DISCLOSURE: I was provided with complimentary products to facilitate this post, however all opinions are my own and not swayed by any products received.
In a typical day, I... fix breakfast, wash clothes, find lost socks, answer emails, write posts, fold clothes, find another lost item, tend to minor medical "issues", feed kids lunch, take out the trash, drive eldest to work, decide what to cook and cook supper, load dish washer, bathe the little one, fold another load of clothes, fight with the little one to go to sleep, go pick the eldest up from work, sit in my comfy chair for all of ten minutes, then go to bed. With all the stuff I have to accomplish on a daily basis, it's no wonder why I often forget to do stuff... like eat. Well, eat well anyways. I often catch myself snacking on Micah's leftover breakfast or a sandwich I threw together in between the million other things I do during the day.
I used to buy the pre-prepared, crappy, processed, convenience foods that we all fall into the trap of buying from time to time, but once I educated myself on all the nasty stuff in those "convenience" foods, I quickly decided the "convenience" was not worth the possible damage it could do to myself and my family, so I now make a conscious effort to make better food choices. Lucky for me, the food companies are starting to follow suit, by cutting out the nasty high fructose corn syrup and all the junk that steers us away from buying, all the while, keeping the convenience we all want.
My recent favorites are these awesome new products from Del Monte.
Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers contain no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup and are made in the U.S.A. ... Score! There are two varieties of the fruit and veggie squeezers, peach-mango & blueberry and three varieties of the fruit only squeezers, apple-cinnamon, mixed berry & strawberry. Each convenient pouch contains 1 ½ servings of fruit or fruit and veggies and are an excellent source of vitamins A and C and for those who don't like the pureed consistency, there's the new mango and pineapple fruit cups.
Del Monte® Mango Pineapple Fruit Cup® Snacks combine two of the world’s most popular fruits: mango and pineapple. Made with rich and luscious mangos and pineapple, they contain no high fructose corn syrup and are a rich source of vitamin C and can be found at your local Walmart store.
My family gobbled up these new goodies from Del Monte and I have a feeling yours will too, but you don't have to take my word for it.
