Relieving pain with #WellAtWalgreens Keeping my family Happy & Healthy

Last year my familys world got flipped upside down. My dad got really sick and all our lives got changed forever. Its been a rough ride but with faith and togetherness as a family we have gotten through it. Some of the big changes since then come with our at home necessities. Some people watch me go shopping at Walgreens and wonder whats with all the wellness products but they are all too necessary for our day to day life with relieving pain and keeping healthy. 
With a preschooler and a father with serious medical needs I am constantly needing something from the #WellAtWalgreens line. And I also need to have a go to at home care kit to keep up with our needs. A little pain reliever here and a couple bandages there need to be restocked and ready for our family. 
Typically we head out every couple of weeks and restock and add. I joke about it but sometimes it feels like I could run my own nurse station from home. 

Dont forget to sign up for a Walgreens balance Rewards member card. Its FREE! You get this cute card/key-chain mini card and you can either bring it in during check out or they can even look up your phone number and the points start stacking up and they sure help. 
Here is a typical kit with a mix for both my munchkin and my dad. 
Band aids, bandages, rolling tape and pain reliever. Neosporin, thermometer, and so much more! Its not easy but when you have great prices for good products it all works out especially when you know there commitment to aid our communities. 

Walgreens way to well commitment- starting February 1st of 2011 through December 2014, 1 cent from the purchase of every Walgreens brand health & wellness product, up to 3 million annually will support bringing preventative  wellness services to local communities through the Walgreens way to well commitment. 
What could possibly be better than a happy healthy family?

Happy Mommy On the Go with P3 #PortableProtein

I am a member of Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.  This story and all opinions are 100% my own.
This week has been a rough one. Being on Spring Break with the Munchkin has me on the go. Being busy between taking care of my dad and entertaining my kiddo while hes off from school I sometimes forget to eat right and my snacking might go in the opposite direction of healthy because of convenience.  I am so glad that I took a chance to try out a new product the P3 #portableprotein Packs, since they've quickly become my Go to Mommy snack. 
When at Walmart shopping I saw 3 of the 4 varieties of Oscar Mayer P3 #PortableProtein packs.  

The 4 varieties all have #MeatCheeseNuts and are: 

  • Applewood Smoked Turkey Breast
  • Applewood Smoked Ham
  • Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken Breast
  • Slow Roasted Turkey Breast
They looked yummy! Easy to carry on the go protein packs that I dont need to worry about making because I just take one out of the fridge and put it in my bag and im on my way to a new adventure! 
On any day I go from walking my kiddo to school to crafty me time and taking care of my dad to back to pick up munchkin from school then play dates and visits, park visits and even a little work out at the park while my kiddo plays right next to me. Yes, I am very lucky that at our local park there is free exercise equipment right next to a play area so we can both have fun and be healthy together. 
After a little walk and some exercising I just take out one of these #portableprotein packs from my bag (The p3 are suppose to be refrigerated but dont worry I always have a thermos bag inside my backpack to keep things cool) and nutritious snacking here I come! I was most excited to try out the Applewood Smoked ham and trust me it did not let me down. I am a major fan of almonds. Plus at only a $1 a pack you can't go wrong! 
Here's a close up of one of the packs. A Nutritious balance of Meat, cheese and nuts conveniently ready at a moments notice for you to take on the go. 
I like when adventures just pop up. And I need my snacking choices to be ready for adventure at a moments notice just like me. No more tired me on the go or bad food choices me. I have a quick snack and it leaves me feeling recharged and more productive for whats ahead. Especially with summer just right around the corner! That means zoo visits and theme parks and summer vacation and more and with P3 Portable protein packs and Im ready on the go! I hope to see you check them out at a local store near you. 

Which is your favorite snack pack or which one are you most excited for?
