Happy Earth Day!!
To celebrate Earth Day, the wonderful people from Balance Bar and JR Watkins natural cleaning products company, sent me a wonderful “Spring Cleaning Kit.”- to clean up both diet and home.
While people traditionally consider Spring Cleaning to mean window washing, shower scrubbing and more, BALANCE BAR is celebrating the change in season by setting the refresh button and “cleaning up” some of our bad eating habits and introducing some healthier habits – including healthy snacking! –> totally what I am doing with my Advocare challenge!
This was perfect for me to go through the pantry/fridge/freezer with these tips before moving! Cleaned out pantry = less stuff to move = happy husband.
Now, I am not eating the Balance bars while I am doing the challenge because they aren’t challenge friendly (processed and they have dairy). .. but before (and for sure after), I love Balance bars for a quick breakfast on my way to work. Best enjoyed with a caramel skim latte (IMHO). They are gluten free, an excellent source of antioxidants (Vitamins A, C, E), certified kosher dairy and feature 13 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving.
From Balance Bars –> “As with all Balance Bar products, the new Dark line follows the 40-30-30 nutrition principle – a proven formula developed by scientists to help stabilize blood sugar levels that represents the caloric ratio the body needs to enjoy lasting balanced energy and satisfy hunger for longer; 40% of total calories from carbs, 30% from quality protein and 30% from dietary fat.”
And, of course, with the new house, cleaning supplies are much needed. Have you guys ever tried this stuff? Amazing!
I love the white tea and bamboo scent. clean and fresh.
The all purpose cleaner is perfect for the kitchen. .. I love using it on my counters.
And with all natural ingredients, I don’t have to worry about chemical exposure to Luke. It cleans appliances, fixtures, counter tops, floors, tile, woodwork, sinks and walls. You wouldn’t normally think that you would need a cleaner that is appropriate for walls, but once you have a 2 year old. . . it is a necessity!
