Has anyone seen this video on you tube??? If you haven’t, definitely watch it!
It really makes you think…how do we know when foods are truly organic?? And, how can we find that out?
Are you craving a simple weeknight meal? Something super easy to make, but nutritious and completely delicious to eat? This is it! Trust me.
Two of my favorite veggies are sweet potatoes and kale. My favorite ways to eat them? Low and slow sweet potatoes and kale chips!
Low and Slow Sweet Potatoes
They come out perfect every time!
With these two delicious veggies, all you need to add is a protein. I grilled up an apple and sage Field Roast Veggie Sausage, but I served this to my husband with a piece of chicken. Anything would work.
This meal was perfect after a long day at work.
I am finally back on track with my eating and feeling great!
The past week, I have been starting my day off with a glass of fresh squeezed juice. I have been feeling dehydrated, tired and just crappy lately, so starting my day off with a lot of vitamins and nutrients is a great way to start the day. I feel re-energized!
Beets, carrots, apple, 1/2 lime and a knob of ginger were in the mix.
Refreshing and delicious on these hot and humid summer days!
Juice is a great way to get a natural boost of energy and essential vitamins in to your diet. The calories do add up, but a glass every morning or every few mornings won’t do any harm as long as you eat healthy the rest of the day. Healthy eating makes me have more energy and feel much better about myself. And, now that I have a little one to raise, it is important to me to get her on a healthy track right from the start.
On Saturday morning, we took Hayden out for a walk through the trails at Elm Bank in Wellesley. It was a gorgeous day; perfect for some exercise!
After our walk, we toured the gardens, including the children’s garden!
And, we had a picnic on the grounds and relaxed.
Once home, I made up a batch of Angela’s Veggie Burgers and we had a delicious meal!
These burgers are delicious! Jam packed with oats, beans, nuts and carrots, these burgers are filling and healthy! I piled my burger high with cheddar cheese, avocado and a slice of tomato. And, served them with sweet potato fries and corn on the cob.
What a perfect day!
Well, clearly time is flying over here! I can’t believe that it has been another month since I posted…and that my baby girl is now 3 months old!!!
She has changed so much over the past 3 months, but I have noticed the majority of changes over the past month.
Hayden – 1 month old
Hayden – 2 months old
Hayden – 3 months old
She has her own little personality now! She is smiling all the time and “talking/cooing”. And, this past week – she has been sleeping 8-10 hour stretches at night! A huge change from the 2 hour stretches that we were getting only 2 months ago. Time flies!
Now that 3 months have gone by, my husband and I have vowed to get back on track with our eating. We haven’t been eating poorly, but we have been getting a lot of takeout because it is just so much easier. We are now on more of a sleep schedule with our daughter, so it should be easier for us to make this work. It is hard to get back on track!
I have run a few times over the past month, but I am ready to make that a priority again (behind being a mom, of course!). Being a mom means that I need to set a good example for my family. Healthy living is important to me, therefore, it needs to be a priority. I want to get back on the road…and back to the kitchen. Summer is the perfect time to do both with the longer days and nicer weather, it is easy to stay motivated.
And, this baby girl is even more motivation to get back on track!
Wow! It has been over two months since I last posted…and what a two months it has been!
On March 31, 2011 my husband and I welcomed our new baby girl at 7:19pm!
Hayden Lynne weighed in at 9 lbs 5 oz and was 20 inches long. She was a big girl!
We have been having the time of our lives ever since. We love Hayden so much and cherish every second with her. It is amazing that two months have passed. She turns two months old today!
She has changed so much in the past two months, just look at these photos…
I will be back with updates on my labor and how we have been adjusting to life as parents…it is the best!
I wasn’t planning on a pregnancy post this week, since I just recently posted a Second Trimester Recap, but I had to document some photos!
It is amazing how much can happen over a 5-6 month timeframe. It seems like just yesterday that we found out that we were pregnant…and here we are with just 9 weeks left to go until our due date!
