Add Wellness To Your Spring Cleaning List with PowerBar’s NEW Clean Whey Protein Bars

I assume by now that you are knee-deep in some spring cleaning. The house, the cars, the closet, the kid’s rooms, the pantry, the basement. It’s just that time of the year. I’ve been on my own kick, not only just with the cleaning of all the things, but also of the cleaning up of my health. I’ve been on a bender the last two months eating right, exercising, sleeping more, and just taking better care of my 40 year old self. I’m on the way, but this is a lifetime change thing right now. I’m in it for the long haul. Because of that, I’m also looking out for new and awesome ways to eat well and do better for my body.

I’ve been really getting into PowerBar’s NEW Clean Whey Protein Bars! These are perfect for me. I’m all about having smaller meals, 2-3 small snacks, and more lean protein each day. It’s been working. I’m no where near as hungry, so I avoid getting to the point where I’m starving and trying to eat everything. These really fit in perfectly with my new MO as they are a terrific high protein, low net carb alternative to the traditional protein bar.

Check out the highlights:

  • An awesome 20g of high quality protein – whey protein isolate is fast acting to quickly repair muscles, while milk protein isolate aids in long lasting energy and satiety
  • Only 2g of sugar and 190-200 calories!
  • Available now in delicious flavors Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and White Fudge Raspberry

Whether chowed down before, during, or after a workout as a healthy snack or meal replacement, these new Clean Whey bars offer great nutrition featuring cleaner ingredient labels and no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors. They are fantastic, really. Something to consider as an easy, great-on-the-go snack option perfectly paired with some water and a nice piece of fruit. You’ll feel like a million bucks making the change. Trust me. Give them a shot and they may just help change the way you eat every day.

Hard Rock Yankee Stadium: The Perfect Spot Before, During, and After The Games

hard-rock-yankee-stadium-liam-and-bill-8-16-12 hard-rock-yankee-stadium-liam-and-bill-8-16-2

Liam and I were lucky enough to be invited to attend an NYCFC MLS soccer match at Yankee Stadium recently. Our amazing hosts were the Hard Rock Cafe located inside Yankee Stadium. Yes, there is a Hard Rock inside Yankee Stadium, and it’s just about as awesome as you would think it would be. It’s a great spot…with access even if you are not attending a Yankee or NYCFC game. It’s literally the perfect place to go and enjoy yourself before, during, and even after the game. Why arrive and leave during the crush when everyone else is when you can hang out and relax while eating, drinking, and being merry? It sounds like a silly question because it IS a silly question.

The Hard Rock is all about music, and there’s plenty of that there, but given it’s historic setting, it’s also all about the sports. TVs everywhere with all the games and game-related specials to match the excitement on the field. Two of my favorites are the “7th Inning Sip” during baseball games (beginning at the seventh inning) and the “91st Minute” at the end of all NYCFC soccer games.

During each happy hour, fans will receive discounts on drinks and ½ off on appetizers when they dine at the bar or outside patio area. Here are the details on the awesome:

“7th Inning Sip” at Hard Rock Cafe Yankee Stadium:

  • When:  Happy Hour begins at the start of the 7th Inning
  • What:   Appetizer and Drink specials include:
    • ½ off appetizers (wings, tupelo, skins, nachos); excluding Jumbo Combo and Flatbreads
    • $3 Domestic Beers
    • $4 Import Beer
    • $4 Wines
    • $5 Cocktails (single liquor/mixer)

“91st Minute” at Hard Rock Cafe Yankee Stadium

  • When:  Happy Hour begins at the end of the match
  • What:   Appetizer and Drink specials include:
    • ½ off appetizers (wings, tupelo, skins, nachos); excluding Jumbo Combo and Flatbreads
    • $3 Domestic Beers
    • $4 Import Beer
    • $4 Wines
    • $5 Cocktails (single liquor/mixer)

Liam and I swung by the joint before the game for a little beverage and some apps, then after the game we enjoyed the 91st Minute for some delicious dinner, dessert, and drinks. All of the food, from the flatbread to the burgers and brownie sundae was really great and perfect for some game day love. The beers were also excellent, with some craft and local brews available to enjoy. And it you like wings, literally some of the best I’ve ever eaten. Great meal, perfect.

The Hard Rock is open year-round, even when there are no games being played, so the awesome deals keep coming even during the fall!! Maybe if you are in the Bronx to check out the Bronx Zoo, you can swing by Hard Rock and gobble up it’s newest Octoberfest burger and beer pairing? These seasonal menu items will be on tap at Hard Rock Cafe Yankee Stadium and Hard Rock Cafe New York beginning Monday, August 29 through Sunday, October 2, including:

  • Samuel Adams OctoberFest Schnitzel Burger – lightly breaded cutlets of tender pork schnitzel, layered with a Samuel Adams OctoberFest-infused beer cheese sauce, bacon and apple sauerkraut, Dijon mustard, lettuce and tomato, served on a pretzel bun; guests can pair their burger with a cold glass of Samuel Adams OctoberFest beer
  • Baked Soft Pretzels – served with sides of Samuel Adams OctoberFest-infused beer cheese sauce and mustard

Tasty Tuesday: Fiber One Cheesecake Bars Key Lime and Chocolate…Indulge Without All That Messy Guilt

Fiber One Cheesecake 8-16 2

Do you love cheesecake? Well, that’s a ridiculous question. Sorry about that. Back to the real world where it’s everyone’s favorite dessert like it is mine.

Cheesecake, the mere utterance of this heavenly dish is enough to make birds sing and children do their chores. Let’s be honest, though…eating cheesecake every day is probably not the best thing in the world for your gut or your cholesterol. So what is a fella to do when he’s looking for some rich creamy treatin’?

Fiber One CheesecakeBars fit the bill 100%. While they are all delicious and not going to cause you to not see your toes, the Key Lime and Chocolate bars are pretty much my top two flavors right now. Irresistible layers of graham cracker-y goodness, rich and creamy cheesecake, and rich chocolate or the tangy flavor of key lime? You bet. All of that deliciousness packing only 150 calories plus supplying you with 20% of your daily fiber? Most definitely.

These are just really good for those times when you need something sweet and delicious but don’t want to hurt the waistline any more than you already do. You know what I mean?
