Eating Paleo This Year? Win This Paleo Grain- Free Granola

I struggle with having enough variety in my morning breakfast choices because I’m not a fan of traditional breakfast foods.  Eggs? No way. Waffles? I’ll be hungry again in ten minutes. I’ll admit, sometimes I’ve skipped breakfast altogether, powering through on coffee alone. We all know just how unhealthy that is and I didn’t want to continue this in 2018.
I’ve always liked Granola, so when I received an email about reviewing KitchFix Grain-Free Paleo Granola, I was intrigued. I thought perhaps incorporating more Paleo-friendly food into my morning routine would be just the thing I need to get me back in the habit of eating breakfast.

This is a sponsored post for KitchFix. I received the products mentioned in today's post as a thank you for my time. No further compensation was given. All opinions are my own. 

About KitchFix and CEO Chef Josh:

I love trying new products, especially small businesses that got their start from a desire to help others and to serve their communities. That’s what I found when I visited the KitchFix website. I really liked what I learned. KitchFix CEO Chef Josh states that they are committed to using the best, most flavorful ingredients, and raising the standard on healthy snacks. 

I enjoyed reading how KitchFix got its start in Chicago when Chef Josh took his desire to help clients feed their bodies well.

Chef Josh has always loved making people’s lives healthier and happier with great-tasting food. As a personal chef to clients overcoming cancer, he began exploring the healing power of food. He followed an anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense cooking plan that avoided common allergens like dairy and gluten to ensure his clients’ bodies were thriving from the food they ate.”



About Grain-Free Paleo Granola:


 About Grain-Free Paleo Honey Pecan Granola:



According to their website, this is the combination that started it all - the original Grain-Free Paleo Granola.  They slow-roast a core blend of nuts and seeds to perfection in coconut oil with cinnamon, sea salt and just a touch of pure maple syrup.  Then, they top it off with plump Thompson raisins and coconut flakes to create our savory Original Mix. They left out Gluten, grain, dairy, and refined sugars, leaving only healthy, delicious, Paleo granola.

I absolutely LOVE this blend on Greek yogurt. I add a piece of fruit and this tasty breakfast stays with me for hours. I’m not hungry for over 4 hours. My family loves it too, preferring to eat it by the handful as a quick snack. 


 About Grain-Free Paleo Honey Pecan Granola:


KitchFix Grain-Free Honey Pecan Granola #ad



KitchFix says when they came up with our Grain-Free Paleo Honey Pecan Granola; they wanted to make every bite taste like fresh pecan pie. With a mixture of crunchy pecans and other nuts and seeds sweetened with natural honey, pure maple syrup and just a touch of cinnamon, it truly does taste as good as a slice of pecan pie. This is a perfect on the go granola snack too. My husband loves it because it’s so full of nuts, it doesn’t feel or taste like any granola he’s ever had. 


Our Thoughts: 

We give these two Paleo Grain-Free Granola’s two thumbs up! Way, way up! I will definitely purchase them for us in the future. You can learn more about their granola ingredients, other flavors, and products and use their store locator by visiting KitchFix .

Welcome to WAHM Tip Wednesday

Hello and happy fourth Wednesday of January!  If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I normally like to post a Wordless Wednesday post featuring some of my nature pics like last week’s post here. I’ve done that for years and honestly, it’s high time I shook things up here on My WAHM Plan, so once a month I'm going to share a WAHM Tip!

 I want to offer helpful content for busy work at home Moms (or Moms who would like to be), so I brainstormed ideas and one kept rising to the top. Go back to basics of this blog and start sharing work at home tips  I've learned in my almost 19 year’s experience as a WAHM. I feel this year is the perfect time to start sharing my knowledge with more and more Moms look for ways to add additional income.

Pretty and Fresh Makeup look with Neutrogena





Having teen daughters is fun and challenging and oh, so rewarding.  I look at them and see parts of me interspersed here and there with their own unique personalities and styles.  Both daughters got their love of makeup straight from me, but Melissa must have got in that line twice! From a very early age, she has loved playing with makeup. Once we gave her permission to wear makeup, she was in heaven and quickly mastered makeup application and techniques.

Noelle by Greg Kincaid Book Review

I normally wouldn’t start a book series with the last book, but I did just that last month when on a whim, I received an email from Blogging for Books about of Noelle by Greg Kincaid. I had never heard of the McCray family, the cornerstone of a series of novels by Mr. Kincaid, but when I saw the snowy scene and the adorable little dog on the cover of Noelle, I was drawn in.

Take time to be creative this month

I adore January for a multitude of reasons. My youngest daughter was born this month.  Linens and home goods are on sale this month. I get to plan and organize a lot of things in January. Filling out new calendars and planners for the year is time well spent in my opinion. As I was organizing my stack of planners and notebooks, I noticed I had several craft and hobby books I needed to find a home for as well. That’s when I realized that unless I made time to be creative this month (and every month of the year), I would need to block out time to allow myself to enjoy hobbies and creative endeavors.  January is the perfect time to be creative! Dust off one of your hobbies, or start a new one. Read on for some creative ideas.
