Asian Inspired Pizza

Recipe by Katie Coleman This recipe was created when a friend contacted us regarding her desire to change their family’s diet and eating habits. They didn’t necessarily want to go plant based or any extreme change, moreover, an overhaul of the quick and processed. The X-Factors….Dad really loves his meat, and the 8 year old…

Plant Based Diet Experiment – Update 01/20/17

Alright, so, it’s been about a week of complete illness running through the household. ‘Tis the season for cold and flu. Yet, I’ve managed to stay on track eating plant based. This is a quick update since I’ve been feeling quite awful with a head cold and can’t differentiate health benefits whilst fighting a virus…

Pancakes Baby!

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes Recipe by Katie Coleman In the midst of my 30 day plant based eating experiment, I was inspired to redo my standard recipe. Being that our 1 year old ate 3 whole pancakes, we’re talking adult size, I’d say they were a hit.   Ingredients 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour 1/4 Cup…

Get Kids in the Kitchen

  It’s a topic that comes up frequently. Whether it’s “how do I get my kids to eat xyz…?” or just about the need to encourage kids to develop some basic skills, there is a giant void in knowledge even on an adult level when it comes to cooking. Some find it daunting, some simply…

It wasn’t a series of breakouts and didn’t correlate with hormonal cycles either. We’re now at day Seven of the experiment and my skin…

Healthier Kid’s Mac and Cheese

Do I mix up a box of Annie’s Mac and Cheese for my boys from time to time? Of course I do! Any parent that denies the convenience and ease of such a quick and easy processed meal is kidding themselves. However, in actually less time, if I have leftover noodles in the refrigerator, I…

Plant Based Eating Experiment – Update

The most difficult thing about going all plant based in my diet is honestly the cooking experience. I live to cook. The processes are similar; but, ingredients will react differently. Coconut oil doesn’t react the same way butter does, and meatless burgers need much, much more of a binding ingredient than hamburger. But, there’s nothing…

Let’s start at the very beginning…
