The Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle!

Around these parts, we try to be healthy. I know most of you are the same way! But sometimes we fail miserably. Sometimes we fail on purpose for a sugar rush…but most of the time we fail accidentally from a simple lack of knowledge. When you want to be healthy, but you don’t have the right information to support that lifestyle…well, that’s frustrating! 

Luckily, the folks over at Ultimate Bundles have put together another fantastic bundle that remedies this bump-in-the-road! It’s the Ultimate Healthy Living bundle!

On the Road in August

All right, folks, NOW I’m excited. It’s September!!! And while I can hardly believe the time is going so quickly, I LOVE September. Any guesses why? (Think September 23…)

Fun Snacks for Healthy Kids!

It’s a busy life these days, isn’t it? Especially as we’re gearing up to finish out this school year! We’re always running to an important event, toting along the littles in our lives, and, although they normally go with the flow pretty well, every once in a while a drink or a snack is needed. If proper planning has fallen by the wayside, frazzled caregivers find it easiest to run through a drive-through and grab something for the hungry monsters, and while that meets the need in the moment, it defeats the purpose of raising healthy kids in the future!

I worked my way through college as a nanny for triplet boys, plus their baby brother. Snacks were a BIG deal! And the bigger the boys grew, the bigger their snacking appetites got! Sure, it was nice to have milk and cookies ready for them after school…but there are so many more healthy options that really are a lot more FUN! Today I want to share with you three options that can be as healthy but still as easy as you want them to be! Are you ready?

Advanced Water Exercise Workout Routines – A Guest Post!

First of all, let me take a quick second to congratulate Stephanie Phelps! She’s the winner of the Stubb’s BBQ giveaway! Wohoo for Stephanie!

And now…

You may remember a post earlier this year here on the blog called “Basic Tips to Get Started with Aqua Aerobics”. (If you don’t remember it, feel free to review it by CLICKING HERE!) Since we’re headed for COLD again, it’s a great time for a follow-up post, don’t you think?

But what does aqua aerobics have to do with domestication? Well, I’m glad you asked!

The first rule of domestication should really be to take care of yourself, because if yourself isn’t taken care of, how can you take care of anyone else? And aqua aerobics is a great way to take care of yourself so you can be fit and healthy and have lots of domestic energy…especially in the cold winter months that are ahead!

Kaitlin Gardner from An Apple Per Day would agree with me, I’m sure – that, of course, is why she’s today’s guest poster! Let’s see what she has to say…

Conveniently Healthy – With Steel and Grace!

If you’re a regular reader here on the Road to Domestication, then you know that, from time to time, I enjoy sharing stories about amazing people who have created an amazing product, or business – people who have taken an idea and really just RUN with it and started something incredible! I share these stories to inspire YOU to pick up the ideas that have been left behind in your life and run after them!

Today, we meet Mary.

I’ve known Mary for about 13 years now, and although she’s one of the smartest women I’ve ever met, I’ve never seen her do anything like this before! It’s pretty amazing! Have you heard of “salad in a jar”? Maybe you’ve seen it on Pinterest, something like this?

Well, Mary has taken “salad in a jar” to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Mary has created four kinds of salads (complete with custom dressings) and two kinds of snack cookies (everything with all-natural ingredients). She “jars” the salads, and customers order them via text, Facebook or her website. Then she delivers them!

Can you imagine? Being able to reach in your fridge and grab a fresh salad in a jar to take to work with you for lunch? Or even come home after a long day and grab a salad for each member of your family, totally prepared, right out of the fridge, for dinner?
