Healthy Snacks with Arnold® Healthfull® Bread Challenge & a Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Arnold® Healthfull® Bread.  The opinions are my own.

Arnold Healthfull Bread Giveaway

Every day we struggle to adopt healthy living standards, but it’s actually amazing how easy it can be if you just take baby steps!  One very important baby step (and giant leap) you can take is switching your white bread to a 100% Whole Wheat Bread like Arnold® Healthfull® Bread.

I was recently challenged to try Arnold Healthfull Bread.  I took up the challenge because I’ve always try to convert my husband to whole wheat bread.  Anytime you’re at risk or diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, or obesity, one of the first things doctors say is to cut sugar out of your diet, including the sugar in white bread and to start eating whole grains.  While hubby and I are still “relatively young” and in pretty good shape, I say it’s never too early to start trying to adopt healthy habits!

Chipotle Chicken

With the hot summer weather, comes summer grilling!  Like many households, here at Simply Sweet Home, my husband is the Grill King!  Not only does he do a great job of cooking up meats to perfection, but he is also a master when it comes to creating custom sauces and marinades.

Just like our Southern summers, when it comes to sauces, we like it hot!  Over the weekend my hubby grilled up some delicious chicken, featuring a hot, bold, and savory sauce that doubles as both a marinade and a dipping sauce for entrees and appetizers!

V8 V-Fusion Energy and 5 Energy Boosting Foods


Are your lazy days of summer not so lazy?  For a lot of moms, the summer season is anything BUT lazy!  Since we have an older kid, I don’t have to worry about planning activities for him during the day, but I still have to make sure he’s taken care of and has lunch and snacks for the day (and this is in addition to my other regular duties of making dinner, working, and taking care of the house).

And then in July when band camp comes around, look out! For my husband and I, band camp starts early, ends late, and is basically a day of driving back and forth.  Since I do most of my work at night and generally get very little sleep, a day of driving back and forth is definitely not good for me!  By the end of last year’s band camp, I think I was more tired than Noah!

I’ve always been known as an energetic person…people are usually amazed at how much energy I have, but as I’ve entered my 30’s I am starting to feel (dare I say it?) older and with everything I’ve got going on, my energy levels are sometimes zapped to virtually nothing!  But I’m working to combat this!  One key way to boost energy is with Energy Boosting Foods!
