Review: New Stonyfield Whole Milk Smoothies

I am a official Stonyfield blogger; that said, all opinions, as always, are my own.

Yogurt is a big part of our family's diet. We love it for breakfast, blended into salad dressings, smoothies, scooped over fresh fruit for a snack. Here's a new product that we are loving for on the go: Stonyfield Whole Milk Smoothies. Available in Strawberry-Banana, Wild Berry, Peach and Strawberry, these ready-to-drink smoothies are perfect for breakfast or as a snack on the go.

Healthy Meals in a Snap: SNAP Kitchen @SNAPKitchen #SnapKitchen

Yesterday my daughter and I headed to a new-to-us dining option in Lincoln Park: Snap Kitchen. We visited the Lincoln Park location, but there are several convenient Chicago locations.

Snap Kitchen provides healthy, ULTRA CONVENIENT, pre-packaged meals for everyone. Everything is fresh and never frozen. You will find meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even drinks, making this a one-stop shop. Meals are easily re-heatable. If you follow a Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo or Vegan diet, you're sure to find plenty of meals to fit your lifestyle, too. 

The period between after work/school and dinner is always hectic in our home. Our visit to Snap Kitchen was quick and easy: we pulled up - parking was available right in front! - and had a fun time picking up some healthy meals. Everything was there was no arguing with my daughter about what to choose - she had fun picking out some breakfast and lunch items on her own. We planned on enjoying some items for dinner that same evening and my daughter chose some lunchbox items for the next few days.

For dinner, my daughter and I both chose the almond crusted chicken with kale pesto carrots. We loved this healthy take on fried chicken! Satisfying and healthy, it was a wonderful weeknight meal that two me literally 30 seconds to prepare in the microwave!

I also picked up a few breakfast goodies for myself. This strawberry coconut almond parfait was an absolute delight! So healthy and yet I felt like I was indulging in dessert for breakfast!

Snap Kitchen's meals are prepared from scratch daily using organic and locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. The Chicago locations also offer a selection of cold pressed juice ($7.99-9.99); a host of snacks ranging from $2.99-4.99, desserts ($2.49-$3.99). 99 percent of the menu is gluten-free.
