Shaklee Review

Image
Our friend, Laura Rousey, sent us some Shaklee products to try out and review.  
We loved the taste of the Meal Replacement protein powders. We aren't trying to lose weight, so we used them for POST-WORKOUT protein fuel and a treat! They weren't chalky and they tasted yummy! I surprised Jared with some Peanut Butter Protein Rice Krispies and used the vanilla protein in them. He said, "These are the best rice krispies I've ever had!" (Talk about a nice compliment! I was super excited that he loved them so much!!!)

We enjoyed the Blueberry and Almond Crisp bars as a snack on our way to a practice round. They were tasty and kept us full!  On Saturday, I went to the gym and ate an energy chew before my workout. I felt AWESOME during the workout and had tons of energy without feeling "jittery" like some energy products make you feel. Jared enjoyed the sports performance drink during his workouts. (It is a healthier version of gatorade) 
They also have an e…

Sexy Pop Banana Review

Image
We reviewed SexyPop earlier this year. You can check out our first review HERE. They recently came out with a new flavor, BODACIOUS BANANA! 
This was quite a unique flavor for popcorn! It took a minute for our taste buds to adjust, but we enjoyed it after we got used to it! It also had some cinnamon sprinkled throughout, so it was more dessert-y. (Yes, that's a new word! haha) 
Please try some for yourself and let us know what you think!

The kids loved the taste of the juice bars! The only thing we didn't like was that they were not very kid-friendly. The packaging was not easy to handle in terms of "holding and eating" the juice bar. They had to put them into bowls and eat with a fork because they were so messy and spilled everywhere.  The…
