It's time for back to school, and back to having everyone dressed and fed and out the door on time. No time to do it all?

Here are our favorite recipes that can be made ahead of time, and eaten in the car, thanks to Little Green Pouch. With 3 sizes of pouches to choose from, they are perfect for every member of the family, no matter how big or small the appetite.
This weekend we whipped up a batch of DIY crayons. They were such a hit on Instagram, we decided to share the how-to with all of you. First of all, why DIY crayons? Do you find crayons break all the time, and you are constantly replacing them? These giant crayons will last a lot longer. You can buy oversized, "toddler" crayons, but they are expensive. So this super easy DIY version is a great solution.
All you need is an oven, a muffin tin, and crayons. You can use all the broken crayon pieces you have laying around, or use new crayons that you break yourself.
1. Preheat oven to 250
2. Gather crayons and remove wrappers. Tip: soak crayons in warm water, and wrappers will fall right off.
3. Sort by color, and place crayon pieces in muffin tins
4. Place muffin tin in oven until crayons melt (about 15 minutes)
5. Turn oven off. Let crayons cool for a bit in oven (about 30 minutes)
6. Remove crayons from oven, and let cool completely
7. Remove from muffin tin and enjoy!
These 5 recipes are perfect for refueling after workout. Fill one of our 14-ounce pouches for the perfect portion.
Summer is upon us, and that means fun in sun. It also means hot, hot, hot weather. So how do you keep your family cool when the mercury levels skyrocket? Here's 5 tips for staying cool this summer:Ceiling Fan Switch-a-Roo: Did you know you should change the rotation of your ceiling fan seasonally? Set it counter-clockwise in the summer at a higher speed, the fan’s airflow will create a wind-chill breeze effect that will make you “feel” cooler.
Snack Smart: When it's hot out, keeping hydrated is extremely important. But it can be hard to get kids to slow down enough to drink enough water. Try a slushy frozen in a Little Green Pouch. This recipe with coconut water in it is great for staying hydrated as well. The kids (and adults) will love them, they will stay hydrated, and you will avoid the dreaded melted popsicle mess.
Wear light, loose-fitting clothing: Linen, cotton, and silk are the fabrics of the summer. Light colored clothes and hats will reflect sunlight, rather than absorbing it like dark colors do.Plan some indoor activities: While summer is all about being outside, on especially hot days, take advantage of free air conditioning. Go out to lunch, to the museum, library, or window shop at the mall.
