Saving Time with Vigilant Eats, Cabbage Steaks Recipe, and KeVita Probiotic Drinks

I think all the spring breaks are officially wrapping up this weekend, which means either you just got back, or you are about to get back to the grind on Monday.

I have two kids in different schools which makes spring break span over three weeks. I’m VERY excited for Monday when we are all back to our normal schedules! But, this means our mornings are back to being super hectic trying to get everyone out the door on time.


Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal

To make our mornings a little less hectic, we enjoy a quick breakfast of oatmeal, and some mornings we do that with Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal. A major TIME saver!! These superfood cereals are so convenient—just boil some water, pour over the top, stir and enjoy within 5 minutes.

I drop a chunk of butter or ghee in for an added boost of nutrients, and because, frankly, it just tastes so darn good. Each cup is a meal packed with the perfect mix of fat, protein and carbs to keep you full and focused for your day ahead.

All Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereals are certified gluten free, vegan and organic. If you love chocolate, make sure you try the Maca Double Chocolate; it’s divine! Our current favorite is Coconut Maple Vanilla—big chunks of shredded coconut and little bits of chewy dates. Don’t miss out on this week’s super sale!


Great River Organics Green Cabbage

Great River Organics is back at it this week with beautiful heads of green cabbage. The leaves are tender with a bit of sweetness. With all this cold weather, we have been eating our cabbage braised, fried, and roasted.

Have you ever had roasted cabbage? All it took was one time for us, and we were hooked! It takes time (45 minutes to roast), but it’s little effort (5 minutes of prep). Try my roasted cabbage steaks recipe—it’s our family favorite!


KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks

Like I mentioned last week, I LOVE fermented foods! Have you ever tried water kefir? Some of you might be thinking, What the heck is that? Water kefir is a probiotic beverage made with water kefir grains and sugar water. These grains are a mix of bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The water kefir grains ferment the sugar water and produce a tasty probiotic beverage. Water kefir is an excellent alternative to sugary beverages, especially soda. They are low in sugar, effervescent, and loaded with probiotics!

KeVita Sparkling Probiotic Drinks are light, refreshing, and contain a billion live probiotics! Water kefir contains fewer strains of bacteria and yeasts than milk kefir, but they do contain far more than other cultured products like yogurt or kombucha. Water kefir’s probiotics are so abundant that they can colonize the gut with a host of healthy, good bacteria. This helps boost our immune system and aid in digestion. We have loved every flavor of KeVita we have tried. Grab yourself a bottle and see what you think!
