Apparently I have a hankering for baked goods lately. I like fiddling around in the kitchen changing up recipes and making new creations. Now that my little man is eating food, I like to prepare one meal that we can have as a family instead of a grown up meal and a baby meal. Baby Led Weaning is awesome ...

Now, I am keeping a food diary to account for every gram I eat for two weeks. I am not a big meat eater. In fact, I am not ...

My bad habit that is. Caffeine I have had a hunch that is been affecting my fertility. When we conceived last summer, I was not drinking caffeine. But, because of my work schedule these days, I have been drinking more coffee in the past several months. I would say that I drink an average of 12 oz. per day. That isn't ...
