Friday Faves 4/14/17

It's time for another round up of Friday Faves! 

Jared is the coffee lover in our house and he said these were AWESOME. They are already made, so you can just grab them and head out the door. He enjoyed all of the unique flavors. He especially liked the Creamy Cappuccino with the extra protein! Here's a little info about High Brew Coffee from their website:
We never apply heat, but use filtered, ambient temperature water instead to brew our coffee. Cold-brew coffee has a smoother, bolder, less acidic and bitter flavor due to the absence of heat in brewing process. High Brew cold-brew coffee contains a higher amount of caffeine due to an optimal coffee bean, grind, ratio of coffee to water and brewing process. Cold-brew is not to be confused with iced coffee, which is hot brewed coffee that has been poured over ice. Learn more HERE.

If you're looking for some unique snacks, Soul Sprout is perfect for you! Jared really enjoyed the almond butter truffles and bites! They are coated in Cacao powder and are the perfect dessert/snack. Jared liked putting the almond butter bites on top of his oatmeal and smoothies! The Nut Bars were my favorite because the Sea Salt and Vinegar and Sweet & Salty didn't have any chocolate. They were definitely a unique flavor and I enjoyed eating something different than a typical bar. The best part about these snacks is the benefits of SPROUTS! Here's some info from their website:

Sprouting unlocks the nutrients in seeds, nuts and grains, so you can absorb them into your bloodstream more easily and more effectively. The more readily your body can release nutrients from food, the more efficiently it performs, the better you feel. You get more from your food, faster. That’s why we call it Accelerated  NutritionTM.

These bars have good ingredients, with a few indulgent bars like Bananas Foster which has Caramel Bits and Cinnamon Chips mixed in!!! We loved the variety of these bars! They are sweetened with brown rice syrup and provide some quick energy for our active lifestyle! Here's some more info from their website:

The all-natural ToYou Healthy Snack bar line, which sources the finest fruit and nut ingredients, provides a healthy snack bar option for the dietary needs of ‘on-the-go’ lifestyles. At ToYou, we boost the flavors of the nuts and fruit ingredients, with additions of coconut and yogurt, mint, or chocolate chips to create an irresistible snack. All of our bars are gluten free, and we even feature 5 vegan-friendly options!

These bites are perfect for those who don't have time to make their own energy bites. They are full of healthy fats from coconut butter and MCT oil. Our favorite flavor was Carrot Cake! Their website is still launching but you can follow them on Instagram and Facebook

Bilinski Sausage

 Bilinski's Chicken is meat you can feel good about. Our chickens are raised humanely, are free range, and spend much of their time outdoors. Our pasture-raised chickens spend more than half of their lives outside in an unfenced pasture, where they can forage and roam outdoors, coming into the barn at night. All the chickens we use are fed GMO-free and antibiotic-free feed. They grow at natural rates, allowing them to lead happy, healthy lifestyles. Healthy chickens offer better nutrients, as well as better taste!

We were so grateful to try Bilinski's! Everything we ate was DELICIOUS!!!! 

First up, I made a sweet breakfast casserole using the Maple Chicken Sausage Patties.

 Next, I used the Sun Dried Tomato Chicken sausage in this couscous casserole. It was a different way to enjoy the taste of pizza, but with couscous as the base! 

Lastly, I made this EPIC Mexican Breakfast Pizza using the Wild Mushroom Chicken Sausage for me, and the spicy Andouille for Jared. We loved it! 

More reasons you should try Bilinski's:
Food is a journey, not a destination. From the ground up, our simple ingredients are sourced, grown, and raised responsibly. We use only whole ingredients – no flavorings or pre-blended mixes here – and never use any artificial ingredients or preservatives. We believe you have the right to be informed and make smart food choices. That's why every single ingredient used is always fully listed on each package, so you always know exactly what you're getting. Bilinski's never compromises on flavor, and our products are minimally processed so our high quality ingredients truly shine through.

Bilinski's sausages have NO CASING – so there is no pork or lamb casing to remove!

They use only skinless chicken meat, which is lower in fat compared to other chicken sausages. 

Please visit their website and get some for yourself! You can also follow them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. 

Bilinski's was kind enough to send us chicken sausage to review. We were not compensated monetarily, just sent product. All opinions are our own.
