My smiley360 mission - test new & improved PAM cooking spray

I was chosen by to try the new PAM® in the convenience of my own home on your gooiest, stuck-to-the-dish recipe! To complete my mission, I was provided the following:
•PAM® Cooking Spray
•Hunt’s Tomatoes
•Pyrex Glass Dish

Using the recipe book provided, I chose to make the "Easy Cheesy Enchiladas." This recipe was really easy to make.

Although this isn't necessarily a recipe review, I will say that the recipe turned out delicious.

But most importantly, the PAM cooking spray really did work. None of the enchiladas stuck or tore when being removed from the pan. As you can see, there was almost no baked on cheese or sauce left in the pan. What was left cleaned easily with simple soap and water.

I would highly recommend using Pam cooking spray. It is made with 100% canola oil, and a little goes a long way. But most important, it really does work. And any product that makes clean up easier, is beneficial.

***Please note that I received no form of monetary compensation for this post. I did receive a sample of the product to try in order to write a fair and honest review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own and were not influenced in any way

Bon Ami Review

For my review, I was provided the following products from ecomom:
1. Bon Ami Powder Cleanser – 14 oz.
2. Bon Ami Liquid Cleanser Tangerine and Thyme – 25 oz.
3. Bon Ami All Purpose Tangerine and Thyme – 25 oz.
4. Bon Ami Dish Soap Tangerine and Thyme -25 oz.
Before trying, the products, I researched the company’s history and the product ingredients on the Bon Ami website.
Bon Ami was originally developed as a gentle alternative to the gritty quartz-based scouring powders on store shelves in the 1880s. An enterprising young man noticed that the tools used to separate the unused feldspar mineral from the harder quartz were as shiny as silver. Bon Ami was born taking that waste product — feldspar — and mixing it with soap to make a cleanser that polished away dirt and stains without scratching. These days we call that “zero waste.” Back then it was a thrifty way to make a better cleanser. The same ideas are at work again. The Bon Ami formula has been updated for contemporary kitchen surfaces and contemporary sensibilities, with different products to meet different cleaning needs. The ingredients are simple, effective, and proudly listed right on the package. Bon Ami is always biodegradable, nontoxic and hypoallergenic. And be sure to notice the bottles. Yes, they’re a bit foggy sometimes. That’s because Bon Ami is using 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles for their products. Once again, Bon Ami has a use for something others have tossed away. And we don't stop there. Our labels and adhesive are the most compatible with the recycle stream. So go ahead and feel good about these plastic bottles.
I was excited to try these products as I am very conscientious about the chemicals used in my home. I also have quite a few allergies and am sensitive to perfumes and fragrances used in many products. I absolutely love the scent of the Tangerine and Thyme. It really is simple, clean and natural. If you take a big whiff, the scent is subtle and pleasant; no watery eyes from the fake chemical smell.
The Dish Soap cleans as well as any other conventional dish soap I have tried. Because there are no sulfates or other chemicals to make artificial foam, there are not many bubbles with the Bon Ami. But that is not a problem because the bubbles are not what does the cleaning. This product cleans dishes well.
I was also impressed with the All-Purpose Cleaner. It works great for getting those sticky, dried particles off your counter, stove-top, etc. One spray and one wipe and this product removes the mess.
The Liquid Cleanser and Powder Cleanser are both great cleaners that I used to clean sinks, bathtubs, even the barbecue. They work pretty much the same. It is a matter of preference if you like to start with a powder and add your own liquid or if you prefer to have it ready to go with one squirt. They have a little bit of “Grit” for cleaning, but not enough to scratch or cause any damage.
All in all these products clean great, are affordable, and are not damaging to the environment or your health. I will continue to use these products in the future.

Here is an article written by Tosca Reno of the Clean Eating Series

The Benefits of Coconut in All its Forms
I often get questions about the health benefits of coconut. Here are the ways you can enjoy coconut, and what it will do for your health:

Coconut oil is high in lauric acid, which acts as an antibacterial and antiviral agent, helping the body fight diseases such as influenza. Lauric acid is also a cardiovascular protector, helping prevent high cholesterol and blood pressure. Coconut oil aids weight loss since it is a medium-chain triglyceride and helps maintain a healthy thyroid. Coconut oil also offers nutrition for hair and skin, keeping them clean and moisturized, and its antioxidant properties help prevent premature aging.
Try it: Include coconut oil in a sweet tropical smoothie.

Coconut water is very low in fat, sugars and cholesterol, and high in potassium. Potassium helps restore electrolytes in the body, so coconut water is a great choice for rehydrating after a tough workout. Coconut water makes a great accompaniment to a post-workout Clean meal.
Try it: Drink coconut water as is, with a slice of lime on the side for tart flavor.

Coconut meat is taken from a mature coconut and used either fresh or dried in a number of dishes. A good source of fiber and manganese, coconut meat is good for a healthy digestive system, strong bones, normal blood sugar levels and even proper thyroid function. Make sure to choose unsweetened coconut meat to avoid added sugar.
Try it: Use shredded coconut meat in a Clean meal.

Coconut milk, derived from the meat of a coconut, has antimicrobial properties. It combats fungi and bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract. Just keep in mind that coconut milk should be used in moderation, as its fat content is somewhat high.
Try it: Use coconut milk to sweeten a Thai curry dish.

As you can see, the mighty coconut offers impressive health attributes. However you use coconut, you’ll be sure to reap the benefits.

Keep it Tight!
