I am lactose intolerant and am not a fan of Lactaid. I found the Smart Balance at the store and gave it a try. It is really good and almost tastes like real 2% milk. I love it! Plus it has less fat than 2%.
Wholly Salsa is absolutely delicious; it tastes like it was just made, much better than the jarred ones on the shelf. Tip: if you are like me and are a chips and salsa fan, try dipping baby carrots or carrot chips into this salsa instead! It helps my cravings plus I get extra veggies in!
These soaps are fantastic for sensitive skin, and a bargain!
Yes to Blueberries is a Age Refresh Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30. Sounds good in theory but it leaves a white film all over my face. This is more sunscreen than daily moisturizer in my book. I'll be using it in the car on my hands!!
I saw CocoMama Quinoa ready to eat cereal at Whole Foods and was excited to give it a try. I'm not a huge fan of Quinoa but the flavors, Cinnamon Banana and Wild Blueberry sounded sooo good. Tried it...not so much. The cereal is overly sweet and the sweetness does nothing to mask the bitterness of the Quinoa. If you like Quinoa then you may like this, but it's not for me.
To help drink more water, and get 5 g each pf protein and fiber, I mix 1 packet of K20 protein water mix in 24 oz of water and drink through out the morning at work. Then I mix another and drink it in the afternoon. The sweetness curbs my sweet tooth, keeps me from drinking soda, and keeps me hydrated :)
35 calories per slice! Taste-Great. They also have white bread, low carb, high fiber, Italian, English muffins. They have a web site if you want to check out the nutritionals. Just search for "Healthy Life Bread". I get mine at Kroger.
When I started Insanity, I felt that I need some extra supplementation to stay on track with those hard workouts. I tired the chocolate flavored Shakeology, and now I can't go a day without it. Its my treat, my energy, satisfaction and success
