Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed!  Happy Easter!! And Happy 9th Birthday to my oldest (tomorrow)!

Let’s Get Going!

We have a busy week ahead with family over, celebrating my daughter’s birthday, a trip to the zoo, two dentist appointments, our usual activities, bringing a meal to a friend and a party. I’m not sure how this all ended up this week. I hope I’m up for the challenge!

I’m glad my big kids will be able to help me in the kitchen this week. They each get turns to make dinner. And hopefully help me bake too.

Do You Know The Facts?

Have you been tuning in to The Truth About Vaccines documentary? I can’t focus on anything else. It is so fascinating…and infuriating. Parents need to know the facts and have a choice!

Here is our real food meal plan for picky eaters. What’s on your menu?

We thought it might never come…but spring is finally here! It’s supposed to be around 70 degrees today!! I just hope it stays. We could all use some time in the sun and fresh air.

Back to Normal.

In spite of the nasty weather we had a lot of fun on spring break. But this week it’s back to normal routines (and I’m glad!).

My goal this week is to get the kids back in the kitchen with me. My oldest needs to work on some new skills that she’s learning in the Kids Cook Real Food ecourse. My daughter is almost 9 and already doing some of the advanced skills. You can sign your kids up too and get a free download with 10 healthy snacks kids can make by themselves.

Now on to the food! Here is our real food meal plan for picky eaters (though picky eaters don’t really exist in my house anymore).

Is it really April already? March was a bit of a fog with sickness. But now everyone is healthy and ready to get out in the nice spring weather!! Hopefully it will stick around now since this week is spring break.

We aren’t going on any fancy trips. But we are taking a break from our regular school work to do fun stuff like hiking, a Spanish puppet show and making a fair garden. The kids and I want to work on barn clean up too. Our chicks are getting so big. They’ll be out in the coop before we know it. We might spend some time in the kitchen. I have to see if the kids have any requests.

Get Your Copy!

If you haven’t gotten your copy yet now is a great time to check out my new book Easy Nourishment For Picky Eaters! I’ve got lots of fun recipes that any kid will love.

Easy Nourishment for Picky Eaters

Happy Birthday!

This week we have another celebration – my husband’s birthday! He requested lasagna for his birthday dinner. And we’re making grasshopper pie for dessert. Then as a really special treat we are going out to eat as a family this weekend. Due to extreme allergies we haven’t been to a restaurant in over a year. My youngest has never even tasted food from a restaurant (not a bad thing if you ask me!). But we are all pretty excited to go out for once. Now I just have to find a decent restaurant.

New Food!!

We’ve been doing a little more food introduction lately. I am amazed at how much food my little one tolerates now! She is doing ok with eggs it seems, as long as we don’t go crazy and eat them every day. Which is hard because she LOVES eggs. She’s been eating clementines lately too without any reactions. Another new favorite. Plus sweet potatoes, cranberries and beets. It’s so exciting to have so many options!!

But not everything goes well when we try it. Last week we tried pineapple. The meltdowns from my two youngest were unreal. Not to mention the tummy aches and return of picky eating. That was a big NO. It bothers my husband too. So it looks like my oldest and I get to enjoy the rest.

Here is our real food meal plan for picky eaters. In my house nobody turns down tacos and cheeseburgers. What’s on your menu?

Back on Track!

We made it! We all (except one lucky child that never had it) made it through the flu. It wasn’t easy keeping up with life while I was sick. But we managed. Now it’s time to get back to normal routines.

I’m trying some new recipes this week. I’m anxious to see if the kids like them or not. If they are a hit I’ll be sure to share!

In the Kitchen.

There aren’t many big kitchen projects this week. If time allows I’d like to make a new batch of gluten free graham crackers. Maybe I’ll make a chocolate version since my kids want to make grasshopper pie for my husband’s birthday next week.

Exciting News!

One thing I did accomplish this weekend was to finish my new book! I’ve got a few technical things to deal with before I release it. But my goal is by next weekend.

Another exciting thing is that my toddler is finally back on track with eating well after being sick! It’s such a relief to me to have her eating and sleeping so well again. As an added bonus I let her try eggs again. And no reaction! I’m going to try giving her eggs once a week and see how it goes.

I bet you can guess how our week is starting? Yep, we’re still dealing with illness! I’m praying mother nature pays attention to the calendar and realizes that spring starts this week. We are so ready to get outside, soak up some vitamin D and get rid of the germs!!

House Before Kitchen

Considering how last week went I didn’t add any extra to-do’s to my list this week. My goal is just to deal with laundry and clean the house. Kitchen time will be saved for meal prep only.

We are going with Taco Tuesday again this week so my son can keep practicing his stove top skills. My goal is in the next couple months that I won’t need to help or monitor at all. He already has his own taco seasoning recipe to follow.

Kids in the Kitchen

Speaking of kids cooking, the Kids Cook Real Food ecourse is coming back! It’ll be open in April. If you want your kids to become independent in the kitchen as much as I do my kids make sure you check it out! And if you are a fellow home schooler it is so easy to incorporate into your curriculum.

Do you have any picky eaters in your house? Grab some of these kid-friendly meal ideas and add some nourishment and great eating to your week!

Yes, for real, we have more sickness. My toddler woke up Friday night vomiting. Thankfully it was pretty short-lived. We are praying it doesn’t spread!

Spring Forward!

Are you feeling tired this morning or did you go to bed an hour early? Or maybe you don’t have to worry about daylight savings. I hope we all adjust quickly. Taking away an hour of sleep is hard!

Let’s Party!

This week we have all of our usual activities plus something fun – my birthday! We started a tradition last year that the kids plan and cook dinner on my birthday. It’s so much fun! And a special treat to not have to plan a meal for once. I can just relax and let someone cook for me (well, mostly…I’m sure I’ll have to lend a hand here and there).

I also have a fun birthday post coming up on Tuesday. Stay tuned.

Here is our kid-friendly real food meal plan for the week. I had my eight year old help plan. So she’s sure to love everything!

We are enjoying our weekend with family over. And all the good food that comes with it!

Once a Week

We only had one “sickness” last week…a strange pink eye type thing or allergic reaction. We’re not sure. At least it was short-lived. Here’s hoping this week is totally illness free!

Farm Life

I was quite busy in the kitchen last week. Hopefully I don’t have to work too hard this week. But kids sure do eat a lot!

The countdown to becoming real farmers is on! We’ll soon have our first chickens. The whole family is excited.

Now it’s time to get back to hosting and having fun with family. Enjoy your week and some nourishing food.This week's kid-friendly real food meal plan includes sloppy joes and stir fry. I might even do a repeat and have taco Tuesday again!

Another week. Another fever.

I’m starting to think at least one child will have a fever every week until winter is over. Thankfully it was another short-lived thing.

We have a busy week ahead with orthodontist, music, Spanish, piano and out-of-town guests! That means I’ll be busy in the kitchen any  chance I get.

In the Kitchen

I have a lot of fun food I’d like to make. But I’m not sure I’ll have enough time. Here is my list of potentials.

Looking at that list I may need to have a full week of cooking class for my kids instead of any other school work.

How’s Your Thyroid?

Don’t forget that The Thyroid Secret starts March 1! You don’t want to miss this FREE event that could have a huge impact on your health.

We are finally over the hump of another round of odd sickness. Even I had three days straight of some strange bowel thing. I am pretty much over this winter and will welcome spring with open arms any time.

It actually feels like spring this weekend (hooray for lots of time outside in the sun!!). But I know it’s not here to stay.

Fun in the Kitchen

Slowly but surely we’ve been finding more time for fun in the kitchen. Last week we even made a couple batches of play-doh! The kids had a blast with that.

This week I hope to find time to make a pie (since my husband has been asking for pie for a couple months now). I might have to make a new batch of graham crackers too. We’ve been enjoying them (a lot!). This time I want to make my pumpkin spice version.

Healthy Living

In case you haven’t seen it yet I wanted to be sure you heard about The Thyroid Secret coming up in March. I know so many women who are impacted by thyroid problems (including myself). I can’t wait to tune in. Sign up HERE so you don’t miss it.

Nourishing Food

I’m planning simple meals as always. But still focusing on nutrition. If you don’t already come follow me on Instagram and get a better look at what we eat throughout the week.

Not Again…

Fever strikes again. Didn’t we just get through a round of this? I keep telling myself…we’re half way through February. Just a few more weeks until the weather starts to shift and we can get outside more and get rid of the sick germs.

So far it’s only one child. We’ll see if it spreads or not.

Working Light

I’m keeping my kitchen work fairly light just in case others get sick. If we end up with extra time we can add in some fun baking projects, like chocolate chip cookies and homemade Golden Grahams®.

You may notice that the blog is pretty quiet lately. I’m hard at work on other projects. Hopefully in time I’ll be able to share more recipes and natural health posts with you. In the mean time you can browse through my hundreds of recipes and check out this Women’s Wellness series over at Kitchen Stewardship. It is amazing!

Here is our kid-friendly real food meal plan for the week. I’m still trying to think of a special Valentine’s Day treat. Maybe some homemade chocolates. What’s on your menu?
