Do you ever take a moment to celebrate yourself? If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly on the move, busy with one thing after another and always worrying about the next item on your to-do list. And if I don’t take a break every now and then, I can definitely feel the stresses of every day life mounting up.

Which is why I’m teaming up with my friends at Stonyfield and PrAna! We’re celebrating #TheWholeYou, where you can take time to be present and enjoy a yummy snack while wearing comfortable, sustainable clothing. A moment where you don’t need to worry about what’s in the food you’re eating or the clothes you’re wearing. Time better spent embracing relaxation and being your authentic self.

My niece, Abree, loves yogurt and will eat it with every meal (and sometimes in between!). She’s always up to “go” anywhere, too. Just say the word and she’s heading towards the door. So, when I suggested a little picnic in the shade, she was more than happy to take a break and enjoy a snack.

It was a perfect day to don PrAna’s Cali Dress, as well. The strappy racerback design lets you enjoy the breeze on your shoulders and the relaxed fit of the skirt is flowy and feminine. By using materials and partnering with companies and factories that adhere to strict guidelines for safety and efficacy, PrAna is able to make the beautiful and functional clothing that I love, in a way that everyone can feel good about. And when paired with Stonyfield’s delicious Organic Whole Milk Greek yogurt, it’s a win-win!

Pistachio Shortbread Parfaits | http://mybakingheart.com #ShortbreadSociety

Spring has sprung and it’s absolutely beautiful! And now that the babies are getting bigger, we’ve been taking a lot of walks and spending a lot of time playing in the front yard. The weather has been gorgeous, as well, so picnics have been a must. While the little ones can’t indulge in these parfaits just yet, the adults sure can. The pistachio flavor is sweet, but fresh and light for this season of renewal. Perfect for sharing with friends or as an after-dinner treat a la patio!

Pistachio Shortbread Parfaits

Yield: 4 parfaits

Ingredients

  • 2 (3.4 oz) boxes Jell-O Pistachio instant pudding
  • 12 Walkers Shortbread Fingers
  • 8 oz chocolate ganache or syrup
  • 4 oz whipped topping
  • 1/4 c pistachios, chopped

Instructions

Prepare the pudding by following the directions on the box and while it's setting up, crush the shortbread fingers in a food processor. Once the pudding is set, begin building your parfaits by layering shortbread crumbs, pistachio pudding, chocolate ganache, shortbread crumbs, pistachio pudding, whipped topping and finally, a sprinkle of chopped pistachios. The amount of each ingredient will depend on the bowl or cup you use to serve your parfaits; however, you can expect a few tablespoons to a 1/4 cup in your measurements.

Berry Blast Smoothie

December 14, 2016

Now that I’m no longer eating for three, it’s definitely time to get back on the wagon… the healthy wagon, that is. I didn’t gain as much as you’d think, being pregnant with twins.
