Hey y’all! Sorry I was MIA last week—the fam and I trekked up to South Dakota to visit Mount Rushmore! I don’t know about y’all, but when I travel I don’t always make the best food choices, especially when it’s a road trip. Isn’t part of the fun of a road trip the stops for snacks (uh, hello Sour Patch Kids and Nutter Butters!) and tasty treats you can only find in Small Town, America? This time, however, I thought ahead!

This 12-ounce bottle is packed with good-for-your-tummy cultures, only 20 calories, and a mere 5 grams of sugar (all from fruit; aka, no added sugars)! I was a little worried I wouldn’t like the taste of it–I’m kind of a drink snob. But this was actually pretty dang good! I could really taste the basil in there but it wasn’t too overpowering. It was light and had a slight fizz and the orange/pineapple mixture gave it a real summertime feel! Plus, I did something great for my gut! Good Belly has a lot of probiotic-filled products, all geared to help your digestive system!I snagged this at Walmart Grocery Store, next to the kefir I wrote about a few weeks ago!

Last week, me, my parents, my sister, and my kiddos went on a road trip to Mount Rushmore. At first, I was worried that I would end the trip in a straight jacket.

this is bad

 

But, it actually turned out to be not that bad! Of course, there were some “I’m-going-to-pull-my-hair-out-if-you-two-don’t-stop-it” moments, but the good times far outweighed the bad and we really enjoyed ourselves!

I’m fully aware that family trips can be downright awful sometimes, so if you’re dreading a road trip coming up or you’ve just returned from one, here’s some funny to make you laugh to keep from crying!

Happy Tuesday, folks! I’ve tested some new products and I can’t wait to share them with you! Last time, I told you all about my new favorite yogurt found in a new refrigerated section of Walmart. I found one of today’s Try Its right next to it!

Naked is primarily known for its vast assortment of juices and drinks, but they recently launched a new line of fruit/veggie/nut bars! I tried the Red Machine!

This bar is packed full of vitamins and minerals! Its made from: almonds, apples, carrots, pistachios, cranberries, cherries, and spinach! They’re non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, and made without preservatives! This bar was pretty good! It was a tad chewy, but still really good!

 

The next item I tried is new from McCormick–the spice people! They have a new line of breakfast toppers–shakers full of crunchy goodness to add to yogurt, cereal, or oatmeal! I bought the Cocoa Banana and sprinkled it on my plain kefir!

The breakfast topper was DELISH! The plain kefir? Not so much. Definitely need fruit to add to that to make it palatable.

I’ve been in summer mode the past week–no major plans (sans the garage sale I had over the weekend; worst idea ever), no real schedule, and pretty much just doing whatever and hanging out with my tiny humans. That being said, my house has kind of been a pit lately.

I know that a lot of you have your kiddos home allllll day long now that school’s out and I’m sure your house will be pitted out soon as well. Which means we can ALL relate to this video from The Dad:

 

SO. TRUE.

Hey y’all! Sorry I was MIA last week. It was the last week of school at the Mother’s Day Out I where I work and it was IN-FREAKING-SANE. It was pretty much like there was a full moon, on the day before Christmas break, and it was every child’s birthday.

But now that we’re out of school, I’m officially on summer mode and I’m back to blogging, yo! And today I’ve got two tasty Try Its to help you stay satisfied and feeling good this summer!

 

I’ve been looking for something to have for dessert that isn’t ridiculously full of calories or bad-for-me stuff. I love Greek yogurt and so when I saw these at Walmart, I had to try them!

 

These little Greek yogurt bars (dipped in dark chocolate–swoon!) are only 140 calories, have 8 grams of protein, and are FULL of probiotics (i.e., they’re good for your gut)!

 

First, I tried the vanilla one:

It was pretty good! Its vanilla, so, it was a little plain. And you could really taste the “Greek yogurt tanginess” but it wasn’t bad!

 

Next, I tried the blueberry one:

BRUH. So. Flipping. Good. I devoured this one! It was delicious! I also tried the strawberry one and it was very tasty!

These bars actually come six different flavors, but there isn’t a store near me that sells the espresso, hazelnut, or honey flavors–whomp, whomp.

Hey y’all! Today I have two Try Its for you! One is so not healthy and the other is a great way to hit your macros and feel like you’re indulging when you’re really not!

 

Remember when Oreo had the mystery flavor and it was disgusting? Yeah, me too. Well they have officially redeemed themselves because they have a new special edition flavor out–kettle corn!

IMG_8833

I REALLY like this flavor! It truly tastes like kettle corn! I seriously couldn’t get enough of these and had to restrain myself from eating the whole package because they were THAT good! Kettle corn is just one of three flavors the cookie giant has released this spring! They also have piña colada and cherry cola!

 

While grocery shopping a week or so ago, I looked for something that would satisfy my sweet tooth but also had protein and not a lot of calories (I was trying to be good since I knew I was going to pig out for Mother’s Day weekend, lol). My search led me to this:

One package of Think Thin’s protein cakes touts 12 grams of protein and only 170 calories! I was ready to try these! The other day after the kiddos had gone to bed, I decided to dig in.

They were actually pretty good! They definitely had that “protein bar taste” but they did satisfy that craving for something sweet and helped me hit my protein goals for the day! They also come in chocolate cake and red velvet!
