5 Low Sugar, Whole Grain Cereal Ideas

June 16th, 2017|

I loved cereal as a kid and would've been just fine with eating it for every meal...because after all, "Frosted Lucky Charms, they're magically delicious!". My favorite was Lucky Charms, because who wouldn't drool over having marshmallows in their cereal or frosted puffs? But, what makes them so delicious? And why could I eat 3-4 [...]

Instant Pot Hamburger Veggie Soup

June 5th, 2017|

I LOVE this recipe! The fact that it only cooks for 4 minutes is a dream come true when it comes to cooking dinner. Granted, the sauteing, warm-up, and pressure release takes the time up to about 20 minutes. But, still is a super fast dinner and makes my life easier. There are lots of [...]

Strawberry Mango Salad (with mango yogurt dressing)

May 10th, 2017|

I recently returned from a trip to Utah, where I ate at one of my favorite restaurants in the Salt Lake Valley, Zupas! They have a salad on their menu I ordered a couple of times while visiting! It is a strawberry mango salad with a mango yogurt dressing. I've never had a yogurt type [...]

Instant Pot Perfect Beef Stew

May 9th, 2017|

We are weekly church go-ers and have been my entire life. Same church, same religion no matter where I've lived...I guess you can say it's a pretty big part of who I am. From a young age, having a beef stew after church became a tradition that I've continued with my own family. We don't [...]

How to Cook Beans in the Instant Pot (No Soaking Required!)

April 30th, 2017|

  We have been eating more and more beans in our diet over the last few years, and it is taking a toll on our grocery bill buying them canned! They are at least $1/can for 15 oz (roughly under 2 cups)! This adds up quickly. After getting an Instant Pot for Christmas in 2016, I've [...]

5 Things I Wish I’d Known About Sugar

April 24th, 2017|

  While visiting family, I shared a delicious pancake syrup recipe that contains maple syrup. Upon placing the syrup on the table, it was said that the syrup was "sugar-free". Totally perplexed, I responded that it wasn't because it contained maple syrup and I didn't want to lead others into thinking it was sugar-free. Sure [...]

My Favorite Healthier Fast Food Restaurant Items

March 28th, 2017|

Do you have a favorite fast food restaurant that calls your name morning and night?! There is a reason we feel such a strong pull toward them. Their ingredients and food items have been designed to do just that! I used to LOVE Taco Bell and could eat their soft tacos at any time of the day. They [...]

Delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

March 28th, 2017|

  Like I've said before, I have a weird obsession with anything that has peanut butter in it. Oatmeal is a close second. SO...you can expect to see lots of recipes with it because it's just what we prefer around here. :) We had these for the first time last week, made by the lovely [...]

Healthier Chocolate Cake (Best Ever!)

March 8th, 2017|

  A few weekends ago we had friends over for dessert. I'd been wanting to do a side-by-side comparison: Chocolate cake recipe using highly processed ingredients VS. Same chocolate cake recipe but with unrefined versions of the same ingredients. I decided this was the perfect opportunity! For the first cake, I followed the recipe exactly. [...]

Homemade Whipping Cream

March 8th, 2017|

  Why didn't I know about homemade whipping cream until I was an adult?! There is a night and day difference from store-bought whipping cream and homemade! It tastes so much better and has better ingredients than the highly processed containers or bottles you can buy at the store. Though it takes about 5 minutes [...]

How to Pick Healthy Eggs for Your Family

February 27th, 2017|

  Over the last couple of years I've learned that not all eggs are equal. I've done some side by side comparisons and research and there are some striking differences...specifically between factory-farmed eggs (mass production of eggs within a warehouse) and pasture-raised eggs (birds that spend their days out in fresh pastures). I'm going to [...]

Chocolate Almond Brownie Bites

February 15th, 2017|

  For Valentine's Day, I made my daughter a plate full of treats for her class party, since she is unable to eat the processed party food provided. Because she is currently on a special diet to restore her gut health, the desserts made needed to be dairy-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar free, and delicious, of course. I [...]
