Why Try Kid Friendly Classes?

If you’ve wondered if a Kid Friendly class is for you…check out the honest feed back from a current PowerFull Mom!

“My journey with PowerFull Fitness has not been a long one, but it has been a good one. I’d been thinking about trying yoga and barre classes for a few years but couldn’t figure out how to fit it into my schedule. I didn’t like how I was feeling after having three boys in five years and knew I needed to do something about it, and walking wasn’t enough. In all honesty, I was barely walking, and it definitely wouldn’t be considered a workout. So I guess I’m kind of a newbie to working out.

For Christmas, my husband gave me money to take classes and gave it an expiration date. He knew that if there was no expiration date I would probably not do anything and keep talking about it without actually doing it.

One week in January at MOPS, Laura came in and spoke to us and Leah led us in a short yoga session. I picked up all of the information that Laura had to pass out. I emailed her about a week later and started with Amanda’s kid friendly barre belle and express core tone class. Continue Reading →

Oven Baked Almond Fish Sticks

This was a surprise hit in my house. My girls like fish sticks and the coating on this one ups the nutritional value of the dish. I cut the pieces small for them, almost nuggets. I breaded a sliced block of tofu for myself with the same ingredients (do the tofu first to keep it all vegetarian). Super yummy!

Snack Trays for Dinner

Check out this awesome #reallife  tip from our instructor Leah on how to get dinner on the table, despite the crazy going on!

About once every other week we have a snack tray dinner. Sky is the limit here! It can be a great “clean out the fridge/pantry” meal or more thoughtful. Basically, here’s the plan…take a sheet pan that has sides and cover it with foil (easy clean up!). Fill tray with yummy things. Put tray in the middle of the kitchen table and let people serve themselves and snack away. We often play a game together while having our snack tray meal. Games with a game board don’t work well (tray is in the middle of the table) but we’ve found Zingo, Go Fish, Obstacle, and Splat are family favorites (my kids are 8, 6, and 4). Continue Reading →

Banana Muffins – Allergy Friendly

I know we have a lot of families with various food allergies in the group and so I thought I would share one of my absolute favorite recipes. These muffins are egg and dairy free. Please, don’t be intimidated by the flax. Its super easy to find at any grocery store and its a great egg replacer in baking (you typically use very little per recipe and if you store in the freezer it will last you a good long time!). Also, you do not have to use whole wheat flour but it gives it a nice flavor. All of my littles love these. Typically I bake these on the weekend and use a mini muffin tin so they can be a quick and easy breakfast or as snacks in lunches throughout the week.
