Once upon a time, I was getting ready for an all day outing.  I began packing my my diaper bag for my growing toddler. My toddling one year old seemed to be always hungry, so along with the regular clothes, diapers, wipes and toys, I decided to pack some food for him as well.  “A banana will do the trick”, I think to myself as I put it in the bag.  Later on in the day, as my toddler shows signs of needing a snack, I pull that banana out of the bag and find that it had gotten squished.  Mashed banana all through my diaper bag.  It was staining the clothes and creating a sticky mess.  Not fun.  Not fun at all.  Now, in order to feed my little boy, I either have to make due with that banana, or make him go without.

OneBar:  Healthy Snacks for Your Little Ones!

Another time, in a situation similar to the above, I packed the banana in a separate pocket of the diaper bag, so that if it did happen to get squished, I wouldn’t get it on all of the clothes and diapers.  This time, I did not end up needing the banana that day and totally forgot about it.  I found it days later, rotting and black, oozing out juicy, rotting banana juices and once again, causing a mess in my diaper bag.

It’s times like these that I wish I would have known about OneBar!  This awesome snack would have given my child that serving of fruit that I was looking for, without creating the mess in my bag!  If I had forgotten to give it to him that day, it would still be fine as it won’t rot like a normal piece of fruit will.

So, I know you’re wondering what this baobab is all about.  I was, too!  Let me tell you!

All About Baobab

  • It is very alkaline and is an excellent way to address the high acidity of the American diet.
  • It is one of the few sources of dietary calcium found in plants.
  • It has nearly six times the amount of potassium found in bananas,
  • It has lots of vitamin C
  • It is a great source of fiber and magnesium.

What Flavors of OneBar can I get?

OneBar:  One Pure Serving of Fruit

There are 3 flavors available:

  • Apple
  • Cherry
  • Mango

My personal favorite is Apple, but I liked all of them nearly as well!  The fruity taste was so fresh and the texture was just the right amount of chewiness.  I normally don’t like any cherry flavors because I always think it leaves an unpleasant after taste.  This cherry taste, though, I was so surprised that I actually liked it!  I’m impressed OneBar!  3 of my kids have tested them as well and they all really liked them!

Camping Meal: Santa Fe Chicken Packets + Baked Potatoes

This is another camping meal that I managed to throw together at the last minute.  It was originally one of those camping packet meals that you place in the fire while you’re camping, but since I try to minimize any work I do while camping, I prepared 8 individual packets for my family before we left and we cooked it in the slow cooker!  It turned out great.  A tasty meal that we didn’t really have to work for.

Santa Fe Chicken Camping Packets

 

I know I keep telling you how much I love my tool, the slow cooker, but when it makes life so much easier for me, what’s not to love?  I can even take it camping?!  Yep!  That’s because we get an electric site, but it’s ooooh so worth it!  We feel like we eat better when we have a slow cooker along with us!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15oz) can of chili beans (some like black beans instead)
  • 1 (10oz) can of diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • Cooking Spray
  • Aluminum Foil

Directions:

  1. Mix together chili beans, diced tomatoes & green chilies, corn, cumin, onion chili powder, paprika and salt in a bowl.  Santa Fe Chicken Foil Dinner
  2. Lay out a piece of foil and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Place chicken in the middle of the foil.
  4. Spoon bean/tomato mixture on top of the piece of chicken.  Santa Fe Chicken Tin Foil Packet Meal in the Slow Cooker
  5. Wrap the foil around it.  Tin Foil Packet:  Chicken Santa Fe
  6. Place it in the slow cooker and cook for 8 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high.  Santa Fe Chicken Packet for Camping - Cook it in the Slow Cooker!

 

With the meal, we served baked potatoes!  That was super easy.  All I had to do was individually foil wrap each potato.

Baked Potatoes in the Slow Cooker

 

Place these in the slow cooker on high for all day.  You may want to rotate around though, as these do not cook evenly in the slow cooker.  The bottom ones will be more done and the upper ones won’t.

One mistake I made was I poked all of the potatoes befor I put them in the foil, just because I have a habit of doing that.  If you plan on not cooking yours right away (like me), you won’t want to poke them, otherwise you’ll have brown spots on the inside and you may think it’s looking rotten.  Once I realized my mistake, I was able to eat them!  :)

 

There you have it, one very easy meal to make in your slow cooker while you’re out camping OR you can just amke it while you’re home.  It’s super easy!

Easter is right around the corner (April 20th to be exact).  Do you know what you’ll be serving for Easter dinner yet?  We typically get together with my side of the family and have the traditional Easter fixings of ham with lots of delicious sides!  After we eat, we head outside to hide Easter eggs filled with candy and treats and we let all the kids (14 in all this year!) go and find them.  It’s always a great time and we make some precious memories together!

Did you know that there’s an easy way to find out the lowest prices on Easter foods like ham, potatoes, eggs, produce, and candy?  You can, with the Favado App!  A few months ago, my sister showed me the Favado App on her phone and I was so impressed that I downloaded it onto my iPad.

Why Do I Like the Favado App?

The main reason I like it, is because it allows me to look at my favorite stores and see what the best deals at those stores are.  It saves me time and money both, by matching current coupons with the sales at the stores.  I live in a rural community and don’t have many stores to choose from, but Favado even feature MY stores.  Stores like Walmart, Dollar General and Aldi!  These are stores I frequent on a regular basis!  In order to find your local stores, all you have to do is enter your zip code and the App will tell you all the deals for your area and show you where to print the coupon (if there is one).  It’s really cool!

Because Favado wanted to make your Easter meal really simple and affordable for everyone, they’ve created a FREE Easter Recipes & Grocery List for you to use in your meal planning! Each of the recipes calls for commonly used ingredients, that will most likely be discounted the week before Easter.

Delicious food, delicious savings…
