Friday 5! New Products, Snacks, Runs and WINNERS!

Yeah for Friday!  It hasn’t been a stressful week but I am always excited to see Friday roll around!  I’m even more excited to see January END!  Though February has always been my least favorite month!  We are also supposed to get another dumping of snow this weekend!  Oh joy!

This weekend is a bit busier but it’s all filled with wonderful and fun things including a Superbowl party and a much needed haircut on Sunday!  Here is just a handful of things I have been loving lately!


ImageAs someone who has blogged about KIND in the past I was thrilled when the folks at KIND wanted to send me some of their newest product!  KIND Healthy Grains Bars are all natural granola bars made from ingredients you can see and pronounce. Each perfectly chewy-with-a-crunch bar is gluten free and packs more than one full serving of whole grains (think amaranth, millet, and quinoa), which provides fiber and protein.  They are lower in calories and fat than other KIND bars which make them the perfect late morning or afternoon snack! Hubs and I took one to the movies this week and we were both quite happy!  Perfectly chewy and satisfying, they make a great snack!



I bought apple/Asian pears as Costco over the weekend and they are sensational!  So juicy!  Been loving them and will be going back this weekend to get more!  Anyone else loving these fiber filled seasonal fruits?

3) Have you guys heard of Lesser Evil snacks?

Run, don’t walk to get these amazing chips and snack that are available at many stores and on!  Lesser Evil uses black beans and organic popcorn as bases. I was sent samples of their Super 4 Crunchy Bean Chips and their Chia Crisps

Super 4 Comes in 3 great flavors and they all packed with the four main ingredients: White Bean, Quinoa, Lentil and Chia!

Their Chia Crisps come in four great flavors:

Feta and Black Olive

Crunchy Dill Pickle

Jalapeno White Cheddar

Souther Barbecue.

I was thrilled to find out that so many stores around me have Lesser Evil!  What flavor sounds best to you?  Want more?  I’ve got a giveaway coming for Lesser Evil VERY SOON!

4) I made these Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Peanut Butter Banana Bites on Wednesday night!


The recipe is coming next week when I do ANOTHER Peanut Butter & Co. giveaway!

5) I’ve been working hard to achieve my 2014 Running Goal of 2014km!

I broke some records this month according to RunKeeper and finished January strong!  I’m pretty excited about the miles I covered (running on my treadmill.) I’m also proud that in addition to the miles I ran I have been going The Daily Method 3 days week!    How was your January?



Finally, we have some winners!

The winner of the Foods Alive Online Gift Certificate is #259 Trish Trubl

The winner of the Peanut Butter & Co is # 126 JJ

The winner of the Justin’s Coupons are #172 Rachel Beavers Tungate

Be on the lookout for an email from me!  Congrats!

I will have plenty of giveaways in the coming weeks!!

What do you have going on this weekend?  More snow coming your way?  How are you staying warm?

    A lot of rain in Florida so I am hoping for a little sunshine- haven’t been outside to run since Monday! That is a long time for this Florida girl! Superbowl plans are on for this weekend!

    No real plans for this weekend as of right now. We’ll watch the Super Bowl Sunday night, but that’s about it. We do have more snow coming and they’re forecasting quite a bit of snow in the coming week. I’m just hoping we don’t get the freezing rain and ice that is a possibility.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I bought a case of the Lesser Evil “french fries” for the boys & they LOVE them!
    How do you do runkeeper on the treadmill?
    I’m sure it’s simple, but I need help, please!
    That’d be so much easier than doing it the antiquated way of writing down my miles.
    Oh Geeze, sometimes, I need your tutorials!
    Those fun frozen bp bites look amazing!

    I’m excited about winning. Thank you! Can’t wait to try the Foods Alive products. Lucky for me I don’t have to worry about snow. As I live in Phoenix, AZ. However, I am nursing an injury (my heel) from Monday. Here’s to hope it heel this weekend, so I can get a long run in on Monday!

  11. Oh my goodness first of all you are a beast and an inspiration to me for getting in all those miles! Second I LOVE those chips! I just tried them for the first time the other day and promptly made a trip out of my way to get my own haha.
