Did I survive Meatless October? Click to see how it went. | www.TheMamaDen.com

Girl…I decided to do Meatless October. Meaning to eat NO MEAT for the entire month of October. Let me tell you why.

Why – I just don’t crave meat the way I used too. And after watching health documentaries the desire for meat gets more and more weak. Also, as I mentioned before I began seeing a Natropath about 4 years ago and she mentioned a part of her program was to eat a meatless diet for 30 days. Her instruction helped my health in so many other areas (Hey Camille!) that I believe going meatless has health benefits.

Car Seat Safety with Cars.com | TheMamaDen.com

Psst…FYI, this is a sponsored blog post for Cars.com.

All my adult life I thought the car seat went in the middle so when I was pregnant that’s where I told B to install Camille’s seat. The infant seat was in the center and the convertible seat too.

Earlier this year I went to The Mother of All Baby Showers and a car seat specialist was a speaker on the panel. One thing she said that stuck with me and I share with all Mamas “the best car seat is the one that fits your car, child and budget the best”.

Purchasing stuff for your kids can be addictive. Especially babies. Before you know it you have 47 onesies, 56 blankets, 4 mobiles, and more wall decals than you have walls. I’m not that bad but I could be if I didn’t check myself and my account at the register/check out screen. I can’t lie though, I was getting a little out of hand when I was pregnant and on bed rest. I had nothing else to do so I blogged and shopped all day long. Check out these 7 questions to ask yourself before purchasing and save yourself come coins and disagreements with Hubby. Read more…

Can Protein Bars Really Taste Good?

by

Pretein bars that are actually perfect! -Perfect bar | TheMamaDen.comPsst…This is a sponsored post for Perfect Bar with Moms Meet.

You see protein bars everywhere these days. Literally every store sells them. I’ve tried them and I’m sure you have too; but did you like them? I found some for I liked and purchased for a while. They didn’t taste too bad and I thought I was doing the right thing by having a protein bar for an afternoon snack. When I began to look more into the ingredients I was consuming I stopped buying them as much.

I did a little searching for vegan protein bars and I found a few that weren’t very palatable. After that I just gave up. Fast forward to the day Moms Meet emailed me and said “hey, wanna try these refrigerated protein bars?”. I thought to myself if the bars have to be refrigerated they must be natural which means they must be healthy. I agreed and I’m hooked! Read more…

She’s Turning 2 Already?!

by

Camille turns 2 | TheMamaDen.com

Yup, Camille will be 2 on the 20th. Where has the time gone? I know every parent must feel the same way. Camille is doing very good! She transitioned to daycare really well. Her new sleeping arrangement went well and she’s learning at such a fast pace.

Day Care – This was the biggest transition for Camille this year. She had been staying with her grandparents during the day since she was 7 weeks old. She was eager to be with other kids and burn off some energy. ┬áThe center we chose is amazing. I love the staff, curriculum, safety, everything about it. I have no regrets and nothing bad to say.
