Whole Foods Tip

I was one of the sad few who had to work on Columbus

My husband was off so was left to schlep all 3 kids by himself for their flu shots.  It was a horror show as you can imagine.  He had to pin down the older one; all were screaming before it even started. Awful.

He then took them all to pick up more of those little colored rubber bands for that bracelet craze that is going on now.  I don't even know what it's called, but my son saw his cousin doing it and is now making us bracelets out the ying-yang.

Their final leg of the field trip was to Whole Foods.  
Get It Done Tip: Only within the past year did it come to my attention that Whole Foods gives out free snacks to kids at the customer service desk.  Go there, let them pick out a treat to munch on and then you can shop in peace (if you move super fast!).

I came home to a nice dinner of pork chops crusted in almond flour (paleo essential), roasted butternut squash (from the crop share), fresh sweet potato fries and a tomato salad (final ones from our garden).  It was delish (thank you hubby!).

He also made a pretty elaborate fruit salad and these amazing paleo cookies from the site Eat Drink & Be Hopeful.  No butter, no eggs and we all still loved them.

2 1/2 cups Almond Flour
1/8 cup coconut oil, softened
2 ripe bananas
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I use one small chocolate bar that is cut up in small pieces)

Mix all the dry ingredients together. 
Add in the two mashed bananas, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. 
Fold in chocolate chips. 
Drop batter by tablespoons onto a greased backing dish. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes then allow to cool and serve.
