Snacking is inevitable and something most of us do without realizing we are doing it. Right? I know you are thinking, wait.. I always know when I am snacking.  But, really.. do you?  I know I don’t and I know that my husband and son don’t.  It just happens.   You walk in the kitchen, grab a handful of nuts, or a piece of fruit, or something off your kids lunch plate.   Maybe you are out visiting friends or doing errands and before you know it you are snacking on that candy from the bank teller window, or grabbing coffee at your local coffee shop and maybe a scone or coffee cake to go with it.  Yup.. mindless snacking, it happens.   But, did you know that all mindless snacking is not bad?  Nope, you can do your mindless snacking and make it healthy snacking.  How you ask?  Well by replacing bad foods with healthy choices like fruit and veggies or yummy snacks like the Harvest Snaps .

With all the fun flavors of the Harvest Snaps, there is one to surely please everyone’s snacking needs or wants.   Choose either the Snapea Crisps or the Lentil Snaps.  Me, my favorite is the Black Pepper Snapea Crisps but my hubby likes the Onion Thyme Lentil Snaps.   But, honestly they are all really good, and a healthy alternative to other snacks that one might find themselves grabbing mindlessly.

My hubby had a buddy over the day these came in the mail.  I opened them and took them out on my deck to get a good picture of them.   Carl (hubby’s friend) asked what the heck I was doing and then asked.. cool, what are those.   I threw him the Caesar ones and he peeled them open.   Well, before long the whole bag was gone.  LOL!!    See, Everyone can be a #HarvestSnapsFan!   Of course, he didn’t eat the whole bag, hubby and I sorta helped him.  Hard not too, as they are very interesting and tasty snacks.


So many to choose from, so little time to snack.   Ok, not really.  Well, there are many to choose from but the time for snacking is any time you feel the urge.     We have traded these for regular chips that we would normally eat for our outdoor down by the lake nights, and I threw some in the camper for when we are on the go.    I know.. you want the info on them right ?   Well what’s inside Harvest Snaps is the interesting part.  The Snapea Crisps are made with all natural peas, 70% to be exact and the Lentil Snaps are packed with 65% authentic lentils and a powerful combination of nutrients.   So, grab a handful and know that your body will soak up Vitamin B, calcium, iron, folate, potassium and dietary fiber.  Add to that a high level of protein and fiber and your will for sure feel satisfied without that sluggish feeling like from other snacks.   Don’t forget ~ They are also gluten-free!

So, grab yourself some yummy Harvest Snaps snacks and tell me what your favorite ones are.
Don’t forget to check out their Lunchspiration fun.

Save on your Labor Day Grocery Shopping #CubYellowTags!


Save on your Labor Day grocery shopping.  #CubYellowTags!

Where did the summer go ?  It seems like it was just winter, at least here in Minnesota.    With the start of school already taking place in some towns and kids off to college and families planning their last vacation of the year, it all just makes me want to cry!  Summer is to short.  I used to say that when I was a kid, because I didn’t want to go to school.  But, as an adult, living where I do, I say it because I dislike winter and want the warm temps and sunshine to last longer than it does.   (pity party time!)

The one thing I do look forward to this time of year is time with family and friends over the upcoming holiday ~ Labor Day.   Having people over and putting out a yummy spread for everyone to enjoy is something I love doing and what makes that way more enjoyable is knowing I can get great prices on all my groceries at Cub.   Yellow tags means lower prices, and lower prices means I can buy more food, or even start a savings account with the money I save on my shopping, and then take a trip when the winter is in full swing.

Cub has lowered prices throughout the whole store on many of the things a person buys daily.
Like these items ~
-Bartlett Pears used to be $1.89/lb, now only $0.99/lb
-Celery used to be $1.29 each, now only $0.89 each
-Sweet Onions used to be $1.29, now only $0.99 each

Check out these great Labor Day savings at Cub.  I have made my list of things to pick up for my weekend feast, have you ?

Don’t forget about the Cub Load to Card program either.  Makes shopping easy.

Family Time and Sunbelt Bakery Bars Makes for a Great Day


 @SunbeltBakery  #SunbeltBakery


A healthy life starts with good nutrition and good nutrition is exactly what Sunbelt Bakery offers everyone.   When the urge to snack arises, as it does many times thru the day, I know that when I reach for a yummy Sunbelt Bakery snack that I am doing my body good.   Made without preservatives, because they don’t need them and neither do we.   Soft, chewy, fruity, wholesome goodness all packed into a wide variety of snack bars.  My favorite is the new Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bar.  I love peanut butter, granola and chocolate chips so this just mixes all my fav’s into a yummy bar.  My second fav is the Raspberry Fruit and Grain Bar.   Oh, I could seriously eat a whole box in one sitting! My husband loves the Almond Sweet and Salty ones.
Check out this huge selection I got to enjoy and share with my family and friends.


The nutrition in these bars is amazing.  Check out these facts ~

Sunbelt Bakery snacks are a source of delicious whole grains! With a line of over 20 granolas and bars, Sunbelt Bakery is dedicated to taste and nutrition in every bite. Here are just some of the excellent attributes of Sunbelt Bakery’s fresh-tasting snacks:

My Mother In Law is a single woman, living alone and hubby and I enjoy spoiling her from time to time.  She is a proud woman so doesn’t like handouts, but we do little things to surprise and spoil her when we can.   Hubby gave her a call a few weeks ago, and invited her to take a day trip with us to Grand Marais, Mn. for the Fisherman’s Picnic.   It is an event that has been going on for years, and hubby and I have never gone.  Sad, as it is only about an hour and a half drive. But, we decided to go and take his Mom as she hadn’t been there for years and years either.   When we showed up at her house I handed her a big bag… she opened it and looked inside to find a bunch of boxes of Sunbelt Bakery bars.   She was so excited!!   Being on a tight income she can’t ever buy herself extra goodies, so she was ticked pink and kept saying thank you over and over.  She opened a box of the Strawberry Fruit & Grain bars and had one right away.  She has messaged me a few times to tell me how much she loves these bars.

We grabbed some of the bars, piled in the car and headed out for the day.  Good thing we grabbed some bars, because the food at the Fisherman’s Picnic was all that icky vendor food.  So, at least we had some yummy, healthy snacks to eat.  After a couple hours of walking around and checking out vendors and stores, we headed for home, but stopped off at Lutesn Mountains first because Mom had never been on a Gondola ride or the fun Alpine Coaster.  Here we are way up high in the sky on a Gondola ride, and then one of her coming down what is called the Alpine Slide.   She had such a great day, and it was nice to not only spend the day with her, but nice to give her some yummy snacks that are healthy and will help her out.  Family time and Sunbelt Bakery bars made for a fun day.




Sunbelt Bakery is also the proud sponsor of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® (NBCF).  Each year starting during October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sunbelt Bakery will support NBCF by donating $1 for every new Facebook “like” and Twitter “follower” they receive during the month, up to $50,000.   Since starting this, 5 years ago, they have raised more than $300,000 to support various breast cancer awareness initiatives and research efforts to find a cure.

Yellow Tags Mean Lower Prices at Cub #CubYellowTags!


Yellow Tags Mean Lower Prices at Cub #CubYellowTags!

Grocery shopping is one of those tasks I love to put off… as long as I can.  But, when I do finally do it you will see me walk into a store with a list in one hand and coupons in the other.  I never shop without those two important things.   And, I never shop without making sure where I shop can offer me the best prices on the things I need to stock my kitchen and home with.  That is why I shop at Cub.

Shopping for things that my family loves and uses daily is a daunting task for me.  I am not one much for shopping in general.  I used to love to shop, then I started getting frustrated due to the rise of prices every where you look.  But, shopping at Cub helps me find things we all love and not break my bank.  Even leaves me a money left over to splurge on a few extra goodies to make my family happy.  Since I like to shop and buy healthy foods (fruits and veggies), I know that I can get the best prices on these items and so many more at Cub.

As I am strolling thru the store I notice the yellow tags under the products and that means new lower prices throughout the entire store.   Combine the new lower prices and the Load to Card program and you have an easier way to shop and save.   Check out some of these price examples ~

-Bartlett Pears used to be $1.89/lb, now only $0.99/lb
-Celery used to be $1.29 each, now only $0.89 each
-Sweet Onions used to be $1.29, now only $0.99 each

Check out this video about how to use your Load to Card program.


I have my card, do you ?   What is your normal grocery shopping trip like ?   Do you love seeing all the new low prices at Cub ?

Save Big at the Meat Department

Save Big at the Meat Department

If you are the one in the household that does the grocery shopping, you know oh to well what the prices on things are.  WAY HIGH!!   Especially meat!   I just don’t like to even look at prices because sometimes it makes me not buy things because I just can’t justify spending that kind of money on something that might not look like it’s worth it.   I generally coupon, but when it comes to buying meat, one hardly ever can find coupons for that unless it’s your local stores coupons.  (which I take advantage of).

I remember years back when my husband and I were just starting out and I would go to the store, come home and he would ask.. what did ya spend.   When I would tell him, he would be so upset.  Not really at me, but at the fact the money was gone on groceries and he never shopped so had no idea what things really cost.   It wasn’t till about 5 or 6 years ago, that he started to shop with me.  NOW he gets it!

Aside from using coupons these days, I also look for those little stickers on the meat that say  ( Reduced !! Please use right away ).
When I see this, I generally grab these packages.   They are totally fine packages of meat, but just need to be used that day or frozen, so in the freezer they go.    I got a heck of a deal on this pile of meat.    All this for under $15 .. That is a steal!!


I generally only buy steak when I can get it discounted as well.   If you look in my freezer the only stuff that does not have the pink “Reduced” tag on it is my tilapia or shrimp… LOL!   Only because I buy those in big bags from my SAMS Club.

Do you buy meat that is discounted?

Time to Update Your Wardrobe  #SpringAtKohls Sponsored

Winter has been dragging on here in Minnesota for what seems like forever!   I am not a fan of winter, and so it being here now into almost April is very depressing.  But, I am taking off on a cruise next week and so I have the spring bug biting me and telling me it’s time to update my wardrobe for my trip.   I am heading to my favorite store tomorrow to get some new duds for myself.   But, before I head out shopping I am checking out Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout because it has great tips on what is trending now in the fashion world.   Lots of perfect things for me, like clothes in the color pink, or cute and comfy dresses and to even take us back to high school, some roll-cuffed denim.    This is perfect for me because my favorite color is pink, and pairing some denim with cute heels and some nice accessories will have me rocking the look on my cruise.   I will be sporting the  SONOMA life + style® Striped Maxi Dress on my cruise next week.   Check out the Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout and tell me what you want to be wearing this season?
