Chocolate-Covered Power Balls

Chocolate Covered Balls

I’m baaaaaaack. [titillating pause, I know]

I took the last month off to do some thinking about … well a lot of things. Big things. Like continuing my maternity leave from occupational therapy. What to do about the blog. How to get into a routine with Grace that was respectful of both of us individuals. Where to set boundaries in parenthood + beyond. Whether or not I should take the leap with some business ideas. I needed clarity.And clarity is what I got.

 

I decided on a few things:

  • I’m going to set limits on how often I post + always post with purpose. I will be posting 2 to 3 times a week. Likely one recipe + one to two articles. This ensures high quality content for you guys and less burn-out for me.
  • I’m going to shift the focus of the blog slightly from simply an AIP recipe blog to a real food [mostly AIP] + lifestyle + motherhood blog that incorporates my passion for non-toxic beauty, outdoor living, & baby-everything. 
  • I’ve started working as a Consultant for Beautycounter. After using their skincare + makeup every day for the last 6 months, I’m in love. My skin has never looked better + I’ve finally found the beauty solution for lowering my toxin load while still getting the benefits of anti-aging formulas, skin-brightening creams + gorgeous make up that fulfills the hole in my heart that Sephora left. I’ll be sharing product reviews, make-up tutorials + the skin care routine that has this new mom looking bright-eyed + bushy-tailed every morning! Hint: It’s the Rejuvenating Night Cream!
  • I’ll be starting a segment on Nourishing Littles, including how/when to introduce foods + the best foods for optimal cognitive and neurodevelopment.As a WELCOME BACK offer, I’m partnering with Power Balls … my #1 AIP Purse Snack of Choice. Each pack contains two balls and 12 grams each of protein, fat and carbs… making it a perfectly balanced snack or treat. My favorite flavors? Vanilla (tastes like cake), Orange Cranberry (tastes like a Starbucks scone) + Snickerdoodle (tastes like a snickerdoodle, duh)
