Healthy Lunchbox 2012: Slowcooker Paleo Eggplant Parmesan

002

You’ve heard me (as well as other bloggers) talk about planned-overs and how they make for great lunches. Well, sometimes lunch needs to be a prequel. Sometimes a meal is just too good to wait until dinner… When cooked overnight in a crock and you have a thermos ready to help keep it warm… Well, let’s […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2012: Gluten-Free Gigi

back to school cookies

Have you met my friend, Gluten-Free Gigi? Gigi is a scientist turned health specialist and I simply adore and always learn so much from her “A Side of Science” series.  Gigi was one of the guest-bloggers for last year’s Healthy Lunchbox series where she shared a delicious chocolate chip mini-muffin recipe.  This year she made me […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2012: Peachy Coconut Streusel Muffins

001

When most people think of muffins, they think high-carb, grain-filled, low-nutritional value item. The last thing I want to feed my children is anything that meets that type of description. The great thing about grain-free cooking is that a majority of flours (nut, seed and coconut) are naturally high in fabulous fiber, protein and nutrients.  […]

Welcome to Healthy Lunchbox 2012! One year ago, I had an idea… Every year the struggle to fill my children’s lunchboxes with healthy foods they will enjoy seems to become a little more complicated.

Roasted Red Pepper Paleo Hummus

018

I must admit that, when giving up legumes, hummus was not high on my list of things I would miss. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good hummus. It’s just not one of those things that was on our regular shopping list.  In fact, previously, I might purchase hummus once a year and I might […]

Growing Up Isn’t So Bad, Peter Pan Squash Spiced Oven Fries

002

Today on FoodNetwork Summer Fest, food and garden bloggers are joining up to highlight the vibrant staple: Summer Squash. Oddly enough, the title “Summer Squash” has less to do with the time a squash is grown or harvested and more to do with the sustainability of a squash. You see, summer squash like zucchini, yellow […]

Plum Pickin’ Pineapple Jam

002

This time of the year our pantry and refrigerator is overloaded with all kinds of delicious produce. Most recently, with the help of Bountiful Baskets we have received an overabundance of fruits like cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and pineapples. So much so that even my large family cannot keep up. What’s a girl to do?  […]

Between the digestive issues my daughter has faced since she was a baby and my own celiac diagnosis, I have been somewhat obsessed with healing our guts for quite some time. For many years, I thought yogurt and liquid acidophilus were our only options.  It has not been until recently that I have learned the […]
