  • 📖 My Story: Part #2 📖 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life seemingly went back to normal as I knew it after my health scare my junior year. (See Part #1). I was ready to move forward and enter into my college years and into my first career as an elementary school teacher. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through that time I would notice on and off that when I ate certain foods they seemed to “run right through me”. And that my gut maybe wasn’t “pleased” with my choices. But, let’s be honest, it tasted good, and I wasn’t really gaining any extra weight, so it couldn’t have been that bad right?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Flash forward a few years into teaching, I came down with what appeared to be hives all over my chest, neck and face. The doctors thought I was having an allergic reaction and prescribed me steroids to calm it down. After a few days, it hadn’t gotten any better. In fact, it was getting worse. Which is when they decided to do a strep test and realized I had been misdiagnosed and actually had a case of scarlet fever, which is caused by the same bacteria as strep throat. Thus, after being on a steroid for several days, I was now put on an antibiotic protocol as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say at the time, I had no idea about how I could use probiotics, diet or supplements to support me through this. I just thought once I finished my course of meds I’d be good as new. However, what I learned the hard way was that after years of not caring for my gut the way I should, and after countless rounds of antibiotics in high school and now, my gut, and in turn, my body had finally reached their tipping point. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Popsicles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sticky fingers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sweaty hair. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No pants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what most days entail right now, and we are soaking it all in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I spent some time this morning refreshing a blog post I wrote last summer about this time entitled “9 Front Porch Activities for Toddlers”. While we love getting out and about and exploring our community this time of year, we also love hanging right outside our own front door. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The post highlights different learning, sensory and family activities with minimal prep you can do alongside your little one on those day’s you just feel like laying low. And, while they are geared toward toddlers, all are still things that are certainly appropriate for preschool and even early elementary as well. {Link in profile}. .

  • 🥬 Collard Greens in Underwear 🥬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We had a play date at our house this morning with two other little ones. Their mother and I coordinated themed learning time for the kids in Spanish, and divvied up the work. She brought over instruments and taught us a new song all about vegetables. I planned this vegetable themed craft for the kids to do together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After our hard work, we all enjoyed these little collard green wraps I whipped up this morning with just some simple organic turkey and avocado inside for snack. And can I just say - every kid at least gave them a whirl - and some ate more than one! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The power of play with veggies is real ya’ll. Not only that, but so is the power of collaborating with other mamas! We both brought our giftedness to the table this morning, and it made for so much fun. .

  • 🍦Double tap if you love a good ice cream sandwich🍦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made some Vanilla Almond PB ones today that made my 3-year-old actually pause after the first bite and say “Thank you, mommy. I love you!” 😘, without prompting. Manners and affection? I consider that the ultimate seal of approval right there 😉. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the “sandwich”, I used some of our @nutsolaofficial Vanilla Almond DIY Superfood Bars that I whipped up yesterday to have on hand for snacks for the week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the “ice cream”, I whisked together the following:
1 cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup PB
2 TBSP Honey
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
A Pinch of Sea Salt
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once smooth, I poured the mixture into ice cube trays to freeze. Then I placed the frozen cubes into a blender to create this heavenly creaminess you see here. 🍨
