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…

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…

Remedies and Preventatives for Stretch Marks

Knock on wood, I haven’t gotten any new stretch marks during my first or second trimester (other than the ones that already existed on my thighs and hips). Granted, I still have a few months left, so anything is possible regardless of my current skin regimen.

Why I Gave Up Coffee

Can you imagine giving up coffee? For more than a week? How about forever? Not most would be able to answer yes. Just as the slogan says, “America runs on Dunkin” aka we need caffeine to survive. And it’s true. The smell, the taste, the jolt you get from the mornings first sip all stem…

A New Type of Birthday – Palooza

Growing up in the middle of siblings made celebrating personal milestones hard because of the lack of recognition. So when I was finally old enough to drive, I gas’d up my car and decided to make a celebration of my own, Birthday-palooza. Instead of celebrating my birthday for one night, why not celebrate it for…

The Benefits of Raw Honey

When I was younger, you would never find a bottle of honey anywhere in our household. Besides the fact that the word “healthy” never crossed my parents mind, honey to them was extra and totally unnecessary. I mean, why would we have honey when you can just put butter on top of whatever you were…

Healthy Quickie: Kombucha

Hell yeah we’re on Healthy Quickie series #2. This month’s topic is kombucha. I’m sure by now you at least know what kombucha is…otherwise bravo to you for reading a post where you didn’t know what you were about to read. I started my kombucha journey about two years ago when I first began repairing…

Why I’m a Rebbl and no Longer “Trying” for our Rainbow Baby

One of the most commonly asked questions I’ve gotten since my miscarriage is “when you going to start trying again?” Let me tell you how enraging that question is. I mean SHIT, it took my body 3 months after miscarrying to lose the HcGs, it took my mind / confidence even longer to heal (up…

There’s No Place like Rome

Ugh what I would do to live in Italy. Although I’ve only visited twice, I’ve spent a good chunk of time there both times I’ve visited. As you can imagine, my favorite part of Italy is obviously the food. Don’t get me wrong, the sites are beautiful and the air is fresh AF, but the food is…

6 Super Products To Help Boost Fertility

My body has had six months since my surgery to grieve and rid itself of those horrific HcGs. During that time, I read a lot of books, reached out to a lot of different people, traveled a lot, and have practiced healing myself. Whether it’s continuing my regimens of super clean foods, getting my weekly…
