Recipe Suggestions

  • Here is a link to my Breakfast Recipes, you’ll find them all very easy and kid friendly, if you happen to have a little chef in the house, they are all easy to make!
  • Check out 100 Days of Real Food Blog, she has a lot of great recipes all made with “Real Food,” including whole wheat pizza dough; whole wheat tortillas; Salad Dressing; Energy Balls.  She also has a great app called “Prepear” that you can use to plan your meals out – just an overall great resource!
  • Make a large batch of rice or quinoa on Sunday and use in your lunches and recipes throughout the week!

Things to Consider when buying:

  • Choose Nut Butter that is only Nuts + Salt (Kirkland Organic, from Costco is my choice)
  • When buying Greek Yogurt, choose plain and add a little honey + fruit for sweetness (Fage 2% is my favorite)
  • Choose a trail mix without chocolate, or make your own with almonds + Craisins + sunflower seed + pumpkin seeds, and a little granola
  • Check out Metronome Wellness for the list of dirty dozen + Clean 15 Produce
  • I purchase most of my meat from Butcher Box.  I love the quality, service, and selection.  They only sell only humanely raised meats, with the promise that the animals were never given hormones or antibiotics, so I can feel good about feeding it to my family.  I have been very please over the past few years.  A side note, I am not a fan of meat shopping, so to have it delivered, frozen, to my door is a win-win for me!
  • I love me some Costco & Trader Joe’s.  Both have a good variety of affordable, organic food. 
  • As much as I love fresh fruit and veggies, I must admit, I buy a lot of frozen, it’s nice to always have on hand and know that it’s going to keep.
  • When time allows, you can’t beat a good farmer’s market or roadside stand for the best local produce around!
