Inexpensive Changes to Your Diet That Make a Difference

Wanting to improve your health is a great step towards making some serious changes in your life. Unfortunately, a great number of diets out there can be expensive and, worse, produce lackluster results. Most people end their diets early because the dramatic lifestyle changes required can be difficult to adhere to. This makes sense, as most people need to gradually change their habits in order for the changes to take hold. If you want to get yourself in better shape and eat right, you will do … [Read more...]

Lets Talk Nutrition – Is Your Family Reaching Their RDA ?

These days families are busier than ever. With most parents working full time and the kids school and sports events taking up most evenings and weekends we don't have time for home cooked meals anymore. Lately it seems we have been looking toward beverages to solve our problems. Getting our fruits and vegetables from juices versus the "real thing." Admittedly I don't put much thought into the containers of juice I pull off the shelves. As long it contains the words "100% juice" and "not from … [Read more...]

Looking for a natural way to lose the baby weight?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Delta Labs for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I remember after having Whistler, I *really* wanted to take a thermogenic to help lose pregnancy weight. But since I was breastfeeding, I had to be very careful about what I put into my body.  I knew that caffeine or stimulants were not a good idea, and after some searching, finally gave up because I couldn't find a product that I felt was safe to take. Well, the folks over at … [Read more...]

{Review & Giveaway} EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale (ends 2/16)

So how is everyone doing with those New Year's weight resolution goals?  When I decided to do my Frugal, Fit & Fabulous Reader Fit Challenge, I realized that I would probably need a bathroom scale to track my progress :) I had just thrown away my old one (which I hated because I had to tap a button about 6 times before it was ready for me to step on) and was super happy when EatSmart contacted me about reviewing their EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale.

American Cancer Society’s “New Year, Choose You” Giveaway! (ends 2/9)

To help us out, The American Cancer Society developed Choose You. This program helps women put … [Read more...]

Review & Giveaway: Metroelectro Water (ends 10/7)

Being a busy mom, it's easy to run around like a nut and even though you are making sure your children's every needs are met, your own basic necessities fall by the wayside.   I can't tell you how many times Ben has gotten home from work and I've realized that I hadn't had a single thing to eat or drink that entire day!  Not good!  The average adult should consume about 8 glasses of water a day, and this need can easily be forgotten - no matter who you are. I was recently introduced to a new … [Read more...]
