I think this blurry photo accurately sums up our summer vacation so far. There have been tractor rides, boat rides, car rides, and wagon rides. There has been berry picking and carrots to snack on pulled right from the dirt. The weather has been hot, the days have been long, and the jet lag has been overcome. It's good to be back in BC.
Folks, last week I asked you for a favour, and I want to thank you so much for coming through for me big time. A special shout-out goes to long-time reader Kimberly A, who left ratings on over 20 recipes!
If you missed that note last week, the going's still good - it always is! Any comments and ratings left on my recipes really help me out, as they let Google know that this is quality content that deserves to be seen.
And speaking of recipes, I'm working on my autumn content calendar now for both recipes and nutrition posts, so if you've got any requests, please let me know!
On Hey Nutrition Lady This Week
This week we made Vegetarian Breakfast Burritos! They're mega delicious and use my patented one-pan technique so that we can cut down on doing dishes ????
We took a look at what you need to know about Pregnancy Nutrition in the Second Trimester, including how much protein you really need, healthy fats, iron, vitamin B12, and more!
And, I took you through the ins and outs of How to Make Chia Pudding, HNL style. HNL style involves yoghurt, but there are tips in the recipe notes for making a vegan or Whole 30 compliant Chia Pudding if that's how you roll.
WHAT’S TRENDING ON HNL THIS WEEK
These are the five most popular posts on Hey Nutrition Lady over the last week!
