Foodie Favorites + Life Happenings

Hey there, friends! It’s been awhile. Life has gotten pretty darn busy around here! Between work, one of my friend’s bachelorette’s party, planning for my sister’s bridal shower (and now planning her upcoming bachelorette), studying for my personal training cert, and just STUFF – something had to give. If you’re still reading this post today, THANK YOU for sticking with me. Joyfully Jenna is still up and running, and more posts on their way! I’ll have a post on my sister’s bridal shower coming up with lots of fun DIYs and planning tips (a little sneak at one the pictures from the shower below), one of my new go-to lunch recipes, and some more fun stuff. Stay tuned!

Today I thought I’d stop by with some of my current Foodie Favorites. Fun, right? I always love to read other blogger’s posts like this, so I hope you’ll enjoy this one! I’ve found some products over the past month or so that I really LOVE and I think you will too. Let’s get right into it!

1. Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning 

This stuff has been EVERYWHERE! I think I’ve seen it show up on about 10 different foodie blogger’s Instagram stories. BUT man, this stuff is good. If you like everything bagels you’re going to love this stuff. My favorite way to use it is on my eggs in the morning for breakfast. So darn GOOD! Definitely grab one (or ten) of these on your next Trader Joe’s run.

2. REBBL's Dark Chocolate Protein Shake

So, I pass Whole Foods on the way home from my gym, which can be very dangerous and quite $$$$. A couple of weeks ago I decided to stop in after taking GRIT and Body Pump (I’ll have another post on these two classes soon – they’re my absolute current favorites!) and I was looking for something high in protein to refuel my muscles after the lengthy workout. I had seen the REBBL brand pop up here and there on different foodie accounts I follow, so I decided to give it a go. I chose the dark chocolate flavor and was more than pleasantly surprised. No chalky taste, just pure chocolatey goodness. With 16 grams of plant protein and the delicious taste…what more could a girl ask for? 

3. Health Ade's Kombucha

Oh, Whole Foods. It’s just so dangerous, guys, I’m tellin’ ya! To be honest, I never really got super into kombucha. I really wanted to like it because of all of its’ health benefits, but I never found a flavor I loved…until I tried Health Ade’s pink lady flavor AND their ginger lemon flavor. Oh. My. GOODNESS. If you’ve tried kombucha before and weren’t a fan, I encourage you to grab one of these the next time you’re at Whole Foods. I could drink these all day long. BONUS: Whole Foods has been running a 2 for $6 deal pretty frequently. Be on the lookout!

4. Califa Farms Coffee Creamer 

Last, but certainly NOT least. This coffee creamer is my new favorite, hands down. They have a few different flavors, and my go-to is the vanilla. I’ve found it at Whole Foods, Target, and my local Giant grocery store. If you’re a coffee lover that likes to add a little bit of creaminess and sweetness, this is for you!

Alright, pals! I’m off to do some studying, but I CAN’T believe I forgot to mention that my sister and future brother-in-law GOT A PUPPY a few weeks ago. So, I’ll leave you with a picture of Mac, my fur nephew. Enjoy!
