Increase your Breast Milk Supply With Breakfast

Increase your breast-milk supply with this delicious, hot, and savory breakfast.
Make a bowl of steel cup oats using Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats leaving out the salt. 
Add a tablespoon of brewers yeast made from red beets, add a tablespoon of ground flax seed, and a slice of coconut butter on top (sometimes I also add a tablespoon or two of natural peanut butter and mix well). On the side I have a cup of almond milk to pour over the top of this scrumptious breakfast and a cup of 'Mother's Milk Tea' (although I enjoy Red Raspberry tea far more). 
This really does work (at least it does for me). I've been doing this for a month and a half now and I do notice a difference in my supply on days when I start with this breakfast vs days that I don't.

Gluten and Dairy free Smores!

 Bear loves Smores. The dairy in chocolate and the dairy and gluten in graham crackers do not love him back. Using S'moreables graham crackers (gluten and dairy free), Enjoy life Mega Chunk chocolate (dairy free), and Jett Puffed Marshmallows (dairy and gluten free), you can make your own delicious and safe summer campfire treat.
First, put down one S'moreable square
Next, put a couple of chocolate chunks on the square.
Then, top the chocolate with a campfire roasted marshmallow (or pop it into the microwave)
Top with another S'moreable square..
And Enjoy!

No Yolk Deviled Eggs

I'm back!... again. Our Panda was born 4-14-13 and we are doing well. I had to be away because I went on bed rest shortly before his birth and for two weeks after. That being said, here we are.
During my pregnancy I needed to increase my protein intake. Due to many dietary restrictions there was not much I could do. A nutritionist suggested this wonderful recipe: 
Take a hard boiled egg, 
cut it in half. 
Throw away the yolk. 
Put a spoonful of hummus in the egg yolk hollow,
 top with roasted paprika, 
and salt to taste.
I love serving them on top of a fresh salad with lunch. Enjoy!
