No-Bake Energy Bites

I’m always on the hunt to find healthy snacks for my toddler. Something that’s not pre-packaged, not full of bad ingredients and also something that doesn’t take forever to make. These little energy bites are the perfect solution. Just stir all the ingredients together and roll into mini balls. And the best part, there’s no […]

Cranberry Bread (w/ No Refined Sugar)

cranberry walnut bread

Cranberry bread is one of my favorite breads this time of year. In this version, I used no refined sugars, which makes it just a little bit more healthier for my family. The sweetness comes only from orange juice and honey. I like this as a muffin too. You can pour batter in a muffin […]

Apple & PB Sandwich

this is a great snack for the whole family. It makes eating healthy more fun and creative. If you have a peanut allergy,  you can easily swap out the peanut butter for almond butter or another nut butter, or even sunflower butter. I bet using Nutella in this would also be delish.   Ingredients 1 […]

Mini Buckwheat Blueberry Pancakes

Tomato Soup Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

When my sister was little she LOVED tomato soup. I used to hate it, but now as an adult I have grown to love it. Especially with grilled cheese sandwiches. One of Oliver’s favorites lunches is a grilled cheese sandwich. I always try to add a veggie to his grilled cheeses, whether it’s spinach, kale […]
