Finding Time to B3 Me

Even before Liam was born (10m ago-omg!), I’ve barely had a minute to myself. For the last couple of years, I’ve been a wife, dog-mom, fitness enthusiast, and friend. However, adding “Mom” to my resume, made the juggling act even harder. I know people say having a kid changes everything, but until you experience it…

Gluten-Free Paleo Biscuits and Gravy

I’m approaching the end of my nursing career (for right now at least), and being hungry all of the time because of the extra caloric requirement is NO JOKE.  I haven’t dropped a feeding until now. My body has been a machine since the day this kid was born. I have to drink a certain…

Why Probiotics Are Important

If you had asked me five years ago what probiotics were, I would have had ZERO idea. The truth is, I didn’t start to really turn my health around until 2016 when I got my first food sensitivity results and shortly afterward, had a miscarriage. I thought eating healthy and lean foods would be okay…

Gluten-Free and Egg-Free Paleo Sunbutter Cookies

Now that I’m 1.5 months into going back on AIP/elimination for Liam, his skin is 99% improved and his stomach issues are slowly getting better. For all of the doctors we’ve seen and told us to switch to formula or to accept his issues as normal, eff you. Changing your diet and lifestyle has a…

Paleo / AIP Restaurants Around Denver

Before my pregnancy, I followed a Paleo / AIP lifestyle to offset my 40 + foods I’m sensitive to. However, when I was pregnant, the frequent heartburn I had, sensitive stomach I dealt with all magically went away for those 10 months. Eating and going out for dinner was exciting again. Mostly because I could…

Occupation: Dad

Hello everyone, this is Aimee’s other half, Ryan.  A few months ago before our little one came into our lives, we discussed the possible options for child care.  Being that we live far away from our families, it was out of the question for them to help us care for him while we were at…

Breastfeeding Essentials

To Be Honest, I’ve never been excited of the idea breastfeeding. I know many women are all gung ho about it and are all like “free the nip,” but I always thought the concept was super weird. I get it, our boobs were made to feed children, but that doesn’t mean I have to feel…

Creamy Green Paleo Smoothie

To say that the days fly by with an infant, a child no less, is a complete understatement. Everyday I wake up at 5am, I blink and it’s 6pm. My day starts and ends with feeding, burping, pumping, changing diapers, take the dogs out, calming down baby, repeat. Notice, no real significant breaks. Having a…

New Mom Essentials and Things NOT to Buy

Although I got that fresh mommy status as of a week ago, the hubs and I realized that we bought a lot of extra stuff that we don’t need/don’t find useful. On the flip side, we found things that were super helpful and practical. We obviously can’t return our opened items, but if I can…

How To Get Rid of Dry Bumps

Don’t lie, we all have dry bumps on our skin from either weather, diet, or genetics. They’re definitely not sexy and more of a pain in then ass than anything. But it seems like no matter how much you lotion, those damn bumps remain.
