Yummy Yummy! If you are over the age of 30, we know you’ve had this before……..CoCo Wheats! Remember them? Yes, we bet you do! And if you don’t or are a youngin’ and have never had them, you need to give them a try. They are jam packed with lots of vitamins and minerals and are nice and filling, like oatmeal.
According to the box you bring a 1/2 cup of milk or water to a boil, then add the CoCo Wheats mixing for 30 sec. Then you just let them sit for 2 minutes and they are ready to eat. The box says you can add sugar and/or salt to the milk. Don’t do this! I’ve got a little secret to make them even tastier without adding needless sugar or salt.
So what do we add to make them even tastier with a little bit more of a protein punch? Add 1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter! That’s right, now you’ve got a healthy bowl of goodness that tastes like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Seriously.
You just make them like the box says, without adding salt or sugar. We used soy milk, you can use whatever kind of milk you want. Then, transfer them to the bowl you’re going to eat out of and add 1/4 more cup of milk and the 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. We used Extra Crunchy Jiff. We add a little more milk because they’re pretty thick right out of the pot and we like our warm cereals a bit thinner and not so think.
Try this out and let us know what you think!
You have probably been hearing about kale chips for quite some time now. Almost everyone agrees that these things are really good for you. Kale has well over 100% of your Vitamin A and Vitamin C for the day and is a very low calorie food.
There are a couple different ways to make kale chips. You can cook them at a high heat for less time to make them super crispy and dry, or a lower heat for a longer time period where they don’t get quite as crispy as the high heat ones. Basically its just a taste preference.
We wanted our kale chips to be really crispy, so went for the high heat method.
• 1 bunch Kale (purple or green)
• 1 -2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 teaspoon garlic salt (our regular sea salt if you do not like garlic salt)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Wash and completely dry the kale.
3. Remove the thick stems.
4. Rip the kale up into the size chips you want.
5. Put them in a very large bowl and pour 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil over them and mix it all around to coat evenly.
6. Place them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. If you do an entire bunch of kale it will take 2 baking sheets at least.
7. Sprinkle the garlic salt over them.
8. Cook for 12-15 minutes, checking every couple of minutes after 10 minutes. They will be crispy throughout. Do not flip halfway through, they will cook just fine without.
