The Perfect Christmas Gift for your Family

Ross Petty

I love Christmas. I am one of those people that loves everything about it. I listen to the radio station that plays Christmas music, I welcome the Christmas aisles at the department store, and I decorate my house until my husband makes me stop. Don’t worry, I wait until after Remembrance Day. That’s long enough, […]

Oatmeal Energy Bites

Lately I’ve been speaking with lots of clients that have a sweet tooth. They’re looking for a snack they can allow themselves to eat, that “maybe isn’t as bad as a chocolate bar”? I know the feeling. I’m all about balance-I don’t believe you should take all the sweetness out of your life. You just […]

Cauliflower and Kohlrabi Soup

I love a good soup. If you’ve been on this website before, you probably know thanks to all the soup recipes like this Tomato and Lentil Soup, Cream of Cauliflower, Butternut Squash Soup, Kabocha Kale Sesame Soup, and more. I’m a soup lover. So it’s no surprise when I see a bunch of vegetables in […]

These oats are better than the rest. They are minimally processed so your body takes longer to digest them, keeping you fuller, […]

Create a “Kid Zone” this September and Be Happy.

Part of back-to-school is getting organized. Getting back into the routine of sleeping, eating, and figuring out where all this stuff is going to go, am I right? The backpacks, the extra shoes, the extra coats, the agendas, the workbooks, the lunch bags, the water bottles, and of course…those permission slips that are never where […]

Watermelon Pops

Summer is hot. And heat calls for popsicles. We’re all trying to be healthier, especially for our kids, and making homemade popsicles is one way we try to do our best in the summertime. I have been making different concoctions in an effort to reduce the sugar in our children’s diet. Let me tell, you-as a Holistic […]

Whole Wheat Yogurt Coffee Cake

Whenever I have people over to my house, I make banana bread or coffee cake or some sort of sweet treat. I also make loaves of goodness when I go visit friends, when there’s a potluck, or I know someone is stopping by-even for a minute. This infuriates my husband. He walks into the house […]
