Food Steamer For Weight Loss / Healthy Cooking

A few years back when I was trying to lose weight and developing healthy eating habits, I invested in a food steamer for healthy cooking which proved to be quite a boon for me. Steaming food not only quickens the food cooking but is also one of the healthiest and nutritious methods of healthy cooking. There were times when to cook food easily our grannies used to fry veggies etc so as to cook them fast in the wok. Times changed and our eating habits too began to be better with a lesser amount of activity. Let me share what my lunch and dinner generally consist of.

What We Got for Baby 2

One great thing about having a second baby who will be born at exactly the same time of year as his brother (two mid-September babies) is that he’ll very likely be able to wear all of James’ old clothing (since they’ll have been the same ages in the same seasons). And having them close in age means we still have all of James’ newborn gear—bassinet, swing, toys, etc. All this to say, we’re lucky that we don’t need too many new things for baby #2. But there are a handful of items we’ve gotten or decided to re-buy. Note: Links in this post are affiliate links. What We Bought for Baby #2 Newton Baby Breathable Crib MattressJames is still comfortably sleeping in his crib, so we knew we needed another one for his little brother. We’re so fortunate that my brother and siste...
