Snail Mail Favorites, a New Protein Cookie Dough and a Limited Edition LOVE GIVEAWAY

Snail Mail Favorites, a New Protein Cookie Dough and a Limited Edition LOVE GIVEAWAY


Finally it’s time for all sorts of favorite chat and a special LOVE-filled giveaway.

First of all, this is my favorite go-to move in the morning when I need to wake up and am going to do a little home HIIT session.


(Click here for actual link to video on instagram. I’m too lazy to upload it to YouTube.)


I love, love love this quote from Happsters I spotted the other day.

2015-02-01 08.58.04_thumb

I’ve been thinking about it ever since and trying to live it. I’ve been quieter on social media, but hopefully I’ve been making real life moments worth remembering. Isn’t that just the best though?


Oh and after searching for a very long time to try to find Silk Cashewmilk, I finally found it at Walmart of all places. They didn’t have the unsweetened kind, but this is delightful.

2015-01-31 09.13.15

I’m still a sucker for my usual Silk unsweetened vanilla almondmilk, but this is really good too. If it was easier to find I might change my mind and make this my new number one. Ha.


If you haven’t seen this month’s Pro Compression Sock of the Month, you need to check it out.

Code HEART gets 40% off and free shipping. I’m not usually a heart girl, but I couldn’t pass these up.


I recently got a super cute package from Quest Nutrition.


Those two Quest Bars lasted for approximately 24 hours. That might actually be a little generous on my estimate. Ha.

I did get creative and baked the s’mores along with some Flatout cinnamon crisps to make a fun little sandwich.

2015-01-25 13.10.49

Right? If only I had a few more bars………. Ha.


Speaking of bars though, I’m stocked up on my go-to Vega Sport protein bars.


Oh that chocolate mint one just rocks my socks off. I mean, they all do, but that one is just the best.

2015-01-22 16.30.03

The butler even thinks so. Ha ha.

Speaking of Vega, they have come out with a new Vega One formula and it’s awesome. They just came out with a few new flavors- mocha and coconut almond.


I’ve been using the mocha one in my morning smoothies with my liquid egg whites and that cashewmilk. It’s good stuff.


If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile you know I’m a huge fan of Action Wipes and friends, after a very long wait, they are BACK! I can’t even tell you how excited I am.


They are the best wipes ever and I have a package in my bathroom at all times and single use packets in my gym bag. In fact, I took an Action Wipe “shower” tonight after my spin class. Yes, yes I did and it was fabulous.

These are the best wipes ever. I pretty much hunted them down after I discovered them years ago at the IDEA Fitness World Fitness Convention. You can use code mama2015 for 20% off Action Wipes or Thera Bee Honey products.


I haven’t had much time to prepare or take pictures of food with the new schedule, but I’m still going through NuttZo like crazy.


It’s always a big deal when the NuttZo shipment arrives around here.


And finally, it’s also always a big deal with the Love Grown Foods  LOVE DROP arrives. You know what’s even better though?

A surprise birthday LOVE DROP with all my favorites (Chocolate Power O’s, Cocoa Goodness granola and Super Oats).

2015-02-04 16.44.51 HDR

They are just one heck of an incredible company. They also have one heck of an incredible Limited Edition product for the month of February.


Heart shaped Power O’s in Chocolate AND Strawberry flavors. Could it get any better?

Only when there’s a giveaway involved and only when a new protein cookie dough is created to celebrate these cute little O’s (or hearts).


Oh yes.

I first came up with the whole protein cookie dough thing three years ago around Valentine’s Day. It was time to revisit and create a new version.

I don’t have the time or energy to experiment in the kitchen much these days like I used to, but I did have just enough time this afternoon to whip together the fasted protein cookie dough ever and get some mediocre soccer snacks together for the boys’ game.


I threw this together in less than five minutes. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but it ended up being fabulous and even better than the old cookie dough I used to make.

Here’s how it went down.



With a fun spoon of course.


It’s also really fun to eat when you’re wearing a Love Grown Foods shirt.


Ha ha. That was a pretty awesome coincidence, wasn’t it?


I don’t want you to miss out on any LOVE or on any fun, so here’s a little GIVEAWAY for you.

Enter to win your own special Limited Edition Valentine’s Day LOVE Drop of LOVE O’s.



All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment here telling me your favorite thing about Valentine’s Day or your favorite thing to get in the mail.

You can tweet for an additional entry, just be sure to come back here and leave me an additional comment letting me know that you did.

“ I want to win a @lovegrownfoods #LOVEOsLOVEfest from @stuftmama. http://ow.ly/IAxGX


*Open to US residents only. Winner will be randomly chosen from the comments below. Giveaway open until on Sunday, February 8th at 11:59 pm. Winner will be announced on the blog Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend filled with LOADS of LOVE!

    I’d have to say my favorite thing about “GALentine’s” Day is getting together with my best girl friends and just having one of those days to watch sappy movies and make fun of relationships (it helps i swear).. i totally want to hang out at Jessica Biel’s party in Valentine’s Day..because there has yet to be a pinata at one of ours!

    My favorite part of Valentines day is a new tradition I started last year…sending my fiancé (last year he was my boyfriend!) on a Valentines day scavenger hunt! He has to go all over town finding little treats/ gifts that I hid in different places, all with a clue written on them sending him to the next gift!

    I think it is more fun for me to put together than anything 😉

    My favorite thing to get in the mail is the little coupon book from local places (it comes once per season). I like it because it gives me an excuse to try new restaurants!
