Monthly Meal Prep for Our Family of 4-5

Monthly Meal Prep for Our Family of 4-5

How Can I Feed My Family? This is a question I ask myself a lot. It comes with other questions like “What can I feed my family that is healthy?” or “What are the meals my family will actually eat?” or “What do I have time to make that is easy?”. This also comes along with budget and cost of meals too. This question became even more daunting for me as my son Noah turned 2, and we found out…

I love that this recipe is easy to make and has great ingredients. I love that this recipe is gluten-free and refined sugar-free. I don’t feel bad about indulging one bit!

Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving Leftovers

What do you do with all that turkey? Sometimes it is hard to get creative with using up all of your Thanksgiving leftovers, and kids (and adults) don’t always want to eat all that turkey and mashed potatoes in the same way for the next week. Plus, it would be nice to have some lighter options that are easy to throw together, right? That’s what I thought. So, I gathered up two ideas for some gluten-free, refined sugar-free, egg-free sandwiches…

Happy, Healthy Holidays! The holidays are already stressful enough. So, if you are trying to eat healthy or cater to food sensitivities that can only add to the work.

Tomato Soup and Gluten-Free Bacon Grilled Cheese

Tomato Soup and Gluten-Free Bacon Grilled Cheese

Cheap, Easy Weeknight Meal I have been loving the idea of soup and sandwiches with the fall weather cooling down. However, I wanted something easy to make that I could still control the ingredients. So, I found a great recipe for a copycat version of Panera tomato soup, and I modified some of the ingredients. Then, I put a fun spin on the classic grilled cheese and purchased ingredients I felt comfortable with. Even with grass-fed, gluten-free, and organic ingredients,…

This recipe will please even the pickiest eater with the creamy, cheesy taste mixed with the taco flavors! It is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and egg-free.

5 Weeknight Meal Plan

5 Weeknight Meal Plan

Make a Plan! How many of us struggle to have enough time to cook? I know I do, and I love to cook. But, honestly, I want to spend the least amount of time cooking that I can because I have a lot of other things I want to do, and there are only 24 hours in a day. Plus, dinner time is probably the worst time to try and cook, especially if you are coming home from work and have…
