Eat it, Share it, Live it, Love it!

I am so blessed in that I get to watch my sweet baby Madelyn on Wednesdays. I look forward to this day all week. Brian and I just can't get enough of her! For those of you that are new around here, Madelyn is our grand daughter. She is 6 months old. Talk about a joy. She is just so happy and really beginning to show her personality. However, on Wednesday, I don't get much done. I barely have time for lunch. I don't know how I ever did it with 3 boys. Honestly. I forgot just how much work babies are. We have a great time playing, reading and resting. I don't get to move as much on Wednesdays, but I am okay with it. It's worth it!

On these types of days, I am thankful for some healthy, prepared food. I try to always have something good and healthy in the fridge to eat on the run. Last week, Cedar's Mediterranean Foods sent me the most wonderful package in the mail. I got to try all kinds of goodies. My favorite was the hommus. Oh, this was good. Spinach and artichoke hommus with baked pita chips. The pita chips were so good and I love that they are baked.

Last week after workout, everyone was starving, well, I pulled out my goodies and we got to taste testing. Everyone agreed that all the products were good, but the favorite among the group was the garlic chive feta spread. I don't eat dairy products, so I was glad they were here to help me try ths stuff out. Kristi, Jason, Brian, Hermina, Morgan and Cassie were all willing participants and loved them all. The Spinach Dip went over well too! We also loved the salsa and the tzatziki (cucumber yogurt dip) and the Edamame salad was divine!

I also thought it was funny that I came home yesterday and Jake was plopped in front of the TV with the hommus and chips. I love it when the kids eat the healthy snacks in the house!

So on the days when I don't have time, I'm glad for items like these in the fridge. I will pull out a wrap today smother it with hommus and throw in the edamame salad, wrap it up and enjoy! So quick and easy.

  1. She is so cute! How lucky that you get to spend that time with her!!

  2. such a happy and cute baby. I try to keep a few prepared snacks for when I'm busy or lazy.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I noticed you were doing Insanity now! I wondered how that one was! I've been doing beachbody workouts since 2004, off and on. Right now, I'm back doing the 3/4 version of P90 and the Masters Series, when I have time. It's been about 2 days a week, but I figure that's better than nothing! I have to get back in shape before a cruise in May! Hope you have a good day!!

  4. Oh my gosh Dana! That baby is SO adorable. What a precious grandaughter. My Mom helps my sister with her kids often and she says the same thing. Babies are so much work. Your snack sounds delicious!

  5. Still can't believe you are grandparents!!! Just wanted to thank you for always being upbeat - uplifting and UP, and moving. It's an inspiration to others. I've completely stepped out of my box lately with the gym, boot camp and changing my eating habits. I owe a great deal of that to reading your posts. Thanks Dana!

  6. I'm all for healthy prepared foods - as long as someone else is doing the preparing :D Looks like the ones you received are quite tasty!

    Beautiful grandbaby!!!

  7. What an adorable little girl! :)

    I *love* Greek food... tsatsiki and hummus are some of my faves. I love to cut up cucumbers, sprinkle them with mint and lemon juice and top them with hummus. Yum!

    Thanks for your encouraging words on my blog the other day!

  8. I know how you feel about is so wonderful!! Thanks for the great ideas about something fast to eat..I can't get anything done when I watch my grandson.
