I love chicken because it is delicious, easy to make, kids rarely complain about it and if you cook enough it can be used for several meals. These days it is fairly easy to source well raised pastured chickens too. This is the way my mother and grandmother used to roast chickens, one of the few healthy recipes passed down to me. This is my quick and easy go to on weeknights because it is so hands off, so simple literally ANYONE can make it.
holistic nutrition made easy

I just cannot seem to cut coffee out of my life, nor do I really want to. So, I have been experimenting with ways to make it healthier and yummier. Here is my latest… Mix it all up and enjoy!
In my family breakfast is a big deal! Not only is it great bonding time, a hearty breakfast will fuel you for the rest of the day and prevent that afternoon sugar crash.

Looking for a protein packed, veggie filled quick and easy morning breakfast? Try out this Butternut Squash Saute. It tastes great as is or change it up by adding different seasonings, meat or veggies, like kale.
Smoothies are our go to for an afternoon snack (or meal). I am always looking for ways to get some fresh veggies into my kids’ diet and smoothies are the perfect place. We came up with this delicious new smoothie today. The kiddos dubbed it Peachy Green.
One staple for a well nourished gut while implementing a nutrient dense diet is a good bone broth (or stock). Broth is chock full of minerals and gelatin which are necessary for gut healing. Nowadays you can easily find some great tasting nourishing broths in your health food store. But, they are expensive. So, I learned to make my own.
