5 Tips for Healing from Anemia

Tips for treating anemia, five things I did to aid in my recovery.

Menorrhagia anemia is when your heavy menstrual bleeding causes you to become anemic. Check out this post for five tips for treating anemia.

Recovering from my endometrial ablation in 2016 was rather quick and painless. Recovering from the anemia as a result of my menorrhagia (heavy menstrual bleeding) was a much longer and more difficult process.

For almost three months I was having constant heavy bleeding. I didn’t feel the impact of the severe bleeding until about a month in. I was hanging laundry on the line and I was out of breath and my heart was racing. Like, I-just-worked-out racing. A few days later the doctor’s office called with my blood results saying I was anemic and should start taking an iron supplement. read more

Garlic and lime guacamole, an easy and delicious guacamole recipe.

Garlic and lime guacamole, a delicious and easy guacamole recipe that comes together in just one hour!!

Another Tyler Florence recipe coming at ya. I adapted this guacamole recipe from Tyler Florence when I was in pursuit of a cheaper alternative to the store brand Wholly guacamole. It is one of my favorites but I was tired of paying so much for it when I knew I can make it cheaper for myself.

I could live on guacamole. Besides pizza, it really is the perfect food. Delicious, healthy, and versatile. You can eat it with chips or have it on top of toast. Or serve it with my slow roasted chicken tacos!  read more

Back-to-school time is great opportunity for homeschoolers stock up on some supplies: notebooks, markers, folders. I don’t know about you, but everytime I brave back-to-school shopping I either can’t find what I need or they are sold out of what I wanted to buy! It’s so frustrating. I would much rather replenish my school needs from Amazon. No crowds and I always get what I need.

KonMari Folding with Kids

I tried the KonMari folding method with my kids. Here is how it turned out!

Want your kids help with the laundry? Do your kids take FOREVER to fold their clothes? Try KonMari folding with kids as a solution! Click here for more!

Laundry is an endless task. Whether you have 10 kids or 2, it always seems like there are clothes, sheets, and towels to wash. I am lucky in that I don’t mind doing laundry, (my DIY laundry detergent really helps this!) but I don’t want my kids to grow up never having done laundry. Everything from washing and drying to folding and putting away.

But let me tell you, it’s much easier than it sounds. It would be so much faster and less stressful if I just did it myself!! Why do my children fight me so much on such a simple task?! Enter the KonMari method. read more
