Happy 4th of July y’all! Well, almost… I tend to get in the patriotic mood a little early since Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s always packed with sunshine, fun, and all the best that summer brings.
We have a busy holiday weekend ahead of us. We’re headed to the San Francisco Zoo with Brian’s cousins on Saturday. I haven’t been since I was a kid myself and I can’t wait to share it with Ziva! We’ll have a more mellow family day (with meal prep) on Sunday, and then we’re having my mom over for her Birthday Brunch on Monday morning.
We just moved to a small city in the East Bay and are planning on walking to the local 4th of July festival after brunch. We can wait to take Ziva’s deluxe radio flyer out on the town. Ziva and Stella (our niece) are going to have a blast riding around the fair! I can’t wait to get the girls in their matching 4th of July dresses too. Fingers crossed they both agree to wear them 😁.
In the spirit of the holiday I made a delicious red, white, and blue snack yesterday that was toddler and mom approved. If you’re following me on FB you know I’m currently taking part in the 21 Day Fix Extreme (21 DFX) TV Test Group, aiming to be chosen for the new 21 DFX infomercial! The meal plan is a little more strict than the regular 21 Day Fix meal plan, but still uses the same portion control using containers.
For this snack I needed a protein (red container), and I had one more purple container (fruit) that I needed to eat before 6pm (per the plan), so I whipped up this simple and delicious red, white, and blue snack. For a young toddler I would slice the blueberries in half and use whole fat yogurt, but for myself I used:
- 1 serving of non-fat plain Greek yogurt (1 red container)
- 1 purple container of fresh organic blueberries and raspberries
- 1 packet of stevia sweetener
Simple, on plan, and delicious!
