I have learned so much these past few months, I decided I should share a little with other pregnant women who are looking for some advice (or even just a little encouragement). There is a living being growing inside of you which need lots of nourishment, no wonder you're hungry.
I found out I was pregnant on my birthday weekend this past July.
I had a little break from filming Heartland in Calgary, so I drove up to a cabin in the Kananaskis Valley.
This magical mixture will pack your diet with Omega 3 fatty acids which help your baby grow (especially her brain!
), and healthy fats which appease your growing appetite and make your skin and hair shine.
My favourite snacks are yogurt with Birdseed (recipe to follow), toast with almond butter and honey, fruit (especially bananas and apples), cheese and crackers, cereal, protein shakes, mini carrots and dip, granola and almonds.

What an incredible idea, take a wicked punk rock band like THE BRONX, and mix in a full Mariachi section, including horns, acoustic guitars, and violin.It is a wonderful gift and a highly unlikely experience for a show to last this long, so I feel thankful for the experience.
