The Weekly Bite Family is moving to the East Coast. This move is very bittersweet for us, that’s why I love the above quote so much. Three years ago, life moved us to San Diego. We had lived there before for six years, so we already knew we loved it, but what we didn’t realize was how much we missed our East Coast friends and family. So, we are heading back to the Washington, DC area.
The past four weeks have been so busy. (With a heavy heart) we sold our San Diego home and bought a lovely home in the DC area. Now, we are embarking on a two week road trip with two cars, two kids, lots of snacks, and more caffeine than I care to admit.
Life is taking us back to the East Coast. While we are sad to be leaving such a beautiful city, we are beyond excited to be close to our family and friends again! This is what life is all about right? I think? Life changes all the time and all we can do is focus on the positive. I have never travelled cross country with two toddlers, but our cars are stocked with crafts, books, snacks, and everything else you can think of.
While our family is traveling and adjusting to the move, posts might be a little slow. My goal is to check in with you at least once per week, then transition back to regular posting.
See you all on the East Coast!!
When it comes to on-the-go nutritious snacks for kids, my children love it when I make these frozen yogurt rollups. They are tasty, packed full of nutrition and are easy to eat because they are frozen.
All you need is a small whole wheat tortilla, spray it with a little nonstick cooking spray, sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top, then flip the tortilla and fill will low-fat vanilla yogurt and a mix of your favorite frozen fruits and a sprinkle of dark chocolate chips. Roll them up tightly then freeze for a few hours.
Your kids will love these! What I do is cut them in half so my kid’s can share one. It’s a nice, healthy refreshing treat for them.

Mixed Berry Dark Chocolate Frozen Yogurt Rollup
- non stick cooking spray
- one tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1.5 cups low fat vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup of your kids favorite frozen fruit
- 1/2 semi sweet chocolate chips per rolls
Spray each tortilla will a light coat of non stick cooking spay. Mix together your brown sugar and cinnamon. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon sugar onto tortilla. Flip Tortilla upside down. Spoon about 1 large tablespoon yogurt on left side on tortila. Top with a tablespoon of your frozen fruit and a light sprinkle of dark chocolate chips. Then very carefully, tightly wrap tortillas and place on a cookie sheet. Repeat the process. Freeze for at least 3 hours or over night until completely frozen.
Every time I take my kid’s to the supermarket with me they always spot the chocolate and strawberry milk (which are conveniently placed at eye level for a toddler). They ask, they plead, but my answer is always no, “we make make better strawberry milk at home.”
With Valentines’ Day right around the corner I figured this was the perfect time to try it out. This recipe is so easy.
All you need is milk (almond, soy, or coconut can be subbed) and six large strawberries. If the strawberries are tart, you can add a little agave nectar or honey to sweeten it up a bit.
It’s the perfect way to start Valentines’s day! Enjoy!
Strawberry Kiss Milk (serves 1)
- 2/3 cup low fat milk ( can be subbed for coconut milk, almond milk, or soy milk)
- 6 large strawberries, stems removed.
- Agave nectar or honey to taste
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.
