Lunch Made Easy: #NaturalFoods #BacktoSchool Shopping

This post is sponsored by WhiteWave 
Foods & Kroger. All opinions are my own. Full disclosure.

While we were living in Southwest Michigan, we did not have any Kroger stores in our area. I knew, however, from visiting family in other places how great their Natural & Organic Foods Section was. 

Now that we've recently moved to the Tucson, Arizona area we get to frequent Fry's Food which is part of the Kroger Company family of stores.

I was so excited to start our back to school grocery shopping to get all our favorite gluten free & allergy friendly needs.

How to Pack Hot Foods in a Thermos {PLUS 35+ Ideas for Lunches}

This post is sponsored by Horizon Organic. All opinions are my own. Read our full disclosure statement by clicking here. 

One of the most popular questions I receive is "how do I pack hot foods for school lunches?"

We are fortunate that Little Miss has access to a microwave at lunch time, but some foods pack better in a Thermos instead of reheating that way. It's also not the case for all our readers, so even though I try to answer this question as it comes up... it's important to also take the time to share about it on blog.

One of her favorite hot lunch items that I pack for her macaroni & cheese. I'm thankful I can easily whip her up a box of Horizon Organic Gluten Free Cheesy Mac to satisfy her cravings.

Lunchbox SunButter Spice Bars {Top 8 Allergen Free}

This post is sponsored by SunButter Sunflower Butter. All opinions are my own. Read our full disclosure here

It's that time of year again... back to school! Time to get those lunch boxes ready.

Since moving from Michigan to Arizona about a month ago, Little Miss started a new school that follows a "balanced calendar" -  meaning, she is on an almost "all year school" calendar and school began back on July 18th. Crazy, but it's let her start developing friendships right away, which is great.

I'm always looking for simple lunchbox ideas and recipes that allow me to pack in protein and yummy allergy friendly ingredients she can enjoy at school. Just like these SunButter Spice Bars. They're gluten free and top 8 allergen free.

Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels Peanut Free Giveaway #PretzelsBaby

This post and giveaway is sponsored by Snyder's of Hanover. All opinions are my own.

For years, I have admittedly bypassed the Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels on the shelves. Even when they released their Gluten Free Pretzels (which are now certified GF), I knew looming on the backside was that warning... "Made in a facility that handles peanut butter." 

While I appreciated their labeling, since it's not mandatory to label for cross-contamination, it was something my family could not eat.

WELL, THAT HAS CHANGED! Snyder's of Hanover production at its main pretzel bakery in Hanover, Pennsylvania is now dedicated Peanut Free

To celebrate the change, we're giving away a #PretzelsBaby Prize Pack + a $25 Visa Gift Card to one lucky winner!

Easy Summer Road Trip Snacks #HorizonSnacks #Ad

This post is sponsored by Horizon Organic. All opinions are my own. Disclosure statement.

We love taking road trips in the summer to visit family out of state, new destinations, and even just quick trips to Lake Michigan and the beach.

In a few weeks, we'll be embarking on our biggest road trip yet as we move our family across country. I'm already planning and packing in my head what we'll need and use for the two and half day drive. 

Traveling when you're on a specialty diet or have food allergies can be tricky. There's not always places to get safe food along the way, so you must always be prepared. That's why I love packing Horizon Organic products + healthy sides to give Little Miss yummy options on the road!
