Things I'm Loving This Thursday

Thursday, February 10, 2011

this week, I'm loving...
  • beauty treatment while you sleepBeauty fixes on the go. Every mother laments about how her beauty regimen goes out the back door once kids arrive. I never had a high-maintenance routine, but I enjoyed my facials, mani/pedis and occasional massage. Instead of complaining, I am discovering ways to sneak in at-home care on the fly. When I am boiling an egg for Marlie, I give myself a quick steam facial. After I wash dishes, I rub a drop of olive oil into my hands to keep them moisturized. Genius, I know! (photo credit: Mark-s-)
  • Silk Coconut Milk! Five years ago when I was at my wits end trying to deal with a host of mystery symptoms, I signed up at a holistic health center. The nutritionist on staff opened my eyes to the over-processing our food supply and how what we put in our gut affects our health. She turned me off most dairy products, especially cow's milk. I haven't drank a drop since. I was worried about what to give Marlie when she turned 1 since all pediatricians insist cow's milk is needed for calcium, Vitamin D and fat. Thankfully, So Delicious came out with a coconut milk right on time. Coconut Milk has 5 g of fat for brain development, but only 10% of the daily recommended intake of calcium. I had to supplement her calcium. Now Silk has come out with their own version of coconut milk that contains 45% calcium, which is more than dairy milk! Yay!
  • The return of GLEE. I was a bit disappointed with the post-Super Bowl episode. I expected more pizazz. It was just okay. I still love GLEE though and cannot wait for new duets, mash ups and musical chair couplings! (photo credit: Wikimedia Commons)

I guess we're lucky - I think cow's milk is super gross and we never have it in the house. Our pedi said that soy milk or basically anything fortified is okay, as long as it has sufficient calories and fat.

Of course, lately the Babby refuses anything but juice. She will not drink any milk :(

Just this past year I have started getting absolutely grossed out by the thought of drinking cows milk. I mean come on, you don't see pigs weaning ducks do you?! Blech...so thank you for the info on the Silk Milks! I am finally going to participate in this meme this week because I have found something that I am absolutely loving.

My best, Lynn

I was a little disappointed with the Super Bowl episode too. Tuesday's epi made up for it though! I loved the song selections.

I like the taste of milk and milk products but I am skeeved out by the idea of giving a baby a bottle of cow's milk - Really great to know there's another option when Sebastian reaches that age!

Oh lord do I ever miss my mani/pedis.
