Our favorite summertime frozen treat. Frozen fresh strawberries from the strawberry farm. Frozen summertime sweetness. Takes longer to eat than a popsicle and offers less added sugars and more fiber. 🙂 Once you start, you can’t stop.

Gardening with kiddos. Normally we have a garden plot and grow tons of veggies. Not this year, due to busy life schedules and a baby on the way, we opted for garden boxes on the patio this year. The girls picked their choice of veggies. They help water, weed, and harvest. Gardening does not have to be hard. You can literally start with one plant and one pot. Grow from there as you feel more comfortable. Gardening doesn’t have to be an all or nothing activity. #gardeningisfun #gardeningwithkids #gardeningiseasy #gardeningcanbegoodforyourhealth #growyourfood #gardenideas #healthylifestyles #healthysteps #betterliving ...

Strawberry picking. We go to our local orchard every year to do this. We talk about strawberries and how much nutrition they carry for us and we talk about how much work goes into growing just one plant. These little dudes are packed with tons of good vitamin C and k, potassium, folate, manganese and due to the tiny seeds (which are actually the fruit); a half cup sliced strawberries provides you with 3g of fiber. Try to eat them fresh as air, water, and excess storage time zaps nutrients. The vitamin C in these dudes helps so much with cellular oxidation, just make sure the farm you pick from doesn’t spray herbicides and pesticides that won’t rinse easily. June is harvest month for most berry farmers. #strawberrypicking #strawberry #freshfruit #kidspickingfruit #healthyliving #healthylivinghabits #teachingchildrenaboutfood #thankfultopassthisdown #babiesandberries ...

Baking cakes, cookies, frostings, etc is super easy, healthy, and tasty with @bluechaitea. Even our sprinkles are dye free. Except the mini unicorns. 🙂 #dyefree #dyefreekids #dyefreebaking #healthybaking #kidsbakinginthekitchen #birthdaycakes #beautifulcakes #healthycake ...

Had the greatest morning with my oldest today. We went out for a mommy daughter date just the two of us. A very rare treat these days. Breakfast @thewatershedcafe and then a visit to cascade falls and hiking down to the river. Ended it with a visit to one of our favorite “aunties” who gifted Lou a sucker for the ride home. Our date was cold but..... we got outside to play anyway. We explored nature and filled not just our bellies but our hearts. In this season of “crazy” don’t forget to fill your hearts. Get outside and share the energy our earth provides us everyday. Find the beauty in the rain and cold. Sometimes it helps to see it through a child’s eyes. #healthyliving #parentingadvice #maketimeforyourkids #natureisamazing #explorethroughmovementandplay #learningaboutlife #healthyrelationshipsmatter #healthyyou #healthychoices #explore ...

It is national Registered Dietitian day. I love this quote!!! It captures the truth and how I feel so very often when people start “educating” me on their diet and why it is important for me to understand their diet. 🙂 #registereddietitianday #educatedwoman #mydegreemeanssomething #dietetitcs #entrepreneurship #mompreneur #womanownedbusiness #womanpreneur #womanwithadegree #businesswomanlife #dietitianapproved #dietitianlife ...

Chicken vegetable curry. Filled to the brim with goodness and health. Making warmer Spicy dishes can be complicated with young ones. However my trick has been to slowly increase the heat as they age. Now they can eat spicier dishes but still pretty mild compared to our heat preferences. This is a great time of the year to make soul warming dishes that are also comfort inducing but not waist line inducing. One thing I keep noticing is how people are talking about slowing down, getting cozy in cozy wear and consuming warmer heartier dishes. No where in that statement includes physical activity to help keep that immune system boosted and your circulation going to help clear out your daily toxin load. Our bodies are amazing but we need to give it the tools to be amazing. So don’t forget to get that heart rate up, make those muscles burn, heat up the food to ignite the engines, and of course stretch all day long. ❤️#healthylifestyle #dontbecomeacouchpotato #eatforhealth #butenjoyittoo #healthyfoodideas #healthyfood #fightthewinterbulge #indulgebutdontbulge #inmoderation #chickencurry #currydish #getinmybelly #myfamilylovescurry ...

You can have your healthy life style and eat your ice cream too! Foods should not be classified as “good” or “bad”. This way of thinking brings us into negative thinking patterns and a “this for that” mentality. Wellness is about truly balancing. To be balanced one must fill the scales with all “types” of food, activities, mental health, spiritual health, celebration, and even deprivation. Being healthy is about creating a strong foundation and allowing yourself to build it block by block, one at a time. So make sure you are balanced. I sure do! 🥰 #wellnessisnotdeprivation #wellnessjourney #whatlooksrightformemightnotbeforryou #healthisaboutfoundationandcontinuation #strongfoundations #wellness=balance #happyhearts ...
