Healthy Lunchbox 2016, Week 1: Healthy Snacks

Is it just me or does every summer seem to go a little faster?   Maybe it’s the fact that my family effectively made 3 moves this year…two of those MAJOR moves.  Maybe it’s the fact that my two oldest only have two more years before they are off on missions or college, meaning we […]

Homemade Sauerkraut

  About a week ago, I shared a very, very simple recipe on Facebook with the promise of getting it up quickly!   Thank you so very much to the many positive responses I got on there, and please forgive me for the delay! I don’t know about you, but summertime days just fly by […]

Homemade Yerba Mate Kombucha

There are many claims about the benefits of drinking kombucha tea.  From supporting liver detoxification to pancreas function, improved energy, digestive support, improved mood, supporting positive gut balance, aiding in nutrient assimilation and even metabolic support;  kombucha is touted as the ‘miracle drink’ in many corners of the world.  So as someone who has spent […]

Oven Roasted, Herbed Prime Rib of Pork

  It is fairly rare that I come across something I feel I should have known about (food wise) and yet have never tried… Recently I was gifted a nice rack of Prime Rib of Pork.  While I have enjoyed and roasted many Prime Ribs in my day, Prime Rib of Pork was something I […]

Fresh Watermelon, Cucumber and Tomato Salad

My husband […]

St. Patrick’s Day Deliciousness!

Cead mile failte!  It’s no secret that I love St. Patrick’s day.  Any excuse to wear green, the perfect compliment to my Irish red hair, right? 😉  But what I also love is the food!  St. Patrick’s Day staples in our home include: Irish Soda Bread , which I usually make two loaves of; one the more […]

Lightly Salted, Cinnamon Broiled Grapefruit

Sometimes my most difficult struggle with keeping this page up to date with fresh ideas isn’t in what I am eating, it’s realizing the value behind the simple things we do eat. Over the last couple of months I have been running a Facebook group dedicated to healthy, whole-food eating.  Over there I am sharing […]

Paleo Chicken Parmesan

Life, as we all know, can sometimes become so overwhelming. That doesn’t always mean bad or negative things are happening…it just simply means our plate is overflowing. Mine has been overflowing for quite some time, hence the lack of sharing here! Recently though, I’ve begun to realize that most of my overflow is self inflicted.  […]

AIP Basil Pesto (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free)

There are few things more delectable than a rich, savory, creamy sauce like pesto. That is, unless you are allergic to some of the most vital ingredients normally found in this simple sauce. While my family often enjoys my Vegan Pesto with Kale, recently a friend asked me if I had ever attempted to make […]
