Hi Friends- here’s a look at our week!
The boys are at such a fun age for family outings! This week we took a mini-vacation to visit Colonial Williamsburg, Great Wolf Lodge and Busch Gardens. We had a blast (minus a FEW SNAFUS like loosing a cell phone and forgetting Cole’s bag at home – oops!).
We wrote all about how we keep Great Wolf Lodge AFFORDABLE —> HERE. Part of that is packing a lot of our own meals and snacks. There is one thing that we can’t miss though while vacationing at Great Wolf Lodge – the breakfast buffet!! Sooo good; we crazy love the omelet station and cinnamon apples.
For the ride home we packed some of the usual suspects (RECOVERY FOOD!): Apple Cinnamon Rx Bar and a new flavor of Epic Bar, Pulled Pork Pineapple, which there are no words for. Epic recently launched a new line of fun flavors that are all incredible. Check them out —> HERE! Stacy also had (and loved!) a Suja Uber Greens drink.
THIS COOKIE (a parting gift from our vacationing buddy, Nicole of Merit + Fork). These are some of the best chocolate chip cookies, Paleo or not, that we’ve ever had. And if that weren’t enough, they are also nut-free and egg-free. You can make them yourself, courtesy of our friends Merit + Fork. Get the Recipe!
Congrats to Our Friends
We’ve gotten our hands on some insanely awesome cook books lately! Check out Paleo Take-Out by Russ The Domestic Man —> and be sure to pre-order for the lowest price on Amazon. We’re certain this will be one of the BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR!
One Pot Paleo by Paleo Foodie Kitchen is full of genius recipes and will revolutionize your dinner process (we mean seriously REDUCE THE TIME YOU SPEND DOING DISHES!).
We’ve already had the opportunity to sample a few of the recipes from Down South Paleo – and can tell you WITH CERTAINTY that they are awesome. You will absolutely love this book from Predominately Paleo! I love that it’s not just traditional southern food, but also some legit Tex Mex that’s grain and dairy-free!
Just in time for Father’s Day! Primal Life Organics released a new line of men’s product- The Gruff line. It includes shaving cream, after shave lotion, and BEARD OIL! Check them out —> HERE!
One step forward and two steps back?! —> High Fructose Corn Syrup has Been Renamed and is Now Being Marketed as a Natural Sweetener.
Not getting enough sleep? How do you know how much you need? And did you know that you can’t just “catch up” on the weekends? —> Sleep Requirement and Debt: How do You Know how Much Sleep You Need.
Whole Paycheck No More? Whole Foods to Launch Lower Priced Grocery Chain – sounds good to us!
The best eats for summer! We’re talking on-the-go, no-cook, quick dinner stuff so you can maximize your time spent doing fun things with family and friends.
Even though the boys are pretty adventurous eaters, an apple or banana that’s been beat up in my purse and bruised will not be met with any kind of excitement. “Crunchy fruit” is the perfect food for trips to the park, weekend getaways, or anywhere we might need a quick snack before the crankies hit.
Canned tuna has been king in our kitchen lately! It’s great to have on hand for dinner when you’ve been spectating extracurriculars all evening, or when it’s just too hot to even think of cooking anything. We love it flaked on top of salads!
I don’t always want to have broth on hot summer days, or even a hot drink to mix powdered gelatin into. Vital Protein Collagen Peptides will dissolve easily in cold beverages and provide the same benefits of gelatin that I love (and NEED!).
Paleo Meals to Go have already come in handy for us on our recent trip to Great Wolf Lodge. We brought the hot breakfast cereals in Cliffside Coconut Berry and Palisade Pineapple Mango (along with our hard-boiled eggs).
Your Favorite No-Bake Treats & Desserts!
