How to Make Applesauce

Easy homemade applesauce with apples picked from the tree in our backyard.

This is my favorite applesauce recipe, I give it out whenever people ask me how to make homemade applesauce. It’s a simple recipe, easy, delicious and healthy too. On top of that? Kids love it –at least mine (and their friends) gobble it down every time we make it.

Another benefit of making applesauce from scratch? It’s an easy and nourishing recipe for children. Mine really get involved in peeling […]

I like to eat nuts because they’re full of good fiber, fill me up and don’t leave me hungry and lagging. In […]

These gluten free Goji Power Bars were a hit at the gym the other day.

My fellow gym rats were delighted when I brought these Paleo friendly, high protein, gluten free snacks to the gym last week. The consensus? These gluten free power bars hit the spot.

Made with healthy, high protein almond flour and nutritious goji berries, the gang wolfed these down, then asked for more. I promised them I would post this recipe for gluten free power bars and so […]
