Phew. I told you in my last post that Kaylin had been sick, but that she was getting better. Well, apparently I didn’t knock on wood and she ended up with a fever for the majority of the weekend. Another trip to the Doctors office and…we may be on the mend (knock on wood ;)).
Other than taking care of sicky peanut, I did get to teach my two classes, fit in an easy run, spent lots of time with Josh & Kaylin, and went to a birthday party for my niece and nephew. I brought along this salad:
Not a real recipe for this. I mixed a giant bag of spinach with a smaller bag of romaine. I then topped the lettuce mixture with two cans of mandarin oranges (no sugar added, drained, rinsed, dried), a large container or strawberries, diced, raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
I brought along these two dressings. The sesame pineapple vinaigrette is amazing (notice the photo bomber).
I think the salad was a hit! What did you do this weekend?
Recently , I was contacted by Cloudstar to see if Frank would be interested in reviewing their Dynamo Dog™ Functional Treats*. Frank LOVES treats, so I knew he’d be in:
According to the company:
“We are a small, family owned company, and for more than a decade have been baking all natural, low allergen treats right here in the USA. Check us out at www.cloudstar.com.”
Adore that they’re made in the USA! They sent us four bags to review:
Dynamo Skin & Coat: “With salmon oil and vitamin E supplement, plus specially selected fruits, vegetables, and herbs you will be giving your dog a healthy and mouth watering treat.”
Dynamo Tummy: “With added probiotics, ginger, and fiber from pumpkin, plus specially selected fruits, vegetables, and herbs to ease digestion, you'll have one happy dog.”
Dynamo Hip & Joint: “With all the running and jumping dogs do in a day, they could use the added glucosamine and chondroitin, plus specially selected fruits, vegetables, and herbs to keep them feeling their best.”
Frank watched as I photographed all of the treats.
He tried the bacon & cheese hip and joint variety first. It was hard for me to take a photograph because someone was ready to sample.
If you have a dog, you should give these treats a go!
