Tru-Nut Peanut Butter Review and GIVEAWAY!

Tru-Nut sent us some of their powdered Peanut Butter to review! Here's some info from their website: Powdered Peanut Butter is the newest thing to happen to peanut butter in… well, a long time.  Tru-Nut makes Powdered Peanut Butter in three flavors, original peanut butter flavor and chocolate, and their newest addition, CINNAMON. Unlike traditional peanut butter, Tru-Nut contains at least 85% less fat and fat calories.  Tru-Nut is non-GMO, all-natural and gluten-free.  So how is it made? Powdered Peanut Butter starts out with high oleic, roasted peanuts.  The peanuts are then pressed to remove the oils.  The peanuts are then ground into a fine powder that still retains all of the natural peanut flavor. Who says you can only use it to make peanut butter?  Tru-Nut is perfect for all kinds of uses, make Powdered Peanut Butter a part of your daily diet!

First of all, I have to share info from an email from the owner. "Our samples are hand made upon order fresh from an open jar. We don't pre-make them and allow for them to sit for extended periods of time." 
 We really enjoyed that these protein powders were super fresh! We appreciate the extra time and effort from the company. 
The flavors tasted great! I really liked the Peanut Butter Cookie and Banana Nut Bread. 
***Funny Story*** I immediately gave Jared the CocoaNut (since it was chocolate flavored and I don't eat chocolate). He said it tasted good, but that he didn't think I should try it becau…

Soy Protein Review and Giveaway!

We were recently sent some Soy Protein bars and a travel kit to review and host a giveaway! We were sent Eat-Smart Bars, Nogii Protein Bars and NOW Energy Bars. 
Here's some info about Soy Protein: These products will help make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need after a long workout with a key ingredient for success: soy protein.

Fall Happenings

We have been enjoying a lovely fall so far! Luckily, it hasn't been TOO cold yet, and I have been able to enjoy nice walks with the kiddos I nanny for during the day. I love the family! The kids are super sweet and a pleasure to hangout with, and the parents are extremely nice and help us with whatever we need during the day! Jared practices at a golf course on Mondays that is five minutes from the house, so he stops by for lunch when he can. The kids love him as well and he enjoys hanging out with them too. Yesterday, the weather was beautiful, so we headed over to the park to play for a while. It is right next to the golf course, so Amelia was super excited to "putt" with Mr. Jared. (she just rolled the ball on the green..hahaha) She also got to "pretend" she was driving the golf cart.
I've been trying some new recipes lately, and this was just one evening's menu. I made a version of chicken cordon bleu from a Hungry Girl Recipe.  I just eliminated…

************************************************************ Our Review:  9/10! These little bars were full of flavor and yummy goodness! The caramel apple was Kelsey's favorite. Jared liked the Cocoa Loco the best. (Go figure, considering Kelsey loves caramel and Jared loves chocolate! haha)  The only reason we gave them a 9/10 was because we wished they were bigger! (that always seems to be…
