I’ve been collecting Veggie Fries recipes lately, all of which are non-potato recipes. So, I’m not supposed to eat regular white potatoes because they’re bad for inflammation (I have Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism) and while I LOVE sweet potato fries, Mr. Meaty does not. I decided I’d throw myself on the task of trying out All the […]
I need more healthy zucchini recipes… I’ve been thinking this in my head for the past few weeks. If you like to garden, even it’s just a small veggie patch in the yard, you have probably already discovered the amazing producing abilities of zucchini. It can be pretty overwhelming to try and figure out new and creative […]
This month over at Organic Authority I have articles ranging from the possible rebirth of Wild Oats health food markets (which could mean more competition and therefore lower grocery bills for us) to Easy Vegan, Gluten Free Oats Breakfast Cookies recipes. Check out my articles over at Organic Authority now. Foodie Buzz, Health & Wellness: […]
For a completely unfortunate reason, our family went on an unplanned month-long vacation this summer. It’s been a rough road for our family recently but all the same it was great for us all to get together, tell stories and share our children’s lives. Among all my immediate cousins we have the following kids’ ages: […]
I’m super excited that I was chosen to sample the new Power Garden Berry Veggie drink. It’s really tasty on its own (and is a pretty purple, which happens to be Bug’s favorite color). You can’t really taste the veggies, even though it’s packed full of them. It primarily tastes like cherries and strawberries. Yum! As […]
We’ve been getting some beautiful rainbow carrots in our CSA box lately (ours are purple, yellow, orange and some are a bit chartreuse). So the kids and I have been enjoying julienned carrots dipped in yogurt a lot. We decided to make an extra special dip last week from our fun book, The Outrageously Big Activity, Play and […]
Particularly for those on restricted diets like vegans and vegetarians, daily vitamins can be an important part of staying healthy. Keeping up your energy and getting enough of certain nutrients that aren’t as easy to get through a vegetarian or vegan diet gives you a way to make superior health simple. Here are 5 more […]
We love lasagna; it’s a holiday favorite and an everyday favorite. And the kids love just about anything in cupcake shape. So when I saw Lasagna Cups recently on Pinterest, I knew I’d have to make them eventually. That was several months ago, but I finally got around to it. Which led to the creation of […]
I’m still on my personal pantry challenge and I have potatoes aplenty. So today I’m sharing Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes with half purple potatoes and half white. You can do your slow cooker mashed potatoes in any color or variety you like. The purple potatoes have extra nutritional benefits, which can boost your mood and reduce inflammation.
This is a great recipe to use to make a yummy meal out of a big batch of leftover baked potatoes. And, of course, the best part is mixing up the mix-ins however everyone likes them. For the TVP, I added a bit of bacony salt (made with smoked tomato spice blend just like the Bacony Quinoa) to make the crunchy/chewy TVP simulate bacon. Delicious.
