    9 Healthy Cereals That Kids Will Love

    It’s hard to find a cereal that tastes good and is healthy. I have brought cereals and had to throw them away because my kids didn’t like them. I decided to create this list of cereals to help moms avoid the same mistakes that I made. 

    1. Cascadian Farms-Fruitful O’s
      Organic
      100% Whole Grain
      8g Sugar 

    2. Cascadian Farms-Berry Vanilla
      Organic
      100% Whole Grain
      7g sugar

           3. Moms Best-Crispy Cocoa Rice
               13g sugar (a bit higher in sugar) but not a lot of chemicals 

           4.  Kashi-Dark Cocoa Karma
                100% Whole Grain
                9g sugar
                6g fiber 
               Good Source of iron

            5. Kashi-Berry Crumble 
                Organic
                7g sugar
                 3g fiber

            6. Kashi- Honey Cinnamon
                Organic
                 7g sugar
                 3g fiber

             7. Kashi-Sunshine
                 100% Whole Grain
                 7g sugar
                 4g fiber

             8. Annie-Berry Bunnies
                 100% Whole Grain
                 8g sugar
                 80mg calcium

             9. Annie-Fruity Bunnies
                 100% Whole Grain
                 8g sugar

    My kids have tried all of these cereals and love them. They have organic ingredients but remind of my childhood favorite like frosted flakes and Trix. With the onset of kids developing diabetes I want to make sure my kids are eating real ingredients and not a lot of sugar. 

    Have you tried any of these cereals? Do you have any other recommendations?

    Review: Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring

    Thanks to Mazda I was provided the 2019 Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring to test drive. As always, all opinions are my own.

    Last month me and my husband celebrated our eleven year anniversary. We didn’t leave NYC we stayed local and decided to make it a date night. To celebrate we got to test out the 2019 Mazda Miata Grand Touring model. This car is kid free proof,even though they wanted to come but it’s only a 2 seater (sorry kids). My 7 year old son said Mommy why drive such a small car like this. Because the car is so small it takes some getting use to but once you get over how everything around you is so big it’s smooth sailing.

    We went to the Hip Hop Restaurant Beatstro which is a great restaurant for comfort food with a hip hop vibe  (so glad we no longer have to travel to Manhattan for great food).

    What makes this car so special that my husband loves is the sports car feel and the retractable rooftop. We took the car around the Bronx and received many compliments.

     

    Some of the specs include:

    • Push Button ignition
    • BOSE AM/FM 9 Speaker
    • 7″ Color touch-screen display
    • Advanced keyless entry system
    • Heated front seats
    • Rearview Camera

    The price point of the Mazda MX-5 Grand Touring comes in at $34,410 (amazing price)!

    Tori Kelly, Hiding Place: Album Review

    Recently, I got the opportunity to review Tori Kelly’s new album Hiding Places. I absolutely love the title because it already shows she is ready for transparency. It’s a reminder that God wants to go into those hidden places of the heart to expose the things that are not like him.

    On this album she collaborates with Kirk Franklin (who also co-wrote), Hamiltones to bring you a soulful and jazzy album about God’s love. May favorite song is Psalm 42:

    there’s a quiet place that gives me peace when I’m alone with you
    there’s a hiding place
    your Spirit’s always there when I’m confused
    only you can purify
    all this world won’t ever satisfy
    my heart it cries
    as the deer pants for the water
    so my foul, needs you Lord
    we’re thirsty God you’re the living water
    and my soul, needs you Lord
    I need you Lord, need you Lord
    I’m a stranger here, thirsty cause I know it’s not my home
    like a desert here, I need your living Word for these dry bones
    Jesus fill us up again
    with your presence flowing deep within
    new life begins
    quench our hearts
    & fill this space with
    heaven like a flood
    Holy One rain
    down on us with
    Your consuming love

    This L.A.-based singer/songwriter honors her deepest musical passion and delivers an R&B infused, infectiously melodic take on classic gospel album. She has teamed up with Kirk Franklin on this one, and the first single features him. Tori Kelly was the 2016 Grammy Award nominee for Best New Artist.

    Tori doesn’t fail to capture us with her beautiful vocals. Kirk Franklin does a great job at co-writing these songs my only problem is that I wanted to hear more.

    You won’t be disappointed you can purchase her songs here
