Christmas is right around the corner and I can hardly believe it. This is our first Christmas together as a family of four. Macy was born right after Christmas on January 3rd. I remember being so anxious last Christmas, waiting for her arrival. I can hardly believe she is going to be 1!!!! This has been a crazy, busy, and full year for us. I am looking forward to spending this year with my husbands entire family and my entire family for the first time EVER! Everyone finally lives near us and we get to spend the holidays together as a big family. I am so blessed!
I have been trying to learn how to eat healthier and fill my mind with traditional nourishing recipes and I love this blog that I follow www.nourishedkitchen.com. I have gained weight while growing and nursing my babies and now its about time that I start paying attention to what I am eating and I start getting more active! I know with the holidays here it seems like the worst time to try and eat better, especially with all the goodies that are being shared, but I think it is a great time to be aware of what I am eating and letting my kids eat.
The Nourished Kitchen blog has some really interesting detailed and nourishing recipes. I wanted to share a few with you that I am using this year. These are good options for yummy treats that still have great ingredients and are not packed with sugar! ENJOY!
