NUGO Bars Review

NUGO was kind enough to send me some products to try and review.

Here is a little information from their website:

NuGo makes delicious and health snacks that meet everyone’s dietary needs. Our bars taste better than other nutritional foods because of our commitment to using the most wholesome ingredients and baking processes possible. NuGo believes that pure, natural ingredients are both better for you and better tasting. From our very first bar to the latest, we’ve maintained a commitment to creating great snacks without taking shortcuts. Each of our bars is full of the protein and whole grains that every diet needs.

Orange Smoothie: 10/10! I loved the taste. It reminded me of an orange creamsicle! YUM! I also enjoyed the fact that this bar had 11 grams of protein in it!

Vanilla yogurt 10/10! So good! Tasted like a vanilla milkshake in a nutrition bar! Yum Yum!

Raw Natural Energy Apple Cinnamon 10/10! Very chewy and definitely had a nice apple cinnamon flavor. Had the texture of a Larabar..

Raw Natural Energy Cranberry: 9/10! I liked the texture. The flavor was good but the cranberry taste was just a little bitter for me.

A long time waiting...

I have been waiting for this moment for a loooooooooooooonnngggg time...


No joke, about 2 years ago, I wrote an email to Poptarts and suggested a new flavor (Birthday Cake) to them. Well, what do ya know...the actual flavor name may be slightly different, but hey, it's still the taste I was hoping for! and BOY ARE THESE BABIES GOOD!!!!!!

I also experimented with a new twist to my wrap today... I saw it on another blog and decided to try it out... CREAM CHEESE & TURKEY!
Result: DELICIOUS!!!


For my Social Studies Class, we have to make a Paper Mache Globe...well, I used my time wisely and did it while I was "at work"... Myrtle helped me too! haha

It was fun to be able to do a fun project together, not to mention get it done while "on the job"

Taste of Teaching...

Here was my favorite outfit of the week!
I have spent the entire week at a local elementary school in a third grade classroom.
The students are all really sweet and pretty well behaved. Over half of them are gifted, and the whole class is above average! They are extremely bright and I'm really enjoying hanging out with them. I am gonna miss them between now and November! I will go back and observe for another week, and then I TAKE CHARGE TEACHING Math for a whole week!

I'm super excited! I'm having so much fun! My mentor teacher is wonderful! She is letting me do so much already. I take them around the school ALL BY MYSELF! I feel so grown up :)

Each day I am getting closer and closer to's crazy/scary/exciting all at the same time!

stay tuned...

That's It - Fruit Bars

That's It Fruit Bars was kind enough to send me their products to try and review.

Here is a little information from their website:

That’s It.TM bars grew from the idea that nature knows best. We agree. We believe that adding a bunch of extra stuff to natural fruit only takes away from the purity and balance that nature intended. Ingredient lists have never been this simple and this clean until now. We use only natural, GMO-free fruit and nothing else. Our goal is to make it convenient for people to get their “2-a-day”. That means that you get 2 whole servings of fruit from just one That’s It.TM bar. With taste, convenience and portion control, That’s It.TM has raised the bar on fruit.

I LOVE THESE BARS! What a yummy way to get your fruit intake for the day!

Apple and cherry. 10/10! SO SO GOOD! LOVE THE FLAVOR COMBO! texture was very chewy! YUM!

Apple and pear. 10/10! Good flavor and texture!

Apple and Apricot – 9/10! It was still yummy, but I enjoyed the other flavors just a tad bit more.

Thank you so much for letting me review your products. Please go visit their website and order your own! You won't be disappointed!!


Every once in a while, I ditch the workout clothes, curl my hair, and put on a little makeup for a date night with my hubby. Lucky for me, ...
