I've got a fun summer kitchen project for you that might just get your kids to try some new veggies! Not only are these Veggie Spring Rolls fun to make, but you'll end up eating the entire rainbow in one meal.
We are definitely fans of seafood at our house, but we try to be careful about where we get it from. Today I'm excited to share with you a seafood source that has been a long-time sponsor of ours since they follow these ideals and more, Alaska Gold Brand.
If you’re trying to cut processed food out of your diet, two of the most common challenges are drinks and condiments. Fortunately, people have been using fermentation to make delicious drinks, such as kombucha, and much more since before recorded history.
I'm super excited to announce that we're going to once again offer you our Real Lunches, Real Easy School Lunch Meal Plans!
When it comes to cutting out processed food, one of the toughest areas to navigate is bread. Today I want to discuss another option that is "sprouting" up in many stores these days (pun intended, haha): sprouted grains.
These Green Curry Fish Packets are such an easy, mess-free summer meal! Get ready to impress your dinner guests with this one. They'll never guess how easy it was to make.
These loaded black bean burgers are packed with veggies, fiber, and southwestern flavor. They're kid-friendly and freezer-friendly too!
Dried spices can be somewhat of an investment, but having a decent variety on hand can be your arsenal for some good made-from-scratch real food cooking. So whether you're looking to beef up your collection or just get started all together, I'm sharing the spices I use the most and why.
Here is a quick and simple recipe for strawberry and coconut cream pops that take advantage of seasonal fresh berries and help you cool off all in one.
I hope you'll find the following real food budget meals helpful and easy on the wallet. Each can feed a family of four, and each is $15 or under (with two notes, since we use some of the food twice during the week).
I love to grow and eat fresh herbs but never even considered adding them to a green salad for some extra flavor. So (now that I know better!), I added some thyme to this Spinach Salad recipe below, and it was a fabulous addition.
Over the years, I've enjoyed a number of pepper jellies, but I've always bemoaned the amount of sugar necessary for their creation. This version uses honey in place of refined sugar and is satisfyingly sweet without being cloying.
If there is something you REALLY want to do in your life, it will somehow get done. I've seen this played out many times before and was excited to recently see this phenomenon very clearly put into words.
We know that healthy eating can be a challenge on the road, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years, it's that you don’t have to completely abandon your healthy habits when you travel. For us, that means finding ways to include green smoothies in our travel plans.
To make my time in the kitchen as efficient as possible and to also be able to multitask when I'm in there (i.e., throw a batch of breakfast granola in the oven while I'm prepping dinner), I've found having the right kitchen tools - and enough of them - is key.
I've learned a lot about what works and what doesn't when it comes to making changes on kids' sports teams. Here's my best advice so you can do the same.
These Pork and Peach Kabobs turned out to be a huge hit, and, even if peaches aren't yet available where you live, this simple teriyaki glaze would be fabulous just on the pork or almost anything else you want to throw on the grill.
Tacos are a big favorite at my house, so I love it when I can cut the meat with a can of beans and make it last longer. But what's better (I've learned) is adding in some mushrooms in addition to the beans to stretch things even further.
This Breadcrumb Roasted Chicken dish is fabulous right out of the oven, but it's also pretty tasty leftover on salad greens or over pasta with a cream sauce. The topping adds so much good flavor, not to mention it takes all of 30 seconds to mix it together and spread it on top.
I am so excited to share a big, fun announcement today. The cover of my next cookbook has just been finalized, and HERE it is! Woohoo
