Summer is right around the corner. And with it comes the return of the garden party. Nothing better than a few friends and their families all enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. But catering the affair can be tricky. So below are a few delicious snacks you can make. So clear out your garden with one of these backpack leaf blowers over at verellenhc. Slap-up the bunting. And prepare for an unforgettable party!

Jelly

Quick, simple and easy to make. Jelly is a fantastic snack that anyone can enjoy. With vegetarian alternatives available as well, no one has to be left out. Simple invest in some gelatin sheets, boil them down in whatever flavor juice you want and then pour them into the container. The only thing to note is this snack requires quite some time to set so it is best to prepare it the night before.

Variety Skewers

Skewers are easy to eat and even easier to make. Firstly decide what you want on them. Are they going to be savory or sweet? For savory considering grilling up some meat chunks or roasted veg. Mixed that with some cheese cubes and some marinade, and you have something solid. Or get a mixture of mini puddings, pastries or chocolate and skewer them through to create a lovely dessert option.

Ice Lollies

A perfect way to beat the heat and super easy to make. First thing you need is lollipop sticks and a mold. Once you have that it’s a simple as pouring in your selected flavor juice into the mold and letting it freeze overnight. For some added fun try throwing in different chunks of fruit to bring out the flavor and refresh everyone at the party.

Healthy eating Is a mantra that so many of us wish to adhere to in order to lead a healthy lifestyle however, it can be difficult to find a meal plan that is easy to stick to and really works. When I was a gymnast I had to train hard and eat well, so I learned a lot about healthy eating. Gymnastics by the way is a really great sport for getting fit and I recommend it for everyone. It’s so easy to get started these days since you can get everything you need at Fit2BMom and other great sites like it.. Anyway, back to the healthy meal plan.

 

  • BREAKFAST! It is one of the most important meals of the day which sets you up with plenty of energy to last until lunch. Breakfast is essential to coping with the stressful routine that you mums all experience.
  • Lunch – a great lunch option would be things like omelettes which are high in protein and really do set you up for the rest of the day. Choose your fillings and add some cheese to make for a really tasty meal. Serve with salad for extra nutritional value and voila!
  • Dinner – when it comes to your final meal of the day it can be easy to opt for some hearty comfort food but this can often be full of calories. I would recommend that you make a compromise and make something like a delicious chicken and vegetable pasta. Simply cook off some chicken, add your favourite seasoning, combine with a mixture of vegetables such as onion, tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms which are all very high in nutritional value and mix in with a carton of passata or chopped tomatoes to create a delicious topping for the pasta of your choice.

 

A healthy meal plan doesn’t have to be difficult to stick to and there’s really no reason why your taste buds should suffer at the expense of healthy eating.
