Healthy Caramel Apple Dip

Do you ever have a sweet craving, but you’re conflicted because you’re also trying to eat healthy? Welcome to the story of my life! Enter my healthy “caramel” apple dip to the rescue. I’ve been eating this little treat for years either on it’s own (literally, with a spoon), as a fruit dip, for a snack, and for dessert (tip: freeze it to the point of just chilling for an extra special delight).

It’s also a great appetizer or dessert to bring to parties because it’s so simple to make, easy to whip together last minute, and a breeze to make in bulk – plus, you’ll be the hit of the party, so that doesn’t hurt.

My favorite part about this healthy caramel apple dip is that it tastes sinful but it’s really not – the rich, creamy texture and bold flavors will leave your sweet tooth satisfied and your physique thanking you.

Sometimes Weird, Green Poop is Just Weird. Green. Poop.

In our wonderful world of sharing today, information is literally at our very fingertips at every moment of the day. From connecting with other people, whether neighbors or across the globe, to Googling questions or asking Siri for answers, we truly do live in a world of infinite information.

No longer do you have to look up information in only Encyclopedias (like I loved doing when I was a kid); noooo, now on your quest for parenting answers, you have 14,800,000 Google results for “baby bedtime,” 3,040,000 hits for “baby bedtime books,” and hundreds of local to international Facebook parenting groups to join, asking for advice. What could be better than this, am I right?

No, I am not right. Because just like I get overwhelmed when a restaurant menu has too many items to choose from, the age of information can be exponentially more overwhelming than my epic diner decision to choose a Reuben or waffle (which, let me tell you, if often a painstaking verdict).

I’m a Mom with a Clean House – And That’s Okay

“Hi, my name is Lindsay, and I’m a mom with a clean house.”

*Cue irritated glares.*

Okay, okay, hear me out.  The thing is, during my first pregnancy and once I had my daughter, I read all the posts out there in Mommy Facebook groups, I read all the new momma blog posts I could get my hands on, and there was always a resounding theme – let the housework go, let the laundry pile up, feel lucky if you shower once a week. First, let me say that if that helps you, I am totally okay with that! I am on board and support any way that any parent survives and thrives. We’re all different, and that’s okay. My favorite speech teacher used to say a quote that has always stuck with me: different doesn’t mean better or worse, it just means different.
