It's been in the 90's for days now here in upstate NY.   A fun and easy way to cool down are with these 3 Ingredient Frozen Yogurt Bars.  I mean who doesn't love frozen treats! 

The flavor combination is endless...blueberry, strawberry, coconut, vanilla, keylime pie, peach, cherry, banana strawberry, the list goes on and on.  All you need is your favorite yogurt, some toppings and 1 hour in the freezer!

Here's what I used for my 4th of July inspired 3 Ingredient Frozen Yogurt Bars

*6oz container of blueberry yogurt

*6oz container of strawberry yogurt

*6oz container of vanilla yogurt

*fresh blue berries (can use frozen as well)

*fresh strawberries (can use frozen as well)

*chocolate chips

I couldn't resist sharing my Mother's Day gift from one of my daughters😍 breakfast in bed made from Buckwheat Grouts.

Happy Mother's Day!!!💐

Do you love the taste of apple pie and wish you could have a piece everyday?  Why not try making an Apple Pie Yogurt Parfait.  Perfect for the afternoon slump at work, as a snack for when the kids get home from school or even as dessert!

Can you believe it’s fall already?  The kids are back into their school routine and fall sports are under way.  Strange thing, the weather in upstate NY has not resembled a typical fall pattern and it’s been HOT, like your glad you didn’t close the pool yet type hot.  I’m not complaining, my peppers and cherry tomatoes plants are thriving  :>) 

With the crazy heat wave, one of the ways I have been trying to keep my kids hydrated while they are in school is packing watermelon as one of their snacks.  Just one cup of watermelon contains over 90% water, 11 grams of natural sugars and 2 grams of sodium.  All the ingredients needed for a natural electrolyte to keep them hydrated.  Plus, it is a great source of potassium and Vitamin C to help aid in preventing cramps and promotes healing.      

Last weekend, I made what I called "Watermelon Slushies" for my daughter’s softball team as a natural hydration drink.  Just as our kids are out on the...

Not crazy about oatmeal, but want breakfast to add to your morning routine? 

Try indulging in the nutty flavors of quinoa with maple syrup and plump cherries in the morning!

Quinoa is a whole grain pseudocereal with all nine essential amino acids making it a complete protein.  Each cup of dry quinoa contains 4.5 grams of fiber.  Plus, maple syrup provides a great source of Zinc, Magnesium and Potassium, and who doesn't love maple syrup? 

IRON SOURCE

Quinoa seeds come in a variety of colors like white to grey, black, yellow and red.  Each variety contains a high bio-availability of plant based non-heme iron.  This means our bodies are able to absorb a higher amount of the iron.  Just one serving contains over half of the Recommended Daily Allowance for iron.

FLAVONOID SHOW OFFS

Quinoa has a higher amount of flavonoids compared to other common cereals.  According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United States, a half of cup of uncooked quinoa contains 58% of...
