- Seven Factors That Influence The First Forty Days – this episode takes you on a journey centered around the core concept of mothering the mother. When we take care of ourselves, we can care for our children. The article is an excerpt from the book that is one of my favorites – grab a pencil, your journal, a cup of tea and start articulating to yourself what your expectations are (and could be!) for your postpartum experience
- Four Relationship-Saving Questions To Ask Before Baby Arrives – when it comes to partnering to bring a new baby into this world, communication is key. Invisible, unspoken assumptions about who does what or what it means to play different parenting roles can make or break a happy home environment. Set your relationship up for success. Don’t skip out on asking the big questions.
And of course, Here is their book!
Peanut Butter & Honey Rice Crispy Treats
- 1 8-inch square pan
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup salted grass-fed butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups organic puffed rice
- pinch sea salt
- chocolate chips, peanuts, shredded coconut, dried fruit of your choice (optional add-ins)
- Put the puffed rice in a mixing bowl with the pinch of sea salt, add the peanut butter mixture, and stir until the cereal is evenly coated. Stir in any optional ingredients you’d like.
- Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch (20-cm) square pan and press down gently to cover the bottom. Chill in the fridge forat least 20 minutes, or up to several hours.
- When they are hard to the touch, cut into squares and enjoy. They will soften at room temperature, so best to keep them chilled until you are ready to eat.
