Sometimes you just feel like snacking, and in this house, we keep a lot of healthy snacks around for when we get the munchies. Between baby carrots, healthy trail mix, and fruit snacks, we are covered, whatever our taste buds are in the mood for.
I’ve never been the “three meals a day” type, because I know people can be hungry throughout the day, and we have smaller meals with healthy snacks in between. Eating until we were full three times a day, then going hungry until the next meal, never made any sense to me, and I read that eating smaller meals more often is actually good for our blood sugar levels (no crazy highs and lows), and it works for us.
I shop once a week for groceries, at grocery stores that carry organic produce and general health-conscious food products. When my parents were growing up, everything was organic, because they grew their own food and raised their own animals. Today we have to actively look for healthier foods, so I try to buy organic, and local, as often as I can. I’m even growing my own vegetable garden now to help us always have a ready source of healthy and organic vegetables and herbs.
Finish® has a new line of products designed to be less harsh so it can be used with baby products, like Nuk. Nuk’s safe shatter-proof bowls, utensils, pacifiers and developmental cups are BPA free and dishwasher safe, so can be safely washed (on the top rack of the dishwasher) with Finish Quantum Finish Power & Free, as well as Finish Jet-Dry Power and Free, because they feature less harsh chemicals vs Finish® Quantum® base formula but with the same powerful clean to get our dishes sparkling. Since we value good health, less harsh chemicals is important to us (and since we heard the good news that a few friends are having babies, we plan to gift them with Nuk baby products to start off well).
