Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣
⁣
Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣
⁣
Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣
⁣
And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Today is actually “Dance Like a Chicken Day”. I had plans to dress Super Dad in a chicken costume and make him dance, but spending $50 on a chicken costume didn’t seem like the smartest financial decision, considering the circumstances. ⁣

Learning About the Importance of Fiber with the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge

This post was sponsored by Metamucil as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

 

 

As many of you may know, I started making choices that would lead me to a healthier lifestyle in December of last year.  I cut out meat, some dairy and sugar, and thought I was on the road to a new, healthier me.  However, I started to feel tired and drained and found myself having to nap for hours during the day.  I later found that my Vitamin B levels had dropped and needed to add the supplement to my diet, but it wasn’t enough.  I needed to make sure that I was absorbing those nutrients and discovered one key thing could help with that – fiber!

I was on the hunt for an easy way to jump-start adding fiber to my daily routine when I was asked to take part in the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge – talk about perfect timing!

After looking into the benefits of the product, I learned that the main ingredient is psyllium, a natural super fiber that works with your body to promote regularity* and help promote digestive health.*  By adding a serving of Metamucil to my daily routine and gradually increasing my intake during the Challenge, by the end of the Challenge  I started to feeler lighter* as Metamucil traps and removes the waste that weighs me down. . As the mother of three young girls, there is nothing more important than staying healthy and having the energy to have fun with them! So now I have a new routine: eat well, stay active and incorporate more fiber into my daily routine.  I’d say I’m on the right track to a new, healthier me!

I challenge you to take the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge.  It’s easy to sign up and even easier to get started.  And once you’ve completed the Challenge, that doesn’t mean that you should stop your new healthy habit – keep things going like I am!

Metamucil is a great addition to your daily routine and can be incorporated in so many easy ways.  Not only can you add it to an 8oz. glass of water, but there are also so many recipes available online.  Doesn’t a pineapple mango protein smoothie sound amazing?  How about a banana orange frosty?  These recipes and more can be found on Metamucil.com and they are just two of the delicious reasons to keep your new fiber routine going.  I know I will!

    Great post and such an important message. Eating more fibre is SO important, I know I don’t eat anywhere near enough!

  • Terri Beavers

    I think I would benefit from taking Metamucil and doing the two-week challenge. I’m going to buy some next time I go shopping. Thank you for sharing!

    Fiber is so important! Metamucil is a great way to make sure you get enough fiber each day. It tastes good, so people do not mind taking it.

  • Heather
    May 7, 2018

    What a great challenge! Really using the product for a couple of weeks is a great way to track how you are feeling and what you can do to improve your overall health. I definitely should look into adding intentional fiber to my diet!

  • Sue Reddel
    May 6, 2018

    I’m a big fan of adding fiber to my diet any way I can. I loved reading all your tips and will consider taking the Metamucil two week challenge. Thanks for the information.

  • Karissa @WithOurBest

    I used to take Metamucil regularly. Then I became regular and didn’t feel like I needed it anymore. Lately, I think I need to get back on the wagon!

  • Marysa

    Such an easy way to add in a healthy element to our daily diet. I have to admit I haven’t been keeping up with eating well or taking fiber supplements, which are so good for you!

  • Ricci
    May 6, 2018

    This is good to know about fiber and the importance it has on our digestive systems. I personally use a good probiotic and has found that it works for me! To each their own though, especially when you know what works for your body!

  • Becky Willis
    May 6, 2018

    I am from a long line of Metamucil users. From my grandparents, aunts/uncles to my parents and more. I totally agree that it is a great product and so important for your regularity! I love the two-week-challenge because once someone does it they won’t go back.

    I like Metamucil. It works really well. I didn’t realize it had other benefits, thanks for sharing your post.

    I’ve also been a Metamucil user and I love it! If you are someone who isn’t getting enough fiber, this will really help you. I just informed my oldest daughter about adding Metamucil to her daily diet regiment just the other day.

  • Melissa Chapman
    May 6, 2018

    I have been a Metamucil user for many years and always feel better when I use it each evening. It is so great to have fiber and this is a supplement with one of the best.

    I feel like we eat tons of fiber in our daily diets already; maybe even too much sometimes. However, I realize many people struggle to that and this could really help them .

  • Bill Sweeney

    A great challenge as a reminder to take in more fiber. Great information shared on the subject of all things fiber.

  • Candy

    Most people don’t eat enough fiber on their own. This is a great challenge. We would see a different in our bodies.

    This is a great reminder to take more fiber! I need to eat more veggies and purchase this product so I can meet the daily fiber intake recommendation.

  • Sarah Bailey

    Hands up I actually knew next to nothing about fibre and what it did for your body thank you for sharing your newly found knowledge.

  • Nancy at Whispered Inspirations

    This is all very interesting information. How cool is this? I think it is important that we make some healthy choices like this.

  • Heather Stone
    April 5, 2018

    We began incorporating Metamucil into our diet about 3 months to increase our fiber intake. I have a son who has digestive issues and rather having just him take it alone we all decided we could benefit from and began taking it with him at breakfast. He has seen improvement, which is such great news

  • Leah

    This is good information. I try really hard to eat healthy and get enough fiber in my diet.

  • Mimi Green
    April 5, 2018

    I totally thought Metamucil was for something else. I can’t believe I’ve been misinformed for so long. This is good information. I need to start making healthier choices.

    Metamucil is some really helpful stuff. I have a friend who always has it on hand.

    Oh yea, a pineapple mango protein smoothie sounds really good. I will have to head over to their website and check the recipe and see what other recipes I can get.

  • Kathy
    April 5, 2018

    Nice to know more about fiber. I know it’s something I should be getting more of myself as well. I do believe I’ve actually tried this product before and it’s really good too.

  • Ruth I.

    I am planning to start my diet plan soon and I think this is perfect. I’ve been searching for what to take and not and I think I will need this.

  • Jenn

    I had no idea that fiber did so much for your body.
    I had no clue that low fiber would make you feel sluggish. I havent tried adjusting this in my diet.

  • Terri Steffes
    April 4, 2018

    Those recipes do sound wonderful! I am a believer of fiber and sometimes it is really difficult to get it all through food. I love having this option.

  • Joely Smith
    April 4, 2018

    I am so glad you found what worked for you! Sometimes a drastic change in diet can cause other issues and it feels like a no-win situation but there is always an answer and you found yours!

  • Ann F. Snook-Moreau

    It’s nice that you can mix the powder into other drinks and treats. I would be more willing to try it that way!

  • Cherri Megasko
    April 4, 2018

    I had no idea that fiber helps you absorb nutrients from the foods we eat. Metamucil is the brand I’ve always used when I’ve felt I needed a little extra fiber.

    I take Metamucil every day. It really helps keep me feeling good, and bonus: it helps keep me feeling full!
