Happy FIRST Father's Day to this incredible DAD and husband! I always knew you would be a great dad and I love seeing you thrive in your new role as dad to our sweet Ella. Ella loves you so much and I love seeing her safe and happy in your arms. You can bounce her to sleep like a magician. You make sure she always has clean jammies and warm feet. I love those quiet moments when I'm nursing Ella to sleep and you help make extra "Shhhing" sounds for white noise. You spoon me food when my hands are busy nursing our daughter. You help care for the house, the yard, are always fixing and improving things and are an amazing business partner. We are so blessed by you! Today I hope you feel extra loved and you enjoy some fresh donuts from that local shop you love!! 👩🏼👶🏼🧔🏼#fathersday #firstfathersday #family #healthygrocerygirl #healthygroceryguy

NEW on the blog I'm sharing 5 things I do everyday to care for my postpartum body. One of them includes wearing a belly band!

Read today's post here: https://www.healthygrocerygirl.com/blog/postpartum-care/

"After having a baby your core is very weak and all of your internal organs are shifting back into place. Your uterus is contracting back to its normal size and your tummy is very soft. You’re not supposed to engage your core while it’s healing so that you don’t cause more damage or permanently separated abdominal muscles. Your abdominal muscles naturally separate during pregnancy to make room for baby. Any damage to them or improper healing can cause permanent separation called diastasis recti. Wearing a wrap or support helps to act as a splint keeping the abdominal wall tighter." I saw @rachelnicolefit describe the benefits of a band and I couldn't have said it better myself!

My personal experience is that a belly band feels like a hug for my uterus! Everything feels tight, cozy and I've noticed my stomach shrinking which is great because the only exercise I can fit in right now are walks with the family and when I can fit it in my pelvic floor exercises and yoga!
Belly Bandit is giving away a band of your choice to someone in our HGG Community! If you'd like to enter the giveaway head to our Instagram account @HealthyGroceryGirl for giveaway details!!

These muffins are bananas… B-A-N-A-N-A-S! These Gluten-Free Banana Hemp Seed Muffins taste ah-mazing and make the kitchen smell so good! Check out my recipe below!!

BANANA HEMP SEED MUFFINS
Makes 12 Muffins

DRY INGREDIENTS
1.5 cups of gluten-free flour baking mix
¼ cup sugar (I love using coconut sugar!)
2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup Nutiva USA-Grown Organic Hempseed

WET INGREDIENTS
1 cup non-dairy unsweetened milk
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 ripe bananas
1 egg (or 1 flax egg)
¼ cup coconut oil
½ tsp vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add all dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together. Add non-dairy milk and lemon juice to a small bowl, stir and set aside for 3 minutes. In a medium bowl, add peeled bananas and mash together. Add the egg, oil and vanilla extract and whisk together. Add wet mash to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Pour into muffin baking dish and sprinkle extra hemp seeds on tops! Bake muffins for 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before enjoying!

What I love about Hemp Seeds is that they are rich in protein and minerals, with the ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3, making hemp is the world's most nutritious seed!! They are loaded with all 20 amino acids (including the 9 essential) and the protein found in hemp seed is very digestible, making it a great choice for sensitive diets. Nutiva USA-Grown Organic Hempseed’s are grown and processed entirely in the USA, supporting organic farmers in Colorado. The raw, shelled hemp seed (AKA hemp hearts) are also processed without hexane or chemicals. You know I love my hemp seeds and I sprinkle them on just about everything! Salads, oatmeal, baked treats, yogurt bowls, in smoothies… the options are endless! Are you a fan of Hemp Seeds too?! #sponsor #healthygrocerygirl #nutiva #hempseed #USAhemp #BreakfastBoss #glutenfree #dairyfree #recipe

This time of year I love getting fresh local produce from the Farmer's Markets and making giant crunchy salads. The tip for making salads meal worthy and not lame is...

1. No Soggy Wilted Lettuce! Make sure your lettuce is fresh and DRY after you wash it.
2. Color & Texture! Get creative with different color veggies and various textures of your ingredients to satisfy multiple senses. We eat with our eyes first!
3. A Really Good Salad Dressing. Dressing can make or break a salad. Check out some of my favorite homemade salad dressings on the blog at HealthyGroceryGirl.com
4. Not Just Veggies! A salad does not have to be just vegetables... which could leave you feel hungry soon after. Make sure to add healthy fats like avocado, olives, nuts and seeds as well as protein and grains to fill you up!

What are some of your favorite salad ingredient combinations?

Such as simple dessert but so healthy and so good! Both raspberries and dark chocolate contain fiber, antioxidants and heart healthy properties. I recommend getting 65% or higher chocolate. The higher the percentage of your chocolate the more cacao bean retained and the less sugar or milk. The cacao beans are where all the nutritional benefits are!
