The latest happenings at Small Bites by Jessica, plus this week’s Link Love and Menu Plan Monday!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! We finally got around to making my Healthier Pumpkin Pancakes on Saturday – the girls helped me out in the kitchen (maybe you caught my Instastory?) and they declared that the pancakes were the best ever because they helped make them! Just goes to show that when kids help in the kitchen they’re more excited to eat what they make! If you’re looking for more fall recipes, check out my updated roundup of 45+ Nutritioulicious Fall Recipes to Feast On!
In case you’re not up on all the daily, weekly, and monthly food holidays, I wanted to share that this week is National School Lunch Week! My girls are only bringing lunch to school this Thursday since they’re off Monday through Wednesday (thanks Columbus Day and Yom Kippur for coming out all on the same week!), but if you’re packing up for your kids don’t forget about my Quick, Easy, & Healthy School Lunch Ideas and Recipes.
Speaking of Yom Kippur, if you’re celebrating, which includes a 25 hour fast, be sure to check out my Healthy Break Fast Guide from 2010. I’ll also mention – don’t overdo it with your pre-fast meal the night before. You can see what we’ll be eating pre-fast in the menu plan below. Scroll on down to check that out and see what articles and recipes I enjoyed around the web last week! Have a wonderful week!
