I thought just eating organic was enough. And it is for many reasons, and for many people, but to reach my fitness goals AND keeping my blood sugar (aka insulin levels, aka fat storing hormones) in check, I have had to tweak my diet. I am constantly learning more about my body, and its needs,…… Continue reading Eat your Macronutrients… Protein Pancakes!
We. Love. Muffins. If you can’t tell by now… Paleo Pumpkin muffins, Chocolate Banana Chia Muffins, Apple cinnamon Muffins, to name a few, but I mean how can I not have a Paleo blueberry muffin recipe?! I grew up eating blueberry muffins quiet regularly, which was probably weekly. That was the one thing about my…… Continue reading Paleo Blueberry Muffins
These are just what we’ve been craving. They are made with whole ingredients, ZERO grains, and a ton of flavor. Once we went officially GF, my sons had been begging for me to make waffles. They really did love them, so I got busy! First I needed to shop for a non-toxic waffle iron. If…… Continue reading Crispy Paleo Waffles
This has got to be our favorite new breakfast. When you sauté kale, it doesn’t get soggy like spinach (although I really love sautéed spinach and eggs too!), it gets crispy and mixed with soft eggs make them the perfect combo! My latest obsession… pastured eggs! Why? Chickens roam free on green pastures, in…… Continue reading Cast Iron Skillet Crispy Kale and Eggs Recipe
(READ: MAKE YOUR OWN BABY FOOD PART ONE HERE) If you have ever taken a good look at store bought baby food you would notice that the colors are bland. They are lacking in color and vibrance.

They tasted so delicious and I felt that they got me into the Fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Spirit! They were special drinks offered only during this special time of the year, and it IS my FAVORITE time of…… Continue reading Homemade Coffee Creamer… For Your Perfect Holiday!
Jumping out of my comfort zone a bit and using my Instagram as blog post. I am a perfectionist by nature and I really like my photo’s to look perfect. Obviously there is no perfect. I would rather post valuable information than have THE BEST looking photo’s and not be as active as a blogger.…… Continue reading Are You Eating Enough Greens?
So many people skip breakfast! It’s so busy in the morning, especially if you have kids to get out of the house or work to get to! That is why I LOVE overnight oats! You make them the night before and you have breakfast ready to go first thing in the morning! They are easy…… Continue reading The Best Overnight Oats Recipes
Just today I was having a conversation with a friend about teaching our children the importance of real food, eating vegetables and whole foods and whether or not we should be hiding vegetables in food? That is the question. Why is it that so many of us have trouble getting our toddlers or kids to…… Continue reading Grain-Free Healthy Green Pancakes… For the Whole Family!
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. Why? Because it is so versatile. Sometimes we enjoy a savory Frittata, other times it is just fresh farm eggs, natural sausages, sautéed spinach, and toast. Sometimes it is a green smoothie or Shakeology with added fruit and greens. My boys lately are just loving Banana Pancakes topped with Fage…… Continue reading Moist and Delicious Strawberry Coconut Paleo Scones
