Malia’s Birth Story : April 15, 2011

If you read Jackson’s Birth Story, you’ll know why I am not posting recipes this week, but rather my birth stories.  I love listening/reading/watching birth stories – each one is so very unique, but similarly, they all bring me to tears. Birth reminds me that a woman’s body is a powerful force and the magic of… Continue reading Malia’s Birth Story : April 15, 2011

Sausage and Vegetable Bake (Paleo, Whole30 and Kid-Approved)

I’m always looking for new ways to serve sausage. I feel like I’ve been stuck in the rut of just eating them for breakfast with eggs and vegetables.

One of my family’s fall traditions is to frequent the many pumpkin patches in our town.  With our visit to the pumpkin patch on Sunday morning, it only felt right to go with our belly’s full of pumpkin waffles.

Paleo Protein Pumpkin “Granola”

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for all things PUMPKIN!  Fall is my favorite season, so it’s no surprise that I jump on the bandwagon of all the fall food favorites! A lot of autumn recipes consist of Whole30/Paleo ingredients (pumpkin, pumpkin spice, coconut, nuts), so creating a “granola” fits right in. I love this… Continue reading Paleo Protein Pumpkin “Granola”
