Blog of the Week
As we gear up to head back-to-school, the most difficult part can be figuring out how to get back into the routine. Between getting up and out the door on time in the mornings, after school activities, homework, and getting dinner on the table, it can seem a bit overwhelming. Luckily we have found a few ways to help make the routine seem a little easier to manage. In her blog post, “How to Rock Back To School Routines,” simply stavish gives us some tips for creating new schedules, getting back into the homework routine, and even getting the back to school shopping done without breaking the bank!
Speaking of the back-to-school rush, wouldn’t it be nice to have some healthy, quick breakfast options ready to go in the mornings? Check out this recipe for Baked Oatmeal. You can make it the night before, or even prepare it in bulk and store in the freezer for those mornings when you need to be out the door, now! Also check out the homemade granola recipes in our recipe database for another quick and easy breakfast or snack idea.
