I had high hope of yesterday being a good day as the boys and I had nothing on our schedule. A very rare occurrence around here.
Things really started looking up when for the first time in over a week I didn’t have to take Judah directly from his crib to be hosed off outside due to some “issues”. I also didn’t have to do the two extra loads of laundry that I’ve been having to do everyday for the past week.
Oh yes. Things were good. I took him off gluten for three days and it’s like a miracle. Crazy. I don’t know exactly what’s going on, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’ve turned a corner.
*Note- the recipe has been updated with a printable version here.
I topped it with some SunButter on one half and some coconut butter on the other.
I also made some time to clean. I felt like I had to since I recently got some products to sample from Green Works.
It may or may not have been a set up by STUFT Daddy to get free cleaning supplies to make me feel like I have to clean a bit. Ha ha. Just kidding.
Goodness knows though that I’ve been doing my fair share of disinfecting this past week. Ugh. I decided to put these products to the test.
These wipes were pretty handy and have found a new home under the kitchen sink for easy access.
The all purpose cleaner not only smelled good, but seemed to clean up my dirty stove fairly easily.
It was clean for approximately 2 hours (during naptime).
This Green Works stuff is awesome. I think I have a new favorite all purpose cleaner, which is good timing since I can’t seem to locate Simple Green anywhere lately.
I have to admit I haven’t used the toilet bowl cleaner yet. I dread cleaning the toilet. I wish Kitty drinking out of it would count as cleaning. Kidding. Kidding.
Okay, now onto some snack talk.
I’ve spend over $100 dollars the past few days stocking up on gluten free foods for Judah. I figured it would be too difficult to have him be gluten free while letting Joaquin eat everything, so we’re all making a few changes.
The boys really wanted to do a video so here we are talking about some fun gluten free finds. Most of our goodies are from Trader Joe’s and are on the go snacks. I’m new to all this, so I just shopped for things that had a little “g” on the package and/or said gluten free.
The video is short, the food finds are tasty and Kitty makes a cameo at the end for a little gluten free dance you won’t want to miss (especially on a Monday morning). I’m not sure why we taped this in the family room, but oh well. Oh and don’t mind the glare on pretty much all the packages I hold up. I’m pretty professional like that.
Another on the go snack that I didn’t mention on the video are Larabars.
We love them. I tried to hoard some from my race last weekend, but they were only letting people take two samples each. Boo.
I talk about this stuff in the video also, but Love Grown Foods granola is pretty spectacular.
I got my first LOVE drop a couple months back that is dwindling away.
The first empty bag was this one of course.
And well, since it’s Monday and all, I thought I should share the LOVE.
I have some coupons to give away.
One reader will receive two coupons: one for a FREE bag of Oat Clusters and Love and another one for $1.00 off of a bag.
