THIS IS IMPORTANT: This is my anecdotal recollection of my own unique experience, partly because I think it's important to share my experience about a topic that many mamas think about, and partly because it feels good to me to write down my thoughts so that I can look back at them in the future [...]

Napa is a very special place for our family. It's been a romantic weekend away destination for Rusty and I since we first started dating back in 2009. It's where we take a yearly trip for my best friend, Taz's, birthday. And now it's where we will take family weekends because, believe it or not, [...]

Alright, it's time for smoothie bowl number two! If you missed the first one, check out my banana turmeric bowl HERE. I've had these two on rotation pretty much every day.

super crispy potato bits

Since having a baby, I've consistently been looking for no fuss food shortcuts that DON'T sacrifice flavor or nutrition. Unfortunately, the easiest to grab, quickest to eat foods are usually pretty full of crap (read: freezer meals). Knowing what I do about nutrition and how what I eat directly impacts my little one through breastmilk, [...]

easy banana oat pancakes

Can you tell I am on an oat kick? Gluten free oats have been working really well for me this pregnancy, and I love the energy boost they provide without a bunch of sugar. Sustained energy, delicious flavor, gluten free goodness. I'm in. These pancakes are a product of the inspiration from my good friend Taz. [...]
