Egg Favorites

Today is all about eggs! I wanted to compile a few of my favorite egg dishes because Brooks is currently all about the eggs and I needed a little reminder myself of all the amazing things I have done with little yummy eggs! They have been an awesome sidekick for some seriously tasty breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert creations that I’ve shared on the blog over the years! Check them out and let me know what you think!

And here’s a little bonus fun fact: Since it’s June and everyone is in summer vacation mode {I know I am!}, on top of all of the other health benefits, Eggland’s Best eggs have 4 times MORE vitamin D than ordinary eggs. Sunlight is important for our bodies to produce Vitamin D, but sunscreen will also block that absorption while protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. So its important to lather up that sunscreen and eat your eggs!

Swapping out your ordinary eggs with Eggland’s Best for your morning omelet with a glass of cold milk, and adding a tasty EB hard-cooked egg as an afternoon snack will put you on the right track to getting your daily dose of Vitamin D.

A little more about Egglands Best -> Compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Best large egg contains:

  • 10 times MORE vitamin E
  • 4 times MORE vitamin D
  • 3 times MORE vitamin B12
  • More than DOUBLE the Omega 3
  • 35% MORE Lutein
  • 25% LESS saturated fat
  • 60 Calories per large egg

Arnold® Healthfull® Bread Giveaway

I was recently challenged to swap out all of the bread in our house for the week with Arnold® Healthfull® Bread – It was a challenge I was pretty excited to take part in!

baby eatsGood bread is one of those things that we always have to have in our house. There are endless ways to make bread exciting and delicious – PLUS carbs are pretty much one of Brooks’ all time favorite things – so getting creative with bread is a big part of our munchkin meal incentive!

Stay tuned for a Brooks’ Eats post, coming soon!

A few of my favorite bread creations include: French Toast, Grilled Banana Sandwich, PB&J {a classic}, Grilled Cheese + Tomato Soup, and Chicken Salad – all of which I’ve been craving a lot lately so it’s been necessary to always have some great bread on hand!

Got Sunscreen?

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Banana Boat®. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

beach run

The warmer weather that the summer season brings makes it a great time for the whole family to get together and have fun outside. We’ve been soaking up the sun all over the place lately. Little man and I love to be outside as much as possible. It tires both of us out but it’s so nice to be outside in the fresh air {when it’s not 100* out – then I am literally dying}. We frequent the beach, the pool and all the watering holes in Philadelphia.

poolfun

And our sunny days out and about often begin by covering my little ones head to toe in sunscreen, and reapplying liberally throughout the day. I’m sort of a freak when it comes to sunscreen – I apply it to both Brooks + myself all the time – especially before we go out into the sun + immediately after sweating/swimming. And both of us are always wearing a hat – to protect our skin, but also because Brooks doesn’t have much hair on his head still, so I need to protect him from burning his scalp! It’s been my summer mission to keep both of us from getting burned + I’m happy to report, so far my mission has been a success!

banana boat

Our mission has been extra successful because we got to try out some of  Banana Boat‘s new sunscreens! Freshly launched is its most comfortable line of sun protection yet – SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist®Sunscreen, which goes beyond sun protection and is great for everyday use. This new formula allows sand to easily brush off and moisturizes to relieve dryness caused by sun, chlorine and salt water. We have put this to the test the past few weeks and it’s all sorts of awesome – especially the sand part!

 The new Sport Performance® Lotion Sunscreen with Powerstay Technology is also a favorite because of the light-weight, sweat resistant, water resistant (up to 80 minutes), quick absorbing, non-greasy and won’t run in eyes features. Plus it’s SPF 50 which has been great for long days in the hot sun! We keep this bad boy in our stroller at all times!

And for a little more fun in the sun: Kicking off the summer festivities, the Banana Boat® Best Summer Ever “Great Big Family Reunion” offers summer fun in the sun adventures for the whole family – you can enter to win one of five $30 Banana Boat® Prize Packs including Banana Boat®koosie, key chain, draw string backpack and three sunscreen products.

And by golf I mean picking up the balls, throwing them all over the place and stealing the flags from the holes.

Good times.
