Nut Butter Protein Power Balls

In our house, something is always being created: a craft project, imaginative play, a dance party, and lots of cooking and baking. We are not the best recipe followers, and the kids love to taste the batter, so making “freezer cookies” (aka Power Balls) are one of our go-to ways to pass the “witching hour” (4:30-5:30pm) or early morning hours before school. Olivia and Cullen can scoop, pour, mix, shake in whatever ingredients we have at home until the consistency […]

Yes, you heard right: just two whole food ingredients. We can’t get over how simple and healthy these are. Protein, fiber, potassium, nutrient rich powerhouse of a breakfast with no grains! We are huge pancake fans and typically have them once a weekend. It’s my husbands “specialty”.

Anti-Inflammatory Banana Muffins

I love to cook, but I am not a baker. I experiment in the kitchen, making concoctions and adding in a little of this and some of that, an avid recipe reader, but not a very good recipe follower. So, baking, which is more of a science than an art, is not really my forte. So, when Olivia’s first birthday approached and I knew I wanted to make her a healthy Smash Cake, I got a little anxious. How would I make […]

Mediterranean Style Egg Frittata

Eggs, glorious eggs! We eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. Eggs are pretty much the perfect food (unless you have an intolerance, of course). Each perfectly packaged egg contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of heart healthy fats, generous amounts of B vitamins, folate, selenium, vitamins A, D, E and K and calcium and zinc. Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, a nutrient critical for brain growth and function. So eat up! These eggy […]

Breakfast Bars: A New Family Favorite

It was January 1st and I resolved to use up some of the superfoods stored in my pantry. I walked in to face bags of chia, hemp, flax, seeds, cacao and more. A Holistic Health Coach’s playground! But how to use them all in a delicious, easy, family friendly way? And then it hit me: Breakfast Bars! I took all of the superfoods out of my pantry, spread them out on the counter and grabbed a large mixing bowl, measuring […]

Recipe: Cookies You Can Feel Good About Eating!

My nieces live across the street from me and stop by often, which I love! They are 9 and 7 and full of energy and laughter. They frequently ask if we can bake something together. Something delicious, easy enough for them to help make and healthy! Yes, healthy! These requests are always spontaneous, so we have to work with whatever is stocked in my pantry and fridge. And of course, our creativity. This morning we made our second version of healthy […]

Zucchini Blueberry and Chocolate Protein Muffins

Get your fruits, veggies, protein and antioxidants all in one delicious gluten-free and vegan muffin! Great for a healthy snack, breakfast or dessert. Who knew zucchini with chocolate could taste good? We got our weekly Our Harvest (www.ourharvest.com) farm fresh delivery and were in awe of the beautiful local yellow zucchini and fresh blueberries. Delivery arrived at 7 pm and we just had dinner, but wanted a healthy bite that the kids (and us!) would enjoy. So, we came up […]
