I consider myself to be a protein bar aficionado. I do tend to eat a lot of protein bars in lieu of meals during the day to sustain my hunger and keep my energy going for my everyday tasks. I’ve had Clif Bars in the past and always enjoyed them especially the Luna Chocolate Peppermint Stick,which is my all-time favorite. These are so good as an afternoon pick me up and they taste just like rich hot chocolate with peppermint candies crushed inside. More importantly, they offer this great taste combination with 25% less sugar and 8g of protein.
Recently, my family and I had the opportunity to take a mid-week getaway to the Monterey Peninsula for my husband’s 39th birthday and to kick off the summer vacation for our six-year old. It had been a few months since the last time we got out of town, and our first time to go to the Monterey peninsula, so we were excited to visit the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Mornings can be so hectic, especially if you have kids. Some days, it may feel like a struggle just to get everyone out the door on time. On days like those, squeezing in a morning workout might be the last thing on your mind. However, a morning workout can give you an extra energy boost and help you have a more productive day.
Breakfast used to be the most neglected meal of the day in my household. Our mornings are usually a tad on the chaotic side; rushing to get ready and be out the door. But, there is no shortage of evidence that proves that a healthy breakfast can speed up metabolism and give you essential energy needed to power through your day.
Every weekday morning, I wake up extra early just so I have time to snooze, eat a quick breakfast and do my makeup! I like having my quiet time while getting ready! I am always looking to save time in the morning so I have more time to prepare myself for a long work day!
As part of a healthy lifestyle, I should be taking vitamins to help supplement. However, the last time I recall taking a multi-vitamin was at least 5 years ago. I bought a store brand multi-vitamin and I remember it made me feel nauseous! I stopped taking it after only a few days. What a waste of money! That is why I prefer natural vitamins. I received Realfood Organics Prenatal and Women’s Daily Nutrition vitamins to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

I love cereal. Besides for breakfast, I can easily have a bowl of cereal for a quick snack before lunch or dinner or for an after dinner snack. When I was offered the opportunity to try Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends, I quickly signed up and crossed my fingers that I would be chosen!
I love Greek yogurt and it is the only type of yogurt I will eat. Even my son (who is super picky) prefers Greek yogurt. Chobani Greek Yogurt sent me an awesome variety of their flavors of yogurt to try! Chobani Greek Yogurt offers a wide variety, some of which are unique, especially when you think of yogurt.
