Fusion Diet Systems Natural Pea Protein with Whole Grain Rice

As I begin training to hike to the top of Mt. Whitney this summer, my gym routine has gotten a bit harder and much more consistent. I try a new vegan protein product every few weeks. I know they are unnecessary to be a powerful and healthy vegan athlete, but I am lazy about my food. I also hate eating in the mornings. The option to drink my nutrients is very appealing to me for these very reasons. I usually buy my shakes from Aldi's or Grocery Outlet, as they often switch out their brands so I get to try new products all the time, and their products are deeply discounted (such a huge plus for this early childcare teacher). 

I found this Fusion Diet Systems gem last week and have played with my shakes all week, working on what I love the best. I have found that hot coffee, a handful of ice, a splash of plant milk and two big ol scoops of the powder makes for an amazing and fudgey mocha! It is rich in chocolate flavor and depending on the amount of liquid you add, you can prepare a very fluid and easy to chug chocolate protein drink, or a thick and scoop-able chocolate shake with some ice and less liquid. Another bonus I found by mistake.... pudding! The first day I tried this I blended two scoops of powder with about 1 cup of Ripple Chocolate Pea Milk. I couldn't drink it because it was so thick! I scooped some with a spoon and was instantly reminded of chocolate pudding. I threw my shake in the fridge for the day and came home to a velvety, cool chocolate pudding packed with protein for dessert. 

I love the versatility of this product. I also love that it is marked VEGAN with pride across the front of the packaging. With 25 grams of protein and only 150 calories, I have definitely found myself a delicious post-gym meal that will help me reach my hiking and backpacking goals. This Pea Protein shake is also enriched with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) to help promote healthy muscle growth and brain function, which is a concern many people approach  me with when I even mention Veganism. Finding a product like this makes my heart feel super happy!

Bonus:  a portion of all sales is donated to charity.

BratoxINSTA by Brazilian Skin

Brazilian Skin are the makers of age defying products formulated with ingredients grown deep in the Amazon rainforest. Combing the natural wonders of the Amazon and the miracle of science they have developed a skincare line to help combat the signs of aging. You can read more about the ingredients used to make this skincare, that is free of harmful chemicals and safe for all skin types, here

The Brazilian Facelift Kit contains 3 products to nourish, restore and revitalize your skin. These include Bratoxin that is scientifically proven to hydrate, smooth and increase your skin's elasticity. Acai Triple Stem Cell Mask that uses the latest stem cell technology to lock in moisture and absorb antioxidants while you sleep. Bratonista a fast acting cream that eliminates the appearance of puffiness, sagging or crow's feet in an instant. 

I received a tube of Bratoxinsta for review. Although this looks like an inject-able syringe don't worry, it it's not. No need to inject yourself with needles to add some youthfulness to your face.  With Bratoxinsta you can smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and de-puff those eyes in 60 seconds or less. Not only will this tube give you instant results but the powerful combination of stem cell, antioxidants, and peptides will help to improve long term appearance. It can be used under your eyes to eliminate puffiness, around your eyes to tighten and erase those crow's feet, or on your forehead and mouth area to hide those lines. 

Although those dreaded wrinkles and crow's feet have not paid visit to my face yet, I am hoping that by using this cream around my eyes I can prolong their absence a little while longer. I just use a small amount around my eyes and immediately feel my skin tightening. I tested it out on my mom who looks great at her age but has developed puffiness under her eyes. We were impressed at how much it tightened the area under her eyes making them appear less puffy. Her face looked even more youthful and like she had a long restful nights sleep. Unfortunately, my mom is camera shy and she would not allow me to photograph the evidence. 

Brazilian Skin has a 60 day money back guarantee on their products. They are that sure you will be impressed so why not give them a try!

Evanger's Review

In just a couple of weeks my sister will be picking up her new addition to her family, a chocolate Lab puppy. This is her first dog so she has been researching like crazy, and stocking up on all the puppy essentials. Just the other day she texted me to inquire about high quality dog foods, and of course I had to share all about my pet's favorite food, Evanger's.

Evanger's produces food for cats and dogs filled with top quality ingredients made in the USA. In fact their pet food contains human grade ingredients like fresh salmon, liver, whole sardines, chicken, hunks of beef and fresh produce. Their ingredients are 90% sourced within 50 miles and 10% sourced from US farms every day. They contain no soy, corn, wheat, artificial ingredients, preservatives, harmful additives or by-products. With balanced meals for all life stages, ages, and breeds and specially formulated for optimum nutrition you can be sure your four legged family member is eating great. 

No kidding! Check out the ingredients on one of their classic cans of dog food. 

Beef, Water Sufficient for Processing, Liver, Guar Gum

Compare this to many of the other store bought brands that contain a long list of ingredients. Evanger's pet food is simple and wholesome. Meats and produce that is hand packed and never frozen. 

Our dogs Relic and Timber love the stuff. 

Aside from fresh canned foods they also have a line of dry foods. Evanger's version of kibble semi-moist dehydrated food that has been roughly ground and mixed. It is air dried at low temperatures to retain nutrients, enzymes and flavor. 

So, I have passed along some coupons to my sister so she can stock up on some doggy food and I can't wait to meet her new pooch.
