There is something about a donut that catches a child's attention. Is it the sprinkles? Maybe the soft chew? The sweet flavor?

I'll be honest- almost every time our family has donuts from a bakery (which is not often), someone ends up feeling yucky or being hungry 20 minutes later. It looks good, but in the end wasn't worth it. 

Now I make donuts at home to pacify the occasional request. The nice thing is you can control what goes in them, avoiding excessive sugar and oils, and even add ingredients to boost the nutritional value.

Sound like too much work? Nah! I don't have time for yeast, frying, or mile-long recipes. I use quick recipes that I can toss in the oven to bake while I help the kids get ready for school. 

Here's the secret that makes it easy on you, but will have your kids thinking you are AWESOME for making homemade donuts....

If it makes a muffin, it will make a 'donut', just pour the batter in a different pan! 

I recently made these pumpkin donuts that were a hit! I tried it a...

Grocery shopping with kids. I remember those days that I felt like I just ran a marathon (physically and mentally) but it was just a trip to the store. Pushing the cart, trying to fulfill our list, carrying one kid, chasing the other, putting back foods they wanted (but we didn't need)...the struggle is real!

Take these two points and tips into consideration on your next outing. 

TIMING

As they say, "timing is everything." This definitely affects the sanity level of your shopping trip! Especially if you are a mom of a young kiddo, you know what I mean when I say the idea of running in real quick for groceries, is next to impossible

-Don't go hangry (being so hungry you are angry=hangry)! Yes, this applies to kids and parents. Have a meal or snack before shopping. It can prevent dreaded meltdowns and avoids unplanned purchases due to all of the food looking so delicious! 

-Go in the morning when the store isn't as busy. Less people/cart traffic can keep you on track. Morn...

Did you know there is a distinct difference between a nutritionist and a Registered Dietitian (RD)? There are so many people who like to share their opinions about nutrition, but are they valid? Maybe they are selling a line of diet products or just giving an interpretation of what they read online. If you see someone calling something a 'super food' they are likely not a dietitian, instead trying to sell something. Eating a variety of foods is the best way be nourished, knowing there is no one food that is a cure-all. Dietitians go through extensive education and training to assure they provide science-based nutrition advice that is reliable.

Here is a quick overview of what it takes to become a Registered Dietitian:

-Minimum 4-year bachelor degree in Dietetics 

      In my biased opinion, K-State has a fabulous Dietetics program ;)

-Complete 1200 hours of supervised practice through a dietetic internship

-Pass a national exam -once passing, you...
