A New Comfort Food Recipe, Made with Simple, Local Ingredients

fosterfarms-chicken-stew-recipe

Cooler weather calls for comfort food. But when I think of comfort food I think of carbs, carbs, and extra carbs. It’s all the yummy food that’s certainly not on the healthy side and definitely not fresh. An overload of processed foods to be exact.

Recently, however, I accidentally created a healthier version of a comfort food recipe. It all started with the change in weather and the so-called Kinder bug. Mia’s kindergarten school bug for lack of a better word.

fosterfarms-chicken-stew-recipeIt seems that the Kinder bug made its way back into our home for the third time in just 3 months. And let me just say, I’ve made multiple batches of chicken soups and stews because of it. So it’s safe to say I’ve perfected a recipe that is not only delicious but also on the healthier side (less sodium,  antibiotic-free chicken, and local grown fresh ingredients).

Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken is not only locally grown (i.e. California and Pacific Northwest) but also 100% antibiotic-free. For us, this is key when serving meals to my family as we try our best to only consume poultry that contains no antibiotics whatsoever.

  • I don’t know about you but our mornings are surely not picture perfect. And now that school has started it’s certainly become pretty chaotic. Trying to wake the kids up, get them dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed and out the door for school all while whining and complaining in between. I always feel that no matter how well-prepared I am the night before something eventually throws off our routine. Anyone else relate? .
.
So for that, I’m always prepared and carry with me @belvita. Did you know that belVita Breakfast Biscuits have NO high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners or artificial flavors? They also provide 4 hours of nutritious steady energy. And best of all they’re tasty, wholesome and convenient for us busy folks. #belVitaPartner #MyWholesomeBreakfast

  • #ad Every time I see the clock ⏰ approaching ‪6:30 pm‬, aka time for our kids bedtime routine 🛏, I get an extra burst of energy. Mainly because it reminds me that our girls will soon be counting sheep or that much closer to it. 😴🎉😁

And with so many bedtime routine blog posts and tips out there, I've come to the realization that they’re not all perfect for every family out there. Certainly not ours. But one things for sure, we can all appreciate a stress-free routine, right? 🙋‍♀️ .

  • #AD | Getting an annual eye exam is important for kids and adults even if you don’t wear contacts or glasses. You see, as first time parents we had no idea that kids should get their very first eye exam at six-months of age. And unfortunately, we learned this the hard way. Check out our latest blog post to see what happened to our oldest daughter Mia when she was only 2 years old and we neglected to get her her first eye exam let alone add her to our vision plan. @vspvisioncare
