Clean Eating: What CAN I Eat?

Clean Eating: What CAN I Eat?

Congratulations… you decided to “eat clean.”  What happens on day 4 when the cravings hit (and they will?)  How about when the fun of new recipes wears off? You start to miss your favorite processed foods (cake, anyone?).  Packing a lunch is hard when making sandwiches isn’t an option. And how are you supposed to go without your favorite pasta dish?  Not to worry.  I’ve got your back.  Here are some of my favorite clean eating substitutions. Pasta Eating clean…

Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

You would do anything for your kids, wouldn’t you?  Of course you would.  I’ve found that motherhood has led me some places that I never thought I would go, all in the hunt for the best for my kids. For example… Two years ago I had no idea what clean eating meant. I thought that maybe it meant washing your fruits and vegetables.  In fact, I was clueless about most of the things my family was eating, other than considering…

10 More Things to Buy at IKEA for under $50

10 More Things to Buy at IKEA for under $50

So, this funny conversation happened at my house the other day.  We were sitting on the back deck, eating fajitas, and I had just written my first post about things to buy at IKEA. As a fun conversation starter, I asked my family to guess which 10 items I had recommended. A hilarious conversation then ensued, where every member of the family was shocked and horrified that I had forgotten to include their favorite items.  They asked me to reveal…

My 10 Favorite IKEA Items under $50

My 10 Favorite IKEA Items under $50

My first experience at IKEA was like being lost in a wonderland.  It’s rare that I walk through any store and feel like everything around me is a bargain.  It’s also rare that I walk through a store where I am so thoroughly entertained by the displays. As you weave your way through the levels of IKEA shopping, you will encounter a variety of different rooms, or even whole “apartments”  that are completely staged like actual living spaces, down to…

Giving Birth 3 Ways: Hospital Labor and Delivery

Giving Birth 3 Ways: Hospital Labor and Delivery

Three hour into my labor with my fourth baby, I was still in my shower.  As in, at home, in the master suite I share with my husband.  I was hibernating, and trying to put off going to the hospital for as long as possible. Why?  Because after giving birth twice and in a birthing center, I was really nervous about a hospital birth. Like, really, really, nervous. Labor and delivery in the hospital felt scary, and out of my…

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Birth Center Experience

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Birth Center Experience

So, I should probably start by telling you that baby #3 was born in a birth center.  That birth center happened to be overseas, in Bulgaria.  So, there way be some things that aren’t quite the same as in the USA.  Giving birth, however, is universal! Having a baby overseas was an adventure into the unknown!  It was also my first labor and delivery in a birthing center. First up, a quick definition.  A birthing center is a medical facility…

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Home Birth Story

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Home Birth Story

I remember the first time I was pregnant.  I was 24, and while the idea of having an infant wasn’t worrying to me, the idea of labor and delivery was fairly terrifying.  The unknown was definitely looming large! When I finally went into labor, I remember being out in my neighborhood, walking the blocks because I didn’t know what else to do. Anyone relate?  If you’re expecting your first baby, I’m willing to bet you know exactly what I am…

Meal Planning: How to Plan and Shop Once for 2 Weeks

Meal Planning: How to Plan and Shop Once for 2 Weeks

A few weeks ago, I was driving home from grocery shopping at 7pm.  All 4 kid were in the car, hungry.  One was screaming.  Another was asking every 32 seconds for a snack (he’d already had 3).  A third kid was dramatically moaning every time the baby stopped screaming long enough to suck in a breath. Ironically, the back of the van was full of food.  $250 worth, in fact. Can you relate? I’m guessing you can! This story has…
