When I was in college, I used to walk in to my early morning classes with my coffee cup in hand, but I wasn’t sipping a latte or cappuccino, I was sipping a Carnation Breakfast Essentials drink!  To this day, I still enjoy starting off my morning with Carnation Breakfast Essentials, mixed in milk or  milk and fruit for a quick and delicious smoothie.  Today I’m going to tell you a little more about the breakfast drink I love, and I’m going to share a recipe that uses Carnation Breakfast Essentials in a whole new way.  (If the idea of eating cookies for breakfast sounds good to you, keep reading! I have some Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies you will love!) [Read more…]

Friday Favorites – Week 332 – With Breakfast Delights

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week’s Friday Favorites party! This week I’ve been busy preparing for our son’s first day of school next week.  We’ve paid his school fees, picked up his schedule, purchased clothes and shoes, and tomorrow I’m picking up the rest of his school supplies.  With all this back to school preparation, I’ve got breakfast ideas on my mind, so this week I’m featuring a few yummy “breakfast delights.”  Not only would these make for some yummy breakfasts for the kids, but they would also make great mid-morning or mid-afternoon snacks for Mom!  Hope you enjoy them!

Chocolate Pie

Chocolate Pie

I love pie!  I often think of summer as the season for pie, because there are so many that you can serve cold, which is perfect for family picnics, Sunday socials, holiday events, or for a bit of snacking while you’re sitting on the front porch.

Of course, as a dessert fiend, I have many pies that I love to eat, but when pressed, I’d have to say that Chocolate Pie is my ultimate favorite.  Some people also call it Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie or Southern Chocolate Pie…but whatever you call it, it is definitely a classic! It has the perfect mix of dark decadence and sweet yummy goodness.  And the textures of the foamy meringue, chocolate pudding center, and flaky crust make this pie a melt in your mouth, delicious treat.

Hot Chocolate with Almond Milk

Do you struggle to live a healthy lifestyle?  It can be so difficult, especially during the fall months when so many fun holidays, festivities, and social events offer great foods that you can’t help but over indulge.  And if you’re thinking about starting a weight management program at this time, it can be nearly impossible!

But regardless of your lifestyle and diet, you can always take small baby steps toward healthier living!  Just make a few simple changes:  Choose a salad over a burger, make a sandwich at home instead of grabbing fast food, and drink an extra bottle of water a day and one less soda or coffee.

Products like Orgain Organic Protein Almond Milk®  make it easy to make a small change toward healthier living and better weight management. [Read more…]

Building Muscle with EAS

The fall season is almost upon us, but that doesn’t mean we have to let our summer health and fitness routines fall by the wayside.  Didn’t have a summer health and fitness routine?  Well, in that case, the fall season is a great time to start one!

My husband and I are both at a good weight and are in fairly good health.  In my case,  I’m in my early 30s (and holding).  I’ve still got a lot of energy, and I’m fairly strong for my tiny size, if I do say so myself!  But I’m the Skinny Minnie who wants to be Mighty Mouse! Haha!  My husband and I are always working on DIY projects, and I hate it when we get to the parts where I can’t help!

As for my husband, he’s getting ready to turn the big 4-0.  He was actually very sick a few months ago.  And although, he’s mostly recovered, he lost a lot of his muscle strength, and he also struggles with neuropathy, which sometimes keeps him down. He’s always been an active person, and he loves working and fixing things, so I definitely want him to get back in shape, so he can do activities he loves!

Regardless of your age, size, fitness level, and situation, I believe the right supplements and fitness products are a MUST if you really want to get serious about your health and/or fitness levels!  With 42 grams of protein and 24 vitamins and minerals, EAS Myoplex Ready to Drink Shakes are a great choice to help you build muscle and strength.
