Total Nutrition Drink Mix (Review)

I’ve recently been looking for ways to safely get more nutrition into my diet, and just overall feel better.   I have been looking around at several different drink mixes, and then I was given the opportunity to try Total Nutrition.

First of all, let me thank Total Nutrition for sending me a sample of their product for free.  This is what Total Nutrition says about their product:

Total Nurtirion is rich in antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, nutirents, vitamins, and phytonutrient – all of which are required to take your body from “surviving” to “vibrant”.  Simply stated, with Total Nutrition, you will transend “normal nutrition”.  Total Nutrition is a delicious, easy-prep supplement that contains a diverse blend of premium quality superfood ingredients that have been sourced from across the globe.  This cutting-edge global blend of superfoods makes Total Nutrition extremely dense in nutrients, vitamins and minerals.  In fact, just one tablespoon is enough to provide the average American with an entire day’s worth of nutrients!  Total Nutrition is the first step toward changing your life and your health.  You’ll feel revitalized in a way that you’ve only dreamed about!  Total Nutrition is comprised of:  Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Spirulina, Spinach, Alfalfa Leaf, Kelp, Dulse Leaf, Barley Grass Juice, Orange Peel, Beet Root, Dandelion Leaf, Lemon Peel, Gingko Leaf, Wheat Grass Juice, Maca Root, Cacao, Ashwagandha, Sacha Inchi, Manuka Honey, Bee Pollen, Reishi Mushroom, Blueberry, Black Currant, Wild Bilberry, Wild Lingonberry, Aronia, Pomegranate, Concord Grape, Red Raspberry, Sour Cherry, Wild Elderberry, Wild Cranberry, Black Raspberry, Goji Berries and Schiznadra Berries.   These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Adminstration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. (Taken from their Tomoson webpage at http://www.tomoson.com/view-promotion/total-nutrition)

Here is what the package looks like.

It comes in a resealable pouch, which I was a little confused about since there was only a single serving in the package. The powder is ground up very fine, and smells a lot like alfalfa.

The drink was very easy to mix up; I just put the powder in a cup and then poured 8oz of what in the cup with the powder.  It was nice and green, like it was supposed to be.

The drink itself, tasted not all that great.  Maybe other’s will have a better experience than I did since I am actually kind of picky when it comes to taste.  I didn’t feel like the drink would have harmed me in anyway, and if I could have covered up the taste, I probably would have drunk the rest of it. That just wasn’t happening, since I didn’t have anything to do that with.

I couldn’t validate any of their other claims to more energy and stuff, because basically I didn’t want to drink the rest of it, and the only sent me the one serving.

All in all, you may have better luck with it than I did, but I will probably just move onto another product.

If you would like to check out Total Nutrition or any of the other products Immortal Herbs has, you can visit their website at http://www.immortalherbs.com/

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Hosted by: Confessions of a Messy Mama
Cohosted by: Baby Costcutters
Sponsored by: Safety 1st
safety1st80giveaway
This is the Safety First Elite 80 car seat.  It features the Air Protect+, can be used for children from 5-100 lbs in three different car seat stages; rear facing, forward facing, and booster seat.  My favorite part is the fact that this seat can be used rear facing for children up to 40lbs. That is a nice long time. I believe that this car seat is well worth the cost.

My love of Coconut Oil (Giveaway)

As a cloth diapering mama, I was introduced to all the wonderful things coconut oil is.  Now, I love spreading the word of coconut oil.  If you don’t know what coconut oil is, you maybe thinking of something like veggie oil.  A thick liquid, that will get everywhere and is hard to clean up.  Coconut oil is not like that.  Coconut oil comes in a solid state, and will actually melt in your hand.  I actually like the way it tastes, and Goose will just eat it off the spoon and calls it sugar.

Coconut oil has so many benefits  I am not able to name them all here.  You might want to check out http://www.coconutoil.com  and http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/how-to-use-coconut-oil.htm for more information.

I was recently made aware of a company that wanted to spread the “Good News” of coconut oil, and so I jumped at the chance to help out.

http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/
Tropical Traditions was started by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy.  They moved to the Philippines in 1998, and began the company soon after when they found a more natural way to make coconut oil.  Thus, they began producing traditionally made and organic coconut oil.  

Here is a video about their journey.



I am so glad that they have decided to work with me and do a giveaway.  That that one lucky winner will be able to try their Organic Gold Label coconut oil.  




What to learn more about Tropical Traditions? Here are a few links that you can check out about their products and the Gold Label Coconut oil.

•       Gold Label Product Page: http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/virgin_coconut_oil.htm
•       What is Virgin Coconut Oil: http://www.tropicaltraditions.com/what_is_virgin_coconut_oil.htm

Comfy Joey Gift Certificates #Giveaway Ends 9/29

This giveaway is hosted by: Crunchy Livin Mama Style
This blog has not be compensated monetarily or in product for the promotion of this giveaway.

While I’m not new to the idea of babywearing, I didn’t start using a ring sling myself until my second son was born.  I was thrilled when Comfy Joey offered to send me a ring sling of my choice in exchange for my honest review! 
Comfy Joey offers many different ring slings from water slings to linen – in a variety of colors.  For my sling I chose their Sipadan Island, which is a gorgeous teal-green color, with two metal sling rings to secure the sling during your carry! I often get comments or questions on it and am delighted to share with them about the ring sling! Anyway to encourage a mama into babywearing is always fun!! Comfy Joey Ring Slings are great for newborns to 30/35lbs comfortably making it possible to keep your little one close while being hands free.

The sling I chose is 100% linen which has been great for these hot summer days.  Light, yet supportive – the ring sling is super breathable keeping baby and I ubber comfortable.  Right out of the bag I was really amazed at how gorgeous the color truly is.  Pictures don’t do it justice! However, the sling fabric  was a bit rough at first but a cold wash, air dry and steam iron softened it right up! For those that aren’t familiar with baby carriers, this is actually quite common for these kinds of carriers – I often had to do it in the beginning with my woven wrap as well.  The sling will also soften with use.

To check out the full review please visit:

This giveaway will begin September 12th and run through September 29th  11:59 pm EST. The winner will be chosen at random through Giveaway Tool.
