Turn your favorite FatBoy Ice Cream Sandwiches into FatterBoys - by adding yummy rainbow sprinkles! #recipe #ad #youdeserveit #oldschoolcool #fatboyicecream

Boy, do I have a TREAT for you today! Consider this your Easy & Special Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Alert.

FatBoy has been a favorite brand in this household for as long as I can remember. There are ice cream sandwiches, and then there are FatBoy ice cream sandwiches. They are the original “old school cool.” Also, they have HISTORY! FatBoy has been around for a long time – since 1925 – and they have been putting other ice cream sandwiches to shame for decades. It’s because they’re “ginormous” and even Des uses that name to describe them. You see why they’re called “FatBoy, right?”

Now, have you ever heard of a “FatterBoy?” Bear with me, because if this is your first time hearing about FatBoys, you’re in for a treat, two times over! FatterBoys are somewhat amazing. You see, FatBoy ice cream sandwiches are amazing in their own right, right? Right. Well FatterBoys are what you make when you take your FatBoy ice cream sandwiches to the next level. Make no mistake – FatBoys stand tall and proud (and thick) all on their own, but sometimes it’s fun to experiment.

This is my way to make easy and special ice cream sandwiches. As you probably know, we have birthday central all summer long around here. The best thing I do, according to my kids, is to go to Sam’s Club for a few boxes of FatBoy ice cream sandwiches and then take them to the next level. The best news is that kids can help. All you do is buy your favorite sprinkles (rainbow for us), put a pile of your sprinkles on a flat surface, and then dip all four sides of your ice cream sandwiches into the sprinkles. This favorite party recipe only takes two ingredients, and it’s the epitome of summer fun!

Whether you’re planning a party, a play date, a movie night, or anything else under the sun, try my easy recipe!

I’m drooling while looking at these photos.

So let’s talk more about FatBoy! They’re All-American (since 1925), nostalgic and incredibly versatile, as you can see above. In their case, Fat is a compliment to them because their real, delicious ice cream is too big to big contained in a skinny ice cream sandwich or a flimsy scoop! It’s been their name for over 90 years, and they aren’t changing it! Also, the bigger the ice cream, the more smiles, right? So this is all about more “bang for your buck.” There’s a lot of ice cream in that box!

Not only that, there’s a Fat lineup of flavors, including S’mores, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, and even a stereotype-busting original vanilla flavor too. I’ve had it a lot – there’s nothing “boring” about this vanilla ice cream!

So what do you think? Are you ready to explore FatBoy? What would you do to make a FatterBoy? Are sprinkles king for you, or would you try something else? There are a lot of options! You could dip the sides in chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips. Or all of the above! You could dip your entire FatBoy into chocolate, and make it into an ice cream cake. The options are endless and amazing, but I’m partial to my own way of using sprinkles to dress them up into party treats!

FatBoy ice cream sandwiches are available at Sam’s Club, Associated Food Stores, and more. To find a store that carries FatBoy Ice Cream Sandwiches near you visit the store locator here to check. And be sure you check for promotions here!

Are you taking every step to ensure your best digestive health? These 8 steps are all within reach for your best digestive health! #ad #NatureMadeProbiotics

I used to joke that there were two kinds of people in this world – people who fret about their digestive health, because they have reason to fret about their digestive health – and then people who don’t because they’ve never had reason to fret.

Of course, I now know it’s not so black and white. The thing is, who has time to fret? At this point in my life, I’m all about actions, tips, and routines. I’m all about making a number of choices that affect my everyday life. As you can probably tell, I fall into the first category of people in my own theory – I’m a fretter. All of my feelings go straight to my stomach. It can be quiet during quiet life seasons and phases, and then there will be transitions and changes that will set it off again.

Sometimes you just don’t know, and that’s why you take action. This is, quite frankly, my action pose:

Personally, I have found my experience with probiotics to be transformative. I take one every day, and I also follow seven other steps to ensure my best digestive health. Truth is, I need this for my life. As a mama of two, I constantly have to be at my best for camp or school drop-offs and pick-ups and camp or school activities in which I attend. There’s doctor appointments, piano lessons, after school classes, and weekend sports. For work, when I’m not blogging around the clock, I go on long photo shoots. Sometimes I’ll expect to be at a photo shoot for an hour, and four hours will pass by in a flash!

I think this is one of the gifts of better digestive health – time passing is no problem, and with no problems.

That’s why I’m excited to share my eight steps for better digestive health. They are all within your reach, quite literally, like my #1 tip for Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotics – found in Walmart with vitamin supplements.

I’m excited to talk about my Eight Steps (Within Your Reach) For Better Digestive Health:

Are you taking every step to ensure your best digestive health? These 8 steps are all within reach for your best digestive health! #ad #NatureMadeProbiotics

1 – Take Nature Made Advanced Dual Action Probiotics. What are probiotics? They are “good” bacteria that naturally exist in cultured or fermented foods (think yogurt and some cheeses) that offer benefits for your digestive system. They also crowd out unwanted organisms to allow more of the “good” bacteria to be present in your gut. That’s why using a probiotics supplement is a great way to increase your intake of “good” bacteria and help naturally support your digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† They’re available at Walmart at a Trusted Every Day Low Price.

This Advanced Dual Action Probiotic comprises of two probiotic strains. Each strain’s function and the symptoms each of the strains relieve is right on the label. Bifidobacterium lactis (large intestine) helps with constipation and irregularity. Lactobacillus plantarum (small intestine) helps with gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort.

2 – Eat a diet higher in fiber. This helps keep food moving through your digestive tract. Get soluble AND insoluble fiber.

3 – And with that, drink more water. You can’t eat more fiber alone, and not also be properly hydrated. Together, foods higher in fiber and enough water will help you achieve better digestive health. Always keep them both within reach.

4 – Exercise regularly. With the two types of fiber, AND the water, exercise will help all of your systems work properly.

5 – Limit fats. Although fats are also important to your diet, pair them with fibers, and pair carbs with proteins.

6 – Eat (at least somewhat) on a schedule. Aim for your three meals and maybe 2-3 snacks around the same time each day.

7 – Manage stress. For me, this is the most key step. Stress can send your digestive system into overdrive!

8 – Skip or limit bad habits. Cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine can interfere with your digestive health.

Each step works well individually, but they’re best working together. Incorporating a probiotic supplement into my daily routine has been key for me. So I have, for you, my top 4 reasons to switch to Nature Made Advanced Dual Action Probiotics.

1 – MORE Coverage. Unlike most single strain probiotics, it delivers the “good” bacteria your body needs in both your small and large intestines – thus giving you more comprehensive digestive coverage!

2 – It’s science you can count on. It’s been scientifically studied, so you can feel confident that it will provide the digestive support your system needs.†

3 – Serious about quality. Nature Made products are made to the highest quality standards to ensure purity and safety. They come individually wrapped to maximize potency and deliver more digestive tract coverage than most other single strain products.

4 – Lastly, satisfaction guaranteed! If you’re not satisfied, for any reason, with your Nature Made Advanced Dual Action probiotics, you can then send it back for a full refund.
