Neocell Joint Supplements

Jared has a little soreness in his hips and knees due to his profession. He was happy to try these supplements and write a review.

Neocell sent us these products in exchange for an honest review on the blog. We were not compensated monetarily for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 

First, here's some info about these products from their website:
Move Matrix provides scientifically advanced ingredients that work synergistically in the body to promote healthy joints. This premium formula supports joint flexibility and range of motion. Collagen Type 2 is the key structural protein of joint cartilage. This premium formula combines BioActive NeoCell CollagenTM Type 2, Turmeric, Hyaluronic Acid, and a sophisticated blend of joint targeted ingredients to support flexibility, lubrication, and healthy inflammatory response.*

NeoCell Join Bursts combine Collagen Type 2, Turmeric, and Hyaluronic Acid in a soft chew that is bursting with juicy tropical fruit flavor for targeted joint support. * 

The Neocell joint supplements are great.  I'm halfway through the bottle and I can feel the affects already.  My joints aren't as sore after my round of golf and they feel better during the round also. I was recommended by my chiropractor to take a supplement like this and I'm glad he did.  They work great and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for better joint health short term and long term.

P.S. The Join Bursts taste like Starburst candy! DELICIOUS!

First, here's some info from their website

Good For You Junk Food Snacks and Nuts

We are committed to providing our customers with the best low sugar added nut snacks that only use ingredients found in nature and that improve the health of your body while satisfying your hunger. There's a reason our snack foods are sweeping the country - we give people excellent nutrition with unbelievable junk food taste.

WOAH. There's no other way to describe these nut butters! The Blueberry Cinnamon Bun took my overnight yogurt bowl from okay to LEGENDARY. (I think their name for the company is spot on!) 

The Pecan Pie was incredible on top of my protein waffles. They nailed it when they said they have junk food taste without the junk. These nut butters are insanely delicious and feel like you're eating icing! 

The flavored almonds were tasty too! I thought the Ranch had a subtle hint of my childhood favorite, Cooler Ranch Doritos! I felt much better eating the ranch almonds instead of junky chips! The Cheddar Bacon was good as well. They were perfect snacks for watching tv.

New (To Us) Companies That We Are Loving Right Now

 We are very fortunate to be able to try lots of amazing products for free in order to host reviews on this blog. Today, we are sharing a TON of new (to us) companies that we think you'll love as well! 

We were not compensated monetarily by any of these companies, just sent free product. All opinions are our own. 

First up, we have some incredible on-the-go, or in Jared's case, perfect snacks for the golf course!

This jerky was delicious! There were many flavors to choose! My personal favorite was the honey barbecue. I took it to the beach with me and it was SO SO SO GOOD. Jared's favorite was the Original, he said it was a nice change of pace from your typical jerky!   

You can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter 

These bars were tasty. The apple flavor tasted like apple pie! The chocolate ones did melt a little in Jared's golf bag, but that's typical of any bar that has chocolate in it. They are similar in texture to a Larabar. Thumbs up from the Wolfepack!

As always, Fit Snack delivers amazing healthy products right to our door. This month, our favorite product was the Action Whey protein bar. It was very chewy and reminded me of taffy, so I felt like I was eating candy. Jared couldn't believe I saved the last bite for him to try it, haha ;) He agreed that it was great! There are always so many healthy snacks inside each box. Sign up with this link and save on your first box! 

Now onto some new easy meals...

As much as we love oatmeal, we never thought to use it as part of a meal! We thought these meals and sides were great. The oats had a great texture along with the delicious flavors in each meal and side. My favorite was the Unstuffed Pepper. I thought it was a clever name and the flavors were incredible! Jared covered the curry because he is a fan of spices! These meals inspired me to try and create some recipes with oats!

80Fresh is founded on the commonly held belief that 80% of success in reaching fitness and health goals is determined by eating habits. We’ll take care of the 80, with pre-portioned, pre-prepped, chef-designed meals that deliver the nutrition you need with the taste and comfort you crave. You’ll enjoy the “Fresh” that comes with our delicious meals - combining the contrasting demands of taste, nutrition, ease, and freshness. 

80 Fresh was kind enough to send 2 portions of Southwest Chili and Shepherd's Pie. I invited Laura over for a girl's night to catch up and try the chili. It was a hit! The chili was a little spicy, but not over the top. We thought it was flavorful and definitely easy to cook. All we had to do was heat it on the stove.  
The Shepherd's Pie stole the show though. It was incredibly tasty and filling and simply delicious. I want to recreate this meal at home for Jared sometime! I think he would love it too. It was nice that it wasn't loaded down with a heavy crust. The top layer was mashed cauliflower! This was also super easy to cook. It came with a tin that fit the fillings perfectly and baked for 20 minutes. So cool! 

And lastly, a new skin care product...

The Nitrosomonas in the AO+ Mist work by consuming the irritating compounds produced by your skin (like ammonia and urea in sweat), and in turn producing beneficial byproducts. Specifically, Nitrosomonas produce Nitrite and Nitric Oxide. Nitrite tames the bad bacteria and promotes the good bacteria on the skin. Nitric Oxide is a key antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. These two byproducts together do a great deal to help promote healthy skin overall.
I used the shampoo, cleanser, and mist for about a month. While I didn't see any super dramatic changes, I did notice that my skin wasn't as dry as usual. I'll have to check with Jared and see if I stink less haha. If you are looking for a completely different approach to skin care, this is definitely a product for you!

Our Golf Life is Hard, but God Helps us Persevere!

Today, I am going to pour out my heart. 

Oh, where do I begin? Golf is hard. Golf is fun. Golf is a rollercoaster.  

A few months ago, Jared played in his first Web.Com Tour event of the season. He made the cut and we were thrilled! Then, he had a rough weekend and finished close to last. A few weeks later, he Monday qualified into the New York tournament and not only made the cut, he finished around the middle of the pack. He's making so much progress! 

Then, fast forward a few weeks and we are to the point we are today. He didn't make it through the past two Monday qualifiers. As Jared's wife, it absolutely BREAKS MY HEART to see him disappointed in himself. 

My husband is the HARDEST working man out there and he puts his heart and soul into grinding every single day. I want more than anything for him to make it to the PGA Tour one day. If you know Jared and I at all, this has nothing to do with money, it's all about the dream and calling God has placed on our life. That's why we are NOT discouraged by these couple of setbacks. We fully believe and trust that God's plan is THE BEST plan and we are so blessed to enjoy this amazing life that He has given us, that we don't have time to complain and be negative. We choose to focus on the positive in every situation. We know that God is teaching us something new EVERY SINGLE DAY. Even when the world thinks that we are struggling, we know that we are THRIVING because we have God as our comfort and strength! With every bad golf round, God is molding us into an even better version of ourselves and helping us become an even stronger couple. 

This devotional book is something we read together every single night. A lot of the time, Jared has to read it from a picture that I send to him because he is on the road. It's amazing how every single night, God tells us EXACTLY what we need to hear for that day. 

I can't tell you how many texts we receive after a missed qualifier that say how sorry they are because we didn't make it in. Please DON'T feel sorry for us because we have had a couple of missed tournament opportunities. Instead, please pray that we will make the most of the journey that God has given us and support one another in love. Please pray that we will fully hear what God is trying to teach us through each setback. 

I wish I could list all of the incredible blessings that we receive, but that would take up the entire space on the internet. I'll mention a few on this post just to prove that God is REAL and HE is the reason that we are doing what we are doing. 

First of all, our jobs are amazing. I am so blessed to be able to spend time with this HILARIOUS kid. I have so many funny stories to tell Jared at the end of each day. One day, Jared was practicing at Sawgrass which is near the library with a pond to feed the fish and turtles. Jared came over for a break and totally surprised Christopher. He jumped out of his seat in the car and did a happy dance the moment he saw Jared! This simple gesture brought Christopher so much joy and it just melted my heart. He only stayed for about 20 minutes because he had to keep practicing, but for that 20 minutes, Christopher was the happiest kid in the world. The fact that we can squeeze in a FEW extra minutes of time together when Jared is home is another huge blessing! 

My job covers our monthly expenses and even allows room for a few fun grocery purchases or surprises now and then. God has covered ALL of our needs and a lot of our wants too. We stick to our budget and when we can do a little something extra, we appreciate it so much more! 

We are also extremely grateful for our amazing families. We have the best of the best! They always spoil us when they come to visit and Jared's dad has been caddying for him to help save money. We cannot thank both sides enough for their love and support! 

Jared's job allows him to travel all over the country and experience so many cool things. He has met so many people and shown God's love everywhere he goes. A lot of people notice the scripture on his yardage book cover and that is one way for him to talk to people about Jesus. 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgment." I am so proud of my husband for being a light everywhere he goes. 

My prayer is that you all would know and believe that God loves you and wants to be the Lord of your life too! God is the best thing in our lives and we couldn't do this without Him! 

Lastly, we hit our 3 year mark of being Mr. and Mrs. Wolfe this past Monday! Cheers for 3 years!

This Granola is Nuts Review



I really enjoyed this granola. It had a great taste! 
I used this granola in three different ways. I first tried it in a smoothie. It blended really well and I could taste the difference it gave to the smoothie. The second way I tried it, which was my favorite, was to mix it in a bowl with yogurt. My wife gave me this idea when we started dating and it's one of my favorite ways to eat granola. I really liked the flavor and texture it added to the yogurt. The third way was straight from the bag. I also really liked the raw taste of the granola. I recommend this to anyone looking for a snack, an addition to smoothies, or an add on to any snack!

Check out their website, Twitter, and Instagram for more info! 

This granola was sent to us free of charge in exchange for an honest review. We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own.
