Now that summer is almost here, I started walking and doing indoor exercises. Depending on the weather, I prefer to go for a walk to take advantage of the fresh air and sunshine! There are also times when I want to do pilates, yoga, cardio or cardio kickboxing. It just depends on my energy level and my mood for the morning. Regardless, I like to fuel my body before and after!

Treat Yourself to Something New

Treat Yourself to Something New

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As the mom of four little ones under six and under I’m bad about not taking the time to do things for myself, or I don’t always put myself first. I’ve decided that lately, I needed to take time to change that because as a parent I’m important too.

How can I make sure to treat myself?

Creating A Unique Date Night In

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Since being married to my husband, I’ve learned many important lessons, but there is one that seems to be one of the most valuable.

Always make time for each other.

It’s been written about in countless magazine articles and relationship books, urging parents to find time in their busy schedules to “date” each other. However, this can be easier said than done when you have a family. There are also times when we’ve both worked a long work week and didn’t feel like leaving the house. Our “date night in” usually translated into “Netflix and Pajamas” night. It was definitely time to get more creative…. [read more]

Celebrating National Snack Day With a Bang

Celebrating National Snack Day With a BANG

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Did you know that March 4th is National Snack day? I didn’t either but I’ve found some awesome snacks that I think you and your family will love. So let’s get down to the tasty goodness!

Now I have four kids ( ages six, four, two and three months), three of which are old enough to love snacks. I’m pretty sure that

“Can I have a Snack mom”??? 

is the number one thing I hear in my house every single day. So I’ll start with some of our favorites in this household.

Go Organically Fruit Snacks

Go Organically Fruit Snacks:  These are one of my kid’s favorite snacks by far! These tasty treats are USDA-certified and made with real fruit. At 70 calories each, I don’t mind giving them to my kids when they are in need of a snack.

Keeping with the fruity theme another go-to snack here is Welch’s Fruit Rolls. Did you know that fruit is the first ingredient? My kids love them and can’t get enough. I don’t feel bad sending these to school with my oldest daughter to school because I know that there is nothing in it to set off an allergy attack because she has so many allergies.

Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes

 

Another favorite here is the Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Sqeezes. These are so great, helps keep your little ones full while at home or on the go, these are perfect to just put in your diaper bag or a school lunch. They are great for breakfast for your little ones too. This perfect snack is whole grain, vegan, and gluten-free. A great choice for any time of the day for sure.

So now that we have covered kids you ask “Well what’s a good choice for me”? I’ve found some I think you’re defiantly going to like.

Sparkling Ice is your option if you want to cut out the soda. For me, its all about the fizz and this carbonated drink is a great switch. It has zero calories and zero carbs. Its got Vitamin D and B-Vitamins along with antioxidants. There are over twenty flavors, from lemonades to teas. My favorite is the Black-Raspberry!

If you’re always on the go like I am, sometimes I honestly forget to stop and eat, which isn’t great but its life as a mom sometimes. Well, Gaea Veggie Snacks are great on the go option for that busy lifestyle. They offer Pickles ( My Favorite! ) carrot and cauliflower.  They are all natural and resealable and are great on the go snack.

Carrington Farms line of Paks

Carrington Farms line of Paks is great for adding in some extra nutrition in almost any product! Mix in water, smoothies, or sprinkle over some ice cream, great for keeping you fit and full.

What tasty snack will you choose?

Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. I love it so much, that I don’t limit eating it to the early morning hours, either. Breakfast foods are delicious no matter what time of day or night it is, even the wee hours of the morning are prime breakfast eating, in my opinion.

However, some people have to be a little more careful than others about what they eat. Increasingly, I’m seeing more and more in the media about those who suffer from gluten sensitivities that cause health issues aggravated by certain food products. My sister-in-law lives with this condition and has to be careful about what she eats. Fortunately, I’ve noticed a marked increase in the gluten-free food products available at the grocery store (even in our relatively small town). The newest line of gluten-free food I’m currently trying in our home are Start Right™ Foods Belgian Waffles and Waffle Slider Breakfast Sandwiches. (Spoiler alert: This brand is going on my “good” list!) [read more]

Make Life A Bit Easier

Make Life A Bit Easier

When it comes to being a single parent, I am all for making life a bit easier for myself.

I don’t have time to mess around or waste time. I like my quiet time. I value the time I have during the week I have to work. I try to stay busy but I also make the effort to take time off from work.

I knew parenthood would be rewarding and amazing, however, being a single parent is a bit different.  I don’t have the support and help I used to have.

Tasty Teas and Treats For You

Tasty Teas and Treats for YouBeauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve always lived in the South and one thing that is always a staple in our house is tea. It’s one thing you can always count on being at the table. Your brought up almost drinking it from a bottle ( well maybe not that extream but you get the picture). So I’ve always loved trying as many types and flavors that I can get my hands on.

Growing up tea is served with every meal.
