This is one of the salads I used to eat on repeat back in my LA days and I figured it was time to remake it at home. If you’ve ever had the iconic La Scala chopped salad, then you already know how amazing it is, but if you’ve never tried it, you’re in for a real treat with my copycat version and I promise it’s about to become your favorite salad!
I almost skipped out on posting this recipe on the blog because it felt like it might be too simple, but honestly, those recipes are always the best! Who doesn't love a meal that comes together in a matter of minutes with just a few ingredients!? I lived on breakfast quesadillas while I was pregnant and they're still something I crave all the time. You can easily customize them by adding your favorite veggies inside, changing up your tortillas (I always use Siete almond flour tortillas), and using whatever cheese you prefer. However you whip it up, you can't go wrong!
Passover is just a couple days away, which means it's the start of seven full days without any leavened bread products. That means no bread, no traditional baked goods, no pasta, no crackers, no cereal... you get the idea. This is symbolic of when the Jews escaped Egypt and didn't have time to let the bread rise before racing out of there... hence why we skip leavened bread and why matzah is everyone's go-to over Passover! But honestly, matzah just isn't my thing... especially when there are so many more delicious things that we can eat during Passover! With all of the incredible paleo desserts out there that are already grain-free, it's pretty easy to find Passover-friendly recipes. Here are 5 of my all-time favorites to keep your sweet tooth satisfied during Passover (and honestly, all year round!).
I started writing this post before I went to the hospital and had baby Max. Now that I'm back home with him, I feel like it's an even better post because I can share with you everything that I packed, and also what I actually used. So let me first say... you really really don't need to pack all that much. The hospital pretty much has everything you (and baby) will need, but there are a few things to pack that will definitely make your hospital stay more comfortable! This list is a combination of things I brought and used and of course suggestions from friends of amazing things I wouldn't have thought to bring with us. I also recorded a whole video on instagram showing all of the items I packed - you can watch it here! Ok let's get into the details... here's everything I packed, and you'll see a * next to everything I actually ended up using!
We're officially one week out from my due date with baby boy, so I figured it was time to share my top 10 pregnancy essentials from this time around. My two pregnancies were actually pretty similar — luckily I felt pretty good both pregnancies aside from the exhaustion that just comes with being pregnant, although it was on another level this time (especially first trimester) since I was chasing around a toddler every day. What was definitely different was being pregnant during non-Covid days with Noah vs. now with baby number two. Last time I actually made an effort to get dressed in real clothes because we were more social and had way more events and date nights, and this time, we spent a lot of time at home, so I pretty much just lived in loungewear and cozies. So you'll see that most of my essentials were really all about staying comfortable! Hopefully this list is helpful for all of you mamas-to-be who are lounging at home, too!
