I just made a fresh batch of this chex mix for the girls and decided to toss in some pink and red to give it all the Valentine’s Day feels. It’s one of Mila’s favourite treats, and I think the aroma of caramel that comes from it baking is one of those smells that will create nostalgia for the girls as they get older; it’s comforting, ‘home-y’ and delicious.
Food & Drink
On Sunday afternoon, I decided to bake some bread and when I shared it in my stories, I received SO many DM’s requesting the recipe, so here it is! I actually first got this recipe from my mom’s good friend who delivered this bread to me after I had Mila. I remember taking one bite and immediately thinking “I NEED TO MAKE THIS.”
Every single time I get together with a girlfriend and ask ‘how are you?!’ the first thing that typically comes out of her mouth is ‘I’m good. Busy. But good!’ I also say this far too often, but the truth is…we are all BUSY! We’re all trying to fit a thousand things into a 24 hour period, and the rat race of the day can make it super challenging to take care of ourselves and eat well. Sometimes I’ll be heading out to a meeting, starving, but completely forgot to meal prep and well…enter the drive-thru window. It’s always a bad idea, I always feel gross after making poor meal decisions, but yet, so many of us do this.
I‘ve been making these banana pops for roughly two months now, and the girls LOVE them! They are full of potassium and antioxidants, but they truly do taste like a treat (I love them too)! Don’t worry mamas’ – these are super easy to make and I can usually whip up a batch in about 15 minutes! You can switch up the toppings depending on your flavour preference; we always use a variety of toppings like coconut flakes, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, skor pieces, sprinkles, and more!
This green smoothie has flavours of lemon, hints of basil (trust me…it’s good), and feels citrusy and fresh; perfect for Summer! If you’ve been looking for a smoothie for your morning breakfast or afternoon pick me up, try this and tell me what you think!
