Happy Mother’s Day!
I would love to extend a wonderful message to all my amazing Fitness Mama’s out there by saying, Happy Mother’s Day! I would love to also say, that Mother’s Day doesn’t need to just be celebrated on one day of the year but perhaps on several day’s throughout the year..
So Fitness Mama’s go ahead and pick more than one day to celebrate all the you do for your families, friends, co-workers and church. You deserve more than just one day, you deserve many! So do something special for yourself once a month, that’s 12 day’s out of the year that you celebrate YOU… go have a manicure & pedicure, massage, walk on the beach, read a book in the park, ?treat yourself to sushi, take a yoga class, go out to lunch or dinner. What ever you choose do something special for yourself ?one day a month to honor how amazing you are! I believe this is the way to celebrate, Mother’s Day once each month and not just one day a year. Do it, because your worth it…
Here is a special treat to try on one of your special day’s… A Gluten Free delicious dessert that you and your family can enjoy…
A perfect treat , this is easy to make, antioxidant-rich dessert features low-glycemic coconut ?sugar. Serve it a la mode with a scoop of organic coconut-milk-based, vanilla frozen dessert and a few fresh blueberries for garnish.
