Heather Dessinger  Real food blogger. Wife and mama. And potamus... Obviously.

#tbt to the time I asked my husband to get our daughter’s hair cut by a professional while they were running errands in town. As moms we are often so critical of how we do things and I was sure someone else could do a better job than me. This is how she came back, and I couldn't stop laughing. Thanks for the pep talk, Universe. We’re not as unqualified as we sometimes feel. ❤️#momlife

So here’s the deal about putting off weeding your garden. You’re definitely not supposed to do it, but if you do then finding melons growing in the middle of the jungle ends up feeling a lot like an Easter egg hunt. :)

Me When It’s Chilly Outside: Look, I baked you this delicious loaf of bread with almond flour!
Me Now: Here’s a sandwich, yes I know that’s an apple. It’s just like bread basically. I don’t know what kind of bread. Somewhere there is bread like this. Let’s go play in the sun! :)

Not saying this is accurate, but if you judged my priorities by my IG posts, pizza is pretty high up on the list. Not saying it’s not, though. Love this photo from @kmspin

When your physical therapist says “Let’s try cupping on that injury to see if it improves. I hope you don’t have to go anywhere after this because you’re gong to look like you have a hickey.” Oh, but I did. #alltheerrands

Which remedies for morning sickness are best supported by research? What can we do to increase their effectiveness? That’s what I’m talking about on the blog today. Would love to hear what worked for you! Link in profile :)

Kale yeah! Yesterday I mentioned that my daughter schooled me on the fastest way to de-stem kale, and I got a question about how to do that. Lucky for you guys I grabbed my phone and recorded her. #allthekalechips #andcreamykalesalad #kaleyeah

Last week my daughter schooled me in the kitchen while we were making kale chips. (Did you know you can QUICKLY de-stem kale with an apple corer? I didn’t!) And then, this. My six year old solves a 2x2 rubix cube. I'm like, "Okay, looks like you guys are ready to run things now. I'll just be over here reading."

One of my favorite facts from a post I wrote on motherhood. "We hold our children in our arms for a little while, and in our hearts forever."

So, earlier this summer I bought my littles a wading pool, then promptly ignored it for a bit. Fine, longer than a bit. When I finally grabbed the hose to clean it out, my kids protested because a family of frogs had moved in.
How I’m spinning this: I didn’t fail to clean out the pool. I created a frog habitat! 😂
How's your summer going?

Favorite podcasts? I have some deep cleaning to do and I've listened to just about everything on my list.

Pizza night! One of my favorite family traditions. This one is pesto with mozzarella and basil. What are you looking forward to this weekend?
