“AUTUMN IS COMING”

I have one of those kids who doesn’t like to eat breakfast. So, I have to fool her by making it cute. She’s a lot like her mother and not really a morning person, but I notice when I make her a cute breakfast it lifts her spirits, makes her smile and when the plate is colorful, (I always give her fruit in the morning.) it makes her want to eat! 

“I’m sure you’ve heard time and time again; breakfast is the most important meal of the day”

Did you know people who eat breakfast eat healthier overall?  It’s actually a great way to maintain a healthy weight. Skipping breakfast makes kids feel lethargic in the morning. Their bodies need to be refueled from the 8 to 12 hours they slept during the night. When we sleep, it’s our body’s natural detoxification time.  When you sleep, your body naturally fasts. 

Children who eat breakfast do better overall in school than children who do not. It’s important what they eat for breakfast; it’ll help your child’s attention span, concentration and memory.

Did you know that kids who eat breakfast have a lower blood cholesterol level and fewer absences in school?

I found the cutest waffle iron from Target for just $9.99

MY NEW OBSESSION!

I am allergic to chocolate, so I don’t get to eat the regular Oreos, but I am in love with carrot cake. So, no… this is not my usual nutritionist post. This is my premenstrual, I need to eat something sweet, post. 

Before the whole quarantine situation, I was in Target doing a little Easter shopping while my daughter was with my mother and I saw these little bad boys on the shelf. They were with all the Easter stuff not with the food, so I bought two bags. Went home and started eating them as we were putting the groceries away and thought to myself, “Oh my God, these are heaven.”

Long story short, a week later they went on sale, then I may have purchased another two maybe or three …and I just may have bought six packs! (They freeze well.) They’re really good if you throw them in a blender with a vanilla shake. They are really good if you use it with any ice cream, they also make a pretty good piecrust! I couldn’t find them anywhere but Target so if you happen to like carrot cake, I promise you that you won’t be disappointed! 🥕 I have to admit I’m sad this is a seasonal item and I hope they bring it back next year!
