Salads Have Arrived at Sun Basket!

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

I am a huge fan of Sun Basket! They strive to make healthy cooking easy and delicious, and they offer organic and sustainably sourced produce and responsibly-sourced meats and seafoods. I love having the option of a meal delivery service right to my door that fits my family’s busy schedule. And now, things have gotten even more exciting! Salads have arrived at Sun Basket! I was so excited to have the opportunity to try several of these delicious new salads and couldn’t wait to share my review with you all! Choose from: Southwestern Salad, Vegan Caesar, Rainbow Asian Salad, and Protein Crunch Super Greens. 

These salads are available to add to your weekly basket. Not only are these salads delicious, but they are literally ready in minutes!  You simply mix, dress, and enjoy! I also love that you can serve them as is or add a protein if you prefer. Voila, you have a healthy and delicious meal for lunch or dinner. The possibilities are endless! 

I tried the Protein Crunch Salad and the Kale Caesar Salad. Both were equally delicious and packed full of flavor! The thing that I love about these salads is that they come with their own information card that shows you step by step instructions on how to prepare them. So easy! In fact, they can be prepared and on the table within 5 minutes!

Protein Crunch Salad:

This salad is packed full of flavor! Puffed quinoa, buttery walnuts, and kale are combined with dried blueberries and riced cauliflower for color and crunch. The dressing is an organic sherry vinaigrette which gives the salad a sweet and nutty taste. It was delicious!

Kale Caesar Salad:

This delicious salad is a healthy twist of the classic caesar salad. Instead of those croutons the classic caesar salad is known for, this healthy spin combines dry-roasted chickpeas and sunflower seeds to give you that satisfying crunch!I added some grilled chicken to my salad for extra protein! With Sun Basket’s organic vegan caesar dressing you get all the flavor of the original caesar dressing, but this one is plant-based and made with almond milk and cashew butter. It is absolutely amazing! 

In addition to these delicious salads, Sun Basket also sent me a couple of meals to prepare last week. We had the Chicken Parmesan and the Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad. Of all the meal delivery services that my family has tried, Sun Basket has the freshest ingredients. In addition every detail is amazing when they ship their meals. They send you everything that you need to prepare the dish. They even send the egg! The only thing that you need from your pantry is the olive oil and salt and pepper. It makes cooking so easy!

Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad:

The sweet-tart of the citrus and delicately bitter chicory lettuce along with the seared steak makes for an easy one-pan paleo meal that will taste like you stepped into your favorite restaurant! 

Chicken Parmesan with house salad:

One of my personal all time favorites! This Italian-American classic combines hearty, gooey, and satisfying with breaded chicken, fresh-cooked tomato sauce, and a green salad. Sun Basket has delivered with this one! Every bite was cleaned off my family’s plates! 

GO HERE to try Sun Basket for yourself to see just how delicious the meals are. Have you tried Sun Basket before? Did you like it?

Review of LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta + Savings Coupon!

Disclosure: My family and I were provided with complimentary tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

My family and I were recently traveling through Atlanta during the holidays and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Believe it or not, LEGOLAND Discovery Center can be found on the third floor of Phipps Plaza, one of Atlanta’s most prestigious malls. LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the ultimate indoor LEGO playground with 2 rides, 10 LEGO build & play zones, a 4D cinema & much more! Since my boys are huge LEGO fans, there were super excited when they found out that we were going here! 

The first thing that you will notice when you enter, is a fun exhibit all about how LEGO bricks are made. You can even go on a behind-the-scenes Factory Tour to discover how LEGO bricks are made! This is fun for all ages! 

From there, we went on the Kingdom Quest ride. This indoor ride is all about capturing the Princess! Hop aboard your chariot on the Kingdom Quest ride to rescue her.This ride is suitable for children ages 4+. I rode with Brady our youngest, while my hubby went with Drew our oldest. They both thoroughly enjoyed as we were able to shoot targets throughout the ride.

Our entire family loved the LEGO 4D Cinema! While we were there, The LEGO® Movie™ 4D A New Adventure was showing featuring Emmet, Wyldstyle, Benny, MetalBeard and Unikitty. It was so cute and had real effects like water, wind and more! There are several features available and they have new bricktastic news in store for 2019! 

There are lots of other things to see along the way at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, including Miniland. This was my personal favorite! It features Atlanta landmarks all built by LEGOS in day and night settings. In fact, Miniland is made from nearly 1.5 million LEGO® bricks, with moving cars and trains, so even the smallest spectator will feel like a giant! It is so cool! 

Other things to do at LEGOLAND Discovery Center include: Merlin’s Apprentice Ride, Pirate Adventure Island, Duplo Village, LEGO Master Builder Academy, Earthquake Tables, LEGO Friends, LEGO Racers: Build and Test, and the Ultimate LEGO Ninjago Experience. These activities are sure to keep your little ones busy for hours. They even have their own cafe which features beverages, snacks and other delicious foods. I noticed that their prices were very reasonable too!

No trip the LEGOLAND Discovery Center would be complete without visiting the LEGO Store! They offer LEGO sets, plush, toys and more!

Overall, we had such a fantastic time at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Atlanta, and I would highly recommend it if you live in the area or you are passing through!

Review of the Paw Patrol PlasmaCar + GIVEAWAY!

Disclosure: I was provided with a Paw Patrol PlasmaCar to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

UPDATE: The winner is Mandy G.

My son Brady was super excited when he found out that we were going to feature a Paw Patrol PlasmaCar this year in our Holiday Gift Guide. He loves Paw Patrol, and of course, we love the Original PlasmaCar! Put the two together and you have one very happy boy! Brady could not wait for his daddy to assemble the Chase Paw Patrol PlasmaCar so that he could get on it and give it a spin! 

No job is too big, no pup is too small! Now you can have Chase, Skye or Marshall from the Nickelodeon™ kid’s show, PAW Patrol® to light up your child’s imagination. The sleek innovative design of The Original PlasmaCar® features a patented safety seat, polypropylene wheels, and has been upgraded with paw print footrests and hubcaps, and PAW Patrol® character themed decals. Kid powered; kid approved! Turn and navigate in small spaces indoors, and ride outdoors on sidewalks, pathways, and any other safe, smooth, flat surface. The Paw Patrol PlasmaCar® is easy to operate, and helps your child develop coordination, balance, and motor skills while harnessing the natural forces of inertia, centrifugal force, gravity, and friction. 

I personally love that PlasmaCar® is adult-friendly too! Did you know that they hold up to 220 pounds? Even Dad and Mom can get in on the fun! And, it doesn’t require an expensive power source that needs constant replacement, it provides kids with plenty of exercise, and it is quiet! In fact, the only sound that you’ll hear is the sound of the wheels! Yay! How is that for a great gift idea this holiday season? 

As you can see from the photos, Brady has had so much fun on his Chase Paw Patrol PlasmaCar! I know that he is going to have hours of fun wiggling away on it in the months to come! Want to see more details and information about the Paw Patrol Plasma Car? GO HERE to check them all out!

Prepare for Cold and Flu Season Now! #SinexSavings

Various cold and flu remedies

I can hardly believe that November is here! The holidays will be here before you know it, and with this busy time of the year also brings the dreaded cold and flu season. Are you prepared for when the cold and flu season hits? I personally like to be prepared before cold and flu season hits and to have my medicine cabinet and pantry stocked with those items that I know make my family and I comfortable for when we are sick.

Here are a few of my favorite tips to help prepare for cold and flu season:

  1. Stock up on supplies– make sure that you have enough items like tissues, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer, hand soap and paper towels on hand because you will need them! When you see them on sale, consider purchasing extra to have on hand in your stockpile just for cold and flu season. You will be so thankful for your extra supply when sickness hits! –
  2. Stock your pantry– be sure to have a well-stocked pantry with items like chicken noodle soup, teas, sports drinks, and even popsicles in the freezer to keep you hydrated for when the dreaded flu hits. I also like to keep some of my boys favorite treats stocked in the pantry for those times when sickness hits.
  3. Wash those hands– this is probably one of the most effective ways to prevent the flu. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds scrubbing with soap and water. Throughout the day, you can also use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer to kill other germs that you come in contact with.
  4. Check your medicine cabinet– check your medicine cabinet now to see if you have enough items like fever reducers, pain relievers, a working thermometer, and other medications that your family uses to fight the cold and flu season. Be prepared and have those items well-stocked for when sickness unexpectedly hits.

Various Sinex Products

One of my favorite brands to stock up on for when cold and flu season hits is the Sinex line of products found at Walmart. Sinex products provide long-lasting relief from stuffiness and congestion. And, daytime products provide relief without grogginess!

Vicks Sinex Liquid Capsules

Right now, we can get a head start on preparing for cold and flu season by making sure that our medicine cabinets are well-stocked with these Sinex products thanks to sweet savings at Walmart!

  • Get $1 off any Sinex product at Walmart with the BrandSAVER coupon from the 10/28 newspaper insert
  • Get $3 in rebates on Sinex LiquicapsSinex Mist, and Sinex VapoCOOL at Walmart with an iBotta offer starting 11/7
