Apparently having three little ones takes parenting to a whole new level. Not to scare anyone who is embarking on their third and God bless those who are on more than that, but I’m not sure how you do it, other than just survive. I’m counting on the fact that it will continue to get easier. There is no need to correct me if I’m wrong, I’m sure easier is not the word, just different. Right now, sleep is all I really need and I keep telling myself some day there will be a time when I have to actually wake my kids up rather than them waking me up countless times a night and at awful hours in the morning.
After two horrible night-time sleepers I am really holding out that our third will be a sleeper. We all know I need it, and especially my poor husband. Regardless, I have learned a thing or two after surviving two kids. One is, no matter how long the nights get, I need to count my blessings each day. I get to hold and love my babies (even if it is during the night), something many don’t have the opportunity to do. Even in the midst of screaming, ear aches and nightmares, I am comfort to them and these moments of holding will be gone before I know it. I’m trying to be reminded of all that I have, even when it seems like everything could unravel at any moment (as it is around me as I type this).
Some have asked how I continue to manage my blog, cooking and photography? Well I must tell you it isn’t usually pretty, my kitchen is a nightmare with dishes heaping in the sink and all over the counters, the kids screaming because they are hungry and me in my own little world, cooking, creating, keeping myself sane. This blog of mine, helping you to stay healthy is also helping me to stay healthy and more importantly stay sane. It is my outlet, obviously my place to vent and a record of our little health journey. Each day is a new day, a new start, and one that I am thankful of. I’m also thankful that you continue to listen to my little pity-parties and someone can slap me now and remind me that we are only 2 1/2 weeks post baby, that it all is a matter of time. —>insert slap<— Ahhh…I feel much better now!
And moving on to the real star of the show, HHHEEELLLOOO garlic herb flatbread. Crispy, grain-free, paleo flatbread. The better news, it actually tastes like bread! Wha-wha-what? Oh yes, like straight up, I need this in my life, comfort food, bread. Need I tell you how simple it is to make? Your heart may actually skip a beat on this one. Use it to dip into soups, make a panini, a pizza or just eat it buttered with herbs. This is a game changer. It is so easy, I am worried you will be tempted to make it too often. Remember, this is still not intended to take the place of vegetables, but it could be used as a great additional to them!
This recipe does use tapioca to create a better bread-like product but is pretty much pure starch with little or no other micronutrients and redeeming qualities. It would not be the best idea for someone who is seeking weight-loss or in need of extreme gut healing. This recipe is not intended for daily consumption but a great addition on an occasion or two or when that craving strikes. Although it is WAY better than your typical store-bought crust.
I hope that didn’t ruin it for you…now go back to drooling and try whipping this up soon!
