New DAY Resolutions Snacking Healthy and Feeling Great

Can you believe 2016 is almost over?  Get ready, we're just days away from all those 2017 New Year's Resolution posts.  I don't make New Year's Resolutions.  I mean every day, heck every moment is an opportunity to start fresh.  Besides if you want to eat healthier, what are you waiting for.  

I'm not saying give up the chocolate chip cookies, I'm saying try a healthier chocolate chip cookie mix.  Bake your own using Amongst Friends - Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix.  You just need 1 egg, vanilla and butter and bake something special.  These homemade tasty treats are a healthy choice thanks to the whole grain oat flour and cane sugar.  You won't miss the chocolate as they're full of tasty chocolate chips.

Like smoothies?  Add some PBfit Peanut Butter Powder to your smoothie and amp up the flavor.  Or you could be like my middle kid and just add a little water and make the best PB and J sandwiches ever.  He loves this stuff.

I even found a way to make my great grandma's homemade brownies a little healthier by swapping out the traditional cocoa with Wild Foods - Wild Chocolate Powder.  Same measurements as her traditional brownies, but a lot healthier and tastier.

My great grandma would visit us each year and stay from November until March.  I remember her silver dollar pancakes and homemade fudge brownies.  I always thought she should write a cookbook because she was the most amazing cook ever.  Over the years, in my quest to eat a little healthier, I have tried several variations of her recipe including swapping the oil with applesauce, using different oils, even trying different cocoas.  I can't wait to try baking her homemade fudge brownies using Wild Food - Wild Chocolate Powder.  The package smells so yummy!

Speaking of snacking, have you tried kale bars?  Mediterra makes a pretty tasty kale and pumpkin seeds bar.  I like looking at a food and recognizing the ingredients.  

So, let's make a pact to forego the new year's resolutions and instead commit to doing something healthy each and every single day.

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…
