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 [...]
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 [...]
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 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 [...]
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: [...]
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 [...]
Hey guys! So, as you know I’ve been trying to eat healthier and hopefully drop a couple lb.’s in the process. That being said, I’m not following any particular diet or being super restrictive with my calorie intake because I am still breastfeeding and don’t want to dry up!
My husband and I are pretty [...]
So, I’m still trying to figure out just how much food I’d need in order to prep my meals for the week. I think this week I way underestimated how much food it takes to make lunch and dinner for 5 days. I’m pretty sure the food I prepped will last me, oh about 2 [...]
Hey guys! The past few days have been pretty good on the workout front. I’ve been able to lift weights Monday and Tuesday which is great. It’s always somewhat of a challenge because I bring Brooke with me to the gym…like literally, carry her around in a car seat. It gets a little weird sometimes…me [...]
Hey guys! So, I’ve been doing some thinking since my last post and I’ve decided to scratch the Paleo challenge. Maybe one of these days…but right now I don’t think it’s a good idea. I think I’d be setting myself up for failure which is never a good idea. So, instead I’m just focusing on [...]
