P1240070I’ve been trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the last few months.  I’ve been watching what I eat and have lost over 20 pounds so far.  Part of my “secret” is not allowing myself to feel deprived or missing my favorite foods.  If I am craving something I try to find a similar but healthier version of what I am craving.  Sure, I sometimes have to get creative but that’s part of the fun.  I was so excited to find Yoplait Greek 100 Whips!  Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! are whipped Greek yogurts that come in 4 delicious flavors- Blueberry, Strawberry, Black Cherry, and Vanilla Cupcake.  They are a great snack, easy to throw in my girls’ lunchboxes, and also make a great dessert.

greek yogurt key lime pieYou can eat Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! by themselves or you can get creative with them like I like to do and come up with all sorts of yummy recipes.  I was craving Key Lime Pie the other day so I came up with my own, healthier version using Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! and only a few other ingredients.  I had my sister over so I had her try it.  She normally doesn’t like Greek yogurt and she’s pretty picky about food but she LOVED it and said it really tasted like Key Lime Pie.

couwalla app
Last weekend I attended a media event with several other bloggers at the Brio Tuscan Grill in Plantation and the Westfield Broward Mall to learn about the new Couwalla coupon app.  We started our afternoon enjoying on the amazingly delicious appetizers at  Brio Tuscan Grill, a new restaurant in Plantation.  There were 3 types of bruchetta, calamari, and spinach dip.  The Beef Carpaccio was my favorite but I really liked everything I tried.  I ordered a steak for my lunch and it was cooked perfectly and the sauteed veggies and diced sweet potato were a nice accompaniment.
brio tuscan grilleAnd the desserts!  Oh the desserts!  Full disclosure, I’m dieting so I ordered a cup of fruit but my oh my the desserts looked delicious!brio tuscan grille dessertsWhile we ate we had the opportunity to talk with the creators of the Couwalla app as well as coupon guru and Miami Dolphins player, Keith Sims.  Keith gave us some couponing tips and shared with us how he saves money with coupons.  With his money savings skills, Keith is the perfect spokesperson for Couwalla.
couwalla signSo what is Couwalla?

Couwalla App is a free application available for iphones and androids.

Right now Couwalla is only available in South Florida but they are quickly expanding to other markets and will have over 45,000 coupons to save on apparel and restaurants by next month.Screenshot_2015-01-25-00-48-36

Download the Couwalla app to your smartphone.  Open up the Couwalla app on your smartphone and it will show you all the coupons available in your area.

Screenshot_2015-01-25-00-49-16You can also search for coupons by category.  
Screenshot_2015-01-25-00-50-14Add the coupons you like to “My Coupons” and then simply have the cashier scan them when you get to the register.  Nothing to clip.  No searching for coupons online.  Easy peasy!  In just the last week since I stared using Couwalla I found several coupons that I hadn’t seen elsewhere.  Love that!  

Couwalla prides itself on it’s integrity- find a coupon, show it, use it, done!  No need to worry about coupons not working, expired coupons, etc. like with some other coupon apps.  

Screenshot_2015-01-25-00-53-53

With Couwalla the consumer is in control, not the advertiser.  Another great feature of Couwalla is the “Wallet” where you can store all of your store loyalty card numbers.  No more carrying around a keychain full of scan cards.  With Couwalla you can store them all in the app and simple show the app to the cashier to scan your loyalty card.
couwalla walletAnother one of my favorite things about Couwalla is “Couwalla Cares”, a philanthropic program in which Couwalla will donate money to charities per download of Couwalla. Couwalla chooses a different charity each month to give money to.  This month they are donating to the Alzheimer’s Family Center Inc. located in South Florida.  In February Couwalla’s Couwalla Cares charity will be St. Jude.

I think just about everyone loves to travel the world. So many places to visit and experience. One of my favorite parts about traveling is getting to try new foods that I might not have at home. The smells and all of the magical tastes. There aren’t two regions where the foods are exactly alike. If you are unable to travel you can still experience the culture, the nostalgia, and all of the sweet sensations of trying something new. With Try The World subscription box you can now try foods that someone in another city, state, or country eats every day! How cool is that?!

P1230235The name “Try The World” is pretty self-explanatory, right? It’s a subscription service which gives you a box of gourmet food from around the world every 2 months. If you subscribe, you will receive one box from a different city every two months. The first one is Paris, the second one is Tokyo, and the third one is Rio etc. You get it! Different month, different theme. How fun is that?

All of the products are USDA approved, but are difficult to find in the United States.. They are hand picked by Try The World’s team of travelers as well as by local experts, with a promise that they pass our highly selective criteria, eyes, ears and tastes!
This month was the Paris box, so all were Paris and France inspired. Score! I loved when I went to Paris many years ago so this box brought me right back to my travels.

Along with the unique and rare treats, I also receive a Culture Guide. This is what was in my Culture Guide for France:

  • Parisian Playlist

Fagor 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

Disclosure- I received the item mentioned below to facilitate my post.  All opinions are 100% my own.
electric_multi_cooker_horizontal_product
Fagor’s 6-quart 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker is a pressure cooker, slow cooker and rice cooker in one!  It features a brown and a warm function for true one-pot-cooking with a removable cooking pot that is dishwasher safe and nonstick coated for easy cleanup.  This handy kitchen appliance has so many great features and functions that would be a great addition to any kitchen and make a great holiday gift.  I love that it can be used as a slow cooker, a pressure cooker, and a rice cooker.   I have all 3 appliances but with the 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker I can put them all away and just leave the 3-in-1 on my counter.  It does it all.  Since it can even brown meat, no more browning in one pan and then transferring it to something else to cook it.  LOVE THAT!

So what would you cook if you had Fagor’s 3-in-1 Electric Multi-Cooker?  I’ll be posting some recipes for it soon so keep an eye out!


PRESSURE COOKING FUNCTION

The pressure cooking program drastically reduces cooking time. Food will maintain its natural color and flavor, while cooking your meals in up to 70% less time. Choose between high and low pressure to prepare a great variety of healthy meals in minutes; from appetizers to entrées and even desserts

SLOW COOKER FUNCTION

Use the slow cooker setting to prepare slow cooker classics such as pot roasts, soups and stews with flexible programming up to 9.5 hours. Add ingredients in the morning and dinner will be waiting for you. Add a salad or warm bread for mouth-watering meals every night.

RICE COOKING FUNCTION

No more soggy or burned rice dishes. The automatic rice-cooking program steams your favorite rice recipes to perfection with just a touch of a button. From sushi rice to risotto, all your recipes will be cooked to perfection in just 6 minutes.

BROWN & WARM FUNCTION

Features a brown and a warm function for a truly one-pot-cooking. The “Brown” function allows you to soften onions or brown meat without having to use a different pan to prep ingredients, and the “Warm” function will reheat or keep your cooked dishes warm!

COOL TO THE TOUCH HANDLES

The cool to the touch handles provide safety allowing you to safely touch the handles while cooking.

EASY TO CLEAN REMOVABLE COOKING POT

Non-stick, dishwasher safe removable pot will make cleanup a breeze.

PRESSURE REGULATOR VALVE

The pressure regulator valve controls the amount of pressure inside the cooker by allowing excess pressure to be released.

CONDENSATION RESERVOIR

Collects excess condensation during cooking. If there is some liquid in the reservoir after cooking, simply empty it.

USER FRIENDLY AND SAFE SELF-LOCKING LID

The lid will lock automatically when you slide it in place. The lid will not open while there’s pressure inside the cooker.

RECIPE BOOKLET WITH DELICIOUS RECIPES

The included recipe book will give you lots of ideas on how to prepare delicious and nutritious recipes.

DELAY TIME FUNCTION

Allows you to delay the cooking process up to 8 hours.

Rodeo Core Compact Core Exerciser

Using no electricity, this is the compact trainer that simulates cantering on a horse to strengthen and tone the core muscles. Exercisers sit on the padded saddle, rest their feet on a rubberized bar, and shift their weight backward to put the device's drivewheel in motion. As the saddle rotates at a moderate 40 rpm or less, it requires the rider to engage lumbar muscles, abs, glutes, and thighs, building core strength to help prevent back injuries and improve balance and posture. A 10-minute session can burn as many calories as 200 situps or a one-hour walk. Because it doesn't require a power cord, the device can be used anywhere, and it weighs half as much as many core trainers, allowing it to be moved easily between rooms or stowed away between workouts. The seat and footrest can be raised or lowered. Supports up to 250 lbs.

I’m usually not one for buying frozen food. Though it’s quicker than making food from scratch, it’s usually filled with all kinds of fillers that are terrible for you. When I was given the opportunity to check out Michael Angelo’s Italian Frozen Foods I wasn’t terribly excited. Of course I wanted to check it out, but not being a frozen food lover I just had preconceived thoughts about what it would be like.

photo 1

So I headed to my local Walmart to look for the Michael Angelo dishes in the frozen food section. Took me a minute to find them, but once I did I was pleasantly surprised to see the huge selection they offered. And the prices were comparative to other brands. I grabbed the lasagna to try first since it’s a family favorite. The first thing I always look for when trying a new food is the ingredients.

photo 2

I’m pretty sure that picture says it all. Look! REAL food!! The very first ingredient is TOMATOES… Not some weird thing most people can’t even pronounce. No bueno. I’m thankful that even my kids can read the ingredients. So now my next thought was how does it taste? Without chemicals and preservatives it can’t taste very good frozen, right? Wrong!

photo 3Hands down one of the best lasagnas I have ever had. I would have never guessed frozen could be this good. It’s just like homemade!! I love everything about Michael Angelo’s food and who they are!!

lasagna

 

The Meat Lasagna, now available in 46 or 80 ounces, is a Michael Angelo’s best-seller made with Pecorino Romano cheese, imported from Italy. Fresh beef, vine-ripened tomatoes and a secret blend of herbs are sautéed in imported olive oil and layered with al dente, 100 percent semolina lasagna noodles and premium cheeses to make the best pre-made lasagna dish available. The family-treasured Eggplant Parmesan, in 44 or 80 ounces, is made simply with fresh, lightly-breaded eggplant and just the right amount of tomato sauce, topped with Mozzarella and sprinkled with a blend of imported Parmigiano Reggiano and Pecorino Romano cheeses. Michael Angelo’s Baked Ziti with Meatballs is made carefully with 100 percent semolina ziti pasta and Sara’s beef meatballs, made with only ingredients found in any every day kitchen. Combined with vine-ripened tomato sauce, Mozzarella cheese and sprinkled with Romano cheese, this Italian classic is a crowd-pleasing combination.

Here is their story:

We are a family-owned company with a 30-year heritage of creating the highest quality Italian entrées in the freezer aisle. Our founders are Michael Angelo and his mother, Sara, and every box carries our family name. Like any good son, Michael believes that sharing Sara’s home-style Italian cooking is the best way to deliver quality and convenience to anyone who truly cares about what they eat. In our family, authentic, Italian taste is everything!

BOKS
Research shows the benefits of a healthy diet and exercise, and its effect on learning. In honor of National Eat Your Vegetables Day, June 17th,  BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) is sharing tips with parents to educate their kids about the importance of eating vegetables, as well as ways to make eating vegetables more exciting.

Below is a BOKS Bits Snack Quiz.  BOKS, Build Our Kids’ Success, an initiative of Reebok and the Reebok Foundation, is a free before-school physical activity program.  BOKS was founded on the principle Active Kids = Active Minds, and was created by a group of moms after reading Dr. John Ratey’s book Spark, which states that “exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.” The goal of the BOKS program is to enhance academic performance and the overall health of kids through physical activity. The program, run by moms, dads, P.E. teachers and all other types of volunteers in local communities, is simple to implement. BOKS is currently in close to 1,000 schools around the world.

Objective

To discuss how to test if a snack is a super healthy one.

Discussion Questions

1. I am going to tell you a way to help you choose a super healthy snack.

2. Take your snack out of the package or the wrapper if it has one.

3. Go over to the kitchen sink and turn on the water, run your snack under the water!!!!!

4. Can you still eat it??

5. If yes, it is probably a super choice; if no, maybe you can make a different choice.

6. What are some things that would be ok to eat after you run under water? Fruits and vegetables, such as apples, grapes, strawberries, carrots and peppers, hard boiled eggs, cheese sticks, nuts (if no allergies) ….

7. What would not be ok to eat? Cookies, potato chips, donuts, Twinkies ….

8. Another test could be if the food you are eating gets stuck in your teeth, then it is not a good choice either. (This can be in response to lollipops or candy being ok to eat after running them under water.)

Homework Assignment

Think about this when you get home from school today and see if you can make a really super choice!

 Disclaimer- This post was sponsored by Good Cook as part of the Kitchen Expert Blogger program.  I received the items mentioned below to facilitate my post but all opinions are 100% my own.

beef

Good Cook challenged bloggers to create a comfort food, easy dinner dish and gave us each 5 tools to choose from to incorporate using at least 2 in our dish.
good cook toolsHere’s what we received:  SMART Ice cream scoopFlip Measuring spoonSafe-cut Can OpenerEgg Separator, and Pot Clip Holder.  I love all these tools but for this recipe I used the Flip Measuring Spoon, Safe-cut Can Opener, and Pot Clip Holder.

This is a simple recipe that definitely has that comfort food feeling.   There aren’t a lot of spices and seasonings in it as I was making it for my family and my children like food to be pretty simple.  If I was just making it for my husband and myself I would add some other spices.  Instead hubby and I tend to add things to our own plates.  For this particular dish hubby and I both added Italian bread crumbs to our meals to give it a little more flavor.

Easy, Cheesy Beef and Noodles @ThisIsCoriEasy, Cheese Beef and Noodles
Serves 6

Ingredients-
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 package of wide egg noodles- COOKED
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 Tablespoons of dried chopped onion ( Hubby forgot to get the onion when he went grocery shopping so I pretended like I was on Cutthroat Kitchen and used what I had on hand)
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 cup light sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can of corn (feel free to throw in other veggies your family likes.  I want to try adding spinach next time)
salt and pepper to taste

Directions-

1. Brown ground beef with dried onion and Italian seasoning and drain.

2. Add corn. 
P12200943. Add cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soup.
P12200954. Add sour cream.
P12200995. Stir until well incorporated.
P12201006. Simmer covered for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
P12201027. Stir in cooked noodles.
P12201038. Stir in 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
P12201069. Allow cheese to melt and serve.
P1220108

Can you guess what I used each tool for?  I used the Flip Measuring Spoon to measure my seasoning and chopped dried onion (I LOVE how flexible the spoons are and how you can turn them inside out) , Safe-cut Can Opener to open the can of corn and pull the pull tab up on both cans of soup (a real nail saver plus the can opener leaves no rough edges), and Pot Clip Holder to hold my utensil so I didn’t have to dirty my stove or counter with it.
