Carrington Farms “All Good April”

I’m happy to announce that I’ve partnered with Carrington Farms as an All Good April Ambassador.

Carrington Farms been making delicious, 100% organic, non-GMO Health Food Products accessible to nutrition-conscious consumers around the United States since 2000. Since I’ve been eating gluten-free and eating whole, real foods, I’ve felt so much better. Carrington Farms products help make adding quality ingredients like organic flax seeds and coconut oils into our family’s diet simple and affordable.

I received the following Carrington Farms products to review and have enjoyed adding them into our diets: Organic Milled Flax Seeds, Coconut Oil & Coconut Cooking Oil. I use the Flax Seeds in my morning protein smoothie, a simple way to supplement my breakfast with an excellent source of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids (2800mg per serving). They also taste great on top of salads! To make my shake in the morning, I take a handful of frozen strawberries and bananas (organic), a cup of unsweetened almond milk, a scoop of protein powder (I like SFH) with 1 teaspoon of flax seeds. I have a little blender that takes about 30 seconds to chop up the fruit and then I’m ready to go. Sometimes I need to add more almond milk because it’s too thick, but it’s fun to play around with adding different fruits and veggie to your smoothie. Easy way to get a balanced breakfast! Check out the Carrington Farms’ website to get more smoothie ideas.

I’ve been using coconut oil in almost every dinner dish. I throw some in a pan to sauté my veggies and I toss raw sweet potatoes in melted coconut oil to make the kids crispy baked sweet potato fries. Any time I used to use cooking spray or vegetable oil, I now use coconut oil. In addition to using coconut oil in the kitchen, we also use it on our hair and skin. If you’ve spent any time on Pinterest lately, I’m sure you’ve seen the million pins about the billion things coconut oil can do, it’s pretty amazing. You can read more about the health benefits of Carrington Farms products on their site.

Big Apple Circus in Boston {Giveaway}

Spring break is right around the corner and I am already planning my week off with the kids. One of the activities I’m looking forward to the most is taking the kids to the Big Apple Circus, which is in Boston through May 11th for its annual engagement at City Hall Plaza with its all-new show, LUMINOCITY. 

It’s LUMINOCITY —celebrate the vitality of life at the Crossroads of the World! Catch the high-spirits and pulse-racing thrills of the World’s Greatest Circus Artists in one ring under our Big Top, where no seat is more than 50 feet from ringside! Watch rowdy pups perform amazing tricks, double trapeze artists soaring high above, a bashful clown, an irrepressible flimflam man, and a juggler extraordinaire; teeter-board acrobats flying through the air, a cavalcade of magnificent steeds, and a couple of amazing wire-walkers suspended in mid-air. The show runs two hours, including one intermission.

Who wants to win a pair of tickets to the Friday,  April 18th show at 6:30pm to kick of Spring Break with some serious fun?
