Simple Healthy Snacking…Try this instead of…

Most days, I totally feel like ordering a pizza and calling it a day when it comes to cooking…and sometimes I do!! But that’s not always the best choice for the kiddos..so I have been coming up with quick easy prep meals and snacks for the whole family…

Eating well and staying hydrated is so important..for our health..our skin..hair…and littles ones are ever growing, so introducing new foods to them is key! (Even if they don’t take to it at first.) But trust me, things will catch on and you’ll all love it and so will your body!! We all want that glow!!


“Kid Kabobs”-instead of lunchables

Toothpicks…then add veggie, fruit, cheese and serve with organic crackers and baby pickles

Blend a few fruit choices and pack with veggies and chia seeds..our favorites are mango, kale, celery, spinach, yogurt, coconut milk, juice, cucumber….don’t use too much fruit or juice so sugars are low…

Yogurt Bowls”-instead of ice cream


yogurt, berries & honey ..toppings could be coconut chips, almonds, granola..or freeze too!


Mango Matcha Green Tea”-instead of more soda


mix and make your matcha or regular green tea bag, then add fresh mango slices and honey & shake ..then add ice!

Apples and Nut Butter”-instead of chips and dip

a few pieces of dark chocolate and fruit cures a major sweet tooth when you need the fix!!!

***friendly reminder…it’s about balance..we still have busy days or weeks even!! But these kinds of things help with that and make you feel like you earned that junk food when it’s around! 

Much love,
