Quantcast

On January 1 of this year, I launched the 2014 Fitness Challenge here on THE ROCK FATHER. After years of leading a lifestyle that wasn't exactly great for my body, I started a gradual change three years ago when I quit smoking, and this year the time finally came to really start leading a healthy lifestyle. I've changed my diet, count calories, and now hit the gym 4-5 nights per week. One important change has been making sure not to skip breakfast (which I have a habit of forgetting to eat), and in doing so, I've rekindled my love of cereal - something that started last Fall when I first mentioned trying Silk Almondmilk after not drinking any kind of milk since 1989. Recently, the folks at Silk got in touch about their new Silk Almondmilk Blends - and one of them fit right into my routine: Protein + Fiber. Can Almondmilk rock? I say "YES!"

Last Fall, I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite companies, when I took a trip to Orrville, Ohio and spent a few days at Smucker's HQ. The folks at The J.M. Smucker Company have been producing some great things over the years, and for me, the down-home goodness just rings pure Americana when I think of it. Last week, Smucker's unveiled their new Smucker's Fruit-Fulls by turning the Flatiron District of New York City into a full-blown apple orchard, and to kick things off in-style, they brought along a familiar face when it comes to their brand - Willard Scott, the iconic weatherman and birthday well-wisher from NBC's TODAY Show. Did you know that Willard is down with THE ROCK FATHER? Take a peek at the Instagram video below...
