Through my relationship with FitFluential, I was recently given the opportunity to be an ambassador for Core Power who is a sponsor for the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. I love the Olympics. The #TampaTrio and I love the speed skating and ice skating, and the downhill skiing. We love it all.
What is Core Power? Core Power is a real milk protein drink made from fresh, lowfat, lactose-free milk and real honey. No chalky flavor, no lactose, or preservatives. It comes in four different flavors chocolate, vanilla, banana, and strawberry banana. It comes with either 26g of protein or a lower calorie version with 20g of protein.
Why choose Core Power?
- Milk protein contributes to muscle development while the natural carbohydrates of honey provide the energy to rebuild muscle and glycogen stores. Consumption of carbs with protein after a workout optimizes muscle recovery and growth.
- Made from fresh milk and real honey, one great-tasting, lactose-free serving of Core Power provides athletes and fitness enthusiasts with 26 grams of high quality fresh milk proteins, consisting of 21 grams of casein proteins and 5 grams of whey proteins. The light versions still pack a heck of a punch, serving up 20 grams of the same high quality fresh milk proteins.
- The unique nutritional profile of Core Power uses the best proteins and delivers calories that your body can actually use.
- Milk’s unique ratio of whey and casein proteins builds lean muscle while its vitamins and minerals keep the body healthy.
- Honey boosts athletic performance and endurance while reducing muscle fatigue. (source)
Core Power sent me this great fit kit (plus 3 full size bottles of the Core Power: chocolate, strawberry banana, and banana) and they want to send one to one of you!
My favorite item is the Core Power Camelbak. I love Camelbak water bottles and can never have too many!
Haley really enjoyed the chocolate Core Protein shake and the ball. Matthew really enjoyed the ball. Here's a bit of advice...KEEP THE BALL AWAY FROM BALL LOVING LABRADORS.
Included in the kit is an insulated water bottle, workout towel, stability ball, duffel bag, and yoga mat.
The entire month of January you can get $5 off a case of Core Power on Amazon.They also have a great workout for the new year on their blog that requires minimal equipment.

Since coming off the Whole 30 in May, I've been up and down, back and forth with experimenting with grains, and other foods. And I've gained weight. No surprise there. I've been honest about that. I also haven't been meal planning. I've been winging it. To that end, I've decided that it's time to go back to the no grain way of life, and I've joined a great Facebook group who share wonderful ideas. I also received a copy of Nom Nom Paleo from my friend Caroline and what a wonderful book it is! Thanks again, Caroline.
I also ordered (on Caroline's recommendation), Well Fed, and Well Fed 2. Those books should be here tomorrow (love Amazon Prime!!)
I receive a produce co-op every Friday afternoon. For my meal planning I will base the meals around that weekly produce. You can check out Carlita's Bowl here: http://www.carlitasbowl.org/
My oldest daughter really enjoys cooking. Her and I went through Nom Nom Paleo and marked all the recipes we want to try.
And then we sat on the couch with our cookbooks, our list of veggies from the co-op and the meats I have frozen (I bought 1/4 cow a few months ago and still have lots of beef) and we planned this weeks meals. I am a pen/paper type of planner. I firmly believe that actively involving the children in planning our meals is teaching them good habits for life.
Here is our plan for this week.
Sunday-Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Monday- Kabob Koobideh with Garlic Mashed Cauliflower
Tuesday-Kidney Bean Chili. This recipe comes from the Eat for your Type. And this recipe comes from the Type B book, as my husband and kids are type B. I am on O, so I have to be a bit more selective. We also have boyscouts tonight, so it will be nice to have a meal that cooks itself all day long.
Wednesday-Crispy Smashed Chicken with coconut pineapple rice.
Thursday-Breakfast Egg Salad.We always have breakfast on Thursday. It's been our tradition for years.
Friday-Leftovers with a salad
Saturday-James' surprise. He'll cook, and we'll see if I can eat it.
And there you have it. What are you eating this week?
