I am always one to try out a new product. Particularly when it is something that will improve my health and wellness.
Recently I was sent (thank you Sweat Pink/Fit Approach!) a beautiful gift basket with the following items – Amazing Grass Protein Superfood in Chocolate Peanut Butter, Amazing Grass Mason Jar with glass straw, Prana Yoga Towel, and an Amazing Grass reusable tote bag. When I found out I was selected for the Amazing Grass Campaign I was pretty excited. When it arrived and included more than just the protein I was so surprised. I have a huge stash of mason jars and love using them for my smoothies and other food related storage.

I am all about smoothies and of course anything that contains avocado so why not create something different for breakfast?!
What is a Tone It Up girl to do when their website is down because of Bikini Series excitement? Use her WOSS suspension trainer of course! I don’t use this thing enough and I really should. It only requires me to walk over to the bedroom door and close it. I pick the moves I want to do and how many reps I want and get going. I completed this workout and then went for a nice run in the rain! Continue reading
I can say for certain that I was not always a fan of quinoa. When I first tried it I could barely stomach it. I looked around trying to figure out ways to make it taste better. I looked for ways that I could not eat it. Maybe find something else that was as good of a selection. I found cooking it with a broth made it taste better but rarely do that anymore. I did not find much that was healthier so that option was down the drain. Continue reading
