Smoothies, Salads, and Sunshine!!

I was shopping the other day and found these really nifty cups and my kids thought they were cool, so we bought them!

The straws twist around the outside of the cup, so when they are drinking from them they can see the liquid travel up, up, up and into their little mouths.  Very FUN!

Today, we decided for lunch we would make smoothies and put them into these little twister cups.  My daughter wanted a pink smoothie and my son wanted yellow……hmmm

Okay, so we used strawberries, bananas, chia seeds and almond milk for hers….

and mango, banana, chia seeds, and coconut milk for his….

mmmmm….mmmmmm…..good!

Next course for this lunch was salad!

My kids love salad….and that’s good because leafy greens are so important to include into the diet!

They gobbled these up so quickly that I didn’t even get to take a picture of them eating it!!!

Oh well 🙂

Their little tummies were still hungry so I cut up a huge organic Gala apple and served it up with some SunButter.

Sunbutter is made from sunflower seeds and is super tasty!

We love it!!

Next on my list for these two were some sunshine!

Good old fashioned Vitamin D!

WAIT…buddy-look at the camera!

Much better!

Did you notice the swing they are sitting on??  I picked up that frame at a garage sale for $1.00!!!  It was old and worn but my husband spray painted it and I picked out some fabric and sewed it on there….notice what the fabric pattern is???

FRUIT!!!

LOL-I just loved the fruit pattern and brightness of the print….so for under $15 (spray paint, material and the $1.00 for the frame) they have a little swing that they love to sit on!
