What’s In My Hospital Bag, From A Seasoned Mom!

When it comes to getting ready for the birth of your baby there are many things to do and packing a hospital bag is one of them! I remember when our first child was born – it looked like we packed the entire house, so funny! I had so many “just in case” items and things that just took up too much space. 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...

Simple Superfood Trailmix

If you are looking to add some new and nutritious staples to your pantry I highly recommend some of these listed below!

Strawberry Chia Crumble Bars

  Strawberry season is right about the corner here in Tennessee and I am so excited! The strawberries at the store have been looking so good and I haven’t been able to resist buying them. I have made many crumble bars in my day and they are actually really simple as far as the base goes just flour, sugar, butter, and oats. I figured it was time to give a stab at creating my own with what combinations I like the most! Having fresh strawberries on hand was the perfect excuse to try them out too. Of course you...

One Of My New Favorite Healthy Fats – Raw Cacao Butter! + Recipes

  Have you ever heard of raw cacao butter? Not to be confused with cocoa butter, they have similarities but the nutritional value is completely different! Raw cacao butter is the unprocessed fat extracted from cocoa beans and doesn’t go through a high heating process leaving it in complete raw form full of antioxidants and nutrients. Cocoa butter, on the other hand, does go through a high heating process killing off most nutrients and vitamins. A very similar process and philosophy as raw, unpasteurized dairy vs pasteurized store-bought dairy (why we love our raw milk and dairy so much!)....

5 Minute Sheet Pan Pizzas

  Who else loves pizza night?! Take-out pizza was one of the very first foods we ditched and opted to start making our own, fresh at home. If you have been following me for awhile you probably know how much I love making our own dough from scratch. Sometimes though the day can slip away from you leaving you with no time to make homemade dough, or maybe it’s just not your thing anyways. Either way I have the perfect solution for when you want a healthier, homemade pizza with minimal effort! One of my favorite factors is you...
