Well, football season is the new holiday season, and I am someone who loves a football party for pure gathering aspect. As a busy mom, I don’t get to enjoy football games as often as I’d like, but I can put together a fun and fancy cheeseboard that keep all my football fans super happy! I have a cheeseboard today that is full of items kids and adults love, while also being very simple to put together. I put a little fanciness to it with some fun glasses and cranberries in our Coca-Cola™. Makes my guests feel special with a little extra touch to our beverages. Coca-Cola is our favorite special drink for game days because it’s so good, and makes the cheese, crackers and finger-food taste even better.
When putting together a yummy cheese board, I like to include a few things:
Soft Cheeses like Brie and Mozzarella, as well as traditional harder cheeses like Sharp Cheddar. In this spread I used Brie as the center with slices of Sharp Cheddar and Gouda as the compliments.
Most football fans love some meat, so I included turkey and salami to pair with the harder cheeses. I LOVE anything with figs, and to keep it simple, I grabbed and cut up some fig newtons to pair with the brie on a rosemary cracker. That was my favorite combo to sip with my Coca-Cola™ Zero Sugar.
My little football fans love the fig newtons and crackers along with apples and cheddar and butter crackers. I have to monitor them or they will eat it all!
To make it a little fancier, I sprinkled cranberries and rosemary, as well as served our Coca-Cola™ Zero Sugar in some fun mugs. I threw in some ice and cranberries to bring a little spice to our party.
Important aspects of a cheeseboard are meats, various cheeses, fruit and something sweet like a jam or grapes, or in this case, fig newtons. Those went over really well! Make it larger than you think. This spread didn’t last as long as I wanted, and with my boys and a few other guests, we ate it all up too fast, so add more crackers and cheese than you’d expect!
So many mamas are having such success with the program, and let me share what they’ve said:
“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change. I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”
“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go! I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help!”
“The few changes I’ve made to diet per your instructions is already helping lower my sweet cravings. I’m sure I’ll notice an even bigger difference when I get stricter. This week has been great as I feel better, have already lost 2#, and haven’t seen a drop in milk supply which was my biggest concern. I look forward to starting the workouts tonight!”
“The baby steps have been super helpful including writing down everything I ate…Another 5 days would be amazing, I was thinking yesterday what am I going to do after the 5 days are finished. You have been incredibly helpful!! I am so appreciative!!!”
My program focuses on specialized nutrition for breastfeeding moms, recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, a new Ab Rehab + Pelvic Floor Restore program, and a new section on going back to work after baby coming soon!
