Raisin Nut Bran with covered raisins Review. Plus Sales and #coupons! #PlatefullCoOp #spon

This post was inspired by samples from General Mills through Platefull Co-Op. 

Throughout these past two weeks I have been trying out different healthy cereals and seriously forgot how good some of these are. One of my favorites that I got to try out was The Raisin Nut Bran. This isn't the classic though. This one has yogurt covered raisins inside, tons of them, and I love that new addition. I don't know how new this actually is because for some reason I stopped eating cereal for a long while and then I got really into smoothies, and now i'm back to cereal.

 The Raisin nut bran is so yummy. I am hooked on this stuff now and will probably buy another box when I'm out. One of the big reasons I got back into cereal was to get in more fiber and this definitely helps. There is a whopping 5 grams in only a 3/4 cup. It also has only 14 grams of sugar per serving. It's not too sweet at all. I can't stand cereal that is over sweetened. It's a perfect blend and eliminates the need for sugar. The almonds and yogurt covered raisins really bring this up a notch in taste. At only 220 calories per 3/4 cup with a 1/2 cup almond milk, It's hard to turn this down. It's also got a good dose of protein, with 3 grams per serving.

If you are looking for new cereals or are intrigued by how Raisin Bran has changed, you should definitely try it out. It is very tasty and satisfying. Especially in the morning and right before a workout.

Here are some sales going on until January 29th and coupons to stack on top. You can get two boxes for just $4! Hurry, it ends soon!

Cascadian Farms Review, Plus new Sales and #Coupons! #PlatefullCoOp #spon

This post was inspired by product samples from General Mills through Platefull Co-Op.

I love trying new and healthy cereals, as I often need to switch my choices up to stay interested.  That is where healthier sweet options come in.  So, I have been starting my day off with a bowl of Cascadian Farm Organic Fruit and Nut Granola every morning for a few days now.  It really hits the spot and fills me for a good few hours. It's full of fiber, 3 grams in 2/3 cups,  a great and tasty way to get in some of your daily needed fiber. It is also only 230 calories with a 1/2 cup of skim milk. I had mine with unsweetened almond milk, which is about the same amount of calories.

This cereal is filled with chunks of oats, crisp rice, raisins, sunflower seeds, cranberries and slivers of almonds. There was no need for additional sugar, as this is sweetened enough. It is really yummy. 

later I have one of their chocolate granola bars as a mid afternoon snack. If you ever wanted a healthy replacement for a candy bar, you should definitely check out this brand and these specific bars. It is tasty and filling . It doesn't skimp on the chocolate at all, there's just enough without being too much. Great to satiate that junk food craving. They are very chewy and satisying. 

Best of all,  both products are USDA Organic! Which means no GMO's , no synthetic peticides, no chemical fertilizers. They also do not contain any artificial flavors or preservatives. 

This oat granola cereal would be great to mix in for home made oatmeal cookies, which I'll have to try soon! 

Are you looking for something different in cereal. Something Organic and satisfying? If you are,  you can take advantage of their sales going on and the coupons to stack on them! Hurry in, because sales end the 30th!

Apricot Glazed @GortonsSeafood Grilled Tilapia. Plus, #RealFabulous Sweepstakes!

I am a big seafood lover. I love it all, from Shrimp to crab to fresh water fish. My favorite among them all is tilapia though. The reason I like it so much is because it works like a sponge by soaking in any flavor you marinate it in. It's also high protein, very low fat and low cal, yet jam packed with Omega 3 fatty acids and all around just nutritious for you. i have a favorite past time with Gorton's fish sticks as a child. It was my favorite meal and it has been years since I have tried them again, until now. When I had the chance to work with  Gorton's Seafood, I was on board hook, line and sinker to review their Grilled Tilapia. Gorton’s has updated a lot of their entrees and they now have 11 certified gluten free varieties of their popular grilled fish!

Gorton's provided me with coupons to purchase some Grilled Seafood, along with  a nifty spatula, and two oven mitts. I got great use out of these cooking their products. 

I was excited to get dinner going. I chose the Garlic Butter Grilled Tilapia and I thought that it would be paired well with a sweet contrast. So, once out of the oven and piping hot, I decided to spread some organic apricot jam on top. While tasty on their own, I knew that a special topping would make them zing and OMG it took them to a new level. I love to mix sweet and savory a lot. Using this apricot on top was like spreading a budget friendly chutney on these beauties. The Apricot glazed Tilapia was served over a bed of  Romaine, drizzled with olive oil.  This is definitely going to be a regular occurrence for dinner. 

Right now, you can save $1.00 with this Gorton's coupon, when you purchase any two Gorton's items, so if you are tempted I'd take advantage of that! 

For those of you who need gluten free choices, this is definitely a good one that is healthy and fast to prepare.

And now for the Sweepstakes! 

 Gorton's is holding a Real Fabulous Sweepstakes where you have a chance to win a whole new wardrobe. They want to help make you feel good inside with healthy foods and give you a makeover to feel good on the outside too! 

Good Luck!
