Back-to-school season is here so today I’m teaming up with BabbleBoxx to highlight a few of my favorite brands that I always like to have on hand. Before we start, I wanted to talk a little bit about Feeding America.
September is Hunger Action Month which is a time when the Feeding America network and the national public come together to raise awareness and inspire action to help people facing the impossible choices of hunger. Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice.
For millions of people in America, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It’s a choice between food and other crucial needs like medicine, electricity, or childcare. Choose to end hunger and take action HERE. It’s such an amazing cause and one you should consider donating to!
Now onto sharing a few favorite food brands I love. Let’s break it down…
We love using these tahinis on all of our favorite dishes from veggies and salads to smoothies and hummus. You can use it as a dressing, in dips and spreads. It’s also the perfect mayo replacement, and works on desserts and shakes too! The possibilities are seriously endless.
They make a few different flavors including our favorites which are the Mighty Sesame Organic Tahini and the Mighty Sesame Harissa Tahini. Both are a great source of protein and are so versatile. Just give it a mighty shake and then squeeze. Lately I have been using it in dressings for my salads. So delish!
One thing I love about this brand is that vegetables are the first and primary ingredient in every Veggies Made Great product. Whether the vegetables that make up the product are hidden, like the zucchini and carrots in the Double Chocolate Muffins, or the highlight of the product like in the spinach and roasted peppers in the Superfood Veggie Cakes, Veggies Made Great makes eating your veggies delicious.
Their veggie-rich products meet the growing consumer demand for healthy plant-based food and all items are gluten-free, nut-free, high in protein, and low in calories. They are also made with only clean and simple ingredients.
Veggies Made Great are the perfect choice for on-the-go breakfasts, packing in a lunchbox, or a quick afternoon snack. Our two favorite flavors are the Spinach Egg White Fritatas and also their Double Chocolate Muffins. You can find all Veggies Made Great products in the freezer section of your local grocery store.

3. MINUTE RICE
Minute Ready to Serve cups are a fast and easy mealtime solution that helps you spend less time cooking and more time enjoying all the small, wonderful moments that happen in life. They are ready in 90 seconds or less and are a great choice for easy, on-the-go breakfasts lunches, or a quick side for dinner.
Minute Ready to Serve cups allows you to eat from the cup while taking care of other tasks. They are perfectly portioned to provide just the right amount of carbs for all-day energy, without overeating. The cups are also BPA-free and 100% recyclable.
Two of our favorites include Minute Ready to Serve White Rice and Minute Ready to Serve Brown & Wild Rice. Both are household staples that I always like to have on hand for convenience. We usually serve ours at dinner time as a side dish with veggies and a protein or dress it up in a rice bowl.
Who doesn’t love a Mexican Rice Bowl!? Here’s what I like to add to mine: chopped lettuce, fresh corn, diced tomatoes, black beans, shredded cheddar cheese, and of course Minute Ready to Serve Rice. Such a great meal for lunch or dinner!
There is honestly nothing quite like a stack of fluffy pancakes and King Arthur mixes makes it super easy to make these loveable staples at home. Simply add water and you’re on your way! Also their convenient, resealable and recyclable pouch makes it easy to portion just the right amount.
We love King Arthur Baking Company products because of their high quality ingredients. Some of our favorites include the Buttermilk Pancake Mix and the Confetti Pancake Mix. These will make the perfect addition to your mornings.
The Confetti Pancake Mix makes it easy to give an ordinary day a special start. These fluffy, tender pancakes have colorful all-natural sprinkles with no artificial ingredients or synthetic colors. They are baked right inside for a fun surprise with every bite. With only 5 grams of added sugar, it’s a breakfast you can feel good about.
