Things I’m Loving Lately: Nursing-Friendly Sports Bras and more!

Hey guys! Coming at you with some randomness on this beautiful Friday. I’m sure some of you are gearing up for holiday weekend adventures – safe travels and enjoy! And now, here are some things I’m loving lately.

1) Riese turning 6 months old yesterday!

WOW, time flies. As I wrote on Instagram, I alternate between crying because she’s growing up too quickly and already not our tiny little baby anymore… and delighting in watching her change. It’s amazing to see her learn new skills and mannerisms – I swear she changes every single day!

2) Deck dinners!

Now that it’s still light out when Matt and I eat dinner (usually around 8 after getting Riese to bed), we’ve been enjoying eating out on our deck. So nice to enjoy some fresh air – it makes the evening feel more special to be outdoors! We’re actually having friends over for a BBQ on the deck tonight – can’t wait.

Riese’s First Road Trip! Part 2

If you missed part 1, read that first! Let’s pick back up where I left off – on Saturday morning. We started things off with a yummy brunch!

Then we took Riese into town for her first Continue Reading …

Riese’s First Road Trip! Part 1

Hi guys! We are back in town after Riese’s first road trip! It was a lot of fun – all 3 of us enjoyed a change of scenery and some quality time with Matt’s parents. :) We were in Pittsburgh area for the wedding of one of Matt’s buddies.

Eats + Exercise

Good afternoon! I’ve been loving quinoa salads for lunch lately – anyone else? We made a huge batch of quinoa last week that I’ve been slowly working my way through – nice to have it on hand for easy and fast lunches! Last week’s quinoa salad had chopped kale, leftover shrimp, and radishes with my vegan caesar salad dressing. Delicious combo! Continue Reading …

Hi guys! Thank you for all the potato salad recipe links in the comments of Friday’s blog post (bookmark that post for potato salad recipe ideas in the future!) – so many good ones to choose from!

Recipes Using Basil & Dill

Thank you to Harvest Organics for sponsoring this post! A few weeks ago, Matt and I did our usual spring ritual - we planted our little herb boxes! Well, by "Matt and I", I actually mean: Matt planted our herbs and Riese and I watched/supervised. ;) This year, like most years, we planted basil and dill, since those are our main favorites Continue Reading …

What are Prebiotics and Probiotics?

Hi guys -- I'm taking a pause from lifestyle posts today to talk nutrition. With all the buzz surrounding fermented foods recently, most people probably know that there are "good" bacteria out in the world that can benefit our health. But I've also had plenty of AnneTheRD nutrition clients say "I know yogurt is nutritious because it has good Continue Reading …
