Easy Roasted Broccoli

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

One of our favorite veggies to enjoy as a family is definitely broccoli. Thankfully, my boys would eat it every day! I love to make it a variety of different ways to kind of mix things up a bit. One of our favorite ways to eat broccoli is to roast it in the oven until it gets nice and golden brown and has a nutty flavor. Do you have a favorite way to make broccoli? I would love to hear!

Ingredients: 

1 large head of broccoli

2 -3 tablespoons olive oil

Sea salt

 

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Break the head of broccoli up into smaller bite sized pieces.

Place on a large cookie sheet pan.

Cover the broccoli with the olive oil. Make sure to coat all the broccoli so it gets cooked all over.

Season with salt.

Place in the oven to bake for around 15-20 minutes. At the halfway point of cooking, I like to take the broccoli out of the oven to shake it around a bit for even cooking.

You will know the broccoli is done when it has a nice brown crispy texture.

You can even add some Parmesan cheese at the end of the cooking process if you prefer.

Serve and enjoy! Yumm! Your entire family will love this!

A Younique Review: Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara + More!

Disclosure: I was provided with product to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy)

If you have been a My Sweet Savings reader for any amount of time now, you know how much that I love Younique products! My college friend Wendi, is a purple status Younique presenter and does such an amazing job showcasing this brand. I am always so grateful and excited when she offers for me to review products and share my thoughts with you! You can check out the entire lineup of Younique products HERE.

I was given the opportunity to review the newly released Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara, along with the Touch Mineral skin perfecting concealer (I wear the color Velour), Touch stick foundation (I wear the color Chiffon) and the Touch Behold SPF broad spectrum finishing powder in Medium.

Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara

This mascara is a remarkable product and delivers unlike any mascara you have ever seen! If you are wanting thicker, fuller and longer-looking lashes, this product is for you! Don’t pay for lash extensions! This mascara will give you what you need without the high price tag! Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara has Y‑shaped fibers and a specially engineered two-sided brush to interlock fibers for lash volume, length, and lift like you’ve never seen in real life. Just look and my with and without picture above! Ummmm……hello lashes! 

Touch Stick Foundation

This foundation is a medium-to-full coverage foundation with a velvety finish, as a pin-point concealer, and as an anytime touch-up accessory. Combine it with other shades for highlighting and contouring to get a defined, sculpted look in no time. With this stick foundation, you’re always covered. This product is so multi-faceted and you can use it in so many different ways. It will be more than your everyday concealer! I just love the velvety, medium-to full buildable coverage that it provides! 

Touch Behold SPF 25 Broad Spectrum Finishing Powder

As we get older it is so important to wear a finishing powder that has SPF in it. This setting powder from Younique is beyond exceptional! Embrace daily sun care with the next-level finishing powder that doesn’t just lock in your look. I love how this powder sets your makeup and blurs fine lines and wrinkles all while protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer 

This concealer is by far the best concealer that I have ever used. This lightweight full-coverage concealer helps hide everything from scars and burns to tattoos, discoloration, and other imperfections. Its exceptional silky texture nourishes and moisturizes the skin with key ingredients like Vegetable Lanolin, which consists of shea butter, glyceryl rosinate, and Olea Europaea. State-of-the-art microsphere technology provides camera-ready silky skin with a natural no-makeup look.

I have tried so many different concealers and have spent so much money trying to find the perfect one. This concealer from Younique goes on like a dream and it doesn’t take much to do the job! One tube will last you such a long time! In fact, I have barely even touched the surface of mine and I have had it for quite some time. It has such full coverage and lasts all day long. Those factors are so important to me when choosing a concealer, and this one does it all! I also love how it gives my eyes such a nice glow and brightens my face!

How to Make the Perfect Acaí Bowl at Home!

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

If you have been following my FASTer Way to Fat Loss journey, (you can see those posts HERE and HERE) then you know that I love Acaí Bowls! These yummy bowls are a great way to get in good carbs on a regular macro day. Acaí is also filled with so many antioxidants and omegas and is SO good for you!

If you have purchased these bowls at specialty shops, you know that they can be very pricey. I have found that making Acaí Bowls at home requires a bit of a learning curve, but I feel that I have found the perfect technique and they turn out perfect every time. Not only can I enjoy my favorite treat at home, but I am saving myself so much money in the long run! I thought that it would be helpful to share this recipe since so many people are into the Acaí Bowl and Smoothie Bowl craze these days!

INGREDIENTS:

1 Sambazon Acaí Packet (I usually buy mine at BJ’s, but you can also find them at any grocery store in the frozen section)

1 banana (keep half of the banana whole, then slice the remaining portion)

Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/2 cup frozen fruit blend (any will do)

1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 cup sliced strawberries

1 serving of your favorite granola

1 tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter

optional – I often add a few scoops of collagen powder to help me hit my protein levels for the day. I am currently using this one, but there are lots of great options out there!

DIRECTIONS: 

Place the Sambazon Acaí Packet in a blender (I highly recommend this blender!)

Add half of the banana and the frozen fruit.

Add just a splash of the unsweetened almond milk.

Turn the blender on and begin mixing.

Check the consistency of the mixture. Your goal is for it to be silky and smooth. I only add a splash of almond milk at the beginning then you can go from there and add more if you need to. You do not want to add too much liquid or the mixture will become more like a beverage.

Pour the Acaí mixture from the blender into a bowl.

Now comes the fun part! Start layering all of your delicious fruit! Layer the sliced banana, strawberries, blueberries and granola. Drizzle with peanut butter or almond butter and enjoy!

These Acaí Bowls are so versatile and you can add any fruit. You can even add things like sliced almonds or shaved coconut. The possibilities are endless!

What are your favorite Acaí Bowl toppings? I would love to hear!
