With so many serious and scary things in our world, it's fun to have something light and silly to distract us sometimes. Food holidays may not be a reason for a bank holiday (although who wouldn't want a day off to celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich day??) but they're fun to think about.
They're also a really great way to get your kids in the kitchen and talking about food. This is especially great for picky eaters. Did you know that exposing your kids to new foods - even if they don't eat them - is a great way to help them build healthy habits? It's true.
Now that being said, we have a lot of sweet food days this week, so I'll stick with my mom's mantra of all things in moderation!

- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love these little energy balls! They're great for lunch boxes, but since I work from home, I love keeping them in the fridge and grabbing one when I go to refill my water bottle.
They're packed with protein and easy to customize to suit your family's tastes and dietary needs.

✔️ Keep your leftovers fresh by using quality airtight containers - these are my favorite.
✔️ Double the recipe on Sunday and use the leftovers on Monday and Tuesday!
✔️ Stock up on fresh local corn and freeze it for later. Check out this post from Jami that will tell you how to freeze corn three ways: blanched, unblanched and whole. It's a great way to save money!
