Cucamelons – Have you seen?

By May 2, 2017 Crazy Rants, General, People Treats

Okay so twice now on Facebook  I’ve seen pics of these little miniature watermelons.  The first time I saw them, I thought that maybe someone had just crossed a cucumber with a watermelon and got this cute little thing.  Not so!  You can actually buy seeds and or plants.  Supposedly they taste like cucumbers with a hint of lime.  I’m always looking for new fruits or vegetables to try because I’m trying to make healthy life changes.

Today, my husband, Norman, tagged me in another Facebook post about these little cuties.  I was reading the article and low and behold! you can order them on Amazon.com.  I spend a lot of time on Amazon as I’m a prime member and I have a firestick from Amazon and I have an Echo.  Yes I know.  Eventually my house will be a smart house.

 

Anyway, So I purchase 10 plants of these little cuties as well as some seeds for something called tigger melons.  These little melons look like orange watermelons on the outside and maybe cantaloupe on the inside.  

 

So in about a week, I will have my latest purchase from Amazon.  I’m really excited about growing these and actually eating them.  I love melons, just not much on watermelons because they seem really messy.  These are small enough, no messiness implied.

Have a great day!

Athletic Greens and Zip Fizz

By April 26, 2017 Crazy Rants, General, People Treats, Uncategorized

I have been using this product probably for close to a year.  It is wonderful.  It has like 73 vegetables and fruits in it and if you don’t eat a lot of vegetables it is great.  I haven’t lost any weight from just these, but, I combine them with zip fizz and drink it twice a day.  The zipfizz has lots of vitamins in it and it is really good, comes in several flavors.  I do not drink the Athletic Greens alone.  I always add flavor.   There is a link for the Athletic Greens on the sidebar.  It will take you to Amazon.com and you can either purchase a pouch or the travel packs.  Mine usually last about 45 days.  I don’t drink two every day, but I try to drink at least one.

The zipp fizz is a tube and like I said come in several flavors.  This gives me energy on top of my extra vitamins.  You can get a variety pack or a single box of 30 of any of the flavors.  They do carry the variety pack and some times a berry pack at Costco, but I like the Orange Soda or Orange Dream.  I’ve put a link for that as well on the side bar.

Go check them out.
