Fertility Boosting Smoothie!

In case you missed it, I shared a ton of fertility boosting and foods that are great for the two week wait the yesterday.  Many people probably don’t think much about the food their eating before or while trying to concieve but your diet can play a major role in not only your chances of conceiving but also your babies development.  So it’s very important to start thinking about your diet and what foods are best during conception time before you even begin trying.

Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie with About Time

Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie with About Time

Figs, figs, figs, figs!  Can’t get enough lately!  From Fig Jam to Fig muffins and most recently Fig Smoothies!

When the figs my mom brought me started to over ripen I cut up a bunch and tossed them into the freezer for future use.  They’ve turned out to be a delicious addition to smoothies that we’ve all been enjoying.  In particular, this Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie using About Time Protein Powder.


It’s light, refreshing and packed with protein perfect for after a workout, an afternoon snack or an addition to a meal.


About Time uses protein isolate which is the purest from of whey protein.  It contains 90% more protein and very little fat or lactose. This makes it an extremely clean, natural source of protein for anyone looking to add it in.

Favorite Fall Recipes

Holy cow it’s already Thursday!  Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as happy as the next person to welcome any day closer to the weekend but this week is literally flying by!  I think part of it is that every day we have been very busy.  Yesterday zipped by since it was spent in the Bay visiting my Grandpa at the hospital.  He has actually been moved to a rehabilitation center and is doing much better but has a long way to go.  Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers as they seem to be helping!

Okay so now that it is officially fall I figured it was okay to post some of my favorite fall recipes.  Although i’ll admit I jumped on board the pumpkin wagon as soon as Starbucks released their Pumpkin Spice Latte a few weeks ago.  We’ve already been pretty pumpkin crazy in our house lately but pumpkin isn’t the only food I look forward to this time of year.  I love apples, butternut squash, kale, spinach, pears… yum!
