Last week, in Challenge Week #1, I took it upon myself to be more mindful of using leftovers as a way to save money and uh, why waste right? I did a great job! I created a loaded frittata, salads, Chicken Cordon Bleu Buttermilk Biscuits and made some pizza using leftovers as well (A BBQ chicken).
For Week 2, the challenge is to create a healthy snack using at least one organic ingredient. Now, sometimes it’s tricky getting kids to eat healthy snacks, but I know all you moms out there are capable of some very creative solutions.
Here are some of my favorites from the past that my kids love:
Beach Eats Snack Mix (organic cereals & raisins)
Popcorn Trail Mix (hello popcorn!)
Strawberry, Banana & Orange Yogurt Smoothie using organic frozen fruit
Roasted Panko Potato Wedges (with organic russet potatoes)
