Hemp Hearts by Manitoba Harvest

*Disclosure, I received product from Manitoba Harvest via my affiliation with Fit Approach.  As always, my thoughts are my own. Every once in a while I will toss a bag of Manitoba Hemp Hearts or a container of Manitoba Hemp Protein Powder into my grocery cart.  I love Manitoba products.  Did you know that they are the worlds largest hemp food manufacturer and they make and sell their own line of hemp foods? What is Hemp?  Well the fast easy answer is this … A super plant. At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil.  Hemp foods taste great! Hemp foods have a slightly nutty taste that complements any dish.  Read more about Hemp here.

Peanut Butter Protein Banana Waffles

*Disclosure, I was compensated and given product for my recipe and review of Mighty Nut through my affiliation with Fit Approach.  Recipe is my own and opinion. Making breakfast for the kids each morning is something I really make a point of doing.  I want to send them out the door ready for the day ahead and we have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Trying to get creative is the hard part, but the kids love pancakes or waffles as their favorite morning meal.  I am always looking to keep the ingredients good and healthy for all the meals and at times {many times}, I “sneak” the goods into their food. I can now add some extra good to their waffles or pancakes with Mighty Nut powered peanut butter.  This is awesome, I love using powdered peanut butter in smoothies, shakes, making dips…  Read More…

It’s a Win with WIN Sports Detergent and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received product to review through my affiliation with Fit Approach. As always, my opinion is just my own and honest. Let’s talk laundry, shall we.  No one knows laundry like moms {okay not fair, I am sure some dads know laundry} but let’s just go with this.  Laundry and family … yikes.  Am I right?  We have two separate baskets in this house for laundry and I wish I could say I were so organized that one was for whites and one for colors.  Only even I am not that good.  Two baskets, always full and once they are empty and I do the happy dance, then BAM! full again.  Seriously, where does all of it come from? As often as I keep up on the laundry, it still tends to smell “mucky” in those baskets, especially when I am reaching deep down into them to pull the…  Read More…
