Low Carb Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

My last recipe was a vegan meal. This one could easily be if you leave out the Apple chicken sausage and use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. However. Since I occasionally enjoy lean meats, I thoroughly suggest the organic Apple chicken sausage!! I used 1 large spaghetti squash, prepared by baking it at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. (cut length wise, remove seeds, place face down on a cookie sheet with a little water.) Meanwhile, I sauteed the sausages (3 cut up) with 2 cloves of garlic. I cooked a package of quinoa in a separate pan, using half water and half chicken stock. When the sausages where done, I added diced celery and carrots with a tbs of rosemary. Perhaps a cup full of both veggies combined. I added the quinoa when it was finished and at the last minute threw in some chunks of kale. I took out my spaghetti squash, shredded it as necessary, filling it with the quinoa mixture and adding a little of the spaghetti squash. I topped it with ch…

Vegan Burger: Black Bean Burger

Black Bean Burger
I'm not a vegan vegan. I'm not anti meat or anti cheese. (mmm cheese) But I have to be very cautious how I eat, for my body, and for my son who I am still nursing. I cannot, CANNOT, have dairy unless I want to really have a colic day. NO THANKS. When I'm nursing, I am strict on my dairy. I also just eat small amounts of meat. One of my fav cheat meals is a hamburger. Scratch that, a cheeseburger! My go to vegan option is my Black Bean burger!! It's amazing. Sidenote: my husband even loves them and he is a food/meat connoisseur. If you're interested, it takes 5 min to prepare and all night to enjoy, plus it is super low calorie!  Patty Recipe: I use my ninja blender and combine the following: 1 Can organic Black Beans (rinsed)
Half cup bread crumbs of choice
About 2 tbsp dried cilantro
Dash of black pepper
Dash of garlic salt When they're at a refried bean consistency, remove and roll into balls. Pat flat. I "fry" them on my stovet…

Belly Wrapping

Belly Wrapping So I was a guest on Elise MamaBear's YouTube Channel. We did a Vlog about belly wrapping.



The belly wrapping we did was strictly DIY with household items you would normally already have. It was recommended to stay on overnight. :)
The purpose of belly wrapping is to shrink your stomach, tighten skin, detox. It is a temporary fix only. For permanent results, leave this blog post and get some medical attention. Diet and exercisssssssssseeeeee......
Anyways, it was fun. Even if the funnest part is just hanging out!
Te he he....enjoy! (And subscribe to her channel!!!)

What if Adults Did What Babies Do?

Role Reversal Documenting Brittany Vlog 3



Babies are so cute.
LOLS
So, this is my third Vlog for Documenting Brittany. It is a take on role reversal. What if we adults did what babies did?
Yes, I know, my wall is very blue.
Oh, and yes, don't worry...I didn't neglect my children in the making of this. They were a crucial part of it. :)
Also, just a tidbit of defensiveness, I don't spend hours on my phone. This video literally took me about 12 minutes to make. Plus, documenting my life (Documenting Brittany) is really fun for me and I know my kids will look back one day and be glad I did!!!

Hope you enjoy! Leave some comments and don't forget to subscribe!
