Daily Diet

After posting TIP #1, I thought that I would show you what Mama K's daily diet consists of. I too am on the path of striving to live a healthy life style. Here are SOME of my favorite staples that my family eats almost every day! (Granted my three 6 month old boys are still eating baby food, but not for long!)

**OATMEAL: I always buy plain oatmeal and then add my own mix-ins (it's cheaper and healthier too!). Some of my favorite mis-in's include: cinnamon, 2 Tbsp. GoLean Crunch, milk, Agave Nectar, or even frozen berries!

**DAIRY: I am a firm believer that your body NEEDS the 5 FOOD GROUPS everyday! This is one food group that I could not live without. I LOVE milk (soy or cow's), eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, and string cheese! A goal of mine is to try and buy organic dairy as much as possible.

**VEGGIES & FRUIT: The best snacks of all! I love to peel carrots (I buy them whole because they are much cheaper and more tasty in my opinion.) and eat them whole! I eat a banana every morning, along with my oatmeal. I love an apple in the afternoon for a snack. Another snack I like is to heat up 1/2 cup of frozen peas in the microwave and add some pepper and 1/2 cup of cottage cheese.

**Favorite brand: KASHI!!!  I love everything KASHI! If you haven't tried it, you should. I love Kashi cereals, granola bars, crackers, and cookies. If you ever want a CARB fix and you are in a rush, choose something Kashi. It's tasty, made from HEALTHY ingredients, and filling!

**WATER: I know we hear this over and over again, but it's true OUR BODIES NEED LOTS OF WATER! So drink up! It's free and refreshing!

What are you & your family eating/snacking on that's nutritious?

I love all of your food ideas! Owen loves to eat homemade sweet potato fries. Because they are homemade, I am able to make them HEALTHY and not fried or packed with salt. The sweet potatoes are filling and yummy. He devours them! They are also a great snack to carry in my purse when we are out and about.
