This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Hass Avocado Board. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Cold Avocado and Cucumber Cream #SaboreaUnoHoy #ad

Summer is coming to end and we start the with the everyday running of the school days. Now the my kids are in school I love to make healthy and well balance lunch using “Good Fats”, you know that are a lot of kinds of fats in our food and I want to bring to you a little awareness in this, over 75% of the fat in fresh avocados is naturally good fat making them a great substitute for foods high in bad (saturated) fat. Avocados are virtually the only fruit that contains monounsaturated fat, and they are sodium, cholesterol and trans-fat free.

Hass Avocados bring the good fats again to the table and you can prepare healthy and delicious meals with this amazing ingredient. The start of fall also brings Latino families the opportunity to enjoy and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and showcase their traditions with friends and family. So many of our traditions are rooted in the food, because nothing is better than a conversation a plate of guacamole, and the family recipes we share. Fresh Avocados play a central role in many Latino recipes and traditional foods.

Unfortunately Latinos also share the issue of higher type2 diabetes rates across our community. Eating well to maintain a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do to lower your risk for type 2 diabetes. Specially if came from a family like mine, where diabetes is on both sides. I grew up looking at my grandmother struggle with the food se eats, and for me it was very important to learn how to help my family to maintain a healthy life style.

HassMeme Series_ ENG-03

In so many ways and because avocados form a huge part in our everyday diet we need it to learn more and more different way to eat it. A lot of the recipes I learn during this process are so delicious and fresh and my hold family was super grateful and happy. Not only we are eating better but we also enjoy our meals more, our visits to the doctor are positives and we change the way we look avocados, now they are part of our healthy life style, a key in our nutrition and of course a delicious one.

Back To The School Routine #FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias

The first day of school is so important in my culture, I can hear my dad calling us in the morning, Arriba, Arriba! Hora de levantarse! And me going directly to the bathroom to take a shower. Moorings were very difficult for me, specially when you have to be at school before 7 am.

Now I do the same with my girls and it is also difficult not to get cuddle in the blankets, specially when is still dark outside. It is a costume the we take showers in the morning, everybody in country do it, specially before school, it helps to the kids to start the day and the go super fresh and ready to learn.

But sometimes is difficult to get into that routine, and having a complete nutritious breakfast is also very important. And to make my mornings very easy I use Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, so easy and delicious to use. To make it more especial I do a Breakfast Care Package, so easy and my daughters love this special gift in the morning. Do don’t have to do this all the time, this is a special first day of school present, just like my mom did for us.

CARE PACKAGE

Is so simple you only need, a small box (I use a cupcake carrier box) tissue paper, cupcake paper cups or small plastic container.
For the breakfast food 1-Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches, 1- Chocolate Milk or Regular Milk, 1/2 of apple in slices.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias
And is simple; just place some tissue paper in the bottom, heat the Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches according to package directions, place in a cupcake cup, and place the apple slices in another cupcake cup. Put everything inside the box, and call your kids for breakfast.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias 2
Remember to use their favorite colores, and make it all fun and don’t forget the hugs and kisses. Jimmy Dean® breakfast sandwiches are delicious, satisfying, high quality breakfast solutions for the perfect start to any morning.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias 4

And of course when they come back from school I highly recommend a delicious State Fair® Corn Dog, this is another way to make the first day the most special day for them. State Fair® Brand produces a variety of delicious corn dogs featuring a signature honey-sweetened cornbread batter. You can find State Fair® Corn Dogs in the freezer section at Walmart.

#FuelForSchool #Ad #Cbias 6And easy way to feed your family in the mornings without all the hassle, and give a Highlight protein, especially for State Fair® but also for Jimmy Dean® products.

You can find all this products and the care package materials at Walmart, another reason why I love shopping there.
