Have You Tried this New Workout Trend?

1 comment:
We've talked before about the importance of exercise, but since we've moved out to the country, I've been finding it extremely hard to squeeze in a workout. Normally, my favorite form of exercise is a brisk walk, but people drive too fast down our road, and the threat of unleashed dogs looms around every corner, making a simple walk feel like a dangerous endeavor...

What are Your Go-to After School Snacks?

1 comment:
Every day after school Grace and I have the same conversation: She tells me that she's hungry, I ask her what she wants and she replies, "I don't know what we have..."
The thing is, we have the exact same foods to snack on every day. Our go-to favorites are apples with peanut butter, sliced pears, our favorite coconut yogurt with some frozen berries tossed in or saltine crackers and slices of cheddar cheese. 
Lately, though, I'd like to surprise her by having something new to offer. I just don't know what! What kinds of snacks do your kids love?  What about you? Do you find that you offer your children the same snacks your parents offered you, or do you choose completely different types of food?

The Best Granola

No comments:
Have you ever tried making homemade granola?  I've made it a dozen times, but each batch has fallen short of my expectations. Either the oats are still a little chewy (I like them crunchy!), there's not enough raisins or the sweet/salty balance is a little off. It's so annoying, and I was about to completely give up on homemade granola, but I decided to give it one more shot, and man, am I glad that I did!
Not only is this classic granola a cinch to put together, the end results are absolutely perfect. You're gonna love it.
Here's how to make it...
