Life gets hectic in the fall. I love to cook, but there’s no shame in having help. My newest discovery is Clean & Colorful Kitchen. You can’t go wrong with a made-from-scratch meal, created from fresh and local ingredients!
Nothing is more annoying than something getting in the way of an effective workout. Whether it’s a time crunch, a crowded gym, or a visit from “Aunt Flo,” there are steps you can take to ensure you still get the most out of your workout.
Have you guys been on Instagram lately?
That’s a rhetorical question.
Last week my feed was filled with peeks inside my trip to the NOW Foods headquarters in a Chicago suburb. I was one of 7 lucky FitFluential bloggers that spend 2 days immersed in NOW, getting an insider look at the company and their passion for providing high-quality, affordable products.
But first, schwag:
At the end of this post, there is an opportunity for YOU to win ALL of these goodies too. It’s filled with supplements, gluten free-pasta, sugar-free sweetener, and even an oil diffuser!…
We’re rivaling a certain international pancake house this week.
Do pancakes ever really get old?
We got back in town from the softball tournament late Sunday and two days later I STILL hadn’t been to the grocery store. No eggs, no milk, no bacon (just a well… apparently that causes cancer now) in the house.
Thanks to Fit Body Bakery and Fit Approach, Vegas and I had plenty of Power Up Pancake Mix to sustain us. You’re supposed to simply add eggs and water… but seeing as how we had no eggs, I made a flax egg. It worked like a charm!
Protein and I have had a long romance.
Add peanut butter to that and I’m in heaven.
When The Vitamin Shoppe sent me a giant nut butter-filled package from their protein pantry I was thrilled. Even Vegas got all wide-eyed as we pulled out all the goodies.
Spoiler: There’s a giveaway for a $100 gift card at the end of this post.
Some things are embarrassingly easy.
And some are embarrassingly hard.
Today I have an easy recipe for you. Making lemonade in the blender.
Here’s the recipe: put a bunch of lemons in a high-speed blender (I’m biased towards my Vitamix) with some water and sweetener. Blend. Strain. Drink. Boom.
I’m a snack junkie.
If I’m honest I’d rather snack and have a meal.
If you’re a snacker like me, you can imagine my excitement when I received a GIANT box of jerky from Jack Link’s. Turkey jerky, teriyaki turkey jerky, chicken jerky… it is basically outdoor snacking deliciousness.
And by outdoors, I don’t just mean sports (though Vegas and my favorite softball snack is jerky).
I should probably stop celebrating my birthday now.
But at 32 I’m just not that mature yet.
Vegas had an amazing surprise planned for me on my birthday… but she didn’t wait until the day of to treat me! And – because I don’t think you should stop being treated either – I have a delicious (healthy-ish!) cheesecake dessert giveaway for you at the end of this post.
So. To begin the birthday celebration we first went to a fabulous dinner on my birthday-eve. The Patio on Goldfinch has been on my list to try for a long time. Vegas picked me up in my freshly washed car (another treat!) and we had a lovely evening out. How fabulous does this look?!
