I like to mimic the Cheesecake Factory salad with mixed greens, asparagus, walnuts, goat cheese, beets, and chicken with homemade dressing. Easy and delicious.
Beets are high in vitamins and minerals (potassium, magnesium, fiber, iron, vitamins A,B, C, beta-carotene, folic acid).
Beets purify the blood and beets are a natural liver detoxifier. If you know the function of the liver then you know why this is so good for our bodies. In short, the liver binds up toxins and removes them from our body. If the liver is not functioning properly to be able to do it's job toxins then build up in the body causes disease.
Vitamin B and iron is important for new growth cells, which is another reason why like to eat beets while pregnant.

You can buy it on Amazon or at Whole Foods.
It converts from a sippy to a straw, which makes it a cup that can last a long time to justify paying $15 for one cup.
1-2 cups gluten free oatmeal
1/2 cup sauted kale
The worst part is he hardly even chews it. He just stuffs it in by the fist full - not joking.
I'm a huge advocate for feeding kids real food and I often get questions about how to do this, so I will share some of my top breakfast
foods I love for kids.
Eggs - I always try to get in some type of protein for breakfast and eggs are a good source of fat and protein as well as beneficial for brain development. I look for eggs that are organic, free range and have dark yokes and a hard shell to crack. Some eggs are labeled as healthy, but as soon as I crack it I know it's not all its cracked up to be. Farmer's markets seem to have the best.
Oatmeal - I like the Trader Joe's bag of gluten free oats and I put tons of cinnamon in and some coconut oil
Oatmeal Pancakes - I like these a lot cause they are a lot less mess. In VitaMix - 2 cups water, 2 cups oatmeal, 1-2 bananas, cinnamon, vanilla and blend. I then mix in blueberries or sliced banana and walnuts
Fruit - Bananas, berries, or cantaloup
Kale - I saute it in grass fed butter or coconut oil and mix with the eggs
Fritatta- Saute vegetables (peppers, kale or spinach, broccoli, etc) add in whisked eggs cook on stop top for a few minutes, then put in the oven for about 18 minutes, cut with pizza cutter into slices. Another one I love cause it's way less messy.
Green Smoothie- 1 cup coconut water, 2 handfuls spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 tablespoon Hemp Hearts (I prefer this as a snack, since it doesn't have as much protein but it's a good on the go breakfast to take with us.
Almond Butter Wrap- Ezekiel sprouted tortilla with almond butter folded in half. Also a good one for lunch and sometimes I put fresh berries in the middle for a healthy version of a pb&J.
Kids are often times sensitive to textures, so if they don't eat a hard boiled egg they may eat it scrambled. If they don't like raw veggies they may eat them cooked. Get creative and never give up on feeding your kids real foods.

My new favorite restaurant for sure.
Joanne, Uncle Orville, My mom, My dad, Me & Baby (20 weeks pregnant)
He inspires me cause he eats healthy, exercises consistently, has fun in his life by dancing up to 3x a week, takes short power naps for 10 min daily, gardens, and can pretty much fix anything. It's just so nice and refreshing to see people who are consistent in caring for their health and then seeing the benefits of that.

I like the have these on hand because they last forever in my pantry and when it's time to go to the grocery store or I need a quick snack they are easy.
I recommend them because they are so high in Omega 3's and very high in protein and calcium.
Look for wild caught. The only thing is they stink, but the benefits far outweigh the smell.
I feel them to Jedi and he loves them.

Trying to hold the baby bump, so it looks like I'm pregnant and not that I've just gained 10 pounds!
