Top Kitchen Tools Must Haves

Having a real food equipped kitchen can be helpful. With all the right utensils and equipment, you can make simple meals at home more often. Nothing will be as good as cooking meals at home where you control the ingredients, and it is much less expensive. A great way to build your utensils and equipment over time is to stick them all on a wish list and keep track if any go on sale. Also, another way we were able to keep adding is simply asking for them as gift items on special occasions. In just a year or...

Real Food Basic Pantry Staples

  Starting a real food journey doesn’t have to be complicated, it is quite the opposite. Back in 2012, we made some pretty simple changes that made a huge impact on our health. We started swapping out the highly processed boxes of quick breakfast items and traded them for things like rolled oats and fresh fruit for homemade oatmeal, sprouted bread for easier digestion, whole-grain crackers, regular store-bought eggs(from chickens fed processed feed, antibiotics, and poor living conditions) for free range pastured farm eggs, reduced-fat 2% milk for local whole, raw milk(numerous nutritional benefits!!). So many simple swaps making...

Baked Maple Cinnamon Apples And Sweet Potatoes

This cooler weather here in Tennessee is bringing out all the fall baked goods! I wanted to share some of our fall family favorites that are easy, delicious, and super kid-friendly. These aren’t your grandmother’s typical baked apples – that were most likely cooked in hydrogenated oils, refined brown sugars, and loads of butter. These are so much healthier and less processed and don’t worry, the flavor is still all there! Not to mention sweet potatoes are loaded in nutrients and essential vitamins. I love to serve them family-style on a large platter in the middle of the table...

One thing is for sure you learn so much as you go and really get a feel and knowledge of what you really need and what can be left behind. Keep in mind I tend to...

3 Ingredient Fig Chia Cookies

So excited to share a super yummy and healthy snack the whole family will enjoy. If you are like me the only time you heard of figs growing up was probably in the popular {highly} processed snacks Fig Newtons. Raw figs are actually incredibly nutritious and are the perfect healthy snack for kids! Figs are known to be high in magnesium, iron, potassium, and calcium and also rich in vitamins A & K. They are sweet like candy and can be eaten by themselves. I decided to put these in cookie form to make them more enticing to my...
