What I Ate Wednesday: SunBasket Review (and Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to food I want things to taste good, look great, (usually) be healthy, and be fun to eat! With being super busy with my new business on top of my regular schedule of activities :: said like an event announcer :: I have been trying to save time in any way possible. One timesaving idea was to check out one of the cook-your-own-meals subscription boxes, however I had always been a bit wary because of the incredible amount of waste that their packaging produced.

Sports Bras That Actually Fit: Title Nine #T9FitFest +Giveaway!

Hello Darlings!

Sports bra shopping drives me crazy. You want something that is cute, supportive, doesn’t bunch up your T-shirt, and most of all fits without digging in or completely flattening out the girls. Generally speaking a bra that fits all of those criteria is pretty hard to come by. My sports bras have always felt too restrictive (pancake boobs) or a bit too busty (cleavage is awesome sometimes, but when you’re falling out of your bra in headstand? Not so much.) and there didn’t seem to be a middle ground.

The Perfect Super Bowl Snack: Chex Mix! (&Giveaway! (Closed))

Hello Darlings!

I am all about an easy snack, especially when watching sporting events. With the Super Bowl coming up, Chex reached out with a fun box full of goodies to make sure your game day party goes off without a hitch.

So, of course I had to celebrate with a little party of my own- Chex Mix included!

Cookbook Love: Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches (& Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

Now, no birthday is complete without ice cream. And as a treat to myself (and the fact that Williams and Sonoma was having a 55% off sale!) I bought myself an ice cream maker for my birthday- and now I’m obsessed! I love that I can make healthier versions of ice cream- with almond milk YUM- at home and pretty much on a whim (minus the 24 hour freezing period) so I have been playing with making my own recipes but adoring the ones in my Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches cookbook!

Holistic Health with Boiron (and Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to how I cope with ailments I am anything but traditional. I love that there are so many options for healing in this world and that holistic health is becoming more popular in everyday society. I was fortunate to have grown up with a mother (now an herbalist!) who taught me how to listen to my body, and that when I wasn’t feeling my best I had the option of reaching for something natural.

And while often I was in the backyard picking mullen or dandelion for tea, when I needed something not so readily accessible I turned to Boiron- a name synonymous with holistic health. The little blue tubes were staples in my medicine cabinet, and as a human that bruises like a peach (and always has!) Arnica has always been one of my best friends!

Yoga on Your Own Terms: Yoga Download (and Giveaway)

Hello Darlings!

Life is crazy. True statement. And sometimes, making the time to fit your practice into your daily schedule can be difficult. Fighting your way through traffic to head to the yoga studio, the gym, or even the park can shave off precious minutes of your ‘me’ time so why not just walk from your bedroom to your favorite device? lets you do just that! I’m partial to practicing using my laptop when I practice at home because of its portability, but any device that is compatible with .MP4s will do.  You have option of streaming classes or downloading them to your device so you don’t need to be connected to wifi to practice!

What I Ate Wednesday: Gone Fishy (and Outer Spice Giveaway)

Hello Darlings!

I’ve been on a seafood kick lately. From fish to prawns to sushi, I’ve been loving everything that comes from the ocean (seaweed included!) So I thought I’d share some of my favorites from this past week!

One of the ‘make-it-simple’ ingredients that has been my go-to this past month is the line of spice blends from Outer Spice. I have been insanely busy and barely have time to think, let alone create a spice blend for every meal I eat.

One Step Protein Flapjacks: Kodiak Cakes Review & Giveaway!

Hello Darlings!

I am not a morning person. And because of that I’m not particularly fond of waking up to cook breakfast. (Brunch, however, completely different story.) So when there is a one-step way to make a delicious and healthy breakfast I can’t help but get excited. Kodiak Cakes, a whole grain and all-natural flapjack and waffle mix now with a protein-laden version, Power Cakes is just that! Just add water and you’re good to go!

Summer Drink Series: Lavender Whiskey Sour (& CamelBak Relay Pitcher Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

If you’ve been reading Chickadee Says for a while you might have noticed that I am rather obsessed with lavender. So when I was at the Blend Retreat in the beginning of June and spotted a lavender-whiskey cocktail on the menu at one of the distilleries in downtown Park City, I immediately ordered it. However, silly me didn’t think to ask about the ingredients until, well, when I decided to try to make it myself. So, while this isn’t a copy cat recipe, I most definitely was inspired by the lavender-whiskey combo!

Meatless Monday: Strawberry-Vanilla Chia Pudding with Mamma Chia (and Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

As a self-proclaimed night owl, anything that can save me time in the morning (read: sleep in later) is a godsend. Which is one of the many reasons I love making chia pudding the night before, popping it in the fridge and waking up to a delicious, omega-3 rich ready-to-go breakfast.

Mamma Chia recently came out with lots of additions to their chia product catalog and I could not be happier! They sent me out samples of their organic products and I’ve been on a chia-high since the goodies arrived and I can’t wait to share what I loved about them, but first: the recipe!

What I Ate Wednesday: I’m Obsessed with Skoop (& Giveaway- Closed)

Hello Darlings!

I have been beyond exhausted lately. While I love what I’m doing, I definitely have a lot on my plate. So I’ve been trying everything in order to maintain my generally chipper self! Eating clean, (attempting) to get to bed before one, and adding bladderwrack to my diet to help boost my thyroid, (thyroid problems run in my family, another cause of exhaustion), have all helped a bit but sometimes I felt like I just needed a coffee. Wanting coffee is incredibly strange for me- generally I’m a tea person, caffeine and I just don’t get along.

And then my roomate-to-be at Blend Retreat next month (yay!) Madelyn from Moon Fitness saved the day. She works for this wonderful small company based in Boulder, Skoop. A superfood blend of 41 non-GMO, gluten-free, organic ingredients, chock full of antioxidants, probiotics, and adaptogenic herbs that help reduce inflammation, Skoop was an instant, natural energy boost that stayed steady throughout the day.  And 10% of every bag feeds a child in need! Yes, please.

Newmans Own: Snack Organic (and Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

Newman’s Own Organics spoiled me. As well as sending a box of treats to little miss Tinkerbelle (treat my dog nicely and you’re automatically on my good side) they sent along a giant box of treats for me! I am a snacker with a giant sweet tooth, however I try to keep my sweets as organic and additive free as possible. Enter Newman’s Own with organic everything under the sun- yes, please! For the past few weeks I have been making my way through my organic sweets stash, picking out my favorites, and sharing the goodies with everyone who has come to visit.

Tinkerbelle Reviews: Newman’s Own Organics for Pets (Giveaway!)

Hello Darlings!

I am completely obsessed with my Samoyed Tinkerbelle (note the smiling face in my blog’s header) and as such believe that all of our fur babies deserve the same healthy food and treats that we feed ourselves. So when Newman’s Own Organics reached out and offered a package of goodies for both humans (more on that next week!) and little miss Tinkerbelle, I was excited for Tink to try the all organic line of treats and food!

Partner Yoga with Fairlife Milk and a Magic Bullet Giveaway (Closed)

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to milk I am incredibly particular about taste, about where it comes from, and about what is in it. Generally speaking I err on the side of almond milk or soy milk, but when I read about Fairlife Milk I was incredibly intrigued- especially after I read up on their Grass to Glass way of doing business and how incredibly well they treat their cows!

Guacamole Hummus plus Popchips & Jillian Michaels DVD Giveaway! (Closed)

Hello Darlings!

So, I know Cinco de Mayo is ages away and guacamole isn’t generally a winter-time treat, but when the lovely folks at Popchips sent over a ‘chipment’ of flavors to try I fell in love with their Salsa Tortilla Chips. Yep, you read that right, salsa-flavored-tortilla-chips. Yes, please! The salsa chips were one of many delicious flavors that Popchips had sent over, and I genuinely loved all of them. Which, generally speaking, is a bad thing when it comes to snack food, but with Popchips I can snack guilt free!

Mother Earth’s Healing Review and Prize Pack Giveaway! (Closed)

Hello Darlings!

When it comes to my body I believe that all natural everything is the way to go. From the detergent I wash my clothes with to the scrubs I wash my face with, I do not want any weird chemicals I can’t pronounce making their way into products that interact with my skin. So when I discover all natural products that are made by hand right here in the USA I get quite excited!

Mother Earth’s Healing on Etsy fits the bill. Handmade in Florida, the products carried by Mother Earth’s healing are all natural, full of organic ingredients, essential oils, and herbs- never anything artificial. The Etsy shop carries everything from body scrubs to wood polish- something for everything! The darling owner of the shop sent over a package of products for me to test out and has graciously decided to sponsor a giveaway for you lucky readers as well! (Details in the Rafflecopter Widget below!)

EcoTrek Fitness Whole Food Bars Review and Giveaway (Closed)

Hello Darlings!

If you’re anything like me, one of your New Year’s resolutions is one that revolves around healthy living and fitness. Whether it be skiing more, hitting the gym, or getting more acquainted with a yoga studio, all of these resolutions require a bit of fuel. I like to throw a protein bar or two into my gym bag and backpack when I head out, just in case I need some extra energy! When the darlings at Eco Trek Fitness Whole Food Bars reached out offering samples of their bars, I was excited to try them!
