Great Day Connecticut: Easy Meals & Snacks!

With school back in session, planning those after school meals and snacks are a must! Lifestyle Contributor Limor Suss is here to help us out with some easy meal and snack options!

Hood

Milk is a great way to provide the nutrition needed for bone growth in children and bone health for all - the best is Hood Milk!

Milk is a versatile ingredient that is delicious in all of its forms and Hood Milk keeps your body nourished with the strength for all you do. Whether you enjoy it in a glass or use it to build your smoothie, make a lunchtime soup, or in your morning oatmeal, milk is a rich source of protein that will power you through the day so you can focus on family fun all season long.


Hood Milk updated the design of the LightBlock Bottle and is taking even more measures to protect your family’s milk and maintain its fresh taste. The new bottle enclosures freshness and protects milk against compromised taste brought on by the effects of both natural and artificial light.

It's important to make sure your breakfast is protein packed to fuel up for long school days. The secret ingredient: Hood Cottage Cheese!

For breakfast, Baked Cottage Cheese Egg Muffins are perfect to whip up the night before. Just saute any veggies you like, add some eggs, cheese, and Hood Cottage Cheese into a muffin tin and bake them until they’re done. Simply stick them in the freezer and reheat in the morning for a delicious on-the-go breakfast.

For an afternoon snack, swap greasy potato chips for a refreshing and filling snack like these Cucumber Bites. Just slice your cucumber, add some Hood Cottage Cheese on top and done! It’ll be a crowd pleaser.

You can find out more, and find recipes, about both Hood Cottage Cheese and Hood Milk online. Hood products are available at your local grocery store.




Turkey Roll-Ups


If you're looking for a low-carb but delicious and filing lunch recipe, this Turkey Roll-Up will be your next favorite! We love using APPLEGATE NATURALS® Oven Roasted Turkey Breast because it's tender juicy breast meat that is 100% natural and uses no antibiotics ever!


To make the Turkey Roll-Ups, just Lay down a piece of Applegate’s Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, add hummus and lettuce, tomato and onion. Roll it up and add a toothpick. Click here for the full recipe.



Mason Jar Salads


Whether the kiddos love salad or this is for the adults in your life, mason jars are the greatest solution to non-soggy salads!


Adding the dressing to the bottom of the mason jar prevents the salad from getting soggy as it’s on the bottom and not the top of the salad. If you were to have the dressing at the top, the heavy dressing would “melt” into the salad and make your lettuce (and some of your other ingredients) soggy. Adding the salad to the bottom also prevents having to use another container just for dressing - less soggy salad and less clean up!


In a mason jar, add your dressing first and then the rest of your salad ingredients. When you're ready to eat the salad, mix it directly in the mason jar (depending on how big your salad is) or mix them in another bowl and enjoy! You can find the complete guide and recipes here.
