Sweetheart Nuggets {Recipe, Review, and Giveaway with Harvestland chicken and Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts}

February is here!  Time to go out of our way to show our love for our family and friends.

Out of love for my kiddos, I’ve been trying to put some of my frugal ways aside to ensure that I am feeding them some of the best foods possible.  Products from companies such as Harvestland and Manitoba Harvest help me to feed my family foods that I can feel good about.

I have a fun recipe to share made with Harvestland Chicken Breasts and Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts and a GIVEAWAY of both, so you can make it yourself!

Frontier Soups Homemade in Minutes: quick, easy, healthy {Review}

I am all about things that make life easier for this work-from-home Momma of a two and three year old!

When I don’t have a meal planned or things get too crazy to follow my plan, we usually tend to drop the whole healthy plan and quick and easy comes first!

I’m so happy to have found Frontier Soups through Moms Meet. Now, we have some delicious options in the pantry (not taking up valuable space in the fridge) that I can throw together with only a couple other ingredients and they are ready in 30 to 45 minutes.

Frontier Soup Mixes

Frontier offers a variety of mixes and I was sent six varieties for review:

  • South of the Border Tortilla Soup Mix
  • Connecticut Chicken Noodle Soup Mix
  • Florida Sunshine Red Pepper Corn Chowder Soup Mix
  • West Coast Kale and Quinoa Vegetable Soup Mix
  • Mississippi Delta Tomato Basil Soup Mix
  • Little Schoolhouse Alphabet Soup Mix

My new preschooler was thrilled to try the Alphabet Soup and had a blast finding all the “mmm’s.”

The soup was full of flavor! There are a ton of all-natural herbs to take the place of any added salt, preservatives, or MSG. All I had to do was add some chicken broth that we always have in the pantry and some cooked chicken that I keep in the freezer. It was ready in no time!

The second soup we tried was the Red Pepper Corn Chowder.

I had to make a special trip to the store for some half and half, but I was so excited to use my homemade stock from the night before. I also added a few scallops for my husband and myself. This soup was great! It definitely had a kick to it, although my spice-obsessed husband may report differently.

I can’t wait to try the other mixes too – this is the perfect meal to have on hand as Fall is in full swing and winter is on it’s way! Next, I think I have to try the Kale and Quinoa Mix – sounds like a big dose of healthy deliciousness!

My little lady especially loved the cute veggie kitchen towel that came with our Frontier Soups!

Y’know I jump at the chance to review new things, so when healthier cookies came up for review through Moms Meet I jumped extra high!

Who doesn’t love cookies!?!

Ginny Bakes is an awesome line of gluten free, vegan, non-gmo pre-packaged cookies, minis, fruit and nut bars, and baking mixes. They are delicious!

Indulge Mindfully

This is something I’m working on…  As I work to get to my healthy goal weight, I seem to have more success with an all-or-nothing approach.  I’ve been struggling this past year with finding balance.  My goal has been to incorporate treats into my life in a way that is still in line with a healthy lifestyle but without leaving me feeling deprived.

It’s still a work in progress and my biggest struggle.  Healthy meals are easier, stopping with just a small treat is hard!


Luckily, Ginnybakes line of products include so many tasty treat that I can feel good indulging in.

The pre-packaged cookies come in a huge variety of flavors and are super tasty!  As with most gluten-free treats, there is a bit of a firmer texture but plenty of flavor!  My favorite were the Butter Crisp Love cookies – they are so buttery and yummy!

Once I had a little more time, my Little Lady and I made some Chocolate Chip cookies using the baking mix.

Yum! Soft and delicious!

Ginnybakes also has a line of fruit and nut bars that are so good!  I love something I can take on the go. My absolute favorite is the apricot bar. I wish for that one all the time!

Another convenient snacking option are the Ginnybakes Minis. I brought these along to our summer activities for the kids. I also had a little fun and made mini banana “ice cream” sandwiches with them.
