Gimme Jimmy's Cookies #Freshness #Review

I got a delicious tin of Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies and let me tell you, this is one of the best cookies I have tried. The challenge for us, taste the freshness each day. So we need it to eat one each day to see how everything was going, my job is so hard :).

On day one, I just could not resist eating about 3 with my cup of coffee and my girls definitely enjoy them too. The only downfall I have is that some of the cookies were broken, but either way, we eat them all.

GJCookies #review

By day 4 the cookies were still fresh and delicious, one key element is to keep the cookies in the original tin, this will keep them with zero expose to any element that can make them soft.

By day 7 most of the cookies were gone, but the freshness was still there, I kept some for more time and let me tell you, the cookies were delicious, fresh and full of flavors.

I really want to encore you to buy and try Gimmee Jimmy’s Cookies. Check out their website for more information and here are their social channels.

Cold Avocado and Cucumber Cream #SaboreaUnoHoy #ad

This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Hass Avocado Board. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Cold Avocado and Cucumber Cream #SaboreaUnoHoy #ad

Summer is coming to end and we start the with the everyday running of the school days. Now the my kids are in school I love to make healthy and well balance lunch using “Good Fats”, you know that are a lot of kinds of fats in our food and I want to bring to you a little awareness in this, over 75% of the fat in fresh avocados is naturally good fat making them a great substitute for foods high in bad (saturated) fat. Avocados are virtually the only fruit that contains monounsaturated fat, and they are sodium, cholesterol and trans-fat free.

Hass Avocados bring the good fats again to the table and you can prepare healthy and delicious meals with this amazing ingredient. The start of fall also brings Latino families the opportunity to enjoy and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and showcase their traditions with friends and family. So many of our traditions are rooted in the food, because nothing is better than a conversation a plate of guacamole, and the family recipes we share. Fresh Avocados play a central role in many Latino recipes and traditional foods.

Unfortunately Latinos also share the issue of higher type2 diabetes rates across our community. Eating well to maintain a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do to lower your risk for type 2 diabetes. Specially if came from a family like mine, where diabetes is on both sides. I grew up looking at my grandmother struggle with the food se eats, and for me it was very important to learn how to help my family to maintain a healthy life style.

HassMeme Series_ ENG-03

In so many ways and because avocados form a huge part in our everyday diet we need it to learn more and more different way to eat it. A lot of the recipes I learn during this process are so delicious and fresh and my hold family was super grateful and happy. Not only we are eating better but we also enjoy our meals more, our visits to the doctor are positives and we change the way we look avocados, now they are part of our healthy life style, a key in our nutrition and of course a delicious one.
