I was just emailing with a friend this morning that I am travelling like a mad man this month! Between my family coming to New York for the Children’s ENK Trade Show and going to Africa next Friday, I feel like I am always on the go…and well, hungry without anything yummy to snack on. It is hard to stay healthy when you are a mom on the go, especially with kids or taking care of kids. Here are 2 great no brainer healthy snack recipes that I love to whip up and have on hand in 5 minutes!

On-the-Go-Trail Mix Recipe
Prep Time: 5 minutes


  • 1.5 cups mixed dried fruit of your choice (i.e. cranberries, apricots, cherries, raisins, or apples)
  • 1 cup pecans
  • ½ cup candy-coated chocolate


  1. In a medium bowl, combine dried fruit, pecans and chocolate
  2. Divide among 6 re-sealable plastic bags
  3. Grab and go!

Oven Dried Blueberries Recipe
Prep Time: 2 hours
This recipe is great to add to yogurt, ice cream or even just a little baggy to snack on.


  • 1 cup blueberries (for 1-2 servings…just increase # of blueberries per # of people you are trying to serve)
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. Heat oven to 225 degrees.
  2. Toss blueberries with honey in a bowl.
  3. Bake berries on a parchment-lined baking sheet until shriveled but still supple, about 2 hours.
  4. Let cool.

Note: Berries are good up to a month in an airtight container or Tupperware!

Director Guy Ritchie has a 3rd kiddo on the way with his girlfriend of a year, model Jacqui Ainsley, 29. This will be Jacqui’s first child. Ritchie, 42, is already a dad to sons Rocco, 10, and David, 5, with ex-wife Madonna. What could be cute for the good-looking prego couple’s baby on the way? We think this Rabbitmoon “Empress” Collection side ruffle bubble would be delicious for a little girl.

This vibrantly-patterned ruby pink bubble is constructed of stretch cotton with panels of modern frilly ruffle trims that are soft to the touch. Contrast light blue floral pattern flutter sleeves and precious ruby pink flower buttons on the chic empire waist add style. Back and underneath diaper snaps for easy dressing.



What if it is a little boy? This Rabbitmoon “Tour” Collection short sleeve bodysuit would be cozy for their baby to be.

This ultra soft short sleeve blue bicycle print bodysuit, contrasted with blue and brown retro shaded stripes, is designed for everyday comfort and style. Soft blue rib neckline and matching sport shoulder snaps make for an easy fit. Mix and match with pants for a tucked-in look. Underneath diapers snaps for easy dressing.
