Spring Fling Risotto

By | Dinner, Gluten-Free, Lunch, Spring | 2 Comments
Risotto. It sounds kinda fancy but it's about as easy to make as a box of mac and cheese once you've done it a few times. Promise. When we started eating more whole, fresh foods both brown rice and  quinoa became a staple part of our meals and before long I was alternating between them almost every other day. As much as I love both of them a plain pot of grains can get a little boring night after night. I've been experimenting with simple...

Gluten-Free Quinoa, Bean + Corn Casserole

Today I’m sharing a super easy, one dish, family friendly quinoa casserole with you. It’s great for any busy weeknight and can be made the night before and popped in the oven the next day.

Play around with the...

My cupboards used to be constantly stocked with these snacks (many touted...

Isn’t it funny how when you learn a new word or hear a popular quote you seem to hear it ten times that day??? A quote that I keep seeing pop up is “If it isn’t scheduled, it isn’t real”. I love it. It’s just such a simple truth. Setting an intention for better eating is a wonderful start but for most of us it needs to be accompanied by a solid plan - or schedule -  for it to...

Grain-Free Sweet Potato Brownies

From the Eat Anything Girl to the Mealtime Monster (+ Grain-Free Brownies!)

By | Becoming Minimalist, Cooking with Kids, Desserts, Gluten-Free, Winter | 4 Comments
Tired of spoon feeding your 4 year old, making one kid meal and one adult meal or simply serving the same 3 guaranteed they’ll eat it dishes night after night? Yeah. I was too. All in the name of getting her to eat. And I don’t mean eat her vegetables. I mean just eat. Eat anything. Anything other than the colour beige (pizza, pasta, bread – you know the drill). Anything without a major fuss (eeeeewwwwwws, I DON'T like that!,...
