Professional Garlic Press Propresser (Review)

How do you get your garlic ready for cooking? Do you peel it, then crush it with a knife? We used to peel it ourselves or buy it ready in the jars from the grocery stores, to be honest! I received a Professional Garlic Press Propresser from Orblue recently to review. We cook with garlic frequently, but the week that I had received the press, we weren't cooked anything remotely related to a garlic dish.  
During the past two weeks, we made tacos one weekend, and this weekend, Steve used garlic in our chicken piccata, our sloppy joes and our cottage pie. The pictures that I took usually our Propresser were taken during the taco weekend.(That picture is on Instagram!) We both like the Propresser, because you don't have to peel the garlic! You put a clove of garlic in the chamber and SQUEEZE! It took me a little bit of squeeze power to squeeze the garlic! The pressed garlic when into the food, and the garlic skins stayed in the chamber! (The garlic skins do come out later, when you use the small thin black brush to clean out the basket or chamber!) From the product promotions descriptions, I"m borrowing what they said, because I happen to like how they explained something. "DESIGNED WITH EASE OF USE IN MIND - Hold the Propresser Garlic Press in your hand. Note the thickness of the handles and how comfortably your fingers wrap around them. With a clove of garlic nestled in the basket the handles are the ideal distance apart to maximize leverage. Gently squeeze the handles together. You'll be delighted at how easily, how effortlessly your Propresser Garlic Press produces perfectly minced garlic."  

It can mince garlic in one easy press! The press itself is made of 100% stainless steel, won't rust, won't weaken at the joints, and won't break. Knowing your luck, you will be able to pass it onto your children or not your grandkids!  The basket is large enough that you can do a few cloves . You seriously don't have to worry about the garlic clove's skins ending up in your food, they end up in the trash can or down the garbage disposal. I cleaned ours with dishwashing liquid and the little black brush that comes with it, then I left it to "Air dry". They do have an awesome guarantee!

We're quite happy with it, and maybe someday it will go to Steven! He's becoming a bit of a BBQ teen here, and he's helping out in the kitchen more!

Information About Osteoporosis (sponsored)

Disclosure: I was given information from the American Recall Center in order to share this information with my readers, and no compensation was received.

Here's some information in a graphic for you about osteoporosis.  It runs in my family on my mother's side, though we never knew whether or not if she had it (she passed away in '98).  Even though I'm a RN, I did not know that over 10.2 million adults have osteoporosis (yes, men get it, too) and another 43.4 million have low bone mass.

For more information, you can read about it at The Recall Center .

Weight Gurus Digital Bathroom Scale review

Do you have one of those scales that you like you are at the doctor's office? Or is yours like the kind where the pointer is visible through a piece of glass, and it points at a number weight? If so, you need to get technical and get a digital scale which syncs with your smartphone via an app! I was living in a semi digital world where my old scale (I won't name the brand!) didn't sync with any apps and did not keep track of my weight, much less give any numbers than "0.5" or ".0" along with my weight. 

I was getting frustrated with that old scale, since I am dieting per one of my doctor's order. I was blessed to be able to review Weight Gurus Digital Bathroom Scale . You can track your progress with it via a smartphone app that you can download from iTunes or Google Play, and it will sync your results from the scale to your app! I love it! It can help you stay motivated, when you see the graph of your weights for the days that you weighed! It can help you reach your goals! It can weigh up to 400 pounds.  You are able to read it with the backlit and X-Large LCD screen. Sync your measurements with your smartphone using Appsync technology! I forgot to mention that 8 separate users are able to use it and it stores their memory. The glass platform is made of impact resistant safety glass, which is a very good thing---since I'm klutzy! It takes 4 AAA batteries which are included. FYI---Please Note:  smartphones are NOT required for scale use. They do help, though, in aiding you to keep track of your data via Appsync.   Check out more information here: Weight Guru
I have a few pictures to show you about it!

The photo where I was weighing myself and had the app sync code with it is on Instagram. Go there to check it out!

Mega Mesh Premium Magnetic Screen Door Review

Have you ever wished that you had a screen door where you didn't have one? Are flying bugs driving you up the wall? Do you wish that the screen door would close itself after you walked through it?
I recently got the opportunity to review The Mega Mesh Premium Magnetic Screen Door. I really love it! I had a choice of three doors in our house to put it on, and  I chose our master bathroom door which goes to our screened-in patio. The screen's 36 inches across, and I chose a 30 inch doorway. I did have some overage, but that was okay. It's very easy to install: you first lay it out on the floor. It comes with velcro, and you put the velcro strips on it before you can hang it up. I was able to do the velcro part by myself, but when it came to hanging it up--- I had to get son the help me. Luckily, he's about 2 to 3 inches taller than me, and we put it up together. 

We peeled the paper strip off of the sticky side of the velcro strip, which was already on the magnetic screen edges. Next, we adhered it to the wall above the door (about 5mm higher in the middle) and around the door sides, pressing it to the wall. I need to go back and use the tacks (supplied with it) through the inner velcro, to keep it in place! It works great, keeping the flying bugs out, and our birds in!! I do recommend it! 

Features: easy to install, pet-friendly product, hands-free entry, cool your home, protection for your family.

Design: strong magnets sewn in, seamless automatic closure,  high quality micro mesh, withstands heavy traffic, velcro sewn into seam.

Cleopatra's Choice 100% Pure African Shea Butter in Ivory Color (Review)

How important is it for you to use organic product on your skin and/or your face? It's starting to become more important to me as the years go on. I may be a little bit older than some of my readers and then again, I maybe about the same age of some of my readers! 52, and my dry is pretty much all over my body this days. I was glad to have the opportunity to try this shea butter, to see what it could do with my skin! 

First, I'm going to tell you a few things about it:
* 100% pure  unrefined, organic shea butter
* deep-absorbing-- long lasting hydration
* Legendary for treatment of dry skin, minor burns & eczema (I did not know this before I received the product! I have eczema, and that is important to me. Hopefully my sister Laura will see this ---my niece Mary has eczema bad. From what I hear, it is worse that what my ever was!)
*Does not clog pores or leave skin greasy. 
*Pours rich amounts of Vitamins A & E into skin for hydration.
*Helps treat dreak spots (unfamiliar with these, this came from the package!), skin discolorations, stretch marks and blemishes.
* Fair trade product--produced by women subsistence farmers in Ghana, African.
* Also great for preventing wrinkles by keeping facial skin moisturized and for us as Lip Balm. 

I liked how it made my skin feel so soft and moisturized after it absorbed! It has a very mild fragrance, and it's not perfumey. I have even tried it on my heels, and applied sock on it afterwards! Unfortunately, I did not take any pics of the moisturized heels, mine are not sexy or beach-lovely!
I do like it!

Advanced Probiotic Ultra From Optimal Healthcare Labs (review)

I've been taking probiotics for about 4 years now, for a dietary supplement for digestive health, due to having irritable bowel syndrome. I had the opportunity to review Advanced Probiotic Ultra from Optimal Healthcare Labs, and I was glad to check their probiotic out! Two capsules, shown in the above picture with the bottle, is a daily dose. I usually take mine in the morning with breakfast. 
I have noticed that when I miss taking a day's dose a day or two, I tend to get constipated (I know, TMI, but if you've been reading my blog for some time, there isn't too much that I won't talk about!). If I keep on my daily schedule of taking the Advanced Probiotic Ultra, I have been less likely to get constipated, and I stay regular!   The probiotic care formula of theirs does the following:
* it promotes digestive health, * it replenishes natural balance of the good bacteria, * it supports immune health, and last but not least, * it helps reduce digestive upsets! The reason why I like their brand is because it doesn't  have extra added vitamins or other supplements, just the Probiotic bacteria: Bacillus Subtillus, L. Rhamnosus, L. Casei, B. Longum, L. Acidophilus, L. Plantarum,  and B.Breve. Please note that if you have allergies, it contains milk (lactose fermentation process).
