I can hardly believe it, but back to school is in full swing.  This past summer seemed to have flown by and before I knew it, the kids were hopping on the bus for their first day of school. If you’re anything like me, back to school means all sorts of new things.  New after-school activities to get the kids back & forth to, lots of homework (especially for my middle schooler) and a new routine in general. My boys are each in different schools this year, which means different start times for each of them.  It’s definitely been an adjustment, but so far we’re rockin’ it.

With all the changes in our lives, I try to be proactive when it comes to getting sick. Let’s be real, all of our kids get exposed to all kinds of germs while they’re at school. For the first few years my oldest was in school, we were all sick by the middle of October. It was definitely a learning experience and I am determined to help keep the germs away….or at least make sure I am stocked up on some products to make us feel better if we do get sick.

For my family, eating a fresh, healthy breakfast helps us fuel up for the day so that we’re not running on empty. A good breakfast helps us all concentrate and focus all day long. This Easy Honey Pecan Overnight Oats Recipe is a great way to start the morning off right. It’s easy to make and it keeps our tummies full and helps us power through our day.


Easy Honey Pecan Overnight Oats Recipe

Here’s what you need:

  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 1/2 rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoons ground flax
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasalt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup skim milk


Here’s what you do:
1. In a 16oz mason jar, combine all of your ingredients starting with your oats on the bottom.







2. Place your lid back on your Mason jar and shake vigorously.


3. Place in the fridge overnight.
4. Serve hot or cold and enjoy!


Staying healthy is really important to me and now that school is in full swing, I headed over to Walmart to stock up on some essentials to help fight off those pesky germs.


I don’t always have a chance to eat right.  I try, but you know how that goes – I’m a busy mom and sometimes things happen.  That’s why I make sure to take a multi-vitamin every single day.

Centrum® Multi-benefit MultiGummies®for adults:


New Centrum® MultiGummies® for Men and Women are so advanced, they have more Vitamin D3 than any other men’s or women’s gummy^
^Among leading men’s and women’s gummy multivitamins.

Another essential for me is ChapStick®. I never leave home without it.

You can proactively guard against illness/discomfort & prepare by stocking up on these Pfizer products at Walmart, too! How do you stay healthy during back to school time?
