I am excited to share one of my favorite snack brands with you! Made in Nature has some super tasty products that are made with mostly dried fruit, nuts and even vegetables. My favorites are the Figgy Pops that are filled with nut butter. When I tried the jelly and nut butter flavor a couple of years ago, I thought it was one of the best snacks that I had tried.

Dyper eco-friendly diapers review, Atlas Protein Bars review and a review of RightRice, a bean based rice! Dyper Diapers
I've changed a lot of diapers in the last 4 1/2 years between the two kiddos and with another on the way, I have a lot more diaper changing in my future. I recently heard about Dyper which is a brand that makes biodegradable bamboo diapers and I knew I needed to try them. I am totally not one of those cloth diapering moms but would like to be able to help the planet more. Typical diapers do not break down and I have always felt guilty about that so it is amazing that these ones do. Dyper diapers contain no chlorine, latex, alcohol, perfumes, PVX, lotions, TBT or Phthalates.
**Keep reading for a Dyper Giveaway of a 1 month supply of diapers, a box of Atlas Bars and for a RightRice giveaway!

As a consumer, I know that it can be hard to sort through nutrition information and to know what is correct and what is incorrect. Even as a dietitian, it can be difficult. For example, some people say that carbs are bad, some say that they are okay. Some people say that a high-fat diet is the way to go, some think that sticking to a moderate fat diet is best. Knowing what is correct can be very difficult and as someone interested in health, I always want to know the truth about what is right.
