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! I am going to list some health benefits so we know why we should add them and what exactly we are getting out of them. Goji berries are high in fiber, protein, and contain several vitamins and minerals such as copper, iron, zinc, and vitamins A & C. Some of the benefits of consuming goji berries include helping prevent cancer growth, anti-aging, improving blood sugar control, boosting energy levels and helping with natural weight loss, and improving...

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!)....

Fudgey Avocado Cosmic Brownies + Chocolate Avocado Frosting

You know what they say, pregnancy cravings are the real deal you guys!

I had several ripe avocados laying around so they made the perfect base for this easy and delicious brownie recipe. These are such a fun treat to whip up and even my husband who...

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...

Peanut Butter Fudge Bars

Seriously guys these easy no bake peanut butter bars are the perfect snack to have on hand! We went through them pretty quickly the first time and everyone has requested them again. These are the perfect snack to whip up when pressed for time or maybe you just don’t feel like turning on the oven. Either way, these will be a hit with your kids and quite possibly your husbands too! You can sub any nut butter or even use Sun Butter to pack in school lunch boxes. I just love how soft and fudge like they feel and...

This post was kindly sponsored by Bumkins and all opinions are 100% my own.    If you guys follow along on Instagram regularly then you know we about all about the snacks! Whether it is homemade stuff, quick grab and go’s in the pantry, or some fresh prepped produce in the fridge we love our snacks. One thing I have intended on switching to(for literally years) but procrastinated to make the leap are reusable snack bags. We ditched the plastic years ago when it comes to food storage and dinnerware/drinkware but one thing I always cringed at still buying...

Oven Roasted Garlic Green Beans

  These Garlic Green Geans are on weekly rotation at our house and get devoured on spot every single time! If your kids are tired of traditional cooked green beans I highly recommend giving these a try. Recently we went to a restaurant and I ordered the kids a side of green beans and my four year old declared she only liked mommy’s green beans at home! It made me feel pretty good about these and made me want to share with other mamas! They pair perfectly with the Almond, Cashew, Chia Crusted Chicken Tenders which are also on the...
