Happy new year! I hope you enjoyed the holidays and that you’re off to a healthy 2017. We stayed home over the boys’ winter break, just relaxing, playing, and Ben and I even got to sleep in a few times!
Although the holidays often go hand in hand with overindulgence, I thought I had been pretty good about not veering too far off of my usual eating plan. Then last week I realized that I was always craving carbs, and my belly just looked and felt way bigger than it should. Why? Because I had been eating more starches and sugar than usual, which make me so bloated that sometimes I look 5 months pregnant by the end of the day. This is not normal!
Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing end to 2014. We enjoyed a fabulous staycation here with my sister who came to visit us from Seattle, and we’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of normal life. This last week I spent a good chunk of time making some changes to my website that I hope will make for easier navigation, and a more streamlined experience. It’s still a work in progress, so if you have any requests or comments, I would love to hear from you. As always, I have been experimenting with creating recipes in the kitchen, and here is one of my new favorites: The Easiest Pulled Pork Ever.
