Aubrey & I decided to start a juice cleanse this week. We just came out of a crazy busy season of moving, renovating, moving again & eating out way too much in the process! I was feeling way off track & in need of a major detox! Realistically, we all have times in our lives that priorities get switched around for whatever reason […]

Kindness Advent – Day 4

Kindness Advent – Day 4

For today’s advent, we took some friends a recipe for dinner with all the ingredients. The Allisons are a busy family…they pastor a church, both work & have 3 kids at 3 different schools. It’s hard to fit in a home cooked meal when you’re on the run, so we wanted to make it easy on them. Isn’t this pretty? I […]

1. Mateo’s Gourmet Salsa This stuff is made locally…right here in Frisco, Texas & it is muy delicioso!  When we buy a jar, it’s usually gone within a few days! 2. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix This is the best gluten free crust I’ve found.  It makes two 12″ pies…just make sure you have plenty of time because there […]

Have you ever heard of kohlrabi?  Nope…neither had I until it started showing up in our produce bin a few months ago.  It’s a member of the cruciferous (cabbage) family and tastes a lot like broccoli stems.  The word kohlrabi is actually German for “cabbage turnip” – and that’s exactly what they look like. I honestly have let a lot of […]

Today, I’d like to share a recipe with you that’s known around our house as the “fweeze fwuit” smoothie.  Here’s what you’ll need… 1 cup of orange juice (I juiced 3 small oranges & got about 10 ounces…if you don’t have a juicer, you can just use store bought OJ) 1/2 a bunch or 5 leaves of kale (I throw the […]

Minion Boosters

Minion Boosters

Even though it’s warming up outside, cold & flu season are still in full swing.  I used to find myself anxious throughout the winter that my kids might get sick.  I felt sort of powerless but then I had the realization that I play a HUGE role in their health!  There are a lot of things I can do to […]

Kindness Advent – Day 8

Our plans changed today after Aubrey ventured out to pick up our produce.  We are part of an organic co-op called Urban Acres & they are fantastic!  We love their story, what they’re doing & of course the super yummy fruits & veggies! It’s important to note that somehow we got dubbed the family who comes at the end of pick-up and […]
