French toast is an easy way to help boost your little one’s protein and whole grain intake. Instead of the traditional recipe, substitute white or French bread for 100% whole grain bread. You can also sprinkle fresh fruit such as sliced bananas or fresh berries on top for an added health boost.
2 slices 100% whole grain bread
1 large egg
½ tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 cup milk
In a large bowl, whisk egg and add in milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir to blend evenly. Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture until evenly coated on both sides. Place bread in a skillet or pan over medium heat. Allow bread to toast and egg to cook through, then flip and cook evenly on the other side. Serve warm with fresh fruit, whipped cream, or a dash of agave or honey.
After your next stroll around the block, finish up by boosting your leg muscles to help jump start your metabolism. Use these baby wearing squats before or after the completion of your stroller walk to tone and slim legs while building strength.
While wearing your baby in a baby carrier facing either inwards towards your chest or outwards, but centered on your body, stand with your legs shoulder width apart and toes facing forward. Slowly bend your knees to lower your body like you are sitting in a chair. Make sure to keep your chest upright and do not allow your knees to pass over your toe line. Slowly rise back up by straightening your knees to the starting position, then repeat.
If you’re aiming to tone and tighten your abs post-baby, this exercise is perfect for you. It’s a great way to target those stubborn lower abs while having fun doing it! This exercise is best to perform with an older baby who can sit up on his own. If your baby is still too young to self-support, use a dumbbell instead.
Start by sitting in a straddle position on the floor with your baby in front of you, at an arms length distance, facing toward you. Seat your baby on cardboard or a material that slides easily on your floor’s surface.
Have you always wanted to work one-on-one with a dietitian but haven’t had the time to schedule an appointment? Or maybe cost was a factor holding you back from regular visits. I have found this to be true with many of my clients and potential clients. They would love to have more regular visits (since more face to face time often equals greater success), but busy schedules, lack of insurance coverage, cost, etc all made that a challenge. So, I decided to take the information I share with my private clients one-on-one and make it into an interactive online course accessible no matter where you are.
My first course, “30 Days to a Healthier Heart & Lower Blood Pressure,” will show you exactly what you need to do, day in and day out, to lose weight, shrink belly fat, lower stress, and bring down cholesterol and blood pressure in just 30 short days. You will have lifetime access to over 22 video lectures, quizzes, interactive discussion boards, and special events for enrolled students only. You also have a 30 day money back guarantee in case you don’t love the class as much as you think you will (but I really think you will love it!).
To celebrate my 1st e-learning course, I am offering it at 50% off now until midnight on April 30th 2015.
