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.
It’s time to mark your calendars! Starting March 18th, The Better Skin Co. will be available at an ULTA Beauty Store near you!
I am so honored for the opportunity to try this brand before it hits stores! I was not familiar with The Better Skin Co., so I am so thrilled to share the brand and products with all of you! Are you ready?
The Better Skin Co. Is Coming To ULTA Beauty. Are you ready?
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: 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.
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 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]
I love sushi. I could eat a Spicy Tuna Roll every single day. Just give me some spicy mayo, fresh fish and veggies, wasabi and low sodium soy sauce and I’m in my happy place. As much as I adore going out for sushi, I’ve always been curious about trying to make my own at home. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was given the chance to try Global Grub’s DIY Sushi Rolls Kit.

Candy, cookies, hot chocolate, oh my. The holiday season is officially here, which also means the season of indulging or overindulging, is also upon us. While there is nothing wrong with enjoying some sweet treats, it’s also important not to go overboard. One of the best ways to keep up or start a new healthy holiday eating habit is by incorporating more veggies into your meals.
I am a huge fan of desserts. Plunk down a piece of cake or pie, a few spoonfuls of cobbler (with vanilla ice cream on top, of course), or cheesecake down in front of me and I’m in hog heaven. Brownies are a particular favorite in my household and we make them pretty regularly.
My sister-in-law has a gluten sensitivity so my mother-in-law has started experimenting with some gluten-free types of different foods to make sure that there are options available at family get-togethers. For this fact I was really interested to come across some gluten-free brownie baking mixes from Sans Sucre™ from Bernard Food Industries. It would be great to be able to take a dessert to family functions that she didn’t have to look longingly at but take a pass on.… [read more]
