This post is beyond long over due! My apologies.
In the last week I have been baking, cooking and really trying to be consistent with creating family dinners that are not boring and different from one night to the next, which I typically don’t have enough time for, but I do it anyway.
My time limits are defined by my 4mth old, when she wants to eat she eats, and I would not have it any other way because she is happy and healthy, and she is growing well and gaining weight=a happy mommy!
We have hit the teething months of her life, in full swing. I thank God everyday when I wake up in the morning and when I go to bed, for every single thing I can think of and all the love we are blessed with especially the individuals my everyday life surrounds.
In between feedings I made blueberry banana bread.
all purpose organic flour
coconut milk yogurt
everything we use is organic. Head to FB or Twitter to check out pics!
This bread is amazing, and the most moist bread. I love adding coconut milk yogurt to any bread!
Makes a world of difference.
Next bread I am making is good old pumpkin bread, but with a twist adding honey and homemade granola, next weeks project!
Even though life is very busy with 3 beautiful kiddos to take care of, I have such a passion for food and cooking, we all know from reading my blog I love baking.
Cooking lately, well always can get boring for us for anyone. We are limited in the ingredients we can use everyday due to the food allergy awareness. Self educated.
But lately when making eggs I am trying to switch it up a bit. I love a good egg white omlet, I love vegetarian refried beans. I love as many veggies as possible, we watch out for and limit lagumes of any kind. So that leaves lots of peppers, garlic, onions, greens, potatoes of all kinds, and root veggies too!
So much more I just cannot list it all.
So this week being that I am back to a high protein eating and weight lifting is important for me, I have a full life. 3 kids, and the most important of all my own physical tasks is breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is always the best for my kids. With FOOD ALLERGIES being a constant in our lives, Breastfeeding is very important. Our children cannot handle other powder milks, it just doesn’t work. I always keep an open mind, but we always end up waisting money and spending time trying a formula that ends up messing up my babes stomach. I prayed long and hard for breastfeeding to be nothing but a triumphant experience. It has been so far. THANK YOU GOD!!!
With my husband working evenings a lot, its a little difficult for me to not be stuck on the couch and having the kids eating leftovers or whatever food is okay for them to eat. I am working really hard to have my oldest eat more veggies, but its difficult. I wish he could mentally let go of the his past with food, but its a huge part of who he is for now, he is only 6 so he has a lot more making good history with food ahead of him. We recently discovered that one of his food joys-vegan chocolate is no longer acceptable for his tummy. He is old enough now to understand food and to tell us when something is not working. So I instead am creating new recipes that fit our family. One of my favorite is to make vegan caramel. No cream in it at all. Its simple, agave nectar, safflower oil or coconut oil, and a little tiny splash of rice milk or coconut milk. I can make it a sace or a salted caramel and he loves it.
Anyway, I hope to post much sooner, head to facebook or twitter for our pics!!
Sorry it took so long, but I know my readers understand, incorporating a busy work from home life along with the other duties I have to complete daily as a Mother, well I am so busy. Things will even out eventually, I am considering myself lucky to have a husband who loves to help and be apart of our journe, otherwise I would be pulling my hair out, & I do not look pretty like that!! lol
