photo cred Cat One last Vancouver installment.. I love grocery shopping in different cities because you get to see different things.  I fell upon the cereal isle and was amaze at what I found.  Now as some of you might know I make my own cereal, Magic Muesli, which is a go-to, pretty much every day.  I make a huge batch and both my husband add some fresh fruit and Bob's your uncle. But I do appreciate that not everyone has time to make their own cereal, let alone want to, so let me introduce "Holy Crap" - a product made popular by Dragon's Den.  It's pretty fantastic and it's made in Canada which is a total plus. It has everything you need to start your engine running in the am but also makes a great snack cause it's filling (and don't forget to drink a glass of water after). So that coupled with a gorge green smoothie for lunch, that's a 2 no-brainer meal solution. Works for me. p.s. My husband likes my muesli better, but he may be biased.

photo cred Cat Got this great recipe for veggie muffins from Michaela the other day with a 100% guarantee that my eldest child would love them......hummmmmm.  What? They have broccoli in them? Do you know my child? No way, no how would those muffins make it past her lips.  But I'm always up for a challenge and any chance of getting more veg into her is always worth the try. Muffins Mahoo Bowl #1 combine: 2 cups quinoa flour (vitamix raw quinoa into flour) 3/4 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt Bowl #2 mix this : 2/3 cup raw honey 1/4 cup org coconut oil 2 org eggs Blend this to make 1/2 cup puree: 1/4 cup apple juice 1 1/2 cups chopped org. broccoli (frozen or fresh) OR 1/2 cup pumpkin puree Combine bowl 1 & 2 & puree to this: 1 to 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 3 bananas) 1/2 cup grated org carrots 1/4 cup plain org yogurt 1/2 tsp vanilla Bake them @ 350 degree for approx. 25-30 minutes - yields 24 muffins Guess what? She likes them. Oh and I blended it up with extra water for 8 month old. (original recipe based on this)
