I’ve partnered with Green Giant, Optimum Nutrition, Vitafusion and L’il Critters as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.Fry, party of five
Wellness. It’s my word for 2020. My goal for the new decade is to take better care of myself and my family.
Three simple ways I’m bringing wellness into our daily life is by trying new foods like Green Giant Cauliflower Veggie Hash Browns, beginning an Optimum Nutrition product regime for me and my husband, and introducing Vitafusion vitamins to the entire family.
Green Giant Cauliflower Veggie Hash Browns
Have you noticed a trend over the last few years of swapping cauliflower in place of other starches? During my last grocery shopping trip to Walmart (aka a short mommy vacation) I came across these Green Giant Cauliflower Veggie Hash Browns While browsing the freezer section and I knew I had to try them. Breakfast has always been is an area I struggle in when it comes to choosing options for us. Having these in the freezer has been a life-saver.
I’m working hard to be more mindful of artificial flavors and fillers inside the food I serve my family. I love that these veggie hash browns contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They have an amazing flavor and a crunchy bite just like a traditional hash brown and each serving contains 1 full serving of cauliflower! We eat them mostly at breakfast time, but the kids have been known to eat them for lunch or dinner too. Green Giant also has other choices to help you swap those veggies into your diet too including Green Giant Cauliflower Gnocchi.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey & Amino Energy
Gold Standard Whey is an essential protein source (24 grams of it) to help meet daily protein requirements. The anytime formula is great before or after exercise, between meals or even with a meal. Literally, any time of the day. It is tasty and easy to mix.
This protein powder contains only 120 calories, 1.5 grams of fat (or less), 2 grams sugar (or less), plus it is gluten-free. It has made the perfect breakfast replacement to help me and my husband stick to our goals wellness goals. Gold Standard Whey also has 5.5 grams of naturally occurring BCAA (for muscle growth) and 4 grams of naturally occurring Glutamine and Glutamic Acid (for recovery) which makes this perfect for before or after a workout.
It comes in three flavors: Double Rich Chocolate, Vanilla Ice Cream, and Strawberries and Cream. Here’s a tip: add a scoop of peanut butter to the chocolate. It is delicious.
Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy offers a combination of 5 grams of Amino Acids, 0 grams of sugar, and 100 grams of Caffeine to support energy, focus and muscle recovery before, during, and after exercise.
Each tub includes 20 servings and comes in two flavors – Grape and Fruit Fusion. I really enjoyed the grape and could definitely feel the energy boost and appreciate that you can control the intensity of the product by deciding the number of scoops to put in your water to fit your individual needs.
Vitafusion and L’il Critters
As part of our wellness goals for the new year, my family and I have started taking Vitafusion vitamins. I We chose Women’s Supercharged Multi for me, the Men’s Powerful Multi, and L’il Critters Complete Multivitamin gummies for the kids!
