Fun Finds For Mom

Kick off the New Year with Healthy Eating + a Sprouts $100 Giveaway!

Happy New Year! I am so excited to start a brand new year with a blank slate. This year is about loving, nurturing, friendship and adventure. And of course, as always, I’m also ready to blast off the holiday bulge. No more noshing on leftovers, cheese and cracker trays, cookies and chocolate. More green smoothies, turkey sammies and thinly sliced Fuji apples bathed in lemon or lime juice.  More yoga, hiking and running. Less sedentary hibernating. For the kids, it’s back to the healthy packed lunch boxes. Hooray for 2015!

If you follow me on Facebook, or are coming from the Sprouts website you may know that I am “starring” in four videos that are part of the Sprouts Every Meal is a Choice Sweepstakes, where you can enter to win a year’s worth of free groceries. I spent an afternoon being followed around by a few kind gents from Sprouts as I shopped, shared some of my favorite products and reasons why I shop at Sprouts, and invited them (and all of you) into my kitchen for a peek into my healthy lunch boxes and packed snacks.

You can see all the videos and enter the Sweepstakes here:

Congratulations to Krissie who was randomly selected as the winner of the Sprouts $100 Giveaway!

And you can enter to win a $100 Sprouts gift card by leaving a comment on this post by midnight MST Wednesday, January 7.

    I love Sprouts! I actually found you thru their sweepstakes video. I am so glad you were featured because I have been looking for ideas for my sons lunches. Sometimes as a busy mom you hit a wall of what to feed your kiddos. You have to make sure theyre getting all the possible nutrition out of their meals but yet still make it fun and colorful to eat. I guess its just an extra plus that that items featured can be found at Sprouts!

    I found your website through Sprouts! I can’t wait to see what your blog has to offer! Thank you for this opportunity!

    I discovered your blog through Sprouts and I’m in love with your blog, i’m not a mom, I’m in college but I prepare my lunch and my lil brothers lunch because my mother doesn’t have the time of making lunches for me and my brothers. One of my brothers is a picky eater so I think the creativity applied to his lunches will play a big role. Thank you very much for giving us this chance, I would love to win because I’m a huge fan of Sprouts but I can’t never spend money there because my mom prefers going to Walmart because she thinks is cheaper and convenient haha I hate Walmart! :)

    I LOVE shopping at Sprouts. I found your website through Sprouts. I am so glad you were featured because I have also been looking for ideas for my daughters lunches and snacks. Sometimes as a mother of three you run out of ideas as to what healthy meals to make/pack. Together with your website and with Sprouts I now have the answers …
