Blog Love Friday! 2015 May 22

Blog Love Friday

It is difficult posting a blog when the internet decides to be patchy. In this technology driven age, we expect everything to run smoothly all of the time. It doesn’t. Sometimes the best thing to do is to unplug and do something else.

SPROUTING COMMUNITY:
3 Steps Anyone Can Take to Reduce Water Consumption | Food 52
Lack of water is a much greater problem than the internet running smoothly. Many people think of it as a third world problem but North America has shortages too. No matter where you live, do your part and save some ‘liquid gold’.

FEELING OFF-BALANCE:
Food Adventures from the Road to the Carolinas | A Natural Disaster
This is a lovely summary of the ‘Continental Breakfast’ and the various additives you consume from the prepared spread. We have also struggled with eating healthy when the choices are white flour waffles and maple ‘flavoured’ syrup. Recently, we started using Homeaway.com and choosing to stay at a home instead of a hotel. It gives us the opportunity to make our own meals and enjoy a more healthful start to our day.

GIGGLING TO BALANCE:
An Open Letter to Aspiring Exercisers Who Parent Young Children | Parent Co.
Oh did I love this post. Written by a writer that gave lots of ‘how-to’ exercise advice pre-children and now fully understands that having a child is exercise itself.

LOCAL SPROUTS:
For those with young children, you may appreciate taking a Wee Hands Sign Language session of classes. It can help you with the awkward stage where your child doesn’t have the ability to speak but knows what they want. Being able to teach a few simple signs (e.g. milk, more, etc.) to your baby can make a less stressful household. It is also another way to meet local families with children of similar ages. My husband did it with our daughter when he was on parental leave and enjoyed the experience. There is a session starting June 1, 2015 at Silly Goose Kids. The Wee Hands link above takes you directly to the registration page.
