I don’t know about you but sometimes it is just plain hard to get my kids to eat anything, much less vegetables. It’s like they go on a food strike and I don’t even know how they function on so few calories those days. Sometimes they love their veggies and are great eaters and other times… well, not so much, especially with my 2 year old. It’s those “not so much” times when I bust out the big guns. By “big guns” I mean lies and deception, of course (insert evil laugh). I like to trick my kids into thinking that they’re eating treats by giving them veggie muffins from Garden Lites.

So, I’ve been talking a lot about new beginnings lately and I must say that adjusting to the newness of my life these days has been more challenging than I thought it would be in some areas. I always knew that SAHM’s often don’t get a chance to eat but I thought surely I wouldn’t have that problem on my days home because my kids are more self-sufficient than babies. Wrong! I’ve actually had people at work ask me if I’ve lost weight because my face looks thinner. My response is always that I’m on the “mom diet” – being so busy with my kids that I often skip meals. However, skipping meals and snacking on junk throughout the day (my normal routine these days) isn’t a sustainable lifestyle so I’ve found some healthy snacks and a superfood meal replacement from Viance Nutrition to help keep me nourished and control my mom diet throughout my busy at-home days.

Veggies. We all need them but most of us probably don’t get enough of them in our daily diets. For us adults, it’s probably due to busy schedules and always being on-the-go. For kids, it’s most likely due to being picky eaters and/or being too busy playing to eat. I’m currently in the throes of my non-eating toddler; it’s a wonder how she can even function since she never eats. All of that said, I’m so happy to have found something that hides veggies in delicious, convenient muffins that can be eaten on-the-go! It’s a win-win for everyone!

If you’ve been following along with me for awhile, you may already know my best time-saving tip is to outsource as much as possible, within your means. I’m clearly not the only one because meal delivery services are all the rage right now. And, I can totally see why! I mean, wouldn’t it be great if you could get online, choose a few meals, and have them sent to your home, ready to cook? Well, you totally can and today I’m going to introduce you to a meal delivery service that does everything but cook the meals for you!

Have you ever been walking down the cereal aisle at the grocery store and thought to yourself, “I love this cereal! Why have I not had this in so long?” Well, that’s how I feel about Honey Bunches of Oats®. At my latest trip to the grocery store, I bought two boxes – one for us to eat for breakfast and one to use to use to make delicious treats for my family. I put a new twist on an old favorite and we love it! With just 3 ingredients, these marshmallow cereal treats are sweet and tasty! Plus, since we know I’m not very domestic, quick and easy is right up my alley!
