Spring Cleaning Life

Spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. The kids are anticipating the end of school, and I have begun the process of what I call spring cleaning life. Now we all have heard of spring cleaning before; that time of year when we open up the windows and deep clean our homes. And certainly, that is something that happens in our household. Spring cleaning life though means a bit more. For our family, it is a time of year when we not only clean the house; we clean our lives. We evaluate the choices we make on a daily basis and get rid of the poor habits that have maybe crept into our lives. We re-evaluate what we eat and how we exercise. Spring cleaning life is about building a healthy home AND body, and that goes for everyone in the house from me to the pets. We hope that you enjoy this Spring Cleaning Life post.

Spring cleaning the body

A part of our commitment to spring cleaning life is staying active, and making sure that our kids have activities planned that will keep them moving and healthy. My husband and I renew our commitment to hitting the gym, and for the kids we look for activities like swim team, mountain biking, and triathlons. The key with the kids is finding activities that they truly enjoy; we are trying to build life long habits here.

We take the same approach to the food that we consume. Spring cleaning life means questioning our diet. Are we eating enough vegetables? How about fruit? We answer these questions and then adjust our habits.

Spring Cleaning Life - PREY Dog Food

We ask the same questions about our pets as well. We have a few dogs in the household, and when it's spring cleaning life time, they are a part of the process. Just like with the human members of the family, we take a moment to evaluate whither or not our pets needs (both dietary and fitness) are being met.

This year we decided to change up what we were feeding our little furry ones. We tried out PREY dog food from Taste of the Wild. Our dogs are a part of our family, so we wanted them eating just as nutritiously as every other member of our household.

Spring Cleaning Life - PREY Dog Food 2

PREY by Taste of the Wild

What we really liked about the PREY brand of dog food was how simply and cleanly it met our dogs needs. PREY is made with no grains, non-GMO ingredients, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.  Each formula is made up of four key ingredients; real cage-free turkey, spring-fed trout or pasture-raised Angus beef, plus lentils, tomato pomace and sunflower oil. Simple and clean.

Our pets have been eating the PREY formula for a few weeks now, and they both love the flavor. Their coats are shinier and softer plus they have more energy which means more dog park visits which we love. If you would like to learn more about PREY or Taste of the Wild, check out their site. It's quite informative…I certainly learned.

So that's how we approach spring cleaning. We make it a time to focus on the entire household, not just the house itself, down to our little pets.

So how do you approach spring cleaning? Have you ever thought of spring cleaning life?

  29. Your long haired dachshund is beautiful. My dog Buddy, is a Yokie dachshund mix. He looks more yorkie but I see the dachshund in him. He has the typical tummy troubles that goes with the breed. We had to switch him to a grain-free diet that was gentle on his tummy. I have not given him this brand but Ill have to see if they have a fish and potato blend.
