Delicious Mini Frittatas

I’ve made this recipe before, but it’s so good it bears repeating. It is one of those breakfast options that is yummy alone or can even be paired with a side salad to be eaten for lunch.  They also freeze really well, so they’re a great option to make in bulk to store in your freezer….

Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!).

Super Moist Banana Bread With Chunks of Dark Chocolate

I had a couple of bananas on their last day of survival before making it to the trash.  Spotted brown and slightly softened, the only way to enjoy these babies were in a bread.  I’ve been stuck home treating an asthmatic child and haven’t made it to the grocery store in 3 days!  Thankfully, this…

Bulletproof Coffee

Yes, you read that right… It’s bulletproof!  Coconut oil in your coffee. Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.”  Its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health.  The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy…

Yummy Coconut Pancakes

If you’ve been following my blog, I think it’s pretty well established that breakfast foods are my most favorite.  Like my good man Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation says “There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”  Such wisdom, Ron, such wisdom. Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 cup milk (coconut and…
