5 Dec


What’s in this post? Some product reviews AND a chance to win 1 of 2 $25.00 gift cards to Vitacost! How sweet is that?

I received a free goodie bag from Vitacost the other day. Don’t you just love free things? They’re the reason I get up every day…not really, but they do play a part.

Earnest Eats Dark Choco Mint

I love chocolate and I love mint. Can’t go wrong with this little bar of goodness. This company bakes these on baking trays! It’s real, whole food. Just delicious.

Vitacare gum.

Gum with vitamins and calcium? Did you know there was such a thing? Not me! This gum is really good. My rule of thumb for gum: two pieces at a time. Always. I really liked this gum. Super minty, which I love, and it didn’t hurt my jaws!

TeeChia Super Seeds Cereal

So good on yogurt! Look at all the goodness packed in this bag.
Chia, Flax, Quinoa, Amaranth, Ramon & Pumpkin
Gluten Free
6 g Fiber
1100 mg ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids
No Sugar Added
26 g Whole Grains
Antioxidant-Rich Seeds & Fruits
TeeChia = Lasting Energy & Satisfaction

BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) Lotion

The name says it all. This is the lotion I use after doing dishes. It’s so soft and it doesn’t have a strong scent. I love the way it makes my hands feel. So glad the nice guy, Andrew, threw this in for me!

OK, now for the good part! I will be giving away 2 $25.00 gift cards to Vitacost. So, you can do some shopping or yourself or maybe you can scratch a few Christmas presents off of your list!

Vitacost Cyber Sale

24 Nov

I do most of my shopping online. My husband and UPS and Fedex guys must think I have a problem. I stumbled upon Vitacost about a year ago when I was looking for PB2 and Chia seeds. You can’t find this stuff in the small town where I live. This site is a life saver for me. It beats driving a half hour to an hour to the nearest store. Especially in the winter. They have everything from almond milk to quinoa to diaper rash cream. Why am I talking this site up so much? Because today through Monday they are having a HUGE SALE and I want you, my friend, to save some big bucks and go shopping in your pajamas at home. Doesn’t that sound so much better than a crazy crowd?

With Vitacost, you don’t have to choose between stores that sell products you don’t really want at super-low prices, and stores that sell the better health and wellness products you want at crazy-high prices. They offer over 2,000 of the top, most-trusted natural brands, diet foods and healthy living essentials-the very best nutritional supplements, whole foods and sports nutrition-at discount prices, up to 50% off. And they’ll deliver them right to your door for FREE if your order totals $49 or more. Otherwise, shipping is just a small, flat-rate fee of $4.99, no matter how big the box.

So watcha waiting for? Go shopping! Chop chop!

The sale starts Saturday morning and ends Monday night – 15% off everything!



Take care of those kiddos.

6 Aug

What’s the most important thing to a mother? Or let me rephrase that. What should be the most important thing to a mother/parent? Health. You cannot put a price on the health of your child. Never. As a mom I do the best I can.  If you know me well, you know what my little family has gone through with our son’s health since he was born. We do not dwell on the things that have happened, we think of his future. Through all of the research I’ve been doing for myself about nutrition and fitness it cannot be more obvious to me how much food effects our health. Yes, I know there are exceptions and I am not a doctor or a nutritionist. But, I am a mom with the power of knowledge! I do not give Maddox crap to eat. It’s funny because he doesn’t even like that kind of stuff anyway. He’s trained at a young age! As parents we have the responsibility to teach our kids a healthy lifestyle. When I grew up my mom and dad would let us have a little treats, but we always had to ask and we always got a small amount. We were never crazy, bounce off the wall kids. I was actually the most boring kid in the world…ehem…anyway.

Maddox has to be on an antibiotic everyday. So, we have been giving him greek yogurt every night for his tummy. I found a really great product on Vitacost called Garden of Life RAW Probiotics. This is another way for us to keep his gut healthy with all of the antibiotics he takes.

Their description, “RAW organic, whole food probiotic formula specifically designed to meet the unique needs of children, RAW Probiotics Kids is formulated with powerful probiotics, 23 RAW and organic fruits and vegetables, plus RAW inulin, a prebiotic that supports probiotic growth. RAW Probiotics Kids delivers over 5 Billion live probiotic cells per daily serving.”

Check out these facts:
Supplement Facts
Serving Size: 3/4 Teaspoon (1.6 g)
Servings per Container: Approx 60
Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
RAW Organic Fruit & Vegetable Prebiotic Blend
Inulin, Banana (fruit), Strawberry (fruit), Cherry (fruit), Blackberry (fruit), Blueberry (fruit), Raspberry (fruit), Beet Juice (root), Carrot Juice (root), Spinach Juice (leaf), Broccoli Juice (flower & stem), Tomato Juice (fruit), Kale Juice (leaf), Red Cabbage Juice (leaf), Parsley Juice (leaf), Brussels Sprout Juice (leaf), Green Bell Pepper Juice (fruit), Cucumber Juice (gourd), Celery Juice (stalk), Garlic Juice (bulb), Ginger Juice (root), Green Onion Juice (bulb), Cauliflower Juice (flower & stem), Asparagus Juice (flower & stem) 1.52 g *
Probiotic Blend
Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus plantarum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus 81 mg *
Total Cultures 5 billion CFU

What the heck is my point you ask? My point is, we need to keep our kids healthy. So what if the other moms don’t do the same thing you do. So what if you weren’t brought up that way. I think kids this generation are an exception. There is so much crap in the food we eat, the juices, sodas, everything! We need to be on guard and protect them the way you see fit. There are just too many studies out there now that prove the food we eat can effect behaviors and health. We can’t look away anymore. We’re the parents. It’s our job!

Weigh your Grapes

12 Jul

I am all about my routines as you know. I had to slip away from my run this morning, which irks me. My hamstrings are still yelling at me. Not as bad as yesterday, but I didn’t feel like going for a slow, agonizing run. So, I slept in until a quarter to 6, which felt good I must say! When I miss a scheduled morning workout, I feel bad and my day seems to shift out of place. Then, the worst thing happened. I screwed up my peanut butter oatmeal. I have no idea what I did, but I screwed it up, and I had to make a new batch. Grrr!

Are you a slave to your food tracker, measuring cups and spoons, food scale? I am! And I am proud of it! I track my food with myfitnesspal. If you want to lose weight or monitor your nutrition this stuff is essential! Don’t eyeball your food, majority of the time you are going way over a serving size.


What else? Oh! Water! Do you drink enough? No? Why? You need lots of water. I hate cold water. I like it at room temp and I pretty much only drink it out of my trusty tumbler. Yeah, the same one too. My other tumbler just feels all


So happy when I have a package at the post office. Especially when it’s from Vitacost! Love this site! I order alot of my goodies from here. They have everything from cleaning products to chia seeds.

If you are interested in ordering, let me know. I can refer you and we will both get $10.00!

So, after writing this I feel all wimpy about not running. I am going to hit the foam roller and then run! Thanks for the push 🙂
