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!

 

Here’s The Breakdown!

 

6 Must Have Items for New Mommies

Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips with Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

 

You find yourself REALLY wanting a sweet snack but knowing that you REALLY don’t need all the sugar?

 

That’s like my whole life right now! Managing my tendency toward gestational diabetes means that I really can’t deal with sugar or carbs so I’ve been experimenting!

 

Here’s my latest creation!

 

Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

4 Low Carb Tortilla (I LOVE this one!)
1 Tablespoon of Butter melted
2-3 Tablespoons of stevia blend
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

 

Directions

Brush melted butter on each side of tortillas.

Mix stevia & Cinnamon together.

Cut tortillas into 6 triangles each and dip each side into stevia/Cinnamon blend.

Bake at 350 degrees on baking tray covered in parchment paper for 10 minutes.

 

Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

8 oz of cream cheese softened
1 tablespoon of stevia blend.
1/4 teaspoon on cinnamon.
1 Tablespoon of chopped pecans.

 

Directions

Beat together cream cheese, stevia, and cinnamon until smooth.

Fold in pecans.

 

Note: The stevia blend I use is a cup for cup substitute for sugar (this one is a good choice if you want to try it!). You can use any sweetener you like, just sweeten to taste.

Why is it so important to pay attention to how much sugar we eat?

Sugar has been identified as leading to cancer, obesity, heart disease, diabetes… and can even make you age quicker.

But one thing that most people don’t realize is how SNEAKY sugar really is!

Where is sugar hiding?

Sugar is found in almost ALL of our foods these days.

And it isn’t just sugar that we have to be aware of… it is everything that turns into sugar after we eat it… namely “Carbs.” read more

1 Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug

Chocolate makes everything a little better doesn’t it?

I’m always on the hunt for chocolate snacks that satisfy with my sweet tooth without overloading me on the sugar!

 

Note: If you didn’t know, I have struggled with Gestational Diabetes with each of my pregnancies, here’s some info on how I beat it naturally!

 

Given my history and just being honest with myself, if I don’t find sweet things (with chocolate hopefully!) that is satisfying I’m going to end up chowing down on cookies or ice cream.

 

Thankfully I have a new favorite (and SIMPLE) recipe!

 

Check out my recipe for a 1-Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug!

 

 

 

Here’s the Recipe Breakdown:

 

Ingredients

1 Egg
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp of baking powder (I prefer an Aluminum Free option if possible)
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of almond butter (try to stick with unsweetened if possible!)
1 packer of stevia sweetener (my preferred no calorie sweetener)

Directions

  1. Grease a large mug (I usually recommend Coconut Oil)
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute on high

And that’s it!

 

I’m simple, yummy, and has almost no sugar (and a little protein from the egg!)

 

What’s your go to healthy snack?

A Baby Journal You Will Actually Use!

So be honest with me…

 

How many of you were actually good about putting things in your children’s “Baby Books”?

 

My eldest daughter Aidalyn found her baby book when were going through some things in her room, and she guilted me pretty hard on not having much of anything in it! Total #MomWin right there 

 

I love the idea of using a Baby book to remember things that I KNOW I’ll end up forgetting, but a written book just wasn’t cutting it for me.

 

Enter Qeepsake!

 

 I learned about Qeepsake after seeing it on Shark Tank  and I thought “Wow! That’s an awesome idea for saving memories for my girls!”

Anyways, I decided to try it out!

 

Side note: if you are looking for a good physical baby book, I’ve had several people recommend “My Baby Book” from Amy Krouse Rosenthal to me. It’s super cute and has some fun features if you do still want a physical book to write in!

 

So what is Qeepsake?

Qeepsake is a service designed to send you routine text messages (or Facebook messages if you prefer) asking short questions about your children. You simply reply to the messages and your answers are stored in your account!

 

 Here is a sample of the questions it will ask you and save your answers. It’s all pretty seamless and simple!

 

 

Even better, you can make an actual printed book later of the answers and photos you share, or you can just enjoy looking at it online for fun!

 

I know I’m not the only mom who would love an easy way to keep track of all the funny sayings and memories of my kids… but let’s be real right? 

I can actually do this! 

 

 If you want to try it out with me, head here to try it for free!

 

Qeepsake Lite is free but doesn’t have all the available features. If you find you like it, there are plans from $1.99 a month to $7.99 a month that unlock photos, multiple users, and more.  I ended up going ahead and going the premium route because it works so nicely 🙂

If you want to sign-up, please use my referral link. It won’t cost you any extra but I would sure appreciate it! 🙂

 

Pro Tip!  Qeepsake has the ability to connect to your Instagram and Facebook accounts and directly add a post you share to your account to save for later. You just use #qeepsake and it all works perfectly!

What to Look at FIRST Reading Nutrition Labels

Have you ever been at the grocery store and spent hours reading label after label trying to figure out WHAT SHOULD I EAT!?!

It can be confusing, right? 

 

There is so much information out there about what is healthy…

What should we even look at when reading a nutrition label?

 

I’m going to make it SUPER simple for you and give you the very first thing that I look at when reading labels.

This will probably eliminate a lot of foods that aren’t healthy – and save you time reading the rest of the label – haha.

P.S. One really simple idea at the grocery store is to shop the perimeter. There won’t even be nutrition labels on those foods! When I started eating healthier, that was the very first move I made.

3 Tips for Losing Weight While Nursing

#Flashback to when I was a new mama trying to figure this whole new world of mommy hood getting my confidence back, and feeling healthy again!

For many years before, I had tried to eat healthy… live a healthy life – but there were some “mainstream” tips that I had to un-learn.

One thing I had to learn a lot was how to eat the right nutrition for me and my baby!

 

So many people told me that if I was nursing that “The weight would just fall off.” – but when that didn’t happen, I started to really feel defeated and lose hope.

 

Wasn’t I doing everything RIGHT!?!

But maybe we weren’t told the “right” way to eat in the first place?

I figured out how to go from HOPELESS to Hopeful.

I found the key to help me lose weight without drying up my milk supply (and actually helping my milk quality!)

Two Side Effects of Drinking This Coffee…

how does keto coffee help you lose weight

I started drinking my special coffee about two months ago…

I expected the boost in energy, the better focus, the curb in sugar cravings (Click to Grab my Sugar Detox Guide)

 

But there were two side effects I didn’t realize would happen… 

 

One thing I learned was as we age, collagen production declines — you’ll notice it in your looser skin, more wrinkles and less elasticity.

Your hair may even lack that shine or just grow at a slower rate. And sometimes, you’ll just feel “extra stiff” #growingolder read more
