Meatless Monday: Lettuce Love

26 weeks

Three weeks have passed & the baby has upgraded in size to a head of lettuce! Let me tell you, I can definitely tell that baby ‘L’  has grown since being a grapefruit. While the hub & I were in Scottsdale over Valentines Day (post to come) my bump was on full display in my teeny two piece bikini! Baby was sure loving the warm weather & floating in the pool.

Anywho…let’s get our salad love on! Here are a few of my fave salads that I have posted over the past year or so.

Greek Salad with ‘Feta Cheese’ – this ‘feta’ is to die for

Dharma Kale Salad – I have been craving this salad & having it multiple times per week lately

Brussel Sprout Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette – brussel sprout heaven

Cabbage & Carrot Salad – clean & simple

Hope you enjoy your Meatless Monday!

What have I been brewing?!?


No big deal…just brewing up a child! Yes, I am preggo! 23weeks & 2days to be exact.

My plan was to never stop posting – but it kind of just happened. I stopped reading my monthly books & picked up ‘soon to be momma books’ and in the kitchen I have been sticking to some pretty mediocre dishes (hello ground turkey, quinoa pasta & veggies with a lil’ sauce).

Anywho, I am planning on getting back on my game with thesparkledsidewalk! Look out for regular upcoming posts with a twist of mom-in-the-making to them!

With that said I thought it would only be appropraite to share 2 of my fave grapefruit recipes that can be made pre or post baby (yes, they are that easy!):

Broiled grapefruit with cinnamon sugar

Grapefruit, salmon & avocado salad (avocado is amaze for you in the 2nd tri)
