Recent Review Round Up

Today we wanted to share a round-up of our latest reviews from some awesome companies! We were blessed to receive these products. We were not compensated monetarily, just sent free samples. All opinions are our own.
Eat Enlightened WHAT ARE BROAD BEANS?  The best-kept secret in healthy snacking! Enjoyed around the world for their delicious flavor and satisfying crunch, broad beans are a nutrition powerhouse packed with protein and fiber. ENLIGHTENED CRISPS Are lightly roasted in sunflower oil, sprinkled with sea salt, and seasoned to perfection. So go ahead... spill the beans.
We cannot get enough of these delicious crisps! They are super tasty and we wouldn't have even known we were eating beans if you just sat them in front of us to try. They have a crunch like a cracker and the flavors are JUST RIGHT!  We were very impressed that they packed so much protein for feeling like we were "eating crackers" with our meals.

Wolfepack Wrap Up

It's been a while since we posted about our life, so today we will fill you in on the last few months. Jared fought hard this season with Web.Com Tour qualifiers, but ended up going back to Canada to play in the last few events. He did really well the first week and finished in the Top 15. The next two events were missed cuts, but Jared stayed positive and knew that he was fortunate to be able to get some kinks worked out before Q-School starts in October. He is working VERY hard to improve his mental game, along with having a positive attitude in any situation. It's carried over into our marriage as well and it has been incredible to see his mindset shift to being positive a majority of the time! 
Last month, we were extremely fortunate to be gifted a two night stay at the Amelia Island Plantation to celebrate our anniversary. My bosses are the most giving people we have ever met and we were SO GRATEFUL for that special weekend to step away from golf/work and just be US.

I ate all kinds of diet foods and prepackaged everything to ensure that I knew exactly how many calories I was consuming. I saved up one "fun" day every once in a while to let myself have dessert and ended up going hog wild because it was my only day I was "allowed" to eat junk food. I would get a huge stomach ache because I ate so much.
Then, God sent me my incredible husband to help me get over my obsessive behavior by RELAXING my strict rules, eat more, workout properly, and live a little! Shortly after I got married, I ate more food, but I still counted every single calorie until one day my husband said enough was enough. He told me to give him ONE MONTH of eating what he told me to and not looking at calories and I agreed. Did change happen overnight? Heck no! But, over time, I have completely changed the way I eat. Today, I don't look at any calories, b…
