Carrot Cake Smoothie

Do you buy carrots like we do? We buy 10 pounds of carrots at a time and we go through them in just a few weeks. We could probably go through them much faster but my carrots would plan a mutiny against me if we ate them that often! Needless to say, I’m always trying to come up with new ways to make use of all these carrots. This, by the way is why most of my recipes on this blog have to do with carrots; carrot cake popsicles, sunshine carrots, carrot fries, sunshine carrot soup, carrot cake baked...

Probiotic Carrot Cake Popsicles

I’m one of those crazy moms who is always looking for more ways to get her kids to eat more veggies. My kids actually aren’t picky; they eat their veggies with usually no fuss…but that doesn’t stop me from trying to get veggies into every possible thing. Take popsicles for instance. Popsicles are not generally thought of as a healthy snack. You can make them yourself and those generally turn out healthy so long as you leave out the crazy amounts of sugar. I am fine with my kids having popsicles but I decided to take healthy popsicles one...

However, when I had to be dairy free while nursing my baby, I was introduced to cashew milk. I was in heaven the first time I tried it. Cashew milk opened up a huge world for me. I never...

Taco Meatballs – Grain Free

I’ve talked about how meatballs are one of my kids’ favorite protein sources for lunch. It’s so easy to make meatballs in large amounts and then freeze them for later. We try to stay low-grain in our household and most meatballs have grains in one form or another. I created my deliciously simple meatballs that have no grains in them and we make them all the time. And therein lies the problem. We make them so often that the kids got bored of them! However, meatballs are such a versatile food. You can dress them up in a hundred...

Real Food Saint Patrick’s Day Recipes

I’ve always had a soft spot for Saint Patrick’s Day. We never really went crazy with celebrating it outside of one year when my great-grandma went all out and cooked a bunch of Irish food but since I’ve got Irish heritage, I always felt like I was a part of history when Saint Patrick’s Day came around. I want to pass that on to my children a bit. Of course, there’s hundreds of recipes out there that you can make to celebrate March 17th but not all of them are very healthy. Just the amount of green dye that...
