things I wanted to share

I always tell myself I'll share exciting discoveries with all of you and I tend to forget! Especially when it comes to healthy foods that are kid-friendly! I have tried some new products that have been awful, but I have also tried things that are totally delicious! Some of those yummy things I'd like to share with all of you, so here we go!!!

I found this healthy treat at Wal-Mart-of all places! These are SO good. I love a good high fiber tortilla or pita but these exceeded ALL of my expectations! I have used them at breakfast, lunch and dinner!! My kids tell me they want an "egg pocket"-which means these pitas wrapped around scrambled eggs! My kids LOVE them and my hubby does too! I have baked them in the oven until crispy to make healthy tostadas and much more!

The possibilities are endless...YOU MUST TRY!

and these are SUPER cool! I just discovered them last weekend at a birthday party! We all know of CapriSun's...full of sugar and a popular drink for kids! These come in those same famous pouches but instead of a sugary drink...WATER! Yep! Genius, right?! I have contacted the company to learn more and find out where we can find these brilliant H2O's and I'll let you all know! My son's both LOVED them and my oldest was calling them a "water, juice box"! Ha!

What are some great products you and your family have tried lately?

I'd love to know! Hope you'll give these a try with your family soon!

Yesterday's Workout: a great 4 mile DETOX run! Meaning, I had to sweat out all of the junk food that was consumed over the weekend! Yikes! I think we were successful, because we've really bounced back on track this week! I guess we all need weekends of splurging every now and then! I am dreading the start of half marathon training, I guess I'll try and stick to my shorter distances until the weather cools off a bit!

Healthy Tip: Beat the heat by heading outdoors after dinner! When the sun goes down a bit, take the family for a walk or bike ride! This way you are all being active together and you'll make sure and eat healthy knowing you'll have to go walk it off immediately after!

I love those pitas! I used to eat them all the time when I lived in Minnesota. I can't find them anywhere since I moved to Arizona, but always buy a few packs when I fly to Mn to visit family!

Hmm, I'm guessing those pitas aren't at my local store since I've only ever seen 2 brands of pitas there. Stupid Kroger.

We've used the square version of those breads... lavash! So good, low low cal and carbs... perfect for eggs, any kind of meat, etc.

I'm definitely going to look for these pitas the next time I'm at Wal-Mart!
