Noods, Mike’s Mighty Good noods.

The only noods you’ll ever see around here. 😁🍜

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
Took my @mikesmightygood spicy beef ramen for a stroll the other day because convenience is everything being a mama. Poppy needed some fresh air and I needed lunch so this grab-n-go ramen was perfect. @mikesmightgood ramen is the ultimate comfort food, insanely delicious ramen that you can feel good about eating. 🥰 It’s super flavorful but not too salty like other packaged ramen I’ve tried in the past. The best part was sipping the spicy beef broth at the end, serious game changer! Maybe next time I shouldn’t wear white though.. there were a lot close calls during this outing. Thanks Joel for carrying Poppy so I could enjoy these savory noods! 🤤

Evolve the Day with Evolution Fresh

I want someone to look at me like Poppy looks at my Evolution Fresh kombucha. #EvolutionFresh #Sponsored

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Being a stay-at-home mom has it’s highs and lows but the lows are seldom when I have a fridge stocked full of my favorite things. Having products in the house, like Evolution Fresh, make spending time with Poppy easier because I spend less time in the kitchen and more time with Poppy. I have been all about the Ginger Lemon Honeycrisp Kombucha lately. It’s the perfect combination of apple, lemon, and a kick of ginger! Poppy is growing so fast and I don’t want to miss a thing so grabbing one of these from the fridge has become a daily habit.

Have you tried Evolution Fresh before? You can find these gems at your local market and you’re sure to be hooked after one taste. Happy sipping! #EvolveTheDay

Sprouts Grocery Haul

Farmers market, grocery store, online grocery shopping, I love it all! There’s something so therapeutic about grocery shopping. Making my list, checking it twice, and creating yummy recipes with the food I purchase is one of my favorite past times.

Moving to San Diego brought us closer to a grocery store I haven’t explored in a long time. Sprouts is walking distance from us and that made me super excited to discover new items that other grocery stores might not have. Like my all time favorite vegan vanilla protein powder and a giant jar of peanut butter (#priorities). Fun fact: In college my best friend Erika and I would go to Sprouts after class to order a PB&J before the gym. Who does that?!
