“Hey, hey, Mae: I struggle with getting my kids to even try new foods, so they're stuck on their favorites and those contain loads of what we may need to try an elimination for. How can I make this work for our family?” Implementing food changes can be easy...until our feelings and our kids’ opinions get involved, right?
“Hey, hey, Mae: I heard you stay away from dairy and am curious as to why?” Before we get moving on some dairy education, I want to recognize that stealing someone’s cheese is about as serious to Americans as removing apple pie from the fall dessert lineup.
“Hey, hey, Mae: How exactly DO you eat and why? How did you go gluten-free and dairy-free with kids?” Grandma’s brownies, chips, family-recipe chocolate chip cookies and pouches of fruit punch Capri-Sun were the high, yummy points of my childhood.
These Sweet Sunday Afternoon Chocolate Chip Chewies are both gluten free and dairy free. They’d even fit the paleo cookie lineup, too! This one-bowl paleo cookie recipe makes 8 chewy cookies and comes together quickly. Almond flour, butter, maple syrup and a farm fresh egg can pack some nutrients in to a sunny, Sunday treat spot.
While you don’t have to shape these immune-boosting gummies into various sized Lego-men and bricks, I do quite enjoy these lego gummy molds, and my little men go bananas for them! I grabbed these molds off of amazon and use a turkey baster to fill them up. Use a baster for gummy making - it’ll change your life! So much easier.
Frozen waffles are our go-to, and often still are, but I'm trying to mix in a good bit of other easy and quick morning bakes to balance things out, give some variety and keep things interesting (and portable!). The muffins are the perfect, quick fix.
Knock back a cold or enjoy a cozy cup of soup with this comforting Lemon Chicken Turmeric Ginger Soup.
It's been a tricky, wintry month here in the bluegrass and I feel like it's left a lot of friends with stuffy noses, allergies and colds. If that's you, this is my go-to soup to help patch me up, get a lot of nutrition into my body with a side of anti-inflammatory boost.
The soup is paleo, gluten free, dairy free & anti inflammatory.
Getting back to this sweet place that I love as our sweet, second son gets to growing and I get to sleeping more. Excited to hop back on board and share a backlog of images, miles of words and a bucket load of favorites, which can maybe benefit my reading/lady/mom/human friends.
A quick little recap from last spring when my sister and I threw our other sister a baby shower for her little adventure baby. The idea came from the fabrics and theme our sister, Sara, chose for her baby's room.
One of my most faves lately has been Grove Collaborative. It's been a few months of receiving their shipments and I have to say after being super leery of mail order, scheduled household stuff, I'm hooked.
