I love Disney Nature films. Look at these Pandas! They are adorable.  Disney Nature movies bring you closer to nature to see things you would never be able to see….Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together.

I hope you make plans to see BORN IN CHINA. It is rated G and opens in theatres everywhere April 21, 2017!

Disneynature welcomes John Krasinski into the family as the narrator of BORN IN CHINA.

“I’ve been a huge fan of the Disneynature films for a really long time,” said Krasinski. “I think I’ve seen them all a couple times and to be asked to be a part of something that I feel is not only so beautiful and such great storytelling, but is so important, I was honored to be a part of it. To find this unbelievable landscape that was far beyond the cities and the bustling crowds of the China that I thought I knew was just fascinating.”

Stay hydrated:

Not only is water good for hydration when you feel bloated, hydrating with water can be very helpful in decreasing the bloat.  Additionally, you’re less likely to over eat later on if you are well hydrated.  You may also find that your hunger has subsided.  That’s because people often mistake hunger for thirst as they share many of the same symptoms.

So, make sure to drink plenty of water and you can also try adding in fruits and veggies like celery, cucumbers, grapefruit and watermelon which also have a high water content.

Together they have written a very helpful book, Should I Scoop Out My Bagel, about diet and nutrition.  This book has 99 easy to read chapter that answer some of your questions about how to eat healthy and how to make better choices. It’s very informative! It’s also a very easy book to read – it gives you simple and usable advice!

Got a question? Leave me a comment and Hallie and Ilyse can answer it for you! And if you want an easy book to read about diet and nutrition, order Should I Scoop Out My Bagel at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4: the Perfect Tablet For On The Go + $500 Microsoft Store Giveaway

Christmas is getting close. Every year I make a list of gifts to give everyone. My husband is pretty easy to shop for, but I want to give him something practical that will help him every day.

Every day he brings his laptop with him and there are days that he heads to a coffee shop to get some work done. He has a full-time job, and he’s finishing up his doctorate. He has a heavy laptop, and it’s a struggle for me to move it off the living room chair after he gets home. So this Christmas I thought I would get him a gift that would lighten his load and make things easier for him.

 This is a sponsored conversation about p$$t products is written by me on behalf of Kroger. The opinions and text are all mine.

Save More On P$$T Products At Kroger + Digital Coupons

I have a magnetic shopping list on my refrigerator so as we run out of things we can add it to the list. It’s the best way to help stay organized. Then on Sunday I make my meal plan and add to that list. Just before I head out the door I log into my Kroger account and make sure to add digital coupons to my card so I can save as much money as possible when I shop.

I used to spend hours cutting out coupons and looking for the best deals. But then I realized that I saved just as much with Kroger digital coupons and it’s a lot faster and easier to save.

Besides using coupons, I can save a lot when I purchase the p$$t products. In my experience, these products are just as good as the national brands. and they are so much cheaper. p$$t products help me stretch my food budget so much further. 

Right now you can clip some pretty awesome coupons to get p$$t products for FREE!

Quick and Easy Pizza And Salad For Busy Nights

Quick and Easy Pizza And Salad For Busy Nights #FreschettaFresh #CollectiveBias

If you have kids, you know that when they are involved in after-school activities, you are going to be pressed for time when it comes to making dinner. I have 3 kids, and I don’t know how we still manage to have dinner together every night. This is what my week looks like:

  • Monday – Oldest is at a club until 5:30pm
  • Tuesday – Oldest goes to an art club, and needs to be picked up around 6pm
  • Wednesday – Youngest child has gymnastics for an hour
  • Thursday – We have a group that meets in our house from 6:45-8:30pm

My middle child hasn’t even started Spring Little League. I can’t imagine how crazy our nights will be! Depending on our activity each night, I try to make a meal that makes dinnertime a little easier. For example, when I know I have to pick up one of my kids between 5-6, I try to put something in the slow cooker, so when we get home, dinner is ready.

Since we have people in our home on Thursday, I try to make something quick and easy. I need to get dinner on the table, and it has to be easy to clean up.  On these nights, Freschetta Naturally Rising Pizza and salad are on my meal plan. While the Pizza bakes, we can make the salad and get the table set.

Quick and Easy Pizza And Salad For Busy Nights #FreschettaFresh #CollectiveBias

My Italian Salad is so simple to make, and your kids will actually eat it. This recipe is from my Grandma. I have been eating it as long as I remember. She taught my mom, and my mom taught me. And now I have taught my son how to make it. He’s only 11, but some nights he will eat the whole bowl of salad before anyone else gets to it. I have learned to use the family sized bag of lettuce when I prepare this salad so everyone can have a plateful!
