@rachlmansfield ‘s oatmeal bars have been the perfect before bed snack to get me till morning. I skipped the chocolate chips inside the bars and just added on top so Sullivan could enjoy the bars with me. They are made with rolled oats and almond flour so they are packed with protein and fat to keep me full for hours 💕 This way I don’t wake up starving during the middle of the night breastfeeding sessions. I love making things that are appropriate for Sullivan and I 🥰 #babyledweaning
Stay at home moms are rockstars. Every other weekend Chris works and I’m home with little man for three entire days, justtt the two of us 😳 it’s a struggle to get a five minute shower or heck, even brush my teeth sometimes. So for all you momma’s who do this everyday, I applaud you. Sullivan has been up since 3am, so I’m fueling this day with breakfast eaten at 1pm and endless cups of coffee (hoping that Sullivan doesn’t get too much caffeine through my milk 🤣). The highlights of my day have been vacuuming pieces of glass off the floor from Sullivan smashing a picture frame and catching him as he fell off the couch (I feel like I’m in a circus). So blessed with this mess though 💕
#1 diet was Mediterranean diet once again! This diet focuses on adopting healthy long term habits and emphasizes all food groups (no restriction) but aims for you to choose whole grains, nuts, fruits, veggies, healthy fats, and seafood more often. Keto diet was last because let’s be honest, it’s terrible for your health due to insanely huge amounts of saturated fat being consumed that can lead to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. • • Link here to read all about the BEST and the WORST diets of 2019. https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/02/health/best-diet-worst-diet-2020-wellness/index.html • •"Spending your life weight-obsessed, and going on and off diets, is no way to live," Katz said. "One of the things we hope to convey to the American public is that it's time to grow up about diet and give it more respect. "Grown-ups don't generally expect to 'get rich fast;' they understand the need to work, over time," Katz continued. "But everyone thinks there is some magic formula they haven't tried yet for rapid weight loss. The consensus of the U.S. News judges is a resounding rebuke of that silly idea."
One of my favorite meatless meal options (especially after all that turkey and ham during the holiday season). The spicy chili jackfruit from @sprouts is delish. I haven’t tried making jackfruit on my own yet, anyone have any tips for me? Is it incredibly hard and should I keep buying the ready-to-eat products? 🤣 At my house we aim for 3-4 meatless meals a week. This sometimes just looks like a peanut butter sandwich, veggie burgers, black bean quesadilla,or cauliflower gnocchi. It definitely does not have to be hard to incorporate more plant based meals. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines support healthy, plant forward dietary patterns to support optimal heart health and decreased risk of developing co-morbidities. Not only have plant based meals been shown to be good for your health but they are also more environmentally sustainable! Veggies always win ✔️⭐️ Oh, and I forgot to mention. Chris thought he was eating meat the whole time 🤣
Merry Christmas from this little wiggle worm who likes eating wrapping paper more than playing with any of his toys 🤣
Just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you should skip meals and snacks to save room for the big holiday meals. I keep satisfying and filling snacks on hand to avoid being “hangry” and overeating at meal time which can contribute to weight gain. • • Eatright.org Tip #1 for enjoying holiday meals without gaining weight is: [Don’t Skip Meals] • • “Saving your appetite for a big holiday party or feast? Don’t. Skipping meals during the day may result in overeating. It is especially important to have breakfast, as research shows that those who eat this important morning meal tend to consume fewer calories throughout the day. Include lots of fiber by eating fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Fiber-rich foods are high in volume and will satisfy hunger, but are lower in calories.” • • Cheers to eating balanced meals and snacks all day 💕 #merrychristmaseve
