Kale is a serious superfood that goes unappreciated and undercooked in most households. Kale contains alpha-lipoic-acid, an antioxidant shown to help regain insulin sensitivity, prevent oxidative stress, and help lower glucose levels. In saying this, kale is seriously it’s own food group when trying to reverse type 2 diabetes. Kale also contains high levels of […]
The trade off is, nuttier and heartier flavors, increased fiber content, increased protein content, increased vitamin and mineral content, NO carb/sugar crash (because whole-grains are lower glycemic), and you feel more satiated faster, which means you won’t feel the urge to go back for seconds and consume even more calories! So basically it’s a win-win, and everyone that tried these little babies absolutely loved them. They even appreciated the dynamic flavor each component brought to the dish, without missing the sweetness overload most strawberry shortcakes possess. And who needs all that extra sugar when you can drown your biscuit in fresh strawberries bursting with natural sweetness? Cheers to strawberry season – get pickin’!
I was craving chocolate pudding today when I got home. Most folks either make chocolate pudding from scratch with a lot of milk, egg yolks, and sugar. Or we buy a small box of cook and serve chocolate pudding which also has quite a bit of sugar. On top of all this, sitting there and […]
Lemonade is oh so delicious but packed with a ton of sugar which is no good! Upwards of 25 grams of sugar just for a one cup serving. This puts you over your daily limit of sugar in just one glass of stinkin’ lemonade! I’ve seen a few lavender lemonade recipes but many still involve […]
I need to start out by saying my Mom approves of this sandwich! I say this because my mom usually thinks everything I eat or make is weird, gross, or too healthy tasting – but I hit this one out of the park apparently. So I’m bragging!
I’m currently eating this right now and I must say it is so delicious, I had to post the recipe! All the flavors work perfectly together to make this amazing refreshing bowl of goodness. And it takes minutes to make; who can argue with that?!
Have you ever had an over abundance of fruits or vegetables, especially during the summer months and not known what the heck to do with them all? Canning is a great way to preserve vegetables, fruits, and other foods. With the summer quickly approaching, I thought it would be convenient to post about canning and […]
That’s right I said it. Guilt free and Brownie batter in one sentence. How, you ask? Honestly, I’m not quite sure how it happened, but it did, and its so worth sharing! DISCLAIMER: Contains NO brownies!
Pad Thai has to be one of my all time favorite meals to eat. From the perfect textured rice noodles, delicious light sauce, perfectly cooked veggies, crunchy peanuts, and tender meat (if you choose so.) Its just so so so good! If you’ve never eaten thai food or experienced this dish I’m begging you to […]
I started making my own toothpaste about a year ago. All my friends and family thought I was totally off my rocker! But in reality making your own toothpaste is not only easy, fun, and cheaper but actually more effective than fluoridated toothpaste.. not to mention less toxic.
