Nutrisystem D Nation Blogger Program I Received My First Order Today #NSNation Diabetic Snacker





Nutrisystem D Nation Blogging Program 1st
Official Post, My Box Came Today!


As I've said for the last month or so, today is the start of a new makeover plan for me! This is the official first post for my new Nutrisystem D especially geared for type 2 diabetics. I'm so excited to be a part of this new adventure and I hope you will come here every week and share in my triumphs! I'm planning on having a lot of success with this blog program from Nutrisystem.
Nutrisyste D
Nutrisystem Follow Along

I've decided what I will do is start a new Nutrisystem weight loss blog post each week and leave it in draft and add to it all during the week as I try all the new breakfasts, lunch, dinner and dessert treats that Nutrisystem has so graciously provided for me!

Then at the end of the week all of my meals, likes and dislikes will be on the post already. I thought about posting on a daily basis but I decided it would get to be too much for all of you to keep up with. I know how busy all of you moms and dads are.
So a weekly Nutrisystem post I don't want to lose any of my loyal subscribers. Hopefully, I can add a few new friends and subscribers along the way to my new healthy eating meal plan.

My box from Nutrisystem arrived today ups ground shipment
and boy was it huge! It said it weighed 38 pounds! I'm glad
my regular ups guy was on duty because he carried it inside for
me. I tore in to the box quickly it was like unwrapping
your favorite Christmas present! The anticipation was killing
me to see what the foods actually looked like.

Well I must say they look very inviting! My son helped
me remove all of the meals and snacks from the box and
we placed them on the huge shelf in the pantry I had
cleared away for them. It took up every inch of it too.
My son said wow that is a lot of food for 5 months! You
should have seen the look on his face when I told him
that was for 28 days!

It's like having my own private specialty grocery store
right in my kitchen. I kept everything sorted like they
had it so cleverly laid out in the box. It all was seperated
and categorized like this;

breakfasts
lunch
dinner
desserts

It was so much fun putting all the goodies onto the shelves
I'm so glad I get to do that every month for awhile. I
think my kids enjoyed it too, they kept finding items
that they thought looked good to them! They both said
the chocolate cakes and the beef and pasta's looked
like real food that even they would eat. I don't know
what they thought I was going to get but it must have
some soy or tofu in it somewhere because they seemed
shocked at every package! So far, I only had one minor bump
in the road for me, I didn't know that there would be no
whole wheat bread involved. I thought sure for my beef patty
I'd get to have my usual whole wheat bun but according
to the sample meal plan the buns and breads are out! That
set me back for a few minutes but I emailed my spokesperson
and she explained it all to me nicely. She said I'll be getting
plenty of my carbs in my actual entres,fruits and vegetables.
I was worried about that because I have trouble maintaining
focus because of my diabetes a lot. So I am sure going to
miss my breads and buns but hopefully it will be for the
better.

Since this arrived late today I'm going to take tonight and
tuesday to read over all my paperwork and booklets and
go shopping for my add in groceries tuesday. That way the
plan is starting fresh wednesday morning November 3rd!

In another bloggy note;
Today this blog hit a big mark -400- google friends connect
followers yay yay!! I am so thrilled with that and I thank each of you ALL! Wow this is an exciting time around here today!

Plus today is the start of National Diabetes Month so there's going to be a lot of new things on the horizon. I'll fill you in on these Nutrisystem meal plans as soon as I get started Wednesday!

Hoover FloorMate Friends & Family Home Party Cleaning Challenge Clean Up Diabetic Snacker




My Kitchen Clean Up Hoover FloorMate
Challenge Party


~~~~LET THE CHALLENGE BEGIN~~GET READY TO R-U-M-B-L-E~~~~~~~~

Wow! I know there have been a few times on my blog
that I have talked poorly about a company or a pr rep
working with a company, but let me tell you-Hoover has
outdone themselves by going all out & more for bloggers
everywhere.
Hoover FloorMate Cleaning System
Hoover FloorMate Challenge Details


If you recall I received a brand spanking
new Hoover FloorMate a few months ago and we've been using
it to clean our kitchen floors and pantry area ever since
and loving it.


Well now-I have been given the opportunity to host a
P-A-R-T-Y around the Hoover FloorMate. It's called
The Hoover FloorMate Challenge and it sounds like a lot
of fun even if we will be doing some cleaning.

I've invited 5 friends over and have
a live challenge on my kitchen floor. Sounds like fun,
right? Hey, they are friends so they've all seen my
floors dirty before anyway so this didn't bother me
a bit.

I made small piles about using the dirt & various
stuff that built up on my kitchen,pantry and bathroom
floor for a whole week. Yea all that crap is just from
one week of not sweeping the floors-holy cow! We sure
are messy around here. Maybe it's because we do a lot
of cooking and deep frying I don't know. Anyway, it
wasn't hard to come up with 6 piles from all of this crap.

I usually like to sweep my kitchen floor every 2 days so
it doesn't get all tracked in to the family room carpet
off the kitchen. So this was really hard letting the dirt
and grime pile up for a week.
I have 5 friends over here for my Hoover floor party
challenge and each person got to choose how they wanted to
clean up their own little pile of stuff using their favorite
cleaning method. Then after each one did
the best cleaning job that they could possibly do; then
is when the Hoover FloorMate came into play.

We emptied out the floormates dirty cavity each time (6 times)
so we could start with a fresh clean tank and see if anything
else could be picked up on already scrubbed spotless
surface. We had to make it fair you know! So, the picture
you see of the dirty tank is what the Hoover Floormate
picked up after one of the redo's! Isn't that gross!?

OMG! You'd be amazed at how much stuff still came up! I don't know
where it even came from as it was not evident to the naked
eye. I know I have low vision but I'm talking about my friends
in attendance who swore that nothing would come up off
their spots
when they were done. They all ate their words as stuff
just kept coming up each and every time on all SIX of the
spots! Boy, did I ever feel SMART! Since I'm the only
proud one that owns this Hoover innovation right now I
felt like a genius.

They couldn't believe it and they all said they are getting
one of these Hoover FloorMates of their own. Why scrub
a floor if you don't have too? At least 3 of them said
they are telling their husbands that they want if for
their big Christmas Gift!

Here's the cleaning methods we used before the floormate:

1.wet sponges
2.paper towels
3.broom & mop
4.dust mop
5.wet kitchen rags & then dry rags

Each of the above methods were used on at least one of each
of the five dirty spots and we all 6 have agreed there's
no need to have ANY of these in your kitchen if you have
this wonderful machine around;

1.broom & dustpan
2.rag mop
3.sponge mop
4.kitchen rags for cleaning
5.grimy germ laden sponges
for scrubbing floors

So actually the paper towels were the only product we decided
would still be needed in the kitchen but not for the floors!
Think of the money you could save by using this cleaning system
from Hoover.

Better yet-I think this would be the PERFECT wedding/bridal
shower gift for a new couple. They wouldn't even have to
purchase a broom,mop,sponges,buckets,rags,.... It's a great
innovative gift idea and it's what I'm definitely giving
out to newlyweds from now on! Ooh, housewarming gifts too
this would rock for that!

I like to call my Hoover Floormate Hard Surface Cleaner
my Devil Remover because it gets up E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!
I mean things you can't even see! It goes after embedded dirt
and grease and much too. It works like the devil in mysterious
ways!

Easy & Convenient Storage
Dual-Tank Technology
Soft-Tread Wheels
Patented Spin Scrub Technology
Vacuum Power & Squugee Action

That's the features how they are listed on their website,
but I'm here to vouch that all of the above statements
are true. It is the most powerful remarkable cleaner upper
on the market today and if you don't have it you are
really missing out on something good.

Disclosure: I received a gift card in order
to participate in a challenge party and buy the
refreshments needed
to throw my hoover floormate challenge
party for my friends.
Thanks to Hoover FloorMate for
providing me the gift card,cleaning products & this
great opportunity. My opinions are my own and Hoover
also provided me with the actual Hoover FloorMate a few months ago
which I disclosed in a review post then. Thanks Hoover for
being such a wonderful company!

#CLOSED Diabetic Snacker CSN Stores 10/31/10 $40.00 Gift Card Giveaway Kitchen Hand Towels to Contemporary Coffee Tables CSN Has It All









Product Review CSN Stores & Giveaway
$40.00 Gift Card From Kitchen Hand Towels
to Contemporary Coffee Tables CSN Has It All!
Ends 10/31/10 US

I've been doing a lot of internet window shopping lately
and discovered that CSN Stores also has a store with
beautiful coffee tables too, something for everyone's
taste. contemporary coffee tables They have hundreds of styles and designs to choose from too. I noticed while I was looking around between all of their sites, that they carry a lot of cute Nesting Tables too. I may have to
get a set of those down the road as my wood coffee table
is showing scratch marks badly now since it's 10 years old.

Upstairs in our game room we have those hot new trendy
black glass coffee tables but here in the family room,I prefer
wood. I love the feel of an all wood piece of furniture
and I think there is something inviting and cozy about it.

CSN Stores offers such a wide selection of merchandise in
their 200 different stores you'll be ready to
redecorate your entire house from their online store. So
if you're on the market for a new coffee table I'd look
there first.
I love that they offer tons of colors and new trendy
styles in all of their products.

They have such a broad array, that they have over
1 million products you can buy. You could spend
days shopping on their site and get all your holiday
shopping done. Whether you need new tools
for your kitchen, a birthday gift, or just
a little something for yourself-they've got
you covered.
CSN Stores

My review is for their colorful
kitchen hand towels. My kitchen towels have seen
better days so I thought that would be a great
product to review for you. Everyone needs kitchen
towels because it's something you depend on
every single day.

I go thru a ton of kitchen hand towels every day as I'm trying
to use less paper towels and be eco friendly. I received 2
of their blue striped hand towels and I've been using them
for the last couple of days. They are very absorbent quickly
getting up any spills I've made. They are made of cotton
but they are super thick. I also like the way they feel they
are very soft to the touch. I wish they had this pattern
in a dinner napkin too as it coordinates with a lot of
my fiesta dinnerware pieces.

The hand towels came packaged in clear cellophane protective
wrapping so they'd be perfect for gift giving just like
that. I often give kitchen hand towels as a hostess gift
or a housewarming gift. Kitchen hand towels also make nice
package tie on gifts for everyone but especially cooks
in the family. These have the feel of velvet but they
are easy to care for machine wash in cold water. I wish
I had a dozen of them so I could throw out my old kitchen
towels! I also noticed they carry bath towels so I'm going
to be checking into restocking all of my current bath towels
which are getting ragged around the edges and faded.

Disclosure: I was sent complimentary products to write this
review about. No other form of compensation was given and my
opinions are my own. Thank you CSN Stores for sending
me the products mentioned.

Have you shopped at CSN Stores before? If not what are
you waiting for?

#CLOSED 10/31/10 Diabetic Snacker Giveaway NuNaturals Alternative Sweeteners Products *3* Winners!






Giveaway NuNaturals Alternative Sweeteners
Great For Diabetics & Everyone Sugar Free Baking Too
Giveaway US Entries

This giveaway Ends 10/31/10

A great company that makes alternative sweeteners called
NuNaturals is back and they want me to offer 3 winners some
of their great products! It seems I was supposed to offer
4 winners earlier in another giveaway but because of my oversight
I only offered one winner. So, my apologies to the company
and this giveaway is for 3 lucky readers of diabetic snacker's
food blog.
NuNaturals Sweeteners

are Awesome!



I previously wrote a full review for NuNaturals products and now here's another wonderful giveaway from them for you! I've been using
the time out of my kit I had already received. There is
no aftertaste associated with these products which I really
like. I hate aftertaste in baking products. I do a lot of
sugar free baking so it's nice to have an alternative sweetener
on hand for all my baking needs.

I know some of you are not diabetic but don't let that stop you
from trying these new remarkable products on the marketplace
today. They make your products taste just as sweet as they
should with sugar but there is no calories involved. How cool is
that? I love no calories so even if you don't have to worry
about blood sugar spikes try NuNaturals you'll love it.

NuNaturals makes many products that cater to controling
your blood sugar levels. That's so important to type 2
diabetics like myself. Actually even people who are not
diabetic should start being more in control of their sugar

intake.

Some of the products they have are:

pure liquid cinnamon
levelright capsules to help burn glucose more efficently
baking blends containing more fiber
alcohol free vanilla stevia extract
white stevia individual packets
and many more products!

They are also providing you with a 15% discount code thru
November 30,2010! Just use the code BLG1130 when you check out!
How great is that?
NuNaturals Sweeteners


They also offer free shipping on continental US orders over $35.00
now that's saving a ton of money! They have a very nice
recipe collection where you can find all the baking ideas
you'd ever need;
NuNaturals Recipes Galore

NuNaturals.com (3 winners will receive this kit)!

one box NuNaturals White Stevia Powder
50 ct. packets NuNaturals
PLUS(1) bottle Vanilla Stevia Liquid 2 oz.

Wow! Thanks NuNaturals for being so generous!

Good news! NuNaturals also ships their items
Internationally, you can find the details here:
https://nunaturals.com/page/234

only,sorry.


Disclosure: I was sent a 4pack of my own just like the winners will receive awhile back in order to write the previous review. I was not compensated in any way for this giveaway post. My opinions are my own. This post is for my readers so thanks NuNaturals for providing 3 prize packs for my winners.
