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 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 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.

I plan to use #calories4good.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using 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

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

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. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
