LESLIE LIKES: Stasher Bags

I love these Stasher Bags for so many reasons!  First, they are perfect for all ages, can be used for so many things and make back to school a breeze. Stasher bags are self-sealing, airtight, non-plastic bags that replace your typical plastic Ziploc baggies. Made of pure platinum silicone, they are a healthy alternative that’s safe for people and the planet. Best of all, Stasher can do so much more than ordinary plastic bags and containers. They can be used in the freezer, microwave and dishwasher!  So whether you are packing sandwiches for school lunches, snacks for the car on the way to after school activities, or reheating leftovers for a quick dinner, these are the perfect, healthy solution!

Homemade Snack Mix

Food for thought…

Just about everyone has had the store bought snack mix, but truthfully the homemade version is so much better, and better for you! We’ve lightened up the original recipe by using coconut oil and have reduced the amount of salt – but definitely not the flavor. This is a great snack mix to pack for school or sports and the mix in options are endless.

Quick and Easy Protein Pancakes with Fruit

Food for thought…

I love these pancakes because they pack a protein punch without using any protein powder and are so simple to make. Top them with raspberries, strawberries and/or blueberries and a small drizzle of pure maple syrup and you have a healthy and filling breakfast!

Pizza Rolls with Veggie Power

Food for thought…

Kids love pizza and I am certainly not above sneaking tons of veggies into it! These pizza rolls are healthy, filling and kids love them. They are perfect for school lunches, as an afterschool snack and freeze well too.

What’s Your MVP?

I came across this great productivity tip from my recent issue of Family Circle Magazine. They write that perfection is the enemy of completion. I say perfection it is the enemy of just getting started!

We feel that we need to put out the highest quality of work first time out of the gate. Think students who get stuck writing a paper. Now it all makes sense!
