A Yummy Way Of Smarter Snacking

Recently I was told by my trainer that I need to ‘Eat more’ not just big meals but 3 healthy meals with a couple nutritional snacks in between those meals. This got me thinking about ‘what are truly nutritional snacks other than fruit or vegetables?’

I love vegetables and fruits but snacking on them while out and about isn’t always the easiest thing to do! I came across Planetarians and I was amazed at what their label listed:

Key Ingredients: Sunflower meal, Potato Starch, Sunflower Oil, Seasoning. Never Fried / All Natural / Gluten Free / Soy Free / Lactose Free / Whole 30 approved. No artificial colors, flavors or ingredients. 

This was so much more than a chip or apple, with12 g PROTEIN per SERVING: more protein (28.7%) than in meat (26%)  and 11 g FIBER per SERVING! That’s 10x more than an apple for more crunch and guilt-free snacking!

I love their easy to go packaging, it’s easy to pack in my son’s lunches or in my purse or diaper bag while I am out so I don’t miss out on giving my body what it needs. I can’t use being ‘too busy’ as an excuse with Planetarians they make snacking smarter so easy.

With a variety of yummy flavors like BBQ, and Sour Cream and Onion I have no trouble getting my kids to eat Planetarians snacks!

Now I make sure I have a couple Planetarians snacks packed in my gym bag as my post work out snack and my kid’s lunches, I feel so relieved knowing I found something I don’t feel guilty eating or feeding my kids!

Join me and Planetarians snacks in making fiber a bigger part of our diets and snacks against obesity order yours today!

Creating A Cozy Space With Table Lamps

Light Details: Possini Euro Spacely 3-Light Globe Table Lamp

In all things pretty, good lighting is a must. I keep my blinds drawn up and curtains pulled back just to capture that outdoor light that is constantly changing.

You know that feeling when you walk into a room and the lighting is so perfect it makes you want to kick up your feet and cozy up with a good book?

A room with accent lighting, such as table lamps, can project an intimate, and flattering space. By creating diffused light in areas that don’t naturally get light, welcomes the warmth and creates a cozy vibe.

Light details: Drome Brushed Brass Space-Age Industrial Accent Table Lamp

There are a couple tips to remember when finding those perfect table lamp, Here are a few of my top tips:

  • Focus on those spots in your room farthest from windows to bring in light to areas that need it most
  • Keep in mind, when the sun goes down where you can use a lamp
  • Be sure the table lamp you choose provides the lightening you are looking for in your space
  • Don’t be afraid to add character with a uniquely shaped or looking lamp!

Light Details: Elijah Brass and White 11 1/2″ High Accent Table Lamp

Table lamps don’t have to be a stand-alone decor piece, I love checking spaces that incorporate lighting and their unique decor pieces to highlight their sense of style.

If you are looking for a wide selection of lightening LampsPlus is a great choice! They offer a variety of high quality, unique and affordable lighting for many different styles.

The Best Way To Stock Up On Essentials This Holiday Season

Now that November is here, that holiday mode kicks in and that super Mom power comes into play. From school events, sports, work and holiday gatherings there is so much going on in our lives and let’s be honest keeping up with things like groceries can be a daunting task.

You can imagine the excitement on my face when I heard about Boxed and how I can have our essentials in bulk shipped straight to our front door!

Boxed is an easy way to stay on top of keeping your everyday essentials stocked. Boxed offers wholesale prices, fast, free delivery, free samples, and with no membership fee, you’re looking at significant savings!

In comparison to Boxed competitors, I was saving an average of $3-$5 dollars per item ordering from Boxed. Here are a few examples of the savings: Bounty 12 Mega Rolls is $21.99 at Boxed compared to $35.80 at other big online retailers. This 3-pack of Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing is $9.99 at Boxed compared to $14.87, and Dawn Ultra Dishwashing Liquid 75 oz. is $7.99 versus $17.15. What cost me around $100 would have cost more if I shopped locally or ordered the same quantity elsewhere, and the fact that shopping Boxed saved me a trip to the store sealed the deal for this busy Mom!

To top it off each order includes a handwritten thank you note and a really cool creativity kit for my kids to enjoy, I really love how Boxed doesn’t just see me as an order number but as a human being!

Be sure to save yourself some time and money this holiday season and shop Boxed!

Our Family Trip To Florida

Let me start by saying Orlando, FL in October is perfect! We got a fresh breeze with the warmth of the sunshine and a little rain, It was perfect.

We had planned our trip to Orlando, FL to visit the Walt Disney parks, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. We were invited to stay at Encore Resort, which is unlike any other accommodation we have experienced. We got to stay in a gorgeous home with a private pool!

When we first arrived we were all greeted by Encore Resort’s super friendly staff at their really cool clubhouse not too far from our rental home. Even with my Mom and Nephew joining us, we had so much extra space in this house! Encore offers luxury homes that range from 4-13 bedrooms with a private pool.

Our home was decorated beautifully and there was plenty of space for the kids to be kids. We had a full kitchen which made it really nice and easy to store snacks and things for meals. If you didn’t feel like cooking, which admittedly we didn’t on this vacation. Encore offers food delivery service which comes right to your front door.

Our rooms were 1000 times better than any hotel room. We had the comfort of a king size bed and gorgeous furnishings. Each bathroom is stocked with towels and your basic toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. What I also loved about this home is that it came with a laundry room! It came in handy during our 5 days stay here with Encore at Reunion.

We had the opportunity to experience our own in-home private chefs! It was our first private chef experience, and the food was incredible. Our chefs were really friendly and catered well to our little picky eaters. We were treated to a yummy dish, Chicken Parm with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake for dessert!

The amenities at Encore Resort go beyond your average resort. They not only offer a big pool but an amazing water park for kids and adults!

You can spend the whole day enjoying all the neat aspects of the water park like these super awesome slides that we couldn’t get enough of!

They even have these really neat water features that the little ones can enjoy. The clubhouse also offers a cool arcade and kids club so the possibilities for fun are endless!

We relaxed poolside in a really neat cabana that offered mini fridge, TV and comfortable seating. Being able to enjoy their delicious menu poolside was a huge plus and one of our favorite aspects because the food was so good!

Our stay with Encore Resort at Reunion was memorable and the resort is only a few minutes from Walt Disney parks! They offer a shuttle service to the parks which makes the trip so much easier!

If you are ever planning a trip to Orlando for any of their parks and you want to stay in a somewhere with the comforts of home, Encore Resort at Reunion is the perfect place for you!
