We don't have it EVERY Sunday, but it is definitely one you will most likely smell if joining my family for dinner. The only thing that I do different than my mom, is make mine in an instant pot.

Healthier Chocolate Cake (Best Ever!)

March 8th, 2017|0 Comments

[recipe] 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  ingredients. I decided this was the perfect opportunity! For the first cake, I followed the recipe exactly. For the second cake I swapped out a few processed ingredients with unrefined versions/much less processed ingredients. The results? NOBODY COULD TASTE THE DIFFERENCE! Shoot...if nobody can taste the difference, then we can all be swapping out these ingredients with healthier ones in many [...]

Traditional Bean Chili

February 3rd, 2017|0 Comments

[recipe] Everyone needs a good chili recipe, and we must be nothing short of original because we like our chili simple and traditional. And, this recipe comes from a lot of cans which is great for making quick dinner prep or taking to a Super Bowl party. A couple of things I'd like to share about the ingredients in this recipe: It only has 1/2 the amount of meat that a traditional chili recipe would use. This is totally intentional as meat should never be the focus of a meal. Instead, the focus should always [...]

No Bake Cookies (with honey)

February 2nd, 2017|0 Comments

[recipe] I grew up in a home that had no bake cookies a couple of times a month! So, as you can imagine, I crave that flavor periodically and it totally brings me back. This is quite a sweet dessert and isn't for everyone, but was something I didn't want to give up. Because you know that whole thing about me and peanut butter....<3 But here's the thing about these cookies...

Cherry Pineapple Smoothie

February 2nd, 2017|2 Comments

[recipe] This smoothie reminds me of a pineapple upside-down cake that has cherries on top. So delicious and so rich in antioxidants. The antioxidants in cherries protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.

The best source of antioxidants are always fruits and vegetables. So, if you want to look young for as long as possible, eat lots of fruits and veggies. No surprise, right? Let me know how you like this [...]

[recipe] Back in the day, when I first started learning about eating healthy for the sake of my daughter Katie's health, I had omitted milkshakes... for years! Gahhh! Then, one day it dawned on me how my kids were growing up not knowing what a milkshake was. What kind of mother was I?! 🙂 Milkshakes were a big part of my childhood and should be for everyone IMO. I soon realized how we could still have most of the delicious meals and treats we'd had before. I simply needed to swap out ingredients with healthier ones. [...]

Homemade Creamy Ranch Dressing and Dip

January 5th, 2017|0 Comments

[recipe] If wanting to eat real food as the majority or all of your diet, ditching processed salad dressings and dips can be hard! They are full of ingredients that make us want more and more....ingeniously designed, right!? But, the problem is that they quickly turn something healthy into junk food with all their artificial ingredients, added sugars, MSG, artificial colors, and more. I have a son who LOVES ranch dressing and will only eat certain vegetables with this dip. Yup, he's my picky one. (Sometimes I wonder if it's because he started the first [...]

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

December 20th, 2016|0 Comments

[recipe] While this isn't the most nutritious meal, I want to point out, there is a big difference between refined, highly processed pancakes and pancakes made with whole grain real ingredients. When we eat food made with whole-real food ingredients, we are giving our body the nutrients, vitamins, and fiber that it needs to work and function well. For a lot of recipes, this simply means pulling the refined white sugar and replacing it with an unrefined sugar (like coconut sugar or honey) or white flour to a whole grain flour. I loved how [...]
