Anonymous asked: I wanted to tell you congrats on expecting your second child! And was curious are you hoping for a girl this time so you have one of each or would you rather have all boys?
Thanks! I don’t know about the sex. Boys are so fun and we are mostly prepared for a boy as far as “things” go, but a girl would be exciting and different! My sister is having a girl this summer so they could be friends. I guess that means either way things will be wonderful. :)
Anonymous asked: Are all three of you on completely different diets? Why?!
What? Who? I’m pregnant, so I’m definitely not on a diet. I also don’t “diet” ever. I’ve cleansed a few times in my life but I think eating healthy foods everyday is the only way to be healthy and maintain a healthy weight, so that’s what I do. Since being pregnant I’ve been pretty sick, especially at night, so I am just eating whatever sounds edible, really. Adam recently discovered this “paleo” thing and he likes the simple approach to food and how straightforward that approach is. Who else makes three? Keaton is four and doesn’t know what a “diet” is. As far as his diet, like the typical food he eats on a regular basis, he eats whatever we eat and if he doesn’t like that he loves PB&Js (organic, whole wheat, real fruit jam…you get it), fruit, nuts, veggies, yogurt. We have it figured out, so don’t you worry about it!
Anonymous asked: You know there have been many studies saying that if you aren't celiac, there's really no reason to avoid gluten. So why do you do it?
Adam’s loosely following a paleo diet, which is gluten-free and also his mom has celiac so he wants to test his sensitivity. The thing that is funny to me when people are against gf is that they sometimes don’t realize there are dozens of other grains and flours and starches that are so, so healthy that don’t have gluten and have more vitamins/minerals than wheat. I don’t follow a gluten-free diet, but I love trying the recipes because it opens up a whole new world of ingredients. Last night he made “vegetables and biscuits” a take on chicken and biscuits. The biscuits were made of brown rice flour, nutritional yeast, coconut oil, tapioca starch (and some other ingredients). These are some very healthy foods and eating a variety of grains and oils instead of just plain old white flour biscuit mix and canola oil is very healthy. Gluten-free, vegan doesn’t always mean cucumber salads and seaweed soup—there are some nutrient packed, warm and gooey, delicious family meals in that cookbook (for example—spinach artichoke dip) you’d never expect unless you gave it a try.
