Afternoons At The Greenburgh Nature Center

One of mine and Luna’s go-to places is The Greenburgh Nature Center because it’s less than 10 minutes away.  It’s an amazing nature preserve tucked away amongst the hustle and bustle of Lower Westchester.  There’s an amazing playground, walking trails, falcons, owls, bald eagles, farm animals, reptiles, a vegetable garden, and much more.  The best part, is that it takes me away from my stresses and gives me some quiet time to not think.   Annnd most importantly, it makes Luna happy! … The other day Luna picked the beans from the garden – oooops… shhhhh…

 

Today, Luna gathered the fallen leaves from a nearby tree that the goats and sheep find very tasty!  We figured out a fun system for Luna here, goats and sheep eat leaves and chickens eat the grass… Even though, you’re NOT suppose to feed the animals….  It’s all good family fun 🙂

Favorit Snack, Luna’s Lunch And More

Snacks are a MUST with me because I am ravenous all the time… I’m constantly on the go and NEVER sit down.  I love my nut butters!  Of course, in moderate  amounts because it is high in fat.  This snack above is one of my favorites – Lundberg organic brown rice crackers and Novelle Naturals walnut butter.  One cracker and a half tablespoon of walnut butter satisfies me for a short while – great snack that helps keeps your insulin levels even, avoiding a spike which causes cravings!

 

Luna’s lunch today was about a 2 oz turkey burger made from Organic Plainville ground turkey, Tolerant red lentil penne, steamed organic broccoli and avocados in tomatoes in Bragg apple cider vinegar that’s not shown.  She ate ALL of it and then had my homemade coconut yogurt.  She is an amazing eater – it truly pays off to eat healthy during pregnancy and instill healthy values from when a child is born.  Luna loves all the foods that I ate while I was pregnant and that I eat now – healthy, wholesome foods that are all organic.

 

Back at the Greenburgh Nature Center today.  Teaching Luna how a zucchini grows and that it’s NOT ready to be picked just yet – yikes!  I introduce Luna to as much as I can no matter what it may be –  nature, a growing garden,  animals of all types, the world that’s out of the normal box and in it.  I keep myself as healthy as I possibly can and keep my mind sharp, open and always willing to learn and expand… Why? Because I am Luna’s role model and example.
