FREEKEH Foods Review and Recipe

Over the past few weeks, I have had the chance to review (meaning cook and eat!!!!) the fabulous Freekeh Foods.

Curious as to what Freekeh really is? I’m glad you asked :) Read on for this info straight from the source:

What is Freekeh?

So glad you asked! Freekeh is a process which means “to rub” in Arabic. Freekeh was created by accident nearly 2,000 years ago when a Middle Eastern village was attacked and their crop of young green wheat was set ablaze. Most folks would sulk over their misfortune, but the crafty villagers rubbed off the chaff, cooked it up and “Eureka!” Freekeh was created. We’re proud to offer you this tasty, nutritious ancient grain with a funny name.

So what do you do with Freekeh?

The question should be… what can’t you do with it? We love it in soups, pilafs, salads, you name it! There really is no wrong way to Freekeh! So go ahead — unleash your imagination and make it your own. Adopt it, fall in love with it.

 

Freekeh truly is one of the most versatile grains I have worked with AND the texture is amazing. I tried two different types (regular and rosemary sage) and was able to find LOADS of recipes on their site.

The family favorite was the Freekeh Jambalaya. We had this after returning from a trip to New Orleans, where we tasted the real deal. The Freekeh Jambalaya was a winner and hit the spot :)

Freekeh is a nutritionist approved way to add more healthy grains to your diet and reap the benefits from fiber, carbs and all natural goodness.

 

TIGHT Review of RBX Capri

Hello people!

It’s flex Friday AND review day…..it’s been a while since I’ve given a review.

Today will be a brief review of the new RBX Capri. I specifically tested the digital camo capris.

RBX

Let’s dive in to the three F’s for any clothing review: Fit, Function, and Fashion (in that order please).

1. FIT

These leggings have a compression fit, making them wonderful for weight lifting as well as higher impact activities such as kickboxing and MMA ( a fave for me). The flat seams make them very comfortable and you can’t see anything through them in any light. You ladies know how important that is…..you hate putting on your yoga pants and looking good in your room only to have your best friend point out that everybody can see your granny panties in the mall. Not flattering. No worries with these. They fit true to size. I am a size 4 or small in most clothes and ordered a small in these which fit like a glove.

2. FUNCTION

This is where it gets technical, but just as important as fit. The RBX capris feature moisture wicking fabric, four-way stretch, flat lock seams, and fade resistant material (you know that’s why we always hang things…..well, one of the why’s). That means that these tights are the X-Man in your gym gear arsenal. My favorite thing is that the waistband doesn’t shift or roll. So you’re not always having to hike your pants back up to where they belong.

3. FASHION

I was incredibly surprised with how many things this camo capri already complimented in my closet. You can pair it with a slightly longer shirt for grocery shopping or movies (though I wouldn’t go so far as to try to dress them up…they are active wear people). The length is just right and they actually make legs appear a bit longer, which is hard with capri pants.

Overall, I fell in love with these tights and they are not pricey at ALL, which makes me love them more.
