Dear mothers everywhere, I wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day!
I know that my mom is the most amazing mother I could have. Not only is she a strong and protective bear, she’s also a kind and loving bunny rabbit… who eats like a bird. Did I tell you that she eats toast + coconut oil + flax every morning for breakfast? Either that or a steamed sweet potato… with coconut oil and flax. 😉
Mom also drinks juice every morning – carrots + RAW potatoes + an apple. Every morning! She swears it keeps her “regular“. Once in a while (maybe every two months?) we’ll share a batch of oatmeal. She likes it, too!
I remember that I once asked my mom why there wasn’t a Children’s Day – and she told me that every day is Children’s Day! *she’s mopping right now – point proven.*
It’s true. Mom works so hard, day after day after day, to keep my sister and I healthy and happy. She works 24 hours a day, every day of the week. She cooks and cleans and scrubs and dusts and listens to me complain. She drives me to school and back, to volunteer and back, and to work and back. She buys me whatever I
want need, whether that’s yoga pants or frozen yogurt from Qoola. She would rather buy organic berries for me, and eat more budget-friendly foods herself (see above – potato carrot apple juice). Plus, she’s not paid a single cent!
I love my mom.
She flips the best pancakes. Yeah, all of those beautiful p-cakes you see? My mommy flipped them. I’m so proud of her. The pancakes that I flip – they splat all over the skillet!
She washes my dishes every morning while I run upstairs to change my clothes and brush my teeth. I don’t know what I would do without her… probably be late for school every day!
She supports me with my schoolwork. She can’t really teach me Advanced Biology, but she helps me find help from tutors.
Hello – she makes the best Mom Meals! This lady can single-handedly make 4 dishes in 15 minutes – no joke!
She taught me the importance of economizing. Save it if you can! $ $ $
She. Is. So. Generous. My mama is such a giving person. She always thinks of others before herself.
She eats salad greens with me! She prepares everything I need for my lunch in the morning, including a double batch of spinach/mixed greens. When I wake up, all I have to do is assemble. The greens I don’t eat = her lunch!
She is the best walking buddy. I love strollin’ around the block with my mommy. She is so much fun to talk to.
BTW, you can see a picture of her on this post. 🙂 I love going to Whole Foods with her on Pro-D Days – and sharing a big bowl of hot bar food with her.
In other news, do you remember the homemade pizza that I told you guys about?
Here they are! Everyone in my fam pitched in to make their own. All of the toppings were laid out by Mom – so we just had to roll and decorate our own pizzas.
I told you that mine was a ripoff of Boston Pizza’s Mediterranean Pizza – AKA my favourite pizza of all time.
Spread with spicy tomato sauce and
drizzled blobbed with garlicky basil pesto.
Stretchy mozzarella, creamy FETA, and a plethora of veggies – including sundried tomatoes!
Loved my pizza. So filling. It was different than the store-bought – in a good way. I really liked having homemade pizza, and we’ll probably do it again soon!
Yogurt with berries and muffin on top for dessert.
With crumbled lemon yogurt cake on top!
And chia. Never forget the chia. This dessert was fantastic. 🙂
FARMER’S MARKET TOMORROW!
I’m so excited. We’re going to buy bread, fruits, veggies… ah. I’m freaking out! 😀
MOTHER’S DAY LUNCH TOMORROW!
While my whole family usually goes out for lunch on Sunday, we decided to invite them all over for an awesome home-cooked lunch. Grandma is our special guest. We’re cooking all of her faves. I will update you soon about this lunch later in the week.
Bye for now!
