Because wordless isn’t really my thing.
Plus I’m sick (blech) and now seems like a good time to play computer catch-up, and I need words for that.
I’ve got a bit of a double whammy here – I caught a cold from one daughter and a touch of a stomach bug from the other, so I’m a big gross mess right now. I guess it’s good that I’m getting it over with now, since we’ve only got two weeks left before summer and lots of school stuff coming up.
Plus I’ve got quite a bit of travel coming up: Vermont (family thing), back to Israel (more on that in another post), and probably one last trip to Universal Studios before the Florida resident blockout dates start. Oh – and my sister and I are going to Fort Lauderdale for a New Kids on the Block concert. Squee! I was a HUGE fan back in their heyday, and it’s been at least 25 years since I last saw them in concert, so it’s going to be a lot of fun. (Ugh, I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since I’ve done anything. How did this 40 thing happen again?)
Anyhow, it’s going to be a busy summer, and I’m looking forward to spending it with my girls. (I reserve the right to redact that statement in 6-8 weeks.)
In the spirit of catching up, I’ve got a handful of things to share with you.
Tenet Ticker Tips
First, Tenet Florida Physician Services (TFPS) asked me to share their Ticker Tips campaign with you. I think you’ll find it helpful.
TFPS is a multi-specialty physician group with 100+ physicians including specialists, sub-specialists and primary care doctors, all based in the South Florida area. The Ticker Tips campaign was developed by their cardiologists as a way to share information and promote heart health. They did this with a series of 28 videos, each with a different heart (aka, “ticker”) health tip. The videos are very short (22 seconds each), and each directs the reader to a page where the tip is explained in detail by a physician.
I’m having some technical difficulties posting an example of one of the videos here, so for now I’ll share this link, which will take you to all 28 videos: facebook.com/tfpsdocs/videos. Take a minute to read through some of the tips – there’s some really good info there, including some stuff that I’d never heard before.
You can also find all 28 Ticker Tips on tickertips.tfpsheart.com/ and you can connect with them on Twitter at twitter.com/TFPSDocs.
Have you heard of Ka’Chava? It’s a vegan protein powder, but it’s so much more too. It’s loaded with “tribal superfoods” like chia seeds, maca root, maqui berry, amaranth, acai berry, and more. It’s also 100% vegan with no animal products and no allergens such as gluten, dairy or soy.
As I’ve shared before, protein powders aren’t really my thing. But I’ve read some incredible reviews about it, particularly from a number of vegan bloggers. And if you want to try it for yourself, Ka’Chava is giving away a full-size container of their product (either chocolate or vanilla) to one of my readers. Each container includes 15 servings of Ka’Chava and retails online for $69.95. Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter below to enter.

Hope you had a great Wednesday! Talk soon.
I’ve never tried Ka’Chava but would like to give it a shot. The only protein powder I’ve ever tried was one as a Smoothie King mix in and it made me feel bloated. Since that incident, I’ve been a little scared to try them again but see the benefit of them and would love if this one would work for me!
Andrea from Serial Racing says
This looks like an awesome product! I will check it out. I have been looking for a good quality protein powder.
I haven’t tried it. Right now I use the Vega protein powder.
Mikey DeGraw says
I’m always looking for a healthy vegan protein powder. Would love to be able to try this!
Patty wright says
i haven’t tried it or heard of it.
Sara @ lifebetweenthemiles says
I haven’t tried or heard of this protein powder, but I am definitely interested in a plant based protein powder.
I have never tried this product but surely intrigued 😉
I don’t have a favorite but looking to find on that could become a must have/favorite.
BustA Groove says
I’ve been looking for alternative for plant based protein powders.
I would love to try this protein powder! I only use vegan and am always on the hunt for something new to try! 🙂
I’ve never tried this before but would love to! Hope you get to feeling better soon!
Thanks, Tessa! <3
I love giveaways 🙂 This is a new name for me. Great!
I didn’t even realize that Universal Studios had Florida resident blockout dates. It makes sense because Disney World does too, but I didn’t think about it.
I’m so excited to see NKOTB!!! 🙂
They do for the Power Pass. Not sure about the other passes. It’s actually for almost the entire summer, which stinks a little – but it gets so miserably hot that I’m not sure that we’d go during the summer anyway.
Erin Ellis says
I have not tried it, but I would love to. Right now I am using Organic Naturals protein powder. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
