Taffy Plus Size Workout Clothing-Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: I was provided with a pair of Taffy Essential Capri's to review as part of my association with Fit Approach, LLC. 

 

For many women finding comfortable, yet attractive workout clothing can be a challenge. When you are plus size (meaning size 10 or above) that can be an even greater challenge.

In the beginning of my weight loss and fitness journey, I was wearing a size 32. I wore drab workout clothing because that's all I could find online.

I loved when I was finally able to fit into "real" workout clothing. Clothing that had a splash of color and fit well.

As I've been on this weight loss and fitness journey for 5 years now, I've had my share of workout clothing but nothing quite like Taffy.

Taffy has a  wide, flat, no-roll waistband and also features a no slip grip and is streamlined below-the-knee.

 

I picked the pair you see pictured above. The Essential Capri is ultra comfortable and attention-grabbing and they have been designed to complement your shape and curves, providing compression and moisture management. I chose size 1X which is a size 12/14. They fit me perfectly through the butt, and legs. I loved that when I did burpees (well, I don't love that I did burpees) the capri's didn't roll down!! Huge plus!

And Taffy would like to give YOU a pair just like the ones I received. Enter through the Rafflecopter giveaway below!

Heart Healthy Kale

Kale is a super food. And it's really good for your heart.

From WebMD "Kale, also known as borecole, is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. A leafy green, kale is available in curly, ornamental, or dinosaur varieties. It belongs to the Brassica family that includes cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, collards, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts."

Kale stands out because it has the broadest range of antioxidants and also the highest levels of several specific ones, along with Vitamin K and a type of Vitamin E that seems to be heart-healthy.

Keeping my heart healthy and teaching my children how to keep their heart healthy is one of my jobs as their mother. My oldest daughter loves to cook with me, so when this batch of kale arrived from Nature's Greens we were excited to see what we'd make with it.

 We were looking through cookbooks, looking up recipes online when I just looked at Haley and said "kale chips." She rolled her eyes at me. See, I've tried Kale Chips a few time before and they have never come out good. But I was determined this time and used a recipe modified from Nom Nom Paleo.

They were a hit! Haley loved them, and so did the other 2 kids, my husband and me too. Smile

This is what I did: Cook them with just oil and then season when they come out. I combined grey sea salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and Italian seasoning and tossed them in the seasoning. So good. Haley called it the Magic Spice because I have never made good kale chips before. Tongue Out

I'll be honest. They really were labor intensive because I wanted to make sure that they were laying flat so that they would cook properly and not that many would fit on a baking tray. I couldn't keep up with the demand! The family was eating them faster than I could make them.

But really, that's a good thing. I found a recipe that works for us and the Tampa Trio gets all the heart healthy benefits of Kale.

You can follow Nature's Greens on Pinterest where you'll find great recipes for all sorts of greens, including kale!

Do your kids like Kale? How do you prepare it?
