BestNursingHomes.com celebrates National Senior Health & Fitness Day! #Sponsored


We never want to think about when our loved ones come to the point to where they are no longer able to take care of themselves. There are many decisions to make when you are son, daughter, or even as a grandchild making decisions for a grandparent. Having a parent/grandparent remain in the home and have a caretaker come in could be an option for some, but not for all. 

What about if a loved one has an accident, and might need surgery that may be temporary, such as hip replacement or heart surgery. Hospitals provide the basic care until they are ready to discharge, but what happens afterwards? 

If you or a loved one need more advanced medical care, help is available in what is called a “post-acute” care center, also known as a “nursing home.”

Quick and Delicious Meal Ideas #AD



Quick and Delicious Meal Ideas

Millions of Americans are discovering the benefits of eating less meat. With all the options available to replace an animal-product at the center of the plate, there is no need to miss a thing. Building a healthy and satisfying meal is as easy as selecting the meat alternative of your choice and adding your favorite side dishes.

Try The Healthy Alternative

A company that has come on strong with meatless options available in grocery stores across the country is Gardein. The name is a clever combination of garden and protein into one word, which pretty much describes their offerings perfectly. The Gardein chicken options range from grilling strips ready to add to a stir-fry or casserole, to chik'n sliders that bring the quick savory taste of fast-food mini-chicken sandwiches home with ease.

National Hummus Day! Celebrate with Sabra & Win + Greek Chicken & Feta Flatbread Hummus Pizza Recipe! #Sp #HummusDay


I am so excited to be working with Sabra this year! I am going to be posting some fabulous information and recipes using hummus. To start things off, we are celebrating National Hummus Day! Sabra will be giving away coupons to celebrate National Hummus Day at nhd.sabra.com. So make sure you click on over there to have the chance to get some free Sabra hummus! 

Hummus is awesome, not only is it good for you, it tastes amazing! For those who have never tried hummus, I totally recommend Sabra's original with some pita chips. Hummus is simply made from ground chickpeas and when traditionally made, it has olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and herbs & spices are added. Sabra has a vast array of hummus products, salsas, & veggie dips. 

Today, I am sharing with you a National Hummus Day recipe. It's a Greek Chicken & Feta Flat bread Hummus pizza. Instead of using pizza sauce, I spreaded some original Sabra hummus on a piece of flatbread, and topped it off with some black olives, feta cheese, grilled chicken, & tomatoes. I stuck the pizza in the oven on 350° for about 10-15 minutes until the flatbread became crispy. Man, was it delish! You totally can make the pizza any way you'd like, this is just how I decided to do mine. 


This makes a great snack, or lunch idea! 

(1) Flatout Flatbread
1/2 cup of black olives
1/2 cup feta cheese
sliced tomatoes
sliced grilled chicken
Sabra original hummus spread.

Bake in the oven on 350° for about 10-15 minutes. 

What are some of your favorite hummus recipes? Leave them in the comments section below, and don't forget to head over and enter to win Sabra's giveaways to celebrate #HummusDay!

Cottonelle gives me the confidence I need to #GoCommando + #FREE Sample Kit! #Sp


I try to start every morning off on the right foot, I try to eat a healthy breakfast, and then once I've dropped the kids off at school, I like to come back home and start my day. I typically head to our local YMCA for a workout, or sometimes I will just walk our neighborhood. Whatever I do though, I want to feel confident. Getting out and taking a walk, or going to the Y makes me feel good inside and out. 

I want to share with you some of my tips to achieve a higher self esteem, to reach your goals, and things I've done to help me feel more confident. 

#1-Help Others. This is a given, doing something good for others automatically makes you feel good about yourself right? So why not get out and volunteer at your local soup kitchen, or the local food bank.

#2-Go at it 110%. Whatever you are trying to achieve make sure you put forth 100%. If you're working out, instead of walking 30 minutes a day, push yourself to walk 5 minutes more each day until you've reached a goal. 

#3-Face your fears. Don't be afraid to try new things, I recently zip-lined for the first time, It was amazing!

#4-Don't be a negative Nancy. The next time you have a negative thought about goals you want to achieve, stop it! I know, easier said than done right? But negativity won't get you anywhere, and only you can control your thoughts. 

So there you have it, some of my tips.

Bladder Leakage?! Don't fret! Depend Silhouette Active Fit Briefs are here to help! #Underwareness #Sp


As we get older, our bodies change, unfortunately things start happening, and we aren't exactly sure why. I know personally one of the things I have been dealing with is light bladder leakage, this didn't happen until after I had children. For the most part it isn't bad-unless I sneeze, or cough-Moms, I know you know what I'm talking about. Am I embarrassed? Probably not as much as I should be, because I know several of my friends dealing with the same issues as I am, and after all there are 51 million women who experience bladder leakage. Another fact, More people with bladder leakage are in their 20’s than their 80’s! Wow!

I first realized I had bladder leakage, like I said, after my children were born. I have been using period pads and liner to control my problem, and wear those on a daily basis. I'm excited today to introduce you to a great product from Depend, it is their Silhouette Active Briefs. I know, when I hear the brand Depend, I think of briefs for elderly people. No, the Silhouette Active Briefs, are for people of all ages. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief featuring a thin design for complete comfort and the trusted protection of the Depend brand. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise for an underwear-like look, fit and feel.
