Clean Your Mouth the Green Way with Himalaya



Clean Your Mouth the Green Way with Himalaya
Written By Renee Arbia



Sponsored By Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste and Moms Meet
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (www.momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I like to consider myself and our family a very green family. We try our best to recycle, reduce and reuse as many things as possible. We try to eat a lot of organic and vegan friendly foods. We even make some of our own soaps, detergents and cleaners. However, some things are harder to switch to green living than others. Toothpaste for us is a hard one. My husband and I are very set in our dental hygiene ways. Our five year old son, Xavier uses toothpaste made by natural ingredients, but my husband and I could not find one that we liked the taste of and trusted for our oral hygiene. We are excited to introduce Himalaya Botanique which offers a full line of clinically studied herbal formulations, certified USDA organic single herbs and body care products.



Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste has a great taste and a long lasting flavor. I especially liked that it does not have a bitter after taste like many natural toothpastes. Himalaya uses an herbal formulation that helps to remove plaque, support healthy looking gums, and maintain white teeth. Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste comes in seven varieties; Whitening Complete Care Simply Peppermint, Whitening Complete Care Simply Mint, Compete Care Simply Peppermint, Simply Mint, Simply Cinnamon, Simply Spearmint, and the original Neem and Pomegranate toothpaste. 



All seven varieties are gluten free and free from harmful ingredients like Carrageenan, Fluoride and SLS. Himalaya uses ingredients such as the Neem leaf, pomegranate, Triphala, Xylitol and the Whitening toothpastes use Papain and Bromelain, the enzymes from papaya and pineapple, to remove surface stains.



A week after using the Whitening Complete Care Simply Mint my teeth were much brighter. I liked that it did not increase the sensitivity of my teeth like most whitening products. It was much milder and made my mouth feel refreshed. 



Our entire family loves all the different flavors. It is great to have a real clean mouth that is not cleaned with harmful ingredients. We love the toothpaste and that the Himalaya Botanique company gives back to the community by supporting community health, sustainable farming and environmental responsibility. You can visit www.himalayatoothpaste.com to join Himalaya’s sampling program, where you can receive additional samples and coupons. Himalaya Botanique Toothpaste comes in a nice big tube and is reasonably priced. We were very impressed with this toothpaste and hope that more people will try it out. Himalaya should be the next big name in your bathroom.

Get Dinner Done With Green Chef



Get Dinner Done With Green Chef

Written By Renee Arbia




Sponsored By Green Chef and Moms Meet
I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet Blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

Our winter calendar has been swamped with lots of things to do, and finding time for work, kids, cleaning and cooking has been very challenging. I was more than happy to get some help in the kitchen and jumped at the chance to try out Green Chef, the new meal kit delivery service.

Green Chef is a USDA-Certified Organic meal kit delivery service with pre-measured and largely prepped ingredients, including homemade sauces and marinades. The kits come with easy-to-master, chef-crafted recipes that use fresh, seasonal ingredients from suppliers in about thirty minutes. They have two person plans and family plans for four people. They also offer Carnivore, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Paleo and Vegan plans and each kit comes with two meals for the week to feed either two people or four people in the family plan.







Our Green Chef kit that I chose was the Omnivore Family Plan. Our kit came right on time and everything in it was fresh and cold. I was able to open it and put it in the refrigerator right away. The first dinner that we decided to make was the Chicken Cassoulet.

Chicken Cassoulet is a traditional French dish that is great for wintry nights. We pan seared chicken thighs and baked them with cremini mushrooms, carrots, garlic, cannellini beans, crushed tomatoes and a breadcrumb topping. For the side dish of this dinner a baby kale salad with radishes and a Honey-Dijon balsamic vinaigrette.



The directions are very specific and even have pictures to help you a long the way. The only things you may need are salt, pepper, cooking oil and any pans and bowls. Most of the ingredients are already measured and chopped. Some things needed some chopping but the measuring is all done. You follow directions and it works great!




I have never heard of Chicken Cassoulet, but we found it incredibly filling and hearty. My four year old son liked it and even loved the kale and radish salad with the salad dressing. I thought it was a good amount of food.



The second meal we received in our Green Chef box was Veggie Quesadillas. We make quesadillas a lot in our house. In fact we have a quesadilla maker so I was eager to try out a new recipe. The Veggie Quesadillas came with a lime-dressed slaw and rice in a cilantro-scallion sauce. The whole wheat quesadillas are filled with Monterey Jack cheese, plus red bell peppers, pinto beans and corn that has been seasoned in a paprika-cumin spice blend. These were very easy to make like most quesadillas. I loved the flavors that were added in them. This was also a lot of food for a family of four and everyone devoured it all very quickly!







Green Chef really was great to have all the ingredients and recipes on my doorstep right when I needed and expected them. They have really delicious recipes that you can easily make any time you want. Some of the other family dinners that they offer are Thyme-Roasted Chicken with cauliflower-white bean mash and roasted veggies, Tuna Tostadas with Spanish rice, jicama, mango salsa and pickled peppers, Ginger-Tamari Steak, spinach, cabbage, pad Thai noodles and peanut sauce and Greek Veggie Pitas with sweet potato fries, couscous, hummus, feta and olives.

Green Chef offers culinary delights delivered to your door and made easy to learn how to cook. It’s great to eat delicious culinary masterpieces suited to you and your family’s dietary guidelines. Green Chef is easy to use and even change plans or deliveries when you need to. Feel free to go on their website and check out their delicious menu!

Snack Healthy with Hail Merry Bites



Snack Healthy with Hail Merry Bites
Written By Renee Arbia

Sponsor: Green Moms Meet and Hail Merry Bites
I received this productfor free from Moms Meet(momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.




A favorite snack that we love to pack in lunches and on the go are cookies, however cookies are never sold in a very healthy way. Plus, they tend to crumble when left too long in bags and taste stale after a while.



New Hail Merry Bites are perfect for snacking. They are made with Certified C.L.E.A.N ingredients and healthy fats including energizing organic virgin coconut oil and sweet almond flour. They are made in a women-owned kitchen that produces award winning and great tasting recipes that are low-temperature dehydrated which protects the integrity of the raw dietary oils and pure ingredients so that they always taste fresh. Hail Merry is a snack food company that celebrates the benefits of plant-based dietary oils and fats that balance the total carbohydrate load, making them guilt-free snacks and desserts.



We loved the Hail Merry Bites. I like that you store them in the fridge but they do taste better actually sitting out for a while. It makes them perfect for packing and snacking. They are great for a pre-workout snack, a reward, school lunches, snacking on the go or entertaining. Both my husband and my son love them as much as I do. They did not taste like anything healthy. One serving is two bite size cookies and they are surprisingly filling for a snack. The only issue we found is if you do not like coconut you may not like these as all of them have coconut oil or coconut itself in them. Also, they do have nuts, so if you have a nut allergy they are not good for you. Hail Merry Bites are so delicious and good for you. They help give you energy and also help with your sweet tooth!



Hail Merry Bites come in six different flavors, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Caramel Sea Salt, Salted Brownie, Pure Vanilla Macaroon, Lemon Macaroon, and Dark Chocolate Macaroon. All flavors are certified C.L.E.A.N, Gluten-free, Certified Vegan, Kosher, Dairy-free, Grain-free, Peanut-free, Paleo-friendly, and Non-GMO verified and do not contain any highly-refined sugars or flours. You can find Hail Merry Bites in the refrigerated section of your grocery store or visit www.hailmerry.com/where-to-buy to find a store near you!



Enter for your chance to win two free coupons to try Hail Merry Bites! Contest closes 6/24/16 and is open to the USA only.

No More Nose Blunders with Naspira



No More Nose Blunders with Naspira
Written By Renee Arbia

Sponsor NeilMed Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator and Moms Meet
I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program (greenmomsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.



Baby and children items are always being upgraded. There are tons of different types of cribs, bouncers, strollers, car seats, even diapers are always changing and getting better than they were before. One of the few things you will notice does not change is your nasal bulb to clean out your baby’s nose. It is the same bulb given at hospitals for years. You can have a baby and get a nasal bulb then have another baby five years later and get the same nasal bulb. While the normal nasal bulb is useful it does not last very long. Sooner or later it gets nasty on the inside and is too hard to clean. It does not always fit into your toddler’s nose after a while and for really big nose and sinus issues you are left with not much to choose from to help your little one when they need it the most.



NeilMed is one of the largest manufacturer and supplier of saline nasal irrigation systems in the world. They have developed a growing line of products for baby care, ear care and first aid. NeilMed has made their company mission to provide safety, affordability, and effectiveness to sustain long-term growth and create drug-free and effective nasal/sinus care for millions of consumers worldwide. One of my personal favorite products of NeilMed’s is their Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator. The NeilMed Nasal-OralAspirator safely and effectively suctions your baby’s and toddler’s stuffy, runny or congested noses. Unlike some nasal-oral aspirators the NeilMed Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator uses a 2-in-1 design to use it as a Nasal Bulb aspirator that you can clean or as an effective Nasal-Oral suction device. The suction force is generated by the mouth of the parent and alleviates nasal congestion in babies and small children.



I really like that this is a 2-in-1 device. The fact I can quickly and easily use it as a bulb or nasal-oral aspirator really helps. It is so very easy to clean and pull apart for sterilization.



 Plus, it even comes with seven in-line filters to change as needed and it all stores nicely in the mesh bag that is provided. 



Xavier likes it and does not mind his nose being suctioned when needed and we plan on using the NeilMed Nasapira Nasal-Oral Aspirator for our new baby girl when she gets here.



 In fact lots of moms who have tried the new NeilMed Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator no matter the age of their children have loved it’s easy to use and easy to clean design that is lacking in so many other nasal bulbs.


 NeilMed has a whole line of baby, children and adult nasal products available, including Neti pots and irrigation systems. You can purchase the NeilMed Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator at any of these stores…



Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, Harmon, Kinney Drugs, Shop Rite, Brookshire’s, Amazon.com, drugstore.com, neilmed.com and myotcstore.com

Sponsored:Xlear All Natural Oral & Health Products for Your Family



Sponsored: Xlear All Natural Oral and Health Products for Your Family
By Renee Arbia

I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet Blogger, I agree to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of this product.



This month I am bringing you posts and sponsors to help you start your family on the path of healthy living. Springtime is not only a time for cleaning our homes, but the negativity and problems in our lives. It is a great time to get healthy, and in shape to be able to do all the fun activities you have planned for the summer.


 There are a lot of all natural products. However, one area that has been lagging in the all natural product line is oral and health care. Luckily, Xlear Incorporated is committed to providing consumers with the health benefits of Xylitol, a naturally occurring sweetener, by manufacturing all-natural health enhancing products. Xlear has designed an oral care line and health line of products that are all natural and safe for your whole family. As a Moms Meet Blogger over on greenmomsmeet.com, we have were fortunate to be able to test out the Xlear line of products. We really like the Xlear products and cannot get over how they are so similar to what you are used to using, except there are no chemicals.




All of Xlear’s products use a natural occurring sweetener called Xylitol. The addition of Xylitol to nasal sprays, neti pots, and positive pressure bottles has been shown to make them more effective at helping to prevent ear infections in children, sinus infections in adults and asthma and allergies in people of all ages. Xylitol helps the body’s natural cleansing process to clear away allergens, asthmatic triggers, and other harmful bacteria. Some even have found that using Xylitol in oral hygiene products may help reduce tooth decay.



The Xlear Nasal Spray was by far our favorite product. My husband, son and I have very bad allergies. June in the south is allergy season so we were all in need of a good nasal spray. I loved how it was very light, easy to use, and never once bothered my nostrils at all. My husband used it regularly and even said he had a lot less irritation. The Xlear Nasal Spray alleviates congestion due to allergies, cold, flu and sinusitis. The Xylitol in the nasal spray has been shown to decrease bacterial adherence in the nose. It is recommended to use twice a day to hydrate sinuses and nasal passages and help to wash away airborne contaminants and pollutants that lead to many common upper respiratory problems. Unlike most prescription nasal sprays Xlear Nasal Spray is non-addictive and will not damage tissues. A 15 oz. container retails for $14.99 and lasts 2-3 months with daily use. You can also get Xlear Nasal Spray Economy Pack which is three .75oz squeeze bottles for $18.99.


 The company Xlear Inc. also has an oral hygiene line of products called Spry. We were able to test out the toothpaste, oral rinse, toothbrush, gum and mints. We really enjoyed the Spry Toothpaste Non-Fluoride. I loved that it was natural and safe for Xavier to use as he is only three. It did not have the sweet flavor most toothpastes for children have. In fact my husband and I both used this toothpaste with no problem. It tastes very similar to your regular toothpaste. The Xylitol in the Spry Toothpaste Non-Fluoride increases mineral absorption into the enamel of the teeth, resulting in greater protection.



I think our ultimate favorite was the Spry Oral Rinse. The Spry Oral Rinse comes in Cool Mint, Spearmint, Wintergreen and Cinnamon flavors. We tried out the Spearmint and WOW! That was some cleaning power. It felt like every mouth wash that I have ever tasted but was nice that it did not burn my mouth off. Spry Oral Rinse uses a natural approach to oral health by using a xylitol-rich, low-alcohol and pH-neutral formula. It has all natural flavorings and herbal extracts such as; aloe vera, chamomile and Echinacea to help soothe irritated mouth tissues.




Spry also makes Spry Gum that comes in Spearmint, Wintergreen, Cinnamon and Peppermint is sugar-free and comes in a package of twelve. The Spry Gems are little mints that are naturally sweetened with 100% Xylitol. They come in Berry, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Spearmint and Lemon Cream flavors for a forty count. We tried out the Berry and Cinnamon Spry Gems and I loved them! They tasted great and one cinnamon flavored made my breath fresh. I also loved the small plastic container they come in. It is easy to fit anywhere.

If you would like to try out going all natural on your oral hygiene and health products with Xylitol you can get the Xlear Care Kit (valued at $65) for only $25 by using this code SAVE60 just visit xlear.com/xlear-care-kit-special to order
