OnGuard Apples

  So, I have this really great, Halloween type recipe to share with you… But a really important component of this recipe is these OnGuard apples.  And I thought I had already shared these on here, but it turns out I have shared them on Facebook, but not here!

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 […]

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 […]

What We Eat: Mexican Coleslaw with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

There is just something about the combination of cilantro and lime that makes me happy. My cilantro-lime ranch vegetable dip is made and enjoyed weekly in our home.

Cilantro and Lime Ranch Vegetable Dip (Dairy-free, Paleo, Vegan alternatives noted)

This dip is a twist on my Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing. A little less coconut cream and a few drops of essential oil make a world of difference in flavor and texture. This mix goes together quickly and has fast become our favorite dipping sauce for veggies, topping for taco salads and more. To keep […]
