{Organic Gemini}

Hello cupcakes! Happy weekend!

I've previously posted about this awesome company {Organic Gemini}, so here are some links to my previous posts:

Now let me tell you about some new products I got to try....

Tigernut Raw Granola

Here are the ingredients for the Apple Cinnamon Raw Granola which is dehydrated instead of baked to preserve the nutrients: 

Ingredients: TigerNuts*, Gala Apples*, Maple Syrup*, Sunflower Seeds*, Pumpkin Seeds*, Raisins*, Milled Flaxseeds*, Hemp Seeds*, True Cinnamon*, Cloves*, Cardamom*, Nutmeg*, Vanilla Extract*, Medjool Dates*, Sea Salt    *Organic

This was my favorite flavor of the raw granola. I take this in my bag to work for a snack throughout the day. You could also use it to top smoothies, oats, or yogurt. 

Tigernut Chocolate Clusters

Here are the ingredients for the chocolate clusters:

Ingredients: Sliced TigerNuts*, Maple Syrup*, Cacao Powder*, Sacha Inchi*, Sea Salt   *Organic

These little clusters can cure a sweet tooth! I loved these! It's hard for me to find chocolate that I can have since I am lactose intolerant, so I literally do a party dance every time I have chocolate I can eat. Check out that short ingredient list! All the heart eyes!

Tigernut Raw Snacks Peeled

These little tigernuts are perfect to add some crunch to salads or other dishes. I love stashing these in my hiking or camping bag too! They are the perfect travel food. I will be traveling back to my home state for Christmas and I will be taking these on the plane with me. 

Here are the ingredients: 

Ingredients: Organic TigerNuts   

*Please refer to my previous post for the benefits of tigernuts*

Tigernut Raw Snacks Sliced

I used these little slices to top muffins and the muffins turned out so cute! These are also awesome to use on top of smoothies, salads, oats, or yogurt. The ingredients for these slices are the same as the peeled tigernuts, just organic tigernuts. 

Tigernut Smoothie Mix

I was super excited to try the smoothie mixes because as many of you know... I am obsessed with smoothies! The super boost smoothie mix is nice to add to a smoothie because it doesn't have a powerful flavor. It adds a subtle nutty flavor to smoothies. The chocolate is also nice to use if you want to make a healthy, chocolate smoothie. I used frozen bananas, spinach, almond milk, vital proteins collagen peptides, and this chocolate smoothie mix... It was so tasty!

The nutrition is on point too!

Here are the ingredients for the super boost:

 Ingredients: Organic TigerNuts, Organic Sacha Inchi Protein Powder

& the chocolate:

Ingredients: Organic TigerNuts, Organic Sacha Inchi Protein Powder, Organic Cacao Powder

Tigernut Flour

The recipes that I posted above all use this Tigernut flour! I am in love with this stuff too. I love creating recipes using this flour because it adds more nutrients than regular flour. I recently made my healthy banana muffins (recipe link above) for my boyfriend's parents when they came to visit.

These products can also be found on Amazon: {Amazon Organic Gemini}

I've been dying to try their Horchata, so hopefully I can share that with you all soon!

{NutriChem Labs}

Hello Cupcakes!

I had the pleasure of trying out some natural supplements from {NutriChem Labs}.

I wanted to completely use all the supplements before I reviewed them for you. After a month of taking them, I want to share them with you. 

I tried out two supplements:

1) Natures Burn

This is a natural fat burner. It's plant based. Most fat burners on the supplement market are loaded with unnecessary ingredients. This product will help preserve muscle while burning fat. You will notice an increase in energy and metabolism. So what's in the product then? Well, let me tell you... Garcinia Cambogia, Caralluma Fimbriata, & Green Tea Extract. The combination of those three natural plants lead to decreased appetite and increased metabolism. 

Personally, I haven't noticed a huge difference in weight or body composition, but remember that I have only been taking the supplement for a few weeks. Diet & exercise also play a huge roll. I do feel less bloated which is a plus. 

To read more about Natures Burn, follow this link: {Natures Burn}

2) Joint Relief

Now this one I noticed a difference while taking. I personally struggle with joint pain after working out. I have os-good schlatter disease in my knees that can cause me pain if I work my legs too much. Since taking this supplement, I have not experienced knee pain. I also had foot surgery almost a year ago and that foot can sometimes ache post workout. BUT.. guess what!? No pain since taking this. 

Some of the ingredients are: tumeric, aloe vera, tart cherry, & ginger root.

My boyfriend tried out a supplement for me...

Natures Boost

It is suppose to naturally increase testosterone levels, increase muscular strength & performance, & enhance libido. 

Here is his recap of the supplement...

"It gave me more of a post-workout pump & helped me trim down a little bit"

He also stated he did not use it 100% as the label recommended, but he did feel as though the supplement helped overall with his workout & personal goals.

Some of the ingredients in this supplement are: black pepper, grape seed extract, horney goat week, maca root, & panax ginseng

This is off their website:

"NutriChem Labs is a high quality dietary supplement/health product company focused on helping people live fulfilling and healthier lives. All of our custom, cutting-edge blends are made with the highest quality ingredients and manufactured in only cGmp certified and FDA registered facilities.

We don't believe in miracle pills that promise overnight success. Achieving a healthier you involves a balanced diet, routine exercise, and a strong determination to stay on track. Our products are designed to help maximize results and supplement your daily health regimen.

Many supplement companies overdose their supplements with unneeded amounts of certain nutrients. This can be problematic because your body can only absorb a certain amount.
