Friday Favorites

Oh boy this is fun! One of my favorite posts to write is this one -- Friday Favorites -- where I get to share all the fun things worth sharing that I have either purchased or been sent by marketing companies in the recent months/weeks. 

First off, it's Friday and I couldn't be happier. That being said...

There are a few new things in my life that I use on the daily and I wanted to share them because they are SO worth it.

First of all, I rarely eat granola! Actually never. I have made a few homemade granolas {remember this one here and this one here} and mmmmmm, so good, but it's often soooo time consuming.  But the stuff in the bag from the store? NO! Not having it. Usually cooked at high temps with canola oil and sugar, FULL of unwanted calories and just not the idea breakfast. HOWEVER, Purely Elizabeth has changed breakfast for me! I came across their products accidentally at a health food store and wow, even their hot cereal {never was a big hot cereal person before either} is amazingly healthy. As an ex health food company owner and product developer, I am snobby and picky about what goes into packaged goods. 

THANK YOU Purely Elizabeth, for saving my mornings. Also, why aren't you in Target anymore? 

Anyways, next up on my list...Yuve! Holy moly this stuff is good. I have tried MANY MANY protein powders and powdered nutritional supplements and very few of them met my ingredient standards and my tastebud standards {wink}! This stuff is revolutionary! You gotta try it

Next up, BABY STUFF! 

With a new baby in the house I'm having to revisit the baby products and baby phase. I still use the Bjorn and get lots of funny looks {I think they have gotten a bad wrap amongst a certain crowd since my other boys were little but I own the Ergo and just can't seem to wear it correctly because I'm used my good old bjorn}. Anyways, a diaper service?? Um, that was NOT even an option when my boys were babies. had just been invented and as much as I loved the concept I didn't really have a need for diapers any longer. Anyways, so, because I'm an affiliate for them and because I blog for them I felt the "need" to also use their products. I do have to say, the  Honest Company bundles  are amazing. However, I was a novice with the whole "bundle" thing. I ordered too many, forgot to update my next month's bundle, blah blah, etc. But as soon as I got used to it...oh my...where has this diaper service been my whole life? Where has this BUNDLE SERVICE been my whole life? 

Finally, last but not least, YUMuniverse plant-based cookbook! I love Heather's YumUniverse blog. It's one of my favorites. I don't sit and read too many blogs but when I do look at this one---she nails it. Everything is to me, perfect. I'm extremely envious of this cookbook; it's what I would only dream about doing. I wanted to blog about it sooner but I had my baby and haven't been online much. {sorry you guys}. 

That's all for now. But before I sign out, if you haven't checked out my 3 ingredient pancakes yet, you're missing out! They are healthy and very DELISH. They do contain EGGS however (but you can sub vegan eggs), which this blog doesn't usually include.
