How’s everyone’s week going? Â David got sick here and so I’ve been trying to isolate Aiden and I so we don’t get it, but I think I might be coming down with a cold. Â Yuck. Â Why do we have to get sick? Â You wouldn’t believe the amount of essential oils, herbs and homeopathics that I’ve been downing, so hopefully it won’t be as bad.
Anyways, during nap time this week, I found some good finds online.
Warm Apple Pie Smoothie.Â This recipe hits the nail on the head. Â I feel like smoothies are such a good way to start the day due to their high nutrient content and health benefits, but I cannot make myself drink a cold drink on a cold morning. Â This genius recipe solves that by heating it after you puree it. Â Think: apple pie filling.
Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls. Â I have been having a thing for Thai food in general, but pad thai to be more specific lately. Â I just can’t get enough. Â I feel like I need to have it at least once a week lately. Â KristenÂ substituted quinoa for rice noodles in this popular dish. Â I think it’s calling my name this weekend.
Fresh Turmeric Tonic. Â My mom has been juicing for quite some time now and I always love all her concoctions. Â I’ve also been meaning to add turmeric to my diet due to it’s potent anti-inflammatory properties and just haven’t yet. Â I was going to try golden milk, but I might just try it this way first. Â I really am not sure what turmeric tastes like, but this tonic looks tasty and very healthy.
The 15 vows I make to my son.Â I found this on Babble yesterday and read it because all the information I can get on raising a son is better in my book. Â I’m just kinda winging it everyday, but I feel like we’re off to a good start. Â This is such a beautifully written piece and helped me to realize all the things I need to do as Aiden’s mama. Â I’m such a sap these days that I even got a little teary eyed. Â If you have a son – read this. Â Actually a lot of it can be used for daughters too.
Phone Soap Charger. Â I thought this was an interesting little gadget. Â It charges your phone while it’s UV lights sanitize it too. Â Phones are supposedly more dirty than a public restroom, which is disgusting. Â My baby loves to put my phone in his mouth, so I think the poor thing needs some soap. There you have it. Â I really hope I’m not getting sick, but if I am, I’ll deal. Â David is on the upswing, so he can take care of Aiden.
