Love With Food--June 2013

I did not receive this box for FREE......I paid with my own money for the box.
(1) I really liked the idea that when you order a box that it has a different theme every month
(2) Every box you order, a meal gets donated to a hungry child
(3) Shipping is very fast and arrives within 3 days after they send you a e-mail on the 10th of every month telling you it is shipping.
My Box Arrived in very god shape and can easily be re-used for something
(Saving mine for Christmas)
Wrapped up very pretty!
So far at this point, I really think the entire concept of this box is going to be very nice and I can not wait to get it unwrapped to see my goodies.
Coupons for Soy Joy & a $50 Gift Card for
Great Deal Right?
Not so much on the Gift Card because here is where they catch you.
$50 Credit when you spend $51
You MUST buy at least 6 bottles (Lowest cost bottle is $12.49 each)
You pay Shipping Charges on orders under $100.00
My order with 6 Bottles of the same wine ($12.49 each) Plus S&H Fee 
+ Taxes
I am not impressed at all by this gift card and will not use it, But at the same time
I consider this as a added bonus so in the end it does not affect the value of the box contents.
I know what you are thinking because I thought the same thing too
I still stand by this opinion with a plain one, however if you dip these into spinach dip, these are very delicious together and really compliment each other. Plain is not the way to go with these.
Value $2.50 (My personal opinion)
Plantain Chips I got excited to see these and to also be able to try them.
They were a very salty sweet combination and that always is good in my book.
I truly loved these chips.
Value $1.25 (My personal opinion)
Beach Theme........Considering I love the beach, this was right up my alley.
I love it!

Coconut and Mango Fruit Ice.
Can we say "Yummy"
Is all you do is put this in the freezer for about 1 hour and make a drink for yourself using the recipe
that was provided or use your own recipe.
Perfect for a hot summer day!
Value $1.00 (My personal opinion)
Blood Orange Hard Candy
It is good for a quick fix when you need something sweet to eat.
Value $0.25 (My personal opinion)
Pineapple Soy Joy Bar
Not a flavor that I thought I would like, but it is very tasty and slightly sweet but
healthy for you. I truly can see myself buying these as a healthier snack compared to what I eat now.
Value $2.00 (My personal opinion)
Surf Sweets Fruit Bears
"Bears Oh My!"
Well lets just say these are simply DELICIOUS and I can not believe they are
Organic and healthy for you. Wish I had more to eat :-)
Value $1.00 (My personal opinion)


Flavrz Superfruit Water Enhancer
I love water enhancers because it gets very boring just having
plain water all the time. Flavrz is really delicious, healthy & eco-friendly.
Much better then soda and your body will Thank You.
Value $1.30 (My personal opinion)
Pur Gum-- Pomegranate
This is a bit tougher then others gums, I have had in the past, however
this is really good and healthy.
Value $1.50 (My personal opinion)
Do More Bars
Pineapple Coconut
WOW! This is like a Rice Krispie treat party of flavor
in your mouth. Who would have thought of doing something like this with a Rice Krispie Treat.

Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Filippo Berio® Extra Virgin Olive Oil Review
I received my BzzAgent Campaign for FREE
I was very excited to get this Campaign and try this Olive Oil out and make a few things with it in my spare time & also try using it in something not associated to cooking (we will get to that later).

 (1) Bubble Wrap......Gosh I feel like a kid every time I get this stuff Haha!
(2) Full size bottle of Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
(3) Substitution Chart/Magnet showing how easy it is to use Olive Oil Vrs Butter, Margarine & other cooking oils
(4) Packet of coupons to share with Family & Friends $1.00 Off
I boiled up some plain old Publix Brand spaghetti noodles, once cooked, I drizzled the Filippo Berio EVOO over them & added a little salt & pepper for added flavor/taste. I did try them just like this and they were different from just having butter on them with parmesan cheese like I usually do. Since the whole process of this test is trying to use EVOO in place of butter, I did that & I have to say that I did actually think the flavor was very different but in a good way & is something I can get use to over time.
After making the noodles and trying them without anything, I drizzled some of the Filippo Berio EVOO in a pan, tossed in some sausage, Green & Red Peppers, Zucchini, carrots, Garlic (tubed found in fresh produce isle at Publix), Tomatoes & little salt & pepper for flavor/taste.
I put this combination on the bottom of my plate & added the noodles with some Garlic Bread & called it a Delicious Dinner.
(just to name a few)
Vitamins A, D, E & K
High in monounsaturated fats
Can help to promote a healthy weight with physical activity
It has been said that Olive Oil helps against certain things like Cancer, Heart Disease
 +Lots More

Take 1 part Filippo Berio EVOO 1 Part Lemon Juice--Mix together and you have a all natural wood polisher for all the wood in your home. I use this about 1 time a week and I can see such a big difference in how the wood looks now compared to other leading brand wood polishers I have used & best of all, it is all natural & adds a fresh lemony scent to my home.
Lubricate those squeaky door hinges with just a little drizzle of Filippo Berio  EVOO-- Who needs WD40 right?
Put a little Filippo Berio  EVOO in a spray bottle & spritz that frizzy hair while at the same time, you are adding moisture to your hair and saving $$$'s on beauty products that rarely do what they are suppose to do anyways.
Here kitty kitty! Add 1Tsp of Filippo Berio EVOO to your cats food to help prevent hairballs and also this adds a nice soft coat of fur for your little guy/girl.
(You can also do this for your dog's food for a nice soft coat of fur)
Lice is always a issue with young children in school, so try this remedy out. Apply Filippo Berio  EVOO to child's hair 1/4 cup or less), leave on for 40 minutes, shampoo twice, apply a lice preventative (follow instructions).
+ Lots more uses
I simply hope that you have enjoyed my review and next time you are at the store, grab a bottle of Filippo Berio  EVOO & try it yourself, it will not disappoint.

I received these from my BzzAgent Campaign for FREE
I have to say that I have never used Dr Scholl's inserts before and I was intrigued when this Campaign became available. I am always on my feet and lead a "On The Go" life that never leaves me in one spot for very long.
When I received my Campaign I was so happy to get these baby's in my shoes and give them a run around the block and see how they were going to perform and hold up. I was very skeptical because I am not a tiny women and a lot of products like this are just not friendly to plus size men/women.

I have had these on for a few days now and have been doing my normal routine of a half hour walk each day, running errands, cooking cleaning and just constantly on the move. I have had a 100% better feeling in my feet since using these in my cheaply made running shoes from Wal-Mart in the past 2 days. I feel like my feet are wrapped up in a nice cushion of bubble wrap (if yoy have ever put your feet on bubble wrap, you know the feeling I am talking about.). At the end of the day when I take off my shoes they do not feel tired and achy as they did previous days before using these. 
I do feel these are made very well for the price you are paying at Wal-Mart is around $10.00 & this is not a bad deal for these & with someone around 60lbs over weight like myself, I would say these are going to last me about 5 months before I would have to replace them again. For someone not over weight, I would think they would last at least 8-12 months.
(This is just my own thoughts & this does not say this anywhere on the packaging)
All together I think this is worth the cost and the comfort if you are like me and buy the affordable shoes from Wal-Mart and a pair of the Dr Scholl's Massaging Gel Inserts vrs a $100.00 pair of shoes that only last 1yr.  
Your feet will Thank You!

Sizes Available Men Sizes 8-13

$4.00 Off Coupon (for a friend/family member)
Little BzzAgent Campaign Card
I gave my coupon to my Mother N Law whom is buying a pair in a few days when she gets paid.
She tried them in her shoes & fell in love with them.
(she is only 20lbs over weight, so these will probably last here 8-12 months easily.)
I hope you have found this review to be helpful as well as money saving!
