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 ...

Sorry I have been so incredibly quiet on here lately. I have been very sick due to creating the new life that will be entering our family. 🥰#pregnant #baby3 #firsttrimesterproblems #sosick #dueseptember2021 #pregnantdietitian #thirdtimesacharm ...

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 ...

This normally would have stressed me out. But I decided to view it from her eyes and also look at it as the situation it was. If she is with me, the mess is contained to my direct eyesight. We washed dishes together for 45 minutes. Talking about each one and how to clean it and when it was just right. Educating her on home ec at an early age. That is wellness all over!!! Wellness for her curiosity and life, wellness for my momma heart to share a dreadful task and make it fun, and wellness in my heart when she looked up and said “lub you momma! So fun!!!”.
Wellness doesn’t have to be just food, activity, and health related. Wellness is in your heart and soul. Wellness is everywhere around us if we change our mindset to view situations as just that. Opportunities to love, teach,grow, learn, and just be. In that stillness or in the pivotal moment in a situation is where we find ourselves and our wellness. ❤️#wellnessjourney #wellnesslifestyle #liveinthemoment #loveyourlife #succumbtolife #choosediscomfort #andfindwellness

Take time to meditate/pray/be alone/contemplate/and just be. It is important to spend time with yourself. As my children grow we talk a lot about taking time to decompress and have feelings and think. My oldest is really good about letting us know if she needs a few minutes and I did not realize until today. In the hustle and bustle of. Fun activity that my Tenley was taking some “time” to just be and think and feel and explore on her own without the help or addition of others. I am so very glad I caught this beautiful moment of her. #itisoktospendtimealone #meditationspace #maketimeforyourmentalhealth #wholenessnotperfection #goodvibrations #lookingthroughmychildseyes #taketimetochill #areyoucomfortablewithyou ...
