Power Up Your Day with Breakfast

Breakfast OPtions

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but during the week it can be challenging to make intricate meals. To make sure that we stay energized all day, we make sure to eat the most nutritious and healthy items in the morning. Here are some of favorite all-natural, healthy, nutritious finds to start your day.

Peace Cereal: For cereal we love Peace Cereal, a premiere line of non-GMO verified cereals that provides a celebration of flavor and nutrition. This includes a cereal that is packed with a combination of whole grains, fiber and protein that uses only the finest ingredients, the line delivers Peace of Mind in Every Bite. A brand this is not only good-for-you but also for the community, Peace Cereal makes a contribution to non-profit causes for every Peace Cereal product sold. One of our favorites is their new Protein Granola & Flakes where you can get 10 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving while still providing great taste. Made with a combination of whole grain oat clusters with wheat flakes, KAMUT® wheat, hemp seeds and honey, Protein Granola & Flakes is just another great example of flavor and nutrition in every bite.

Love Grown Foods: Offering a selection of all-natural, delicious and nutritional lines of cereal, oat clusters, hot oats and super oats made with navy beans, garbanzo beans and lentils.

Some favorites include the Super Oats that is packed with grains oats, chia seeds, quinoa flakes, amaranth flakes, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and flaxseed and the Power Os that is made with navy beans, garbanzo beans, and lentils! A perfect start to your day, Love Grown Food is an instant favorite in our home.

Umpqua Oats: Another oats favorite is the Umpqua Oats, a single-serve super premium oatmeal. Umpqua Oats super premium oatmeal is a quick and satisfying breakfast choice for anyone who wants a hearty, delicious and easy meal. This includes super premium oatmeal that is rich, hearty and flavorful because it’s made with custom-milled rolled oats for an appealing ‘al dente’ texture, as well as fruits and other healthy ingredients to create unique flavors.

Fruigees: We are loving this healthy, creamy fruit snack in a squeeze pack made from a combination of organic fruit and veggies juices. These on-the-go juice packs are totally vegan, has NO-ADDED SUGAR, and offers 100% of your daily value of Vitamin C. Fruigees is a fun snack that is naturally sweet, and gets the thumbs up from both kids and parents.

Postpartum Recovery Favorites

Postpartum Recovery Favorites

With all the emphasis placed on pregnancy, the postpartum period isn’t something that is generally thought about until it happens. With one-month postpartum and feeling great, here are some of my go-to staples that are helping me get back to (almost) normal.

Halo Bassinet

Rest: Well, this one is challenging and not much you can do but literally sleep when the baby sleeps. I have been trying to do this as much as possible as well as go to sleep when the baby goes to sleep for the first time at night (hello, 8pm bedtime). To help me with nursing and sleep during the day and night, I have been using the innovative HALO Swivel Sleeper Bassinet. Featuring 360 degree swivel technology, you can literally have your baby right next to you as well as use its side wall that lowers – making it easier to take care of your baby throughout the night. I also love its soothing noises including a lullaby, nature and womb sounds and vibration that gently lulls a baby back to sleep.

Bravado Designs

Wear Comfortable Nursing Bras: Ever since I delivered I have been living in the incredible line of bras from Bravado Designs. Featuring a beautiful array of functional, comfortable and stylish nursing bras, I love how easy it allows me to nurse while also wearing chic and feminine styles. This includes favorites like their new chic Elegant Embrace Nursing Bra and the super soft Confetti Nursing Bra – both of which are so lightweight, soft and stretchy. 

Cake Lingerie

With nursing, I have also been loving the CupCake Nursing Pads from Cake Lingerie. Designed to absorb everything from light-to-heavy milk flow, the non-disposable CupCake Nursing Pads are so easy-to-use and offer an effective way absorb milk throughout the day. Also, they are made with 100% organic materials including organic wicking cotton outer-layer transfers moisture to the inner cotton hemp fleece inner-layer to keep you feeling dry. This provides a pad that is thin, contoured round-shaped pads discreetly provide the perfect fit for every breast shape and size.

Eat Well: With nursing and general exhaustion I have to make sure that I am energized for the baby and the rest of my children. One of my favorite ways to start the day is by having oatmeal from Love Grown Foods. This includes a line of super gluten-free oats such as Simply Pure and Nuts and Seeds that are packed with natural protein and fiber and only made with pure ingredients such as quinoa flakes, amaranth flakes and chia. Rich in flavor, I love how these oats are unsweetened and super nutritional that give me the boost that I need to start the day.

Gold Emblem Abound

Another favorite is the healthy snack line, Gold Emblem Abound. Launched in CVS/pharmacy stores this summer, these snacks are free of all artificial preservatives and flavors and are made with wholesome ingredients that help you feel nourished and satisfied. This includes protein-rich favorites like CVS Gold Emblem Abound Walnut Halves & Pieces and CVS Gold Emblem Abound Unsalted Whole Cashews. My favorite is the CVS Gold Emblem Abound Omega-3 Trail Mix where I love enjoying a blend of walnuts, pepitas, cashews, and hazelnuts with dried cranberries and sweet raisins for the perfect sweet and savory mid-day snack.

Chocolate

For a sweet treat, I have been loving the incredible dark chocolates from HNINA. Featuring seven different flavors of chocolate, HNINA dark-chocolates are all non-GMO, pesticide-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free and kosher. This includes delicious and non-sugar options such as Almonds and Hazelnuts, Macadamias and Pistachios, Brazilian Nuts and Almonds and Coconut, Walnuts and Cashews, Seeds, Pecans and Pine Nuts and Pistachios and Hazelnut. I love enjoying this as a sweet and healthy treat after the kids go to bed that provides me with a ton of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals from the nuts and dark chocolate.

PajamaGram

Pajamas: I have been living in my PJs. Pretty much after I drop off my older daughter, I love to get comfortable and wear my Plum Paradise PJs from PajamaGram. These super comfortable and chic PJs offer new moms the ultimate in relaxation with their comfortable full-length pants and cute A-line top with a lace trim. A fantastic gift idea for a new mom or for the holidays, PajamaGram also offers PJs for men and kids with some other favorites being the Tartan Plaid Sleepshirt  and the Raspberry Plaid TJs.
