• Super Seedy Overnight Oats

    Oh overnight oats, you are so miraculous in the morning! I am always lazy about putting them together the night before but so grateful that I have done it when I am rushed the next day! Normally I will do a little assembly line of these and make them for everyone for a few days. Such an easy breakfast! I have tried lots of variations of overnight oats and I love the extra nutritional boost from the flax and chia here. I’ve made these dairy free but feel free to use your favorite milk here! Ingredients 1/2 cup rolled gluten free oats 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 1 teaspoon to…

  • Grain Free Apple Cider Donuts

    As we continued on our grain free adventure, the kids NEEDED a breakfast treat. Enter the amazing Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour. Everything I have made with it has been A+. We have been making awesome pancakes; actually this batter doubles as a pancake batter and has become a staple around here on the weekends, but donuts were really the request. So off I went to buy a donut pan and create a breakfast treat! Apple cider donuts are always a favorite in the Fall and I had some cider in my fridge… see what happened there? The kids LOVED helping with these, especially the sprinkling of the cinnamon sugar…

  • Breakfast Bowls (for breakfast, lunch or dinner!)

    This perfectly balanced bowl came together with the goods I had last week from Mike’s Organic Delivery (if you are local use my code AMH10 to get 10% off your order!). Vegetable, protein, carb (if you want it) and healthy fat. What is not to love? The best part about these bowls is they are really flexible and can work with whatever is fresh at your market that week. Easy to swap spinach for kale (or even broccoli), goat cheese for cheddar and so on. Also I tend to make the components ahead of time and throw it all together at dinner time to keep it super easy- especially those rushed…

  • Cinnamon “Latte”

    I quit coffee. Really. Over a year ago now, and I used to drink two cups (if not more a day). I don’t miss it but I do miss a latte with that froth sometimes. So this is my cinnamon “latte” that I have been loving in the mornings. Made with my favorite Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset tea with added protein and fat it keeps me from feeling starved during the morning rush. Bonus for some that it’s dairy free too! It’s my version of the ever talked about Bulletproof coffee… Bulletproof tea! I happen to love Brain Octane, I think it makes me more focused during the…

  • Steel Cut Oats in the Instant Pot

    I have received several requests for how I make steel cut oats in the Instant Pot, so here you go! This method stems from Melissa Clark’s recipe in her (AMAZING) cookbook, Dinner In An Instant. Super simple, hearty and delicious. They are perfectly creamy without the addition of milk, great for those of you who are dairy free. I always make a large batch and reheat them all week long.  If you do not have an Instant Pot yet, I love this one. And here is my review of why I think it is just so fantastic. Ingredients 1 Tablespoon coconut oil, ghee or butter if not dairy free 1…

  • Thrive Market Review

    Who out there has tried Thrive Market yet? I swear I signed up for an account over a year ago and never ordered. Something about membership fees always gets me. Yes, it is like Costco, but I always hesitate. I did the same thing with Beachbody. I waited forever and we all know how that turned out. So, my advice to you is DO IT. Don’t wait like I did. I think it may just be the best online source out there for natural and organic products! My first box arrived this weekend and it was packed perfectly. Glass jars intact, delicate pasta noodles still perfectly whole in their box,…

  • Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

    Muffins. I grew up eating muffins every weekend. My dad would make the best muffins (out of a box, my favorite were the Duncan Hines Deluxe Blueberry Muffin… which they still make a version of, but sadly I can no longer eat! ).  We would enjoy them with eggs and bacon; it was the highlight of the weekend. So, it comes as no surprise that my kids love muffins too. I find that they are great weekday breakfast paired with fruit and yogurt if you make them with simple healthful ingredients. We can save the super fun treats for the weekends like my parents did. These also freeze well so you can…

  • Raspberry Compote

    Raspberry Compote is the perfect topping for homemade yogurt. Or ice cream… or toast… or pound cake… or over goat cheese… or swirled into pancake batter. See where I am going here? It takes anything and elevates it; perfect for entertaining or just making Sunday morning breakfast a little more exciting! Bright, slightly sweet and so easy to make; this is a great recipe to have in your repertoire! Raspberry Compote 12 oz of raspberries (2 small containers or one of those big long ones) 1-3 Tablespoons of real maple syrup (all dependant oh how sweet you like it, if it was just for me I would do a heaping…

  • Homemade Yogurt in the Instant Pot

    Homemade yogurt. Never would I ever have thought I would be making homemade yogurt. Now… well now, I can never go back to buying it at the store! Who knew how easy it was to make? I use my Instant Pot DUO 80to make it and the process is surprisingly simple. There are a few steps to getting it right but once you get the hang of it it is easy. We like whole milk yogurt as a family so I use organic whole milk but I am sure low-fat milk would work as well. Also coconut milk and soy milk, but I have yet to try those out! I…

  • My Instant Pot Review

    Behold the mighty Instant Pot. If you follow me on social media then you are aware that I love it… I mean, okay, it is bordering on an obsession. My Brother and Sister-In-Law gave me the Instant Pot DUO80 for Christmas and I could not wait to get back home to use it. It came out of the box a couple of days before the New Year and it has taken up residence on my kitchen counter ever since. It is used almost every day and sometimes multiple times a day. It seems to do EVERYTHING. It is part pressure cooker, part yogurt maker, part rice maker and part slow cooker.…
