New Product Round Up #275

Today, we have a few new butters, bars, and snacks to share with you! We are grateful for the opportunity to review so many delicious and nutritious snacks. 

Talk about a protein win! These puffs are an easy way to get in a lot of extra protein to your day! We poured them in yogurt, smoothie bowls and oatmeal. They contain unflavored whey from pasture raised cows with no NO: SOY, GLUTEN, HORMONES, ACID, BLEACH, GMO'S!!!

We love these Whey Protein Puffs and we know you will too! Check out their website, FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for more info. 

This is the world's first SKINLESS popcorn!!! Here's some more info from their website:
We start with a kernel of corn and remove the skin using a very unique (secretive!) process. The skin is the annoying part that always ends up stuck in your teeth and that you end up trying to wrestle out with your tongue for the next 2 hours. Not fun!
Once the skin is removed, the kernel is then popped under high pressure. Not heat! Using high pressure locks in all the nutrients and maintains its flavor.
Most conventional popcorn is popped using heat, salt, oils and butter.
Not New Pop! No Oil, No Salt and No Butter used here!
After our skinless kernels have popped, we add a dash of raw organic cane sugar and a dusting of natural flavors to create our different flavor varieties.
             New Pop is Non-GMO, Vegan and Gluten-Free!
It took a little bit to get used to the different texture of this popcorn. Jared absolutely LOVED it and said it reminded him of corn pop cereal from when he was younger. So, we decided to put some in our smoothie bowls and it was a huge hit! It was the perfect little crunch without getting stuck in our teeth like regular popcorn! 

Check out their website,  Facebook, and Instagram for more info. 

We were surprised at how delicious these butters tasted without any added sugars! The only ingredient in the coconut butter was raw organic coconut butter and the only ingredient in the almond butter was organic raw sprouted almonds. INCREDIBLE! 

We enjoyed spreading both on our waffles, toast, and oatmeal. It's a great way to get in some extra healthy fats to your day! We also made a little jar with each butter mixed together so it made a coconut almond butter that was insanely good! YUM! 

Check out their website, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for more details and to see lots of other amazing snacks! 

These protein bars were very tasty! They were the perfect post workout fuel and pick me up because they have caffeine in them! Jared said the chocolate ones tasted like a straight up cookie and I thought the cinnamon bunz tasted extremely similar to a cinnamon bun, just in a different form. Super yummy and good ingredients! 

Check out their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see all they have going on and their other flavors! 

JUST LOOK AT THOSE FULL SIZE PRODUCTS IN THAT BOX!!! We were super pumped to find a full jar of Purely Inspired powdered peanut butter, beef jerky, tickle water, and more of our favorites like Smarty Pants vitamins and Kamut snacks! This box was LOADED with stuff! Please click this link to order yours today!

Top 10 Quick Exercises for Busy Entrepreneurs

 Today, I have a guest post from Sarah over at Start Blogging Online about some great exercises for busy entrepreneurs! Hope you enjoy. 

Whether you work from home or you go to your office daily, the truth of the matter is we are all busy.  These modern days have certainly evolved into becoming such a survival place for the fittest that to emerge as the winner, you got to keep busy.  The sad part is that we forget that we are able to work because of our health. 

Many busy people lose more than gain from their line of work once their health deteriorates.  You must never realize late that there are actually easy to follow exercises that you can implement even in your busiest routine.  You just have to motivate and program yourself to spend a few minutes, right where you are, to perform some physical activity and get that blood flowing.

To stay fit is not a walk in the park.  But you should also stop making excuses on why you cannot find the time to exercise.  Not having enough time to go to the gym or not having the right workout equipment should not be entertained as valid reasons.  Remember that it is your health that is being put at risk.

Short workout routines can do way more than what you think.  No matter how knocked off you may feel during your work day, there is always an equal opportunity to sneak in a few minutes or even an hour or two for your physical fitness.

Check out the compelling infographic below and be informed of the easiest >exercises you can do in the middle of your hustling schedule!

All the Snacks!!! (Giveaway)

It's time for another round up of some awesome products that we've been blessed to review lately! There's also a chance for you to win something at the end! 

Wewalka introduces another U.S. first with its sweet, layered Danish Dough. A versatile seamless sheet comprised of 36 folded layers of yeast dough, it is the perfect foundation for baking up croissants, sweet rolls, turnovers, and other delicious pastries. Whether you fill it, roll it, braid it or top it, Wewalka Danish Dough provides another European classic destined to be an American favorite.

Jared and I loved this dough! It was light and fluffy. It tasted incredible stuffed with savory and sweet flavors. The first thing we made was a pizza "hot pocket". They tasted so much better than the store bought brand that we grew up eating, and they didn't have any weird ingredients! YAY! 

I had my friend, Bridget, over for brunch one weekend and we made some fruit filled pastries, and I even made an egg and peanut butter filled roll. (As you know, I put peanut butter on almost everything) They were all delicious and the rolls by themselves without any filling are tasty as well.

Another great box from FitSnack! I loved the Shine Organics fruit and veggie pouch. I froze it a little bit and then added it to my smoothie and it was SO GOOD! A lot of people drink Kombucha and this box supplied a kit to make your own! There were lots of yummy snacks, check out this link to get 50% off your first box!! 

Keep your eye out on FitSnack's Instagram and Twitter for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that you won't want to miss! 

Jared and I were so pumped when we tried these because they taste amazingly delicious and they are packed full of protein! The Ranch is probably our favorite because they remind us of our childhood chip choice, Cooler Ranch Doritos, without anything bad! They are crunchy and packed full of flavor! 

I shared them with my church small group and they loved them as well!  

Another cool part about the cinnamon crunch is that it's a great smoothie topper. It tasted like cinnamon cereal and it was perfect for my pumpkin pie smoothie bowl. YUM!

Why popcorn? Many years ago, we were searching for a healthy side dish to serve our restaurant patrons. We popped up a few batches of our family’s favorite popcorn and customers enjoyed it so much, they started asking for bags of the popcorn to take home. Sales took off, and the rest is history. Today, Little Lad’s pops thousands of pounds of corn kernels a week…that’s a lot of corn. If you haven’t already, we invite you to try Little Lad’s Herbal Corn or any other Little Lad’s flavored popcorn, for that matter.
I declare myself THE popcorn-o-holic! I absolutely LOVE popcorn, and this popcorn exceeded my expectations! It has nutritional yeast added to it and with that comes vitamins, amino acids, minerals and protein. I wish everyone could taste this popcorn RIGHT NOW! It's THAT good! 

Little Lad's also sent us some almond butter, along with some herb crackers, that were just perfect! I told Jared that the crackers were way better than the EarthFare whole wheat crackers. That says a lot, because I really like those! I don't know how they do it, but the almond butter was just oven roasted washed almonds and sea salt, but we both agreed that it was some of the best almond butter we've tasted. 

See the latest news from Little Lad's on their Facebook page. 

This stuff is the perfect blend of coconut butter and nut butter all in one jar! It tastes incredible by the spoonful, but it also makes your every day food taste like dessert! It is full of healthy fats and only has a couple ingredients. We were blown away by the incredible taste. 

It went on top of our eggs, on toast, eaten by the spoonful, and also into this super easy 3 ingredient lunch: 

All I did was sauté shredded chicken with cauliflower rice and a heaping spoonful of the creamy cashew butter. HOLY MOLY IT WAS GOOD! 

You've gotta check out their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for all kinds of recipes and tasty ways to eat this jar of goodness! 

I have a new recipe to share, that I like to call VACATION MUFFINS because the flavors remind me of vacation!

1/2 cup coconut flour
2 very ripe bananas 
3 extra large eggs
3 tbsp honey
3 drops liquid stevia
sprinkle of cinnamon and baking powder 

Pour all ingredients into a food processor and mix for about 3 minutes. Then, bake at 370*F for about 20 minutes or until you can poke them with a fork and not have any batter stick to the fork. Enjoy! 

Purely Inspired is providing us with protein in exchange for recipes each month. We are not compensated for these posts, just sent product. 

Inspired by his mother's tasty cookies, MAXINE'S HEAVENLY COOKIES founder Tim Miller wasn't willing to sacrifice the delicious taste he remembered as a kid on his quest to turn her recipe into a healthier, guilt-free vegan treat! 
We know that vegan and gluten free don't always mean healthy and that's why we put a lot of work into selecting only the highest quality, healthy ingredients that make you smile, without weighing you down.  Loaded with tasty gluten-free oats, nutrient-rich rice & oat flours, and coconut sugar to keep the glycemic index low—we've brought the latest health trends together into one delectable treat. 

OH. MY. GOSH. These cookies are disappearing rather quickly around here. We cannot get enough of them. We have eaten these for dessert almost every night and sometimes even eat them with breakfast because they are loaded with oats and flaxseeds that are GOOD for your body. Do yourself a favor and go try these asap. 

Check out their Facebook and Twitter for updates on these awesome cookies!

Now, for your chance to WIN some of these cookies, all you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
