I was using food as a BAND-AID for everything that wasn’t going well in my life.

It was all gone within few minutes. This whole bag of chocolate chips that I had planned to mindfully enjoy throughout the week was all gone. Food had become a BAND-AID for everything that wasn’t going well in my life (read how I broke free below…….!) I really wanted to learn moderation and how to[…]

Today’s post is a guest post my Real food dietitian Lily Nichols, an expert on the topic of gestational (pregnancy) diabetes. Unfortunately, the current guidelines to manage gestational diabetes still include the consumption of too many carbs and don’t focus on food quality during this crucial period for baby.   If you’re interested in learning more about this topic,[…]

Pregnancy: Third trimester update

Wow, I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Summer is almost over and September is already here.  This is the month I’m going to have a baby! 🙂 My due date is mid-September but I’m ready to welcome my little one anytime this month. Before that though, let me update you on what has been[…]

My 10+ favorite pregnancy, birth and baby books

One of the first things I wanted to do when I got pregnant was to buy books! It’s just the way I am. Whenever I’m faced with anything new, my first instinct is always to get more information. Knowledge is power, right? However, I felt very overwhelmed by the millions of pregnancy, birth and baby[…]

Pregnancy: my second trimester

Times flies by! I can’t believe I’m now 7-month pregnant, with only one last trimester to go until my little one arrives. I can’t wait to meet this little bundle of joy but at the same time, I just feel like there so much left to do until then! But *taking a deep breath*, one thing at a time[…]

Gestational Diabetes Screening – is it really necessary to drink that horrible sugar-rich and chemical-laden drink between your 24th and 28th week of pregnancy?

If you have been around pregnant women or have been / are pregnant yourself, you may have heard of the infamous test done between the 24th and 28th week of pregnancy to screen for gestational diabetes.

A visit at the farm during pregnancy to prevent allergies and autoimmune conditions for your baby

Pregnancy update: 22 weeks

It’s already been a little while since my last pregnancy update (week 15 and week 12) so here’s what happened in the last couple of months. April was pretty busy with school (naturopathic medicine) as usual but I still decided to take some time to travel. I attended Paleo f(x) in Austin, TX and drove all the way to[…]

Pregnancy: 15-week baby bump update

I think I’m starting to show a little… I’m finally past the “I look like I ate too much” phase. 🙂 I’ve started wearing maternity clothes although they’re still a little big for me but my regular pants are just too uncomfortable to wear. Unless I wear them unbuttoned with a BellaBand, a wonderful product some other[…]
