Football, Super Bowl, Eating Healthy - tips and recipes

The football playoffs are in full swing and the Super Bowl is coming up!

  Even if you are not a "Fan" of the game, you still want to have those yummo snacks that everyone else is eating while watching. The hubsters and I are back on the wagon (me Weight Watchers) and that is hard when it comes to football season and snacking. I did some research and came up with some great LOW FAT (low points for WW users) that you can try at home and they are delicious!

Skinny Salsa Wraps:  2 Fat Free flour tortilla (believe me, they are better than the non-fat ones), 2 Tbls salsa, 4 oz fat free cream cheese, a spoonful of fat free sour cream and some Weight Watchers Taco Shredded Cheese - combine all but the shredded cheese and spread over 2 large FF flour tortillas, then sprinkle with cheese, roll up and put into the refrig for about an hour (you can go longer). When ready to eat, cut into small bite size rounds. Each round is only 1 WW point each! (should make 8 rounds) 

Skinny Taco Dip:  1 8 Oz package of FF cream cheese (room temp), 1/2 cup FF sour cream, 1 package of taco seasoning, salsa, all the diff veggies you want (lettuce, tomatoes, olives, onions etc) and 1/3rd cup WW or FF shredded cheddar.  Combine the cream cheese and the sour cream into your mixer.  Mix well, then add the taco seasoning packet.  Mix and spread into a baking dish Let this sit in the refrig for an hour or more to "set up".    Then spread your salsa layer on, layer up all your veggies and sprinkle with 1/3 cup of your cheese.   Use small tortilla round chips or reduced fat Wheat Thins or even veggies for dipping. only 1 point per serving (should make 20 servings or so)

Veggie Dip: (great for dipping  FF Sour cream and 1 package of the veggie soup mix (dry). Mix all together and let sit for 1 hour or longer before serving.  Only 1 point per 2 Tbls.  You can also stick a few WW string cheese sticks in there for some more fun!

Dessert Ideas:  Cut up strawberries and put a Tbls of FF Whipped Topping on them. Sprinkle with 1 Tblsp of mini Chocolate Chips.   Fat Free Jello Pudding Cups...OH YUMMO!

If you like to partake in some spirits, here is a low cal drink that is sure to make your mouth say yumm.  1 cup of Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry & Pomegranate juice 1 shot of Vodka and a twist of lime.  Shake over ice! You can also put a strawberry or two into the bottom of the glass!

Have a great weekend!  

Be blessed!

So, if I wanted to, I could make those same things with the full-fat ingredients, right? Because I like fat. ;-). Thanks for the recipes! I'm gonna use them when the Super Bowl sales roll around!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
