October is quickly slipping away and turning into November… cue the tears (and cold weather). October is my favorite month for a number of reasons. Living in Connecticut, it brings the most perfect weather, with absolutely beautiful fall foliage. It also happens to be my mom, brother, and my own birthday month (Yay for celebrating!)
You may have noticed that I’ve started to stray away from my weekly ‘Friday Five’ posts, and instead I’m going to be switching over to monthly ‘favorites’ posts. As we say goodbye to October, here are my favorite products, recipes, and posts from the past month 🙂
Obviously my favorite thing that we did this month was visit Italy… I haven’t had a chance to go through all of my photos (I took over 1,000!), but I will be sure to share them as soon as I do. In the meantime you can drool over this Caprese pizza and dark chocolate /coffee gelato. Two of the best things we ate during our trip!!
Stuffum Natural‘s created a White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice flavor of their Protein Cookie Dough Spread. It’s UNBELIEVEABLE. Like out of this world-eat it straight out of the jar- can’t control yourself- good. You need to get your hands on it. You can use our ambassador coupon code ‘cleaneating15’ for 15% off any of their products. If you want the pumpkin flavor I’d order it ASAP – its only available for a limited time. Then they’re coming out with a super delicious winter flavor.. which I know.. but I can’t share the secret just yet!
Speaking of pumpkin spice.. I’m also a big fan of My Favorite Indulgence’s Pumpkin Spiced Granola. This granola is made in small batches, its non-GMO and vegan, and its just slightly sweet. So good on top of Siggi’s Spiced Apple yogurt which everyone needs to try.
Also really diggin’ ALOHA’s protein bars. All of ALOHA’s products are vegan, organic, non-GMO, dairy free, soy free, and gluten free. The protein bars have 18g of protein, and taste really good which is pretty impressive seeing how they’re made. I’ll be the first one to say that I think that vegan protein bars usually don’t taste great.. these have changed the way I think. The PB Chocolate is SO yummy! ALOHA offers free trials on all of their products which is really cool. You can try whatever you want for free here. You can also use our coupon code ‘CLEANEATING’ to save 20% off ALOHA products if you’ve already tried/love them 🙂
We’re also now Vitacost affiliates and putting in a big order.. so we’ll have more fun new products to share soon!
I just signed up for Rocksbox and I can’t wait to get it!! Rocksbox is like a monthly jewelry subscription box, except you can mail the jewelry back when you want something new. It should be here sometime next week.. hoping I get one of the many things I put on my wishlist.. like this gorgeous necklace & bracelet! If you sign up with coupon code ‘thecleaneatingcouplexoxo’ you can get a free month and we can be stylish together 🙂
I got this J. Crew vest in a fun orange color over the weekend for $25 at our J. Crew Outlet. (Yay for deals!) I have it in Navy and I practically wore it everyday last year!! I love this red color.. Might have to snag another
I’ve made this Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal from the Live Fit Girls every week for the past few weeks.. it’s SO good for breakfast!
I made Busy But Healthy’s Protein Waffles this weekend for breakfast with Garden of Life Organic Plant Protein in Smooth Coffee ( Love this stuff!! I won it from Erica Finds Giveaway!)
Dying to try this Butternut Squash Pasta with Shrimp & Sage from A Fit Philosophy. Looks like the perfect fall/winter dinner.
That’s all I’ve got for ya! Have a great day!
