I brought my office to Kokkino's today while construction workers have taken over our house, and Jon the owner is taking good care of me. I've been sick since last week and have no voice. He told me "drink that seven times" referring to the ginger-lemon-honey concoction he made me. Apparently I get 7x free refills, sweet. Oh, he made me that killer breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese, tempeh, lettuce, tomato, mayo and sriracha. I love this place.

Words help me with my grief. I already missed you before you were gone.

Green smoothie sprinkled with cinnamon and chia. Even the baby likes this one!

Just made me some peanut butter cookie dough. It's #vegan, packed with protein, and healthier than the regular stuff, but it sure ain't healthy.
Aunt Flo is on her way and I know if I don't make a semi-healthy sweet snack in advance, I'm going to go ham on pre-packaged sweets that are waaay worse for me. So I'm saving me from myself.

I've been dreaming about meal prepping for a while and I've been failing pretty miserably at making that dream a reality... But it's totally fine because I achieved my first success today! I just made this @ohsheglows #greenmonster for breakfast tomorrow. I had some of it now (of course, I couldn't resist) and it's SO good.
I find it hard to stay motivated to accomplish these kinds of goals consistently. Anyone out there meal-prep successfully and have any tips on how to keep it up long-term?

Starting my morning off with a turmeric latte inspired by @joyoushealth's recipe.
I've been reading about the benefits of turmeric and I'm seriously intrigued (there is no concrete evidence within the scientific community as of yet, but early scientific trials have shown promising results. Search the NCBI for curcumin and cancer). This is essentially representative of how I approach holistic health as a whole β€” with an open mind, yet with science and facts at the forefront.
But I digress: this latte is actually so delicious! . Coconut milk (heated)
. 1/4 tsp turmeric
. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
. Honey

Blend all ingredients and voila!

Parker's first piece of art at school! Clearly he's an artistic genius #proudmom #fridgeart #abstractart #babyprodigy #notbiased #kauffstinker

I needed to see this today. Thanks @gabbybernstein #spiritjunkie #theartofmovingon

I can't handle this kid.
Props to @kauffman_j for dressing Parker this well and building him that bench πŸ‘ŒπŸ» #kauffstinker

My dream man made me my dream home office! I actually love working at my new desk every day, and my cherished books finally have a worthy display!

Please note the heating pad below my chair to warm my perpetually cold feet. Not my fave decor item, but I can't live without it. Other fun items to search for in this Waldo-esque photo include my new wood-grain essential oil diffuser/humidifier from @amazon (it's in the cart) and my new calendar with inspiring quotes each month from @calendarclubca, which I'm a little obsessed with.

Happy birthday to my sweet boy who is one year old. Being your mom is best thing that ever happened to me. You make me laugh every day and remind me that the world is full of wonder. This past year, I've had the chance to see the world through your eyes... and that means saying "wowee!!!" 100 times a day to all the incredibly interesting things that adults forget are so marvellous, like food, buttons, a watch, necklaces, a spec of dirt on the floor or a tiny crumb on your high chair. Even things we adults think are a nuisance, you find fascinating and worthy of your undivided attention in order to understand what it does and what it means, and I want to be more like you. Thank you for reminding me how to explore a world I thought I knew. Thank you for reminding me to laugh as much as humanly possible. Thank you for making me happier than I've ever been in my life. Happy first birthday Parker β€οΈπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚ #kauffstinker

And one second later he's all 😁😁😁 #kauffstinker
