Happy Friday, friends! So happy that the weekend is finally here. I have been craving sushi for the past few weeks and on Sunday we are going out for my (future) sister-in-law’s birthday at a really great sushi restaurant. SO excited!
I have a bunch of favorite products/food/etc. from this past week so let’s get right to it.
I was grocery shopping earlier this week and Smucker’s new Natural fruit spread was on sale so I decided to pick it up. I’ve tried other natural fruit spreads in the past (i.e. Welch’s), but this one was so much better. My favorite flavor at the moment is orange marmalade. It’s just so fresh tasting. The Natural line doesn’t contain any high fructose corn syrup! Here’s what’s inside:
- orange juice
- orange peel
- fruit pectin
- citric acid
I’ve been mixing a tablespoon (or two) in a bowl of cottage cheese a lot this week. And by a lot, I mean every day.
Haha. I came across this graphic on Pinterest this week and fell in love with it. I showed Bryan it and he said, “Yep, that’s about right.” LOL how can you say ‘no’ to that little face?! I saved the graphic onto my phone so that I have it on hand in case I need it.
I also finally bought chia seeds this week. I don’t know why it took me so long to finally buy these, but I’m so glad that I did. I thought I did a post talking about the benefits of chia seeds, but I haven’t so that’s on my agenda for next week. I put a tablespoon of seeds in a big glass of water, but next time I think I’ll add more water and put it in a water bottle so I can continuously shake it, because the seeds tend to settle to the bottom otherwise.
You all know how much I love Reflexion Yoga videos and if you’re utilizing their site you’re probably in love too. Well the team over at Reflexion Yoga is competing in a contest called Small Business Big Game. It’s a chance for small businesses to get national exposure by winning a commercial spot during the Super Bowl! How awesome is that?! Reflexion Yoga already got past round 1 and can really use your support and votes to get them to the Super Bowl. If you could please visit Small Business Big Game and vote for Reflexion Yoga that would be fantastic. They definitely deserve the exposure.
