Kale Detox Salad

This is Jen's new go-to snack and meal course. There are tons of variations on this, but this one is ours. If eating the garnish doesn't seem appealing, it didn't to me either, but this salad really is quite good. It also holds up in the fridge very well.

Dressing:

  • Zest of one lemon
  • Juice of one lemon (~50-60 mL)
  • 1tsp honey (we go heavy on the honey)

Lo-Carb, Gluten Free, Protein, Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

We got this recipe from Jen's mom who found it in a cookbook in her library, but has never been able to find it again. They are surprisingly good considering they have evil sucralose in them.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, unsalted, softened
  • 1 cup sucralose (only use 3/4 cup if using sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat ("natural cane sugar" dehydrated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 1 cup vanilla whey protein powder (use 1 tsp vanilla extract if using unflavored)

December 2013 Newsletter

It has been 4 years since our last newsletter. As you may recall, we were just preparing for the birth of our first son at the time. Logan was born right on schedule, March 25th, 2010, and our lives have never been the same since. Logan has blessed us in more ways than we could have imagined. He was a very happy and easy going baby who started walking at 9 months of age. He is now almost 4 years old and just started attending preschool this summer. He really seems to enjoy school and showing off all he learns.

Jen's Green Thai-ish Curry

This little concoction is the product of Jen's experimentation with Thai curry paste. It's quite flavorful and with a light, fresh taste, and unusual vegetable composition.

Curry Sauce:

  • 1 can coconut milk (approx 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry paste (available from most Asian food stores; we have used yellow and panang paste with good results
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 tbsp peanut butter (or 4 1/2 tbsp peanut butter powder plus 1 1/2 tbsp water)

Logan Turns Three... months that is

Logan turned 3 months yesterday, wow has it been a fast three months. Jen has been making a baby photo book for him, and it's incredible how much he has changed in just 3 months. He's very interactive and vocal now. He flirts with the baby in the mirror, and he hits and grabs at the toys hanging from his "gym," and to commemorate his three month birthday decided to learn how to roll over.

Logan has arrived!!

The Eagle Stork Has Landed

On March 25, 2010 at 3:25 p.m., Logan Matthew Heyman came into this world. He was 20 inches long and weighed 7lbs 2 oz. He has a full head of hair, a conehead, and a flattish little nose that doesn't belong to either of us. Without further ado, I give you Logan!

December 2009 Newsletter

IMG_0697a_thumb.jpeglogan.jpegWell, we're at the end of yet another year. As our parents always told us, time speeds up as you get older. I still think things that happened three years ago happened only a few months ago. It's been a while, since we have sent out an official newsletter/update, so it's about time. (This newsletter will only cover 2009, but I'll go back and retroactively add in some past newsletters later.)

Family Stuff

God has continued to bless us this past year with our continued health, steady jobs, good friends, our loyal doggy...and we're having a baby!!!!! Jen is seven months pregnant with our firstborn who we're told will be a boy. His tentative name is Logan Matthew Heyman. Jen's due date is March 24. We have a wishlist/registry available if you would like to contribute to the welfare of a minor.

Trip to Alaska

Trip to AlaskaJen and I just got back from a cruise to Alaska.  We took the Pearl from Norwegian Cruise Lines from Seattle to Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, and Victoria.  We had incredibly good weather--not a cloud in the sky the whole trip and temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

Dr. and Dr. Heyman Go to Washington

Well, at the ripe young age of ...
