Besides good looks and an amazing sense of humor, tummy problems run in my family. I’m always looking for foods and/or products that are good for my gut, so I can try them and share them with the whole Fam Damily. Enter today’s Try It!

The name of the product may look a little familiar; I’ve tried a Good Belly drink before. This one is a little bit different, and no just because of its size! This little liquid packs a punch! Inside are tons of little probiotics and vitamins! This small shot has your daily recommended amounts of: Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Biotin! Not only that but its got Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calcium, and Thiamin!

At 50 calories, the Plus Shot has you covered without being a calorie hog and its tasty, too! That’s something to smile about!

favorite are the nacho cheese https://www.questnutrition.com/collections/quest-chips/products/nacho-cheese-tortilla-style-protein-chips

Trying to eat healthy and lose weight can be such a drag sometimes. You can only eat kale and chia seeds for so long, am I right? And when you’re trying to up your protein intake but want something that’s NOT jerky? Ugh, fuggetaboutit. Thankfully, I found something yummy that will also help me hit my protein goals!

Oh yes, those are PROTEIN chips! Quest Nutrition actually has FIVE different flavors! I’ve tried three so far: cheddar & sour cream, BBQ, and nacho cheese! Just take a look at these stats:

I paired mine with a Chick-Fil-A Chicken Club sandwich (sans bun) and it was the PERFECT meal!

Out of the three flavors I have tried, the nacho cheese are my favorite, but that’s because they tasted fairly close to Doritos!

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!

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.

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.

IMG_8900

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!

I don’t know what mornings are like at y’all’s houses, but at the Huffman Homestead things can go from 0-crazy in a matter of seconds. Sometimes it’s hard to eat breakfast, let alone a healthy oneWhile I was grocery shopping the other day, I saw these on the shelves and I HAD to try them!Shopify-MFN_55g_FlavorVariety6pk-FRONT_1024x1024
First I tried the double chocolate one. All I had to do was pour in 1/4 cup water, mix, and microwave!

IMG_8758
I really liked the chocolate one! I ate it along with some egg whites and I was surprised at how full it kept me! I normally have to eat a snack in between breakfast and lunch but I didn’t have to this day because I was pretty satiated!
The next day I tried the s’mores one:

It wasn’t as good as the chocolate one. All of the yummy bits fell to the bottom so the muffin was pretty bland until you reached the sugar overload.
These muffins come in ten flavors, including: Lemon Poppyseed, Blueberry, Cinnamon Roll, Tart Cherry Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter, Maple Pumpkin, and Cinnamon Apple!
