If you have never had buffalo cauliflower wings before, girl, you are in for a treat! Plus this is a great recipe to whip up for non-vegans- guys seem to especially love it! My husband says it’s his favourite “vegan-y meal” I make. haha

If buffalo sauce isn’t your thing, you can keep them plain (that’s what I do for my kids) or do BBQ sauce! Well, really, you can use any sauce you like.

Let/s talk about how to care for yourself as a mom. Being a mom means spending the majority of your time taking care of other people. It’s both fulfilling and exhausting.  We give a LOT of ourselves, every single day.  That’s why self care is so important.  That’s why we MUST do things for OURSELVES as well.  I’m not talking about a once a year massage or the odd pedicure either.  We have to do things for ourselves every day!

Okay, some of you are probably really freaked out that I just put “dessert” and “hummus” in the same sentence but stay with me! I swear this stuff is SO DELICIOUS.  I cannot get enough of it and neither can my toddlers!  If you love chocolate, you will love this dip- it tastes nothing like chickpeas.

Not only is this hummus super tasty but it’s also full of nutrients.  Yes,

I think with wellness being almost “trendy” these days, there’s a lot of focus on things like superfoods and crystals and such to the point where for someone who is just trying to be a little healthier it can feel overwhelming.  With my clients, I like to meet them where they are and build up from there.  Start small because small is do-able, small isn’t overwhelming. If you keep trying to take gigantic leaps, you’re eventually going to wear yourself out!

I feel like I’ve been building up to this shopping ban for a while. I attempted a 30 day “no buy” back in April but didn’t quite make it. I’ve just had this nagging feeling that I need to SHOP LESS. It has been showing up in different ways in my life lately- lots of signs!  I have multiple reasons for wanting to do it, which I’ll share below, but ultimately it’s about control.

Guys, I have a total weakness for baked goods. Mmm. It’s partially a “comfort” thing because I grew up baking with my mom and sisters. It makes me happy!  My 3 year old already bakes with me all the time. We try to balance making healthier dishes with treats like this though.  He’s not even a big cinnamon roll eater- he just wants the icing and sugar haha

I know I just posted a recipe here the other day but I had to get this recipe up in time for Mother’s Day because there is no treat I’d want more than this one!

I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to packing for trips. I don’t know why… I’m not usually a very organized person but there’s something about traveling that brings it out in me, I guess!  I’ll pack a week early, plan out outfits, buy travel sized items etc  So when my husband and I decided we were going to drive to North Carolina (from WA State), I started planning it out right away!

I asked you guys if you wanted me to share this recipe on  my blog despite it not being the most “nutritious” and you said YES so here you go!

These are not a nutritionally dense muffin so if that’s what you’re looking for, keep looking. haha These are definitely more an indulgent, impress your friends muffin that no one will be able to resist!

Placenta

Okay, I know, some people are totally grossed out by the thought of keeping and consuming your placenta…  but I really do feel like it helps with recovery! With my first baby I had it encapsulated but with my second I consumed it raw in a smoothie where I couldn’t taste it at all! In fact, I found the encapsulated pills had a stronger taste.  I definitely “bounced back” energy-wise a lot faster after my second baby;
