Portable Breakfast Foods – Quaker Breakfast Flats

Eating breakfast every day is not something I used to do. I often found myself rushing out the door to whatever appointment I had or to get the kids to school. Some of that has rubbed off on my kids. To be honest, I hate it. I hate seeing them leave the house in the morning without breakfast. While I would love to say that we are super efficient in the morning…we aren’t. We try to be, but it just doesn’t always work out! So portable breakfast foods are a must! That’s why we like the new Quaker® Breakfast Flats. Not only are they quick and easy, but the kids like them too! <–that’s a HUGE plus!

*I received the following items for the purpose of this post. All opinions are 100% my own*

These Quaker Breakfast Flats are great, portable breakfast ideas! They come in three delicious flavors:

  • Cranberry Almond
  • Golden Raisin Cinnamon
  • Banana Honey Nut

Each breakfast flat is less than 200 calories; has 18 grams of whole grains; and 7 grams of total fat per serving! You can definitely feel good about sending your kids out the door with one of these in their hands! My son prefers the Cranberry Almond and my daughter likes the Golden Raisin Cinnamon.

Sound good to you? The Quaker Breakfast Flats can be found at grocery stores nationwide. They have a suggested retail price of $3.49 per box. One lucky winner will get a chance to win a Quaker Breakfast Flats prize pack! See below for details!

Homemade Gummy Bears

I’ve successfully given up sugar for the last 66 days. Say what? I know. It’s crazy. I am the person that used to be horribly addicted to sugar. However, since starting the Keto diet (and losing 44 lbs…go me!), I no longer crave sugar. At all. I can walk into a candy shop and not want to buy anything. Not because I am forcing myself to stick to this diet, but because I just don’t want it. However, there are those times, and I fully admit that it is purely psychological, when I feel like I want something gummy. When that happens, I make my homemade gummy bears!

Making Homemade Gummy Bears!

homemade gummy bears

The homemade gummy bear recipe is super easy. My friend Greg was the one that told me how to make them. Basically you take:

  • 1 big box of Sugar Free Jello
  • 2 packets of Knox Unflavored Gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water

3 Pack Gummy Bear silicone Molds- 150 gummy bears total +3 Droppers- BPA Free3 Pack Gummy Bear silicone Molds- 150 gummy bears total +3 Droppers- BPA Free

Put all of that into a saucepan on low heat and stir, stir stir until it is completely melted. Then pour into your favorite silicone mold (I like this moldhomemade gummy bears for the gummy bear candy), pop it into the freezer for about ten minutes and enjoy! It’s so easy!!

I ordered this particular mold because it came in a two pack AND it came with the little dropper. Let me tell you…that dropper is ESSENTIAL! Just make sure you allow the air bubbles in the dropper to go up to the top or you will end up with bubbles on your gummy bears like I have on a couple at the top!

How Did They Turn Out?

For this particular batch of homemade gummy bears, I decided to use a small package of strawberry Jello and a small package of lemon Jello to make Strawberry Lemonade homemade gummy bears! They are so good! You could totally use the one large box of Jello and make a single flavor, but coming up with different flavors is fun! Next I will be making Lemon Lime and a Fuzzy Navel homemade gummy bear (peach Jello with orange Jello)

Aren’t the homemade gummy bears cute?!? Definitely give these a try! If you are following the Keto diet, this recipe made 94 gummy bears. Using My Fitness Pal, you can totally figure out how many of the gummy bears you can eat for the amount of protein you would like. For instance, one gummy bear has 0 g Fat, 0 g Carbs and 0.3 g Protein. I just ate four gummy bears and that is 1 g Protein!

You can totally buy gummy bears at the store, if you would like…or you can make your own flavors at home using the adorable mold from Amazon!! I did read that you can make sour gummy bears by using Citric Acidhomemade gummy bears, but I haven’t tried that yet!

If your kids are like mine, then they really like gummy worms…you’re in luck! I found some really cool gummy worm molds you can pick up while you’re picking up the amazing deal on a gummy bear three pack mold!


Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

My husband and I have been following the Keto diet since January 23, 2016. We’ve lost quite a bit of weight, feel loads better (and look better too!), and we are eating way better food.One thing my family really likes is chicken. Just the other day I decided to make Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu for dinner. I was a bit unsure how it would turn out or if my family would even eat it. I quickly found that I had nothing to worry about. My daughter, who normally turns her nose up at things before trying it, took one bite and declared it delicious!

Tip…pick up this unique silicone mat to bake your chicken on. It helps crisp that chicken right up!

I’ve never made a traditional chicken cordon bleu recipe before, but I’ve eaten plenty and this, is a very easy Keto chicken cordon bleu recipe that also tastes amazing! And lets face it, with a hungry husband and two hungry kids, I want easy recipes! Lately I have been purchasing thin sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They cook so much faster and I think they taste better. For this recipe, you will want to have those thin sliced chicken breasts. Trust me!

Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

keto chicken cordon bleu

Ingredients

  • 4 Thin Sliced Chicken Breasts
  • 4 slices Ham Lunchmeat
  • 4 slices Swiss Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place your baking sheet by placing your silicone baking sheetketo chicken on top. So easy!
  2. Place a piece of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Set your thin sliced chicken breasts on the plastic wrap and fold the plastic wrap over so it covers the chicken breasts and pound them even thinner.
  3. Beat your egg and pour it into a shallow bowl. Mix your Parmesan cheese and seasonings together in another shallow bowl.
  4. Flip your chicken breast over, add the ham and Swiss cheese and roll it up. *Tip…next time I will wrap the cheese IN the ham first and place that on the chicken. I think that will help keep the cheese in better.
  5. Holding the chicken breast together, dip it into the egg wash and then roll it in the Parmesan cheese mixture. Place it, seam side down, on your baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the chicken breasts.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

What Did We Think?

This recipe will not disappoint! It is the best chicken cordon bleu recipe I have ever had!! I especially liked that it tasted good without mustard. I have a huge aversion to mustard and while I’ve eaten other chicken cordon bleu recipes, I’m always convinced I can taste the mustard (even when I really can’t). One of the nice things about the Keto diet is that casseroles and Keto go nicely together. I’ve seen a Pinterest chicken cordon bleu casserole that I have been dying to make. After seeing how well my family liked this chicken dish, I’m sure I will be able to get them to eat a baked chicken cordon bleu cassrole! I’ll be sure to write up the recipe after I make it and share it with you all.

If you are interested in changing your diet, I highly recommend you pick up the book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About Itketo chicken cordon bleu. This book is a wealth of knowledge and helps to dispel a lot of myths out there surrounding diets and the way most American’s eat.

Please let me know if you try this Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe! I would love to hear what you think and also let me know if you make any changes to the recipe!

Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to drive around in the Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring. This adorable little two-seater was so fun to drive! I will admit, I felt like I was dislocating something in my body trying to get in and out because it is so low to the ground, but by the third day, I was getting in and out like a pro! I got the car on Friday afternoon, right before I had to pick my son up from Middle School. I told him to look for the sports car in the parking lot. His face, when he walked out of the building, was priceless! We drove out of the school with him yelling out the window to all his friends, making sure EVERYONE saw who was riding in the “sweet ride”!

*I was loaned the Mazda Miata for the purpose of this post. Unfortunately I was not allowed to keep it*

mazda miata

Isn’t it cute?!? I wish I would have taken a picture of it with my 11 year old next to it. He was taller than the car! He found that very funny! The biggest thing I was surprised about with this car is the fuel economy. Now I’ve never driven a car like this before so I really had no true idea, but I really thought it would get poor gas mileage. However, the Mazda Miata gets an estimated combined city/highway mileage of 30 MPG.  There are a few other things that surprised me about this car.

  • Despite the size, there was a nice size glove compartment located between the two seats.
  • The seats were super comfortable…once you got in them!
  • The trunk size was small, but it fit an entire weeks worth of grocery bags in it.
  • The headlights are excellent! I was afraid I was going to have a hard time seeing at night…not the case at all!

All in all, I really did enjoy driving the car. It’s totally not practical for me right now with two young kids, but they got a huge kick of taking turns riding in it and getting to drive with the top down! It also comes standard with a lot of features. The safety features that I liked that it comes standard with are:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Dynamic Stability Control
  • Side-Impact Door Beams
  • Lane Departure Warning System

Be sure to check out MazdaUSA.com for more standard features than the few I highlighted above. The particular car I drove has a MSRP of $31,27.

One other thing that I would like to mention that is great about Mazda is that when they dropped this car off, they also gave me a $25 Giving Card for me to donate $25 to the charity of my choice. I ended up choosing St. Jude’s. This is part of the Mazda Giving 4 Good campaign. Great campaign!!
