The holidays. That wonderful time of year when everything is bright and sparkly. And rushed and loud and busy. Sure, we all have this perfect plan that starts several months before the holiday season but keeping up with life just seems to always bump that schedule right off its tracks for me. I’m excited to be partnering with BabbleBoxx again to share a whole box full of products that will help you feel holiday ready for hosting and toasting. Meal planning, snacks, some healthy indulgences for mommy and even germ control – this hosting and toasting BabbleBoxx is just what my December needed.

The box full of surprises arrived at my doorstep and in the middle of a very busy December day, I couldn’t wait to dive in. The box has products that we already are big fans of and a few new to our home too. Everything included are items we will be using this month and surely will come in handy with guests and the busyness of the holiday season.

Simplehuman calls their products tools for efficient living. Simple, functional and built to last, the Simplehuman Foam Cartridge Sensor Pump & Soaps will help keep all those germs under wraps this holiday season. With so many guests and friends coming in and out of our home, touch free foam soap is the must have you didn’t realize you needed. We’re not talking a fancy bathroom you’d find at the holiday company dinner, we’re talking at your kitchen sink. The click-in cartridge system makes refills fast, easy and totally mess free. Even better, the pump is rechargeable with a single charge lasting up to three months. The wide range of soaps and scents will have you loving this product all year long.

The world’s largest handler of dried fruits including prunes, apricots, mangos and more now has several distinct Pacific Tropicals products. The toasted coconut chips and dried green mango are excellent additions to recipes and salads. They also are delicious all by themselves. We loved the Thai Coconut and Philippine Green Mango mixed together to remind us of favorite family vacations. Keeping easy snacks on hand is important during the busy holiday season. The resealable bags are a great healthy snack option tossed right into my mommy bag for those moments when my kiddos are in the backseat asking for ice cream.

Our family is already familiar with Annie’s Homegrown because both my daughters love those cute cheddar bunny crackers. The organic chicken noodle soup  is packed with egg noodles, organic chicken and yummy veggies like carrots and celery.  Keep this on your pantry shelf to add to your meal plan on those busiest weeknights. The soup is made with goodness and no artificial flavors, synthetic colors, preservatives, MSG, yeast extract or antibiotics added. Top your Annie’s Organic Soup with crunchy, cheesy bite-sized Cheddar Bunnies!

Busy weeknights usually mean our family is scrambling for dinner plans. And by our family, I mean me. The holiday season has plenty of opportunities to indulge at parties and other events so I like to plan ahead for meals as much as possible. Wild Garden Quick Marinade + Heat and Serve Pilaf helped me put dinner together quickly and our family avoided another night dining out this week. In just 90 seconds I had a side dish to pair with the marinated chicken cooking in the oven. Easily impress your family and friends with the Quick Marinades and Heat and Serve Pilafs by turning your average meals into simmering exotic Mediterranean dishes with just a few simple steps. Wild Garden products can be found at many national grocery stores.

Now that you have your meal plan started, you need an easy to clean pan that allows cooking with less oil. The GreenPan Lima collection is excellent for demanding chefs as well as the average home cook.  The classic pots and pans made of hard anodized aluminum and have stainless steel handles. They can be used in the oven or on the stovetop. GreenPan is the pioneer in Healthy Ceramic NonStick Cookware. Confession – my husband likes fancy pots and pans but I don’t give them the same love he does because I’m always rushed when cooking. Great news for mommas like me, the GreenPan offers crispy frying and evenly browning because of excellent heat conduction. Also, the ThermolonTM ceramic non-stick coating will remain intact and guarantees professional performance.

When my oldest daughter was younger I insisted on making our own smoothies every morning. Excellent and healthy except as our schedule got busier and busier, I slowly started turning to other breakfast items as quick alternatives. With Ella’s Kitchen you can give your child the best fruits blended together in a quick mess free pouch. Baby sister loves to squeeze the pouches because she can do it all by herself and her big sister loves that she can have one too knowing the pouch is also for big kids. Ella’s Kitchen The Red One is made of only certified USDA organic squished strawberries, raspberries, apples and bananas.

Snack Factory® Original Pretzel Crisps® are perfect for everything from pairing with a tasty dip for parties, packing for your child’s school snack, or a quick mommy snack break. The world’s first – and original – pretzel-shaped cracker, Pretzel Crisps contain 30% fewer calories than potato chips, so they’re a great “better-for-you” snack alternative. That’s a win-win in our house. Pretzel Crisps are available in a variety of flavors and even gluten-free in the deli section of grocery stores nationwide.

I’ve been a big fan of LaCroix Water for quite awhile. The 100% natural sparkling water is an excellent alternative to soda when I’m looking for a carbonated beverage. The LaCroix Cúrate Melón Pomelo is a new flavor variety and I’ve added it to my grocery shopping list. It has ripe cantaloupe essence infused with pink grapefruit for a tangy duo with a touch of sweetness.
