Evolve the Day with Evolution Fresh

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

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.

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?!
