Preparing Homemade Baby food: mommy and baby

As promised, the follow up post to #MOMMING101: INTRODUCING SOLIDS. And today’s all about preparing homemade baby food. Baking, roasting, boiling… There are loads of cooking methods yet steaming has stayed the number one choice when it comes to preparing baby food, locking in most nutrients. This being said, some foods are definitely more flavourful when baked so don’t forget to give alternative cooking methods a go as well. Consuming raw foods are also a healthy option as long as the…

pHformula Skin resurfacing

We all know mom life is hard but it can also be hard on your skin. An unexpected keepsake from pregnancy has been pigmentation. Every time I fall pregnant we don’t just grow our family but I also get an added pigmentation spot. Always on the left side of my face, around my eyes and upper cheek. The pigmentation gets darker and the spots bigger and more. They tend to lighten up after breastfeeding but never disappear. We are suppose…
