This week’s edition of the Friday 5 is full of food stuffs! Basically, it’s what I’ve been living on in the last month. Herbalife nutritional shakes, Caulipower pizza with Don Ricardo’s Pique Sauce on top, and Us Two Tea to soothe and calm me down. The little one? She’s loving the guided meditation Z Button. These products make treats for yourself as well as awesome gifts! Check them out and as always, send me an email at themoodyblonde (at) gmail.com and let me know what you think!
You’ve had a Pinterest Fail or two in your life right? I know I sure have! I’m actually considering making it a blog category! What if your Pinterest fail turned into a to $100MM business in just 2 years? That’s what happened to Gail Becker, whose initial inspiration was to find a pizza her 2 Celiac sons could enjoy. Now, Caulipower Pizza is the #8 best selling pizza in America! Pretty impressive, right?
So is the taste! For a second I forgot I was eating cauliflower. With less than half the sugar of leading gluten free pizzas, Caulipower pizzas taste like real pizza. They crisp like real pizza, the toppings don’t soak in, the cheese gets all ooey-gooey-melty…you can’t even tell they’re gluten free. Not only are they perfect for those who live a gluten free lifestyle – anyone who wants a healthy pizza alternative can enjoy them. Just think of the possibilities here! Kids will eat healthier pizza, all night college test cram sessions won’t contribute to the Freshman 15…this product is changing the way America eats pizza!
Caulipower pizza comes in several different flavors like Three Cheese, Pepperoni, and Margherita. You can also get the plain crusts to make your own version – buffalo chicken, anyone? Also Caulipower makes tortillas! I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m dying to give them a shot! Grain-free tortillas? Yes please!! Check out Caulipower on Instagram for more info!
When it comes to hot sauce, Don Ricardo’s Pique Puerto Rican Hot Sauce is all of that and more! I’ve been putting this stuff on EVERYTHING! The sauce comes in a perfectly blended bottle of tropical fruits and Caribbean spices that looks great on the counter and even better on your food! It’s a sauce unlike any other – once you try it, you’ll never want another hot sauce again!
Do you have a hard time getting your kids to bed at night? Especially after a long and exciting day of playing outside? I don’t know about you, but for my little one, it’s still pretty light out when she goes to bed and you can hear the older kids outside still playing on the streets. Guided meditation is a great way to get her to sleep…but who has time to meditate with their child? I want to put her to bed and then go downstairs and finish cleaning up dinner so I can start winding down for bed too!
A father of 3 with similar problems invented the Z button – it helps parents like me have a peaceful bedtime. The sound button plays plays a relaxing guided meditation sound track when you push it. Now, I tuck my daughter in, say her prayers, and push the Z button on my way downstairs. Before you know it, she’s snoring peacefully! (As peacefully as a person can snore anyway!) The Z button is available on Amazon. Check it out and give yourself a little vacation this summer too.
Herbalife Nutritional Shakes
Herbalife’s delicious protein shakes are loaded with essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are perfect for busy people. With the end of the school year here, I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off! Herbalife shakes allow me to grab a nutritious meal on the go and still make it to that 8am awards ceremony on time!
Herbalife sent me the following:
- The number one brand in the world in meal replacement shakes(Euromonitor 2018*).
- Made with plant-based protein, and provides customers with an easy-to-prepare, healthy, balanced meal.
- Comes in a variety of flavors and is a delicious, healthy option for people on-the-go.
- Great tasting, high-protein snack that satisfies hunger and boosts your protein with 15 grams of protein, 5 grams of carbs and 24 grams of vitamins and minerals per serving.
- Mix with water for a nutritious protein snack.
- For added protein, add the Protein Drink Mix to the Formula 1 shake for a healthy meal.
- Offers a relatively high protein content per serving, without excess calories.

Wouldn’t it be cool to be a part of a one-hour Taiwanese tea ceremony? I don’t know about you, but as fun as that sounds, I usually drink my tea on the go. Taiwanese tea has been proven to have various health benefits, and the people at Us Two Tea have curated teas that soothe, spark conversation, strengthen the mind, and ease the stress of the everyday.
Often described as “The Champagne of Tea,” Taiwanese tea is crafted by hand and known for its authentic taste. Taiwanese tea is also rich in antioxidants, polyphenols and catechins believed to nourish and heal. Us Two Tea is found by a 28-year-old girl boss Ranmu from Shanghai. I’m always happy to support a female run company! Do yourself a favor and check out Us Two tea. (One hour ceremony optional but not required.)
That’s it for this week. I’m always on the lookout for new products to recommend to my audience. Want your product featured in the next Friday 5? Contact me at themoodyblonde (at) gmail.com!
