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 […]

Fresh Watermelon, Cucumber and Tomato Salad

My husband […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. I love the combination of cilantro and lime in cauliflower rice, on my paleo tacos and more… So when I had several heads of cabbage needing to […]
