A favorite breakfast food in our house has always been cereal. It’s an easy meal and perfect for the days when we just need something quick. I am always trying to find a cereals that the whole family enjoys and that is ‘good-for-you’. The latest addition to our cereals is the new Honey Bunches of Oat Greek Honey Crunch.

DOLE Parfait Review #DoleParfaitEscape

I am guilty of skipping breakfast or lunch some days. Normally, I am frantically making my kids meals and while they are eating, I take that time to switch the dishes out of the dishwasher and clean up the kitchen. Then, within an hour or two, my stomach expresses it’s dissatisfaction with my poor eating habits and I just grab a quick little snack. That snack isn’t always a healthy choice. As I have been trying to change my eating my eating habits and decrease my junk food intake, I find myself trying to find a sweet taste with less of the guilt.

Coffee has always been one of my favorite beverages. Not a day goes by where I don’t enjoy at least one cup. When I think of coffee, I always think of Starbucks. If I am out running errands, I cannot resist driving through a Starbucks drive-thru for a fresh cup of deliciousness. When it comes to drinking coffee at home, I still can depend on Starbucks to get me through the day.

Winding Down with College Hoops and Kettle Chips #KettleMadness #CBias

The month of March brings a lot of great things around my house. My husband gets a year older, spring begins, barbecues start back up and college basketball tournaments are always on.  We like to host gatherings at our house almost weekly to watch games, barbecue, snack, play cards and relax. Sometimes our gatherings aren’t planned and end up being last minute with people showing up at the house with little notice. For that reason, I always keep easy snack foods in stock, especially chips.

When you think of the brand Green Giant, what do you think of? The first thing that comes to my mind is vegetables and side dishes. But Green Giant has a very giant surprise. They have a new product that is unlike their other product lines. It is a delicious healthy snack made with vegetables but you won’t find in the vegetable or frozen food aisles. They have introduced the new Veggie Snack Chips.

Recently, you may have noticed a pattern in my articles regarding my desire to eat healthier. It has not just stemmed as a New Years Resolution, but as my inclination to keep the recently shredded pounds/baby weight off. Sometimes, when I find companies that offer great foods that are also good for me, it really makes my health-eating easier. Two brands I have been using lately include Jennie-O Turkey Store and Wholly Guacamole.

International Delight Light Iced Coffee #LightIcedCoffee #CBias

It’s no secret, I am a lover of coffee. Not a day goes by that I don’t drink at least two cups. One of my favorite coffee drinks is iced coffee. However, I don’t drink it as much as I would like because at a coffee shop it is too expensive to purchase daily and I don’t have time to make my own at my house. To enjoy iced coffee at home, I found that drinking International Delight Iced Coffee was my answer. But I had a dilemma. I have just about lost all my baby weight (yay!) and I am really starting to watch my sugar and calorie intake. I was dreading the thought of fewer iced coffees in my life. How would I get through my hectic day without that one indulgent drink that puts a smile on my face?  Fortunately, International Delight heard my plea and is introducing their New Light Iced Coffee.
