Monday Night: SHOPPPPPPPPING!!! I got all that stuff in the picture! I racked up!
Bearded Brothers is an organic snackfood company, located in beautiful Austin Texas. Most of our handmade energy bars are 100% organic, mostly raw, gluten free, vegan friendly and amazingly delicious. Just try them, we guarantee you will be back for more.********************************************************
I reviewed the Bodacious Blueberry Vanilla, while Jared reviewed the Mighty Maca Chocolate.
The only thing that kept it from being a 10/10 was the smell. When I opened package, it smelled a bit funky. But the taste quickly erased that. The taste was awesome! It wasn't like any other energy bar I've ever tasted. It's consistency was a mix between a cliff bar and a powerbar. Which makes a great combo. And the package is resealable, interesting, but very cool.
Big thanks to Jared for being my guest reviewer.
Bearded Bros has been kind enough to offer a 15% discount to my readers! The offer is good through April 13. The coupon code is "fanatic007"

Cookiehead was ahead of its time with the introduction of its whole grain cookies. Five yummy flavors come in two sizes — twelve half-ounce cookies packed in family-style clamshells, and individually-wrapped 1.75 oz. cookies sold in self-merchandising display trays. Whether snacking with your friends or taking a cookie on the road, Cookiehead has you covered. Formulated with rolled oats and whole wheat flour, these cookies deliver a healthy portion of much-needed whole grains to your daily diet, making them a healthy snack alternative. An innovative twist to traditional oatmeal cookies, these healthy snacks are a great source of fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Cookiehead's five delicious flavors include Dark Chocolate Chunk cookies, Cranberry Orange Walnut cookies, Honey Maple Walnut cookies, Coffee Chocolate Almond cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate cookies.
Now, onto the review!!!
Wild Blueberry Wakey Cakes: 9/10! These mini blueberry muffins were great! They were moist and full of flavor! I just wish they were a little bigger. I had to eat a few at a time ;)
Honey Maple Walnut: 10/10! MMM. This cookie was DE.LIC.IOUS. The flavor was super tasty! It was definitely my favorite and my roommate ate a few! We both gave them two thumbs up!
I love that these cookies have fiber, protein, and Omega 3's in them! If you are in the mood for a cookie, these not only taste good, but have good stuff for you inside them!
That's a win-win in my book!

Had to do 7 things, because, well, I'm obsessed with the number 7.
But you knew that...
It is made with a round loaf of Italian bread, split and layered with sliced Provolone cheese, salami, and ham, topped with 'olive salad' - chopped green olives, pimientos, celery, garlic, capers, oregano, parsley, olive oil and red wine vinegar.
(We had the option of adding the olive salad, which I opted out of, because I don't like olives, but this was THE BOMB!)
FYI...you HAVE to try these! OMG. NEW. FAVORITE. FLAVOR.
Sweet and Salty with peanut butter chips on top and chunks of pretzel mixed throughout.
6. I had my first evaluation from my University Supervisor for my 2nd placement of Student Teaching. She gave me a really good score and she was SO HELPFUL with giving me constructive criticism and tips/hints to improve! :)
7. I went on THE BEST DATE of my life last night! Looking forward to see what God has in store for us!
TALK TO ME...

Rise was created to fill a real need—to give people very specific bars, with different formulations, for various times of day. After all, your body needs a different sort of fuel first thing in the morning than it needs mid-afternoon. And your workout demands something else all-together. So give your body what it needs, whenever it needs it. With Rise.
We’ve been making simple, delicious, super-healthy nutrition bars under the names Boomi Bar and Prana Bar for more than a decade. Rise Bars feature the same formulas and commitment to unwavering quality under one name—we hope you like our new look.
Why eat RiseBar???
Every Rise bar is at least all-natural—that means no preservatives, non-GMO and non-sulfured fruit. We believe food can be tasty and healthy. And after more than a decade of making nutrition bars, we know that isn't a new idea. Our bars are proof—leading a gluten-free life can be very satisfying.
Now, for my review!
WOW. These bars were GREAT. There were 3 different types. Energy, Breakfast, and Protein.
My favorite was definitely the Almond Honey Protein Bar! 10/10! The texture was soft and chewy and the flavor was off the chain delicious!!! It kept me full with the 20grams of protein!
Next, I liked the Energy Bars. These had really chewy texture. The order of my favorite flavors were as follows:
Cherry Almond, Raspberry Pomegranate, Blueberry Coconut, Coconut Acai, and Apricot Goji.
The Breakfast Bars were wonderful as well. Some of them had sesame seeds in them and for some reason those just don't sit well with me when they are mixed in bars, so I didn't like those flavors as much. But, I will say that the Crunchy Cranberry Apple was such a sweet flavor! YUM YUM!!
Please visit their website and give them a try!
