Fall reading list for small business owners, new moms and pregnant bosses

October 17th, 2017 Posted by Food No Comment yet

I heard the ladies on Girl Next Door podcast talk about how they have a fall curriculum and I loved that idea. I thought it would be fun to do a round up for you of some books that are perfect fall reading material for the small business owner.

“Work with all your heart, because-I promise-if you show up for your work day after day after day after day, you just might get lucky enough some random morning to burst right into bloom.” 

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic

I’m on maternity leave right now, and it’s been a rare break in my entrepreneurial career. Never have I taken this much time off before, and it feels needed, indulgent, and a little scary. I find myself with anxious thoughts like: Will my clients be there when I return? Will I have time to work with a newborn? What if it just all goes to hell in a hand basket?

Pregnancy has me eating (and drinking) differently! I discovered a couple new favorite foods that are particularly good for pregnant mamas, or just plain yummy, like the decaf cold brew I whipped up awhile ago, and this lemon ginger drink.

pregnant friendly coffee drinks

Cold Brew Decaf Coffee with Cinnamon Honey Almond Milk

June 5th, 2017 Posted by Drinks, Non-alchoholic No Comment yet

This is pregnant lady friendly (or just afternoon/had to many coffees already but still want one friendly) and is sooooo good with the almond milk. 

I was at Starbucks the other day and had a cold brew toasted coconut coffee. While it was good, it got me thinking of some other flavors – and the fact that I can make my own cold brew in a decaf form so I can drink more of it! Or at least still have my approved one cup a day AND an afternoon cold brew.
