There’s nothing like waking up to the smell of breakfast on a Sunday morning. Family breakfast on the weekends has always been one of my favorite meals. The words baked, blueberry and breakfast are all you need to say to get my attention. These Grain Free Blueberry Scones are a new favorite of mine and are a huge hit with my family. I thought there would be enough to freeze after we made the first batch, I was wrong. We devoured them! [click to continue…]
Salad means healthy right? Not always. I was stunned when I read the ingredients and nutritional facts to one of my Chick-Fil-A favorites, the Carrot and Raisin Salad. It contains sugar, high fructose corn syrup, mayonnaise, and a preservative called calcium disodium EDTA. It surprised me because I have definitely enjoyed the carrot and raisin salad for years and considered it to be a healthy option, but since I started eating cleaner, real/whole foods, its something that I am going to have to cut out of my diet.
There is good news! One of the main reasons Alison and I formed Down Home Health is to combat this very issue and provide healthy and delicious alternatives to not so healthy recipes that we “just can’t live without”. I developed a Healthy Carrot and Raisin Salad as a Chick-Fil-A copycat version. [click to continue…]
One of my absolute favorite things about summer is fresh berries. We created this Grain Free Berry Trifle with delicious blueberries and strawberries. I could (and have) eat blueberries by the pint full, and I feel the same about strawberries and raspberries. Growing up we would go and pick blueberries on a family friend’s land and just a few weeks back I took my son to a local farm to pick strawberries. There are countless ways to use fresh berries. Smoothies, baked oatmeal, tossed on some yogurt with some homemade granola, homemade jam, homemade ice cream – there are countless tasty ways to use delicious summer berries! [click to continue…]
