Healthy Living Solutions!

You know I am always looking for ways to enhance my healthy lifestyles (and keep me on track!) so I am excited to share the following healthy living solutions:
Pasta Boat:
I do all my cooking for the week on Sundays so I am always looking for ways to cut down my kitchen time and to utilize all my appliances simultaneously. Which is why I love using the Pasta Boat-stick in the microwave with my (whole grain) pasta or vegis and forget about it. No watching the pot, no adjusting the temperature. And I can utilize my burners for other things -which is a huge plus for all of us kitchen multi-taskers out there! And the Pasta Boat allows you to cook, drain, serve, and store your pasta in ONE dish- ya that saves me time and energy on dishwashing (well that saves DH since he's our dishwasher). HUGE plus!!!!

The Pasta Boat allows you to drain and serve perfect pasta dishes in one microwaveable pot without the hassle of all those dishes. Just use one to make perfect pasta. It's easy to use and will make cooking pasta quick, easy and delicious!

The Pasta Boat’s steamer plate redistributes heat in the bowl to make perfect pasta every time. No more sticky or undone noodles. Its handles not only stay cool to ensure you don’t burn yourself, but act as a measuring device so you know just how many noodles to put in (great way to reduce waste!), and it also has a built-in-strainer on its lid to easily pour out the extra water when cooking is done. Any leftovers can go straight into the refrigerator, saving you multiple pans, strainers and extra containers to have to clean. I give the Pasta Boat two biceps up for ease of use, convenience, and time, energy, and space savings! The convenience of the Pasta Boat makes eating healthy just that much easier!

Chef Basket:
Many of us, at one time or another, probably had a colander, frying basket, strainer, steamer receptacle and wire basket in our kitchen. Finding the space to store so kitchen accessories can make for a big problem. But what if you could have all those products all rolled into one? Well, you can! Check out the Chef Basket, a revolutionary invention that can do all that (and more) in just one kitchen accessory. The Chef Basket is the new way to make kitchen work quick and easy. It starts off flat and instantly expands to a flexible basket. Even when hot water or oil is rapidly boiling in the pot, the specially designed handles stay cool to the touch. And when you’re done, collapse it and it stores flat in any drawer. That’s a plus for those of us with limited storage space.  The Chef Basket has many uses; it’s great for cooking, boiling, deep frying, steaming, poaching, blanching, and par-boiling.  You can use it as a colander for rinsing, washing, draining, straining, and storing.  I love using the Chef Basket to rinse out my veggies, cook my whole wheat pasta, steam my veggies and hard-boil my eggs. It is a great all-in-one tool that I have found plenty of use for with much more to come.

Are you tired of rolling your salad bags to try to keep the contents fresh? Do you find regular bag clips too bulky and cumbersome? Are you looking for a better solution? Introducing the GRIPSTIC, a new, slimmer and sleeker way to keep food fresh! The GRIPSTIC locks out air and moisture so food will stay fresh longer and ultimately reduce waste. The one-piece GRIPSTIC slides onto almost any bag and provides an air-tight seal. And because it locks the entire bag opening, you can keep your packaged foods fresh longer. It is great for snacks, coffee, cereal, frozen food, and salad. It is even great for bags used in the garden or garage. These things are WONDERFUL! Plus, the GRIPSTIC  saves space in the kitchen, cabinet, refrigerator or desk — unlike those bulky chip clips. The Gripstic is a slimmer and sleeker way to keep food fresh. Ever since receiving the GRIPSTICs, I have been using them for everything! They are easy to use, keep the contents of the bag fresh, take up little space and store away nicely. Gone are the days of big bulky chip clips and binder clips (yes, I have used binder clips in some situations) to provide a sub-par seal on bagged items. I am a GRIPSTIC convert!

SONA Stop Snoring Pillow:
OK who snores? Admit it! I do (just a little bit-dont tell) and DH does more than a little bit so we were ecstatic with the opportunity to review the SONA Stop Snoring Pillow. We all know how important a good nights sleep is to our health- so if our SO is keeping you up all night with snoring- you are putting your health at risk. First- it DID help reduce DH's snoring. I just may be saying goodbye to my earplugs! Second- DH said the pillow was super comfortable! Very important for him to get a good nights rest too!

The Sona Pillow is the only PatentedClinically Tested and approved pillow for the treatment of mild Sleep Apnea and to help reduce or Stop Snoring. Years of clinical research and design development by a Leading Neurologist and Sleep Expert went into both the design and application of this unique product.

The SONA pillow places the sleeper in a natural and comfortable side sleeping position that promotes proper alignment to increase the airway that assists the sleeper to breath more freely during the sleep cycle. The pillow allows the sleeper to comfortably sleep on their left or right side and helps them maintain this position throughout the night by two key patented design features:
  • The first design feature allows the sleeper to position his or her arm directly under the pillow which aids in maintaining the sleeper on their side throughout the night.
  • The second key design feature is a specially engineered center section of the pillow which creates a comfortable added support point in the shoulder blade area of the back which enhances the overall comfort - a design performance of the product. While this product will not cure Sleep Apnea orSnoring, it will help individuals who suffer from mild Sleep Apnea or frequently snore get a better, more restorative night's rest.
The Belles give the SONA Stop Snoring Pillow 2 biceps up for a quiet nights rest and a comfy sleep!
