I have noticed that Mister Man does much better when he's going into a situation when he has protein in him. If he has a gymnastics or tae kwon do class or if he's headed to school or elsewhere, I have found that he is able to concentrate so much better when he eats some protein beforehand.

To that end, I now ensure that he eats some protein at breakfast. When he gets home from school, I give him something before he has his first activity. Usually it's a tuna roll up or a PB&J sandwich or some leftover chicken or something from the night before.

When I had a party at my house on Friday last week, I got creative with my protein, and everyone loved it. It's a riff off something I've seen elsewhere - and like most things I make - it's something that can easily be changed around to suit your tastes. And really, how cute are these? I'm definitely making them again!


Funny Flowers

Ingredients:
Rice cakes
Peanut butter (I used almond butter - you could also use Nutella, mmmm!)
Flax seeds (or sunflower seeds or dried fruit or whatever)
Grapes

Directions:
Spread the peanut butter over the rice cakes. Slice the grapes in half, and arrange them on the edge of the rice cakes like flower petals. Sprinkle the flax seeds in the middle. Serve immediately (or refrigerate - since I use the all natural organic stuff with no stabilizers - and serve within a day).

Watch their little faces shine! Enjoy this and more with Tempt My Tummy and Blessed with Grace.

Hi Michelle. Sounds like a good, healthy snack for the little ones - and us big ones, too. :-) Thanks.

Cute idea and I love the name.

OMG! I have to try it! I always have trouble getting in my protein. I really does affect my day if I don't get it in at every meal! Love this! Thank you!

Lisa - It's possible my husband ate the leftovers :) They were fun to make!

Kelly - Wellll since it was a fairy party, they were originally going to be called "fairy flowers" but I figured if they were for Mister Man, too, maybe I should change the name ;)

Patty - So do I... except that I don't like peanut butter. It is such a huge difference in moods, isn't it?
