You guys have seen the elaborate lunches that my kids eat, so I’m almost embarrassed to admit that my diet is seriously lacking. The thing is, I’m busy (aren’t we all!). I’m usually so busy tending to my family, that I forget to take care of myself too. I know I’m not getting my daily dose of nutrients on a daily basis, and I know I need to step up my game. That’s why I was thrilled to try out a new cereal by General Mills. Fibre 1 Almond & Cluster Delight is being released in stores soon and I had the pleasure of getting a box to try ahead of time. Not only is it delicious, but it’s awesome to know that I am getting 40% of my daily recommended fibre intake in just one bowl. That’s huge for me!!
Now, I was going to take the Fibre 1 challenge and eat a bowl every day for a whole week, but unfortunately that didn’t pan out for me. My mistake was that I left the cereal box in the pantry. I guess that made it fair game for everyone. Not only did my husband enjoy a few bowls, but so did my kids. Although I’m thrilled that the family liked it, it left me a tad disappointed and wanting more.
The good news though is that this awesome cereal is soon to be released in stores in Canada. Want even more good news?? If you visit the General Mills’ Life Made Delicious Facebook Page before June 25th, you can grab a coupon to get a free box yourself!! This free coupon is redeemable for ONE DAY ONLY- in stores on July 16, 2013. Grab a coupon while supplies last and mark your calendars. This cereal was so delicious, you’ll want to give it a try!

This sweet little bee snack is the perfect treat for kids this time of year. My kids may not like the real thing buzzing around outside, but they sure were thrilled about this snack! Go get all the details at Canadian Family!
It’s the last day of our week with Yubo and we’ve had some pretty fun lunches this week! I’m ending this week with a lunch for my little lady to go with the theme of her Yubo lunch box – cupcakes!
The largest container has a cupcake sandwich made with our sweet lunch punch set. The cupcakes decorations are mozza cheese, sprinkles, and a real cherry on top with a cute green leaf pick. In the smaller circle containers I put silicone flower muffin cups filled with raspberries and sliced cucumbers and a baby carrot center.
I hope you enjoyed our little week with Yubo here at Meet the Dubiens. I loved using this lunch box over the last week and I can guarantee that it’s one you’ll be seeing again and again on this blog!
Here’s day four of my week with Yubo! A really cute flower power bento box.
The larger container held 2 flower-cut PB-alternative and jam sandwiches. I used a small circle cutter and cut the centre out so you can see the jam underneath. I filled the space with cute flower silicone baran. In the circle containers I put some applesauce with flower sprinkles, and a flower silicone muffin cup with sliced baby carrots and blueberries.
Join me tomorrow for our last day of our week with Yubo!
On to day 3 of my week with Yubo. Today’s Yubo lunch box was inspired by the adorable faceplates on Cam’s Yubo:
I figured my favourite little guy would love a car Yubo, and I was right! Check it out:
In the largest container, I made a car sandwich using 2 slices of light rye bread, cucumber and black olive wheels, and used small bento cutters to cut windows out of mozza cheese. The details are all held in place with dabs of cream cheese. The road is made out of a piece of fruit leather, and mozza cheese road lines. I filled the smaller containers with vanilla yogurt and traffic light sprinkles (red, orange, green), and the other container with traffic light fruit (raspberries, pineapple and kiwi)!
Come back tomorrow to see another fabulous Yubo lunch!
