Grab-and-Go French Toast Cups

We are officially midway through August. When did that happen? The kiddos will begin going back to school, and the busy days will arrive. Life for me come September will surely be different. I won’t be heading back to my classroom to those eager adorable artists, but rather home working on LCK & the Lexi’s Clean Kitchen Cookbook (eeeeeee!!!!!)

While I won’t be running out the door to my classroom, I’ll be running around to a million other events, meetings, and so on and so forth. So easy & healthy are on my mind.

These French Toast Cups are the perfect breakfast, on-the-go. Easy to make, and are gluten, grain, dairy-free, & paleo friendly! Make ahead at the beginning of the week and have a delicious breakfast all week long.

    No-Bake & Nut-free Powerbites

    Happy Healthy Food Friday, my friends! We’re at the mid-way through August mark and ready or not, school is just around the corner (one week for us here in Boston). For the next number of weeks I’m going to be focusing on back-to-school treats for you or your kiddos that are packed with brain foods to keep you going throughout the day. I’ll also be focusing on easy weeknight dinner options including one-pot, make-ahead, and crock-pot meals. I’d love to hear from you guys in the comments below of specifics you are looking for!

     

    Let’s start with an easy breezy no-bake snack that is loaded with healthy whole ingredients and of course, healthy fats, protein, and carbs. Sunflower seeds are a powerhouse and contain awesome health benefits. They also make for a nut-free option to bring to schools that don’t allow nuts!

    So what do we have going on here?  Easy, no-bake, nut-free, deliciousand packed with nutrients to fuel you up mid-day.
