January is coming to a close. That means some of our regular activities start back up. It was nice to have a little break from the busyness.
This week we’ll jumping in head first with speech therapy, Kindermusik, dance and a playdate. I don’t like that I’m starting out feeling run down after being out late last night. A nap may be in order today!
A couple weeks ago I started adding raw egg yolks to my diet. They seemed to go well for my little one. So last week I tried eating whole cooked eggs. She had some reactions last week, so I’m wondering if it’s the whites. I’ll take them back out for a week or two and try again.
I think I’m going to start my little one on broth this week. I’m excited to see her reaction.
I finally have all of my supplements! I started taking my vitamin K2 last week. Yesterday I started liquid cod liver oil (so I can get the correct/higher dose) and skate liver oil. The skate has vitamin K as well. I’m really hoping that I will see improvements now.
The food addition for my son has been at a stand still. He’s still been acting a bit off. Today is supposed to be our day to try sourdough. But I’m not sure if he’s ready. We’ll see how he’s doing today. I hope we can. Both of the big kids are so excited!
I was reading the beverage section of Nourishing Traditions last week and read that adding gelatin to raw milk makes it easier to digest – that is part of the homemade formula recipe. So when we are ready to try milk with my son again I will definitely try that! I also found recipes for oat and quinoa milk. Those are on my to-do list now.
Today I am going to try grinding amaranth. It’s been a while since I’ve ground any grains. Once I see how that goes I can order my bulk grains.
We have a playdate at our house later this week so I’ll be doing some extra cleaning and preparing a few snacks.
Last week was the week of broth challenge. I hope you joined in! I loved making sure my family got broth every day. I’ll do my best to keep that up.
I also posted some recipes in my simple smoothie series – kiwi strawberry and sunrise. I’ve got more coming this week. Be sure to check back.

Sounds like another delicious week! We had sweet and sour meatballs, potato soup and ham and bean soup last week. 🙂 Will Abram eat potato soup since he doesn’t like potatoes? I do half potatoes and half cauliflower when I make it. Really hoping all the immune boosting remedies this past week do their job.. The stomach flu is running rampant in Orlando, from what I’ve heard… :-/
No, he won’t eat it and I can’t. But the other two can 🙂 I’ll just do broth w/ veggies for us.
I hope it all goes well!!! I just saw something about measles in Disney Land.
