Spinach Spinner

Hi friends!! So I totally wrote a post yesterday.. and my pictures were taking FOREVER.. so long, that I went to bed and woke up to the post completely gone.. :(  I'm not going to re-type it all but here is a quick re-cap..
IT WAS... national peanut butter lovers day.. I celebrated with my favorite PB
I could just eat this with a spoon.. oh wait... I do that. ;)

T had his fitting for his helmet.. If you a new reader, my little boy was diagnosed with plagiocephaly, which is really common with twins. The back of his head has a flat spot and the helmet will help shape his head. At first...


Then after a few minutes he was just fine. Now that we are home he doesn't even notice it. So all is well. Hopefully these 8 weeks go by fast!
happy helmet boy!


 And today it doesn't even seem to bother him at all anymore. I think its just harder for mom then it is for him. He will have to wear it for 8 weeks &  for 23 hrs a day, I take it off a few times to just clean it because he gets a little sweaty underneath. Thank goodness its still a little cold. Summer is going to be rough! But he still is the most adorable little boy ever!!
The end.

Guess whats back??
get in mah belly..
plump, juicy, sweet perfection


RASPBERRIES!! Driscoll's Raspberrys are simply suberb I LOVE them. They are sold in this large packet at costco, and they haven't had them at my location for awhile until now!! When I was pregnant I probably went through a whole container in 2 days.. !!!  How I have missed them!
Raspberries are amazingly beneficial to any diet. Not only do they contain antioxidants, fiber & vitamins, they contain ellagic acid that helps prevent cancer and help burn fat. They contain fiber and manganese. (Manganese is a mineral that assist with keeping your metabolic rate high, in turn burning fat.)
I went a little wild this morning with my oats..
Raspberries, Blueberries, gourmet vanilla protein powder, cinnamon and almonds. 

mix it up

Even Lunch today, there was a little Raspberry love..

Chicken Spinach Salad- inspired from my shrimp salad the other day, I even drizzled my leftover dressing over the top! 

3 Cups of Spinach
1 Cup of Green Beans
8 oz Chicken
1/4 cucumber
1/2 red pepper,
1/2 a 1/2 of avocado
+ a whole lotta raspberries..
..Great Spinach Spinner..

So good!!
Hope you are having a fabulous week so far!! Happy Hump day!!
Ps..
Snot bubble anyone??

  7. I just found your blog and your baby is adorable! My baby had the flat head thing too, but we didn't have to get a helmet. Maybe we should have because she still has a small flat spot... Oh well, she's a girl and can cover it with a ponytail :)

  8. I had DCD Peanut Butter slathered on an English Muffin yesterday to celebrate. Mmmm...newest addiction!

    I love raspberries. There has to be a way to get the raspberries to marry the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter...
