Qrunch Foods Review

Image
Qrunch Foods sent us some Quinoa Burgers to review. (My phone messed up and had to get it fixed so I lost the first couple pics, unfortunately) Here's some info from their website: My business partner and co-founder of the company, Brad Holley, is a classically trained chef. I’m a former restaurant marketing executive. Brad’s daughter is gluten-intolerant, and so is my wife. We knew from their experience that finding tasty, convenient gluten-free products could be frustrating. And we wondered why food that was “good for you” tasted so tasteless. It seemed to us that “gluten-free” had become associated with anything free of good flavors and “vegan” was simply thought of us as “yuck.” We knew it didn’t have to be that way. So, we began tasting and experimenting with organic grains, produce, spices and other ingredients with the goal of incorporating them into something we’d want to eat ourselves—more important, offer our loved ones. But we didn’t take the usua…

Go Vida Freeze Dried Fruit Review

Image
GoVida Foods sent us some freeze dried fruit to review!  Unfortunately, my phone messed up and I had to take it to the store to fix it, so my photos were deleted! :( But, I found this awesome pic from their website!
Our Review: 10/10! These snacks were incredibly delicious! We loved the fact that they were JUST PURE FRUIT, and full of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins! Our favorite flavor was the Strawberry with Dulche de Leche. TALK ABOUT HEALTHY INDULGENCE!!! It was like eating a dessert! SO GOOD! We enjoyed the other flavors as well. They were a perfect after dinner snack!

Life Update: Jared made it on the Web.Com Tour!!!

Image
It's been a while since we updated the blog about what's going on in our life! 
Last month, Jared and I went to California so he could play in the FINAL stage of the Web.Com Tour Q-School! 

I was SO THANKFUL that I was able to take off from work and be there with him EVERY step of the way! 
The first few days, he played practice rounds. The weather was a little chilly at first, but the last few days it was WARM, which I absolutely LOVED!!!

He played at two courses, and they were both BEAUTIFUL! The scenery was UNREAL.
He was able to get his clubs fixed inside the TaylorMade trailer and was blessed with new golf balls to use for the tournament!

I REALLY learned a lot about what went on during tournaments and I'm so thankful because it helped me get a better understanding of what Jared goes through. It's a LOT to learn, but I'm doing my best and I have come a LONG WAY, that's for sure! 
We took some pics during the practice rounds, because there was no phot…

Stonyfield Yogurt Review

Image
Stonyfield yogurt was kind enough to send us some coupons to try their products and review!  Here's some info the company sent: A recent study from Stonyfield organic yogurt and Lindberg International found that 71 percent of Americans are worried about pesticides in their food and almost three out of four respondents (74%) would like to eat food produced with fewer pesticides. With so many people expressing a desire to avoid these chemicals, the study found a good deal of confusion when it comes to food labels, the best way to know if pesticides are used in the production process. In particular, confusion arises when comparing the buzz term “natural” to the USDA Certified Organic seal. In fact, more than half (56%) of respondents incorrectly identified organic attributes such as “made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides” and “made without the use of synthetic hormones” to products labeled natural. This year marks Stonyfield organic yogurt’s 30th year in business …
