If you're trying to get more greens into your diet (aren't we all?), then I've got a recipe for you. I already LOVE baked potatoes, but mixing the filling together with a bunch of yummy good stuff and then putting it back in? Oh my, even better. Show More Summary
I recently started a weekly ritual that I know a lot of you would also love: Kids Cook Night. I'll share a little about how the process works for us as well as the intangible benefits that are a part of this activity. It's a win-win all around.
My girls recently went to a very active, outdoor all-day camp in some crazy southern heat. So I wanted to be sure I kept them fueled with plenty of wholesome food. Here's a little recap of what I packed for them each day
A friend was recently telling me how her brother is really into Blue Apron and has been trying to get her family to try it, but she hasn't wanted to spend the money. So it got me wondering - are recipe delivery services really any more expensive than going to the store and buying everything yourself?
By making your own homemade ketchup in the slow cooker you can control how much salt to add and skip the processed sugar altogether by using honey as the sweetener. This is a guest post by Melanie Zook, MA, RD, LDN.
It's hard to believe that Independence Day is almost upon us! And since most big holidays are all about the FOOD, I've got a bunch of real food recipe ideas for you today. The point here is that celebrations can still be fun even with real food as the focus.
Both of my daughters typically request yellow birthday cake over chocolate, which consistently leaves me wondering if there was a mix up at birth.
As I mentioned, both my older daughter and I were inspired by our recent 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge to try some new combinations and more importantly some new-to-us (in smoothies) ingredients. So today, I'm excited to introduce a Tropical Green Smoothie recipe made with some of our new favorites, including coconut water, peaches, and pineapple. Yum!
I'm excited to share a little more about the Green Smoothie Challenge we've been trying out for the past few weeks. This is a free challenge put together by my friends Jadah and Jen.
I've got the perfect cold treat for you that's super easy to make on a hot summer day (no oven required!). I saw a similar recipe in a magazine and loved how easy it looked, thinking about when we occasionally break our rules and enjoy a sugary homemade treat.
If your salads are getting a little predictable and boring I have the perfect Green Goddess dressing recipe for you to jazz things up! Plus since it's summertime you can get half the ingredients right out of your herb garden (or from your local farmers' market).
I've got a new really simple dinner recipe for you, but first let me share what sparked this idea. I was recently at an agricultural event where the farmers were talking about how everyone always goes for the pork chops, and they hoped people would branch out.
I personally started adopting the real food initiative a few years ago but recently, thanks to bugs in my organic food, I became aware of a shortfall on my part.
I have a super fun summer party idea for you...Backyard Movie Night with a DIY S'mores Bar!
This 1-day starter plan for a family of 4 "real food beginners" is a wonderful way to see how easy real food can be. I've included a free printable version as well!
This is a super easy one-dish meal that gets gobbled up quickly at my house. My younger daughter is rather picky about what veggies she'll eat, but she loves Brussels sprouts - go figure. So this is a go-to weeknight meal for us, and I love to sometimes pair it with wild rice on the side.
