Along with all that inevitable spring cleaning and redecorating, a cleaner diet’s usually on the list as well. From healthy desserts the family will love and breakfasts on the go, to displaying photos with family heirlooms and playing games with paint chips, these blogs have you covered:
When desserts are actually healthy, everybody wins. TheseÂ Healthy Lemon SquaresÂ from Chocolate Covered Katie are looking mighty tasty right about now. Yeah, it’s really late. So what? They’re good for you.
Speaking of food, here’s aÂ Baked Banana Oatmeal Cup recipeÂ from Eating Bird FoodÂ that looks good, won’t wreck your diet, and your kids might even eat them for breakfast because they’re “dessert.” I’ve made something similar to this before, but I put in dark chocolate chips instead of raisins.
Moms on the go will love that there’s a new protein powder on the market that probably won’t make you gag (review to come),Â Perfect Fit, from the girls of the massively successful Tone It Up blog. It’s free of gluten, artificial sweeteners (it has Stevia instead), fat, dairy, lactoseâ€¦the list goes on so that it’s a “perfect fit” for everyone.
It comes in a single serving packet, so you don’t have to worry about measuring anything out when you make your smoothies in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up. I wonder if it’ll work well in a, uh, Frappuccinoâ€¦
Even if you don’t have a cute little rustic cabin to update, you may still love some of theÂ decorating ideasÂ that Morning T has to offer. That first wall could easily be a collection of family photos and heirlooms set off by a single accent color in an otherwise neutral family room, foyer, etc.
While you’re at that whole redecorating (or at least brightening up a room) thing, why not try theÂ paint chip gameÂ from Sew Fantastic? It’s a good way to put all those paint chips to use and teach the little ones a thing or two about matching colors.
