Wal-Mart Foundation's Fighting Hunger Together

This post brought to you by The Walmart Foundation. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know over 50 million Americans have no idea where their next meal will come from?  Or that Springtime generally produces a decrease in food and charitable donations to food banks across the country.

I had no idea.  And one of the main causes is unemployment.

Knowing this, makes me realize just how much I take food and the meals I get to enjoy and feed my family for granted.

To help bridge this Spring hunger gap, Wal-Mart is working with Feeding America and four of the country's most recognizable food brands- ConAgra,General Mills, Kraft, and Kellog's in a Nationwide Fighting Hunger Together Initiative.

Starting Monday, April 9th through April 30th Wal-Mart will be hosting a facebook campaign where fans can rally support for communities in need of hunger relief.  You can vote among 200 communities with the highest unemployment rate as determined by the Department of Labor.  Wal-mart will donate $2 million dollars to the 21 communities receiving the most support--$1 million to the winner, and $20 million to the 20  runner-ups.

Wal-Mart is giving US the opportunity to help!  Vote to fight spring hunger with Walmart.  I will be voting for a community here in my home state, St. George, Utah.  You can also go in-stores between April 9th-30th and participate by purchasing products from ConAgra, General Mills, Kraft and Kellogg's, or donate meals to Feeding America  and Action for Healthy Kids--both nonprofits fighting childhood hunger.  

This is such simple way for us to make a big impact, so be sure to vote and spread the word!

Slim-Fast's New Best Tasting Shakes Ever..

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast. All opinions are 100% mine.

I live a pretty active lifestyle and love to exercise, and despite what you see on this blog sometimes, we do eat pretty healthy around here.  So for me, I'm usually just trying to maintain my weight.    Since I'm pregnant right now I'm definitely not trying to lose weight but instead just trying to make sure I gain a healthy weight throughout the pregnancy.

However, over the past few years there have been times when I've gained a little weight and had a good 5-10 pounds I've wanted to lose.  Haven't we all been there?  Especially after the Holidays?  That's usually when I do all of my damage:)

If you are trying to lose weight or even just trying to maintain your weight this year, Slim-Fast new shakes and 3-2-1 plan can help!  You can reach and maintain your goals without sacrificing taste too.  I've used Slim-Fast shakes before and love the taste of the chocolate ones! But the new Slim-Fast shakes are even better.

They will wow your taste buds, provide up to four hours of hunger control and offer 10 grams of protein, five grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals, making it easier for you to stick to your plan and achieve your goals.

Their shakes now come in a convenient little bottle that’s designed to go everywhere – from your purse to your desk or gym bag. I'm not a big breakfast girl and am usually drinking a shake on my way to the gym in the morning, so I love the convenience of these!

Flavors available in the new bottle include:
• Creamy Milk Chocolate
• French Vanilla
• Rich Chocolate Royale
• Cappuccino Delight
• Strawberries N’ Cream

If you are really looking to shed some weight the 3-2-1 Slim-Fast Plan might be just what your looking for.  What's great about the plan is it’s flexibility-- you can get the structure you want and the variety you crave.

And the 3-2-1 Plan is simple:
• 3 Snacks: Three nourishing snacks a day such as Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars, fruit, nuts or veggies between meals
• 2 Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day: Slim-Fast shakes and meal bars are delicious and satisfying, providing the balanced nutrition of a meal and up to four hours of hunger control
• 1 Balanced Meal: Enjoy one balanced 500-calorie meal per day. As a rule, try to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and a quarter with whole grains

If you are interested the new Slim-Fast shakes are available in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger and online at and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook.(You can like Slim-Fast on Facebook too!)

Do you think the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan can help you with your weight loss/management goals this year?  (Maybe if I quit posting so many sweets?)

Which of their products are you most excited to try?

Although I've never tried the 3-2-1 Plan, I have used the shakes to help maintain my weight-- drinking them for breakfast and/or for an afternoon snack. So I am most excited to try the new Shakes in their new bottles! They'll be the perfect grab-n-go on my way out the door in the mornings!
