Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

0

The first time I heard of chia seed pudding, I was at the local Le Pain Quotidien. It was presented in this cute little mason jar with berries and was incredibly delicious and incredibly expensive. I can’t remember how much it was — I think it was either $6 or $9 — but I remember that it was more than I would’ve wanted to pay. I researched recipes online and found Giada De Laurentiis recipe from Food Network and played around with it until I found a recipe that I enjoyed. It is SO incredibly easy and quick and something…

Healthy Yogurt and Fruit Smoothie with Chia Seeds

0

For the past several months, my husband and I have been making our own healthy smoothies in the morning. It’s really quite easy, and I’m sure you have the ingredients in your refrigerator already. The new addition that I’ve added to my yogurt and fruit smoothies are chia seeds. My base ingredients for my yogurt and fruit smoothie are Almond Milk, Stonyfield Greek Yogurt, and a mixture of frozen berries and fruit. I usually do a mixture of rasberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and bananas, depending on what looks good at the store. I keep a container of frozen fruit in…

They completely obsess over everything they put into their organic yogurt, frozen yogurt and smoothies (my girls’ favorite!) There aren’t any toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs We eat yogurt anytime during the day — in fact here is when we eat yogurt: 1. For a quick, healthy breakfast; 2. As a great side-snack in the girls’ school lunch;…

Healthy Kids Snack: Apple and Peanut Butter “Cookies’

1

When my girls come off the camp bus at 5 p.m., they are so hungry, but because it is so close to dinner time, I tend to put out healthy kid’s snacks like carrots and humus, grapes, and cherries. Another snack favorite is the very easily made Apple and Peanut Butter “Cookies”: 1) Thinly sliced whole apples 2) Peanut butter frosting (or you can use any nut spread) 3) If it’s not too close to dinner and at snack time, we let our girls put on some sprinkles for a cookie effect. And that’s it! I’d love to add to…

We just got a pantry put into our kitchen, which means I now have the room to buy lots and lots of snacks for the family.

Did you know that the average American uses up 25% of their calories on snacking? So, if you fill up those calories (and pantry shelves) with something healthy instead of junk, just maybe you can make some great changes to your family’s diet. That’s where NatureBox comes in. NatureBox is…
