Infused water to keep my kids properly hydrated during all their endless after-school activities. It is cheaper, healthier and a whole lot more tasty than sugary drinks.
There is really no limit to what you can do with infused water but here are my 2 favorite recipes.
Strawberry infused water: Strawberries, watermelon, slices of lemon, stevia leaf if you want it sweet, then add your water and let it infused overnight in the refrigerator .
Cucumber infused water: Cucumber, lemon, mint ( I love that you can use fresh produce from your tiny garden like we did) and water and infused over night.
Breakfast is an important meal, I love sending the kids off to school with a very nutritious meal, that sets the standard for the day, from their mood to their energy level, good wholesome unrefined whole wheat zucchini pancakes is one of our all time favorites.
100% whole wheat banana zucchini pancakes:
- 2 bananas
- 1/2 zucchini
- 2 happy eggs
- 1c milk (I always use almond)
- Vanilla 1/2tsp Cinnamon 1/2tsp
- 1 cup whole wheat flour + 2 tablespoons
- Pinch of salt
- Oil for skillet
Shred your zucchini, mash your banana, mix all together and fry. For the small pancakes you see on here I use a tablespoon to scoop the batter and for the large I use a 1/4 measuring cup.
I use every opportunity to nourish the kids so snacks are just as healthy as regular meal and smoothies are healthy super tasty snack. Here is our 9yr old son’s all time favorite snack and it is so easy to make if you have a blender..
Ingredients (I used all organic but for the coconut water)
- Coconut water (use apple juice if you want extra sweet)
- Little ice
It is amazing how small changes like these ends up making a huge difference in your family’s health and wallet.
