As a member of Crowdtap, I was selected to sample and share Healthy Choice Baked Entrees by redeeming a $1.00 off coupon and sharing with all of my friends and social networks! This means I get to sample and share and spread the word about how Healthy Choice Baked Entrees can help you ditch the diet and just live healthy. This is what I was given in my Party Kit:

  • $1 off (nearly 50% off retail price) digital coupon for Healthy Choice Baked Entrées
I'm a HUGE Lasagna fan, so I grabbed a bunch of them! I couldn't resist grabbing a few other Healthy Choice frozen entrees as well! (ps, see the aluminum covered tray on the next shelf? That's frozen Lasagna! That's how much I love Lasagna!)

The first thing I did, was go to the store and check out all of the different kinds of Healthy Choice Baked Entree's were available..There were six different Baked Entrees available:

  • Chicken and Rice Cheddar Bake
  • Fettuccini Alfredo Bake
  • Four Cheese Ziti Marinara Bake
  • Italian Sausage Pasta Bake
  • Lasagna with Meat Sauce
  • Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

I decided to try the Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna first! I opened the box, and took out the package. The Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna is a nice size portion! I flipped over the box and read the instructions. Very simple. No Oven? No Problem! Enjoy savory fresh-baked taste from the microwave with new Baked Entrées!  Takes 6 to 7 minutes in the microwave. After I cooked the Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna, I expected it to look like most lasagnas that come out of the microwave..a little burnt and a cheesy mess! NOPE!! Not Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna! See for yourself!

No burning, no cheesy mess!

Looks better than home made!

Now let's talk about the taste. It's so fresh and creamy and saucy! I couldn't stop talking to all of my friends and family about how great the lasagna is! I distributed a bunch of Healthy Choice coupons so they could try them at a discounted price! I also bought Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna for my family to try and served it to them. Here's a photo of my Dad trying Healthy Choice Baked Lasagna!

He's on a diet and has been for 5 months now. He's thrilled to have found a Lasagna that he can enjoy! He's all about ditching his diet and living healthy! He's lost over 50lbs!

Here's a few other friends and family that enjoy Healthy Choice Entrees!

I think that having Each Baked entré brimming with flavor, like the Lasagna with Meat Sauce made with fresh pasta; is why the Healthy Choice Baked entree's stand out from other "diet" foods. You can actually taste the freshness!

As a Crowdtap Member, you are often invited to host Sample and share parties. What this means is you are given free products or coupons for free products to distribute to a friend or friends as well as yourself. In this particular instance, I was invited to host an Old Navy Sample and Share for Fall Dresses! I was so excited to get a free dress and one for a friend! Crowdtap sends you a Party Kit in the mail, here is what is in the kit:

  • 1 Welcome Letter
  • 1 Set of Coupons (1 for member, 1 for a friend)
While I patiently waited for my Party Kit from Crowdtap, I decided to look online at to see what dress I may choose..

I generally go for Cowl Neck Dresses when it gets chilly, so that's where I started..I found a few other dresses that I thought I might like too..the anticipation was killing me! I couldn't wait to get my coupons!

I had so much fun hosting my Old Navy Fall Dress sample and share! I usually go to the same Old Navy for my sample + shares and parties, but this time I decided to travel a distance and go to the Old Navy in Danbury, Connecticut. It's about a 2 hour drive each way.

 Here are some of the dresses I had to choose from at the Old Navy in Danbury, CT. I ended up choosing the one on the right!

I tried on the one in the middle, and my mom tried on the one on the left..I really liked the dress, and so did mom, but it had Wool in it and I can't wear Wool. Neither can my mother.

I usually go to the Old Navy in Canton CT. To travel to Canton from my home, it takes about 45 mins to get there. From my home to Danbury mall, it's about 2 hours. The Old Navy in Danbury is nice, but it isn't as well organized as the one in Canton. I'm glad I went to another Old Navy though, I wanted a new experience with different Old Navy associates and managers to see what the difference in demographic and layout of the store is like.

There were quite a few dresses to choose from

Most of the dresses were right in the front of the store

I love crossover dresses!

I love the dress in the middle

I enjoyed my experience and had plenty of dresses to choose from. BUT, my usual store has a better layout and flow and the associates are more friendly. I definitely have a better selection in the store in Canton, as the Old Navy didn't have the Blue Cowl Neck dress I was seeking, I ended up getting a black one instead. I still had a great time and so did my mom!

The spots are not on the's my camera

Mom knew right away that this was the one for her

I fell in love with the same cowl neck dress as mom!

I love how the cowl neck dress hugs my body

Mom liked this dress, but it has wool in it

I like how this dress drapes on problem areas

I wanted to love this dress! I do love it, just not the wool material

If it weren't wool, it would've brought it home with me

I had such a good time trying on dresses with my mom!

This dress is so body friendly, anyone could wear it

colored tights will add a nice pop of color to this

While I was hosting my sample and share, I found a great Pea Coat and Scarf that I ended up purchasing!

I love how the scarf, Peacoat, and Dress all coordinate

when it's even colder, tights will be perfect with this!

Here's just the peacoat and dress

Mom and I actually wore the same boots too!

Mom and I sporting our free Old Navy Dresses!

Mom and I both wore our dresses on Thanksgiving!

I really wanted a Cowl Neck dress from Old Navy and that is exactly what I ended up with! I am so happy with my free dress! It fits fantastic! I couldn't help myself but to purchase a few things while I was at Old Navy, there was so many items on sale! I ended up purchasing a gorgeous Red Peacoat and Striped Scarf to go with my dress that I received for Free! I really love Old Navy products, and have no problem sporting Old Navy from head to toe!
