Checking in: Meal Prep and Body Beanz Contest

Just checking in, on this Monday morning!

If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram, then you know I just took part in the "Spring to Health" 14-day challenge, hosted by Amber, Jill, and Mari.  It was fun having a different task to complete or document each day!  Check out my Instagram feed to see the lot.

Lately, I've been slacking on the Sunday food prep that I'd started doing in the fall, and as a result, I've been running out of food or having to buy things last minute.  Time to get back in the habit, to make sure I've got healthy, tasty meals ready for the week!  Last night, I did just that.  I prepared a few different food items and made sure I had on stock everything I'd need to pull together meals.

Last night's prep yielded...

Zucchini Carrot Egg Bake

Savory Chicken

Roasted Vegetables

Those, combined with some greens, sweet potato, banana, baked salmon, and Greek yogurt... yep! I'm well on my way.  No roadblocks, this week!

What else is new?

I was recently contacted by a new company called Body Beanz, which takes naturally powerful whole-food superfoods and packages them into nutrient-dense "beanz" to replace your current vitamin/supplement regimen.  The whole point of this new product is that they are not made with any chemical ingredients like other brands; they are made from entirely plant-based formulas.  In each daily dose, you get antioxidents, omegas, probiotics, and fat/sugar digestion aid.

They are launching in early May 2013, and to get us ready, they're hosting a contest!  If you upload photos or videos that represent their tagline--"Happy Body, Happy Life"--, you could win...

  1. A Breville 850 watt juicer for making healthy smoothies
  2. $100 gift certificate to the spa of your choice
  3. A Karuna premium yoga towel
  4. Two months of free Body Beanz

Go to the Body Beanz Facebook Page to learn more and to enter, when the contest goes live at 8am PST, TOMORROW!  (Tuesday, April 16)

I have not yet tried Body Beanz for myself, but they did share the ingredient label with me, and I was fairly impressed. It looks nothing like any other vitamin label I've seen.  Nothing scary.  I'm a fan of anything that goes in the direction of less man-made, more natural.

Lastly, with the warm weather starting to intermittently appear, I dare you to get outside, get some fresh air, and walk!! Do it. Spring is here!

That's all she wrote. Have a great week.

  3. Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Many thanks|
