How our family stays Heart Healthy!

Image
**This post is sponsored by Campbell Soup Company**
Today we want to share with you how our family stays Heart Healthy!  First of all, we are BIG TIME EATERS. Second, we are BIG TIME FITNESS BUFFS. With that being said, we balance the two by cooking and eating HEALTHY and natural meals that fuel our body properly.



We love to eat fresh fruits and veggies throughout the day. Our favorites include strawberries, bananas, watermelon, carrots, celery, broccoli and mushrooms. (Okay, mushrooms are just Kelsey's thing, Jared HATES them! haha) 
We LOVE to spend time together in the kitchen. It's kinda our thing. We enjoy using healthy ingredients to make amazingly tasty and nutritious meals! Our favorite dinner to cook is some version of chicken with roasted veggies on the side.  When we're apart, we take pictures of our food and send to the other so we can enjoy what they're having too.
For the fitness side of staying heart healthy, we are for…

Cocogo Review

Image
Cocogo sent us some drink mixes to review! Here's some info about the company: Cocogo is a new premium sports drink made with real fruit and coconut water in stick pack. It is the best tasting, best performance sports drink. It tastes better because it’s all-natural and isn’t overly sweet. Not only do people prefer the taste, they credit Cocogo for steady energy, no muscle cramps, being easy on the stomach, and preventing “the bonk.” And when you compare Cocogo to other sports drinks, you’ll see the proof: Cocogo offers the best balance of electrolytes, contains an ideal blend of sugars, and has seven essential vitamins. Here's info from their website: Dehydration is as much an issue for athletes as it is for average Janes and Joes. When your body loses water through sweat, digestion, and even breathing, you’re also losing key nutrients that help you function. Without proper hydration and electrolyte balance, you’ll experience very real effects:
Fatigue and less ener…

Eatrageous Chips Review

Image
Eatrageous sent us some chips to review! Here's some info from their website: Well seasoned entrepreneurs Andrew Gitlin and Gayle Sanders believe first and foremost in bringing innovation to everything they do. Andrew and Gayle founded Eatrageous because they hoped to redefine the way we think about snacks.

They wondered why chips had to be fried, baked, and flat—why we automatically associated guilt and grease with chips—why we could never get a full ounce of chips for 100 calories.

From there, they got busy creating a chip that would answer these questions and rattle the taste buds of snackers across the globe. The result is a snack chip that’s different in every way. No guilt, no grease. Just pure taste and crunch in 100 calories per full one ounce serving. 
Want the healthiest snack? Eat a carrot.

We’re first to admit we would all be better off eating more carrots, apples, and bananas. Across the snack spectru…
