Blueberry Oatmeal

Blueberry oatmeal with pepitas and walnuts is what’s going to fuel my morning! I love oatmeal, and could eat it most days. I do need a little variety in it though, do if you haven’t tried it with blueberries, I definitely think you should. I made mine single serving this morning…

Healthy Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Friday night is pizza night, right?!? I love pizza so much, but for a really long time after I started eating healthier I couldn’t find good options for pizza. I think I’ve got it down now though. This 6 inch pizza was about 250 calories, and I think that’s…

Millet Bread

One of the breads my dad always loved most when I started work at a whole grain bakery was this raisin millet bread. I’ve always loved it as well, but for some reason I haven’t made it in several years? My husband was so excited to see it coming out of…

Buddha Bowls

It was a make your own Buddha bowl the other day at our place. I love to serve meals like this with plenty of healthy options, but everyone gets to choose what they eat… The options we had out were baby greens, quinoa, grilled salmon, chickpeas, olives, red onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and feta…

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Pancakes are always a favorite in our house. My youngest has been obsessing over them lately and wanted then all the time. To keep from making them 3 or 4 times a week, I make a huge batch, layer them on parchment on baking sheets, freeze, then bag them up. This way he can pull…

I started doing intermittent fasting quite awhile ago. Not because I feel like it’s helping me lose weight, I just needed a way to stay within a reasonable calorie intake range. Once I start eating, it’s really difficult to stop. So I generally start eating about 11 to noon everyday…

Almond Orange Bars

So, I made the almond orange gluten free cake on Wednesday. Yesterday I decided to modify the recipe and make it mini loaves instead. This cut calories in several ways- decreased the butter and sugar used in the upside down part of the cake, then also I cut back in the sugar in the cake…

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

I have always loved @kingarthurflour whole wheat sandwich bread recipe. It’s a straight dough method, basically you throw all the ingredients in at one time, mix, proof, shape and bake. It’s actually pretty simple. Time consuming, but simple. If you have been wary of whole wheat breads, you&#8217…

Almond Orange Upside Down Cake

I was so inspired by @fancyplantsfoodie post the other day with a vegan orange cake, I had to try. I looked through several different recipes and kind of combined a few to come up with a recipe I felt like would work. My only irritation with this was after pulling it from the…
