Spreading the Love


Me again. I know I don’t usually post twice in one day, but I just have so much to say today!

I hate asking people to do things for me. I tend to feel like I’m being an inconvenience and generally avoid it at all costs. But this is super important to me so I’m going for it!

I’m in the running to become one of Love Grown Foods next LOVE bloggers! If selected, I would have tons of chances to share the LOVE with all of you!!! If you’re not familiar with Love Grown Foods, they are an amazing granola company and I suggest you run, don’t walk, to your nearest grocery store to pick some up. If you’re a long time reader, you may remember the LGF review I wrote back in April.

So, LGF selected 17 bloggers to make it to the second round, and now they’re letting the public decide who makes the final cut! The bloggers whose pictures get the most “likes” win! If you have just a second and want to help me out, just CLICK HERE and “like” my picture.

I’m in the second row, second from the left. I would GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!!! Thanks friends!

Although I’m not a fan of asking favors for myself, I have NO SHAME in asking for help for others.  I wanna tell you about some of my favorite bloggers that are also in the running and give you a few reasons why you should “like” their pictures too!

My Top 5 Potential LOVE BLOGGERS & 5 Reasons I love them:

1. Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably heard Miss Smart’s name mentioned because I’m pretty much obsessed with her. And here’s why.
-She sends me packages when she’s supposed to (like when she’s my foodie penpal) AND when she doesn’t have to (like this Random Snacks of Kindness box!)
-She is one of the most creative people I know in the kitchen. I mean, recently she made Squash-a-mole! Who thinks of stuff like that?!
-She recently went vegan for an entire month….just because it was on her bucket list!
-She posts every.single.day. and it’s amazing! It gives me something to look forward to every morning :)
-She’s bold, courageous, and not afraid to pick up everything and follow her dreams

2. Matt @ The Athlete’s Plate

-He’s one of the best examples of a healthy living blogger that I’ve ever seen. He eats healthy, he exercises and it’s clear that he’s truly made healthy living his lifestyle.
-He’s a guy. Who cooks. And if that’s not enough, he cooks delicious meals! Like Baked Salmon w/ Spinach & Feta. YUMM.
-Every week he features another blogger he loves on his blog (It was me last week!)
-He writes posts with awesome tips about things like Staying Healthy During the Holidays.
-He provides a great mix of posts about healthy food, healthy living & staying active.

-She recently got out of a long-term relationship but she’s not letting it put a damper on her spirit or impact her upbeat, positive attitude about life.
-When she sets a fitness goal, she stills to it. SO DEDICATED!
