Manna Organics Nut Butter & Sourdough Bread

Image
Manna Organics sent us some of their Coconut Cashew Butter and Sourdough Bread to review.  We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. I reviewed their sprouted bread five years ago (WOW! I can't believe I've been blessed to be reviewing all of these amazing products for that long! #GodisGood) Here is the link in case you missed it. 
I was super excited to try out this Coconut Cashew Butter. I mean, Cashews are my favorite nuts, so naturally cashew butter is my favorite of all the nut butters! When I noticed coconut was thrown into the mix, I knew it was going to be epic!
It definitely did NOT disappoint. This cashew butter tasted like candy!!! Jared and I both enjoyed eating it straight from the jar, on our baked oatmeal, toast, and mixed into our cereal and yogurt bowls!  
The best part was the extremely short list of INGREDIENTS: Cashews*, Dried Coconut*, Evaporated Cane Juice Crystals*, Himalayan Pink Salt
* = Organic
That is a HUGE…

Image
Rocky Mountain Popcorn company sent us some popcorn to review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 

I am hands down the BIGGEST popcorn fan around! If you ask my friends what I eat the most, they will tell you popcorn immediately. I love all the unique flavors and traditional ones. To say I was excited when this box showed up at our door, would be a huge understatement!  
We loved ALL of the flavors!
Butter was a little salty, but still delicious. 

This was the Superfood Popcorn and it was very unique. I thought it tasted like pizza. Talk about a win! The Kettle Corn was straight up candy! It was super sweet and delicious, but I could only handle a little at a time.  This other unique flavor, Smoky Red Popcorn, was Jared's "favorite popcorn he's ever eaten". He loved the smoke taste on each kernel. He savored each bite like it was his last. haha 
They also have Caramel, White Cheddar, Jalepeno, Siracha, and Naked, …

Image
If you've read the blog for a while, you know how much we LOVE our FitSnack boxes! This month, we were BLOWN AWAY at the stash of goodies! Everything was FULL SIZE! There was so much awesomeness packed into the box.  This Fruit Snack made me feel like a kid again.

I Won Protein Chips

I Won Protein sent us their chips to review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.  The Protein Chips come in 5 flavors: Siracha, Ranch, Sea Salt, BBQ, and Cinnamon French Toast  They all contain 20g of protein, they're gluten free, and all-natural. 

We absolutely LOVED these chips! They were crunchy and thick, just perfect for dipping into guacamole, or making nachos!

Our favorite part about these chips was the fact that they were full of organic ingredients and didn't have weird stuff. 
Check out what's in the Sea Salt: ingredients: organic pea protein, organic potato flakes, organic rice flour, organic oat fiber, organic expeller pressed safflower oil and/or organic expeller sunflower oil & sea salt.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT LIST!?!?! 
The Cinnamon French Toast flavor was perfect as a dessert or a sweet snack. We dipped them in yogurt and it was soooo good!

The Life Of A Pro Golfer's Wife -As Told By Jared

Image
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I'm writing a long overdue guest post about my wife! Today I am going to give you an insight from my perspective the life of a pro golfers wife. (And maybe a few other things I just want to brag on her about)

First let me give you a small outline of my typical day when I am home and practicing. I usually get up and have Bible time and workout in the morning. I come home and eat some breakfast and then on to the course for my day of practice. That usually last anywhere from 4-8 hrs so I eat lunch while I'm at the course. I come home, eat dinner, do the dishes (sometimes), shower, watch tv, and sleep. My usual day on the road at a tournament is not too much different from being at home, I just replace going home with going to a hotel, and adding a little more free time in there with it.  That schedule seems pretty easy and simple and for the most part it is...thanks to Kelsey. 

There are so many things Kelsey does for me that makes what I do e…

I Heart Keenwah

I Heart Keenwah
The following foods were sent to us to review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.  Why Quinoa? Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American ancient superfood known as the "mother of all grains" (although it’s technically a seed). It’s a complete source of protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids) - the same kind of protein found in meat and dairy.  Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, low-glycemic, high in fiber, packed with vitamins and minerals, and has a high protein content - between 14-18%. Our love for quinoa prompted us to start making I Heart Keenwah quinoa snacks. All of our snacks feature quinoa as the primary ingredient, and we work hard to turn more people onto quinoa. Welcome to the quinoa club!
Our Thoughts: We tried the Clusters and the Puffs. We absolutely LOVED the Puffs. They were cheesy and crunchy and tasted fabulous! We enjoyed them for a snack one night when we were at a…

Keeping a Paleo diet is a challenge. Even more when trying to make meal plans for a family and survive throughout the day without falling for the temptations that are all around.

During the process of trial and error she suddenly realized she just came up with a whole new type of Paleo treat! And so MuffinElse was born. After a year of eating a lot (!!) of Paleo muffins while perfecting the formula, MuffinElse was ready to be introduced to the world. MuffinElse is a Texas-based family owned business with a mission - to enable people to indulge in a healthy way - by creating a healthy snack that you can prepare quickly yet without compromising on the quality of the ingredients.

The Superbowl is just a few days away, so today we wanted to share some Lightened Up Game Day Eats with LightLife!
We were not compensated for this post, just sent coupons for free product. All opinions are our own.

1. Sausage Gyros!
All you have to do is heat up some LightLife Italian Smart Sausages on the skillet. Then, throw some red onions in the mix until they are a little brown on the edges. 
Lastly, throw the sausage and onions inside a gyro with some toppings of your choosing!  Jared loves jalapenos and banana peppers on everything, so he added those with a little cheese and he was set!  
2. Sausage and Rice   
All we did was cook the sausage on a skillet until it was brown on the edges, and then tossed it into some brown rice with Jared's favorite additions: Jalapenos and Banana Peppers! EASY!

Fitsnack Box January 2016

Image
FitSnack Box strikes again! Seeing these boxes at our doorstep is always the highlight of our day! This month, it was packed full of healthy green mixes and juices to get our bodies full of veggies and vitamins in a few sips! 
We used the GREENS mix for our homemade waffles (only used banana, oats, green mix and water) and the NutriBlade beverage for our smoothies. Yum!

Jared was especially excited for the new Hot Chocolate Clif Bar to take on the course! 
Our favorite part of the box had to be the Morning Sunshine Cookie, which unfortunately we don't have an up close picture for because we totally ate it too fast! It was gone before we remembered to take a pic! haha 
If you haven't tried FitSnack Box yet, we highly recommend it!! Remember, you can get 50% off your first box by clicking this link!
