Five Things Friday, Promo Code and Giveaway!

Woo hoo!  It’s Friday!  It’s been a great week and I’m giving you the run down of 5 great things that I am loving lately plus a discount code and giveaway!



I’ve always been a huge fan of KIND Bars and I often tell my clients about them!  First, they are easy to find in almost any grocery store!  They are often on sale too!  Last month I stocked on them at Jewel when they were 10 for $10.  Second they are so filling and make a great snack or addition to any meal!

Did you know KIND Bars has some new flavors.  The folks at KIND sent me their new flavors to try out and the Hubs has done a great job testing them out!  I got to try too!


Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt – a sweet and salty combination of pecans, almonds and peanuts covered in maple syrup with a touch of sea salt and provides 5g fiber, 6g protein with only 5g of sugar.

The sea salt gives it the perfect taste!  Delish!


Dark Chocolate Chili Almond – a sweet and spicy blend of mixed nuts drizzled in chocolate with a trio of cascabel, ancho and habanero chilies and provides 7g fiber, 6g protein with only 5g of sugar.

I was a little hesitant about the chili flavor but it was seriously yummy!!  Honestly I love all KIND bars!  I don’t discriminate!

Do you have a favorite flavor?

#2 Frozen Pomegranate Arils

This was a Costco score a couple of months ago and they have been amazing at night when I am craving something sweet and immediately after a hot sweaty run!!  These frozen little seeds a pack a powerful punch of nutrition and goodness and these will be a new staple for me at Costco!  Plus you don’t have to make a mess de-seeding the pomegranate!  SCORE!

I took this picture on Sunday after the Chicago Women’s 1/2 marathon!  What a beautiful city we live in!!  We don’t spend nearly enough time down here but summer days, nights and mornings too are just wonderful!

We’ve seen lots of rain here this week which has only made things more green.  My garden is doing beautifully too!  I love the city of Chicago!

Have a great weekend!

  1. KIND bars are the best! Can’t wait to try the new flavors. Yum! Right now I’m enjoying lots of pool time with my girls. We just joined a new aquatic center & love the kiddie zone with zero entry & mini slides.

    I’m curious about the Kind bars. I have tried Think Thin bars and tried two flavors and they were both nothing special! The Kind bar flavors sound much more intriguing.

    I don’t see how you are supposed to enter this giveaway. Do you just leave a comment? Can you email me if that is not the case? I could not find an entry form. I have not tried kind bars but would like to. Dexter is fabulous. I watched it when it came out new with my 2 grown sons. He is their idol I think! You will love the show.
