2-Ingredient Paleo Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Pancakes!

Wanting to have pancakes for yourself (or per your kiddos requests) every morning can be both laborious and unhealthy.   Additionally, we are coming into an age where there are more food allergies than ever imagined and alternatives are popping up everywhere.   That being said, if you’ve ever wanted a “healthy” version of pancakes, well here they are!  These pancakes have only TWO ingredients, are super easy to make, AND are Paleo, Gluten-free & Dairy-free. Ready?  Here’s the ingredient list: 2…

The All Natural Lie

Can I just say #$@! the words “All-Natural”?!?!? I mean, excuse my rant, but the marketing departments of food companies (and cosmetics) have really pushed the phrase “All Natural” to the maximum limit when it comes to foods. Yes, we all need to eat more foods around the perimeter of the store (which I do), however for those snack foods you like to have around the house for you and the kiddos…the word’s “All-Natural” have lost all meaning to me…its…

To Be ORGANIC or Not To Be

Yesterday I was talking to my girlfriend about Organic Veggies and Fruits and it occurred to me that some people are seriously being duped into buying produce that is not organic, and is even GMO sometimes.  So here’s a quick guide to help you “see” what you’re buying. When purchasing produce always always ALWAYS check the PLU code.  The PLU code will tell you if a fruit or veggie is 1) organic, 2) conventionally grown, 3) Genetically Modified (GMO), or…

1 Thing You Can Do To Eat Cleaner Food

Now that Pesticides and GMO’s are in the news, people are having a tendency to head for the Organic section of the markets (and even farmers markets)…I know I am!!  I don’t want any part of those chemicals in my body, or my baby’s for that matter. However even buying organic can have some precautions of its’ own.  Since you’re buying better (in my opinion), you’re also buying fruits and veggies that are being trampled on by bugs, and birds,…

Get Shredded…with Chicken (Recipe)

Trying to find clean eats for you and the family can be a daunting task sometimes…especially when we’re all pressed for time.  One recipe that I always like to make time and time again is shredded chicken.  Why? Because you can make it with any piece of chicken that you get from the market (except ground of course) AND you can make a bunch to last you for the week. Shredded chicken is great because you can put it on…

Organic Sun Protection with Coola

Now that summer is right around the corner (for some of us its here already), we all need to be a lot more conscious about sun protection for our skin. (although you should be wearing a daily sunblock!) 😛  I have had a recent discovery of Coola organic sun care.  My sister actually stumbled on this brand at a local shop, and got it for me for my birthday.  I instantly fell in love. First off, it’s organic sun protection….

MMmmmmm Simply Fine Dining (at home!)

How many people (show of hands) have time to make a well-prepared meal that is not only healthy and nutritious but tasty as well?  No one? Well, maybe a few (very lucky!).  In our busy schedules, it’s often very difficult to not only cook the food, but prepare it as well.  And on top of that, have the food taste good AND be nutritious? Occasionally I’ll make the time and prepare the food, to have it come out wonderfully, or…

Marlee and Noah – Truly Organic Skincare for Mom and Baby

I have to say that I am always skeptical when it comes to anything for your skin.  I am very nervous about chemicals and additives that either absorb into your skin and add toxins to your body OR which are counter intuitive and defeat the entire purpose of purchasing that product (money wasters).   Even when you find a product that is organic and good for your skin, the smell can be rather frightening too. I came across Marlee and Noah…
