October Favorites!!

October was a pretty busy month for me school wise because for some reason, every professor I have wanted to have at least 2 projects or papers due every week. Needless to say, November isn’t slowing down either as we are nearing the end of the semester. I’m very ready for the year to be over so I can enjoy the holiday season! Since October was so busy, my favorites are very sparse because I really didn’t get a chance to try or buy anything new. For November, I’m setting a goal to get up at least 6 posts, if not more! So with that being said – here are my monthly favorites (:

Batiste dry shampoo for dark hair – $7 at Target

IMG_0615

So I recently went back to the dark side for fall and my normal amika dry shampoo was leaving a tiny bit of a white cast on my hair when I used it. I’ve heard so many people rave about this product so I figured I would try it out, quickly it became my go to for when my hair is darker. I’m not really fond of the smell and I can’t honestly describe it but the amika one smells 50x better, but this doesn’t leave a white cast and actually has a dark color in it so it doesn’t show up in your hair as obviously. It’s really good at sucking up all the oil out of my hair and I don’t feel like I have gross, coarse sticky hair afterwards. If you have dark hair – this will be your life saver!

Scentsy Whipped Body Souffle in No. 34 – $28 through Scentsy consultant

IMG_0617

Scentsy? Lotion? I know. I was SO skeptical about trying this but I recently hosted a Scentsy party in October and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this soufflé. The consistency is perfect, it isn’t too thick and absorbs SO fast into the skin. I actually was able to put leggings on right after I applied this with no problem – aka, leggings approved. It absorbs fast, but it still hydrates really well and leaves your skin so incredibly soft. Now, the smell… holy crap. Online it says “White satin and pearls. The fairytale is yours for the taking amongst lilting confectionary notes pretty enough for a princess”. I don’t know if that describes anything well enough but I 100% only ordered this because it said it was pretty enough for a princess, so, duh – naturally… 😀 I never smelled this before I bought it so I was hoping it didn’t smell awful, and it definitely delivered! It smells like flowers, but still has a very faintly sweet candy smell – it’s just a perfect mix of floral and sweet. I adore it & if you have the chance check out their body line + their laundry line. I was super impressed with everything I ordered, but this the most!

479 Degrees popcorn in asiago, parmesan + cheddar – $4 at Target

IMG_0618

Holy. Guacamole. New favorite popcorn hands down – even over the 3,000 calorie movie theatre popcorn. This stuff is so good and with only 130 calories, 6g fat, & 16g carbs, this is a very macro friendly snack. Not to mention, 1 serving is 3 cups so you get a pretty good amount of popcorn! I received this as a snack in my Love With Food box and fell in love with it. It doesn’t taste like healthy popcorn which is a huge plus because most popcorn has no flavor and tastes like burnt paper. This is full of flavor and is definitely my favorite to date! They have TONS of other flavors as well so if cheese isn’t your thing, I’m sure they have something to fit your flavor! (Salted caramel is the bees knees too!).

Reebok Crossfit Lifter 2.0 – $120 at reebok.com

IMG_0621

As you can tell by the picture, I’ve given these babies a good bit of use this last month. They are so comfortable and I really feel like a get perfect stability from them with my leg workouts. Deep squats are SO much easier in these and I can really drive through my heels. I haven’t gotten a pair of Reebok shoes I don’t love and these were no exception. I wouldn’t recommend them for cardio though.. definitely not running shoes X). However, totally amazing for lifting and WODs.

Snapea Crisps in Caesar – $2 at Kroger

IMG_0620

I also received these as a snack in my Love With Food box (I’ll do a review on my next box if that would be helpful? Amazing company!). I was so incredibly weary about these because I HAAAATTTEEEE peas and I figured these would taste like baked disgusting grossness. To my very pleasant surprise, these are SO delicious. They also have a peanut taste to them and the caesar flavor is my favorite – they also have lightly salted, peppered, wasabi and a few others! These have 120 calories, 6g fat, 16g of carbs and also 5g of protein! I like to pre portion these out and take them to school with me for when I need something on my stomach, they’re so good and coming from a person who absolutely hates peas – these will not disappoint!

So October’s favorites were very sparse, but I again was so busy and didn’t have a chance to try many new things out – but these were my go to’s for the month! November’s is sure to be exciting! Let me know what your favorites were for the month of October & if there’s anything you’d like to see a post on/ review on this month! As always, thanks for reading! (:

3 Ingredient Paleo Pancakes!

The Paleo diet has been around since the cavemen, literally, this diet is 100% based off of what cavemen and cavewomen ate when they were around. If you’re not familiar with the Paleo diet, it’s basically you eat as whole as you possibly can. It comes from the idea that you eat food that can be harvested from the ground or hunted. You mostly eat meat, fish, veggies and fruit while excluding dairy or grain products as well as all processed foods. It’s actually a very healthy diet & as long as you’re getting a good amount of carbs in from your fruit & veggies, you won’t feel sluggish or tired. It’s a very hard, very strict lifestyle though because you don’t realize how much processed foods and grains you eat, until you can’t eat them. I did the Paleo diet not long ago for lent and it was actually pretty easy to follow once you got a decent plan and meal prep going. I was trying to come up with some recipes while I was on this diet and came up with these Paleo Pancakes that have only 3 ingredients in them & are pretty filling. I remembered these this morning when I grabbed for a banana and there was two VERY ripe bananas sitting on our countertop – so I thought I would share this quick and easy recipe!

Ingredients:

2 ripe bananas

1 whole egg

1 tsp cinnamon (or to your preference)

IMG_0536

Directions:

  1. Peel the bananas and mash them with a fork until they are as smooth as you can get them. They will act as the water and flour part in regular pancakes & you’ll see once you mash them they almost resemble the color and texture!
  2. Add in the egg. This will act as a binder and make the bananas cook easier & more like regular pancakes. I found they give these a bit of a french toast taste & texture!
  3. Add cinnamon to taste! You can also add fruit if you would like which I would have added blueberries or apples, but I wanted to give the basic recipe first. + I added a bit of Flavor God Chocolate Donut Seasoning as well !

IMG_0537IMG_0539IMG_0540

5. Heat up a griddle or whatever you cook pancakes on to medium/high temps. I sprayed my griddle with coconut oil to make sure nothing in these pancakes were straying from the paleo diet!

IMG_0543

6. Place a small amount onto the griddle & I let each side cook for about 10 minutes. These are a much different texture from normal pancakes and I find they need about double the time on each side to make sure they don’t crumble or fall apart when you go to flip them. If you don’t cook them long enough they will crumble & look like scrambled eggs – but still taste delicious!

IMG_0544

The finished product! I topped mine with some pure buckwheat honey & devoured them! They taste like banana french toast & have a light and fluffy texture. I really enjoyed these and they make about 5-6 pancakes depending on the side you make them (the smaller, the faster they cook). They come in at 60 calories, 1g of fat, 12g carbs, 6g sugar & 2g of protein for 1 pancake.

IMG_0547IMG_0548

I hope you enjoyed this recipe & let me know what you think if you try it out! Also, let me know some of your favorite Paleo recipes because I love trying new recipes! As always, thanks for reading (:

June Favorites!

I’m much later than usual with getting this up but I’ve been pretty busy with my training lately and getting some exciting new things lined up – but here it is! These are my favorite posts to do I think because I get to share all my very favorite products for each month with all of you & hopefully get you hooked on a new product as well (: So without further ado, here’s my monthly favorites!

OPA Greek Yogurt Caesar dressing – about 4$ at Kroger

IMG_0497

So I have a sick obsession with caesar salads, when I go out to eat I always get a caesar salad with chicken or a side caesar or whatever. Buuuuuut – the dressing is loaded with fat and if you’re watching your fat intake, most caesar dressings can ruin that right quick, fast & in a hurry. So my wonderful mother, knowing my obsession, found this gem at Kroger one day and brought it home. I eat a salad almost everyday now with this stuff on it and I take it with me in a container when I go out to restaurants so I can use my own dressing that doesn’t have 57g of fat in it. It tastes just like regular caesar too, with just a little less fishy taste, which I prefer. It’s made with greek yogurt too so it still has a bit of a bite to it & at only 5g of fat, 60 calories and 1g of sugar, it’s easily a much healthier alternative to classic caesar dressing! Plus they have ranch, blue cheese & other flavors as well!

MusclePharm Combat Crunch bar in Cinnamon Twist – $2.75 a bar at GNC

gomacro macrobar in sunny uplift (cherries + berries) – about $3 at Whole Foods

IMG_0503

So I was able to try the MP protein bar at the Arnold Classic back in March and I fell in love with it. It’s so delicious and even people I know who hate cinnamon love this bar. It doesn’t leave that nasty after taste in your mouth that some protein bars do & it’s got 20g of protein in it! I’m not a huge fan of these big name protein bars because there’s a lot of added god knows what’s in them but if I’m in a pinch and I don’t have the second bar I’m about to mention – I’ll grab one of these! NOW, the gomacro bar is heaven. These are a lot better for you nutrition wise and they taste phenomenal ! My favorite ones are the sunny uplift and the banana almond one. They’re so good & only have 200 calories, 4g of fat & 39g of carbs. And not to mention – you can read and understand all the ingredients!! These really do keep me full for a while and they taste delicious – even though they look like bird food. Trust me & try one!!

ProJym protein in S’mores – $32.56 at BodyBuilding.com

PreJym preworkout in Cherry Limeade – $35.57 at BodyBuilding.com

IMG_0500

So this ProJym protein has quickly become my favorite protein to date. It was created by Dr. Jim Stoppani and it’s not spiked with added extras or aminos – it’s 100% protein from egg, whey and casein proteins. I got s’mores flavor and it’s delicious, plus it has little marshmallows in it, but it doesn’t really taste like s’mores, I think it’s more of a cold hot chocolate taste, which I’m 100% okay with! I really feel like it helps cut my soreness down and helps me recover & build very efficiently. I’m really excited to continue use & keep y’all updated! The pre workout is equally amazing. I’m not a huge pre workout person, but some days I can’t run without it. I’m tired, feel lazy and just tired – so this stuff really helps. I used it last Sunday on my 3 mile maintenance run and managed to have negative splits, took a whole minute off my pace from my 2nd to 3rd miles and took 2 minutes off my 3 mile run time. So I don’t know if I had a good run day or it was this pre workout, but I’ll definitely keep everyone posted!

Valentino Rockstud Aviator sunglasses – $346 at Nordstrom

IMG_0498

My wonderful boyfriend got me these as a just because gift while we were in Florida & I had to mention them because they’re so cute on and they’re easily my favorite aviators now! The stud on either side of the frames makes them so unique and they have a white trim around the frames that make the blue really stand out. Easy to say, I’m obsessed 😀

Brooks Glycerine 13 Aurora Collection – $160 at Runner’s Plus

IMG_0505

These. Just, no words. Hands down, no shoe compares to Brooks Glycerine shoes. They are literal pillows for your feet. I have the Glycerine 12’s that I got about a year ago and they have taken away the stress on my ankles, shins and feet to where none of those joints or anything hurt. They’re really cushioned and have a great design that makes them not only comfortable but gives them a great heel to toe transition. Easily my favorite running shoe. Now, they just recently took the Glycerine, the Ghost and Adrenaline shoe and released them in a new collection called the Aurora collection that’s based off of the Aurora Borealis & they are ALL gorgeous. But when I saw they had the Glycerine in that collection with these colors I ran to my local runner’s shop and bought them. They’re amazing & I promise once you switch to Brooks, you’ll never look back. Nike shoes KILLED my feet and arches but I’ve never had any problem whatsoever with my arches in these shoes! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend these!

Lush Ocean Salt – $21.95 at LUSH

Lush D’Fluff – $16.95 at LUSH

IMG_0499

LUSH is well known for their products being all natural with no preservatives or parabens so I really do like buying their products when I can. We stopped at the Tampa International Plaza while in Florida and they had a LUSH store inside. I had heard of both but the girl helping me told me that together they’re a dream – and let me tell you, she was right. Ocean Salt is a scrub that’s made with some vodka infused lime or something and salt (literally smells like a margarita…) so it helps really exfoliate and brighten the skin while stimulating the hair follicles to get a closer shave. D’Fluff is like a soft soap consistency and smells AMAZING. It’s supposed to help with irritation, razor burn and ingrown hair issues. When I use them both together I get such a close shave and my hair doesn’t come back until at least 24 hours later, which is good for me cause I usually step out of the shower and it starts going again -_- But they both I believe are really good products and seem to really cut down on any irritation I’ve had and the ocean salt really does brighten your skin! Try it next time you’re in a LUSH store!

L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara – $6.99 at Target

IMG_0504

In the summer, I’m honestly not a makeup wearer cause I’m oily and anything I put on my face melts off within an hour. So when I’m going to run errands I’ll throw some mascara on and head out the door so I don’t look completely like a bum. This is the best drugstore mascara I’ve tried & thanks to my mom for picking it up for me one day to try cause it’s the bomb. When I first got it I hated it cause it was really wet and I felt like it just kinda weighed my lashes down so I put it up. Well one day a few weeks ago I picked it back up and after it had dried out a little bit it was fantastic! The only downside is it clumps just a little bit with two coats, but most drugstore mascaras clump with the very first application. So if you’re in the market for an affordable mascara – this is a good route to go!!

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 – $39 at Sephora

IMG_0506IMG_0507

So Make Up For Ever came out not long ago with these pro sculpting duos, releasing two shades. Well in Sephora one day I decided the check them out and I’m gonna be honest, I ONLY bought this for the highlighter shade in this. Complete waste of the bronzer but it’s just so orange on me, so maybe I’ll use it as an eyeshadow or something, BUT, the highlighter is gorgeous! It’s a nice light gold shade & there’s no chunky glitter or anything in it. I usually stay away from gold highlighters cause I’m not the tannest person in the world & I usually stick with pink undertone highlighters, but I couldn’t pass it up. I swatched it in the store and kept staring at it so I caved and bought it. When I got home I researched & found that the highlighter is a dupe for MAC Whisper of Guilt that was a limited edition release a long time ago that everyone lost their mind about. So if you didn’t get your hands on that, go get this duo!

Chanel Les Beiges All-In-One Healthy Glow Fluid (SPF 15) in #30 – $45 at Chanel counters

IMG_0508

This was a splurge, but Chanel makes some of the best products around & this was no exception. This is like a BB cream coverage but it gives you the most gorgeous healthy glow & it still looks completely natural cause your skin still peeks through underneath. It’s great to just throw on and go out the door in. It’s expensive, but Chanel knows their stuff when it comes to makeup. Another use which I’ve found works really well is applying a mattifying primer, then applying this over top to keep you from looking like a grease ball if you’re an oily person like me. Any way you use this I feel it just makes you look so healthy and beautiful, definitely a great product!

Givenchy Matte & Translucent Loose Finishing Powder – $53 at Sephora

IMG_0509

Another splurge, lol, but this is now my all time favorite setting powder! Like I said above, I’m oily & this really keeps that under control. I wore this over my makeup to a BBQ a few weeks back in June & it was hot and muggy out, I was sweating and I thought for sure my face was going to look like someone coated it in clear coat when I got home. But to my surprise, the only part on my face that was shiny looking was my highlight. I looked in the mirror and screamed because I was so shocked. I’ve never had a setting powder do that before & keep me matte even in the heat & sweat. The finish of this is beautiful too because it doesn’t leave your skin with that powdery, gross cakey look most mattifying powders do. The finish is very natural and feels like velvet on your face. This stuff is expensive, but it’s 100% worth it if you’ve tried everything to keep your face matte & just can’t. This gets the oily girl seal of approval!

So I hope these favorites were useful & you want to try something new out that you found interesting! Let me know if you try any of these things out or if you have an alternative to a favorite of mine that you think I may like better! What are some of your favorites? As always, thanks for reading!

My Favorite Healthy On-the-go Snacks!

If I’m out and about the last thing I want to eat is fast food because honestly, thinking about how they make their food makes me sick to my stomach. I will sometimes get the occasional Chipotle because, it’s Chipotle? But as far as McDonald’s, Wendy’s, etc.. No thank you. Being a college student, I’m out at classes a lot and I have some down time in between classes & as far as food goes for around my university, there’s nothing but fast food after fast food restaurants around it. So I usually pack my meals with me if I know I’ll be there for a long period of time. With it being summer, if I’m out running errands I like to bring snacks with me because I try to eat at least 6 meals a day. But sometimes, I’m honestly just not hungry and I’ll take something quick and easy with me, so for this post, I wanted to share my favorite healthy snacks I bring when I’m out and on-the-go!

IMG_0319

Probably my favorite of all, The Protein Cookie Company’s protein cookies. These are the bomb & come in at around 230 calories a cookie, 20 g of protein, 29 g of carbs & 5 g of fat. These are pretty filling too & it really satisfies my cravings for something sweet. Check them out here !

IMG_0320

Buff Bake protein nut butters really grabbed my attention because 1. I have a peanut butter addiction and 2. the flavors are out of this world. They recently just introduced these little on-the-go packs & it’s really convenient to take with you anywhere! You can eat them straight like I do, or put them on anything from waffles to rice cakes or mix them in a smoothie! My favorite of all is the Snickerdoodle almond butter. They also offer them in jars, but for on-the-go, I think the packs are really convenient ! Try them here, they’re also offering free samples right now so get some while you can (:

IMG_0323

Rice cakes, I know, ew right? No, these white cheddar ones changed the game for me. They’re really packed with flavor & great with some turkey on top! The original rice cakes are good too, but these and the chocolate kind really opened my eyes to the not  so boring side of rice cakes. These are great to put in a plastic baggy and head out the door!

IMG_0324

I mentioned this Whirlybird granola in my last favorites post & I just can’t get enough of it! This is my favorite flavor because I’m obsessed with blueberries and it’s got a great taste and it’s pretty good for you as well. I usually measure out the 30g serving with my food scale and put it in a to-go container and head out the door. This also satisfies my sweet tooth because the blueberries and vanilla have a great taste together, and it’s only sweetener is organic agave & stevia !

IMG_0325

GNC Lean Shakes aren’t necessarily my favorite on their own with just water because they are a bit too thick, but in a smoothie with a banana and peanut butter, it’s super satisfying and really good. These are technically meal replacement shakes, so they do really fill you up & make sure you aren’t hungry for a little while after eating them. Sometimes I just don’t have time in the morning to make a whole breakfast, so these are a really good substitute !

IMG_0326

thinkThin bars are one of the better tasting protein bars I’ve had, but they still taste like protein bars. But these are one of the better ones for you nutrition wise that you can get at almost any grocery store! These only have 150 calories, 10 g of protein, 5 g of fiber and only 5 g of sugar, so they aren’t that bad for you (unlike Quest bars). They’re also pretty low in carbs and the ingredients on the back isn’t loaded with tons of things you can’t pronounce (again, unlike Quest bars). So if you’re going to go for a protein bar, I’d suggest these or any of the Thunderbird brand (find at Whole Foods or Fresh Thyme!)

IMG_0327

This isn’t food, but when I’m thirsty and I don’t want water, I’ll go to Starbucks and get a Venti green tea with no sweetener. So if you’ve ever had their green tea, I think it’s pretty good, but most other people hate it – SO, I figured I would put a scoop of my BCAA’s in with it and it 100% changed my green tea game. It’s so good because these aminos have a great orangey mango flavor and it just adds so much more to the green tea. I really love these aminos too because they really cut down on my soreness and help with recovery after a rough workout & they help with hydration!

jack-links-turkey-jerky

Turkey jerky is one of my favorites as well because in my opinion, it had a better taste than beef jerky and it’s much more healthy for you. You can find these basically anywhere & if you’re in an SOS position, these would be a good thing to grab for! Plus it’s pretty high in protein and low in fat so it’ll keep you full for a little while!

Unknown

Tuna/Salmon packets may not sound appetizing, but tuna is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and it’s pretty low in calories. They also have the to-go packs with mayo, and crackers, but they mayo isn’t light & the crackers aren’t the best tasting- so I would stay away from those. I find these with a plastic fork makes a great to-go snack that is really healthy for you as well!

almonds-face-packs

It’s been said that almonds are one of the healthiest foods you can eat because they are loaded with different vitamins like biotin, vitamin E and vitamins B2. They lower bad cholesterol, can reduce the risk of heart disease, protect against heart disease & diabetes, they’re great for your skin, nails & hair, they have healthy fats that can aid in weight loss, can prevent gallstones and the list goes on and on. Raw almonds are great for you & I read a study that said if you eat them daily, it can help you eat a better diet! So it’s pretty safe to say that almonds are a great snack for on-the-go!

These are some of my favorite snacks when I’m on the go or traveling! Let me know some of your favorite healthy snacks & if you have tried any of the ones I mentioned! Thanks for reading (:

Refreshing Summer Dip!

So I came across this dip recipe on Facebook about a month ago and had been meaning to try it because it looked absolutely delicious and I was told that it was as good as it looked! The original creator of this dip is Marilyn Hanbury from her Facebook page and looking through her recipes she has some AMAZING looking stuff! So I decided to give this stuff a whirl since I loved (almost) everything in it! + Recently becoming a member of Healthy Living Blogs, I decided now was a good time to do my first recipe!

So first to start off you need 2 jalapeños, 1 red bell pepper, 1 can of corn [no salt added] & plain non-fat greek yogurt. The recipe also called for a half a can of sliced olives but I couldn’t find the low sodium ones so I just omitted that! So this is what you’ll have once you have all your ingredients together! *I used the sweet potato chips for dipping!

IMG_0243

After you chop the red bell pepper & chop + de-seed the jalapeños you’ll want to add the whole can of corn and 16 oz of Greek yogurt together!

IMG_0245

^ All the ingredients!

IMG_0246

^ All the ingredients in a bowl together before combining!

IMG_0247

This is the final products and I tell you, it’s delicious with the sweet potato chips! I also added a little pinch of Himylayian pink salt and a bit of my Flavor God Garlic Lovers seasoning [here + they’re 100% clean and won’t ruin your diet!] After calculating one serving (4 oz) came out to be around 100 calories, low salt (if you use no salt added corn) and zero fat! Basically it’s completely guilt free and I can’t wait to eat some while I’m sitting by a pool this summer because it’s got really great flavor and it’s really refreshing! Next time, I might leave 1/2 of the seeds from 1 jalapeno in to add just a little bit of heat!

Let me know if you try this and if you like it + also, what are some of your favorite clean summer snacks?!

Thanks for reading (:
