perky fruit bodies ~ Promoting healthy Options

I am always finding ways to have healthy options in the house for my kiddos.  Perky fruit bodies is a all natural fruit snack that is one of my favorites.

We got home from a long day of school and speaking engagements.  We were all tired but had one more big thing to do.  It was my son’s night at scouting to advance and be awarded his arrow of light award and his webelos award.   I had a few perky fruit body snacks in the car and it was the perfect snack to get us going right before we headed out to his event that night.  I never feel guilty for giving us healthy snacks so I like to have them in my car. We also finished one when we got home.

One bite and you knew it was real fruit and not a processed sugar snack!!  The number 1 flavor was Strawberry Banana  …  Everyone came back for 3rd and 4th’s  and 5ths of this flavor.

Perky Fruit Bodies Gil Cohen  you have a wonderful product and what a great way to run a family business.

Meal plan Monday

meal plan monday

What’s Cooking???

Having Diabetes I have learned it’s better to plan out what my family is eating Monday.  Having a plan helps me know what I am making in advance and so I won’t be tempted to just throw together a not so healthy meal because I am in a hurry.  I don’t always get to eat what my family is eating but most of the time if I make a plan I do.  We have had Taco Sunday for years.  It is easy and I make and freeze the ground turkey in advance for 4 weeks at a time so all I have to do is defrost the meat.  I love Taco Sunday because it is a tradition now.  At least one of the nights we have have healthy breakfast burritos for dinner because again it is a easy dinner to put together.  Planning out my week on Monday has made my life so much easier.  If you don’t do this give it a try and see if it works for you.
