Here is another yummy AND healthy recipe. It is sure to be one your family will love. This recipe comes from The Veggie Queen, Jill Nussinow. I, personally, have a copy of her book, The Veggie Queen: Vegetables Get The Royal Treatment. It has over a 100 recipes divided into the 4 different seasons. The recipes are delightfully delicious and clever. This recipe not only looks festive, but it is also a crowd pleaser.
I made two substitutions though. I used coconut oil in place of canola oil (it is the only oil I cook with). In place of the flour, I ground up quinoa (I try to avoid gluten as often as possible). (more…)

Need a quick and delicious snack. Mrs. Owl has a great recipe for peanut butter treats. Mrs. Owl, also known as Arla Caraboolad, is the author of a fabulous children’s book, Tommy Tortoise Gets The Sugar Blues. In the book, Tommy learns about the effects of overindulging in sugar the hard way. This recipe, however, will not leave you with the sugar blues.
Although the recipe below uses carob chips or chocolate chips, I prefer to make my own chocolate (combine 2 tablespoons of melted cacao butter with 2 tablespoons of coconut nectar, and 2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder). (more…)

I have shared my morning smoothie recipe a million times and figured I should post it here for all to refer to …. and save me from typing it a million and two times LOL
Breakfast is such a vital meal and should always be taken seriously. Each day in my home, we start with a smoothie that has incredible nutritional value. You can always change things up (and I do depending what is in the house) and keep some variety going.
In the blender, I combine all of the following (I never measure… so, use your judgement). This recipe is for approximately 4 servings.: (more…)

Wow! Were you on the call? Shelley, the founder of One Roast Vegetable
, was not only a ton of fun to interview but, she provided us with a ton of ideas and tips. Here are just a few of them….
- Cooking at home is not only cost effective but, it allows you greater control over what you are eating (and what is in your food) and with a little practice, it even tastes better!
- Cooking at home does not have to be time consuming. With a little bit of planning, cooking at home can be quick, simple and easy
- Meal planning is critical to saving time and saving money on food. Look and see what you already have in your cupboards. Shop with a list rather than, buying what you see when shopping. Resist the “stocking up” mentality.
- Having basic cooking skills makes your food taste better and makes it easier to prepare vegetables as part of your meals.
- Would you allow your kids to ride in the car without their car seat? Veggies are just as important! It is vital that your kid eats sufficient amounts of veggies.
- Allow kids to take part in food preparation with you, make veggies fun, and add variety!
- Put up a weekly food menu for the kids and get them excited about the upcoming meals.
- Make it a rule to have a fruit or vegetable with every meal and snack.
- Put out a fruit and vegetable tray at 5:00pm when the kids are hungry but dinner is not ready yet.
Make sure you listen to the interview to hear Shelley’s wonderful recipe ideas!!
