Recipe: Duck Bacon Avocado Toast

MSPI mamas know that avocado is a lifesaver. Full of vitamins and minerals, plus healthy fats, this nutrient-dense food can help you pack in the calories in a healthy way. When you’re burning upwards of 500 calories a day breastfeeding, that extra energy is critical. But sometimes I get in a rut with my avocado and need to try different ways to work it into my diet. Duck bacon avocado toast is one of my favorite easy lunches that mixes things up a bit.

Recipe: Instant Pot Moroccan Chicken

Whenever my husband is feeling a little homesick, I like to make him some home-style Moroccan food. He loves a good tajine, which is basically the original Crockpot. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the time or spare hands to cook one! We’ve adapted his chicken tajine recipe for the Instant Pot, and while it’s not quite as good as the real thing, it’s pretty dang delicious and ready in less than 30 minutes.

WTH is MSPI?

My son was delivered with ten fingers and ten toes. Blue because of some complications at the end, but otherwise apparently healthy. Our stay at the hospital was a breeze and Ilyas seemed well… Until our first night at home. We could not get him to lie down and sleep. My husband and I tried everything we’d read in the mountains of parenting books. And he just. Wouldn’t. Sleep.
