Farro!!! An amazing whole grain that is pretty much unknown. It can be used in salads, soups, in a place of rice or pasta. It has moderate amounts of protein for a whole grain.
It is naturally high in iron and calcium, and is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and the B vitamins.
Make sure to o look for whole farro not pearled. 🙂
This a dinner includes chicken from the instapot. Sliced organic apples with a shoot of lime and a small dash of ginger and sugar over the top. The salad is farro cooked in chicken bone broth water and apple cider vinegar with a touch of ginger, garlic, Maca, and salt. Then paired with diced red bell peppers, diced cucumber, mint, peas, carrots, homemade ranch and vinegar. #delicious #nutritiousanddelicious #dietitianapproved #cytokinestorm #nothere #strengtheningourmicrobiomes #thismommacancook #dietitianchefmommy #healthylivingmovement #healthyfirst #healthylifestyle #healthyfoods

Hard morning of chores, playing, and unloading 150 blocks from the swat truck earned us a break to play in the pool. Followed up with sunbathing on the warm patios and our favorite afternoon snack: Frozen organic blueberries. ❤️❤️❤️#normalizehealthyhabits #normalizehealthyeating #healthykidsnacks #worklifebalance #teachingchildrenskillsforsuccess #hardworkpaysoffs #diyqueen #healthylivingisbeautifulliving #balancedlife @ Saint Croix Falls, Wisconsin ...

Monday Monday..... For most this day resumes the rat race of corporate America. For me it is actually like a Saturday morning. My hubby goes back to work and clean up from the big weekend projects commences. The girls and I always seem to have a very relaxing Monday morning before we hit the learning, project list, and errands hard. We each have an opportunity to change how our lives feel and look. We, as a family, took a leap and are living a little different than most. #changeyourlife #changeyouroutlook #neverfearhardwork #entrepreneurlife #notyouraveragemom #mondaymonday #alittleprayerandasong #jackjohnson #goodcoffee #goodcompany❤️ @ Saint Croix Falls, Wisconsin ...

Sourcing our ingredients for our “ice cream shop”. The girls and I moved their indoor kitchen to the outdoors this spring and have been busy making fun! Every morning when I clean up the flowers for the day the girls collect the droppings and place them in their kitchen as ingredients. Then throughout the day we make soups, ice cream, poke bowls, and power bowls. 😂
We are constantly growing their imagination through play and nature items. They even have a “smasher” for the petals to make colors and paint the concrete with their concoctions.❤️ #healthylifestyle #growingupnatural #educatingwithlove #educatingwithnature #loveofcooking #startingthemyoung #outdoorplaytime

@mynaturalforce you stole my tastebuds today! They released their dark roast and I am now addicted. Thank you for the free sample! I passed it on to another client, who also loves dark roast, and they were so in love as well. You outdid yourselves. #naturalforcecoffee #darkroastlovers #darkroastcoffee #cleancoffee #notoxins #healthierforyourgut #3rdpartytested #coffeelover☕️ #toxinfreeliving ...

This will be one of the rawest “shares” I make. Today is the last day on my breastfeeding journey. To some this might seem gross or unsightly. To others this may resonate and to some you might just skip by it. My littlest is 18 months old. We decided it was time. I have had the hardest time with my breast feeding journey and had finally gotten to the best place with it for both her and I. This day in some women’s lives is a day for celebration and it is for me but also a day of deep sorrow as we come to the end of this crazy beautiful journey. I know I may never take this journey again with another child and the bond between us is amazing! The bond won’t change and we will grow through this just like my first little one and I did. But that doesn’t make today any easier. Breastfeeding is an individual journey shared with generally a momma a baby and most likely a pump. It is a hard journey where you feel so alone some days and other days on top of the world. It is excruciating at times and peaceful at others. Today is both. So to all those mommas out there that may be at this point or thinking. Know it will get easier and your hormones will play on your heart and in your mind like crazy for a few weeks but it gets better. So snuggle extra hard with those little babes and hold them a little harder during this time of transition. Give yourself grace. #endofbreastfeedingjourney #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeeding #fedisbest #rawpost #ilovemybabies #letsbereal #cryingfromabrokenheart #happyheart #keepingitreal #somewontlikethis #thatisok #myjourney ...

Oh this got me misty eyed, all choked up. I get it. For some moms its the most necessary yet heartbreaking decision! It has to come to an end at some point, it's just so hard to know when because there's pretty much no universal right or wrong time. Finn is turning one year on Friday and I've never taken our nursing relationship for granted. This evening it occurred to me how much I look forward to our bedtime nursing session. Right now he only nurses at bedtime and in the overnight hours. For a couple reasons, next week I plan to wean him off the overnight feeds and I'm worried he'll subsequently stop his bedtime feeds. 18 months is a really good run, you went the long haul! Grieve, but be so proud, momma!!

I was never able to nurse with devyn and gave up. I can imagine the emotions! It's a beautiful thing! Hugs to you Momma! ❤🤗

Hugs!

Want a quick and convenient dinner idea. I will admit that these items are definitely not the healthiest but when in a pinch, they are better than stopping for take out or using a frozen meal. 🙂 ...
