6 Best Subscription Gifts For Moms

I am a practical kind of person. While some take offense to receiving a vacuum or kitchenware. Me? I'll jump for joy. Of course I do appreciate some silly and gag gifts. But really, when you become a mom..you will make it your life's mission to : 1. Purchase items that make sense...or items/products that will make our life easy. 2. Make purposeful purchases 3. Give meaningful and purposeful gifts as well.

Moms are also known to put themselves on the back burner. It is just our nature. We will make excuses for the things  needed because ..well...we will prioritize what matters first. Not unless of course it is given to us by our spouses,family or friends. There are also moms that you just do not know what to give as a gift.  Here's some subscription gifts that I personally love.

Asparagus Stir Fry

My girls never liked asparagus. Even if it is wrapped in bacon BUT to my surprise they love this stir fry! The only difference I see is that I did cut the the asparagus into tips. I used to "hide" veggies , every way that I can. I made Chocolate Zucchini Muffins before and blend shredded veggies into spaghetti sauces and meat loafs.  I once made Carrot Muffins  , I did not tell our youngest daughter what it was..all she saw was the icing!!


21 Day Fix - 4 FREE Gifts Offer! Shed pounds in just in 21 days!
Aside from our girls finally eating asparagus, what I love about this recipe is that it is simple, quick  flavorful! Use 21 day fix All Purpose seasoning for a clean eating meal. This meal is less than $10  for a  family of four and I do shop at Aldi. I know where you shop does make a difference. Where you shop might be cheaper! You can also skip soy sauce or just use low sodium. Add red pepper flakes for some kick!

Ingredients:

1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup chopped yellow onions ( small chopped)
2 eggs
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2  to 1 cup , halves cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
1 cup, homemade pizza sauce, see recipe HERE.

Directions:

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. Cook until quinoa is tender.
Mix all the ingredients together.


 Distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin,I used a tablespoon. Press each cup down. It will be a little messy, some quinoa will stick to your hands. Bake the quinoa bites for 20 minutes . You can check at 15 minute mark. Let it cool.





Each serving is full of flavor and healthy to boot! It is great for after school snack or anytime at work that you need a quick bite. I made a huge batch of  and kept it in an airtight container. It was still tasty after 3 days! Serve with pizza sauce and I promise you...this is way more healthier and hip friendly than your regular pizza.


I might be a little biased with pizza sauce. I love homemade pizza sauce! First, it is very easy to make. Second , it is frugal and frugal is my thing. Third, it is more flavorful.


I also made the 21 Day Fix version of this. I used the yellow container to measure my quinoa , green container for the tomatoes, red for the eggs and I skipped the salt , used the 21 Day Fix All purpose seasoning.

Homemade Energy Balls

Protein snacks. They come in all shapes and sizes. Just like stepping into the cereal aisle where there is an endless selection of cereals boxes , I get the same feeling when I choose protein bars. Not all are created equal though . Some are great tasting and some will leave you wondering if you ate a piece of card board. Truth be told, I go for inexpensive ones.

 When hubs and I decided to change our lifestyle, it did worry me a little. How will it affect our budget. Why are some healthy and fitness products so expensive? That..I can't completely comprehend. One thing is for sure though that the benefits will be greater.  I did quite a bit of research and note taking on how we can substitute some  healthy recipes so it can still be budget friendly.A few months ago, I shared the Clean Eating Turkey Chili. I cooked that chili when we were doing the Insanity workout. Buying a can of turkey chili can easily add up.



I was happy to come across this recipe over at Beachbody's website. The recipe was actually for Homemade Energy Bars. I did some revisions based on the ingredients that I already have. I also did not use Shakeology , again hubs and I are testing out ways to loose weight within our budget. Beachbody highly recommends taking Shakeology while doing their workouts because of its benefits...which I certainly agree.  However, not all can afford it, right? This  recipe can also be used for 21 day fix.

Ingredients:

1 cup whole pitted prunes
1 cup dried figs
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 scoops Shakeology ( I used EAS whey protein powder)

Directions:

You can process the walnuts first using a blender or food processor.  Set aside . Place dried prunes,  figs and half of the chopped walnuts in a food processor. Pulse for 1 to 2 minutes scraping the sides.  Pulse until mixture resembles like this.


Form the processed fruit and nuts into a ball. I was able to make around 12 balls. Using half of the walnuts, roll the balls into the walnuts. Place in a parchment lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour. 


If you want to make these yummies into energy bars, press mixture into a cellophane lined 8x8 pan , cover and refrigerate for 1 hr. Cut into 12 bars.

One bar, has 148 calories and 6 g of protein.


You can definitely add your own flavors but note that it will change the nutritional value.  If you are doing 21 Day Fix, 1 serving   will be:

8 Clean Eating and 21 Day Fix Seasonings ( Free Printable)


Clean eating. Just saying it makes it sound so impossible and daunting. It also has the notion of boring and tasteless.  There are ways to add extra flavor and yumminess to your food. You can satisfy your palette and be healthy too.

Most store bought seasonings contains God knows what extra ingredients to preserve it. Speaking of scary extra ingredients, I just watched the news that said..Parmesan cheese could contain some wood. Some Parmesan grated cheeses sold as "100 percent Parmesan" contain no Parmesan at all - but they do contain a fair chunk of harmless wood pulp ( READ HERE)


There are a lot of spices and seasonings that you can make at home.It is very frugal too! Make them in batches! Make a double or triple batch of the seasoning and store in an air tight jar.

Right after doing a round of Insanity work out, we originally planned on following it up with either Insanity Max:30 or Focus T25. I was a part of a Facebook group that shares clean eating recipes and motivation. It is also a group that works out on 21 Day Fix. So, I was really inspired and  purchased the workout. Hubs and I loves it! It was only half an hour. Everybody have half an hour right?  I know I promised to share our Insanity journey and how we lost weight..believe me I am still working on it! I want to share not just the results but also resources to help my readers. It's been almost a year since we started our journey with Beachbody and we are completely in love with their workouts. I am excited to purchase the 22 Minute Hard Corps next!

Spice up your lean protein, rice, veggies, grains and add flavor to your clean eating recipes . The 3  21 Day FIX seasoning mixes  are part of the 21 Day Fix and 3 Day Fix Extreme meal plan and exercise program. If you are not familiar with 21 Day Fix and would like more information on how to order, feel free to send me a message or ORDER HERE. 21 Day Fix has changed our eating habits greatly!
