Milk and Madness

Holy cow!!

Two posts in a week??

This is madness!!

Speaking of madness…I feel kind of like a cow. Not in an “Oh my gosh I’m huge” way…more like  an “I am a milk machine” kind of way. Ha.

Emma is definitely going through another growth spurt over the last few days and she is a very hungry little lady. It feels like I am nursing her CONSTANTLY! But it’s okay…because she’s adorable…and she’s 1 month old today!!! Oh time. Part of me wants it to stop so she’ll be a little peanut forever…but part of me wants her to eat a little less too…so I suppose I’m okay with it progressing at the rate it is. đŸ™‚

Anywho, I’m actually sharing a new, quick, easy recipe with ya’ll today!! Quick and easy recipes are the only way I can really function these days, so this smoothie is PERFECT!! And it’s peeeeerfect for a nursing momma!! Why? Because it’s got protein and a banana for staying power, flax seed for omega 3’s and to boost that milk supply, and coffee (decaf for me…but you do you) to give you that little boost you most certainly need if your baby is anything like mine and would rather eat all night than sleep!  Bananas and coffee may sound a little weird together, but I promise, this smoothie is amazing!!
