Delicious Orange, Almond & Chia Cookies

I am in love with cookies lately! This is the 5th batch of cookies I have baked in the past month. I have made some hazelnut chocolate ones (recipe will be in my ebook), some almond and chop chips ones and I made these Orange, Almond & Chia Cookies twice this week. The first ones were a little burned but still super delicious so I made another batch today to share on my blog. I feel bad for not having shared any recipes for a while and I hope I'll be forgiven with this delicious recipe!

These cookies are honestly really really good- they taste buttery and are a little chewy on the inside and can be made in 5 minutes. Children could make these too. And they are healthy, vegan, paleo and gluten free.

3rd Trimester Nesting Ideas


I am now officially in the third trimester- time went by so quickly! I am hoping to cook these babies for a bit longer though. We have been told they could come out anytime now due to a few umbilical cord blood flow issues for our twin boy and I am grateful for everyday they stay in.

So nesting started a little early for me. Most women experience "nesting" in the last few weeks of pregnancy as a way to get their home ready for the new addition.

I have now been on maternity leave for 3 weeks and have achieved quite a lot. My house is cleaned, the nursery is ready, the freezer is full and the pantry well organised!

I am not a nesting expert but I thought it could be helpful for other mums-to-be to share what I have done while on maternity leave apart from watching 3 seasons of Orange Is The New Black on Netflix!

Surrender- My biggest lesson in Pregnancy


Surrender:

  1. To relinquish possession or control of something to another because of demandor compulsion.
  2. To give up in favor of another, especially voluntarily.
  3. To give up or abandon.
  4. To give over or resign (oneself) to something, as to an emotion.


Being pregnant was not like I anticipated it will be. I wouldn't say it was worse nor better- it is just one of those life experiences that you can't imagine or plan really until you experience it for yourself. I assume motherhood will be a lot the same!
