This is a partnered post with Dole Packaged Foods. All opinions are our own.
One of my favorite things about the morning is getting to spend time with my girls. Working full time I spend five days a week without eating dinner with my children because my hours at work keep me late. That means that we make the most of our mornings and with breakfast being the most important meal of the day we try to make it fun and nutritious.
This holiday season we are so proud to get to partner with Dole Packaged Foods. Their products are not only delicious and nutritious but I really believe in their non GMO products and all of the work they do to help Food Share and Feeding America. Here in Los Angeles through Dole’s partnership they help fund school gardens at elementary schools and science programs in local high schools. Additionally Dole donates 1 million pounds in healthy foods to local communities that need it most.
This week I decided to try one of the recipes created for Dole by Chef Jamie Gwen her morning tacos with pineapple black bean salsa. It’s so easy to make and was a fun twist on breakfast. Our whole family enjoyed these and I can easily see myself making these again.

Being that the Rose Parade is coming and here in Southern California it’s an honored tradition. Last year our family had the honor to get to see Dole’s 2018 Rose Parade float while it was being built. This year our family will actually get to help and this years float is called The Rhythm of Paradise showcases the respect the Hawaiian people have for their land, ocean life and traditions.
