Are You Getting Enough Fiber?


OmniGreen Labs Dietary Fiber.Sometimes it is hard to get enough fiber in your diet. Especially when you are not eating at set meal times. I have had that problem lately.

If you are grabbing whatever you can get from fast food places or convenience stores, then you may not be getting enough fiber.

Even if you are eating regular meals at home it isn’t always easy to get enough fiber.

Without fiber your digestive system doesn’t work nearly as well as it should, and if that goes on long enough you can end up with some serious problems. Lack of fiber is one of the contributing causes of colon cancer. So it is an important part of a good diet.

Adding fiber to your diet is easy with this Fiber Powder from OmniGreen Labs. It even comes with a little scoop so you can easily get the right dosage.

Each serving has 4 grams of Fiber. If you are not used to having fiber in your diet you should probably start off with a small dose and work your way up to the full recommended dosage of two servings a day.

This powder completely dissolves in a glass of water.

Water with a dose of OmniGreen Labs Fiber Powder in it.It has no taste that I can detect and it doesn’t thicken the water. You can add the fiber to any drink you want to put it in. Or add it to your food. Take it however you want to.

This product has no preservatives, chemicals, artificial colors, or flavors in it. It is made in an FDA approved c-GMP Certified Facility.

The package is not fancy, just a fairly plain white jar.

The fiber has helped my digestive system.  I have had a problem with regularity the last few months and that has gotten much better since I started adding the fiber to my diet.  It should continue to improve as my system gets used to the addition.

I like this fiber. It is easy to use.

I received a free product to review.

Thinking About Starting A Diet Program?

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Diet-to-Go is offering Free meals for a day. That comes to $20 savings.

Free meals for a day.

So if you were thinking about joining a meal delivery diet program this would be a good time.

And there is still time to loose enough weight to fit into that bathing suit before it gets really hot! Maybe. Depends on how much you need to lose. It will take me a bit longer than that(it is already getting pretty hot here).

This company delivers some really great food that is made fresh, frozen, and shipped out each week. They have several different diets to choose from for those who have special needs.

There is the Traditional Low Fat Diet Meal Plan which is the one I chose to review last summer. This one has some really delicious meals included.

They also have a Vegetarian and a Low-Carb meal plan.

Check out this post from last summer for more information.

Diet-To-Go Meal Delivery Review


I’ve always wondered about those meal delivery plans you see advertised on TV but was scared to try any of them because of the cost. After all what if you spent all that money and then the food tasted terrible and you ended up not being able to eat it?

So getting the chance to try out a whole weeks worth of food from Diet-to-Go seemed sort of like winning a prize!

The Diet-To-Go logo.

Not only would we get to check the program out but I would get to go a whole week without cooking! Well without cooking much anyway. We only got meals for one person so we (my hubby and I) ended up splitting the meals.

He ate most of the dinners and I ate most of the lunches because he was gone during the day. We shared the breakfasts :).

I actually ended up resenting him taking any of the breakfast meals because I really liked the Mushroom Strata and the Asparagus and Swiss Fritatta. I had never heard of a Fritatta before and wouldn’t have thought of having asparagus for breakfast in any form. It was really good!

The only two meals I ended up not caring much for were the Turkey Burger and the Thai Turkey Tenderloin. The Thai was way too spicy for me! If we were to order more of these I would have to substitute something else for that because hubby can’t handle really spicy food either. I would probably get an extra Macaroni and Cheese dinner instead. Diet-To-Go lets you switch out any meals you don’t like for something you do like. As many as you want!

You can choose from several different plans too. The traditional low fat meal plan, the low-carb plan, or the vegetarian plan.  Each plan comes in either a 1200 calorie(for women) or 1600 calorie(for men) version. That is because most women need fewer calories than men…some women might need more depending on starting weight and fitness.

Their website has a diet analysis form you can fill out with your height, weight, age and activity level and it will recommend a calorie level for you. I liked that since I didn’t really know how much I should be eating.

The food comes vacuum packed in dry ice in a really neat Styrofoam cooler. The styrofoam cooler the Diet-To-Meals arrived in.

Vacuum wrappted grilled cheese lunch from Diet-To-Go.The meals come with everything you need for that meal. I received several different things to go with my breakfasts as well as all the condiment needed for the lunches. Everything was covered!

Yogurt and orange juice for breakfasts.

I really really liked that! You don’t have to cook anything else or buy anything else to go with the meals. They included the marmalade and preserves for the muffins, the breadsticks for the salads, and ketchup for the burgers!

You do need to supply the drinks for lunch and dinner if you want those. I usually only drink water these days because everything else is so fattening and I really don’t need any empty calories.

The only thing about the meal plan I don’t much care for is the price. Me and my hubby both need to lose weight and it would cost about $200 bucks a week just for lunch and dinner.  That seem to be on the cheaper side as diet delivery plans go. Some of them cost that much for one person.

I”m thinking that would be money well spent. We have been working on the weight loss thing for ages and not having a lot of success. Having good healthy food that we like delivered once a week might be just the thing to get us on the right track and since we won’t want to have wasted the money we might try harder!

Their website also says that they will work with you on setting up a program that is right for you. So I might be able to get a program set up that doesn’t include all the lunches, since he isn’t here to eat them. They also say they can adjust the frequency or amount of food you are receiving.

If you are looking for a meal delivery plan that has good food then this one should definitely be a contender!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Brothers All-Natural Fruit Crisps Review

Brothers All-Natural Fruit Crisps Review


brothers all natural strawberry and banana crisps.I recieved a package that included a variety of different Brothers All-Natural Fruit Crisps.  Included in the package were Fuji Apple, Asian Pear, Strawberry-Banana, Pineapple, Banana, and Peach. It also included some Disney products such as Donald Duck Pears and Mickey Fuji Apple.

All of them were good. I didn’t care so much for the pears but I have never liked pears much.

I loved the Strawberry-Banana ones. My husband didn’t care for the Banana…which is weird because he loves fresh Bananas. I think it must be the texture that he didn’t care for as the taste is pretty much the same so far as I could tell.

These are certainly a lot better for you than potato chips. Most of them only 35 calories per serving. Which is a lot less calories than in one serving of potato chips.  And they have NO fat! Which is really great.

I like that these come in one serving bags too. So you know exactly how much you are getting. And if you want to eat more than one serving you have to actually make an effort to open another bag!

Lots of snacks these days are sneaky…they put several servings in a bag and if you are not careful you will eat way more than you think you are.

These fruit crisps seem to be very healty snacks. They are certainly better than a lot of fatting snacks you can find these days. And if you can’t have fresh fruit all the time then these will help make up for that too.

The packages only contain dried fruit. Freeze dried fruit. The packages say on the front 100% fruit! There is no sugar or preservatives and they are also gluten free, dairy free, and kosher.

Great Tasting New Slim Fast Drinks

Great Tasting New Slim Fast Drinks

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Slim-Fast has some new diet drinks out now. Me and my husband  tried the Cappuccino Delight flavored ones. They were really good. I think he would actually drink these. And so would I.

That was always the main problem with diet drinks for us. We would buy them and they would sit in the fridge forever and not be used. They don’t do you any good at all if you don’t actually use them!

I definitely like these better than the older ones that came in the can. I can carry them with me when I’m taking him to work and not feel like I have to drink it really fast. Those bottles look nice too!

Slim Fast Bottle

These new drinks are part of the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 plan which includes three snacks, two shakes or meal bars, and one balanced 500 calorie meal per day.

The snacks can be fruits, nuts, veggies, or some of Slim-Fasts 100 calorie snack bars. I like that you can do either the shake OR the meal bar. Changing things up would probably make it easier for me to do.

The drinks are really filling as well. My husband especially liked that. He said he actually felt like he had eaten and wasn’t craving something else to go with it.

You can buy these new snakes and other Slim-Fast products in the Pharmacy sections of stores like Wal-mart, Target, Safeway, and Kroger and online at Amazon.com or the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook.

Dr. Sears Zone 1-2-3 Cookies Review and Giveaway

Dr. Sears Zone 1-2-3 Cookies Review and Giveaway

Zone Cookie Packs The Zone 1-2-3 cookies are wonderful! I received a pack containing the Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies, Milk Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and the Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These cookies come in their own wrapping so you can open just one at a time. This is a really good thing because one is enough!

These are big cookies and very satisfying. It satisfied my craving for chocolate and sweets with just one cookie! Of course there are 200 calories in each one(according to the wrapper on the ones I got-the website says 190).

But if I had been eating regular cookies I most likely would have eaten a lot more calories…most of it sugar and other carbs. I very rarely manage to eat only one cookie.  The calories and fat add up without you even paying attention!

These cookies have less sugar and carbohydrates and more protein than normal cookies. My dad tried them and he said they seemed more like granola bars to him. He liked them but he thought they were too big.

These are part of the Zone 1-2-3 program that is supposed to help you lose weight the healthy way and keep it off. They say it works by keeping your insulin from getting too high which helps control hunger and lowers cellular inflammation.

I would love to try the whole 1-2-3 Zone diet myself even if it does still require cooking. Maybe I can talk them into letting me review the two week program. Otherwise it will have to wait till we recover from the Holidays. I’ll probably have even more weight to lose by then!

The wonderful Zone Diet people have generously offered to give 3 of my U.S. followers the chance to try these cookies for themselves! They don’t want to ship internationally because the cookies might spoil if customs took too long (it has happened) or the mail was delayed for other reasons.

If you would like to try these cookies just enter for a chance to try them free! The sponsor is asking that people who have won before not enter. So be aware that if you are entering multiple giveaways for the cookies you can only win once.

Enter on the Rafflecopter form below. If the form isn’t showing just refresh the page…that usually fixes it. If it still isn’t working please contact me!

The 3 winners will be emailed and will have 48 hours to reply before new winners are chosen. The cookies will be shipped by the sponsor.
