Busy Mom? Then This Healthy Meal Delivery Is a Must Try

Chelsea Charles Tries Terra's Kitchen Meal Delivery Service Via Count Me Healthy

Recently I tried Terra’s Kitchen, a wholefood delivery service focused on bringing back the experience of homemade, family dinners. I had been wanting to try a meal service for a while, especially now I’m in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Some days the thought of going to the grocery store in the 100 degree Charlotte heat with my toddler, then both prepping and cooking dinner is beyond unpalatable. Terra’s Kitchen allows you to order fresh, pre-portioned, pre-chopped meals all designed…

Third Trimester Tips to Feeling Your Best When At Your Biggest

3rd Trimester Pregnancy Tips for looking your best at your biggest via Count Me Healthy

Looking back at pregnancy photos I remember thinking I was large when each was taken. Nope. I am LARGE now. Almost 35 weeks large and the baby is supposed to grow an entire inch this week! These last few weeks are exciting, scary and can mess with your emotions. Not only does your body seem foreign, but you may feel scattered with the anticipation of delivery looming. Plus you are out of the honeymoon stage of the 2nd trimester and…

Pregnancy Workout Tips & Essentials To Help Stay Toned All Trimesters

Yesterday I hit 30 weeks in my pregnancy and the temp outside in Charlotte, North Carolina hit a whopping 104 degrees.

Healthy Chocolate Chia Pudding

I don’t know what it is with me lately, but I have an overwhelming sweet tooth. Like an addict I have to sit on my hands not to reach into the clear, finger-print smudged cake dome that houses my son’s occasional treats like his chocolate, butter cream frosted birthday cupcakes or banana bread that I made so the sad, browning bananas wouldn’t go to waste. I recently pulled the Halloween candy out of the garage freezer because my chocolate cravings…

10 Helpful & Healthy Tips For Traveling Pregnant

10 Helpful & Healthy Tips for Traveling Pregnant

Today I’m 22 weeks pregnant and just landed in Baltimore–my 3 year old toddler, Camden, in tow. We are visiting my husband at his business headquarters and then driving to Philly to spend a few days with his family. I’ve traveled quite a bit during this pregnancy and even more during my last. Although hitting the road when expecting doesn’t involve the massive prep that traveling with an infant or toddler does (I’ve written on it here), it still requires…

Rainbow Coolers: The Perfect Summer Sip

Rainbow Coolers by Count Me Healthy

So 23 weeks pregnant today! I’m feeling large and in charge. Yesterday I hosted a birthday lunch at my house for a girlfriend who is also pregnant. Now normally a chilled Pinot Grigio is an automatic when having a summer lunch with a friend. Southern front porch = drink in hand. Instead I served Rainbow Coolers, a refreshingly light option for those looking to summer cocktail without the alcohol. They are also a healthy way to get in your fruit…
