Whether you're going back to school or your kids are going back to school, everyone has some essentials that are needed to keep the new school year alive and well. And, I'm excited to share mine with you today!
First things first is breakfast. Everyone says breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you might as well have a party in a cup! I'm a huge fan of mango, coconut, and breakfasts that are fast and easy, so this seems like the perfect option!
And the second most important meal of the day of course is COFFEE! Okay maybe it's not a meal, but I have definitely had days where all I've had is coffee. Oh to be a college student! I don't know if I could function correctly without it! Recently Dunking Donuts has been a favorite of mine! So why not pair the coffee and the creamer together to create the most Dynamic of Duos!
For lunches, I'm always so tempted to eat out. I know that it's cheaper and usually healthier to bring a lunch, but something in me just can't do it. But if I do, salad is usually my first choice. Good source of vegetables and protein if you add some pre-cooked chicken. I literally live off of that for lunches most days. So to make taking my lunch a little more fun, I love having a super cute lunch box like this one!
For snacks, I am obsessed with these simply balanced fruit strips! They are delicious and this brand prides themselves in being able to recognize and pronounce all of the ingredients. And that, is something that I really value in my food! They make the perfect afternoon snack or when you're just craving something sweet!
Now, for supper I am a huge lover of pasta! This Ragu Homestyle sauce is seriously so good you guys! And Target makes a super awesome gluten-free pasta that is made with quinoa. It is definitely one of the better gluten-free pastas that I've had! You can also check out my recipe from last week. Dinner for 2 for under $10? Sounds good to me!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Check out all the links for coupons through Target's Cartwheel discounts!
