little things : goodkid snack bars

little things : goodkid snack bars | unruly things

one thing we really focus on for Wolf is good nutrition, which means limiting his sugar intake while feeding him yummy stuff. when I first heard about GoodKid Foods delicious, low-sugar snack bars produced locally in Bend, Oregon, I was super intrigued! the bars have only 5 or 6 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor. plus, the branding is way cute, right?!

the bars are offered in three yummy, kid-friendly flavors: Apple Cinnamon, Oatmeal Raisin and Lemon Blueberry. Wolf and I tested out their Apple Cinnamon bar this morning and I have to say – I was pretty excited about it. and so was he! he begged me for more. the bars are packed with organic fruit, tons of omega-3′s, and antioxidants like acai, pomegranate, echinacea, choline, vitamin C, and zinc. since Wolf has a peanut allergy, I was thrilled to learn that they are peanut free and only use almond butter in their bars.

GoodKid Foods are on the home stretch of their Kickstarter campaign and I’m super excited to see these guys get up and running. read more about their process here and to help fund them, click here. the pledge rewards are truly in your favor as you’ll be getting healthy, low sugar snack bars for your kiddos, and heck – for you too! I’m not sure about you, but it’s especially exciting when I know your kiddos are snacking on something healthy – mom win!

for the dudes : pacific standard bags

for the dudes : pacific standard bags | unruly things

always a fan of the goods coming from Bridge & Burn, it’s no surprise that I found myself wishlisting their newest collection of waxed cotton bags – not only for me, but for my husband too. made in collaboration with Clinton Street Bag Company {more fun stuff on them later!} and handcrafted in the Pacific Northwest.

made of 10oz waterproof waxed canvas with heavy twill reinforced bottoms, super sturdy brass hardware, rain-flaps to keep the PNW weather at bay, the bags are meant to stand up to all the demands of daily life. the backpack has exterior access to the padded laptop sleeve, and the duffle has a snap down, extra-large opening to the main compartment that offers easy access while you pack. they’d be perfect for the dude in your life, plus there’s a tote and a ladies bag, too!

little things : our favorite summer clothes

little things : our favorite summer clothes | unruly things

lately Wolf has spent almost every waking second playing outside in the backyard. it’s almost summer and it sure feels like it. he runs around bare foot, sprays the hose, helps me water the plants, hunts for four {and five!} leaf clovers, ants & flowers, and just has a blast being a kid. since he’s outside a lot, I like to pick comfy clothes for him that are still stylish but can take a beating. one of my very favorite brands is Nico Nico. the clothes are made with the softest organic cotton you can imagine and fit great. I’ve enjoyed many of their past seasons but I must say, this Spring/Summer collection is one of my very faves. with the combos of bright colors, indigo dyes & stripes and camo, you can’t ask for much better. have a peek here.

bite + sip : vegan dinners

bite + sip : vegan dinners | unruly things

back in January, Levi and I ate mostly vegan for the entire month. I’ll be honest. I struggled, not only because I was newly pregnant and nothing sounded or tasted good, but I wasn’t fully prepared for it. my meals just didn’t appeal to me and I was drained trying to find new recipes that were exciting.

fast forward 4 months, and we decided to try it again. yet this time, we opted only to create vegan {and a little low carb} lunch and dinners* and I’ve been ecstatic at how good our meals are tasting. and *gasp* I’ve even become a little turned off by cheese. {I know!!!} it’s incredible to me how flavorful and rich each meal has tasted. I’m sure Levi gets tired of me saying things like “this is amazing” or “gosh, I feel so healthy!!” but seriously. the meals we’ve been preparing are SO good.

there’s plenty more on my BITE board on Pinterest, but these are a few of my recent faves.

*I missed eggs for breakfast and this pregnant lady likes her ice cream – what can I say?! ;)
