Chinese Food has been on my mind all day today.

The kind people of MyBlogSpark sent me a sample of the New Wanchai Ferry Beef & Broccoli Meal for Two.

This meal was exactly what we needed tonight; I was tired from work and wanted something delicious and quick to prepare.

Simply heat rice in the microwave, heat vegetables and sauce, in the skillet over the stove. Place your skillet contents over the rice and serve.


  • Took 14 minutes as the package stated
  • Chris and I both LOVED the sauce…sweet and tangy
  • Beef cuts were surprisingly good (I’m not big on frozen beef cuts)
  • Great amount of vegetables (We love our broccoli)
  • No MSG


  • We are not big on eating white rice
  • Not enough rice for two people – Chris can EAT!

Overall, the Wanchai Ferry ”Beef & Broccoli” was a delicious alternative to Chinese take-out!

If your interested in trying this meal you can get a $1.50 off coupon here!

You can also check out the Wanchai website for more summer meal tips. There are also two other new flavors, Kung Pao Chicken and Szechuan Style Chicken, also five other delicious varieties including Orange Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein, Spicy Garlic Chicken and Sweet & Sour Chicken

Giveaway Time! Later this week I’ll have a gift for one lucky reader from Wanchai Ferry via MyBlogSpark!

(All information, frozen sample, prize pack and giveaway have all been provided by Wanchai Ferry through MyBlogSpark.)

Be on the lookout ;)

My first fun product that I have fallen for is the Gracie Gear A-Line Tank Top.


I’ve wanted a Tank with a built in pocket located on my chest for awhile now.  I ordered my tank in a medium and it fit snug, so I suggest you go up a size when purchasing the tank!

The Gracie Gear Tank’s pocket is definitely more comfortable for holding the ipod, money or phone when running.  Not having to worry about my ipod arm band falling off or slipping down, during a workout. 

Loving the light weight material and the length of the tank, which is longer than other brands.

 I love long tanks :)

  •  Made of polyester and spandex materials.
  •  Features a Power Pouch for all essential workout utilities. 
  •  Loop hole for cord feed. 
  • Sweeps sweat and heat for maximum ventilation. 
  •  Inhibits odor causing bacteria. 
  • Two inches longer than normal tank.
  • Can also be used as a bra.

Vitalicious Review

by Nicci on 10/15/2009

October is definitely a very busy month for me.  I’ve been cross-training at work which means I have a bigger work load, until my coworker comes back from Maternity Leave. 

I’ve never been big on 100 cal snacks because I didn’t feel they kept me satisfied. In fact I could eat about 2 packs and still be hungry. That was the case until I’d heard of Vita tops & wondered what they were and how they tasted!  How could I get my hands on this product that every blogger seems to love?


Well, the nice people at Vitalicous sent me free samples to test taste and review.  Vitalicious has vitatops, muffins, mixes, cakes, brownies and coffee.  All products are 100 cals, 4-7g of Fiber, 4g of Protein, low fat, trans-fat free, no cholesterol and contain up to 15 vitamins & minerals.

My Thoughts

  • I like that Vitalicious  products can stay fresh for 5+ shelf days or store in your freezer up to 9 months.  I’ve been keeping mine in the freezer, also my way of not eating them up in a week.
  • Appleberry VitaTop was one of my favorite muffins. Although I didn’t taste the apple chunks, I did taste the blue berries and cranberries.


  • I loved the Chocolate VitaBrownie for all the walnuts it contained :)  Chris tried the brownie and didn’t care for the taste of it.  He said it tasted like a ”diet brownie”, too bland and too many walnuts for him.


  •  The Blueberry Vitatop was also delicious and it paired well with my blueberry yourt for breakfast!



 I like Vitalicious products and still have many tops and muffins to sample.  I recevied these samples for free and I would purchase them online. I like that they are not expensive and can be purchased by the dozen for $14-16.  So, basically your paying under $1.50 for each, which is pretty cheap in my book!

I’m hoping the ”Vitalicious Fairy” will send me their cakes and mixes to sample! :-)

Have you tried Vitalicious products, what’s your favorite top, muffin or cake?

(Vitalicious products are also available in stores like Whole Foods, Publix,  and Krogers. Please check their website for more stores.)
