Chocolate and Caffeine? Yes, please!

Being a work-at-home-mom and raising three very active children between the ages of 4 and 16, requires a lot of energy! The problem is I don’t always have enough energy to make it through my busy day. By mid-afternoon I often find myself dragging to make it through the rest of my day. I’ve tried energy drinks, but I just don’t like the taste of them. Coffee does the trick for me in the morning but doesn’t seem to help perk me up in the late afternoon.

I recently heard about an energy product called Energems. Energems contains caffeine, chocolate and B vitamins. Energems are made with real milk chocolate and are infused with energy by using caffeine, B vitamins and a proprietary energy mix. These tasty treats come in at 15 calories, which is perfect for anyone that is watching their calorie intake.

 A box of Energems will cost you $2.99 and there are 3 servings in each box. I think this is a great price seeing that one Red Bull will run you over $3!

I really like that Energems are small enough to take with me anywhere I go. I can easily keep these yummy treats in my purse for a quick pick me up, whether I’m running errands, watching my son’s football practice or at the park with my kids. I also like that there is a flavor for everyone. Energems come in three different flavors: Mint Fusion, Chocolate Charge and Peanut Butter Blast.

Netflix Helps Me Keep My Sanity!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Netflix. While this is a sponsored post, I have been a paying customer since 2004!

Being a working, stay-at-home mom is challenging but add in 3 kids home for summer break and it feels almost impossible! I try to get the kids out of the house during the summer but that isn’t always possible. Sometimes I have no choice but to keep the kids in the house for days at a time because my work load is heavier than normal. Keeping 3 kids entertained that are all at different age’s is extremely stressful. I don’t have the time or the patience to break-up arguments all day long.

Netflix offers my family a wide variety of movie options, including the latest TV shows. All of these options are perfect for my family since my kids are all at different ages. My daughter is 4 and my two sons are 8 & 16. As you can imagine all three of my kids want to watch different programs! 

Netflix

Finding my children movies to watch while I am working has literally saved my sanity more times than I can count! I’m able to get my work done and my kids getting to enjoy a good movie, it’s a win-win.

Having three children our budget is tight at times and Netflix also comes in handy as an affordable family night. We all enjoy being able to quickly pick a movie, pop some popcorn and enjoy a movie as a family. 

My family has been enjoying movies on Netflix since early 2004 when you could strictly rent movies through the mail. Now we do all of our movie watching through the easy streaming Netflix offers.

Diet-to-Go Review (Low-Carb Menu)

This is a review of Diet-to-Go, I was given 1 free week of food. All opinions are my own!

You might recall that about two months ago I did a review on Diet-to-Go. If you missed it you can read it here. Last time around I went with the traditional menu. This time I decided to go with the low-carb menu. I am a carb girl but I know that not all of my readers eat carbs. I thought letting everyone see the low-carb meal plan would be beneficial, if you are trying to decide which menu option is the best for you.

What is Diet-to-Go?

Diet-to-Go is a meal service program focused on providing healthy and budget friendly food options. With this program you can lose weight safely. You won’t be required to take any diet pills, skip meals, go on a liquid diet or anything else. Diet-to-Go provides healthy meals that are low in calories and nutritionally balanced. 

With Diet-to-Go you place your order on their user-friendly web-site. You can pick from three different types of meals.

  • Traditional
  • Vegetarian
  • Low-Carb

There are plans with higher calories geared towards men and plans with lower calories geared towards women. You also have the option of choosing a lunch & dinner meal plan or a breakfast, lunch & dinner meal plan.

When you place your order you can even specify if you have allergies or if there is any certain food you dislike. 

diettogolowcarb

What I got?

Breakfast

  • Feta Frittata
  • Steak & Eggs
  • Cheese Omelet
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Spinach Quiche

Lunch

  • Portobello Lasagna
  • Chicken Souffle
  • Fiesta Burger
  • Chicken Fontina
  • Baked Chicken with Goat Cheese

Dinner

  • Grilled Chicken
  • Italian Meatballs
  • Pork Chop Pomodoro
  • Roasted Half of Chicken
  • Chipotle Flat Iron Steak

As you can see you get a lot of food and not just little things that won’t keep you full. These are all real meals that will keep your body feeling satisfied. You do need to add in a few snacks but that wasn’t hard for me to do. I just made sure to have grapes, apples, yogurt and low-calorie ice creams on hand. 

Low-Carb vs. Traditional Menu Plan

Since I selected the traditional menu last time and the low-carb this time, I thought it would only be right to compare the two. I really enjoyed the low-carb breakfast and lunch items over the traditional menu. However, I personally liked the traditional dinner menu better. 

In my last review I stated that Diet-to-Go should offer desserts as part of their package. I still think they should do this (hint, hint, Diet-to-Go). However, I have another suggestion for them this time around. I think you should be able to mix and match your menu. If you could mix and match the menu’s, I would pick low-carb for breakfast and lunch and traditional for dinner. I think this would be a really cool option to give their customers. 

Overall I was very happy with Diet-to-Go and would order from them in the future. My favorite items this time around were the Scrambled Eggs, Chicken Souffle and the Grilled Chicken. My least favorite items were the Baked Chicken with Goat Cheese and the Chipotle Flat Iron Steak. 

You can take advantage of this amazing deal Diet-to-Go is offering my readers!

Fresh Meat & Produce From Zaycon!

Affiliate links may be in this post. You are not required to click on my affiliate links!

Zaycon offers American families an awesome way to save on fresh meat and produce! If you haven’t heard of Zaycon, I highly suggest watching the video in this post and reading up on Zaycon!

2316

How does Zaycon Foods manage to provide such high quality super fresh meat and produce to its customers at such low prices? The answer is strength in numbers. And not our numbers, yours!

Zaycon Foods can sell its products at bulk rate prices to individual consumers and families because our unique sales event business model brings lots of people together, adding all their purchasing power into a combined bulk food purchase. And when you buy as part of a group that’s committing to such a largepurchase, the power is in the hands of the purchaser! It’s the ultimate group buy in terms of both price and consumer empowerment. 

You can pre-select exactly what you want to order from a given Zaycon sales event – sometimes you may want to stock up on our amazing meaty back ribs and sometimes it might be all about the Zaycon bacon – and then, on the day of the sales event, you and a whole big bunch of your neighbors will find yourselves in a nearby parking lot watching as an entire tractor trailer’s worth of high quality natural food is unloaded into all of your cars! You will be amazed at how quickly one of our refrigerated trucks goes from being filled with natural, fresh chicken or hundreds of gallons of grade A non-homogenized milk to being empty and back on its way to the farm! 

A Zaycon Foods truck sales event often lasts less time than you would spend on a trip to the grocerystore, yet you will leave with a whole lot more food than you’d get at the market, and for much better prices, too!

When you use the Zaycon Foods sales event as your preferred place to purchase meats, milk, and any of our other fine products, you get advantages even beyond the bulk pricing that comes with our special sales model. You also have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you’re going to get! A trip to the grocery store can involve wasted time wandering around looking for various foods spread out across the store; at a Zaycon Foods parking lot meat truck delivery (or milk or berries or fish delivery, too!) you have pre-ordered your foods, so all you have to do is show up and wait for our friendly staffers and volunteers to load up your car. 

Also, unlike in the grocery store, the prices you will pay for a Zaycon Foods product are locked in on our website, so you will know how much you are going to spend before you have committed to a purchase. 

At a supermarket, you might pay one price for chicken on one day, and then a higher price on another day. With Zaycon, you decide that you want to order a case of our fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts, you check the price and then you commit to it, knowing that from that moment on, we are committed to getting you your fresh, natural food!

Life is busy! I’m running this site, my new one will be starting up any day now and I have an amazing online job. I’m also a stay-at-home mom raising three kids. There are times when I have so much going on I don’t even think about cooking dinner. It isn’t till I hear my husband or kids say “What’s for dinner mom” that I even think about cooking. During those moments my initial reaction is to run out and grab fast food, which we all know isn’t the best option. I have been trying to stock my house with quick, yet healthy options for those last-minute dinners. I recently came across a product that has been a lifesaver to my busy schedule.

Man of Steel


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Warner Bros.

I am so excited that school is out for summer! During the school year I don’t feel like I get much time to bond with my 16-year-old son. He is always busy with school, golf and friends. It is kind of sad to think that he doesn’t have time for his mom anymore. It is getting harder and harder to talk him into spending quality time with me. Finding creative ways to get him to hang out with me is always at the top of my list. To get my son to agree to a mother – son date he has to be really excited about what we are doing!

I was so excited to hear that Walmart was offering premiere tickets to the Man of Steel movie at 7pm on June 13th! Being able to buy tickets at Walmart is extremely convenient for my family. I do all of my grocery shopping at Walmart, so it was super easy for me to pick up tickets while I’m out doing my normal shopping. Having three kids, running a blog and working for another blog keeps me very busy! I don’t have a lot of spare time to run additional errands. 

If you want to find something to do with your teen son this summer, I highly suggest checking out Man of Steel!

24/7 Frenzy Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I received the following item for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and may or may not differ from yours.

Clothes!

Need I really say more?

If there is one thing I love it is clothes and if there is one thing I hate it’s spending a ton of money on clothes. There was a time in my life when I didn’t care how much I spent on clothes, but three kids later I really need to watch my pennies.

I came across 24/7 Frenzy and loved not only the clothes on their site but also all the styles.

Check out this awesome outfit they sent me for this review.

247frenzy

 

When I placed my order on their website I was afraid the sizing might be off. I haven’t always had the best of luck with ordering clothes online. I usually end up returning things a few times in order to find the right size. 

This dress actually fit me to a T! I could not be happier with how spot-on their sizing is. 

I was also very impressed with the quality of the clothing. I have worn my dress a few times over the last 5 weeks and washed it several times. No issues what-so-ever so far! 

So are you ready to do some shopping of your own?

24/7 Frenzy has offered to give 5 Moms R Bomb readers a $50 gift card to their site. If you are familar with 24/7 Frenzy then I highly suggest checking them out.

Invisalign: Beautiful Teeth Without the Pain


Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was in high school during the mid 90′s and just about everyone I knew had braces. I personally never wore braces but I was always so jealous of my friends that did.

Don’t ask why I was jealous of people who had braces, because I honestly don’t know. Looking back it was pretty dumb to be envious of people who couldn’t chew gum, had wires on their teeth and had to deal with the pain that comes with braces.

ThQ21l2red4NqdIS63eIVCGqwjRCLF2dp9xsehU8jSo

My best friend in high school had the metal braces and she hated it! She could never eat what everyone else was eating, she was always trying to get food out from her braces and the worst part was kids were mean to her. She was given so many horrible nicknames including the dreaded “brace face” nickname.

I recently learned about Invisalign and was blown away by how far braces have come. I have a 16-year-old and thankfully, he doesn’t need braces. However, I can already see that my 8-year-old son will probably end up needing braces. I’m so pleased that there is now another alternative to the traditional metal braces.

I love that Invisalign has used modern technology to help people fix their teeth. We all want pretty teeth and Invisalign is helping us do that! I was also very pleased to hear that this is a pain-free process. I don’t know about you but I have heard some horror stories in regards to traditional braces. I am so happy that the chances of my children having to go through the pain of traditional braces is slim thanks to Invisalign.

With Invisalign the aligners can be removed! This means kids can eat, brush and floss just like normal. Teens won’t have to worry about hiding their smile since the aligners are nearly invisible! What child wouldn’t love to get their teeth straightened without anyone noticing? I was recently at a blogging conference and actually sat and talked with a lady for about an hour and never once realized she was wearing Invisalign. The only reason I even found out was because she started telling someone else that she was wearing the aligners. Right then I was sold!

iziAAsYEBj-n5CvnCtY1v1C4Fy4p1ivaK2x1MDPXDng

Adults and teens now have a modern choice for straightening their teeth. No more wires and brackets required – Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners that gradually move teeth over time. The benefits include no food restrictions, ability to easily maintain healthy dental brushing habits, minimal interference with sports or other activities, and teeth get straightened without most people knowing you are in treatment. Visit the Invisalign website for more information about the clear alternative to braces.

OOFOS Review & Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I was given one pair of OOFOS for free in return for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own and may or may not differ from yours.

OOFOS

About 4 weeks ago I got a pair of OOFOS. I decided to pick out a pair for my husband since he is very picky with which sandals he likes. He isn’t really a sandal type of guy so I figured if liked OOFOS, then they would be a hit with just about everyone. 

Before I get started on our thoughts on OOFOS, I thought I would share a little info the company supplied me with:

Our OOfoam technology absorbs 37% more impact to help relieve stress and fatigue from the body.

The initial try on and rejuvenating experience you have when you slip into our shoes is called Feel the OO. As part of our Make YOO Feel Better mission we are making efforts to bring the Feel the OO experience to more and more communities in 2013. We hope you’ll include this phrase in your review as you talk to readers about our product so that they understand that OOFOS is not just a comfortable shoe, but a recharging experience!

I picked out a black pair for my husband. The shipping was super quick, I think we had them in less than 4 days. When my husband first tried them on he was a little taken back by how soft they were. At first he thought he would just wear them as a slipper around the house. He said they were so soft he just couldn’t imagine walking around in them out of the home.

offos1

He changed his mind on that statement pretty quick! We went to the lake the following weekend and he wore is OOFOS. While everyone else was complaining about their fit hurting from their flip flops, my husbands feet were super comfortable in his sandals. Now he wears them in the house, out of the house and pretty much anywhere he can get away with wearing sandals. 

I have to admit that I am a little jealous that I didn’t pick out a pair for myself. I slip his on every now and then and I think they are hands down the most comfortable shoe you will ever find! 

If you are looking for a good sandal that is comfortable, stylish and affordable make sure to check out OOFOS. Click here to find out Where to buy OOFOS shoes

There are also new colors!! Check out the aqua, plum and navy. Besides the sandal style my husband got there are also flip flops and clogs. All are super cute!

OOFOS has offered one lucky Moms R Bomb reader a chance to win a pair of OOFOS, any style and color that is in stock!
