Little Green Pouch {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I was joking with my husband the other day that it feels like most of my “modern” pregnancy and infant parenting choices are not so modern anymore.  I beg for an epidural when I walk through the door of L&D rather than birthing naturally, I nurse for only a couple of months before switching to formula and bottles, I prefer to have my babies in their own cribs without any blankets or crib bumpers rather than in bed with me, I use disposable diapers, and the list goes on.  The only thing that I’ve done with my boys that is semi-“modern” is make my own baby food.  I LOVED being able to throw fruits and vegetables into the Magic Bullet and come out with great, fresh baby food in just a couple of seconds.  One of my main problems, though, was transporting it and feeding them when we were out of the house.  Frankly, I think this is concern even with store-bought food — it’s just not easy to find a suitable high chair substitute and then to use a spoon with the little containers.

Meet my new favorite modern product, Little Green Pouch!!  The Little Green Pouch is a reusable food pouch that can be filled with healthy foods of your own choosing, that can save money, and that is a green alternative to disposable food pouches.

pouch 4 pack

I absolutely love these Little Green Pouches!  While their use for baby food is obvious, they are easily used for older kids as well.  I can’t even begin to count the number of times my four-year-old asks for sugar-filled Gogurt or another pricey applesauce pouch after he’s completely downed one in record time.  We’ve used them for our boys (22 months and 4 years old) in the past couple of days, and they work like a charm.

openA friend of mine mentioned that she’s freezed food in them so they can thaw out throughout the day and be ready for lunches or snacks on the go.  These would be perfect to keep food cold in lunch boxes at school or day care.

And, another one of my modern-but-not-modern choices is to use the dishwasher instead of washing by hand, so thank heavens that these Little Green Pouches are dishwasher-safe!

I’m trying to make sure to fit nicely in a little red number for this weekend. Cousin’s wedding reception. You know. Lots of family I haven’t seen in ages. At a very fancy location in the city. Anyway, this magazine in my kitchen is not helping with the prospect of that red dress. I’m sooo hungry and could really go for a cheeseburger and fries right about now. After all one can only eat so many baby carrots in one day before her nose starts to twitch. Must step away from the magazine… Help me! Pry it away from my starving little hands! Alright it’s not quite that bad. But I really could use some help on some healthy snack ideas. Ready? Go! You know just to get me through the rest of the week. *wink*

Forty-one.  That’s the number of baby food meals I made over the weekend.

 

It will last Ruby roughly 13.7 days.  Give or take.

Then I’ll just start the process all over again.

You know what I’ll be doing in about 10 days…

 

Do you make your own baby food?  If you do then feel free to share away!  I could use some new recipes to mix it up a bit.  🙂

What are you having for breakfast???

With Banjo, and now with Ruby, we used Dr. Brown’s bottles.  Their bottles are great at controlling the air pressure when a baby drinks.  When we were told that they helped to reduce ear infections my Audi said they were a must.  🙂   But did you know that Dr. Brown’s has more than just bottles???  Yep.  Lots and lots more!

Recently Dr. Brown’s sent us some of the new items from their Designed to Nourish line:

The food storage pods, freezer tray, and Dots storage labels are wonderful for the baby food we make for Ruby!

And…

The Snack-A-Pillar is perfect for holding snacks in the diaper bag.

This week Dr. Brown’s is giving away the Food Storage Pods & Stackable Freezer Tray, My Dots Storage Labels, and Snack-A-Pillar Stackable Snack & Dipping Cups to one very lucky winner!

I love to throw parties.  Now I’m not much of a dinner party kind of thrower.  Those get too complicated for me.  Too much planning and too much food.  I like to throw snack kind of parties.  Oh and dessert parties aren’t bad either!  😉  My group of friend and I here in the Lou like to get together about once a month for a girl’s night.  Typically every girl’s night involves some type of food.  Usually it’s dessert food, because we are ladies and that’s what ladies like to splurge on.  Am I right?  But…  A dessert that we have never had at our girl’s night is this yumminess:

 I have a feeling that is going to have to change very soon!

I mean seriously…

My mouth is watering just looking at these images!

Yep I definitely am going to tell the girls we need to have a fondue party!

Shellie Eldredge is an Independent Consultant for Velata and she’s the go to girl for all things fondue.  How could anyone go wrong with one of these dandy looking fondue warmers:

They are colorful, functional, and there’s a style to fit any decor.  Great for yourself or gift giving… You gotta contact Shellie to order and while you are at it you can even book to host a party!  I’m telling you this looks like a really fun way to fondue.

And…

Hello Belgian Chocolate!
