A Pizza Party

February 11, 2017

This one is so simple!  It’s been a quick go-to of ours for years, but we haven’t made them in a while.  The boys had their cousins coming over tonight for a sleepover, and it worked out perfect!     A big key in getting kids to eat healthy food is to have them be part of the process and decisions.  We started tonight by asking the kids what kind of veggie…

Chickpea Potato Curry

April 7, 2016

My kids love going out for Indian food, but for some reason, never like my Indian inspired dishes at home.  I finally have a winner!  I realized I need to add potatoes (apparently, they love any dish with potatoes) and I need to blend my stewed tomotoes so there are no chunks.  My kids are not picky eaters by any means and will usually anything, so when one tells me…

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…
