V8 Veggie Blend and BelVita Bites

This is the year I’m putting my self to work hard, to start my day with the most nutrition breakfast and to be in complete control of my heath.
One of the most effective ways to do it is by setting new and realistic goals, for example, I try very hard to keep myself busy enough in the mornings, so I don’t spend a lot of time in the couch watching T.V and let me tell you it is so difficult for me to do it because I’m completely alone in the mornings.
But with the help of my new breakfast routine I have the energy and I started to walk an hour every day.
So easy I take V8 Veggie Blend in a cup and the delicious BelVita Bites with me and some music in my phone and I’m charge for a healthy walk.
I try so many things in the past and none of them work, until now. Incorporating the good balance of the V8 Veggie Blend with the BelVita Bites is bean a winner in my morning routine.

Breakfast Routine

Sweet Corn Bread With Bacon

Hello today I’m partnering with Farmland® Bacon and recreated one of the most delicious     corn bread you ever have, sweet, smoky thanks to the flavor the only Farmland® Bacon because Farmland® bacon is slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, Farmland® has taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique–a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite.

I love how the different flavors combine give this dish the perfect bite and it is of course just what you need when making easy food for game day. A little bit goes a long way and because am using top quality Farmland® bacon it is the perfect compliment to my corn bread.

This corn bread is a classic dessert in my house, and so easy to make, I know I said dessert but if you see the list of ingredients below, you will notice the most of them are sweet, so what a great way to make this a different option to watch a game? Well just by adding the bits of Farmland® Bacon was enough.

My house smell so good while cooking and my family was so eager to eat the I hide most of the Farmland® bacon to make my recipe, it was really funny.

I’m sure you will enjoy making, tasting and smelling this recipe, and why not? Everything’s better with Farmland® Bacon.
