Healthy Vanilla Pudding

Vanilla pudding is one of those all time classics. Everybody has had it and pretty much everyone loves it. It’s simple and tastes good! That is why I’m sharing this healthy vanilla pudding recipe with you! Store bought pudding is no where near being natural. Seriously! I thought the ingredients would be closer to the standard processed food list where there was some real food ingredients and some chemical, hard to pronounce stuff. Wrong!!! There is very little that is “real” in store bought pudding! Want to know what is in vanilla pudding? Sugar, dextrose, cornstarch, modified cornstarch, natural...

Now I am personally a fan...

Cheese Popcorn

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a popcorn fanatic. I love popcorn. In fact, I’ve been known to love it so much that I can easily eat it for an entire meal. Now I love good old fashion popcorn with butter and a bit of salt but sometimes I want something a bit different.   Have you ever had cheese popcorn? You know the kind that is artificial and generally bright orange although you can also find white cheddar now as well. There’s no denying that stuff is horrible for you; it’s packed full of fake ingredients...

Kale Chips

I’ve avoided the kale chip wagon for awhile now. I’ve seen the recipe passed around all my crunchy circles and yet I still didn’t bother to give it a try. I finally caved in and tried it out today!
