Happy Baby Bowl

IMG_1362.JPG

Hi There,

I’ve been having to eat very mindfully lately. Breastfeeding a 3 month old (She’s getting so big!) little girl has me constantly thinking about what I am putting into my body.

I find myself eating the same things over and over again because I know these certain foods don’t make her fuzzy. Hopefully we will get into a nice routine soon where I can experiment with more ingredients, but for now this Happy Baby Bowl is officially my magic potion.

Luckily, it taste freaking amazing so feel free to make it even if you aren’t a breastfeeding mama like me. 🙂

Happy Baby Bowl

  • 1 cup chocolate almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • ground flaxseeds

Add all the ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!

Raspberry Peanut Butter Surprize Smoothie

IMG_7432

The days are counting down until my little baby girl arrives. Her furniture is assembled, her clothes are washed and her stuffed animals are patiently waiting to be squeezed and loved. I am waiting (not so patiently) to meet her, hold her and just stare at her little face.

At this point in pregnany it feels as if time starts to slow down. Every day feels longer than the last and the fact that any moment labor could begin is exciting and terrifying all at the same time. It’s also much harder to do yoga simply because my belly is in the way and movement in general is a bit more challenging. Walking however, has been a new healer of mine. I highly recommend it to women in their third trimester if your back allows it.

Walking is incredibly relaxing. It’s a great time to pop on your favorite playlist, podcast or audio book and just go. Take new routes overtime to keep yourself inspired and stimulated and take your time, there’s no rush to get anywhere.

With all my walking, I’ve also picked up a habit of smoothie bowls after each walk to replenish on nutrients and to cool off my body. I came up with this Raspberry Peanut Butter Surprise yesterday and I know it will become a regular around my house for now on. It’s creamy, sweet and a bit salty and a great smoothie to pair with your favorite granola.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. 🙂

Raspberry Peanut Butter Surprize Smoothie 

  • 1 cup almond milk (or any milk)
  • 1 banana (frozen or not)
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (preferably natural)

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Smoothie Tip: The longer you blend, the smoother the smoothie. 😉

Smooth Operator

After being away for a little over a week my body is craving some simple nutritious food.  Going away is often a great reset for my mind. It gives me time to reflect and be an outsider looking into my current life. I always come back more inspired and stronger then when I left.

After returning refreshed I decided to make sure to do this more often for myself. Not necessarily to go away but to take more moments for myself to check-in, pause and see how I am feeling. I hope you can do the same.

Your clarity is important, take time to let it surface. You, like everyone else, is worth it.

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana, frozen or not
  • 1 pear
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • Additional superfood you have lying around (Hemp, Chia, Flax, etc.)

Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!

Orange Chocolate Smoothie

Orange Chocolate Smoothie

I rarely crave chocolate, especially in the morning but today I decided to sweeten up this morning a notch. 🙂

This smoothie is creamy orange chocolate goodness. If you are looking to add some greens I would recommend throwing a handful of spinach or kale in there as well.

Cinnamon Cream Puff Smoothie

Green Dream + Superfoods

Green Dream

This smoothie comes from my friend and the founder of Strala Yoga, Tara Stiles. It’s from her new book Make Your Own Rules Diet which features easy recipes to stay healthy and radiate through life. The main thing I love about this smoothie (besides it’s amazing taste!) is how simple it is to prepare. Only 4 ingredients! I added some extra superfoods in there today but trust me, the original is perfect the way it is!

Green Dream + Superfoods

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 apple
  • handful of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds (optional)
  • blueberries to top (optional)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Top with blueberries and enjoy!
