Friday Favorites, October Edition!

A while back I posted a Five Favorites Friday post and it seemed like the perfect time for another one since I have discovered some new things lately!

1.  Cascadian  Farms Cinnamon Crunch Cereal  I love this cereal and everything I have tried from Cascadian Farms.  The company recently implemented a program to make the inner bags for their cereal boxes with 57% bio-based material.  It is a great step forward and another reason to love their products!

My new favorite cereal!

2.  Boom Chicka Pop  Ever since my friend Kathy introduced me to this snack, easily purchased in large bags at Costco, I always have it in my pantry.  It is a great snack that has no trans fats, is gluten free, for those with dietary issues and is only 35 calories per cup.

Try it, but beware, it is addicting!

3.  Trader Joe's Veggie & Flaxseed Tortilla Chips  We love tortilla chips and with these containing flaxseed, garlic and spinach, I consider them a healthy snack!

These are yummy with  red pepper  flavored Hummus!

4.  Nathan Strobe Light for Runners   I recently purchased this light for early morning running while shopping with my mom last month at the Natick Collection.  The Athleta Store had these by the register and I thought it would be good for the dark mornings I am now facing for early runs.  It is amazing, with a super bright light (there are three) and it has either all on, or blinking.  I wear this attached to my top collar on my back so cars can see me as they approach.  It works really well with my fluorescent vest!

Lots of color choices too, but I like the pink!

5.  Love this photo from our Wednesday night dinner celebrating Christine's birthday!

Do you have any new products you are loving?  Please share with us!


  1. Beautiful picture of the two loves of your life!
    Things I'm loving right now are all the pumpkin flavored treats that are out and I am definitely loving this weather this week! It's like summer hasn't left us yet! ~M

  2. Yup, pumpkin flavored treats are always a fun part of the fall. Enjoy the summery weather because it will be gone soon!

  3. I tried a bunch of Go Macro bars for a blog review - DELICIOUS! Also Alive and Radiant Veggie Crunch. Amazing!

    1. I have not heard of the Go Macro bars.....will give those a try. My local health food store sells them! Thanks for the suggestions Erica.

  4. Have you tried Brownie Brittle? My friend finds it at Costco, but I've heard different areas carry different products, so I'm not sure if it's a local Costco thing or everywhere. I've also found it at Bed Bath and Beyond. It's my new favorite sin!

    1. Never heard of it Jennifer, but as a fan of chocolate and brownies, I will look for it on my next trip to Costco. Thanks for the suggestion!
