Mango Strawberry SPARKee (icee)

What's the best energy drink of all time? SPARK! I used to be a coffee fiend... and to be fair, I still love coffee and the flavor, but I don't need it to function any more! That said, this girl still loves a good old pumpkin spice latte! MMMM YUM!

Spark is awesome because I don't crash around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and it comes in super awesome flavors. Super awesome... like what? Super awesome like Mango Strawberry and Pink Lemonade. I've used it in smoothies and sprinkled on frozen grapes. YUM. Who would have thought that frozen grapes could be such an amazing treat? Not this girl.

I've been playing around with a variety of drinks, and I've come up with one that's so simple, yet so delicious -- a healthy version of an Icee or Slurpee... a SPARKee! Now all I need is a blender that can actually crush ice. If I put anything with a tougher consistency than a tomato in my blender, it whines and cries and half-heartedly shuffles the ice cubes around. I may go shopping soon!

Mango Strawberry SPARKee!
1 scoop/packet of Mango Strawberry SPARK
4 oz water
1 1/2 cups ice cubes
Optional: 1/2 cup fresh/frozen strawberries.

Whisk together Spark and water until well blended. Add with ice and fruit into blender and process until you achieve the consistency you're looking for.

Pour into glass and slurp away.

Note: I am an independent distributor for AdvoCare, but share this recipe because it's simply supa dupa awesome. This  wasn't intended to be a product review, just a recipe... and it's oh! so good. :)

Basil Dijon Egg Salad: Recipes on a Budget

I just love hard boiled eggs! LOVE them.

I'm always looking for great recipes using them. When you dice them up and add a few things, it makes them seem much more substantial.

Have you come across this product? Kraft Sandwich Shop Horseradish-Dijon Mayo. We first found it when we were buying sandwich materials to take picnicking. It's particularly fantastic when you have limited space, and great on sandwiches, as a dipping sauce, etc. It's companion piece -a Chipotle Mayo is great dipper for quesadillas. YUM

Back to my hard boiled eggs. I was looking for some tastyness while making a meal for one (1)... which means you can't add a whole lot of ingredients. This egg salad resulted, mostly because this may is PERFECT for a great egg salad. It resulted in part also because I  have a fabulous basil plant that stares at me all day and begs to be eaten.

It really does "Erin, Erin..." I hear the little voice.
Ok. Maybe not.
But I did need to eat some basil!

Egg salad is a great way to enjoy hard boiled eggs, get a good dose of protein with relatively low fat and low calories. I started making this recipe a lot when I first started using Advocare's products. It's a FANTASTIC recipe... and I hope you enjoy!

Basil Dijon Egg Salad

1 hard boiled egg, diced
1 tbsp Kraft Sandwich Shop Horseradish-Dijon Mayo
4 leaves fresh basil, chopped
1/2 stalk celery, diced
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Voila. Lunch!
A great mixture of soft and crunch with some great flavor.

Note: Kraft didn't provide me with any product and this post is in no way sponsored by them. My opinions (and poor photography) are my own.
