What Babies Want, Babies Get

Pregnant bellies are finicky.  After reading about early pregnancy food aversions all over the internet, I know I am not alone in this. Upon waking this morning, I had a banana.  I was hoping it would quell the queasies and maybe I’d be able to get those eggs in. . . no such luck. Around […]

Food Aversions and Morning Sickness

I really believed that this pregnancy would be different.  That I wouldn’t be violently ill this time around. Evidently that was all wishful thinking. . . I’m sick.  Everything stinks.  Food grosses me out.  Smells gross me out.  My kids can’t get in my face because they stink. It’s pretty awesome around here right now. […]

Nummy Treats for Kids

My kids are getting bored with my snack response “fruit or veggies and protein”.  So, I’m trying to make them some special goodies here and there to keep things exciting.  I don’t want to be “that” mom who never gives her kids chocolate chip cookies. 🙂 So- I made chocolate chip cookies using Elana’s recipe.  […]

The End

Of the detox. 🙂  Officially today is the last day, but we are going off plan tonight as it’s Kelsey’s 8th birthday and she’s requested gluten free pizza.  Since Daddy Grok has been craving pizza like a mad man, we are going for it!  I have a feeling he will be sick tomorrow as he’s […]

Day 17

We have reached day 17 of the 21 Day Sugar Detox.  Hubs is doing awesome (which is shocking), I’ve been a bit more lenient now that pregnancy nausea has set in.  I’m still being careful, but I’ve added a bit of sweetener to drinks so that I can get more than water in (Dr’s orders […]

Lunch Boxes & Pregnancy Update

Looks like we are carrying not one but THREE little beans in there. Wowsa.  Can you say pregnancy brain?  I’m also beyond exhausted. . . so forgive my slackness in posting. I’ll try to stay caught up. In our PlanetBox– we have a hard boiled egg, carrot sticks, applesauce, banana, and little balls of goodness […]

SD Day 13 & Primal Pregnancy

Today is day 13. . . for me, it’s getting harder to avoid simple carbs.  I find this ironic, because I wasn’t eating simple carbs before the detox, however morning all day sickness is setting in.  My belly wants plain, boring carbs.  I know from my previous pregnancies with severe hyperemesis that I need to […]

Sugar Detox Day 11 and 12

Day 11 Breakfast- EGGS! Lunch- This crunchy salad!  Organic greens, organic diced carrots, sunflower seeds (salted), olive oil & balsamic, topped with a bit of aged cheddar. Dinner – Red Lobster.  Mama had scallops, shrimp, & chicken.  Daddy had steak & shrimp.  Yum-o. Lunch for the kidlets- coconut flour donut, deli ham, olives, carrots & […]

Sugar Detox Day 10 and Kids Treats

Breakfast was plain scrambled eggs (same ole). Lunch today-  Doesn’t that look DELICIOUS?!?!  It was.  The bottom is 2/3 of a “loaf” of quick bread from Paleo Indulgences.  I toasted it and topped with butter.  Then I added over medium eggs and sliced up a bit of hand made marinated cheese (spicy!).  In the end, […]

Sugar Detox Day 9

The baby wants a bowl of Rice Chex.  No joke, people. (Insert flashback to Look Who’s Talking- baby pulling on the umbilical cord “Get some apple juice down here”.) Mama’s staying strong.  Daddy’s staying strong, except he’s drinking some calorie free vitamin water. . . he has a “problem” with plain water. I’m under Dr’s […]
