Thank you for reading! Whether it’s your first time to this blog, or you’ve read each post (probably only my Mom), I’m appreciative you made it. “Madeline Moves” is about three months old and I’m not bored or out of ideas yet and that’s worthy of celebrating!
You’ve given of your time to hop on over here and read about nutrition, fitness, and travel and I’d like to give BACK.
It’s easy to consume, take, read, watch, but I’m challenging you to also give, create and share something today. Could be a note, text, snack, compliment--you get the idea. GIVE something today.
I’ll go first--A GIVEAWAY!
(Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides & 3 Boxes Enlightened Marshmallow Treats)
Vital Proteins has taken the collagen game to a new level and it’s easy to understand why. I’ve mentioned their products in a few posts, but I’ll share this one because it includes pancakes. Here are the top three benefits I’ve personally experienced as a result of adding collagen to my diet.
Improved Skin- I don’t genetically have the best skin, but I am determined to take care of it! That includes SPF, exfoliating, moisturizing, etc…..but collagen helps from the inside out. It repairs cells and I have seen an overall improvement in the texture and clarity of my skin since Vital Proteins.
- Recovery- Whether it’s running, soccer, lifting weights or hiking, I put a lot of “stress” on my body’s muscles and joints. I’ve noticed that areas don’t stay sore as long or ache nearly as much in the months I’ve been using collagen (and that’s saying a lot!)
- Tasteless Protein- Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides is animal-based (beef actually), so it has protein, but NO taste. It’s hard to add vanilla protein to a savory omelet or put it in your coffee, but this dissolves into anything. I bake with it, add it to smoothies, coffee, yogurt and it’s a punch of protein without even thinking .
The second part of this giveaway is three boxes of Enlightened Marshmallow Treats!
This company holds a special place in my heart and here’s why:
Last Thanksgiving Day, I ran a half-marathon in my hometown (Atlanta) and was able to set a new personal record! It was a wonderful day not only because of the race, but all the delicious food and family time that was going to follow (best holiday). What put the day over the top, is the Sprouts grocery store near my parent’s house that has ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream. The dessert I wanted most post race on Thanksgiving (not a big fan of pumpkin pie) was a pint of Caramel Cookie Crunch all to myself! (No grocery stores carried Enlightened in Greenville at the time)
What sets this company apart is that I emailed them and told them about my race and post-race deliciousness and how I would LOVE for their products to be available in Greenville. Within three days, they responded with a cooler FULL of all their flavors on my doorstep thanking me for my loyalty to the brand! I was in heaven and forever a loyal customer.
