NEW! Whole Grain Honey Bunches of Oats Review!


This year has been of changes. Our main change is our eating habits. After Tom's heart bypass, we have had to cut down on salt, fats and sugars. We have had to start eating better and healthier. We are eating more fruit, vegetables and whole grains. We have also had to start eating 3 meals a day. It has been hard because we didn't always eat breakfast and that's the toughest meal for us.

Luckily, I was asked to review the new whole grain Honey Bunches of Oats. Since I am now looking for new products to incorporate into our lifestyle, I said yes. I know it has sugars and fat but before we give up everything, we have to start somewhere. With Tom, I have to slowly wean him off the bad foods and get him used to eating healthier.



The new whole grain Honey Bunches of Oats were the place to start. With no trans fat, it is already better for him than eggs or other breakfast foods. I also know he is getting his fiber which he needs to keep his digestive health up and also a diet high in fiber helps reduce heart disease and lowers cholesterol.

For us, it is a great alternative to more sugary cereals and fatty foods. Plus, it tastes good. It tastes really really good. The grains stay crunchy in milk and with the little bunches of vanilla and honey, it makes for a great pick me up in the morning. It is also a good treat for us since we have started to eat less flavorful food!



We alternate Honey Bunches of Oats with oatmeal and egg white omelettes but it is an always welcome treat in the morning. If Tom likes it, then we will keep it in our breakfast rotation.

You can find New Whole Grain Honey Bunches of Oats at your local grocery store! It comes in 2 flavors: Honey Bunches of Oats Whole Grain with Vanilla Bunches and Honey Bunches of Oats Whole Grain Honey Crunch. Both are delicious! Try it if you need to have more fiber in your diet yet want a tasty meal in the morning. Don't say anything but I also eat it as a treat at night!

Osteo Bi-Flex® Review and Giveaway!


Getting old is no fun. I have noticed that more and more, my old joints are getting more sore. I was volunteering at the Greek Festival in town this week. I had to stand for a couple of hours and when I got home, my knees were aching my back was sore and I had to rest. I also have to ice my knee every time I exercise. As I have gotten older, my joints are starting to betray me. It's just something that happens. It is not only my knees but also my back, my arms and my ankles. I don;t like it. So I started doing something about.



I am currently taking Osteo Bi-Flex® supplements to combat joint pain. I take Osteo Bi-Flex® One Per Day daily and when I know I am going to be on my feet or I am going to do a strenuous exercise routine, I take Osteo Bi-Flex® Triple Strength. I figured I better start doing something to help my joints last a few more years especially since I have been trying to get healthier and exercise more.


Osteo Bi-Flex® provides nourishing ingredients like glucosamine, we are helping to strengthen our joints as they gradually deteriorate with age. Glucosamine helps keep the cartilage in joints healthy. As we age, natural glucosamine levels drop which can lead to gradual deterioration of the joint. While there are some “joint friendly” foods, it’s difficult to get glucosamine from your everyday diet. Osteo Bi-Flex® combines glucosamine with other ingredients such as chondriotin and MSM which can help with joint comfort, joint flexibility, and joint mobility.

It never hurts to try supplements that can help you. I know that I needed to find something. As I age, things are breaking down and I want to ensure I slow that down. I know I cannot avoid getting old but I can try and build up my joints so I can continue being active! And these products are not for people like me who have gotten older. These products can help people younger than me because it will slow down the deterioration of their joints!


It's never too early or too late to ensure that your joints are healthy. If you want to try Osteo Bi-Flex® One Per Day or Osteo Bi-Flex® Triple Strength you can find them at online retailers and your local grocery and drug stores. If you want to win an Osteo Bi-Flex® prize pack that includes the One Per Day and Triple Strength supplements along with a tote bag and water bottle, then enter below on the Rafflecopter widget.
