Nutrexin Deodarant

Hello Friends. I've missed visiting with you a few times per week. We have super busy over the last 2 months. Unfortunately, blogging takes a back seat to my family, career as a teacher, and even my doggies. 

I really wanted to take some time today to talk about Nutrexin Deodorant. I am an me never of Green Mom's Meet, as a member and blogger. I was chosen to review Nutrexin Deodorant. I was so excited to review such a clean product. They sent me a lovely care package.  

Here are the products I was sent: 


I was asked to review the unique, aluminum-free, roll-on deodorant called Allum-Free Deodorant. Here is a little bit about the product from Green Mom's Meet:


"Protect you and your family against sweat and odor, the natural way. Nutrexin Alum-Free Roll-On Deodorant offers reliable 24-hour protection with a balanced alkaline effect and does not contain aluminum, fragrances, preservatives, or artificial colors. Made with a complex combination of healing plant extracts for additional antimicrobial benefits, soothing skin moisturizers, and quick absorption, Alum-Free deodorant allows the body to naturally stimulate itself to effectively de-acidify and cleanse acids and toxins from our cells. It is also safe for all skin types, dries quickly, and does not leave a white residue."

I love the natural and detoxifying properties of Nutrexium deodorant. The lack of yuck chemicals and ingredients I can't even pronounce are a definite bonus. There has been some great research coming out in recent years about limiting the chemicals entering our bodies through our cosmetics, Nutrexium is leading the charge.

The pros of Nutrexium deodorant were that it really did not leave a yucky, white residue and it prevented a lot of perspiration for 6 hours.  I loved knowing I was not filling my body with chemicals too.  It was also a benefit that the Nutrexium deodorant is gluten free! I prefer all of my personal care products to be gluten free with a kiddo with celiac disease. 

The con was that it didn't really last as long as I would have preferred. I work 8-10 hour days and need a bit more lasting power in a deodorant. I guess I could reapply, but I get so busy I'd totally forget. 

Try Nutrexium Allum-Free Deodorant soon, you won't regret making this choice. Use the code MOMS1015 to get 15% off your purchase. 

Thank for stopping in!

Korean Teriyaki Skewers

Hey All! Sorry if you've been missing my gluten free awesomeness. I've been very busy, big things are in the works for the Sensitive Family, along with the daily grind of raising a 4 year old with celiac disease and toddler with FPIES.  I can't wait to show you how I made 2 gluten free teriyaki dishes!

Here are a few updates:
- Captian is in preschool! It's going well. He is suck a good sport about having different food. We've had 2 bouts of possible glutenings. It's hard to tell what caused it. I know Gluten Free Cheerios were not a winner for Captain. I'll tell you more later...

- Baby Bee is so adorable! He is a joy. Here is a photo in his newest Wild & Southern shirt. 

- Bee has only passed turkey :(. We love him having a meat, but wish he could eat more. #FPIESsucks
- Captain is kicking but learning mad ninja skills. I love the karate school we found.
- Mr. Sensitive is working less hours as the summer winds down.
- Lastly, Sensitive Mommy is back to teaching for the school year. I love my job, but miss my kiddos. 

Enough of the updates, let's get cooking...

I love Asian inspired dishes, but many use Teriyaki and/or soy sauce, which usually contains gluten. I need gluten free teriyaki! At the GFAF Expo in Chicago we met Sunny's Korean. We'd "met" on Instagram, but after chatting with Sunny's gorgeous daughters and Sunny I was inspired to get cooking with their gluten free Teriyaki.  It was so easy to use, and way less salty than other Asian sauces I've tried before. All in all I give Sunny's Teriyaki ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars !! I was able to make 2 gluten free dishes and we still have more left. I know you will love Garlic Korean Steak Teriyaki Skewers &  Korean Steak Teriyaki Bowls.

Here is the 1st gluten free recipes to try: 


Garlic Korean Steak Teriyaki Skewers
Time: 2 hours (marinade), 15 minutes cooking  Servings: 4-6

Ingredients: 
1 pound beef stew meat, round steak, or skirt steak
1 cup Sunny's Teriyaki
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 black pepper
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Vegetables of your choice. I used 1 yellow pepper, 1 zucchini, and 1 small yellow onion.
Bamboo Skewers

Directions:
1. Tenderize the meat with meat tenderizer. I hammered mine for a few minutes in a closed bag. Cut in to 1-2 inch cubes or pieces. 
2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Marinate steak in marinade in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. 
4. Slide the beef on skewers.
5. Discard marinade.
6. Assemble veggie skewers, if desired.
7. Grill gluten free skewers on barbecue or grill pan. Until steak in cook through. 

Thank for visiting today! Tomorrow I will share gluten free Korean Steak Teriyaki Bowls.

Cedarlane Tamales

Hi All! Sorry for my two week blogging beak, it was busy times at the Sensitive House. School started and teacher/working mommy needed to get focused and organized. It was also the first time Captain attended preschool, which was fun and exciting, as well as challenging and trying. Baby Bee is still hanging at the in-home daycare, running the show and being adorable.  I
If you are ever missing me find me on Instagram & Twitter.

During this stressful two weeks I really needed a little assistance with healthy, fast, & family-friendly gluten free food I didn't have to spend all my time on. I used some of my recipes like:

But I still needed help. Cedarlane Tamales saved the day by offering me their yummy tamales to review. They were sweet enough to send me 4 kinds: Sweet Corn, Spinach and Feta Cheese, Chile and Cheese, and Roasted Vegetable. 


Here is my honest review: AWESOME!
Cedarlane Tamales are fresh, filling, and family friendly! It is amazing that Cedarlane Tamales use high quality ingredients and are gluten free. They are perfect for a quick and tasty lunch, dinner or Taco Tuesday! 

Product Review:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars
Great Quality: all of the tamales cooked perfectly when following the microwave instructions. They even had my co-workers jealous when I made a spinach and feta tamale for lunch. Cedarlane also strives to use natural, wholesome ingredients. 

Thanks Cedarlane for making dinner time and lunch at little easier.

Gluten Free Back to School Lunches

It's time for school! Well it is "back to school" time for Sensitive Mommy (I'm a teacher), it is also the first day of preschool for Captain. Time flies with this kiddo. I can't believe he is 4 and headed to full day preschool. 

I'm so excited for Captain to experience being in a classroom with lots of kids and educational experiences, but I worry, like most moms do. But my fears don't have anything to do with the kids or teachers, just food, gluten in particular. As you are most like aware Captain has celiac disease and dairy intolerance (his journey here). 

I don't want to drone on and on about the hidden dangers of gluten cross contaminating EVERYTHING. I am choosing to address that concern with the preschool privately. What I will say is that they are receptive and accommodating. 

Captain will be the only kiddo to bring his lunch and snacks, with appropriate paperwork and following all necessary rules. Pressure is on the make lunch time AMAZING for my #celiackid. When you are little you want to fit in and do what the other kids are doing... eat what the other kids are eating. Since he can't eat the food served at preschool I've teamed up with a few friends to make his school lunches extra special.  Goodbyn will help us rock some great back to school style and function with their amazing boxes. Snack Out Loud will power up the protein in his lunch. Fruigees with help me keep Captain's lunch super healthy. Products were given to our family for the purpose of a review, opinions are our own.



1. Black bean quesodilla on gluten free spinach tortilla, 24 Carrot Orange Fruigees, and Snack Out Loud Smoky Chipotle BBQ Crunchy Beans.

2. Strawberry jam toast with puffed Goldfish, and Fruity Jello. *Tip* Make 2-3 lunches at a time. Goodbyn helps with all the closable containers and lids. 

3. Roast beef roll-up on gluten free spinach tortilla with Kalefornia Grape Fruigees, and Snackout Load Power Puffs. These are tasty puffs! 

4. Burgers, grapes, and veggies. Use a small Goodbyn container to add your kid's favorite condiments. 


5. Breakfast Goodbyn! A gluten free waffle with a bin of syrup and strawberries. Add some Snack Out Loud Crunchy Beans for some added protein. 

6. Heat up some gluten free chicken nuggets, 24 Carrot Orange Fruigees, and Ranch Snack Out Loud Crunchy Beans.

7. More chicken nuggets with a Kalefornia Grape Fruigees, and Tangy BBQ Power Puffs.



8. Buttered gluten free noodles, yellow tomatoes and french dressing, and strawberries. 

9. Gluten free waffle, cashews and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips, and blueberries.

10. Apple Nachos (how to below), puffed Goldfish, and turkey jerky.



We are ready to rock this school year and stay safe!


Product Review - Goodbyn
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars
Great price, quality and ease of use! 
Love the easy to use and clean high quality material. Lear me about Goodbyn at their website.

Product Review- Snack Out Load
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5 stars
Great ingredients with an innovative snack ideas. I would love to see more flavors. Some flavors were a little strong for me, but Captain loved them all. 

Product Review- Fruigees
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars
We love these! If we had to pick nothing Beets Cherry (one I mentioned on IG) is our favorite. Yum! I love the non-GMO and organic ingredients. Perfect for a healthy lunch box addition.

Paleo Pizza Casserole

Pizza! I have an undying, unwavering, unflappable love for pizza. 

During my first round of Whole30 in June, I wasn't sure how I could go without pizza for 30 days. The intent of Whole30 is to break your irrational connections to food. Fortunately for youWhole30 could not break my pizza addiction, so I had to come up with a  Whole30 compliant way of enjoying pizza-y flavor and texture with out enjoying the gluten-filled, grain or pseudo grain pizza crust. Enter Paleo Pizza Casserole

Paleo Pizza Casserole has all the Italian flavors or pizza and the creaminess of the cheese, while being gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and soy free. How? Spaghetti squash and Teta Foods Garlic Spread (sub paleo mayo if you need to). 

To make Paleo Pizza Casserole Whole30 compliant you'll also need to use compliant ingredients. For pepperoni I used Applegate turkey pepperoni. And for spaghetti or pizza sauce you'll have to make sure there is no added sugar or food starches added. 

Will the kids eat Paleo Pizza Casserole? Yes! And they will ask you to make it agian.

Time: 30 minutes  Servings: 6

Ingredients;
1 medium-sized Spaghetti Squash
1/3 cup Teta Foods Gatlic Spread or 1/3 cup Mayo +1/2tsp garlic powder
1 cup Spaghetti Sauce
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning, I added crushed red pepper to my serving. 
Favorite Pizza Toppings: pepperoni, olives, red onion...

Directions:
1. Slice your squash in half and scrape out seeds.

2. Coat in butter or ghee. Place face down in microwave safe dish. Cover with lid. 

3. Microwave 10-12 minutes.

4. While squash is cooking prepare and/chop toppings.

5. Let squash rest for 7-10 minutes. Then  remove spaghetti squash, placing "noodles" in dish.

6. Combine remaining ingredients and topping, stirring with fork.

7. Microwave 5 minutes.

8. Serve.

 
Paleo Pizza Casserole keeps well covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. I <3 leftovers!

What topping will you put on your Paleo Pizza Casserole


Yummy Day!

34 Paleo & Whole30 Breakfasts

As a person who didn't particularly like breakfast, or even eat it most days, I knew my adventure into Whole30 would be challenging. I absolutely cannot eat the same breakfast for several mornings in a row. I like to make breakfast a bit different everyday.

When eating Paleo and Whole30 you need to be gluten free, grain free, dairy free, soy free, sugar/sweetener free, legume free... So cereal and waffles are not acceptable. We are gluten free normally because my son has celiac disease, but going 100% grain free is a unique challenge, that I love. I am a terrible baker, but love paleo baking, here is my paleo birthday cake. I can't wait to make paleo waffles for breakfasts, but these 34 breakfast ideas are mostly Whole30 acceptable, which means no Paleo-fied pancakes and treats. 

Here are 34 Paleo & Whole30 Breakfasts:

1. Paleo Egg Wrap with bacon and coffee. I transitioned my coffee from alot of sugar to no sugar before round 1 of whole30. I now drink coffee with a splash of unsweetened almond milk.

2. Fried egg, bacon, spinach and Sriracha. 

3. DIY Mug Omelet with sausage and Franks Red Hot (whole30 compliant). And a Dirty the Kitty photo bomb. 

4. Paleo Egg Wrap with ham and spinach, with a side of hashbrowns. 

5. Omelet with spinach and ground turkey, with blueberries. 

6. Scrambled eggs with leftover veggies- zucchini and peppers. Side of blueberries. I save all leftover dinner veggies, even a teaspoon and throw them in my eggs. Waste not, want not. 

7. Paleo Mini- Muffins (recipe soon), bacon and green smoothie. 

8. Egg over hard with Frank's Red Hot and leftover ground turkey and peppers. 

9. The original Paleo Egg Wrap. Yum!!!

10. DIY Mug Omelet with spinach and side of ham. I love adding fresh or frozen spinach. Follow the directions in the link. This is a great to-go breakfast, just leave t in the mug and eat at stop lights.

11. Paleo Egg White Wrap, use the egg whites in the carton for an easy breakfast. Follow the link for directions.

12. Egg  over-easy with peppers. Grab whatever veggies are on sale to save money. Eating healthy doesn't have to be expensive, it just takes effort and creativity.

13. Scrambled eggs with onion, spinach and peppers. A side of blueberries helps me through the sugar withdrawals on Whole30. 

14. Egg white omelet and veggies. Photo bomb by the dogs, they love eggs. 

15. Scrambled eggs and leftover fajita veggies with guacamole. Egg + Avo = YUM! 

16. DIY Mug Omelet with Frank's Red Hot and Paleo grain free pancake. Just google or search Pinterest.

17. Egg over-hard and fresh strawberries.

18. Egg, ham, and fresh-picked raspberries. I haven't found a Whole30 client ham yet, but I use this when I eat breakfast after Whole30. 

19. Egg, ham, and blueberries. I go for easy breakfast when I am at my in-laws. The eggs are so fresh, straight from the coop! 

20. Fried egg with spinach was all I could make with Baby Bee crying post FPIES food fail. 

21. Scrambled egg with zucchini and ham, side of apple slices. Apple really helped keep me full and satisfy a sweet tooth. 

22. Scrambled eggs and a peach. I scramble eggs with a little water and unsweetened almond milk. 

23. Scrambled eggs with fajita veggies is a favorite. This is my first baby Gracie photo bombing.

24. An omelet that turned into scrambled eggs. Ha! Any tricks for keeping Omelets in one piece? Comment below.

25. Egg over-hard bacon and strawberries. 

26. Egg over-hard with spinach, sausage, and onions. I love these flavors together. 

27. Messy scrambled egg bowl with tomatoes and spinach. The tomatoes made this fresh and light. 

28. Spinach omelet with trust Frank's Red Hot. 

29. Almond Butter Banana Bowl. This was a great alternative to eggs. I have fallen head over heels in love with almond butter. 

30. Egg over-hard with Sriracha. On day 5 of my first Whole30 this egg tasted like heaven!

31. Omelet and homemade turkey sausage from the Whole30 cookbook.

32. DIY Mug Omelet and hash browns. Follow the directions in the link. So easy!

33. Bacon, scrambled eggs, spinach and orange peppers. 

34. Egg over-hard on hash browns with avocado. Avocado adds healthy fats to your diet. I am learn healthy fat is a very good thing. 


Which breakfast will you try? Any creative ideas for me? 

Enjoy your moring!
