When I was growing up and my mother would notice some apples sitting in the fridge too long, she would throw them in the oven and bake them.
We loved them!
Presenting my favorite Butternut Squash soup recipe 🙂
It is a delicious hearty soup, and paired with a crusty roll it is a meal unto itself!
I’ve tried different recipes and this is my favorite one. It’s got a hint of sweetness and is packed with flavor.
Trusting your pediatrician is important, but trusting yourself is even more important.
You know your kid better than anyone else.
When my son was 2 he suffered from really bad eczema.
When you’re really sick with a bad head cold and a sore throat, and you’re bedded down under your thick quilt, what do you really crave?
Chicken soup of course! It is a tradition handed down by our mothers and grandmothers and for good reason:
Chicken soup has healing properties and now it’s scientifically proven!
Chicken soup has anti inflammatory properties which will reduce the mucous production in your nose, helping clear up your nasal congestion.
It’ll also soothe your throat and provide important hydration which your body needs to help flush out the infection.
You know when your baby is all congested and can’t breathe and is waking up every hour of the night?!?
SO that happened to me recently and I went to go buy some saline spray to help clear her nose and help her breathe and sleep better.
Anyway I saw this product in the drug store that I had remembered hearing about that worked like a charm.
I actually held off buying it right away because of the price.
I bought a normal saline baby spray and used the bulb syringe I had from her birth and tried that out that evening.
The following are actual comments I have received from nice normal people who think they can say whatever they want just cuz you’re pregnant:
If there’s only one supplement you give your kids, make it vitamin D.
Vitamin D, also known as the “Sunshine Vitamin”, is crucial to the functioning of your body.
It promotes bone growth by increasing Calcium absorption.
