For weeks, Sarah has been begging me to set up a play date with her new friends from 1st grade. But with busy schedules and the long winter it was hard setting up a time where we can meet at a neutral place aka the park and get to know the moms. Now that the weather is warmer, we’ve been spending a lot of time at the park after school. One afternoon a few of the mamas and I got together for a little picnic at the park. My favorite food to bring to a picnic is dips and chips.

Every week I have the daunting task to come up with a meal plan for my family. It’s not my favorite, but feeding my family good, protein packed, nutritious meals is my favorite. The other day we had unexpected plans so I ran into to the store to look for an easy meal in the freezer aisle. I came across the burrito aisle and decided to check out Alpha Burritos.Alpha Burritos are available in four delicious, plant-based flavors: Mexicali, Fajita Chick’n, Philly Sandwich, and Pizza.
My store had Mexicali, Pizza and Philly Sandwich.

When we got our assigned date to bring snack at Mommy and Me I looked at the calendar and realized it was only a few days before Jacob’s birthday AND Passover. I knew I wanted to celebrate his birthday at school, but with all the Passover restrictions it made things a bit difficult. After walking around with my little man around the grocery store I figured out our plan. I bought a box of Passover muffins, string cheese and Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches.With Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches you can snack with confidence thanks to the new transparent packaging and design that allows you to see into the pouch before eating it.Another added bonus was that Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches contains no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial flavors or colors. Perfect for Passover and year round!Loved being able to celebrate my little man birthday at mommy and me with food I know is good for him and that he loves!Did you know? Tree Top saves almost 600 million pounds of ugly apples each year from being wasted. Where to purchase?

After my Whole30 cycle I’m on a mission to only eat food that makes me feel good. However there are times when you just want to snack. Luckily after some research I found MadeGood Granola Bars. They’re made from whole grains, are low in sugar, and have a taste that my family loves! MadeGood Granola Bars and Minis come in 5 delicious flavors: Chocolate Chip, Mixed Berry, Chocolate Banana, Apple Cinnamon, and Strawberry. My favorite flavor is the mixed berry.MadeGood Granola Bars and Minis are organic, school safe, and contain the nutrients found in one serving of vegetables. These delicious bars contain veggies from six different sources: spinach, broccoli, carrot, tomato, beet, and shiitake mushrooms.
All products are made in a dedicated nut free facility and are free from the 8 common allergens (peanut, tree nuts, wheat & gluten, soy, dairy, egg, sesame, fish & shellfish).
MadeGood Granola Bars are vegan, kosher, contain ONLY 6 grams of sugar, and are 90 calories each.
A 6-bar box retails for $4.99.
To test the bars out I brought it to mommy and me class a couple weeks ago. We tried Chocolate Chip and Mixed Berry. Both moms and kids loved them! Where to purchase
MadeGood Granola Bars are available to purchase at Kroger, Whole Foods Market and Amazon. To find a store near you, click here.

On the weekends, my family and I look forward to relaxing, hanging out in our pj’s and eating a big breakfast together. Sometimes it’s waffles, pancakes, or maybe even a breakfast casserole.
To change it up a bit hubby through in some food dye in his pancake batter and surprised the kids with colorful pancakes. The kids squealed with excitement and asked to do it again!
But after breakfast I had an icky feeling that we ingested a whole bunch of unnecessary food dye.
As I was searching for different alternatives, I came across Color Garden.
We separated the batter into 4 bowls. My sous chef, Sarah, added the individual color packets into the bowls. My two year old wanted to help too!I love when I can make cooking a family event.All the colors are mixed in and ready to cook. So fun! The kids loved all the bright colors and mama was happy we weren’t eating chemicals. Win win! We sat down for breakfast, drizzled some maple syrup and enjoyed our morning together. Even though this was an activity for the kids, this mama enjoyed her pancakes (and coffee) too!Each individual packet delivers enough color for one medium-sized cake or approximately 16oz of frosting.
Color Garden’s pure natural food color includes NO artificial ingredients.
It’s made with 100% plant based food colors!
Blue = Red cabbage
Orange and Red = Beet Juice, Turmeric, Annatto
Yellow = Turmeric
