Warmer Weather Means Active Time!

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!


Wow!! I love living in a place with 4 seasons, but I’ll admit that I’m ready for some warmer weather!

We have been getting outside the last few days and the girls have been BEGGING us to take them to play tennis. Today was so beautiful, we couldn’t say no!

It brought back so many memories for me… I know my mom would have been excited to see the girls play.

When we were taking a break, I tried a brand new product I just discovered. Spoiler alert, it was AMAZING!

Keto Friendly King Cake!

So there are times that it becomes obvious to me just how deeply Louisiana culture has pushed into my personality, even though I haven’t lived there in many years now!

What kind of things you say?

Like when it’s cold, I want Gumbo, including potato salad!

And in late January, I start wanting King Cake in time for Mardi Gras!

If you aren’t familiar with Mardi Gras, it means “Fat Tuesday” which is meant to be a bit of a party before the Christian season of Lent begins (which itself leads into Easter). read more

Keeping God’s Word Close

“I sought the Lord, and He answered me and delivered me from my fears.” Psalms 34:4

My friend Renee Robinson made these pillowcases for me  I was so touched by her story.

She started making these scripture pillowcases because her son had trouble sleeping at night… and the verses helped calm him.

Each of my girls and Anderson now have their own verse pillowcase and we read them each night. It has already had such a peaceful effect for us during our night time routines.

If you know anyone who has kids who struggle with fear or needs to be reminded to trust in God, these are the perfect gift. read more

but she decided she was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired… so she did something about it! 

She shares her story for us: 

Wow!!!!  My name is Rachel.  As I write my story, I can’t help but cry. I am so grateful for what ItWorks has done for me and my family.  read more

Low-Carb Sausage Balls

New Year’s Eve is one of those events that a lot of people plan to stay up late and ring in the new year with friends and family. 

For us this year, we enjoyed a simple night together with our family of five (still getting used to staying that!) 


While everyone is watching the ball drop… we enjoyed these little sausage balls (see what I did there, haha!) 


I hope you enjoy this low carb recipe that will keep you on track with reaching your New Years goals and keep you satisfied too! 


Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Add eggs and spices to a bowl and beat until well combined
  3. Add all other ingredients to egg mixture
  4. Using a cookie scoop and your hands roll sausage mixture into 20-25 sausage balls
  5. Place sausage balls on a cookie sheet. I used my cast iron baking pan. 
  6. Bake for 16-20 minutes
  7. Store covered in the fridge. 

Pro Tip! This actually freeze really well. I ended up freezing them in groups of 3 or so they are easy to warm up on a cold winter day for a fast (and Keto Friendly!) breakfast on the go! read more

6 MUST Haves for New Moms [+ One Week Post Partum Update]

I can’t believe my little guy is a week old already!

I didn’t really think about the fact that having a baby over 5 years from my last would mean some different products and options would be out there. I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE things that I didn’t have during my last delivery that made so much difference this time!

Here’s My Top 6 Picks for New Mommies!

💫 One Week Post Partum Update 💫 My Top 7 Picks for New Mommies ✅

Posted by Angela Roshto Parker on Monday, December 3, 2018

 

Here’s The Breakdown!

 

6 Must Have Items for New Mommies

 

 

After Ease Supplement: Helps naturally manage your afterbirth pains. I had a lot of afterbirth pain with my second baby, so I wanted to try something this time for it. This made SO MUCH difference! I had to use very little pain medication thanks to this.

 

Soothie Gel Pads: Definitely getting started nursing again after 5 odd years was a little painful! These soothing gel pads are so helpful in between

 

Lily Pads: Silicon nipple shield helps ensure you don’t leak as well as protecting against rubbing against your clothes. These have been super useful!

 

Probiotics: I struggled with constipation during the pregnancy and afterwards on all of my births, so I wanted to stay on top of it this time. Thankfully I found a great probiotic with multiple strains that really helped keep things moving for me! Even better, probiotics help keep my immune system healthy during the recovery and I am able to pass some of these onto my baby too, so yay!

 

Chocolate Greens: We all need good vitamins and minerals, especially during a recovery! I wish I had had a great green superfood blend 5 years ago, these are my go to morning products along with…

 

Keto Creamer: This creamer is great in coffee, tea, smoothies, and Keto Hot Chocolate! It’s full of healthy fats and collagen to help my skin rebound as well as make sure I’m not getting hungry (without having to pig out).

 

And at least in my case, my girl are my #7! Having them has really changed this whole process, I’ll be making a full post about it soon 🙂

 

What were your favorite things that helped during your first few weeks with a new baby?

Two Healthy Halloween Treats

Can I be honest… Halloween isn’t my favorite. 
Because all I am hearing lately is…

“Can I have a piece of candy?” 
“Can I have a piece of candy?” 
“Can I have a piece of candy?”

 

I usually can avoid this battle altogether… but during Halloween…

CANDY IS EVERYWHERE!!! 

Besides the obvious… SUGAR IS MY NEMESIS. 

 

It really can be detrimental to our health (and our kid’s health too!)

 

When our kids eat too much sugar they are more likely to get sick, get cavities, and just BE CRAZY PEOPLE!! 

 

So here are some  Healthy Halloween Treats  my girls get excited about (without any of the sugar!)

 What are your BEST tips to help your kids limit the sugar during Halloween?
