I get a lot of great questions in my comments, and I think a lot of people would like to know the answers…SO, I went back through them and am going to attempt to answer some of them! All types of questions….here we go!
What do you do with flaxseed? Do you put it on oatmeal? How do you incorporate it into your meals? Same with steel cut oats?
**I put flaxseed in oatmeal, veggies, salads, casseroles, protein bites, etc. Basically I try to sneak in a little wherever I can. Sometimes I use steel cut oats and ground flaxseed to give the feel of “fried” veggies, the healthy way.
Can you share how you marinate your chicken?
**I cook it in olive oil (use the mister) and use Italian seasoning, minced garlic, and cracked black pepper. I either cook it in a frying pan OR on the George Foreman grill. If I ever use salt, I use sea salt, but that’s mostly for my hubby.
One thing I struggle with are healthy lunch and breakfast ideas for my children. Can you recommend something?
**Obviously I don’t have kiddos yet, but this is something I’ve thought a lot about. I like natural peanut butter & Ezekial bread (maybe use cookie cutters for fun shapes), carrots & other raw veggies they like, fruits (make fruit salad and let them decorate a container to store it in), etc. I have a few things pinned on Pinterest to help with this in the future (you can follow me on Pinterest in the upper right corner….pinned under the Baby Butler’s & Delicioso boards). I also found a great article today about this very subject- check it out here.
What do you eat with your hummus?
**Raw veggies! YUMMM!!! I try to avoid crackers, pita chips, pretzels, etc., just because they’re processed. The more real, whole foods, the better!!
How tall are you, Danielle?
** 5’5 1/2” (I think I look taller than I actually am.)
Where did you get your blue maxi dress (pictured above)? I can never find one long enough and I think you are my height!
**TJ Maxx. They have GREAT dresses! I love Marshall’s too.
What is your goal to look like? Are you interested in getting into body building? Just curious and please don’t take this as a mean post! Just a compliment and question :) also, when it comes time for babies are you still going to take these supplements?
**My goal is to get in the BEST shape of my life before babies so I can bounce back quickly, have a better delivery, and be in the best possible health for my baby. I know pregnancy will change my body and I may not look like I look now, but I believe in being healthy for HEALTH reasons….not for vanity. Yes, I will continue taking the supplements that are safe while pregnant and nursing. There is actually a pregnancy/nursing challenge and several of my friends are having incredible results! I will DEFINITELY continue with the shakes, one Spark a day, the Probiotics, CorePlex with Iron, and OmegaPlex. My OBGYN actually said the CorePlex with Iron & OmegaPlex combo is BETTER than ANY prenatal she has seen.

I just looked at your wedding pictures and I absolutely love your dress!Would you mind telling me the designer?
I don’t know anything about designers, honestly, so I had to really search for this one! I found it in the Spring 2010 collection from Maggie Sottero….It’s called Adorae. You can check out the link Here!
Here’s me in it!!
If anyone has any other questions, feel free to comment and ask away and I’d be GLAD to answer!!! I hope those of you who asked those questions read this post!
