Epic Bars

I have been using TwoGrand for a little while now and absolutely love it. It’s basically Instagram for your food with a weight loss twist. Check out the app if you haven’t it’s been amazing for me. First, in seeing what others are eating, getting new recipe ideas, staying motivated, and learning about new products.
Epic Bars, is one of those new products I learned about through TwoGrand. I won’t eat them, well maybe one day I’ll try the turkey one, but I thought they’d be perfect for my husband. They are gluten free paleo and grass fed. They come in 4 flavors Bison, Beef, Lamb, and Turkey. I bought the 4-pack sampler off Amazon for the husband to try out. I figured if he liked them they were another alternative to beef jerky and also a good post-workout snack for him if he couldn’t make a protein shake. Since he’s getting ready to head back overseas we are starting to get all of his supplies together again. Anyway, the bars are a bit expensive but of course the more you buy the cheaper they become. But, before I bought a case I wanted to make sure they were something he’d eat. He gave them his seal of approval.
Well, thanks to TwoGrand today and somebody’s post I was able to get them from Amazon for $.24 a piece. Yeah they are usually about $2.50 a piece. I was like what!!!!! The price was only on one flavor of the bars but that’s okay we’ll buy the cases of that flavor for that price. I quickly ordered 6 cases and am now waiting for the delivery of the Epic Bars which will be here sometime next week. They were not Prime eligible but who cares for that price. Now, I’m still questioning if I’m actually getting cases or just an individual bar, but the description clearly states case. We shall see when they arrive. Either way the husband will have a few more Epic Bars.

New Stuff Thank You Amazon Prime

Just got my 3 new cookbooks I ordered and they came a day early. Kind of excited about that.
I’ve already quickly looked through them and used my post-it flags on several recipes that looked interesting. Of course I will go through them more thoroughly when I have more time and I’m sure find several more recipes to try out.

But, these are the 3 newest cookbooks to be added to my collection.
It was like Christmas at my house today, because as well as my cookbooks coming my Rx Bars came. I ordered these bars as they are Paleo and Whole 30 approved and I will definitely be doing another Whole 30 come March 1st. See already have my March challenge picked out, just got to pick out February’s. Need to get on that ASAP as there are only a few days left. Anyway, I haven’t tried one of the bars yet but I purchased the Coconut Cacao ones. We shall see. If I like them I’ll be ordering another flavor to try out. And, I didn’t even forget about the husband, I ordered him the mix pack of Epic Bars. I won’t eat them but I thought it’d be something good for him to try and if he likes them then we will definitely be getting him more.
I’m loving this new healthy, clean eating way of living and have been discovering so many cool new things. And a lot of that has to do with Pinterest, which is where tonight’s dinner comes from. I made zucchini lasagna which I’ve done in the past but kind of winged my own recipe, where as I decided to follow this one today, you can check it out here.
I’ve written down the instructions for the husband on how to cook it as he will be home before me tonight.
And, let me tell you TwoGrand has been an amazing app, it’s basically Instagram for your food. But, people are posting such awesome food. And, you can ask them for the recipes and they share. I’ve seen a couple of things that I’ve saved to my favorites so that I can try them out. And, also you learn about new things. Namely Epic Bars that I just bought for the husband, and Calm the Anti-Stress Drink, it’s a magnesium supplement. Which is funny because I asked about this product and a day or 2 later in the news was a big article about how most people don’t get enough magnesium. I just purchased some and tried it for the first time last night. I’ll give it a few days and let you know what I think of it, so be sure to check back in for that review.
Anyway I’m off to yoga and then some belly dancing. See you all tomorrow.

It’s The Little Stuff That Gets Me Excited

First I have to say I love Amazon, I mean really if you can’t find it there does it even really exist? Add in Amazon Prime and well life is AMAZING!
Anyway, I ordered a couple of items from Amazon and they arrived yesterday morning and I was like a kid in the candy store.
The first was glass storage containers. With all of the cooking I’m doing I’m using my storage containers like crazy. I have a ton of plastic containers that are all BPA free, but I still don’t like to use them for freezing things because I’m not a fan of microwaving plastic. So, I found these containers that can go fridge, oven, microwave, and freezer. SCORE!!!! I usually get Pyrex but I really don’t need anymore baking dishes and when you buy the big boxes you always end up with some, so I figured I’d give these a whirl.

That’s the set I just bought.
And, I’m really excited about these portion control bowls I found. They have the measuring incriminates on the bowl so when I’m doing fruit or whatever I no longer have to get out measuring cups to measure and then dump it into a bowl. One less dish is always a good thing in my book.

Love this idea. And, with 4 of them I’ll be all set.
And, now for some exciting news. I’m starting a new fitness class tonight and can’t wait. It’s offered 2 nights a week however, on Tuesday nights in at Krav so I couldn’t attend the first night. But, the reviews have been amazing. Everyone loved it and said it was great. You’ll have to check back tomorrow to find out what the class was and what I thought of it.
