Hello Fresh Review + Giveaway Winners Announced

IMG_5135So if you follow me on Instagram, you probably know we tried Hello Fresh last week.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, Hello Fresh is a nationwide delivery service that brings fresh ingredients for healthy recipes straight to your doorstep each week.

I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed!

The average price per meal is about $9 and I don’t know about you, but I can barely get take out for that price. Yes, it’s alightly higher than if I were to go to the grocery store and purchase these ingredients on my own but the key here is convenience. And I’m all about that!

You get 3 meals per week and can chose between vegetarian, classic or family (aka kid friendly!) boxes and even customize your menu based on your personal food preferences.

The packaging and presentation is simple, clean and super easy to navigate. Everything is completely separated out by meal and each one takes about 30 minutes including prep and cooking.

This week, we had Sautéed Shrimp with Collard Greens and Tomatoes over Cheddar Grits, Pan Seared Chicken with Peppercorn Sauce, Mashed Sweet Potato and Roasted Broccolini, and Pan Seared Gnocchi with Pesto, Green Beans and Sun Dried Tomatoes. All three were absolutely delicious, and I loved that they were under 500 calories each!

Overall we were pleasantly surprised with our experience. If you are looking to try new, healthy recipes, this is a great fit. I was really impressed that Hello Fresh provides proper, healthy portions and uses real, whole ingredients.

Last week, I announced I was giving away FOUR FREE one-week trials of Hello Fresh.

So, here are the lucky winners! (from instagram)

My Take on Protein Powder + A Giveaway!!


Let me start by saying I always prefer real, whole foods over supplements.

There is a lot about protein powder I disagree with, because not all protein powders are created equally. 

Many protein powders are derived from cows that have been exposed to antibiotics, hormones and pesticides. They are also often artificially sweetened and contain other artificial flavors, colors and additives. Protein powders can be extremely unnatural and our bodies just can’t process it.

In a perfect world, all of our protein would be organic, grass-fed, pastured or free range. 

But honestly, sometimes convenience is just as important. It’s a challenge to get in enough protein at each meal, especially at breakfast. Protein powder can really be a beneficial dietary supplement, as long as you chose wisely.

My favorite protein powder and the ONLY one I’ll use these days is Perfect Fit by Tone It Up.


This protein is literally quite perfect:

>> 15 grams of protein per serving

>> Certified Organic, Vegan, Raw

>> Does not contain cane or beet sugar

>> Gluten, dairy, lactose, soy, corn and sugar free

>> No GMOs

>> Sweetened naturally with Organic Stevia

Whether you use protein powder daily to improve your overall health or to enhance your recovery from exercise, the right protein powder can be a powerful source of energy that also boosts your metabolism and immune system.

>> And NOW for the GIVEAWAY!! <<

One lucky contestant will receive a Perfect Fit sample pack!! 3PACK-SPECIAL-2

>> Each Perfect Fit Sample Pack includes <<

  • (1) Perfect Fit Protein Bar (Chocolate Peanut)
  • (1) Packet of Perfect Fit Protein Powder (Chocolate)
  • (1) Packet of Perfect Fit Protein Powder (Vanilla)
  • 10% OFF Personalized Coupon Code
  • Perfect Fit Protein Recipe Card

My Favorite Protein Bars + a Giveaway!!

Whether I’m running out the door or need some quick post-workout fuel, protein bars are my favorite grab and go snack. But be careful – most protein/meal replacements bars are loaded with artificial ingredients and tons of sugar.

ThinkThin protein bars are seriously THE BEST. Not only do they keep you full, but they are all natural and so tasty!!

“thinkThin® products provide natural and delicious portable nutrition to support the health and well-being of busy, active people who care about what they eat. All thinkThin® natural snack bars are based on three nutritional principles: no refined sugar, a good source of protein and gluten free.

I am SO excited to announce my first giveaway! One lucky contestant will receive two boxes of thinkThin Protein bars!! ($40 value)


Enjoy this giveaway – thinkThin products are my fav!


“thinkThin® products contain uncompromised quality ingredients that are a good source of protein, have no refined sugar and are gluten free to provide an excellent source of energy without the punishing side effects of gluten and refined sugar. Our entire product line builds upon this delicious foundation while delivering a more premium nutritional profile than any weight management offering on the market. thinkThin®’s protein bar is the No. 1 ranked natural weight management bar in America (SPINSscan research).”
