Rise and Shine at Traton HomesAs the new school year begins, make sure the kids (and you!) are not missing the most important meal of the day.

Among other benefits, Today’s Dietitian reports that starting the day with a healthy breakfast kick-starts our metabolism helping prevent weight gain and medical issues such as diabetes and obesity. Not to mention the fact that learning arithmetic with a full stomach is a lot easier than learning with a growling tummy!

We understand that mornings can be a hectic time, and breakfast is not always a top priority. has compiled a list of easy breakfast recipes – here are some of our favorites to help jump-start your “on-the-go” back to school breakfast routine!

  • Dressed-Up Yogurt

Plain vanilla yogurt lacks the luster that attracts kids to eat it, so vamp it up by adding fun healthy items to the mix (just leave out the “healthy” selling point when describing this to them). Popular and healthy yogurt add-ins include:

– Honey
– Toasted almonds, pistachios
– Coconut
– Granola

Get creative with this one! Let your kids choose some of their favorite items to make concoctions of their own. Read More→

Enjoy Summer with Traton HomesWhen thinking about summer, one thing that comes to mind is drinking ice-cold lemonade, preferably on an airy porch or beside a pool or lake. Many of us grew up having lemonade stands in the summer trying to fill up our piggybanks. Others simply remember feeling nothing was better than a cold lemonade on a hot, summer day. As the summer and its heat continue, we have pulled together a few summer lemonade recipes to help you beat the heat.

Classic Lemonade

For those of you wanting to have classic lemonade, all you need is one-half of a cup of sugar, one cup of fresh lemon juice and water. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring it to a boil. Be sure to stir it occasionally. Once the sugar is dissolved, let it cool. Then, combine the syrup with the lemon juice and two-and-a-half to three cups of water into a pitcher. Finally, pour your lemonade into cups with ice and enjoy!

Tropical Lemonade

This recipe gives your lemonade more flavor and a tropical kick. To make, put one-and-a-half cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice, one-half of a cup of sugar and one cup of water into a large pitcher. Stir this until the sugar dissolves. Next, add five more cups of water, two six-ounce cans of pineapple juice, one 12-ounce can of apricot nectar, two 12-ounce cans of ginger ale, a few slices of lemon to garnish and plenty of ice. Finally, stir the pitcher, serve and enjoy your tropical lemonade drink! Read More→
