Did you know that August is national Breast feeding month? When I read that in the Healthy Living Made Simple magazine from Sam's Club it made me feel triumphant considering Solin was weaned this month. It was a long process but she is official an independent toddler. Now that she doesn't drink breast milk any more I have taken it upon myself to make sure she is getting all of the best nutrition she can.When we went to Sam's Club the other day I took her shopping with me and she helped me find some good things throughout the store:
The main reason I go to Sam's Club is to buy the coconut oil. I use this oil for everything. You can even use it as moisturizer for your dry skin! But truly I love to put a teaspoon in a pan with my morning scrambled eggs or when my husband makes his vegetable stir fry. And after reading this article in Healthy Living Made Simple about how great coconut is... I'm not trying to gloat but I must say that I am proud of myself because there are so many benefits of using coconut. You can drink coconut water, use coconut milk in recipes, or sprinkle your food with coconut flakes. All of these options give you an extra nutrition factor that wasn't there before. I will be using my coconut oil to roast Brussels sprouts with pumpernickel salt.
By the look on Solin's face she doesn't seem to be a big fan of coconut oil. But truly she doesn't know that this is what we cook her favorite vegetables in!
Solin is at the stage where she knows the difference in temperatures. However, she calls everything "Hot" even when it's cold. When we felt the refrigerator door at Sam's Club Solin yelled "Hot, Hot, HOT!"
She just too cute for words:
While we were in Sam's Club for over an hour. Solin got a little restless. I took her out to hold her for a while. But then she just wanted to run around and climb on everything:
I had to take a seat to let her do her thing:
And usually I take my time to send snaps to my family in Montana:
We can't forget about the bananas for my little monkey:
When I go to Sam's Club I like to buy the fresh produce in bulk. We usually find spinach, Brussels sprouts, and artichokes at a great price:
