Problem Solver

Today Jackson received a "problem solver" award at the quarterly awards ceremony. It's one of the character traits that they focus on. He has always been a curious little person who loves figuring things out, so I thought it was a fitting award!

Olivia loves to check out the fish tank whenever we visit Jackson's school.

For lunch, I made the Horseradish Dill Hummus from Appetite for Reduction. I love horseradish. Olivia and I polished off the whole bowl, along with pita chips, carrot sticks, and a peanut butter protein ball for dessert.

For dinner we had veggie burgers with curly fries. I was hungry, can you tell?

Hot cocoa is a bedtime treat I've been enjoying on the regular. I don't buy the prepackaged mix. It is super easy to make your own. I like to add maca to mine.

Maca Hot Cocoa
8 oz. almond milk
1 tsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. maca powder
2 packets stevia

Spoon the cocoa powder, maca and stevia into a mug. In a separate cup, microwave the almond milk for 2 minutes. Pour it into the mug and stir vigorously with a fork, to break up any clumps of cocoa powder. 


  1. Congratulations to Jackson! The horseradish dill hummus sounds delicious! I love horseradish, never thought to put it in hummus!

    1. Me neither, but it's so good, try it!
