Website Review - EatingForBreastfeeding

~ Posted on Sunday, May 27, 2012 at 10:17 PM ~

Few months back, I have the opportunity to review this wonderful website which is aim at providing information such as recipes, news and more to nursing mothers as well as giving the avenue for mothers to interact with the professional staff on the site with regards to food intake and breastfeeding matters. So here goes my review for the "EatingForBreastfeeding " website:

Description from the product page:
"We have a free video series we are offering right now. To access the rest of the content, a viewer has to purchase a membership.  With that, they get life-time access to the site. We have video interviews with our Registered Dietician talking about the foods they should and shouldn't be consuming while nursing, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, etc. We also have a section where members can ask questions directly to our Registered Dietician. Our goal is to be their personal nutritionist while they are nursing, so mom and baby get the most out of breastfeeding."

Note from sponsor:

"We are adding a section that will provide nursing moms with 5 recipes a week for a full year (plus a shopping list each week)! We want them to get all the nutrients we recommend, so we have brought a chef on board to provide original recipes containing the foods nursing mamas need :-)  We will be rolling that out within the next month."

Feedback for "Home" section:

The website is easy to navigate, with the following sections on the menu tab: Home, Ask Stacy, Recipes, Meal Plans & More, News and Resources. I like the list of videos provided in this section such as Breastmilk Basics. A very informational video clip!

Feedback for "Ask Stacy" section:

I like that members of this site can get to ask questions directly to the registered dietician! The Q&A layout makes it easy to see the questions and replies but I would prefer if there are categories for each questions asked so that it is easier and quicker to search through the topics we wanted to look for instead of scrolling up and down each Q&A.

Feedback for "Recipes, Meal Plans & More" section:

I like the recipes provided though I'm not sure whether it's my Firefox setting or what but the bulleted list of recipes is not aligned properly with the recipe names. I'm just a bit particular with alignments hahahah... I also appreciate the meal plans in PDF format provided as well as the shopping list and more. I totally love the freezer fridge guidelines in this section!

Feedback for "News " section:

In this section, there are news relating to pregnancy, baby, formula and more which may be of interests to mothers. I would appreciate if there are more news being added to this section as there are currently not much articles in this section.

Feedback for "Resources" section:

In this section, there is a list of websites which members can check out to get more information on other resources. I think it would be great if websites such as or LLL are being included into this section as well.

Summary of feedback:

I think there are a whole lot more potential for this website as I don't get to see many websites which has information with regards to eating healthily for breastfeeding mothers, what more with a registered dietician on site to answer any questions you may have!

I do however think there should be more information and articles provided to keep members interested and to stay on to this website.

Hearty Banana Oat Flapjacks

~ Posted on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 9:19 AM ~

It has been months since I posted stuff related to baking or cooking. After my last recipe post on the Easy to Remember Pancakes, I browsed through the recipes on my iPad and came across this recipe which is quite similar, except you add oats into  it as well! Anyway, without further ado, here goes:



Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes


* 2 large ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
* 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2  cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  (I used Ben's organic instant baby oats)
* 1  tablespoon baking powder
* 1/4  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  (I omitted this)
* 1/4  teaspoon salt (optional) (I omitted this)
* 1  cup fat-free milk (I used a packet of full-cream UHT milk)
* 1  egg, lightly beaten
* 2  tablespoons vegetable oil
* Aunt Jemima® syrup, warmed
(I omitted this)
* Banana slices (optional)
* Coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
(I omitted this)

What to Do?

* In medium bowl, combine banana slices and sugar; stir to coat slices with sugar. Set aside.
* In large bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
* In medium bowl, combine milk, egg and oil; blend well.
* Add to dry ingredients all at once; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not overmix.)
* Heat griddle over medium-high heat (or preheat electric skillet or griddle to 375°F). Lightly grease griddle.
* For each pancake, pour scant 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle.
* Top with four or five banana slices. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
* Serve with warm syrup and, if desired, additional banana slices and nuts.


Close up shot...


"A bit dry... could it be caused by the oats?"


"Not enough oats!" 

So there you go.... my attempt of making HEARTY BANANA OAT FLAPJACKS!
