Homemade Hot Chocolate

December 14th, 2016|

Everyone needs a homemade hot chocolate recipe because the store-bought powder and syrup is all-out junk. For the longest time we just didn't make hot chocolate or chocolate milk because I really didn't like the store-bought stuff. Maybe you've felt the same...Now you can make your own and stop buying the processed food items for this. Yay! [...]

50 Candy Free Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Your Whole Family

December 13th, 2016|

If you're like me, stocking stuffers are one of the last things I think about when it comes to preparing for Christmas. There are a million other things we "should" be doing and this one just seems to get left behind until the very end. I know for us, we've had so many [...]

Black Bean Lentil Soup

December 5th, 2016|

  The recipe-credit goes to the kind man who brought this soup for a pot luck at my husband's work. Mr. Clark said this soup was too de-lish to not snatch the recipe and he was totally right! :P So, here are my two cents on this soup... It's super filling. Guys, beans/lentils are so [...]

5 “Healthy” Foods that are Loaded with Sugar

December 5th, 2016|

I never want to call people out on what they're eating. I purely love to share what I've learned because it's been so eye opening to me and how food effects the way you feel. I feel confident it will be for you too (if not already) as you learn more about highly processed foods [...]

November 1st, 2016|

Shop only at Health-Food Grocery Stores. Just kidding...I am not that girl. While I really like health-food stores, it's not always budget friendly or convenient. I spend most of my shopping at mainstream grocery stores and have picked up a few great tips along the way to make shopping for the healthy stuff easier. It's [...]

Creamy Chocolate Fudge Popsicles

October 21st, 2016|

  If you're ever struggling to get your kids to eat real food desserts that aren't highly processed, popsicles are a great place to start! All you have to say is, "Do you want to make popsicles?" and you can see the wheels turning in their head. As if, you'd just read their mind because they've [...]

Real Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

October 21st, 2016|

  Nothing feels like Fall more than eating apples, pumpkin, and cinnamon. One of our favorite ways to make ice cream is by blending up frozen bananas with mix-ins and added toppings. The first time I ever made this was in my Yonana's Ice Cream Maker. It did an outstanding job, but other appliances will [...]

5 Minute Cookie Dough Bites

October 21st, 2016|

  In a previous life of mine, I would eat loads of raw cookie dough. Definitely, not something to be proud of. I am a recovered cookie dough addict and would much rather have something made with real food ingredients because of the way it makes me feel. And that's when we discovered 5 Minute [...]

Healthy Apple Cranberry Salad

September 29th, 2016|

  Want to get your kids eating more salads? Or heck. Do you?... Include ingredients they LOVE and you'll watch them devour a salad no problem! It took me awhile to figure this out, as I would continue fixing salads and combinations that just all-out didn't work! We would eat it, but only so we [...]

Vegetable Lasagna

September 21st, 2016|

  Here is our family's version of lasagna that dares to compete with traditional recipes. Traditional recipes are basically a meat, cheese, and noodles meal, while this one includes subtle-flavored vegetables that my kids will devour, even when they are very used to the "traditional" recipes (grandma makes killer lasagna). This is also a meatless [...]

  These Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini Muffins are moist, delicious, and made with real food ingredients. And let me tell you...I think my kids have had them every day after school this week. :O Three tips for this recipe: 1.) Shred up the zucchini in a food processor so the kids won't be weirded out by having a [...]

7 Kid’s Lunch Box Must-Haves!

September 2nd, 2016|

  One of the best ways to get kids eating more real food is to make it colorful, creative, and fun. This draws their attention to want to eat their lunch and causes a similar affect on the brain to how they respond to the fun packaging of highly processed foods. It just looks fun! However, I don't have time to cut out cute shapes [...]

Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies: Gluten-Free

September 2nd, 2016|

Have you ever noticed how healthy eaters are perceived by many not-so-healthy eaters as people who only eat salads and boring, flavorless food? If that's you, you've got it all wrong! These Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies are a great example of how you can still enjoy treats, but be cautious about the ingredients put in your [...]

Healthy Hawaiian Haystacks

September 1st, 2016|

One of the most processed food items in the store is cream of chicken soup! And you'll find that most Hawaiian Haystack recipes contain this ingredient. I don't know about you, but my health can't afford to eat this way, and really I don't think anyone's can! So let me give you a healthier option...that's [...]
