The best Paleo granola

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? Thank you so much for all of your heartfelt comments and emails after yesterday’s family post. I started a giant checklist with your tips and suggestions and am going to start cranking through and researching while we get a referral to a pediatric GI specialist. Even though it breaks my heart that many of you have experienced something similar, it’s also comforting to hear that I’m not alone. Sending giant virtual hugs and gratitude to all of you. <3

With everything going on, it made me even more thankful that I did some planning before P’s birth and pre-wrote a bunch of posts. I wrote 18 posts + snippets of others, which has been a majority of the blog for the past 4 weeks. I still have some left for a crazy/rainy/writer’s block kinda day, but it gave me the chance to take a break and also provide you guys with solid content while I was away. I’ve been easing back into writing and I feel refreshed to be back, especially with the exciting blog events coming up, like Favorite Things giveaways (start next week!), Post Baby Bod (12-week postpartum fitness plan) and Winter Shape Up (January 25).

Yesterday afternoon, Livi and I tried a new “cupcake” recipe. I put cupcake in quotations because you can’t really call them that. Since I’m dairy free for now to see if it helps with P’s reflux, I’ve been scouring dessert options because my sweet tooth is out of control and it turns out everything has milk or butter in it. I am so thankful for the co-op and their selection of lovely baked vegan treats. To quell the beast yesterday afternoon, I found a recipe on Pinterest for Paleo Pumpkin Cupcakes. It was basically pureed bananas, pumpkin and spices, and while I was skeptical, the photos looked appetizing. 

It tasted like baked baby food.

Baking w liv

The only good part: Liv and I sang Christmas carols while we baked, and she thought they were delicious, so that’s all that matters.

So instead of talking about Paleo baking fails, let’s focus on some wins, like this beloved granola.

Pumpkin banana oat blender pancakes

Hi friends.<3 Hope you’re having a wonderful day and enjoyed a great weekend! Who’s stoked for Thanksgiving?! *raises pie fork in the air* The morning of a holiday, I like to have a protein-heavy breakfast.

Breakfast salad

This can be a thing, right? Helloooo! How’s the morning going? Yesterday, we spent the entire day enjoying the rain that came our way. (I hope all of my east coast friends are staying safe!) We’ve been needing it, and it was a perfect excuse to splash in the puddles before retreating inside to watch […]

Overnight apple pie slow cooker oatmeal

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? A little later blogging today, as technology doesn’t seem to be my friend this week. First the blog server takes a faceplant, and then my internets decide to disappear. It’s funny because I’ve been blogging almost-daily for the past 7 years (!) but I’m probably the least techie person […]

Happy Squatember (Challenge #1) + back in the game

Hiiii! How’s the morning going? It’s a great one over here because breakfast was waiting for me. It’s almost enough motivation to wake up early and crawl out of bed when you know you have something delicious waiting in the fridge. I’ve been going crazy for this new Trader Joe’s Super Seed mix. It has […]

Peanut butter oatmeal cookie granola

 You guyyysssssss. Behold the latest snack obsession.  I was trying to think of another breakfast option that I could make in advance, since eggs don’t travel too well and I’ve been wanting to switch it up from the usual breakfast cookies and cookie dough cereal. Granola instantly came to mind, as it’s one of my […]

Fair Trade Mother’s Day Brunch and giveaway

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope you had some fun Cinco de Mayo adventures. I’ll be back later today with a recap of ours, but in the meantime, how about a little brunch date?? When my friends at Fair Trade asked me to participate in their virtual Mother’s Day brunch, I definitely wanted to join in […]

I’m so so excited for Sarah, Tina, Janae and Kristin; you are amazing. <3 it’s been an interesting afternoon over here. The Pilot is home sick with food poisoning […]

Nana’s famous egg dish

Creme brûlée French toast and Easter adventures. It was a great Easter this year. <3 I remember last year, when we had just moved here and had yet to meet anyone. We had a blast with friends (and were so thankful to them for taking us under their wings), but at the same time, we […]

20 healthy, on-the-go breakfasts

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Your comments this morning were cracking me up. SO many good ones! I’m also glad I’m not alone with totally mishearing song lyrics. “Starbucks lovers” was a debate between the Pilot and myself before we finally googled it. I was just excited because we met at Starbucks. 😉 The […]

Bring on the madness

March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.   (This is […]

Luscious grain-free lemon cake

Hiiii. How’s your Monday going? We’ve had a lovely morning. Still tons of rain, a sweaty BODYPUMP class, and Livi’s gymnastics class, which is one of my favorite things ever.  So, there are a few customs I wish the US would adopt. #1: the siesta. WHY CAN’T WE HAVE A NATIONAL SIESTA? My family is […]
