Consumer Review: MyOatmeal.com – Napa Valley Joyride

Customized oatmeal, folks. This isn’t your mama’s Quaker Strawberries n’ Cream instant oatmeal. This is healthy oatmeal for grown-ups. Well, it’s for kids too. But try going to your local store and buying instant oatmeal with currants, golden raisins, and Turkish apricots. It just isn’t going to happen. Continue reading

Prenatal Nutrition…It’s Important!!!


*Note from Merry* Today’s post is brought to you by Katie from over at Moore From Katie.

The nutrient needs of a mother can vary from woman to woman and it’s important to speak to a doctor about what is best. Just like the doctor will give advice on diet they will also be a great resource on other pregnancy and delivery related topics like exercise, cord blood banking, circumcision, and pain management medicine.
