Eating healthy has been a big part of my adult life and it’s important for me to raise Indigo on a nutritious diet. As a child I ate way too much sugar and I wasn’t very active which lead to me being overweight by age 10. I want Indigo to avoid going down the same path, especially given my family’s history of Diabetes. I believe that health and happiness go hand in hand. I teamed up with Jolly Llama to share the ways I’m raising Indigo to be a healthy eater (dessert included!)
The temptation to eat high calorie food laden with sugar and fat are everywhere. Eating healthy doesn’t mean a life of no desserts- that would just be sad! Instead of having ice cream we have Jolly Llama Sorbet Pops.These push pops are Gulten-free and non-GMO. They’re also dairy-free which you’d never guess by this delicious, creamy taste.These Sorbet Pops are seriously amazing!!! They come in mouth-watering flavors like raspberry, banana coconut and strawberry. After dinner I like to sit on the back patio with Indigo and we enjoy our Jolly Llama Sorbet Pops. They’re the perfect guilt-free treat!

- One of my favorites hobbies is vegetable gardening and Indigo loves it too! He helps me water the plants every morning and harvest the veggies and fruit. Tending to a vegetable garden is a great way to connect ourselves to nature and the food we eat.
- I use healthy substitutes. Instead of tater tots, I make cauliflower tots. Instead of chips we eat hummus and veggies. We also drink water instead of soda or fruit drinks.
- I keep the dining out/takeout to a minimum. It’s so easy to over-indulge at restaurants and you never know how much fat/salt/sugar is in the food. I like to cook almost all of our meals. Bonus- it’s much cheaper!
- I don’t keep unhealthy food in the house. This may sound extreme but it has the biggest impact. If unhealthy food is in the house it’s too hard not to be tempted!
