Vida Grains Review & More...

 
I got to try this fantastic line of products called Vida Grains. In my package I received 1 package of each flavor, a recipe card for each individual flavor as well as serving suggestions, a pamphlet on the products, and a business card!
 
 
 Vida Grains are a delicious superfood supplement. They come in three flavors, Savory Fiesta, Morning Glory, and Naked Cereal. They are sodium and sugar free, gluten free, cholesterol free, high in protein, fibre, omega 3 & 6, zinc, calcium, folic acid, iron, and more! They are fantastic in all your everyday meals. I tried the Morning Glory in my oatmeal, which was delicious. The Savory Fiesta in with my rice, so good! And the Naked Cereal in my pancake mix, the kids devoured them and had no idea that I added so many healthy ingredients!
 
 
 
If you are looking to incorporate healthy ingredients into your meals without changing what you eat, Vida Grains is the right choice for you! For more recipes, contact information, and nutritional information visit www.vidagrains.com .
 
I wanted to make a centerpiece for my dining room table today, I love having a nicely decorated house but find it hard to do with little ones and a strict budget! So what I did is make some play clay.
 
 
 
Homemade Play Clay
 
4 cups flour
1 cup table salt
1 1/2 cups water
 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together and knead for 5 minutes. You may need to add more water or more flour until you get the consistency of playdough. You can divide into portions and dye with food coloring if you like or bake and paint the finished pieces.
 
2. Mold your shapes. Make whatever you feel like having, plates, bowls, cups, bracelets, beads. The possibilities are endless. Then bake for one hour or until hard.
 
That's it. Pretty simple. I learned that for some reason making hand prints and foot prints doesn't really work with this stuff. They will poof up like pillows. I tried to make a hand print of my two oldest and a foot print of my baby and they came out really silly. We also made rings, bracelets, and of course my funky centrepiece. Now I need to get some paint and paint these. They look and smell edible but please don't eat them, they taste horrible.
 
 
 
 
I used a baking pan to get the shape I wanted for my centrepiece, I lined it with cut out butterflies and then added a layer of dough and pressed firmly around the edges, like making a pie crust.
 
 
 
I made each of my oldest kids a ring with the first letter of there names.  
 
 
And my littlest sat and played in his Exersaucer and watched us make our creations.
