FoodCubby sent me this product for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Several years ago, I sat with my aunt during lunch at an assisted care facility. Recovering from a stroke, my dear aunt struggled with her spoon as she scooped the bland food from plate to mouth. Ultimately, I took over with the spoon, and we chatted as she allowed me to feed her.

At the time, I wondered if products existed that simplified the eating process for those recovering from illnesses or who found using utensils a challenge.

Fast forward to today, and the answer is yes! FoodCubby graciously supplied me with a couple of sets of their unique product. Recently my mom and I tried them out, during our weekly dinner together.

This is my FoodCubby Review, with my honest opinions.

FoodCubby Review

What is a FoodCubby?

A FoodCubby is a silicone food divider that attaches by way of suction to a flat plate. Available in bright green or orange, a packaged set includes a larger and smaller divider, allowing the diner to customize her plate.

The silicone pieces are food safe, BPA and phthalate free and dishwasher safe, up to 300 degrees.

To use, wash and rinse the divider. Leaving slightly damp, press the divider firmly onto a clean, dry, flat plate. That’s it. Use two dividers, to create four spaces for food, or one to divide the plate in two.

The dividers clean up easily after use and tote well to restaurants or to a friend’s house.

Why Use a FoodCubby?

Uses for this ingenious product include:

Keeps foods separated, for those who do not like for their food to touch. This is especially common among children, however, some adults don’t like for their food to run together or touch. The FoodCubby is a simple way to keep foods apart.

Runny foods, such as gravies, sauces and juicy foods, are contained. They don’t “water down” regular foods.

Use a FoodCubby to push food onto a spoon or fork, without using fingers.

Ease the process of eating for toddlers who are just beginning to feed themselves, using utensils.

Ease the process of eating for adults who have had a stroke or struggle due to Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or other disorders that affect motor skills.

Use a FoodCubby for portion control. Each cubby holds 1/2 cup of food within its edges.

Eliminates the need for divided plates, which are bulkier to store.

My Experience with a FoodCubby

Mom and I each secured a large FoodCubby and a small one to our plates. We added two portions of stir fried veggies. We had plenty of space to add rice or a salad, if we’d prepared those.

I chose the bright green FoodCubby set, while Mom opted for orange. My sister and stepdad joined us for dinner and observed our experiment.

With the FoodCubby to push food against, it was very simple to scoop food onto my fork. My mom remarked several times that she didn’t use her fingers at all!

Typically, that’s a real dilemma. As food disappears, it becomes more difficult to get what’s left of the meal onto the fork, without using fingers or a hot roll or picking up a knife. With the FoodCubby, a secure edge was so convenient.

I can readily see how this product would benefit a child or an older adult that needs a little help. FoodCubbies offer a sense of independence for those who might otherwise require assistance. And those bright colors are fun!

After dinner each FoodCubby popped up when  we lifted the tabs on the corners. Clean up was a snap and they were ready to use again.

I imagined taking the dividers to a restaurant, so that an older adult or a young child could eat without help, preserving sense of self and independence.

Order a Food Cubby Set

I can highly recommend this fun and useful product. It makes a great gift for children and adults alike.

Check out the company’s website, FoodCubby. Order your sets through their site. Or order through Amazon, in GREEN or ORANGE.

My sweet aunt comes to mind, when I use FoodCubby. She’s passed on, no longer in need of any kind of assistance. However, I think she would have laughed over the bright colors and the novel idea…and happily picked up her spoon to try it out.

CBD Living Water

CBD Living sent me this product for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

When CBD Living contacted me about trying their CBD Living Water, I immediately answered yes. Healers have used cannabis for centuries because of its health benefits. The medical community is coming to realize that because CBD (cannabidiol) and other compounds in cannabis are similar to the chemicals created in our own bodies, they are integrated better than many synthetic drugs.

Missouri recently joined 29 other states, legalizing medical marijuana. Almost overnight, it seems, CBD stores popped up around Joplin, selling oil and other products. And sales are strong for good reason. CBD oils, tinctures and products are hot items that are helping many people feel better.

Water infused with CBD intrigued me. I agreed to try it and report my honest experience.

What are the health benefits of CDB?

Before trying the water, I researched the health benefits of CBD.

CBD is not the same as THC, the psychoactive compound known for producing mind altering effects. You don’t get high from CBD. Instead, this component of cannabis acts as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant and antioxidant.

Health benefits of CBD include:

  • Reduces anxiety and may be effective for people with social anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder.
  • Helps to fight cancer by inhibiting cancer cell migration and invasion.
  • Treats neurological disorders such as epilepsy. Early studies show that CBD may be promising for treating resistant seizures. Other benefits include increased alertness, better mood and improved sleep.
  • Promotes cardiovascular health and lowers the risk of diabetes.
  • Relieves pain and inflammation, which is the most common reason for CBD use. It is proving especially helpful for chronic pain and inflammation.

CBD Living Company

With those facts about CBD out of the way, allow me to introduce you to CBD Living and their water.

CBD Living was established in 2013 and they are headquartered in Corona, California. Their hemp is organically grown in Colorado, at a state licensed farm.

CBD Living offers an array of products including CBD infused water, capsules, gummies, patches, soaps, bath bombs and more. The secret to their superior products, according to their website, lies in the use of nanotechnology that reduces CBD into nano-sized droplets, without the use of emulsifiers. This process allows CBD to absorb into the body more efficiently.

The proprietary technology increases the CBD bioavailability up to 90 percent, delivering CBD directly to the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system. CB1 receptors are located primarily in the brain, while CB2 receptors are predominately located in the immune system.

CBD Living pays above market rates to their extractors and manufacturers. Their products are all fair trade and never tested on animals.

CBD Living Water

CBD Living Water

I received six bottles of CBD Living Water to try. Each 500 ml bottle of water contains 10 million nanograms of highly absorbable and bioavailable CBD.

CBD Living Water is made with 100% organic, natural hemp CBD extracts using nanotechnology to infuse the extracts in 9+pH alkaline water. Vitamins, minerals and nutrients are infused as well. The bottles are BPA and BPS free.

Each bottle contains two servings, taking the guesswork out of dosage. Bottled water means convenience and portability. Grab a bottle and go…to the gym, on a walk, or tackle the errands on the to do list…and stay hydrated while experiencing the benefits of CBD.

My Experience with CBD Living Water

I’m drinking half a bottle of CBD Living Water a day. And this is what I notice.

I immediately feel more relaxed, without being drowsy. It’s a mellow feeling. Or what I call an overall sense of blissful wellbeing. I sleep well at night. And I love that the water is alkaline and infused with vitamins, minerals and nutrients. It feels healthy for me on multiple levels.

The biggest impact I’ve noted is pain relief in my neck. After a horrific car accident in 1995, I suffered with years of chronic neck pain. The twisted, messed up vertebrae freak out doctors and chiropractors when they look at my x-rays.

Switching to a plant based diet helped tremendously, eliminating the nagging chronic pain. Lately however, long hours spent on my computer during the day aggravates my neck, resulting in moderate pain and stiffness by bedtime.

I drank my first half bottle of CBD Living Water at the end of a long day working online. (The taste is great, like good quality water.) Within 15 minutes, I realized I had no pain in my neck. None. The discomfort completely disappeared. Ten days later, sipping on half a bottle of water a day, I am still pain free. I seem to have greater range of motion in my neck as well, without the cracking and popping that normally accompanies turning my head.

That’s exciting to me. That’s encouraging to me. And sipping on water is such a simple and easy way to ease pain and improve health and wellbeing. Thank you CBD Living, for letting me try your product!
