Five on Friday # 1

Happy Friday Friends! Today I’m linking up with Darci, over at the good life blog, for a Five on Friday post. I’m really excited about this post because it includes some of my favorite fitness products. Enjoy!

1 – Spark Energy Drink. This stuff is addicting and really good! My favorite flavor is fruit punch, hands down. It’s a caffeinated drink that gives you such a distinct and amazing boost of energy that lasts me throughout the day. I drink one a day in the am and I'm set!

2 – Contigo Water Bottles. These are my new best friends. I bought them last week and got them for a steal! Head over to Costco – They are selling a pack of 3 for $14.99! Such a great price and I use these ALL the time, EVERYWHERE I go. A must have! Here are a couple of the colors that came in the pack I bought.

3 – Quest Bars. If you want something you can eat on the go for a meal, here is the product for you. They are packed with protein, fiber, and NO added sugar. The cookies & cream flavor is actually really yummy. It has chunks of cookies and cream in the bar which makes it seem like you are truly biting into an OREO cookie. No wonder this bar is called a clean cheat!
4 – Yurbuds. I absolutely LOVE mine. I no longer have to re-insert my earphones while I’m running or working out. I bought these at Nordstrom for $29.99. It was the best $30 I spend there! Haha. They come in fun, bright colors and literally DO NOT fall out of your ears.

5 – Hard-boiled eggs. Ever since I started to eat clean, this is my go to snack. They are so easy to make and always a good food item to have on hand. I have at least 5 a week, if not more. I recently tried buying them in bulk and already pre-boiled and peeled at Costco but that was an epic fail, according to me AND my husband. They didn't taste like real eggs and I had to plug my nose to get them down. So back to the good ‘ole home-style way of boiling & peeling myself. The picture below is the latest batch I cooked up using my aunt and uncle’s freshly hatched eggs that they gave me. Isn't it crazy how organic eggs aren't actually white? Makes me wonder what happens to the store bought eggs to get them so perfectly white.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

  1. oh gad. pre-made hard boiled eggs sound not so good. :) but you're right…what a great snack food to have on hand! i wonder if my little girl would like them? she's constantly nagging me for snacks. i need to get those earbuds! my ears are literally sore at the end of a run from having to push my other earbuds in. so annoying! found you via the linkup! karli -

    1. Hi Karli. Love doing the linkup (even if it was my first one and I'm still so new to this blogging thing)! My 3 year old won't eat the eggs but my 16 month old will, go figure! And definitely try the will like them! Thx for the comment =)

  2. Lovin' your blog Whit. I'm trying the peanut butter cookie dough bites and hummus-crusted chicken in my house, thanks for those! :) As soon as I get the hang of clean eating I hope to come up with some of my own recipes that I will share. We will see if culinary school pays off haha.

    By the way, those white store bought eggs are so beautifully white because they are BLEACHED. YUCK! Same goes for white rice and sugar. Basically there's nothing in the natural world of food that is actually white. Nice right?!

    1. thanks kirstie!!! Let me know how the bites and chicken turn out!! I am always looking for new CLEAN recipes so let me know if you get some good ones.... I totally just remembered you were into cooking!!! I think you told me that back in high school? haha

      And that's gross about the white foods, yuck! Once you know all this stuff, it's crazy how different shopping at the grocery store has become.
