Protein Bakery Review/Giveaway

Personal Trainers, Mom's and Dad's and people obsessed with eating better you have looked to the right place The protein Bakery 
Did you know?? Our delicious protein packed products last up two weeks if kept in a cool dry place. 15 sec in the microwave brings out the fresh from the oven. All the products can be kept in the freezer up to three months. Brownies and Blondies taste great straight from the freezer. Everything is made in small batches and handled with care and love. Their is no gluten in the products. However we are baked in a facility that uses gluten in other product they produce, so we are NOT certified gluten free. 




The proof is in the baking So, we know the value of weights and measures. We chose the name Protein Bakery, for a good and healthy reason. Muscle-building protein is a huge component in all our delicious cookies, brownies, and blondies. Protein makes you feel fuller faster and prevents spikes in blood sugar levels. It's one way to keep the heart beat steady and the body in balance. Every delectable, guilt-free bite is high in dietary fiber, low in gluten, and delivers up to 5 times more protein than the average baked treat. 

These protein snacks are amazing I really enjoyed every single one of them my husband is a little picky so he didn't care for them but my daughter loved them also and these were gone in no time. My favorite would probably have to be the chocolate and peanut butter brownie.

This product was given to me for review purposes. In exchange for my honest opinion on this product. I was not paid for this review.

If each filter equates to 300 single-serve bottles, bobble’s collective success has helped to remove many millions of discarded plastic bottles from the environment.

The world saw what we saw: a sustainable future enabled by smart design. bobble is one step on that path, for consumers and for Move Collective. We’ve only begun. We’re peering around every corner, at each item in our everyday life, and asking ourselves, can we do better? Can we push the boundaries more? More often than not, the answer is yes.

We believe in design with a purpose Our first product bobble effectively pioneered a new category: personal, portable water filtration. bobble is a reusable, filtered water bottle engineered to change people’s drinking habits by slowing the mass consumption of single-serve water bottles.
Our journey to market has been a monster challenge. We are a small company based in New York City. bobble came together organically, as did the company behind it. Move Collective, is a collective of highly talented creatives, designers and original thinkers with discrete skills, united behind not only bright ideas but the task of bringing them to market and branding them. bobble was a true collective effort.

THE BOBBLE IS AMAZING THIS HELPS ME SO MUCH WITH DRINKING WATER AND IT IS SO HARD FOR ME. I LIKE THE FACT THAT IT FILTERS WATER AS YOU DRINK IT. IT IS ALSO A SQUEEZE BOTTLE WHICH HELPS TO REGULATE HOW FAST THE WATER IS COMING OUT!!

Mother's Day Gift Guide: Conserving Now Review/Giveaway


Gayle and Meghan are a mother and daughter team who care deeply about environmental issues.

Meghan is a lawyer that believes that lasting change requires community and legislative action. She is deeply committed to environmental live and blogs about conservation issues and news. She was inspired by cities such as San Francisco, Ca, and countries such as Ireland, in quests to rid their environment of toxic plastic bags. 

Gayle began her career as a first grade teacher who believes that early education creates positive life long habits. She was widely recognized for her innovative teaching style as one of the first educators to utilize computers in the classroom to teach reading. She soon became a state wide leader instructing other educators on how to teach students of all ages to read by composing and creating daily personal journals and story books on the computer.

Like so many others who are committed to bringing their own bags when shopping, we quickly realized how often we forget our bags in the car or at home. It was frustrating being in line at the store and realizing you forgot your bag. Obviously we were not the only ones with this problem. So, after much discussion, we set out to create and sell products that would help everyone remember to bring their own bags when shopping. Our goal was to offer a wide array of convenient, effective, and green reminder products. We also wanted to share our passion for reducing plastic bag consumption with our community and to encourage people to consume wisely. 

The bag I was sent to review is the single Envirosax bag in Savanna Series. This bag is very stylish and it has a ton of room for stuff. You could also use for a beach bag or if your just need to run to the store real quick. Check out their sticker to help remind you to take your bags into the store. 

Conserving now will us 100% of sponsorship proceeds toward funding classroom kits for schools.
* Provide teachers with comprehensive classroom resources.
* Are filled with lesson plans, activities and field trip ideas.
* Provide students with take-home items for their parents, including complimentary products designed to help them remember to bring their reusable bags.

100% of the profits from the products sold on the shop page goes toward funding classroom kits for schools and/or to offset the costs of the static cling distribution. 

This product was given to me for review purposes. In exchange for my honest opinion on this product. I was not paid for this review.
