Organic Feasting with Cascadian Farm for Earth Day ~ Review & Giveaway

    The month of April is almost here! Time to celebrate one of my favorite holidays ~ Earth Day! What exactly is Earth Day? Earth Day was celebrated for the first time in 1970.   Sen. Gaylord Nelson, from California organized national Earth Day to educate Americans about the value of our natural resources and the threatening practices intent on stripping them from the world.

   There seems to be a large green movement,  that is encouraging to me.   I still see so many people who are lost. They know they want to make changes to preserve the earth,  but where do you being?  It's a given to recycle as much as possible. Once you have a recycling system set up for your family, what is the next step?  That step for me was to examine the food my family consumes. So many chemicals, so many ingredients with long names I'm unable to pronounce or fathom what exactly they are.    A simply solution is to seek out organic food. Specifically food bearing the USDA organic seal.  Companies will attempt to fool you with their marketing lingo ~ all natural, hormone free, etc... The only sure bet you aren't getting anything artificial in your food is to look for the USDA organic seal.
 One of my favorite organic brands is Cascadian Farm. When your new to organic foods, its is a challenge to decide what is healthy and acceptable to buy. Let Cascadian Farm take the guess work out of your grocery shopping. When you see the name Cascadian Farm you know you are purchasing high quality organic food! Cascadian Farm offers a large variety of 75+ different products including organic cereals, granola bars, fruit spreads, and frozen fruits and vegetables!
    Breakfast was the first meal I decided to make the switch to go all organic! Cascadian Farm products made it easy peasy, with all of their tasty products! I encourage you to take the first step and  create an all organic feast for your family on Earth Day!  This was my families breakfast today. Saturday mornings are slow for us. I like to put out several healthy options for my kids and let them pick their favorites to create an organic smorgasbord!  I picked up a loaf of organic 100% Whole Wheat Bread from my local bakery for the kids to make toast. Their favorite accompaniment for toast is ~ Cascadian Farm Organic Blackberry Fruit Spread. It is simply delicious.  I also picked up several different organic berries and organic grapes.  Berries are so versatile.  Combined with organic milk to make a refreshing smoothie.  Layered with organic yogurt and Cascadian Farm Organic Oats and Honey Granola to make a yogurt parfait.  My kids even eat granola by the handful,  right out of the box for a healthy snack.  Berries can be very expensive in the off season, so I keep several packages of Cascadian Farm Frozen Fruit in the freezer! On busy mornings, I grab a Cascadian Farm Granola Bar.  My favorite is  Almond Butter Crunchy Granola Bar! Nutty and delicious.....need I say more!! It's the perfect portion size and great fuel to get me through my morning workout! There are many options for your breakfast feast with Cascadian Farm. Celebrate Earth Day and choose ORGANIC!

Cascadian Farm was super generous to provide me with this beautiful basket filled with their products to assist me in creating our organic meal. One lucky reader will also win a Cascadian Farm basket filled with the same goodies pictures above!

                                                   WIN IT!!!
