Vitamin D + A Recipe (say it out loud. It rhymes)

January 24, 2017

Wuuuuuuuduuuuuuuuuup Party People?

How are things?

We haven’t really seen the sun shine in a week, and it’s starting to get old. I NEED VITAMIN D! Baby C would like a tan…and so would Mommy. Personally, I’d take lower temperatures WITH sun, than higher without.

I might start to have SAD – seasonal affective disorder…Thank gawwwwd we’re blowing this joint at the end of February for 17 motherfuckin’ days. Oh yeah. To California and then Hawaii!



I’m 22.5 weeks with child today, and I have to say…he’s a fat little bugger-tipping the scale at over 1 pound. Thata boy! Here is the outward result of my growing human = growing Mama.

I’ve gained 10 pounds total and it doesn’t bother me one bit. I feel really good, and that’s most important. HB has also been great about showering me with compliments. He’s the best. He also understands that I can no longer participate in things I don’t like certain chores around the house, because I’m busy growing a foot and stuff.


This is actually his little, pumpkin foot…only ultrasound picture you will get, so relish in it.  How cute are his little toesies!? …They’re very advanced feet. Like the most advanced feet ever.

I actually just stole that joke (about being too busy to do shit because I’m growing a foot) from Ali Wong. Funniest shit ever (Netflix). Bitch had me in stitches…as the Brits would say.


Let’s see, what else? How about I share my favorite breakfast. I literally eat this EVERY. SINGLE. MORNING. It hits the spot because it’s filled with protein, low in sugar, high in fiber and high in Omega-3 fatty acids, among many things. I call it…



1 small (or 1/2 large) ripe banana

1/2 cup egg whites

1/4 cup almond milk (unsweetened)

1 heaping T of ground flaxseeds

dash of cinnamon

dash of himalayan sea salt

*Blend all of the above. Pour into frying pan on medium-low heat. Scramble mixture like you would eggs, until light and fluffy in texture.


2 T Organic peanut butter

2 T raw cacao nibs

1/2 T chia seeds

Sliced fruit: banana + berries

Tiny bit of high quality, lightly sweetened dark chocolate. I love Primal Chocolate.

Seriously, the BOMB. Obviously you can get creative with your toppings, but these happen to be my favorite.



We’ll finish with this namaste pregnant yoga person (who is my lock screen photo now).

    Oh my gawd! That was so good! I made it this morning following your directions (except I accidentally forgot to put in the almond milk! I got it out, then just forgot! Still delicious!) Wow! I’m definitely having that again tomorrow. Hands down the best recipe I’ve read in a LONG time. And so easy! And delish!!

    YES!! The Ali Wong special on Netflix is HILARIOUS…I liked the part about her mom and the graphing calculator…

    You are looking great! Congrats on growing the baby foot!
