Ok, I know I’m way behind on my photo a day project but that’s just what happens when you have a sick kid at home.  I managed to finally get the photos I have taken off the camera today so now I’m only a few days behind!

My daughters “ballerina” dress.
I have no idea what she was trying to build with her lunch….
Well in this case fingers….

  1. Very nice! I get a kick out of the building shot. It's funny how kids really don't care if they rest their feet smack dab in the center of their plates while they are eating!

Fuel Your Summer With Kellogg’s Vector – Giveaway (CAN 08/24)

Fuel Your Summer With Kellogg’s Vector – Giveaway (CAN 08/24)

How is your summer going? Have you been making the most of the warm weather by getting out and getting moving? Summer always seems so short here in Canada that I think most of us try our best to make the most out of it. The most common answer I get these days when I ask people how their summer is going is “Busy!”

Generally speaking, busy is good. I know for us busy means we are out doing things our family loves. We are camping, fishing, going for bike rides. When we’re not working of course. It can be a struggle to get in a lot of quality, summer family time when you still need to earn a pay cheque. But we all do our best and make it work. When you are feeling a little stretched out (even in the name of fun) it’s really important to remember to take care of yourself. There are a few simple things you can do to make sure you have the steam you need to keep moving this summer – Get adequate sleep, stay hydrated and eat well.

How do you stay fueled? While a balanced diet is essential to good health I know that I personally need a good dose of protein (which of course is vital to a balanced diet) in the mornings to keep me focused and satisfied until lunch time. During the week I generally am eating breakfast at my desk and a good protein bar is usually my breakfast of choice.

Some people who have breakfast on the go (or at their desk like me) like to get their protein in shake form but that’s just not for me. Even if a shake is technically as “filling” it doesn’t leave me feeling that way. I like to savour my food. The Kellogg’s Vector Protein Bars are one of my favorite ways to get in a “working” breakfast. These bars are chewy and crunchy with an awesome sweet and salty flavour and they contain 11 grams of protein.

The Vector Protein bars come in two varieties – Peanut and Mixed nut and I love them both equally. One of the reasons these protein bars are one of my favorites, besides the fact they taste great, is that they only contain 8 grams of sugar in each bar. Many of the other protein bars on the store shelves are so full of sugar which is just not something I want in my breakfast.

As much as I love my blast of protein in the morning, there are times when you need more than that to fuel your day, especially if you have a particularly active day ahead of you. There are those days when you need to make sure you are also getting the carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals you need to perform your best. That’s where the Kellogg’s Vector Energy Bars come in. These bars are the perfect on the go energy boost. Each bar contains 9 grams of protein, 32 or 35 carbohydrates (depending on the variety) and 24 vitamins and minerals.

Sometimes there is just nothing quite as satisfying as a good bowl of cereal with cold milk to start your morning. Of course there is no rule that cereal is only for breakfast. It can also make for a tasty and satisfying meal anytime of the day.

The Kellogg’s Vector Real Replacement cereal is packed full of protein, vitamins and minerals and the carbohydrates essential to fuel physical activity. Pour on a little skim milk and you have yourself an awesome bowl of energy! It tastes great all on its own but I also love to throw in a few fresh berries to make it extra yummy.

The latest addition to the Vector line up is the new Honey Almond Flavour Vector Granola. One of the things I love about the granola is that there are so many ways to enjoy it. You can eat it as a sweet, crunchy snack right out of the bag, in a bowl with some milk, use it to top your favourite yogurt – the options are endless. Each 1/2 cup serving has a whopping 20 grams of protein!
