Feel Amazing Every Day

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.

Quinoa Crispies

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.
