I remember feeling like I just didn’t know where I fit as a brand new mom. Everyone who came over would say the same thing…”Isn’t being a mom just the greatest thing you ever did?” And while I agreed with them, I also couldn’t shake the feeling of being an imposter.
I felt like a stranger in my own skin. I’d look in the mirror and see a body that didn’t look like it used to and that I wasn’t sure was ever really going to feel like mine again. And while I loved my new mama role, I also couldn’t help but feel like there had to be something more to life than spit up and holey yoga pants.
While I try to focus a whole lot more on clean eating and nutrition than anything else when it comes to food these days, there are just some connections I can’t help but ignore.
One of my fondest memories from this time of year is coming home to fresh baked pumpkin muffins on a Sunday morning when my dad had been staying with my grandpa after his stroke. We’d gather in the kitchen and enjoy them as a family as a fun way to reconnect and enjoy a little treat after having all gone our separate ways throughout the week.
Y’all! I’ve already told you I’m on the fall train over here! But I may not have told you I’m making it my mission to create as many new, delicious, AND healthy recipes as I can. But I am now!
Fall flavors and foods are part of what I love most about the season, but they aren’t always the most nutritious. I want to change that, so I’ll be sharing some of my favorite clean eating recipes with all of the yummy fall flavors. This breakfast recipe is a perfect way to start off the season!
I don’t know what it is but as soon as everyone starts heading back to school, I feel like it’s automatically fall. And you know what that means…It’s time for all things pumpkin – at least in my world! One of my favorite parts of fall is getting to enjoy all the delicious flavors! Traditionally fall flavors are a little decadent, so I love finding healthier ways that I can still enjoy them like these #PSL Overnight Oats!
I’ve always loved baking sweets and treats for the ones I love. (Seriously, ask my hubby. I used to mail him boxes of cookies when we were dating and living 6 hours apart.)
Today not much has changed. I still love sharing baked goods with my sweet little family. But instead of the regular variety, I tweak my recipes to make them a little more nutritious (without sacrificing on flavor)!
