I’m all about streamlining the morning get-ready-for-school process. With three kids and a husband who all insist they are absolutely starving the second they get out of bed, I spend time searching for a breakfast that would be easy to prepare and more filing than a bowl of cold cereal. The answer, Bombshells, is organic breakfast bakes.
Step aside, chocolate and vanilla. This banana-mango combo makes a sweet, dreamy shake that delights with tropical taste and fruity nutrition. Fiber superstars, bananas and mangos fill you up while packing in plenty of potassium and vitamin B6. Pre-freeze chunks and you’ll get a thick, frosty texture without having to add ice.
How many little plastic tubs of yogurt do your kids eat every week? Three? Five? More? While certainly convenient—and nutritious—the packaging is wasteful (if you don’t rinse and recycle), and you may encounter unwanted ingredients, especially if they’ve convinced you to buy one of the fun, colorful varieties they saw in that “cool” TV commercial. An easy solution is to simply make your own. I say simply because it really is easy to do!
Whether you’re trying to get something healthy into your kids’ bellies before they dash out the door to catch the school bus, or you’re attempting to feed your baby/pack his bag for daycare/take a conference call/flat-iron your hair all at the same time, one thing is certain: if you’re a mom, you need a few super-quick, healthy breakfast ideas in your back pocket.
That’s a wrap! End dieting frustration with a fruit-stuffed, protein-packed breakfast made with this season’s star berries. But before you break out the whole-wheat tortillas, take a peek at the ingredients list. The crepe-like blanket snuggling all that sweetness isn’t made from flour. Fluffy, flavorful and diet-friendly, it’s a combination of low-fat, high-energy morning favorites whisked and baked in a creative way.
Here’s some news that won’t make you feel blue: July is National Blueberry Month! And that’s berry good news for those of us seeking reasons to share the health benefits of blueberries. An entire cup of blueberries has just 85 calories, and that cupful is overflowing with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber.
It’s an appliance that’s been making life in the kitchen easier (and healthier!) since 1922—so how is it you still don’t own a blender? This handy tool, invented for milkshake-making back in the old soda shop days, can chop, purée or liquefy fresh fruits, veggies, nuts and other foods for delicious, nutritious meals in minutes. Think: breakfast smoothies, homemade nut butters, creamy sauces, savory soups.
