Let's Talk Soy Protein and Children and a Giveaway

With so many poor food choices available to our children this holiday season, it's nice to see some healthier options that they'll actually eat.  

We've long been fans of MorningStar Farms products and have incorporated them into our "Meatless Mondays".  It's something I started a few years ago when hubby's cholesterol began to rise.  It was a simple change but one we've come to embrace.  MorningStar Farms offers a wide variety of TASTY Meatless Monday options sure to win over the pickiest eaters.  Products packed full of protein which is crucial for optimal nutritional health.
My kids really like MorningStar Farms Chik'n Nuggets and Hubby and I never pass up a wrap or sandwich made with MorningStar Farms Chik Patties and fresh green leaf lettuce.  Great taste and less fat than some of the other chicken nugget and patty offerings at our local grocer.  MorningStar Farms Sausage Links and Patties are the secret to my sausage and rigatoni recipe revamp.  I just switched out the heavy fat pork for healthier MorningStar Farms Sausage and my family is treated to a meal packed with protein.  I just may share this recipe in an upcoming post.

For those of you who may not be in the know about soy protein, allow me to enlighten you:
· Soy protein is a high‐quality, plant‐based protein derived from soybeans
· Soy protein supports healthy growth and development
· Because of its ability to impact satiety, soy protein can help in managing a healthy weight in children
· Soy protein is a healthy alternative for children with milk, egg or peanut allergies
· Incorporating high-quality proteins, such as soy protein, into children’s diets supports immune health

In addition to a coupon for a free MorningStar Farms product, I also received samples of Nogii Kids and A3 bars and a cute, little thermal tote.

I'm ALWAYS looking for healthy snacks for my kids so being able to sample A3 bars and Nogii kids bars was a welcome opportunity to try something totally new.  To assist with this review, I recruited the middle of Los Tres Amigos for this review as he is the foodie of the group.

The Nogii Kids bars com in a clear package so my kid could see ALL of the bar's goodness.  By "goodness" I mean chocolate chips.  My son said it looked like a "chocolate chip rice krispy treat".  He really liked it.

My Thoughts:  The NoGii Bar was very dense but quite tasty.  Tons of semi-sweet chocolate chips and just the right amount of amount of sweet for my liking.  Had to check out the packaging and was glad to see NoGii Bars contains absolutely no high fructose corn syrup.  None.  Zilch.  Nada.  

Nogii Kids Bars are healthy, gluten-free, and packed with protein.  

Next up was the A3 Honey Graham S'Mores bar. One bite left me trying to figure out why I've never had these before.  OMG!  This was absolutely delicious!  My generous child was a little reluctant to share once we opened the package. Seriously, the sweet smell of honey graham and chocolate just oozes from the package.  

A3 Honey Graham S'Mores bars are packed full of goodness plus they are also:
  • Low in fat
  • High in protein
  • Gluten free
  • Zero cholesterol
  • Low in sodium
  • Full of ingredients I can pronounce
  • Did I mention DELICIOUS!!!
Snack healthier!  Check out healthier snack options like MorningStar Farms, Nogii Kids and A3 which are packed full of high-quality proteins, including soy protein.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
