• My first time vending with @supermomculture at @craftsavvymarket today. I had so many moments leading up to today that I told myself that it would be a lot easier to just quit and not have a both.  But then I thought, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Just remember when you have an idea that starting is half the battle.  It won’t be easy but it can be done! Thank you @craftsavvymarket for having me today.  Mr and the girls helped out so much. Thank you to everyone that came by to support! I have no clue who the little girl is on the left but she stayed with us the whole day.

It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!

  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?

5 Tips from Yummy Spoonfuls to Keep Your Child Eating Healthy

June 17, 2016

Now that I’m home with my kids full-time, one item high on my priority list was making sure my kids eat healthy. I make sure the kids drink plenty of water too . We recently purchased a water ionizer after consulting Water Filter Way. Our water quality has improved so much ever since. I’ve been making Harper’s baby food since she was 6 months and meals for the family at least 4 nights a week. As a former anti-cooker, I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job. There’s room for improvement but I know that healthy eating habits start young. Not every mom is able to make baby food or cook healthy meals every night. What’s a mom to do? Yummy Spoonfuls founder, Agatha Achindu and co-founder, Camila Alves McConaughey have some great healthy eating tips to keep your kids on the healthy track. I recently participated in a Hangout with Agatha and Camila and here is a summary of some of the tips shared.
5 Tips yummy

  1. Stay consistent. Try to keep fresh fruit and veggies available for each meal. Your child will get used to them being a part of their meal versus, what’s that on my plate. yummy spoonfuls 2
  2. Lead by example. Make sure you’re eating right too. Kids are watching and the last thing you need them to say they don’t want to eat vegetables because you don’t. So take one for the team.

  3. Don’t stock junk food. This works with number 2. If they don’t see it, they won’t ask for it. If you want to scarf down a candy bar, do it when they’re not around.
  4. Hide the veggies. When I say hide, I mean sneak them in. Make fruit smoothes and add some kale or spinach. They’ll never know. It’s also easy to add to sauce based meals like spaghetti.

  5. Stock up on Yummy Spoonfuls. Made with all organic, non-GMO ingredients, Yummy Spoonfuls provides baby and toddler food just like you would make at home. Perfect for working moms or moms on the go (aren’t we all on the go).

Harper recently tested out Yummy Spoonfuls and she loves it. Her current fave is the banana, blueberry and brown rice. I’m looking forward to try the stage three meals when she turns 12 months. Yummy Spoonfuls meals are perfect when I don’t have time to make Harper’s meals or leave her with a babysitter.

I love that Yummy Spoonfuls doesn’t add anything extra. No sugar, no juice, no additives and no GMOs. Yummy Spoonfuls can now be found in the frozen section at Target stores. I frequent Target a few times a week, so this is very convenient for me. You can learn more about Yummy Spoonfuls HERE. How do you make sure your kids are eating healthy?

    When my son first started solids around 6 months, it was all about jarred foods partially because of convenience but also because I was nervous about making my own. As he got closer to a year & grew more teeth, I started experimenting with homemade based on the jarred foods he liked.

    I began with a sweet potato, carrot & apple mix, started adding chicken and then whatever greens I have on-hand. We still do fruit cups but dinner always consists of homemade to make sure he gets the healthy foods he needs.
