Eating Right and Feeling Good in 2020

This post is sponsored by Perdue Farms but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.  Post may contain affiliate links.  

It’s a new year, so it’s time to up your game and make the upcoming year bigger and better than last year in any and all ways possible. One of the main things I’m looking for is more organic food, like organic chicken, and generally more natural food. 2020 is a year to eat right and to feel good in what you are eating. I am a huge fan of food. Food in general and food of all kinds. From chicken parmigiana to burgers to pizza, I’m an any-and-all-of-the-above kind of person. One thing I generally do insist on is that the food is of high quality, preferably coming from a company that I trust and admire. I like knowing where the food is coming from and how good a product it is, but I also like to know that that company making it is also something I know and support. I also love companies that innovate with new and different products and services offered. This is where Perdue Farms comes in.

Perdue Farms Natural Food

Perdue Farms is a brand that I know and trust since I was a kid. This is an amazing family owned-and operated brand with products that my family and I have enjoyed for decades. In fact, for 100 years, the company has worked with small family farmers to raise animals with care. I was lucky enough to meet these farmers and hear how much they loved working with Perdue over the years. It was awesome to see them work and even better knowing how good a company Perdue is. It made me feel great about all those purchases my family has made over all the years. You can really tell Perdue Farms is passionate about farming, land preservation and healthy and nutritious food.

Family Bundles

This is a great bundle for me because I love the pork and I’m a huge fan of Niman Ranch and it’s natural food products. Any time of the day is a good time for pork, and this bundle proves that, baby.

Breakfast starts with Niman Ranch’s all-time favorite: center-cut uncured bacon, which is slow smoked over applewood, and breakfast sausage, which can also be used to flavor savory sauces, soups and stews. The kids go mad for Perdue’s dino nuggets, chicken breast strips and chicken breast tenderloins, which cook up in minutes for all of those hungry mouths you are looking to feed.  The cherry on the cake has to be Niman Ranch’s succulent bacon-wrapped pork chop and Perdue’s whole chicken – perfect for weeknight meals or a more formal Sunday sit-down dinner. These are some awesome products that are just never a bad idea. Ever.

Consider all of your dinners planned for the week. Perdue Farms has everything you need to get through the week. Place your order today and get this pack delivered straight to your doorstep!

Gathering Bundles

For occasions when friends and family swing by with little notice, think about stocking your freezer with Perdue Farms’ most popular heat-and-serve items. I’m talking about awesome stuff with little prep work, including Niman Ranch’s Memphis-style pulled pork and amber ale-infused ribs!! Sick. How about Perdue’s herbed olive oil-tossed chicken wings and breaded organic chicken breast tenders?? These are so good and ready to heat and eat. Bing, bang, party. It’s just that easy, man.

In the event that you are a planner and you have more responsible, less spontaneous friends and family members, you can do some big-time work with a Sonoma Red pasture-raised certified organic whole chicken, which is air chilled to lock in flavor, and Niman Ranch’s heritage pork kielbasa, made with ground pork and a special blend of spices and slow smoked over applewood. Did I just say pork kielbasa? Why yes, yes I did.

Need a solution for a quick impromptu gathering or a formal sit-down feast? This collection has everything to keep your freezer packed with party foods that are perfect for any entertaining occasion! Order on Perdue Farms today.

Perdue Farms Sustainability

Perdue Farms has been all about the environment and sustainability before it became a part of mainstream culture. From family farmers to zero antibiotics to free range care, Perdue Farms is all about being thoughtful stewards of the environment. It’s one of their most important social pillars. It’s some of the many ways they create the amazing natural food and organic food we know and love today!

They are taking some pretty extraordinary steps to protect our ecosystem, especially in consideration of this new e-commerce initiative:

  • For every order shipped, Perdue Farms will donate to the Arbor Day Foundation, whose mission is to replant and revitalize damaged areas of our nation’s forests. This donation helps reduce the carbon footprint required to ship our products to you.
  • Shipping boxes designed with sustainability in mind. Every box is made out of 100 percent recyclable cardboard and insulated with Green Cell Foam®. Green Cell Foam®’s eco-friendly insulation is biodegradable, compostable and made from high-grade non-GMO cornstarch that is also dissolvable in water. 
  • You’ll receive a reusable and recyclable grocery bag with your purchase. Use it the next time you go to the store to avoid using paper or plastic.
  • A pollinator seed packet is also included in every box. Our nation wouldn’t be able to produce the food we do without the bees and butterflies, who help to make one out of every three bites of food we eat. Plant the seeds to create a robust pollinator habitat near your home!

This is all very thoughtful and very impressive. The company really is trying to do it’s best for our environment and I really applaud the effort. If you want to learn more, be sure to check out perduefarms.com/wecare.

Enjoy The Pool This Summer And Get Outdoors With New CAPRI SUN Organic


This is a sponsored post with CafeMom and CAPRI SUN. All opinions expressed are my own.
CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 3

It’s the dog days of summer. It’s 100 degrees in the shade and the air conditioning, pools and beaches are rocking. It’s the best time of the year if you’re a kid (and just love life) in so many ways!! Are you out and about? Are your kids being kids and playing outside?

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 5

One of our favorite summer activities is hitting our awesome town pool. Seriously, it’s like a resort. Even better! A waterpark for kids, 2 pools, a water slide, mini-golf, 2 playgrounds, movies on the lawn, music, and more. It’s awesome and we can’t get enough. It’s just a go-to spot where we don’t even have to plan to meet people there…there’s just always a ton of people ready to hang out and have fun! It’s really one of the best perks of living where we live and we are so thankful every summer to have it!

Capri Sun Pool Bag
The pool is great. They can swim, dance, play, run, and do all the things that kids should be doing during the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer! One thing is for certain, the kids will have a blast and never want to leave. Another thing is certain, we will pack a bag that’s stocked up for the day. Sunblock, towels, clothes, snacks, cash, and CAPRI SUN Organic is always there and ready for action.

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 9

The kids (and the parents) really just love the convenience of the CAPRI SUN pouches and the all-new, awesome ingredient-laden Organic juices are perfect for the Sweeneys trying to live a much healthier and happier 2016!

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 6

The Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape flavors of CAPRI SUN Organic are the perfect drink. From the ease of the pouches to the Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice, all three of the kids just can’t get enough of it! Oh yeah…the New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain any High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or added sugar!!!

CAPRI SUN Outdoors Pool 4

It’s not an easy thing to find something the entire family agrees on!

I’m also loving the message that CAPRI SUN is spreading! Get out and about! Don’t schedule everything in the kids’ lives! Let them get dirty, improvise, and just be kids. That’s what it means to be a kid. Don’t take it all away with too much “adult-style” scheduling. Let them be bored, let them think up games to play, let them just go. It won’t turn out badly…it didn’t for you did it?

To give you even more of a taste for what the new CAPRI SUN Organic is all about, check out the CAPRI SUN Let Em Go video here to get you even more in the mood for springtime fun!!!

Well? Pretty sweet, right? I love this campaign. I really am all about it. I’m about the message and I’m about the new ingredients in these juices. It’s just what the doctor ordered for me this year and in the years to come. Get out and enjoy! Maybe you’ll feel more like a kid, too, and there’s no downside to that.

Fuel Your Kids’ Outside Adventures with New CAPRI SUN Organic


Capri Sun Organic

The weather outside has been absolutely amazing in New York this spring. It’s been 65, sunny, and perfect pretty much every day. The grass is getting greener and the leaves are coming in. Even more fun…the kids are out and about all the time. From soccer to lacrosse to just hanging out with their friends, the kids are really soaking up all the good times and fine weather. It’s been perfect.

Capri Sun Organic

My parents live in a house with a lot of hills and an acre of land. It’s perfect for the kids. Some of the property is even wooded so they really think they are in a faraway land.

Capri Sun Organic

While the kids are very content with just running around like crazy people, here are 6 games they love to play when they are “away” in Grandma-and-Grandpa Land.

  • Hide and Seek – think lots of trees, bushes, and nook and crannies. There are a lot of games to play, but this is probably the top.
  • Tag – an acre of land offers a lot of room to run, and that’s just what they do. Plenty of space, plenty of laughs.
  • Soccer – It’s another great open space game, and you don’t need much. Just bring along your ball and have at it!
  • Hill Rolling – The area is hilly, but the front of the house is really hilly. The kids love to just roll down over and over again. So does dad…
  • Swimming – Yes, there is a pool and they love it. It’s a fantastic activity and loads of fun in just about every way. It’s really nice. I didn’t have a pool growing up, so it’s nice that my kids get the chance to enjoy it themselves.
  • Just Plain Running – Yep, that’s it. Just running. Running up the hill and down. Running through the trees and onto the driveway. It’s fun and it can go on for a long time. The best is the final high-speed run right into the front door. Easy…good by me.

Capri Sun Organic

When your kids are out, playing games, and creating adventures, it’s important for them to hydrate throughout. When they look for a drink, it’s always important to get something that won’t slow them down. Something that’s made with good stuff. Something that they love to drink.

Capri Sun Organic

The Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape flavors of CAPRI SUN Organic are the perfect drink. From the ease of the pouches to the Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice, all three of the kids just can’t get enough of it! Oh yeah…the New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain any High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS), artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or added sugar!!!

That’s a lot of no’s right there…thankfully…and how can’t you get behind that!

Capri Sun Organic

It’s Spring! Let Em Go The Right Way With New CAPRI SUN Organic


Capri Sun Liam Soccer Collage

The weather is really nice right now in New York. It’s springtime baby and the kids are always looking to be out and about. It’s time for bike rides and scooter fun, walks to the park and playing “monster” at the playground. It’s time for soccer, baseball, and lacrosse. It’s time to remember you are alive and well and the kids are there to have fun. Shaking the winter blues off is a must at this time of year.

Running, jumping, and playing is something even us adults need to do much more of. As you may know, I’ve been on a bit of a health kick in 2016. I am trying to get back into shape, and so is Vera. In fact, the whole family is exercising more and eating better. I am also very aware that we all need to hydrate as much as we can, especially when exercise and activity in the warm weather is going on.

Capri Sun Liam Yellow Ball Collage

An easy way for the kids (who am I kidding…for me, too) to keep hydrated in a way that’s as organic as their play is with New CAPRI SUN Organic. Capri Sun has been making some amazing changes and it continues with this wholesome, Certified USDA Organic juice drink made of 66% juice. That’s equal to 1 serving of fruit*, people. Organic ingredients that the kids absolutely love? Sign me up.

You want to know something else? Sure you do. It’s also good to learn something new. Good for the soul. How about I let you in on all of the things the New CAPRI SUN Organic DOESN’T have?!

Capri Sun Liam Caleb Table Collage

Oh yeah, baby….get this. The New CAPRI SUN Organic does NOT contain:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
  • Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives
  • Added Sugar

How can you beat that? I’m not really very sure you can. It seems that while your kid is outside working hard to improve his or her soccer game (Messi anyone?), Capri Sun is doing the same with all of their awesome drinks. You know and I know that it’s awesome…and so do the kids. There are not too many things where I agree completely with the kids, I have to admit that. The kids love the taste, be it Fruit Punch, Apple, Tropical Punch, or Grape, and they love to slurp and smash that great pouch. It’s also the perfect drink when they are on the go.

Capri Sun Organic GAB 9

These drinks are completely rocking with great flavors and none of the nasty stuff you just don’t want your kids to have. It’s perfect for all that spring craziness has in store for us. It’s time to shake off those winter blues and get moving again. While they’re at it, let them soak in 100% recommended Daily Value Vitamin C, because that’s what they are getting in each pouch. Dope. Let em go and enjoy every minute!!

Check out the CAPRI SUN Let Em Go video here to get you even more in the mood for springtime fun!!!

*Each pouch provides 1/2 cup fruit juice which is one serving of fruit according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.
