It’s a balmy 73 degrees and gloomy instead of the usual 91 degrees and sunny. I don’t want to be awake. I opened my eyes at 5:30 this morning to my husband saying, ‘ugh it’s raining.’ I closed them again with the hope that my non sleeping daughter would remain asleep until… i don’t know…Read more
One of my friends is newly pregnant. If that’s a thing, newly pregnant. Sounds funny to me. Anyway, It makes me think of all the changes she is about to endure and probably hopes she won’t. I can’t help but think I have no desire to endure the skin problems I had during pregnancy again. Although, it’s worthRead more
I’m entirely distracted by this hot weather in the middle of winter. It’s exactly 91 degrees and C’s cheeks are rosy and warm after a couple of minutes in the shade. If the pool would somehow heat up to that temperature we would be very grateful. My sister is in town and we are eatingRead more
In 15 minutes you’ll have a healthy, guilt free, chocolate chip cookie. Made from banana’s and oats. They’ll have you saying ‘ahh’ from the first bite.
In anticipation of summertime I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes for chicken salad. I tried this recipe for the first time at a wedding shower a couple years ago and I’ve been making chicken salad this way every since. They’re light, flavorful, and a much healthier alternative to normal chicken salad. ThisRead more
If you’re a chipotle or a cafe rio lover… you’ll probably love this salad… vegan option included. It’s a simple weeknight staple.
When I found out I was pregnant I was excited and terrified at the same time. I had no idea what I was in for. I knew weight gain was inevitable, nausea possible, and I was going to need a lot of new ‘stuff’. I wasn’t looking forward to blowing up like a balloon from water retention, gaining 100Read more
This is one of my favorite breakfasts, it’s quick, easy, and has only five ingredients. I make this after my daughter goes to bed and it makes enough for at least 2 breakfasts for the week. Here I used frozen blueberries and slivered almonds to top it off.
A warm addition to a perfectly healthy sunday brunch or everyday breakfast. Baked Oatmeal is a yummy way to get oats and fiber into your day.
I’m on a chocolate/sweet kick that is only great for milk production (since i know that’s what everyone wants to hear about but that’s my life now) so I am rolling with it. I latch onto every healthy dessert recipe that I see on the instagram and try it. So, I tried making these Chocolate Chip Cookies fromRead more
These are one of my favorite breakfast treats. They’re naturally gluten free and making your own berry compote or topping is the perfect alternative to syrup. They’re extra moist and feel deliciously sinful.
The other day I posted a photo on Instagram of my lunch/favorite meal/the best curry ever. Yesterday, I had a couple of people ask for the recipe so here it is- Or rather the link to it. The recipe is from Emeril Lagasse and is originally a Shrimp Thai Curry but I like it withoutRead more
On my last birthday I was sick, sleepy, and pregnant. A true winning combo for an exciting birthday. I didn’t mind considering, for me, a good birthday is spent by eating good food, my favorite Apple Cake (thanks mom), and spending it with my family. We were pretty tame and decided to get tickets toRead more
I am so super behind on this but… Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve. Honestly, after seeing the hill behind our house filled with hikers on New Years Day, I’ve decided that New Year’s Eve is often filled with the last hurrah of eating and drinking whatever you wantRead more
