“Explosions”- Ellie Goulding

I missed last week’s “Products I love” post because life is super busy. But it’s Tuesday so it’s time to bring up some things that can help make your life a little easier.


Crystal Light/ Mio/ Dasani Drops

I’m obsessed. Water can be incredibly boring and I have difficulty drinking it some days for that fact. So Crystal Light has become a go-to. I can use one stick in 40 oz. of water or a couple light squeezes into a bottle.

Also- pro tip: it makes a much better mixer than any juice, soda, etc. with booze. My go-to “margarita” when not in prep is the Blackberry Lemonade or Strawberry Lemonade Crystal Light, water, and tequila. It’s refreshing, tastes delicious and there is no crazy sugar hangover.


Protein Bars

In prep I’m off these, but these are go-to’s in my daily life. There are three that are just too good not to share. 1. Combat Crunch Bars. I started off with the Cinnamon twist and it seriously tastes like a soft-baked cookie. I really enjoy the birthday cake, chocolate chip cookie dough, and chocolate brownie flavors too. Macros are: 20P/7F/25C plus tons of dietary fiber. Next is Oh Yeah One bars, a little smaller and more cake like in texture than Combat Crunch, but the flavors are delicious. Birthday Cake and Lemon cake are the hands down best and the Macros are great: 22P/24C/7F. Last but not least is my current favorite, Robert Irvine Fit Crunch Bars. The cookie dough and Chocolate Peanut Butter are incredible. 16P/8F/14C but little fiber. However, at 190 calories, it kicks my need for a candy bar and they are the least expensive of the bunch. You can get 6 in a box at Walmart for just over $6.


Spotify/ Netflix

Serious. Life. Savers. If you’re stuck doing cardio and need something to distract you, these are your best friends. I’ve binge watched on the stairmaster and discovered a ton of new music through Spotify. It’s a great way to clear your head and focus on anything but the task at hand. (Can you tell Cardio is not my absolute favorite?)

Hope at least one of these help you have a better week! And I’m serious about the Crystal Light, it’s amazing.
