Van’s Back to School Giveaway – with Joy Bauer!

Please Note: This giveaway was facilitated by Van’s Foods. I was not compensated for this post but did receive free product samples and all opinions are my own.

Well, are you back to school yet? About half of us around here went back to school earlier this week, and the rest will hit the books bright and early Monday morning! Woot woot! And along those lines, I am SO excited to partner with Van’s to celebrate modern moms and help make their lives a little easier, just in time for back-to-school!

And what is one of the most important keys to a successful back to school routine? Breakfast!

But breakfast doesn’t have to be stressful. Quick, wholesome options like Van’s waffles offer protein and whole grains that are so delicious moms feel great about serving them and kids love eating them!

It’s a New Year Van’s Giveaway Event!

Normally I don’t throw a post up here on Thursdays, but this one is extra special, because it’s for my good friends over at Van’s!

Van’s is extra special to me because their waffles were the FIRST ready-made gluten-free product that I ever tried. Those waffles gave me hope in a very confusing time when I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and I will be forever grateful to Van’s! After all, they ARE the leader in frozen, better-for-you waffles! And each of their varieties bring great nutrition, whole grain goodness, non-GMO verified ingredients and gluten-free options to breakfast, lunch and snack time. Even dinner! (Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner, am I right?!)

With lines that include the popular 8 Whole Grains, Power Grains, Organic and Gluten-Free waffles, Van’s has creative ideas for wholesome breakfasts, lunches, snacks and appetizers perfect for the colder months ahead. Whether it’s a quick, warm, nutritious breakfast, an allergy-friendly stand-in for bread, or a delicious whole-grain dessert, Van’s waffles are popping up in all kinds of recipes that can be shared again and again.

Recipes, you say? Oh yes, how about we go ahead and get to some recipes!
