You know what they say about an apple a day….

Well even though my kids love to eat apples, sometimes it’s fun to jazz them up a little. My current idea of jazzing them up was giving the kids applesauce. I mean, that’s about as jazzy as my life has been these last few months. Until I saw something about changing your apples in to doughnut shaped slices and letting the kids create their own fun little snack.

One “learning” element to this is we could talk about shapes — the circle — and if you varied the circle sizes, it’s almost like a built in kid puzzle. Logan loved helping me cut out the holes to the middle of the apple slices. Then came the fun part, decorating our doughnuts! 

Here’s an idea of some doughnut toppings
For the frosting:
Peanut Butter [or any nut butter]
Nutella
Cream Cheese
Honey slather

For the toppings:
Raisins
Craisins
Dried coconut
Chocolate chips
Nuts
Sprinkles
Chia seeds
Flax seeds
Cereal pieces

I mean, really the options are endless, and that’s what makes this so fun. Being able to just mix and match and then of course the eating! What would you put on your doughnuts?!

And don’t forget to follow my on Instagram — I share a lot of this in my IG Stories, as we’re making them!

Do you live in a cloud? And I don’t mean like the rainbows and unicorn cloud. I mean like the mom-brain-fog cloud. The one that just takes over the entire day. Clouds up that to-do list. Has you wondering if you’ve even brushed your teeth today. Honestly, I have that thought ALL the time….and can’t […]

Terrible [early] twos

September 18, 2017

Someone send help. Holly is only 18 months old and already is displaying some serious terrible two behavior. Some days I don’t even know what to do or how to snap her out of it. And honestly, I don’t even know if it’s terrible two behavior. I just know that after she wakes up from […]

Wellness Wednesday

September 13, 2017

Let’s talk about teeth. More so, white teeth. Since white teeth is all the rage. Especially as we head in to fall and winter months when endless cups of coffee [psl] will be had. Instead of putting on some white strips, having to sit around with them for 30-45 minutes, when you’re usually starving or […]

September 11, 2017

Happy Monday and what better way to kick off the week than by getting on the right track with our workouts. Yes. It’s obviously important to have kind of a general idea of what your workouts for the week are going to be. At least for me, that’s what I like to do. Sunday night […]

How to survive the mountains with kids

September 5, 2017

For Labor Day weekend we went on a trip with some friends up in to the mountains. 3 days. 6 kids under 5. Only 5 adults [yes, I was the singled-out adult]. And we all made it out alive, with no fights, no injuries, and actually wanting to come back again. How’d we do it? […]

Friday Favorites

Things around here have been nothing short of a shit show. Just saying. My husband is doing some long, serious work for our family, and has been working late these last few days. So, I feel like I’m pretending to be single-parenting it, and oh.my.word. My hat goes off to all you single mamas out […]

Wellness Wednesday

August 30, 2017

One of the hardest things with having a toddler and preschooler is when tummy pains happen. Logan will tell me a lot now that his belly is hurting. But, who even knows what that means. Is it a belly ache, is he sick, did he eat too many yogurt raisins, did he not eat anything […]
