Strawberry Salsa

Image borrowed from Pinterest

1 package of strawberries
1/4 red onion
1 jalapeΓ±o (use half the seeds)
Tbsp of sugar
Tbsp of sea salt
Tbsp of balsamic vinegar
Lime juice
Cilantro

I used my nutri bullet and pulsated it a few times but just chopping would probably be better and leave it a bit more chunky and pretty like the picture πŸ˜‰

And now that I’ve read about a few other strawberry salsas I wish I added avocado to mine!

I’ve made mango and peach salsa before and even mango peace but the strawberry salsa was heaven and would go perfectly on fish or shrimp tacos πŸ™‚

Enjoy

SANGRIA recipe

20140430-205656.jpg

So it was my first time making sangria and I couldn’t decide between red or white so I decided to make both… I basically mixed tons of ideas from different recipes I found on the beloved pinterest (my addiction).

white wine sangria
bottle of white wine (not oak aged)
fruit thinly sliced:
grapefruit
apple
orange
raspberries
lemon
2 shots of Brandy
(*let soak overnight)
next morning add half a liter of perrier lemon sparkling water!
enjoy πŸ™‚

Red wine Sangria
same thing πŸ™‚ *best with a spanish wine

Looks and smells amazing already.. can’t imagine it tastes too bad either.

review coming tomorrow!

Good morning

Happy Monday everyone πŸ™‚
Miles did us a favor and slept in till almost 10am this morning! With a small play break from 6-7am in his gym on the floor next to our bed…

We got really lucky and have such an amazingly easy little babe. He goes to bed every night so easily around 730/8 wakes up just enough to whine a little and nurse back to sleep around 3/4am and sleeps till about 7 when he usually wakes up to play for a little before his morning nap around 10

I’m nursing him into his “late morning nap” now and unfortunately missed my yoga class at 12 because of our late start but hey it’s Monday πŸ˜‰

Marcus has to study all day so Miles and I might hit the park or go on a hike depending on how soon I can get myself moving and out of weekend mode.

Started the morning off with a tasty breakfast… Coffee. Greek yogurt with fruit and toast with cheese and turkey ! I’m a huge vitamin believer so each morning I take magnesium, vitamin C, B12, calcium, D, omega and my prenatal vitamins since I’m still nursing (and they’ve done wonders for my hair).

Ps I snuck a little finger full of Greek yogurt into Miles mouth this morning and he loved it. I can’t wait to start purΓ©ed foods! He’s soon turning 5 months old and I think we’re going to start introducing a few homemade organic foods in a few weeks to get into a routine before Sweden.

Breakfast on the go

Marcus & I are smoothie addicts. Ever since we traded in our juicer for a Nutribullet we have blended almost everything. We made our own hummus, salsa, guacamole and soon baby food!!! πŸ™‚

The possibilities are endless.
This morning it’s a smoothie with strawberries, pineapple, kale, spinach, chia seeds, and grapefruit!

Let’s kick start this day! We are planning on taking Miles to see the Easter bunny for his first time today πŸ™‚
