Banana Coconut Pudding

I love food and I love to eat. So you would think the whole breastfeeding-eat-all-the-food situation I'm in right now would be heaven. But let me tell you this, getting in enough calories every single day, to maintain my milk supply is really tough! Eating has become a full-time job! ...

Newborn Baby Equipment

Favourite Equipment = No Equipment Before my baby shower, a lot of people were surprised that I didn't register for some typical baby items like a Bumbo, an Exersaucer, a Jolly Jumper, Swings, Activity Mats etc. So I thought I would share a few resources as to why we didn't ...

Postpartum Fitness

If you asked me during my pregnancy, when I would be back to the gym after having a baby, I would have said "6 weeks, maybe 2 months". Oh how naive I was... Aside from the fact that (unknowingly going in) I was a full-on attachment parent, or that our ...

How to Help a New Mom

The first few days postpartum was something I thought about (and worried about) a lot the last few weeks before baby girl arrived. I had no idea how I would feel and what I would want - both physically and emotionally - but I knew that as an introvert (def: ...

Pregnant and Crossfitting

Ever since I was a (highly energetic) little girl, my parents knew that burning off that energy was key to my happiness, and team sports was the way to do it! I started playing soccer at age 5 and never looked back. My dad also wanted to make sure I ...

Pre-Baby Food Prep

Coconut Milk Yogurt

Green Mango Smoothie

Orange Jello

It was 35 degrees here on the weekend (for my friends south of the border, that's 95F) and while that's just gorgeous for most people, being 6 months pregnant made it a little tough to handle! So I spent the weekend enjoying lots of cold food like salads, hard boiled ...
