Eat Your Peas

Despite a harsh winter on the East Coast, where I’m from, spring has finally prevailed. That means it is gardening time!

While the weather is still mostly cool, it is a great time to get in those cool hardy veg like spinach, broccoli, cabbage and peas. They can handle the cool nights and thrive in the gentle spring sun. […]

Ice Cream for Breakfast

I LOOOOOVE ice cream. It’s one of my favorite desserts. I really love gelato and fruity types, so I have been dying to try this “breakfast ice cream”. Of course, I didn’t make mine for breakfast. I made it for dessert!! You can let your kids have it for breakfast EVERY morning and they will think they have the best mom ever. […]

My Go To Nourishing Meal

We caught an upper respiratory virus that really kicked our butts this weekend. My husband and I usually escape most colds with just a sniffle, but not this time. I find one of the hardest parts about being sick is making meals for the family. At the same time, I worry about making sure we all eat well. […]

I recently got my tax return and I have been going over in my mind on what I want to spend it.  I keep going back and forth, taking things off the list and adding them back on.  One of the things that has jumped on and off of my list several times is an Excalibur Dehydrator. […]

I let my kids drink soda every day

Any time of day, even right before bed (but before brushing) if any of my 3 little ones ask for a carbonated beverage, I gladly let them have a full glass. Our “soda” doesn’t come in a can and it is actually a healthy drink! What am I talking about?

Water kefir! […]

Magic Chocolate Bananas

Despite the fact that I try to limit my children’s exposure to junk foods, we still struggle with my oldest to eat healthy. Even fruit can be a struggle some weeks with him. Right now, as we are in between fruit seasons (apples are kinds mushy and summer fruits are too pricey), bananas are one of the few decent and cheap fruits. […]

Sunella (Nut-free Nutella)

This is actually an adapted recipe from Momables, but since they used coconut, it isn’t entirely allergy-free to all who are allergic to nuts. Although considered a fruit, coconuts are still considered tree nuts when it comes to allergies. I first posted it on my blog, but I’m updating it slightly. […]
