As July comes to an end, the countdown begins for the last days of summer – for the children at least! With back to school around the corner, we at Essence of Vitality know how the transition from “summer time,” to “school time” can be quite challenging for the first couple of week as you recalibrate your kids back into their school, extracurricular, and bedtime schedules while also shopping for back to school necessities. Our SELECT4ME July feature are two simple and amazing recipes via The Food Babe that you can incorporate into your children’s meals for lunch and as a after school treat. Our first recipe is a refreshing coconut berry creamsicle pop using coconut milk (breastfeeding mamas, feel free to use your God-given milk) and mixed berries of your choice (organic maple syrup, coconut nectar, raw honey, or agave are optional natural sweeteners to use for those with a bit of a sweet tooth). The second recipe, for those who want to veer away from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, is Food Babe’s Favorite Sprout Wrap – which you can serve open-faced, wrapped up, or roll it up and dice it into vegan pinwheels (omit the mustard for those who are vegan and substitute with some sprinkled lemon juice directly from lemons for some zest).
