KidFresh Review

So, one of the things I really, really, REALLY did not want to happen has officially happened. My veggie loving baby has turned into a totally picky toddler. Some days it is a struggle to get him to even consider anything but breastmilk (yes, I still nurse. No, I don’t care what you think about that.) I love nursing him but I know at this point he NEEDS solid food and especially veggies! Seriously I was at a loss and so tired of the fight. I had even started pinning recipes on pinterest that would “disguise” the vegetables but y’all that just seemed like a lot of work. (Call me lazy if you must) Don’t get me wrong if I absolutely had to do this I would have BUT thanks to KidFresh I do not.

Okay, so these are foods that toddlers and kids usually LOVE but they have veggies hidden in them, but that’s not all! They don’t have any artificial colors or flavors, no preservatives, Non-GMO, no antibiotics used in their chicken, chickens are fed a vegetarian diet, and the list goes on. I was obviously impressed by this list, but the real test would happen around lunch time. The real test would be if my finicky toddler would eat them. 16730376_10154425771362684_1441632883345141960_n

The next day at lunch I heated these up and gave them to Braven. At first I thought it was a total bust because he just threw it in the floor, but he took the TINIEST nibble and I knew right then I had found a winner. His little eyes lit up a bit and he took an even bigger bite. Y’all this was huge! He hadn’t eaten like that in a few days and this mama was doing a little happy dance! He has eaten every single kidfresh entree we have tried and we haven’t regretted a single purchase. Oh and bonus these will definitely last for more than one serving! Braven doesn’t eat a lot at once (he’s a snacker like me) so we have gotten 5 Braven sized servings out of one box!

I get this pleasure seeing my picky toddler eating those “icky” veggies without even knowing it. I love knowing he is getting the nutrition he needs and that I am feeding him something I can feel good about!


How I became a planner person.

Okay so it’s been about a month since I wrote my last post about no more excuses. I will not lie I actually really struggled in the beginning with this. I was motivated but then I wasn’t. I was ready but then not. For the first week of the new year I was seriously so wishy washy with my new commitment. I mean come on, isn’t that the week MOST people are super committed?

Anyways, it just wasn’t happening untillll I got a planner. Okay so I’m not usually a planner person, like at all. I have always LOVED the idea of planners but most of the time they would end up pushed to the back of a drawer with maybe a week or so filled out. (pathetic, I know) This time though, I had found a planner that actually “fit” me and what I needed.

The planner I have is the mom on the go planner and it seriously has everything I could ever want in a planner: meal planning, budgeting, places to plan for holidays, tons of place to dump my thoughts, AND it’s adorable.

Putting all of that on the back burner though what this planner really did was help hold me accountable. I was writing things down and actually following through this time. Now I have a neat place to put my workout goals and check them off each day. I have a place to plan our meals and stick to our budget. I know that I am now a planner person though because I have found one that actually works for me.

I never thought that any planner was all that different from the other but that is definitely not true. Seriously there is a planner out there for every type of person and they’re definitely not one size fits all.

I kind of can’t believe I just wrote a whole post about planners but I think I’m sold. I am now a planner person. I urge you all to give planners another shot. Find one that works for you and your life! I watched youtube videos, read blog posts, and tons of reviews before I committed and now there’s no turning back (for me at least).

Oh and did you know that decorating them is a thing now?  I mean, STICKERS!
