Top Recommendations For Seasoning
This pink salt is literally added to all of my foods! I add it mostly to my chickens, eggs, and salads! Himalayan Pink Salt has some great benefits:
•Balances body Ph levels
•Improving bone strength
•Prevents low blood pressure
Here is a link that provides more information on pink salt!
I use this garlic herb on my soups (caldos), egg whites, or sandwiches! You can get this at any grocery store. I get mine at Winco!
I use this one mainly on ground turkey and my veggies! I will also add a small amount (teaspoon) when making soup (Caldo).
This is my newest addition! I absolutely love this seasoning!! I use this everyday when making egg whites, sausage, and veggies! I also use this when making chicken in the oven! 😋 I like to add more than usual since there is no salt. ;)
My Postpartum Journey
Normally, I don’t go about writing posts like these, but there are many women out there who are going through this and cannot express how they’re feeling. I can’t talk for many women, but for myself it’s been a ruff couple of months. These few past months have been a roller coaster of happiness, love, sadness, frustration, tiredness, confusion, and “I don’t know why I’m crying.”
I still remember the day we were discharged and how nervous/scared I was bringing my little one home. Becoming a mom was one of the best things that has happened to me yet one of the hardest.
Postpartum depression/anxiety is one of the ugliest experience I’ve had to go through. I felt different. I never really thought this would be me talking about PPD. In the beginning, it was so hard to speak up and just talk about it. It took me so long to stop being on denial and I always questioned myself, if I was a great mom, girlfriend, sister, or friend.
If you’re feeling down after having a baby, talk to someone, take some time for yourself. Getting the help that I needed has got me to where I am today, I feel happy, grateful, and blessed! For the days that I feel down or I’m just having an off day, I listen to my podcast, mediate, and take a deep breath and tell myself that I’m doing great!
