COLD and FLU & Stomach Flu Season- How to Prevent it / Temporada De El Resfriado y la Gripe y De la Influenza Estomacal- Cómo Evitar

It is the season of colds, flu, and stomach flu ergo it is very important to prevent our little ones from catching such. A few tips, always sanitize your shopping cart with Clorox wipes. If you are attending a birthday at a pizza parlor wipe down the games and rides before your little one touches. Sometimes wiping everything down may become a bit too much so I will try to wash my little ones hands ASAP or wipe them with anti-bacterial wipes soon  after touching items that may be contagious. This is especially important before eating solids and Mami’s be sure to always wash your hands too. Also boosting our little one’s immune system by providing them with enough vitamin C intake. Vitamin C is of course in oranges, orange juice and bananas. It can also be found in strawberries, papayas, guavas, kiwi and broccoli. Though most of these viruses are airborne we can decrease the likelihood of our babies catching any of these bugs. Read more

Healthy Lifestyle Day 2 / Vida Saludable – Día 2

Healthy Lifestyle Day 2 / Vida Saludable – Día 2

To pick up from where I last left off on this Healthy Lifestyle change, I will share my Second Day.

Day two started with an even later wake up time due to the previous night’s extreme workout session my husband had to endure, today was my turn and I was super anxious! My baby and I went for our morning 45 minute walk while the husband went to the gym for his 45 minute hike.

 

Breakfast:

yogurt-breakfast

Greek Yogurt with blueberries and a few strawberries. Wheat toast and egg whites. We both really enjoyed the breakfast, however, we are now in search of a lactose-free Greek yogurt, will report back on our findings. This went into “this is a keeper” list of healthy recipes.

 

UPDATE – FINDINGS: Whole Foods used to have lactose-free Greek yogurt, due to unpopular demand, they no longer have it. Ralphs, Vons and Trader Joe’s don’t have it. If you find a place that carries it, leave a comment with the info!

 

Lunch:

veggie-soup

Vegetable soup with chicken (nope, not chicken soup). The soup was surprisingly yummy, I would have never in the past, when making chicken soup have made it with these selected veggies, this one I made up so click on the photo for the recipe. This was also a keeper.

 

Snack: 75% cacao (my fave snack!)

Today was my first day of personal training and it was incredibly tough, I am so out of shape! I did it though and immediately started walking like a giant jelly. Training is at 8pm to allow time for the husband to get home and take care of our baby. That means, by the time I got home, showered, breast-fed and got ready to cook dinner, it was all ready at 10pm. Super late dinner, not the healthiest option.

 

Dinner:

steak-n-shiitake-shrooms

Steak and shiitake mushrooms. I generally love steak but I was so exhausted and it was so late at night, I couldn’t enjoy it too much. This went in our “maybe again list”.

Vida Saludable – Día 2

 

Para empezar de donde los deje en este cambio de estilo de vida saludable, voy a compartir mi segundo día.


El segundo día comenzó un poco más tarde de lo planeado debido a la sesión de entrenamiento extremo de la noche anterior que mi marido tuvo, hoy fue mi turno y yo estaba super ansiosa! Mi bebé y yo fuimos a nuestra caminata por la mañana de 45 minutos, mientras que mi marido se fue al gimnasio para su escala de 45 minutos.

Desayuno:

yogurt-breakfastYogur griego con los arándanos y fresas. Tostadas de trigo y claras de huevo. A los dos nos gustó mucho el desayuno, sin embargo, ahora estamos en busca de un yogur griego sin lactosa, informare sobre nuestros hallazgos.

ACTUALIZACIÓN – RESULTADOS: Whole Foods solía tener yogur griego sin lactosa, debido a la impopular demanda, ya no lo tienen. Ralphs, Vons y Trader Joe’s no lo tienen. Si encuentra un lugar que lo lleva, deja un comentario con la info!

Almuerzo:

veggie-soupSopa de verduras con pollo (No, no es caldo de pollo). La sopa era sorprendentemente deliciosa, nunca me lo habría imaginado, hice la sopa de verduras con pollo con verduras que normalmente no hubiese seleccionado, esta receta me inventé, así que haga clic en la foto para la receta.

Merienda: 75% de cacao (mi aperitivo favorito!)

Hoy fue mi primer día de entrenamiento personal y fue muy duro, estoy tan fuera de forma! Lo hice sin embargo y de inmediato empecé a caminar como una gelatina gigante. El entrenamiento es a las 8 pm para dar tiempo a que mi marido llegue a casa y cuide a nuestro bebé. Eso significa que, en el momento en que llego a casa, me ducho, le doy amamantar a mi bebe y preparo la cena, se dan las 10pm para cenar lo cual es extremadamente tarde, no es la opción más saludable. Tendré que averiguar otra manera de llevarlo.

Cena:

steak-n-shiitake-shroomsFilete y setas shiitake. En general, me encanta bistec pero yo estaba tan agotada y era tan tarde en la noche, que no pude disfrutar de ella demasiado.
