So far this week we’ve covered DIY toy organization, a hands-on family project for teaching kids to give back, and a must-try playtime activity for open-ended creativity and going green in 2014.
So what will we be addressing today in our January journey to eat better, parent better, organize better and just generally live better this year?… How about we continue working on a healthy family diet?
I’m over at eHow’s mom channel discussing my new favorite way for easily sneaking protein into our eating routine. Here’s a quick peek:
Never have I felt the importance of a protein-rich diet more than I do now, working from home and operating as the primary caregiver for a 3- and 5-year old while being nearly 30 weeks pregnant with baby #3. Along with raising energy levels, research shows that a protein-rich breakfast, like eggs, also improves appetite control and leads to increased feelings of fullness, helping you to stick to your health, diet and fitness goals…
You know who else loves eggs? Older babies (at least 12 months and older) and young toddlers. My mom friends and I have found that there’s something incredibly enticing about a whole, freshly peeled egg to this age group. Read More Here.
