About Me

I am a cloth diapering, breastfeeding, cosleeping, baby led weaning, extended rear facing, eco conscious, married mommy to two beautiful children. They have changed my view on the world we live in. It is now my number 1 goal to make it the best I can for them to grow up in. I find myself always rethinking how I want to live my life and often feel like sharing my findings and thoughts with others. So I guess here's my chance :o) I will talk about topics that interest me. If you dont like them or dont agree, well... there's nothing much I can do!

Trying something new - Preparing fruit ahead of time

As a breastfeeding mom, I already know that nutrition plays an important role in maintaining a healthy milk supply. Since one of my 2014 goals is to complete a half marathon this upcoming May, a healthy diet will become even more important. I will be trying something new in order to help my family eat healthy snacks easily and more frequently.

Food waste has occasionally been a problem for us. We buy tons of fresh organic produce and since it takes some time to prepare something, we often go for something quicker like crackers. Now that Zachary is a year old and Keegan is getting ready to go on another 2 month deployment, figuring out a system that allows us to have fresh produce readily available whenever we want it will be super useful.

So here is all our fruit for the week. It isn't all organic (thanks to Jen and Joey Go Green's fb post) so washing it well will be very important. I am trying a hot water and vinegar rinse on the strawberries, blueberries and grapes.

And here it is, all cut up and ready to eat whenever we want over the next couple days. The freshly cut up fruit will most likely be the first to go and the apples and oranges will be saved for later on in the week.

Do you do anything special with your produce to help it last longer?
