The Child in Me

Don't ya love foods that remind you of your childhood?  Nothing like my mommas peanut butter and jelly on good ol' Butternut bread or or a big bowl of Peanut Butter Crunch.  Since I try to avoid white bread and sugar laden cereals in my daily eats, here are some healthified options that are kid-friendly.


Perfect for families on the go.  This breakfast sandwich is loaded with protein, fiber, healthy fats, and vitamins.  To make this beauty, smear two whole wheat waffles with all natural peanut butter and jelly, sprinkle with chia seeds and top with half of a sliced banana.  Wrap in saran wrap and eat on the run.

Where are my cereal lovers out there?  I have always been a cereal fanatic and Im currently obsessed with Barbaras Peanut Butter Puffins. This cereals stats aren't that much lower than its rival Peanut Butter Crunch but its ingredient list is much cleaner.  Hint: Reduce the amount of  the sugar even more by cutting the Puffins with a high fiber cereal.

Puffin Heaven

Now go feed one of these options to your kids or the kid in you!

    Hah, I cannot help but noticed your bio. I'm 27, recently engaged, living in the burbs (meh), and passionate about clean eating MOST of the time as well... I was searching for a more "local clean eating blog" as I follow Tosca Reno, and Jamie Eason. Glad I stumbled across yours. Happy Monday!
