New Orbit For Kids Sugarfree Chewing Gum Giveaway #Orbit4Kids

-1

Are your kids always stealing your gum?  Are you concerned about the health of your kids teeth?

Orbit for Kids is here to help!  Orbit recently launched Orbit for Kids to help protect kids teeth between brushing.  How?  Chewing sugarfree gum stimulates saliva flow, which helps protect teeth and cleans the mouth of food debris.  My kids love to chew gum and don’t even know their doing something good for their teeth!

I keep a 14-tab envelope of Orbit for Kids in my purse and my kiddos keep the 10 six-tab micro Packs from the Multi-Pack bags.  They love having a pack of gum that’s just their size!

We all agree that the taste is great. LuLu is extremely particular about her gum and hates anything with a strong flavor.  Luckily, Orbit for Kids isn’t overpowering like some other gums on the market.

Look for Orbit for Kids at your local stores in these kid-friendly sugarfree flavors—new Strawberry Banana and Original Bubble Gum.

It’s all about the berries at Whole Foods right now.  Next to picking straight from the farm, Whole Foods definitely has some of the tastiest berries around!  I should know, I’ve been to just about every local store trying to find the BEST strawberries.

Whole Foods challenged me to come up with healthy and easy berry recipes.  This is a perfect challenge for me since I LOVE incorporating fresh berries into our Menu Plan during the summer.

Berry Flag

I created a Berry Flag that will be perfect for your 4th of July celebration.  I actually served this for my little man’s birthday party, so you could use this recipe or something similar for just about any occasion.  All the kids devoured the fruit – kids will eat just about anything on a stick!

Protein-Berry-Smoothie-753x1024

I also made a Berry Smoothie with kale that is perfect for hot summer days.  Smoothies are full of nutrients and fill you up without a bunch of extra calories.

Blueberry Spelt Muffin Recipe

Looking for Recipes for Blueberry Muffins?  I made amazing Blueberry Muffins with Spelt Flour that you should checkout!  They are super easy and healthy – perfect for breakfast or a snack

I still need to make Vanilla cupcakes with strawberry buttercream icing.  YUMMY!

At the end of the week I’ll post a round-up of my berry creations, so you can find ideas to take advantage of berry season in Hampton Roads.

Moms Love Mombo Nursing Pillow Review & Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I recently tested a great product, Mombo, from the Comfort and Harmony line made by Bright starts.   Mombo is a nursing pillow with many uses other than just for nursing.  Although, it is fantastic for nursing too!

The Mombo is a multipurpose pillow which can be used as a positioning aid for breastfeeding mothers, a tummy time aid for the smallest of infants and a positioning aid for babies just learning to sit up on their own.  It is for that reason, I think this pillow is a great investment when expecting a child.   It’s multi-purpose and will extend beyond just nursing.

This nursing pillow is soft and comfortable but has a layer of foam that makes it more structured than other nursing pillows i have used in the past.   In my opinion, it is more helpful when using it to nurse a newborn since you won’t have to constantly readjust the pillow.  It holds its shape and position so well that I think it’s a great tool to have when learning how to nurse in different positions with your newborn.

When I received my Mombo, I promptly used it with my 16 month old nursling who just loved laying on it, and thought it was so comfortable that he continued to lay on it well after he was done nursing!  I enjoyed the softness of the fabric on the Mombo pillow and the comfort of it forming to my body.  I think this pillow is a high quality nursing pillow that doesnt seem to wear down easily and could probably last through multiple children.

Mombo also has a plentiful array of other products within the Comfort and Harmony line, such as cart covers, bouncers and swings.  They are all available at reasonable prices and are sold at Toys R Us and some Babies R Us locations.

Overall, I loved the pillow!  It was one of my favorites, and I would recommend it to any breastfeeding mother!

Make sure to follow Comfort & Harmony on Twitter and Like Comfort & Harmony on Facebook to keep up with all the latest Mombo news.

Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal Recipe

185740_465760496794820_1870132001_a1

I picked up the new Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet which is part of the Health Starts Here Program when I did my monthly Whole Foods shopping in Virginia Beach.

The Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet is only found in-store, and I would highly recommend picking it up.  There are great recipes for every day of the week already priced to be under $15.  I already had some of the ingredients on-hand from matching sales with coupons, so I was able to make these healthy and delicious recipes for even less!!

Last week I made 2 recipes from the booklet:  Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal.  I’m also looking forward to trying a Quinoa recipe that I found on the end-cap along with the Meals for Four Under $15 Recipe Booklet.

Pineapple Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag Whole Foods Market China Cuisine Shrimp Vegetable Stir-Fry
  • 1 bag 365 Everyday Frozen Brown Rice
  • 1 Tbsp grated Ginger
  • 1 Tbsp grated garlic
  • 2 Tbsp 365 Everyday Value Low- Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 can 365 Everyday Value Pineapple Chunks
  • 2 Tbsp scallions, chopped or substitute with Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce or Bib lettuce
  • 1/2 cup Peanuts, crushed

Directions:

Defrost frozen shrimp and Asian vegetables, as well as frozen brown rice, according to package directions.  Grate ginger and garlic and whisk together with soy sauce, vinegar, pineapple juice from can, and scallions.  In a pan, add pineapple chunks and 2 Tbsp of sauce; cook until slightly brown.  Add the defrosted brown rice, shrimp and veggies.  Pour 1/2 of the remaining sauce into the pan and toss to combine. Tear lettuce into individual leaves and fill with the rice, shrimp and veggie mixture.  Top with crushed peanuts and extra sauce.  Roll and enjoy.  Serves 4.

Hubby and the kids decided we needed more shrimp in the recipe next time.  We all liked that the pineapple gave the dish a nice sweet flavor.

*Unfortunately, my pictures turned out grainy.  I’m not sure what happened with my camera that night.

Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Carrot & Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup 365 Everyday Value Steel-Cut Oats
  • 3 cups 365 Everyday Value unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 small carrots, grated
  • 1/2 small zucchini, grated
  • 4 Tbsp Raisins
  • 2 pinches of Nutmeg
  • 2 pinches of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup toasted Walnuts
  • Touch of Honey, to taste
  • Banana Slices

Directions:

Combine steel-cut oats, almond milk, carrots,zucchini, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon, walnuts and honey in a medium-size pot; simmer until liquid is adsorbed and oats are fully cooked about 20-25 minutes.  Tops with banana slices.  Serves 4.

When I went to make the oatmeal, I realized I had run out of my Whole Foods Steel-cut Oats so I substituted Irish Oats.  The vanilla flavor from the almond milk gave the dish a nice flavor that was different from other oatmeal’s I’d made.  Sneaking in the carrots and zucchini was also a huge plus since the kiddos had no clue they were getting veggies :)
