Cooking Healthy Meals with Kids

Cooking Healthy Meals with Kids
Ended


SocialMoms and Uncle Bens has teamed up together in honor of Ben's Beginner's Contest and requested me to share some tips with you about the importance of cooking healthy meals! You may read more about this request here!

I'm sure you agree that cooking healthy meals these days is so important to our kids health and our own health. I would love to share some tips with you all of how I manage to have my kids eating healthy and they love it!!

  1. Include Everyone:  When it's time to go grocery shopping it makes it so much more fun to include the family. First start making a grocery list together at home allowing the kids to also include the healthy foods they love to eat as well. It makes them feel like their voices are heard and respected when their included. I allow them to take turns writing the grocery list. We all hop in the car and go to the grocery store together with our list prepared.
  2. Research:  It's really helpful to look up information on the Internet about the benefits of healthy food. Take turns with the kids and research each item to see what it helps in our body. Like milk helps the bones to be strong and on.
  3. Make it Fun: With each meal prepared let the kids each take turns on choosing one of the food items they want to go with dinner for the night as long as it's a healthy item. This is where the Internet researching will come in at.
  4. Assign Tasks: Before preparing dinner make a list of the tasks that's needed to be done to prepare the meal and assign each person a task. One can season the food, one can bake it or one can be in charge of cutting it up or what ever needs to be done.
  5. Eat Together at the Dinner Table: It will be easy to have everyone sit down and eat the meal together at the dinner table since everyone all helped. Each family member can share how the meal taste and plan the next shopping trip!!
I hope these tips are helpful and please feel free to comment below with some of your tips to cooking healthy meals with kids!!

Tips for Safe Winter Driving

Tips for Safe Winter Driving

SocialMoms and Esurance has teamed up together and requested me to share some very important tips and information with you that will be helpful for winter driving! You may read more about this request here.


As a mother I always want to be cautious when I'm on the road especially when I'm driving with my family and know that others are out on the road as well. I have to be safe and responsible as a driver. I do love the winter and the snow but I'm sure we all know it could be hard dealing with some of the conditions it can bring like when it is snowing or sleeting or raining. It can be very unsafe at times but many of us has to do it to get to where were going. Most of us has to drive to work, take the kids to school, run very important erronds than't can't wait, go grocery shopping or other places we just simply can't avoid at times. These are those times that we really have to be safe. I know it can be scarey for us all but if we know what to do then it should be easier when the time comes.

I would love to share with you today a few of my tips for safe winter driving that I have learned. These tips has been such a help to me and if they have helped me I'd love to pass it on...Please add on to my tips if you would like to. We can never be to safe on the road!!

Ice:
Ice can be so slippery on car tires, sometimes it can be a small piece of ice that you can't really see get into the way and cause an accident. It's good to drive very,very slow. Drive slow with alot of space between the car in front of you. Avoid slamming on your brakes because they can skid right into another car. Try to gently stop for lights and stop signs ahead of time.

Snow:
Always drive slowly in the snow, when you slow down you can gently pump your brakes and still have space in between the car ahead of you.
Always have your car prepped ahead of time with newer windshield wipers and tires with treads that are 6/32 inch deep. Have gadgets in your car stored like a bag of sand and a shovel.

Rain:
Avoid using cruise control in the rain, being that it's incapable of recognizing different weather conditions it can cut down on your response time causing a big accident.

Walgreens Prescription Savings

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
SocialSpark and Walgreens has teamed up together and asked me to share with my readers about the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.
Many of us are in love with the convenient 24 hour drive-thru Walgreens provides especially when the locations are close to our neighborhoods saving us on gas. I love to go to Walgreens for my prescriptions,I love their customer service as well.  Walgreens tried to negotiate with Express Scripts to come up with a new contract to continue as part of it's Pharmacy Provider Network but it didn't work out. As of January 1,2012 Walgreens is no longer part of Express Scripts Pharmacy Provider Network. Unfortunately this change includes all Walgreens Pharmacies nationwide and Duane Reade Pharmacies in the New York area. Express Scripts's actions are causing disruption with no significant benefit to patients or their health plan. This change has caused many pharmacy patients to go elsewhere to use their benefits who were covered by Walgreens and Express Script. Having to change pharmacies and driving further to another pharmacy can be such a burden and cause many to be upset.
  To find out if you are effected by this change, please check the back of your prescription insurance card.  If it says Express Scripts on there, you may ask your Walgreens pharmacist if you are directly effected and how they can help you through this change. 
Walgreens is trying to help by offering a special discount on annual membership for it's Walgreens Prescription Savings Club For $10 a year a family membership will cover everyone in your immediate family,spouse,dependents under 22 and pets. Individuals may join for only $5. Join and receive discounts on your prescriptions. The Walgreens Prescription Savings Club Membership offers you savings on over 8,000 brand name and generic medications. 
For more information on these changes you may visit Walgreens at http://www.walgreens.com/pharmacy/psc/psc_overview_page.jsp 
You may also find Walgreens on Twitterand Walgreens on Facebook

Healthy Snacking Tips

Healthy Snacking Tips


SocialMoms and Snyder's of Hanover has teamed up together and asked me to share with my readers a delicious recipe including pretzels as an ingredient and my healthy snacking tips,you can read more about this request here.

A great recipe that I came across and have tried myself is the Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Crust Key Lime Pie! It's delicious and it includes Hanover's Pretzels!


 Snyder's of Hanover Pretzel Crust Key Lime Pie
Serves 8-10:
Pie Crust:
5 oz. miniature pretzels
3 T. sugar
1 stick butter, melted

Filling:
7 large egg yolks
2 (14-oz.) cans sweetened condensed milk
1 c. key lime juice (fresh or bottled)

Topping:
Coconut
Lime slice
Whipped cream, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For crust, place pretzels in a food processor and pulse until pretzels have become fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and add sugar and melted butter. Stir to combine.
Press crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie plate. Distribute evenly.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

For filling, combine egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and key lime juice. Whisk until well incorporated. Pour into cooled pie crust.

Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes. Center will still be slightly jiggly when taken out of oven and edges will JUST be beginning to brown. You don't want them to actually brown, so once you see signs of browning, remove from oven.

Cool on wire rack and then refrigerate for at least 6 hours before serving.

Garnish with a slice of lime and sprinkle coconut around edges


Whala! Your done! What a great tasting snack you will have!!Enjoy this with your family,It will make many smiles at the dinner table!!

Now for some of my healthy snacking tips:
  • Use as less sugar as possible
  • The more colorful your snacks are the best
  • When you use a smaller plate you will feel full quicker
  • Always try to stick to whole wheat products
  • Never snack after 7pm,,or 3 hours before bedtime
  • Always chew slowly
  • Drink a sip of water between each bite
I hope my tips help you,I'd love to read some more tips! Please feel free to comment with some of your tips or recipes with using Hanover Pretzels!


About Snyder’s of Hanover
Our tradition of good taste dates back to 1909 when Harry V. Warehime, founder of Hanover Canning Company, our parent company until 1980, began producing Olde Tyme Pretzels for the Hanover Pretzel Company. In 1963, the Bechtel Pretzel Company, founded by Bill and Helen Bechtel in 1947, was purchased and incorporated into Snyder’s Bakery. Bill developed the original recipe for the Sourdough Hard Pretzel that is still enjoyed by consumers today. More info on Snyder’s of Hanover

Goals to Boost My Blogging Productivity

Goals to Boost My Blogging Productivity



I have been blogging now for the past 3years and I'm just not happy with my productivity.I feel like I could be doing so much more with my blog,with so many options out there I can't seem to get it together the way I'd like it to be.One of my biggest problems is my schedule and organization.I'm all over the place bouncing, starting many projects but not finishing them then I skip to the next.I have to get focused and come up with a plan.This is where the blogging class  http://www.blogelina.com/ I participate in helps.I'm first going to have to make a list of goals for my blog and then stick to them.If I go in the order of my list of goals and finish things by the due dates I'd be on my way to boost my blogging productivity!

Here are my weekly goals I came up with:

Weekends:
Go over my blog to update it,add or delete any buttons or posts.Basically clean it up
Participate in blog hops
Clean out my email folders and catch up with emails
Do my class homework

Weekdays:
Type up at least one blog post
Do 2 things off my to do list that has deadlines
Enter 5-10 giveaways
Visit and comment on 1-3 blogs
Check out my emails
Visit and participate in 1-2 social sites

Tuesdays:
Attend Blogelina's online class

1x Per Month,usually on the 15th.
Host a giveaway hopefully for a company or myself


With these goals I really do plan to stick with them,I know with having narcolepsy sometimes it will be hard but I'm going to fight to complete my daily goals during school hours.The evenings are for my kids and housework!

Please feel free to post any of your goals - weekly,daily or monthly! However you plan to accomplish them I'd really love to read about it!
Thanks







Healthy Food Choices Round Up

Healthy Food Choices Round Up

I know many of us set out to eat more healthier for the New Year,but let's face the fact that some of us (including myself) end up on the crash diet wagon! If your like me then you love to drink those sugary drinks that are no good for you.We know it's a big "No-No"but what else is left? I hate to drink plain water,to me it just don't have any taste.However,this past week I had the opportunity to sample Hint Water,I'm so impressed with the taste!!
Hint Water is a fruit-infused,all natural essence water that contains no sugar,calories,artificial sweeteners or preservatives!! Yes,as I mentioned above I love sweet drinks so this is a great alternative for me now!

With so many flavors to choose from my favorite is the Blackberry and Raspberry-Lime,it tastes so good and it kept me very hydrated without giving up the great tasting flavor.You have to try it!!

The flavors are: Pear,Watermelon,Cucumber,Honeydew Hibiscus,Blackberry,Mango-Grapefruit,Lime,
Pomegrante-Tangerine,Raspberry-Lime,Strawberry-Kiwi

Visit: http://www.drinkhint.com/  for more information
Another great product I tried out was a USANA Nutrition Bar in the Oatmeal Raisin:
I have to say once again I was very impressed! I always loved oatmeal raisin bars but the unhealthy one's found in the cupcake isles! Well this USANA Oatmeal Bar was more tastier,it has a home-baked cookie taste that is so delicious! Can you believe it's low fat,cholesterol free and a good source of fiber?? After I ate it I did feel satisfied.
USANA Nutrition Bars are available in a variety of flavors such as the oatmeal raisin and chocolate fusion and specifically touted as a healthy heart product and offer a low-glycemic score!!
