Balance Bar S'mores with a kick of protein! +Giveaway

 August 10th was national S'mores day, in celebration (a little late of course) here's an amazing Balance Bar that'll give you the taste of S'mores without the bad - and a kick of protein. With 14 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 23 vitamins/minerals this is a great alternative. Great to keep your energy up, and satisfy a chocolate craving as well.

What better way to enjoy a S'mores copycat that'll give you energy? Perfect size for snack bags, purses, gym bags, etc. Great idea for on the go, no grill or mess needed. Another great feature is Balance Bar's 40-30-30 nutrition principle! They discovered a nutrition formula that helps you find your balance throughout the day. It’s based on 40-30-30 nutrition to help maintain your blood sugar levels already within a normal range, help satisfy your hunger and give you lasting energy (sayonara, post-lunch slump!)

They are so delicious I'm eager for one lucky reader to win a box of their own. Check out the entry method below, and good luck! Here's to s'mores with a kick of protein.

Counting down the days...

2 weeks, 4 days until my due date with baby Donan #2! We are ready and excited for his arrival.

Review: Well Beginnings Diapers

Well Beginnings is an exclusive Walgreens brand that offers baby products including diapers, wipes, and shampoo which are both high quality and affordable. Well Beginnings Size 4 Jumbo Diapers (31 count) offer a soft stretchable waist, leakage protection for day and night to keep both mom and child happy.

The inner liner consists of natural botanicals, vitamin E, and aloe to soothe your baby’s bottom without being too harsh; these offer maximum comfort for baby. We loved how soft they were, as well as leakproof. There's nothing worse than a diaper brand that frequents in leaks. Walgreen's offers their quality baby diapers in Newborn to Size 6 and are 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Plus, if you have a newborn or baby in sizes newborn through size 2, the diapers feature a wetness indicator and turn blue when wet. I love this because a small baby can't alert you to a dirty diaper other than crying! The best part? They easily fit into your budget with a retail value of $8.99! We love how readily available they are at Walgreens, we have a store on every corner. Never will run out of diapers!

The greatness doesn't end there. Their baby wash which is made right here in the USA, is designed for use on your baby’s entire body. It can be used safely on both baby's skin and hair. With 100% soap-free, dye-free and pH-balanced features there's no worry about tears. Moms will be happy to know it's allergy-tested as well as paraben and phthalate-free. Our son's skin is sensitive but this wash made bath time a lot easier for the both of us.

Be sure to check out their natural wipes and Pediatric Electrolyte solution for all your baby/toddler needs as well. So thankful I got to review through the greenmomsmeet.com program, we've been introduced to a great brand that is sure to stay with our family. Thankfully Well Beginnings is a trusted brand in which families can afford but not skip out on quality in doing so.

I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer.
