National Waffle Day with Van’s Foods #Giveaway

Sample sent for feature

Vans R logo

Wednesday August 24th is National Waffle Day and we are celebrating with Van’s Foods. Also celebrating with Van’s Foods is Joy Bauer, Registered Dietician. Joy was featured on the Today Show and she is helping bust Mom’s tackle the hectic morning routine. She has a great selection of three 5-minute waffle recipes.

Joy’s Morning Hacks

  1. Keep a stable of go-to items in your pantry and refrigerator to provide nutritious, quick options. Low-fat Greek yogurt, eggs, nut butters, berries, bananas and grapes are all great on top of Van’s 8 Whole Grains waffles—super easy, kid-friendly and filling.
  2. Think ahead. If you plan breakfast the night before, you’ll eliminate 50 percent of the stress during the morning rush. No one expects moms to whip up from-scratch waffles or pancakes on a chaotic weekday—keep it simple, decide what you’re serving the night before, and you can spend less than five minutes on a filling, wholesome, delicious breakfast in the a.m.
  3. Presentation is important. Anything that says “fun” is appealing for younger kids. If you take a Vans whole grain waffle and use good-for-you ingredients to create a happy face on top, you’ll have happy eaters. Kids can help with assembly—let them choose their toppings or match their waffle face to their mood. You can use blueberries for eyes and raspberries, cherries or a kiwi slice for a mouth. You’ll be smiling, too, as you watch how quickly they gobble it up!
  4. Make your morning meal a triple threat. Since parents tend to have full control over what their kids eat for breakfast, it’s important to make it count. The winning combination includes ample fiber and protein, while minimizing sugar. That helps stabilize blood sugar and provides fuel and sustenance to make it through the morning routine.
  5. Plan “me” time.  Be strategic and sneak some breaks while parenting— whether that means a walk with a sleeping child in a stroller or timing kids’ screen time to coincide with your workout. Every mom knows that a little “me” time makes you a better parent!




The Giveaway- 1 lucky reader will win a Van’s Foods Package. Open to US and ends on 8/31. Enter below

3 Delicious Ways To Get Protein Into Your Morning Diet #Giveaway

Samples provided by Orgain for feature

The plan to survive back to school should include a few factors. I have one boy off to College across state and an 8 year old entering 3rd grade. My youngest is also into sports year round. I also work in his district at the High School and am on the PTA board. Given that, I am off all summer so the transition to back to school is a rough one for us. I’m suddenly off all work and volunteering all summer and my son is out of school. In September it all just starts back up from rest to work.
Orgain has committed to bringing us a very important element into our morning routine-adding protein to the start of our day for the entire family. Orgain even helps further by offering 5 Back to School Survival tips
  1. Include Protein in Your Breakfast Within 30 Minutes of Waking Up– this reduces carb cravings and boosts your metabolism to start your day off right
  2. Consolidate Your Morning Routine– products that multi-task can save us time and money. With Orgain Cold Brew Coffee + Protein you can get the morning caffeine with your protein
  3. Let Kids Drink Their Breakfast– kids lagging some mornings? Hand them a shake for breakfast. The Orgain Healthy Kids shakes are packed with all they need to start their busy day
  4. Don’t Get Hungry– carry protein bars around with you. Protein staves off hunger and gives you lasting energy
  5. Eat One Meal Together– dinner together is an obvious concept but sometimes hard to do. Each day find the best meal to sit down together for and take that time to reflect on the day
Orgain has many protein options and 3 of my favorite are great ways to get delicious and healthy protein into your morning diet. My favorite is the Orgain Cold Brew Coffee + Protein Iced Mocha and Iced Coffee variety. It is so delicious and very filling. You will not feel like you still need that coffee shop mocha due to how full you start your day off after finishing the drink.
Orgain Organic Nutrition Complete Protein Shakes have an16 grams of protein. You have 4 flavor choices-creamy chocolate fudge, sweet vanilla, strawberries & cream and iced cafe mocha. These shakes also start you off with 23 vitamins and minerals in an organic fruit and veggie blend that is naturally delicious. For the kids, the Orgain Healthy Kids Organic Nutritional Shakes come in 3 flavors-chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. They start their day off with 8 grams of organic protein and 23 vitamins and minerals. It’s a great breakfast to hand them when running behind in the morning.
Don’t want to drink your protein? A third way to get that healthy start is with the Orgain Organic Protein Plant Based Bar. They come in 4 flavors- peanut butter, peanut butter and chocolate chunk, chocolate chip cookie dough and s’mores. These bars are great for breakfast, lunch or filling snack and bring you about 10 grams of organic plant-based protein and are 100% vegan, gluten-free and Non-GMO. They are 140 calories and only contain 4 grams of sugar.
So get that healthy start and feel the difference. Find Orgain at a store near you while back to school shopping. And don’t forget to add them to you college care packages for your older student throughout the year.Giveaway
