National Waffle Day 8/24 - Recipes, Breakfast Tips by Joy Bauer, Van's Giveaway Pack & More

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

National Waffle Day is August 24th! This is a fun and easy food to celebrate. Grab a box of Van's waffles and enjoy.

Waffles are my toddler's favorite breakfast food and a frequent go-to for us on busy school day mornings. With school starting next week, I know I could use some easy new and creative ways to get the kids fed in the morning. But, it isn't just about them "eating something"; I want them to feel satisfied and have a balanced healthy breakfast. I struggle in this area at times because let's face it mornings can be a bit hectic. I am usually balancing work, getting dressed, serving breakfast, packing school lunch along with getting 4 boys out the door that are dressed with teeth brushed and hair combed. Phew...that is a challenge that I am sure many of you can relate to. As a matter of fact, Van’s recently completed a study of 1,000 moms, asking how they experience mornings. Check out the highlights and infographic from their findings here.

Registered Dietitian Joy Bauer, previously featured on the Today Show, partnered with Van’s to help make mornings just a little bit easier for moms. Joy, a mom of three, has created three 5-minute waffle recipes that not only provide a wholesome, filling start to the day, but are also perfect for picky eaters. Amen to that! Sometimes I feel like I am the short order cook. Look at how cute these Waffle Happy Faces are...adorbs. I think my kids would love to eat these. Get the recipes here.

Joy’s Morning Hacks
  1. Keep a stable of go-to items in your pantry and refrigerator to provide nutritious, quick options. Low-fat Greek yogurt, eggs, nut butters, berries, bananas and grapes are all great on top of Van’s 8 Whole Grains waffles—super easy, kid-friendly and filling. 
  2. Think ahead. If you plan breakfast the night before, you’ll eliminate 50 percent of the stress during the morning rush.No one expects moms to whip up from-scratch waffles or pancakes on a chaotic weekday—keep it simple, decide what you’re serving the night before, and you can spend less than five minutes on a filling, wholesome, delicious breakfast in the a.m. 
  3. Presentation is important. Anything that says “fun” is appealing for younger kids. If you take a Vans whole grain waffleand use good-for-you ingredients to create a happy face on top, you’ll have happy eaters. Kids can help with assembly—let them choose their toppings or match their waffle face to their mood. You can use blueberries for eyes and raspberries, cherries or a kiwi slice for a mouth. You’ll be smiling, too, as you watch how quickly they gobble it up! 
  4. Make your morning meal a triple threat. Since parents tend to have full control over what their kids eat for breakfast, it’s important to make it count. The winning combination includes ample fiber and protein, while minimizing sugar. That helps stabilize blood sugar and provides fuel and sustenance to make it through the morning routine. 
  5. Plan “me” time. Be strategic and sneak some breaks while parenting— whether that means a walk with a sleeping child in a stroller or timing kids’ screen time to coincide with your workout. Every mom knows that a little “me” time makes you a better parent!
    One (1) lucky MyVegasMommy reader will win a Van's Prize Pack: branded tote bag, water bottle, coupons and snack sack. Winner must provide mailing address, no PO Boxes. US residents 18 yrs or older. Contest ends 9/4/16 at 11:59 PM PST.

    Good Luck!

    Disclosure: I received samples of Van's products in order to conduct my review. My opinions are my own.

    Greater Movie - An Inspiring Story Releases 8/26

    This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

    Greater arrives in theaters everywhere August 26th. It follows the incredible true story of Brandon Burlsworth, #77, who is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon was a true champion and role model for so many. Brandon truly re-defines the word "champion".

    With football starting soon, this is perfect timing for you to take the kids to this family friendly movie. It is for all the young athletes, new athletes, struggling athletes and dreamers out there (and their parents). Youth sports can positively impact and build character in their lives. I know that my kids' have been fortunate to work with some great coaches that have encouraged them and I witness many of others dedicate themselves to their teams.

    Brandon (played Chris Severio) had one dream – to play for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Unfortunately, Brandon was an awkward kid who lacked the physical prowess to make the team. He was written off by coaches and ridiculed by his fellow teammates. Undeterred, Brandon continued to show-up for practice. He woke up before anyone else and worked harder than anyone else, until his determination paid off. Not only was he given an opportunity to walk-on and play football – he became one of the greatest players on the field, and was drafted to the Indianapolis Colts.

    Here are three lessons from Brandon’s life hold the key to building character and finding your destiny.

    • Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t: Brandon was not the most physically gifted athlete. He struggled with being overweight, wasn’t naturally graceful, was a pretty unlikely candidate to be a college football All-American and then drafted into the NFL. He was able to do it all because he refused to listen to those who doubted him or his abilities. He always believed in himself, knew that through hard work and dedication, he could be anything he wanted to be. The only thing standing between you and your dreams is how passionately you’re willing to produce them.

    • Dedicate yourself to something greater: It’s no coincidence the film of Brandon’s life is called GREATER. As a Christian, he believed he was called to be a man of integrity and honor off the field as well as on – he dedicated himself, first and foremost, to God. Your faith can strengthen you, and like Brandon you can choose to be a role model on and off the field.

    • Help others: Brandon Burlsworth was a giver. He didn’t just play football, or live his life, focused exclusively on his wants. He made others’ needs a top priority – family, teammates, friends and fans. As he dug in deep to reach his potential as an athlete and a man, he encouraged and supported those who were taking that same journey alongside him. Brandon didn’t just make himself better; he made others better, too, because he was intentional about finding ways to help them.
