Planning on easier back to school mornings, snacks and dinners with Kashi

tlc We received our Kindergartner’s bus schedule yesterday. Sending him to Kindergarten doesn’t bother me. The bus isn’t worrying me. What terrifies me is that I’m going to have to get 3 kids and me dressed, packed, ready and fed (including one of them breastfed) all before a time we’re used to. And while I’d love to feed everyone a 5-course meal with all the necessary vitamins, I know me, and I know its not going to happen.

What is going to happen, though, is that they’ll be eating lots of cereal and snack bars for breakfast, because they’re yummy. And, thank goodness, easy and healthy. We’ve always been a fan of GOLEAN Crunch! (the boys love the crunch) and we recently sampled GOLEAN Crunch! with Honey Almond Flax (which I enjoyed as a good, healthy alternative). But the boys were so hooked on the Baked Apple Spice Cereal Bars I’ve had to restock my pantry several times since the samples came. This is the cereal bar they’re likely to eat every day before school this fall.

At snack time, they sampled a few of the GOLEAN Snack bars, including Peanut Butter & Chocolate which got a “Mommy, this is MUCH yummy” compliment and the TLC Chewy Bar received a “oooh! I like this one!” I tried the GOLEAN Crunchy Bar in Cinnamon Coffee Cake and quickly added it to my grocery list as well–a mom needs to snack when she’s breastfeeding.

For dinners this fall, because I don’t expect to be running a 5 star restaurant any time soon, I’m very happy with Kashi’s 7 Whole Grain Pilaf sides. They’re simple to make — just heat up and serve (only 60 seconds in the microwave).  My fave is Fiery Fiesta.

Want to try some?  Of course you can find Kashi products at your grocery store, but don’t head over there without a coupon. Click here and save $1.50 off one of their high fiber cereals.
