It has been four weeks since I landed in Charleston and I am happy to report that things are going well. I sometimes need to pinch myself and make sure that this is really happening. I guess for a while, I just wasn't happy with myself, my direction, and where I was living. And lately, it just feels like it has all come together...FINALLY! No one said this journey through life was easy, but you know what is easy...ONLINE SHOPPING!
I mentioned that I was going to be working with Swanson Vitamins on a regular basis and I am looking forward to this partnership. I have been working with them over the past few years and it has always been a positive experience. The website has a HUGE selection. The prices are hard to beat. The shipping arrives on time. And most importantly, the customer service is fast, professional, and friendly. So if you haven't checked them out yet, here is your chance to!
It was nice to move here and get my cabinets and fridge stocked with great quality products to help me stay healthy and fueled. And I cannot forget Lucy. I love that Swanson Vitamins sells lots of products for dogs too. I think next time I am going to get her some shampoo and new treats as well. On my recent online shopping experience, my goal was to get products that I could use for meal prep and pair with a lot of my dinners. I also wanted to get some healthy snacks and more FATS of course.
What I purchased from Swanson Vitamins for under $100.00...
- Swanson Certified Organic Avocado Oil
- Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna
- Peanut Butter & Co Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter
- Lotus Foods Heirloom Forbidden Rice
- Lundberg Family Farms Black Japonica Rice
- Bob's Red Mills Premium Quality Lentils

- Navitas Organic Cacao Goji Power Snacks
- NOW Foods Grade A Dark Color Organic Maple Syrup

I have already used the lentils and the avocado oil for this Slow Cooker Lentil Curry. This recipe turned out delicious and I used the avocado oil and lentils. It made a decent amount of leftovers for me to have during the week. Always a major plus!
I actually have been adding coconut butter to my smoothies to switch things up. I also want to start smothering it on toast and protein pancakes too.
And another snack option...These little bites are jam packed with lots of nutrients to help me power through an early morning workout or an afternoon slump. Pair them with some nuts, a piece of fruit, or dip it into a nut butter jar. ENJOY!
