As a toddler's mommy, I'm often on the go and I have found that my healthy eating habits seem to go in the toilet when we get super busy. I find myself skipping meals because I'm in a hurry and then making up for it later when I'm starving and I binge on whatever I can get my hands on (AKA goldfish and a glass of wine, yes please). But obviously, that's not the healthiest of choices, so I have decided to give snack prep a try. I put together these weight watcher friendly snack ideas in about 20 minutes on a Sunday night and labeled them with the number of WW points. I have been enjoying them all week and even ate two of them for lunch one day when we were super busy. I feel more confident having these snacks on hand because I don't have to stress about making a healthy choice on the run. I've enjoyed these at a kiddie splash park and in the car, so they are very busy-mama friendly.
I am also trying to drink more water and stay more hydrated. It's a challenge because I'm addicted to coffee and LaCroix. I definitely do not get enough H20, but I'm trying to change that starting with this fantastic water bottle. Even my husband is a fan and he made fun of me when I bought it! It is made of glass but has a very protective rubbery cover that protects it from breaking quite well. I have already dropped it once, so I know. But, the best part is that the water tastes better than it does in those plastic bottles. I know it sounds gimmicky, but do you trust me or what?! I swear! And I hear that if you add some fruit slices, you can really kick it up a notch, but I might just be too lazy for that.
