costco for kids!

We had got such great feedback from sharing our favorite healthier options at Target, we wanted to keep the conversation going with a few other stores we can’t live without! Next up, Costco! The membership fee is worth the excellent produce quality alone, but add on all of these great items and Costco becomes an absolute must for us.  1. Veggie Straws: These babies are dairy, gluten and soy free and added veggies like potato, sweet potato, carrot and spinach! 2. Dehydrated fruit packets: Bananas strawberry and apple are a great little snack for the on-the-go. 3. Whole Fruit Push-up … Read more

Then, once a week I started taking a little chunk of time to … Read more

Yogurt Dots

This Fall marks two years since we posted Frozen Yogurt Dots! That post went absolutely viral and is still one of our most popular posts all this time later. We made one grave mistake though, and that was to use artificial food coloring! We were reminded again and again (got a comment last week even) of the ill-effects of using artificial colors in cooking. We thought it was about time that we re-made this recipe with the suggestions we were offered by so many of you! So here we go, one more time! All-natural frozen yogurt dots! We used India … Read more

Dinner Winner

By Jenna. I’ve been loving our partnership with Target because after taking on clean eating, I’ve spent WAY more time in their grocery department then I ever have before. With Made to Matter, Handpicked by Target™‘s launch, I love that I can buy my regular fresh fruits and vegetables and then also have lots of healthy pre-made options to bring it all together! I suddenly feel like Target really is my one stop shop for all my family’s needs. Which has aided me so much in my goal this summer of spending more focused time with my family, and less time … Read more
