Healthy Apple Pie

March 14, 2017

Yup, Apple pie!  Truly delicious, truly healthy, apple pie! The credit for this one goes to three people, Cathy Fischer for the crust, Dr. Fuhrman for the filling, and our friend Jenn for having the genius idea to put the two of them together.  I’m really glad she did too, because this is a great recipe that everyone will love.  The fact that it’s healthy is just a bonus!

Cashew Hot Chocolate

December 8, 2014

My 10 year old and I were invited to a get together where hot chocolate was going to be served.  Since we try to eat as healthy as possible, avoiding all dairy, sugar, and processed foods, I’m not into giving him traditional hot chocolate…  I still wanted to go, so I was thrilled when I found this recipe!  I made a batch and brought it with us so he wouldn’t feel…

Best. Birthday cake. Ever.

June 14, 2012

I was very proud of him for making that choice, but yes, nervous. We have made kids cry before with our healthy desserts. Multiple kids cry. Luckily they were part of our immediate family so they got over it quickly. But now…

It really satisfies my after dinner sweet craving and it is made of just fruit! To make the ice…
