    I have never seen popcorn in trail mix before. Yum, I bet my boys would love that.ReplyCancel

  • I’m really trying to make better choices with food but haven’t been doing very good. Thanks for this idea of a healthier trail mix.ReplyCancel

  • Your trail mix looks delicious. I need to find more healthy snacks.ReplyCancel

  • Your snack looks yummy and love that you are growing your own garden. I’m afraid we would starve if that was left in my hands LOL!ReplyCancel

  • Trail mix is definitely one of my biggest vices and Finish products are a favorite around our home.ReplyCancel

  • I really need to get a new dishwasher. OUrs broke last spring and I haven’t bought a new one yet. I buy a lot of organic and am trying to get my family away from packaged products, which is a VERY hard habit to break. Love the looks of your healthy trail mix.ReplyCancel

  • I need to try and eat more smaller meals. I end up snacking too much in between mealsReplyCancel

  • That trail mix looks so good. I am sure I would love it!! My husband is diabetic so he has to watch what he eats.ReplyCancel

  • I need to make some trail mix for my family.

    I use Finish but I need to look into this new line.ReplyCancel

  • I love trail mix! I should pick up some Finish to try. I am always open to trying products with less or no harsh chemicals!ReplyCancel

  • In our last home I could for some reason only use Finish in my dishwasher, every other kind did some crazy number on my dishes and the interior of my machine. When we moved I thought I’d try something else… well I’m back to Finish because it really does the best job clean hands down over any other kind of detergent I’ve tried. I’m happy they were able to cut down on the harsh chemicals and still get as good of a clean!ReplyCancel

  • We love trail mix and seeing your post makes me want to make some.ReplyCancel

  • That’s one of our favorite snacks as well!ReplyCancel

  • That looks so delicious. I want to make some for my desk at work.ReplyCancel

  • I use Finish anyhow, but I want to switch to this version instead. Also, your snack mix looks yummy!ReplyCancel

  • Your trail mix looks good. We make our own sometimes, too.ReplyCancel

  • One of these days I will get a dishwasher. I have been our dishwasher for the past 9 years and I’m tired lol :)ReplyCancel

  • I think it’s so sad that food companies make money off of selling product that isn’t healthy for human consumption. But good for you for buying natural and organic.ReplyCancel

The 2014 Kia Soul

The 2014 Kia Soul made it’s way onto my driveway recently one rainy day for a weeklong test drive, and the site of a bright yellow vehicle took me by surprise. It took many people by surprise, because this is one noticeable car: My husband said it was a girl’s car, and after taking it […]

  • I love your toast face! It’s pretty cool that they have so many bakeries to provide freshly baked bread in so many areas.ReplyCancel

  • Looks delicious. I need to switch the family to whole grain instead of white.ReplyCancel

  • This looks like a whole grain bread I might actually like. Most are so heavy and dense and just don’t taste good.ReplyCancel

    • Penelope

      It’s actually very light, and tastes great (really)…I always have that “blah” feeling about whole grain breads because of past experiences with them and this is fluffy and light, a really good toast or sandwich bread.ReplyCancel

  • I haven’t heard of Roman Meal bread. I’ll have to try it out.ReplyCancel

  • That mojito sandwich sounds so fresh and tasty!I buy Roman Meal’s bread a lot.ReplyCancel

  • Few things can top a good sandwich made on soft fresh bread! The recipe above looks great.ReplyCancel

  • It looks hearty, but not too hearty if you know what I mean. I’m going to pick up a loaf!ReplyCancel

  • I would love to switch our bread. I have to do it slowly…ReplyCancel

  • Sounds like a fun sandwich and I love the cut out, that is cute!ReplyCancel

  • We are a whole grains family. I love the smiley face, too cute and that recipe sounds delicious!ReplyCancel

  • Anna

    I would really like to try their bread – it looks great and we eat a lot of bread in my family.
    Thanks for the opportunity.ReplyCancel

  • I love making shapes with bread. The children love it too.ReplyCancel
