Birthdays’ occur just once a year. Bummer…
30th birthdays happen only once in a lifetime. Win!
I wanted to do something amazingly special for my 30th this year. I wanted a perfect Paleo Carrot Cake, a beach, sunny weather, sand, a hot tub and peace and relaxation. I got everything I wanted, except the last two things…who knew kids loved hot tubs so freakin’ much?! Give the adults some quiet time will ya?
We spent four bliss filled days in a beautiful house in the woods. We woke up, soaked in hot tubs, drank BulletProof Coffee, walked ridiculously fast on beaches, WODed on decks and in the sand and anywhere else we could perform movements. We worked out for THE FUN OF IT. We threw logs around, we sprinted in the sand, we did double unders under cedar canopies, we did way too many push ups, we ate a lot of cake, we relaxed, and we had fun. Oh and we nerded it up satellite style with the premiere of Season 3 of Game of Thrones. So sue me…it premiered on my birthday. I LOVE THAT SHIT RIGHT THERE….I’m still reading book two but I don’t care!
I’ve struggled with dairy since I was about 20 years old. After years of tolerating it (or so I thought), I suddenly became bloated and uncomfortable every time I ate any kind of dairy product (mainly low fat varieties of low quality dairy). I tried Lactaid for a while but gave up as it is extremely expensive and kind of made me think that maybe I shouldn’t be eating it if it bothers me…
When I got pregnant the first time, suddenly I could dairy again! No problems whatsoever. I continued to go on and off the dairy for the next nine years. Which brings me to today.
The vast amount of knowledge I’ve built up over those nine years is just not quantifiable, it’s invaluable. I eat dairy as much as I want now, no problem, no digestive aids, no Lactaid, nothing. So what is the key to being able to eat dairy no problem? Although I don’t feel like I’m qualified to answer that question for everyone, here is what worked for me:
Eat high fat dairy, preferably cultured or fermented. The bacteria added to cultured and fermented dairy aids in it’s digestion. My favourites are grass fed yogurt, butter and kefir. Hard cheeses such as KerryGold Dubliner are a favourite too as well as any and all goat milk products (naturally lactose free).
I don’t often write posts centered specifically around consumer products….so expect a return to the normal recipe post by the weekend…
This. Vacuum. Rocked. My. Socks. OFF!
Seriously. I have been using a Shop Vac for two years and before that I only used a broom (hardwood floors) and before that…a crappy Dirt Devil that overheated and never came back to life. I have never owned a “good” vacuum and with my lion’s mane of hair plus two shed-erific dogs and your standard dirt from kids, etc. I was highly in need of a vacuum intervention.
So I got the Shark Rotator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum from the Canadian Tire Destination Home Guide after being gone for three days and having a super busy weekend after returning (ie: I had not had time to wash my clothes yet, let alone vacuum the floors). The dogs were here the whole time, being looked after by family, so that accumulates fast, being that it is spring, they shed about thirteen pounds of hair a day….not joking….it’s gross.
We don’t have very much of the square footage carpeted, but the carpets that are around are the dogs favourite place to lay down, or wrestle…which in the beams of light from the sun looks like a cloud of dog hair and some moving animals.
Here’s our area rug in between the kitchen and office:
I know you see that dog hair! Gross. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that it looks like that right after I vacuum it…at least with the Shop Vac. But look what happened after I vacuumed it with the Shark Rotator!
This was with after using the brushroll feature. You just push a button on the top of the vacuum when you hit a high pile carpet and the brushes start rolling…almost like a self powered lawn mower. It kinda drags you along. Then I made the mistake of looking in the clear canister. JUST THE CARPET. Oh my god! That’s embarrassing.
