crysp May the 4th be with you!
I have a 6 year old obsessed with Starwsrs and I can never resist making a healthy themed bento so here is what I came up with last night!
I had no special cookie cutters so BB8 was an easy character to create given that he is just two circles!
Admittedly I used blue food dye to create the lines on the bread but I'm ok with that just this once!
Taking a tooth pick and a small jar I created the lines on him from a photo I found online. (I know he isn't blue but it works) Not too bad! And Asher knew right away who his tuna sandwich was supposed to be!#win

crysp I get asked all the time how I cleared up my skin , how I have so much energy, how do I stay fit while being a busy mom, etc and truly it all leads back to one MAJOR CHANGE I made 5 years ago.
NUTRITION!
After Iost my Dad to Cancer I learned a lot about nutrition & clean eating and how FOOD can truly heal and what we eat either works for us or against us.
I love paying it forward to inform others. That's why 1x per month I love hosting a 5 day clean eating challenge that is completely complimentary to ANYONE.
You will receive a free meal plan, shopping list, be in a private virtual challenge group with others for accountability, and you will have fun while you make some clean changes to your diet. On average the girls who have done this with me in the past lose anywhere from 4-6 lbs and they don't want to stop!
If you are interested like and comment below and I'll get you the link to our group!

crysp Zucchini Pizza Boats
Gord and I had the boats and the boys enjoyed little rounds "mini pizzas". I got 1 🏻 and 1 🏻from Asher and from Fraser.... He apparently wasn't in the mood to eat anything tonight 😕

These boats each have half of a mini zucchini sliced in half topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and veggie pepperoni.

crysp Tonight's dinner inspired by @pinchofyum
Miso Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps!
I've made these before and totally loved the grape and salty peanut sauce combo. An easy weeknight dinner.
INGREDIENTS

For the Sauce:
¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
3 tablespoons miso
½ cup broth or water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
3 green onions, minced
1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed, minced (optional)

For the Lettuce Wraps
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups red, green or black Grapes from California, halved
butter lettuce leaves for serving
lime juice

INSTRUCTIONS

Whisk all the sauce ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

Heat a grill or skillet over medium high heat. Coat the chicken with the chili powder and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper.
When the grill is hot, add a little bit of butter if necessary to prevent sticking, and add the chicken.
Cook for a few minutes on each side until the chicken is cooked through. I like to let it get it really golden brown on the outside. Set aside and let cool for at least five minutes. Cut or shred into small pieces.

In a mixing bowl, combine about half of the sauce with the chicken and the grapes. Add more sauce as needed to get everything evenly coated.

Stuff each butter lettuce leaf with the mixture. Add water or oil to the remaining sauce until it pours evenly off the end of a spoon - use it to drizzle over the top. Squeeze with lime juice when serving if you're that kind of person. 🏼 #dinnerinspiration #dinnerrecipe

crysp Good Morning Sunday. I'm feeling well rested and ready to take on the day! Fraser sleep through the night again! #sleepsense works without too much agony! Used it with Asher and it worked just as well. 3 nights of re establishing the rules and on the 4th night he slept through and was easy to put to bed. Yay!
Today's breakfast is a whole wheat brown butter walnut Bread from #crustbakeryonfort topped with my homemade peanut butter, almonds and sliced banana. AND ️ of course!
Have a great #sundaymorning!

crysp Did you know know there was a difference between "CocOA" and "CacAO"? Yep there totally is and for a long time I've was a bit confused about the difference in the spelling and wondered what if any difference there actually was between the two.
So heres the deal... Even though CocOA and CacAO come from the same bean there is a fairly big difference between the two and how they are processed.
Basically one is the Raw version of the other.... CacAO is Raw and CocOA is Roasted.
CacAO (pronounced: kuh-KOW) is the purest and rawest form of a cocoa bean.
Cacao is not roasted. CacAO is made from removing the cacAO beans from their pods (which grow on cacAO trees), and then fermenting them. (And fermentation is a wonderful thing)

The beans are then cold-pressed to remove the cocao butter or fat from the beans and then dried.
Cacao powder does look almost exactly the same as cocoa powder, but none of the nutrients, antioxidants, and enzymes have been cooked out, therefor the overall nutrition of the cocoa bean remains intact in Cacao powder.
CocOA takes it a step further – it gets roasted at really high temperatures. Keep in mind heating any plants kills a lot of living enzymes (ie. minerals/vitamins/healthy stuff) in the plants, just think about what an over cooked broccoli looks like when it's been steamed way too long..... This means that cocOA has much less of a nutritional value than the raw cacAO stuff does.

Of course CacAO is the healthier and therefor more expensive choice but just like anything else once you understand the value in paying a little bit more and getting a better product it becomes a no brainer to choose the nutrient dense option! Right? Right!

crysp This quote is from my personal development this morning. Feeding my mind with positive, motivating works in the morning sets up your day for success.
This quote stuck with me because so often people want something but so rarely are they willing to WORK for it.
In our society we expect everything to happen right away "microwave mentality" but success doesn't happen so quickly, it takes time and commitment.
But the price IS worth the reward.
And those who can see that are the ones who will succeed.

crysp Tip of the Day:

My Taco Seasoning recipe is taped to the outside of my jar so that when we run out its easy to make more. No need to search for the recipe on the blog or in a recipe book.
I do this with my pancake mix too! Add all the dry ingredients into the jar and mix well. #tipoftheday

crysp We started re-sleep training Fraser this week. After multiple hospital visits, asthma, pneumonia, colds and vacation he has really gotten off track. Needing to hold mommys hand to fall asleep, waking in the night etc. Not great. And I know I've become his sleep prop, he falls asleep holding my hand and when he wakes up he needs me to fall back asleep. Time to get things back to normal and have everyone sleeping through the night again. Coffee is our friend this week!
