The winners are…(winners will be contacted by email to claim their prizes)
We all get lots of exercise/physical activity. I try to make healthy choices for my body and mind and love myself in the hope that my daughters will see that and love themselves, too.
The biggest thing I do to keep my kiddo healthy is to be a good example of healthy habits. Monkey see, monkey do, right? I try to eat right and stay active and since he eats what I eat and comes along with me for all of my activities (because he’s still a baby), hopefully, he’ll grow up to see those habits as a normal part of his daily life. I also breastfeed and will until he weans himself, and make sure we have lots of fresh veggies and fruit on hand for meals and snacks… basically every decision I make is for the health and well-being of my kid. From where I live to where I shop to what I do with my own free time…
We make homemade yogurt, sweetened with stevia, to keep everyone healthy We also just recently switched to cooking with coconut oil, and I love it!
Having 4 stepkids and 2 year old daughter, encouraging healthy habits is a must in order to prevent the plague of the month entering and destroying our household (LOL!). Handwashing with sweet smelling castille soaps whenever using the bathroom and before every meal; we try to make each dish colorful like the rainbow — raw veggie salads must be eaten first; we take vitamin C supplements; and soak our toothbrushes in grapefruit seed extract at least once every couple of weeks. Finally, we are so fortunate to live in a beautiful place so we take lots of family hikes, for example, this morning we hiked to some blackberries and chowed down before breakfast. xo
