Week Eats with Whole Parenting

February 11, 2015

Hi all – I am linking up with the lovely Nell at Whole Parenting who hosts a Week Eats on her blog that is always yummy and delicious. Nell is also like a Renaissance woman since she used to be an attorney, and now makes the cutest baby clothes and runs after her three little ones while making delicious healthy food. She also is the cheerleader of the internet since she is always encouraging others and leaves a “so presh!” comment under every cute baby pic on Instagram.

This coming week involves a ski trip, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, a Wine Party, and the start of my Whole30 cleanse with Kelly Mantoan of This Ain’t the Lyceum blog. Basically every possible extreme when it comes to food.  I thought it would be funny/insane to give a real representation of what we will be eating and hopefully the links will lead you to some …

Healthy Peanut Butter Rice Crispy Treats

January 29, 2015

Ok, I guess ‘healthy’ is relative.

I just mean something that isn’t filled with preservatives and processed things and white sugars. Since my kids get enough of that everywhere.

I wanted to have something for them after school that they would eat but wouldn’t be filled with sugar. It was a bonus that I liked them too. Seriously, they taste like peanut butter and jelly with the cranberries, but with healthy ingredients. I am so happy I found these and I am sure we’ll be tweaking them. I am thinking that peanut butter pairs really well with chocolate, so I see that in our future.

Since these have the health benefits of honey and peanut butter instead of marshmallows and butter, we have more room for pizza in our processed food schedules. Carry on.
