Tip{py} Tuesdays- Snack Attack!

Or the snacks are attacked! Either way you phrase it- my kids have been attacking all the food coming into this house lately. They go through growth spurts at the same time! It drives me insane. It’s like having triplets and I’m just as busy as a mom of one. So I have taught my kids to do a few things independently to help me out and to teach them a few life skills they will need in the real world.

One is getting themselves a snack. A while back MrsMissionControl wrote a great post about teaching her kids how to get their own cups and plates.

We use this method in our home too. And to help my kids get their own snack as well I went a step further. I bought a large over-sized snap lock lidded monstrosity of a jug from the px and simply filled it with gold fish. It will hold two of the bags from Costco.

My only issue? SB helping herself.



Foodie Friday…Avocado Chicken Salad!

Saw this on Facebook and had to share!  So yummy and contains all natural ingredients.  Such a great way to get in some protein.  I’m thinking this would be a perfect “after-workout” snack?  Have a great weekend!  🙂




2 or 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1 avocado, 1/4 chopped onion,  juice of 1/2 a lime, 2 Tbsp cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.

Cook chicken breast until done, let cool, and then shred. Mix with all other ingredients.

I’m thinking this would be great on crackers, bread, or with some greens as a salad.  Enjoy!
