Products I Recommend for New Babies + Expectant Mamas

Hi guys! I know how helpful it was for me to read product recommendation blog posts from others when I was pregnant and putting together my baby registry, and then when I was scrolling around the internet at 3 a.m. with a brand new baby. So, I thought I’d throw my own recs out into the world in the case they might be helpful! Obviously every baby Continue Reading …

My First Solo Baby Weekend

Hi guys! Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that Riese and I successfully made it through our first totally solo weekend! Matt left early on Friday morning for a bachelor party and didn’t get back until last night around 7:30, and my family was all out of town as well. The bad news? I’m STILL sick… which is unsurprising given the Continue Reading …

This Week’s Easy Eats

Hi guys! Happy Friday. It has been a bit of a blech week over here as I’m STILL fighting off this stupid cold! Apparently when you have a baby and you get sick, you never get enough sleep to get better… ugh. At least soup always helps, right? Matt decided some delivery pho was in order on Wednesday night – it hit the spot and helped soothe my Continue Reading …

Prenatal Blueberry Oatmeal Power Bites

Hi, friends! I'm excited to continue to partner with New Chapter to keep the conversation going about prenatal and postnatal nutrition. Last time I shared my postnatal eating habits, and today I wanted to talk a bit more about staying on top of nutrition while pregnant. I'm also including this fun and nutritious recipe for prenatal Blueberry Continue Reading …

Weekend Snapshots

Hi guys! I’m coming to you a day late with my weekend recap because I’ve been fighting off a bad cold… I had a couple AnneTheRD nutrition client calls yesterday afternoon that I couldn’t bail on, but I decided to take the morning (when I would normally be writing my blog post) off, in between baby feeding, to try to get a little extra rest because Continue Reading …

Fitness Week in Review

Hi guys! Since the last couple posts have been all about food, and since this week was a fun one workout-wise, let’s talk fitness! I got in more movement this week than I have in a long time and the endorphins felt fabulous. My body is really starting to feel noticeably better in terms of postpartum recovery… this was the first week where running Continue Reading …

Healthy One Handed-Snack Ideas for Moms (and Dads!)

Thank you to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn for sponsoring this post! If there’s one thing I’ve learned since becoming a mom, it’s how to eat with one hand. Our daughter, Riese, loves being held, so Matt and I have gotten very used to holding her in one arm (or in my case, feeding her with one arm) and eating meals and snacks with the other! Since I know I Continue Reading …

All the Breakfast Foods + Mindful Eating as a New Mom

Get pumped for all the breakfast foods… because apparently that’s all I’ve eaten recently. Last night Matt and I decided on breakfast for dinner – we wanted something simple and fast and this fit the bill. I love breakfast for dinner – we hadn’t done it in too long! I hadn’t had an omelette in forever, so I hung out and fed Riese while Matt Continue Reading …
