PSO-RITE - holiday gift

For this one, I thought I would show the photo that shows what the item does.  This is the PSO-RITE self-massager.  Its patented design mimics the hand and elbow of a deep-tissue massage therapist and is used to release aches, pains and tightness in the neck, hips, shoulders, back, knees,  and more!   It can be used virtually anywhere from home to office, in waiting rooms or on the seat of a car.

This holiday season, the PSO-RITE also offers a perfect stocking stuffer portable version, the PSO-MINI.  Designed to replicate two fingers or the thumb, it works deep into muscles and can be used on sensitive areas including the temples and jaws, back of neck, elbows and the bottom of feet.

Simply Shari’s, an amazing gluten-free line of Cookies, Brownies, Pasta, Pizza and Sauces! Shari Cole founded Simply Shari’s in 2005 with her father to provide wheat free, gluten-free and GMO free food products that are well-balanced, nutritional, and delicious.

Fudge Brownies ($4.29 USD) Nothing is better than a moist and fudgy bite full of chocolate! These morsels are made of intense chocolaty heaven made with gluten-free flour and amazing top-quality chocolate. Our gluten-free Fudge Brownies are certain to satisfy your brownie cravings!

Lemon Shortbread ($4.29 USD) The satisfying texture of shortbread combines with a unique “lemony” flavor to satisfy your craving for a delicious gluten-free cookie. These wonderful treats are great with ice cream, or afternoon tea.

Quinoa + Marinara  ($3.49 USD) Italian-style food is always a favorite with kids and adults alike. Gluten Free Quinoa and Marinara is no exception! Quinoa is a super food known for thousands of years by ancient civilizations for its high protein content and easy digestibility and it is Gluten Free! Pour our easy-to-use marinara packet into water, bring to a boil and serve over hot gluten-free Quinoa noodles. Fabulous! Add gluten-free sausage, chicken, vegetables—create your own delicacy!

What I think:  My favorite of the three that I tried are the Lemon Shortbread cookies.  They are sweet and tart and make a nice snack with coffee or tea.  The brownies were a bit dry but fudgie.  I loved the quinoa noodles because they are a smart idea and more accessible than regular quinoa.  The sauce wasn’t my favorite, but you can pair the noodles with whatever sauce you like.

All-in-all these are great treats for people who need to follow a gluten-free diet. Enjoy!

Simply Shari’sis available at, Kroger, Giant, Garden of Eden, and Ralphs, among others
