Blueberry Roasted Carrots {3 Dishes with Frozen Wild Blueberries}

My kiddos love blueberries, but we had never tried frozen Wild Blueberries until we were asked to try them on behalf of Moms Meet. We received product for review and, just like my unfiltered kiddos, all opinions are honest and my own.

Have you ever made a whole meal with wild blueberries?

I took on the challenge of creating 3 Dishes with Wild Blueberries and each turned out more amazing than I could imagine!

So far, I’ve shared how to make an awesome Blueberry Balsamic Reduction that you can use for each of the three recipes, and a Blueberry Pecan Salad that will be the perfect refreshing salad for summer cook outs!

Today I have an amazing side dish – roasted carrots with that sweet and tangy Blueberry Balsamic Reduction.  The perfect way to add blueberries to your roasted veggies!

This is hands-down the best cooked carrot recipe out there!

A better week for my weight loss, a not so good week for sick little ones

It’s Friday!

Is anyone superstitious?  Don’t check the date! As the only ones with very little kiddos, we’re missing out on a great weekend at the cabin with 13 (bum bum bum…) family members.

We did have a fantastic time up there last weekend.  My eating was horrible.  That place is full of sweets, treats, and amazing meals.  We did, however stay pretty active.

Sweetheart Nuggets {Recipe, Review, and Giveaway with Harvestland chicken and Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts}

February is here!  Time to go out of our way to show our love for our family and friends.

Out of love for my kiddos, I’ve been trying to put some of my frugal ways aside to ensure that I am feeding them some of the best foods possible.  Products from companies such as Harvestland and Manitoba Harvest help me to feed my family foods that I can feel good about.

I have a fun recipe to share made with Harvestland Chicken Breasts and Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts and a GIVEAWAY of both, so you can make it yourself!

I can’t believe it has been two full months since WOW Summit!  The holidays really make the time go fast!

WOW Summit Swag and Prizes 2014

I can’t even tell you guys how much I took away from WOW Summit!  I learned so much about healthy living for my family and some amazing companies who put so much work and passion into creating quality products so I can help give my family the best.  I’m so thankful to Moms Meet and Kiwi Magazine for helping me find these products and testing them out first. Immediately after WOW Summit in Orlando I went to stay for an extended vacation in another part if Florida which is why you haven’t seen much of a recap yet – it’s also why my giveaway is not quite complete yet.  

Keep checking back before the giveaway ends December 15th to reveal more prizes!

WOW Summit: Sneak Peek {WOW Summit Recap}

WOW Summit 2014 was AMAZING!

It was so much more than I was hoping for and I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to meet the wonderful people of Moms Meet, the inspirational and informative speakers, the fantastic sponsors, and all the other amazing moms!

If you’ve ever been to a conference, you can relate to the overwhelming desire to write about everything, and the inevitable blog absence that comes from not knowing where to start.

I figure I should just jump right in by at least giving you a bit of a teaser until I can wrap my head around it all.

First, there’s the Caribe Royale resort!

Caribe Royale Orlando Florida, WOW Summit 2014

So gorgeous!

There was also a great little kids area with a small pool and playground.

There were so many amazing talks. I left full of information, excited about new-to-me products, and inspired!

Believe me, I have so much to say about it all, there will be WOW Summit Recaps for days. But it’s all completely interesting and amazing stuff! There might even be some freebies for ya!

Speaking of freebies, I left with two of the biggest, heaviest bags ever FULL of stuff!! I love it all! I can’t wait to try it all and share it with you!

WOW Summit 2014 swag bags

I highly recommend WOW Summit for awesome information about raising healthy families, exposure to some of the best brands out there, and inspiration and sisterhood from being with other moms!

The exact location for next year hasn’t been decided. I’m rooting for Minnesota – they didn’t mention it as an option but I’ll try to make a strong case. Otherwise, I better start planning now to afford a flight out because I don’t want to miss it!

Keep checking back and I will start to share some of the things I learned and the brands and people I met!
