What To Look For in A Protein Powder + The Best Ones For Weight Loss

I love a protein powder because they blend so nicely in my smoothies and make them taste so much better. I also have a big sweet tooth, mainly because I am just finishing nursing my third baby, and nursing mamas crave that sugar! I love protein powders so much that I wrote about the best ones for breastfeeding mamas, as well as the cleanest protein powder you can get for new moms.

With so many options out there, it is super difficult to know which ones to choose, so I am going to go over some basics here, as well as mention some brands I love and recommend for weight loss and building muscle.

5 Genius Tricks To Start Running Again After Babies

As a mom of three busy, wild rascals, I rarely have an opportunity to workout or just think. I find myself driving the kids around aimlessly when I just want to let my brain relax and they are quiet in the car. Giving your brain freedom to wander is essential for rest and creativity.

For the last 4.5 years, I haven’t been running. I’ve been pregnant and having babies. Nursing and recovering. Now that my baby is 14 months, and the oldest is almost 5, I’ve started running again, and it feels so good. You really can start running again after years of not running. It’s not fun, but so worth it once you get going. After just a few weeks of running…
