Paolo has worked with celebrities including Hilary Duff, Ashley Tisdale and Justin Bartha to name a 
 few, and now he wants to share his healthy living tips with you.

 # 1 sleep at least 7 hours
A good night sleep lower your stress, sharpens your memory and reduce craving for unhealthy food 

#2 choose colorful fruit and veggies 
They are packed with flavonoids and carotenoids  a powerful compounds against inflammation and free radicals

#3 don't skip your breakfast 
A lot of people think they end up saving calories if they avoid breakfast but what they don't realize that they usually over eat later because your body is starved and trying to over compensate for starvation mode

# 4 choose Healthy carbs 
Whole grains , beans , fruit and vegetables are digested slowly , helping you feel full longer and keeping blood sugar and insulin level stable 

#5 Go organic 
Eating organic not only protects you from harmful pesticides and other chemicals - it provides you with more nutrients in every bite

YoCrunch Halloween Giveaway!

YoCrunch has been creating fun, wholesome yogurt combinations since 1985! They started YoFarm Yogurt Company with the mission to create a healthy snack by pairing the smoothest European yogurt recipes with New England’s farm-fresh dairy products.
People went wild for smooth, creamy, fruit-filled YoFarm yogurt. But they sat up at night wondering what would make it even better. Several years (and experiments!) later, they found that yogurt with crunchy granola was the perfect combination. And to keep their 100% natural granola crunchy, they created the dual cup. YoCrunch, as we know it, was born.
Since then, they've had all kinds of new fun, working with  friends at M&M’S®, Nestle®, Reese’s® Pieces®, OREO®, Butterfinger®, Chips Ahoy!®, Mott's® and of course, our favorite granola bakers. YoCrunch is  always innovating too, like how their Greek SuperFruit & Almonds is the first yogurt with toasted almond toppings, and their Pie Parfait has real pieces of crumbly pie crust. And they have made them convenient, so you can take the fun with you wherever, whenever. That's what YoCrunch time is all about.
Your family’s happiness is still near and dear to their hearts, so let us know what you think. Or stay in touch by joining the Crunch Bunch here.
It’s time to have fun with your yogurt. It’s YoCrunch Time!

 What is your favorite YoCrunch? My go to combinations are the 100 Calorie Packs Vanilla with Chocolate Cookie pieces and Strawberry!

 Thanks to MommyParties sponsored by Neon Tiki Tribe I was able to host this party! 

The Neon Tiki Tribe are the Brightest Heroes on Earth! Tribe Members include Tia,Zeke,Mowah and Dar. They use sunglasses that allow them to use their super-powers to defend Earth from the evil Ku Tiki Tribe.

Each child received the following:
1 pair of "super-power" glasses and a Character description print out page, so they can become familiar with Neon Tiki Tribe. These books are filled with things young kids have to face in life that maybe we as parents don't always take the time to discuss with our children ,so this makes it easy to bring up bullying,responsibility and how to become a Thoughtful Intelligent Kind Individual.
