Review: Salba Chia Seeds

School has started for me and my daughter!   I think many of you know I am a teacher so getting back into a routine can have it's challenges for this mamma.  I also just found out that I have low iron so I am trying to find many new ways to increase my iron but also my energy levels.   Chia seeds is a great way to help increase energy without icky junk in your body.   

Healthy Back to School tips from Salba Chia:
·         Eat a nutritious breakfast every day. Studies show that breakfast eaters tend to have higher school attendance, less tardiness, overall higher test scores and better concentration, according to Try delicious breakfast ideas at
·         Pack rainbow-colored lunches: Cut up a mix of red, green, yellow, orange and purple fruits and veggies to dip into hummus mixed with chia seeds for an extra boost of nutrients.
·         Power up with a healthy snack before after-school activities: Make fiber-rich Salba Chia fruit smoothies or get ideas from other moms at

Kids aren’t the only ones who need to feel their best when school starts – their parents have to keep up with them! 

Here’s a little bit more about Salba Chia seeds:
·         Provide 3,400+ mg of Omega-3s (ALA) and 5,000+ mg of dietary fiber per serving

·         25% more fiber than flax seed
·         All-natural, gluten-free, non-GMO
·         **Unlike other chia seeds, Salba Chia is the only form of chia for which there are positive published clinical studies.

My Review:
I am a fan!   Yes, I truly am and these tiny seeds are so easy to hide in meals that my children have absolutely now clue that they are in their food!   So where have I been adding them:  smoothies, rice, veggies, oatmeal, and my favorite pancakes.   My kids love when I make my 3 ingredient pancakes (4 with the Chia) and adding the Chia seeds are a great boost for all of our health.  

Here is my pancake recipe:
In a blender add 2 bananas, 6 eggs, and roughly 2 cups of oatmeal and 2 tablespoons of the chia seeds.   Blend it up to the right consistency and put it on the pan.   My kids have no idea the chia seeds are in because everything blends so nice and their is not much of a taste.   My kids enjoy eating their pancakes with peanut butter and a little syrup drizzle.   YES, these are amazing an addicting.    

You should buy some today and starting finding ways to add them to your meals!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
