Foodtweeks Eat Healthier & Help Fight Hunger in America!

5d1e97df8d094bd18c060aa4f7a9572b35df0b83

Well, if you have been a follower of SoCal City Kids for awhile, you know I am into causes! I like to make a difference and help others whenever possible! I’m not sure if it is all my past experience working in non-profit and with families and different causes, but causes really matter to me! So, I actually was quite excited to find out about this app. September is “Hunger Action Month,” a nationwide campaign mobilizing the public to take action on the issue of hunger. This is the time of year when families are still adjusting to the “back to school” schedule and getting kids to all of their extracurricular activities. For many, this may not be the ideal time for them to volunteer at their area food bank with their children. So, there is a much easier way!

There is a simple and family friendly tool that can help everyone feel involved and raise awareness at the same time. That tool is a free mobile app called foodtweeks™ which has the dual purpose of helping its users to manage their weight by trimming calories from their favorite foods, and donating calories to food banks to help provide nutritious meals to those struggling in the community.

Each time a foodtweeks™ user reports “tweeking” (cutting calories from their food), a local food bank will receive donations from foodtweeks™, enabling the food bank to distribute an equal number of nutritious calories to hungry families – at no cost to the user. By using social media to get the word out about the “tweek” they used, they can double the calories donated and help raise awareness about the reality of hunger in America. 

I had the opportunity to check this out (by the way is is a FREE app!) and it is easy to use and it is so helpful in cutting calories and eating healthier. I really like that it donated the calories to food banks! That is actually my favorite part! It is actually fun to use this app and it is a great way to help others! You can actually double your donations very easily! All you do is  download the foodtweeks™ mobile app for your Android or iPhone. It’s FREE! Then you create your FREE account and when you create your FREE account, you simply use the promo code MOMS! Now, how easy is that?!  Here is the link to the website: visit http://www.foodtweeks.com/communities/moms/ promo code MOMS #calories4good

Priority Chef’s Premium Garlic Press A Must-Have for crushing and mincing garlic!

20140920_132236

Looking for a way to crush and mince peeled or unpeeled garlic? If so, the Priority Chef’s Premium Garlic Press is for you! I just love how easy this is to use! I especially love how I do not need to peel the garlic first! That is usually my least favorite part and that alone will sometimes prevent me from cooking with fresh garlic. But, this Garlic Press is so easy to use and so easy to clean! It is even dishwasher safe. I also like the quality and that it is stainless steel so I really do think that this will last a long time and it shouldn’t rust.(It is Premium industrial strength 18/10 stainless steel.)  It has a lifetime guarantee but I doubt that it will need to be returned. Besides all that, it is quite stylish and would make the perfect gift for anyone especially garlic lovers! It really is a Must-have for the kitchen!  You can find it at Amazon.com.
