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.
Summer is here. The sun is out. The temperatures are hot! That means you should hydrate! Drink water throughout the day. This summer, we decided to go on vacation to Disney World. It’s been about 4 or 5 years since we’ve been to Disney World, let alone vacation! It was time for a break!
How many times have you tried to lose weight, only to be knocked down by the thought of being hungry? I am a plus size mama that loves food but I have never been one that eats a lot. I do, however, have a bad habit of eating a lot of junk food that is not good for me.
So when a protein shake came to my attention I just knew that I needed to try it out and start thinking about taking care of my body better. I want to lose weight and I think this is a good start for me. Vega Shake It is a vegan, plant-based protein product that helps reduce your calorie intake while still feeling full.

I used to make healthy protein shakes but due to budget, I started making smoothies instead. I enjoy a smoothie at least once a day. Over the years, I have used several blenders. First, I used one that my mom gave me and when that broke down, my husband bought me a new one. I also acquired one through blog. Blenders vary in their blending results. Unfortunately, I have experienced uneven smoothies, too thick smoothies and unblended fruit at the bottom.
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.
It’s been over a year since I first started 21 Day Fix. I bought it when it first came out and made it through one round. I had tried it again a few times after that but could never finish the program due to working, life, family, etc. Don’t get me wrong, my body hurt through it but I felt so strong and happy. The workouts were perfect for me at the time because they are only 30 minutes long. It was great since I was working full time at the time. Now that I am a stay at home mom again, I wanted to give this program a try again.
I enjoy making smoothies and healthy protein shakes. I used to do cardio workout programs and always made a protein shake afterwards because my body felt so exhausted and drained. As a vegetarian, I do not always get protein from the food I eat, so I rely on supplements. Due to health reasons and a bad injury, I had to put my workouts on hold. For the last few months, I have been walking and jogging on my treadmill, pilates and yoga.
As the summer months are approaching, there is no better time to fill up on Palmer’s eventone sun care, moisturizing body lotion, and coconut oil deep conditioning protein packs!
