I’ll be honest. I was much better with my eating habits before my daughter was born. Before she came along I rarely went without breakfast and would pack nutritious lunches to take with me to work, and usually throw in a good snack too. Now, even though I spend all day at home with my daughter, I find myself skipping meals altogether or grabbing junk food as we rush to the library for storytime or out to run errands. After all, baby comes first! I know a lot of mamas out there can relate. You just get so busy and it can be easy to forget that you actually need to take care of yourself in order to take care of your little ones too!
That’s why I knew it was time for this busy mom to put together a little refueling basket! Something that had easy snacks that were nutritious, filling, and would refuel this busy mama while on-the-go. I wanted to include something to drink as well, because staying hydrated is something I definitely struggle to do while running around with my daughter.
I picked up a small basket that I knew would fit easily in my car and then headed to my local Harris Teeter to grab some “fuel” for my refueling basket. I picked out some Honest Tea® drinks and Simple Truth® snacks. Two amazing, organic brands that I knew would help me accomplish my mission for better snacking.
I have always loved drinking Honest Tea as something besides just water that I don’t have to feel guilty about. They come in fun, refreshing flavors in unsweetened and “just a tad sweet” varieties. I enjoy both kinds, depending on if I want something just a little sweet or not. I love that their drinks are made with such few ingredients, and that I know what I’m actually putting into my body when I drink it. I picked up a few flavors for my basket, including Peach, Peach Ginger, and Pomegranate Blue Flavored Herbal Teas! Yum!
The next part of my refueling basket was the new line of Simple Truth snacks. From conveniently portioned popcorn and breakfast cookies to trail mixes and jerky, they have plenty of options for guilt-free on-the-go snacking. I grabbed a few of everything and added it to my basket for perfectly portioned snacks that I know will help me stay fueled throughout the day.
I am so happy that I decided to make this Busy Mom Refueling Basket for my car. Now I don’t have an excuse for not taking care of myself. I don’t have to worry about not eating something all day or eating something not so great, plus everything in my basket is organic! That makes this natural mama very happy. After all, September is National Organic Month! If you are a busy mom like me (and if you are a mom, you know that means you are busy!) you’ll thank me if you make yourself an Easy Snacking Refueling Basket. Whether it’s on your counter, in your car or at your desk, you’ll be sure to make better snacking choices with options like Honest Tea and Simple Truth Organic snacks at your fingertips!
