MilkBite Milk and Granola Bars

We get to review lots of different things here. However, sometimes we come across the a product that everyone in my house likes (which is few and far between). MilkBites is one of those products. My husband even told me to get more of them! That never happens!!

MilkBite is a snack bar that combines real milk with whole grain granola. It provides the same amount of calcium as a 8 oz glass of milk. For someone who is lactose intolerant like me, that is beyond awesome! They also include 5 grams of protein, 7 grams of whole grains, and is a good source of vitamin D and fuber. There are no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, color, or preservatives. MilkBites are available in chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, and mixed berry and are available at your local grocery stores for $3.49 a box.

MilkBites are a great snack morning, noon, or night! We loved them and you will too!

Eggo FiberPlus Waffles Giveaway

This giveaway is now over. The winner is kolpin. Congrats!

I’m all about easy breakfasts. I’m getting two kids ready for school by myself, and I like to make sure they eat before they head out the door. That means I’m not making a 4 course breakfast. However, Eggo products are something they both enjoy eating!

We recently got to try out Kellogg’s Eggo FiberPlus Waffles. I’ve got one word for you: YUMMY! Or as my three year old said, “yummy in my tummy”. The Eggo FiberPlus Waffles provide an excellent source of fiber — you get 35% of the daily recommend value in every serving. The FiberPlus Waffles comes in two flavors: Buttermilk and Chocolate Chip. The buttermilk variety offers 35% of the recommended daily value of calcium (since I am lactose intolerant, I’m always looking for products that give an extra kick of calcium. I can’t tell you how happy I am to see this with these waffles!), and the chocolate chip variety provides 20% of the recommended daily value of the antioxidants vitamin E and zinc. Both varieties are also an excellent source of 10 or more vitamins and minerals.

Since my family and I love these so much, we have arranged for one lucky reader to try these also! I have arranged for one of you to win a box of the the Chocolate Chip Waffles and also a box of the Buttermilk ones too! Here’s what you need to do:

Progresso Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

I like soup especially here in Chicago in the winter time. Nothing is better to warm you up from the inside out and if it is low in calories, even better! Did you know that Progresso Soup can help curb your hunger, and it is available in 40 delicious flavors that have 100 calories or less? With hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn and rice, and flavor-packed vegetables like tomatoes, carrots, and peppers, Progresso Soup varieties offer a good source of fiber and a full serving of vegetables. I always feel like Progresso Soup is the “adult” soup on the market. It is filling. It is good and very flavorful. It is just an added plus that it is low in calories.

Now, to help kick off a new outlook on the New Year, Progresso is excited to announce the return of the “Souper You™ Debut” contest! From January 3rd through March 16th, you and your readers can visit Progresso on Facebook to enter for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City from May 20th-22nd. The prize includes roundtrip airfare, a two-night stay in an NYC hotel, a full makeover, a guided wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York City department store, and $1,000 in spending money. Once the 10 finalists are announced, you can visit Progresso on Facebook from March 30th through April 13th to vote for your favorite.

You can also visit the Facebook page to download a coupon for $1.00 off four (4) cans of Progresso Soup and to check out makeover videos provided by MyStyle.com and the Style Network. Be sure to also “Follow” Progresso on Twitter to keep up with the latest news from Progresso.

Since I have enjoyed the soup so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Progresso “Souper You Debut” gift pack that includes a VIP coupon for a free can of Progresso soup, as well as a yoga mat, water bottle, set of aerobic bands, sport headband and two sport wristbands.
