Hunger Action Month - Do Your Part By Using FoodTweeks #calories4good.



I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

September is Hunger Action Month. And it's astounding the number of people who are hungry. "1 in 6 Americans struggles with hunger." (source FeedingAmerica.org). Wow, 1 in 6 people.

And there is a way that you can help, and it's actually really simple and quite easy. It's an app called FoodTweeks. So how does it work? It actually has a dual purpose. Every time you trim calories from your food choices, those calories are donated to food banks. Say what? I know. I thought the same thing when I heard about it.

But basically it's really easy. You type in the food that you going to eat. The app gives you suggestions on how to 'tweek' the calories (like a substitute or smaller portion size) and each time you 'tweek', a food bank will receive donations from FoodTweeks.








I have to admit that's pretty cool. And when you share your tweek on social media, you can double your calories that are being donated while at the same time raising awareness about hunger in America.  #calories4good

You can double your donations each time you use FoodTweeks by going  here http://www.foodtweeks.com/communities/moms/ and enter MOMS as the promo code. I signed up with this promo code so that my donations will be doubled.

I have tested the app, and I love the concept. First of all, it makes me aware of what I'm about to eat. And by tweeking the food, I'm able to save some calories which I'm hoping will help with weight loss. And at the same times, I'm helping others in need. I encourage you to check out this free app. It's available on iTunes and Google Play. http://www.foodtweeks.com/#howitworks

I plan to use #calories4good.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. This looks fantastic, I am wondering whether it will help me count carbs - since I am a diabetic I need to stay within a certain range.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Rejection

You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
