Vega Bar Tastiness

Thanks to FitApproach and Vega, I had the chance to try all of Vega’s new Food Bars being launched next month! They provided me with free product in exchange for a review and some tweets/instagrams but all opinions are my own. Anyway, since I already love Vega’s protein powders and shakes, I jumped at the change to try their bars even though I don’t usually

Kona Kase Review

Last week, I was super excited when I received my first Kona Kase in the mail!  Through a partnership with Fitfluential, I received the Kona Kase for free for the purposes of reviewing it on my blog.  All opinions expressed are my own honest thoughts.

First, let’s do the run down of what Kona Kase is all about:

It is $15 per

Best Laid Plans

Happy Spring everyone!

Yeah, so this is what I drove through to get to school yesterday, only to get an email that they canceled classes for the rest of the day (after I arrived to campus). Grumble, grumble.

So, this weekend was pretty good actually. We had a wide open weekend so of course it got all filled up in not time. I got to

Local Eats: The Ram’s Head Inn

My third and final installment for this year’s Atlantic City Restaurant Week is The Ram’s Head Inn.  This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area, so much so that I got married there! 

This is definitely on the higher end of my restaurant budget but comparable to Steve & Cookies with entrees in the $25 – $40 range.  It is also a

Review: Product Samples from KLUTCHclub

A couple of weeks (months) ago, I was at my friend’s Lauren‘s house and she had a sample box from KLUTCHclub (see below) sitting on her counter. She said she had tons of them, pulled them out, and let me take some samples since she could never get to using all of them. I’m finally getting around to trying them!

This morning, I wasn’t feeling

Local Eats: Atlantic City Country Club

Up next on the Atlantic City Restaurant Week reviews is the Atlantic City Country Club.  This is located not too far from my house.  I wanted to meet my sister for lunch but she had to work so we wanted to choose someplace on the mainland (verses in Atlantic City itself) so she didn’t have as far to drive.

We went here last year and

Coconut Yogurt, Brazilian Butts, & CrossFit at Home

Man has it been a long week.  I have always had digestive problems but my stomach has been really bad for the last 2 or 3 weeks now.  I don’t mention it because who likes to talk about that?  Then I got food poisoning yesterday!  Today at the grocery store, I bought a So Delicious Coconut Milk Probiotic Drink.  This is the first time I’ve

Review: Vega One Nutritional Shake

A few weeks ago, I signed up to get the Vega emails from a link that Colourful Palate provided with her smoothie challenge. The bonus was that it included a free sample! It came last week and I finally tried it this morning.

The sample was for their Vega One “all-in-one nutritional shake”. Basically, it has a bunch of great things like probiotics, antioxidants,
