Pro Bar

EAT, snacks By May 18, 2012 Tags: , , , No Comments

So yesterday I was so late getting the kids to school that I sent them each to the car with a cold pancake in their hand.  Supermom.  And now I’ve been sitting at my desk for 4 hours and have forgotten to eat again. Can you say ‘Meal Replacement Bar’?  I was recently introduced to Pro Bar and am thrilled.  Certified organic and sourced from whole ingredients like acai, oats, dates, chia and hemp seeds. They are packed with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and are also vegan.  The new ‘Fruition’ bars are gluten-free and if you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, the ‘Halo’ ‘smore bar is what you need.  Now I just have to remember to keep them in the house so the kids aren’t stuck with cold pancakes anymore.

Yogurt, Granola and Fruit Parfait

EAT, family meals, snacks By September 28, 2009 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

This one is really simple (so simple the kids can do it) and potentially super healthy. In a bowl or glass, layer or mix healthy yogurt, granola and fruit. There are organic varieties of all three available. This is a great recipe for breakfast or a snack for kids and adults alike.
