Working Moms Inspire Me


Being a working mom, there are days that can be so overwhelming. And yet it there is something so rewarding about it at the same time. There are many working moms in my life, and many I have never met yet they all really truly inspire me on a daily basis whether they know it or not. With mother’s day this weekend I thought it the perfect time to share with you just a few of these moms that I find constant inspiration and encouragement from.

Who are your working mama inspirations? let’s celebrate them! Cheers to that thing we know as working motherhood lovely madness!


Mom Monday {quinoa breakfast bars}


I started experimenting with these a few weeks back and these may just be my favorite breakfast treat to date. I try to make a big batch of something to have for breakfast for the week. It makes the mornings go a little quicker, and still ensures we are eating something wholesome and yummy. Plus Piper and my husband LOVE these so that’s a win win.


What I love about these is that there is no baking required (just make your quinoa ahead of time). They are actually super quick to make. I also love that they have quinoa in them. It’s a great way to get some super foods in you and your family first thing in the morning. Plus you have breakfast made for the week which is pretty great.


Happy Mom Monday my friends. Let me know if you try them!

Mom Monday {strawberry quinoa bowls}


With spring here, we are getting so many delicious things in our CSA basket. Here is a salad I whipped up for a party we had this weekend. It was a huge hit with parents and kids alike. Even with the parents that shall we say don’t normally go for the quinoa! Enjoy!

PS. if you have kids that are not huge fans of salad, try calling them bowls instead.
