Pancakes are such a hit around here and this recipe is such a good way to sneak a balanced meal into the kids. I've even pureed spinach into this recipe to get veggies in too - green pancakes! You can also experiment and add pureed pumpkin or sweet potato. I hope that your family enjoys these as much as we do!
This is one of my hubby's breakfast favorites. We can definitely fall victim to getting stuck into routine eating the same things day in and day out so this breakfast burrito is a nice change. Black beans, eggs, spinach, and the whole grain wrap are all good sources of protein and iron making this an energizing breakfast. The salsa adds some spice and the avocado adds a welcome creamin ...[Read More]
First off, in case you didn't know...I love avocado SO much so that when my hubby brought a bunch of big, beautiful Bermuda avocados home from work (THANK YOU Damien!) I did a happy dance. Since they are almost all ripe, I don't want to waste any of their precious monounsaturated fats, potassium, or fiber! It's a good thing that we have my mother and father in-law visiting to help take some of the ...[Read More]
You race in the door for dinner and everyone is hungry and there are no groceries and nothing prepared. You could pick up the phone and get take out but you know that's not the healthiest option and it's still going to take 45 minutes. What do do? Break out the eggs and make these super easy and fast Eggy Crepes.
Let's start by saying that I love my oats 🙂 The thing that I love the most about them is that they are satisfying and keep me feeling full throughout the morning, no sugary cereal crash for this gal. I do however get tired of having my oats the same way all the time so I like to get creative and I love them with a Muesli texture without all of the added sugar of store-bought varieties. These are s ...[Read More]
If you find yourself on the run in the morning, why not take your healthy breakfast to go?! Here's my favorite way to get my complex carbs, protein, veggies, and healthy fats all in one when I don't have time to have it all separately.

If you are looking for a little breakfast variety or you're like me and have breakfast type food any time of day here is a nutritious and delicious idea! Not to mention that it's way cheaper than buying the chia pods in the store and so much better too!!
I love pancakes for breakfast and love them even more when they're packed full of nutritional goodness. These pancakes are so easy that it's ridiculous and they were a big hit around our house this morning. Here's the recipe: I hope that you enjoy them!
This dish is great as a light desert, can be eaten as a snack, or for breakfast 🙂 Recipe *You can skip the vanilla protein powder and it's just as delish. Enjoy!
Instead of eating eggs and oats every day these protein pancakes make for a nice change. As with everything I make, they're super quick & easy.
This would serve 2-3 people
I had a really hard time finding any decent gluten free/egg free bread for my daughter in the grocery store. The ingredient list on most of these breads is definitely not Health Fanatic approved :). I picked up a package of Bob's Red Mill gluten free bread and experimented. So here's what I did.. I warmed 1 3/4 cups of unsweetened almond milk and let the yeast 'bubble' (although it didn't reall ...[Read More]
What better way to start your day than with these delicious pancakes which include protein, fruit, veggies, whole grains and healthy fat.
Instead of waiting for your steel cut oats to cook (since the watched pot only boils over the moment you walk away :)) try cooking them in the slow cooker or soaking them so that they cook more quickly. If you want to soak them just simply put your steel cut oats in your pot with the specified amount of water, cover and let them soak overnight and they will cook up in half the time in the mo ...[Read More]
