Providing a nutritious breakfast for my family is important. The girls enjoy eating a variety of foods, especially fresh berries, oatmeal, and yogurt. Which is why I aim to please when making a better-for-you breakfast that is fun, colorful and one which they can help me make. Our latest creation paired together all of their favorite breakfast foods into one – the Triple Berry Yogurt Parfait with Steel Cut Oats.
This past weekend in Miami was the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. It’s a wine and food lovers paradise. I love cooking Latin dishes, especially Cuban food – hubby loves Vaca Frita, and the kids all love a plate of Arroz Chaufa. A nice heaping plate of Arroz Imperial or Arroz con Pollo is a staple at my, and many a Latino table. In fact, rice is one of the main ingredients in so many dishes that sometimes you just need something different.
Do you think of honey as just a sweetener? Perhaps a healthier alternative to white sugar? Well, it is a good healthy sweetener, but it’s actually much more than just that. Even our pediatrician recommends we give the girls at least three teaspoons of honey a day when they are sick. Honey has many helpful properties, both when digested and when applied topically.
Prior to the creation of modern medicine, garlic had been used by various cultures for thousands of years to improve health and treat disease. Nowadays, most people just use it to add flavor to food. Fortunately, people are starting to once again become aware of the many health properties of garlic.
Today’s post is sponsored by Nestlé ®, but my family’s love for their Nesquik chocolate milk is all my own!
The girls drink milk every morning…and every night. That’s two cups a day, seven days a week – that’s A LOT of milk. Ensuring they are getting the right nutrition is my job. During the week breakfast time can be a bit rushed, which is why I enjoy the weekends. The weekends give us a lot more time and flexibility.
