Paleo, Nutrient Dense Red Velvet Cupcakes

Paleo, Nutrient Dense Red Velvet Cupcakes

Sometimes A Girl Just Needs a Cupcake During the first trimester of my second pregnancy, I was craving sweets BAD! However, refined s0ugar reeks havoc on my stomach, and I know it is not good for my growing baby. So, typical me went to Pinterest and found the “best” red velvet cupcake out there to modify. I didn’t go for a pre-formulated paleo recipe because I find coconut flour and almond flour don’t work the best for cupcakes. I love…

Why You Should Never Use A Kids Menu

Why You Should Never Use A Kids Menu

More, More!?!?! That’s what Noah said directly to our waiter one evening as Brendon and I were out to dinner. We had gotten him a side of goat cheese polenta, and he scarfed it down. We laughed so hard when he knew to look right at the waiter and ask for more. I love that through exposing him to a variety of foods, he always tries food and is a great eater. There are of course foods he has tried…

Paleo Pancake Sausage Muffins

Paleo Pancake Sausage Muffins

Brinner Time! Mondays are breakfast for dinner. So, we did eggs with these cute pancake sausage muffins topped with some real maple syrup. Delicious and a kid hit! I made this recipe but substituted cassava flour and coconut sugar. I loved being able to make these on Sunday night as we were getting ready for the week. Then, I had very little work to do at dinner time on Monday. Have I mentioned how much I try not to actually…

Breakfast Bear Pancakes (paleo, gluten-free, refined sugar-free)

Breakfast can beĀ fun! Breakfast by far is my favorite meal of the day.

Both the kids love the cassava flour pancakes that I have made from the PaleoHacks blog. However, after making the recipe a few times, I modified it by adding some more honey and some vanilla. Kids are used to a slighter…

1st Trimester Must Haves for a Natural Pregnancy

1st Trimester Must Haves for a Natural Pregnancy

My Second Pregnancy This is my second pregnancy, and thankfully, I have felt less fatigued and barely sick! I think having a very nutrient dense diet before pregnancy was very important. I have been so thankful to be able to keep up with two kids (7 and almost 2) and train for a half marathon. Not everything has been easy, but it has definitely been physically incredibly easier than last time. My husband definitely picked up the slack taking care…

Healthy Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole (Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

Healthy Sloppy Joe Cornbread Casserole (Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free)

This Meal is a Kid Pleaser! In the early months of Brendon and my marriage, I had a mission to find new dishes that Brynn would eat. At the time, she really just ate mac and cheese, egg sandwiches, alfredo, and peanut butter. I am sure that in reality there were a few other things, but it felt really limited. I was frustrated with how picky she was. So, I went to Pinterest and set out to try new recipes…
