Chapul High Protein Energy Bars and Flour Giveaway

Happy Earth Day!! Today I have a great product to introduce to you that is made using sustainable materials and the proceeds help to conserve water in the Colorado River. It is a perfect product to share with you on this Earth Day. My first experience with Chapul was on Shark Tank. Honestly I kind of thought it sounded disgusting to eat energy bars that were made with cricket flour. On that episode of Shark Tank, Mark Cuban signed a deal with the company, because he believed in their … [Read more...]

Crock Pot Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

One of the families all time favorite recipes is stuffed peppers, once upon a time we made it with rice which is very delicious. This was surprising to me since there are kids in the house that do not like tomatoes one bit, but they will eat stuffed peppers. We decided to try it with quinoa instead of rice once to see how we liked it, and found out that everyone loved it even more with the quinoa! So now we no longer make it with rice we only make it with quinoa. A couple things about … [Read more...]

Homemade Crock Pot Sloppy Joes

When I first started cooking I would purchase can's of Manwich and mix it with meat and we would have an easy recipe that the family loved! Once we started making most things ourselves I looked for a recipe that would be loved by everyone in our house just as much as the pre made that they had come to love. After many years of changing things around we have our own recipe for sloppy joe's that everyone loves without the additives and chemicals. This is one of the recipes that we make for our … [Read more...]

Homemade Cream Of Chicken Soup

There were quite a few family favorite recipes in our house that involved using cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup. Since we have started "clean eating" we refuse to use the canned soups at all, so I would just skip this in our recipes. This meant the recipes were much more dry then they once were, but we figured it was better then using something so full of preservatives. Well that was until I found out you can make your own condensed soups with clean ingredients! So this past month … [Read more...]

Delicious Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This week I have been sharing some of our favorite bread and muffin recipes. These are the recipes that we use to put in our freezer for our monthly freezer cooking. They are eaten as snacks most of the time, but sometimes they will be eaten for breakfast as well. We grow zucchini in our garden every year and there is always such an abundance of it, so we are always on the look out for new zucchini recipes. We spread and slice up extra zucchini during the summer and freeze it to use through … [Read more...]

Strawberries and Creme Breakfast Muffins

These, however, we make and everyone eats them for healthy breakfast muffins idea.

We use all organic ingredients to make our muffins, so not only are they a healthy breakfast idea they are also a clean eating breakfast idea ;-) . … [Read more...]

Moist Pumpkin Bread

Something that we all love eating for snacks is our homemade banana bread, I shared the recipe previously in a sponsored post. I still follow this same recipe, except I use raw honey as my sweetener which makes the whole recipe organic. For that reason I will not be sharing our banana bread recipe again. After freezing some of our bread in the past we realized that the bread would thaw out and be very crumbly and dry. So we changed our banana bread recipe to the one listed above. By … [Read more...]
