Favorite foods, a big yogurt giveaway, spices, great links and more

What’s up, people? Rolling into the weekend with a smile over here! On tap, I’m teaching BODYPUMP, getting a much-needed haircut, going to dinner and a cool event in the City with Dave and trying out a spa experience with Jill on Sunday afternoon. But today, it’s all about some tasty foods I’ve been enjoying lately and a giveaway for you! Take a seat, relax, read through and enter to win. Let’s go!

Latest favorite things 

Favorite food: Siggi’s Yogurt and a *GIVEAWAY*

I know that there are a lot of people out there living the dairy-free life, and I support people making choices about the things they want to put into their bodies. But I mean, yogurt. Don’t you miss yogurt? Especially high-quality healthy yogurt, like the Siggi’s Icelandic-style strained variety, which is pretty low in sugar and very high in flavor? (Apologies to those who have a real dairy sensitivity, because that’s not fun at all, and I feel for you!)

While I normally go with Greek yogurt, Siggi’s is a dream and a good high-protein solution, and believe it or not — yogurt can totally be an on-the-go snack — just bring a spoon in the car. I’ve mentioned super-smooth Siggi’s as a favorite before, but I’m doing it again because I have a big giveaway for you: One lucky reader will get one month of Siggi’s yogurt. More details below.

Favorite snack: GoMacro Thrive Bars

I haven’t met a GoMacro bar that I didn’t like, and that’s the truth. The GoMacro folks sent me a variety pack of their latest superfood ancient seed and nut bars, Thrive, and the flavors are super unique. For instance, blueberry lavender? So good! I think it’s my favorite, although ginger lemon is pretty tasty too.

I’ve been eating these for afternoon snacks lately, and they are quite filling. And of course, they are organic, gluten free, non-GMO, kosher, soy free, vegan and low glycemic — so basically healthy. If you want to order them online, head to the GoMacro site and use the code Thrive30 for 30 percent off your order. 

Favorite flavors: Raw Spice Bar

This is a such a cute and totally cost-effective gift idea for someone who loves to cook, or someone who loves to put spices on their roasted veggies, like me. The Raw Spice Bar folks sent me a sample of their monthly small-batch spice pack, which, by the way is only $8 per month, and it’s delivered directly to your door. How cute are these packs?

Raw Spice Bar

These spices are whole, freshly ground and from all over the world. Organic. Paleo. Sugar free. Vegan. Gluten free, etc. Which are good claims, because when you start to look at the ingredients of a lot of tasty spices out there, they are rarely clean. I sprinkled Chipotle Smoked Salt all over my roasted broccoli, and Dave and I used the Sun Dried Tomato Pizza on a pizza — they were both delish. Such a fun thing to switch up the flavors in your kitchen. Thanks, Raw Spice Bar. Check out more from the company here

  1. Um those little spice packets are the cutest! And I love that they have clean ingredients, I need to look into ordering some. And my favorite part of the week is Friday at 4:00 when all the kids have left school and I can relax and enjoy my weekend 😉

    1. Hahaha I bet it’s totally exhausting to be a teacher! Do you teach at the same school where your hubs is a coach?? Or do you teach younger kids?? Happy Friday, Patricia!!

  2. Those little spice packs are so cute and such a great idea! I’m happy that it’s finally Friday and the weekend is upon us 🙂

  3. Love me some Siggi’s! All the flavors are too good. I’m loving that it’s Friday and we’re planning on going to a corn maze tomorrow, and doing lots of long walks with the dog :). Kinda stinks that after all of your hard work, they cut you out of the video …. oh well. Have a great weekend!

    1. Corn maze?? How fall festive if you! Enjoy those dog walks, friend!! And about the video ahaha– oh well– a few other people got cut out too!! Happy Friday!!

  4. I am happy the weekend is here 🙂 But really I am thankful for everything in my life. This past week I’ve spent time enjoying the beautiful weather while hiking and running, enjoying time with friends, and celebrating my 3 year anniversary with best friend/husband. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!

  5. I’m so happy for be fact that I’m in the Bay Area this weekend to celebrate two of my close friends getting married!

  6. I absolutely love Siggis but I only buy it when it’s on sale! I love getting inspiration from their Instagram!

  7. Favorite part of the week…today I worked with a 4th and kindergarten class and read a book on kindness and then did an activity with them. I am a school psychologist and its nice when I can step away from the crisis situations and testing and promote wellness kindness and gratitude to this kids. Makes my heart so happy!

  8. Annnnnd I follow Siggi’s on Instagram. I’m actually one of their RD ambassadors which, unfortunately, doesn’t come with free yogurt so I hope I win :).

  9. I’m happy that today is Sunday! It was a totally relaxing day of going to my favorite coffee shop, visiting a farmers market, eating good food, prepping a ton of food for the week, and now I’m watching a movie with my boyfriend. Love lazy sundays!!

  10. I’m happy that I had such a productive Sunday! And happy that you’re running this awesome Siggi’s giveaway 🙂

  11. I’ve tried the Siggi’s blueberry yogurt and it’s really good! I have never seen the Thrive Bars and I should probably look for those soon because I like protein/snack bars after workouts. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!
