Hello my loves.

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. It’s so hard for me to concept a weekend anymore since I work every Saturday, my weekends fly by a lot quicker when I only have one day to really relax.  And not that I don’t miss him, but Matt was at a design conference all weekend, so I actually had some quiet time to myself. But I’m not going to lie, it can get a little boring.

I probably should have worked on more wedding things, as I feel like it is quickly creeping up on me, and I still have so much to do, but I took the quiet time to actually just relax and chill out. I try to keep my stress levels low, but when you finish addressing all your save the dates only to notice at the very end that there was a typo on the date and the wrong year was printed… kind of hard not to freak out a bit.

It doesn’t help that on top of it all Matt and I have both been sick for the past few days, so I haven’t had much motivation or energy to do more than lay on the couch in my spare moments.

But I did of course want to check in with you lovelies and share a few goodies.

Since I’ve been sick, my appetite has of course been a bit off. I find myself snacking a lot more as I don’t have as big of a hunger for big meals.  But I’ve never had problems with being a snacker and thankfully I have had some tasty treats showing up at the house.

When I know I need to get some energy in me and don’t have the appetite for a huge meal, nuts are always a go to for me.

Have you guys heard of Living Nutz?

They provide raw organic nuts and seeds and they come in some really interesting flavors.  Not only do I think the fact that their products are organic are great, but the fact that they are raw and unprocessed  I think is amazing.  They explain that this keeps more nutrients and enzymes in the nuts, making them better for you. And did I mention their amazing flavors?

I was most blown away by the Tahitian Vanilla Coco Creme Walnuts, as I love walnuts to begin with, but the exotic vanilla flavor was amazing. I ate these straight from the bag, but also topped my yogurt and ice cream with them. Such a nice sweet crunch.

The Vegan Cheezy Almonds were another favorite and these were a great addition to my salads.  Again a nice added crunch.

Have I mentioned I love crunch? I am such a texture eater.

Speaking of crunch.

I recently reviewed the new Quest Nutrition protein chips and I am still loving those.

Perfect little protein snack and I highly recommend if you have any left over guacamole from Chipotle like I did, they go amazing together.

But really anything covered in guacamole, especially from Chipotle, is amazing.

And while we’re on the topic of amazing, you know what else is amazing?

Winning giveaways.

I was lucky enough to win a few giveaways recently and had my prizes delivered.

I am so excited to try these new KIND granola bars. I am a huge fan of their other bars and granola, so I’m pretty sure I will be a fan of these as well!

I also received another surprise on my door step recently.  I have worked with Enjoy Life Foods in the past in reviewing some of their products and honestly I have never been disappointed in what they make. I recently made my very first chocolate chip pumpkin bread using their dairy free mini chips ( keep an eye out for a recipe), that when this surprise package arrived I was more than excited.

I love their seed and fruit mixes and love that their products are nut free and gluten free. A perfect snack when I need a little something in between meals. I take this to work a lot to snack on through out the day. So thank you very much to all my friends at Enjoy Life for thinking of me and sending these my way!
