Kid Friendly Foods with Whole Foods Market {Giveaway!}

What is the number one goal for our lunches these days? EASY! With the boys home everyday with school we juggle their studies, my work, plus the everyday house duties that call. Maybe I should plan our meals weekly like I do with dinner, but like I said I just find the easiest solution that day.

Annie's Homegrown

Ask this guy what he wants for lunch and he’ll say Annie’s Homegrown Organic Mac and Cheese. Every.Single.Day. No joke. Was he stoked to see a box in our latest Whole Foods delivery? Yes he was! We had never seen this flavor before. Not only is it Organic Grass Fed, but it is made with the organic cheese Rumiano! We love Rumiano which we buy from Whole Foods! Nice.

Muir Glen Organic Tomatoes

Bagel Pizzas is one of favorites and Muir Glen’s Organic Tomatoes made it even yummier. Did you know their tomatoes are harvested at the peak of ripeness and delivered to the processing facility within hours of picking and triple washed to guarantee no cleaning agents are present? Wish more companies were this dedicated! Try the Fire Roasted which are roasted over open flames.

For a snack we’ve been munching on non-GMO Terra Real Vegetable Chips. Now we are a potato chip family and I do try to find the best. I don’t think I’ve ever had vegetable chips before so I was excited to try them! We had Hertiage Blend and Beauregard Sweets and each flavor are made with vegetable varities that are part of the Seed Savers Exchange, a nonprofit dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds and plants. Puppy liked them too!

Greyston Bakery Cookie Tin

Last but not least, we need a dessert or something sweet(er). Greyston Bakery Cookie Tin hits the spot and P’Diddy would have eaten this whole carton if I would have let him. Buttery cookie thins in Traditional Sugar, Chocolate Chip, Ginger and Chocolate Fudge Brownie they definitely hit the spot. I don’t want to forget to tell you that they are made with Fair Trade sugar and cocoa and part of the sales goes to Whole Planet Foundation.

Check out our other goodies too ~

Tiny But Mighty Heirloom Microwaveable Popcorn non-GMO popcorn with kernals half the size and avilable in Butter, Light Butter and Kettle Corn. It comes in popped bags too!

Cocomels Organic Caramels Giveaway

It is caramel heaven around here thanks to Cocomels my new favorite treat. Yes, you saw the title – Organic Caramels. You want some before you even read further!

Cocomels

There honestly isn’t much to say except YUMMMMMMMY! I’m popping these babies in my mouth without even thinking about it. With my morning coffee, my afternoon snack, or my after dinner treat. Any excuse I can think of I eat one.

I want to tell you that these are heathier than regular caramels. Yes healthier because of the benefits of coconut oil instead of dairy fat. In fact, I’ll give you all of the ingredients so you can decide for yourself –

Ingredients: organic coconut milk (organic coconut milk, xanthan gum), organic brown rice syrup, organic evaporated cane juice, sea salt.

Cocomels are also Vegan, Gluten Free, Corn Syrup Free, Soy Free, and Non-GMO.

Who needs some in their stocking this year?! Choose Original, Vanilla, Espresso or Sea Salt.

They also have a new product – Chocolate Covered Cocomels – and if they knew me like you know me I’m sure they would have sent a sample because I am headed to the store to grab some. I have to try them, right?!

Buy Cocomels online or try your favorite health food store like Whole Foods.

Did I tell you they are local to me too?

Real Kid Shades Polarized Sunglasses Giveaway

Since I chat about the importance of eyecare and polarized sunglasses on the blog every once in awhile, I had a friend approach me with a question not to long ago. She asked if I knew where to buy affordable children’s polarized sunglasses since I always reviewed adults. Unfortunately I said no I didn’t, but I am happy that report that has changed!

Not only have a found a FABULOUS variety of sunglasses for the little ones, I have found them at a GREAT price!

C’Man is sporting the Blaze style

Real Kid Shades is offering $10 off all polarized sunglasses and Free shipping on ALL orders through January 2nd. The sale price is now $19.95!

Why Polarized some of you may be asking?

The #1 reason is to eliminate glare. They contain a special filter that that blocks reflective light. This increases visual clarity so that you may see true colors and will reduce your eye strain.

I know that I will never buy a pair of sunglasses for myself that are not polarized. Why shouldn’t that be true for my boys too?

O'Bear has been bugging me for ages for COOL sunglasses and now he is in 7th heaven with the Blade.

As you can see from my photos, we headed up to a ski lodge one day. We haven’t skiied yet, but let me tell you that their sunglasses will be perfect for the snow glare. They are so excited to learn this new sport! They will be Snow Bums, instead of BeachBums now. ;)

Is wearing the Bolt style though we love the Explorer with strap so may be getting another!

Is wearing the Bolt style though we also love the Explorer with head strap so they don’t easily fall off. We may be getting another because I don’t think we can have too many pairs!
