Catherine’s 25th Birthday Giveaway!

Hi from Chicago O’Hare International Airport! I am en route to Toronto, Canada and just missed my connection because my flight out of LAX was delayed. I thought I was in shape until I ran from Terminal C to Terminal E with my duffle bag and quickly learned that I should probably change up my cardio! So here I am, writing you from Chicago while I wait for the next flight to Toronto in 2 hours 3 and a half hours 3 hours and 50 minutes (delayed again).

But what better way to pass time at an airport than posting a giveaway for my amazing readers! It is officially my birthday week!

I’ve collected some super adorable bunny, fruit & veggie, and cooking themed items from my favorite Japanese store Daiso as well as some makeup from Butter London’s new fall collection “Brick Lane,” and an “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirt for the prize package!

In the Kitchen with Butter London + Giveaway

Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t just mean eating clean and working out. It means being happy, doing what you love, and pampering yourself. I am such a girly girly when it comes to fashion and beauty. I love doing my hair and make-up and think painting my nails is therapeutic. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I change my nail color almost daily.

Since I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking up new recipes for my blog and washing loads of dishes, nail lacquer doesn’t exactly last the longest. After trying gels repeatedly, I would still be left with broken brittle nails that took weeks to recover. I’ve tried tons of different polishes and although I love my collection of OPI and Essie, nothing lasts quite as long as Butter London!

Since I love Butter so much, they’ve generously provided this amazing little Butter box full of goodies for one lucky RFFMBT reader! The box includes a collection of six Nail Lacquers to keep your nails super glam, two Backstage Basics Lotions to keep your hands perfectly moisturized and smooth, and a super luxe Wink Eye Pencil.

My mani is always put to the test when I’m working with my hands in the kitchen. After a round of cooking and dishes, I’m usually left with a messy mani and chipped polish, but I’ve noticed that Butter polishes stay much longer than other brands.

Butter-London-In-the-Kitchen-3
I’m in love with Butter London’s new Flawless Gel Topcoat. It dries quickly and gives a super high shine that looks like a gel mani. It also protects your nails from chips and nicks twice as long as your average topcoat without weakening or damaging your nails like traditional gels.

After doing dishes, I like to moisturize with Butter’s Backstage Basics Signature Lotion. It’s formulated with shea butter and antioxidants to hydrate and soothe your skin.

Slam Dunk Lettuce Wraps + Dole Giveaway

I love DOLE Chopped Salads because it’s a quick and easy way to eat more rabbit food. They’re filled with all sorts of goodies like different lettuces (green cabbage, red cabbage, and kale), broccoli slaw, carrots, and even snap peas! It’s an easy way to change up my usual all spinach or all kale salad and get some different textures and new flavors in the mix. My fav way to eat a chopped salad is to pour the entire bag (yup, all 4 servings! Only 100 calories and 8 grams of fiber for the entire thing!) into a gigantic mixing bowl, throw on some homemade dressing, mix it up, and nom nom that shiznit up. Straight out of the mixing bowl. Awww yeahhhh. But besides eating the entire bag like a rabbit, I love branching out and making new recipes. For example, I love filling spring rolls with the Asian Blend for a quick and easy appetizer when friends come over!

Since March Madness is just around the corner and basketball is all about those slam dunks, I teamed up (no pun intended!) with DOLE Salads to make the ultimate dunk recipe! Serve them up while watching the March Madness games as a fresh snack that’s so healthy, you can dunk into that sauce alllll you want! I love that the Asian Blend is filled with green cabbage, red cabbage, kale, broccoli slaw, snap peas, and carrots. It makes for a super easy veggie filling for my lettuce wraps with little prep!

These fresh Asian lettuce wraps are so easy to make, and even easier to devour!
They’re a total slam dunk!

Barbie Bowl + Pitaya Plus Giveaway

Today’s recipe and giveaway is brought to you by my new favorite superfood brand: Pitaya Plus!
Ummm, how gorg is this color?
Seriously, to die for.

Pitaya-Bowl-Pitaya-Plus-8

I’ve been obsessing over pitaya smoothies and smoothie bowls at my favorite local spot Nekter, and when Pitaya Plus caught wind of my new healthy addiction, they offered to send me some of their smoothie packs to try! They were also kind enough to giveaway some Pitaya Plus Smoothie Packs to one lucky RFFMBT reader!

can’t. contain. my. excitement. right. now.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ok. excitement is now contained.

So… what is Pitaya?
Pitaya, otherwise known as dragon fruit, is a fruit that comes from the cactus species. It’s native throughout Asia as well as Mexico, Central America, and South America. It’s glossy magenta exterior cuts open to reveal a gorgeous vivid pink interior (Central America), studded with black seeds. Depending on where the fruit is from the flesh can also be white inside (Asia).

What does it taste like?
Its texture is very similar to a kiwi, but its flavor is more mild, almost a cross between a kiwi and pear.

Here’s why I love Pitaya Plus Smoothie Packs:

Raw // Did you know that Pitaya Smoothie packs are never cooked or heated? Most other smoothie packs are cooked and pasteurized. Our pitayas are picked at the peak of ripeness, and flash frozen to ensure you get the most nutrients. Maybe that is why it looks so bright and alive when blended?

No added sugar //  Helping maintain healthy levels of insulin in the blood, keeping energy levels stable, a low-carb, low-sugar diet has proven to be a good weapon in the war against obesity. A low-carb diet is essential to maintaining safe blood sugar levels for diabetics, and can help reverse the onset of adult diabetes.

Antioxidants  // Helps neutralize the formation of cancer causing free radicals.

Fiber // Helps to lower cholesterol, Lower blood-glucose levels and improve you digestive health by removing harmful toxins.

Vitamin C // Experts say Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective antioxidants. Benefits of vitamin C are known to include strengthening and protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.

Calcium & Magnesium // Calcium is essential for the  body to protect and heal. Magnesium increases the absorption of calcium in the body. Both are required for general health. They work in harmony to help the body in numerous ways to keep illness and disease at bay.

Omega-3s // Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.

I  would definitely say that Pitaya puts the “Super” in Superfruit!
These smoothie packs are an easy way to add pitaya to your daily noms. Since pitaya can be tricky to find (often at Asian and exotic food markets), it’s great to have it right at my fingertips and year round in my freezer!
