Ladera Granola Immortal Chocolate Almond

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

If you've been reading my blog, then you know that I've been trying to make some changes, and that we are starting our journey to healthier eating.

Well, the timing for this product review couldn't have been more perfect. If you remember, I tried Ladera Granola earlier this year, and you can read that review here. I liked the granola, and when I heard about Immortal Chocolate Almond, I jumped at the chance to give it a try. Hello, you said chocolate!

Well, with our new way of trying to eat real food, I'm trying to eat less processed, and if I can't pronounce the ingredients list, we are trying to stay away from that food.

You want to know the ingredients in the Ladera Granola Immortal Chocolate Almond? It's WHOLE grain oats, slivered almonds, olive oil, cocoa powder, brown sugar, and salt. So basically, I know what I'm eating. And I personally feel good about that.

Now, the real test, how did it taste? I loved it! A quarter cup (the serving size) was actually just the right amount to satisfy my sweet tooth. But with the almonds and the oats, I also got a crunch. It was really the best of both worlds. And that was just plain. I would imagine it would be awesome in yogurt, and well of course on ice cream ;)

But, I asked Hubby to give it a taste. He wasn't thrilled to try it. He's not a big fan of chocolate. I mean he likes chocolate. He just isn't crazy about it. But he reluctantly took a small pinch. Then, he reached for more ;). I said, be honest, what do you think? He said it was 'pretty good' and coming from him that's a pretty big compliment. So he'll be getting some in his lunchbox since he liked it.

The slogan for Ladera Granola is "We're nuts about natural."

I really like that slogan, and so far, I've really liked their products. Check Ladera Granola out at their website You an also find them on facebook and twitter.

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

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


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
