I Heart Keenwah

 I Heart Keenwah
The following foods were sent to us to review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 

Why Quinoa?

Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American ancient superfood known as the "mother of all grains" (although it’s technically a seed). It’s a complete source of protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids) - the same kind of protein found in meat and dairy. 
Quinoa is naturally gluten-free, low-glycemic, high in fiber, packed with vitamins and minerals, and has a high protein content - between 14-18%.
Our love for quinoa prompted us to start making I Heart Keenwah quinoa snacks. All of our snacks feature quinoa as the primary ingredient, and we work hard to turn more people onto quinoa. Welcome to the quinoa club!

 Our Thoughts:
We tried the Clusters and the Puffs. We absolutely LOVED the Puffs. They were cheesy and crunchy and tasted fabulous! We enjoyed them for a snack one night when we were at a hotel for a tournament. Jared loved the cacao clusters. He said they were crunchy and sweet! They have quite a few other flavors that you can check out HERE

Our Thoughts:
THESE BARS ARE INCREDIBLY TASTY! We loved them out at the golf course, we REALLY enjoyed them after putting them in the microwave for a few seconds, and if we were really being patient, we baked them in the oven for 10 minutes and they tasted like a warm cookie! We really liked that they were made with Quinoa, because they were different than most of the snack bars that we eat! THUMBS UP!

Muffin Else



 The following foods were sent to us to review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 

Here's some info about Muffin Else from their website:
Keeping a Paleo diet is a challenge. Even more when trying to make meal plans for a family and survive throughout the day without falling for the temptations that are all around. After trying everything on the market, Shira decided to give it a try and make her own special treat. During the process of trial and error she suddenly realized she just came up with a whole new type of Paleo treat!
And so MuffinElse was born.
After a year of eating a lot (!!) of Paleo muffins while perfecting the formula, MuffinElse was ready to be introduced to the world.
MuffinElse is a Texas-based family owned business with a mission - to enable people to indulge in a healthy way - by creating a healthy snack that you can prepare quickly yet without compromising on the quality of the ingredients.
MuffinElse paleo muffins are soy free, dairy free and grain free and it takes less than 2 minutes to prepare. 

Our Thoughts:
We thought these were the perfect snack or after dinner treat! They were yummy in flavor and didn't have a bunch of weird ingredients. All you have to do is add a little water to the mix in a cup or small bowl and put in the microwave for about 90 seconds! They taste great with almond or peanut butter on top!

Lighten Up Your Game Day Eats With LightLife!

The Superbowl is just a few days away, so today we wanted to share some Lightened Up Game Day Eats with LightLife!  

We were not compensated for this post, just sent coupons for free product. All opinions are our own.


1. Sausage Gyros!

 
All you have to do is heat up some LightLife Italian Smart Sausages on the skillet. Then, throw some red onions in the mix until they are a little brown on the edges. 

Lastly, throw the sausage and onions inside a gyro with some toppings of your choosing! 
Jared loves jalapenos and banana peppers on everything, so he added those with a little cheese and he was set!  

2. Sausage and Rice   

All we did was cook the sausage on a skillet until it was brown on the edges, and then tossed it into some brown rice with Jared's favorite additions: Jalapenos and Banana Peppers! EASY!

3. Mexican Dip

Find the recipe by clicking HERE. It's a crowd pleaser and super easy to make!

Fitsnack Box January 2016

FitSnack Box strikes again! Seeing these boxes at our doorstep is always the highlight of our day! This month, it was packed full of healthy green mixes and juices to get our bodies full of veggies and vitamins in a few sips! 

We used the GREENS mix for our homemade waffles (only used banana, oats, green mix and water) and the NutriBlade beverage for our smoothies. Yum!


Jared was especially excited for the new Hot Chocolate Clif Bar to take on the course! 

Our favorite part of the box had to be the Morning Sunshine Cookie, which unfortunately we don't have an up close picture for because we totally ate it too fast! It was gone before we remembered to take a pic! haha 

If you haven't tried FitSnack Box yet, we highly recommend it!! Remember, you can get 50% off your first box by clicking this link!
