Mommy Minute

For those moments in life when you just need a minute to yourself…

A container of lids and a couple containers do just the trick!

Mommy Minute

Ramblings of my mommy mind, one minute at a time.

-It’s March! Spring is coming, hooray!

-I’ve recently started drinking and making my own kombucha tea. Ever heard of it? It’s tasty, easy to make and full of like a zillion probiotics and other healthy stuff.

Dr. Bronner’s castile soap rocks. Made mainly of oils, it’s super gentle, and it’s organic and fair trade. You can scrub your baby and your house from top to bottom without any harsh petroleum based and toxic chemicals. I’ve seen it at Target, Walgreens and on Amazon.

-Hands down best green smoothie base ever: 1 banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1 cup almond milk and 4 cups spinach. Blend together as is or add any combination of fruit for a FILLING, nutritious breakfast. Really, it’s good! I added a lemon and some blueberries and it was awesome. Toddler friendly, too! Thank you Iowa Girl Eats!

-1st Corinthians 9 has been on my heart lately. I want to serve like Paul! My husband, my son, everyone I encounter. It encourages me to look for ways I can serve others and not focus on what people can do for me.

-Trader Joes has really good organic carrots. Taste great and cost 88 cents a pound.

-My mother in law lent me her sprouter and I’ve been enjoying growing my own sprouts. They are easy to grow (and fun for kids, too) and make a nice addition to salads and sandwiches. Here’s my first batch of sprouts:


Have a good weekend, everyone!
