A BANANA SPLIT FOR BREAKFAST? YEP...MADE THE NOOSA WAY!


You can teach an old dog new tricks!
In this case, we find ourselves taking more and more advice from our children when it comes to cooking and eating healthier! It's very true, Estelle's is based on southern cooking and scrumptious recipes from my grandmothers and my mother, Miss Helen. But we do strive to eat healthy on most week days. I have discovered two new products that I would love to share with you!



NOOSA is a family owned company out of Colorado and they have happy cows! 
I'm behind that 100%!


I love buying organic. I have come to believe many health issues are created by the processed foods and pesticides used in our food today. Buying organic can be more expensive however. You should be aware of that before loading your grocery cart with all organic products. Shop around and take time to read labels. The Divine Miss M and #1 son, Greg are diligent about this when doing their grocery shopping. I am getting better at it.....really I am. So getting back to our post title.....Banana Splits for Breakfast.....a healthy version....not what you hand in mind was it?


It has taken me a long, long time, to convince the love of my life to eat yogurt. And....I have finally succeeded! We have recently tried the NOOSA brand of this Colorado fresh yogurt and we both loved it. It's all natural, gluten free, and a great probiotic!  They are also served in 8 ounce sized containers, which is perfect for the Mr. Wonderful in my life! I have provided the link to their website story below!

The second organic product we discovered is Cascadian Farm Organic granola bars. They are made with seven ingredients only and are a great source of fiber. The link to their website is listed below also. Meet ya' at the corner of Happy and Healthy Y'all!


So the healthier version of the classic banana split has been created....
a sliced banana. NOOSA yogurt and topped with crunchy organic granola!

  1. Miss Betsy, I so agree with organic! My family went this route long ago, what a difference it made in our health. Costco and Sam's club by me are great resources for organic. I make 99% of everything we eat from scratch so that helps with costs. I figure you can pay now or certainly pay it down the road. Happy cows, happy dance. Hugs, Patti

    1. i jmac! Here in Texas, you can find Noosa at any store who sells organic products, such as Whole Foods and Sprouts. I would guess it would be in that section of your grocery! I also love their natural flavors such as Rhubarb Strawberry! Thank you so much for providing the link on your blog. Have a wonderful day!!
