MMHM: Monkey Bowl Breakfast: Kid & Adult Friendly

Admittedly, I am not a breakfast person. I know how important breakfast is, so I eat it, although I could easily go without.

This is easy, healthy and has a fun name to help appeal to those kids that don’t like traditional breakfast foods. Really, this […]

What’s For Dinner? Taco Pizza & Shrimp Fajitas with Cauliflower Cilantro Lime Rice

This New Year: Focus On: Finding Balance, Restoration & Reflection

Many people take January 1st as the day to begin their New Year’s resolutions. For many people, creating a large (and often unrealistic goal) does not always work well come February. I often was one of those people. I would create big plans for myself, mainly deciding to start some sort of diet plan on January 1st, come mid-January, the diet plan would be out the door and I felt deflected. Over the past few years, I have taken a […]

#MMHM: Help keep the stomach bug away with grape juice!

Last winter I noticed a few different stomach bug “cures” floating around Pinterest and did not really pay much attention to them, until my whole family was hit with the bug. In a 3 day period, all 6 of us had an awful stomach bug. Even with all of the disinfecting, hand washing and laundry that I did, it was inevitable that we all got it. Fast forward to this past week, out of nowhere my 2 year old Maeve […]

What’s For Dinner? Butternut Squash & Sage Risotto

Risotto is one of my favorite dishes, I can easily eat it alone as my full meal or as a side dish with a piece of fish or grilled chicken. There are a lot of recipes out there for risotto, but many time the calories can really add up. I modified a recipe that I found on Skinnytaste and made a dairy free yet creamy risotto. This is one of my favorites and the sage really compliments the sweetness of […]
