I love making lists.
I have lists of the best restaurants in town, the best coffee shops, the best clubs, the best boutiques….
Lately though, all my lists are about healthy recipes, baby clothes, best baby diapers!!!
I am especially proud of my ‘Healthy Foods’ Table. Eating healthy was my doctor’s number one recommendation. So I made this table to remind me of the essential nutrients, I have to include in my diet .
