Easy Easter Treat

Do you greet holidays head on, without abandon and dedicate weeks or months to creating the perfect crafts?

Well, I don’t. I have big dreams (thanks, Pinterest) and most often, I do nothing. Well, not nothing. I will play a song or add a dollar store wreath to the door.

That’s why I am so proud of myself. I have actually done two, yep, I said TWO, children’s Easter-related activities.

First, last week (way before Easter), we actually dyed eggs. I’ve wanted to do this forever, and even with my thirteen-year-old child, I think I’ve only managed to do it once. (I know, bad mom.)

Step Into Spring: Essential “To Do’s” for Your Family

In the start of the spring season, our bodies are transitioning from the cold weather to a warmer climate. The reason behind this is that the air pressure is changing and our body system had now adjusted to the harsh cold that was recently upon us. Many people experience flu and coughs as the readings drop on the barometer. On the other hand, when the temperature rises, weather-sensitive people experience migraines, joint aches and back aches.

Saving yourself from getting sick can be a troublesome task and an even more concerning thing is when you have a family to look for. Changing weather, especially the shifting from cold temperatures to warmer seasons can leave a lot of people vulnerable. With the increasing warmth and high humidity levels, it becomes easier for bacteria to travel through the air, increasing your chances of contracting airborne illnesses. The kids go to school and interact with other children, where they may get a viral disease or you can get any bacterial infection in an office or a store. There are multiple precautions that you can take to make your spring better, happier and healthier.

Calling all STEM Lovers and Girl Empowerment Supporters (GLI/STEM Academy)

I love to volunteer. Thankfully, over the last five years, I’ve had the ability to do a lot of it. One of my passions is educating girls in STEAM fields: science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Even though I don’t actually work in any of those fields, I feel like I had given up on it early. My grades stayed at As and Bs throughout high school and in college (except one class) in those fields. I didn’t consider it a possibility because I didn’t know anyone else going into it. I wanted friendship and comradery and I just didn’t see it in those fields.

Get More Protein with Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides #spon

I have received compensation in exchange for my honest review.

Now that I’m more conscientious with my eating, I realized that I wasn’t nearly getting enough protein. For my current weight, I should be getting around 150 grams of protein!

Even the best protein shakes average 20-30 grams. Drinking two a day is less than half of my required intake.

That leaves me with an interesting dilemma, with two unfavorable options:

  • Drink more than two shakes a day, possibly up to four, or
  • Eat 20 grams of protein each of my other 4 meals a day

Which one would you choose?

I opt for neither. So, how do I attain this crazy goal without eating large slabs of meat or fish?
