Intentional Bites Planner from MyFreezEasy ~ My New Love! (And Review)

#sponsored #affiliate links included

Hello friends!

If you’ve read the FINCHNWREN blog for awhile, you know how my family and I just adore MyFreezEasy. I love their freezer meal planning system and recipes; in fact, those help my family eat healthily while they keep me from freaking out at the last minute every weeknight because I’m exhausted or I don’t know what to cook.

Now, Erin Chase, the MyFreezEasy creator, has developed an amazing new tool to help us track, design, and determine the eating and healthy living plan that we need.  It’s called the Intentional Bites Planner, and MyFreezEasy kindly sent me my very own copy (free!) to try out and review for you.  Better yet, it launches today!  And I have a code for a $10 discount for you that I’ll share at the end of this post!

 

 

What is the Intentional Bites Planner?

Erin Chase is a master at planning meals, getting the most for her grocery buck, and (of course) freezer meal planning.  However, she noticed in her own life that she felt better when she ate certain foods and not as well, when she ate others.  She thought, how could she begin to track those foods that helped her as well as eliminate those that did not?  Out of that experience, Erin developed the Intentional Bites Planner.  It is designed around these steps:

  • Deciding on your own eating plan
  • Keeping a journal and meal plans
  • Making movement a priority
  • Tracking for best results

All of these steps have the goals of enabling you to feel better, look better, and be better.

 

How I used the Intentional Bites Planner

The Intentional Bites Planner is divided into 3 sections; My Intentional Bites, My Food Journal, and My Meal Plans.  In the first section, I did a personal assessment.  (Which sounds overwhelming but wasn’t, at all.)  I recorded things like how I wanted to feel, or meals that were my favorites.  Then I wrote ideas for meals at home that I could plan ahead of time.  (It was a longer list than I thought it would be!)  There were also sections for hydration, supplements/vitamins/meds, and exercise.  (Don’t even ask me how this happened but once the homeschool year started I’ve hardly done ANY exercise!  Ack.)

 

 

Section 2, My Food Journal, gave me a place to record my food and drink intake each day.  Now, THAT was truly eye-opening.  I really thought I was doing a LOT better on food and daily hydration than I actually was.  I start out well.  I drink 16 oz. of water every morning when I get up.  Then I have a cup of coffee.  And I often eat fresh spinach and eggs for breakfast.  (I know that may sound gross to you…but I try to get a certain amount of fiber in each day and a breakfast salad really helps me on my way.)

But, the longer the day goes on and the more tired I become, the more I may depend on a Dr Pepper or as much coffee as I can stuff into my body.  Wow.  I sort of knew that…but seeing it in black and white on a page was pretty eye-opening.  However, each page is pretty encouraging at the same time because you can also list how you actually WANT to eat and drink.  And, how you feel as a result.

Section 3 provides shopping list/meal plans, and weekly meal planners.  I loved those!  I haven’t had a calendar page before which gives me space to write out every meal I’m planning for the week.  That was the best visual image plus it also helped me to not have the same kind of meal or the same kind of protein every single night.

 

What I think about this planner

I have to admit this to you.  I LOVE planners.  Lesson planners, personal planners, school planners.  I love them all.  So, it wasn’t a huge leap to think that I would love the Intentional Bites Planner as well.  And, I did!  It is well made and sturdy.  The pages are nicely printed, the spiral works beautifully, and the whole thing is just gorgeous.

But it is so much more than a pretty package.  I think that we all imagine or know that we could eat better, or plan our days and meals more effectively.  However, actually making that happen can feel horribly overwhelming.  And even though I really enjoy to-do lists and planning, I never really got past weekly meal planning or freezer cooking.  And when life got crazy or my schedule got too full, it was way too easy to just default to takeout or fast food.  I was really missing the consistency portion of choosing the foods that were best for me and my family…and then making those meals happen.

The tools in the Intentional Bites Planner have really helped me to stop, take a serious look at my schedule and my days, and then begin to make choices and plans to help me and my family.  When I first heard about this planner, I wasn’t really sure that it was a tool that I needed because I think I choose good foods overall; and I’m not needing to eliminate certain types of foods or pursuing a diet per se.  However, what I needed most was what this planner provides; a tool to help me consider my eating and scheduling choices, to think through my life (and the margin I so often have lacked in the past) and to create a plan that will help us pursue health.  What an incredible gift.

I do, happily, recommend the Intentional Bites Planner to you.  It is a fantastic, non-overwhelming tool for anyone who wants to develop a healthy life and a healthful eating and exercise plan.  And, it is fun to use!  And, I believe, over time it will enable us to build the habits and tools we desperately need or want to live well.  And, for those of us who have children, it will help us model these things for our kids as well.

Enjoy!  –Wren

The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible (for kids) ~ Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/28/18)

#sponsored

Hi friends!  Are you interested in great devotional Bibles and Bible stories to share with your children and family?  FlyBy/Propeller Promotions sent me a free copy of Zonderkidz’ new The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible to use and review.  And, I’ll be giving away another copy to one reader at the end of this post!

 

 

About The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible

Written by Doris Wynbeek Rikkers and gorgeously illustrated by Fernando Juarez, this colorful book of Bible stories based on Scriptures includes verses and accounts from both the New and Old Testaments.  In total, there are 40 different Bible stories!  Each one starts with a verse that describes what God or the Holy Spirit are doing, and the biblical reference for the story.  Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find in this book, first from the Old Testament:

  • The Spirit Makes All Things New Again
  • The Spirit’s Gift to Joseph
  • The Spirit Inspires Bezalel
  • The Spirit Prepares Others to Help Moses
  • The Spirit Changes Saul into a Leader
  • God’s Spirit Speaks Through David

And, from the New Testament, you’ll find:

  • Simeon Sees Through the Eyes of the Spirit
  • The Spirit Comes Like a Dove
  • Jesus Makes a Promise
  • The Spirit Takes Philip Away
  • The Holy Spirit Fills Saul
  • The Fruit of the Spirit
  • and tons more!

This hardback book is sturdy and the illustrations and pages inside are very glossy and eye-catching.

 

What I thought about The Spirit of God Illustrated Bible

First, I love the illustrations.  They are gorgeous, colorful, full of life and fun.  They really bring the Bible stories and characters to life in an exciting and interesting way; for adults as well as children.  I really enjoy Fernando Juarez’s art.

I really liked the Bible stories the author chose to use.  We’re familiar, of course, with Adam and Eve or Joseph and his dreams.  But what about Simeon?  Jahaziel?  Ezekiel?  Zechariah the priest?  Or Philip, in the book of Acts?  These are fantastic people whose interactions with God our children might not know about, and they are great additions to this illustrated story Bible.

 

 

The stories are bite-sized and don’t contain a lot of text (although the important factors are mentioned) so they would be great for reading aloud to little children, or for devotional times with the whole family before bed (or at any other time).  It would also be a fantastic addition to a children’s Sunday school class.

I like that the book is about the Holy Spirit and His interaction with people throughout human history (well, at least, biblical history).  We learn a lot over the courses of our Christian lives about God and Jesus.  But the Holy Spirit is often the less-seen, unnamed person of the Trinity who is still active and at work.  It is a great reminder that God is at work; and that the Holy Spirit has an important purpose!

Review & Giveaway ~ UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION (ends 9/22/18)

Hello, friends!

I have an opportunity to share our thoughts with you about the new movie about Louis Zamperini.  It’s called   Unbroken: Path to Redemption, opening in theaters September 14, 2018.  FlyBy/Propeller Promotions offered us the opportunity for a private, in-home screening of the film just ahead of its theater openings.  And in addition, I have two Fandango movie tickets (codes) for one winner to be blessed with, so he or she can also see this amazing movie!!  (Just know the Fandango codes will expire by October 14, 2018 or when Unbroken: Path to Redemption leaves the theater, whichever happens first. So if you’re the winner, use them by then!)

 

 

 

Who was Louis Zamperini?

Like me, you might have read Laura Hillenbrand’s remarkable book, Unbroken, about the life and wartime experiences of Louis Zamperini, Olympic runner and WWII veteran.  Zamperini survived 47 days in a lifeboat in the Pacific ocean after his plane was shot down.  Then, when they were finally rescued, they were taken to a Japanese prison camp where he was a prisoner of war for several years.  He finally was able to return to the U.S., where he met and married his wife (of 54 years), Cynthia.  Trouble had come in the form of serious post-traumatic stress as a result of his days on the lifeboat (enduring sharks, no food, little water) and the regular abuse of the guards and officials at the prison camps.  Upon his return home, Louis had trouble finding a job and dealt with the nightmares and terrors he was reliving from his wartime experiences by heavy drinking.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption picks up after Louis returns to his family in California, before he meets his wife, and it’s the story of the depths to which he falls before he is eventually rescued.  My husband and I watched it together; I’d recommend it for audiences of at least high school age, just because of the terrors and struggles Louis endures, and the heavy drinking he embarks on.

This movie is a story of what happened to, and happens to Louis physically.  It’s also very much a story of Louis’ suffering on a mental, emotional, and physical level as he is unable to correct his own path and deliver himself from the deep suffering and wounding he’s experiencing.  I am trying not to give any spoilers to those unfamiliar with Louis’s life story.  But I will tell you that help and hope eventually come, and that they come at a Billy Graham Crusade in Los Angeles.

 

Our thoughts about Unbroken: Path to Redemption

I loved a lot about this movie; but parts of it were very hard to watch.  (Just like many parts of the Unbroken book were devastating to read.  Just a terrible amount of suffering that Louis had to endure.)  I thought they got the look of the 1940s and early 1950s exactly right, from the makeup/clothing/hairstyles, to the cars and buildings.  Louis’s and Cynthia’s love story was wonderful to watch as it unfolded.  And while the viewer will deplore Louis’s choices and actions, they’re certainly understandable as a man tries to deal with unimaginable horrors.  Especially in post-WWII America, where mental health treatment was (I imagine) vastly different than it is today.

Hope does come for Louis and Cynthia, though, at that Billy Graham Crusade I mentioned earlier.  Billy Graham is played by Graham’s actual grandson Will Graham, and he does a great job portraying his grandfather (from the look, to the accent, to the manner of speaking.)  The rest of the cast is also fantastic, whether it’s Samuel Hunt and Merritt Patterson as Louis and Cynthia, or the supporting cast members as Louis’ Italian-American family or Bird, the cruel official from the prison camp.

I love this film’s take on the spiritual journey Louis Zamperini is on.  His remarkable changes, and resulting life choices, are both dramatic yet very believable.  Also, there are some wonderful interviews and camera footage of Louis at various points in his life as well as Billy Graham introducing Louis at a crusade where he shared his own story.  I definitely recommend this, but probably just for teens and adults.

Unbroken: Path to Redemption was produced by Matthew Baer, producer of the original Unbroken film, and released by Pure Flix.  Louis’ son Luke Zamperini also served as an executive producer.

 

Now–you have a chance to win!

FLASH Giveaway ~ and review of Tori Kelly’s newest CD, “Hiding Places” (ends 9/15/18)

#sponsored

Hi friends!

I have a FLASH Giveaway for you…ending this weekend on 9/15/18.  So be sure to enter right away if this is up your alley!  FlyBy/Propeller Promotions sent me a free copy of Tori Kelly’s newest CD, Hiding Places, to review, as well as one to give away to one reader.  Read on for my impressions of the CD and your chance to enter to win!

 

 

Who is Tori Kelly?

Tori Kelly was nominated for Best New Artist in the Grammy Awards in 2016.  On her sophomore album Unbreakable Smile she wanted to include a song which reflected the gospel music she’d loved all her life.  Her manager Scooter Braun connected her with music great Kirk Franklin and the rest is history!  The one song she’d intended to do became an entire album.  Here’s what Tori has to say about her hopes for Hiding Places:  “One of the things I want for this album is for people to feel uplifted and encouraged when they listen. I want them to know that, no matter what they’re going through, there’s a God who loves them so much and so unconditionally, and there’s always a reason to feel hope. That’s what I really believe in, and I want everyone out there to hear my heart.”  I love that!  In a world when we may feel beaten down or as though we don’t measure up, that’s an awesome message to remind us of the God who loves us so amazingly.

The title of Hiding Places comes from Psalm 32:7, which reads:  “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” (NIV)  The songs were written by Kirk Franklin or by Tori and Kirk together.  With a strong, joyful R&B flavor, this CD will delight listeners.

 

What you’ll find on Hiding Places

Hiding Places‘ songs are sometimes sung solo by Tori and other times, in a duet fashion with other artists such as Franklin, Lecrae, and Jonathan McReynolds.  The words speak deeply and honestly to struggle and challenges faced, but always return to the basic truth that God is with us; that He does hide us and deliver us.

Some of my favorite songs include “Just As Sure,” “Psalm 42,” “Questions,” and “Never Alone.” Some of my favorite lyrics include these:

“I’ve cried many rivers, walked through some pain
I’ve seen my world crumble, and I’ve carried the shame
But I know somebody, He calls me His own
I can hear Heaven singing out, oh you’re never alone”

Or:

“Oh so don’t, don’t let Sunday fool ya
Here’s my hallelujah
Every single day
I’m running to your grace”

Tori’s voice is rich and full, and she has a pretty incredible range.  Her words intimately convey the struggles we all face and the desire we have to still hang with God.  And the music is, by turns, joyful, contemplative, triumphant.

If you’d like to check out Tori’s “Never Alone” with Kirk Franklin (and an amazing choir) you can check it out by following the highlighted link to YouTube.

Kwik Stix: A Review, a Mini-Art Lesson for You, and a Giveaway (ends 9/21/18)

#sponsored

 

Hi friends!  I have a new set from Kwik Stix to share with you…and another set for one reader to win!

Kwik Stix has been a family favorite art media of ours for years.  From time to time, we are privileged to receive a new set of Kwik Stix from The Pencil Grip, Inc. to use to create art in our home.  Recently, we received a gorgeous 12-pack of Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint in Metalix.  So fun!  Let me tell you more about them and I have a 6-Pack set of Metalix Kwik Stix to give away at the end of the post.

 

 

What are Kwik Stix?

Kwik Stix are solid tempera paint sticks.  They give you all the richness and beauty of paint without the mess.  With Kwik Stix, you don’t need water, cups, paint, or brushes.  The tempera paint sticks are housed in plastic containers that are much like glue sticks.  Like glue sticks, they have a cap and a roller which enables the user to roll the paint sticks up and down.

Kwik Stix are designed for children ages 3 and up.  They are non-toxic, nut-, egg-, and gluten-free.  They dry almost immediately after they’re applied.  And, they can be used on paper, wood, cardboard, canvas, and many other surfaces.  (We’ve used them on most of those!)  They come in regular and thin styles.  These Metalix Kwik Stix are the regular size, and measure at a width of about 3/4″ wide and the paint sticks themselves are 3 1/2″.  They’re just perfect for preschoolers’ hands as well as bigger kids’ hands.

Because they’re so self-contained, the Kwik Stix are perfect for travel or car use.  They’re amazing to use at home for either fun or school.  We’ve loved to use our Kwik Stix in our fine art studies in our homeschool.  Here’s the way we used them as we learned about artist Mark Rothko recently!

 

New Metalix 12-Pack

So—we got to try the newest Kwik Stix 12-pack of Metalix tempera paint sticks.  These come in a gorgeous array of colors:  white, yellow, reddish orange, fuchsia, lime green, dark green, navy, purple, gold, bronze, silver, and black.  Each stick is a beautiful color with metallic flecks in the color, which translate beautifully to paper.

Learning about Rothko with Kwik Stix

Mark Rothko was born in in 1903 Russia (now Latvia) as Markus Yakovlevitch Rothkowitz.  He and his family immigrated to the United States via Ellis Island in 1913.  His family ended up in Portland, Oregon, where he completed high school.  He attended Yale University for several years but did not graduate, athough he received an honorary degree from Yale 46 years later.

Rothko relocated to New York City and attended Parsons The New School for Design in the early 1920s.  He painted in the Modernist style, and was also influenced by German Expressionists.  He taught both painting and clay sculpture at the Center Academy of the Brooklyn Jewish Center for 22 years, as he painted his own artworks.  He painted for the WPA in the 1930s.  During this decade, Rothko began to use color fields in his artwork, using color to express idea and emotion rather than recognizable figures.

In 1938, Rothko became a U.S. citizen.  In 1940, he shortened his name from Markus Rothkowitz to Mark Rothko.  Hitler was growing in power and Rothko was fearful of both deportation and anti-Semitism.  During WWII, influenced by Surrealists like Dali and his work grew more and more abstract.  Rothko began to use huge canvases and enormous blocks of color.  Critics called this new style “multiforms” which became the style Rothko was most known for.

 

How to create in the style of Rothko using Kwik Stix

Kwik Stix are perfect to use to create your own Rothko imitation!  He loved using vivid, complementary colors to express ideas.  Here’s what we did!

  1. First, Google or Bing “Mark Rothko paintings” and find a painting that particularly appeals to you.  (We selected two of his works called “No. 61” and “White Center” for ours.)
  2. Since Rothko preferred using vertical or “portrait” background for his paintings (instead of horizontal ones), your students can do the same.  Take a sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock and cut it in half so that you have two 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ sheets.  Turn the sheet into portrait format.
  3. Pull out the Kwik Stix colors that match the paintings.
  4. Start with the lightest colors first and color from side to side.  Work from lightest to darkest and continue to color.  Notice the shadings Rothko used and add additional color where needed.
  5. We used paper napkins to rub different textures into the paint.  Because Kwik Stix is designed to dry so quickly, you have to move quickly on this part.  It’s a great tool to add to a Rothko imitation, though; even though he used large blocks of color he’s renowned for the texture he painted with.
  6. Be sure you cover your entire sheet of paper; paint all the way to the sides.
  7. Ta-da!  Your own Rothko art study.

New from MyFreezEasy.com: Intentional Bites Planner

#affiliate #sponsored #partner

 

 

You all know that I am a huge fan of MyFreezEasy!  They absolutely saved our dinners, especially during the school year or busy times when I’m exhausted at dinner time.

MyFreezEasy taught me how to freezer cook.  Simply put, that’s just putting ingredients together in ziploc bags or baking containers and popping them into the freezer.  Then, all you have to do each day is pull out the ziplocs, add them to the slow cooker, Instant Pot, stove top or oven (with a little liquid) and cook.  That saves you all the meal preparation at dinner time that can seem so overwhelming (and make you want to order takeout).

Their recipes are also amazing.  We’ve enjoyed everything from orange chicken, to enchilada soup, to black bean oven tacos, to Dr Pepper chicken, to teriyaki chicken.  And so much more.  All I have to do is add the ingredients to our weekly shopping list, set aside some time to prep the meals and pop them into the freezer, and then I have a week’s worth (or more) of dinners prepared.  Then each morning I pop them into the crockpot and dinner is ready to go.

I love MyFreezEasy!

And now, MyFreezEasy has a way for you to help you find the best food for your body.

 

Now available from MyFreezEasy…the Intentional Bites Planner

Erin Chase, the creator of MyFreezEasy, has written what sounds like an awesome new planner for families.  She noticed that she felt better when she ate certain things (and probably worse when she ate others).  So (being the food and healthy eating guru she is) she created the Intentional Bites Planner.  It’s both a food journal and meal planner designed to help you create meal plans to help you (and your family) feel your very best.

 

And today through tomorrow (Monday, September 3 at midnight CST) you can pre-order the Intentional Bites Planner and get extra bonuses!  These include: a Habits & Routine Tracker ($5 value); a Weekly Habit Tracker ($5 value); a Daily Habit Tracker ($5 value); an Understanding Your Habits Worksheet ($5 value); access to Secret Facebook Support Group ($50 value); Clean Eats Freezer Meal Plan ($10 value); and a digital copy of the planner ($25 value).  That’s a total added value of $105!

Check it out.  I can’t wait to check it out myself!

Enjoy!  –Wren
