Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook Happy Monday! Here's a little bit of zen to add to your day. I love origami, often not quite getting the folds just right, but still loving the intricacy of it. Here, origami intended to be unfolded. https://kottke.org/21/08/floating-micro-origami-that-magically-unfolds-in-water New recipe: Peanut butter + dates + chocolate chips, oh my! Here's a recipe for Peanut Butter bread filled with goodies (but yes, still low enough in sugar that you won't feel like THAT parent when you give it to your kiddos).
