Recent Eats

Hi guys! Thank you so much for all the tips and advice regarding yesterday’s post about the hip/lower back/glute pain I’ve been having lately related to pregnancy. I appreciate the advice, and I just made an appointment for an assessment next week with a local PT that specializes in women’s health. Hoping she can help – fingers crossed!

In the meantime, I’m working from my standing desk as much as possible (until my feet hurt, anyway…) and also treating myself to a yoga class over lunch today. Sitting for long periods of time certainly doesn’t help the situation!

Anyway! Recent eats. I’m still obsessed with eggs. I love eggs normally, but we appear to be having a serious moment recently. Yesterday for lunch I was working from home and decided to do brunch – we had some leftover bacon and green pepper/potato hash that Matt made over the weekend, so I paired that with two fried eggs and some microwave wilted spinach that you can see peeking out under there too. Yum!

I’m also loving meatballs lately – I know, random – we had these amazing lamb meatballs (via Sun Basket – affiliate link for 3 free meals) earlier this week. The tahini sauce really made them! It reminded me that we need to make our Greek Lamb Burgers (<- recipe) again soon… one of my all-time faves and so easy! sorry for the dim>

Keeping this short and sweet today – time to get back to it. See you guys back here tomorrow!

p.s. For those of you who were also horrified by what happened in Charlottesville over the weekend, but who can’t get out there in person to protest, I wanted to share a link to an article about organizations supporting the fight against white nationalism and racism in Charlottesville to keep in mind for donations. If you have any other helpful resources/links to share, please do so in the comments. We have the choice, every moment of every day, to act with kindness and love rather than hate. I hope you’ll take a moment today to spread some love in your own way, however small – it always makes a difference, and together our actions will add up to big change. xo

    This article was written by a co-worker of mine on how to talk to your kids about race, etc. It’s very, very helpful! Thought I would share if anyone is interested :)

      Awesome, thank you for sharing – I will definitely be reading that one! Raising our daughter to be tolerant and accepting is very, very important to me. <3

    I really hope they’re able to help you and give you relief! We love eggs, and I’m so glad I eat them more often than I used to. So tasty and satisfying!

    I’d also recommend checking out some of the resources at https://spinningbabies.com. Sometimes pain in pregnancy is caused by misalignments, for obvious reasons. They specialize in helping women restore the balance in their muscles and alignment in the pelvis, which could help ease your pregnancy pain and possibly even lead to a better birth experience. I personally benefited from their tip about sitting on a partially inflated pysio ball whenever I was in the car.

    The New City Arts in Cville is planning a letter writing campaign of positivity. Those living outside of Charlottesville are encouraged to send notes to P.O. Box 1293, Charlottesville, VA 22902.

    Anne,

    Education is everything. My heart and mind go out as well to the community of students
    at The University of Virginia who dwell in the common spaces, walk the Grounds,
    and strive to learn to make the world a better place. The Academic Village there is
    undergoing a renovation of the rooms on the Lawn which are called the ‘best front yard in the
    world’. Thanks to you I have found a way to donate to the ‘Lawn Challenge’ – the restoration
    of the historical rooms where the students live. Let there be light indeed in Charlottesville- the
    light of the moon on the Rotunda as students gather to honor tradition on the Lawn of their
    beloved University.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    Thank you for the link! It’s so important that we all do our part to counter the hate, revise and bigotry.

    Thanks, I donated!
    Good luck with the PT appointment, I think that’s a good choice, let us know how it goes!
