning product like this in my home.

003

Old Factory Candles are sold exclusively on Amazon.com. These candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming cotton candle wicks, and premium fragrance oils. The Old Factory Candle Gift Sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. The subtle jar design makes it the perfect complement for any decor, and any room of the house – kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, family room, great room, and basement. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someone’s in your life.

005

A perfect size candle. With three different tropical scented jars. Jeff and I do travel quite a bit, so the fact that these are small is a huge bonus for me, because I can easily toss them into my bag and have a wonderful comforting scent to enjoy on my trip.

008

It really feels like a Vacation in a box.

007

The Vacation Theme Includes:

Sea Breeze
Hawaiian Lei
Awapuhi

017The packaging is adorable. At the bottom of each candle slot was a cute saying.

012These natural soy candles are hand poured the USA.

010

So I can check one gift off my list. I know a few people who would really love the receive this as a gift. You can never be too prepared.

I gladly rate these candles with five stars, the quality soy wax and wicks, and for the nice fragrance. Great USA made product with wonderful tropical fragrances.

Miami…One of my favorite places to be. My best friend Jody and her husband Ira live in the heart of Miami and I cannot get enough of that City. The restaurants the food the drinks the weather, it all fascinates me. I live in a rural town in Michigan which is the total opposite of the tall buildings and Miami lights.  I thought I’d put together a post of my favorite moments from my trip. Which always include loads of food pictures.

Just wanted to share a post about what I have been up to this summer. To start I am now at a new job! I left my place of employment of 5 years for a new adventure. I am working more hours and am further from home, but I am loving the new responsibilities and learning new skills.  Now on to the good stuff…Weddings, Florida, Food and Fun.

I did some traveling to Florida this summer..Two Trips, and both for weddings! I love weddings.

Our first trip was in May to Key West for our Close Friends daughters wedding.

20130624_191856

I love everything about traveling. The airport, the planes, the anticipation. It all makes me happy. Even when I’m on a flight and experience a delay or a cancellation, I just add it to the excitement of the travel experience. I really just go with the flow. As it so happens there were delays and more delays in both my trips to Florida. So I walked away with flight vouchers from both my flights for future travel! I really see it as a bonus.
20130624_193158

Jeff and I love Key West. We have been there three times now over the years and LOVE it.

086

Here we are relaxing in our condo pool in Key West. This is our very own private pool. This is our second time renting this condo just for the private pool. To quote Kid Rock my theme of this  vacation was “Chillin’ the Most”.

Relaxing.

072

Enjoying the sun. Doing what is required on any good vacation.

We enjoyed Amazing Food. I get so excited about vacations mostly for the fresh fish. Being from Michigan I do not get the quality that I do in Florida for obvious reasons!

046

We enjoyed many Key West Sunsets. Utter Perfection.

054

We ate Lots of Oysters….Lots and Lots of Oysters.

238

We enjoyed lots of dinners out on the town.

039

No trip to Key West would be complete with out a slice of Key Lime Pie. Yum.

040

Favorite meal was this Delicious Scallops and Grits. Ridiculously good.

057

Lots of cocktails.

and the topper on the vacation cake was the Beach Wedding Celebration.

My next trip was in June for my Best Friend Jody’s wedding. I went solo. My husband was already obligated to go to another wedding for a family member. On a side note, we had 5 weddings this summer.

Jody lives in Miami and her wedding was on Marco Island. So I flew into Miami and spent a day there, then we drove to Marco Island for some fun and activities.

One of my favorite things was paddle boarding. This was my first time doing it and I am hooked. This was so much fun and such an amazing workout. Must look into getting my own board one day.

20130621_131516

Here is the wedding party getting our pre-wedding cardio workout in.

Here is my Best Friend Jody…Well I like to call her my Forever Friend. We just had our hair done.

Jody got married on a sunset dinner cruise. The boat was called the Marco Island Princess. It was an amazing venue. Perfect weather, great atmosphere. It truly was a perfect evening. I was a Co-Matron of Honor with Jody’s sister Amy.

Our friendship theme is “I got your back”. So naturally we had to have a picture back to back.

083

After the ceremony I robo-gripped my Jody and gave her the biggest hug I could. I was just so trilled that she found an amazing man to spend her life with. Her husband Ira is the best. It was beyond a special day for me standing at her side as she said her vows. She is like a sister to me and my emotions were overflowing as I looked upon their love and appreciation of one another. It was such a gift to be apart of their special day.

The happy couple listening to the wedding party speeches.

Dinner, Cocktails, then Party Time.

126

 

Fun fact….Back when Jody first moved to Miami from Michigan, I went to see her and during my visit she had her first date with Ira, well I actually went on the first date with them. So for me it was like I was apart of their love right from the start.

127

 

Toasting the Happy Couple.

125

I love weddings. It always bring me back to how I felt on my Cherished day with my husband Jeffrey 18 years ago. Cheers to Love.

Sure hope your summer has been full of celebration and good times.
