One Heck of An Awesome & Healthy Summer Already!

20140625-134406-49446739.jpgAdvoCare announced that it is launching a NEW product every pay period (2-3 weeks) this Summer in its “Launchapalooza” campaign! So far, the first three products released are AMAZING!

The first product that AdvoCare launched during the “Launchapalooza” is Pomegranate Slam!

20140625-134744-49664664.jpg I was already in love with the other flavors, but this one takes the cake! I don’t know if I can ever go back to my Bowl Game Berry after tasting this one! The AMAZINGNESS of Pomegranate Slam led me to refreshing our microsite every 10 seconds to catch the next product launched before they sellout.

As if Pomegranate Slam wasn’t enough of a huge success, AdvoCare released their second “Launchapalooza” product… GREEN APPLE SPARK, which is by far my new favorite product!!!

20140625-140030-50430020.jpgNot only have produced the best flavor yet, which tastes just like a Jolly Rancher to me, they made it in an easy to use “On The Go” pack very similar to Oasis and BioCharge. Mariah and I were just discussing how awesome it would be if AdvoCare made Spark in the same type of packaging as Oasis and BooCharge and then voilà!!! They did just that!

Today they just made us even happier by launching Mango PASSIONFRUIT Slam! Based on the home runs AdvoCare has been hitting with the first two products in the “Launchapalooza,” we cannot wait for this one to get to the door! We already ordered several boxes! More products to come meaning more excitement!!!

Clean Eating Means Clean Shopping


When you have a Paleo wife, ya gotta shop pretty clean… AND in bulk. We just made our monthly Costco mega-grocery trip (we go to Costco way more than once a month, but only do the mega-grocery trip about once).

CHICKEN – $2.99 l/b (12 big boneless chicken breasts sealed in individually wrapped freezer safe bags) = $20.96

The best part of the chicken is that there are NO artificial ingredients and NO hormones.

SALMON… DELICIOUS (I’ll make sure Mariah posts the recipe we use on The farm raised Atlantic Salmon comes in 7 individually wrapped packages (3 lbs. for $25.89).

BISON MEAT – If you haven’t had this then you’re missing out! Bison is leaner than just about any other meat you can find. Check it out for yourself:


ALMOND BUTTER – At $0.396/oz., it’s the cheapest I’ve seen anywhere including online for a 26 oz. jar. By the way… the Paleo Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Balls we make are AMAZING and I highly suggest trying them out.

If you want to eat clean you have to shop clean. Don’t bring the garbage in your house and you can’t put it in your body.


Baked Coconut Chicken Nuggets

This was an amazing dish! I’d add it to the regular menu.

The Rutter Life

One thing that I have really come to appreciate as I’ve matured into my mid-twenties is discovering my passions. Some have been slower to develop than others, but one passion that just feeds my soul is cooking. (Try telling me I’m not your punniest friend) It wasn’t until I moved to Baton Rouge that I really began to experiment with cooking and fell in love. Don’t get me wrong, Louisiana has some of the BEST food you’ll find in the U.S. of A., but when it comes to healthy eats it doesn’t quite take first place. As I became more aware of what I was putting into my body I realized I had the most control over my health in the kitchen. And so, I began to cook. I definitely have a long way to go, but I’ve been testing out my skills cooking for James (Shoutout to the
