Mee Eat Paleo Review

            (photo from Mee Eat Paleo website... I lost mine when my phone messed up)

Paleo MeeNut Butter was sent to us to review! Here's some info from their website:

**Each jar is a labor of love, handmade fresh by yours truly. Paleo MeeNut Butter is handcrafted from start to finish, right down to jarring with a spoon and a scale!**
Mee Eat Paleo tries her best to use the highest quality locally-grown ingredients whenever possible. We love to support our country’s small businesses! Keepin’ it real in the USA! My goal is to source the majority, if not all, of my ingredients from California organic & peanut-free local growers. Almost there, whoohoo!!! Mahalo for your patience! :)
You can also trust that there are never any added sugars in our products, not even ones that are considered “acceptable” such as honey or maple. Feel free to add these to our products yourselves for a clean treat but we won’t do it for you. 


Our Review:
WOAH! This nut butter was super jam packed 4 different nuts! It was SUPER flavorful and filling. We enjoyed it on our toast in the morning for breakfast. This nut butter is the perfect protein to refuel your body after a tough workout, or just to plain enjoy the awesome taste of it throughout the day!

Paleo Sweet Tooth Almond Butter Review

Paleo Sweet Tooth sent us some of their almond butter to review! 
Here's some info from their website:


To offer our health-conscious customers the world’s most delicious almond butters using only the best natural ingredients.

About Us

We are two full-time business women and mothers to young children. We work hard, we play hard, and we care about what we put in our bodies. Food must be both nourishing and able to meet the demands of our insanely busy lifestyles. We love to stay active and are constantly on the hunt for clean, whole foods that are free of preservatives, artificial sweeteners and hydrogenated oils.

The Birth of Our Nut Butter

While experimenting with variations of our Cross Bar in the kitchen we discovered that fresh, flavorful nut butter was the bedrock of our to-die-for desserts! We experimented with a number of different brands of almond butter but were never completely satisfied with the quality of the product. We wanted the ability to control every ingredient that goes into our bars while supporting our local almond farmers. It was then that we began creating our own line of unique Almond Butter. We’re obsessed with our Honey, Maple, and Beet Almond Butters and we think you’ll love them, too!

Our Review:
WOW! We totally fell in love with this almond butter! The first one we tried was the Maple flavor on our toast in the morning. OH MY GOODNESS. Talk about DESSERT for breakfast! 
Next, we tried the Honey flavor and it was just as tasty! Sweet flavor and tasty as ever! 
The one we were MOST surprised about was the original flavor! We thought it wouldn't taste quite as good as the others because it was plain, but BOY were we WRONG! It even had a sweet coconutty taste that was outta this world!!! 


They were kind enough to offer our readers the promo code FRIENDS to receive $1 off each jar ordered online!!!!

Gardein Review

Gardein sent us some coupons to try some new products and review! Here's some info from their website:

Our Review:

We were INCREDIBLY pleased with how tasty these entrees were! Some of the vegetarian "chicken" or "meat" that we are sent to review is not really enjoyed too well by Jared. THESE, on the other hand, were an EXCEPTION! Jared enjoyed them all and said, "Are you sure these are really vegetarian chicken patties?" We baked the Zesty Marinara and Chipotle Lime Chick'n and Sauteed the Mandarin Orange  and they were fabulous! 

Please check out their website and decide which tasty entree you would like to try!

Big Slice Apples Review and GIVEAWAY

Big Slice Apples sent us some of their apples to review AND have a giveaway! 
Here's some info from their website:
The History
Big Slice Apples were first cooked in Grandma Hoerner’s farm kitchen, made from apples straight from the orchard in the late 1800s. Her grandson, Duane McCoy, inherited his grandmother’s recipe. Recalling the wonderful flavor from his youth, he worked hard to replicate her recipe, finding the perfect blend of firm apples and sweet fruit-juice sweetened sauce. From that first all natural recipe, more fantastic flavors have been developed, sixteen in all.

Dive your fork into real fruit.
Each pouch contains ready to eat cooked apples and wholesome ingredients. They are available in 16 amazing flavors and are naturally gluten free.
  • Made with real fruit
  • Delicious & refreshing
  • Non-GMO*
  • Ready to eat & go
  • Naturally gluten free
Our Review:
WOW! We were BLOWN AWAY by how incredibly delicious these apples tasted! Every single one of the flavors tasted like a rich indulgence, but they are ALL-NATURAL and HEALTHY! We ate them straight out of the bag, and got creative and used them in our oatmeal bakes as well. Talk about delicious! If we had to pick a favorite, it would be the Cherry Vanilla, because we seriously thought we were eating PIE FILLING it was sooooooo good!

We KNOW you will love these just as much as we did, and it's your lucky day, because they want to send one of our readers some to try too! 
All you need to do is fill out the rafflecopter below! EASY!

Spotlight on My Awesome Hubby!

 I am SO PROUD of the godly man that is my husband, Jared. He is such a great man of God. I am so blessed to have him as my husband. Not only is he playing golf because he enjoys it and is talented, he is playing so he can use his platform to glorify GOD and show others God's love!

Check out his interview on our local news channel:

I am SO proud of Jared off the course as well. This man is the most SELFLESS, KIND, and GRACIOUS human being. I am so grateful for him because he shows me grace when I make mistakes. He ALWAYS puts my needs first and does a WONDERFUL job taking care of me. I don't deserve a man like him, but am so grateful that God has given Him to me. 

This man has made me feel STRONG and CONFIDENT about myself after YEARS AND YEARS of struggling with my body image. I cannot begin to express all the things that he has done to help me.  He has taught me how to fuel my body properly so I can be strong and fit! I am so incredibly thankful for his words of advice. 

When he has to travel for practice and tournaments, he does HIS BEST to make sure that we can communicate as much as possible. He has given up time with his friends to FaceTime with me when I'm at home by myself. He makes sure that I am okay at home. I am so thankful for the quality time he gives me when he is away. It's not easy being long distance, but he is doing a great job of making it be the best experience that it can be! 

Most importantly, Jared encourages me and challenges me in my walk with Christ. We discuss our daily devotionals and read the Bible together. He prays for me every single day. He helps explain the historical parts of the Bible that I don't understand as easily. He is such a great example and my role model! 

And... to top it all off... I think he is the CUTEST, MOST HANDSOME, HOTT, and SEXY MAN in the whole wide world!!!
My favorite pic of him! :)

     Our Review
     WOW! We loved these! We don't like to eat chips too often because of all of the bad ingredients, but these were totally healthy and wonderfully tasty! 

    Our favorite flavors to eat without anything added were the Pico de Gallo and Nacho flavors. We also enjoyed eating the UnSalted, Sea Salt, and Salt & Pepper dipped in hummus! 

    The texture of the chips was really great! They were crunchy and full of flavor. They filled us up more than regular chips because of the fiber. :)
