Making the Switch with Jennie-O

Champions for Kids, CFK, #cbias
Eeek!  I am SO excited to be starting my year off with Champions for Kids! For those of you that are new, Champions for Kids is a GREAT organization that teams up with great brands, to mobilize millions in making a difference in the lives of kids. Each month they pair up with a brand for a Simple Service Project.

This month, CFK is teaming up with Jennie-O and encouraging you to 'Give Breakfast a Wake-Up Call!'  Breakfast is THE most important meal of the day. For us, on school days, it is a mad rush to get out the door. Mads likes to eat breakfast, with her friends, at school most days.  Some days, she likes to have breakfast at home.

Mads is at the age now that she can start cooking a few things on her own. This weekend I made a HUGE batch of Jennie-O Turkey Sausage (more on why in just a bit). I saved a few cups of sausage and put it in a baggie in the fridge. A few months ago I taught Mads how easy it was to make an omelet in the microwave. I was a bit nervous to let her do it on her own so we just left it at me showing her how to do it.  This weekend though, I let her have at it!

She LOVED being able to pull out the already cooked sausage from the fridge, pour the eggs into a mug, stir and pop it into the microwave....all by herself. In less than 2 minutes her healthy, warm, and yummy breakfast is ready! She is already planning out her next omelet creation and I need to run to the store for more Jennie-O Sausage!  It is REALLY good!

CFK and #JennieO4Kids are encouraging you to teach children and parents the benefits of a healthy breakfast, with a low-fat protein like Jennie-O bacon or sausage, and how it can help children focus and stay alert in class. The girls and I decided the best place for us to do that would be at church. We purchased a bag of oranges and quartered each orange. I made sausage patties, scrambled eggs with sausage (the kids LOVED the eggs and BEGGED me to make more for next week....), biscuits and we picked up some 100% Orange Juice. I am not kidding, the kids devoured the eggs and the sausage! lol I loved knowing that their little bellies were full and hopefully it helped them stay focused during their lesson.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
