Easy Raw Protein Granola Bars

Granola bars are a favorite among Americans. We wake up, grab a granola bar and rush out the door to begin our busy days. We pack our kids lunch and toss one in, thinking it will be a healthy addition. I mean, we’re talking about oats, and oats are good right? Yeah, they are…..but its not the oats thats the concern, its everything that surrounds … Continue reading Easy Raw Protein Granola Bars

Homemade Roasted Garlic Hummus

Hummus has gotten really popular in the last few years, and for good reason. Its a delicious, healthy and quick snack thats very versatile. Hummus is one of those things I would buy week after week.

Easy Spiced Coconut Granola

What’s in your granola? I searched out several popular brands of granola and checked out their ingredient labels, and what I found was disappointing….

When I simply turned them over to read the label, these popular granola brands were full of hidden MSG, GMO’s, soy, and even BHT! This … Continue reading Easy Spiced Coconut Granola

Fudgy Chocolate Avocado Cookies

I’m always thinking of ways to sneak something healthy into my kids food. I have to admit, I feel like such a prankster when I’m doing it. One time I made Black Bean Brownies. I served them up like they were getting the treat of the century. They gobbled them up and asked for more. After they ate them and the only thing left were … Continue reading Fudgy Chocolate Avocado Cookies
