So, if it's alright with you guys, I'll probably wish you all a happy new year at least until the very end of the month--- which crazy enough, we're already half way too. I'm pretty excited to be teaming up with Plum Vida this new year. In general, besides my huge (guilty pleasure) love for french fries and bbq chips, I eat really healthy-- but I think you guys know that? So, Plum Organics came out with this new line, Plum Vida-- especially geared to us busy adults. At first I was like, wait, what? Isn't that for toddlers? Errr.... umm... But then actually looking it over and thinking about it, I was like, no, this is absolutely a great idea--- anytime we can replace the forever guilty bag or potato chips or chemical filled fast food experience with an organic, really healthy option? Well, thats a great, great thing. Ya know? I mean, guilty pleasures are guilty pleasures for a reason, I do love them, but for the everyday quick grab and go? Junk is not the solution to longer happy living. It's about taking little steps, every single day. And this new snack step, well, it's super easy, and a great option to snacking on the go. What I also liked was that unlike juice or fruit, this travels, really well. And yes, they are completely organic and free of additives! I've been adding an extra pouch for me and a toddler version for Marlowe in my bag everyday-- just in case. And coming back from traveling last week? Well, it was just super convenient! You can pick them up in the juice isle of target ;)
With Plum Vida's Refresh, they've asked us to refresh an extra aspect in our life this New Year. Further showing how easily refreshing little things, can make big changes in your mood, health, and life. I debated a while about what I could realistically do to make positive changes this year--- work out? I already started yoga a few months ago (it's amazing). Wake up early? Realistically, it won't happen. Drink more water? That would totally help. But really--- I wanted to make a promise to myself and to Marlowe that we would get outside more. Take a walk or just run around in the sun every single day--- okay, maybe not when it's monsoon-ing, haha, but otherwise, I just wanted to get outside and do fun things in the sunshine everyday with the kiddo. A small thing, pretty do-able, but yes, sometimes a surprisingly difficult task for us. I know, we live in Florida--- it shouldn't be that hard to do it, but sometimes it just is! We've been cooped up all last year-- and spent an embarrassing amount of time at home. I mean, we love our home, we really do, but this year I'm really hoping to refresh each day by getting out-- and really, I'm pleased Plum Vida asked us to join, because to be honest, I probably wouldn't have made the promise otherwise ;)
(Plum Vida for me--- and the original, organic and loved Plum Organics for her! My favorite, hands down is the cherry, berry, beet, ginger)
So far it seems like a pretty fun and doable "task"--- I'm looking forward to see how it goes now that we're back home from vacation. I'm truly going to try, each day to move forward in little steps. And I definitely hope you guys join in this new year! What would you refresh? I'll be posting in the next week or two with an update-- and if we kept up and how we felt/feel :)
Also, Plum Organics wants to give out a plum vida keep cool tote and a set of Plum Vida packets to a lucky ohdeardrea reader!
