5 Weeks Post Partum

5 weeks! I want to say it has flown by, it also kind of feels like we’ve had Willow around for years. Maybe that’s the no sleep talkin’.

Anyway everyone is doing well! I wanted to update you on my post partum bod. I started to workout a little which has been nice. It can be [...]

How to Make Oat Flour

This is so ridiculously easy it’s not really a “how to” post…more of a short sentence.

So, oat flour is great because you can use it as a gluten free substitute while baking (that being said, sometimes oats can be cross contaminated and actually have gluten. In general, whole rolled oats should be gluten free). [...]

Quest Bar Winners!

Hi guys! We have our winners….. (also want to apologize for the grammatical errors in this post I’m doing this on my iPad).

I picked numbers in a super official way: had my husband give me two random numbers. I figured even by using a number generator I could cheat if I wanted to so [...]

Homemade Almond Milk

I don’t buy almond milk regularly, but sometimes I like to add it to my smoothies (when it’s not like, ten below). I was talking to a friend a few weeks ago and she had some almonds soaking in a bowl on her kitchen counter. She told me she makes her own almond milk regularly. [...]

Health Food Finds (AKA Impulse Buys)

AKA my-husbands-going-to-kill-me-if-I-keep-shopping-like-this. I wasn’t terrible during this excursion. I went to our nearby (30 minutes away) health food store to pick up some probiotics for my stomach (more on that later) and ended up with a small cart full of goodies.

I wanted to share some of the goodies I got and why I bought them [...]

First Canning Experience

I had a pretty productive weekend….I canned for the first time! I wish I could say I had an overabundance of fresh apples someone gave me from their orchard, but that was not the case. The only people with an overabundance of apples were the fine folks at Costco. I understand that the whole point [...]

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken

This past week was pretty exciting for me….I cooked a whole chicken for the first time and didn’t screw it up. Pretty impressive right?

I’ve been told before that cooking whole chickens is pretty simple and a great way to have chicken on hand throughout the week. For some reason, cooking an entire bird is incredibly [...]

Pimp my Protein Shake

Pimp that baby out with Xanthan gum!!

I’m sure you’re all thinking “xanthan gum sounds like something scary…” or ” would stores even sell such a thing?” or “what the hell is it?”

Xanthan gum is actually not that scary, and yes, stores do sell it believe it or not. It’s generally used as a [...]

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Acorn Squash

Hey guys!!

 

Sorry for the lack of posts, we’ve been out of town. We actually went up to Lake Chelan in Washington for a wedding-it was beautiful!! Did a little wine tasting too. Wine tasting with babies is not as much fun, fyi :).

 

Anyway, I tried something new the other night: [...]

Sticking to a Workout Plan

A workout plan….or “diet” plan. By “diet” I really mean just eating healthy, but this could apply to an actual diet plan too.

I personally don’t have a problem with the workout aspect but the diet, yes yes I do. Not huge problems….but that’s definitely my downfall if I had to choose one. Unfortunately, diet [...]
