I’m what you might call a newby to being a stay at home mom. I was laid off of my business job a few months ago and decided that maybe finding another job was not the right next move for me. So here I am, feeling my way through being a stay at home mom while trying to maintain my sanity.
I’ve been taking Claritin or Zyrtec for what seems like my whole life, but neither bring instant relief. Those medications feel more like a long-term “maintenance-like” relief. If I suddenly have a sinus headache, neither of those are helpful for any type of immediate relief. So, for instant relief, I drink my Sinus Relief Tea.
About a week ago, my parents came over to visit us and the best part of their visits is that they usually bring food with them. Don’t you just love visitors like that?! Why yes, you may come over anytime! So last week, they brought over Spaghetti Squash.
I’m always looking for ways to save money or do things a little cheaper without sacrificing quality. So, I just had to share how I fed my family of four lunch today for $6.50!
I cook mostly vegan food in my home but my husbands only request is that I cook him fish at least once per week. So, I thought that was pretty fair. Tonight was the fish night. I fried up some catfish fillets along with a side of potatoes and broccoli. I knew my toddler wouldn’t eat any fish, which I was completely fine with because we are probably the two strictest vegans in the house.
Earlier this month, I was over my grandmother’s (in-law) house for a family dinner. It was almost all of my in-laws that live in Georgia and my parents. I love how both my husband’s family and my family get together quit often.
I fell in love with Buddha Bowls (aka vegetable bowls)about a year ago when I went Vegan. I love them because you can free style your bowl. And it doesn’t even have to be in a bowl!
I have not-so-fond memories of Ramen Noodles. When I was a broke college student stuck in a dorm without a car, Ramen Noodles were to the rescue!
Ever since my husband has been working this crazy demanding shift at work, I’ve been making juicing him an energy drink when he wakes up. He works for 8 days straight, so about day 5, he’s in need of that pick me up drink and he will tell you that this is his go-to pick me up.
I think the hardest part about being vegan is not having a lot of dessert options. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I am by no means a hard-core vegan. I have a serious weakness for cookies, cake, pie, just about anything sweet!
