This Adorably Lazy Cat Reviews ‘Beef Wellington’ and ‘Chicken Pate’

A few weeks ago, that frou frou cat “Mittens” recommended I try Purrfect Bistro. While I rarely take anything seriously that hairy dude says, I secretly ordered a package of it anyway. Just don’t tell Mittens.

If you do, we’re totally not friends anymore.

The package arrived while I was in the middle of my usual routine — kicking back with some Saturday morning cartoons while trying to hide the remote from Socks. Then, just as Spongebob was showing that starfish who’s boss, the doorbell rang.

I leaped off the couch with the quickness of a trained ninja and opened the door.


Ugh. I was happier than a kitten in a pool of catnip and silly string.

Of course, Socks took the liberty of opening it himself.

Socks 9

He’s the reason we can’t have nice things.

Once I managed to get rid of Socks, I set up a swanky picnic for myself.

I started off with Beef Wellington packed with Omegas. Gotta keep that fur lookin’ fine for the ladies.

Socks 4

That Chicken Pate tho. Low carbs, high protein and most delicious thing EVAR.

Socks 5

I followed up the main course with some grain-free chicken grub, aka #SNACKSONSNACKSONSNACKS

Socks 7

Overall, some pretty classy treats that’ll put you in an epic food coma and make you useless for the rest of the day. Can’t be mad at that!

If you’re trying to impress a certain lady cat in your life or just want to eat proper, grab some grub here or head to your closest Petco or other specialty pet shop.

You also get $4 off any Merrick Purrfect Bistro dry food bag or 50¢ off any wet food with this coupon.

Watch This Guy Crush a 10-Calorie Workout for New 7UP TEN Commercial


7UP’s new commercial for their 10-calorie drink, 7UP TEN, hits really close to home for me.

There’s an overzealous exerciser that reminds me of some goober from a retro gym video who spends more time gearing up for his workout than actually working out. It also reminds me of how terribly inefficient I am every time I attempt to do some sort of workout session. I throw on some gym shorts, lace up shoes, do stretches, check Instagram, one more stretch, check Facebook, update Pandora, flex in the mirror, hit the sauna, and then ultimately decide the dude hogging the bench press pisses me off and it’s time to go home.

7Up’s new 10-calorie offering addresses just that dilemma — you don’t have to sacrifice the flavor in your drinks, and you can still get away with a silly workout to shed off those minuscule 10-calories. The Dr Pepper Snapple Group released 7UP TEN this year, along with a suite of 10-calorie sodas including: A&W TEN, Sunkist TEN, Canada Dry TEN, and RC TEN.

Along with the launch of the sodas, their campaign invites folks to essentially #GetBoth — enjoying great flavor while consuming fewer calories. Watch this fan-made video and see how the goober of all goobers #getsboth:

[SPONSORED] Living Healthier and Naturally Through a Water Cooler

If you follow us at all, you know we cover a fair amount of over-the-top delicious food. Many of it may be processed, fatty, sweet and indulgent. In reality, if we ate everything we posted about, or didn’t supplement our negative eating habits with positive ones every so often, we’d be asking for health problems. As delicious as that double cheeseburger is, I’ve been trying to find personal ways to eat and feel better.

Our latest initiative is getting a water cooler into the office to ease up on the amount of caloric drinks we intake on the daily. The fresh water allows us to stay hydrated naturally, and saves us a ton of money in the process. Not only do we more easily get to our desired number of glasses of H2O every day, but we don’t have to head out to the liquor store every time our throat gets dry.

For myself, I’m also a big coffee drinker, so keeping my favorite grinds on deck, my favorite mug clean and the hot water faucet on the new cooler busy, I’ve also managed to keep my monthly coffee bill down to a respectable amount. Considering this is a sponsored post by the folks at Coffee Mate, I figured the segway between my excessive coffee drinking and going natural would go hand-in-hand. And I don’t often drink my coffee black, so I’m going to need something natural to flavor it with (can you say Coffee-mate Natural Bliss ?).

Yes, I still like my occasional soda, but trading out a couple sodas each week for several glasses of water has really made me feel like a champ. How have you gone natural recently?

Now you can enhance the coffee flavor you love with Coffee-mate Natural Bliss,
a new all-natural dairy creamer made with only milk, cream, a touch of sugar
and pure natural flavor. Flavors like sweet cream, vanilla and caramel add just
the right touch of sweetness and delicious flavor for your perfect cup every time.
