J&D Foods Review #ad

J&D Foods

So a few weeks ago I received a very nice email asking if I would like to try out some croutons from a place called J&D Foods. Yes, please! J&D Foods offers a wide range of products from food to bacon scented pillow cases. I really should of done my research and asked them to send me one of everything they offer(hint hint). I was sent 4 different crouton's to try out, hey I like salads-no problems!

So what did I get?
Bacon, Everything, Pretzel Bread and Tomato Basil Croutons. The croutons are well packaged and double bagged to make sure they arrive to you freshest possible product. The crouton's are large, no crumbs here. The weight of each bag is 4.5 oz and the calorie count is 30 per 6 croutons. Awesome! As many of you know I am currently on a diet plan and these work great for me. So the 1st thing I did was try them, what else did you think I was going to do? MISTAKE!! Sure, these croutons are meant for salads but they are marvelous right out of the bag-no lettuce needed! You can not eat just one, I dare you to try.
The Bacon Croutons are packed full of smoky ham flavor.
The Pretzel Bread Croutons a crispy and fresh.
The Tomato are like a fresh picked summer ripe tomato.
The Everything Crouton are bagelicious, if they could find away to add in cream cheese that would be aweome. Until them we can alwas dip them!
All 4 of these gourmet handmade croutons are packed with flavor and goodness.

I would of loved to use the crouton's in a casserole, but sadly they never stood a chance and were consumed rather quickly. I could just imagine how they would taste in a squash casserole. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

These product would make the perfect gifts for the foodie in your like and they even offer gift sets.





YOUR SALADS JUST GOT MORE DELICIOUS.

Recently, we got tired of salads tasting like… well, salads. So we combined the great taste of bacon with the perfect crunch of super premium gourmet croutons. It turned out that Bacon Croutons were so good that we found ourselves doing more than adding them to salads. We put them in soups. We dropped them in chili. We crunched them up and used them in mashed potatoes, meatloaf, fried chicken breading, casseroles, green beans and stuffing. And we inhaled them as (healthy) snacks. The possibilities are endless.

As if you needed another reason to “pig out,” Bacon Croutons are vegan and kosher, contain 0g of trans fat, are naturally flavored and have no cholesterol or preservatives.

The newest members of our innovative gourmet crouton family are:
J&D’s Tomato Basil Croutons – try them with your tomato soup
J&D’s Pretzel Bread Croutons - a tasty snack or stuffing
J&D’s Everything Croutons - just like an Everything bagel, with onions, garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and sea salt

All of our croutons work on any salad, and start with only the finest ingredients. You’re just one bite away from happiness!

Do you clean your pups ears? If not, you should. Brave Beagle is a great way to maintain and
improve the overall health, comfort and well being of your best friend. Brave Beagle is a safe and effective way to clean your dogs ears. It's easy to use and very gentle, but it may take some getting used to bu your dog at first. There is really no prep needed besides cotton balls and well a dog. But other then that you just wet the cotton ball with the solution and wipe the inside of your dogs ears clean. The solution has a clean, fresh scent that is not over powering, it's very pleasant. I have been using it on my dogs weekly now with great results. The first time we used it there was tons of black gunk on the cotton ball. My dogs no longer scratch at their years or have that bad smell. I love the fact that it is none drying or irratating, this is a great product that I highly recommend to any home that has a dog.



Product Description
Your dogs are special. So are their ears A dog's ears are dark and moist. Left untended they are the
perfect place for fungus, bacteria and parasites to grow and thrive. When your pet's ears are dirty, infected and itchy they are miserable and in pain - and may suffer in silence or scratch til they're raw. Nobody wants their pup to be uncomfortable!

How can you prevent this?Keep your dog's ears clean and free of bacteria and other nasties with regular cleansing to:
- remove debris and wax
- dry the moisturized environment
- eliminate odors
- reduce redness and scratching
- limit expensive trips to the vet to deal with infections or itchiness

Why use Brave Beagle Ear Cleaner?We developed our ear cleaner after working foster dogs with the same issue - stinky, infected, itchy ears. We worked with multiple manufacturers looking for one gentle and natural enough we were confident in using it every few days, but effective enough to keep dogs clean and misery-free. The solution we developed provided us with both, allowing our own brave beagle to
focus her attention on squirrels, sleeping in sunbeams and chasing scents.

We researched this product thoroughly and stand by its effectiveness and safety. It's made in the USA, is all natural, and brings demonstrable comfort and health.

It's a new week, and a week it has been! My phone broke so I have no photos to share. I ordered a new phone and it arrived dead and will not charge. My 4th month of frozen food arrived! I did manage to make an unboxing video with my kindle fire. After watching this video, I really notice I need to mop the floor. I am always excited for the frozen box because I like the frozen food best. I got a carrot cake whoopie pie in this months frozen shipment. I hold out all hope that it will meet the high standards set by it's sister the red velvet whoopie pie.


Another pound down! I have hit the 25 pound lost mark! It's really hard for me to believe that I have just 13 more pounds to go and I will be under 300 pounds. I have not been under 300 pounds in 13 years. Since I became pregnant wth my first child. I can honestly say I still don't feel or see the weight loss when I look in the mirror. Every day it gets easier for me to make the right choice and hold myself accountable for the foods I put in my mouth. The struggle is real people, and portion control is the key!
So this week's exercise has been: swimming and picking peas

Here we go! So the last 2 weeks I have upped my calorie intake because I was eating nowhere near the amount I should have while on Nutrisystem. I know that seems easy enough right? Well, no it's really not. First off, it's so hot! I know it's hot everywhere, but it is truly a different kinda hot in South Georgia. The heat just makes me not want to eat at all. Then when I finally get hungry I just want junk or that is how it's been in the past. This year I am keeping lots of fresh fruits around to try and combat that. Second off, it's HOT! It's just too hot to get out and walk. Even in the afternoons it's around 95+ outside. So I spend most of  my exercise time in the pool swimming because the water is cool. Also, pool time is a great way to spend some time with the kids.

So if you are keeping up with my blog you know that this past week was my daughter's birthday and also I took the kids to the movies. Sarah picked cheesecake as her birthday cake. Not gonna lie, I had a slice and it was good. But here's the good thing, I stopped at a slice and I was more than satisfied. On to movie day, I had no popcorn, soda or candy at the movies, I was a good girl. I was thinking about sneaking in a NS snack, but I didn't. After the movie the kids wanted to go out to eat so I took them, I was a good girl, I ordered a kids meal! Much to my SHOCK I lost 3 pounds this past week! **Happy dance** I am proud if I do say so myself! I am very blessed to have lots of support from my husband and kids through this 3-month journey. I also got a very exciting email yesterday saying that I was approved for a 4th month on the blogger program. Needless to say I am over the moon about this and I am very excited and beyond blessed to have this opportunity extended another month...so until next week, eat healthy my friends!

Schools out for summer, how will your kids spend their time? #SummertimePlay



IPEMA’s Voice of Play

facebook


My children have been out of school for a couple of weeks now and

as always they have reached the point where they are bored, and there is nothing to do. If you are a parent you know it's bound to happen. My family is blessed to live in an area that has a few different playgrounds and also a splash pad playground.  


Living in south Georgia, I have to say the splash pad playground is all 3 of my children's favorite place to spend their summer time playing! It's a fun place to explore, run, play and stay cool all at
the same time. Our local park keeps the playground equipment clean and well maintained. I can remember going to the same park as a child and having cookouts and playing. I love the fact that my children now get to experience the same things I did. 


Our local park also sponsors events to get the community involved and to bring the kids out and play and learn more about nature. So, how will your children spend their summer? Will it be inside playing video games, on the computer, a tablet or a phone? Or will they get out and play? The benefits of play are physical, social, emotional and cognitive. June 21st is the first day of summer, what better way to spend it them taking your kids on a trip to the local playground? 
Please visit IPEMA’s Voice of Play for more information of the benefits of play!

Black Charcoal Applicator Makeup Blender Sponge #beauty



Buy on Amazon
#beauty

What I say:
As you can see from my photos, my sponge did not come with the top on the travel case. Other than that very tiny hiccup, I am very pleased with this blender. Having used other high dollar makeup blenders on the market, I can honestly say this ranks right up there with those. It's easy to use and to keep clean. When looking for a sponge you want one that holds up to washings. It also cuts down on foundation waste because it does not absorb it all into the sponge. It's very gentle on the skin so it is perfect for everyday use.  The angles on the sponge make it great at applying makeup precisely where it is needed. It allows for foundation to be applied smoothly to the skin for a more natural looking finish. The sponge also has no harsh scent so it can be used around the eye area without issue.


About the Product
Our premium Black Charcoal makeup blender beauty sponges are made from the highest quality materials we could find. No expense was spared in the making as we wanted to provide the most superior makeup sponge we could offer.
  • Cute precision makeup application sponge.
  • Soft & ideal for delicate skin.
  • Revolutionary droplet shape allowing access to
  • Armored travel case included to store and protect this makeup sponge.
  • Easy to clean and is reusable.

It's just not a good week...I kinda feel in a funk. I have lost NOTHING! I just dunno what's going on. I am sticking to the plan, swimming and walking every day. And this week I have lost nothing. I know I should call my counselor, but frankly I just don't wanna talk about it. I just hope I feel better about all this next week. I will admit that right now I just feel like, what's the point if nothing is happening? 
I was told by my sister that she sees that I have lost it in my face and shoulders. Blah, but this week I feel like she might just be saying that because she knows I am on the program. I am just lost this week....to be continued.
