Snack Attack + Giveaway — With — @gomightynut #eatmighty #sweatpink

Happy Thursday! #TGIT (THANK GOD IT’S Thursday!)

Side Note:

I’ve been away from technology, (not particularly by choice!) however, here for a brief moment, I stayed as far away as possible, because nothing seemed to work quite right! Much needed… now that “break” is now officially over! And I am just totally inspired to really get back into the “life groove” again! The personal work, that I have been doing ON & FOR myself has been well worth the “life interruption,” that came with my technological challenges lately! There is a lot more personal issues involved as well, but that’s for a much later date, because I am on track again and loving life a little more each day! I am MOVING FORWARD and spending a lot of time working on gratitude, true gratitude, and it’s literally life changing. 

One thing I have been doing lately, is really being true to eating clean! When I fall off the wagon, I fall off the wagon. However, ever since my trip to Seabrook for my retreat. I have been excelling at this area. I have been very, very mindful about what I eat and what I put into my body. Really paying attention to when I am “really” hungry. And, watching out for when I am HANGRY! I’m not kidding this a real thing,and for someone like me, who experiences Binges, it’s best that I not get “Hangry!”

Thus….

I’ve been really good about my meal planning, prep, and having plenty of snack’s on hand! 

The two flavor’s I received from http://www.mightynut.com/ Vanilla and The Regular PB flavor are fantastic! They’re like a million uses for them. I was really happy that everything cooked with the powders, turned out excellent!

And, it adds to and blends well with coffee (my #1 thing I use to choose my protein,) for a quick on the go, yummy coffee with protein has always been one of my favorite post workout snacks.

Green Smoothie’s that taste like PB Cups is always a win!

Super Easy Recipe:My  PB Cup Smoothie

  • 2 TBSP Organic Cacao Powder
  • 2-4 Handfuls of Greens.

Try It Thursday — Bulu Box #LoveBulu + Discount Code

HAPPY THURSDAY! 

Ohh I woke up sore this morning! Great workout last night! I made it to Seattle and went to a For The Glow workout the night before. Today, I venture down to Seabook for my fitness retreat. I planned on working out and taking off from there, but after I hit snooze for the last time, I read the email (wish I would of seen it last night!) that we are not leaving until later. but. I’m up and ready to “get after it!”

What I am loving right now…

Bulu Box! 

LoveBulu

I was so excited to get this baby in the mail

MyBuluBos

How does Bulu Box work? 

1. TRY SAMPLES

You’ll LOVE discovering new products, but just as important as finding your new healthy faves is seeing which products don’t work for you.

Try 4-5 samples based on your profile before buying full-size so you don’t waste your money.

2. EARN POINTS

Speaking of money, want some more? Each month you can earn up to 100 Rewards Points (that’s $10!) just for subscribing and sharing your thoughts. Log in to your account to fill out your sample surveys about the products you just tried.

3. CASH OUT

Once you’ve earned Rewards Points you can use them like actual cash towards a full-size purchase of your new favorite product. Some Bulugans even get their order completely free! How many points can you rack up?

My Review: I loved every product in my Bulu Box. It was like getting a present. And, it will be like getting a present every month.  found some new products that I absolutely love and get with a chance to try them out first, before spending a fortune on something you end up that doesn’t taste good or something that I just do not like! (Common we have all done It!) I researched the products that I received and everything was up to my standards.

This is especially helpful, to those who do not live in big cities with a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. I have a local health food store and they are going to be getting in the Runa Tea for me. I really liked it.

Also, included in the box is coupons for the products!

*Full disclosure: this is a sponsored blog post. My opinions are my own. I received a box from BuluBox to try out, fell in love ,and I will be continue the monthly service. I love finding new healthy stuff to try! I am so happy with what I received and look forward to my next box!

Nicole’s Naturals #GFree Pancake & Waffle Mix Review and Giveaway #FitFluential

Happy Tuesday!

Or perhaps, I should say, “Try It Tuesday!”

Who doesn’t LOVE Waffles and Pancakes!?!?!

Recently, I was given a can of Nicole’s Naturals Gluten Free Waffle and Pancake Mix to review and host a giveaway. Through my affiliation with FitFluential.

I fell in love! I’m already ready to order my next can of Mix. It was a HIT with the whole family and they didn’t even notice or care that it was Gluten Free – Wheat Free – and Soy Free.

I did a lot of experimenting with toppings and batter add in’s such as fresh fruit, Greek yogurt! I didn’t capture a picture but, I added in Spurlina Powder on St. Patrick’s Day to make some awesome “Green” pancakes! I plan on making some Easter Gluten Free color dye waffles for Easter Breakfast/Brunch. Check out Nicole’s Naturals Pinterest Board for some awesome inspiration and recipes!

waffle Pic

While I do love simple. Waffles and fresh strawberries. I found out the BEST add in that my family LOVED the most was Apple Cinnamon Waffles & Pancakes. because my family wanted both. Really easy! I just chopped up some beautiful Organic Gala apples, chopped them into very small pieces & cooked them until soft with some medium high Unrefined Coconut Oil.

I’ve tried lot’s of recipes to make my own GF Batter, but this was by far the cheapest, simplest, and most tasty option!

Secret Recipe… My Husband whom learned this trick from his father, has used Pancake Batter on fish & Shrimp for years, Vs. Tempura or Beer Batter.

Just made the batter as instructed and added just a touch of garlic powder. The shrimp came out perfect! Again, I used the medium high heat Coconut Oil and the shrimp was crisped to perfection. It was family approved AND requested again! It will also, be great to use as batter for any kind of white fish, green beans, asparagus, onion rings, and pretty much anything you would typically batter fry!

TIP ALERT —  WHAT TO DO WITH LEFTOVER FISH AND SHRIMP?!?!?

* Store it in a Ziploc with paper towels surrounding it. Heat oven to 350 and throw the leftovers on a cookie sheet and in 5-8 min you have crispy fish or shrimp, which tastes exactly like you made it the first time! Not soggy like if you tried to microwave it!

* Favorite dip… Ghee or whatever you use for better melted in garlic powder. (TO DIE FOR!)

My Oatmeal Review~The Most Important Meal of The Day~ Simplified~

Happy Friday!!! TGIF!!! When you are a super busy College Student Friday’s have a whole new meaning!

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to do a review from My Oatmeal.com through Fit Approach AKA #SweatPink & I jumped at the chance, once I checked out the website!

Build your own combination, shipped directly to your mailbox! I was so excited I accidentally ripped the bag (lol! ) On the left Pictured is the PB Lean Powder which is amazing, It has been super yummy addition to my Green Smoothies too! On the right is Organic Oatmeal Gluten Free, Thick Rolled Oats. I added Flax and Chia Seeds. There are literally…..

22 Billion combinations of healthy oatmeal!

I decided not to get too crazy with the ingredients on my first order. I wanted a simple staple to add my own fruit and experiment with baking. My next order is going to be Cookie Dough and Cheesecake! Separate of coarse lol! Oh yes! I have new staple to my diet! Forget BK… “You can have it your way!”

Oatmeal is so good for your Heart. I have high Blood Pressure and a long family history of heart disease.
image

O-M-G this was so good! No Sugar needed!

Pictured below; The GFree Oats (already had Flax and Chiat in it), with the PB Lean powder, I added a little almond milk, a little cinnamon, and Fresh Blueberries. It was SO GOOD and ready in less than ten minuets from start to finish! My kids both LOVED it too! I’m think I’m going to have to hide the flavored ones that I ordered from them. Just Kidding! I will let them pick their own flavors and combinations!

image

This morning I have some fresh Honey Crisp Apples that I am going to add to it, with cinnamon!

I don’t think I could rave about this stuff enough! It was so delicious! when my order comes in, I will post some cookie and power bar recipes!
