Welcome to Day 5 of my One Whole Year Event! (Remember, to enter you must visit the original One Whole Year giveaway post, and complete the mandatory entry first. ALL extra entries must also appear on THAT post!)

So far, I’ve announced 5 prizes in the package:

  • One Kawaii Minky Bamboo one size cloth diaper in the new olive green color

  • A prize bundle from HappyBaby, including the book, HappyBaby: The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 Months!

I’m on a roll….let’s keep going! :D

Today’s featured sponsor is Milkin’ Cookies!

Milkin’ Cookies are lactation cookies for nursing moms, designed to help increase milk supply. They were developed by two mommies (who also happen to be physicians) on a quest to create a product that would help on-the-go mommies like themselves keep their milk supply up. Knowing that some foods were known to increase milk production, they developed the recipe for these yummy cookies!

Milkin’ Cookies are made with wholesome ingredients including whole wheat flour, flaxseed, wheat germ, and oats. Each cookie has just 190 calories and has a whopping 3 grams of fiber! They’re all natural, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and they include no medicines.

Milkin’ Cookies are delicious and bursting with wholesome flavor. They’re individually packaged so you can toss them in your diaper bag or briefcase when you’re on the run. They’re a tasty way to treat yourself during a busy day.” ~Milkin’ Cookies

For the sake of disclosure, I have to tell you that I have not tried Milkin’ Cookies myself. They are, however, a Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA) award winner, and they have quite a following of devoted lactating mommies! Read testimonials here.

These mamas sound like pretty smart cookies to me, dontcha think? ;)

Interested in giving Milkin’ Cookies a try? Well, they’ve been kind enough to offer my lucky One Whole Year winner a 2-week supply of cookies! Yay! :)

Burger and Fries!

I have some catching up to do!

What gets my vote for best 3pm snack this week? 

These guys, who made a surprise appearance at my desk during the afternoon slump! They arrived courtesy of my friend who happens to be a registered dietitian, so I ate one happily, no questions asked, and packed up the other for the Hus.

CHOMP!

Did you ever just get bored with your ol’ standby breakfast, only to eat it and realize why it became your breakfast of choice in the first place?

Yesterday, my cup runneth over with So Delicious coconut milk (beverage) and Granbiotics granola, topped with cranberries and one date, for good measure…

…along with more Mother’s Milk tea. I think this stuff is really working! I thought all that galactagogue talk might be a bunch of hooey, but my supply is increasing nicely. I still don’t like the anise flavor, but it’s not bothering me that much anymore. Besides, I never really liked handling poop or having bags under my eyes from sleep deprivation before either, but I deal. It’s all part of parenting, right?

Breakfast was fun. Little F is getting so curious about Mommy’s food, and he intently watches as I raise and lower my spoon for each bite, not aware that he’s imitating my motions with his mouth. It’s super cute, and I love that he’s watching me eat something healthy (most of the time… ;)

I just love being a mommy. Especially his mommy.

Daddy wanted burgers and fries, so I decided to oblige him, ABCGP-style!

I had a bunch of beautiful parsnips, courtesy of my favorite grocery store Produce Man (my Dad!) so I cut them up and made some parsnip fries! A drizzle of olive oil on one side, macadamia nut oil on the other, salt and pepper.

I also sprinkled a few with some chipotle powder a friend made for us out of our garden jalapenos…

400º for about 25 minutes…

A few were a little thin, but the core was really fat and I didn’t have much choice. Maybe smaller parsnips are better?

His burger: moo-cow. Mine: Sunshine!

Fresh salsa, crumbled feta, and basil from the garden, with a swipe of avo-hummus underneath.

Bruschetta Sunshine Burger, maybe? Either way, deeee-lish.

It was time to thin out the beet patch, so I found myself with these beautiful babies…

Not sure what I’ll do with them yet, but this new addition to the family sure is giving me some ideas…

I can’t think of a better present right now! Many thanks to Grammie Garden Pea!

Do you eat the same thing for breakfast every day? Do you get bored? (I find that limiting my options makes it easier for me to make sure that A. I actually eat breakfast , and B. I make a healthy choice at 5am. Do you agree?)

What’s your favorite way to eat beets?
