Wahoo, it’s Friday!  A long weekend for most of us and start of a new month!  Hello September and Fall! Any fun plans for the weekend?  Labor day weekend feels like the end of Summer which means It’s that time of year that my life will revolve around football. Tom’s game on Friday nights then college and NFL on the weekends.  We watch it all and I’m definitely not complaining.  Now it’s the end of the week which means it’s time for me to share all the food, fitness, and other favorites I’ve been loving this week.

Eating Evolved Chocolate

I picked up these Eating Evolved Dark Chocolate Caramel Cups while in Mom’s Organic Market last week.  They are a bit pricy, but I loved that they had real ingredients, cocoa, cane sugar, coco butter, coconut, and sea salt.  They were the perfect amount of sweetness.  I ate both of them on Wednesday for a healthy mid week treat.  And I really want to try the other flavors.

Latest Rocksbox Set

This is my fourth Rocksbox set, you can view my previous sets herehere and here.

Rocksbox is a designer jewelry membership program.  You get three hand selected jewelry pieces from over 30 designers delivered to your door based off items on your wish list.   You can keep the pieces for as long as you want.  When you’re ready to change them out you just return the box to receive a new set. You could also choose to purchase a piece and the monthly membership fee is applied as a credit each month.  It reminds me a lot of “Rent The Runway”, but for jewelry.  I truly think having a new jewelry piece completely transforms an outfit.

Vital Proteins Mixed Berry

I recently received one of Vital Proteins new products, the Mixed Berry Collagen Peptides.  I know some people prefer adding the regular Collagen to their morning coffee because you can’t even taste it, but I enjoy using the flavored peptides or Beauty Greens in my post workout smoothies.  I am LOVING the mixed berry.  My favorite smoothie combo has been, Mixed Berry Collagen Peptides, almond milk, almond butter, strawberries and half a banana.  Can’t wait to try it in a few more recipes.

It keeps beverages hot or cold for hours.  I want to order an even larger one and a tumbler too, the colors are also super cute.

Around the Web

In case you missed it on Sweet and Strong this week I posted:

Hearing about all the generous people and celebrities donating to those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  There are so many organizations, just curious on how you are choosing to donate/help?!?

I knew there was a good reason I eat oatmeal everyday during the school year.

      You need to try them! I think you would really like it. Sad thing is they’re a bit pricy…

      I’ve never had a chocolate dessert I didn’t like, even if it’s a healthier one!

      It has been SO cool this week, so weird for our area this time of year. Enjoy the weather Sunday and Monday as it’s supposed to hopefully clear up. Happy Weekend!

    Happy Friday, lady! Yay for football season! I’ve only tried the vanilla flavor peptides, so would definitely be interested in the berry too. I put collagen in my morning tea usually, so berry would be strange — hahaha! As far as your jewelry — SO cute! I love Kendra Scott stuff. Enjoy your weekend!

      The berry has been my favorite in smoothies, but yea I added vanilla to my coffee, but any other flavor would be weird. And yes the Kendra Scott jewelry from Rocksbox is by far my favorite. Been loving that bracelet!

      I hand idea Kesha has such pipes, that’s part of the reason I started loving the song. Happy Weekend!

    I want to try EATING EVOLVED CHOCOLATE so much! The price is holding me back. I haven’t heard of this Takeya Bottle!

      Yea it’s definitely a bit pricer than I usually spend on chocolate, but worth the occasional splurge.
