Oil Pulling

I shared previously about how I started adding oil pulling into my daily routine of natural oral care. Oil pulling is a way to rid your mouth of bacteria and other toxins by using the natural properties of coconut oil to pull them out of your gums and crevices. This cleaning method can improve your over all gum health, decrease bad breath, and keep your teeth white. read more

It’s all in how you start

coffee mornings day

I was thinking… The start of your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.

If you start your day eating something healthy, then you are more likely to continue through lunch and dinner.

I thought I would share my start of this Monday morning. (Not perfect by all means)

I nurse the littlest one at 1:30 am, 4:00 am, and 6:30 am.

The big kid woke up at 7:30 am, knocking on her door – this is actually pretty early for her!

I change the littlest one’s diaper and clothes (because her cloth diaper leaked a little – should have put on a night time diaper before bed… Doh!)

Put in my contacts, so I can see what I’m actually doing and head downstairs.

Brew a cup of regular coffee in my Kuerig – my only one for the day. I put in stevia, bentonite clay, and almond milk.

Little one gets fussy – because she is tired, so I nurse her again and put her in the swing for a nap.

Big kid is asking to watch Ariel, so I put on a movie for her while I get breakfast going. You have to cheat somewhere!

I cook a 3 egg omelet in my “OrGreenic” pan in some coconut oil, a little cheese, salt and pepper.

Big kid asks for tomatoes for breakfast, so I fix her plate with some grape tomatoes, sliced cheese, and 1/2 a banana.

I give her some Green Pastures chocolate cream cod liver oil blend and her Animal Parade vitamins.

I take Green Pastures cod liver oil blend in a capsule and my Perfect Prenatal.

Finally, 8:00 am breakfast is ready for me! I get to sit down – but now Big kid wants to watch Barbie – so change the Roku to Barbie and eat my yummy tummy eggs and finish my coffee.

Next is my 10 minute workout.
