Things I have tried recently

So I have been trying to find a place to fit this post in, and I picked today lol. In the last couple weeks, there are a few things I have tried and I wanted to share.

First, I wanted to tell you that I am a bzz agent. "What is a bzz agent?" you might ask. Well its this cool website that you get to try new products for free and you review them. I have gotten hair dye, BB Cream and then I just got these Green Giant Veggie Chips. (Check out the website if this sounds like fun! It's free to do and anyone can do it)


So when I was chosen to try these, I was super excited! I love chips, and I love veggie chips, so I had a feeling I would like these. They really didn't disappoint. I got two flavors, Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddar and Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt. I really enjoyed both of them! They were crunchy and salty, which is super satisfying. And they felt less guilty, but didn't taste like a healthier option. The Zesty Cheddar were really a dead ringer for Doritos.  

And even tho I did get them for free, my opinion is all my own. If I didn't like them, I would have chosen not to blog about it :D So you know I am telling you the truth. Fun thing is they sent me two big bags to try, and also 4 smaller bags of the Sweet Potato along with 4 coupons! Rather than eating those, I had the idea to give them to you guys to try! Yay mini giveaway time :D Comment on this post your favorite kind of chips, and at 9 pm MDT TONIGHT, I will use Random.org to choose the winner from the comments :D Check out my Vlog tomorrow to see if you won!

Nextly! I was on Instagram, and a person I follow, Jackie Damp, posted about getting a sample of Shakeology. I have heard lots and lots about Shakeology so I contacted her to try! I tried out the Chocolate and it was pretty good! I am not a huge fan of protein powder, so I wouldn't say it was fantastic, but for protein powder, it was pretty good. Cool thing is, if you wanna try it too she will send you a free sample! Email her and tell her I sent you. I really wanna try the Vegan tropical…


So there you go! A couple things I have tried, and a surprise giveaway :D

  3. I'm a shakeology gal and I love the chocolate! The tropical vegan is good too but it's a wee bit grainy so don't be surprised if you don't love it at first. I recommend making it with almond milk, 1/2 a banana and blending.

  4. Those veggie chips sound good! Shakeology is amazing! Swapping breakfast or a snack out for a shakeology shake has worked wonders for me! It's pretty gross (in my opinion) without blending it with fruit. My fave is almond milk, frozen mangos or frozen strawberries, and shakeology. Or ice, Peanut butter or PB2, and almond milk with the shakeology. Love your blog girl!

  5. All time favorite chip? Grippo's BBQ. I think you can only buy them in OH and IN, so each time I head that way I stock up. Holy moley they are good!

    1. haha Suze I really like those too!!! BBQ with a kick! I can only find them in the more urban areas though. Might have to pick some up sometime soon!

    2. Grippos are a favorite of my husband & several of my friends. We lived in Ky and now S. Indiana. They've always be available. They also have a grippos seasoning although it's been hard to find.

  6. I don't usually eat chips, but if I do it is always tortilla chips with dip or salsa! I also tried Stacy's naked pita chips recently, they are so delicious...thick and super crunchy :)

  7. I Love pretty much all chips but one of my faves lately are barbecue pop chips :) I get a huge bag at costco

  8. The best tasting "healthy" chips I have found have been Quaker popped chips. They are little mini rice cake chips, but trust me they taste way better than they sound. I love the cheddar, ranch, and bbq. Crunchy and salty as chips should be. If we are talking about unhealthy chips... give me Lay's Sour Cream and Onion Chips all day long!!!

  9. I'm gonna have to try these veggie chips. I'm always looking for crunchy things that are good for me to satisfy my cravings for ruffles cheddar and sour cream chips!

  10. It's a tie between Snyder's Barbeque and Herr's Salt & Vinegar....oh, and then there's Baked Lays Barbeque! LOL

  11. My FAVE chips are Baked Lay's BBQ...or Kerr's Salt & Pepper Chips...or...great now I want chips! LOL ;)

  13. Oh this is NOT a healthy answer but I freakin' love Fritos. I couldn't even tell you the last time I bought a bag, but I could eat them everyday! My favorite healthier option, though not a "chip" is Pirates Booty or Veggie Chips-- so good!

  14. I love crunchy Cheetos! They are my guilty pleasure!!

  15. My favorite chip would have to be Bar B Que Ruffles but I haven't had them in ages.

  17. Hey hun! I just started following you and am loving reading about your journey! I am doing the Shakeology thing and so far I really like it! One of the main differences I've noticed since drinking it (mostly) daily is that when I work out I sweat A LOT more. I drink tons of water so I'm thinking it's a probably a good thing. I like to imagine my toxins and fat are just dripping away, and that I am hopefully not retaining as much water as usual. However, I gotta warn you I did NOT like the Tropical Strawberry... ewww!! It tasted too healthy to me. Maybe you'll have better luck though, especially if you use some fancy ingredients to dress it up? I was too lazy for that. I love the chocolate though! It's especially good blended up with a banana (or just half of one to skimp on calories). I usually do a little almond milk and just water and ice because I like mine a little less thick, it goes down easier that way. Looking forward to seeing more of your progress!! Keep it up pretty girl!

  18. Love Vegan Tropical!! I put it in a shake with mixed berries,a banana, spinach, all natural PB, almond milk, ground flax seed, and ice! YUMMY! I would suggest trying it before you buy it! Some people say they don't like the taste!

  19. I've seen on a couple blogs the "Pop Chips" and as crazy as this may sound, my husband and I were out of town last week and went to the mall. We stopped by Forever 21 and picked up a few clothing items for our youngest and low and behold at the checkout register, I found them! I picked up barbecue, sour cream and onion, vinegar and sea salt and katy's kettle corn. I like them all! We only bought 8 small bags and I'm down to 2. Like I said, we were out of town so I have no idea where to find them locally! They're never fried and never baked. Healty options with half the fat of regular chips. ~Melissa~

  20. I am OBSESSED with both of those Green Giant chips, so obsessed he last time I bought them I got 6 for $7 with a coupon.

    My favorite chips are Dirty Chips sour cream and onion. They are the absolute perfect chips that are packed with flavor. You never get a chip that has very little or no flavor on it and that's why I love them.

  21. Yummm I am a chip lover! Sadly, I can't remember the last time I bought them because I could sit and eat a whole bag. I love the Lays BLT chips and salt and vinegar.

  25. My favorite are the Zapp's Spicy Crawtators. Man, they are spicy and crunchy and just awesome. These look really good! I look forward to trying them.

  26. Simply Naked Stacy's Pita Chips! I just discovered them through a co-worker, and ever since I have been on a health food freak! I even kicked my pop habit to the curb! Woot-Woot!

  27. I really like kettle chips, but like Suze said, Grippos BBQ is amazing too!

  29. I hate advertisements. You may not think of yourself as advertising this product, but you are. I might understand your endorsing a product that was completely in line with your goals and that you discovered on your own. This doesn't pass the smell test.
