You may think that us food bloggers spend all day cooking from scratch everyday of the week. False. Even foodies like myself need some go-to products and simple recipes to make life easier. Between raising two young children, working, doing household chores, school activities, family time, and everything in between, I need ways to save time in the kitchen!
Not only do I have a great recipe today for a Kale Pomegranate Salad, I am also sharing a day of family friendly meal planning.
You have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! A hot breakfast can get you motivated and filling the kiddos bellies before school is important so they can focus on their schoolwork. Make a batch of Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix with some fresh blueberries or mini chocolate chips sprinkled in. Just add water and cook according to box directions.
You can even freeze pancakes to reheat in the mornings. Make a big batch and place in the freezer on a baking sheet. Once they are frozen, stack them and place in a freezer bag. To reheat, place stack of pancakes into the microwave for 2 minutes!
Pomegranate Kale Salad
Time for the Pomegranate Kale Salad. This salad is so easy to put together and tasty (even the kids enjoyed). We are making 4 today and can easily make less or more depending on your needs.
Begin by washing all your fruits and vegetables. Place equal amounts of kale into each Rubbermaid container and chop the apple. Place 1/4 cup of both pumpkin seeds and feta cheese on top. Remove the pomegranate arils from the pomegranate and toss 1/4 cup worth of pomegranate arils on each salad. Spray with Simply Beyond® Pomegranate Organic Fruit Vinegar. Seal the lid and place a pack of Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes on top to pack in the work/school bags.
To easily remove the arils (seeds) from your pomegranate, cut into quarters and place into a bowl of water. Remove the seeds with your hands in the bowl of water.
