Butcher’s Bone Broth Organic Chicken Broth
No need to go through the process of making your own broth- which is time consuming during the hectic back to school season! I tried the Butcher’s Bone Broth instead! Paleo and Keto friendly! $80 per 8-pack of 24 oz cartons.
Never frozen, always fresh Butcher’s Organic Chicken Broth is made simply to let the ingredients’ true flavors to shine through. Made from just organic bones, organic carrots, and filtered water, Butcher’s Organic Chicken Bone Broth is an easy-to-cook-with premium cooking ingredient and a nutritious standalone drink. Each bottle is slowly simmered for 24 hours to extract as much from the bones as possible, resulting in a broth that is packed with 21% daily value of protein per serving and a dense and “jello” like texture due to the high amounts of gelatin and collagen.

They have two separate sides, so if you’re planning for a day out or sending snacks with the kids to school, you can send two separate ones without worry they will mix.

siggi’s is a wonderful, healthy item to have on hand to throw in a school lunchbox, have on hand for an afternoon snack, or pair with dinner to add some extra nutrition! At siggi’s, they make delicious yogurt products with not a lot of sugar and simple ingredients. Their products are based on Scandinavian dairy traditions, such as skyr, the traditional Icelandic yogurt. Their products don’t contain any of those dreadful artificial sweeteners, so I can feel good about offering it to my kids, and enjoying some for myself! Find siggi’s near you at the link below.
Iconic Protein Drink
Let’s face it. Once the kids go back to school the days are filled with carpool, sports practices and games, and other fun, but time consuming activities. Sometimes us moms and dads spend so much time rushing around getting everyone else ready, that we forget to fill our tanks and give our bodies what they need to fuel themselves. That is where these Iconic Protein Drinks will be a lifesaver for me on busy mornings to get the protein I need to start the day and also taste so delicious that I don’t even realize that it’s not a fancy drink from a coffee shop! I love the café latte flavor, and I pour it over ice because I like it extra cold. It is delicious! There are 6 flavors in all to choose from, and besides being full of protein, they are only 130 calories, so you still have room to enjoy other things throughout the day without feeling like you drank all of your calories instead!
