Today I’m sharing my dairy-free, sugar-free coffee creamer that is flavored with pumpkin spice!Read More
Hello! I haven't popped on here all month. Which at first didn't feel like that long... but when I looked at my calendar, I couldn't believe it's pretty much the middle of July! How does time fly so fast?Read More
I have a confession. Feeding my baby so far in her 9 months of life has come with its own set of mom guilt and anxiety.
Don't get me wrong. I love food, think about food nonstop, and I'm so excited for our little eater to experience really great good. But, ever since Dylan was a newborn, I've always been worried about doing it the right way…Read More
I talk a lot on my blog about how a meal is so much a part of one's life. Without it, conversations would be lost. Memories forgotten. Because one dish can take you back in time. That meal may have a story.Read More
We are just starting to feed Dylan solid foods. It's baby steps. Started with avocado for a few days, then sweet potato, and now just tried squash. She makes a confused look at her first bite of a new food. Like, so confused. Even cringes. But then eats it up with excitement...Read More
Love is in the air this month. And so is chocolate.
Even when I was single, I just loved Valentine's Day. I think the heart-shaped candy and pink and red M&M;s had something to do with this. But, for everyone, Valentine's Day is a day (or month!) to celebrate love and appreciation of your friends and family. How lucky we each are to have these people in our lives!Read More
My smoothie bowl kicks go in spurts. I'll make them non-stop for a while, and then I won't make a single one for months. For no reason, really. The smoothie droughts are just a change of scenery in my daily food journey.
Well, you could say that right now I'm on a kick. I can't get enough big, bright, cold bowls that taste so good. It's my version of a cold soup.
So today I'm sharing a current favorite of mine - mixed berry.,,Read More
Ahhh it's almost the weekend. Which I always associate with lingering breakfast, extra coffee and just relaxing. And it usually involves a grain-free pancake.
So in honor of the weekend that is juuuust about here. And in an effort get my mind off the craziness and changes that are happening in politics, I'm sharing these pancakes. Because blueberry pancakes make me happy, no matter what.Read More
Happy New Year!
I love the start of the new year. More so because of all the inspiration to eat clean and move more. Now, I'm not talking about resolutions that last one month and die... I'm talking about an overall look at what we are doing in our daily lives and we either continue doing it, or we tweak it a bit to make our bodies feel better.
In the spirit of clean, I've been making my go-to green smoothie bowl with breakfast.
I've shared many versions of this smoothie on my blog. But, I can't think of a better recipe post to start off this new year!Read More
Countless times I find myself grabbing a carton of non-dairy milk at the store, only to place it back at soon as I glance at the huge ingredient list, consisting mostly of additives and sugars.
(Side note: there are a few completely natural brands out there - such as New Barn - that fit the bill if I'm buying it!)
No fear... this milk saves the day! Totally natural and totallyRead More
Ahhh my mind is a bit scattered. Anxiety at an all-time high. I'm assuming it's the usual election anxiousness, but it feels all too strong this year.
To ease my mind and my nerves, I walk, I work out, I do yoga... I keep my body moving and my head clear. And I'm going to write about these waffles.
Because they remind me of my favorite time: Sunday mornings.Read More
Someone asked me the other day how I find the time to blog. Am I baking cookies and granola in the early mornings before work? No, I am not superwoman.
Although that does sound relaxing...Read More
It's apple season! Which means we've been picking a looot of apples. And drinking a looot of apple cider.
Chad is a simple syrup guy. Always making different kinds - ginger, peach, blueberry, lavender - you name it. And recently he made an apple cider simple syrup.
He simply cooked down apple cider with orange peels. That's it! And that's brilliant...
Concentrated apple cider goodness.Read More
Happy hump day!
We are halfway through the week. One day closer to the weekend. And for me, one day closer to these pancakes...
It's becoming a tradition of sorts. On Sundays, it's a long run followed by coffee and brunch. And just about every Sunday, I've been making these pancakes.Read More
