    Snack Time with Quinn

    This post is sponsored by Quinn Snacks but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Through a series of elimination diets for myself and my eldest daughter, we discovered that gluten was not on our list of “friendly food” items. Not kidding, it took over a year to figure out that gluten, and also too much pasteurized dairy products, were at the root of my daughters horrible case of eczema. And when I mean horrible, I mean, whole body eczema. Not only did she have discolored rough patches in all of the “typical” locations eczema tends to appear, her whole body felt like sandpaper. She had patches on her…

    Easy Toddler Meals for Busy Families

    This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I can’t believe I am sharing my little Evie girl eating big girl food! I mean, I basically just brought her home from the hospital! Eating healthy has always been a priority for me, especially now that I have kids. We try to eat organic and non-GMO whenever possible – I follow the Dirty Dozen List on items we try to always get organic. But, we are also really busy. We all know that eating healthy can be a real challenge for busy families – especially when you have kids sensitive to…

    Reset + Refresh + Renew

    I have always loved making resolutions for the New Year. The anticipation and momentum building up to that 1/1 date gives me the energy I need to start the year off on the right foot.

I love using it as a marker for how I want the next year to go, and what changes I need to make in order to maintain balance in my life.

    Paleo Salmon Cake Recipe

    I am pretty excited to share these. I LOVE crab cakes, and salmon cakes, and tuna cakes… for real. Growing up and in college I was famous for making weird concoctions including whatever “cake” thing I could make. Baby #2 has me craving seafood. Like sushi, salmon, crab legs, you name it. Weird huh? Even better news about these cakes, my super picky toddler loved them (dipped in hummus of course).

    Healthy Greek Chicken Gyros

    I have found myself on a quest to find yummy paleo and/or gluten free meals. My daughter has shown signs of gluten sensitivity so that is what kicked my “mama bear” booty into gear. The other night I made a gluten free version of something I think i’ve had once in my life… Greek Chicken Gyros on Chickpea “flatbread” with homemade Tzatziki sauce. Since I don’t know what they were supposed to taste like, I had to rely on my hubby and toddlers taste buds to let me know if it was a success or not lol. Happy to report I got the thumbs up on adding this to the regular…
