Paleo Chicken Zoodle Stir Fry

With summer coming to a close, I’m trying to enjoy as many summer season fruits and vegetables that I can. The best time to enjoy zucchini is almost over, so I loved seeing Heidi feature it yesterday as her food of the month. With the vegetable being super nutritious and versatile, I wanted to feature […]

Food of the Month: Zucchini

One of my favorite veggies is the zucchini because it is not only yummy but it versatile. Raw, baked, broiled, steamed, and can even be added to desserts!

While I could eat guacamole almost everyday, I decided to find a way to use it with Heidi’s grain […]

Manners & Your toddler

As Bean is getting ready to leave the terrible twos and quickly start the traumatic threes she isn’t always the most polite person I know. In fact sometimes she tends to act almost like a cave-person grabbing anything within reach and grunting or squealing as she takes off with it. Occasionally though when she says, […]

Homemade Almond Milk

Non-dairy milks are all the rage right now. While I’m pretty partial to a couple of them because I don’t eat dairy (very often) due to being paleo and all, I’ve always worried about the added sugars and mystery ingredients in them. Heidi did a great job yesterday going over all the pros and cons […]
