FiberChoice 30-Day Get Picky Challenge

A few weeks ago, I received a sample of the FiberChoice Fruit Bites supplement so I could join the FiberChoice 30-Day Get Picky Challenge.

If you want to read about why I decided to use fiber supplements and how I got started with the challenge - you can find that information here: Getting Started with the FiberChoice Challenge.

In this discussion, I'm going to tell you how it's been going and what I've thought of the product.

First off, they are so easy to use!! The product I sampled was a fruity chewy - I don't want to call it a tablet - fruit shaped gummy. They taste great. So great, that I actually flipped the bottle over to see how much sugar was in them. Not too much (phew!)

So, how much easier does it get than chewing a gummy that's almost like candy to correct your fiber woes?

Plus, they are made from all natural prebiotic inulin (found in fruits and vegetables) so I feel good about taking them.

What about bathroom relief? Yes, it had to be said. There is a reason for taking fiber products after all. In my opinion, they were helpful. I am still taking iron supplements for my anemia (read above to see why I started the challenge if you want more info) so I still need extra help above and beyond what fruits and veggies can do.

I haven't had any problems and I seamlessly transitioned from my other fiber products to FiberChoice Fruit Bites. In all honesty, the Fruit Bites are so much more convenient and....pleasant.

But there were a few things I didn't really like, and ironically they have to do with the gumminess of the Fruit Bites. My first beef was that the inside of the jar looks horrible. I don't know if gummies melt or they just smear their gumminess on the bottle or what. I've noticed it with all gummy supplements and it really bothers me.

I'm sure it's "no big deal" but if manufacturers knew what it was and could let us know or had a way to fix it, it would make things more appealing. Just saying.

The other complaint had to do with the taste. As I mentioned, they taste great. My kids have not asked for them because they know they are "medicine" but if they ever tasted one, they'd want to eat them again and again and again. They taste a lot like candy. That's a good thing if you want to take them regularly, but I'm just saying to be aware of it and make sure kids know they are not candy.

If you have a thing against gummies, FiberChoice also comes in chewable (non gummy forms and sugar-free forms). They also have products that contain antioxidants, vitamins, calcium, and some that are formulated for weight loss help. There is a lot of options.

You can find them pretty much wherever medications are sold and also online (I saw them on Amazon just today.)

I'm going to keep taking them and I'll report back in a couple weeks to tell you how you can get started in the FiberChoice 30-Day Get Picky Challenge and how you can save money if you want to buy some.

Are Siberian Cats Hypoallergenic? The Truth about Siberian Cats!

Our Siberian kitten at 12 weeks old I thought we would never own a cat. My husband is allergic. And my son is allergic. So we put pet ownership out of our heads until some how we came across the Siberian cat breed. My husband spent all sorts of time researching Fel-D1 levels and everything he could about cats and allergies. He was convinced we could do it. So we began our search. First of all, you should know that there aren't very many Siberian cat breeders. At least on in our area. We called and emailed a few but they all had super long waiting lists and were hours away from our home. Then we found two that were close to home. They also had long waiting lists, but were close enough that we could go visit. We visited two separate breeders. We found them both to be very loving homes filled with cats. Soft, lovey, playful cats. But my both my husband and son had severe reactions after visiting the homes. Click here to see results of our first breeder visit . Even sti

Figuring out What's Wrong with Your Berry Plants by Leaf Analysis

I've been growing berries all my life. First raspberries and over the last 9 years blueberries and strawberries. Over that time, I have encountered an endless stream of problems and have figured out how to fix many of them. So I thought I'd put that knowledge online so people can easily figure out what might be going on with their berry plants and have a place to start to search for information. Most plants give signs of trouble with their leaves. In general, most plants (and especially berries) should have deep green leaves. Any other variation means trouble. Sometimes it's major. Sometimes it's an easy fix. Raspberries If your leaves have a purple tinge: It may mean the weather has been cold, they are just forming, or they are deficient in Potassium . To fix - apply light fertilizer (tomato fertilizer is a good choice, since it is higher in potassium which results in more flowers and more fruit - or buy Organic potassium source .) If your leaves are yellowing

9 Months Wearing Thinx - What I REALLY think and What you should know if you decide to use them!!

It's been 9 months since I bought my first pair of Thinx underwear. Since that time, I have transitioned to 90% reusable period products . I've figured out how to wash them, get them to stop being stinky , and when to use them.  I first heard of Thinx when a friend of mine showed me an article on Facebook.The article was an obvious paid to endorsement. I was disappointed that my friend couldn't see through the propaganda, but it did motivate me to dig deeper into reusable menstrual products. So I bought my first pair - I used a $10 off coupon and first time customers got free shipping. ( This link will give you $10 off if you decide to give them a go.) The first thing I did when they arrived was try them on. They fit well and looked really good. Fancy even? Well, maybe not for most people but they had lace and that is fancy in my world. I then tested them with a syringe of water to be sure that they could actually hold the liquid they claimed. They passed. I bo

How to Make Raw Almond Butter using a Blender (Vitamix)

You CAN make your own almond butter (peanut, cashew, sunflower, or ANY nut butter.) It's fast and easy - and you can do it in a blender! If you love almond butter, then I'd highly recommend learning how to make it yourself. I buy raw almonds   for about $3 a pound, so the savings aren't  huge , but knowing what goes into my almond butter is priceless.  What goes in? Nothing but almonds . You can certainly add salt, cocoa powder, sugar, honey, or whatever floats your boat - but the truth is - you don't have to!  You can roast the almonds and have a rich nutty flavored almond butter or you can make it raw (which to me - tastes more like cookie dough mixed with peanut butter, yums.) Here's the deal: you don't need to add oils or anything else. A vitamix blender (or other similarly powerful blender) can handle it.   Here's a video of me making raw almond butter. I used about 3 cups (measured by a 5 year old - so about  3 cups is fine). 

Can you fix broken plants with tape? - yes you can!

Can you fix broken plants with tape? YESSSSSS! Read on to hear how I have done it many times and how you can fix your plants too. A snapped Blueberry plant repaired with electrical tape and twine I take care of a lot of plants. And when I run out of plants, I take care of my neighbors' . Every once-in-a-while, I learn something that's worth sharing. This is one of those things. I found out that you CAN save plants by using tape. This winter, someone stepped on the main stem of one of my blueberry bushes and snapped it in half. I noticed it as soon as the snow melted and was devastated. It takes 3 years for a blueberry bush to "be ready" and it was year three. And the main stem was snapped clean off. So I did what anybody would do in an emergency like this. I hit the garage for whatever tape I could find. My husband had recently taught me that electrical tape sticks to nothing - but itself. And it sticks to itself well. I grabbed the electrical tape  from t
