4X Pro-B – Probiotics in My Life #DigestiveCare #CBIAS

4X Pro-B Logo

I recently had the opportunity to shop on Costco.com for 4X Pro-B. I had been curious about probiotics for quite a while. I had eaten Activia a few times and never quite realized the benefits. Of course I later learned that probiotics are something that you must take consistently every day for them to really help you and take effect. So I jumped at the chance to participate in this mission. WHAT IS 4X Pro-B? 4X Pro-B is an active {Read More}

KFC Logo

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the KFC Blogger Experience in Louisville, Kentucky with 14 other bloggers. I grew up eating KFC and in fact my family still calls it Colonel Sanders. My mother even claims that my family met the Colonel himself at an event in Kentucky back in the late 70’s. I was a baby, of course. I like KFC. And my entire family likes KFC as well. I love that the chicken that {Read More}

Healthy Habits for A Lifetime Oral Care Blogger Challenge #healthyhabits

Tooth decay Facts

Oral care is something that has long been a concern of mine. I know that healthy teeth and gums are incredibly important. I didn’t become concerned until I was in my early 20’s.

I flossed daily. I used mouthwash and a tongue scraper daily {Read More}

Bringing Breakfast Back #Wholesome


Breakfast has always been a tough thing for me to do. Especially in adulthood. I mean, I know that I SHOULD eat breakfast but knowing that you should do something and actually doing it are two very different things. So I recently made a  promise to myself. This year I really want to concentrate on my health. To me, that begins with breakfast. I need to make certain that everyday I am eating one of the most important meals of {Read More}
