Raspberry Coconut Flour Muffins

Whole30 Raspberry Muffins

Don’t be fooled. I am actually kind of lazy in the kitchen for breakfast. We have yogurt and fruit most mornings and muffins are few and far between, but since I love them so! I had to come up with a version that we could eat guilt free so I played around with a few recipes. We don’t strictly follow any diets, but we aim to do a mix of Weston Price(wouldn’t survive without grass fed dairy!) and Whole30 lifestyle so this recipe should pass the test for clean eating, gluten free, dairy free, and all the rest!

You can make with any fresh or dried fruit you have on hand and are extremely delicious fresh out of the oven. I especially love them lathered in kerrygold butter, but you know, to each his own;)

Hope you enjoy and happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Battle the Winter Blues Pt.1

I grew up in Ohio, where Spring doesn’t arrive till May. I loved to ski, and would rejoice over snow, but ohhh by March I would swear I was moving to warmer temps. Well that dream eventually happened (hello Atlanta!), but I still have a tough time with January. It has been dreary and cold all week and when you are confined indoors and cut off from Vitamin D, it is too easy to get in to a chinese and netflix rut, am I right?? So I decided to be pro-active this season with doing things that will help me battle the winter blues with my fists up. I started this over on instagram, but thought it would be good to carry it over here! I’ve got ideas for my little ones integrated in this list too, because poor things are like caged tiger cubs longingly waiting for the sun to come out and play. They have much more imagination than I do though, so usually they are giving me ideas:) Read on and then leave me your ideas please!

Throw kindness around like confetti

1. Surround yourself with quotes that butter your bread - Ones that get you up in the morning, that keep you going through the tough deadlines, that remind you of your purpose, and ones that make you laugh. You should see my mirror…

Heart Waffles - Hot breakfast Idea

2. Make a hot breakfast - Food is my love language….as well as my children’s…and my husband’s. Sooo win win with this one. I get pretty lazy in the kitchen for breakfast. Cold cereal is much easier than getting pots and pans dirty, but you know what, when your belly is full of hot food, you feel like no one can rock your boat now! At least for me…:D Again, food is my love language friends.(Heart waffles were a little ambitious…)

3. Act of service – We can get so caught up in our own daily schedules and routine, and it is so easy to coast through a month without having really looked around us. So many people need to be reminded they are cherished, loved, or appreciated. There are so many ways to share acts of service, so I’d love to hear your ideas??! I picked up some flower bunches and gave them to a few pals for various reasons because unless you are allergic to them, they can remind you there is life beyond winter and that maybe someone was thinking about you;) I also had a mother from Gabe’s school recently who made us a meal for no reason, and I tell you what. That went a long way in my most appreciative heart.

4. Vitamin C - Loads of it.  I’ve been making it a goal to give my family and I plenty of Vitamin C through the fruit of the season! As well as fruit in general. Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries (thanks Sprouts), Omega Swirl, and all those good brain foods that battle the colds and keep you feeling energized.

5. Put on some bold lipstick, and maybe get it all over someone you love. Pucker up.

This is just the start of my list, but I’ll be adding to it! So please, leave your ideas in the comment section below so I can make this stretch till the end of February (when Spring usually arrives in GA;))
Play along on instagram: if you do any of the above over the next few weeks, use the hashtag #BattletheWinterBlues because it is much for fun to troop through this together.

Enjoy the long weekend friends!

Steamline Luggage

Steamline Luggage via IHOD

Mint Steamline Luggage

There are few material things these days that impress me enough to gasp aloud. I mean, I am kind of in the “meh” stage of the fashion world right now. But then there are these sort of things. Oh these had my heart pitter pattering at first glance due to the 1950’s edge and bold splashes of color. My sisters and I used to pretend we were going to college in Connecticut on a train, and there were always vintage suitcases involved. (I think it had something to do with White Christmas…) So of course I want to scoop these right up and put them in my pocket. Just wait till you see the rest of the Steamline luggage colors. You might faint. 

I will continue to share things throughout the year that tickle my fancy because it keeps  the blog spark goin’ for me;)

Maybe I’ll save all my ice cream money for the next year…or maybe 5 and pick up this set. But for now, I at least get to share a coupon code for those of you wise ones already saving for a good piece of lifelong luggage! IHOD10 will get you 10% off your purchase.

Happy mid week!
